I just got done watching Neon Genesis Evangelion, including the movie.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread (2019 Edition)

End of Eva was more of a fuck you in response to the backlash for the show’s infamous ending. Ultimately, the Christian imagery does not have any actual meaning behind it and was just used for aesthetic purposes. Those who try and find actual symbolism are looking deep for something that isn’t there. The franchise is incredibly rich in themes but I disagree with those who try and cite Christian symbolism as part of its depth.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread (2019 Edition)

Does anyone know if there is a good wrestling related anime out there? The new Tiger Mask doesn't quite do it for me, and I've watched all of Wanna Be the Strongest in the World (and felt super gross the entire time). Any suggestions?

When in trouble or in doubt: run in circles, scream and shout.

Is it any good, though? I've heard not so good things about it.

Of wrestling anime there's:
Kinnikuman (1983) - sci fi, comedy, wrestling
Ultimate Muscle (2002) - sci fi, comedy, wrestling anime
Kinnikuman Nisei: Ultimate Muscle (2004) - sci fi, comedy, wrestling
Kinnikuman Nisei: Ultimate Muscle 2 (2006) - sci fi, comedy, wrestling
Tiger Mask (1969) - sports
Tiger Mask II (1981) - sports
Tiger Mask W (2016) - sports
Plastic Model Wrestling Sanshiro (1983) - think beyblade but the beyblades are wrestlers
Metal Fighter Miku (1994) - sci fi, mecha (kind of/maybe/not sure)
Wanna be the Strongest in the World (2013) - ecchi, sports

That's all the wrestling anime that exists. You could broaden it to sumo and get:
Notari Matsutaro (1990)
Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro (2014)
Hinomaru Sumo (2018)


But there isn't really any other anime that deals specifically with wrestling.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread (2019 Edition)

I'm starting to catch up with this season, as now I've seen boogiepop, dororo, quintuplets and kaguya. I recommend dororo is pretty good besides the last couple of chapters, and kaguya for comedy.

Just finished the newest Episode of Promised Neverland from this week OH MY GOD!

Spoiler for :
Momma was always one step ahead of everyone amazing work by her. She got rid of Sister Kurone knowing her plans all along and her working with the kids, and she got her good in the end. I'm kinda mad Kurone was killed off, I thought she was a compelling character being a former child who was going to be food for Harvest and somehow she survived. I don't understand how she didn't put up a better fight than she did, but at least she left behind clues for the kids to find when they eventually find that package and pen she left behind.

It was pretty sick to see Momma Isabella literally break Emma's leg to keep them from leaving, she knows they would never leave one behind in their plans. It's even more crazy now that Norman is on the chopping block what the fuck are they going to do now, Norman isn't going quietly no way they escape without killing Mom. The kids found out what Momma will do to keep things in line, now the kids will need to take it up a notch.

Seriously, I think The Promised Neverland is anime of the year and weíre just getting started in 2019. Isabella is chilling as fuck and the fact that she can do all of this and be so many steps ahead of the kids after all they tried to do to plan an escape with a smile makes her terrifying. Iím vaguely aware of the manga, so this is refreshing for me and kind of makes me want to commit to the source. If you havenít started this series yet in any form get on that shit NOW!
