Perhaps no tentacles porn but there was tentacles (and some porn ....kinda...Shinji is a sick boy)

And in my stupidity I left out some very cool anime.

Talking about the series Wu, what Shinji did in the movie is about a close to porn as it gets.

Mostly tame fanservice in Eva, including the infamous Gainax bounce.

Oh really ...what about the ending sceen of the later episodes with Misato and Kaji.

"No don't put that there"
"unnn unn uhhuh"
"what is that"

Paraphrased it is true and you didn't see anything but that scene casued a huge stink with the Japanese censors (Gainax releasd it with out going through them first).

True. I think the point David A was making however was you said you wanted more stuff by Anno and less robots, magical girls and tentacles.

Yet Neon Genesis has robots
and he worked on Re:Cutey Honey , which is a mixture of all three (robots, magical girl and tentacles). He was also attached to FLCL which also contained elements of all three.

Ok yes his work is not part of the generic mold but they do use standard conventions of anime.

If you want something that has non of those try

Actually, I was thinking that what probably happened is that Anno was watching some giant robo anime (or, even more likely, Power Rangers), and then he watched some tentacle porn, and then he came up with the idea for Eva.  Also, in between porno tapes, he probably had the nature channel on, and there was something about penguins.

As Nurdy says I have read the Hellsing manga up to volume 5. It is a really good read  and goes into things that the series seemed to glaze over (such as  why some people can be turned in ot Vampires and why some get turned into ghouls). You also find out whom is behind the creation of the fake vampires.

All in all it is very cool.

well I waited to post this so I could also give a review (but as I was at a beer festavile yesterday I will be keeping this short)

Xenosaga the animation

For those who do not know Xenosaga is an RPG made for the Playstaion 2. This is animated version of that story.

Now I have not played the game but I had heard good things which is why I watched the series. Not playing the game also means I can not compare it to the animation but it also means I can judge it as a stand alone effort.

Well the animation was very nice a went well with the 3D elements like the ships. The character designs were nice but there was somethig about the faces that did not look quite right.

As for the story. Well there do see to be elements that are not fully explained (maybe they do in the first or second game). The story was fairly well paced and I am intrigued to see how it continues so that is a good sign

all in all I give it a B

Re-loacted to conneticiut and Watched all of PARANOIA AGENT.

It alsmost seems unfiar to rate the series as a whole, an effective review would blow-by-blow each episode, since each epicode is a new persons story.  Still, There's nothing to realy do, but cut right to the heart of the matter, which is this:  If you watched this series, you watched it because you love Satoshi Kon.  I tell you, he delivers.

Jumping from person to person and story to story, Kon uses his more realistic, less cartoony settings to unleash a spectrum of animated, original characters in a non-formulaic vein.  It becomes clear to the viewer that every character is filtering their view of life through their paranoia, and tensing themselves into a corner from which there is no escape.  The only relief comes from the figure of Shonen Bat (Lil' Slugger)  A teenager on roller-blades with a bent aluminum (Aluminium) baseball bat.  How does Shonen Bat relieve these people?  By skating up behind them and bashing them over the head. 

THe seires begins with a 7-episode arc in which it is demnstrated that there is a connection between all the early slugger victims, for the remaining 6 episodes the series goes blatently a-realistic, where nothing is as it seems, and symbolsm trancends the symbolic to become the real.  It's something to see.

Kon re-visits the elements that made his three films truly great.  THis movie has the bent reality of Perfect Blue, the advetures of fancy that become reality from Millenium Actress, and the human quality of all the characters from Tokyo Godfathers.  Anyone who has not seen these films will brobably be taken back by the bold approach.  But wewther you have or not, anyone might find themselves swept up in this bizzare story.

Sounds in the film are outstanding, from the extolling orchestral opening (complete with yodelling) to the relaxing, but creepy enidng theme all the music is spot-on to the environment of paranoia agent.  Every voice actor for the Japanese is spot-on for the characters they perform (Mitsuishi Kotono Fans, don't miss an incredible double-preformance).  The English voice actors (From what episode I did watch) do not let the bold dialogue slide or go stale.  IN addition (As Kon mentioned in one of the commentaries) each episode has a distinct sound made to associate the screen action to the theme of the epsode, so pay attention to what your listening to.

