Re: News of Anime in Japan Bl

This is really crazy. I'm not a Kenshin fan but it's a big popular shonen battle series. I know quite a few people who grew up adoring it and still do. I mean if you think about it over 90% of anime fans get introduced to the stuff through some shonen battle series. Shows like Dragon Ball in the 90...

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality) Bl

The 2015 decision didn't establish net neutrality - it was the default state of the Internet (and the FCC had fined a company that broke it as early as 2004, one year after the term was coined); in 2015 the FCC made clear that ISPs in the USA were to be regarded as common carriers. Put simply, the ...

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

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans I was a latecomer to the whole Gundam craze (as I so often seem to be with anime series--I was also late to the party with Pokemon and Evangelion), so the first series I watched was Advanced Generation--which isn't as terrible as everyone says. If I may ask,...

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II Bl

SEED does have way too many Gundams. I was thinking the same of Zeta; the antagonists kept changing their suits, I couldn't keep a visceral "power level" scale in my mind for whether they were close to a Gundam or not. With Seed Destiny I didn't quite have that problem, as it was establis...

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

How's this adaption been? I'd like to check out the manga, I never read the manga; watching the show on it's own. Very dark, very brutal, but I get that it's likely the point. The tone is similar to Parasyte , though we haven't gotten to a story yet where it's afflicting the main character's famili...

Not without being on site you couldn't. None of them are remotely controlled. About the most you could do is make them self destruct in their silos.

Re: Love in evangelion

Asuka is clearly interested in Shinji romantically but her fear of rejection is too debilitating for her to pursue it properly. Even regular teenagers fear rejection but Asuka is a special case. Her mother rejected her in favor of a doll. She's extremely averse to rejection because of this, so ever...

Fourth and finally, she lacks the ability to properly process her own emotions. The reasoning for this is the combination of points one through three above to the power of 10 (or so). She's looking for an impossible combination of things simultaneously, namely someone mature (like Kaji) but in her ...

Crunchy UK goes straight from Onee-chan ga kita to OneRoom , which rules that one out. Myriad Colours and Mob they do have. Professor... all of the sadness in the first 10 minutes aside...

Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul Finale. Eh... It's alright. Not a lot of it felt earned though. The resolution of the God/Demon-human conflict, Favaro's (lack of) reaction to Kaiser, the King turning out to be simply misunderstood . Still love the characters, but the plot has once again made itself an...

To give some context, I'm looking for interesting shows with really good animation, a distinct visual style or very well done storyboards; obviously, I'd like the writing to be good, but I really want the visual storytelling to be good as well. Also, anything innovative or groundbreaking in the his...

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 ...
