Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

I'm not too crazy about Zero Two(I don't like her attitude) I know, right. Lucy/Nyu was much better, at least as far as horned abominations with pink hair go. But we've now got the same "first girl is the forgotten childhood friend (and also rescued from the authorities)", so all that's l...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

So, having seen the hype, I watched the raw of episode 13 to see whether I might want to pick the show up again, now it's gotten around to actually admitting what was heavily foreshadowed in episode 1 and ought by rights have been episode 6 at the latest. My reaction was that I liked it better when ...

Fun fact -- The interval between EoE and 1.0 was shorter than that between 1.0 and now.

I think the behaviour is fairly standard for things that aren't really search engines -- the database will have indexed the words, and dropped a standard stop-list ("a" "the" "and" etc.), plus the forum specific high-frequency items that would make the SQL queries retur...

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

So, the first episode of the LoGH remake surfaced on YouTube. It seemed to cover the Imperial side of the first two episodes of the OVA; so I'm not sure how much of even Book 1 this apparently one cour show will attempt to adapt. The space battles showed how animation technology has improved over th...

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

So, the season is coming to an end. Yuru Camp∆ rounded itself off nicely, fast-forwarding to spring, and cherry blossoms. One for going on a Google Earth holiday along with, and not worrying too much about the times of sunrise and sunset (there was rather too much light in the sky at 05:00 on Christ...

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

But if another season comes along, I would expect to try it, and hope to enjoy it as much - however, there's plenty of scope for them to make it better. From what I've read, it seems that the adaptation actually outran the source material, and the ending is an anime-original conclusion of what are ...

Re: Nerv Nevada, S2 Engine Installation, Unit-04 Sabotaged?

Seele doesn't gain anything by wiping out Second Branch. "Only we now have the secret of how to install an S2 engine into an Evangelion. Without the experimental material or our secret notes, it would take too many months for Gendo to duplicate our work, and thus be able to upgrade his squad n...

Re: Nerv Nevada, S2 Engine Installation, Unit-04 Sabotaged?

At that point they were already starting to have their suspicions about Gendo getting too independent; Second Branch is wiped off the map very shortly after Misato returns from their inconclusive debriefing following the Iruel incident. As for why, they later tell us Kihl: The creation of a God is n...

Re: Nerv Nevada, S2 Engine Installation, Unit-04 Sabotaged?

Since I watched the series as a conspiracy theory with foreground giant robot action, my read of the Unit-04 event was of someone covering up (and destroying anything that might be used to help duplicate the work) after they had achieved exactly what they wanted from the experiment. The "someon...