My only complaints that I have with paranoia Agent may be that It just goes a bit too far.  Much Continuty is thrown out the window to immerse the viewer in a world where, as the director puts it, people and actions are not judged by cause and effect.  Whether the series goes over the top is up to the indiidual, and even I haven't made up my mind on it yet.

Still, overall, great series, it'll make you check over your shoulder at least once.

    Two reviews:

Spirited Away


I finally got around to seeing this, and I wasn't disappointed.  A girl named Chihiro and her parents are moving to their new home when they take a wrong turn and end up in the spirit world.  In order to survive, and to save her parents who have been turned into pigs, Chihiro must work in the bath house where the spirits come to relax.  Along the way, Chihiro makes new friends (and helps out an old one), and learns things about herself.

I haven't decided if I like this one more than Princess Mononoke in terms of the story, but visually this is Miyazaki's best work yet.  I can see why many people consider it his masterpiece.

R.O.D. the TV


I finished watching this last night, and I can say without exaggeration that this is one of the best anime series that I've ever seen.  This is a spin-off of Read or Die, but it's actually better than the original.  No, that's not a typo; the TV series really is better than the OAVs.  How is it better?  Let me count the ways:

  • The Paper Sisters: The main characters of this series are three sisters who share Yomiko Readman's ability to control paper.  The oldest is Michelle, a ditzy blonde who is actually more responsible than she appears to be.  Maggie is tall and very quiet, but also very brave.  The youngest is Anita, a bratty kid who doesn't share her sisters' love of books.  The three sisters each specialize in different uses of paper magic.  While they may not be as skilled as Yomiko, their use of teamwork more than makes up for it.
  • Nenene: The fourth lead character is Nenene Sumiregawa, a young author who was once friends with Yomiko.  After Nenene is attacked at a book signing, her editor hires the Paper Sisters to be her bodyguards.  Nenene is the thread that binds the overall storyline together, and connects this series to the OAVs.
  • Character Development: With only three episodes of non-stop action, Read or Die didn't have much room for character development.  With twenty-six episodes and a slower pace (at least for the first half of the series) the TV series allows for the characters to have a lot more depth.
  • Backstory: Another problem with the OAVs was that they didn't have time for a lot of explanations of what was going on.  As much as I liked Read or Die, it kind of felt like watching a sequel to something that I hadn't seen (probably because I never read the manga).  The TV series not only does a better job of explaining what's going on and why, but it also fills in more detail about the events of the OAVs.
  • Humor: While the OAVs did have some funny bits, the TV series is a lot funnier.  Which is not to say that it's a comedy; the TV series has as much action and adventure as the OAVs, it just has a lot of other good things as well.

ROD the TV disappointed me greatly. Maybe cause it's the fact I've only seen a few eps on Anime Unleashed, but what I saw was the life force of the OVA's being sucked out completely. The OVA's moved so fast, were so fun - and The TV just brought all that to a grinding halt, at least from what I saw. I should probably try watching the whole series in the original Japanese, just to make a better opinion, but I was sorely disappointed the first time I saw some episodes of it.

Now, on to my review:

Ninja Scroll
Finally got around to renting this movie a week ago. I loved every minute of it. Awesome fight scenes, a strong female character, a relentlessly cool main character, great animation - and ninjas! With finally seeing this, the Animatrix short "Program," and "Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust," I have become a Yoshiaki Kawajiri fan. "Ninja Scroll" was simply an excellent movie, through and through. HIGHLY reccomended.

anyway Reviews



RE: Cutey Honey

Now this was the first time I had seen any incarnation of Cutey Honey and for the most part I enjoyed it. This is most probably because it is utterly insane (think Puni Puni poemi with a more cohesive storyline). I am also sure there are certain members here who would also enjoy the copious amount of fan service (Honey's outfit for example is powered by her own energy, as she uses this up the outfit shrinks).

