i talk about stupid animation drag..the moment-to-moment pacing ...you know the moment of certain action going to happen and things getting slow like ass with lot of unnecessary scene between the action
its like luffy gonna punch, in manga he immediately hit the guy but in anime, that simple scene take long time to execute, over drag the moment
I don't get what you're trying to say here. Newer OP is apparently slow but that doesn't change the fact that Naruto is almost 900 episodes because they have so much filler garbage that wasn't in the manga.

He’s talking about stuff like how it took Goku over three episodes to get off Namek. Or an entire episode to turn SSJ3. Naruto et al have so much anime only filler because they went out of their way to avoid that even if it still ended up being trash.

Dunno why he said DBZ didn’t have it though because DBZ was notorious for it.

I've been going on this Dragon Ball binge lately, I don't know what really triggered it. Been playing a lot of Xenoverse 2 on my Switch, and some of Fighterz in between. I just finished watching Dragon Ball Z again...it's kinda silly to rewatch an anime when I have so many I haven't watched yet, but I wanted to get refreshed since I was thinking about finally starting up Dragon Ball Super. Subbed to Funimation to give it a go. I remember not disliking the Buu Saga when I first watched, but yeah, it really does drag out way too long at times. I still loved the Cell Games, it just had the most satisfying fights of the series I think.

Oh, and as if I needed another reason to love my favorite J-pop group Perfume, I found this gif recently that just adds yet another reason for me to love them, hehe.



What I find kinda sad about this is that I think the first one is the most attractive of the bunch. I like boobs as much as the next guy, but they are just so comically huge. Also, holy shit, 900 episodes?! I kinda wanted to watch this series at some point, and I knew it was long, but holy shit that makes DBZ look like it has a short run.

Boobs are fine (3rd one) but Oda artstyle or anatomy is just "wacky". As for the series itself I wouldn't recommend it because of how long it is or because the characters just didn't grab me outside that jobber zoro.

I sampled three shows so I can watch something during the quarantine.

Dorei-ku The Animation 01
The premise was already a hard sell, but at least the ridiculous revenge subplot was slightly amusing. Won’t continue with it, though.

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia 01
That was funny. Yuuko’s past seems intriguing enough, and I liked the setup of having one in a group who can’t see her.

In/Spectre 01
I didn’t expect it to have long dialogues. The two leads and OST were fine. Not entirely hooked on it yet.

I agree. Look what they did to my Robin :(



Beautiful tan gone, boobs doubled in size, waist narrowed to nothing, and she no long has that sexy female Indiana Jones look to her. She looked like an Eastern European supermodel before, and now she just looks like a titmonster. And she got more flanderized and relegated to exposition, unfortunately.

I'm past the timeskip now, but I can honestly say I hate her and Nami's redesigns. Also Zoro's to an extent as well - his facial structure changed and he looks off from before.

Sanji's new neck is literally thicker than both of his old legs combined. All the new designs look retarded. Sometimes Luffy's eyes are spaced like 8 mile apart.

He's a slapstick rubber man. Of course his eyes will move.

Though now that you mention it, Sanji's neck is really massive. Like Liefeld big. Which I why I don't like Zoro's design. His other proportions are still similar though.

FUCK you Odor. Your art just gets more soulless as the years go on
That chart reminded me specifically, I think Tashigi and Smoker still look pretty great (from where I am in Punk Hazard now). Law looks about the same, but I figured the new characters from around Saobody would not change much. Rayleigh and the GILF were identical too, as were the Amazons.

Earlier Law looked cooler to me imo. Kinda creepy.

Would this be a good place to ask about any good western cartoons from the last few years? I try to keep tabs every now and then on what the various members from the original Avatar team are up to, but it doesn't look like they'll do anything of the same caliber in the near future. Maybe after the live action Netflix remake which will probably take forever. And that's still a big maybe.

They're both cringe edgelord fake deep shit.
I read a chapter of Fire Punch. I thought it was supposed to be shock humor.

You couldn't be more wrong if you tried. I don't get the tumblr comparison.

