Yeah I get most of you arent anime/manga/asian cinema fans and I wont get into it too deeply on here (well maybe with bep and mr. G) but this is pretty fucking stupid and it's shitting on the fans of the original content as 99.9% of hollywood remakes of eastern properties do. All they do is alienate the built in user base and make potential new fans laugh at the absurdity of it all. Either make something new from the millions of scripts flying around Hollywood or get the fuck out with this shit trend of fucking around with stuff people care about.

hollywood doesn't adapt properties because they want to respect them or take them to a nice dinner party - they do it because there is a group of people who are already invested in it and their marketing will be helped by the general awareness of the property. sometimes the films turn out well, and that's great, but the norm is they are ass and you deal by not giving any shits.

It has some really great moments, and the first half, IMO, is fantastic. I mean, the scene where Tetsuo escapes from his cell is so goddamn great. I feel that it kinda falls apart towards the end though.

Tetsuo demolishes a tank with his MIND and rips off a piece from a flag or something to make a CAPE.

The thing about Akira -- as in, the film -- is that it's one awesome action set piece after another. If you ignore the plot and concentrate on the action scenes, it is INSANELY awesome. Even then, I don't see what's so wrong the plot in general.

The manga is considerably better, better paced and better developed, but Akira is a great movie.

It's much like Commando. Commando's plot is distinguished mentally-challenged. But it's so fucking awesome you don't give a shit.

I mean, look what happens in these two hours:

- iconic bike chase
- creepy kids who look like they're 100 years old
- riots
- dude shooting dogs, and getting shot up with a billion bullets
- crazy psychic kid destroys buildings with his MIND
- creepy government experiments
- ANOTHER gang fight
- the assault on the government compound in the sewers, holy shit the MUSIC
- tetsuo's milk/dream nightmare and the awakening of his powers
- tetsuo's rampage on his old friends.
- mass pandomonium and riots.
- tetsuo grabs a fucking cape and nukes a tank, demolishes bridges.
- laser from space.
- kaneda vs tetsuo
- tetsuo morphs into a blob monster
- keneda vs tetsuo AGAIN
- "Kaneda! Kaori's dead! I can't feel her heartbeat!" :bow

Akira OWNS. It is jam-packed with so much COOL SHIT. Whoever tries to dismiss the film because of "story" and "plot" is missing the entire fucking point, and even if they do have a point, this does not discount the utter insanity that occurs in the film.

no no nono onono. that's the kind of thinking that leads to the expendables or that fukin Samus fighting Master Chief video.  vapid action without weight, consequence or context.  it's ejaculating in a bowl of knox jelly in video form.

that's what akira is.  really nice to look at, gorgeous animation and aesthetic, but it's plain dull.  posting clips of the action scenes in 3 minute chunks does more than anything I can say.  it's like loading screens of an incomplete and poorly told story to get to a few scenes of action.  that's not a good movie.  might as well fast forward through most of the movie.

wait that's how I watch speed racer

commando and other 80s action movies are so much more.

i know i'm in the minority, though when it comes to anime and its viewers, other people's opinions mean shit, but i personally love the plot of the film and especially the manga. it is the animation (SEE WHAT I DID THERE) equivalent of blade runner. the story isn't just about the relationship between kaneda and tetseuo, but how the visuals, music, style, mis es scene, and every other little aspect of the film that comes together to create such an amazing world which tells a story itself.

How is Akira dull? How are these scenes poorly told? What's wrong with The Expendables? It was great. Not every action movie has to be like the next one. Certain action films have a certain methodology to their action. Speed is nothing like Aliens, but it's still fantastic. What do you think about martial arts movies? They are, for the most part, the very definition of what you just described. Go watch Ong Bak. Each scene is an excuse to show off Tony Jaa being awesome. Its plot and story are irrelevant, they're just excuses to justify the awesome shit. In comparison, watch Ong Bak 2, where every single piece of action adds something to the whole and is a companion piece to the story.

You really think that in Jackie Chan films, for instance, they really want to tell a story about whatever you're justifying? Fuck no, we want to see Jackie Chan fall off the side of a fucking building and survive the fall. The story is only an excuse for setting up the fall to begin with. That is the beauty of the craft. The same train of thought extends to Akira.

You build up a ridiculous standard for action films for which few action movies will ever be able to meet.

Post by: Himu on December 04, 2011, 01:40:32 AM
Ong Bak is like this. Dialogue is sparse. Every thing is open for an excuse for Tony Jaa to show off his athletic prowess. By your definitions, this means it's not a good movie.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p310Y0tctr8

Ong Bak 2 is like this. Every single action scene in the film, from beginning to end, is by extension, a form of character or plot development. This does not mean that Ong Bak 2 is a good movie because of this fact whereas OB1 isn't.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgX9Bda-MCw

(yes I know this is a scene from Ong Bak 3, which sucks, just trying to supply an example even if it isn't directly "action")

because you can waste those 2 hours on something else

to be honest for a second, there's nothing wrong with having standards even for the movies you mentioned.  I mention The Expendables because I don't think there is any value in it, even as a distraction.  I don't have many other examples because I like most movies I watch.  I think I even said the second half of Transformers 3 was entertaining in the movie thread.  Nothing wrong with bad movies if you get something out of it, but as far as distractions go, there're endless options out there.

in general if I don't watch one of these summer movies with friends at the theater, I'll only check them out based on feedback of friends or people here.  So I appreciate people mentioning which of these movies are worth watching.  also, whether it matters or not, which it probably doesn't, I never said I disliked Akira.  I just think it's a bad movie is all.

tl;dr: The Expendables sucks and I dislike it

edit:  actually, fuck everything I said.  I tried watching Eat, Pray, Love once.

I think there's a lot to like about the story telling, particularly the characters and their relationships:

Kaneda and Tetsuo
Tetsuo's relationship with the rest of the gang
Kaede and Ryu
The scientist and the children
Tetsuo and the children
Kaori and Tetsuo
The general

What part of the story is unappealing? The characters? They're developed quite nicely. The plot? I think that's debatable. I don't know what people want when they complain about Akira's story telling. Do you want more Akira, as in the title character? What exactly is wrong with it? Seems to me most complaints towards Akira's story telling come entirely from expectations.

to be fair to akira, i'm a bit harder on it because i feel it is the direct grandpappy of all of the problems anime had (pre-the recent moe problem, which is not akira's fault and might be even worse than what akira did).  because of akira, anime producers realized it was okay if your story didn't make any fucking sense at all as long as the animation was nice and you made it sufficiently weird that people could philosophize about it.  i blame it for the ghost in the shell movie, which has almost EXACTLY the same problems and strengths, and evangelion, which was extremely influential and extremely idiotic, among a litany of other shitty anime that at least nobody cares about.

to be fair to akira, i'm a bit harder on it because i feel it is the direct grandpappy of all of the problems anime had (pre-the recent moe problem, which is not akira's fault and might be even worse than what akira did).  because of akira, anime producers realized it was okay if your story didn't make any fucking sense at all as long as the animation was nice and you made it sufficiently weird that people could philosophize about it.  i blame it for the ghost in the shell movie, which has almost EXACTLY the same problems and strengths, and evangelion, which was extremely influential and extremely idiotic, among a litany of other shitty anime that at least nobody cares about.

Ghost in the Shell was a really weird movies that didn't make any sense? Err...what?

himuchan, when i first watched this, there *were* no expectations.  this movie wasn't always the great legendary unicorn of anime.  once upon a time, it was just a new movie.  i watched it because "hey this guy on the cover looks kinda cool, let's watch this".

if you can get into it, so be it.  the animation is great and the first half of the movie kicks ass.  the art style is wonderful.  but don't sit there laughing at the goofy shit hollywood is doing to the story with their adaptation, cuz akira never had a story leg to stand on to begin with.

how does not akira not make sense, though? I mean, it make a heck of a lot more sense than Eva. Ghost in the Shell makes tons of sense. It's just BORING.

For the record, I know what Oscar's talking about here. I just don't think Akira is one of them. I'd say what he's talking about is more attributed to Eva more than Akira. Akira is the result of a manga still being made during its development. Evangelion is the product of a dude who was going to kill himself so he sets off to make the most nihilistic, putrid mecha anime ever which goes on to completely change anime. Akira didn't change anime. Evangeion, however, did.

How did it change anime then? Before Akira, anime received most of its revenue from films and toys. The same thing continued after Akira. Evangelion popularized the television format, which created a televised anime boom after it started getting popular and being heralded as the greatest anime tv series of all time. That's without bringing up the pseudo intellectualism Eva brought to the table that became so prominent after its release.

Did Akira help create more mature works of films being created? No, it did not. Golgo 13 is probably far more, if not equally bloody than Akira ever will be and just as controversial in regards to sex. The Professional predates Akira by five years. Even Grave of the Fireflies was released before Akira. How did Akira change anime? It didn't.

Did Akira help create a wave of more cyber punk anime? Sure. But how is that directly attributed to Akira when cyber punk was big during that period to begin with?

Akira is a highly influential anime. However, it didn't change the industry -- literally -- on its head like Evangelion.

Akira probably changed anime for overseas masses by exposing them to anime, but it didn't really change anime. Akira's influence is mostly seen through how it influenced manga, particularly the art, and that's mostly because of this:

If you really think that the other two big 90's "Japanimation" titles,Ghost in the Shell (film) and Ninja Scroll, couldn't have come into being without Akira (film), I don't know know what to tell you, especially when the director Ghost in the Shell did Angel's Egg, a film steeped with Biblical symbolism (which predates Akira's film btw :smug) and later, Patlabor (pre-Akira film :smug). Ghost in the Shell was just business for Mamoru Oshii. Yoshiaki Kawajiri, the director of Ninja Scroll, did Neo-Tokyo (sound familiar? another pre-Akira film anime :smug) and especially Wicked City (another pre-Akira film :smug).

Akira didn't change shit. It's just an anime movie with tremendous backing and funding because the manga was so fucking amazing they wanted everyone to bust a nut while watching it.

uh ok

It didn't change anime as an institution, i'll agree, but Akira is absolutely an important anime film if for nothing else than it really helped open the door for modern Anime fandom in America.  Also, Akira was probably the most technically proficient anime film at that time (my recollection is somewhat hazy. It was certainly the most impressive anime film I had seen up to that point).  You may not consider it a Citizen Kane but you can't dismiss it as Transformers 2.

My overall point is that I think many westerners link Akira to doing many things Akira didn't even innovate or bring to the table, such as the subject matter or the utterly maddening violence that occurs throughout the film. This is understandable, because at a time, Akira was one of the few anime films in circulation in the west, and it was a big hit with the fanbase.

I also think that westerners give too much credit to anime, and little to manga. Akira was originally a manga. Most of its influence is seen through that medium as well. Most anime is based off of manga. Most of the manga authors and artists I follow thank Akira as a main source of inspiration; not the anime film, but the manga.   Akira's film was definitely influential, but I think many western fans overestimate that influence.

So when you're lumping it with stuff like Ghost in the Shell, and saying that Ghost in the Shell was influenced by Akira, I find that entirely false. Because it wasn't. It was its own thing, in a sea of shit doing their own thing.

You think a Evangelion, from what...1996, was what popularized the format?  Stuff like Sailor Moon and Dragonball Z did all that first.  Come on dude...merchandise out the ass and Sailor Moon was so popular that images of the characters could be found inside Tokyo Tower.

Akira is absolutely an important anime film if for nothing else than it really helped open the door for modern Anime fandom in America.

Absolutely, but even then it was still "before its time" when the film came out in the States in '89-'90.  Ghost In The Shell in 1995 is what really attracted attention.

I'll agree that the film's ending isn't as cohesive or satisfying as the manga's. I'll even concede that many characters don't get developed as much as I'd like to. But I think what's there is still pretty fucking awesome, even if it's Akira: Sparknotes Edition.

Not disputing that. I'm mostly talking about more "serious" anime tv shows. You know what I'm talking about. I think it's debatable Cowboy Bebop would not exist without Evangelion. Evangelion helped create a specific audience, and I'm trying to think of any anime tv show, besides Gundam, that penetrated this audience with television series' before Evangelion's time.

Gundam and Macross certainly come to mind first.  But our scope is really limited since for most of us anime starts in the late 80s and early 90s.

You also talk about merchandising.  Eva has nothing on the more-popular kids' series out there in that regard.

True enough.

It seems to me, before Evangelion, stuff with the content that's in that show were mostly left to film and ova's. This is why, for a long period of time, film and ova's were the subset of anime that had the more risque', more adult content. If you wanted to watch an anime about the philosophical shit, you'd stick to a film. But after Evangelion, whew boy. That stuff permeated anime tv like flies against Jinfash's unclean bidet infused asshole.

Akira, the film has been considered a landmark for Japanese animation and filmmaking in general. I don't know why you're arguing this, Himu. Ghost in the Shell would be the other film that achieved this, but several years later, effectively popularizing cyberpunk in both animation and film.

Anecdotally, I find that the Akira film and the Evangelion series are kind of given that "Important" stamp and are often hyped up to the point of setting unrealistic expectations for new viewers.


I temper my praise nowadays, and for some folks I just recommend the manga / the Rebuild films, respectively.

I don't remember when Evangelion came out, but when I was getting into anime in the last 90s, my nerdier friends never recommended it.  I watched it later on and ended up liking it quite a bit.  I'm being hypocritical here because of what I said earlier, but I can appreciate Evangelion's dedication to being up its own ass.

Other than Ghibli films, Akira, and GitS, it was stuff like Jin-Roh, Vampire Hunter D, and Ninja Scrolls.

I think Ninja Scrolls was when I stopped listening to their recommendations.

This is a fair point, and exactly why Akira is influential. But when I say Akira changed anime, I'm talking about how anime is made. Akira is culturally relevant, but I don't think I can say with a straight face that Akira really changed anime. Not in the way Oscar said it did.

I'm like 60-70% through IDEON's story in SRWA3 and I still don't see any connection between IDEON and Eva.  Maybe Anno ripped the ending of Eva from the ending of Ideon, but otherwise they don't seem very similar in the shows themselves.

And, like Himu said, Mamoru Oshii was no stranger to deliberately-paced, high-minded scifi. And Ghost in the Shell was more a product of Blade Runner's influence and the cyperpunk novels of the 80's. Shirow might have been influenced by the Akira manga though, it came out about year before GitS started.

the success of akira changed anime the same way the success of western games has changed the landscape of the videogame industry in japan, e.g. square enix and capcom. it didn't necessarily change the industry as a whole in japan in terms of what producers and studios were puting out, but having just the few number of eyes in the states gazing over towards the direction of japan for something that was so scarce and highly demanded did eventually shift the entire industry.

Fanservice in TV anime didn't really start getting bad until the late 90's, when the harem genre really started picking up steam. But even that's tame compared to where TV anime has gone in the past few years. Most of the series that peddle that sort of thing are terrible to begin with, so it's easy to avoid them, but it's depressing to see how that's basically become the industry's biggest source of money [outside of shounen series and K-On].

Well, anime back in the 80's and 90's wasn't just for anime fans. You can look at the vids in this thread, on this very page and see that. Today's anime is aimed specifically at a subset of anime fans, a very tiny minority.

