Forgot to answer about the flipped manga question.

Flipped manga is when they literally take japanese manga, flip it, and make it read "normal" for us English readers. Because Akira was manga that was translated a long time ago, it suffers the same issue the original Sailor Moon manga and many many other manga faced- and that is being flipped.

You probably didn't know that what has sold in stores and continued to be sold in stores has been flipped.

But do you know what is the most annoying of all about Akira? It has been published before.... IN FULL COLOR. And the one they sell right now isn't. But this is actually the first printing they did.... by epic comics. coloring is so nice. If they were going to flip it and be stupid might as well sell it with the pretty colors.
But I guess since they re translated everything since... well orignially they did AMERICANIZE EVERYTHING, well just throw out all the work of coloring everything right?

here is more info on that

You know what sucks about the oniisame e DVD? It has come and passed. And it was a Kickstarter. If you missed out, you pretty much cannot get that third and final volume. Otaku no video had a way less TIGHT Kickstarter for both DVD and Blu-ray and they are available.

Urotsukidouji manga was brought over by Kickstarter. And the creator Actually came to Portland to thank everyone. Which is where Fakku is located. So that was cool.

I actually do watch a lot of older hentai and I actually prefer if it is at least a bit consensual in my hentai.What strikes me about the OVA is how "romantic- Romeo and Juliet they make it. Beauty and the Beast you know? And I do like how even guys want the protag's demon cum.

Other fave hentais are Sexfriend, My Fair Missusse, End of Summer. Many are funny to be honest... Lol

You're welcome!

Nothing in particular just watching GetBackers for now. After that, I might check out Basilisk since I wanted to give it a try for a long time. I've heard it has a sequel coming up on 2018.

What about you?

I actually DO NOT. I want one though. I have a way bigger VHS collection than even DVD collection because I am a classics fan. ;) It is super weird I know but I get along best with the fans in this community who collect laserdisks. lol. I have VHSes that have the translation notes. And to me, this is what I want most. Stuff like that. It makes me feel happy. I also have stuff like... "official fansubs" as in stuff they passed around hoping it would be officially brought to the usa to drive up interest.

My DVD collection though is getting pretty big. I am hoping my bluray collection gets bigger (it is only some ghibli stuff...). You know, they are FINALLY releasing Akira unflipped for the first time right? I think that is my next big purchase.

I am trying to add like a couple manga and a couple DVDs every year though. And that works pretty good actually... like at first you feel kinda like "yeah my collection is so small..." but after a while you are looking for a new bookcase to display it properly....

Manga off top of my head that have beautiful releases: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Heart of Thomas, Gundam Origins, Ghost in the Shell (in full color too...with a box), Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind(jumbo books, several beautiful color pages, box set), Gyo. I think I saw one for Attack on Titan all jumbo. These releases are beautiful and worth getting.

As for a soft cover I like- the Neon genesis Evangelion omnibus is able to be read over and over. And is printed on good paper unlike the Naruto one. XD Never can tell with Viz. But maybe Darkhorse helped. XD

Oh, it looks like I have Watchmen on my little list of PTW movies. It is about darker sides of superheroes, right?

Take a Bow reminded me of Time is Running Out, which, turns out, is another song by Muse. And Supremacy is by Muse too. I never took any notice of this band before, even though I found a few of their songs in my playlist. I think they chose the wrong name; it doesn't stand out at all. They should have taken example from Oomph!.
Thank you for sharing the song, I like it, and it is the best song by Muse that I heard so far.

Just wanted to remind you (or let you know, if you don't) that you are pathetic ignorant infantile arrogant stupid human of meat and bone. That's it.

That's what I typically look for. If someone fails at what it was trying to do, then something must have really went wrong.

The idea of critics and enthusiasts saying that others aren't enjoying something the right way is definitely problem, as it makes certain things feel really arcane and highbrow, as you must be at a certain level of cultured standing to be able to even watch something, much less speak about it. Probably the best kinds of shows are ones that can appeal to everyone, ranging from the average viewer to someone who wants to be super analytical. At the very least, I would imagine that any piece of art's goal is to be seen, unless it were made for self-satisfaction. As such, gaining an audience would be easier if the piece were more accessible.

That sounds interesting.
No, people in my country are very politically apathetic. Nothing major has been happening in the past twenty five years anyways. Right now I am in the U.S. though.
-Judas Oct 22, 1:02 AM
Haha, yes, I am a terrible ageist. But I am consistent and have a set of biases about very young people too. I will be waiting for your review. What kind of documentaries? No, it is interesting, but not enough. I guess I feel bored because I haven't been reading any books lately.

"Kino: It's interesting, isn't it?

Hermes: What is?

Kino: The way that when someone expresses something, someone else always shows up to interpret it. Maybe the world is just a series of such events."


This is a quote I really like from Kino's Journey, and I felt it was appropriate with the three ways Kino has been adapted so far, in addition to how Keiichi Sigsawa has portrayed Kino as both a stoic traveler and a gun-tooting magical high school girl. Mediating anime as an art also means taking art's complicated dilemma of trying to define itself amidst claims of subjectivity. Rather than saying all opinions are subjective and can be equally true, or that there were one objective means to assess something (both of which I feel to be constricting in definition), I'd imagine there to be means to say that certain ways to approach anime given a particular context can become more or less appropriate, rather than right or wrong. In a sense, what is Kino's Journey trying to do, and is it successful in that regard? Judging all shows based on entertainment is possible, but what happens if a well-directed, well-written, well-animated show with great characters happened to be aiming to create a nihilistic experience?

To qualify that question, I watched a Ghibli film called Iblard Jikan in the past, which was essentially Moving Pictures with Music: The Experimental Film. I'd be curious to know you thoughts on it in terms of what we've been talking about. In terms of entertainment, it's possibly the most boring anime I've ever seen, but in terms of creating an abstract artistic 45 minute experience, it's probably one of my favorite anime created through minimalist means.

I haven't seen it and I don't plan to watch it because I believe Jodorowsky created his best movies while he was young. But I admit it is impressive and admirable that he continues to work at such an old age.
I checked the database of the Russian network I use, and Endless Poetry is uploaded there. If you register, you can watch it there for free in Spanish with English subtitles.
I have been great. I am now as busy as I have always wanted to be. But somehow I am still bored.
How about you?
-Judas Oct 19, 7:51 PM
Did you end up watching Jodorowsky's 'Endless Poetry'?
Sympathee Oct 1, 5:38 PM
Will do! Thank you! I'm rewatching LOTGH but will probably watch those after I finish that and Symphogear AXZ!
