Re: AP 597 - New Anime!

I would like to see a real anime series of the manga Mahōtsukai Kurohime . It is fairly old, by this point, but I recent recalled it fondly (believe it or not). https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/0/0a/Kurohime_cover.png/220px-Kurohime_cover.png I would also be interested in a series tha...

Re: VGP 325 Discussion Topic: Racing!

I'm going to go with the Colin McRae Rally series -- now the Dirt and Dirt Rally series. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110810170135/cmr/images/8/82/Colin_mcrae_rally-front.jpg https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fconsole-tribe.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2016%2F04%2Fdirt-rally....

Re: AP 596 - Conventions

I went to one (Animazement), years ago. I plan to take my teenagers to it this year if I can manage the scheduling for us.


My ex was a big Star Trek fan, so she got me to go to few Trek conventions. It was fun but burned me out on that scene for a long time.

Re: AP 594 - Best Quotes

I can think of a couple of quotes in Anime that stand out (there are others, but this one is a classic): http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-w7cdow5L0vk/VFZD8Ykk9zI/AAAAAAAAAjk/xMV2R8Z-LhM/s1600/okabe3.png (in reference to:) https://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/285/653/765.jpg Oh, and then there ...

Re: AP 593 - Gateways for Others

Yes, I agree, Cowboy Bebop. It will draw a lot of first timers in with great characters and stories.
But there are a number of movies that will bring them in as well. Your Name is a great one. The Miyazaki movie’s (Studio Ghibli) are another.

Re: AP 592 - WTF Anime

<SPOILERS> When Kaede, the “good girl”, suddenly goes psycho, ala Fatal Attraction, in the show Shuffle! . Batsh*t crazy! Tries to assault Asa with murderous intent, the girl the main guy ended up choosing. I won’t forget that one anytime soon. http://badger11.animeblogger.net/image/shuffle/shuffleE...

Re: AP 590 - West to East

There was an anime movie adaption of Batflack that was done in the same vein as the Animatrix film: a montage/anthology of Batflack stories told by different directors and studios. It had mixed results, and I recall it being “meh”. Normally I’d be all over anything that combines Batflack/The Dark Kn...

Re: AP 589 - Favorite Genre

My favorite genre in Anime matches my favorite genre in fiction and other media: Science Fiction and Fantasy. I enjoy various sub-genres as well, and also enjoy cross-overs with other genres, such as Isekai where Fantasy is often made possible through SciFi tech. And I am always a sucker for the var...

Re: AP 588 - CG Shows

CG is just a tool in the animator’s toolbox. Unfortunately too many use this tool as a crutch for bad animation. It is funny that you show the 2016 Berserk anime series in the GIF above as an example of bad CG anime — for it IS very bad, certainly, enough to detract from their adaption of a great ma...
