Re: AP 582 - Where do you get it?

All of the above? We have subscriptions to Netflix, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Amazon Prime — and those streaming services seem to satisfy at least 90% of our family needs. Then we also have Netflix DVD (Blu-ray) service for a lot of the physical media needs. AND if we like something good enough, ...

Re: AP 581 - Keep em Coming!

There are a ton of anime series I’d like to see additional seasons of. A few come to mind immediately. First, I and my kids have been waiting (and waiting) for another season of Ars Nova : Arpegio of Blue Steel , And likewise, they always want more Girls Und Panzer (although I personally think that ...

Re: AP 580 - Christmas

I can’t think of a Japanese Anime that does not have Christmas as a somewhat integral part of its set up more than does the Amagami series — or at least, its the first one that came to mind. The back story to the lead protag Junichi was that his heart was broken after being stood up by a girl he had...

Re: AP 579 - Just Stop

Yeah, nothing to add. The first thing I thought of was the second series of Last Exile mentioned above—although I did not hate it, I did not think it was necessary. And Haruhi Suzamiya’s Endless Eight p*ssed me off so bad that I came to hate both seasons altogether. I tell my son to never mention it...

Re: AP 578 - Eateries

When I think of food in an anime it has to be Shokugeki no Soma. So I would like to visit the Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute and sample their dishes. Food-gasms galore! https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d3/Shokugeki_no_Souma_Volume_1.jpg OR... if it has to be a restaurant, then perhaps J...

Re: VGP 313 Discussion Topic: Studio Closures

I consider an acquisition by a big pub like EA or Activision to be no different than a closure. Sooner or later it happens.
Thus I bid a fond farewell to Obsidian, swallowed into Microsoft like so many others.

Re: AP 576 - Rose Tinted

Before the 90’s a lot of Japanese animation had evolved to quite detailed and elaborate artwork, BUT the number of tween frames were severely lacking, barely sufficient in number and made for choppy action. But with the increased use of computer assisted animation tools, their anime rapidly improved...

Re: AP 575 - First Impressions

Last Exile had me right off the start with their obvious love for flight. I was immediately hooked by its skyscape visuals, epic battles and steampunkish aesthetic. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1bV9dKEFnPc/Tpj2A39DC3I/AAAAAAAAAew/2OAeb2EeLsU/s1600/last_exile.jpg I could name more, but that is enough fo...

Re: AP 574 - Art Style

MainerBert already mentioned one of my all-time favs, Range Murata. So I was at a loss for adding to that one. I loved Blue Submarine 6 and the two Last Exile series. I then recalled that I really like Ufotable’s take on the Fate series. They take the visuals and character designs from the iconic vi...

Re: AP 573 - Show Music/Vehicles

I once dreamed of having my own gundam or Varitech mecha, but they're not really practical for transportation unless it is to go to battle. I have mentioned before in the topic about anime worlds to live in that I would love to travel about the colonies and other locations of Cowboy Bebop in somethi...
