I'm hoping this is the same Milkymagic from C3F/The Anime Crisis Center... if it is, yo!

I'm trying to reunite the folks of C3F on discord. Got Chim, hawk, darky, Jeff and a bunch of others in there already.

Well maybe I'll be lucky and find a nice vhs of Robot Carnival on sale one day. I managed to get Black Magic M-66 on DVD really cheap. Now it;s selling for like 40 bucks.

Oh yes Vampire Princess Miyu is some top notch stuff. I'm really loving it. One more episode to go...

Hey no problem man. I know how it is! Yes Riding Bean was AMAZING. It was really gritty, you're right. And more then that the style of storytelling was so alive, the tone was so unique, the feel to it all was so exciting, that I know it's really going to stick with me. It made me jump online and buy Gunsmith Cats lol! Saw that and it blew my mind too. The background art in that was fantastic. And again such a wonderful little series. I don't know what one I like better...

Robot Carnival....Robot Carnival....Robot Carnival...been wanting to buy this on VHS for years now...One day man...one day it shall be mine. As for Kite I re-watch this like every six months. Last re-watch I was drawn to how effective the music was. That dark, powerful, and intense jazz score that goes through the whole show cuts deep down to the bone. But I could totally imagine listening to it outside of the show, on public radio or over the speakers at port authority. It's "that" kind os music. I just love it. Can't think of many other anime with truly authentic jazz in it. Sure there's tons of jazz-inspired soundtracks, but nothing like this, that works so well with the mood of the show.

Yeh I took a bit of a break from anime for awhile too. Now I'm back full swing. Just watched (and loved) Riding Bean! Amazing little show! Totally have to see Gunsmith cats now. Also watching Moonlight Mile, which is pretty good so far, but nothing to write home about. Other then that I've been playing a few video games for once, and started up my last semester of college.

btw, I'm also a fellow dweller of the great cheese state. :P

I live in the Waukesha area.

I got to my rewatch of Honneamise, it's now a top 5 favorite :) I got a lot more out of this a second time around, and I just thought overall it was a great experience. You're right in that it is very satirical, but it does end up with a hopeful view of humanity and their future.

There's a lot of subtly in the facial expressions, the details in the background. So good. But there's one thing I'm just still unclear over; Riquinni immediately forgiving Lhadatt for sexually assaulting her. Even APOLOGIZING for hitting him over the head to protect herself. At first, I found it so baffling and ridiculous. But this time around, I'm just trying to come up with my own conclusion, here. Only thing I can think of was that Riquinni wanted to end the situation before it got too melodramatic, or maybe she really is that forgiving of a person.

I appreciated that Lhadatt took that night as a hint to distance himself from her for a while. Only telling her that he has to go before he leaves on the train, with Riquinni accepting what he was attempting to do and just leave it at that.

I don't feel any anger towards Lhadatt, though. Because it is immediately shown that he did feel regret over what he did, opening up to Matti even over this moral situation. I think part of his speech when he made it to space, stemmed from his own guilt towards hurting her like that. And wanting forgiveness for his actions.

Pretty much :P It was a pretty cynical take on things, and who knows? Maybe the tone and theme came from Gainax's dealings with producers and studios who were funding the film? But, it does end on an optimistic note, a hopeful one at the very least. Which is something I can appreciate.



Amazing ending song, btw. As silly as it may sound. I think it's one of my favorite things about the film. Sometimes a good composition or song can help overlook any fault I found in something, and Sakamoto, Ryuichi is a composer I've come to respect lately.

It's up there with Ghibli films in terms of astounding Japanese animated Cinema works.

Yeah, it probably does you in your case.... :P I have yet to see Patlabor movie 2, btw. Which I'll have to fix whenever I'm up for it. I have a bad attention span when it comes to watching slow films on my PC...

What did you think of Sky Crawlers? Lot of people like it, but personally I found it a little heavy handed and unpleasant. It was Oshii at his most cynical, it felt.

Yeah. I have a friend on here who's really big into Natsume, so I will have to start the first season one of these days. So much anime, so little time.

I've taken two or three hiatuses from MAL over the years, and each time I leave, I realise it gets easier and easier not to want to come back.

I think my overall problem is that I had goals. I had previously lived without any and I can't recall ever being so miserable. It was whenever I had them that I felt sick. I think I just need to take it easy and be a farmer or a recluse.

Honneamise was a breath of fresh air to me since it had such a unique world to it all. And provided social commentary, albeit a cynical one at first. It really does start off as an inspirational story, to a grand exploration of human nature. It reminds me of 2001 in that respect.

I fear that I might have 'not gotten it' quite completely, first time around. It's one of those things that needs to be pondered for a while. At this point in time, I think that's something I appreciate. From what I understand, it is about that, essentially. With the girl being symbolised as the last touch of innocence in a world of corruption of darkness. The man taking her egg and destroying it could have meant that he(the world) eventually destroyed what innocence there was left in the world. One thing I'd like to understand more would be the part with the giant coelacanths shadows. :P

I think it's one of the few Oshii titles I've gotten something out of though, aside from his UY directed works.

I'd say go for Dirty Pair since Natsume has enough material to provide even more seasons. I wouldn't be in a huge rush.
Hias Dec 3, 2011 12:41 AM
I noticed, lol. I forgot I even made that comment on your wall. But you're back in the anime game I see?

Either way, you're tempting me to watch Honneamise and Angel's Egg again. I distinctly remember those two being satisfying.

Thanks and no problem about the late reply. I know we all get busy or need to take a break. Anyways, I was just curious about it(Linebarrels). It's not really a priority but I'll check it out someday. I'm actually trying to get a hold of a lot of the older stuff. I want to find something like Akira, A Wind Named Amnesia and some old school Mecha like the older Gundam series.
kirAth-shiAue Jan 23, 2011 9:06 PM
So how are you liking Kurogane no Linebarrels so far? I think I have that in my Plan To Watch part of the list.
Prede Jan 23, 2011 11:27 AM
Yeh I was planning on buying the OVA with the game thing of Phantom of Inferno since I like this so much. Mashimo did direct this, and he's definitely very skilled. I liked his work on Weathering Continent, Noir, and El Cazador among many others. He's great at creating mood and atmosphere. Funimation was streaming Phantom, so I'm sure you can check it out somewhere online. Hope you enjoy.
