Yamato 2199 ep 2: GODDAMMIT Japan, JUST BECAUSE YOU STICK GIRLS IN THE SHOW DOESN'T MEAN YOU AREN'T BEING SEXIST PIGS!

cough

Sorry, give me a moment.

Okay, I'm good now. Seriously, it's annoying that female characters are introduced and then explicitly relegated to supporting roles. How is it that Anno got this right 18 fucking years ago and the rest of the industry is still struggling to catch up? Look at Q and compare it to this show: Misato, Asuka, Mari, even fucking Rei Q who doesn't even have a goddamn personality have more of a screen presence than the girls in this show. Why, Japan? Why you do this when humanity literally has less than a year to live? It makes no sense.

Also, space battleship is dumb, but that's a central conceit of the show so whatever. As I said before I'll let the hype drive me along so I can see what the show has to offer.

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

I've not seen Yamato, but what you're describing doesn't sound like that big of a problem. Just because a show doesn't include the ladies very often doesn't mean it's being sexist. Do we have anything else to go on?

I saw the first few episodes of Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.

Also, Mora grows on you. Pleasingly unconventional character design.

I love this art style. (Not just talking about the character designs.) I never see anything that looks like this anymore.

Watched Ghost Hunt again. This show never gets old. I've probably watched it five times already and it hasn't faded at all. Now if they'd only animate the rest of the series. :sigh:

Dude relax, you are at episode 2. I'm not much further but Rei is a good pilot and Blondie's relations seem to be of importance.

YES! You really need to get a setup that can display the scrolling images smoothly to fully appreciate it, though. The one I used didn't have the proper codecs so it was kinda jerky, but once we fixed them it looked quite amazing.

I was thinking the exact same thing while watching! It would be kinda difficult though; there are foreground and background images which move at different rates.

I went into 0083 expecting to hate everyone, and I did.

Yamato 2199 ep 4: This one was better, but the CGI is still damned annoying. Xebec also seems to be in love with fiery explosions in this show, which is disappointing. One thing that puzzles me: if the wave motion gun is derived from the engine that allows FTL travel, why don't the Gamilans have similar weapons?

The focus on Pluto is hilarious. It's a fucking rock in the middle of nowhere, man; using it as a base of operations is just all kinds of dumb.

Okay. Somehow, I've been managing to watch one strange anime after the other, this time around. First Seitokai Yakuindomo, then Danganronpa, then Steins;Gate, now this.

It feels like a second season of Haruhi, it's just so absurd and adorable, at the same time. This is just what I needed.

The show is just so...bizarre. I feel like I'm ten years old, again, playing wizard in my mum's back yard.

I'm really loving the big sis. The Ladle of Death.

Takanashi reminds me a little of this girl I knew in high school. Very cute girl, but she was a lot like Takanashi. Awkward, occult, and just a little insane.

EDIT: THE GERMAN. OH GOD THE GRATUITOUS GERMAN.

Golden Time ep. 5 - Koko's overreactions range from comical like the one she gave Banri after they did the Awa dance to unnecessary like the one she gave Mitsuo about the "previous lives". Why did Linda-senpai cut her hair? She looked so much better with the long flashback piece. And Banri's spirit makes it's debut here, how it will communicate with the conscious amnesiac Banri is yet to be known.

Finished the final 4 eps of Yamato 2199. It's been a while since I've seen something that greatlly exceeded my expectations, so going back to the original won't be easy.

There's a movie based on it coming out next year but I don't expect a sequel series.

Peerless Masterpiece Of Our Era


I think this was third time I saw this. That feel when this perfect piece of moe-SF-mystery-pop-art carries its massive 2h40 minute lenght with more grace than any of the bloated all time classics from Kurosawa or post-war France I watched this summer.

Also, dat feel when best girl keeps on winning. :devil:
