Re: What are you Watching?

Still going through D'Eon. Story and characters are good but the execution lacks a certain momentum. Also wish the more grotesque aspects weren't shied away from. The zombified/possessed humans lack the level of detail and design to make them truly spooky. Getter Robo Arc eps 1-3 (dubbed) Highly ent...

Re: Uzumaki: Adult Swim's adaptation the Junji Ito manga

This is probably the only anime-related animated work I'm looking forward to (other than pining for the chance of a second cor of Dorohedoro), and I don't even believe it'll ever get finish now with all the lockdowns Japan is and will continue to face. The live action adaptation just wasn't sufficie...

Re: What are you Watching?

Carol (OVA) Ehhh. A comic monster which swallows music and sound is a neat concept with great potential but instead it's hardly consequential is this otherwise generic fantasy anime. Le Chevalier D'Eon Occult. Conspiracy. Gender bender. Squash buckling period piece. Very early in, but so far so good.

@DKPOP not trying to dismiss your opinions of course ;) Berserk Redux - a four film fan edit comprising both theatrical release and series footage to tell a more well rounded and developed story. Side characters are given more room to breathe and grow. All around excellent and the best way to revis...

Re: What are you Watching?

I'm actually good with how it tied everything up. The thing with Evangelion is that it's supposed to be a let down, but this seems to conclude everything. Maybe its Anno way of getting past angsty Anno from 25 years ago when he made this. I mean to me the Rebuilds are their own thing, and this film...

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: What are you Watching?

I like feeling confounded and out of my element with films, that fish out of water feeling I get when I watch Nadesico The Movie without ever having seen or being interested in the series itself for instance is a similar experience. Plus I'm more into anime for cutting edge animation. That's why mos...

Re: What are you Watching?

Revolutionary Girl Utena The Movie - this is my entry point and will likely suffice as just enough from this particular IP. It was however an amazing experience of arresting jaw-dropping and fluidly animated beauty which feels very Clamp (but is actually Be-Papas). It's so rich in symbolism and them...

Mad Bull 34 Absolute garbage. Lots of fun. Don't you mean: "Absolute Fun. Lots of Garbage?" :lol: so true :!: ----------------- watched the first episode the current Getter Robo show. Despite being a Getter Robo fan and bigger broader fan of Go Nogai's works, I think I'm going to binge th...
