I'm liking Ms. PurpleHair's Vulcan fingers at 0:20.

First episode is out and the first 2 reactions I saw were really negative.

But there are two episodes out already?

I'm liking it so far. I had zero expectations going in, and it's been impressing me. I'd seen Inferno Cop and Ninja Slayer before and those shows, while good, didn't really show off amazing direction or writing. Amemiya Akira has surprised me with how good the directing is in Gridman.

I don't know a thing about Tokusatsu or Ultraman though, and I feel like I'm missing a billion references and homages.

A lot of the negative comments I've seen have been from people who seem on principle to abhor CG; personally I don't mind that, nor the way that it seemed to be being used to emulate the look of guys in rubber suits.

There were a few points in episode 1 where the (lack of) animation seemed to be reaching for late-NGE levels though -- the ones that stuck in my mind were a long still frame in the classroom, and one with a rather awkwardly drawn group picture at the junk shop that just zoomed in on the MC with only his lip-flaps being animated.

People will be negative about anyyyyything.

Ive been loving SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Gridman so far. Both eps were a treat to watch; love the backgrounds with the giant kaiju off in the distance.
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
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!!

Oh, yeah. Forgot that. The CG isn't awful, and I do like that the fight scenes use CG and 2D animation without it feeling too jarring. No CG would still be best, but it's hard to complain when it's used this way.

I'm in love with this show. It's competent in cinematography and features actual sound directing. I don't mind that it isn't state of the art from a sheer technical standpoint.
I'm just happy to see a show handled by competent staff.

I was hoping this would get released on Hulu like Darling in the Franxx did (not that I intend to watch it but still, the opportunity it there) but I guess I need a Crunchyroll or whatever the Crunchyroll replacement will be - I haven’t paid enough attention to the breaking announcement this week - account to stream it, right?

Note: I’m trying to be a good boy and not Torrent stuff.

Neon Genesis Junior High School eh. :shifty: This show's great btw, reminds of all the things that made me love Japan/anime as a young kid, very well done so far.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Wait, what? I’ve kinda not been paying close attention to a lot of Studio Trigger lately (just too busy, I guess), so I’m finally getting around to maybe watching Franxx sometime soon, but...

Like, on the whole it’s nice to see Gainax-spawn do Mecha again (and Gridman does look interesting), but in what way are these things in Franxx piloted that would make one ragequit by episode 1 or so? I haven’t seen it yet and this comment made me super curious for well over a week.

:bigeyes: :hitthetable: :rofl: :pointup:
Done. That one singe frame is exactly as much of the show as I've ever needed to see. Just from that one frame (and some of the mecha designs I came across), I can tell that the premise of Darling of the Franxx sounds like something embarrassing and stupid I would have thought of as an 8-year-old while trying to sexually discover myself.

Yes, let's bring on Gridman ASAP.

Short of starting a Crunchyroll account - it's not the money, I have that, it's just I have too many streaming accounts and know I'd only use it once or twice a year at most - or resorting to piracy - don't do that anymore - is there any other venue to see SSSS.Gridman? I haven't looked yet but can you buy the series as a download anywhere?
Thank you.

If the show is on Crunchyroll, they let you watch all of it except for the latest Episode.
I don't have qualms about pirating, because the industry is almost entirely producing shit. I want to give money to shows I wanna support instead of showering the industry monthly via streaming subscriptions. If I like a show, I buy stuff from the show. If I love the show, I buy unhealthy amounts of shit from the show.

Either way, SSSS.Gridman is rather excellent. An easy 8 in my book - could land on a 6 to 9 range depending on how it ends.
