Let me introduce you to the notion of the Sunk Cost fallacy (or, the reason why I have such a huge "dropped" list, including getting 3/4 or more of the way through other shows before "Nope"ing out).

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

The protracted finale nobody asked for, Episode 21, The purple ones are VIRMin, even if they act like MPEvas. And even though I skipped about half the show, I at least recall mention of FranXX running out of magma energy in one of the early fights. And thus the farce of an Anime, that perfectly enc...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

I feel genuine disgust toward the idea of Kokoro apparently being pregnant It shouldn't have come as any sort of surprise. The way the series has been set up, it wouldn't have made sense for her not to be. Also, poor Zero Two just can't catch a break, can she? I wonder what is it this time. She did...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

The latter half of the series has so far been done by CloverWorks; but still under Nishigori's direction. We may see Imaishi returning to the staff for the coming episodes for more robot action.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

How is the Japanese fandom reacting to this? Worse than Ichigo's confession? The nicovideo ratings were the lowest for the series to date. So far as I can tell, they're following chaz' lead on this one, rather than getting angry -- which may mean no episode 15-like rebound, no matter what happens n...

Net Neutrality? The EU says "Hold my beer..."

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

As well as having effectively picked up Darlifra from episode 18, and continuing with Toji no Miko as it heads to the final confrontations, I stuck with Last Period for the three episodes needed to get to the Casey and Friends cameo, but having accomplished that I see no reason to continue with it. ...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

There's no reason for anyone on the opposing side to know any of the information. Can't you spot recruitment pitches when you hear them? Franxx just wants Yui klaxxohime to love him, so he explains all the bridal preparations he has made, before she shoots him down. Meanwhile, as all Hiro wants to ...

Yeah, we could have had the boring "Hiro goes to do his job, Papa betrays them, klaxxohime makes her move on Hiro, Zero Two has to cry to free him, then they turn around and destroy Papa and all is saved", but instead the ex-Gainax staffers finally started doing what it is they know how to...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Am I seriously not hallucinating this shit?! I think the hallucinations are at their end after raiding the Gainax vault with the secret stash (of discarded notes from previous projects). Finally, after meandering in place for a dozen episodes (maybe more), it looks like the series might actually tr...
