For 8 years now and I repair motorcycles sometimes (which usually need plastic soldering). In addition, I just got done painting some brake drums for a client.

I'm doing alright, just doing some finishing touches on a butcher's rusted Volkswagen. Other than that, it's cool and I'm glad you replied (better late than never). Well, I have to go now. *gives a hug before going afk again*

Good morning, Kanon! :) how are you doing? I see that you're almost done with Blue Gender and if you want, you can tell me what you like most about it. As for Mobile Police Patlabor, you can watch the episodes in any order you like, since it's episodic. The English dub in that anime sounded very familiar. My other favorite Mobile Police Patlabor episode was when Shige had a dream that he was in New York.

Well, we can't show gay people to our children, they might grow up to be tolerant towards other sexualities or something./sarcasm Thanks, it was actually a pretty sudden avatar idea for me, mostly fueled by the fact that Perturbator, a French New Retro Wave musician whose songs are heavily influenced by the classic Sci-Fi/Cyberpunk/Horror movies and anime like Terminator, RoboCop, Akira and Wicked City, actually released a new album last Friday. And given that this new album's theme was generally all about femme fatales, futuristic Tokyo and the like, I thought that the Black Lady would fit the bill, as long as I'm still hyped over the sheer quality of the new album :D
As for Super S, I'd say give it another go one day if you'll feel like it, it's obviously not as good as Sailor Moon S (then again, this one's a peak of the entire franchise), mostly because it really does feel like a drag with its episodic format - Nehelenia herself doesn't even appear until the last few episodes and then you'll still have to wait until the last episode to get to learn her backstory (or at least the first part of it, given that Sailor Stars already played the "I had a lonely childhood" card), with the majority of Super S being taken by the fights with her underlings (then again, I guess that it's the most you can do if you're sealed inside of a mirror), even if the last few were pretty enjoyable. Especially back when I was a kid, I remember how me and my friend were like: "Oh bummer, why can't our moms look like Nehelenia?" ...yeah, I'm gonna cry myself to sleep right now because of how shameless the six year old me was.

My younger sister's zodiac is also a rat and how have you been?
Kurt_Irving May 10, 8:53 AM
Hi Kanon! :) I didn't know you were watching Blue Gender. That's the survival horror anime that I saw on TV back in 2003 and I remember I re-watched it 6 years ago. Anyway, what's your Chinese zodiac?
VincentHarkonnen May 7, 9:58 AM
Oh yeah, weren't DiC Entertainment the ones who removed that one gag with Chibiusa when she's threatening Usagi with a gun? Haha, the Polish version was censored too, despite it actually having the Japanese voice actors. So yeah, we still had to roll our eyes at Haruka and Michiru being "cousins". To be honest though, watching the censored version as a kid certainly helped to make rewatching the series years later much more enjoyable, because there was so much cut content to discover :D As for Sailor Stars, it seems that we're going to have an exact same opinion about it, as I'm not a fan of the main story arc's romance either, it made the overall series feel rather strange. I mean, Sailor Stars itself does provide the closure to the series at least (along with Usagi and Mamoru's relationship FINALLY starting for real), but the only episodes I remember actually enjoying were the ones focused on Queen Nehelenia, although that's probably because I'm generally really fond of this character, she's like a villain from an old fairytale (which probably doesn't surprise anyone, given that her portion of the story from Sailor Stars was literally "The Ice Queen" set in the Sailor Moon universe), plus her character design is downright amazing looking. I can't wait to see it looking like crap in Crystal's next season./sarcasm Bottom line, Sailor Stars was probably my least favourite season of Sailor Moon, the whole thing with male idols and the evil Senshi simply wasn't as gripping to me, compared to S and Super S. I do appreciate them explaining more when it comes to the overall backstory though.
VincentHarkonnen May 5, 9:14 AM
So after digging more into the behind the scenes stuff regarding Sailor Moon, I found out that Usagi was originally supposed to use a gun in the manga (and you can most likely tell that I liked this concept artwork so much that I had to change my avatar again). Damn, this is just... wow. *laughs* Eat your heart out, Mami Tomoe, Sailor Moon almost did the "Magical Girl with a gun" thing first. At this point I like to imagine that by the time when Usagi managed to turn into Neo Queen Serenity, her sidearm probably morphed into Deckard's gun from Blade Runner or something, except loaded with the power of love. This is so bizarre, that I actually kinda regret that it got scrapped, probably because Usagi is so clumsy that she'd become a bigger menace to society than the villains if she'd have to use a gun.

I've been kinda busy restoring an old VW, but anyway, you're welcome and not only do you have good taste in anime, but also in music. Contemporary classical music may be the type of music I'm looking for and I'm also looking for any jazz music with a similar sound to the Cowboy Bebop OST.
SunWukung May 2, 12:17 PM
I haven't seen Sailor Moon. How is it?
Kurt_Irving May 2, 12:08 AM
Hello again, miss Kanon! :) I like your new profile picture and I've been wondering, what kind of music do you like to listen to? as for Mobile Police Patlabor, I thought it was a cool anime from the year of the snake and I still remember the episode when the characters were hungry, which was pretty funny. xD

As for the music that I like, you can say that it's eclectic and varied. However, I don't listen to EDM, rap, rock/heavy metal (I do love Anthrax's Inside Out song which has a bluesy intro), modern country (I prefer the sound and feel country music had in the 1920s or 1950s) or pop very often.
VincentHarkonnen May 1, 10:45 AM
Yeah, I've had my doubts about Delta right after they have revealed the character designs, but nothing could prepare me for Magical Girls using the Variable Fighters as their mobile stages. The fact that the protagonist is able to fight in his Valkyria with a friggin' capoeira without any training is almost insulting as well. I could stomach the actual idol group because even if it is a huge trend in Japan, it may still work if it's done correctly, but the Magical Girl formula and the overall naivety of the show are just too much. I also hope that you like the jokes based on a girl falling on a character, resulting in him grabbing her boobs by accident, because this is the kind of comic relief this show is going for.

