Arguably the film doesn't render the Incubators' prior characterization null and void, and merely elaborates upon their methods, giving insight into the sort of scientific exploration that's been necessary to gain insight into the problem of fighting entropy. Maybe there's something...

The reason I like ultimate better then the hellsing manga is because one of the biggest weaknesses of the manga doesn't translate over to the anime. By that I mean all the manga fights looked awkward as hell to me, but animated they actually look pretty cool. The best examples I can think of are...

The list of anime adaptations that even match, let alone improve on, their original is a very short one, regardless of episode count. Do you have any particular examples in mind? imo the first half of the urusei yatsura anime was an improvement over the manga, though the second half could've us...

@Defectron Yuri Bear Storm was this year's 1-cour series from Ikuhara, airing in the first quarter. @Thread We seem to be running into the sand in the last few posts dealing with shows from the last few months for which no real established wisdom yet exists; and it's still too early to be d...

Only read the manga, but One-Punch Man, while an interesting concept, was only good for a single story arc, because it never did much with the premise. Series of 2015 is easily Yuri Kuma Arashi. Only series that i watched as it aired without ever being late and genuinely missed looking forward to n...

I watched the first ep of punchline, looks like it could be good, but unless it pulls some crazy shit i doubt it will be #1 of 2015 for me, that will most likely go to one punch man.

The trailers I've seen make me nervous. It looks like SW7 could go either way at this point. I'm really not a fan of some of the design choices like the starkiller base and the new astromech droid, they look too Disney-ish for my tastes. What worries me most are the new characters. None of ...

I didn't dislike that scene because it was dark, I disliked it because it was stupid, I mean why ptrasaurs of all things? Why would ptrasaurs do that? I mean Indominus sort of had an excuse for acting that way but there was no reasoning behind the dinosaur version of the birds. Jurrassic World m...

Most of the robert rodriguez films I have seen I have liked, but that being said I don't think any of his movies have been great. That being said Camerons more recent films kind of fall into the same category of being likable but not great, so I can't say this would have been much better in ...

Holy shit this looks awesome! And in the second half of the trailer is he fighting a reboot of Iris? Iris is my favorite kaiju antagonist so it'll be totally awesome if they are bringing him back for this!

From what I've read it was the producers more than anyone who fucked up the Avatar movie, so it'd be interesting to see what Shyamalan would do if he had more creative control although I still wouldn't trust him with the series given all his recent turkeys. You can't put all of that...

I still wonder if Mari was something cut off from the tv series and then kaworu became the gay char along with a nerv woman. There isn't really any evidence of that I know of for Mari being a thing during original eva production but I have a hunch about where the names of Mari, Rei and Asuka ma...

So nagato yuki chan is still dropped for me, did they ever explain what the deal was with the split personality arc? That just seemed to come out of nowhere with no real explanation. Did the plot ever go anywhere? Did Nagato yuki ever actually dissapear? Watching this show to me feels like Inou batt...

I have been trying to show one of my freinds Madoka, I'll probably just show him the movie trilogy because I don't think I'll get the opportunity to show him the whole series.

Manga aside, that's a misinterpretation re: EoTV and EoE. In EoTV he's told he can make reality whatever he wants, but what that means (as evidenced by Ritsuko's analogy of rainy days) is that he can make the best of a bad situation if he wants. Just because reality is shitty do...

Yeah well, that's just, like, your opinion man. I do agree about movies 1 and 2 because those are recap films and the only good recap film is a Gurren Lagann recap film. Though if you never watched the series before I think the pacing in the movies works well enough as an introductory to the ma...
