Happy New Year DatsRight. Dude, don't ever stop posting. Even tho I differ with you a ton, and I mean a ton, I still greatly appreciate you. You're one of the stalwart posters of the forum and nothing can change that.
Btw, do you do fanfics by any chance? I'm seeing you writing in details about the issues of the Pokemon anime or any action animes in general about plot armors, so I thought it would be interesting to show us your skills on how things should be done and what you considered a perfect writing.
From your latest comment from the SM enjoyment thread. Well, mine is a fangame so you have a choice to make Serena win or lose, along with who hard you want her opponents to be. Nothing like the biased scripts from the anime.
Well, I also watched some other slice of life anime before like K-ON! and Nichijou, and I enjoyed them so I was fine with SM comedy as well. I'm not really battle obsessed, I'm looking for original/different interactions between humans/pokemons, which is why the baseball and pokemon swap episodes were memorable to me.
As for XY(Z), I wasn't really concerned about Team Rocket, since I started watching fully from that saga, so my mind was more fresh and can handle them. However, I was more concerned about how the cast were priotized by the producers/writers since I see them more often than TRio imo. And I get involved into discussions about the status quo and Serena, in which it seems people are making alot of arguments about them.
Hello, I wanted to reply here from your latest SM67 preview post because I'm worried that I'm going to drag it off-topic. Anyways, I might only watched XY(Z) fully but the issues that the show has along with the producers/writers insistence to keep the status quo, I told myself I would never beg/trust/hope/believe/depend things on them anymore after XY(Z) ended, because I was getting tired to complain/criticize on things that they would never listen. I watch SM as my passtime and out of curiosity what will happen next, but my expectations are much lower. So, I'm sorry if we disagree to each other. Also, I already got what I wanted from my fan project and proud of it, so I'm less concerned whether or not they're going to deliver what I want.
Despite the fact that I disagree with many of your views, you still seem to be one of the saner people around here and at least try to make arguments beyond "this series isn't exactly how I wanted it".
I don't think anything you had ever wrote was rubbish text. Most of the time I think you rather just very accurately hit the nail on the head. Though I guess because of that, very few people can find any words to counter your statements, not even me (well because I agree with you most of the time).
Hi. May I add you as friend? I think our thought are quite similar as I basically agree with everything you posted in the Pokemon Anime section. I like to be friend with someone that has an in-depth understanding of story-writing and metas of this franchise.
