I tried to watch it again, from older eyes; I couldn't make it more than a couple episodes. I might give it a more earnest try; but there was a ton of whinging sooo..

I remember watching it for the first time over a decade ago, and couldn't stand Shinji. I still can't, but the rest of the show still is very good.

Perhaps at some point, every father is suppose to educate their male offspring on how to obtain females.

Yet, with the advent of Anim00 and Vidya,  it may be the case that several generations of fathers have themselves skipped such lessons..

So, segments of society end up with dees'kiz only specced wit Mad-dota-skillz (Shinji)

I just want to celebrate that we are mid-way into the first season of A Certain Scientific Accelerator.
It is a sequel to the A Certain Magical Index and A Certain Scientific Railgun series.

<removed>

This tune was apparently #1 on the charts in Japan for a while.
I didn't know anime music was this big...

no wonder I was having trouble finding this thread, last post was in Oct :)

anyway, just watched One Punch S2 and boy what a let down after such a long hiatus. I was expecting the writers to be cooking up some phenomenal anime-trope breaking plot, but instead they took one of the few animes parodying animes and made it just like every other anime. What a ****ing let down, and how completely boring.

I guess I expected too much out of a series that hinged on the mc being a mcguffin, but they could have at least TRIED to make the 2nd season interesting or different than every other "superheroes live amongst us" anime out there. I don't even care about the conclusion of this ****ty hero killer plot.

One Punch, you're just another basic ***** now :(

I felt the same way about Mob Psycho 100. :(

I really wanted to love it's second season, but even though it was unique, I just didn't get into it like the first.

I really liked how both were as you were saying, poking at the genres in very effective ways, but they've seem to have settled.

Didn't really like mob 100 all that much, even S1,  but then it just got kinda lame in S2

But overall, the problem is that it's probably meant for younger people, and Tp4 is just old.

Evangelion Bluray looks really gud'

Original series made using Optical, so there's alot of Film Grain. Does wonders for gradients and soft details.

Very Grain, Much Analog

Am I the only one who thinks Evangelion is super boring, and all the characters are really dislikeable and annoying? Really some of the most annoying characters ever.

Overall, mechas are not as tied to the story as other anime genres.

Mecha fans only need enough plot to Tie all the mecha tech and upgrade paths together.

None of the other stuff really matters as long as the Mechas look Kewl..

1- 10,   10 being OutlawStar.



Oof, You're trying to make me rewatch stuff. I'll say... It has Berserk vibes for me personally, in that, I like Berzerk for similar reasons as this show. Dark Ages, Vikings..Great story. It's quite gory. I'm surprised it was on amazon prime as well.

So hm. Berserk, without demons? The action that it has is good, but it's not -hyper-stylized or the main draw of the anime; but more represented as if these characters were larger than life and someone was telling a story about the characters.. "And then! He picked up a stick as big as a tree! And hurled it at his enemies!". Exaggerated, but based in reality I would describe it.

Even if you didn't like it; it would be interesting to hear a perspective counter to everyone else's so far.

Off the top of my head, nothing really jumps out with guts and viscera like that. I know I've watched some gratuitous stuff, I just have bad memory. Cartoon guts and gore, is still gore but there is that barrier there.

This clip from Blood C is pretty brutal.

Shock horror wise, the most uncomfortable movie I've watched is most likely "A Serbian Film"; However I don't remember if it's truly that gory, but just extremely uncomfortable to watch. If you haven't seen the film, I would absolutely not watch it.

I only mentioned the gore about Vinland, as a friend of mine who I recommended it to is not a fan of gore at all, so I had to preface his watch with that warning.

Dang, checking out some of these top goriest anime lists, I actually haven't seen quite a few of them and now I have a new quest. This video has some nutty ones too:

Finally finished the Otaku recommended watch order for Evangelion,   1-20, 21'-24' Director's cut, 25'-26' (End of Evangelion)

Younger Tp4 didn't understand the anime at all.

Older Tp4 has more life-xp to project in terms of interpretations.  But overall, it's not very clear if the author (Yoshiyuki Sadamoto) really had a profound sub-plot. If he did, it was not cohesively formed, a few scattered ideas based on the dangers of the nuclear triad as perceived in the early era. Of course Today, we know that the triad is not philosophical, it is merely a skyscraper built without toilets. <hahahahahah>

Looking at the -discussions- by the work's fan,  Tp4 isn't high/mighty,  but these fans are almost certainly only superficially intelligent and short on books..

Zomg, Batman Beyond came out on the Bluray.

It looks so gud.  Apparently only 41 of 52 episodes had undamaged film for rescanning, the other 11 damaged episodes were upscaled from Digibeta.

Nonetheless, Glad all of season 1 is intact. There's some light degrain-algorithm used, but it's light, not destructively imposed.

Screenshots below are 4K uprezed, Zoom in to chk out dat grain detail.
