It was Near who recommended it and yes that's the title. Only watched a couple of episodes myself.

In other news the third season of Black Lagoon has been confirmed. Fuck yeah!

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Well, I gotta say, I haven't watched very much anime but I am a fan of some. The recent anime I watched was Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and I shit bricks and urinated a buffalo. For only 26 episodes, it is epic. I've also seen InuYasha and Full Metal Alchemist. They were good. But InuYasha's ending sucked. I was deeply disappointed with it.

Not gonna go into spoiling detail though.

Some future Animes I hope to catch:
Cowboy Bepop
G-Gundam
Gundam Wing
Black Lagoon
and F-Zero: Farukon Densetsu

All original and subbed, of course.

It was great but I got the feeling they said "You know what, Instead of making a solid ending, lets just make it as ambiguous as an acid trip" when it came to the last 2 episodes and the movie. Really pissed me off.


Rest in Peace Legend

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I feel that the original ending was satsifing to me. To me, it seemed that Shinji was contend with himself and was happy in the end. But with the movies, I felt so sorry for Asuka and Shinji. Everyone just got fuck in the end. The only one who may have found hapiness is Rei, favorite character BTW. So I prefer the orignal ending over the movie's ending.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Finally finished the new Guyver series, it was so average. So much crying and whining by the supporting cast and little in the way of action comapred to the original 12 episode series all those years ago.

The story is much better as its closer to the manga but it still wasn't all that. Oh well it passed the time, I just want the next installment of Bleach to be out on DVD here in the UK then I can get back to watching something worth my time.

Puroresu - the most perfect form of wrestling there is, the atmosphere, the wrestlers, everything. As far as im concerned it can do no wrong.

So say we all!

You completly missed the point and why does it have to spelt out for you.

To me the whole thing is a personification of emotions, doubts and dreams of a teenager. His thoughts of females, a mother, a lover, simply a person. Excepting who he is and how tough things are -it wasn't supposed to be taken so literal with actual robots fighting each other, it all stood for something. It was a visual representation of things like guilt, pressure, jealousy, beleifs, sexual desires etc etc thats what the whole series was, a growing boy turning feelings into a visual story. The ending was him coming to terms with his own destiny and how things are in life and he needs to accept it to be able to get through life.

Even the guy who made it was clinically depressed and stated that was his idea, the fact it went over so many people's baffled him. Hence the film was made to give people some form of actual closure and to of course apeese the death threats sent to him.

Thinking for yourself is overrated, even if the series means something different to you thats perfect but at least you thought about it.

How do you depict an emotion that can't be drawn? like love for example, pink hearts isnt an emotion the actual feeling of love is most likely impossible to draw but you have to try, hence why the episodes you think are acid trips are trying to show an emotion/sense that can't be seen or is impossible to represent through a medium such as animation. Thats why things seem so trippy it was the creators way of trying to show "acceptance" and to each different person in the world, drawing acceptance or interpreting it is different.

Neon Genesis - each person understands it in a different way.

Puroresu - the most perfect form of wrestling there is, the atmosphere, the wrestlers, everything. As far as im concerned it can do no wrong.

So say we all!

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Some of my new and old favorites now are:

Death Note - I'm surprised how quickly I started to enjoy the dark tone of the show.

Dragon Ball & Dragon Ball Z (I ignore DBGT) - My favorite anime series of all time.

Yuu Yuu Hakusho - Really come to like the style of this one and how it's set up.

InuYasha - Nothing too special. But thought of it as a fun adventure anime that kept my attention for a good period of time.


I say give any of those a try when you're up for it.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I've got Fighting Spirit coming in my Netflix. I know Blasko has seen it but has anyone else? I thought it looked pretty good.
