I've never seen it, or even, AFAIK even had the opportunity to do so back in the day.

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

As well as having effectively picked up Darlifra from episode 18, and continuing with Toji no Miko as it heads to the final confrontations, I stuck with Last Period for the three episodes needed to get to the Casey and Friends cameo, but having accomplished that I see no reason to continue with it. ...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

There's no reason for anyone on the opposing side to know any of the information. Can't you spot recruitment pitches when you hear them? Franxx just wants Yui klaxxohime to love him, so he explains all the bridal preparations he has made, before she shoots him down. Meanwhile, as all Hiro wants to ...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Yeah, we could have had the boring "Hiro goes to do his job, Papa betrays them, klaxxohime makes her move on Hiro, Zero Two has to cry to free him, then they turn around and destroy Papa and all is saved", but instead the ex-Gainax staffers finally started doing what it is they know how to...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Am I seriously not hallucinating this shit?! I think the hallucinations are at their end after raiding the Gainax vault with the secret stash (of discarded notes from previous projects). Finally, after meandering in place for a dozen episodes (maybe more), it looks like the series might actually tr...

Also spotted in the PV : are we going to go full-on Gurren Lagann here soon? https://kek.gg/i/6ws5Lb.png This mech looks like it's a pistil. Is it going to be part of the Hringhorni drive system? black Forget the above, I think. Klaxxohime putting out the trash https://kek.gg/i/5kPhVx.jpeg https...

Re: Lovely Angels

The lack of thread is a testament to how the Lovely Angels are Eighties af. As indeed you can see in the responses to this post:- Watching something dirty http://i.imgur.com/c8CXGTj.jpg In any case, so far as I'm concerned, Dirty Pair is an American comic book first, an anime a distant second.

Re: My Anime List

Well, my account is probably hosed as none of the mailboxes I still have access to have the 26-May email from them, and I have no idea what address I might have used. If the list ever becomes visible again, then I might scrape it. UPDATE : I'm back in, having had some inspiration. Still no sign of t...

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

Uruhara -- cute girls fighting cute alien invasions in a somewhat psychedelic version of Tokyo's Harajuku district, with a side of the usual crippling social anxiety about (not) having friends. Entirely fluff, but harmless; had it been played as serious drama without the cute, it would have been wa...

A little flexibility in dates is a small thing to ask. Breaking the laws of physics is one thing; breaking arithmetic is something else. The timescales aren't anywhere near enough for the population explosion and childbirth disincentives mentioned, during the time that only the "rich" had...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

Also the whole wedding stuff felt pretty forced and cheesy. It was still the more interesting of the two weddings that could be watched last Saturday. Coincidence? black Episode 19... Oh dear, where do I start? Perhaps by saying that I should have stuck to my original judgement after episode 2, and...

First klaxosaur was spotted in 2036, APE councilman said that war against the klaxx has been waged for century, so we can guess it's ~2140 now, and Franxx has been doing the absolute minimum of getting high off his own supply.
