Apparently your current Prime Minister, Trudeau, is really impressing people internationally and most recently with his knowledge on quantum computers. Sounds like you might have a rare case of a worthy leader.
Again, thanks for that chat a couple of days ago. I needed it at the time.
I don't have issues with people overall liking those final episodes. You did, Kanon did, thundrakkon did. But the three of you were still able to admit there were flaws within them and that things could have been done better. Some people are just living in denial and using the fact both the director and the author were figuring out ways to do conclusions at the time to justify the issues found within the final episodes.
As I've said countless times (but hey, those dominating the thread never bother to listen), the fact things are different isn't my issue. The fact the director threw the character development/meaning of several characters out the window and re-did things in the hope of making it more like a thriller - that is what irks me. Erased's strength has always been its characters and the human aspects of those involved. The thriller aspect has been its biggest weakness - because heck, we always knew who the villain was. Removing the why altogether, as we discussed the other day, is a big deal. Some other people I've spoken to and shown the manga to - they understood. One of the biggest complaints about how things turned out is that Yashiro was a weak villain, particularly in the final episodes. Well...Chapter 31 and 32 say otherwise...but the residents of Mount Pious are out to prevent people from being able to find out. Good thing PMs exist.
But meh. I've moved on. I've got Orange and ReLIFE in July to look forward to. Kana Hanazawa as Naho in Orange....that pairing is going to a dream come true.
Can't. PMing doesn't work due to something that's happened over the last 24 hours that's now denying me access to almost any website and preventing the running of any game requiring an online collection.
Just about had it with trying to keep things running. Every time I fix this, another problem that's bigger seems to emerge.
And there is no way I'm posting in that thread ever again after the residents of Mount Pious are dancing the El Strutto in the Erased thread.
Feel free to VM me or PM me about Boku Dake as a whole, whichever you'd prefer. If there's a lot of criticisms you want to get off of your chest, that's fine. Anything you want to say about the show is fine, and I'm very curious to hear your thoughts on it as a whole.
However, you should know that I really liked the finale. My post on it here.
If you're planning to marathon Rakugo in the near future, please note that there will be 13 episodes, so there are 2 left to air.
Schwarzesmarken has definitely done more things right than wrong, particularly in the 2nd half. Just don't expect too much of it. When it had to cull as much backstory/early days stuff as it did, character development for side characters was inevitably going to suffer. But they made some changes - particularly those from Episode 7 onwards - that improved things overall, despite the protestations of hardcore LN fans.
