I think I know exactly what you mean. They put on the exaggerated voices. Mr. Peanut Butter…
I’m just as annoyed as you probably are when people say “If don’t want to READ when I’m watching a movie”, like reading is the worst thing in the world, but I’m glad to hear that. I’ve been running around so much lately, that I generally only get to watch things when I’m going to bed, and I like to be able to understand the thing I’m watching after I close my eyes.
I’ve, um. ordered the series from a popular website based on your recommendation. Looking forward to it.
Good stories can be told with very sparse production quality, yes. I do think I have a bias. I realize that anime is more of a medium than a genre, and there are tons of divisions. I just remember that while my friends were gushing about dragon ball, I was trying to change the subject to ninja scroll or arimatage or anything else. I “am a very visual person”, I guess. I also thought those films had better stories. Maybe not… The animation was undeniably better. Attack on Titan is my latest favorite in that vein. I take the “slow pan over almost completely still images” technique as a sign of laziness (with exceptions/in general), and if you think that 90% of everything is crap, like I do, then you have to admit that most people wouldn’t put the money into animation if they weren’t in the top 10.
