It wasn't great, but it wasn't the bloated and pointless Chimera Ant arc. That arc just makes everything before it look great.

I haven't seen Hunter x Hunter yet, but what I've heard about the Chimera Ant arc is actually the biggest enticement I've seen yet.

All I know about Berserk is that at some point a horse rapes a woman, graphically on panel, at some point and it makes me hesitant to check it out.

That doesn't happen, though. A lot of worse things happen before and after that, but its still one of my favorite mangas.

The best tournament arc is Battle City, tho not the finals, just the main part leading up to the finals.

Nothing can make greed island look great.

Best tournament arc is the first Dragonball world tournament and it isn't even close

I don't really care much about shounen battle animes but HxH is really good.

My Hero Academia now that is straight the most milequetoast poo poo ever. It is not even bad enough to be funny and feels like a complete rip off other cartoons/anime.

Okay, so we're talking about anime and I feel like I'm to blame- mainly because of my avatar even if that's all I'm guilty of- I gotta be honest, I have no idea what CalArts means and what shows are using that style. Like, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Superjail, Samurai Jack, Ren & Stimpy, those are distinct styles but hell if I can say who's behind what though.

"CalArts style" today means having a bean-shaped head and a big grin. Like this:



There's nothing inherently wrong with the art style, but it pops up pretty often and as such has become shorthand for "lazy," even though you can find different character designs in the above shows. The recent Thundercats reboot is emulating the style, which isn't a great sign.

Basically, it gets a bad rap due to overexposure.

This got buried but I enjoyed watching it. It reminded me of the how the internet and gaming cultures of the 90's-early 2000's was. We never had dial up, my fathers job overseas made getting a decentish internet connection justifiable even then, but we were still dependent on magazines with their games, mods and programs included in the CDs.

One thing I didn't mention is that having dial-up internet kept me in the dark on how fast internet was between 1999-2014 and even now I don't fully understand how fast internet is especially in tech-y places like the Bay Area. I get about 450kb/sec right now and the idea of there being 250mb/sec internet sounds like witchcraft. I don't know averages for any particular year. As far as I know, there has always been lightning fast internet available to people while I was stuck with dial-up.

Oh I saw the thread had been talking about Berserk, about a year ago I wrote an essay about the anime series from the nineties. I guess its what the kids call a think piece, http://reddebreksbowl.blogspot.co.u...no-masters.html

To be honest I don't remember much about writing it , I guess its just the way my mind works, but I've started reading the manga and so far it doesn't seem to contradict any of it and since this is the thread for shameless self promotion sharing with an interested audience I thought why not?
