Re: What are you Watching?

That's true! Shirobako had a slightly bigger fanbase due to the nerd content, probably. :lol: At least we're getting more of that, apparently!

Re: What are you Reading?

With less to do and more aimless free time in the past year (we all know why) I've had time to read a bunch of manga. I finished Again!! a few months ago (liked it) and I'm currently progressing through Bakuman and We Were There. Also started reading Kabi Nagata's manga work, and have tried out a f...

Re: What are you Watching?

I did watch Sakura Quest & I remember thinking it was pretty good! I think much like Shirobako, it had a small yet dedicated viewership, but somehow never really got noticed by a bigger audience. Which is a real shame, both of those series have a nice women-heavy cast of characters that are for the ...

Re: What are you Watching?

I'm not even saying Shinkai is bad. It's clear he's very talented, and he shows it in every film he makes. And, he's very successful right now, and deserves to be. I'm just saying I'm not really his target audience, but I wish I were because I can see he's very good. Oh totally! I def don't feel li...

Re: Is there a story behind the Armitage III: Poly-Matrix dub?

I have foggy memories, but I believe the plan was to release this in select theatres in the US, and the thinking was they could maybe spruce up the release with a few celebs that they could *afford*. This was what I always assumed, since I don't think I've ever read anything official to confirm it....

Re: What are you Watching?

For me, I think Your Name. worked because it was 1. gorgeous looking, 2. had an interesting premise, and 3. wasn't too hung up on explaining all the finer details. Weathering With You was honestly a step backwards for me, because it felt like it was an idea for a series of music videos they had to w...

Re: New Slam Dunk anime film announced

Re: New Slam Dunk anime film announced

I hope so, too. If Toei is smart, they'll do their best to make it look really slick & cool
...BUT its Toei so who knows. 😅
