Considering how particular your tastes and anime-choosing habits are, I'd be more surprised if you actually found the season interesting laugh.gif

And what's VVV?

VVV= Valvrave.

A hilariously over-the-top self-aware deconstruction of gundam franchise.

Oh, OK. Color me surprised then, as I would've never thought anyone would see that show as "the only worthwhile show of the season", or a worthwhile show at all laugh.gif In any case, I've already talked enough of what I think of it, it's pretty much the same entertainment value as watching a trainwreck.

Still, tastes vary I suppose.

Yeah it does bring up some interesting points, and I am not TOTALLY against dubs. However like the pro-sub dude in the video I would prefer subs over dubs any day. That being said in the early days of watching anime when I could only find VHS, and they were all dubbed I got so used to the English voices I can't watch it in Japanese (ie. Slayers the Movie, Ranma 1/2). I've seen EVA dubbed first, and I thought it was OKAY... but I could never get used to Asuka's voice. After seeing some of it subbed, I prefer the Japanese voices. I'm a really fast reader too, so it's hard for me to understand when people say they can't read the lines at the bottom of the screen because it goes by too fast.
Yes there are exceptions to that, the dialogue in Tatami Galaxy does go by in super speed and it's definitely challenging to keep up. I also miss a lot of words in the "black pauses" in Monogatari (that wouldn't be said out loud anyway).

It makes me sad, but it's inevitable.... he had to retire someday. sad.gif Hes 72 and he's had an amazing career that inspired many others. I look forward to seeing his last film, the lead is voiced be Hideaki Anno (lol). I've also enjoyed some other offerings from Ghibli not directed by him, like From Up on Poppy Hill and Arrietty. Yeah maybe they were missing some of his magic, but they were still really really good.

Hayao Miyazaki Retires From Making Feature Films

http://www.animenews...g-feature-films

To be honest, I'm more glad than sad about him retiring. Hayao Miyazaki is obviously the most successful and renowned Japanese anime film director and I certainly praise and admire him for that. On the other hand, because of this fame, it doesn't really give much opportunity for his peers to shine internationally. If you ask your average non-otaku, they will likely know who Miyazaki is as well as what "legendary" works he has done. However, if you ask about Miyazaki's peers like Hideaki Anno, Makoto Shinkai, Mamoru Oshii, Satoshi Kon, Mamoru Hosoda, and/or Akiyuki Shinbou, etc... the same person may have heard/seen the works these directors have done but couldn't for the life of them match the director to their respective work.

While Miyazaki certainly has the "magic touch" in many of his films (though I tend to like Shinkai works better), hopefully his retirement opens the door for the international non-otaku community to be more receptive of other directors and works. Hopefully it stops the whole "oh it's not Miyazaki so it must be bad" logic among some and ideally lessen the alienating of anime fans or otakus in the international community.

This will be the post for my season first impressions:

Kyoukai no Kanata - decent premise, boring school setting, good-looking animation, and decent-looking backgrounds (surprising given the studio). This could've been a nice guilty pleasure series. If. Only if a different studio made it. As it stands, we get a typical KyoAni moeblob that will likely just use the setup as a wallpaper and spend the rest of the time on otaku pandering. A shame really - first 15 minutes or so were quite good. Rank: FAIL

BlazBlue - as expected, a cheap tie-in with little value. Mediocre animation and script, and basically feels like an animated "story mode" from the game. Not that I expected much from a fighting game spin-off, but still unfortunate. Also, a shame GONZO didn't get to work on this.

Well I have to agree with you on being warry about it being KyoAni doing this series. Although I have to say that the female lead seems kind of like Nagato from the Haruhi series with the glasses, and minus the alien portion.

*sigh* If only they did the Nagato Yuuki spinn-off story though. Well I guy can dream can't he? laugh.gif

There are ALWAYS a lot of harem series smile.gif

Just about every KyoAni show is essentially the same. I haven't seen any decent "staple" shows from them since the original Haruhi, and I generally hate their writing style.

Interesting stuff happening in the anime business world right now. Was just announced that Space Dandy will be receiving a (roughly) simultaneous TV broadcast between Japan, Asia, and NA (US and maybe Canada?). Space Dandy will actually be airing in America on Toonami english dubbed before the Japanese broadcast, which kinda blows my mind.

Really hope this works out to be successful for Funimation and all those involved since it could lead to more of these simultaneous releases. Though I imagine working on it and working with the japanese productions is gonna suck butt.

It's better than that. There was quality action in each episode so far, a well executed story-line, and a solid twist - if only in its scale - in the 4th episode. But yeah, KyoAni NEEDS to evolve their character designs already.

Not too surprising really - I mean Cowboy Bebop's like one of 3-4 shows everyone is crazy about Stateside, makes sense for them to capitalize on that. No telling if Dandy turns out to be as palatable for the typical non-anime-fan Western audience, though.

