that's quite insulting considering shaft created that horrible Vampire Bund anime
The only weak parts of NnA are the first and last episodes of both seasons. Everything inbetween was good and golden
>the scanlations are fucking terrible
What? No they're not. They're consistently high-res with perfectly readable and coherent English. Unless there are some older scans I'm not aware of or something. The only problem is that they're missing some chapters between when the scanlators stopped and Crunchyroll picked it up.
SHAFT rough order
Not included: Mahoromatic, Negima, Graffiti, other stuff
Their ep of Kino was good, too.
Thinking about Natsu no Arashi brings back a lot of good memories.
Arashi is a wonderful girl. The upbeat feeling of the show despte the actually tragic setting was quite interesting.
I remember lots of movement while characters did nothing but talk, there was always something to look at.
The bright colors being used constantly made me feel like "Summer", it was a nice feeling.
Salt guy showing up was always a blast. The story times were funny as heck. The Ops and Eds were wonderful. Bellybuttons.
This was Chiaki Omigawas first real role after Maka from Soul Eater, I loved her character in this. Actually I loved all the characters!
I miss this show. I miss Arashi. I love Arashi.
>No one will ever talk about Sasami-san anymore
What went wrong?
>not posting the GOAT anime of all time
Paniponi and Arakawa sucked, just like Nisekoi. I suppose Paniponi could be bumped up a tier, but it really hasn't aged well. Where's your list, I would also like to claim you have shit taste.
As someone who read the first bunch of the Sasami LNs.
Shaft did a great job in turning it into something watchable.
Nisekoi is general a great adaptation.
Koufuku was turned into a gimmick 4-koma into a comfy SoL series - also dat soundtrack!
Mekaku was busted from the very beginning because of Jin's micromanagement of the franchise.
Loved the character designs, it a had crazy retro touch which worked quite well with the theme of the show.
But how did the series even end? Is there a sumary of the ending or something?
Oh god what is this feeling I am feeling?
I didn't realize I cared so much for this show. It's like remembering an old crush.
I gotta rewatch this show
It was surprising how Salami-san was so average despite having such a wild and interesting premise, a cohesive, well developed theme, good characters, and a great OST. I don't know what it was lacking but it was just "meh." I felt like I should have enjoyed it much more than I did.
I am not sure how it ended. Acording to wikipedia the manga went on for a year after the second season ended, but I doubt there will ever be an S3
Such lovely character designs.
Also Soredemo is pretty fantastic.
It had the most delicious tomboy in it and lots of legservice. That's pretty much all I remember about it.
Yes, but he's not wrong. Shinbo's directorial position on most Shaft shows is in name only.
Jeez, it's sad how much less charming and expressive the animation art is compared to the storyboard.
I still prefer Arakawa. The source material had really good sense of humor, the voice cast was incredible, all OPs and EDs were awesome (especially the animation of Cosmos vs. Alien and Sawashiro's singing) and Shaft's style really fit the atmosphere of the series.
So far I've liked every single modern (Tsukuyomi and newer) Shaft show I've watched, excluding Mekaku City Actors (a mess production wise) and Nisekoi (generic boring harem), haven't seen Vampire Bund, though. In general I'd say Shaft has had really good luck picking its series to adapt.
Nope, I liked a lot, too. After listening to the opening a million times (also singing to it), the web radio and the cover songs (covers of old Japanese hits sung by the seiyuu), it really made me feel like rewatching it. The second season even apparently reaired recently and the raws are on Nyaa.
I've read the manga, which is excellent. If the anime is anywhere near as good, I'll watch it.
I don't think they improved the manga much. If anything, the manga is better because it's possible to read it more quickly than it's possible to watch the anime. God, Nisekoi sucks.
