Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I'd find it hard to believe we've covered all the manga, plus it's still ongoing. While I'd dearly love an S2, the facts don't look so encouraging. Episode 12 took us just past the end of chapter 54 -- roughly where the tank s had reached at the start of this year -- out of the current 70-some, hav...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

How much further is it ahead/different? While the broadest brush description of the manga would be the same as about the first cour of the anime, there are many differences in detail (e.g. a role swap for Goro and Ichigo in episode 9; a completely different take on how Kokoro's partner swap happene...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

So, end of the season. Symphogear AXZ carried on OK to the end, and XV managed a decent ending to the franchise before the power creep rotted it entirely away. Neither reached the level of G 's ending, nor GX 's first episode, even if the final form transformations in XV looked good. As expected, Ac...

It looks like, after all these years, there's a new (concluding?) novel in the series, the first part of which is due out in a couple of weeks (in Japan).

Re: Why do people (or maybe you personally) dislike episodes 25 & 26 (the TV Episodes) so much?

I know people would be mad because they wanted an "epic final battle" to end the show off with a bang or something Not so much as no final boss fight, but the way the TV ending appears to drop all the running plot threads (e.g. what about those other Eva units talked about in episode 22?)...

> 1. Are they as good, better, or worse than the original series? It depends on your criteria. The movies aren't being done on a shoestring budget (time or money) as the original TV series, and have the benefit of a decade-plus of computer animation technology advances. > 2.

Re: Gendo's silent line: new theory

4. He addressed Ritsuko as Akagi Ritsuko-kun. -kun is for children. Adding a -kun to an adult's name is a way of mocking that person for being naive. Seriously, this is a "watch more anime (or at least, consume more Japanese media)" mistake. Yes, the honorific is used almost by default to...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

I actually wonder why Shinji would be interested in Asuka in the first place. A good-looking and somewhat exotic girl around the house? Definite side-dish material; but with that abrasive personality, really no more. Shinji and Rei aren't any better. Episode 6 makes a better case for Shinji having ...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified

Wasn't Asuka's pseudo/broken infatuation with Shinji established all the way in, like, Episode 9, and further developed in Episode 15? There was even a whole running theme of kissing and everything. (Heck, even Episode 10 explores this, and it's considered the least useful Eva episode ever.) I mean...

What does "activating" mean exactly? It means completing the sign-up process, and then logging in; something you did 8 years ago. If you look at the member list for the recently joined , it's the accounts marked with "(Inactive)" against the user name, i.e. have not yet shown an...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

It was bad. Searching through the archives, the keywords are "boring", "slow" and "sterile". Turning to the merely bland, I dropped Granbelm after episode 5, as a failure by the usual criterion -- the beam-spam was pretty enough, but for all that it was full of sound a...

They say "overlap"; and that term is used in Anno's favourite source of inspiration, Ultraman, to mean "can do the fusion dance". This will be the way we get that 08+02 hybrid from the next time preview.
