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

Aura: Koga Maryuin's Last War: Or as Carl Macek would have re-titled it, I Was a Teenage Sepiroth . A pretty good little drama, but absolutely requires a working understanding of the chunibyo phenomenon. ****** Thriller Restaurant, episodes 1-6: How does one have a wham episode in a spooky children...

"Surreal" is definitely an apt word here. The forum has lost one of its statesman-level posters. Rest in peace, man.

Re: Superhero Films & TV

Shankar's The Robot sequel delayed to January 2018. The special effects are giving the Kollywood production a hard time, which is not really surprising considering this is supposed to be a bigger and crazier sequel to a film that was already billed as "the biggest spectacle ever" (and tha...

Re: Illegal torrent trackers tumbling down (tumbling down)

Heh - I've got DVDs of 21 titles from that list (three of which I know have been relicensed but I bought before that). I've got 55 originals and 9 license rescued titles from that list. And the number of rescues is only that low because I haven't yet sunk my teeth into Discotek's crazy hipster cata...

Re: Illegal torrent trackers tumbling down (tumbling down)

Legality aside sites like these provided pretty much the only means of people outside of Japan being able to watch these properties. This. There are impossibly huge swathes of anime history that one simply cannot access legally, especially if you're a western consumer. Consider, for example, this l...

Re: News of Anime in Japan

Masaaki Yuasa's Mind Game, one of the all-time mindfuckiest anime films, gets a Kickstarted region-free western BD release. Considering the initial funding goal was met within two hours or so, hopefully this encourages more Studio4°C releases in the same vein.

Re: Hollywood's "Ghost in the Shell"

This is slightly tangential but probably relevant info to some people in this thread: Anchor Bay's recent BD release of GitS: SAC is a broken shit show worthy of recall. Just look at the reviews . All things considered, it might be the worst western anime release ever. Do not waste your money and bu...

Re: [SPLIT] Crunchyroll

That's fair enough, I suppose. I guess my view is somewhat clouded by bitterness of living in the UK and thus getting bugger all in terms of decent anime releases, at least compared to the US. Understandable, but luckily the UK market seems to be catching up a little with All the Anime being very m...

Squigs, I'm no stranger to the Torrent since I live outside of the major streaming regions and I like my obscure and unlicensed shit, but your view lacks nuance. I'm not going to defend releases compromised by actual censorship, and I'm thankful that you informed me about the Paranoia Agent situatio...

That sounds partially like Gall Force and partially like The Humanoid, but neither is an exact match.

BTW, did you watch the censored (TV) version or the uncensored (LD) one? (Only the TV version has an English dub.) The LD version, since it comes with the extra episode. ****** SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors , episodes 1-4: http://i.imgur.com/zLsgdFe.jpg Unlike the SD Gundam parody shor...

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

It's funny though, it was the first Gundam so many of my generation of annimay fans ever knew, but other than that it was a pretty forgettable Gundam series(correct me if I'm wrong), wasn't it? AFAIK, Wing is all about that sweet nostalgia. Its characters are largely bishie ciphers, its plot is non...

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

Ehrgeiz: Chances are you've never heard anyone talk about Ehrgeiz, and that's because it's a bad anime in the worst possible way, i.e. it's boring and nondescript. In this respect it resembles the Cybuster anime , but whereas Cybuster was a nightmarish adaptation of a well-liked pre-existing proper...

Re: Buildings in Live Action sequence in The End of Evangelion

My bet is they're miniatures. Double skybridges are such a rare feature, and here we have two of those in one shot.

But perhaps make an account here and ask the skyscraper geeks.

Re: FML general thread [8]

Windows 10 auto-updated itself, shitting the bed and rolling back all of my visual setting adjustments like folder styles in the process. Simultaneously, Firefox auto-updated itself as well, also shitting the bed gloriously.
