Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

The Koihime Musou series continue to be trashy fun in a nostalgic vein -- I'm most of the way through Shin now. As a true nostalgia binge, I dug out the first Dirty Pair Flash OVA, and realised that I have been spoiled by modern anime -- low budget now is likely to look like Kemono Friends , rather ...

Re: Best service to watch anime around the world

Well, it's two years old. I guess something would have changed in that time in that branch. Crunchy has been a legit service with nigh world-wide reach (as opposed to making money off streaming unlicensed fan-subs) for almost a decade now -- I can't remember if I watched anything from them before S...

Is that the Ghibli movie Mononoke Hime, or do you mean that at a just a decade after airing the Old Dope Pedlar now counts as old stuff?

Presumably to denote an on-going state. That's the usual grammatical function of the present tense.

Re: Was Ikuhara supposed to direct the show at one point?

Anno did indeed want his friend Ikuni to work on the series. It's long been known that Ayanami Rei was named for Hino Rei as an enticement. As it is, Ikuhara's one known suggestion, that the series end with Rei being pregnant (as a jab at the waifu fags), didn't happen, and we just got an Ikuhara ex...

Re: Dealing with being thirty

how to deal with the existential crisis that comes with it? Buy a Harley-Davidson. Oh, wait, that's for 50, not 30. I don't recall anything particular for 30; if anything, it would have been that I had finally "levelled up" as an adult. That was still at the time of high tensions between ...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Up to episode 12 of Mahoutsukai no Yome , which continues to be good enough that I've not dropped it, but still falls somehow short of its potential. It hasn't really engaged on an emotional level, which, given that I can get blurry eyed over pieces of equipment requesting specific upgrades, is some...

The last costume change was going to be into a bikini, that's all.

That video was posted by a one-time forum regular.

Do I have to draw a diagram here? It seems like it, with the number of people who have missed the point.

Or should I just quote the Stranglers here and say "Use your 20th century imagination, if you've got any"?

Re: Grave markers at the end of EoE?

In the end, they're just telephone poles or whatever. When I saw that scene for the first time, I saw them as charred timbers from house construction that had been scattered like straws by all the catastrophic events we'd seen unfold. Shinji pinning up Misato's cross just looked like making use of ...
