Hey D_S Whatcha Watchin’?

Feel free to use this page to discuss how your opinions suck compared to mine.

 

Current Show Ratings – v31.S

  • Scores are not based on the episode, but my overall impression of the series by that point.
  • Don’t expect plebeian logic to apply.

Dark_Sage says:

Bakuraku was… a lot better than expected. HxC rocking.

Dark_Sage says:

It was super duper gay. So yes.

Dylan says:

What sub group did you use? Or just HS/CR?

Solaristics says:

Only one out is HS/CR

Dylan says:

oh, my bad, seems bad anyway

Dark_Sage says:

What does being slightly pretty and nothing else get ya? About a 3/10. Fuck Glasslip.

Kamica says:

Is the target audience for PriPara 8-year old girls?

Dark_Sage says:

And 30-year-old men. It definitely has something for both.

Minachi says:

110. DAMN.

Welp says:

>Sword Art Online II ∞
( ಥ_ಥ)

Anon says:

Spoiler alert: It’s Sinon’s butt.

Dark_Sage says:

I jerked it way more to her eye.

But yes, the butt was an acceptable third-round pick.

Ace says:

Still waiting for someone to make a gif of them hot gluing that eye

Kamica says:

Dramatical Murder was worse than Shounen Hollywood. Really.

Dark_Sage says:

No, I don’t believe you. That can’t be possible. It can’t be. ;_;

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, I’m gonna have to say Hollywood was worse. Mostly cuz of that shit-ass art.

Humanity says:

I take it that you recommend watching the new Sailor Moon, then? As someone who’s never seen anything Sailor Moon related before, I was kind of interested.

Period says:

>taking any of these ratings seriously

Humanity says:

You act as though his taste is fallible.

Dark_Sage says:

Uhh, it’s more for nostalgia than anything. Sailor Moon did a lot of cool things when it hit, but it’s not exactly a must-watch show now.

Fuwaa says:

I just figure anything he puts under 6 is not worth watching for anyone, and anything above 10 is trolling.

Except for SAO2 which is definitely worth its ∞ rating.

fjdoooo says:

nfp, fff, kaylith or commie for tokyo in terror?

Dark_Sage says:

Good question.

NexXKinn says:

I don’t know how to answer this.

fjdoooo says:

the answer is commie btw

NexXKinn says:

Oh my gosh, commie.
so much quality.
http://puu.sh/a8M7r.webm

Solaristics says:

Could hardly read any of those, but that was pretty epic.

Fugiman says:

If you watch it once every episode, you’ll probably have puzzled together the lyrics by the time the OP changes. It’s a fun puzzle!

Also it’s more readable in the proper resolution.

qwerty says:

Kara for the sake of letting the audience understand the song is SO 2013.

Progressive Commie! Best Commie!

Minachi says:

Wow. 10/10

jabashque says:

0/10 fugipls

Fugiman says:

You’re welcome

Kamica says:

Why is Jinsei a 7? It’s terrible. Zero redeemable qualities.

I’ll never understand why you like bad slice-of-life like Soul Eater NOT and Jinsei, yet hate good ones like Non Non Biyori.

Dark_Sage says:

I’m fine with slice of life, but loli slice of life mostly makes me want to burn down a Japanese elementary school. They’re so fucking annoying.

Fuwaa says:

Which group’s Jinsei do you recommend? Normally I just go with the first one I see, but they changed “You haven’t heard?” to “Are you an idiot?” so I think I’ll avoid that group…

Xythar says:

There is only one choice for Jinsei now.

Dark_Sage says:

Zero-Raws.

RealBirdy says:

Omg so brutal. D_S you scare me. :(

Hairy says:

What the hell is your problem with Jinsei? It’s fun. What, don’t you like fun?

Kamica says:

SNAFU, Sket Dance, Medaka Box, Love Lab, and Gintma are some examples of shows that share the same concept. All of em’ better than Jinsei.

Ace says:

Only SKET Dance and Gintama are good in that list though.

Kamica says:

Love Lab had a few good moments here and there. Medaka Box Abnormal ep12 was great. SNAFU is a top 10 show of the 2010s and if you don’t think so get better taste?

Ace says:

SNAFU was cringe as fuck. It just pandered to socially awkward people to get them to agree with it

Beep says:

I agree with Ace…SNAFU was just so hard to watch…

Jark says:

I think you missed the point of SNAFU if you thought it was pandering to socially awkward people.

Anonymous says:

You can’t be serious.

Ace says:

^
See :^)

Solaristics says:

Non non was also trash though.

Kamica says:

I’ll tell ya what. If you can list some moe slice-of-life that you think is good, i’ll explain why Non Non Biyori is better.

Kristen says:

Yuru yuri.

Kamica says:

1. They rarely leave the club room.
2. Has “yuri” in the title yet has no actual yuri (only teases).

The lesbian in Non Non Biyori has actual character beyond “ooohhhhhh Yui….my life is without meaning when you’re not around.”

Ace says:

“moe” and “good” shouldn’t be in the same sentence

Fuwaa says:

Right! Redundancies like that should be avoided.