Plot

In a reign ruled by the Tokugawa shogunate, breasts mean everything. If you have breasts, you are guaranteed wealth and popularity. If you lack them, you are rarely considered "human". Members of the ruling Manyu Clan help raise the future big breasts. Written on a secret scroll possessed by the clan, there is said to be various techniques on how to grow big and beautiful breasts. Chifusa is to be successor of the clan. However, she takes the secret scroll and runs away with it, hoping to fight against the cruel world that the Manyu Clan has created...

Current guilty-pleasure haremuuuuu animu are Boku Wa Tomodachi Ga Sukunai and Maken-Ki.  The latter is just absurd and bizarre in its selective-censoring.  Boku would be a lot better if they ditched the annoying loli-nun and had less fan-service. 

Also started watching Ben-To, which is about people fighting over pre-prepared dinners at supermarkets after they are placed on half-price discount every evening.  WEIRDNESS.

I've seen Patlabor. but it's been quite a while since. And I just want some action set piece stuff. explosions and dust clouds. Evangelion I haven't seen but it seems kinda xenogearsy with people all catching feelings about this and that, suffering from various types of mental illnesses, etc.

edit: I'm not opposed to drama. Planetes is prolly my favorite anime and I watched too much Aria to have some sort of high ground over shows featuring teary eyed animu girls. but I was kinda in the mood for some steel on steel bro wrestling.

Ben-To's one of those shows that features a lot of the tropes I rail about, but it somehow manages to be a fun show inspite of that. It does get to be a bit too much at times, but it's an enjoyable show.

Gundam AGE - From what I've seen, it's pretty good, but Bebpo and some others say that the past few episodes haven't been too great. I'd wait it out for it to reach at least 25 episodes so we know whether or not i'll be worth suggesting.

Gundam Unicorn - Great animation and fights but LOL story and characters. Gundam is better than this, but if you have a hankerin' for UC-era Gundam it's worth watching.

When you're scratching the bottom of the barrel just to find new anime to watch, it's time to move the fuck on, hence:

The art you posted is by the same guy who did Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  That's what caught my eye about Boku, but it turns out that he just did the character designs/promo art and has nothing to do with the story.  I didn't expect much but like the premise, which is about a group of students who have no friends and want to make them...so they start a club for making friends and wackiness ensues.  There really isn't much in the way of stupid fan-service-as-plot going on, but there's more than one episode with the characters in bathing suits and the blonde-haired girl is too damn bouncy.  It's a distraction that I can only think was done to get otaku buying character goods or whatever.

Also started watching Ben-To, which is about people fighting over pre-prepared dinners at supermarkets after they are placed on half-price discount every evening.  WEIRDNESS.

That's the ... entire premise?  :S

Yes!   :lol  So you have all these fighting game-like characters brawling in the supermarket, and then bizarre characters like "The boar," a huge fat lady who pushes her shopping cart into everybody, knocking them out of the way.  Crazy shit.  I've only seen a few episodes and there's been plenty of male support characters, but the intro still makes it look like it could delve into the dreaded HAREMUUUUU.

Thread title sucks. Stop making every thread title like it's GAF.

Sen gets Yō and Hana to join the Half-Priced Food Lovers Club and starts training them in the ways of Bento Brawling. During one of the supermarket visits, they encounter a 'boar', a fat woman who raids all the half-priced bentos before a battle starts. The next day, Yō meets Yū 'Wizard' Kaneshiro, who encourages Yō to stand up to a boar so that the bento battle can properly take place. Yō comes to understand the pride of the 'wolves' and comes out with his first victory, obtaining a bento with an honor seal from the 'God of Discounts'. Yō then returns to the clubroom, where Sen congratulates him on his first victory and shows him a scrapbook showing the victories Yū managed to obtain.

"Anymore?"
   :lol

In other words, it's about social rejects/outcasts.  The main dude looks like a delinquent (he is HAFFU with an English mother), one girl is rich and shunned by the other girls because of her attitude, another is a genius who can't fit in with other kids, his sister is an otaku who cosplay as some magical girl-vampire 24 hours a day, etc.

One huge problem with the character design is that, this being TEH ANIMU, you have all these characters with multi-colored hair and eyes.  The main character is specifically pointed out as "scary-looking" because of his blonde hair and such, even though the rich girl also has blonde hair and blue eyes and is supposed to be 100% Japanese.   :spin

And it is, one of my favorite anime series. It's like Japanese Batman mixed with scifi/noir stories. Things get a bit too wild near the end of season 1 and in season 2, but when it's one it's really ON. Well worth watching. Amazing soundtrack too:

The Big O is great.  Same with the show that inspired it GIANT ROBO

Gundam Unicorn is probably not a bad place for people to get into gundam when it actually finishes.  It's flashy, looks great, has lots of mecha battles, great music, and is short and easy to follow (although some of the UC connections will be lost if you haven't seen previous UC Gundams).  But the finale of Unicorn is still a year or two off if they really do the final volume as a feature length film and we have to wait for the home release of it.

I have this feeling that Big O would have been better if it wasn't a giant robot anime and instead the gritty, noir detective anime it tries to be most of the time. The music, for the most part, fits that better than giant robot fighting.

Eeeh the majority of everything is fucking terrible. Anime is exciting when you first discover it because it's a different pile of cliches than the ones you're used to. (though yeah contemporary animu is extra shitty) There's the occaisonal cerebral thing(like everything Satoshi Kon's made) but mostly it's just cool looking pap.

I do kind of agree with you there, but a gritty, noir detective anime is a much harder sell than a gritty, noir detective anime with GIANT ROBOTS SMASHING STUFF AND LASERS. Though a Monster series did get made, so what do I know? Anyway, the robot fights ARE pretty cool, as is the music that's more fitting for giant robot fights.

Oh, and this is probably my favorite episode of The Big O:

It's the same show made like 52 times,
Sounds like shounen.

Speaking of anime of that ilk, Ergo Proxy imo is one of the biggest wastes of time in amine. It's "deep" and "edgy" content feels really forced and tacked on.

Come at me bros and bras.

The Big O is only 26 episodes [half of which didn't come out until several years later] and it's certainly not the same thing over and over.

It's "deep" and "edgy" content feels really forced and tacked on.

What does this mean exactly? Nothing I saw in Ergo Proxy screamed "edgy" to me, it wasn't like they were tossing around explicit sex and violence or trying to push some kind of radical storyline. It was mostly, through the middle of the show, a series of just really weird, random stuff [like the great game show episode].

It was the main characters travelling through a twisted, surreal parody of the real world, ruled over by lonely godlings with delusions of greatness, which was at least as interesting as what most cyberpunk works go for.

Ergo Proxy goes a different route, showing a decayed world that has fractured into isolated zones, each controlled by a powerful being which imparts its own quirks and concepts into their zone. I was a bit disappointed that the show went away from where it seemed to be going in the first 5-6 episodes, but the middle half was still interesting in its own right.

I'll never like it, it lost focus too much imo. Hey I didn't even mind when Samurai Champloo did it, nor Casshern sins, nor michiko to hatchin . In fact I loved those. Proxy just seemed really artificially "deep" to me. It's like the director wanted to put some random arbitrary hidden subtext in ever scene and none of it worked, nor was it ever relevant.

I know I'm not being terribly clear vocalizing how I feel about it, but best I can say is it felt very manufactured and not like a natural story.

For me Ergo Proxy was a show with great atmosphere, interesting characters, and a collection of moments with those characters that are imo fairly meaningful even if a larger theme or plot isn't doing its job to keep things tied together.

I listen to the track that appeals to me most and 9 times out of 10 that's the Japanese track. I'm not going to get into some huge argument about which is better or why because I honestly don't care what other people prefer.

Post by: brob on December 07, 2011, 03:05:46 PM
what I like about the original japanese language track is that I don't understand it. English voice work often highlights the flaws of the writing and if the voice actors are bad it detracts from my enjoyment.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Himu on December 07, 2011, 03:12:12 PM
dubs i like:

most anime feature films dubbed in english
most ova's
stuff like cowboy bebop, gundam, are pretty good in English.

I mean, I watch subbed anime, but I just don't see how one is better than the other and most of the time the Japanese voice track has weird shit.

I think the one exception I can think of is One Piece. One Piece in Japanese is amazing because the voice work is so fucking good. The funi dub of One Piece is great, though.

Anyone checked out Towa no Quon yet?  I didn't even realize it had come out on video yet, but apparently ep1-3 are (I think it's going to be 5 parts?).

Towa no Quon is the latest big budget Bones Studio B production.  Studio B did Cowboy Bebop movie (2001) -> Scrapped Princess (2003) -> Eureka Seven (2005-2006) -> Xam'd (2008-2009) -> Towa no Quon (2011-2012); they're the major animation studio in Bones.

Towa no Quon is a 5 part theatrically released OAV series similar to how Kara no Kyokai (Garden of Sinners) was released in theaters and Break Blade as well.


It's an action thingy like all their stuff.  And sadly no mecha, but more like sentai and mutants and stuff.  Character designs are by the Bebop/Wolfs Rain/Dark Than Black guy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSa7fOUYuLQ
Skip to the 4min mark for action scene with Akira arm

I haven't heard any impressions yet and I haven't had the time to check it out (might just wait until all 5 eps are out to watch at once like Break Blade).  All I know is that it bombed in sales like everything coming out of Bones for the last 5 years since the original FMA.  I heard the first OAV blu-ray sold like 700 copies total. 

Anyone seen it?

I can see why dubs could be bad, but I dunno, it's not limited to white people speaking.  Like with Hunter X Hunter, there is an entirely new cast for the new anime, and Hisoka seem different character because of the new voice actor.  So yeah.  I prefer the FLCL dub because of how perfect the cast is and that's my favorite anime.

Quote
Haruhi Suzumiya is the general name for a series of light novels written by Nagaru Tanigawa and illustrated by Noizi Ito which were subsequently adapted into other media. The story follows the title character Haruhi Suzumiya, a high school girl who can unconsciously change reality, and her strange antics with her school club, the SOS Brigade, which she founded to investigate mysterious events. Haruhi forcibly drafts her cynical classmate Kyon, who narrates the series, and similarly recruits three additional members into her club: the silent bibliophile Yuki Nagato, the shy and timid Mikuru Asahina, and the friendly transfer student Itsuki Koizumi. These members soon reveal themselves to Kyon as the extraordinary characters Haruhi is seeking, sent by their various organizations to observe her and hold her reality warping powers in check by maintaining the illusion of a normal life.

Well, it was pre season 2, at least. I zoned out after reading about what happened with that mess, so I might have missed where the fan base started turning away from it.

I always kind of associated Haruhi with the rise of MOE.  Never heard that term being mentioned until it came around.

I associate it more with Lucky Star, since the show actually threw the term around quite a bit.

The movie is legitmately great, the series is pretty good [except for the second season where KyoAni poops the bed], but it's held up among the community as some pinnacle of modern storytelling, which it isn't.

 :lol Who is saying this?

It's best to not watch the second season. Watch season one only if you're interested

Moe came along before Haruhi. Haruhi and stuff like K-ON was just a convenient point of convergence as it has all of it's moe bases covered and was popular. It's actually a very enjoyable series if you ignore the fans.

Haruhi was moe filth at its core, only sometimes it put that moe filth in decent stories.   

It's not even like Working (season 1 at least), which's entire purpose is to mock dumb moe conventions.  Genshiken too but since that's an anime/manga about anime/manga nerds, it's more self aware and comments on moe, than really using moe.

I just really don't see it. K-On is moe to the core, without a doubt. It's slice of life that exists for little reason other than moe. Haruhi actually does things with its characters, gives them situations to deal with and actual development of personality [to some extent]. It does play to its audience at times, but that's cetainly not what the entire show is about.

The punchy punch girl in Working annoys me, but I really like the series. Bakemonogatari and Durarara had some moe in it, but fuck were those brilliant.

Linkz you're being too harsh on Haruhi. I feel people hate it cause it helped popularize moe not so much for what it is, a ditzy stupid supernatural school adventure.

If you want to talk pure moe trash look no further than Toradora.

I said it put them in decent stories! most anime isn't even decent.  And while I liked it, and first season of K-on, actually, I'm comfortable enough calling them what they are without lowering my opinion.  Haruhi plays with the trope more, in that there is a history behind why a character is tsundere and sometimes acts self-aware, but that doesn't absolve it.  The only defense I'd accept is "it's not moe, but it extensively uses moe tropes;" effectively the same thing 95% of the time.

Moe, to me, is a series with few [if any] male characters, huge emphasis on girl-friendship, lack of drama or negative emotions. Everything played as absolutely safe as possible, with nothing in the story that forces the characters give up anything or make any sacrifices or even CHANGE. It panders to the basement-dwelling nerdlings desire to "protect" innocence, cuteness, and purity. I just don't see how Haruhi can possible fit into the mold.

"Moe" has been around way longer than any of that stuff, but I don't recall it being at the forefront until Haruhi came along.

I couldn't watch Lucky Star.  It was like Azumanga Daioh without the charm and slice-of-life humor.

Moe has to do more with the female character's personalities/design....it's not a genre.  A lot of that harem crap is certainly moe though...if not all of it. 

What just amazes me is how harem comics n' shows get recycled on a yearly basis, and nobody seems to notice or care that's it the same old shit over and over again.  HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT GUY IS SURROUNDED BY GIRLS BUT DOESN'T WANT TO GO AFTER THEM THEY GO AFTER HIM INSTEAD AND HE DOES NOTHING AND OH WACKY CHARACTERS TOO AND OH BEACH EPISODE AND OH HOT SPRINGS EPISODE NOTHING HAPPENS IN THE END ~FIN~

Moe has to do more with the bubbly-bouncy-energetic girl personalities.

That's certainly part of it, but I don't think that alone really ecapsulates the entire definition.

And I don't really think Haruhi [the character] can really be labeled "tsundere", she's more like...totally self-absorbed with minimal awareness beyond her own pursuits.

Is Aria moe? my favorite character was the cat with the hat.

It's a fine line between moe and plain slice-of-life, but Aria makes it by because it doesn't come across as pandering.

I'll never understand all those "hilarious" and "cute" anime shit. I'm in it for the violence and superpowered shit.

You think I'm joking? My main reason for watching any anime was the badass fights, Dragonball Z just happened to be badass all around.

But Dragonball has "hilarious" and "cute" shit too...and lots of bizarro-wacky character designs and names!

I enjoyed Dragonball but have never been able to get into any similar long-running action series.  Everything just ends up reminding me of Dragonball or just drags on and on and gets boring as shit.

HxH is amazing when Togashi isnt being a hideous fucking troll. IMO Yu Yu Hakusho and HxH will always be figthing for top shounen of all time and creation. I have a soft spot for Getbackers too.

Also this thread could use some Vagabond kill scenes and Gantz madness

How many chapters?

There's quite a lot and there's multiple series.  Battle Angel is nine volumes long, then there's the very small Ashen Victor, followed by Last Order, which retcons the end of Battle Angel and keeps it going.  I think it's around 15-16 volumes long now; still on-going.

@General topic of the moment.
God I love 80's and 90's anime, captain tsubasa, the harlocks, the space battleships, the spriggans, the ghosts in the shell, the yu yu hakusho, the black jacks and such. But to pretend that a fat heap of shit dint come out around these shows is revisionist history and nostalgia glasses at it's peak. You guys most likely weren't exposed to the shit that came out as less shows traveled west during this period.

