Without further ado, here’s Zaitcev on Gravion:
Gravion surprised me with its poor form. I’m just not used to watching anything this retarded.
This comes from the guy who still buys Naruto -uncut, mind you. You know, to keep it real. Blood and all- for the
retail discounted price of… $29.99. Wait. Wait. I’m not taking a blow at Naruto. I think it’s still awesome. Believe it. What I dont believe is that Gravion is a bad show. Why? Look at what he has to say elsewhere:
Way do destroy the credibility. Isn’t ef an eroge adaptation? How about To Heart? Apparently, “eroge adaptation” is the new “mecha”: something to be hated regardless.
Here you have ef and To Heart in the same sentence. Wont you then assume that he thinks ef and To Heart are similar in enjoyment for him? Yet if we go on to look at his ANN list for ef and To Heart:
ef: Inspirational, moving, touching. Fell short of masterpiece due to useless gimmick imagery and disconnected main stories. Warning: has sex (but a happy one).
To Heart: Weak and ponderous.
A man of few, but strong words. Looks to me like two entirely different comments. “Way to destroy the credibility”. How can I believe the snide comments against Gravion after this? I cannot.
… plus he watched Crescent Love for more than one episode. I just cant take that seriously.
edit: Woops. I forgot to edit in the link to the livejournal about Naruto. Check that place out, it’s got actual reviews.
