  1. Been a while since I posted here, but since I finally watched Zettai Live I thought it was a good time to return and psot my thoughts.I suppose it was an improvement over the last movie and having less of the Knights was always going to be be a good thing. But that said, it still cements itself as the most disappointing Macross installment of all for me. It just never clicked I said before and I say it again. Kawamori should hand over control of Macross to someone who will develop it and take it into a fresh direction, but that actually cares about writing and characters.
  2. Haven't checked into MW in a while, but with all that is going on I just had to check in. What a time to be alive as a Macross fans. English language releases of almost the entire catalogue. I'm speechless!! I need to ready my wallet. I hope they take the time and care to do this right and we get the releases in the right quality.
  3. I thought Kaguya-sama was going to be the best thing on this season, but Spy X Family has been everything as good and entertaining. It keeps on surprising me.
  4. As far as I'm concerned, Attack on Titan should have ended on that panel when they finally reached the sea. It would have been a logical and satisfying conclusion. The moment they started giving us all the Marley content things fell apart from a narrative perspective for me.
  5. So what are we looking at here? 3 Musical BD's?
  6. This has been a pretty good season with at least two great shows in Mushoku Tensei and Ousama Ranking which has been nothing short of a revelation. Add to that a very decent 86 second season and Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut. Good times.
  7. Keiko Nobumoto who wrote the screenplay to Macross Plus has passed away at the age of 57. Way too young. She penned so, so many of my favorite shows (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Tokyo Godfathers, Space Dandy). And she was the creator of another classic, Wolf's Rain. RIP.
  8. As a huge, huge Cowboy Bebop fan, I've been too afraid to start watching. Will probably do when some time has passed and I can judge it on it's own terms without the twitter/Reddit rants/hype rolling around. SO I cannot comment on the quality/lack of of this show. The cancellation tho, Netflix just takes waay to little time before they axe things.
  9. Or Lady M...ilia who then calls her ex-husbando to help out their granddaughter?
  10. Anyone else seen Beastars S2? The second season is not quite as good as the first imo.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. What a horrible thing for there to happen. Absolutely tragic news, so very sad.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. As long as there is a Char and they drop a colony on Sydney I'll be game
  24. 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.