With the advent of the internet you now just get to see how much mind numbing crap comes out as well. It's always been this way, always. The amount of great shows in the 2000's are on par, if not more than the 80's/90's. The Black Lagoons, Bakemonogatari's, FLCL's, Ghost in the Shell SAC, Girl who leaped through time, Ghibli stuff, Sword of the Stranger, durarara!, Baccano, xxxHolic,  Garden of Sinners and what have you.

I'm happy to go down memory lane at any time, as I said I love the anime of that period, but let's not pretend modern anime is in any way inferior.

The 00's were actually a great time for anime, AT FIRST. Things went south hard aroung 2006, the American anime industry started tanking and the moe/harem/fanservice fad hit in the Japan like a 20-ton whale dropped from the tip of the Empire State Building. The last few years of the 00's were pretty dreadful, lots of really horrible shows and only a few that were worth watching. I've seen some improvement over the past year or so, but it's still a far cry from the heady days of 90's TV anime and 80's OVAs/Movies.

But I'm not above recommending newer shows, in fact I just recommended several in an earlier post.

i'm just not used to seeing such heavy handed moderation on the bore

i should probably be quiet though so that lyte edge doesn't threaten me with a shiv

Let's just get this over with:

-The anime thread and other long-running threads have been restarted before.  This isn't "heavy-handed moderation."
-This thread became the new anime thread...I just renamed it.
-No one is being stopped from making a new Akira movie thread if they want to.
-Why is this such a big deal?  It seems like people who ignored the previous thread are actually noticing this one now, too.   :lol
-None of you people bitching actively-participated in the old thread anyway.
-Spencer is, at this point, just looking to see how far he can go before he gets himself banned.   :P

The 00's were actually a great time for anime, AT FIRST. Things went south hard aroung 2006, the American anime industry started tanking and the moe/harem/fanservice fad hit in the Japan like a 20-ton whale dropped from the tip of the Empire State Building. The last few years of the 00's were pretty dreadful, lots of really horrible shows and only a few that were worth watching. I've seen some improvement over the past year or so, but it's still a far cry from the heady days of 90's TV anime and 80's OVAs/Movies.

But I'm not above recommending newer shows, in fact I just recommended several in an earlier post.

Okay, I'm curious about this, because I haven't really watched much anime. I've seen maybe a dozen movies, plus most of the Miyazaki stuff.

So in the 80s you had stuff like the original Vampire Hunter D, right? And the 90s would have had DBZ, Gundam and whatnot?

What do all the terms mean? I'm guessing harem = one male character, lots of females? And moe = pedo trash? Why did the anime studios stop catering to people who want to watch giant robots blowing shit up in favor of the dudes who want to wank to 6 year olds?

90's had just as surreal shit as the 80's. The best of the 80's were in ova's and film. That's where anime mostly blossomed and you can find the best of the craft in that decade. The best of the 90's were mostly on tv, though ova's and films were still prominent and still quality.

Gundam was popularized in the 70's/80's.

They thought moe would mean more money, in an appeal to target a specific market. but a concentration of any market always means less sales, so they've made it more of a niche than it was before. think of it like how comic books are with super hero comics. same shit, different type of audience, but similar frustrations.

Most of the problems we're talking about are mostly in regards to anime on television. ova's and movies are still high quality and just as diverse as in the past. manga is still kickn' and just as awesome as in the past. the problems we're discussing are mostly relegated to televised anime productions.

Well, I mean they've been selling anime body pillows since the dawn of weeabo. I'm sure it was a sales driven trend.. Which is disturbing. I think I need to get my hands on some of this 80s-90s animu you guys keep praising.

they thought (and still think) that the minority are what drives sales. and they do, in some way, mostly in the form of merch (like those pillows you mentioned). it doesn't help that in japan there are currently more single people than ones who are with a partner. i see the rise of the moe trend to be a completely related to such statistics.

Of course, the one outlier in all of this is One Piece.

37 million copies of the manga have been sold.

Just this year.

And it is a farcry from moe, and in actuality the spiritual successor to Dragon Ball, both in terms of sales and spirit.

Innocence was the first thing I'd seen which looked like it was basing its designs on current Shirow stylings. Many of the mech or environmental designs looked they could have been straight out of one of that era's art books or calendars.

SAC is one of the greatest anime television series of all time. GitS (first film) isn't approaching it in terms of quality. I think SAC hits the best highs of what GitS stands for, without coming off nearly as pretentious as GitS does. Then again, I haven't seen GitS since I was a teenager, but boy howdy did it put me to sleep. SAC is one of the few anime tv shows I'd ALMOST put on par with Cowboy Bebop.

How many episodes is the Ghost In The Shell tv show?

Oh and Lyte I got the Battle angel manga, will watch the movie before reading it.

The movie is a condensed version of the first two main stories.  I'd read the first few volumes of the manga first, and if you like it, watch the movie.

I'm almost done with Last Order (up to the current chapter).  It is CRAZY-LONG and has tons and tons of flashback/background stuff on multiple characters, but it's been a really fun read.

The same author also did a series called "Aqua Knight" that I'd recommend, although it is unfinished and "ends" abruptly.

For SAC, are the first and second season the same antagonist? I've caught a few episodes while it ran on adult swim years ago. I thought the antagonist who quoted catcher in the rye made a super interesting plotline.

That's the first season. The second season has a different antagonist.

I miss the period in the early 00s when I first got decent speed broadband and was downloading everything under the sun because it was all new to me. I can't even remember half the shit I downloaded and never watched. Then everything released here locally was either robots or fighting or harem and I lost interest.

I'm completely lost on what's decent these days. I wouldn't mind picking up a new series but my time is limited. I think the last thing I started to watch was Welcome to the NHK? Oh there was also Genshiken, and I never even knew there was a second series

I think Try was kind of weak personally since at the end of Next they established the crew as virtually unstoppable in the face of Gods and thus pretty much nothing was a threat to them, but with Revo it was just nice to see the original cast together and destroying everything in their path again since it'd been a while.  8)

I don't care that much, plus I've already got Netflix on the PS3.

Actually, my TV might be able to play the files directly. It's a Sony Bravia, however, so it's probably just as ass backwards with MKV files.

they did slayers on tv when i was a little kid here and i became a super fan,i even own the manga's

i tried watching it recently again (well a bunch of years ago i guess?) and the jokes are still lot of fun but man as a kid i never realized how much it can drags around,it kinda suffers from "we need at least 3 episodes to kill a villain" curse

still the best animu scene evah

"Some" is the problem here.  I bought and hacked an Apple TV2 for XBMC, but it generally can't play any anime .MKVs...which is the format everything is usually released in.  -_- 

XBMC also started having all these buffering issues after an update some months back, so I end up watching compatible files on my PS3 via a flash drive or just hooking my laptop up to my TV.

The funny thing is that Air Video streams .MKV files to my iPhone GREAT and I can even then stream from the phone to the Apple TV, but stuff loads too slowly that way.

It's not so much about Kodai dying but everyone and their mother suiciding themselves that became stupid, when Saito went out like a boss I was going to shed a manly tear but then oh snap everyone else dies as well :( They should have left it as maybe Saito and Kodai having that moment but for fucks sake how can I care about anyones death when they all have silly me too suicidal streaks

I think I have that -edited- and the first Mezzo on DVD somewhere.  Never saw them.  The first Overfiend was fucking hilarious.  Total LMAO-fest and I fail to see how the hell people fapped to tentacle-reepu.  If you want to see worse (in the LOL-sense), check out the LIVE-ACTION versions of that stuff.   :lol

Hentai is usually badly-drawn sex with lack of plot.  Ecchi stuff tends to be more...creative?  I guess.  Most of the harem shit recycles the same stuff over and over again too.

I watched some of Sora No Otoshimono and it struck me as a perverted Ah My Goddess, only the main angel-chick has zero personality and is like a robot.

Okay, so I gotta know, what is it with Japan and their love for Snidely Whiplash-esque villains? Seriously, I can't remember the last time I saw an anime with a villain that didn't slide very neatly into every aspect of that trope. Just once I'd like a villain that isn't constantly smirking, as arrogant as a room full of politicians, and evil just because.

I feel like I've made this post several times before...

@Trent if you're going to be buying ecchi, you might as well say fuck it and go whole hog hentai. Just how I feel about it.
I just work in a vidya store. :shh Not surprising to se Funi putting out more shit like that though since apparently Sekirei sold out at retail first shipment. The market gets what it wants/deserves.  :(

Nowadays any one that pays for porn is kind of a distinguished mentally-challenged fellow with the amount of stuff readily available for free imo.

Last stuff I bought was Ghibli and monogatari. Looking out for Natsume specials and waiting for Black Lagoon - Roberta's Blood Trail to be done. Also before that bought Nodame Cantabile, Black Jack (which is playing again this season) Durarara.

So they're making a sequel to Eureka 7...as a manga :\
That show is shit as all creation. I cant understand why people would watch/read this.

Post by: Momo on December 22, 2011, 02:01:02 PM
You have a pretty good list there. Gurren Lagann needs to get out though and E7 is far too emo and cruddy. Surprised at no Wolfs Rain nor GitS. 

In no order for me :
Gits SAC
Natsume
xxxHolic
Durarara!
Bakemonogatari
Black Lagoon
Yugo the Negotiator
Samurai Champloo
FLCL
Beck
Planetes
Real Drive
Full Metal Panic

TV series only

EDIT: shitty spelling

Post by: Bebpo on December 22, 2011, 02:04:06 PM
Wolfs Rain is pretty bad.  It's great looking and sounding, but the story was almost FFXIII toriyama bad.  One of my least favorite Bones though I recognize it for the artistic merit.

SAC & 2nd Gig are awesome.  Should go somewhere on that. 


Gurren should be somewhere in a top10-20 because the first half is the best Super Robot show since Giant Robo.  Well directed, stylish, great comedy and action.  The 2nd half is weak, but the first half is strong enough to get it on a list.

And E7 is amazing, only weakness is that they cut their budget because the show was bombing so ep28-the last 3-4 eps are really cheap looking.  E7 has such a good story, original cast, great direction, great art & music; just amazingly epic show that's rarely made.

I think my hang-up with buying TV series is that apart from very, very, very, very, VERY few of them, I'd never watch them more than once.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Momo on December 22, 2011, 02:09:52 PM
Yeah Wolfs Rain is crud, the OSt is all it had going for it for me. I'm just surprised as most people I know fondle it's penis hard.

Agreed, it's in my list :o

I disagree, the second half is shit tastically bad on a Death Note level, it's like giving betheshda developer of the year with all it's bugs. That being said I wasn't a fan of the first part either, but it was objectively fun. I like real mecha shows not wanna be comedies :/

E7 is way too emo and tries to be "deep" although there is no real depth. It gives me that same try hard impression as Ergo Proxy.

I think my hang-up with buying TV series is that apart from very, very, very, very, VERY few of them, I'd never watch them more than once.
Most of my stuff except for the Ghibli is still in it's wrapping really. I can't really explain to you why I buy it, I just like having nice things.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Bebpo on December 22, 2011, 02:23:26 PM
I think E7 does have a lot of depth and it's held up well on rewatches.  At its core the series is about a group of well-developed characters who go through realistic human drama situations and it's also a great coming of age romance tale.  It's also an interesting sci-fi story. 

I don't find the show emo, but whatever.  Renton gets treated like shit early on and freaks out when he finds out he's killing people, so his "emo"ness makes sense.  Eureka is timid but has her reasons.  Holland has his issues for being an abusive pseudo-father.

It's got a great cast and is full of amazing scenes.  Also has some of my favorite voice acting performances.

Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Momo on December 22, 2011, 02:30:36 PM
I have to disagree. Renton and Holland especially are stubborn, spoilt characters that doesnt deal with their issues and let's it linger all through the show just to have their moment of redemption/forgiveness later. I agree this is real and human, it's just boring as fuck and about as deep as a puddle. It's clear and obvious emotional reactions. a character like Yuuko (xxholic), Natsume, Rock + Revy have far more emotional complexity.

I used to feel that way too.  Then I moved a few times and found out what a pain in the ass hauling around movies and video games was.  Plus now they take up space in two rooms and I really don't even care about 90% of that stuff anymore.  I haven't lost interest, but I'd prefer to have everything digitally, or when it comes to gaming, just stick with the current systems.  I can't remember the last time I played PS1, PS2, GC, etc.

Faster paced, shorter, less explanation and more actiony.

Both seasons have their ups and down but if you didn't like S1 ending, wait till you see S2.

But after that you watch the awesome 4 OVA episodes and you will never remember that ending.

Then you read the awefucksome manga and you will be demanding season 3 every day.

This has potential to be good.  Especially with the death of mecha tv anime over the last 5 years.  Aquarion & new E7 are about it with Unicorn and Break Blade for OAV/Movies.  There's also that AGE thing but meh.

I do not want anything that requires that I enjoy anime tropes.

I like:
Akira film
Ghost in the Shell film
Most Miyazaki and Ghibli films
Wings of Honnemaise
Grave of the Fireflies
Kon's stuff
Cowboy Bebop
and I sort of liked Fantastic Children

What I DISLIKE:
Ghost in the Shell series, SAC and the ilk
Gurran Lagaan
Anything with squeaky girl voices
Anything with psychophilobabble

I'd prefer drama. I am ok with some comedy. I watched flcl and it was okay.

Does anyone really like Grave of the Fireflies?

No, hold on, it's obviously a great film but it's so depressing I can't say I like it. I appreciate it, but it's so damn soul crushing
It didnt depress me actually. I just felt incalculable amounts of rage Seita for being a jackass. That overwhelmed the sadness. I can't say I "like" the movie, as you say it's soul crushing, but the mere fact that it made me and intended to make me have emotional reactions means it succeeded.

Perfect Blue is also soul crushing in many ways, but I love it. This reminds me I need to watch the two live action adaptations of Grave.

It's decent fun if you're a big DMC fan.  Focuses on a few select chapters and mainly the Jack Ill Dark story.  Gene Simmons is Jack.   :lol  The actor who plays Negishi/Krauser does a good job at playing both roles convincingly.

Question:  Did you like SEED?  Depending on how you felt about SEED makes it easier to recommend the next Gundam. 

Also the movies are just recap movies of the TV show.  No point in watching.  They're good for years down the line when you want to rewatch the series but don't want to spend the time to watch 50eps.

G Gundam

This is not a really good early Gundam.  Same with Turn A or any of the slower paced ones.  They're good when you're into Gundam and don't care about pacing.  Same applies to ZZ and X and a whole lot of them!

The OVA was ridiculously depressing, going out of it way to be as depressing as possible. As in, unrealistically depressing.

And Top Gun is the opposite of depressing, so it's not the best comparison.

Probably because I'm leaving Japan, suddenly I am experiencing a mild resurgence in anime interest. Now that I know it's going away, I want it.

Unfortunately, I started by trying to watch Wonderful Days, which sucked balls. I put my review of it in the "movies you've seen recently" thread.

For now, crisis averted: my interest in anime is abated for another week. I guess I'll just watch stuff on Hulu once I am back in the USA, as a tribute to irony.

I actually kinda of liked Wonderful Days. Of course, I haven't seen it in more than seven years, so I probably just thought the animation was cool or something. And it was an imported DVD, so it had that added element of making me feel like I was watching some amazing, obscure movie. I probably watched the trailer for it at least 20 times.

