Oh my…

I should be the one to apologize. First of all, sorry my unpleasant attitude. My shitty internet is killing me and it has just come. It wasn't there like three days. But unfortunately, it will go soon again from what I hear . ;_; Probably, general problem but unfortunately I won't be online two or three days as well, please excuse me! And this shit can go any minute, I should be fast haha.

I'm on the 25th episode right now and it's amazing. Everything is so good, really great and touching story about friendship. Another friend of mine expect me to reply him when I've finished the series as well, so when I've finished the series I'll post you a good comment! I promise but at least 8 for me right now.

And as for WTM, you're absolutely right. Even though, its audience is children, its series are so mature and heartwarming. Shame that series like Aria not catching this beauty. I'm so angry at Aria, what an overrated series is that. Glad we share same thought. :) It bored me to death and it's repetitive as hell. And its OST is so average that you can count as bad, story and characters as well. Really, don't think it deserves its rating. Akage no Anne should be there but unfortunately it's not. ;_; Really, I'm so angry at Aria, it gave me nothing. And Aria is not mature at all, I don't think this one is maturity, this one is pure moe, not maturity. And slice of life is really lively and beautiful section, not boring one. Aria ruined my view for slice of life section. I hate Aria so much, it can go to hell haha.

WTM series should be there, not series like Aria in my opinion.

And by the way, your list design is so cute. :3 Kiki. <3 Did you make it yourself? It looks pretty good haha.

*Puts on white gloves* Jef Costello was cool, calm, and collected. Atmosphere is really the only word that came to mind. It was good stuff except for all the bird chirping lol. That was getting to me after a while. I laughed though when the dude was listening in and that's all he could hear. I haven't seen too many French movies so I can't really compare it to much. A Prophet was a good one. Have you seen anything else by this director? I wonder if any of those are worth checking out.

Kikuchi is enjoying retirement since he's 84 years old. He's still credited for the music in a long running TV movie franchise that gets a new installment every year. But it's probably just recycled stuff at this point. He's still looking great and got a well deserved award recently.

No idea how to grade Princess Iron Fan. That felt really long and some of the background noise was obnoxious heh. Plus Chinese on top of that. Eh...

Perfect Blue is my top choice for Kon movies and I probably like Paranoia Agent the most overall. I think I've seen mostly all of his work now.

Rose of Versailles is like fine vine. The DVD viewing was sweet.

The first movie is excellent. It's a different beast than the second movie, more of an action/mystery vibe than a thriller. It's one of my favorite Oshii movies for sure though, I consider movies 1&2 to be the pinnacle of the franchise. The third movie... it's fine I guess, but I was very disappointed. New characters and it doesn't feel like Patlabor. Even if it didn't have the Patlabor name attached and the potential disappointment that could bring since it's so different, it's still not a very good movie. I'm mostly indifferent to it.

The Griffin arc in Patlabor TV is very good, I think you're coming up on it. Probably my favorite bit of the TV series.

Black Jack has some dark chapters, but also some light-hearted ones. The tone of the series never changes, but it's incredibly versatile in terms of it's content and subject matter.

I haven't seen much Black Jack anime. Just a few episodes of the 2004 tv series, which I found kinda mediocre as an adaption of the material. What Black Jack anime would you recommend? Also, are you interested in the new Young Black Jack tv anime coming out in the fall? I've never read the manga it's based on, but I'll probably watch it for at least a couple episodes if only because it's about Black Jack. ^^,

Adolf is a brilliant read. If the covers are a problem, maybe you can find copies of the old Viz printing (which I own), which has more...abstract covers than the Vertical printing. Though, they're so weird that they might still raise eyebrows, haha.

Yeah, Tezuka's body of work naturally has it's weaker entries. Hopefully most of the stuff DMP is funding on their kickstarters will be solid series, though. I've heard positive things about Captain Ken and Ludwig B, which begs the question of why I haven't read them yet since they're already sitting on my shelf. XD

KTKore | Aug 27, 9:40 AM
It's supposed to be more action-packed according to Toriyama. So maybe that'll make the Super adaptation more fun as well.

