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

Having put Shiki to one side again after the rather underwhelming episode where the doctor vivisects (necrosects?) his wife, I've just finished watching GitS:Arise (the original OVAs plus the TV finale). As yet another GitS continuity, it works fine -- Plots are really dumb... I can't even remember...

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

Lupin III Part V Things just got highly introspective. Out of nowhere, a credible examination of Lupin and Goeomon's relationship has shown up. I'm only sad they didn't develop this more deliberately. There were like, 3 filler episodes in this season, plenty of time to do it in, yet this all really...

Zoids Wild Dear lord; that color pallet, that hair, that wooden dialogue... Re-imagining Zoids as motorcycles/horses is cool, and the villains being into S&M is hilarious, but Zoids-as-Pokemon just doesn't work for me. Angolmois: Genkou Kassenki Historical anime about the Mongol invasion of Jap...

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

So, the season comes to an end, and pretty much everything has aired its last episode (late-shifters like DarliFra aside); and the one episode of (Don't Lewd the) Horse Girls I watched just makes it so that I did see more episodes of Spring titles than I could count on the fingers of one hand. Very...

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

I've never seen it, or even, AFAIK even had the opportunity to do so back in the day. Still, what I liked about Yatterman Nights is that it's a sendup to the three-idiot villain team (think Team Rocket), making them both the center of the story, and the heroes, for once. The work is also not just a...

At least it it gave me Shinn, the result of a DBZ fusion of Shinji and Asuka. I really wish they let him kill Kira, would've made the show a lot better. :devil: Shinn is the character I despise --- by GSD, Kira is just going through the motions, sort of like Amuro in Zeta, but with a bigger role, a...

Could you imagine if Goku and Vegeta got new VAs for KAI or Super? Gundam SEED is extremely popular in Japan, it's the most (or very close) popular Gundam over there, and they didn't recast the whole Japanese cast There's a different culture surrounding voice acting over there & its contracting...

^^^ I think the reason One Punch Man and Mob Psycho are well regarded is mostly due to the excellent animation. Other than that, all you have is a decent story(a bit above average in Mob Psychos case) and a couple good comedy moments. . One Punch has got something pretty good happening under the ho...

I still like Gundam Wing. But from everything I've read about the franchise it's . . . decayed in recent years. Like people seem to hate it nowadays. Did it really not age that well? Too much beam spam, politics of the setting are bone-headed stupid, character motivations left me rooting for someon...

Just noticed that Mob Psycho 100 is done. I wonder what One will do next? For Mob , the relationship between Mob and Reigen was tops for me; trying to offer someone else what they need to grow up, when you know you're not altogether yourself. Straddles two periods of developing maturity quite nicely...

Gundam Build Divers I thought this show was turning the Gundam Build Fighters formula into an advertisement for a game they could realistically make. Like a Gundam MMOFPS/TPS I was... sorta right? As in it's kind of an advertisement for the new Gundam Breaker release. Which isn't a MMO at all, but ...

I'm talking more about how well animated and choreographed they are.

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens : A town of Hitmen. Said hitmen have colorful personalities and get in silly(and sometimes not so silly) adventures.

Darling in the Franxx I love how this show visually tries to be Evangelion . This week, they went a step above, and made a homage to Misato walking down the NERV corridor in EoE. I don't like the mecha designs though; they're Star Driver faire with anime faces (when activated). https://thumb.ibb.co...
