Synopsis: Humans have created many stories. Joy, sadness, anger, deep emotion. Stories shake our emotions, and fascinate us. However, these are only the thoughts of bystanders. But what if the characters in the story have "intentions"? To them, are we god-like existences for bringing their story into the world? Our world is changed. Meet out punishment upon the realm of the gods. In Re:CREATORS, everyone becomes a Creator.

Re: Creators.... original... and sounds like it.... interesting potential, sort of wonder what they're gonna do with it... I've seen something along this line before, but can't remember it....of course, it is the basis of most religions/beliefs in that the 'gods' run our lives.. etc. The old Star Trek series had an episode on this 'Greek' affect.

It really looks promising in ep.1 out of 22, enough to develop All their worlds?:o

This one doesn't air till August? Is that correct? ... the concept could be interesting, same with many, it comes down to execution of the concept... even Disney has done similar stuff with animated characters coming to life in our 'real' world etc... but this sounds much better, them getting even, revenge for their character flaws, events etc... but August? is this just a teaser  then?

Then I question what that episode 1 was, which I watched on the 8th (2days ago).

 

The series looks nice so far, but I self also can't seem to remember where I've heard such a story before... (And no! Not that movie Pixels).

 

My only concern with series such as this is:

1. Can they actually explain and develop its story. (That is what I see as being the most difficult thing a original story has to do).

2. Will this end up like those western movies? (2 races come to earth, 1 seeks peace other seeks destruction).

3. The overall theme it may go towards? So far I know it has action. (good!) But... what else?

 

For which we all have to wait and see (if you follow this anime) I myself will give it a few episodes.

maybe Petti got its '8/4' premiere date wrong thinking August 4, instead of april 8 but streamed on Amazon Prime a day earlier... so the ep.2 release is today as scheduled, kinda reminds me to 'Cool World' film searching for their creators :P

well 2nd episode has a lot of talking, but also more character introductions

 

Despite its loveable action, I do feel myself quickly dozing off.
I understand this is going to be 22 episodes, so I have to get used to cliffhangers I guess.

Oh well, 1 more episode and if it's nice, I will follow for another 3 and afterwards make my decision on following it.

It's really not bad, but I still can't shake the feeling of something missing... Also, the search for similar series has pretty much filled my week so far  :lol:  I got a list!

Yeah, I was reading that date above in American format, not Euro or... does Japan follow that format of day first as well? Didn't think about it, wondered why a fall air date was listed here already. :wacko:

As for this one or any anime, it often seems that some of them require a longer buildup to the story, and I find it better to wait until a few eps are up... perferably dubbed if available... unless it's a bad dub.

you mean overall? if it's who created "Himegimi" telling by hints until ep.3, I say Sota from another future... Her current existence wasn't mediatic yet she knows him but he didn't, or else would be lame as MC encouraged to keep drawing <_<

Pretty much overall yea xD

 

Although, it is one of my problems with all series (as with many other people as well, I'm sure): Predicting what will happen. It is the idea to make viewers guess it, but for many series... they just keep following the same pattern.
In this case, he has something to do with it! (no doubt) but seriously the thought of having time travel being added in this? (by your guess), makes me want to drop it without hesitation!
Because that is for many series, the biggest joker card in getting away without having to explain a bunch of plot holes!

 

On to Episode 3! which showed

Spoiler
Also does not bold well for anything... so... good luck fighting your own creations!

 

Going to give it another 3 episodes, but for my taste, it's hanging by a thread.

Ok, so no holes yet... and after 3 eps, I don't see any.... and the future of Sota as a mangaka be it through time travel or whatever doesn't seem like a hole yet... so far the writing is original.... saving the exposition to later eps after the first one gets the action going to attract an audience. So far, so good... there were lots of holes developing in Attack on Titan... had to stop watching... maybe at the end of the season.. I couldn't stand all those holes... totally ignored by the writer.. especially that 'key'... oh well, in this anime, the whole concept is interesting in an esoteric way because it is said that we too are living in a holographic world... we are all thought-forms ourselves, (Hermetic maxim: 'as above, so below')... the hand puppets.. represent the veiled conscious mind... the subconscious is the hand within that extends out to the common body... fractal like... it would be interesting to see this aspect mentioned, but the writers probably aren't aware of it... just subconsciously... thus this concept for this anime.... though future eps will tell.

