Re: Misato as Nerv Tactical Operations Officer

Misato has her job because she's driven, competent, and good at thinking outside the box. Fun exercise: go through the show and count the number of times the word "Impossible!" is uttered (typically by Misato or Ritsuko). If Ritsuko is saying it it's because she's denying the reality in fr...

Re: Evangelion Pic Thread 9: Pen-Pen's Playhouse [use spoilers]

The show isn't specific regarding Rei's diet beyond "she dislikes eating meat", which seems intended to demonstrate Rei's maternal connection with all life. I would think that would extend to fish as well. Seems odd for her to be specifically a pescatarian and not a full vegetarian or veg...

Re: Best boy

You're doing a lot of handwaving here, essentially claiming Kensuke's the most mature of the kids by virtue of the fact that he's a secondary character who's never really fleshed out. I don't buy it. The picture business and the fact he seems utterly oblivious to the effect piloting has on Shinji ma...

Re: News of Anime in Japan

I'm kidding of course I never actually watched it. Then you've missed out, since it was a pretty good show. Sad to see the mangaka was treated like this; proof positive that publishers are far more worried about style over substance (which is an absolutely bizarre thing to say about this particular...

Re: Best boy

We also have the scene where the wind raises Asuka's skirt and he's filming, but I still hold my position. You can hold to it, but it still doesn't make sense. Far from being the most mature motivation, it's actually the most juvenile: Shinji is searching for a reason to pilot, Asuka does it out of...

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

Kemono Friends I can find no argument against watching Kemono Friends . However, I can find no argument in favour of it either, and there are many anime with a more substantial claim on my time than this. Plonk. I can give you one: in addition to being cute it is also clever, both in its worldbuild...

Re: Superhero Films & TV

Same with Pacific Rim IMO. The worldbuilding was bad, the main lead was boring, and the waste of the supporting characters was a goddamn crime. There were so many missteps in that movie that it was downright shocking.

Oh, and as for buying Japanese and getting fansubs, remember that the European court rulings that frightened the owner of Nyaa into shutting it down were not about downloading or torrenting - they were asserting that the fan-subbing itself is in breach of copyright law .

That could be anything, depending on which part of the books you read. There is no consistent character depicted throughout.

Re: Superhero Films & TV

Jesus, Ray. It's like you see an R rating and immediately lose all reason. This is terrible -- there's no way it will live up to del Toro's and Perlman's take on the story, and now any chance of their involvement going forward has been squashed. What a waste.

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

That is a curious design choice. Not only is it an unpresidented choice in this series, but it's a choice that lengthens the animation process. It would be easier to animated ATFs breaking or weaking like they did before, but this was a deliberate choice to be different. Not sure if the CGI's to bl...

Re: Superhero Films & TV

Villain protagonist? I suppose that could work, given the success of heist films generally. It'd certainly be a more coherent take on the character than anything we got in the books.

Re: Superhero Films & TV

Some X-Men can carry a film on their own and some can't, and I'd put Gambit in the "can't" category. Gambit has always been a nothing character. Jim Lee introduced him as a guy who looked cool and never really went beyond that, and this shows with the fact that he's never been able to hol...

Re: Stuff that you would like to see in 3+1

I honestly didn't notice anything wrong with the ATF animation in that part of Eva Q. In both sequences the ATF effects were treated like hundreds of individual polygons that could all be flipped independently. Neither case looked like ATFs we've seen before, and I'm not at all clear on why Anno ch...

Isn't it common practice in modern anime for spacecraft (or in this case, aircraft) to be portrayed in CG, like in the SB Yamato reboot? The bad CG in this case is not the Wunder or the drones, but the surface of the water when the Wunder pulled Unit 04's core blocks through. Even knowing it was pu...
