Re: FLCL: Seasons 2 and 3

I've watched 3 Episodes. There are moments, that are as strong as the entirety of FLCLassic. Sadly, they are just moments. The pillows are underutilized - almost no orgasmic uses of blasting choruses accenting climaxes. The design work and script are quite nice, the shots are dynamic, but the actual...

Re: New Music Video for A Cruel Angel's Thesis

It's not new at all. This came out to promote the DVD release almost 15 years ago. This is a HD-reconstruction. There was one in HD, but that was fanmade. They've actually hinted at this a few days ago in a Tweet... I'm a little disappointed, since I thought it would be something entirely new. But t...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

I agree that the Zero Two/Hiro thing is a bad thing because it's unhealthy co-dependency (even if that is the only way to stabilise a "ho into housewife" fantasy like this), but if this show were truly proto-fascist, do you think it would be using a main couple that are race-mixing? lol @...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

I've read somewhere that pretty much the whole industry is pretty much booked out until 2020. Even Miyazaki had trouble recruiting enough artists for his new movie he wanted to be out in 2020 for the Olympics. Now, if such a prestigious workplace like Ghibli has trouble to find workforce, I kind of ...

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

^ It's really hard to sell me on superheroes, though. I think the concept of superheroes is just inherently lame. But the concept of Gridman is kinda cool. I feel like the actual show will be much more to my taste than the teaser. I already like the tone they go for (claustrophobic close ups and spo...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

That's sharing your opinion though, which is what the topic is there for. Thanks for the back-up, brah. I don't know how recent it is honestly. But in current society I know it is effed up, and Franxx is being released into current society. Well, maybe. Current Western society, that is. But in the ...

Re: News of Anime in Japan

I think the Shibuya ward hands out certificates, which are not legally binding in Japan or even the rest of Tokyo prefecture.
Nevertheless, it's cute. I'm happy for them.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

My sentiments precisely. I am (not) alone I'm not against that myself. I mean, I don't know if it's due to an economic downturn in Japan or something, but recent mecha anime just... they feel like there's no soul in them anymore. The Gainax spirit is still alive - all those people are just not focu...

Re: Evageeks Watching Sport: 2018 World Cup Edition

I'd love to see a weird finale like... Switzerland : Iceland or something. I'm not that big into football, but the World Cup tends to get me... I remember being in Germany in 2006 at the time - t'was pretty neat. Time sure flies, huh. Generally I'm always rooting for Japan, as a proper weeb should. ...

Re: FML general thread [8]

^ I know it might sound like shit advice coming from someone who lives near the alps with real winters and glaciers and stuff... It's nice to have that climate until you have to live with it. In summer, we tend get 40°C droughts punctuated by increasingly heavy hitting thunderstorms, while in Winter...

Here's the finished version of Sagisu's recording: https://youtu.be/a6gq6TDtBK8?t=3m25s (Spoiler: It's from his Xpressions album. Don't know why he's posting about it now but there you go.)

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Because this "let's keep watching so that I can complain about everything" attitude is toxic as fuck . Also, I think the opposite is true, actually. Looking away when shitty stuff goes down, because you don't like it is the mentality Austria embraced when the Holocaust was in full swing. ...

...you know, if you dislike the show, you could always just stop watching it . As I said, I can't... I feel like it would make the time investment be for naught. I don't think I've ever watched so much of a show I hated that much. But it is a special kind of train wreck. It wasn't even that bad unt...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

The protracted finale nobody asked for, Episode 21, starts off by aliens casually instrumentalizing all the humans, except for some they kind of forgot, who also conveniently happen to remain important to the plot. Logical . Then they go full on Wikipedia and explain the plot. Gripping . One of the ...

They are debuting the first Episode there.
At first glance, this looks much better than FranXXs. Let's hold out hope.
