Kinda wanna pick up Berserk again, but I don't really feel like indulging in stories of futile effort, where all the character's actions amount to nothing.
Haven't finished Golden Age but I did see the '97 adaptation. I just wish to know if the story gets better afterwards, or if it's just a meaningless spiral of despair like so much media I kinda got fed up with


Berserk's theme is the exact opposite of that and focuses on struggling and creating meaning in the world.

I watched both seasons of Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e, also known as Classroom of the Elite. At the time of writing the third season has not yet aired. Here are my thoughts:

This anime is about classes of exceptional students who compete with one another for ranking and currency within their school system. The story feels like it was created in the mind of a teenager, but it is watchable and does create suspense. The plot is sometimes impressively intricate and does a good job of weaving together the actions of many independent parties in a competitive environment. That's essentially what Classroom of the Elite is about – the behaviour of people in a competitive situation. There are some interesting strategic dilemmas with regard to the point system used by the school. In fact the elaborate strategic thinking that is effectively presented in this show is its best feature.

Classroom of the Elite is an extremely juvenile show even by anime standards; the target audience is clearly teenage boys. A lot of screentime gets occupied by dreadful childish comedy that is usually crudely sexual in nature – it's barely a step above toddler-tier toilet humour. This anime is quite corny and often hard to take seriously. As you might expect, there is some crude sexualization in this, mainly in the form of tits and ass prominently featured. Most of the female characters have huge bolt-on gattling-gun tits that are borderline comical. Also, I know this is an unreasonable complaint given the title and premise of the show, but I found the focus on exams and academics to be tiresome, mainly because I've seen it done so many times in anime. I find it difficult to care about trivial schoolyard drama.

Everything about this anime feels dated to me – the OST, the art style and character designs, even the plotline feels like a 2000s anime. The second season is overall more modern and well produced than the first season, although neither has impressive production value. Similarly, Classroom of the Elite has some of the ugliest school uniforms I have ever seen in anime, and that's a high bar to clear. The colour choices are just absolutely hideous, good heavens. Yikes honey, like OMG. I thought they were parking-valet elves at the Ritz during the holidays. At least the voice acting is overall decent, albeit sometimes cheePost too long.

I watched ID-0. Here are my thoughts:

ID-0 is about a naive astrogeologist girl and a group of space bandits, some of whom are minds trapped inside robot bodies, who engage in illegal space mining. Things go wrong during one of their illicit excavations and the plot spirals from there. All the characters have unique personalities and I enjoyed the chemistry of this motley crew working together.

This show is actual genuine science fiction and frequently invokes intriguing sci-fi concepts such as digital consciousness, robotics and cloning. The story is interesting and engaging; it incorporates mystery elements well and does a good job of 'peeling back the onion' as the plot progresses. As a whole, ID-0 is quite creative and unique; it feels like a hobby project moreso than a commercial anime.

ID-0 also seems to have a budget as low as a hobby project. All of the character animation is CGI, but it doesn't look completely awful and I didn't find the faces to be uncanny or unsettling in ways I've experienced with CGI animation in the past. A lot of the celestial landscapes are cool and the show looks best when it is depicting spaceships, planets and things of that nature. Although they are infrequent, the action scenes in this, especially the space battles, are actually quite entertaining; the CGI looks nice and dynamic. There are also lots of awesome spaceships, and the celestial environment is a nice backdrop. I couldn't help but laugh at the space motorbikes with the decorative-flames paintjobs – they fit the mood of the anime well. In some ways, ID-0 is metal as fuck but also doesn't take itself too seriously; it's a really fun ride overall.

The soundtrack is somewhat unconventional but fits the atmosphere of the show. The OP/ED songs are endearingly cheesy. I liked the voice acting for Grayman and Rick.

My overall rating: 7/10
ID-0 is an endearing passion project with a unique intriguing story, fun likeable cast, and lots of cool creative sci-fi stuff mainly relating to space, robotics, consciousness, physics and the like. If you can overlook its janky visuals, ID-0 is a great sci-fi show.

