It's Strike Witches: Modern Warfare. I can see the appeal no matter how bad it may be.

Unfortunately, that's the way things are once a studio knows how to push the right buttons.

And also, lots of loads of ass-shots. :rofl:

Amazing display of shit taste. Originals don't seem to hold a candle against those based on existing media (manga, games, light novels, etc).

Speaking of anime adaptations, I hear Dangan Ronpa is getting an anime.

I just finished orenronen's epic simultaneous Let's Translate and Play of the original PSP game, and it was amazing. I even managed to avoid almost all spoilers by following the strict but helpful rules laid out in the thread: Do not google Dangan Ronpa. Don't look up anything Dangan Ronpa related, especially on Youtube, tumblr or fan art sites. It's a crazy intense ride - yes, even in Let's Play format - if you manage to keep your virgin eyes unsoiled.

By gods, once the anime starts drawing nearer, it's going to be horrible. 4chan is going to turn into a fireworks factory explosion of spoilers. Save yourselves while you still can!

Heard about it first on the retsupurae podcast(mispronounced to shit by the guy who did the translation to Snatcher, so I had to do multiple google searches before I found it), didn't know that Dr. Nick was a goon lol

So uh, anime huh.
I kind of wanted a Persona 3 adaption but this is awesome as well

So what is it about?

I guess the best way to describe it is Phoenix Wright meets Battle Royale starring a masochistic teddy bear with Doraemon's voice.

So is this like the Cluedo mystery stuff we just talked about? If yes, I'm gonna watch it - can't wait to be wrong again :coffee:

Trailer of new Shinkai film


dat art.

I'm unexpectedly really looking forward to it now
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

oh boy oh golly I can hardly contain my erection, it's yet another hyperrealistically rendered wallpaper-bait "romance" from...yeah of course it's fuckin Shinkai. why hasn't this hack made a movie about a struggling faggot animator with an eternal, doomed love for his own sappy backgrounds yet?

Nice rain tho

which of course makes it something I'd see anyway. As far as I'm concerned Shinkai has made two good films and two bad ones but then again I'm a sentimental sap so what do I know :lol:

Anyway, what caught my interest now was at least seemingly more unusual setup. The woman's 27 years old yo, this be christmas cake (non-)romance

Cat and a Woman was better than two of his features anyway.


Not strictly related and definetly not news but anyone aggravated by Shinkai's films can, like with so many other things, place quite bit of blame on Anno and Evangelion

Shinkai, 39, cites Evangelion, Hideaki Anno's coming-of-age epic of childhood betrayal at the hands of misguided adults, as having taught him "anime doesn't always have to be about crazy movement and a lot of action. Sometimes it is also about the words or even the lack of words, things not being spoken."



As if one couldn't tell it with first glance.

On another note, lolOshii


On creators in the industry he’s following:
>“None, really. There are talented, smart people out there, sure, but nobody worth paying attention to, I don’t think.”

On Mamoru Hosoda (Wolf Children, Summer Wars):
>“When it comes to copying other people, he’s a genius. But like (Evangelion director) Hideaki Anno, there’s nothing driving him, no theme, no substance.”

On Hayao Miyazaki:
>“Talking about him has become something of a taboo. For a director, that simply isn’t a good thing.”

On Madoka
>"Madoka is the first god-tier anime since Evangelion."

Oshii is full of shit, as almost always. It's hard to take comments like that seriously when they come from man who has been runnin on empty formalism and exhausted mannerism for ages and whose best film after GitS (The Sky Crawlers) is partly so great precisely because it absolutely fails making the case for its theme or "substance" if you like.


Those quotes are old too. Otaku USA in charge of fresh news etc.
