    So, uh, Dragon Head.

    Dragon_Head_01.jpg

    I can't think of much else to compare it to but it's a good story, a real classic, about the end of at least a part of the world. That and human nature. Some action, some horror, some light romance, and a lot of psychological stuff. "Despair" is the word here, though "determination" is as well I guess. Pretty dark and gritty at times but not a constant downer(IMO).

    I really liked the art style to this, really felt late 90's - early 2000's to me in a very specific way.

    Dragon Head was good for me for the first two volumes. I didn't quite like how the plot didn't really go anywhere.

    The plot went exactly where it said it was going, and when it got there it ended. Which is pretty normal. Honestly the first two volumes had the least amount of plot movement.

    I know a lot of people don't like how some things were left up in the air, or how it was merely a series about surviving and how people react to catastrophe, but I feel like that's kind of the point.

    So got my No-Rin on bluray today (along with Hayate no Gotoku season 2, as well as Angel Blade and Nurse me). And, it got me wondering... Is it really too much to ask for 5.1 Japanese Audio? Obviously 5.1 isn't beyond you since 5.1 English audio is available. Not that I understand why anybody would use it, but still...

    I bet the Japanese blu rays are in 5.1 (and admittedly, much more expensive) but you'd think they'd be pushing for the value added proposition on blu ray, since they offer, through their own streaming service, access to the show for less (No Rin became entirely available the day the blurays came out).

    Is licensing it that expensive? Is it a technical issue? There has got to be enough space on the bluray for an extra audio track. Especially since they usually put 9 episodes on one disc and 3 on the other (which i always found goofy, why not just go 6 and 6? or 7 and 6 or whatever? There is no way the 20 minutes of commercials and "special features" is taking up all that extra space).

    It was much better than akikan.
    It is kind of in the same vein as Girls Und Panzer or C3 bu. Like a more poverty version of Strike Witches, or an ecchi version of Kantai Collection.
    Its cute girls and military hardware fetishism. What's not to like?
    It just the art a lot of the times isn't good enough to be great ecchi. Kanokon, Toloveru/Motto To Loveru and Softenni all had this problem. Good, but not great.It's like studio xebecs B team were on the job. For reference, Ladies vs Butlers, Maken Ki and To-Loveru Darkness all were much better ecchi, some good definition to those nipples. A lot of the earlier stuff if just nipple color and u shapes.

    I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir given how many KOF players there are in these forums, but any of you guys serious Saint Seiya heads? I finally had a chance to check it out after a decade of curiosity back in 2014 and I've been hooked ever since. For me I'm a main series purist, though: most of the spinoffs didn't hold my interest. Kind of surprised Toei hasn't put forward a Tokusatsu version of it after all of these years, the level of success it's had and how well-received the Sailor Moon Tokusatsu was when they put that on screen.

    just finished watching an older anime called Mars Daybreak, back when BONES was on fire. it was filled with the essence of BONES, while it was meh, i loved it anyways.

    speaking of BONES, my favorite studio. they have been called upon to produce the new Full metal panic. im pretty sure none of us were actually holding our breath expecting kyoani to do it.

    from the website it looks like the original creator and illustrator are on the staff for this. so far so good.

    Hang on isn't the only regular named zentradi in Frontier the one who turns into a loli in her human sized form?

    Gate 20:
    I am pretty sure they are going to completely miss the pedophile angle. Like, even his vice secretary was kind of suggesting that he should have chosen love over cold diplomacy. Then he risks pulling the country into a bloody and drawn out war because he is going to marry that girl? I mean, I really don't think he did it for moral reasons. If he was just concerned for her safety...he didn't have to hug her, and then hold her like that. Hell, he could have been like "Stop! I have approved that girl's request for asylum!" and you know...not risk political suicide by committing to marry a girl who hasn't had her first period yet.
    I figure its just going to be another example of showing how great Japan is, because they wait until they are 16 until they diddle kids.

    Rewatched Ladies Vs Butlers.
    Man, that was a great show. There was some surprisingly nice cinematography here and there. And Flameheart was a surprisingly endearing character. I think it is because her straight faced, honest and animated character contrasts so nicely with Tomomi's cold, calculating evil. It is also kind of odd to see a drill haired girl be one of the "main" girls in the running, and not a disposable side character used only for the summer home or whatever. It's kind of a shame too, since they do look stupid, and she looks much, much better in the few scenes where her hair is down.
    The subs on this Anime Works (what? they and media blasters are still around?) blu ray are pretty spotty. I mean, most of the time its fine, but occasionally you get really, really poor translations that don't even make sense, like, they had two translators and one of them, English was a second language. It's most notable in the first and last episodes.
    Also, didn't include the legendary specials, which is a crying shame. Those were revolutionary.

    Man, that latest episode of Gundam.
    Foreshadowing Biscuit's death was too obvious the minute Orga told him they'll talk after they leave the island. It was reinforced when that other lady told him he has all the time to tell him.

    I super hate it when animes do that shit. The foreshadowing techniques used are so obvious and it ends up removing any tension from the episode. You have to at least give it a few episodes before you kill said character rather than doing it in the same episode. At least mix it up a little instead of being too obvious about it.

    The only thing that i liked of Omega was that Ikki's badassery was outrigt stated on it, not that anyone who is paying attention wouldn't know.