If you care to give the author his exposure dollars, flip through the raw chapter here:

Eyecatch text:
Strong and cute idols, descend♥
Scorching idol girls

Private teitoku academy (帝鵠 - imperial swan)
A prestigious school with a history stretching over 116 years.

The words of a certain student marked the advent of its renaissance.

Chapter 2 is up:

Really wondering how many of these rematches are actually going to happen.

I'm not sure how you want to handle the split chapters thing going forward. If you TL the first part early we could either release it before part two is out or hold onto it to make the full chapter release faster. If you'd rather TL it all at once, though, I don't have a problem with that.


Good job!
Cute Shinobu.

Thank you! Pretty good chapter. I already like Christine. I guess it was time for the story to pull another "fun vs WINNING" theme, since the last time this happened was back in the first Koyori vs Agari match.

If the tournament is round-robin and not instant knockout if you lose against one school, we might see some surprises.

>Really wondering how many of these rematches are actually going to happen.

I'm not sure we'll get Mozuyama vs the gang but I'm confident Kururi will get to play onscreen pretty soon.



>I'm not sure how you want to handle the split chapters thing going forward. If you TL the first part early we could either release it before part two is out or hold onto it to make the full chapter release faster.

I can't guarantee I can translate the chapters as soon as they're out, but you can tell that, for now, Asano is structuring the halves so they have a clear cliffhanger. If my timing happens to be good, you can get them out in halves if you'd like.

It seems like this thread has hit the bump limit. I might make a new thread for the next translation.


Alright, we'll just go CBC based on the timing. It's nice to match the official release pace, but not really worth rushing if we're only beating part 2 by a couple days. I do fully expect the breaks between parts to get longer once Asano runs through whatever buffer he's built up.

I'll keep an eye out. I can also provide contact info if you ever decide dumping is too much effort.

This and the new Gundam are what I look forwards to most every week. I've seen people have mixed feelings about the latter but I've been having so much fun watching it.

How easy is it to keep that seam flowing perfectly along the front of the leg? Miorine's tights are sexy as hell but I don't think they'll translate well into 3D.


I would guess extremely difficult.


If the tights are form-fitting, it’s not too hard. Depending on your definition of “perfect”. They’ll stay in about the same place.

Talk about what manga you've been reading!

I've been reading an older manga called Yume Tsukai by Ueshiba Riichi. It's about magical shrine maidens with weird powers solving paranormal mysteries and stuff. Fairly standard concept but what makes it good in my opinion is just how crazy and bizarre the stories get, as well as some really fantastic art and a nostalgic sort of comedy. It's sometimes goofy, sometimes quite emotional, and other times borders on Junji Ito-esque horror scenarios. I really like the creepy body horror stuff, and the comedy between the weirdo cast is fun. I especially like the over the top lolicon character.

Mangadex isn’t the problem.
You’re reading the work of multiple translations or scanlation groups.

It’s because the original group didn’t finish or didn’t upload. Mangadex is trying to make your life easier. Your other option is to download directly from the groups.

Been reading Asper Girl, Shiori Experience, and Area 51, rather unfortunately Area 51's translation is incomplete and doesn't seem to have any active TL effort going on, seeing as the last translated chapter seems to have been done over a year ago. Pretty unfortunate, it's got some of my favorite art in any manga I've ever read with its use of stark black and white tones and how its pages often use only the silhouette or shadows of a character to show them. The mangaka's a master of this style.
Douman's one of my favorite mangaka, all of his stuff has this wonderfully unique feeling to it and his art style is up there as one of my favorites.

I've been reading Pun Pun as of late to cope with possibly the worst time in my whole life.
I got to the High School arc where He blatantly says he wants to score. I just gotta ask does that actually happen?
Because this may be a lot for me. I was abused since earlier than 13 and I just was never able to develop healthily like most people. I never had anyone either. I got a traumatic experience trying to read "Never Let Me Go" and the kids were talking about that and… Yeah…
I won't read Pun Pun if that is gonna happen.

I've been reading Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu (the summer Hikaru died). It was described to me as a horror yaoi about your best friend being replaced by some sort of eldritch being. I am only two chapters in but it seems good so far.
