Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

It just sounds like everything just got messed up and now everyone's trying to point fingers at others because of the poor reception The main interview was in the June issue of NewType, i.e. would have been on news-stands about the time of the wedding episode; at that point, the ratings were decent...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Q: How did you decide who was responsible for the script of which episode? Hayashi: The director had already planned out episodes 1-6 in considerable detail and handled the script for episode 1 himself, I was put in charge of episode 2. Yamazaki: From around episodes 8-11 onward [7], the rough stru...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

TL /a/non has dropped the full translation of the June Newtype interview, a short excerpt from an Interview with Hayashi and Yamazaki (worked on the setting and wrote the scripts for episodes 7 & 9) from the same issue and a few excerpts from an interview with Hayashi from CONTINUE vol. 54 which...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Here's a heresy for you -- with the current state of the art, CG is perfectly acceptable for use in animation, and not just for purely mechanical things or backgrounds. I'll still see Mirai of the Future when I get a chance - sans Evangelion 3.0+1.0 trailer I'm sure The third-hand reactions I've see...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Apparently in the June issue of Newtype, Nishigori was interviewed, and in it he said that he meticulously planned out things from episodes 1-15, then figured that "things would develop naturally from there on." Which probably explains why the fight against the klaxosaurs and the Zero2/Hir...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

one thing that has always put me off magic girl type anime, is I just find it kind of to light and fluffy Magical girl shows fall into two buckets; one aimed at little girls and airing in morning or early evening slots, with a secondary audience of young men ( PreCure being the standard example her...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

A few thoughts a week on -- it really was the (lack of an) editor what done it; almost like each episode came from a slightly different parallel universe's version of the series. Once again, the final episode has the same extreme attachment to inconsequential detail as before, this time with the Mis...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Darling in the Franxx is Evangelion for Gen Z. We just thought it looked cool. If DarliFra is the new NGE it's in the way that it handles the symbolism it uses. Even allowing for what I've seen termed "the Rodriguez Effect" -- the tendency to think that just because something is in a fore...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

I was busy this afternoon, hence no livewatch. Going back to read the /a/ thread after watching the episode was a hoot. Man, I didn't think they'd have the balls to avoid problematic issues like 100 dinobabies, maybe more . Truly this was "The 14 words ( nihonjin edition) -- the anime". Ac...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

It feels like the missing part of the creative team was the editor. There were too many ideas getting jammed into the space available, leaving it feeling like it was the result of three or four different series being smashed together. OTOH, if it weren't such a multi-way pile-up, what would have eme...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Meanwhile, unless we get a Gundam-style UNDERSTANDING event out of the blue, Hiro is going to end up terminating many trillions (maybe more) of innocent beings, several billion of which will have been human, as a side-effect of destroying VIRM. It's likely to make Shinji's genocidal efforts as Impac...
