I was calling him Guy mostly as a joke because he doesn't really do much.

So here's my take on Episode 6: Sarah (the American chick from earlier) is raped by one of the King Hamdo's goons. Needless to say, she doesn't take it lying down, and beats the shit out of him with a glass bottle, then runs away into the desert. Meanwhile, we join back up with Guy and the other soldiers as they attack the village. Guy gets cold feet, so another kid beats him up. They load all the women and children from the village onto their big truck and head back to Hellywood, but as they do one of the other soldiers seems to feel guilty too. I'm sure that's not going to be significant later on /sarcasm/.
This is the episode where some serious shit starts to go down. We see the depraved lengths the people in Hellywood are willing to go to, and at the same time we're given our first hint that they might not be all bad.

I was waiting for your reactions to ep 6. I am disappoint with your lack of shock and disgust. I’ve only seen the show once, but I remember that opening scene as being especially difficult to watch.

Watched a few eps of the DanMachi spin-off, Sword Oratoria. The comments section is considerably more entertaining than the show itself; seems Lefiya is about as popular as a Wasp in a car, and the fact that she’s getting more attention than Aiz does not make the commenters happy.

Agreed. This show is one that's very hard to remain dispassionate over - is this an indication of how much society has become desensitised of late, or am I reading too much into an individual reaction (before the show is finished, at that)?

I knew some of you were going to say that, so I'm going to explain it here: part of the reason I'm not as shocked as I might otherwise be is because I'm already a fan of series that are "messed-up" and "disturbing". I've already either read or watched Bokurano, Narutaru and Tokyo Ghoul, not to mention almost the entire bibliography of Stephen King. I guess my taste in fiction has made me used to this by now.

The only thing I remember of NHNT is that this show is so bleak, it left me with a queasy feeling. I was rather young, but looking back it pretty much is tragedy porn, isn't it? I don't know if I could take that show seriously today. Texhnolyze is a much more interesting depiction of the same feeling.


I've watched Koe no Katachi.
Kyo-ani and Yamada get better and better. This movie is even another step up from the already mesmerizingly stellar production of K-ON! movie or Hibike! Euphonium. It is a joy watching those characters come to life with amazingly detailed body animation. I love how Yamada emphasizes pictures and sounds instead of explaining what I am supposed to think and feel. She definitely is one of my favorite filmmakers in animation, and it's awe-inspiring seeing her getting better and better by leaps and bounds with every project she handles magnificently.
Now, if they could just pick source material without inherent melodrama.
From what I've heard, the adaptation thankfully toned it down significantly. It still seeped in unearned pathos at times. I'm not good at handling soap operas. I'm just too allergic against melodrama.
I think the movie is about redemption and reintegration of the male MC, after bullying a girl. While he could have been portrayed as an asshole, the movie successfully went out of its way to make him sympathetic. The main girl struggled not only with her loss of hearing, but also with a case of severe mental retardation, as she has only seems to have very superficial thoughts and cannot understand the world around her. I love that this movie represents a minority, but it's hard feeling sad for someone I'm not sure is even capable of understanding what is happening. And I don't mean the hearing part. I mean mentally. Her struggles to speak because of the deafness were spot on, though and coincidentally, very moe. Several times it made me laugh out loud, because the melodrama was so real and she's just mumbling like a baby getting raped in response. It was hilarious. She reminds me a lot of the TUTUTUTUUU~~~ girl in Steins; Gate. Sadly, in this movie we don't get the satisfaction of seeing her dying over and over again.
Many of the friends got the cut for time reasons, though. This is sad, because they seemed much more interesting to me. But on the other hand this resulted in a very straight forward tale, without detours though, so I won't complain.
Overall the plot is fairly uninteresting, but it's presented so amazingly beautiful I can give this an easy 8/10

"Tragedy porn" isn't really the best description, since the show does have something to say and it's not just torturing the protagonist for the sake of it.