Fairy Tail
I know the one piecers dont like it so much but I like both shows. Its paced incredibly well and having read the manga and watched the subs well into the series I felt I should pony up some fucking money.
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51Oep1EWhZL._SL500_AA300_.jpg)

The Fairy Tail fights are dope to watch. Shame TV Tokyo went on a rampage on YouTube removing content. I like to re-watch Natsu vs Jellal (still available, plus a couple other fights)

From what I saw of One Piece fights, Fairy Tail takes a steamer on it. I'm not interested in story and characters, I want to see some badass moves and ass beatings.

One Piece is all about story. That's what separates it from other shounen crap where every fight is just a fight because we need a fight because people like fights. In One Piece, fights are mostly used for plot extension and character development on top of being fights. Comparing One Piece to other shounen is silly sense it has completely different goals; One Piece is a pre-planned story that continuously unwraps as you go through it, other shounen like Naruto or Fairy Tail are made up on the fly to appeal to people who just want action. If you want action, don't read or watch One Piece, though it has action-packed moments, it is not about the fights and never has been.

It was that trailer that I remembered from way back when, and the only reason I picked it up instead of a million more recent things, or much, much older ones. It was pretty impressive, IIRC. Then again, The Lost Boys had a pretty epic trailer, and wasn't very good.

Didn't funimation get pretty much all of their crap tho?

Funimation bought some of their licences in 2008, but everything that was left after that [including licences, production, The Anime Network, and staff] were picked up by Sentai Filmworks and its various arms in 2009:

Based on that interview with Iyadoni, the only way to get Unicorn vol. 5 and 6 is to import them from Japan (Amazon JP gets a name drop).

Once again, the typical disconnect between Japanese corporate expectations and American market reality.

Now, instead of admitting to their own folly, they'd rather close up shop and take their ball home before they lower their prices.

who actually releases anime at reasonable prices!

Man, if they cancel the 2nd half of Star Driver I'm going to be REALLY pissed off.  Don't want to own half a series.  Glad I picked up Xam'd from Rightstuf the other week.

Guess I'm never buying Unicorn unless they sell all Gundam licenses to funimation (which would actually be AWESOME because I'm sure they'd release every gundam in the US at reasonable pricing).

Ok, did some searching and luckily SD vol.2 makes the cutoff of pre-February BV releases.  Crazy they are releasing it so soon after the first half.  Put in a pre-order for it for $30 at Rightstuf and ordered Escaflowne Movie from there since Amazon is sold out.

Grabbed Darker Than Black S2+OAV set from Amazon as well just because I don't trust anime in the US at this point.  The market is going to be gone any day now.  At least I can get Eva 3.33 from HK if Funi tanks.

Funimation recently went private again [breaking away from Navarre] after Gen Fukunaga brought in some rich sugar daddies to put up some big money. No idea what they're profits look like, but they did recently partner with Nico Nico Douga for increased streaming and home video licencing.

there's a lot of shitty movies out there, doesn't mean they should stop releasing movies.


I don't even understand your argument.  What is the alternative, the current anime market where 95% of shows are never brought over and released in english?  Where the only way to watch anime anymore is to pirate it?

Hulu itself has like 500 billion anime series. Hell, look at funi's online site. Hulu has every localized episode of One Piece for example, and I get to watch One Piece one hour after it airs in Japan, FOR FREE, localized in English, and LEGALLY.

The REAL TRUF here is that I'd buy some anime IF:

1. What I wanted came out here.
2. What I wanted came out here on blu-ray.
3. It was priced decently.

I'm okay with there being less and less stuff that suits me these days.  I got into anime when I was *11*.  I'm 30 now.  I can accept that I'm no longer part of the target audience.  Despite that, some stuff I like still comes out, and there's plenty of great comics out there.  So whatever.

I only buy stuff I know I'd rewatch (goes for all movies/TV series), which isn't much.  I have a lot of anime from the 90s and early 2000s, but that's only because I got it dirt cheap.  Back then I'd also buy stuff because there wasn't a way to watch it on TV or online first.

What happens when you can't buy your "top 20 shit" because they don't release it in the US?  And why can't you accept that this is more important than YOU and that some people like to own anime in English.  You are saying the same thing as "why release dvds/blurays of hollywood movies?  I only own a few and don't care if they went netflix streaming only".

There's a reason why people prefer to watch something on a bluray than watching it on netflix streaming or hulu plus.  Quality is still way better on a disc.

I'm not talking about fansubs! 

I support fansubs ;)  Hell, I used to sub stuff myself.  I'm saying people pirate because they have to, in order to get high quality versions of the shows.  At least when BDs are released in the states it gives a legal method to do the same thing and support the creators.  When BDs stop coming over, you're left with the best quality option being the bootlegs, which is a sucky outcome.

Lord Illpulatso!!!!!

There is some element of truth to what you say MAF. Outside of anime message boards and anime communities the more casual watchers would likely go for a dub. The thing is though anime/manga outside of japan doesnt have a large casual following like video games. I feel the majority of buyers are exposed to anime information in the form of friends/boards/communities in some form or another.

I can handle a little bit of animu. For example I really enjoyed watching the first run FMA and they throw in silly anime shit on that, but then shit gets real when it came to the actual plotline.

Planetes has some silly from time to time, but not nearly as much as FMA. I think you'll really enjoy it.

I got my K-On! BDs since they're going OOP.  I didn't realize they were like 3eps each.  It had been a while since I bought vol.1/2 and for some reason I thought vol.1/2 = S1, vol.3/4 = S2 and thus the entire show was brought over.  But nope, I just realized I paid like $120 for one 14ep season.  In comparison I also get Darker than Black 13ep S2 + Entire 4ep OAV for...$26.

Conclusion = fuck Bandai USA.  Good riddance. 

I don't even understand K-On! pricing.  Star Driver is 13eps per volume for $40-50.  They are both TV anime.  SD pricing is not cheap, but it's reasonable in light of anime being higher price.  K-On! is straight up Japanese pricing gouging.  At least Gundam Unicorn is an OAV.

I'm more concerned that the 2nd season of K-on is never going to come over now.  Here I thought it already had!  Dammit, I hate owning incomplete shows.  Not that the 2nd season is worth owning outside the last 4-5 eps, but the multiple endings were nice.

The last 6 eps of Season 2 has some really great episodes in it.  Best part of the season for sure.  So if you're already that far you might as well finish it eventually.  I wish I could find the Cromartie MAN TEARS comic about the finale from the gaf thread when it aired.

Bodacious Space Pirates [Moretsu Pirates] - Episode 1

The name conjures up images of something utterly abysmal and depressing, which is unfortunate because that's not what the show is like at all. Rather than drawing on the current trends in anime [moe slice of life and fan service escalation], it actually draws more from anime during the 90's [On ANN it was likened to Martian Successor Nadesico, which I think is a good comparison especially considering they share the same director]. The story is that a teenage girl suddenly finds out that her father was a [legal] space pirate and that's he's recently died, leaving the girl as the sole inheritor of his pirate ship. Overall, it's a fine productions, with decent animation [even if nothing really happens], detailed backgrounds, and an art style that doesn't try to do too much. Nothing much happens in the first episode, just setup for the rest of the series. The next few episodes should give a good idea of where the show's going, but for now it looks to promise lots of lighthearted space adventure that won't make you feel depressed for having watched it.

Nisemonogatari kind of sucked.  It suffers from the same problems as the Kurenai OAVs and lots of sequels.  Basically it's a sequel just because, even though everything was concluded in the original and there was no need for a sequel.  Ep1 was just fanservice "oh remember these characters?" and just fillerish in general and not as well written, directed, and the music is worse.

The movie should actually be pretty good since there's still the prequel story to tell and that has a point.  But a sequel?  There's nothing to care about.  What kind of plot can they even do at this point without feeling contrived and lame. 

Eh, will keep watching, but don't have much faith in it now.  Would rather they just continued the plot of the original where he meets a new girl each arc and has to solve her supernatural short story.  It wouldn't be very creative, and would be more of the same, but it'd still be better than what nisemonogatari looks to be about.


Hoping Eureka 7 AO isn't going to suffer from this.  At least since it's hundreds of years after E7 it can't be "hey look at these characters hanging out!"

Ok, Aquarion Evol was pretty good!  Looks like we may have the first enjoyable mecha series since Gundam OO S1.  It seems worse than Aquarion in every way, but that's expected since anime isn't as good anymore.  But!  It's still fun and has that Aquarion feel.  You can tell the plot is going to be really lolz as they try to write in a sequel to a story that doesn't make a sequel the easiest thing to write, but at least they're trying.  Mecha design is alright.  Attacks are decent so far.

Will be watching this.

Is in the show in some form. Personally I hope it's actually the same guy 12,000 years later and not his great-great-great-12,000-year-grandson/reincarnation/clone.  Been a while since I watched Aquarion but wasn't he an immortal guy or something.  I should rewatch the final ep of Aquarion to refresh.

You know, suddenly it becomes very apparent why the anime threads there are 100% junk...the posters are like twelve and started watching anime in 2009 and have no frame of reference for growing up on awesome 90s anime.  Instead they grew up on semi-awful moe digital shit.  Bleh.

Post by: Bebpo on January 10, 2012, 01:38:37 PM
The first couple of episodes are kind of bad.  I gave up after ep1 myself, but later went back and watched further and found a great show.

This review on amazon sums it up well:
Quote
The first several episodes of "Aquarion" are not very engaging -- they speed by too fast, don't really make you care about the characters, and basically consist of the same pattern: Apollo does something feral and/or stupid during training, Silvia and/or Sirius are disgusted, the Cherubim attack, but Our Heroes (including Apollo) save the day and learn a valuable lesson in the process. Also typical anime cliches (accidental kiss, Benedict-and-Beatrice soulmates, and big strompy robots).

But after the first five or six episodes, something happens -- the series gains a sense of humor that infuses its rather cheesy overarcing storyline. Kawamori lets the story unfold gradually, and with a sly sense of spoofery and occasional bittersweet moments (Apollo's friendship with Baron) instead of pompous seriousness. Silly attack names ("Unlucky Bottom Attack!"), comical deus ex machinae (Our Heroes are saved by a cry of "DINNER!"), piroetting alien mecha, lots of pseudomystical stuff, cosplay, and a Yoda-like commander who exists solely to teach the heroes Important Life Lessons and spout cryptic sayings at the worst times. And I must admit, those orgasmic mecha merges are pretty funny.

"Aquarion" takes a long, long time to get off the ground. But once the satire kicks in, this mecha series becomes a gorgeously animated, fluffy brand of brain-candy.

It also has a great Yokko Kanno soundtrack.

And predictably, everyone on anime-gaf hates Aquarion Evol while they froth at the mouth for the next moemoe schoolgirl slice of life. 

And apparently people have never even heard of Aquarion??  Dude, that was only 2005. 


You know, suddenly it becomes very apparent why the anime threads there are 100% junk...the posters are like twelve and started watching anime in 2009 and have no frame of reference for growing up on awesome 90s anime.  Instead they grew up on semi-awful moe digital shit.  Bleh.
My only posts in animeGAF threads was bitching about animeGAF itself. It didnt take long for me to realize the opinions and discussions I would source from there would be somewhere below general shounen anime boards yet slightly above general moe crap boards. I've been watching anime since I was 5, have been on anime boards since around 12, while I have seen worse it's not worth my time to talk anime with people well below my usual standard of discussion :/

Naah, I finished it and got that it was a throwback/homage/parody. I liked it but it didnt stand out much for me because 2005 I was more enchanted reading/watching Beet the Vandal Buster, Pani Poni, Basilisk, FMP, School Rumble, Karas, Tsubasa, Gunparade, Mushishi, hell even though I dislike it Eureka Seven left more of an impression.

If GoA launched today though, it would have much less competition and I would have probably remembered it better. Victim of it's time IMO.

Aquarion just had too much humor for me. Kind of like Full Metal Panic. I loved the first season and Second Raid, but Fumoffu was just too silly for me.

Gurren Lagann was a nice balance.

i've readed buddha and it's really an interessing manga,from the name you'd think it would just jump to talk about religion and stuff like that but actualy it starts by following the life of several characters and basicaly how it sucks to live in the indian equivalent of medieval times,there is war,political conflict,philosopy about life (obviously) and the plot goes on for several years and feature enough murders to make that blackjack page i posted a while ago seems like nothing much...

if there is a problem about it... it becomes too much about buddha's sermon's near the end,but the first books are totaly engrossing and a total change of pace from either :uguu or people screaming energy attacks,that's usualy associated with manga's

In general, people have been giving up on anime year by year.  Not just on commercially buying anime, but on even bothering to torrent or watch anime.  Even the fansub groups have dwindled and some shows are slipping through with no subs.  Anime is doomed and all that.

Alright animu experts, I turn once again to you.

Next week is my birthday, and I traditionally take a day off and do mushrooms. I would like to have a movie to watch during this! The perfect candidate is extremely visually impressive and light hearted. Visually impressive being more important than light hearted. And preferrable dubbed because I probably won't want to read on shroomies but it might be fun to just watch something in Japanese without subs :lol

Suggestions?

I was originally going to say Mind Game, but that's only in Japanese.

Stuff I watched this week Prince of Tennis II, Natsume Yuujinchou Shi, Fate Prototype, Sengoku Paradise, Nisemonogatari.

PoT was good, I think I mentioned how I can see the shows parallels with one of my all time favourites, Captain Tsubasa.
Fate Prototype
was a fun little look into what the Fate universe could have been like had the original vision been followed, wacthing it im glad they edited it as it currently is though.
Natsume was a slow starter, but it always is.
Sengoku Paradise wasnt actually funny, but i'll keep watching these shorts cause I like these chars from the games/history.
Nisemonogatari Mentioned it a little here, was excellent.

I'd recommend you more anime like it, unfortunately Planetes is pretty unique. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex similarly focuses on the interaction between technology and people/society, though it also has a heavy focus on politics and intrigue as well [more so than Planetes]. Maybe check out Steins;Gate, it's a really good time-travel story with a decidedly interesting main character. Niea Under 7 is a fun little anime about a girl from a small town and a bunch of lazy, moocher aliens, if you want some scifi that's more light-hearted and [pardon the expression] down-to-earth.

Well, there is another show that's similar to Planetes. I hesitate to recommend it for a variety of reasons, not the least of which because it's far less serious and plays a bit more loose with logic and reality, but...you can give Rocket Girls a try. It's surprisingly not bad and isn't nearly as loose with its science as you'd think. But, again, you give the cover one look and...well...

Edit: Forgot about Moonlight Mile. It's basically a show about two awesome dudes that decide to become astronauts. I can't vouch for it's quality though.

Production I.G. exec Maki Terashima-Furuta made comments (reported at Anime News Network) to the effect that a live-action Jin-Roh is being prepped while another I.G. rep confirmed that the studio is preparing a third Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series. Yay on both counts!


Of course, there have been two Jin-Roh / Kerberos live action films released to date – Red Spectacles and Stray Dog: Kerberos Panzer Cops, both of which were directed by Jin-Roh creator Mamoru Oshii. No word on whether or not Oshii will be taking up the reins on the third film (though if he doesn’t, I expect the flick to be far more straightforward than the other two – which both followed Oshii’s wierd, experimental idiom).

