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...

Re: AP 587 - Crowdfunding

I don’t have a problem with the idea of crowd-funding, not any more than any other modern internet-enable facility. My wariness is with the current implementations, particularly when they are concentrate through certain Big Tech monopolies that are now exerting their socio-political views upon their...

Re: AP 586 - Winter 2018/19

Honestly, except for perhaps some continuing series, this Winter’s season for anime is offering little that I am looking forward to. We will give a few a look, but so far there is little to get my hopes up for. Quite unlike much of 2018, when we had a lot of good new series launched. Conversely, as ...

Re: AP 584 - The Very Best 2018

The year 2018 had a lot of very good, entertaining anime. We had a lot of new seasons or a second series to good anime from previous years, but while many were entertaining, most proved to me to be less satisfying — so I will not mention them. Instead I want to point out some good, if not great anim...
