Re: What are you Watching?

Blade of the Immortal (2019) redemption through second chances are a major theme of Blade of the Immortal and coincidentally this 2019 adaption is just that: a redemptive and more faithful adaptation from the unfinished and limply tame 2008 version. Blade of the Immortal was the first manga my youn...

Re: 1999/X x Let's Anime

Furthermore I think Rin Taro's knew that those last 3 things I mention above mattered more to him here than staying faithful to sources. The film itself seems aware of its own ambitions and therefore critically speaking I'd say it achieves its goals--however alienating to wider audiences those goals...

Re: 1999/X x Let's Anime

Well, I've never read it or seen the show. Im aware of them and have browsed the manga once long after seeing the film. It's just a matter of personal taste. I prefer things that keep themselves elusive and have hypercondensed storytelling. I can't stand shows that take time developing characters an...

Re: 1999/X x Let's Anime

hah! I've recently be re-obsessing about X 1999, as I've even made a CLAMP APPRECIATION THREAD the other day. to each their own opinion ofc, but it still holds up for me as an art film with genre pastiche, using the the basics of the manga's tale and themes to explore something more akin to a mood a...

CLAMP (Adaptations) Appreciation Thread

despite being a fan Rin Taro's X 1999 The Movie ever since it made its way to a US dvd release, I've been negligent on other CLAMP adaptations due to their incompleteness or reviews. Recently did a partial retrospect on a handful of titles that particularly interest me: RG Veda: I really loved the f...

Re: Gall Force - Your thoughts

I do enjoy Gall Force however. The theme of reincarnation and interspecies feuds are handled in an interesting way. It's a lot of fun.

Re: Gall Force - Your thoughts

eh it's probably just coincidental but I pick up on similar visual cues, mostly the staging posturing from each respective series' villains when aboard their spaceships.

Re: Gall Force - Your thoughts

Yeah I think the series is dope. I especially like Earth Chapter for it's "boots on the ground" approach to futuristic warfare and Eternal Story for all the weird killer space monsters. Certain elements overlap with Fight Iczer 1 and even though I do prefer Iczer, I revisit them every coup...
