Hello. ^^
How are you doing?

Oh, nice to own that, congrats! Kaoru Shintani "crossed over" his Desert Rose series with some other authors as well (including his wife, Kazuhiko Shimamoto and others). 5 in total, I think. Digged into it a bit after watching the OVA adaptation. Pretty cool concept for a crossover (even if the stories might be somewhat cheesy, I suspect)

You can finally have your long-haired Rei in better resolution

To be honest I hadn't realised she was holding a "child" until I watched the movie x)

Well it's for the best I guess, maybe people will finally stop complaining that G-Reco is "incomprehensible" and "too complicated". Though how many people will stomach 5 movies in a row is another question.

P.S. Reading the LOGH manga without finishing the original OVA? Blasphemy! x)

It looks like Tomino is going Anno's path with G-Reco movies x) So much new material isn't a thing in mere compilation movies.

Are "ugly CGI robots" not a problem in Shin Eva (guess I'll find out myself soon)? I remember you complaining about them in one of the previous films, and now Hathaway (another child of modern anime production technology).
St0rmblade Aug 21, 12:03 PM
I swear you'll make me watch Hathaway soon instead of my plans to wait for the whole trilogy to come out x)

With modern I meant 2010+ here. I don't think there haven't been any remarkable battle shounen until 2014(Nanatsu no Taizai, it saysa lot whenI thought that this one stood out) and 2016 (Boku no Hero Academia). I don't count AoT btw. It's a shounen with action, but it's not a battle shounen. There have been more sports Haikyuu, Kuroko no Basket and unorthodox battle shounen Bakuman, Food Wars, which admittedly had a similar appeal. Demon Slayer and Jujutsu Kaisen upped the game for traditional battle shounen again. Their animation had a distinctive style, but it's not just that. The whole product just felt well produced which elevated the source material. It struck me more while watching Jujutsu because I had read the manga before.

Regarding Demon Slayer not looking as good as one would expect based on the TV. In the last few days we got news that the first few episodes of the second season would recap the movie, lol. I guess that could explain it. But hey, you’re lucky, you will be able watch it on TV xD

Sadly, 86 is not as good looking. There's no love triangle and there won't be one as far as I know. Only hints at romance that will the focus later. If I had to compare this with an 80's war drama then I would choose War in the Pocket. War is pointless is what you will feel, even if it's less poignant in 86.

As for other downsides. Worlbuilding wasn't impressive in S1. It's also not really subtle in how the injustice, insanity, ignorance and hypocrisy of the Republic is portrayed. This and the idealism of underdogs (the 86ers) will require
some suspension of disbelief. For better or worse, it's a 2021 anime worth watching, unlike Dynazenon. Especially since chances are high that we will get more after season 2.

Thanks to closed theaters I couldn't enjoy it on the big screen, it was still a great modern shounen experience.

Well, you will notice that 86 is a LN adaptation, but considering that it's actually one of the best I've ever seen(no cap). The tropes aren't the worst and it's beautifully presented(maybe a bit too beautifully for a war drama). The thing that really irked me was introduced in volume 2 😑

And yes, I know it's Rei. I may not be the brightest, but I'm not blind xD

Shocking to people who believe it to be an animation masterpiece.

Hahahaha, nice one.

Weren't you interested in myanimelist.net/anime/41457/86?
