Looks super neat, and it's by granddaddy himself so I gotta watch it. Though I'm uncertain if something as refined as a Tezuka work is proper after having watched the cheesecake factory that is Frontier. Have to finish my bad OVAs to transition properly. Also downloaded Chevalier recently so I gotta get to that as well. I got plenty to watch, that's how it goes after a 3 year hiatus

Don't dare compare it to the culturally refined culture piece of culture that is Hyouge Mono though. I'll have to judge it worthy first.

Doesn't look like it got a budget though, uncertain how to feel. Will definitively investigate the finances of it

Sounds a lot like what Decode was, which is good. Might be that its a pretty direct adaptation, I heard that they were quite different you see. I guess I'll have to check out the manga and you the anime

Be warned though, budget-sama wasn't too kind to the show, but they pull a lot of neat animation tricks to make up for it
PoppingPills Oct 28, 11:08 AM
There is no such thing as good directors or good animators, there is only budget-sama's divine will. We can only pray for the blessings of the producers and the guidance of budget-sama.
Budget is my favorite buzzword

I feel the triangle was fairly decided in the show as well. The blonde gets a bunch of romantic scenes at the end, meanwhile the hobgoblin gets nothing. Though I guess bishi saying "lol no" to her is even more decisive.

Noticed you're reading Birdy, how is it? Been meaning to read it ever since I watched Decode and liked it. You should watch it, especially for the second season. Its so good even Hollywood directors rip it off

Well, if you see it as a stand alone movie it's definitely a lot weaker. It tries to only have the highlights from the show without the substance the show had. I see it as a companion piece of sort. The movie is all the best parts from the show in one small package with the budget of some African dictatorship. But as a standalone piece it's definitely lacking. I adore it though, the entire climax is peak anime. I'm convinced there's never been a better finale to an animated film

Speaking of, I finished the Frontier movies, they were ok. Severely disappointed in the second film though, it had a worse climax than the show! What the hell? How can they have a perfect final episode for the show, be given a movie and then make it weak in comparison? Outside of the one dogfight at the end they did nothing with finale. Weak tbh

They were pretty to look at though, nice to see the idols with a budget

Far as I can tell it got nothing to do with the games's plot, only sharing story and mechs. That's probably the best way to do things anyway. Plus it's super rare to have old MCs.

Unrelated note, how come you've given DYRL such a low score? Didn't you like the original that much?
PoppingPills Oct 28, 7:45 AM
Yeah ut was the movie episode that made med go: "wait a minute...". Its no biggie though if I got spoiled too bad, I'm watching it for the Focker scenes anyway

I have 't heard a single decent word about Planet With beforr though. Everyone seems to shit om it, but if you're vouching for it I might check IT out
Also, wtf Z.O.E had an anime? I've played the games so I probably should have known about this
PoppingPills Oct 28, 5:57 AM
Finished Frontier. Fuck that show, should be illegal to be bland for like 20 episodes and then turn around and become perfection for the last few episodes. Now I have to watch those damn movies.
PoppingPills Oct 27, 1:56 PM
The theme of co-dependency and reproduction is there from start to finish yes, I was thinking more in line of plot structure and character arcs. The main couple's developments just grind to a halt and they decide to spend a bunch of episodes on a boring side pair, while seemingly forgetting about the rest of the characters whose foundation had already been laid in previous character episodes.
The show could've easily salvaged itself if it commited to being an Eva homage. It spent a bunch of episodes on laying the foundations for the characters and themes slowly but surely and then had a pretty big bang with episode 15, and I kinda expected the plot to kick into high gear and commit to "youth vs elders" it was building towards. But nah, "aliens lmao" won out I guess.
I still think it was ok though since they pulled through on some good action whenever the budget allowed. The fanservice wasn't anything special either yeah, for some reason people were making a fuzz about skin tight suits in a mecha show, when its a freakin staple of the genre.

Already finished Plus, was daaaaamn good action and mechanical designs all through out. Watched both movie and OVA for the full experience. I should've done Zero before Frontier though. I swear to god though, if that little green moe blob wins over the sluttly blonde I'll drop this shit in the last episode. I'll only reluctantly watch the movies with my arm crossed and frowning I swear.
Something has gone terribly wrong though, when the romance is more compelling than the dogfighting and mechs, which is what I really came for. CGI isn't even bad, I just feel like its all poorly directed



PoppingPills Oct 27, 12:04 PM
Was pretty "eh" for me too. I started watching it because of the attention it was getting and I was at the very least entertained for a little while. But you only have to watch past episode 6 to notice that the show goes nowhere. The action was meh, the melodrama was meh, the animation was meh(outside of maybe a minute or two in episode 6 and 15), but hey at least there was some fetish girl in a skintight outfit right? But considering how garbage some of the things that air in Japan is, I can't help but appreciate that it seemed like it tried to do something for the first 15 episodes, even if they obviously didn't plan farther than that
Personally I feel like everyone created a shitstorm only to have something to talk about, nobody seems to care about it anymore, people simply moved on to something else.

It's not all bad though because I got a bunch of 80s OVA's to watch now, probably all bad but I got a big 80s itch after watching Macross. Rest of the Macross franchise isn't really doing much for me. There's less and less planes, and more and more idols. Will probably finish Macross F tonight, I don't like it that much nowhere near enough mecha action, but I gotta finish it to find out whether or not the bishi shags the blonde. I got my priorities straight I swear

2 episodes so far. does oniisama e get any good?

An uninspiring start to the series
PoppingPills Oct 21, 1:00 PM
Originality in the business is pretty much dead, its all adaptions or established franchises these days. That's why we need our boy Yonetani to bring originality back, even though he's stuck doing cooking shows(how did that happen?).

Wit can make great action if they got the money, just look at Kabaneri. Heck even when they are saving all the budget in AoT for the next season they make it look decent. But we're not getting that, oh no that would be too good for us. We're getting another 50 chapters of Baltic Sea War in the manga and CG longships in episode 1 of the anime. Probably isn't going to be a single drawn horse either. Nonetheless I'm looking forward to it, simply to see how they pronounce Nordic names
PoppingPills Oct 21, 12:07 PM
Its just poorly upscaled 480p digital, you didn't miss a thing. Atleast Sunrise is doing good work with their visuals these days. Here's hoping for a decent Hathaway's Flash adaption. Sunrise has never butchered a Gundam movie before, right?

We also got CG Vinland Saga to look forward to. Future is bright
PoppingPills Oct 21, 10:44 AM
Ah shit, forgot it was digital. Digital ruins everything, same reason the GitS SAC blu rays looks like crap. Early 2000s was the dark age I swear. Hopefully the BD sells well and our boy gets another shot at a mecha show. Only he can save us from shitty CG shows and bad upscales

3 years flew by. Lets see if its another 3 years until my next time online
PoppingPills Oct 21, 6:52 AM
The laserdisc scans we had were pretty awful, so this is a much needed blu ray release. I need to rewatch it as well, barely remember what happened. Hoping for a Brigadoon BD release as well, we need a Yoshitani renaissance.

Also, its just been 3 years since last I was online, it went by in a flash no worries