As for the as-yet unnamed 3rd Gig, the director (presumably series director Kenji Kamiyama) is reportedly ‘tied up in other projects‘.

@Spence. Depends what you are looking for in a GitS story. 2nd gig is a much more personal story than 1st and in my opinion a lot better. The antagonist is just leaps above the Laughing Man as well. I love 1st gig, but 2nd is my soul mate.

Aah, I see. I wanted to introduce you to some more sombre dramas, I myself still struggle to understand why I watch them as they make me feel like shit all the time, but I never stop :/

If you want somber anime drama about the human condition, you can do no better than Now and Then, Here and There which is unique in that it's also an amalgamation of numerous genres, notably sci-fi and fantasy.

You keep bringing up depressing and wah wah, but like Spencer said, sometimes nothing tops a good downer story. I don't understand why people gravitate towards happy feelings all the time. A good story is a good story, and Now and Then, Here and There is leaps and bounds above most common anime due to its realistic approach to drama and the subject matter it entails.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Momo on January 13, 2012, 04:22:27 PM
Momo, I can appreciate somber stories and have in the past, but winters just not the right time of year fir me to be watching them, it'll sink me too low! Depressing stories are good to balance the soul though, and sometimes we need a reminder of how fragile the human condition really is. But I'm a hippy, I believe in love and the interconnectivity of everything in the universe (probably part of my appreciation for Planetes) so I don't go for nihilistic stuff. I did in my teens, but I'm passed the meaningless of life stage. :)
We'll talk more in the summer then, the shows I have in mind are mostly interpersonal relationships gone horribly awry. I find stuff like Suzuka crazily depressing but laugh at Grave of the Fireflies.

Currently having fun reading through Unbalance x Unbalance for the second time, it's a drama with a male lead that punches girls in the face :lol

It just made me angry, and when that went away I laughed at the absurd choices Seita makes. Seita is pretty much a stubborn dick.

You laughed at Grave of the Fireflies?

I don't think I could take any of your recommendations then! The movie broke my heart so bad there's still a scar!
The problem for me is I never identified nor felt a connection to Seita, he just made me angry.

You keep bringing up depressing and wah wah, but like Spencer said, sometimes nothing tops a good downer story. I don't understand why people gravitate towards happy feelings all the time. A good story is a good story, and Now and Then, Here and There is leaps and bounds above most common anime due to its realistic approach to drama and the subject matter it entails.

Nothing against depressing, though I'm not really one for rewatching such shows/movies, but Spencer did specifically say he wanted lighter fare which Now and Then, Here and There is decidedly not. You've definitely got to be in the right mood for it.

spoiler (click to show/hide)
Making Setsuko live in a hole in the wall and eat shit/nothing when he had the means to feed her properly. He should have had her checked out earlier, he should have got the money/food earlier.  surely you notice your little sister turning into a no energy zombie and wasting away into a skeletal figure? Instead of going gung ho with the food at the end he could have at least given her a fruit or two a day with the money they had and supplement that with fish he catches. Instead he basically ignores it till its too late

The guys that did Time of Eve have another project in the works:

Quote
The official website for Purple Cow Studio Japan's Sakasama no Patema (Patema Inverted) revealed details about the anime film's plot and main character on Tuesday. Time of Eve creator Yasuhiro Yoshiura is writing and directing the anime film for release throughout Japan this year.

The story will take place in an underground world where tunnels extend everywhere. Even though they live in dark and confined spaces, people wear protective clothes and lead quiet and enjoyable lives. Patema, a princess in her underground village, loves to explore the tunnels. Her favorite place is a "danger zone" that her village prohibits people from entering. Even though she's scolded, Patema's curiosity can't be held back. No one ever explained what the supposed danger was. On her usual trip to the "danger zone," Patema faces unexpected events. When hidden secrets come to light, the story begins to unfold.

Yoshiura previously wrote "This new animation is … a story about girl-meets-boy, and boy-meets-girl. It is an extremely righteous, but also extremely strange, story."

Moretsu Pirates is SO GOOD. It's not moving at some whiz-bang pace or anything, nor does it feel like it's just twiddling its thumb with meaningless stuff, but it's keeping things a bit slow to build up the characters that will be important for the rest of the 26 episode run. It's also got a nice balance between being light-hearted at its core and also having little dramatic moments to deepen the characters. It's a modern big-budget series injected with the soul of anime at its height.

Here's some good news for magus:

Quote
The North American publisher Digital Manga is raising funds through the Kickstarter website to publish Osamu Tezuka's Barbara manga in English. Digital Manga gave the following description of the story:

Barbara opens with famous author Yosuke Mikura wandering the packed tunnels of Shinjuku Station, where he makes a strange discovery: a drunk woman, her rags caked in mud, who can quote French poetry. Her name is Barbara. He takes her home for a bath and a drink, and before long Barbara has made herself into Mikura's shadow, saving him from egotistical delusions and jealous enemies. But just as Mikura is no saint, Barbara is no benevolent guardian angel, and Mikura grows obsessed with discovering her secrets, tangling with thugs, sadists, magical curses and mythical beings - all the while wondering whether he himself is still sane.

Digital Manga aims to release the manga in large paperback format (5 7/8" x 8 1/4") if it receives US$6,500 in funds by February 12. As of Saturday, it received over US$5,000. Contributors will receive various rewards, depending on the level of their pledge.

i knew about the game but i had no idea it was a tezuka manga originaly

and uh... it was a little disappointing,the main character goes slaying a bunch of demons and all it's cool,story happens,then *BUM* the ending come without any sort of advise and is totaly anti-climatic and goes... "and then he went searching for the remaining demons"... i heard the other versions have a proper ending? how does it end?

i've readed a bit of it and i just didn't feel it... but i might finish it later
besides while i like the guy,he seems fixated with the theme of discrimination and racism (astro boy = everybody hates robots,black jack = everybody hates blackjack scarred face) so in that regard picking a manga about nazism seems like overkill

@GR The movie has a bit of a darker tone and features a dude in black as I recall. I recall it being good but cant remember too many details.

It was okay, but 3/4 of the movie was just getting the gang back together. Once that happened, it was basically over. Ultimately disappointing and pointless, still not a bad movie though.

Aria the Natural

I'm watching this again because I got the DVD sets for Christmas, but I could probably watch it a dozen times and not get tired of it. What Aria does really, really well is to immerse the view in a wonderfully realized and idealized world. No other anime I can think of does this so well. And that soundtrack [those acoustic guitars = love], easily one of the best. I like the second the season the most because it had a lot of episodes that dealt with the more supernatural side of the world [especially with Cait Sith].

I watched the 2 movies ages ago when they aired on the Scifi Channel. They're really great examples of late 70's/early 80's Japanese scifi, they've got that whole world-hopping adventure through a strange galaxy going on. And they're both directed by Rintaro, so plenty of weirdness going on. I'm definitely interested in watching the series.

Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa is hot hot hot. Absolutely gorgeous on Blu-ray.

:bow Yoko Kanno J-pop fluff music videos and mecha battlin' itano circus action. :bow2

Some interesting changes are made, so if you have any interest the series is probably still worth checking out first.

Changes with spoilers:
spoiler (click to show/hide)
Grace is captured by Leon. Sheryl is arrested under suspicion of being a spy and sent to Alcatraz. Tons of other Macross fleets show up at the end for the big fight, including Isamu from Macross Plus. Brera works with the SMS in the first film and isn't prortayed as a bad guy as much. Lots more people die. Ranka does a show at Alcatraz with some nods to Macross 7 and Fire Bomber.

Star Driver pt.2 seems sold out everywhere and every shop is "waiting for re-supply from the manufacturer".  Considering Bandai said they're going to stop producing discs in a week or so, I'm a little worried this is going to be a low production run and become a stupid rare high price on ebay title.

So I watched Rinne no Lagrange ep1 after duckroll said it was a good mecha show that will be in Super Robot Wars and is by the director of Nadesico.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWOKnRw8mGg

First of all, SO MUCH MOE/FANSERVICE ARGHHHHHHH


But if you can make it past that, it's actually...well directed seemingly decent mecha show?  The art is pretty good and the animation (funded by NISSAN) is really nice, even the cell-shaded mecha fights look pretty darn good for being CG.

I think I'll put up with some underwear shots every ep to get another mecha show.  THREE mecha show episodes per week between Aquarion EVOL, Gundam AGE, and Lagrange!  After a long ass drought of no mecha shows at all besides Star Driver, who'd have thought they were making a comeback.  YAY, it's time for me to get back to liking anime again!

It's like Gunbuster, there are guys but they're the commanders and stuff!

Aquarion Evol 3 - This was great and felt like a classic mecha show ep from the golden era of anime.  Very fun, characters are likeable, story babble is interesting, good comedy, feel good mecha anime.  The whole show feels like a throwback to late 90s/early 00s SR animes I grew up on.  This gonna be good :)  I don't think anyone could enjoy it if they haven't seen the original Aquarion though.  Need to understand the connections and nods.

well allright i bited on this suggestion and err... :-\
this was totaly not worth it

1) the plot only works because the main character is a doofus
2) i like tezuka works because he can make creative plots,the first black jack book on this regard is freaking amazing... like i once gained interess in this visual novel where it turns out after an operation the protagonist start to see humans as monster... to my surprise it turn's out that plot is ripped from a tezuka work,but in this one nothing interessing happens
3) the whole thing was unpleasant to read in the way it treats the "villain" being bi-sex,or maybe i'm just a prude guy

I've been watching this, too.  You're exaggerating the fan service part, although the scene in the first ep where the girl's cousin pulls her pants to look for... ???...definitely fits said description.  You also have the weird alien girl wearing a leotard, which is at least pointed out and chuckled at by the other high school chicks when she first shows up.

The show is the standard humans vs aliens fare, and MCD, there are dudes.  The way it's playing out right now, the human side uses girl pilots and the alien side is all pretty-boy types.
My main problem with this show is its pacing.  It's a little TOO fast.  The main girl just accepts getting into a mech and piloting in a life or death battle with no problem.  WTF? 

Anyway, I'm watching this, Moretsu Pirates, and the best one of them all:

magus, you should watch Thermae Romae.  It's only 6eps but I think it is up your alley.  There's also a manga which you could read instead.  Plus you are Italian so it's like learning about your ancestors and how they bathed.

Naruto was cute again.  It's sort of like Eureka Seven except instead of Naruto kicking ass with the power of LOVE from an alien girl, it's from the power of LOVE from a giant fox inside him.  Hokage final form Naruto is pretty boss looking.  Guess manga is really ending soon since I don't see any further forms left for him.

Hunter x Hunter was really good again.  This arc has been pretty solid and all the boring political talk finally makes sense as he was using it as a counter to the exciting violent storyline going on in the other story.  It's good to see Togashi back as an interesting manga writer again.  After Greed Island which was just ok and Ant arc which sucked, I thought HxH was done for, but this arc gives me hope it might pull itself back together much like Togashi's health.

Movie is way tamer than the book and especially manga.  There're only really hints at sexual stuff in the movie.  I read the manga a while back, and I could be mistaking it for another manga, but there was fingering bullet holes and shit like that.

Movie changes a lot of details because it's too much story for the run time.  Kiriyama is a totally different character.  Aforementioned sex stuff is barely mentioned.  Kitano.  In a lot of ways its better than the manga for it.

You guys all NEED to watch Thermae Romae.  This show is hilarious in a comic strip way I haven't seen since Cromartie.  The art and comedy sort of reminds me of Slam Dunk style.  The first ep is just alright, but after that each ep is hilarious.  And the episodes are only 13mins!  Sad that it's only 6eps long.  Hope it gets another season down the line.  It's great stuff.  I saw on wikipedia that the manga it's based on won some awards for best short story manga and I can see why.  The premise is so outrageous and the execution is fantastic.

Plus the show has ZERO creepy animu crap and is actually educational as it teaches you about both Roman history and how modern bathing technology works.

Nisemonogatari ep2 - Show continues to be disappointing beyond all words.  Not only is it disappointing when compared to the incredible timeless anime classic show that was Bakemonogatari, but it's not even an entertaining show standing on its own.  It's just boring. 

Apparently, when the staff had no money it forced them to be creative and put together the show in stylish Evangelion style dramatic still usage and creative animation techniques.  But now that they have money it's just non-stylish and bland with lots of animation frames :|  Plus I haaaate the character designs in this.  Everyone looks terrible and nothing like they are supposed too.  Especially araragi who looked cool in Bakemonogatari and now he looks like bad art guy.  The editing and dialogue and scripts feel much slower and less clever.  Huge lack of puns and sharp jokes.  And the music is so much worse as well.

Nisemonogatari lacks the charm of the original.  Almost every aspect of the original had a certain charm to it.  Even the next ep previews with his sisters waking him up in SD form were charming.  There's nothing like that in this show.

The show feels like if they gave it to someone other studio and said "hey, make the sequel imitating the style of bakemonogatari".  Just feels like a cheap imitation.  Have no faith that I will enjoy this show.  Reaaaaaaally hoping the movie is more like Bakemonogatari.  Otherwise I'll just go and rewatch Bakemonogatari, which is what I feel like doing now after watching this poor imitation.

I mean just compare this scene in bakemonogatari which is hilarious and clever in all its references to anime/manga/pop culture even without understanding the dialogue (which is clever as well).  Really tight editing/directing:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMy2ibMcR0g
Then they try to remake the scene in nisemongatari with a bigger budget and all its soul is lost and it's just boring:

Plus in Bakemonogatari when they actually put money into episodes we got cool looking animation like this:

Went back and watched some bakemonogatari again.  Still so good.  Show never gets old.  Wish there were more dialogue exchange clips on youtube as the dialogue exchanges are the best parts of the show.  There's an exchange in Ep3 with Arraragi and Senjougahara where they are hanging out in a park and she's offering him favors and it's just amaaaaazingly well written comedy that keeps upping the ante.  Every ep has lots of "spit your drink" moments.

Haha, I expected that reaction from you :P

The thing about Bakemonogatari is it's really not as perverted harem show as it seems on a casual glance.  The show doesn't pander or emphasize or glorify sexual fetishes, it just uses them as humor.  I think a western comparison is Archer which is extremely vulgar in sex jokes and stuff, but it's using them as exactly that, jokes.  Not pandering in a sexual way.  Just cultural differences where in the west we make jokes about jerking off and bjs and in the east they make jokes about lolicon and siscon and sorocon.

I actually knew you'd post that too.  I'm on top of everyone's take on Bakemonogatari here :P

It's definitely not for everyone.  It's not an action show, or much of a story show.  It's an entirely dialogue-based character show.  Like a stage play set in 1 room with 2 characters.  You have to like that sort of thing.

