Do I have to watch ALL of SDF macross to understand "Do You Remember Love"?

Because it's just becoming a bit of a slog to get through.

You don't have to watch anything to understand DYRL.

That said, SFD Macross is a great show, so you should try giving it a couple more episodes.

How would anyone recommend it? Nobody watched it yet.

Still, it's from director of When Marnie was There, and that movie was quite good. So yeah, there's a good chance it's a good movie. Have you watched the director's previous movies?

^Since it came out in Japan a bit ago I thought one or two users may have seen it. But yea, I've seen When Marnie was There(in theatres no less). It was pretty dope. Didn't realize it was by the same dude, I thought it was some other Ghibli guy for some reason. Haven't watched Arrietty yet.

I'll probably end up seeing the witch movie.

Just finished watching Space Dandy after a few weeks, and I'd like to watch another 26 episode series. But I can't decide between two shows I'm really interested in checking out. The shows in question are:

-Berserk 1997 (I've heard that the limited animation used was a deliberate stylistic choice, and I want to know how that worked out)
-Little Witch Academia (I checked out the short films since I'd heard very good things about them, and loved them. I've heard similar things about the show, so I'd like to know)

If y'all could help me figure out which show to watch, I'd really appreciate it!

Is anyone here watching Darling in The FranXX? I've heard it's getting good reviews but I haven't been able to watch it myself yet.

I, Ray.
Darling in the FranXX episode 1  SPOILER: Show
There are many nods to other Gainax shows in it.

Oni gives me strong Haruko vibes (FLCL);
The lake scene is very Eva #24 (You and I are the same, Hiro-kun. Loses head)

When the students are assembled before the white robe people, there are strong Kill La Kill vibes.

"Mustn't run away, Hiro-kun."

Papa and the others remind me of Gargoyle from Nadia, which is a Gainax show.

The artstyle is unmistakably Trigger, but the animation (except in the last few minutes) is quite inferior to their other shows I've seen.

The round thing (plant?) falling in the rocks his highly reminiscent of the breaking through the ceiling in the first ep of TTGL. There are also hexes with warnings, which is an Eva reference. Cross-blinking, which is a KLK reference.

Still, it's a completely different animal from their previous shows. It's ok... nothing special. I may continue. Idk. 7/10 so far.

Some relevant screenshots (including a Gendo Pose image I intend to add to the wiki):
Of course, these screens are also spoilers  SPOILER: Show
Hexes: Image
More hexes, and the red caution hexes we know and love from TTGL; plus some cross-blinking: Image

Its a good show so far, only 2 episodes as of right now. But with all the blatant sexual references it might not be for you Ray..But hey it's the closest thing we got to to Eva right now. :)

Imprimatur13 sums it up pretty well in his review...(above post)
Comfort was the answer to all life's problems. It didn't solve them, but it made them more distant for a bit as they quietly worsened.

In terms of how I am feeling about watching Zeta Gundam, so far I have seen the first seven episodes in Japanese subbed form but I feel like I am just wasting time with that method because none of the voices stick out in my head, it's basically my same situation with Cowboy Bebop dubbed but backwards. Now I feel like going back to square one with Zeta and listen to it in it's English version, is that advisable? :???:

I strongly recommend "Ping Pong". Even more so, if you don't like sport animes.

I was very excited for violet evergarden, but now that it's done people keep complaining it was bad. Was it really not good?

It depends what you want out of a series.

VEG generated a lot of visually lush .webm excerpts on /a/, though with some complaints about the excessive use of filters in the early episodes. By all accounts, the source LN seems to have been bad fanfic tier writing, the anime improvising around around it with original material more than just adapting, picking out short sentimental stand-alone episodes, and down-playing some of the more "out there" parts of Violet's wartime back-story.

a fair enough WEG  SPOILER: Show

I didn't manage to watch more than 7 Minutes of Violet Evergarden.
The MC is a bland Ayanami-clone, the tone is sappier than cheaply produced afternoon-telenovelas and the visual execution is just overkill. Definitely not for me.
I so hope, one of these days Kyo-ani decides to adapt something with good source material.

May I ask if this is a case of fans over-hyping themselves and letting their imaginations of "what it could be" lead to disappointment?
