Re: What are you Watching?

Evangelion (numbers here) Thrice Upon a Time As pure spectacle it was wonderful. As an Evangelion film it's just as cringingly wish fulfilling and disposable as the last rebuild film. I do not arrive at Evangelion for the sort of pat ending this one offers. But it's nothing to rant about beyond thi...

Re: The old-school anime DVD/BD news thread.

On my last Gunbuster purchase, I remember I'd rip the first episode onto my laptop and splice in the original "Chariots of Fire ripoff" audio back into the montage sequence. That's how obsessive I was at getting it back to the original... I assume this blu ray will of course not have the C...

Re: Gkids licenses FUTURE BOY CONAN!

About damn time! I watched up to episode 23 back in 1993 and never finished the series. I started thinking about more dubious methods of finishing the series in recent years but never got around to really doing it. Glad I can finish the show, and legally to boot.

Re: What are you Watching?

The movie isn't really the best way to get into the Utena franchise, although it IS beautiful, probably one of the most beautiful anime films ever made. But it's really just eye candy compared to the TV series which is more meaty and dramatic. Not to mention easier to follow (well, a bit).

Re: Is there a new-school equivalent of Dirty Pair?

There have been a number of "buddy girls" show featuring girls with guns (more than I can count), but not exactly the same formula as Dirty Pair,

Re: Berserk Creator Kentarou Miura Passes at 54

Yeah, after a certain point in a long running series, you run a real danger of never finishing it before your time passes. That being said, 54 is still too young.

Re: The new Demon Slayer movie. It's a huge box office hit. Thoughts?

I figured it was popular on that typical shonen level of at least being around the same ballpark as a Tokyo Ghoul/Fairy Tail. But the money it's making in every country? That's unexpected. This movie has been beating even stalwart brand releases like DBZ and Pokemon. It doesn't even seem to get talk...

The new Demon Slayer movie. It's a huge box office hit. Thoughts?

Maybe I've been living under a rock, but even though Demon Slayer I know is pretty popular, I never thought it would do this well. Anyone seen it?

Re: Oldschool OVAs You Wish Were Completed

Well, there was a later Giant Robo TV series, wasn't there? I always thought the "preview" at the last episode of GR was more of a nod to its serial nature. Kinda like Star Wars starting at episode 4 originally--it was meant to evoke the feeling of old serials how you sort of jump in and o...