Post by: Bebpo on January 29, 2012, 04:25:58 PM
siscon is just the oniichan thing of lolicon with a little sister that you see in a million anime and it's always creepy.

sorocon is something I think the bakemonogatari author made up based on this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_marriage#Sororate_marriage.  The dialogue is something like:

[A = guy, B = girl]

B: You always dote on your sisters, could you possibly be a siscon, perhaps?
A: No, falling in love with your sister...it's just a fantasy by those who don't have sisters.
B: Fine, you're not a sis-con.  So you won't fall in love with your sister?
A: How could I!
B: That's right.  You seem more like a Soro-con
A: Soro-con?
B: The abbreviation for sororate marriage, also known as inter-marriage inclusive of all sisters.  It means marrying the older or younger sister of your wife whose passed away.
A: And why am I soro-con?
B: In your case, you'll most likely marry the younger one rather than the older one.  You'll get your wife's younger sister to call you "oniichan" and then you'll kill your wife and marry her younger sister and still have her call you "oniichan" afterwards.  Thus you can love your sister without loving your sister.
A: Now you're saying I'll kill my wife??
B: Well, because you're a soro-con.
A: I'd rather be a sis-con than a soro-con in that case!
B: I thought you said you wouldn't fall in love with your sister?  Then will you fall in love with a lover who is not blood related?
A: Like I said...!!!  Huh?  I lover who is not blood-related?
B: Haha, you're so easy to tease.  Small jokes get you so riled up.
A: These aren't small jokes!
B: I was just testing you now.
A: Why am I being tested?  You mean you're not even going at me with everything you've got?
B: To use my full potential I would have to transform (henshin)
A: YOU CAN TRANSFORM!?  Wow!  I'd really want to see that! [sarcasm]
B: You make such huge reactions to everything, but you're always so petty.  Still, regardless of how petty you are, I will never abandon you.  I will cope with you and your pettiness until the bitter end.
A: Deep.
B: So, besides your pettiness, is there anything else I can help you with?

Obviously some of the dialogue rolls are lost in translation but the entire show is like 200 of those conversations non-stop with excellent directing and acting to pull them off in a fiendishly clever way.  It's why Bakemonogatari is one of my favorite anime.

Naruto was cute again.  It's sort of like Eureka Seven except instead of Naruto kicking ass with the power of LOVE from an alien girl, it's from the power of LOVE from a giant fox inside him.  Hokage final form Naruto is pretty boss looking.  Guess manga is really ending soon since I don't see any further forms left for him.

Hunter x Hunter was really good again.  This arc has been pretty solid and all the boring political talk finally makes sense as he was using it as a counter to the exciting violent storyline going on in the other story.  It's good to see Togashi back as an interesting manga writer again.  After Greed Island which was just ok and Ant arc which sucked, I thought HxH was done for, but this arc gives me hope it might pull itself back together much like Togashi's health.

You are clearly underestimating the ability of manga/anime publishers to stretch things far past the point of viability.

The one thing is that Naruto seemingly has his final upgrade, or at least the one that's been teased since the beginning of the series.  But this is the same magazine that hosted Dragon Ball aka SUPER SAIYAN 3 what the fuck.  Naruto's current final boss has more or less been pulled out of thin air.  Ignoring him, there are two other major bad guys running around.  There's a lot more milking to be done.

That argument makes sense if Naruto is as popular as Dragon Ball was. But it isn't. Toriyama was forced to stretch his story by publishers. I highly doubt publishers would give a shit if Naruto ended any time soon, not to mention, Naruto has lasted longer than Dragonball's Shounen Jump run. Dragon Ball lasted in Jump for 9 years and Toriyama wanted to end the series after Freiza. Naruto has been in jump for 11 years, comparatively.

Not Dragon Ball popular. Why would a publisher want to draw out Naruto with sales like that? It has lasted 11 years. That's a long time. If Naruto is over soon, I doubt jump executives will give a fuck, especially since Toriko is rising up the charts, which is relatively fresh.

You have to realize that Kishimoto is not a talentless hack like Kubo.  He has some pride and when the story is done he's not going to pull arcs out of his ass to make it keep going for years like Bleach.  The bad guy for this is THE MAIN VILLAIN FINAL ENEMY.  He's the most powerful character in the entire universe and his goal is like the end of FMA and END OF WORLD if he wins.  Naruto is in his FINAL FORM to get ready to beat him.  Sasuke is ABOUT TO APPEAR.  Everything is pretty much point towards a final climax.  I think Kishimoto will pull off a really cool finale that wraps all the remaining subplots together into a nice epic finish.  I think Naruto will end in the next 2 years.

yeah, but this current final boss is actually pretty recent.  Initially Pain was shown as the Akatsuki leader, and then suddenly this goofball became the real final boss.  It's not like it was even hinted at.

The one reason I'd agree with you is because Naruto has already tackled every cliche and wrapped up everything hinted at earlier in the manga.  There's possibly the world outside of the hidden ninja villages, like with the samurai, and that could be a new arc.  It could even be delayed if Naruto isn't suddenly hokage after this.  I'm just saying that I wouldn't be surprised if a new arc was pulled out of Kishimoto's ass.

And I disagree that Kishimoto has a lot of pride in his work after the entire zombie versus scrubs thing.  Naruto was sub-Bleach at that point.


In general that's the problem with establishing a finite goal at the start of a manga.  There's never a satisfying conclusion and a lot of times it feels like the series is being stretched to avoid reaching that point.  Hajime no Ippo is the absolute worst at it, followed by Bakuman.  So much inanity in both of them.

It's another reason why Hunter X Hunter is great.  Gon's end goal wasn't really to meet his father, but to understand what it meant to be a hunter and realize why his father chose it over him.  It's open ground for adventuring.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Bebpo on January 30, 2012, 03:32:00 AM
I think he has pride in his work, but that doesn't mean he's that great of a writer  :lol  I mean the current final boss's MOON EYE PLAN is really stupid and bad writing.  Everything involving Sasuke is bad writing (remember DANZO).  Naruto has lots and lots of stupid stuff because Kishimoto isn't that great of a writer.

But where I think Kishimoto isn't a hack and has some pride is that none of this stupid stuff ends up lasting and becoming the focus of the series.  It all has it's 3-4 months of dumb and then the manga gets back to Naruto and things moving and it's good again.  They're like temporary dumb spots where Kishimoto can't think of anything so he gets some drug addict off the street to make up the connecting bit of story.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Bebpo on January 30, 2012, 03:34:15 AM
The difference with Bleach is it never has that good core to go back to.  The dumb stuff IS the main story each arc and there's nothing behind that when the arc is over to carry the series.  The series is literally empty and nothing but a series of dumb arc after dumb arc where kubo keeps making shit up because he doesn't want to just cancel the series since there's no point to it anymore.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: cool breeze on January 30, 2012, 03:43:16 AM
well, Bleach gets better the dumber it gets.  It's almost a parody of every bad Jump trope.  Inexplicable...I was going to list things started with power ups, but really everything.

Initially it was "hey this is a bad rip off of like Yu Yu Hakusho!" and then stuff happens and characters can suddenly fly and characters Ichigo defeated as a weakling can now defeat much stronger enemies like it's nothing and Kubo gets tired of drawing background so lets set this in a place where everything is white.

According to GIGAZINE, Takeda Seiji, the chief producer of MBS, revealed a movie project of Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto at Anime Business Forum +2012. Takeda said the low rating of the Takuto TV series could be attributed to the sexy scenes, which might make children refrain from watching the program in front of their parents. He regretted that they should have aired the anime at night or added such scenes in the DVD.
 
He also announced that the director and the script writer of Ao no Exorcist Movie are Takahashi Atsushi ("RideBack") and Yoshida Reiko, respectively.

Netflix is English dub only, so I never watch anime there.
Yeah, I don't recommend anime to people with netflix streaming because of the shitty dubs only versions.  Would turn people off of even good shows :(

Poop.

Well, I'll probably just watch on Hulu or something, now that I'm not being IP cockblocked. Is there a free internet TV viewing service which has Japanese and subtitles?

Please don't answer "bit torrent" or I'll break out the vuvuzela.

I don't think dubs are bad enough that I would willingly avoid or not suggest someone watch a great show because it's only available in dub.

Dubs have vastly improved the past 10 years and in some cases I'd rather watch it in English than in Japanese. For example, on my list, I think GitS: SAC, Gank, Samurai Champloo, FLCL, and a few others are actually better in English than Japanese. Especially SAC, since it has so much information to absorb, and watching it subbed can be tedious.

Bad, stiff, awkward voice acting. 

Everyone sounds like a creepy porn actor/actress.


If only dubs sounded like saturday morning cartoons or stuff that runs on cartoon network it'd be all good.  Giant Robo original dub is like that.  A few of the Disney/Ghibli ones sound pretty good.

Moretsu Pirates continues to be everything that current, mainstream anime isn't: a deliberately-paced, lighthearted scifi adventure that doesn't shy away from employing techno-jargon and is almost entirely devoid of fanservice. That's all absolutely stunning, given its considerable budget.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: MCD on February 05, 2012, 01:51:21 AM
@Bebpo

Yes, I saw it but it's been awhile so here is my 2 cents on the show:

It's good but not faithful to the source material so if you don't mind that then that price is a deal. Story is same old same one guy who is for some reason the only one who can pilot a specific robot etc. and the characters aren't anything special except for two characters (you will know them when you see them, especially THAT one) but overall, the action parts are what makes it special. It's Escaflowne like mecha badassery and everyone loves Escaflowne.

So yes, get it.

And even though these are cinematic movies there is still places for loli/underage characters with big boobs/nakes scenes just because/blahblah so try to ignore or endure them.

I want to buy it but I will get it with Sengoku Basara 1+2 this week.

I like The Third: Girl with the Blue Eye. It's got some likable characters, a great setting, and nice action scenes and animation. But it has the absolute most egregious use of disembodied narration I've ever seen. The narrater, who's just your average omnipotent narrater, pops in several times an episodes to tell what is BLATANTLY OBVIOUS TO ANYONE WITH EYES. It drives me absolutely insane.

*shot of black clouds on the horizon with a lot of lightning*

"A storm was approaching."

*main characters gets injured and her friends are worried*

"At times, silence can be more poignant than loud noise."

SHUT UP. JUST SHUT UP.

E7 was not a show about lolis.  The only lolis were Dewey's army of male lolis on his ship.  The main cast were young adults in their late 20s and 30s, adults in their 50s/60s other than Renton/Eureka/Anemone and their little kids.

AO is ALL lolis and kids so far.  It looks like it's pandering to the new generation of creepy otaku shows.

Has anyone seen The Secret World of Arriette?

It received glowing reviews on RT, but I remember a lot of discussion elsewhere on how it doesn't live up to previous Ghibli works. Like not even in the same ballpark (basically production crew not being Ghibli's A-team).

Thoughts?

I saw it in Belgium last year, really liked it. My wife read The Borrowers as a kid and she loved it.

The main complaint I seem to be hearing is that Arrietty is not "epic" like some of Ghibli's other movies.

The writing was done by Miyazaki himself and the direction was done by a veteran Ghibli animator doing his first directorial work.

Most non-Miyazaki directed Ghibli films aren't epic, people need to get over it.

Arrietty was pretty good, a light little bit of inoffensive adventure. It's not deep or large-scale or anything like that, but it's fun and looks wonderful.

On the other hand, it's another in a line of recent Ghibli movies that, while certainly GOOD and among the best anime movies being made, aren't GREAT. Like, nothing Ghibli has done since Spirited Away is worthy of being mentioned in the same paragraph as Porco Rosso [which I had to go back to tonight and pop in for a bit]. The elder Miyazaki seems like he's in his twilight years as a creative talent, maybe he's got another movie or two left in him, but I just don't know if you can ever go back to where he was at his height and Ghibli doesn't have anyone else in their stable that's even close to him in terms of talent and vision.

It's very good, even though it's not Hayao. It holds its own against the larger Ghibli films pretty well. It has plenty of charm, and is well-paced. I liked it better than Howl's Moving Castle, and Pom-Poko.

K-On season 2 has been rescued from the rotting corpse of Bandai by Sentain Filmworks and it will be released on Bluray:

Quote
The North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Monday that it licensed the second season of the K-ON!! television anime series. The 26-episode anime sequel and the accompanying OVA will be available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc later this year. Sentai Filmworks is collaborating with Bang Zoom! Entertainment on the dub.

Based on kakifly's four-panel comedy manga about high school girls who form a rock band, the second television anime series premiered in April 2010. The series topped sales charts when its Blu-ray Discs shipped in Japan last year, and K-ON! became the first television animation franchise to sell over 500,000 Blu-ray Discs on Oricon's sales chart.

The North American anime distributor Bandai Entertainment licensed and released the first K-ON! television anime season in 2011 before it stopped releasing new titles this month.

How do you make a movie about ZOMBIE SHARKS With STABBY LEGS boring?  Maybe the manga was good and creepy, but the anime adaptation was neither scary nor so bad it's hilarious.  It was just slow and nothing much happened and was pretty dull.  The end twist about the TRUE FORM OF THE EVIL was lolz, but at least a bit creative.  But yeah, disappointing.

If I were going on a date with someone that was not a fellow nerd, I'd be pretending that anime and video games and comics and shit don't exist.  Go out to eat...go to the movies...go for a walk somewhere nice.  Do stuff she likes.  You know...date-type shit.  "Come back to my place and let's watch Japanese cartoons!!! :hyper" doesn't sound that great.

But if that is what you want, go for the otaku/weeaboo types and don't even bother with the rest.

It's like not going to the theater and watching a movie together because even though you like movies you don't want to "force your hobbies" on someone else.

That said, why would you WANT to watch anime with a girl, and why is it a priority? Watching the occasional anime, cool. But you're 30, bro. Shouldn't your priority when it comes women be beyond menial and irrelevant things such as whether or not she likes anime? I got over this in fuckng high school, dude.

Bebpo EVERYONE watches and goes to the movies. Comparing that to watching anime is grasping at straws. If you're going to watch anime with a girl, I'd try to make sure it's something cool like Cowboy Bebop, or something funny like Cromartie, or something EVERYONE can enjoy like Nausicaa. Not THIS:

Everyone and their mother loves Disney. Women I've dated have no problems with me liking stuff like Futurama and we'll watch it together. Because it's fucking awesome even though it's a cartoon. The distinction is making sure it's something she likes and not holding it on a pedestal. Because what you're saying is the equivalent of "I wish I had a girl who liked watching The Simpsons with me." which is cool and all, but it doesn't really matter and the only reason it does matter to (to you) is because it's anime. Which makes no sense.

I"m pretty sure girls have no objection to watching cartoons once in a while.

Jesus Christ, way to go overboard guys.

Thought process:
1.  I have this movie I want to watch (Gyo - Horror film by guy who did Uzumaki which is fairly mainstream acceptance in the horror community) 
2.  Should I watch it by myself tonight?  or wait and watch it with the gf on the weekend because it's the kind of thing that would be fun to watch together since we both like horror films and it's a campy horror film?
3.  Ask on TheBore to see if the movie is appropriate for watching with female and not some horribly sick.fuck movie

RESULT = YOU ARE A HORRIBLE WEABOO PERSON ATTEMPTING TO FORCE YOUR HOBBIES ON THE UNWILLING WOMEN OUT THERE WHO HATE ANIME WITH A PASSION.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.  WHY DON'T YOU GO OUTSIDE ON A WALK.  WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO WATCH A MOVIE WITH A GIRL IN A GENRE YOU BOTH ENJOY AS AN ACTIVITY TO DO TOGETHER.  DIE IN A FIRE WEABOO.

If you show her Whisper of the Heart and she grimaces then there MAY be something wrong because she's judgmental and superficial enough to not watch something because LOL IT'S A CARTOON, but at the same time, if you're just wanting her to watch PANTSU AQUARION FUN TIME with you, then there's something equally as wrong with that picture.

