  1. Or Lady M...ilia who then calls her ex-husbando to help out their granddaughter?
  2. Anyone else seen Beastars S2? The second season is not quite as good as the first imo.
  3. Just one film? Impossible to choose for me. There's so many. And some of them are kinda bit bleak so they would be an unwise choice for just seeing for the rest of mu life.
  4. Thank you for sharing all your thoughts. It makes perfect sense to me. Nadia when I watched it back in the day, always seemed like a Proto NGE to me but I had kind of forgotten making those connections when watchin 3.0+1.0. I'm soon doing my rewatch of the rebuild films and will be paying more attention to these details.
  5. It has its own page, but I watched the final Evangelion film. I cannot believe its come to an end. IN regards to this season, its pretty poor. The only show that consistently wants me to come back for more is Sonny Boy.
  6. Just finished it. What a ride. To this day I still don't know if the Rebuild film's were necessary or just an act of extreme self indulgence by Anno to get his intellectual property away from Gainax. But they're a great retelling of the original story and this is a mirror to E of E in it's own way. It's a cleaner, more generous ending, coming from a more mature man who perhaps didn't feel the need of of crushing his own creation anymore. I still think my favorite Evangelion is Sadamoto's manga version, but this one does what it needs to do in it's own visually spectacular way.
  7. He can do so many things. I wouldn't put it past him to do a Shoujo K-Pop Macross with an all female Valkyrie squad.
  8. Could this be the legendary lady M?!
  9. Last season ended with a bang with Fruits Basket coming to a very heartfelt and emotional finale. Normally those kinds of shoujo shows are not for me, but this one really had a lot of good things going for it. 86 was a good watch as well. The mecha are a bit meh, but the story and worldbuilding are interesting enough. But by far my favorite shows were To Your Eternity and Megalobox 2. Top notch both of them. The latter just oozes old school cool too. The new season is not very impressive to be honest.
  10. What a horrible thing for there to happen. Absolutely tragic news, so very sad.
  11. I always found the premise a bit problematic (god I hate using the word but cannot find anything else). As an adult man, I cannot help putting myself in his shoes and think of at least 2,3 other ways in which to help a runaway teenage girl which doesn't imply letting her live alone in your tiny apartment. Kudos to him for his altruism, but damn if it isn't the wrong way to handle things. Makes for some great drama tho. 86 and To Your Eternity are still the best things this season for me. The latter really manages to change the tone from episode to episode but in a good way.
  12. I agree with you to some extent. There's so much anime out there that is mainstream and part of the popular culture now. The mecha genre is scuffed at by younger fans as well. If BW and HG could have done this deal 4,5 years ago then a big Macross release could have had a bigger impact. If they had done it when Frontier came out, Macross would be colossal.
  13. Man, this hits hard, real hard. RIP to the greatest mangaka of all. He will be missed. I hope they don't come up with any stupid ideas like continuing to the story. You cannot recreate his art style in any way shape or form.
  14. My late contribution to the topic. I think there will be plenty more Macross. Kawamori is the youngest looking 60 year old on the planet and these directors keep working well into their seventies. And he's not afraid to keep on with the times. Would like to have a fresh voice in the show though. Would like to see what someone else can do with the Macross core concept.
  15. I take back my words about it being an underwhelming season. There's a couple of really solid shows that had flown under my radar. 86- lots of Code Geass vibes from this one. Vivy's Fluorite's Eye Song- Violet Evergarden meets Steins Gate. To Your Eternity- might end up being the best of the lot. Last episode was Princess Mononoke meet some cosmic sci fi
  16. As long as there is a Char and they drop a colony on Sydney I'll be game
  17. I like the idea of it being a work of fiction inside of other Macross' series. Makes for a troublefree watch without the headaches of continuity.
  18. The big question here that no one is discussing. Can our wallets sustain the inevitable oncoming onslaught?
  19. Well the manga is finished and in my opinion it's a pretty mediocre finale for what is one of the great manga/anime of our time. Never been too crazy about the story
  20. This season is pretty underwhelming, but Megalobox 2 and Fruits Basket are delivering as expected.
  21. Ha, ha,ha, god that's just awful. I've seen high school art that's of a higher standard. No, my point was worrying about how Harmony Gold might interpret the agreement when it comes to SDFM characters that appear in other Macross shows. For example, Maximilian Jenius and Miria? You cannot have M7 without them. Focker in Zero? II, Plus, Frontier and Delta have no issues of this kind.
  22. I’m over the moon. Finally it is happening. I knew the grip was loosening due to BW slowly but deliberately chipping away at HG’s license stranglehold, but seeing this happen is unexpected. i wonder how Kawamori feels about HG still keeping rights over some of the characters.
  23. Papagane is a hilarious character and Koyasu does a perfect job bringing out his zaniness.
  24. This season has been a bit hit and miss for me. Two of the best things this season are Attack on Titan and Horimiya but being familiar with the source material [spoiler]
  25. It is a rather unique scene even for the standards of the fetish creating locomotive that is manga/anime.
