Re: Series you think that should had been bigger in the West?

The Golgo 13 series is faithful to the comic, in both the good and bad ways. The anime movie is therefore the much more casual-appealing intro to the franchise.

Re: What are you Watching?

Yes! I'm getting around to the 3rd season now. Just a really surprisingly well done show.

Re: What are you Watching?

Chihayafuru--This is surprisingly a really fun show! Even though the rules of karuta can take a while to grasp, and the strategies even moreso, you get enough of the general idea for the dramatic gaming scenes to work. What makes the show work best though is the characterization, which is done patie...

Re: How have the drawings changed over the years?

As others mentioned, there has been more of a 'clean line' aesthetic. This isn't just limited to anime. Much of mainstream media now features a 'cleaner' aesthetic, emphasizing uniform precision over linework. Some of this is because of the change in tools, some of this is because it's a philosophy ...

Re: What are you Watching?

Started this show, quickly thought it was bad and always said I was coming back for a podcast review. So, uh, I'll get there eventually. It's...it basically starts off like Gurren Lagann, turns into Evangelion, then turns into Gunbuster 2. If you didn't like those shows I could see why it would be ...

Re: What are you Watching?

Girls Und Panzer--It's definitely for a niche audience. I will say though, I appreciate that the show is heavier on the tank battles than the "cute girls doing cute things" stuff. For the most part it's a school sports show combined with a tactical warfare show. Clearly aimed more at military otaku....

Re: What are you Watching?

I haven't seen the 2nd season yet. I'll get around to it eventually, though not right away as I'm basically fast-plowing through the last 4 years worth of shows I've been missing since I've been out of the loop for a while now and I'm in an anime binge mood lately.

Re: What are you Watching?

Darling in the Franxx--This seems to be a polarizing show. But as an all-out homage to Gainax's greatest hits it has its pleasures. It's like someone threw Evangelion, Gunbuster, Gurren Lagann with a dash of Urusei Yatsura and Eureka Seven in a blender and came out with Darling in the Franxx. I like...

Re: What are you Watching?

Barakamon--Nice, slim slice of life show. Nothing incredible here, just a satisfying time waster that never goes long enough or does anything bad enough to stumble. If you're an artist, you'll relate to the protagonist. Galaxy Express 999 TV--Finally it's here. Discotek has really nice job with upsc...

Re: What are you Watching?

Buncha shows: Squid Girl--Finally getting around to this. Amusing little comedy show, not quite as frantic as I expected, but suitable for kids as far as I can tell. Ancient Magus' Bride--Really enjoying what I've seen. Feels more like a European fantasy than your typical anime fantasy. Is It Wrong ...
