Re: Release Date: June 27, 2020

While people in Japanese cinemas are silent to an almost eerie extend, from my experience Austrian cinemas aren't that rowdy as well. Is it true what I hear from American screening? People yelling, clapping and screaming? I guess it's a difference in culture; Japanese see the movie theatre as a pla...

Re: Final Fantasy series

In regards to the VIIR being more "anime-y" they might be referring to the way Cloud seems to be portrayed (as he is in the later VII works) in comparison to how he was in the original release. There's a infamous image you can easily find on the internet by searching "Cloud then Cloud...

Re: Final Fantasy series

but I'm curious: What about Midgar did you hate in the original? Maybe it's just my '97 fan-sensibilities talking, but I was mindblown by the scope of the city and how the player was thrust into "blowing shit up" at the very start of the game. It was mostly the atmosphere and setting, to ...

Re: Final Fantasy series

I'm getting paid tomorrow and I'm still on the fence about getting the game. On one hand, I'm a sucker for steelbooks, I still am a Final Fantasy fan through and through, and anything with Aeris in it should automatically be good. On the other hand, Midgar in the original was so fucking AWFUL ; I co...

Re: News [NO POLITICS]

The news apparently broke yesterday but seeing as my two days off with company are Tuesday/Wednesday I wouldn't have heard about it from work. Anyways, Bob Iger just stepped down as CEO at Disney and his right hand-man Bob Chapek has now become the new CEO. Iger is still on the board of directors bu...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Holy fuck, this thing is less than five months away. Maybe it's because I have other entertainment right now, or the fact that it's been almost eight years since the last "release date" we've gotten for this movie but I'm not very hyped right now. Maybe it'll change when we get closer to ...

Re: Fate/Stay Night, Unlimited Adaptation Works

So I would like to get your guys's opinion on my current situation. I'm hugely into owning physical copies of my media/entertainment. I tend to be a sucker for steelbooks, artbooks, and unique packaging. Unfortunately Aniplex doesn't make this easy with the Fate series (or any of their other titles ...

While going through my play-through of FFXII The Zodiac Age, I was able to defeat and acquire my favorite summon/Esper in the game, and promptly made an Avatar to celebrate.

Re: Any chance of watching EVA 3.0+1.0 in the premiere in Japan but with english subtitles?

Let's not forget Khara specifically made an English version for movie poster. They are definitely aware of Eva's popularity overseas and they might want to market towards that.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I have to wonder why Disney/LF/Abrams felt the need to cater to those VIII contrarians. The general audience are not 1:1 Star Wars fans. I've seen Marvel movies in theaters, but that doesn't make me a Marvel fan. The general audience is gonna applaud whatever Disney threw on that screen, JJ & D...

But yeah the Epilogue is a bit whatever. I did like Recalled Out Summer better though.

I received both the Heaven's Feel movies in the mail today. After watching both, I'm really digging this route. Heaven's Feel was the only route in the Visual Novel I didn't finish, I was never really interested in Sakura but these movies definitely made her more endearing and she certainly stole th...

So I was gifted this boxset for Christmas last month since everyone that knows me knows I'm a huge Fate nerd and I've been wanting to get into the rest of Type-Moon content. I really, really liked all the movies except the last one. The Epilogue felt incredibly weak and was kind of waiting for it to...

I don't think Rey is too powerful either.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

I also agree with reviewers on every Star Wars film so far. So I don't see what's weird about their scores and reviews. The fact that it's Star Wars and it's not congruent with the audience's perception of them. It took YEARS for the Prequels to garner the hate they got and even then they still get...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Come on man. Disney has been caught inflating their revenue, and I have not forgotten them claiming Captain Marvel was sold out for weeks despite my theater being only semi-full opening night. It is absolutely not far fetched to think that they would have some sort of deal with higher end reviewers...
