I didn't care for either of them, but then again the old ED was a really tough act to follow. That thing was freakin' god tier.

Tokyo Ghoul - 1

I read what there is of manga and found it decent. If they don't fuck up the adapting it'll be a good watch.

Glasslip Episode 1: What is this smell? Drama? Why do I have the feeling they will barely talk about glass?

Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen Episode 1: Looks like a average action/mecha anime so far. Will folow and see were it goes.

Tokyo Ghoul Episode 1: Good animation? Check! Over the top violence? Check! Naive protagonist? Check! Boy, oh boy, this is going to be fun!

But the new ending had this, and I think it automatically won -o-;

View Original Postrobersora wrote:Hell's
Firstly, this movie reminded me of so many series throughout it's two-hour run, and now I feel the urge to reference them. Let's go.
This is the incredibly entertaining freak child of Hellsing-Hirano’s moody cynism; a gritty drawing style settled somewhere between Furi Kuri’s Manga and Fujiko Minne, and animation-wise I felt I found a few vibes of Yuasa’s Mind Game as well. The trapped in another dimension aspect reminded me of Haibane Renmai, where it was handled a lot better, or Angel Beats, where it was handled a lot worse. But most of the time it felt like a movie version of Kill la Kill. And of course, Utena. But I don't want to insult Utena.

I thought of all those series, but none of them hit the nail, because this movie is all over the place.
While it wasn’t really rushed it felt messy and noncohesive, so IMHO this movie would have needed the breathing room of a one cour series. This movie changes its focus after some time and this is where everything goes down the drain.
The first third seems to set up characters to tell their story and use them to portray the themes but after ~40 Minutes it suddenly switches gears into some semi-philosophical frontal treatment of topics, screaming it’s messages into your face like a Shonen version of the last two NGE Episodes. They spelled everything out for you, no interpretation necessary. Sadly, it doesn't even have anything profound or new to say. While my intelligence surprisingly didn’t feel offended by its silly bluntness of the last half I was annoyed because I had loved to see the movie fold out more like the first third. Also the gear-switch didn’t feel natural at all; suddenly it was strangely over the top after setting everything up nicely. On the surface the movie retained its heart, but everything beneath changed too drastically, which broke my suspension of disbelief. Making me stop caring.

The animation was nice, though. And style, this movie just has it in spades.
SPOILER: Show


It was not bad, but not stellar either. If you have time to spare and like to watch something mildly entertaining with an awesome general style, this will serve you just right. But if you have not seen anything I mentioned in the beginning, start with those instead.


oh I remember this

https://forum.evageeks.org/post/557201/ ... 12/#557201

Yeah, pretty much agree with you. When I watched KlK this was the one that I felt was closest to visuals and wackiness.


Which brings me to Dead Leaves that I saw yesterday. I'm actually surprised how much it made sense? Given the reaction I expected something totally surreal, but what I got was a proto Panty & Stocking/TTGL mashup. (Even the heorine is called Pandy) Or I don't know, maybe I'm just starting to see through Imaishi's chaos. Certainly, the relentless pace, the energetic Kanada style, the crude humor, it's all there. Good fun, nothing more to say.

So Is this a fanservice show for girls? I never got on the Swim Club wagon when it came out. Is it worth my time?

^it's an easy going school life show about 5 guys with some light comedy and good visuals. Yeah the guys are ripped, and it is about swimming so you see them shirtless, but I don't think it's 'gay' by any means. I agree that it's eye candy do the ladies, but despite that, the first season was enjoyable with it's lighthearted story about rivalry, good animation and light humour. If you like easy going school life shows then you should check it out. Personally I believe people who say it's 100% homo are over exaggerating, it's the male body, you see it in the shower every day, so unless you have a problem with that there shouldn't be anything stopping you from watching this anime.

WICKED CITY (1987)____
strong animated supernatural noir film. shows spy and intrigue between the human world and a shadow demon world.
the leads are cops from both worlds working to keep the peace.
elements of john carpenter's the thing, especially in the monster designs and abilities.
controversial for possible misogynistic elements, i have a different take on it.
SPOILERS
SPOILER: Show
the primary female Makie (who is a demon herself) is raped repeatedly in the film, firstly by a giant worm thing (which kills her), and then later is gang raped by fellow demons.
ok, my take on it is that its meant to actually show the resilience and strength of this women, at the end of the film, she is just as strong a person as she was at the beginning. and she herself defeats the final villain and is exactly equal in the peace that is achieved at the end of the film, she AND her male human partner needed to mate to create a new species which will create a new better world, not the glorious mans sperm, BOTH of them specifically where required.
the villain who oversaw her gang rape was stating it was intended more out of intended humiliation than actual harm.
and her being a demon, i dout it would have the same effect as a human woman regardless.
if the writer/director really had a ulterior hatred of women behind all this, i imagine he would have had the effect of the abuse be much more brutal, lasting, turning her helpless, and while yes she did have to be rescued from the gang rape itself, again she totally and completely makes up for it do to her badassry in the finale.
and for the record the male lead is almost castrated at the opening, by a sexual partner he was with under false pretences, so the woman of the film is not the only one who gets sexually threatened/violated. just saying.

very good film if you can stomach it, strong moody tone, good amount of suspense, t&a, great animation.

Still on my list. Nice to read that it's a good one.

I finally checked your suggestions for Slice Of Life stuff and am now watching Minami-ke and two episodes of Hidamari Sketch.
Minami-ke keeps me entertained, but I can't relate to any of it's characters.
Hidamari Sketch... well, I don't know, yet. Seems a bit boring and the character design isn't my taste at all. But somehow it makes me feel... plushy...
I apologize for any grammar mistakes, as I am not a native speaker.

Finishing up Chi's Sweet Home: Chi's New Address. Too adorable~

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 1 was everything I hoped for. Waiting for a new episode every 1st and 3rd Saturday will be a pain, but that glorious HD quality! :drool:

Might not be for a good year or so, assuming Viz does a 26-episode boxset. Seems like Japan will be soon releasing Crystal on 2-episode Blurays as the norm for them.
