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

Digimon 2020 ep 13 The antagonist digimon this episode was something new; Cannonbeemon who looks like a living METEOR unit. It's the most "inanimate", building-like Digimon I've seen, in that it doesn't react when the digidestined start blowing holes in it. In fact besides its eyes glowin...

Re: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Kind of had a double take moment for Kyon's seiyuu. "Wait, he's how old?" (39 ftr)

I forgot that's it's been more than a decade since the original series came out. -o-;

Burn the Witch Okay, so I read after watching that this is a Bleach in-universe show? I guess I sort of noticed that; they cast spells in a similar way to Soul Reapers and they're in "Western Soul Society". But the witch gear doesn't appear to be a true analog to Zanpakutos, it's more lik...

Oregairu S3 Finale Well that was a 5 year wait for... ok'ness... Episode 11 was well delivered, but this episode, as expected, just felt waffy and out of place next to the tone of most of this series. Narrowing the "I want something genuine" of Zoku to "I wanted a girlfriend" he...

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

I also just couldn't engage with the central through-line of Violet and the Gilbert guy. Everything leans so heavily in a romantic direction and when I thought Violet was in her early 20s at the start it felt like a promising central hook for the series but when I learned she was 14 at the start of...

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

This is 100% how I feel about Violet Evergarden I think to me it was just too cliche? Like I felt I saw the story be done a lot before, and it seemed like the scenes that were trying to get me to feel something were just trying too hard. It was a tad too cheesy. The show is a meta-symbol for studio...

Rent-A-Girlfriend - Yes, the general story and main character are terrible. Lying makes everything better, right? It's a shame, considering the effort put in to the look of it all. The characters are very pretty drawings, I was even thinking "Blimey, those are some cute old ladies". I sti...

Re: Motivations behind sexual themes in NGE B/

I really think you could have done NGE mostly unchanged with the characters at university, but in the end the high school setting is just more romantic and nostalgic in people's memories I guess. Middle school in Eva's case. And while I have no true Idea, impressions about it lead me to believe tha...

One of the few anime portrayals of aircraft that doesn't make me roll my eyes. Or fear the FBI is monitoring the link.

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II

I recently rewatched the first season of IBO, and I was wondering how popular was the show in Japan According to a 1.7 million poll taken two years ago, it's ranked #6 in the Franchise, and Orga is ranked #3 out of all Gundam Characters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PzBQgBIeaI OTOH, it had only ...

I don't think Great Pretender fucking rules like chee wrote, but it sure is a better way to pass the time. Or Re Zero, or Oregairu, or Fire Force, or Appare Ranman, or literally anything else. Uzaki is probably better. Deca dence is the best anime this season IMO. Its sense of pacing is right on; i...

Sing Yesterday to Me Just watched the anime of this before reading. While the bonus specials help to provide context, the anime ending is just atrocious. It smacks of regression for Shinako, and lack of maturity for Rikuo. "1st girl didn't work out? Time for Ms. back up!" The manga offers...

Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown - 30 minutes are spent at the start recapping material you’ve already seen (same animation, no new scenes); Yeah, I nearly thought it was just a recap movie and dropped it on the spot. The story beats from the old episodes were captivating just long enough for me to re...

My go-to: The dangling doll is another reminder of Kyoko's wish, which ultimately comes true (mother and daughter dying together). Of course it might not have been a wish, but lived experience. Still-alive Kyoko as Evangelion 's resident Hodor ? Given that A.T. fields can project or share informati...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified BP

Nihilism might be the wrong word. Pessimism is less contentious I think. That said, EoE especially follows the postmodern mindset of questioning everything until there is nothing of beauty left, so maybe I am confusing that with Nihilism. It also really doesn't take a stance on anything. "If i...

Re: Asuka isn't Justified B/

Eh, I was a little worked up when I wrote that. EoE hits a little too close to home regarding depression, and I fail to see much hope in the narrative side of things. I obviously don't know what Anno thinks; but there is a quite heavy streak of Nihilism running through EoE and to a lesser extent th...
