Re: AP 559 - Q. Hollywood

I think a full remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni would awesome. I'm a big fan of the original show, but as with most DEEN productions it has a tendency to look kinda janky a lot of the time. I'm not holding any hopes up for a remake to actually happen though. It's a 50-episode show and I doubt mos...

Re: AP 556 - Q. Studios

I won't say Studio Ghibli, because that's a bit like the free space on a bingo board; a given. There's no clear top choice for me, but Trigger is definitely a favourite. They always do something completely off-the-wall that's enjoyable and memorable for its weirdness. The only other studio that I ca...

Re: AP 555 - Q. Pilgrimage

Well, my main destination would be the village of Hinamizawa from Higurashi (minus the insanity and death). It's probably one of the largest anime locations that you can actually visit in real life since it's closely based on the entire village Shirakawa-Go in Gifu prefecture. Another would be one o...

Re: AP 554 - Q. Special Move

Might be a boring and obvious choice, but the bankais from Bleach are pretty awesome. You know things are gonna get awesome when someone says/whispers/yells that one word. For that matter the resureccións of the arrancar are awesome as well, for the same reasons. As for favourite bankais and resurec...

Re: AP 553 - Q. Anger

Oh boy. Suzaku from Code Geass is the first thing that comes to mind. He made me angry from the get-go and I remained angry with him for the rest of the entire series. And I'm not the only one. I know he's almost universally hated by those who've watched this series. Though it's quite easy to hate a...

Re: AP 552 - Q. the Unsung

I'd say Shiki is a pretty underrated show. Sure, it does have some really sily character designs, but the story is a solid horror affair with some really interesting themes and undertones that slowly ramp up over the course of the show until it all climaxes in a huge clusterfuck at the end. Easily o...

Re: AP 549 - Q. Why?

Anime just tends to go places other media doesn't. Or it tackles fairly normal subjects in new and unusual ways. Like, where else would you find a show about a punk schoolgirl with a sword-sized half-scissor fighting a school lead by a haughty swordswoman, both of which wear highly revealing transfo...

Re: AP 548 - Q. Openings

Anything by Man with a Mission generally strikes a chord with me, like the OP for Nanatsu no Taizai S1, Inuyashiki and the ED for B: the Beginning. They're just really good at getting an emotion across with their music, usually HYPE. Another one that I love is the third OP from My Hero Academia, for...

Re: AP 546 - Q. Tear Jerkers

Hmm, the last two anime that I can remember making me cry would be My Hero Academia and Hanasaku Iroha, both for very different reasons. Spoilers below Macademia does it by showing really likeable characters going beyond their limits to achieve their goals, and it does it in such a great way that it...

Re: AP 547 - Q. Droppings

Beatless and Clockwork Planet were both insufferably cliché and heartless. If it doesn't feel like the team cares a wit about their own show then how am I supposed to? Then you've got things like Dies Irae and Jikan no Shihasha that at least feel like they've got a modicum of passion put into them, ...
