I'm assuming Big West is going to want to do new dubs/locs for most everything since only the OG Macross stuff, Plus, and Zero were officially localized by ADV back in the day?

The setting for this show is an interesting one. It's not that the Meiji Era never ended, but that it actually never happened at all. In this alternate history, the Tokugawa Shogunate never fell and the Meiji Restoration was never accomplished. It hasn't gone into the specifics of things yet, but the implication so far is that the oligarchs that led the revolution, either failed and/or were conquered by Western imperial powers. Since Kyushu (Where the leaders of the Meiji Restoration came from) is described as being occupied by the UK and France. The Tokugawa Shogunate was always totalitarian, and now we're seeing them do their usual thing with the help of modern tech, weird supernatural stuff, and some kinda Code Geass Sakuradite style magic power resource.Jouran: The Princess of Snow and Blood
In an alternate history Japan where the Meiji era never ended and the government has gone totalitarian, an assassin is part of a team to hunt down mutants who have merged their DNA with animals.
THAT's the name of the thing I thought this reminded me of. Yeah, it's definitely at least inspired by it.That said… is this a loose adaptation of Lady Snowblood?
I think that’s part of the reason it was easy to read Fairy Tail. Its action-packed, mostly breezy but sometimes there’s a surprising emotional weight in a backstory. This is where an otherwise basic ass series that I might have easily skipped made me give it some more episodes… with two twists, the latter one almost making me tear up at an otherwise EXTREMELY STANDARD series. If the show keeps making me cry and giving some tears to its antics, its problems will be more forgivable.
Maybe cry is a bit much but I remember being invested, particularly in their interesting take on the time jump. I feel like its been long enough that I only forget the broad strokes. And now I'm wondering if I'm thinking of the better One Piece moments. But Eden's Zero's first ep definitely for reals moved me. But it was also the show where one of the last big villains tried to orgasm everyone to death. Not a joke.I would be very interested in hearing you elaborate on what got you to (nearly) cry in Fairy Tail. I watched all of Fairy Tail intermittently through the years, and it's a weird situation wherein I definitely enjoyed it, but it became a kind of... anime slurry. I watched it, I kept watching it, but I seriously don't think I can recall anything more than a few distinct moments. But I liked it! I think!
I have almost zero exposure to the source material, but from what I gather the manga has almost universal acclaim, and things only get better from here.I’m just afraid even if the series stays good, it will still be downhill from here.
It's like a fantasy wolf-dog? No real canine has weirdo teeth like that. Those teeth actually kinda briefly took me out of the show because not only is there's zero evolutionary advantage to having teeth like that on a carnivore, but it would probably make a predator's job harder.a wolf (or dog?)
Fansubs hit for the third episode of Godzilla S.P. and man, this show is so good. Now this one can get a blanket rec w/o any caveats. Something I learned is that the show's writer, beyond just being a Real Writer (and not just someone who makes shlock like anime and light novels for a living) started life getting their doctorate in physics/mathematics. So the show is imbued with a scientific literacy that just lends everything a weight of realism and legitimacy that most writers writing sci-fi lack since they usually come from the perspective of an enthusiast rather than someone literate in the sciences.
If memory serves though, she stumbles a bit before crossing the finish line, being overwhelmed with indecision and personal doubt however.
This is literally a good 90% of gay media in anime/manga. Stuff created by straight people, with straight people as the intended audience. I don’t have the toolset to discuss this phenomena properly, but it’s a weird thing nonetheless.Its quite gay but the fact that the first episode centers heavily on a bland hetero love triangle makes me wonder if this is basically more targeted toward straight women who are into yaoi-type stuff.
No, I get all of that and it's worked very well into the show. Like a lot of the better shows about big punchy robots that pontificate on the nature of conflict and war, pathos is very important to Escaflowne. And it serves as the emotional core of the show up until the very end.In fairness
yep, i didn't really know anything about it going in, but my partner and I figured we'd take a look. There's no real spoilers in saying it's an emotional adventure considering the concept and like the first five minutes even are nothing if not austere. it's really beautiful, and I'm looking forward to seeing it roll on.Hey guys.
Make sure to watch To Your Eternity.
Just don't watch it before you go to bed. Y'all might need some time to decompress and raise your spirits a bit.
Edit: to the uninitiated, To Your Eternity is based on a manga, made by the same author who made A Silent Voice, so be ready for your emotions to get manipulated (in a good way).