I really can't wait though. If only just to hear Ryusei Nakao as Freeza again. It's great that nothing about his performance as Freeza has changed over the years. It's as incredible as it always was.

Hey Hias.

If you plan on watching Hyougemono slowly, I'd advise you take a look at the summaries (written by yours truly) every now and then. Even when familiar with the Sengoku period this anime can be difficult.

Have a good one.

Building up them curves.

LumRanmaYasha | Aug 26, 8:42 PM
Indeed! Black Jack is my favorite of Tezuka's characters because of the fact that he uses a morally ambiguous facade of only doing things for money, but always has the best interests of good and helping good people at heart. That, and he has a very well-rounded character, who can do awesome things but still make mistakes every now and again, and his personal story of getting revenge on people who wronged him and his family is very interesting to see develop though it's only brought up in a couple of characters. A lot of people consider Black Jack Tezuka's best manga, and while I think Buddha and Phoenix are better, I do think it's his most accessible work for most people and a great read beginning to end (though the chapters aren't in order...but you know what I mean).

The only Tezuka manga I've read that I don't like at all is Atom Cat. I don't think it succeeded as a "reboot" of Astro Boy for a younger audience, but it's too safe and tame, and just not a very interesting read. It's only a volume long, so it's not a big stain on Tezuka's catalog, but it's the only work of his I've read to date that I felt like putting the book down after just one chapter, which was disappointing for me. I'm sure he also has other duds that I just haven't gotten to - even if he was the god of manga, he wasn't always perfect - though considering the lack of information on his minor works I won't know which those are until I read them.

LumRanmaYasha | Aug 26, 7:37 PM
Oh cool, you've started reading Black Jack! How do you like it so far?

KTKore | Aug 26, 7:21 PM
I'm going to see if I can skip out on the Freeza movie so that I could enjoy it more in Super. I doubt I'll be able to hold out, but I'm gonna TRY.

But yeah, there's a lot that's keeping me from enjoying Super as much as I feel like I should be enjoying it. But I'm really looking forward to the Freeza stuff.

HisokaHajime | Aug 25, 7:16 PM
The weekly aspect will be more fun once we're dealing with the unknown. It will lead to more speculation and discussion for sure. Right now it's mostly about what things look/sound like, and what was added in compared to the movie. Very much under the microscope because of what it is. I'm glad they're easing in like this though. Let them work out some of the kinks before reaching the new material. Episode 5 was the only one that was hard for me to find enjoyment in. Hopefully we've seen the last of that nonsense. I would take any reasonably good composer over this guy. Anyone who at least has a specific sound. This dude has tracks that sound like Rose of Versailles one minute and Sonic the Hedgehog the next. That said... the soundtrack was always going to be an issue to some degree. DB without Kikuchi sounds so alien to me. Modernizing his old tracks would have been the logical thing to do.

The Hikaru no Go manga isn't worth reading. The anime leave off in a nice place and the rest of the manga builds up to a bunch of stuff you never get to see play out. With a few odd decisions along the way. It left me shrugging and wanting more.

It's all a blur. What show are you most in need of rewatching?

Kellhus | Aug 25, 5:47 PM
I didn't like HnK 2 very much the first time I watched it because the story was so nonsensical and retconned. I went through it again with the Discotek releases and liked it a lot more the second time around though. There is some great new characters and the production values are very high. Amazing fights, some of the most hilariously over the top in the series. It has most of the stuff that made the first season great, minus a compelling and well crafted story. There's nothing else to tell really, the story should have ended with the final Kenshiro vs Raoh battle. I can't help but feel like that was the original plan, but they continued it due to popularity or whatever.

