RAGE OF BAHAMUT GENESIS

Catching up on my backlog (finally)

This is everything I've ever wanted in a Medieval Fantasy series. Action, Sorcery, Insanity, Tightly Written characters, an interesting and Batshit crazy world, and for once there's barely any nudity played for sex appeal. There are naked people, but the nudity is always relevant to the story and the situation and never comes off as exploitaitive. And for once a Loli character that isn't lewded once!

I will say this about Amero though. The character design looks really androgynous. So hearing that manly devil may care voice coming out of what I first assumed when I saw promos for the series was a woman? Well it was jarring to say the least.

8 out of 10. Next up Virgin Soul
I’ll escape now from this world, from the world of Jean Valjean, Jean Valjean is nothing now! Another story must begin!

So I finished Devilman, watch it. I have read the manga and this is a great adaptation that exceeds it in every way except for one thing

SPOILER: Show
Jinmen had a very interesting new twist that I feel was executed poorly overall.


However, all the new content made me actually love the manga and series more. You can look at the 3x3 thread here and see I put Devilman on my 3x3 but this was even greater! Normally I would put a huge warning on this about the type of person that can stomach and get through this but we've all watched End of Eva and love it here right? I don't really write reviews or go into detail about anime I adore because I just want people to go see it unspoiled completely.

Hmm, I meant it more in the context of "We can be understanding if a director uses sex and violence as a way of telling their story."

Watched Fate Stay Night Heavens Feel Movie 1 in theaters today (yes, Aniplex hates Canada and brought it here months after the US). This film confirmed two things for me:

(1) ufotable is the best animation studio in the industry, their animation is miles beyond all other competitors;

(2) ufotable have exhausted themselves with Fate. The entire movie can be summarized as random half-ass'ed scenes depicting "narrative" that are used to stitch together a series of godly animated fights that happen every 20minutes. It's like ufotable stopped trying to write well. The awful pacing and mediocre script really brought the film down to a 6/10 for me. At least some effort on their part towards a well presented plot would have made this an easy 8 or 9 because the animation/battles/music were top tier.

Except for Fate/Zero, which was salvaged by the sheer immense writing chops of the the amazing Gen Urobuchi, everything Fate is bad written. Unfortunately, for me, insufferably so.
It's like a big fan of Shonen Anime thought, "I'm gonna make something for adults!", somehow thinking that means,
imbuing it with ridiculous "philosophic" "dialogue", completely dismissing, that no one talks that way, which makes it impossible to relate to the cast (a poor man's lord of the rings),
while still feeling the need to construct everything around arcane power systems and lore preached in hours of exposition,
thus turning a trashy premise promising FUN like Vampire Hunter D into a ridiculously self-serious display of overly complicated stuff to sit through just to seem "intelligent".
