Re: Thoughts on Asuka

Asuka is really a variation of the "Poor little rich girl" character. From almost her earliest memories, she is this elite pilot at NERV, and also gets hot-housed through university when most children her age would just be starting "big school". Materially, she has been indulged ...

Re: FML general thread [8]

This has hit the newswires already, so I'm not letting any secrets out when I say that there is a major restructuring going on at my place of work. This time I'm actually one of the many people whose position is "at risk", which means that there are going to be a couple of months while all...

Re: Let's Watch NGE Together! Unofficial Commentary Thread

The Rebuild version shows how the technology and budget had improved over the intervening decade. Missing out on an upgraded version cut 259 in the remake still remains a disappointment, though.

Re: Toji's Attire

Forehead harnesses are something that is still used in various parts of the world -- for example in some of the pictures attached to this blog , in contemporary Nepal.

Re: News of Anime in Japan

Translated from the original Japanese https://i.imgur.com/s2XBXcm.png Episode 3 was where it suddenly leapt from being down in the noise so far as sales and pre-orders went and launched onto a trajectory that had it cruising past even the big name series that season -- the tweet counts alone give an...

ISTR that Toblerone had acquired memetic status previously in relation to Japanese media; possibly having been used as a censor in some scanlation, certainly in some scurrilous use.

Crunchy UK goes straight from Onee-chan ga kita to OneRoom, which rules that one out. Myriad Colours and Mob they do have.

Because the original series was perfectly delightful (if you haven't watched it, you should), and people were hoping that the same team, carrying on in short order from where they left off, could do it again.

The first titles that come to mind that fit those criteria would be Akagi and Kemono Friends.

sadly, no overpowered magical-girl anime to my recollection That would have been Symphogear AXZ this season, if it had been where I usually look for these things (OK, that one you can argue is actually mecha musume ). And next season, there's YuYuYu S2 , which again you could argue is technically &...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

I just watched the dubbed. And I only saw the series at least twice now. And EOE just one time. The voice acting in the US dub is far less nuanced than the original, if only because of not having the same director. Even if you don't hear anything other than a clattering of mouth noises in Japanese,...

That's a positive "can" -- the result of having saved religiously since I was little, having maintained a modest lifestyle since being a student, and, most importantly, not having moved house for over 30 years, and thus having long paid off the mortgage. It was only comparatively recently ...