Patlabor 2 is difficult to comprehend without doing a bit of research behind it first and also having a decent understanding of the characters (although the former is more important). It's loosely based on Japanese troops being stationed in Cambodia in the 90s, which given how the movie goes Oshii was very opposed to. This is what the whole opening sequence and the villain's motives are about. I assume it was common knowledge/easy to gather for Japanese viewers at a time (and probably still today), but it's definitely something lost on foreign viewers unless they look it up (which is obviously what I did haha). There's some other stuff too but it's not as important and I don't want to go on a huge rant here, it's one of my favorite movies ever so I can get carried away with it.

I use Manga Rock (it basically pulls files off of all the major manga sites) and Perfect Viewer (for stuff you already have the files for), both are for Android. The comfort/convenience is definitely the best part of having a tablet.

I know what you mean about Yuri Kuma's dialog, I actually dropped it after the trial scene in the first episode. When Life Sexy said "That is sexy. Shabadadoo," I was done.

I guess I'll try HxH sometime, I'm trying to lower my standards for genres I don't usually try anyway. It would be pretty unfair to watch terrible 90s harems and then refuse to touch something so highly regarded.

Speaking of 90s harems, I'm halfway through Tenchi Muyo Ryo-Ohki 3 now and I have to say it's not as bad as I thought it would be. It doesn't even look that bad, either. Though they did introduce a bunch of new girls to the harem, including an arranged fiancee, so I can see why people would resent it. The plot is still basically the same as the other ones, though.

I'm glad you're enjoying Patlabor TV, I really wish there were more shows like it with that combination of slice of life/comedy/weird things happening.

Was about 6½ years ago when I first saw it, so yeah it's been some time. Ah, the Shippuuden anime... yeah I expected it to end next month month actually, but for some reason they are still doing fillers. I bet it's just an excuse to have the anime on TV for a while longer (not sure who's to blame there) but I think the anime will end either in December 2015 or March 2016, depending on how long the upcoming filler episodes will last.

I'm actually not sure if it's custom build. My dad got it for me second-handed from a colleague of his for 400 bucks. Surprisingly after 8 years it still works really well and watching anime in 1080p is no problem. The only anime I haven't been able to play in 1080p was Redline just because the animation is absolutely bonkers.

I don't think a Porco Rosso sequel will happen, which is a shame. Yeah they pretty much did, lol. It's like Ghibli just doesn't know what to do without them. There was that Ronja TV show recently though... which I didn't watch because I couldn't stand the animation.

I'd love to get Discotek's new blu-ray. Problem for me is, I'd have to import it myself which I've never done before. Normally I buy all my anime DVD/BD's from Archonia and they also get import releases which is really awesome, but for some reason they just didn't import Castle of Cagliostro (it happens more often with Discotek releases).
Nice! I've recently completedall the TV specials as well, I decided to finish it up before the new Lupin series would start. Which is your favorite so far? I think mine is Sweet Lost Night.

Yeah I saw that! At last Only Yesterday is getting a english release, 24 years after the japanese release xD I won't be able to see it in theaters, but I'm looking forward to rewatching it in dub.

Oh I'd love some more anime seasons for it! I tried reading the manga but like I've said before I have a hard time trying to get into manga.

Haikyuu is pretty good. It's definitely better than Kuroko no Basuke. It's still quite shounen-ish, but far less silly. It also has really fun characters, although a bit many.

Yeah it's a franchise that I don't expect will impress me much, but as long as it's fun and entertaining, I'll have a good time :)

KTKore | Aug 25, 11:16 AM
lmao, gotta love those far away shots.

Also looking for terrible in-between frames has become somewhat of a hobby for me lol. Took this from Z a few days ago:

Impossible to see in full motion since that scene was so fluid and fast. Unlike the crap from Super ep 5 where it's so slow and sloppily done that you can see how terrible it looks whether it's in motion or not heh.

The eps after have looked a lot better, but overall, in general, Super is just...missing something. I don't feel the Dragonball magic in this yet. My favorite parts have been watching Vegeta be completely out of character haha.
