Interesting. Yeah I've watched a couple things directed by him and enjoyed them all (Takarajima being my favorite) so I was planning to finish watching everything directed by him in 2019. Even the 5 Lupin III movies/specials he did.

I've had a lot of interest in 'Hakugei Densetsu'(although sadly I haven't found a download for it) as of late and I've noticed you rated it a 5. I'm quite curious what your thoughts on it are.

The mech designs are hillarious for sure. You can't forget the classics, such as Nether Gundam
drayzuh Dec 28, 2018 7:34 AM
Yeah if you just completely ignore the fact that it bears the Gundam name it won't feel as weird, I think. Most of the time while watching it I completely forget that even is a gundam lol. I find that a lot of people simply let the name of a certain work hinder their enjoyment of it which I've never really understood. An example of this would be people who don't like Patlabor 2 because it's A LOT different from the OVA and TV series. I think it's better to look at every individual thing on its own merits, rather than the name it bears. If you ever feel like it you could read 'literaturenerd's review of patlabor 2 to see what I mean, it's bizarre how much praise he gives it but because it's not like the other patlabors it's by default not as good as it could be. Although perhaps this is because I'm not particularly attached to the original Patlabor OVA/TV series.

Of course this is just something to consider, I'm not trying to shill G Gundam because for all I know the final 20 episodes could be a trainwreck lol but yeah was just something I was curious about.

So I've been slowly going through the whole Gundam series as of late. Currently on Mobile Fighter and I'm very curious why you decided to drop it, especially considering it seems rare you drop a show. It's decently fun so far, though it's very inconsistent with its quality. Some arcs are amazing and are thrilling as other Imagawa shows like Giant Robo or Shin Mazinger. But some others are outright stupid and pointless BS lol. As for the other Gundams, 0079 holds up a lot better than a lot of people seem to give it credit for, I enjoyed that one immensely. Especially the last 10 or so episodes. Char is too cool. I personally did not enjoy Zeta at all, the character drama was so blown out of proportion and I felt myself constantly baffled at a lot of things that would take place. This pertains mostly to the 2nd half of the show though. Double Zeta on the other hand was great, the first half was very hit or miss with its comedy but once the 2nd OP comes in and shit starts to get real, it reaches the heights of 0079 for me personally, it was great. Turn A so far is my favorite of the bunch. The writing felt a lot more competent and contained when compared to something like Zeta, the lore of the show with the dark history and how it plays into the themes of humanity repeating its mistakes was awesome, and the artistry of the show is bizarre at times but I loved it in that regard personally. The double identity thing both with Loran being androgynous and Diana/Kihel looking identical was a quirky story device I enjoyed a lot as well. As for War in the Pocket I mildly enjoyed it but I think I'm done with ''anti-war'' stories, because most of them pretty much say the same thing and because of that from the opening moments of the OVA I could already tell what they were trying to set up. When it comes to anti-war stories nothing will ever top 'Come and See' and 'Apocalypse Now' for me. Sorry for making you read all that if you did lol but yeah wanted to drop all my thoughts on Gundam somewhere.

Rosemary's Baby is creepiest when you treat it as a documentary. Cuz like you know, the illuminati and stuff. I haven't been too into movies lately. Just reading books. Nick Cage's Wickerman is great though... heheh

Based hatul spreading yonetani love as always. Betterman is completely lovecraftian, better than loveccraft himself. Betterman is utterly unique in anime, even compared to brigadoon. Best rec you have given me, and it seems, countless others

on second thought, i have not watched all of what you recommended me, so i may be premature, but betterman is still the best,
drayzuh Dec 3, 2018 9:43 AM
Your Betterman review has got me to watch it and I must say I'm really enjoying this so far, it almost feels like a lovecraftian mecha show in a way? Which is amazing. All of its scientific exposition reminds me of MGS as well, although somehow it works quite well here.

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
PoppingPills Oct 28, 2018 12:14 PM
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, 2018 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
PoppingPills Oct 28, 2018 10:34 AM
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
PoppingPills Oct 28, 2018 8:32 AM
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, 2018 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, 2018 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.
