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

Gundam 00 (first season) : Starts up painfully slow, with too much exposition via the narrator and too little exposition via actually animated sequences. The first 10 or so episodes' battles are awful (or the series creators were really intent on showing how all of earth military were woefully inep...

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

Fate Zero: Well, that was depressing. But not the most depressing and darkest anime I've watched (that still goes to Vampire Princess Miyu, which manages to outdo this one in bleakness with less gore to boot). I found some characters annoying, but grew to appreciate some of them (Waver Velvet &...

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

It's a shame almost everyone seems to agree that 2202 is inferior to 2199. I adored the original, and on a recent re watch I liked it even more, so hearing this concerns me a bit. Doesn't help that a lot of staff changed. I'm still determined to buy the blu ray and watch it that way once I can, I j...

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

Space Battleship Yamato 2202 : Quite nice, but suffers from a single major problem: The plot and its pacing. The series is, in a certain sense, much more Japanese than 2199, as the concept of Yamato (the meaning of the word) is made central to the plot, in a rather ham-fisted way that feels like th...

Puella Magi Madoka Magica Rebellion : Well, I now understand where all of the fanart painting Homura as being creepily obsessed with Madoka comes from. :bigeyes: There are the regular yanderes in anime, that simply murder/bludgeon/otherwise violently take out the competition, and there is this : ba...

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

Puella Magi Madoka Magica movie #2 : Again, not much new stuff compared to the second half of the TV series. It adds some new scenes and an epilogue/preview to connect it better to Rebellion (movie #3). Canaan: The Les Yay is strong in this one (no outright nudity or too blatant fanservice). Also, ...

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

Recently watched: Puella Magi Madoka Magica . I had somehow expected this to be psychologically darker and more gory (more akin to what Narutaru is to the mons genre), but it's still a fairly upbeat story with pretty visuals despite being a deconstruction of the magical girl genre. I'm not really a ...

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...

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...
