Ah, Part 4 of the final Tamayura series... just watched part 3... last half of which was excellent... the creator is really peaking in talent here... taking the usual high schoolers facing graduation to the norm with the rest of the cast, but with the main character of Fuu, really taking it to the next level of character development... rarely seen, rather impressive second half of that film, as it touches upon nearly all the best bits of drama in the usual upbeat series as she deals with the death of her father... the use of the music etc is very well done through the series but the dramatic bits are really the best, like the creators work on Aria, especially at the end... this series has had those moments throughout in her character... and that final instalment shouldn't disappoint... he never has... actually, he seems to be getting better with each new series.
Going through the list, there is so much repetition of the same concepts... and you can see this is many American films as well like X-men and all the superhero plotlines... even in our elections, looking for someone that isn't one of the 'usual suspects'... if Bernie Sanders fails, it seems Jesse Ventura and Cynthia McKinney might run independent, which would be interesting.
Most of these concepts keep repeating.... touching upon esoteric transition issues as I've mentioned before, it's interesting to see what part of the concepts make it through the minds of the artists/creators of anime/film/tv/manga/books etc.
Oh, that 'Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn' seems like a kids anime/storyline from the picture and discription above... based on a concept by Ghost in the Shell creator.... but another mangaka is doing the manga, and this anime... so I'll check it out to see what concept he's working with... hopefully, it's not too childish in execution of the original concept.
Just saw the preview.... seems very kid oriented.... like a magical girl thing.... with the usual 'Lolita' aspect of Japanese culture showing through as usual.... can anyone explain this apparent addiction of otaku's to the whole Lolita thing??? I know it's not just me: http://www.japantime...on-schoolgirls/
This seems like another example of what's called, esoterically, as the 'bidding' process, utilizing free will to get people, seemingly young dudes that grow into men... to get them to take one step after another into the 'dark side'... the USA does this in video games ALOT!.... all the violence is totally acceptable in society, though a few complain about it... nothing is ever done about it... and isn't that typical nearly everywhere? In Japan, this Lolita thing seems another example of acculturation of evil in society... the ponerization of pyschopaths... to make us like them... predators... just a variation of the type... aggressive or passive, and this Lolita thing seems along the passive variation, though Abe wants to push Japan back into the fascist path again as we here in the USA/EU/Israel/Saudi, et al have focused on for a very long time.
As usual, using Bernays propaganda routine.... this is so typical... manipulation of the public mind... keep the sheeple simpleminded and clueless.... the 'dumbing down process'... 'divide and conquer'... distraction, obfuscation etc... the herding process as we approach the transition... to the apocalypse... too bad these anime creators don't dig a little deeper along this line of thought. There is so much more they could explore!... before it's too late.
Oh well... I'll still take a look at it, but Ghost in the Shell it doesn't seem to be... especially not an expanded take on the concept.
