Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2015 to now

Is Macross Delta worth a watch? Totally failed to notice its existence until now. The girls cute? Mechs look all right? Related to Frontier at all? I didn't really like Frontier that much so how does it stack up so far? I just watched Chirin no Suzu , a kickin' rad kid's movie from the team that bro...

Is Penguinbear or whatever it wound up being called worth a watch? Managed to totally miss everything about it

Heroic Legend of Arslan : Kept my expectations low for this one and I have to say the muddy CG battle to start out pretty much justified my worries. Especially when you compare this to the surreal, impressionistic battle sequence that kicks off the OVA. But I'll stick with it for now, it's ...

To be fair, this makes it a pretty perfect adaptation of FSN.

I also really didn't understand the rationale behind Hobo!Simon, since Simon doesn't really have anything to gain by becoming a wandering traveler...I felt it was just added to give the ending that extra oomph and give some meaning to him giving Gurren Lagann to the kids. What else was he g...

Knights of Sidonia 01 : Can it be? A 3DCG animuh that occasionally looks something other than buttfuck awful? We have here an adaptation of a Tsutomu Nihei manga that I started a while back and dropped because I forgot how much I hate Nihei as a character designer - almost as much as I love him as ...

Need to put the feelers out into Fernow’s enormous back-catalogue and find similar releases ( Lily of the Valley / Return of Happiness is the only other I’ve found so far). Fossil is good. Nice mix of the softer ambient stuff and the real harsh shit. Through the Window is another non-noise ...

Well it did come out, if that's what you mean: looks like you could probably get the whole thing (to date?) for like $30 plus shipping

It depends what you think there is in Eva to be understood. In terms on explaining the events that underlie its plot, I think NGE was way more straightforward - we still have almost zero insight from any character in the films as to a HUGE number of plot events, let alone backstory - for example we ...

Guhh, that's disheartening because I prefer to read manga as physical copies. I guess it can't be helped. Also I thought FFS had ended long ago given how long it has run but looks like it's one of these eternity projects which makes me feel a bit leery. Nagano's not gonna croak befo...

Glad to find that somebody else has already made the post I was gonna make about Trek crumbling under the weight of its own fan-fueled demand for continuity. None of the post-TOS shows are really any good, and TOS was already frequently shitty (though I love it a lot): like cape comics or fo...

Has FSS manga been released in States? I've never seen a physical copy (and the only scans I know of are not great quality, which is a pity as Nagano's crazed imagination really shines more in a static medium than in motion) but there is an English-language version. No idea how wide...

- Heavy Metal L-Gaim aka the remaining 80s Tomino mecha epic done between Dunbine and Zeta Gundam. From what I understand it enjoys pretty good reputation too and is most notable for having Mamoru Nagano's character designs, mechanical designs and plot contributions in general (in fact Five...

First of all, the Touga-thing. So, in this version, Utena and him were a couple. But he died? Because he was the boy who saved the girl, that almost drowned? And Utena witnessed the whole incident, but later forgot about it, until she arrived at Ohtori. Right? So all her visions of Touga are just i...

I'm glad you linked to that essay because it had been totally under the radar for me. It makes pretty obvious a lot of what has already been speculated about exposition of Shinji's character in Rebuild. Shinji in NGE is a sort of Ephesus House of the Virgin: he may or may not have genuine si...

Now it's me, or is the scene in REVOCS an huge reference to Evangelion? You missed the biggest homage of all though: REVOCS, a sinister multinational god-building think tank answerable to apparently no one, is actually a mere front for COVERS...an even more sinister multinational god-building think...

I finished Star Driver, and I liked it. It had a unique style that was appealing, and the characters as well as their motivations were prety good as well. I know there was a movie that was released early last year, but is it a compilation film, an original story, or does it pick up where the series...
