For the shy Yuushabros out there -- Washio Sumi part 3 PV, subbed already

Since this series is being part-funded funded by public money (tourism advertising from the Kanonji local government), it doesn't really have to turn a profit.

I prefer my take; it involves monkeys.

Clearly, Japan wants to solve its population woes by tricking otakus into ******** horses. I mean hey, it worked in America. That poor damn pony.

Ikuhara directs new show at MAPPA
This is amazing news. MAPPA has finally a director who knows how to structure and write a story and actually has a vision beyond grim-deep-cool. (Then again Yuri on Ice was amazing). And Ikuhara isn't stuck with people at Silver Link who obviously struggle to animate anything good looking.

Hey man, Garo(the first season) and Singeki no Bahamut have good direction!

Anyway, this makes me happy. Yurikuma was good, but a letdown compared to Ikuharas previous works, so hopely this will be a return to his previous heights.

Terror is Resonance was also a pretty cool MAPPA series, and had one of the directors. Though I may be the only person who remembers that series...and maybe you had to stay up late to watch Cowboy Bebop on Adult Swim back in the day to truly appreciate Watanabe? haha

And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

As I recall, it was quite well done; but for me the basic premiss was unconvincing, and became more so as the series proceeded.

I enjoyed it, but the problem in hindsight was that it used all this exploitative imagery (especially in the opening episodes with the blatant references to 9/11) and didn't really do anything MEANINGFUL with it. It wasn't commenting on Terrorism, or discussing the ideologies that make people commit terror acts. . .it was just your basic Tom Clancy-ish story without any of the thematic meat I was really expecting from something that was tackling terrorism. Especially in light of ongoing events in the real world.

I'm with Ray on Terror in Resonance. Joy Evangelion is right, that it was still awesomely directed (as expected by Watanabe), but the script fell terribly short to go anywhere.
SPOILER: Show
Especially the fact that nobody died due to the terror acts kind of broke it for me. This decision alone bereft that show of a lot of tension. Also, the backstory for the MCs was terribly boring. They could have gone so many more interesting places with the concept, if they were "normal" school kids turned crazy because of "normal" reasons, instead of yet another Anime conspiracy.


Grim-dark-derp is an unfair assertion, as is that I blamed the directors for their shortcomings. I just found all of their shows, while always good looking (though quality tends to drop pretty fast as the shows go on) to be terribly lacking in writing. I hope Ikuhara has a good team to bring his vision to life!