That being said, I'm also watching the remake of Chi's Sweet Home. There's really not much I can say about it, except that it's super-adorable. Just thirty-four episodes (so far) of a cute kitten doing cute kitten things.

I didn't get that at all from either the film or the manga.

How much experience do you have of deaf people in real life? It can be hugely misunderstood. My wife is deaf (though not so deaf that she couldn't learn to talk, like the girl in the film); but it was not diagnosed in childhood, even though the school wrote reports saying "It's as if she doesn't hear what's going on". She nearly got sent to a special school for the mentally retarded - I won't explain how that failed to happen, but she went through university and got a PhD (in just three years part-time, while working full-time). So you see, you would not be alone in misjudging this character because of her deafness.

We now return to my recap of Now and Then Here and There, Episode 6: Back at Hellywood, Guy is arrested and thrown in the dungeon for stepping out of line in the last episode. The kid who comes to deliver him his food tells him he'll probably be sentenced to death, but this just makes him more determined to save Lala-Ru. He breaks out of the dungeon and finds Lala-Ru being interrogated by King Hamdo. He barges in to save her, but unfortunately Hamdo notices he's wearing Lala-Ru's pendant, and orders his general to shoot him. This gets Lala-Ru pissed--pretty much the first time she's shown any real emotion so far--and she uses her pendant to flood Hellywood. Guy and Lala-Ru escape, and the soldiers chase after them on what look like speeder bikes. Fortunately, our heroes have finally escaped Hellywood. Unfortunately, they still have half of this show left.

View Original PostMr. Tines wrote:G Gundam up to episode 32 -- finally, the plot starts to creak into motion again after half-a-dozen episodes of tournament arc. The second OP isn't anywhere near as good as the first, though.

Gatchaman Crowds Insight at episode 5 -- and I'm just not feeling it; rather than being Hajime vs the Establishment, Hajime is just part of the Establishment now, and the new characters aren't carrying it. Dropped.

Say what you will, but the Great-Grandfather character made the show for me. For years I've looked for a clear, Japanese discussion as to their mental perception of WWII, and the State Shintoism movement that threw them into the broader war in Asia.

And he summed it up pretty well: "We were caught up in a moment we let spin out of control, until we were knocked to the ground." I paraphrase, but the pathos of this moment was brilliant in my eyes, as was how the central message of this series dovetails with that of the prior one.

The prior series was about how technology would allow individuals to challenge the roles of societal institutions. Insight then is about how this new-borne power would feed into societal trends, and how the same old human instincts (to include those which form the basis for Fascism) would manifest themselves in the 21st century, with modern social media tech.

The series-ending Hajime-is-******-christ moment was overwrought (though, for me, stupidly fun), and I won't deny character bloat (old characters also get side-benched). But otherwise, I thought this second series was just as good as the first.

G Gundam up to episode 35 -- we're now on the "beat down the sidekicks" bit which obviously has to come before the straight path to the conclusion. It also occurred to me that we can tell it's the future, as there are no fair-haired Scandinavians left (Allenby, with the blue hair, coming the closest).

Fafner Exodus at episode 5 -- picked up on the strength of a WEG (Watched YuYuYu, Expected Madoka, Got Fafner); and I can see what they meant. I know this is me getting on several stops down the line, but I can handle there being a lot of back-story from the previous series you're expected to already have seen. I'm also sure that the rampant Hirai sameface (check the first few seconds of the OP sequence where they downright flaunt it) would be causing exactly the same level of "Now, which of the characters is this?" even if I was starting at the beginning. I'm waiting to see what sort of UNDERSTANDING this one will drive towards.

He's a character who dropped out of sight some time in episode 2, right when the new girl left for the big city; at which point the series turned over to the chat-show full of the new and vapid characters, with a bit of Rui-Rui wanting to be an hero by the way of action. You can tell the difference, since Hajime was obviously Hajime by the end of episode 1 of the first series; but the new Rei-clone girl is sufficiently insipid that I had to look up that her name was Tsubasa, even having watched almost to the half-way point.

