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

A couple of series have passed the three episode test, something old, Natsu no Arashi , which comes over as a plausible sit-com pretty much in despite of the SHAFTisms, and something new, YoriMoi , being cute girls doing cute polar expedition things -- even if the art style is such that the characte...

Anno got the ideas for Asuka he added into the DC retcon from a doujin he read. The original is, I believe intentionally, much more ambiguous.

Re: Am I alone in having a love hate relationship with Elfen Lied?

^ It's really not that bad; most of the splatter is front-loaded into the first quarter of the first episode; and it's so cartoonishly over the top, with the usual anime physics of the human body being filled with ten gallons of blood under high pressure, that it's easy to sit through. If you want u...

Re: C.T.1290 versus Asuka. Examining the good and bad.

principally because she claims that she 'doesn't need anyone' but wants Shinji to be her 'Hero'. Such sort of contradictory behavior reminds me of hypocrisy that is one of the things that I despise, that I despise like hell. Does the concept of "planning for the worst, hoping for the best"...

Re: [SPOILERS AS FUCK] 2ch Q synopsis prep. for anal devastation

The material in the first couple of pages was drawn from 2ch in the hours after the first screening of Q; there was a lot of signal, but also a lot of dedicated trolling, too.

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

The Koihime Musou series continue to be trashy fun in a nostalgic vein -- I'm most of the way through Shin now. As a true nostalgia binge, I dug out the first Dirty Pair Flash OVA, and realised that I have been spoiled by modern anime -- low budget now is likely to look like Kemono Friends , rather ...

Re: Best service to watch anime around the world

Well, it's two years old. I guess something would have changed in that time in that branch. Crunchy has been a legit service with nigh world-wide reach (as opposed to making money off streaming unlicensed fan-subs) for almost a decade now -- I can't remember if I watched anything from them before S...

Re: Was Ikuhara supposed to direct the show at one point?

Anno did indeed want his friend Ikuni to work on the series. It's long been known that Ayanami Rei was named for Hino Rei as an enticement. As it is, Ikuhara's one known suggestion, that the series end with Rei being pregnant (as a jab at the waifu fags), didn't happen, and we just got an Ikuhara ex...

Re: Dealing with being thirty

how to deal with the existential crisis that comes with it? Buy a Harley-Davidson. Oh, wait, that's for 50, not 30. I don't recall anything particular for 30; if anything, it would have been that I had finally "levelled up" as an adult. That was still at the time of high tensions between ...
