Hitler Rants Parodies closes the circle of meta with a tastefully done, touching tribute. I'm not sure if I expected that.

Social aspect & non-splintered access to canon. It's obviously something that appeals to hardcore film buffs, so it can only really work in an urban area with high enough hipster density.

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

Galactic Cyclone Bryger: So, yes, it's one of those shows that are famous for their villain, and I must admit that even though the anime as a whole is a depressingly low-rent affair, Khamen Khamen is an intensely cool villain who deserved a better series. As an Egyptian mafia princeling, he's all a...

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

Ghost Sweeper Mikami: So yeah, it's a really good episodic 1990s supernatural adventure show with not a single shitty episode stinking up the bunch. At 45 episodes, that's pretty amazing consistency. It's also an absolutely heathenous anime that dares to suggest that high school is actually pretty ...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich In an unintentional meta way, this is probably one of the edgiest films ever made, in that it's a thematically non-edgy, soft, safe, sanitized Nazisploitation film. The edge loops full circle here, and I doubt anyone would see that coming. I sure didn't. Granted, t...

Re: Eva Misconceptions wiki page?

As for what content should go on it, what immediately comes to my mind: •Is explaining the death threats. (I honestly can't recall if they were actually about TV ending, or Death & Rebirth but I thought it was the latter?) And if memory serves, it was only a handful of messages, right? Weren't ...

M3: The Dark Metal https://i.imgur.com/SjBHOr6.jpg An already-forgotten Satelight show that is one part low-rent Eva clone, one part curse-based J-horror. A fairly inert affair despite its Mari Okada pedigree. Most notable for Natsuiri being an eye-poppingly awful Gendo expy, and the final episode ...

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Ga-Rei: Hajime Segawa had lots of luck with his breakthrough opus Ga-Rei, as it actually benefited from what I assume must have been executive meddling. Its story is told in four major arcs, but the manga starts from the second arc, and throughout it the first arc is only visited in scattered flash...

Ghost Sweeper Mikami, eps. 1-19: https://i.imgur.com/Qk8vwOQ.jpg GS Mikami was a big hit back in the 1990s, spawning a whole slew of imitators within the "hot chicks busting ghosts" subgenre, and it's easy to see why: Takashi Shiina is really good at cranking out slightly comedic one-and-...

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

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: It's pretty ironic that a game series that does anime bullshit so well is so bad as an actual anime. But of course, considering the basic building blocks of the franchise, any attempt at adapting it on television would be a crazy uphill battle, esp...

Re: News of Anime in Japan

So I just finished reading the Ga-Rei manga and I'm going to post something about it at a later date, but a Wikipedia reference led me to this. That is absolute screaming madness. I mean, I guess you could techincally pull off a dinky live-action version of Ga-Rei Zero with a TV superhero budget, bu...

Eureka Seven AO: In short, I don't get why this series is supposed to be this uniquely awful thing, but that's almost certainly due to my policy of not engaging with the in-the-moment seasonal anime fandom (and also being a know garbage eater). Hipsterism perhaps, but it's just a fact of anime that...

Considering this franchise is built around a preposterous future sports setting, the OVA was probably too epic for ...