Gatchaman Crowds and Insight are both fantastic and more people need to see them. In addition to just being fun as heck, they feel even more relevant and eerily prescient now than they did a few years ago.

Were you at all disappointed in John Bull Gundam's reappearance? Hoping a Britannia Gundam might instead take its place? :tongue:

He's a character who dropped out of sight some time in episode 2, right when the new girl left for the big city;

Which makes it all the more effective when she comes back home, and Yuru-jii lays down the law, stating that if she continues with helping to build up the Administration headed by Gelsadra, he won't mentor her anymore in fireworks, and will basically disown her as his family.

But she continues to self-destruct in her stubbornness, then when that comes to a head and she now realizes she's probably wrong, Yuru-jii speaks to her again, explaining himself. He also offers that though it drove her to do wrong at this moment in time, that her tendency to rush into helping others is one of her more admirable qualities.

Yuru-jii is shown to be a reserved character straight from the start, so for someone like him to take any sort of unprovoked, self-motivated action, inherently increases the gravity of that action. Ergo, I don't consider his absence through much of the series a fault, but an effective storytelling tool.

When he spoke up, the series basically became the anime version of V. Only with creepy, eyeless teddy bears instead of reptiles... so, yeah, basically anime.

Aura: Koga Maryuin's Last War: Or as Carl Macek would have re-titled it, I Was a Teenage Sepiroth. A pretty good little drama, but absolutely requires a working understanding of the chunibyo phenomenon.

******

Thriller Restaurant, episodes 1-6: How does one have a wham episode in a spooky children's anthology show? Why, by ramping up the horror levels up to traumatizing levels. Episode 6 of Thriller Restaurant is pretty fucked up in general, and it being a kids' show makes it just more whammier. I'm going to assume the following episodes won't keep up the same intensity, and I doubt they even could. After all, episode 6 hits so hard because it comes unexpected, after the show has already lulled the viewer into its presumed rhythm.

The premise: we follow a trio of elementary school kids whose home town sits atop a local Hellmouth, so all kinds of supernatural terrors occur basically every day. Each episode consists of three parts, the Appetizer, the Main Dish, and the Dessert; the first two are longer stories of roughly equal length, whereas the Dessert is a very short and often bluntly terrifying bonus story told by the main characters. The main strength of the show lies in the variety of its stories, because although the Dessert seems to always follow the same formula, the first two "dishes" are more unpredictable. Sometimes our main characters are the ones experiencing the horrors directly, sometimes they witness other townsfolk losing their sanity at the hands of the supernatural, and sometimes a dish is just the kids telling scary stories to each other, because what else would you do to kill time in a horryifying village of the damned where you might wake up one morning as a fish?

What's so especially terrifying about episode 6 then? Let me break it up for you:

SPOILER: Show
Image
The Appetizer: Ako, our lead, and an expendable classmate stumble upon a trippy Drifting Classroom style pocket dimension inhabited by a gaggle of cannibalistic oni, and a slasher style chase ensues.

The Main Dish: In the show's biggest twist so far the ever-present supernatural terrors take a back seat, as Ako and her family have a brief night-time run-in with a markedly non-supernatural murderer fleeing from the police. It's all very understated and unnervingly realistic. The murderer doesn't even try to harm them; his car has broken down, and he just tries to bullshit the family not to call in any assistance in order to slink away into the night. A feeling of something being deeply wrong hovers above the whole exchange, and it's not until a little later when the cops arrive when the family realizes what just happened, and what might have happened had things taken a turn to the worse. Chilling stuff.

The Dessert: What's worse than being buried alive? Imagine being buried alive, dying underground and your ghost being unable to escape the casket. Yeah.


It's an unforgettable episode, and I'd definitely like to see a child audience reacting to it.
And it must also be mentioned that the show has a very boogielicious ending theme for a children's horror anime.

Given that the series was so far in bed with the French from the very beginning, I had zero expectations along those lines, especially as the John Bull Gundam looked like a Grenadier Guard, and didn't even have a token Union Flag waistcoat to resemble its namesake.

