Excellent Akira review! While it had to condense a lot of manga for obvious reasons, its iconic animation and powerful scenes make it a very worthy member of the classic anime canon.

That said, Happy Birthday!

Did you hear about this book?

I finally got it recently and it's neat stuff. From LOADS of contributors, it talks about how anime has shaped their experiences. It's 450 pages long and covers anime across SIX DECADES like Astro Boy, Macross and Evangelion all the way up to Your Name and Violet Evergarden. Most Ghibli films get a section, as well as all of Kon's projects. Yes, there is an SAO segment and yes, it's by Mother's Basement XD

Still, it's neat to check out, if mainly because it does a very nice job of showing the reach, power and ways to tell stories present in anime.

Still think you're still reading into it too much. The character was not kidnapped for the sake of such, it was a decision supported by her plus those around her and the idea was circumstantial because of its execution. Yes Violet said that, but I don't think it was the writer's intention to say 10 year olds should marry 30 year olds. If anything I sorta consider it a reaffirmation to herself to consider her relationship with the Major. That had its own set of issues we can both agree but it's not a bad idea to simply let her ponder about that.

They're common in most products, so seeing it in Higurashi was just playing with the chords. Fine enough for its placement if nothing groundbreaking.

Yeah.....I agree there, the art is pretty uneven at times, supposed to improve in Season 2. Works decently well when it really counts but otherwise, basic stuff, but the character designs in concept are simple enough to buy. A show like Madoka is far better in terms of art design in every department, though those characters would have fit even less in Higurashi's setting. A show like that doesn't animate the more complex designs as well, but is adequate with the simple ones.

I'd argue it becomes mysterious and interesting the longer watching it opens the rabbit hole, regardless of simple designs but whatevs.

Despite the lackluster characters and supposed inadequate horror, is there any good in the actual plot line? Regardless though, I appreciate the feedback and I'll probably give it a try, since I doubt the horror will be any worse than Another's attempt.
