Up to date with Shin Sekai Yori after putting on hold for a long time and man I can't express how friggin brilliant Shin Sekai Yori is. Sure, it may have some problems in "presentation consistency" (can seem a tad fast paced at bits, and some of the way the visuals are presented does not always work) but in terms of pure concept, themes, this show has very few rivals. At least in potential. I will be severely disappointed if this doesn't end well cause I see this as the anime of the last 5 years for myself (only a couple of series from 2006-07 appear to match it).
I would say this is around Game of Thrones enjoyment level for me.
Been reading a fair few reviews and receptions of Tamako Market, and it's been quite mixed. No, it's not the "moe-hater" crowd complaining its the next K-on, it's more the "moe" crowd complaining the bird got too much focus .
Tamako Market - That bird is gonna make or break the show for me. I'm pretty much watching the series for "Mr. Keyneth Archibald reborn into an animal figure apart being murdered by Kiritsugu". If the focuses too much on the cute girls doing cute things, then it's probably gonna be a drop.
Let's see what path you take Kyoani! Bird pandering not moe pandering plz.
I tried, but just couldn't get into it. I read the Moribito novel (the first one) and it's good, but Kamiyama really added a lot of quality to it in his adaptation. I just figured without his presence, KnSE didn't have the same magic.