 

So far, so good... it's always a question of whether or not the writing can continue without creating a bunch of those 'holes'. So far, this reminds me of that magical girl project from last season i think it was... the one where those people playing a magical girl game could win enough points and actually become one in real life....only it was a trap from some outfit/group from another dimension... can't remember the name... seemed a perversion of the genre actually, which is common in the West these days. I hope this one doesn't go in that direction... Japan might be an American colony, but their culture hasn't been submerged... yet... nor dumbed down as much as ours has.... they still show some creativity.

Think you mean: Magical Girl Raising project? Didn't watch it, but I recall seeing the plot of it.

 

And on the thought of Japan becoming an American colony? well, they are as far away from it as Tokyo! ... wait a min... :lol:   joke of course.

 

South Korea has its ''live-action issues'', all those songs, all those drama series. They are average! but the music is all old used stuff, hailing from 1800-1990s and the series are a dime a dozen.

The only thing I notice changing lately is Americans animation series, which are getting more interesting yet also weird, such as series like: Gravity Falls, Adventure Time, Steven Universe.

Although, granted there has been many weirder series in the last few decades and classic, but I simply notice it increasing.

 

The main thing I see happening, is that at some point in time, we all are doing what the other is doing, same as what webcomic writers/artists, most problems being: Am I copying someone in story/style Yes or No? I say Yes, but everyone will always remain having his/her own interpretation of an idea, that does not mean, however, that many stories still look like someone else's creation in certain ways. It's impossible to avoid.

Yeah, that's the one... similar in how they played with the trope, not the '4th wall' break which this anime seems to have done in its own creative way of the 2d characters being brought into their mangaka's 3d world... sub thought forms into their larger thought form group... sort of interesting to consider... the expansion of archetypal energy flows etc. Anyway, so far, this one hasn't shown any perversion tactics, which seem all the rage in recent years... sort of how in past decades in other art forms from literature to film, the rise of the 'anti-hero' became all the rage... sort of reminds me of how Marvel used this as a trope itself... the 'dark' spiderman/superman etc.

 

Yeah, hard to avoid repetition of ideas... as they are essentially archetypes that rise and fall with civilizations as they rise and fall along the usual cycle of the 'ages'... gold, silver, copper, iron etc.... different terms sometimes used in different cultures around the world, but the same concept... the same pattern... which is why all nations are essentially merging at this point in terms of technology/society, enough for the NWO... same as the OWO, only the police state comes out of the closet... which is why so many, mostly here in the West, are 'outing' themselves... taking their final positions.. like in a lineup or queue, shoving each other for better positions, even if most of them are just sheep, to use the biblical analogy... or tools for herd control, and disposed of when no longer needed.

 

I remember having a similar idea in class with another once.. another time finding the same concept used by someone else for a project.... which again gets rather esoteric... as thoughts are all that exist... like a radio, we can tune in to other frequencies, though our 'dark shepherds' like to keep us on their control frequency... like cattle or sheep to again use that analogy from the past. Cleaning your 'machine' (GiTS) is a more modern variation on keeping your mind clean from all the pollution of society, govt etc... 'programming' etc from school to home to work etc.... all of which is a frequency trap... but there are nearly endless channels out there, which is why addicts love their drug of choice... let's them escape to other frequencies...

 

which brings me back to this anime.... all of this is out there that can be used as source material.. and I'm always wondering how much, if any, the writer accesses... I don't think any of them are esoterically inclined, so what gets through is usually by accident or in name only... style but no substance... but you never know... :ph34r:
