After nearly 20 years, Gainax is finally going to make Blue Uru. I'd better finally get around to seeing Honneamise.

hah, made a post here 3 minutes earlier (:tongue:)


This is just surreal. I can't even say if this is good thing or not. Honneamise is classic but everything else Yamaga has done since then has been awful.

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

:scanners_head:

Only took them 2 fucking decades to finally pull the trigger.

I wonder whether the basic story treatment Gainax and Anno came up with in the early 90's will still be used to some extent....though that may have fallen by the wayside when Anno decided to use his ideas for NGE instead. It also states that Yamaga's original screenplay was included on a CD-ROM realeased in '98. Has this been translated by anyone?

I would rather have had Anno direct this instead of Yamaga, seeing how it was gonna be his baby to begin with. Plus it'd be nice to see some action-oriented anime from him that isn't Evangelion once in a while y'know?
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I have no idea what to expect and am curious how this will turn out.

Haven't seen Honneamise yet but now I have motivation to watch it. Hopefully this will be good.

I was just counting works he directed when I wrote that tbh but yes, 0080 is best thing Yamaga ever worked on.

View Original PostNAveryW wrote:Gunbuster's pretty neat too.


Bahh. What made Gunbuster great is the burning anime otaku spirit GAINAX exhibited as collective and especially by Toshio Okada and of course Anno's directing. Gunbuster is not Yamaga's baby by any stretch of imagination, even though he was one of the main writers on it.

As much should be obvious by the fact Yamaga was the SF guy in GAINAX who wanted to make his serious arty scifi flicks while Gunbuster is clearly more dominated in spirit and style by the anime otaku of GAINAX.

Plus like with 0080 he didn't direct Gunbuster (thank god) so it didn't enter my consideration.

He actually mentioned it as a possibility just some years ago. Anyway I really felt like they were going to do Blue Uru, I'm not the greatest fan of Honneamise nor I'm too optimist about this project but let's see what they can do.

EDIT:
Does this say something about Sadamoto doing the manga adaption?
So let’s make a wish.

It looks like a pilot film will be released next year. From what I've read of the article, I am assuming a pilot film is a short work meant to garner financial backing for a feature legnth production, or am I completely wrong on this one?

Yep. I was going to link to the Redline pilot from 2004, but it looks like it's been pulled from Youtube.
It should capture a bit of the feel, like test footage for a live action film.

So does anyone actually have a copy of the "Blue Uru Frozen Designs Collection" CD-ROM?

Isn't that also how the first film was pitched? With a pilot film?

Well that's pretty much to be expected with Gainax only being a shell now.
