Re: Evangelion's Yoshiyuki Sadamoto Designs Sunrise's Starwing Paradox Project

I just love his illustrations. I don't think you're allowed to be an evageek if you don't. :wink: So it's an anime, right? I've always loved old Sunrise, so I guess I've already got high hopes for this one. I need more outerspace mecha battles in my life. The mecha designer from Gundam:...

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

March comes in like a Lion . Having picked up very late on recommendations, and only now having caught up, it's going to be frustrating to go onto a weekly schedule after marathoning so much. It's a curious show; its focus varies greatly between different arcs which at times has made me wonder wher...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

The idea of dual piloting paired with the personal relationships between the pilots is a very cool idea. It'll be nice to see where they go with it. I think they can really do a lot with the cast, though I do think it's still too early to call too much. The mecha designs are pretty cool and cute(I l...

Re: Anyone else feel dislike towards EoE nowadays?

The first time I watched it, EoE felt almost like a betrayal. Yea, I felt the same way. It messed with my head and ruined my day the first time I watched it. But now it's my favorite flick; I do believe that's the course it takes for a lot of Evageeks. Without EoE there is no Evangelion. I'm going ...

Re: TETSUOOOO! The Akira Thread

I received that Akira 35th anniversary manga box set for X-Mas(thanks mom!) and I finished the 6th volume yesterday during my lunch break. Truly a masterwork and an absolute joy to read. I watched the Akira film for the first time way back in February 2003 on a Thursday night. It left me very confus...

Re: Official "What should I watch next?" thread

^Since it came out in Japan a bit ago I thought one or two users may have seen it. But yea, I've seen When Marnie was There (in theatres no less). It was pretty dope. Didn't realize it was by the same dude, I thought it was some other Ghibli guy for some reason. Haven't watched Arrietty yet. I'll pr...

Re: [Sports] Who's your team?

How weird is it to say saints will upset the vikings? well thats my pick anyway It's like January 2010 all over again. I'd really love to see the Vikings win though, after rooting hard against them back in 2010(they had Favre then, and Bears fans could never really stand him). It'd be cool to see a...

As the NFL playoffs are one of my favorite sport events of the year, I'm very glad to see them underway. Since the Chicago Bears embarrassed me, my family, and my city I hope some other Evageeks are fans of teams that are still alive. As I said last year, there aren't many things in sports I enjoy ...

Re: [Literature] Currently Reading (discussion)

Currently reading an old copy of Haruki Murakami's The Windup Bird Chronicle. I should've read this a long time ago, but after reading 5 of his other books, I decided to read this. It's the longest one of his I've read, and it's quite enjoyable. The whole thing is basically an existentialist harem ...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

It would be common at this point to say (as I do) that FMA 2003 was the better show, in spite of not having the (then unwritten) completion of the manga. Is that your position? I haven't seen the 2003 series yet, and thanks to my thoughts on Brotherhood I may never. But if I ever get around to it I...

Re: Controversial Anime Opinions

Plus the dub doesn't help matters one bit, particularly Steve Blum as Spike gets really grating on my ears. It's fair to dislike the show, and indeed on point with the reason for this thread, but putting the blame on a dub isn't really fair, since Watanabe didn't have anything to do with it, as he ...

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

I agree the second series is as well done as the first; but I'm not sure it added anything - there comes a point when too much Mushi-shi gets a bit boring. I guess it needs to be taken slowly and not marathoned. Yea, that's fair. The show is one that I feel isn't as good on a second watch as on a f...

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

I was so disappointed by the first few episodes that I dropped it. I sorta feel I ought to watch some more as a matter of form, but haven't yet managed to drive myself to it. I'd say take your time on watching it, and maybe don't watch it at all. I probably wouldn't have said that before the 12th e...

It's been quite some time, since I've seen Haruhi, but I feel like you're both right at that front. I enjoyed it enough when I first watched it, but it might be one of those shows which are so deeply rooted in the time were produced, they don't quite work as anything else but time capsules.

^ I never understood why people are concerned with things like plot holes. Especially in time travel movies, those are almost a given, if you look hard enough. I think with Shinkai's films, especially the wonderful Voices of a Distant Star , 5cm per Second , and Your Name , he probably realized tha...
