No topics offend me on principle but it´s pretty easy to derail by trying to be relevant or edgy. GTO for example managed to age badly in parts, even in the first and still good half by touching on stuff that a mass market kids book just can´t get into. P ...

I had huge problems with Game of Thrones S05 and the much more coherent S06 didn´t change my mind too much. A lot of it can be blamed on the middling quality of books 4 and 5, yet the 2 seasons really rushed though them while trowing out really good ...

I chose 50 volumes as a necessarily cut-off point with manga and HxH 2011 adapted 32 volumes in 148 episodes. The initial pacing was a bit fast, yet the later eps. were too slow. A properly paced anime adaptation can usually do justice to about 8 volumes in 26 eps ...

Mature is for R-rated manga, with gore, "reasonable" sex stuff, a no nonsense take on drugs, etc. Adult is for entries with a graphic focus on sex first and foremost, so both (all ages) Seinen or Shounen and Hentai can get it. Hentei is further mostly tre ...
