Re: Sarazanmai-New show by Ikuhara (Utena)

I am excited for this. The only thing I'm worried about is that MAPPA is doing it. Seeing how they have made shadow the brilliant Banana Fish in its anime incarnation, I fear Sarazanmai is gonna turn out to be more emo boys melodrama than genuine drama like Utena.

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

Still very much in love with the series. Especially at this precarious moment when I'm about to wrap up this long running Utena X Penguindrum fic I've been working on for SIX YEARS. Ah, the feels I still get from this show even now.

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

After the Revolution is ending with a Miki/Kozue chapter. I was hoping that Ikuhara's new anime might be a matching Utena sequel TV series, but it looks like that's not to be:

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

The light generic-shoujo first arc is there to set stage for the dark and genre-desconstructing later episodes. The ordered repetitions between the episodes in the story arcs also serve to highlight the characters' change/growth . . . that, or maybe I just like this show too much. I'm now juggling t...

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

The debut chapter of After the Revolution has drawn light to an interesting reveal:

Apparently every core Duelist has been missing a mother, if not both parents.

Sounds familiar, anyone?

Also, in case Stillborn or anyone else is interested, Seinen Kakumei Utena finally got updated :D

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

Manga is out! And it is confirmed to be an ongoing sequel, with the second chapter coming up in winter. Current installment confirms just how much Chiho Saito loves the Touga :D

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

Hehe, thank you for these author-enabling praises (you've totally just sped up my next update XD). I figure if Utena can become a car she can damn well become an EVA. At least the latter is biotic and has a 99.99-% DNA similarity with humans :D Also in the TV canon there's an intimate quality to...

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

Personally I'm not sure if I'm happy about this. I mean, many series lives on as a diverse variety of often wonderful fanfics. When oficial seqeul comes up it often disappoints and muddles what was if not a good story, than at least a good base for fanworks. Your Utena fic was damn awesome. I am so...

Re: Revolutionary Girl Utena

I appreciate hearing about this, as IIRC this is the first time in over fifteen years that any of the original Be Papas group have created something for the Utena franchise. I look forward to finding out more about this, though as haven't read the original manga, I am unsure if I'll be able to foll...

Re: Continuing NGE?

It's the same thing with mine. In fact, it does raise an interesting question for everyone: Is this the case for fics from relatively old franchises, such as Eva, or does it affect fanfics in general, regardless of genre or franchise? I think Eva fics are already the most reviewed amongst the 90s o...

Re: Continuing NGE?

What really kills me is that everyday (no exaggeration there) it gets new follows/favs but none of those people ever review. Reminds me of the plentiful kudos I've received back when Hedgehog's Dilemma had semi-regular updates on AO3. Fun times. With longer works, I find that readers tend not to re...

Re: Continuing NGE?

I'm getting the impression that the current fandom generally disregards everything that deviates from canon further than Peggy Sue and/or isn't crack. Having dabbled in NGE fic writing for the last couple of years, I've gained a little insight on how to cater to current fandom demographics. Supposi...

Re: Continuing NGE?

Re: fic reviews Are things in the EVA fandom that bad already? Yes, the fandom is old, but I always thought it's easy to get reviews for EVA fics - which explains why The End of Hedgehog's Dilemma still earns faves/follows unto this day despite its unchecked grammar and irregular update. Utena fics ...