The first part is literally humor minus the OH MY PAIN bits. The "tranny" is a girl that wants to be a guy btw.
The second part is straight out of fucking Nier though. THAT is actual garbage.

muh feels. muh trannyness.
They didn't really focus much on that characters orientation save for a page or two. Also feels? Naga Luffy and Usopp cried over a ship. Gon cried over a dude he knew for a fucking week. This dude was burned alive for years without dying. I mean yeah people are allowed to feel idk what to tell you. (It is ok if you feel as well btw)

A page or two too much. You can't undo cringe.

Naga Luffy and Usopp cried over a ship.
And then it was done. The entirety of OP isn't muh feels or muh going merry.

Gon cried over a dude he knew for a fucking week.
Isn't he in like elementary school?

This dude was burned alive for years without dying.

should be in middle school by then

Do you also call Berserk edgy? There's plenty of sad shit in manga that doesn't make it bad. Again Fire Punch does suck but that is towards the second half. The first half was hilarious to me and the character you seem to hate is one of the better characters.

Berserk is literally edgy though. Edge isn't always a bad thing. Edge is good when it's actually cool. Violence Jack, Suehiro Maruo stuff, Wicked City, Urotsukidoji, etc.

He had an entire prison full of gay sex shit man! This girl had like 2 pages of this tops. In fact that is when it started going to shit. The rest was just trolling the MC, which was fucking great.

It is mostly a battle shonen yes that will never end yes.

Oh yeah. Just realised the Date a Live LN series is coming to an end when vol 22 is released on the 19th. Unless Tachibana decides to drag it out for another volume.

Quit spoiling Impel Down for me. It's probably just jokey bullshit like the stuff with Bon-chan anyway.

It's over halfway done. I hear it'll end in a couple years.

Didn't care much for it. Outside the animation I don't remember much and that isn't a good thing.

no i wasnt talk about that....its not about how much they padding to expand episode..this is not about padding or fillers

what i trying to said is, moment to moment animation execution itself...for example if you watch boku hero no academia, the scene where deku want to punch villain, he immediately punch in mere sec..we can fell the energy rush there...that kind particular, slick of execution while one piece on otherhand, for example scene where zoro fight pica ..in manga he just quickly cut the stones in blink an eye..but in anime, that particular action took more than seconds to execute....its like over bloated ..not to mention sometimes they even add unecessary scene between the frame like other character expression which is not presented in manga..this issue still presented despite upgraded pretty visual in wano arc

imagine in dragon ball, son goku punch giren but if it being done with these one piece style, that particular punch moment could take quite a time, slow, dragging the scene...they probably think it add impact and more context..but nope...it suck

Crossing fingers that this turns out to be, at least, decent.

Is the story actually good, or is it only popular cause it has kewl fights bro? Same as Demon Slayer is overhyped simply due to Ufotable putting in way more effort than the source manga deserved.

I'm biased more toward the fights than the story. There are some twists to it. As mentioned in the title, it's a story where the protagonist climbs a tower and gets progressively stronger. As such, expect certain characters who can no longer keep up to get left behind. The story still keeps my interest, at the very least.

Also, has anyone played the One Piece:
Fantastic little short arc with huge implications.
But will they be coming back to the Reverie / Levely arc is what I'm truly wondering? What do you think? Would have to at some point right? Otherwise, it's not fantastic, but completely inadequate. I've never seen an arc like that, that is cannon in One Piece so I'm a bit thrown off I guess

For the life of me I don' t get how people still defend that trash of an arc and praise kubo still. Some bleach fanboys are delusional.

My only hope is that the anime will be significantly rewritten and filled with good filler to make it better, but I don't have high hopes.

Kubo apparently will also put out the Burn the Witch mini series out in the summer and from what I have heard he already fully finished it. And it will also be animated.

I loved the HELL out of Bleach's first 63 episodes. After that (even ignoring filler), it was a slow descent into a shitshow. Don't really care about them finishing up the manga, but happy for its fans nevertheless.

Also, there is a very heroic sounding track that I don't know that just recently started playing (maybe during Zou) but definitely a few times during Whole Cake Island arc

Does anybody know which one I'm referring to? Incredibly motivating and inspiring instrumental, it almost sounds exactly what persistence and fighting and the payoff for it would sound like after a victory, if I had to describe it. They usually will play if for a good 10-15 seconds during a triumphant act or part in the anime

I'll try to find a scene with the track itself, but it's definitely a more recent song
