I've had a couple shows that, from my initial impression, turned out to be WAY different then what I first anticipated.
Hunter x Hunter is a show where the initial impression is much different then what it actually turns out to be. Everything about the first few episodes is quite childish, from the boppy, happy soundtrack to the happy art. I thought, basically, I was going to be watching a show sort of like Fairy Tail, someone joining a group of people and going on adventures all while trying to find his father.
How very wrong I was. And how wonderfully glad I am that I WAS wrong.
I watched Madoka Magica while it was airing, and honestly that was the best way to watch it I think, before there were any kinds of spoilers available.
There was certainly foreshadowing from the get go on what this shows true nature was, but honestly I did not expect it to take the turn it did, down a very dark and twisted road. I hadn't really seen any magical girl series that weren't happy and "love/friendship triumphs over all" kinds, so this really was a breath of fresh air to me.
I am also guilty of misjudging both Clannad and Yona of the Dawn for the same reason.
With both of them I saw promo art that was basically, in Clannad's case, a bunch of girls in high school uniforms and Yona surrounded by a bunch of feminine guys. I assumed, because of these, both of them were going to be generic harem.
Instead, Yona of the Dawn was about someone being thrust in to a situation completely different then what they are used to, taking responsibility for their actions and their destiny and becoming the leader that is needed in a time of crisis. It's an incredible adventure tale and while there are slight, and I mean very slight, hints of multiple guys liking the main girl, there is only really one relationship that amounts to anything in a romantic way and the show knows to prioritize the adventure over the romantic drama.
Clannad may appear to be a harem, but truly it is nothing of the sort. It's definitely a character drama, and some extremely strong romantic elements but it never ventures in to harem territory, nor really any of the ecchi undertones that I am used to for a show that presents itself in the way this one does.
What happens if toast lands on the floor jelly side down?
I believe protocol dictates that it can be picked up, and still used for the least favorite childs lunch. The remaining floor jelly goes to any interested party who is the victor of an ass race. Starting point is the living room, and as always, first one to the kitchen wins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aanuVblbIiY
How did the Millennium Falcon make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs?
@LegacyFunUser7875 hmm. That's similar to one of my duplicate accounts; I had accounts with the name Shirobane on both the US and UK sites and, now the databases are merged, they both show with that username in My Account but one comes up in the forums as @Shirobane255.
Unless you have multiple accounts also there must be a mismatch with your forum account in the SSO.
Jan 31 -Super Bonus I can't do math day: Best Live Action Based On An Anime
I will admit that I haven't seem a lot of live action adaptions, but one I did really like was the Usagi Drop live action movie.
While this adaptation isn't exactly like the anime (can't comment on the manga since it doens't exist winkwink), but does at least start off the same. I will say that is did make me cry, so that was something that didn't happen when I was watching the anime.