Ace says:

This guy gets it!

sjoe says:

Graphs where? You had promised you’d considerate them. I am disappoint.

NexXKinn says:

give me reasons to continue watch AgK.
I’m going to drop it.

Beep says:

Whatever happened to Majimoji Rurumo being shit-tier?

Dark_Sage says:

It’s a cute little story. Hard to hate on kawaii.

ilikeit says:

This is an awesome shit.
Which group do you use to watch this anime?

Dark_Sage says:

[Nanashi]

LotusGG says:

Clever.

Dark_Sage says:

Glasslip is like School Days but without the bonus of tits. In other words, it is potentially the worst anime ever.

Fyurie says:

It’s been pretty bland so far, yeah.

Googol says:

You had it pretty easy if you think that’s one of the worst anime ever lol

Darkseid says:

No he’s right. It’s the worst…there are many anime “worse” than this but they are so bad they are actually good…this is just bad.

Pelfmiester says:

I’m surprised you hate Glasslip so much, yet are still watching it. You already have 4 shows dropped. And speaking of which, why’d you drop Ilya? You missed out on all the loli yuri kissing.

Dark_Sage says:

The kissing’s on the internet, so I can skip all the talking bits without needing to download the show and fast-forward to the good stuff.

Glasslip I’m continuing with BECAUSE it’s awful. Gotta go through hell to appreciate heaven. And in this case, gotta watch Glasslip to appreciate re-watching Queen’s Blade S2.

Sky says:

Yeah, Glasshit is so fucking awful. Especially episode 12. I don’t even know what the fuck is going on anymore. It’s like the staff don’t give a single fuck with this show. I hope David-kun really die in the last episode.

Fuwaa says:

Seems like you’re enjoying this season, D_S. I’m not sure I’ve seen so many shows at or over 8 on this ranking before.

Dark_Sage says:

It’s a dece season. Though I don’t have time, so… lots of drops incoming.

Humanity says:

So I wanted to watch Tokyo Ghoul, but I’ve heard about it being censored a lot. Do you think it would be worth it to wait for the BD’s? Or would it be fine to just watch it now.

Googol says:

Only when the BDs will come out you’ll know whether it’s worth it or not. So far, despite the censoring, it’s still decent.

Dark_Sage says:

Just watch it now. Waiting is effort.

Kiraly says:

> Kuroshitsuji 8
> Bakumatsu Rock 8
> Love Stage 8

Is Dark_Sage turning into a fujoshi? Dun dun dun

Solaristics says:

He always has been one.

Dark_Sage says:

Solar knows me all too well.

Welp says:

>Free 10

lel

Gary says:

Kuro obv underrated.

GeassGx says:

Chihiro or Sekai for Gekkan Shoujo?

Welp says:

Just pick HS.

Kamica says:

When Dark_Sage doesn’t do a review for a show, I usually default to Crunchyroll/HorribleSubs for non-funimation stuff.

And since Nozaki isn’t a funi show, it’s safe to use HorribleSubs.

Dark_Sage says:

Fuck Tokyo ESP.

Solaristics says:

Good choice. It’s terrible.

Anonymous says:

First episode was pretty cool, but it really went downhill from there. At this point, it’s one of the worst shows of the season.

Hairy says:

It can’t be worse than Glasslip.

LotusGG says:

Yes, it can.

Solaristics says:

They’re equally terrible. Rail Wars takes the cake though.

Zelot says:

Just watch Rail Wars knowing it’s bad, it becomes way more enjoyable with that mindset.

Anonymous says:

At least Rail Wars! has decent fanservice and cute girls. Tokyo ESP has nothing going for it.

LotusGG says:

At least it has boobs and *cof* the animation is good.

Dark_Sage says:

Just in case anybody’s wondering why I’m still watching Momo Kyun Sword…

LotusGG says:

Didn’t you say you don’t need porn?

qwerty says:

Let me guess, his mirror broke and he’s waiting for the new one to come.

LotusGG says:

Or maybe he’s fattened and is now waiting for the new bikini he bought online to arrive.

Nexxkinn says:

So, do you really like Tokyo Ghoul, D_S?

Dark_Sage says:

Generally if I’m lying or exaggerating, I’ll try to make it obvious. Tokyo Ghoul I legitimately enjoy.

Solaristics says:

It’s a shame it was so rushed…. You prob would’ve enjoyed it more.

Kamica says:

MAL Glasslip rating: 5.83
http://myanimelist.net/anime/23079/Glasslip

An even worse rating than other notoriously shitty shows this year such as Dai Shogun and Shounen Hollywood.

Dark_Sage says:

We knew those would be shit though. Glasslip broke my fucking heart.

PP says:

Only show below it this year (not counting shorts and kids stuff) is Momo Kyun Sword, and only by like 0.3, Glasslip will probably drop below that soon.

LotusGG says:

momo has hot tan onee-san
glasslip has chickens

Dark_Sage says:

Which is bullshit since Momo Kyun was good.
