                1. @clayinthecarpet It's Kikko Hoshino from Concrete Revolutio. Check it out, it's a neat little show from last fall that despite some structural blemishes here and there was an incredibly confident and energetic experience.

                  1. @northernnarwhal Do you actually talk like that in real life

                    Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:16:03 UTC from web
                    1. @clayinthecarpet Usually, yeah. My written voice is generally just a more organized articulation of my spoken voice.

                      1. @northernnarwhal Ah.

                        Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:17:16 UTC from web
                        1. @clayinthecarpet It isn't the first time I've posted about the show here too, either http://rainbowdash.net/notice/4061972

                          1. @northernnarwhal Huh. Doesn't sound like my bag, honestly. I am honestly a weeb who greatly enjoys love stories or crazy stuff like Bakemonogatari and Madoka Magica.

                            Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:21:46 UTC from web
                            1. @clayinthecarpet Lucky you, I have two roommates that have lost their minds over Pretty Cure...

                              Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:22:58 UTC from web
                              1. @colfax Hrm. Looking it up.

                                Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:23:32 UTC from web
                              2. @colfax Oh my sweet god that looks terrible.

                                Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:25:24 UTC from web
                                1. @clayinthecarpet Apparently how awful it is depends on which series you watch.

                                  Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:27:14 UTC from web
                                  1. @colfax And considering there are 13 incarnations, I'm not particularly interested in trying my luck. heh

                                    Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:30:59 UTC from web
                                    1. @clayinthecarpet Want me to ask which is the best for a newbie viewer?

                                      Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:31:36 UTC from web
                                      1. @colfax Nah...I will stick with Sailor Moon when it comes to real magical girl stuff. The only reason I love Madoka Magica so much is that it turns the trope on its head and really surprises you with its amazing content and twists.

                                        Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:40:52 UTC from web
                                        1. @clayinthecarpet Yeah, one of the reasons they like it so much is because they're massive sailor moon geeks.

                                          Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:42:33 UTC from web
                                          1. @colfax See, I like "magical girl" as a storytelling vehicle, but I've never really watched a whole ton of Sailor Moon.

                                    2. @clayinthecarpet If you're looking for something more along the lines of the Monogatari series you should check out Katanagatari, which is an unrelated series by the same writer that features many of his distinct compositional elements (most notably lengthy, character driven conversations that are equal parts playful and insightful) but is also much more focused and contained than his other work (for better or worse). It's twelve episodes in length, though each episode is 50 minutes in length (so it's roughly the length of your average two cour show).

                                      Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:37:58 UTC from web
                                      1. @northernnarwhal CAN DO!

                                        Monday, 08-Feb-16 02:41:15 UTC from web
                                      2. @northernnarwhal I really enjoyed Katanagatari.

                                        1. @takePotato Knishesakenji Late reply, I really enjoyed it too! It had a really grand sense of scale while still retaining a really intimate sense of character dynamics, especially given the strength of its core relationship. Oh, and that soundtrack is just fantastic.

                            2. @clayinthecarpet I don't think it reaches the dramatic heights of either of those shows, but Concrete Revolutio (in spite having its own priorities) is pretty wild. That's arguably both one of its greatest strengths and setbacks, actually, it has so much to say but often times works for the space to articulate it. Thankfully its generally strong character writing elevates its drama to a point where it's still pretty much always engaging to watch in some capacity.