Yup, Sailor Neptune is a yet another character from this show I'm very fond on, even if it's mostly because of her very appealing design, which was shockingly delicate for a character as tough as she was. I also got the overall impression that both her and Uranus were the most mature characters in the show, not only because of them being generally strong-willed, but also because their love actually felt quite genuine, even if they might simply create such impression when compared to the usual overdramatic yuri couples. You know, they were so hell-bent on being together, that they might as well be Utena characters. *laughs* As for the other Senshi I like, I'd say that Jupiter was the one I was quite fond of, but that was mostly because of the comedy factor rather than anything else. I kinda wish Pluto would get more screentime as well, because her being the only adult Senshi was pretty interesting, but she dies so fast that I can only imagine the author getting rid of her because of how powerful her magic was. I was actually pretty indifferent about the rest though. Still, Mars and Venus were definitely the best to me :D I'd say that Chibiusa and Hotaru were my least favourite ones, but their relationship was very good while it lasted. You know, regarding the hentai titles where the antagonists reminded me of Tomoe for some reason... I can't think of any particular title now that you've actually asked me about a specific title, I've seen far too many hentai. *laughs* I'll try to recall some title though, gotta love the feeling when you almost recall something, but you can't remember the actual name of the said thing, even if the main antagonists of Makai Kishi Ingrid and Kangoku were sending out rather familiar vibes, same goes to that one possessed kid from Mahou Shoujo Ai, I believe it was the second episode. Oh, believe me, Crystal still delivers. Look at that Eudial fight :D And yes, we don't get to see her actually countering Usagi's attack with her ridiculous flamethrower (still one of my favourite moments from the original show), the scene where Uranus and Neptune get shot also got thrown out of the window (along with, once again, the hilarious part where Eudial pretends to play Bach's classic piece on organ). Hell, we don't even get to see one of my favourite parts of the Death Busters arc back when I was a kid, which was Eudial driving her call like a madman while popping out of more and more ridiculous spots in the city. In other words, they kill her in two minutes. And okay, to the show's credit, this is pretty much what happens in the manga too (which is a reason in itself how good the originald aptation was by adding so many scenes which fleshed out the villains), and even here Crystal is looking cheap because in the manga, Eudial turns into a gorgon after getting hit by Sailor Mars's attack, but apparently that was to expensive to animate. And don't worry, Mimete got killed off in the next episode. Damn, Witches 5 are pushovers in Crystal, they all die in one hit. Well, at least if they're following the manga, that would mean that we're going to see Hotaru/Sailor Saturn getting ripped apart when Mistress 9 will burst out of her like a damn creature from Alien. Why do I get the feeling that they're going to screw that part up to? Now, tot his season's credit, they did fix some issues from the first Crystal, for example, they did remove the CG transformation sequences and they made the more important shots look better than the rest of the show (clearly because they don't have budget, but that's still a better way of doing things than making all scenes look bad like in the first Crystal). If anything, Crystal still keeps proving how great the original adaptation was, as it expanded upon a generally simple manga, while Crystal is sticking to the manga only while also taking shortcuts here and there.
How are you enjoying Sailor Stars, by the way? :)

Well, Nagai himself is credited for being a creator of the Super Robot genre in general, as he created Mazinger Z way back in the late '60s. In fact, he created Devilman and Cutie Honey in the exact same year, what a guy. As for the inspirations, Hideaki Anno mentioned Devilman as his main inspiration for Evangelion. Miura says that Nagai has greatly infleunced his dynamic style of drawing and pretty much every Japanese movie director, video game developer and scriptwriter who's dealing with giant robots, monsters and mix of action and symbolism keeps mentioning Nagai as their main inspiration. There's a lot of people who keep mentioning Nagai's works being very inspiring to them in general. As for my personal favourite of his Mecha titles, when it comes tot he anime, I'd say that Mazinkaiser SKL was my favourite one because of how simple and over the top it was, but in general, every single title from the Getter Robo franchise is great to me, both in case if the anime and the mangas. In fact, Getter Robo was the franchise which introduced robots bigger than the galaxies (or rather, a single robot - Getter Emperor) way before TTGL became a thing. And you knoww hat? Nagai still handled this concept better - in TTGL, the robots grew bigger than the galaxies because, I don't know, people were supposed to find it cool (and they did, it's just that I found it pretty stupid and overblown in a negative sense of the word myself), while in Getter Robo, the Getter Emperor is introduced in the far future where it's terrorizing other civilizations, so the aliens travel back in time to destroy the actual Getter Robo piloted by the main heroes (who are completely unaware of the whole thing), as it was actually the larval form of the evergrowing Getter Emperor. That's just amazing with how simple, yet unique it sounds.

You could watch Castle in the Sky and pretty much everything about it is wonderful.
Kurt_Irving Apr 24, 8:48 AM
Thank you for the friend request and I'm with you on the pairing of said anime characters along with Pumpkin Scissors. Other than that, I was rewatching Spirited Away and I have yet to watch Howl's Moving Castle.

Meh, cruddy, but things could probably be worse. Been a very stressful few months.