Do you want your gf to watch quality anime, or otaku anime like Aquarion? This is important!

See above.  Was asking about a horror movie that I knew nothing about its contents to FIND OUT if it was a ghibli type movie you could watch with normal people or an otaku movie that you wouldn't.  Which caused the forum to freak out and throw insults.  Except Momo.  Momo was awesome for giving me an actual answer.

I'd never watch Aquarion or anything wacky_jappy/boobs/mecha/uguu with someone else, guy or girl.  I'm not stupid.  Even FLCL would be pushing it too far into the fanservice-y and I would not watch that with a girl.

It's an absolutely travesty that the movie Kon was working on when he died is almost certainly just going to languish in development Hell for a while until it's quietly cancelled after everyone forgets that it ever existed.

Well, Madhouse is going out of business, so....  :'(

Jesus Christ, way to go overboard guys.

Thought process:
1.  I have this movie I want to watch (Gyo - Horror film by guy who did Uzumaki which is fairly mainstream acceptance in the horror community) 
2.  Should I watch it by myself tonight?  or wait and watch it with the gf on the weekend because it's the kind of thing that would be fun to watch together since we both like horror films and it's a campy horror film?
3.  Ask on TheBore to see if the movie is appropriate for watching with female and not some horribly sick.fuck movie

RESULT = YOU ARE A HORRIBLE WEABOO PERSON ATTEMPTING TO FORCE YOUR HOBBIES ON THE UNWILLING WOMEN OUT THERE WHO HATE ANIME WITH A PASSION.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.  WHY DON'T YOU GO OUTSIDE ON A WALK.  WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO WATCH A MOVIE WITH A GIRL IN A GENRE YOU BOTH ENJOY AS AN ACTIVITY TO DO TOGETHER.  DIE IN A FIRE WEABOO.

Really, guys?  I thought this forum was better than this.  But everyone still has a super kneejerk reaction when it comes to anime.

Are we really over-reacting, based on your dating post history here?   ;)

Do you want your gf to watch quality anime, or otaku anime like Aquarion? This is important!

See above.  Was asking about a horror movie that I knew nothing about its contents to FIND OUT if it was a ghibli type movie you could watch with normal people or an otaku movie that you wouldn't.  Which caused the forum to freak out and throw insults.  Except Momo.  Momo was awesome for giving me an actual answer.

I'd never watch Aquarion or anything wacky_jappy/boobs/mecha/uguu with someone else, guy or girl.  I'm not stupid.  Even FLCL would be pushing it too far into the fanservice-y and I would not watch that with a girl.

If this is your girlfriend and she knows what you're into (and you know what she's into), maybe wacky-uggu-mecha-boobs-animu is fine.  You didn't say that this was someone you were in a relationship with already.

Okay. I'm glad we got that settled.

Then it shouldn't be an issue because MOST people should find something to like about Totoro or Porco Rosso or even Perfect Blue or Tokyo Godfathers.
Perfect Blue is one of my favorite films of all time.

YES! YES YES!:

-Jormungand [YES!]

Definitely:

-Ozuma [Matsumoto scifi adventure = Yes]
-Uchuu Kyoudai [Realistic astronaut stuff!]
-Yurumates [the short OVA released earlier was okay, so I'll watch this too]
-Tsuritama [synopsis sounds interesting, different from the usual stuff, plus it's from the director of Kuuchuu Buranko and [C]]
-Sakamichi no Apollon [I'm not that sold on the synopsis, but it's Shinichirou Watanabe and Yoko Kanno so...yeah.]
-Zetman [looks pretty cool from what I've seen]

Maybe:

-Tosogare OtomeXAmnesia
-Hyouka
-Shining Hearts
-Sankarea [the manga is a total guilty pleasure]
-Medaka Box [the series started out as funny school comedy show with over-the-top stuff, but then got bad when it decided to be a grim-dark shounen series. Maybe Gainax can make it work]
-Nazo no Kanojo X [something about this...]

Very promising season from what I see.

Post by: Great Rumbler on February 27, 2012, 05:44:00 PM
It's sort of a harem show but not really. Haruko teases Naoto a few times but is mainly just interested in pulling stuff out of his head, Mamimi is interested in him a first but is mainly obsessed with his brother, and Nanimori might be interested in him but that never really goes anywhere.

Sure, in a very subtle way that no true harem series would ever bother with. Which was more to my point.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Himu on February 27, 2012, 05:53:28 PM
To expand upon Rumbler's post.

None of the girls except Namimori are interested in Naoto. Mamimi uses him as target practice for venting on her frustrations of losing her ex - Naoto's brother. It doesn't mean anything, and she doesn't know what to do with or what she wants with her life. Haruka doesn't flirt with him at all, she's just using him to let her boyfriend escape from the prison facility.

I think they do a real good job with the antagonist. He doesnt play a traditional antagonostic role for the most part. Kisemonogatari should have a bit more of a traditional antagonist but Araragi wont end up hating them as he always says "you cant blame the oddities" and I believe he even likens the antagonist to Oshino whom he respects a lot.

I wantched Ep 8 last night, epic lolz

Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva

Was like watching one of the games.  Slow pacing, lots of ridiculous stuff, English gentlemen antics.  But the story was freaking terrible and much worse than the 4 games that preceded it.  The entire basis for the plot doesn't make any sense

they need to get a girl to put Melina's memories in, so instead of just kidnapping some girl they make a HUGE MYSTERY GAME WITH HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE that costs a billion dollars of blowing up ships and castles.  WAT

and none of the new characters are interesting.

It's three films, right? Second one came out in theaters this past fall in Japan. Wonder when we'll get it here?

It took less than a year for the first to come out, so we should get the second sometime in late summer.

And it actually started as a Gonzo OVA in 2005, by the way, before eventually being cancelled. Probably Gonzo financial problems. It eventually got picked up as three-part movie by GoHands, a newcomer who has produced nothing else of note.

Well it doesn't sound like something I'd want to watch in general.  Sounds kind of rape rape from the way you guys were talking?  Rape scenes in anime really bother me.

I'll let you know.

Rape in general makes me uncomfortable, but I can handle it in media (ie. Dragon Tattoo, etc.).

Isamu Imakake directing new animated movie by Happy Science group

A website has been launched announcing the October release of the anime film adaptation of The Mystical Laws, a book by Ryuho Okawa, the founder of the controversial religious organization Happy Science (Kōfuku no Kagaku). The publishing arm of the organization will be producing the animated film alongside a live-action film adaptation of Okawa's Final Judgement. The group has sponsored a number of animated films in the past.

Cowboy Bebop set designer Isamu Imakake, who also directed the 2009 Happy Science film The Laws of Eternity, will be directing the film, and Okawa will oversee its overall production. The film takes place in 201X, when the newly-formed "Empire of Godom" is threatening to take over the world by using mysterious technology offered to them by Reika Chan, the mysterious female president of a trading company. The protagonist of the film Sho Shishimaru is the one man who has the "mystical technology" that can stop the Empire of Godom, but after being hunted down by the Empire, he is saved by "mysterious Indians," who tell him about a prophecy about the "second coming of a savior."

Various showings of Happy Science films have been held in the United States as far back as September 2000. In 2009, Fumiya Sato, author of Kindaichi Case Files, ran as one of 17 candidates representing the organization's political party Kōfuku Jitsugen-tō in Japan's legislative elections.

Innuendo aside, the show has started to pick up around ep10/11.  Mid-season is time to go off the hook and fully connect the story to the original Aquarion season it seems.  Which is what everyyyyyone is waiting for.

Fun show so far.  Feels very 90s mecha anime.

Caught up on most the on-going manga I read.  Hunter x Hunter could've ended for good a chapter or two ago on top of that tree.  Seemed like it was building up toward a "ok, I'm done, time to retire" moment of the series ending.

But it's shounen so new arc start!  Could be good.  Overall the Election/Killua Arc was pretty nicely done.  Was a good comeback for the author after the long hiatus.  I liked the ending bit of the election a lot.


Naruto is pretty much crap now since once again it's not focusing on Naruto but the other characters I don't like.
Bleach's new arc is very entertaining so far, though the manga is still dumb and sucks.
Gantz is still dumb.

Just need to catch up on Drifters, Soul Eater, and Yotsuba&! now.

Now that I caught up on all the anime I'm watching and manga I'm reading, I decided I'd finish up Nisemonogatari.  Watched ep4-5.  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.  Outside the parts with Kaiki, this show is so boring compared to Bakemonogatari :(

Is the entire 11ep run a single arc?  Bakemonogatari had great pacing by doing 3-4ep arcs.


At least the OPs/ED are good.  Hoping when things start happening this arc will pick up. 


PS.  Hate some of the re-designs in this show.  Hanekawa looks so bland now :|  Prefered the Fire Sisters when they were non-sexified and cute comedy duo.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Momo on March 27, 2012, 03:35:41 AM
Yeah it's all one long related arc. It's very different from Bakemono in terms of tone and pacing. There are eps when Araragi literally walks from one location to the next for the entire 25 mins. But they keep it interesting with the conversations the chars have with each other. It all comes nicely to a head in the final two eps, the slow build up just makes it all the more worth while. This is much more of a personal story than Bakemono

Yeah not digging the Hanekawa and Senjougahara re-design. They also re-design one of the fire sisters midway through .. i dunno what it is about short hair that gives them a hard on.

Nisemongatari ep6 - Mostly Senjougahara so it was good because her and araragi talks are always at least entertaining. 

I reaaaally hate that they gave Shinobu a voice now.  She was interesting in Bakemongatari and now she's just generic vampire loli :(  Also she sounds and acts exactly what Hanekawa's cat spirit sounded like at the end of Bakemonogatari.  At first I thought they were going to explain her talking by saying she absorbed the spirit in at the end of bakemonogatari, but no, that's just how she is.  Weird.

Can't sleep.  Watched Nisemonogatari ep7.

Fight scene with good animation -> Drama conclusion between siblings -> Kaiki scene -> Senjougahara scene -> Fake ending = good episode!  Would have thought that was the real arc ending if I didn't know there were still 5 eps left.  Curious where it goes now.

Oh.  That was the end of the Karen Bee arc.  Ok, well solid ending I guess.  Arc was way too freaking long and not very good overall though.  Should've been about 3eps, not 7.  Could've completely cut the first 2eps for starters.  Then compacted the other 5 into 3 without losing anything.  Shrug, $$$ talks and dragging out these novels forever is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ to Shaft.

At least this new arc only has 5 eps, so maybe it'll be paced a bit better.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Momo on March 29, 2012, 07:06:14 AM
The first arc has to be long. Although not completely about Karen, it's important to the second arc that you are very aware of Karen and the meaning she holds to Araragi.

that was greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat.  First ep to really channel that Bakemonogatari awkward perverse comedy.  Best intro to incest ep ever!  The part where Tsukihi comes in and they freak out in sync was so hilarious.  omg.  Also I love how Tsukihi is animated like a 1950s Disney character  :lol

So many possible screenshots to post, all which would get me banned from this forum, lol.

Off to a good start with this arc!  Maybe Karen Bee was just a fluke and this will be bakemonogatari quality.  Karen Bee wasn't 'that' bad in retrospect.  It at least had Kaiki who was interesting.

Nisemonogatari ep9 & 10

This arc is good.  Things are moving at a normal pace.  Lots of events, lots of different characters without focusing too much on a single character.  Everyone is getting good exposure.  The author of the series is really good at creating characters.  The onmyouji pair are great just like kaiki.  Almost every character in the bakemonogatari/nisemonogatari world is interesting and feels original and not just a copy & paste of an stereotype.  The only thing I didn't like about these eps and some parts of Karen Bee as well is wtf when did Araragi turn into a pervert obsessed with feeling up underage girls?  In bakemonogatari any pervy stuff by Araragi was always played off as a joke and in general he wasn't really pervy or love-y or anything.  He was kind of just a normal dude surrounded by supernatural women.  In this he's kind of a parody of himself from bakemonogatari and a total joke character + pervert.  He's not always like that, but he goes into those phases at times in eps and it feels out of character with who he was in bakemonogatari.

Anyhow Kaiki's voice actor (you know, the guy whose been in everything for decades; most recently as Lockon Stratos in Gundam OO) is giving a REALLY GOOD performance of being this middle-age completely worn out man who doesn't want to make any effort that he doesn't have to in life.  The VA combined with his greaaaaat theme music, makes his character a really good addition to the worldview of the series.

Anyhow, 1ep left.  Kind of surprised as it seems like there's a lot going on at this point, but the arcs tend to end things very quickly sometimes (like the final ep of Karen Bee) so I'm sure it'll be satisfactory.

Finished Nisemonogatari.  Tsukihi Phoenix Arc was good.  Interesting characters, solid story/dialogue, good scenes.  I don't think it ever really reached the heights of any of the Bakemonogatari arcs, but as a cash-in sequel which are going to be the rest of the books as they animate them, it was enjoyable.  It's hard not to compare it to Bakemonogatari though.  I remember watching the final arc of Bakemonogatari when they're lying on the grass looking up at the stars and thinking "wow, this is a great end to a great series".  So inevitably it's going to be hard to get that kind of feel from any future sequels, though Kizumonogatari can still be awesome since it's a prequel and I'm really looking forward to that.

Don't hate it, don't love it.  Was...ok with some good stuff, and some boring eps early on.

I like Persona 4, but the anime is bland and purposeless, utterly lacking in any kind of identity other than what it derives from being a frame-for-frame retelling of the game. I guess it's okay if you don't want to devote the time to play the game, but if you've played the game already then there's really no reason to watch the anime.

Black Lagoon is a top 5 anime of the last decade, it's not fair to compare other animes to it's standards. That being said,  RBT is excellent

TV series = 13-26 episodes shown on TV for free, generally over the course of a few months
OVA series = 3-6 episodes released one at a time on DVD for $30+ each, generally over the course of a year or more

No, OVA is not a measure of animation quality, but the basic idea is that the animators have more time and money to do things better than a tight TV schedule and budget would allow them to do.

OVAs vary just as wildly in quality and length as TV series.

No, this really isnt a thing, it's a perception. My young brain may be lying to me but I remember crap like the Hunter x Hunter OVA series being on par, if not regressing in animation quality from the TV series. Assuming a similar budget, quality goes down as series length goes up, be that a TV series or an OVA.

I'm willing to accept that you guys talk about quality of animation/presentation when talking OVA quality though. It's doesnt make much sense to be, but I can adapt, not a deal breaker.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: Bebpo on April 05, 2012, 03:45:43 PM
Yeah, OAV used to be for higher budget stuff.  OCCASIONALLY it still is used that way (Gundam Unicorn for instance has much better combat animation than Gundam TV shows; though the non-combat stuff is TV quality or below).

But usually OAV these days is more like "We can't get this on TV because no one will fund it, or it's inappropriate for TV, or we can't afford to do a TV show because it takes us 12 months to animate 30 mins with our team of 15 guys".  I think with Black Lagoon it was more that there wasn't enough material to animate a TV season and the audience for that kind of show has left and been replaced by the moe moe kyuun audience.


The trick with OAV I find is to just not watch it until it's done if you can.  That's what I did for Black Lagoon and so the wait time between eps didn't bother me.  Otoh, since Hellsing eps are years apart I watch them anyhow.


