I find it insulting that the best FromSoftware series wasn't mentioned.

Re: Hayao Miyazaki updates enemies list Bl

Mr. Miyazaki is someone I identify as a classicist (don't know if that's the correct term); his entire method revolves around studying human actions closely, then meticulously trying to capture them in his animation. He then adds flourishes on these movements and actions to give the character their ...

Yup, Linus from Linus Tech Tips suffered the same sort of attack. This is why I don't link my accounts with my phone number anymore.

Re: I Think I Hate Isekai (Fantasy World) Anime B/

Anime is a medium, not a genre. I know, but you responded under my post, which was referring to the whole of the industry. Isekai is the genre I was talking about. And if isekai anime keep getting shat out, people are going to get bored of them and stop watching. Which is the cycle of all fads. Ove...

Re: I Think I Hate Isekai (Fantasy World) Anime B/

Sounds like a genre that's on the road to suicide to me. How so? The number of anime produced per year has only doubled since the 90's. TV here in the west has become a bit like this thanks to the rise of cable and streaming service-backed series> there's a lot more turn over (at lower cost, chasin...

I totally agree. Same could be applied to SF, or pretty much any genre as well.

I do mean anime as a whole; genre doesn't typically impact the production cost, other than to specify if there's action or not, so the principle holds for virtually the whole industry.

1) There are TOO FRIGGIN MANY. There's genre saturation. And then there's the problem with Isekai anime. The genre has always been with us. But over the past five years we've gotten a whole bunch of this genre of anime, and it's friggin insane. Re:Zero, Grimgar , Log Horizon, Konosuba, Overlord, Ga...

Yes, that's what Gundam S**d Needed in order to not be a **** show... a new dub cast.

And why the hell does it need Blu-ray? The sub-par animation looks like absolute shiest in HD already.

The Top 100 Anime of All Time (According To Japan)

To celebrate "100 years of anime", NHK released a poll of the top 100 anime as rated by Japanese viewers . Personally, I'm most surprised by #16, an anime that I had barely heard of apparently beating out K-On! at its own game, and #12, Joker Game, which didn't leave much of an impression ...

Gundaminfo has released the first episode of Gundam Build Fighters: Battlogue.

What plays out is like an anime version of a Gundam vs cutscene.

Anyone else think this season's offerings are the weakest we've had in a while, or is it just me? Rage of Bahamut S2 hasn't gotten bad yet , if for nothing else, I'm still curious to understand the King's motivations. He casually dispenses with them when talking to the cute dragon girl, but by the ...

How are you liking this one four weeks in, Alaska Slim? I wasn't too wild about that first episode either, but I'm kind of liking it so far. They're not making an anime that's going to change the world or anything, but the show comes across like some nice fun pop song; don't have to think about it ...

Re: [LAEM] Would an american Evangelion live-action movie have ever worked if it had been done right?

But Tokyo-3 isn't far enough removed from reality to have that situation play out convincingly.
