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

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba This show is hitting its stride right now; the movement and impact of the fights are just fantastic to watch. DanMachi sometimes surprised me with moments of true visceral gravitas; this series manages the same feat almost every episode and its story doesn't suck. Min...

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

Cop Craft Buddy-cop set up via a genre mishmash of fantasy and hardboiled police drama."Bright the Anime" might not be too far off in describing it. But I only wish an orc had been the partner here. Mind, I'm only one episode in. It looks fine, the character intro for the detective works....

Re: L barrier va Core

The "L-Barrier" appears to be some sort of effect generated by the coreified land. It makes the environment toxic to ordinary lifeforms Just like Tiberium. :| It causes electromagnetic interference, you can harness it as a power source, it spontaneously creates/mutates life, it's the stoc...

Re: Q B/

Hmmm... I think I still need a thread where we discussed this, I'm looking for why death was necessary, or if were assuming Kawrou was simply in error.

Re: Evangelion 3.33 FAQ B/

Just watched Rebuild 3.33. Please point me to the nearest thread explaining why Kawrou put on the collar. ...and why he said Shinji opened up the Chamber of Guf, when the former clearly closed it with the Cassius Lance in 2.22. I'm thinking, alternate realities? Either that, or more time passed ...

Re: Why I Sympathize With Gendo

The problem though is that Gendo used his "I'm not Good with people" mentality as an excuse to treat everyone in an extractive or transactional manner. The only exception seems to be Yui. But even when she was around, he was still like that with other people. We see that in the way he brou...

All the power in Japan; Tokyo-3, we have a problem. B/

Feel free to correct me, but besides the logistic problem as to how you build the infrastructure to handle ~900 Billion kWh in... a day... Japan has one other problem with this plan. It is almost literally split down the middle between the Uber Master race who use 60 Hz, and those misbegotten troglo...

Re: What do you think of the Netflix version of Evangelion?

Tiffany Grant (ADV Asuka VA) has alluded that this new version of the script was highly controlled by corporate, and that the director (a Berserk VA and voice of Misato in this dub) was given virtually no creative control. Not even over who they cast. Deliveries are wooden, in part, because they wer...

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

Dropped Rise of the Shield Hero, as it was just going full dumb-wish fulfillment, whereas before a few characters I thought had some agency at least.

But they've been flanderized to the point of having no other qualities or conversations left. BP

Price of Smiles Finale Meh. Feels pretty rushed, the conclusion is telegraphed well in advanced, I don't really buy that the war would end with mechs shutting down when its likely their guns and artillery didn't run on techno-magic to start with. I think it's implied that the Empire was invading to...

Price of Smiles Ahh... I'm sensing that this is a game of "break the cutie", combined with the sitzkrieg of, "when does the REAL enemy show up; the one that both of these trusting, exploited souls get to throw off together?" Question: How likely is it that Joshua shows up later ...

Could it be, that season 2 is even better than season one? I'm just blown away by it.

I could almost swear these stories are original, and weren't in the manga, but I'm too lazy to check. :tongue:
