Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Also a correction from me, AniDB has a 10 rating scale and Darlifra's aggregate rating right now is < 5. Watched ep 24 again. Seeing the klaxosaur fleet returning drove home how pointless the human struggle would have been if the klaxosaurs had gotten serious with them. Finally it came down to klaxo...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Watched ep 24 Saturday night during Anime Expo. I had read the spoilers earlier in the day but seeing it in person improved by view of the ending. However not the series as a whole. The material and potential were there, however the execution fell through. The high ratings on MAL (https://myanimelis...

Re: Evageeks Watching Sport: 2018 World Cup Edition

With Germany repeating history and getting bounced in the group stage, I'm throwing in for France and Mexico (since they're CONCACAF), and it would be nice to upset Brazil.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

We almost there. Space battle was quite lackluster, but that wasn't the main point. Now how to watch the final ep during AX next weekend... Hachi gets to do his Dr. Franxx impression now. https://i.imgur.com/jnXLMSu.png Anyone else actually tear a little during this scene? https://i.imgur.com/5eByaV...

Re: Girls und Panzer

Japan has generally had more tolerance for doujins as derivative works in particular, so trying to restrict their distribution is a head scratcher.

Re: Girls und Panzer

I can understand blatant bootlegs of merch, but the extending the restriction to doujins is surprising.

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Read the first volumes of Blade of the Immortal and Detroit Metal City. Wasn't really drawn in by Blade. However DMC looks like it's worth following up on. Also finished the 2nd volume of Goku: Midnight Eye. However since the series in English is OOP and is an older one, haven't found a means yet of...

Leave the series hanging and piss off the remaining viewers. Or the ending is unsatisfying and they make a movie or 2 that delivers a more satisfying conclusion.

Now all we need is a song to rally the allied fleet and defeat the enemy. Wait, that's Macross.

Episode title is Darling in the Franxx.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

They seem to be taking a bit too easy. At least we know the original Nana is back.

I suspect that Kokoro's reaction is due as much to no longer being able to function as the pistil as to official confirmation on her pregnancy dropping.

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

The nicovideo ratings were the lowest for the series to date. So far as I can tell, they're following chaz' lead on this one, rather than getting angry -- which may mean no episode 15-like rebound, no matter what happens next. Thinking on it some more if this trend holds, it would be worse than the...

Thanks for that. I'll finish the series, but I'm not as invested as I was used to be, which nosedived at the VIRM reveal.