Which makes it all the more effective when she comes back home, and Yuru-jii lays down the law
My guess is that this confrontation comes in the last third of the series, where it ends up being too little, too late. Or, if the half episode close to the end of Crowds spent explaining the point of Hajime to anyone who hadn't already figured it out is anything to go by, it might well end up being too much, much too late.

The trouble is, by episode 5, Insight had already failed what chaz calls the "Tines Test", and other people call invoking the Eight Deadly Words, and that despite (because of?) being a series I was going into with a favourable disposition, having liked the previous one. No amount of closing straight awesome can fix having already checked out of the ride.

It's time now to return to the recap of Now and Then Here and There--Episode 8.
The episode starts in a desert, where we see a person's arm sticking out of the sand. The arm turns out to belong to Sarah, who gets pulled out of the sand and hauled off by a creepy-looking guy in a mask. Bet we'll be seeing him again. Meanwhile, Guy and Lala-Ru are zipping through the desert on their speeder bike, only to get caught by. . . the Sarlacc, apparently. Stormtroopers. Tusken Raiders. Speeder bikes. Sarlaccs. The Star Wars jokes just write themselves. Anyway, they escape from it (the details are too boring to type), and Lala-Ru tells Guy that every time she uses her water pendant she gets weaker. This is the first real "filler" episode the show's had, and a lot of it seems kind of unnecessary, like the out-of-nowhere plant monster. But I have a feeling things are going to pick up again once our friends reach. . . wherever it is they're going.

Finally after a couple months of delays, I finished off Mobile Suit Gundam II: Soldiers of Sorrow. I think it took some time getting through the whole thing because of the teenage drama and absence of Zabi family members reminding us that there is a big bad that needs it's well deserved punishment but that's saved for the third movie which I will get to eventually.

Seikaisuru Kado ep 9


SPOILER: Show
So the anisotropic ( aka "God" and a universe with... 40 dimensions?) created a series of seeds within seeds of information (with each seed being a universe with less and less dimensions), in the hope of creating a "divine thread" (BUDDHISM IMAGERY FTW!) of information generating under its own power, and got that with with the 3-dimensional universe that Humanity occupies (or are we 4 dimensions? I never know when you should count time :tongue: ).

All because the anisotropic is an information junky, yet was facing an information drought, and was kind of bored. Yeah, I can dig that.

Also turns out, Yaha-kui is the Yandere to Tsukai's Tsundere, and the latter is like a sleeper anisotropic being.



One more thing, totally called it, Yaha-kui gave Shindo tech that would allow humanity to fly. What I don't get though is the means; it's essentially a control apparatus over the parameters of the universe. How much mass weighs, an object's current location, how fast time moves, etc. If you give copies of that machine to 7 billion people, isn't that like having a couple of dozen people who aren't talking to one another edit the same word document? Except, exponentially more ****** because we all live on that word document?

On to episode 9 of Now and Then, Here and There.
This time, our heroes have made it all the way to a village, with flowing water and plants and everything. This place, the locals tell them, is called Zari-Bars, and apparently it's where the assassins who tried to kill King Hamdo earlier came from. So Guy and Lala-Ru get taken in by this old lady who runs an orphanage, and learns that Hellywood's army has been in these parts before. Then they attend a big speech/political rally/shouting match where another guy basically tells us all what we already knew, which is that Hellywood Is Bad. He says he wants to have Hamdo killed, but the leader of the village says no because he's so insane now he's probably not a threat anymore. But since we still have four episodes left, that's clearly not the case.

Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

Black lagoon (second re-watch)

I swear to god it never ever gets any easier watching episodes with Hänsel and Gretel there episodes just make me so sad every time around because there a product of what people have done to them and how sociality has utterly failed them and that there messed up because they've seen things children shouldn't and done sexual things no child should have to ever do and both of there death's feel deeply tragic...
SPOILER: Show
The only silver lining is in the credit scene which implies that they both went to heaven and are free of any pain.
Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.
