Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

Even outstanding new titles like Yuasa's Devilman Crybaby only last a few months nowadays and there's plenty to discuss with that as well. There's just way too much anime getting released now that the only things to become "classics" the past few years are long running shonen stuff.

Re: Disney's Live Action Little Mermaid.

I haven't seen any of these live action Disney remakes and let's be honest the only one that has any chance of being good is Mulan if they make it an over the top Wuxia film but disney would be way too cowardly to do that.

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

Sorry if what I was saying wasn't making myself clear but I'm just trying to say it's a bit crazy that a 1:1 Ultraman reference would be this lore and story important. Most of the 1:1 Ultraman references in the past have been more visual, Gendo talking to Shinji in the holding cell is a recreation o...

Re: "EVANGELION:3.0+1.0 AVANT 1 (from beginning to 10:40) Version 0706" discussion and prediction thread

I thought the Wunder looking like the carrier from Yukikaze was just an inspiration thing but now I'm wondering if all the drones and a few other things I'm seeing means that we're getting something like the Jam. To be honest I haven't watched 3.33 in years so I'm going to watch all the rebuilds the...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

I just worry that visually the Adam's were made from Ultraman going backwards. Ultraman is a being made entirely of light and only looks like that after fusing with a human. Could their designs really be so visually significant to the plot at large if the design sheet was literally just "ultram...

Re: Adams, Children, and the Nature of the Cycle

I just worry that the visual cues of the Adam are clearly made to resemble the Ultras as much as possible and to work backwards from that for plot significance would be odd. The "Third Eye" and lack of core on the one Adam is just because Ultra Seven's color timer is on his forehead. Zoffy...

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

8 Man After was a really interesting unique take on a classic show. The old 8 Man show was from 1963! It was a robot super hero who bizarrely would power up by smoking energy cigarettes. It's cute and pretty fun, certainly better than the old Marvel cartoons. 8 Man After was a 90's OVA that re imagi...

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

I'm seeing takes that Khara's translator is a literal Pedophile Nazi for liking Girls und Panzer art. We're really getting to experience what it would be like if Evangelion came out in 2019 at this point.

Re: Netflix Release General Discussion

This is going to sound like a dig but I'm being serious, does a boy spilling his heart to another boy then looking him dead in the eye and saying I like you not blunt enough for a western audience? Have you never had someone tell you they liked you before? Do they drop the L bomb immediately? I feel...

Re: Netflix English Dub Discussion

Full disclosure, I am a nearly 100% sub watcher, but I do watch dubs occasionally when with a certain friend or two of mine who watch dubs. I am not a big fan of this one though. Shinji just sounds very off to me in particular. Also, I got a warning on Twitter for saying "She" because thei...

Would prefer midnight. We'll see..


Midnight for west coast in the US so 3AM for me on the east coast.

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

I just finished an old fan service heavy OVA called Agent Aika. The weirdest thing of all was it was actually pretty fun! The setting for the series is a flooded world and there are many boats and submarines with great mecha designs that remind me of things like Outlaw Star. Practical submersible ve...

Getter Robo Deevolution

My roommate is a big Getter Robo and Dynamic Pro fan in general. I like them never got super into it. The art and story is pretty amazing so far though. Need a bit more to really pass judgement on it

I was pretty disappointed that we barely got anymore info about the Crystal Chronicles port. I don't even care if it's a straight port I just want it out ASAP!

A few trivia from the final scene : the actress in the final scene is Sakanoue Akane; as well as the Trigger paraphernalia in her room, there is also the Japanese equivalent of a Barbie-doll, called Licca-chan . Now, how would you normally expect that name to be romanized? black Obi Masaya who play...

I was let go and when I go home and check my bank account someone stole my identity and made a bunch of fraudulent charges. I cried until I was so dizzy I passed out on the ground in my living room.
