Re: Godzilla & Kaiju General!

Funnily enough, I watched this again yesterday, having received the DVD as a Christmas present. Now, admittedly this is the only a) Godzilla and b) Anno live action movie I've seen, but I felt it worked and held up for the re-watch. "Everyone here is giving their all!" (shows everyone slee...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

It's true that you'll find Eva influence everywhere, but here it's very direct. Indeed. I just watched the first episode and was struck by how much the MC was literally doing the "mustn't run away" thing; 00-ni doing Mari's thing of falling on the guy and liking what she senses (taste, ra...

Define "happy" in the context. It may also be necessary to define "ending" as well, as there are any number of short pieces of WAFFy fluff set somewhere mid-series, before it all comes tumbling down.

Re: The Subject of Hair

Hair -- there are three ways in which a tough protective layer can form, depending whether it twists inwards, outwards or just lies flat. You get a choice of scales, feathers or hair (not in that order) as a result. Distaste for it, and consequent cultural customs of thorough depilation, has formed ...

In Rei's case, I would assume that her preferences would be like Nadia's, i.e. based off Anno's.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Quite. Ray should name some names here.

The original complaint seemed to be calling out phenomena like Tougou's megalopolis, where there's oppai monster who stands out from the rest of the cast. There may not even be that token boob demon if the characters are all high-school students.

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

I can't off-hand locate the "K-On! through the decades" picture which would be the appropriate riposte, so I'll just point at this epitome of '90s style which is used in that picture. Or we can just point at something slightly more objective.

The embargo on this wasn't supposed to lift until the 9th, but clearly somebody wanted the notoriety. There were some all-nighters being pulled this week, by people I know, as a consequence. The nature of the attack is one of these obvious-in-hindsight things; and in one of the three variants, hits ...
