Bridge Bunny (7/15)



  1. LOL! Now I see where your problem mainly lies. Part of it's your assuming. "People" call 3D CG, CG because that's what they 'generally' associate it with. Anime fans have known for a while now that most anime is done on computer. But your main issue is Human made vs Computer made(generated). The designs are ALL Human made, thus ALL of the CG is Human made, but generated on the Computer. The Computer's don't make anything except what they are told to make. Save your brain and consider the computer as today's pencil. Well until Singularity hits then we're all screwed! *facepalm* 3D cg vs 2D hand generated. You can not compare mechanical 3D vs mechanical 2D. One is technical 'perfect' everytime vs one that 'perfect' from an artistic viewpoint. *sigh* (gods i hate that stupid kindergarden debate) Choreography is the ONLY viable way to compare, and then that's full on subjective. IMO. You should go watch Moonlight Mile.
  2. Online Word of mouth or actual public word of mouth? But anyways ep 7 had plenty of feeling like a mid-series show, including the op & ed changes. I'm looking for a much accelerated story to push through whatever they are attempting. The flat out lack of story driving underlying plot is the gapping sekku(spl) of this series. The 3D hasn't changed a wit, still jarring changes between 2D scenes & 3D ones. Also it looked like quite a close copy of Mai-Hime ep7 with the rescue scene & the magical girl transform BS during the concert/battle. Nearly ROFL'ed outta my chair at how bad it was. Only REAL neat thing was that they've turned each Macross Fleet into a bunch of mini-nations that show that the NUN is about as worthless as it's original roots (kawa really has a beef with govt doesn't he!). So the situation could easily be considered an anime version of THE CULTURE, except for the fighter planes....
  3. Given how it was only a different VP on the Giant Monster that's high praise!
  4. I'm not surprised. Given how the ratings have been low since the beginning and the "plot" has only kicked in. Throw in the multiple other "School Drama's" that have come before and that they have been less flat and far more engrossing than M:F. AND that it's also being shown when Gundam 00, and CodeG are also on. The low ratings are not surprising at all! Music & Mecha action can only carry an anime so far and the characters and story have to carry it the rest of the way.
  5. The way that M:F is going I wouldn't doubt that for a second!!
  6. It's handwavium Graham, nothing more. Michel's rifle didn't kill the yellow one that was chasing down Alto in the beginning and it only "killed" the red one because it was a "head shot" handwavium hax. I'd buy the "different tatics" argument if the red one in the city wasn't killed of with a hax "laxor knife" via Gundam. The 'enemy' is only as tough as the plot needs it to be. (aka Plot Armor)
  7. After watching M7 and Mai Hime, would you expect anything else? Besides with low expectations if it turns "good" then you are pleasantly suprised!
  8. I suggest that you re-read those SW "Art of..." books because many, if not all, of those models were concept sculpts and not practical models. Sculpts that were then scanned into digital by the folks at ILM. Lucas learned a lot from Ep 1 and eps 2 & 3 show that with a better mixture of FX. Also those SW were polished by digital artists to ensure it worked. @JsARCLIGHT, I completely agree with you! That 'impossible shot' tends to break the immersion that the producer/director/writer intents with the scene/world. Very distracting.
  9. None of the above. I just wanna watch to see if it turns into a Train Wreck like M7 was (though if "music" was up there...). It's off to a great start too!! Should go completely south well before ep 12.
  10. CG is Computer Generated and ALL digital work IS cg. Plenty of positive uses, just a continuing lack of time, money, and talent to be of use. Especially today when not even CG work is fast or cheap enough.
  11. The "cat" is just to far outta the bag for the AUN to play much of a part anymore.
  12. 3D in anime is extremely hard to get 'right'. Strain got the closest before they brought in the spaceships then it went down hill. Old school SDF has line detail that "implies" something else and a new 3D versions have huge amounts of easily seen detail. So far the 2 design ideals just haven't met. Macross Frontier is a clean example of mismatched ideals. With it's low end character detail and it's high end mechanical detail. In time when the 20's-30's somethings have died off and they are willing to throw money at getting it right.
  13. The art in NOEIN had issues as fast as the second episode. The quality jumps and fluxs through it and well before & by ep 10 was showing a lack of quality. As for it's art style it was the manga author's style. Not a budgetary or for artistic reasons. Strain was slightly more consistent, but like all anime it suffered as well. Consistence is a myth in art and anime. BAWHAHAHAHA!!
  14. Klan is about the only character in MF that is likable because she doesn't put up a front and is the physical embodiment of the tsundere. edit: No graphic or vulgar descriptions/depictions of sex or sexual content. (ie typical mod stupidity. it was censored!)
  15. Yeah Ep 4 was QUALITY anime. As for the differences between the 3 eps.. The issue is distance from viewpoint, "Hey the audience doesn't need fine detail when the face is nearly 100-150 meters away.", and a lack of QC'ing. It's all stuff that usually gets touched up on the post TV releases.
