    As per the whole Euphonium thing, I had not noticed the signs of a lower budget, maybe I wasn't paying that much attention to the animation quality, with the possible exception of the overall image detail seemed to decline a bit during Reina's "dead fish" face, but that might have been an intentional stylistic element. Seems to have garnered attention on the forum either way.

    The pool episode though, is oftentimes a classic example of filler material, thought in this case, they at least used it to progress the Nozomi arc. Also, as for Natsuki and Yuko's Engrish T-shirt argument, Yuko's made at least marginally more sense, so she wins!

    As for the plot, I haven't gotten around to episode 3 due to reality, but I have been spoiled on the fact that they drop some more drama into it with regard to Taki's past and the whole Mizore-Nozomi situation.

    Edit: Just watched episode 3, and the drama is real!

    As for Reina, based on Season 1 and the first two episodes, it does seem like she is bouncing between crushing on Taki and yuri-baiting. Maybe she's going for the harem ending!

    Shakespeare it definitely is not ... but if nothing else it is entertaining.

    At least for me. ^^

    Recently got almost caught up on Hibike!Euphonium Season 2, or at least the second episode, and then randomly entered the thread and noticed your breakdown of the episode.

    Personally, my thoughts on the lastest developments are: "Ayano Takeda and KyoAni, are you trying to insinuate the Reina may be heterosexual!?"

    Mahoutsukai no Yome ... OVA 1 was picked up by CR today ... might consider giving it a try if you were not already planning to! It's quite something! ^^

    The presence of karice67 became far more pronounced during the airing of Erased. That was where she was most vocal. She became rather obnoxious towards anyone who felt the manga was better, particularly in the final episodes as the two heavily diverged at that point. Using a director interview as an excuse, she claimed that the anime was above reproach/criticism for taking the path it did.

    Original ending, I have no issue with. But when the final episodes throw a ton of character development/behaviours out the window then ask you to believe in something that utterly contradicts all that came before in terms of logic/consistency, I do think there is a basis to be critical of it.

    And therein lies the issue. karice67 took extreme issue with that and was hostile to any person who preferred the manga. And she went up in arms at literally any comment that she perceived to be a spoiler. Ironically, almost all of them weren't. But as a mod explained to me, they could be perceived to be and had to be removed. I certainly wasn't in the wrong at any point, according to the mods. But karice67 took the self-righteous stance atop Mount Pious and cried foul at any manga person, then went into the manga thread, exhibited the behaviour that she had criticised herself then left and intentionally denied any right of reply. After the final episode, those that had issues with the ending or wanted to know how the manga did it messaged me for it - somewhere between 30 to 40 people. Yeah....people did care/want to know but karice67 had intimidated them to having to pursue it privately.

    What she fails to understand is that people weren't taking issue with the anime taking a different direction. It was how it did it. A sheer lack of consistency, failure to justify/properly establish certain characters. And that she refused to allow a contrary yet valid opinion to be discussed. I had a fairly passionate stance of being very crushed after the second to last episode. She went on a verbal assault and tried to have me found out of line for it. The mods didn't agree with her. After she gave some verbal attacks to Triple_R and Tempester, I had a chat with the mods and decided I'd had enough of posting there and most threads in general. Thought it might have been time to trust people could be civil overall. Sadly, the presence of people like karice67 - despite their intentions - make it utterly volatile and spiteful. Which she did with you, even though you had a valid inquiry.

    You haven't missed much so far this year. Aside from Rakugo and She And Her Cat, there hasn't been much else to keep for the long-term. Rakugo was a very adult, different, well done depiction of rakugo performances from decades ago and the ills/negatives of the times along with people in general. She And Her Cat is Shinkai-influenced. 4 short episodes about a woman and her cat. Kana Hanazawa really owned her role despite the limited time. Erased should have remained a winner but fell apart late - the manga is worth reading though since it did hold it together.

    So I said 'so far.' Here's why - July is going to be a good season. That I am certain of.


    Those in particular are three titles I think you'd find worth viewing. Orange actually managed to top the bestseller chat in the US with its 2nd/final omnibus a couple of weeks ago despite a sea of shounen and still held #2 last week. Amanchu is from the same author as Aria. ReLife is somewhere in between Erased and Orange content-wise.

    Orange goes to some dark places but handles the subject matter relatively well, looks good and obliterates shoujo tropes for the greater part. Kana Hanazawa is going to voice the lead female, Naho - I feel she is the best suited person for this role.
    Amanchu is about diving in the countryside. It's soulful and rejuvenating like Aria was. Simple but delightful. Aria staff are back so should be in good hands.
    ReLIFE is an intriguing mix of black humour, reality and optimism. It's a bit more dramatic/romance slanted but it still has the kind of maturity and refreshing approach Erased and Orange also have.

    Other possibilities are Danganronpa 3 in two lots (yeah, anime meh but original game for the first one was stellar). And eventually the new Shinkai movie will emerge by the end of the year. It has a world premiere in the US in July and then Japan cinema run in August.

    For those with tastes different to mine, the moe people will have their new Love Live and Rewrite while the shounens get their next helping of Food Wars. Those needing gory action will have the long overdue new lot of Berserk.

    My most cynical friends are looking forward to Orange, Amanchu and ReLIFE, as they've also read the source material and are very convinced by them. I think they may be worth you giving a go. Because we all know October will be freaking overrun with Attack on Titan 2 and good luck to anything else that season.

    I responded because you were the latest person karice67 has been rude/self-righteous towards. For months she's acted like she's the queen of AS. Gave up on talking in threads for the greater part because of all the flames she fans and conversations she steers to her point of view.

    We've even brought a coffin. It's a little small, so deal with it.
