  1. Demon Slayer ended on a big high. Art and animation are top notch as always. It's a shame about the Dumb and Dumber characters that ruined every scene they were in with their ceaseless screaming.
  2. Just finished the second season of Mindhunter on Netflix and I'm on to the second season of The Terror on Amazon Prime. The former was a bit meh after the splendid first season.
  3. Right. So now we have a confirmation that the movie is coming out in 2020. We also get teased a new Valk and the possibility of a sixth member for Walkure. Will the fan favorite theory of Mirage joining the girls onstage become a reality. We're going to have to wait and see.
  4. I hate to quote Josef Stalin but he had a good point when he said that "quantity has a quality all of its own"
  5. Did you watch the entire 49 episode run at 2x speed?
  6. This current season has been really disappointing. Even some of the shows that started strong lost their oomph soon (Dr. Stone and Fire Force) and most of the others were pretty bad to begin with. I hope the fall season is better.
  7. Yeah, this is one of the very few cases were the adaptation might surpass the source material. Artland and our good ole Noboru Ishiguro did a spectacular job with the LOGH OVA. They simply nailed it. And using a classical musical score just added a bucketload of oomph to the series. Everything is better with Mahler in the background. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed reading the novels too.
  8. I must admit I've lost faith in any further Macross shows being any good storywise. It's a Satelight thing. When was the last time Satelight made a show that had an interesting story with engaging characters? Visuals, yes, they do well, and some of their art, design and animation is top of the line. But storytelling? They keep on pumping one forgettable show after another (Nobunaga the Fool, M3, Pandora, World End, Ragnastrike Angels etc etc). Yes, they made Log Horizon but that was an adaptation of a series of decent novels, so Satelight had a decent story and characters to adapt in the first place. I don't think they've done anything original work since Macross Frontier that I thoroughly enjoyed Like many artists, Kawamori peaked as a creator in his 20's and 30's (DYRL, Plus, Escaflowne, Arjuna etc). Still a top notch mechanical designer (and I still think he's really good at creating and designing worlds).
  9. Love it. Where is this located?
  10. Big West and an Italian representative are currently going through a process to secure the rights for the word "Macross" for several types of merchandise in the European Union (they already have secured the trademark to Macross Delta). HG is of course opposing this (you can say a lot of things about their creative staff, but their legal department is absolutely formidable). Big West has a pretty decent chance in the EU system, which is much more sympathetic to original creators of content/work than marketers/distributors.
  11. Holiday's are over and daily life is back which means binging on the summer series. And the invitable cull. The survivors are as follows: Vinland Saga: No brainer. I'm a big, big fan of the manga and so far Studio I.G is doing a stellar job with the adaptation. The changes have not disturbed the flow of the stories and while it has some of that cheap CGI that all seinen series seem to be saddled with, its not enough to ruin the action scenes. Fire Force: really dig the art and the world building. Really hawt character designs too. Dr. Stone: Crazy premise and tackles some interesting moral questions. Visuals are ok too. Dumbell Nan Kilo Moteru: High school girls working out in a gym with muscle guys. I always watch a "light" shallow series a season. This is it for me. Dungeon 2: We need more AIZ. Dropped: Demon Slayer. Just some weeks ago I was raving about the art and animation. Unfortunately, the story has a massive mood shift around episode 10 and takes a turn for the farcical with some loud comic relief characters suddenly taking up a lot of screen time. A shame really.
  12. I was really digging Demon slayer too
  13. Angry is an understatement. Seething with volcanic fury is more like it. i hate Tatsunoko as much as HG now. Why?! i hope Big West can continue with it’s slow deliberate efforts to reclaim its name and copyrights in other markets.
  14. Guys, check out Fire Force. Art, animation is all top notch and a premise that’s a bit different to what we’re used to.
