Hi there, my friend. How is going?

Twelve Kingdoms > Neon Genesis Evangelion

Absolutely.

I don't really have strong opinions on the show. I didn't feel really strongly about anything, but nothing repelled me, and I found some things engaging enough.

As an idea piece it did its aim, and the scenarios that unfolded had some intrigue. I'm personally not a fan of everything being so deliberately crafted for the show's aims, with little to the characters beyond that and such, but I don't have as big of a problem with that as some do. Whereas magical girl shows generally go for a more padded out approach ("monster of the week" e.g. Tutu or "character of the week" e.g. Doremi), Madoka goes for a hyper-focused approach that also pay homage to a lot of things common in Magical Girls shows. It's probably far more appealing to fans of the genre.

I will say that my experience with the show was ultimately detached, where I was just watching to see how the events would unfold, rather than caring about what happens to the characters.

I have yet to read your review, but I did see some of your conversation with Mumi and Kai on Justice from 5 months ago.

Haha, it was the first thing I noticed on the MAL page. Beating Gundam at the name game.. Sounds interesting enough though. I've been rewatching random stuff lately, so I'll be sure to check it out when I'm done with that.

There's a TON of cute girl shows out there. If you ever need help on those stormy seas let me know. Interesting first choice, but you got the right idea about it. It's a pretty decent drama. A lot of 2000s anime has that subdued quality I feel.

yo is Chikyuu SOS worth watching for Lotta Brest? lol But seriously I never heard of it before and it looks pretty cool.

Yeah, aesthetics were great in both series, but the second one stood out to me as well. It looked more like a mid 2000s European cartoon than an anime and like you said if someone were to watch an AMV of it, they'd probably thing it was amazing. haha

My friend and I with whom we saw both series often joke that if there ever is a 3rd Sol Bianca series, maybe then they'll decide on what story to tell. haha

Hahaha sorry, I must have assumed too much! I just figured with the heavy anti-capitalist messaging in Arjuna you might lean that direction. I happen to be a Marxist Leninist myself.

Dialectical materialism is basically the deep analysis of things in accordance with their history and circumstances... Pretty much making for a very thorough analysis. I was just saying that some things I've seen you say could be perceived as being in line with that philosophy! That's all.

I take it I was off the mark? Apologies if I caused any offense.

Yoooo, I'm half-way through Chikyuu Shoujo Arjuna right now... and just... wow. As was made obvious by the last bowl of word soup I sent your way, I unfortunately lack the capacity to express just how amazing a show of this caliber is. So I won't do it the injustice of trying. I just wanted to swing by to say:

1) Part of me can't help but feel like there was a concerted corporate effort to bash it's reception...

and 2) Bro... Are you a communist too?!

...I can almost feel the dialectical materialism coming off your posts...

Oh man, I still have to see Votoms. Heard a lot of mixed things, But I want to see for myself what it's all about. The mech designs alone look really cool!

It's a better version of Gundam Wing. It's a bit messy and generic (and with a lot of the same problems), but it's alright as someone's first Gundam I guess. I'm watching it with friends and we're about halfway through the first season.

I noticed you've watched Sol Bianca as well! The first episode of the original series was a great short burst of fun, but the second one didn't really go anywhere and soured the experience for me. The second series seemed much more promising at first, but didn't really go in any direction either and it's as if they forgot they had a plot to begin with about halfway into the series. Still, I liked it a lot more than the original How about you?

Hey, man! Sorry for the late reply; thanks for getting back to me about Turn A!

Real shame it didn't do it for you, I actually liked the slow pace and slice-of-life aproach to war. Some of my favorite episodes were usually the ones with the characters messing around, like the one where Dianna was a nurse!

I like how they handled Guin overall as well. He never felt like a true villain and it wasn't until late into the show that he revealed his true colours. The reveal was slow, just like his buildup, but I felt it was handled well. His cunning, his ulterior motives; there were hints about his true intentions from the start, so when he finally made the face-feel turn it didn't feel like it came out of nowhere like most "non-villain villains" end up doing in media.

The rest of the shows are nothing like Turn A. If you want a completely opposite experience, you should try Victory; that's when Tomino's depression hit rock-bottom and he made by far the darkest of all Gundam shows. G Gundam is dumb, shonen fun, but it's awfully predictable. At the very least I'd recommend the original entry (TV series or the 3 compilation movies). It's campy and old school, but it set the stage for other realistic mecha shows and is a pretty big deal in Japan.

There's short clips of the fight scenes on YouTube if you wish to take a quick look.

Have you watched Wu Shan Wu Xing (Fog Hill of Five Elements)? It's a martial arts show with great animation and fight scenes, but it also features a pretty average shonen plot and only three episodes.

Will do!

Wow, thanks for your detailed explanation.

Hello, just noticed that you’ve finished Ping Pong. I’m curious to hear your thoughts on it.
