LET THE DISCUSSION BEGIN


This is the place where anime episodes that everyone will watch will be discussed on a weekend basis for now. Every Monday a new episode(s) discussion will start. I hope everyone will join in and voice their opinions on the episode(s). Even if you have already seen the anime It would be nice to rewatch it with the group and discuss it on a episode by episode basis.

For the Monday coming up the discussion will be on the first two episodes of Futakoi Alternative




NOTE: please debate opinions but do not bash someone for what they think, we all think differently, thanks.

Episode 1:

Well, to start, the first episode is very random, thrilling and action packed right from the beginning. It actually just throws you right into the mix of things without really bothering to with the normal introductions most anime seem to have. In this respect, you are forced into the plot to find out things for yourself, although with just a little thought it is easy to understand what is happening despite to constant scene switching and back flashes. Because of this, the first episode doesnt really explain much and leaves the audience to continue watching if they want to find out more. Its clever really, if you dont watch the next episode, it is hard to determine wheather or not you actually like the show.

Episode 2:

The second episode is where the explainations truely begin, however, they are not fully revieled as of yet. Instead, only small fractions are introduced here and there leaving you to guess and make assumptions in order to fill in the gaps. This episode has a little more background story on the main charecters while remaining extreamly calm, compared to the first episode, taking you through what can be assumed as a "normal" day for the main charecters. Humor and comedy is introduced giving this episode a slightly different feel from the first one. Also, a little bit of their personal relationships are revieled which explains only bits and pieces as to why they are together. Most of which is still yet a mystery.

I enjoyed the humor in the first episode and yay for the nonexistant laws of gravity. Man I wish I could work somewhere like they do in the 2nd ep, nothing to do, no worries, and a hole in the roof. I find the episodes are pretty relaxing. Ah look a UFO, wait sorry thats the moon.

Haha, sry it took so long for me to catch up... was watching other anime along the way...

Anyways, well where to start. First two episodes, odd, perplexing, scattered, interesting, and quite a bit of confusion. That's not to say those are bad things, but rather mystifying. Their sense of cinematography is evident with their quick screen transitions, to keep it up beat, and wacky scenes. Quite a bit of exageration, and pretty comical in that sense. And as AJ said, it draws you in! Which is nice, but I can't imagine having to wait for the next episode to come out as I waited. But, I shall go through the grief of finding out how it's like when we watch the next two episodes next week!!

On a side-note, are we holding the discussion at the beginning of every week, and ending it at the weekend? Or were we going to start it on friday and end it on monday/weekend?

Alright... I'm gona get the ball rolling here and be the devil's patron for the remainder till we get someone who can replace me...

You guys remember in the first ep where the twins were fighting the *ahem* tentacle blue goey monster??? Whats up with that??? hmm???

What about their constant scene transitions... Don't you think it's too much??

Or the loose solidity with all the "flash and no substance" intros???

*sigh* I'm bad at being the devil's patron...
