April 2 - April 8: Episodes 5 - 8

April 9 - April 15: Episodes 9 - 12

 

I'm assuming we're going to keep the same nominations but if not @me in the META thread. I'll make a new thread for nominations after the first week assuming it is still going strong.

I hope that we start some time during the day/afternoon, because I'm going out tomorrow night (Mainly to watch Power Rangers)

So we just watch it on our own then discuss or we did the same thing as last time where DEW made some group on that website and we watched at the same time? The latter is hard since everyone's schedule is different.

I've just watched episode one so far and it was certainly interesting. I'll get through 2-4 by Friday and post my thoughts.

I'm currently trying to finish all of my series from the winter season...if anything has me speechless it's Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu as it's not just the the best anime of the season but the best I've watched in a long time.

:lolxg:  give it an other try, this show uses the rough way for traditional japanese folklore, it doesn't explain anything, you've to discover and figure out things as you watch it

 

"the medicine seller what is that guy?"

what do you mean for what he is? if he's human or not? or just what kind of work he's doing?


 

oh, the first episode covers only the introduction to the first story, and also a general introduction of what the medicine seller does, and what he needs to exorcize the mononoke

I watched the first four ep and i have to say at first it was a bit too "odd" but now i am starting to want to watch more and more!

 

I'll have more to say after the next four, but so far it's looking good.

which parts of it were too odd at first?  (i know i had the same impression at first, but what did you notice personally?)

what did you start to like about it instead?

 

 

(i know i'm asking too much, but this was supposed to be a discussion.......)

As DEW said. It's a bit too against the norm.

 

It's a bit like the Monogatari series but with a very "unique" art direction and less relatable characters. Now that i finished the 4th ep, the style is less noticeable/jarring.

so, how many have finished the first 2 episodes?
 
what did you think about the first story? did anything stand out to you?
what you didn't understand? (guess this should be the first question to be asked)
 
 
when i watched this the first time i was weirded out by the way to talk of the characters, expecially the medicine seller, and also the facial expressions of all the others characters looked weird, but by the end of episode 1 i got use to that
i liked all the references to the typical spirit exorcism, like the use of paper tags, and what looked the most interesting was the requirement of having to find out the 3 states of the mononoke to kill it
 
the story of the woman was also interesting, having the first story being centered around abortion was a really strange choice, never saw an other show start like that before
there was no introduction (well the first episode was sort of an introduction)  the story just went directly to the point
 
what i still don't get is why at the end the woman decided to side with the mononoke, she should have known it wasn't really her child
the ending was surprisingly positive, with the woman keeping her baby after the mononoke was killed, given everything which happened before
 
it's advised to keep watching past the ending credits, there are often some little shorts which complete the stories
 
 

Only got through the first three episodes but it's definitely too artsy for me to want to marathon.

that's also why this is split into only 4 episodes for each week.. the whole point is to don't marathon this
(really hope some of you guys aren't waiting the last week to marathon this, cause that would make no sense in this setting)
 
or are you saying, this show has so much content to talk about, that 2 episodes each week would be better?
 

@Tom Ace maybe i was used to shows like the monogatari serie, so i got used to this pretty fast
episode 3 and 4 had been a bit hard to watch since the story seemed to move a bit slower
