This is pretty cool news. It's been what 7-8 years since any evangelion content's been aired on Cartoon Network? It might end up bolstering the fandom in a similar manner to when the series was aired on Adult Swim.....though probably not as significantly as this is a one-off movie airing. E...

I posted my thoughts in the Digimon thread on this forum. You even replied to the posts.

I couldn't tell immediately if an episode was Hosoda's or not; just there would usually be one or two elements that would stick out because he uses them so much. I remember one episode I correctly assumed was his simply because actual photographs were used for pictures on a wall. He also has...

He also storyboarded some Utena under a pseudonym. I watched the series last year right around the time I was intently studying Hosoda's ouvre so I surprisingly found myself usually able to tell which episodes were his without looking them up.

Shouldn't one use the word "who" rather than "that" when referring to a person?

Haven't subs already been made based on the audio rip? It should be easy to retime that to the BD.

Recently started rewatching movies that stick out in my memory despite my remembering nearly nothing about them. Order I watch them in is based on accessibility. Ferris Bueller's Day Off was first. I don't think it's necessary to say much about it since it's so universally acclaimed....

Holding out was surprisingly easy for me this time, especially when I look at my 2009 self. I'll hold off on deciding whether to consider that an improvement in mental health or just an increase in general apathy. I was certainly excited when Q came out and choosing to avoid spoilers was difficu...

I don't think I've ever seen it outside of Hosoda's works. I want to know if that's because it hasn't been used outside his works or if I just haven't seen whatever he copied it from.

I'm sorry, but although I've seen the first Digimon-Movie, I have no idea, what you mean... Would you care to elaborate? Thank you. When Agumon looks over his shoulder repeatedly in different directions. Each time he does so, the camera cuts to a different angle, with Agumon now standing in...

His One Piece movie gets even better when you learn the allegory behind it. And this isn't one of those fan theory secret meaning things; Hosoda's outright conceded it. (tl;dr: the island is Ghibli and Baron Omatsuri is Hayao Miyazaki).

Mamoru Hosoda General Thread

I'd like a thread to talk about Mamoru Hosoda and his works in general. In particular, the movies and episodes he directed of existing Toei franchises and the common elements that permeate his works across the board are things I feel are overlooked and are also things I want to look into more wi...

Yeah, it hit me after my last post that aside from the Gumball Guardian's haloish thing and upright position the scene was a lot more like the God Warrior blasting the Ohm. Cole Sanchez, who storyboarded the episode, confirmed the reference was intentional. The reason for perceived Eva similarit...

It felt to me like a pastiche, mostly of the Sixth Angel in 1.0 and Unit 01's Initial Arousal Phase in 2.0. May be a coincidence like the supposed Madoka reference was. Adventure Time has referenced Utena a couple of times, though, so it's all good.

We're getting both Pacific Rim and a The Forever War movie soon. Watch them both over and over in rapid succession and you will eventually hallucinate a live action Gunbuster movie.
