Re: AP 612 - Learnding

Even though I am a bit of an Animation buff (and have been for many years), Shirobako did give me and (especially) my sons an inside look on the Japanese Anime industry. Inside info that was much appreciated.

Late entry, I know.

I could use a Pod from Nier:Automata:

Re: AP 611 - Favorite KyoAnime

I am going to go with Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! ( Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions ) as my main pick. I could list Full Metal Panic or Violet Evergarden or Beyond the Boundary or even Haruhi, certainly. But all in all, Chunibyo came at just the right time for me and my then nascent anime-watchi...

Re: AP 610 - Favorite Foreigners

My favorite is the character Waver Velvet, the young (assumedly English) mage in Fate/Zero . He enters the grail war by feigning being the grandson to a couple of Japanese senior citizen locals, living in the city of the battle venue, using magic to supposedly charm these innocent bystanders into se...

Re: AP 609 - Summer Episode

Since this has become not only a trope in most anime series but almost obligatory, I tried to think of episodes of series where more than just the usual fanservice and usual tropes take place. Not an easy task. I do recall that the summer beach scene of Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusion s actually tak...

Re: AP 608 - Genre Subversion

The topic GIF was an immediate one that came to mind, Puella Magi Madoka Magica . In a similar vein but taking it in a different direction is Mahō Shōjo Ikusei Keikaku or Magical Girl Raising Project , which takes the subverted magical girl semi-trop-e and turns it into a Battle Royale. https://prox...

Re: AP 607 - Bad Dads (No Tuckers)

Given the exclusion of FMA's Shou Tucker, I nominate Gambino from Berser k, the adoptive father to the main character Guts. While he raised young Guts and taught him how to survive in a crap-sack world of death and mayhem, it did not stop him form later betraying that trust and pimping him out to be...

Re: AP 606 - Best Dad's

I'm going to name Maes Hughes from Full Metal Alchemist (both series). A great dad to his too-kawai daughter Elicia and a good, loving husband to his wife Gracia. Some might say he's overly fond of and doting upon his darling child, always willing to go off on a tangent to proclaim her abject cutene...

Re: AP 605 - Grew Out Of

I can only think of one, although I am certain there are others if I think a little longer. I first became a big fan of anime when I saw Macross/Robotech waaaay back when. Also like Battle Tech the tabletop RPG as well. But years later I kind of fell out with the genre of giant mecha. I tried to get...

Re: AP 604 - Grew on you

Well, one show comes to mind. I started watching the first episode of Log Horizon, and found it to be too derivative of SAO at the time and skipped it. Little did we know that Isekai would become its own genre in anime, right? But then I went back and began re-watching it a few months later, and got...
