@bocam: wait what's it about?
radical intro regardless
From what they've said, it's mostly side stories not from Okabe's POV. I'm pretty sure the writer of 999 and VLR worked on the story.
It may also lead into the movie.
wonder if this'll have the stuff from suzuha's perspective, specifically some of the things they did in the manga; show the dystopia wrought by SERN and what not.
Why did I know what that video was going to be before I clicked it?
Been a while since I been here. Anyway, here a interesting show about girls trying to save there school by becoming idols.
So far the characters are colorful and has some nice drama to it.
What happened to the plethora of action shows like Naruto and Bleach?
Did that genre die out? I am an avid modern anime fan, but I wish I had a serious show to watch every week, alongside the shows about cute girls doing cute shit.
Anyway, has there been any word on how long the mecha(?) show by the people who did FMA will be? That looked really interesting.
@azurath: It could be that Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece have kinda taken over that part of anime genre and it pretty hard to make something new. Personally, I think that type of genre will come back since there is too many cute girl shows now and many are dropping in quality.
JoJo is so good. The manga art is legendary as it is but adding color to it brings the funk into a whole new level, the rhythm is the bass and the bass is the treble. If I said it once I'll say it again: Go! Go! Zeppeli! Speaking of manly cartoons Ashita no Joe is fantastic. Probably my favorite main character in a sports anime ever. I've thought about watching the J-drama but something about that classic 70's art style I find oddly endearing.
I'm going to make an incredibly bitchy post now, so if you're not into that you might as well look away now!
Panning stills and speedlines? How in the world is this even allowed to be in theaters? This just sad AIC A.S.T.A, this is such a new low that I can't be anything but annoyed. It's not even low movie quality, it's barely good TV quality.
Ugh, just ugh.
Full moon tonight, and out of sheer coincidence, I was driving toward it while it was right on the horizon, making it look eerily huge and beautiful.
...and I only mention this because of the Persona 3 Movie website, which they've already said probably won't be updated until spring. Still though, I did what I've been doing every full moon for the past eight months or so- play the Persona 3 soundtrack in my car. I always forget how much I love that CD- I think that song "Want to be Close" is my favorite- partially because it kinda reminds me of Detana!! TwinBee, but also because it reminds me that the moment in Persona 3 FES where you start exploring Gekkoukan High and that music starts playing is the moment I knew I was going to love that game, and god damn it, I was right.
I finished Honto ni Atta! Reibai Sensei the past weekend. Not the prettiest anime around. I'd say it's a tiny step above web flash animation, but damn if I didn't find it funny. The humor is similar in format to Gintama or Cromartie High School, but in only 5 minute chunks. Shows that short can be hit-or-miss and Reihai Sensei is no different. Some episodes gave me a good chuckle while others...well, they're over in 5 minutes so it's not that difficult.
I've also started Shinrei Tantei Yakumo. I'm 4 or 5 into it. It's not bad. A little slow so far but each episode contains a single case. There is a back story that is building up, too with mysterious characters lurking in the shadows. It's too early to say either way, but I was in the mood for something low on fighting with some paranormal investigating. I was going to watch some more XXXholic, but I decided to try this instead. I'm not upset.
I watched some more Naruto Shippuden over the weekend, too. I'm still at 247 out of 300. Damn me if you will, but I like it. Not as much as One Piece, but damn it, I like it and I like Fairy Tail, too. It's hard to gauge what's "cool" on the internet these days. I've long since resigned myself to being uncool. Hell, I was going to anime conventions when it was still called "Japanimation" and whether or not a show was cool wasn't in question. Every show was uncool and people responded, "You still watch cartoons?" Times change and now people have opinions. Just as how music tastes used to define someone to their peer group, anime does within the viewing community. I'm simple and a soft touch, so I am always going to be uncool.
This could turn out either really awesome or reeeeeeally shitty.
Persona is too big of a series to be cheap on.
You sure about that?
Oh and thanks to everyone for the suggestions a week or so back. I'm goingt make my way through Psycho Pass and Chihayafuru, have already caught up to Love Live.
Oh man, it's not all bad, remember that time there were TWO CHIES. Those were the days.
Anime companies are the master of going cheap where its gets hard to keep up the budget and quality when they need to farm out a few episodes in the middle to fourth string companies to complete the work. It is part of the reason why I am a big fan of keeping series and seasons under 12 episodes.
@metalsnakezero: It's not about messing up, more about AIC A.S.T.A's lack of animation talent. It shows in just about everything they do, including the Aura movie trailer I linked earlier in this thread. That trailer looks like a mediocre TV show and it's insane that it's airing in theaters.
I have very low standards for animation quality but this season's Da Capo III has had enough blunders that even I have taken notice. Characters are consistently off-model, large portions of each episode are composed of ultra-close-up still frames of a character's face/hair/naughty bits, and there have been several other issues like a character "teleporting" between 2 different locations in the same scene.
@cloudenvy: chee it hertz to liv
@toowalrus: Still makes me laugh. I remember there being a scene early on where the team are at Junes and Yosuke keeps disappearing, I think they forgot to draw him in.
Shinsekai Yori manga getting an official translation over the novel is a huge bummer. It's got lots of fanservice that kind of ruins it. (I wonder if it'll even be legal to own in the UK) I feel like it'll sell poorly and we'll never get the novel.
I don't know if it has been discussed here yet, but what are everyone's feelings on Fairy Tail ending?
I personally have no attachment to the series, but I can understand why people would be fucking pissed about it. It is also apparently mid-arc, which if true, is a pretty big slap in the face to fans. Production costs are really high, and not everyone can keep up, but I always saw Fairy Tail as "the next big thing". I was actually surprised when I found out it is a relatively old series.
Soul Eater, Naruto, Bleach, and now Fairy Tail are all rumored to be ending soon, so what's next for the Shonen genre?
My two initial thoughts are:
- "Wait, Fairy Tail is still going?" which I say in jest because anyone who has been around fandom knows series like this run forever which loses all sense of progression and meaning for everyone but the hard core fans.
- "Wait, Fairy Tail is ending??" It always felt to me that there were too many of the "juggernaut series" where Fairy Tail seemed like the smallest of the bunch.
In other news, I am eagerly waiting for Railgun S! Please don't suck!!
@azurath: The manga is ending, or just the anime adaption?
I read it weekly a long time ago, but just got bored with it over time. It's a super generic battle shonen, even as someone who enjoys One Piece a ton I thought the power of friendship stuff got far too ridiculous. Like Rave it started promising but personally I think they both got too convoluted and tiring. I've heard a lot of complaints about deus ex machina wins and powerups too. When I stopped reading I remember there being Gerard overload.
It's quite a popular series, so I guess people are freaking out over this?
Edit: Seems like it's only the anime that's ending. That's not really that much of a big deal in the grand scheme of things. Means they won't be blowing their budget on filler since the anime is apparently catching up quickly.
One Piece is still running, so shonen battle manga is set for the next 10+ years. Jump have been trying to push Toriko too.
