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

Dunno, I'm not really into that much cuteness. Probably grown out of it. I can't compare, not having watched any of the titles you mentioned, but where we do overlap, I would definitely class Shimarin and the members of the Outdoors Club as cute girls. But I didn't really god the PSA part untill yo...

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

Yuru-Camp; If you just want to relax, but don't really get inspired to go camping. Camping is bad! There's a reason why I said that the series was blood-chilling adventure. Of the recent cute girl outdoor activity PSA series, this is the one that hasn't made me wish I could go do that thing -- not ...

Re: NGE2: First Ancestral Race and Seeds of Life

- The FAR are actually from another universe. The phrasing used here is the same as in episode 16 ("I think it leads to another universe"). If this were classic scientifiction from 80 years ago, where universe would have been used as shorthand for "island universe" (i.e. galaxy)...

Re: Celebrity RIP Thread

When I went up to Cambridge in the mid '70s he was being rushed into the Lucasian professorship because they didn't think he'd last long enough to take it up at a more traditional age.

Re: News of Anime in Japan

There have been a number of new announcements linked on /a/ over the weekend -- there must have been some industry expo going on. I've just copied the ones that have familiar names. Adding to which, new Psycho Pass project for next year -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONsIal0E5sI Of course famili...

Re: Peoples reactions to Nge foreshadowing Eoe deaths

From context it seemed obvious that what played out was

Gendo: You know that thing we've spent all this time trying to prevent. Well, I'm off to start my own version of it.
Misato & Ritsuko: Over our dead bodies.
Gendou: Always happy to oblige a lady. ... Rei, it is time.

The amount of official and semi-official KawoShin material rather skews how one evaluates this particular interaction, though. It's not just the fujoshi erasing the self-insert girl to pair the guys together as is more typical.

Re: Rebuild outside of Evageeks: Many reactions

At the superficial level, the current state on /a/ is roughly that 1.x is forgotten, 2.x is regarded as pandering to Reifags, and 3.x an overcorrection for Asukafags and Kaworufags that came about because Anno felt that his waifu and husubando had been losing badly to Team Blue. While there may be s...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

It's not like it being unpopular will affect the show, so why should I even care. I was trying to guide Cybermat47's expectations vis-a-vis this being another show in the mould of Kill la Kill , rather than, say, being Kiznaiver with mechs. While absolute popularity is not the same as quality*, the...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

It's by A-1 Pictures, who are outsourcing some of the work to Trigger, which means that many of the folk working on it are old Gainax hands. In particular it's being directed by Nishigori, who is better known for doing character design for TTGL and P&Sw/G . That involvement means that this serie...