Basically it is the tale of the android Cutey Honey and her fight against the evil organisation Panther Claw (all of the tops memebers of which are female).

It's hard to take any of it seriously but it was fun enough.

B



Air

I'll let ANIDB do the desciption
Kunisaki Yukito is a traveller, ever seeking the `girl in the sky` from a legend passed down in his family. His journey takes him to a small seaside town, where he meets Misuzu, a girl who seems eager to become his friend. A story spanning a thousand years begins to unfold against the background of their peculiar relationship.

I really liked this series as it had some very lovely moments.

Even though the series is only 12 episodes long it is split into three arcs. The dream arc, the summer arc and the air arc. The dream and air arc take place in a contempory japanese setting while the summer arc takes place over 1000 years ago.

From what I have heard this series is based on a Japanese computer game. As I really liked the series and ones similar to it (Kimi Ga nozumu eien for example) I guess that certain games translate better into anime.

This is not a high action anime but a rather sedate one. I think it is well worth a watch.

Well, the pace is a lot slower than that of the OAVs, especially for the first half of the series, but the TV series focuses more on intrigue and suspense than on non-stop action.  Of course, if you like action, it has that too; episodes twelve and thirteen top anything from the OAVs.

This really is a series that you have to watch from beginning to end to fully appreciate it.  Some of the early episodes may seem like filler, but all of the "filler" episodes actually advance the plot in some way.  I don't know what difference watching it in Japanese would make, though.  I watched the English dub, which is excellent.

I saw eps. 13 and 14, and I'm reconsidering ROD the TV now...you were right, the early ones moved a tad slow - I'm still annoyed Yomiko suddenly has a British accent in the dub, though...it's really grating when she didn't have one in the dub for the OVA's...

But if you think about it, Yomiko really should have a British accent, so that's another thing about the TV series that's better than the OAVs.

In other anime related news, I found out the other day that my cousin and his girlfriend have a cat named Kagome.  My cousin is cooler than I thought.

But why should Yomiko have a British accent? The OVA's gave no indication she was British. None. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Nothing. I was under the impression she was Japanese, and just an agent for the British. There was no reason for her to suddenly have a British accent. Unless it's revealed in an episode of the series that she's British, then it'll make sense. But for right now, it's a whole steamin' pile of inconsistency at the moment.

I think that Yomiko is of mixed British/Japanese ancestry.  Readman isn't exactly a Japanese name after all.  Anyway, she almost certainly studied English in Britain, or at least learned from British teachers.

I did think that Yomiko's British accent was odd at first, but the more I think about it, the more I think that it was a mistake for her not to have a British accent in the OAVs.

Just watched the entire series (Okay, here's a hint, people: If you're gonna watch anime all day on your computer, get a chair with proper cushioning and a back that can move...) - all I can say is "wow." That was pretty damn good, actually. Now one of my favorite series.

However, I still think the British accent in the dub is wrong - mainly because Yomiko said in the series her parent's house was in Saitama, Japan. However, I luckily watched the Japanse audio version, and the same VA for Yomiko as in the OVAs, so that was satisfying enough.

I don't really see how the fact that her parents lived in Japan disproves anything I said, and she still has an English surname, but whatever.

So, when you watch it in Japanese, does Michelle make cat noises in her sleep, or was that an invention of the dub?

They should spend their money doing a film restoration of the original series as AnimEigo did with the Macross series.

Okay, sorry for the double post, but I just watched the movie Grave of the Fireflies last night, and have to let people know about this movie. Very, very, good movie. It ain't a happy movie, that's for sure, but it's really powerful. I'd reccommend it to pretty much everyone. Hell, if I were a history teacher (in high school or up), it would be one of the movies I'd show during WWII studies - it's that powerful.

True, but that doesn't necessarily mean it'll be bad.  It's possible for a sequel to not live up to the original, but still not suck.  That wasn't the case with the Star Wars prequels, but you never know.
