BTW, I just noticed that you also made a few comments to Assiman about High School of the Dead, and thought I'd comment since I literally just finished watching the show last week. I might still be influenced by the "newness" of the show, and might change my opinion about it if I ever watch it a second time, but I feel as though you were a little harsh in the criticism of the show. The concept behind the show, as far as I can see, is a zombie action flick in ecchi anime form. Personally, I enjoy a B-rated zombie movie every one in a while (although I usually avoid scary and/or ultra-violent shows like Saw), and love the Living Dead series. If you come into the show looking for a zombie flick, I don't think there's anything to be disappointed about. And looking at the presence of sexuality in movies like Day of the Living Dead (remember the sex scene in the department store?) and the Freddie/Jason movies, the ecchi element seems like a natural choice to make. I mean, the show is clearly meant to be one of those comedy horrors, where the absuridy of it all is hilarious. Granted, I can't really say that there is anything particularly deep about the show. But it does offer something to say about human nature in the interaction between Takashi and Saeko (in my opinion, the two most interesting characters), in particular during the chapel episode. That said, I knew what I was in for after the first few episodes, and I didn't come out disappointed at the other end. It's like going to see an Indiana Jones or Star Wars film. You know that it won't be the best film out there, so it doesn't really make sense to evaluate it relative to all other shows, but instead it is better to ask "was this a good Indiana Jones film or did it not meet my expectations of the franchise?". Feel free to take this up and argue the counterpoints. Also, are you sure that the show finished with episode 13? I got the impression that it would be continued with a second season. If it is having a second second, I think there's still plenty of opportunity for the show to turn out to be an above-average anime. I haven't read the manga though (I rarely read the mangas, as I usually watch the shows first, and can't stand to see the differences between that usually arise in the translation from manga to anime or vice versa) so I don't know how it compares with the source material. Also, could you please point out a few particular moments in the show where the CGI is bad? What makes it "bad"? I have little technical expertise with regards to digital animation (and animation in general, for that matter), so I don't usually look at shows in terms of production values, but whether or not they look good as "art". Summing it up, while HOTD is no GITS2: Innocence, I think that within the horror/zombie genre, HOTD was good/ entertaining. Your thoughts?
Hey Rince, finals are over so I can talk. Here's what's up with me in terms of anime: I'm pretty close to finishing Seirei no Moribito which is a pretty decent show, and I just finished watching Seitokai Yakuindomo, an absolutely horrible show with little more than crude sexual humor and bad art. In between watching every episode of SM, I'm watching Gurren Lagann. So far I've found this show to be way overrated and terribly annoying. I dislike the art style, the characters (their design and personalites), the mech design, the combat, and the story/setting. Despite the obvious attempt at bastardizing the mech genre by adding comedy, I find the humor to be only mildly amusing. So far, the mech design in particular has been annoying, as I'm so used to watching gundam and other shows with less goofy designs. Also, I find GL to be in great contrast to Shikabane Hime, my current personal favorite, which was also animated by Gainax only a year after GL came out. While I might not like it, I can appreciate GL for what it is, as Gurren Lagann is somewhat similar in artstyle and story dynamics to FLCL, another show for which Gainax is famous. Lately, I've been interested in finding and watching some serious romance anime, the reason being that so far I haven't been exposed to this genre very much. After I finish SM, I plan to watch something "light", so I will probably start watching Love Hina and/or Ghost Hunt (the dark story and color template is interesting to me, and one of the reasons I love SH so much). In the relative future, I hope to find a show that is thought-provoking and has compelling art.
Så alt på barneskolen jeg.. og ser Buffy igjen på tv2 sumo!
Yeah, I gave Samurai Deeper Kyo 2.5/5 because like 1/3 of the series were actually pretty good. It had some great scenes here and there. It also has some nostalgic value to me :D Back in the day it was really dissapointing, but now I've seen so many shitty animes that I can respect SDK some more.
Lain is pretty cool shit and the final episode was fantastic. I felt bad however for some of the characters, like that one guy in the black suit. It's also kinda strange how close Serial Experiments Lain is to reality these days. They started making it like 12 years ago and not everyone used the internet back in the day, but these days many people are obsessed with it. I think SEL really did predict future, lol.
I've read a lot of positive things about City Hunter and I would love to watch some of it sometime. It's just that I'm too lazy to even watch anything these days. I just started Mobile Suit Victory Gundam and I'm pretty sure it takes months for me to actually finish it :D
While the Samurai Deeper Kyo anime is so mediocore that it's just flat out bad, the original manga is absolutely wonderful. The manga wasn't finished when they started making the anime, so that explains a lot.
08th ms team had some good stuff in it, I liked the main character and his love interest a lot. The bad guy was also pretty cool and memorable, but other characters were mostly annoying.
