I'm not sure if movies count but it is animated and if we're talking about obscure cartoons, I can't go without mentioning Fantastic Planet (or La Planete Sauvage , in French) which stop-motion paper cut outs. I've heard it described as a cross between Terry Gilliam's ani...

Even though the animation is great, I think "Paprika" is the weakest of Satoshi Kon's movies ("Millenium Actress" is just behind that)

sorry, that was pretty weaksauce

Mechashiva gets it. :nod: (Man I keep forgetting I still need to see the show the character is from.) Yeah, I mean, him cross-dressing didn't hurt anything either or the frequency for him getting buck naked :hahaha: He's such a pie-in-the-sky idealist and optomist that he just wants the protect the...

I live in Northern VA and I've noticed the area I live in is split between rednecks, military, and the ghetto (my community college classes guaranteed I had at least one fellow student was there on the GI bill or wore camo-print jackets and hunted) But yeah, as for the ghetto part: do dr...

Finished Turn A Gundam finally. I sort of put off finishing it because the part I was in (about ep. 20-30) were sort of slow going and stuck in a rut but I decided to push ahead and finish because I actually did like it and wanted to hurry up and finish so I could watch something else. I don...

Kind of TMI and kind of a weird RML but my period started this morning and I'm just so relieved, despite the cramping. Its kind of a long-ish story but the past couple weeks I was going through kind of an ordeal involving REALLY bad cramps but nothing really coming out and then I tried looking u...

I got kind of sidetracked but I read the first few volumes of the manga and the things I liked were: -YMMV but I kind of liked deadpan/snarky Shinji, maybe not better than anime Shinji, but it sort of took a different path from a constant given of his personality in that he chooses to express himsel...

I can definitely see that, that Kaji's watermelon plants and the simple pleasure of making something grow, would be something Shinji would do to find some peace of mind.

Its kind of like you need to break yourself down before you can build yourself back up again and its hard to really get that place without retreating away from the painful truths in life. (i.e. you can't fix something bad without acknowledging you have a problem in the first place) Evang...

Trying to finish Breaking Bad (I'm on season 3) after it sitting on my Netflix Watchlist for ages. I hadn't been watching it because Jesse reminded me of a douche-wad friend of my parents (who has now fallen off the Earth somehow) but now I'm like "Wow, why did I sto...

Been watching "Princess Tutu" and "Nadia: Secret of the Blue Water" mostly. Princess Tutu is re-igniting my love of classical music (it made me re-watch "Fantasia" just to see the Nutcracker Suite) but I'm too early into it to get a sense of where it will go...

That's not his only regret, if you ask me. I'd say he's wondering if he's done something to make himself deserve the punishment of being abandoned by the person he loved the most. Remember Episode 20, where Shinji is dissolved into the Eva? Ritsuko attempts to salvage him and bring ...

Yeah, I can see that. I haven't read the manga yet so I wasn't sure. Its like even though Gendo and Yui were partners, he regretted letting her use herself as the first test subject and becoming lost inside the EVA-01's heart and he's driven to fix that mistake even if it means using...

So I haven't updated in a while because I've just been writing other things but its just a matter of how much of the last episodes I can translate coherently so thinking "Okay, what is the intent of the ending? What have all the episodes been leading up to?" Most of "How can I...
