Anime Thread 3.0: Same Old, Same Old

Recommended Posts

I'm bored of this cour already. Next one looks fun.

 

I'm also starting Initial D with my roommates for some reason, and it's unintentionally hilarious.

Has anyone seen The Irregular at Magic Highschool/Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei:http://myanimelist.net/anime/20785/Mahouka_Koukou_no_Rettousei

 

I'm on episode 4 and so far it's pretty good. I like that the main character is an incredibly capable badass who isn't full of himself, reminds me of Light Yagami from Death Note in some aspects.

 

I kinda liked it, but I thought it had a lot of wasted potential. I hated the ending.

 

It's also a jingoistic power fantasy and the main character has the personality of a rock, and the series just continually shoves into our face how he's the only one right, how everyone else is an idiot, and if he wasn't around nothing would be done. 

 

Yes, it's pretty bad.  It's like the author just gave a brief read of Atlas Shrugged, but thought it was a good thing, and added Japanese-flavor Right Wing Nationalism on top of it.

 

And it does all of this without irony.  It makes Sword Art Online seem like a work of art by comparison. 

 

Eh, that kind of show is alright with me every now and then.

I couldn't hold out any longer thanks to my post-Heartcatch blues and ended up binging all the stuff I had saved up for this season.

 

These days even if a show is really enjoyable or good, I often have trouble watching week-to-week. Even things like AssClass and Soma. World Trigger is somehow one of the few shows I can routinely watch every week.

 

On the subject of Heartcatch, I found the movie really enjoyable (more so than the other in-series movies). Like the story between the Baron and Loup-Garou a lot. Was also very pleased by the quality of the animation, fights and the scaled back usage of stock footage. Marine was on point with her usual adorable levels of stupid.

Oh wow, KyoAni literally cranked up the subtext this episode...

 

Ah the hell with it. There's no subtext -- it's straight up text.  The episode teases us that while Reina says she has a crush on Taki-sensei, she's really gay for Kumiko. Egads.

 

Also, the people in the band who didn't vote either way get demoted to shtters in my eyes.  It's one thing to be indecisive, it's another to simply avoid making a decision due to avoidance of guilt-via-association (in bullying Reina).  Seriously.  At least Asuka (to us viewers) has a somewhat valid excuse -- she doesn't really care either way, as long as her own playing isn't affected.

Although thank you for exposing shameless lesbianism, so now I get to ban discussion and pictures of it for being NSFW.

 

There's baiting, and there's actual yuri, and Euphonium is clearly the former -- the staff comments at the end of episode 9 pointed to them clearly having fun with what they were doing.  They're playing up the relationship between the two girls (which is supposed to be an unusual, if close friendship in the books) in that way deliberately, because it makes for prettier anime that way (and episode 8 was breathtaking) . XD

Tss, double negatives!

 

Yuri in anime, when done right (even in a case like Euphonium, which is basically just the studio going wild thematically), can be quite beautiful -- and indeed, in every scene we see Kumiko and Reina interacting with each other there's this obvious shine to things compared to all the other parts of the episode -- in the same way Yaoi could be amazing when done right.  Unfortunately, an open relationship between two people of the same gender isn't something that anime does right in many cases, which is why it's more often used as a subject of ridicule. Plus this is Japan, which isn't exactly the most open or progressive place for gender dialectics. 

 

Which is why we take what we can get, even if we know it's just the studio giving us the "wink wink, nod nod" routine.

Has anyone else here watched Uta No Prince Sama? That shit is hilarious and absurd.

 

I mean, it has Norio Wakamoto voicing the principal.

 

Speaking of...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also thought this was kind of neat; the guy that got me into Warhammer when I was a kid runs a miniatures painting studio now and one of his people did a Knights of Sidonia fig;
