Wow, I forgot that I showed you that tag a while ago. That was a very interesting read. I have no interest in seeing Game of Thrones especially how overhyped the show was. It was also annoying seeing people check out this grimdark show, but they'd be too scared to check out Texhnolyze for example. I know Spider-Man 3 wasn't the best movie in the series, but I thought the hatred was overblown. Okay, that version of Venom was very underwhelming, but I didn't think it was horrible as people said.
Slice-Of-Life can be hit or miss, but I seem to tolerate live-action stuff especially with neorealism movies. Very good point about Finding Nemo. Even as a kid, I thought that movie was so overrated besides a few funny moments here and there. When it comes to Takeshi Obata works: Death Note<Hikaru no Go every day of the week! I get frustrated how popular it was over HNG even though I can kind of understand why it got huge given the time period it came out.
You actually did my little bonus category! Hahaha! I saw that version of Phantom of the Opera when I was in high school, but didn't remember too much besides the songs.
Thanks for making this post!
You've definitely been encouraging people to check out Texhnolyze for a long time! Yes, it's really a shame people weren't willing to watch it. Word of mouth goes a long way, I think, and GOT just really picked up the hype train in the public eye! Even though I'm not a fan, I do think it's really unfortunate that the show ended on such a sour note for many fans.
Venom was definitely underwhelming in Spider-Man 3, so I'd be curious to check out his portrayal in his films! I still think it's probably a very different version of the character than I remember from the 90's cartoon adaptation I grew up loving.
Nichijou almost made me completely remove Slice-of-Life genre off my list to select something else for that entry! It's really that good of a show when you want to watch something non-committal but that still has an ongoing plot for many of its characters if you pay close enough attention. Plus its over-the-top, out-of-nowhere humor is really funny to me!
Would you consider Hikaru no Go a sports anime? That's another genre I haven't had much interest in getting into, but I think I'd like HNG based on your articles about it.
Thanks for taking the time to comment (and walk down memory lane with me for some of these entries)!
Quite true. Then again, I'm a fan of Yoshitoshi ABe's works. Hahaha! Maybe I was over-exaggerating, but it seems like there wasn't a big rush of people willing to watch it and it does have a cerebral avant-garde presentation while mixing so many genres in-between. I heard the ending wasn't great for GOT, but I wonder how people are going to react to that spin-off that just came out.
I hear you right there. I didn't want to see the guy from That 70s Show playing Eddie/Venom. It made no sense at all. I'm not sure about the new versions, but Tom Hardy does make a more believable Venom and he voices both Eddie and the titular symbiote.
Gotcha. I still have to see that anime after hearing lots of good things about it. I think you'd also like Azumanga Daioh if you like Nichijou.
More so sports/games, but the tropes are there albeit with great writing and tons of creativity. HNG is hands-down the most innovative shonen work I've read/seen.
No problem! It's good to hear back from you on your blog.
There's nothing more frustrating than recognizing a good thing that nobody seems to appreciate!
From what chatter I've seen, it seems House of the Dragon has been getting really positive feedback! Seems like back to form for many GOT fans.
I have to say, while I haven't always been a fan of the writing for Tom Hardy's characters, I have tremendous respect for his skills as an actor. I was really intrigued to hear that the Venom movies were actually very funny!
I'll have to add Azumanga Daioh to my list! Thanks for the recommendation!
