Rewatching Suggestions Thread anon 03/10/2023 (Fri) 05:26:02 No. 239 [Reply]
I'm trying to rewatch some anime I remember fondly to see if I can enjoy them the second time around. This time is Kyou no 5 no 2 or Today in Class 5-2 and I would like to post the experience in a few days. I would like to hear your experiences and suggestions on rewatching stuff too.

Even when I was a kid I had superb taste so if I rewatch something, I usually enjoy it as much. The other day I said I should rewatch something I DIDN'T enjoy all that much and set up FLCL again and actually enjoyed it a hella of a lot more than I did the first time I watched it.
>>239 The good parts were still there but the old cliché tropes were worse than what I remembered. I was surprised to hear anime used the same song "Secret Base (Kimi ga Kureta Mono)" from anohana. https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm14603545?from=8
>>240 That's nice. I also recently rewatched FLCL after not having seen it for the better part of a decade or so, and I would say I appreciate it even more now too (though I've always enjoyed it). I took the opportunity to watch it with the director's commentary track as well which I'd recommend. Lots of fun information to be gathered from it even if you consider yourself pretty familiar with the anime already.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anon 11/03/2022 (Thu) 19:29:49 No. 157 [Reply]
Recently got around to watching it, and was pleasantly surprised to find myself loving it. Mystery was great, which was complimented by countryside setting. It really knows how to create tension and ambient atmosphere as it manage d to make me feel uneasy. I heard it's a VN adaptation and there is also a manga, so definitely going to check it out sometime in the future. What are you thoughts? Shion is the best girl.
3 posts omitted.
>>162 I was going to check out manga too. From what I have seen, I liked that it has varied art style by different illustrators. It's just that story is still fresh in my mind, so I am waiting a few weeks/months for it to fade away and experience most of it all over again. On a side note, what are your thoughts on OVAs like Rei, Kira, Outbreak and Nekogoroshi etc? Are they worth checking out?
>>163 It's best for you if you don't immediately dive into the manga, you'll just burn yourself out. Do as you said and come back in a couple of months. >On a side note, what are your thoughts on OVAs like Rei, Kira, Outbreak and Nekogoroshi etc? Are they worth checking out? They all are to an extent. The middle three episodes of Rei are the Saikoroshi arc which is set after the series and were pretty much universally seen as canon prior to Sotsugyou (and should still be seen as so considering how much of a trashfire it was). Kira is dumb noncanon fanservice stuff but a lot of people love the final episode so watch that at least. Nekogoroshi is a standalone episode which plays into the mystery of Hinamizawa and is very good for what it is. Outbreak is fun but trash and completely not canon. tl;dr Nekogoroshi, Rei 2-4 and Kira 5 are essential, but everything else is at least watchable.
>>164 >Sotsugyou What went wrong with it that it is almost universally hated? I never watched it cause of artstyle.

>>166 >awful artwork and animation >complete retread of the original but far worse in execution >butchered characterisation for the whole cast, but especially Rika and Satoko >Ryukishi marketing it as a remake when it was actually an unwanted sequel >tries to tie Higurashi into Umineko but cops out because he is a coward The better question would be what went right with it hint: the answer is nothing
Still didn't watch this, i lack the will to start it. Maybe i should watch it with a friend.

Anyone remember Birdy Decode? Late double OO but I feel like in spirit it fits in pretty good. Plus the openings and endings are great I still listen to them today. >>15 I watched this and I legit don't remember anything from it. >>139 I also vaguely remember this anime but I don't remember watching it Maybe my memory is just bad.
>>230 >I watched this and I legit don't remember anything from it. Funny, neither do I. I just remember enjoying it a lot.
Chrono Crusade was messy but it had an amazing ending. It's as if Gonzo wanted to atone for how much they butchered Hellsing by taking a similar IP and actually doing it justice.
>>233 Crusade was the first series I bought the entire DVD set for, long before I knew how to torrent things. God that ending was depressing. I have the ED song burned into my brain too at this point.

Fairy Musketeers Cendrillon did nothing wrong.

Have you read/seen it? I've been reading the manga for the past few days, it's pretty fun.
>>18 I have. To be fair, I love it for the art (as expected from Shaft), but not so much for everything else. While the humour in it is amusing at times, more often than not it can be difficult to understand for a non-Japanese, due to it's parodying of Japanese society. Moreover, it gets rather repetetive, especially that the anime spans three seasons. It's just not for me, although I can see why others may enjoy it.