Btw, Himuro's Hellsing OAV > Hellsing TV comment on OAVs having better animation made me chuckle a bit considering the latest Hellsing OAV ep.  I wonder if we'll ever get the last 2 eps.
Title: Re: Official Manly Anime Thread of Joseph Joestar Vs. Vampires
Post by: cool breeze on April 05, 2012, 04:13:06 PM
Hunter X Hunter's were like that because the anime caught up to the manga.  If you compare the old anime to the manga or new anime, there're a lot of addition scenes or scenes that are stretched out.  HXH handled it really well by having filler that adds to the series instead of delaying story progression.  Just look at Dragon Ball Z taking 10 episodes to show Goku charge up or filler arcs from Kenshin, Naruto, or Bleach.  Eventually it hit that point where they had to end the series.  The anime ends in the middle of the yorkshin arc and the first OVA, which is excellent, finishes it up.  The final two dealing with Green Island, is when they rushed the animation and everything dropped in quality.

Kenshin's case is a weird since the first set is essentially a backstory to the final arc, and it was all done in regular Kenshin/children comic style, so overall lighter.  But since that final arc wasn't animated, that backstory was adapted into the darker, more adult oav.  The final arc from the anime was all filler.  The second oav was a really loose adaptation of the final manga arc done in the style of the first oav and it sucked.  And the first oav is really great.  So that whole battosai arc probably ended up better than it would have if the anime hadn't caught up the manga.

these are hunter x hunter spoilers, but just to compare the series to the latter oavs:

No, the scenarios were great.  It's just in execution those scenes were kind of average.  I think the directing was just a bit lackluster compared to the great art and crazy scenarios.  It was certainly no Miyazaki.


Duke Nukem Forever is case in point of that.  If you read the game design script it seems like the BEST GAME EVER of absolute ridiculous events one after another.  But in execution it was a shitty game.


What's weird is that this is the woman who directed Mitchiko to Hatchin and I thought Michiko to Hatchin felt more "Lupin" than the first ep of this.  I think it might be this one taking itself too seriously, whereas Michiko was a lighter fun show reminiscent of past Lupin.  Then again, it's only been 1 ep, so it's hard to judge and the show could be pretty good.

Are you using a 64-bit version of Windows? I was having problems with 10bit anime and it was because I was using the 32-bit version of WMPC and VLC.

It's an optional thing I did because LAV codec stuttered for me with vsync ticked on. Anyway make sure you are using EVR custom pres. under View --> Options --> Playback (Output).

Let… let me see if.. let me see if I can explain this…

Seishou Academy is host to a bunch of moe girls who are also assault rifles, which is not a metaphor.

The lead character is FNC, an anthropomorphized Belgian rifle with a skeleton butt (which is a particular kind of gun butt, not that her butt is a skeleton… forget it), which is why she wears a thong..? She nearly has an orgasm one day at the local fair when a human boy shows up and demonstrates perfect rifle-handling form at the shooting gallery booth. She keeps imagining his big rifle-fondling hands on her, and can't help herself. This is how the show begins.

So all the girls in the school are also guns, and all of their sex organs correlate to a part on a rifle – their chest is the hand guard, their vaginas are apparently the muzzle and the butt is also the butt. One girl gets sick with stomach pains and goes in to first aid, where the nurse tells her her spring is out of whack while pressing on her belly, which makes a bunch of mechanical gun noises. So their insides are all gun parts, I guess, but they have squishy moe anime girl exteriors. It isn't like other things where the anthropomorphized OS or gaming console girls are just extensions of the product's identity, these girls are supposed to literally be assault rifles in moe girl form.

(http://i.imgur.com/MByQv.jpg)

Later we learn all the different types of gun-girl-crazy goddamn mutant hybrid monsters what the hell is going on in this show that there are, each one with a different moe personality. Eventually FNC meets up with the human teacher and he puts his hands on her head, which nearly gives her an… orgasm? Uncontrolled fire? I DON'T KNOW. Then she shoots him, for the second time in the episode. The end!

So here's what I'm going to give Upotte!! the credit it truly deserves: this is some of the absolute craziest, dumbest, weirdly creepiest shit I have ever seen in my life. Whoever is responsible for this show was out of their goddamn mind and it feels like someone said “hey, anyone wanna trigger another one of those “wacky crazy Japan!” American news articles? Let's freak everyone out!” It is bananas.

Watch Upotte!! if you are one of the following:
A person who honestly just wants to see how completely bonkers they're apparently willing to get these days in the anime industry
A dude who has such a strong gun fetish that you want to f*ck your guns but until now haven't really had a proper way to fantasize about doing that
But one thing is absolutely for certain: there are two eras in anime history. A time before Upotte!! existed, and now, which is where we're at.

We're through the looking glass, people.

So I finished Roberta's Blood Trail and it was good but kind of weak in the very end because nothing really happened/changed and it felt almost like filler with no character/plot progress.


Then I read that in the manga this arc was half of the running manga so far (5 volumes out of 9), so it was basically 26eps worth of story that they condensed down to 5ep OAV and apparently changed the ending.  Whereas they followed the manga very accurately for the 26 TV eps of the show.  That explains a bit.  Might read the manga version of this arc over a weekend.  Kind of bummed to find out the manga is only like 5-6 chapters beyond this arc because it's one of those Berserk style ridiculously slow running ones.  Only 9 volumes over 10 years, eeek.

Would've been happy if at least Rock and Revy's relationship advanced some.  Eh, the first 26ep TV series stands good enough on its own to be a great show.  Who knows if the manga will ever finish to see a conclusion though.

It's not bad actually, a friend of mine suggested it to me a while back and I had the same misgivings about the manga, however after giving it a chance a few days ago, I do not regret reading it. Reminds me of Unbalance X Unbalance in a way, which is good.

He mopes for what is at best 6 chapters in the middle. He goes from scum > heartbroken > redemption. The redemption arc makes up for all the sobiness and the scum arc is pretty dumb fun mostly.

That looks terrible though.  Looks like Noir & Canaan.  But maybe I shouldn't judge it by the awful art.

I already commented on this once, but I will again. Jormungand isn't anything like Noir or Canaan. Those were serious business dramas with some action and lots of melodramatic characters. Jormungand is a fun action show about a bunch of lovable rogues who wind up in lots of crazy adventures. Like Cowboy Bebop, but replace "outer space" with "Eastern Europe."

Post by: Bebpo on April 12, 2012, 01:34:38 AM
Broken Blade ep1-2

The shit I put up with for my mecha fix. 


This is really bad :(  First of all, it's slooooooooooooooow and boring.  And then 2 hours in and the main character STILL HASN'T MADE A SINGLE ATTACK.  WTFFFFFFFF.  Who thought it was a good idea to spend the first 2 hours having the main character stand or fall or run or block and not have a single actual fight where he is attacking.  They even have a psycho-evil girl grunt just so you can watch her satisfyingly get destroyed and THE MAIN CHARACTER IS SO USELESS SHE HAS TO KILL HERSELF. 

And it's got all my anime tropes!  Crappy love triangle, FRIENDS WHO ARE NOW ENEMIES, subplots built entirely on MISUNDERSTANDINGS (You mean Zess didn't know the surrender terms?  You mean Rygar didn't kill Lee?  Smhhh) and my greatest foe in all mecha anime...THE PACIFIST LEAD CHARACTER.

If you're not going to fight, you don't get a cool mech
-god of anime universe

Stop giving me characters with mechs who don't want to use them.  It's not enjoyable at all.  Jesus.  As if Setsuna in the OO Movie wasting QUAN[T] entirely wasn't bad enough.  At least SEED did it right.  The whole thing Kira/Lacus go on about for the show, about how you can't just be a pacifist in a war if you want to sway people, you need to also BE THE MOST POWERFUL PILOT IN THE UNIVERSE AND CONSTANTLY PROVE IT so that other people will back down in deterrent.  I'm ok with leads who want to "not kill", but they need to be strong and determined enough to chop up all their enemies without killing them in a satisfyingly way.


Does this kid EVER become a badass fighter running around kicking people's ass without whining like a little runt?  This is important for if I watch the last 4 eps.


PS.  The animation sucks.  It's like watching MOTION MANGA.  Everything moves so slow it's almost like watching manga panels :|

E7 AO was ...good!  Not as good as E7's first classic episode, but it's well made and interesting and the art and music and animation are all fantastic.  Next ep will show how the action animation is going to hold up.

Will be interesting to see how the pace is since it's going to be 26eps rather than 50 like E7.

Ok, think I saw all the ep1's worth a damn this season.  Lots of good shows.  If I was 18 again I would be in total anime watching mood for the next 3 months.  But uh, I have stuff to do, so going to limit the shows I watch.

Good shows in no particular order: Kids on the Slope, Eureka Seven AO, ZETMAN, Jormungand, Tsuritama, Lupin.


Going to stick with Kids on the Slope, E7 AO, Lupin along with Aquarion Evol & Gundam AGE.  If I have time I'll try to watch Zetman.  Good season.

I want to watch Space Brothers and Kids on the Slope.  I don't know how crunchyroll operates, but it seems like episodes are free the week after they air.  Anyone know how long they're available to watch? I'd like to just watch a few episodes in a row instead of watch and wait.

Done with Bakuman season 2. Interesting show.

Definitely looking forward to season 3.

not interested in the manga?

not exactly a spoiler, more on the status of the manga, but don't know how sensitive some are

Break Blade ep3-4

This got a heck of a lot better.  A really good action scene in ep3 and then ep4 was great.  Show reminds me of Five Star Stories x Escaflowne.

Usually shows stay up permanently on Crunchyroll, although I do know of at least one show that was taken down after about a year. If you pay $8 a month, you get HD streams and Day 1 access.

BREAK BLADE 5-END

Ok, the final battle. 

spoiler (click to show/hide)
-Rygar jumps up and dives toward the general with ninja star
-General moves forward under him
-Rygar turns and throws it
-General tries to jump but it hits his foot and stumbles him
-Rygar pulls ninja star back and throws at stumbled general, cutting off 1 of his arms
-AT THIS POINT THE GENERAL GIVES UP COMPLETELY AND WALKS OUTSIDE HIS MECH SHOOTING HIS GUN

wtf

Everything shown so far with the general dude is that he will fight and fight and fight until he has nothing left.  It's not very satisfying for the finale fight that he just GIVES UP because he lost 1 arm and a foot.  He still had a good arm and a good foot.  I dunno.  The battle was good until that point and then it was just kind of "eh" end.
[close]

Giant Heavy Ninja Star is probably the stupidest final weapon upgrade ever.  That was the best they could come up with?

Also I think there's an inherent story problem in this movie because the main guy has zero fighting skills and his opponents are the ultimate skilled fighters.  Even with his strong mech, he never seems to have any breakthrough in becoming a good fighter.  He just sucks sucks sucks but occasionally gets a few good hits in or gets lucky.  I dunno, for a fighting mecha show that's not super satisfying.  You want the pilot to become good at piloting by the end and that's how he wins.


Complaints aside, it was pretty good.  It started off reaaaally slow and the first 2eps kind of suck.  Once it gets going it's a good political war mecha action show.  The character art reminds me of Lodoss as does some of the politics, the mech designs look EXACTLY like Nagano's Five Star Stories work, and the war with knight mecha and full cloth enemies and choir chanting music was very, very Escaflowne.  When the battles were going and intense and the choir was shouting it was fairly awesome.  Often the outcomes of the battles were kind of anti-climatic though.  But the actual combat tended to be good.  Also it was pretty bleak, basically everyone dies all the time and the bad guys usually win a lot. 

The ending was fairly complete even though the manga is still running.  Don't feel like I NEED to see what happens next in the manga, but if they animate more I wouldn't mind watching.  Don't care about Sasuke, so didn't mind that subplot not going anywhere.  Red hair dude was good.  His fight vs. Chainsaw Girl was satisfying.  Main guy still kind of sucked in the end like he didn't know who he really was or why he was fighting.  But at least he was sort of more confident than the start. 

I don't see how they can really do much with the sequel without a huge time skip since

That's where I thought it would end.  The only reason I'd want to watch the anime is to see how they stretched or removed scenes to make it end in the right place.

Bakuman spoilers until current

spoiler (click to show/hide)
I'm not really sure what point you ended on.  But yeah, it hits a point where the manga keeps delaying the inevitable.  In fact the entire current arc is about Ashirogi wanting to end their manga early instead of stretching it.  It's all a really obvious nod to Death Note.

Um, what else happens? there's this new villain character who shows up.  His whole deal is "editors r stupid; internet communities (1st arc) or companies dedicated to manga study (2nd arc) are superior."  The fat old guy comes back as a villain.  Uhhh, Hiramaru and Aoki's relationship goes places.  There's another fat villain (literally an old character who's fat) who spills Mashiro and Azuki's secret on the internet creating nerd rage.  Eiji becomes #1 in Japan and ends his manga.  It's a lot of stalling.

So far from this season, I'we watched:

Lupin The Third: Fujiko Mine

(http://i.imgur.com/vHxzq.jpg)

Sylish reimagination of Lupin the Third. With two episodes out so far, both have been pretty impressive: stylish, cool, well directed, well animated...it's got everything in the making of a classic, even down to the minutia. Highly suggested, especially for Cowboy Bebop fans, as you experience first hand one of the main influences of that series. It's interesting seeing Lupin as if CB influenced it, and not the other way around.

Space Brothers

(http://i.imgur.com/iPssm.jpg)

An original show, it's about two brothers who promise to become astronauts. One has already made it, the other is an underdog who has to fight for everything he does, born in an unlucky year during an unlucky hour. It's very refreshing to see a drama like this in anime, that almost gives Planates flashbacks.

Kids on the Slope


(http://i.imgur.com/Jaenl.jpg)

Shinichiro Watanabe's new anime tv series, with Yoko Kanno tagging along. We talked about the supposed homosexual overtones before, and while they show up in the first episode, it's not really overt or anything. Like Space Brothers, this is also a refreshing anime television drama, but instead of reaching for the stars, it's down to Earth, almost slice of life. The first episode shows a lot of potential. It seems like it'll be like K-on! except you know...good, with a bit of Nodame thrown in for good measure. Bonus points if you're a jazz fan. Look at the album covers inside the jazz shop!

These three shows are really good examples as to why I became an anime fan in the first place and I'm not even done watching the rest of the shows I want to check out this season.

The fact that I can watch them legally without supporting subbers is just the icing on the cake.

Kids on the Slope reminds me of the high school parts of XXXholic.

And you should add in Eureka Seven AO.  It's the best show of the season so far.  Even just going by the art.  Duckroll had a good post about how detailed the art is for a TV show (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=36987358&postcount=17062)

There's this idea out there that English speakers don't care for shows with giant robots and want girl panties instead.  Not sure where this comes from, all of the guys I know would rather see a good robot action show than a good loli fanservice show.

Star Driver, Lagrange, and SRW OG got streams. My thoughts on AO and AGE not getting streamed borders on crazy conspiracy theories with Bandai Visual and the fact that they just don't care.

Mecha shows aren't really selling here. They're not driving the NA industry, sadly. Take a look at the Anime On DVD or Fandom Post forums, you'll see very few people talking about mecha titles.

mecha shows don't sell here because there's no longer a toonami - an outlet for showing mecha to teenagers and kids. they totally mismanaged mecha in the west. mecha had potential to become huge. transfomers and gundam wing were already big in the early 2000's.