I can't recall feeling this bad, noxious and sick in years...
I had to skip ahead several times throughout the episodes since I couldn't bare to watch that horror show without almost getting convulsions. =( Before it had ended I was crying.

Usually it's called 'conditioning' of the mind, step by step, until you are willing to accept even more BS in your life, more control etc, and it usually starts innocently at birth, as one generation passes the 'programming' on to the next generation, without realizing WTF they are doing, nor why. This type of conditioning isn't always 'bad', some of it can be used for 'good'(as we learn the most in life from our worst experiences)as a preparation for the stresses of life. or as nudges to look at things we wouldn't normally look at, though if you spend too much time disassociating into fantasy, your mind starts disconnecting from reality... ie the whole NEET situation that can occur with young or old people working throughout their lives, rising families and all the usual stuff, only to wonder late in life or earlier that something feels wrong... this is the sign that you may be 'waking up'. ph34r.gif If so, the Matrix will either try to keep you asleep or encourage you to 'be like them', join the 'dark side of the Force' etc... or just use the usual distraction devices that entertainment is good at, religion has been doing it much longer of course, as has politics etc. All of this is called 'vectoring' the subject into those 'dead ends' such as found with Neo in the Matrix films... 'you know where that street goes Neo'. If they can't get you to 'join the team', then they will attempt to vector you back to sleep or into various dead ends.

You get used to this stuff as you grow up and stop paying attention to it, you get 'conditioned' to it, which is useful in video games in training potential soldiers/assassins to kill, maim, kidnap and torture without conscience consideration... step by step until you find yourself doing things in life that you never would have even considered beforehand... step by step until you find yourself stuck in 'quicksand' in your mind which trains the body to ignore those cues from conscience... training for the 'dark side' of the ego self. If they can't you you numb, the will try to scare you so that you ignore it and pretend it doesn't exist.

Too 'deep' for an explanation? This stuff has always been a part of life here in what some have referred to as one dimension of 'Purgatory'... in which history seems to repeat and repeat it's lessons until we individually learn... then the Choice nexus point arrives... remember that scene in Harry Potter? 'Its our choices that matter, Harry'... or something like that. You choose to notice these clues or you do not, just like Neo in the Matrix, by free will you choose to follow one side or the other, it's just that the 'dark side' can and will use any means necessary to get you to choose their side of the cosmic equation, whether you know and understand that choice or not, this is how countries become empires and get their people to fight and die for them... same BS routine throughout history, and it starts with these little steps of mental conditioning, indoctrination etc... It's used in every field, look at all the BS in economics or science as they try to sell you their crap.

You stumbled upon a glitch in the program, you noticed the programming for a moment, where you go from here is up to you... the 'rabbit hole' awaits each of us when we are ready, and from there Alice likes to go through the Looking Glass, the next level of the 'game'.

We are rapidly approaching the end of this one which is said to reset next year, and if you look around in the world today, you will see signs or clues everywhere, in anime, tv, film, books, politics, schools, business, finance... the same fractal patterns, like karma, filter in and through everyone everywhere to get our attention... pain is the fastest and surest method known... perhaps you've noticed? dry.gif

I remember having that reaction a long time ago when I saw the film "Pet Cemetary" by Stephen King... it didn't seem to bother most people, but that was many years ago and you can see that horror, rape, pillage, murder and mayhem are now the norm in most formats of 'entertainment', which reflects our reality of empire-building by the Western partners in crime, thus the reason none of the nations spied on say much of anything... they are all in on it... same with the fiat money that has the spigot running full blast these days.... they are preparing to 'pull the rug out' any moment now... hard to tell how many weeks/days before they do so... but Mother Nature is inbound in the Spring or sometime next year anyway... so.... whatever. If you look, you will notice this pattern everywhere... just follow the rabbit. unsure.gif

I've got to say, this season has been VERY saturated so far. Lots of good shows and a few more decent shows - one of the best seasons in the past few years, I think.


I'm a bit surprised there isn't a thread about one of if not the best show of this season - Kyousougiga - on the forum, but I'm too lazy to make one. biggrin.gif For those who haven't been following it, I highly suggest it - it's deep but not pretentious or obtuse, and it's surprisingly original in many ways despite being VERY "anime" in the classical sense. Makes me feel glad they haven't forgotten how to make shows like these.

Just watched the whole Tamayura series again... yes, it is that good... a very mature feel to the piece... reminds me of some of Adachi's one-shot mangas... that nostalgic look back at the past within the present that reflects it... and the soundtrack's use of the songs in various formats really is nice by the end of the last season.

The main character reminds me of the Lain girl... only the subject matter isn't esoteric, but the basic reality check that a close death has on one, especially if young... as if time stops or at least slows down to slow motion until you see or feel it's presence frame by frame.
