Re: What do you think Asuka has a degree IN?

Asuka's role is already within the in-show military, (Misato's even referred to in terms of standard military officer ranks like "Captain" and "Major") Soryu is never thus referred to, and she's the one who mentions having graduated when checking Shinji's physics homework. Does ...

Re: How do you feel about grown ups watching anime?

Ah, a thread that popped up while I was away. My first reaction, of course, is "who is accusing me of being grown up?" :tongue: Really. to me, it depends on what their taste in the medium is. As I've remarked before now, the attraction for me of Japanese media is that that part of it that ...

Re: What are Anno's opinions on the original series ending?

I feel like it would undermine the show’s message about self-actualization and not running away from the pain of reality. From a viewpoint in the Cartesian Theatre, what would be the difference between executing on the current substrate and on some other one? The series ending is an affirmation of ...

Re: What are Anno's opinions on the original series ending?

I think the TV ending fans who talk about preferring that ending over EoE don’t realize that EoE is probably the reason why they like the TV ending in the first place. Some maybe, but not all. When I watched the series my reaction was pleased amazement that "they actually went there", ful...

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

I've been finding a few odds and ends to watch -- someone has subbed the first couple of episodes of Six Hearts Princess , another rather different magical girl series, Different, as in it opens like this https://thumbs2.imagebam.com/d2/2b/da/5fd32c1365165649.jpg with the use of ships as projectile ...

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

If you've seen Z Gundam, then you should be prepared for Tomino women and the things they get up to. The sudden time skips just leave you to infer the details for yourself rather than having to sit through several episodes while it happens.

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

Unfortunately I didn't feel much watching The Day I Became a God Apparently the series didn't go down well with the Japanese fans either, leading to Maeda Jun dropping off social media because of the negative reactions he was getting. black In other news, the Toji no Miko OVA was little more than a...

Another season ends... Iwa Kakeru was the only one I was following, and it was an adequate "cute girls do cute climbing things" offering, but no more. The quirky rivals from the other schools were mostly Chekov guns that never fired, with only Asuka Kurusu Anne being given much development...

Alas, they don't show up. The ampersands in the URL query string get escaped to '&' while being saved, which breaks them; and stripping all the query string just gives a "Bad URL timestamp" response.

There's a lot of quoting of the whole previous post going on in this thread. Just because you can is no reason to do it all the time. And in the Japanese title there's a symbol of musical repetition, which is interpreted as a loop Which all depends whether you count the ꞉ after the text as part of t...
