Re: FML general thread [8]

Moments that make me pause: Getting myself perma-banned on another forum for pointing out that you can add trolls to your ignore list without missing anything important, to which apparently a mod took exception and decided I could also be missed (no warning whatsoever) :???: I guess it wasn't very s...

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

You mean things like Unrated Batman v Superman, Snyder Cut Justice League, Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey, Joker, and (checks notes) possibly the upcoming The Batman movie? I mean, these were all works based on children’s entertainment and reworked to entertain an adult audience that never grew out o...

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

to be fair, going by that description it might not be for children, but it's something a child would enjoy, but a well-adjusted adult would find ridiculous. which is why I'd put it into the otaku niche - an audience of perpetual children failed to mature. It's just that in that particular genre Tri...

Re: EvaGeeks Forum Rules & Regulations

The word-filter functionality in the forum software is geared towards removing the seven words you couldn't say on TV or the modern-day equivalent thereof, and doesn't handle the case where the deprecated slang is applied as an affix. At best it would locate just the affixed words and replace them ...

Re: EvaGeeks Forum Rules & Regulations

Honest question with regards to a recently closed thread that was closed after the original author was repeatedly told to stop using a certain word : If the word in question is banned, why don't you just add it to the list of banned words that will show up as asterisks in people's posts? AFAIK, most...

Re: SSSS Gridman - Studio Trigger (2018)

I felt the direction and actual content of the story went in completely different directions. Visuals were great, but they were also convinced this was Evangelion when it was a pretty simple children's show. The action scenes were great throughout, and the best episode is the one featuring the best...

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

Gundam takes a test walk . Wait. I know where this one is going. 10,000 years from now, after the apocalypse, the remnants of humanity in Japan will be worshiping this thing as their god. It will be overgrown with vegetation and barely recognizable, and sat next to a derelict temple. Then they will...

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

Today I watched Char's Counter Attack for the first time in a long while. After watching Zeta and ZZ the plot is easier to follow, but the movie really suffers from some bad Tomino info dumps early on where the Neo-Zeon characters basically have barely comprehensible disjointed exchanges filled with...

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

Hanasaku Iroha episodes 14 to 26 watched. In general more fanservice, mostly onsen-based, and more drama than the first 13 episodes. The fanservice is a bit too much at times, e.g. Minko gets basically shown entirely naked from the front save her naughty bits (nipples and crotch) that are hidden by ...

Re: The Macross Legacy Thread (Incl. +/DYRL/Zero/Seven/Frontier/Δ)

Well, it's been a long time coming but I finally got to watch the seventh episode of Macross Frontier! :D THIS is why I watch Macross for the most part, for the sorties in the Valkyries and they did not disappoint. The fact that it was taking place during a Sheryl Nome concert didn't distract at al...

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

Nagano worked on Zeta and is credited as "Design Works," which meant that he worked on ship designs and other equipment (I know he at least designed the Argama) but I don't know if he designed any Mobile Suits. He did the Qubeley and quite a few other suits, e.g.: https://safebooru.org/in...

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

ZZ episodes 17-39 watched. There are quite a few filler episodes in this part, some of which have very formulaic plots and annoying continuity errors. These probably match with the period Tomino had to retool ZZ after getting the green light for Char's Counter Attack. It starts getting better with t...

Welll that depends. I'm by no means an expert on which company distributes what, but Gundam shows almost all have a 500 bucks limited edition thing that comes with way more garbage than you'd ever reasonably expect; I don't fully expect that to happen for Eva, but I wouldn't be surprised either if ...
