I was going to make fun of Netflix because of what an obvious flop this was going to be from the start but apparently the GitS live-action turned a profit so I can't even blame them for thinking this was going to work.


GiTS Live action is pretty good TBH and the Battle Angel one is pretty decent too.


As in Joss? Because yeah, people kinda don't realize that only that guy pulled it off right (and it doesn't always hit home for that matter too).


TBH I'd like to see a Live Action Yu-Gi Oh! given how dope Detective Pikachu turned out to be.


Are you ready, talking bike?!

>look how fast I can read
Yet you fail to comprehend the basic gestalt of my postings, which, admittedly, weren't written in the most fashionable of manners. Try to actually read, not speed and feel free to attempt a reply at my initial postings once more.
>and so reluctance make it stretch out more
Why even have conversations if you're speedreading them? Filthy ESLs have no respect. You're projecting an emotion upon me while I simply list basic facts.
>that happens?
>they're for kids
If you mean Young Adults then I'd like to compare them to YA novels written in other languages. The excessiveness of words has to do with writing skill. With tension, lacking in LN translations, not with easy of reading. This excuse 'YA' or 'kids' is tired. It's not a novel argument, nor a convincing one.


>ook how fast I can read
If that's the meaning you got from my post you are the speedreading retard and not me, capiche Kizaru?
>Filthy ESLs
And yet you're the ignoramus unable to read into a sentence, as your response to the other anon further proves.
>projecting an emotion
No, no I am not. It's a basic fucking fact that the more reluctant you are to do something, the less likely you are to do it, unless an outside motivator is pushing you. If you are not into a style of writing and its contents you are going to be far less able to read it fast, unless you skim it. THOSE are basic facts you caustic faggot. Take a chill pill and get off the internet for a day.


Okay. Feel free to respond to the contents found within my initial post any time though. I don't care how fast you can read.

You're still allowed to respond to the contents found within my initial post. As I said before, you misconstrued the premise.

Well that was bad. Wasted potential as it's usual with many shows.

Most baffling parts were the deuteragonist working the big rich mafia guy that pits the poor to kill each other as a sport among other things and the "if you kill him you'll be as bad as him" at the end. Then there's the convenient powers the main couple exhibit to solve the big issue at the end.

Trigger hasn't been good since it was called Gainax, huh.

Baseball episode was pretty good.


File: 1627511971116.gif (3.34 MB, 500x281, BNA toony.gif)

BNA is mediocre; the plot is garbage, even by anime standards. Some radical liberal chick decides she wants wolf dick and finds out she can be EVEN MORE OPPRESSED THAN SHE ALREADY IS! Cue save the world montage. Barf. The characters have barely any depth to them with the exception of the wolf guy and then he's basically Vegeta and the final boss is basically a caricature of the mustache twirling supervillain. The art is okay but that's about it's only saving grace.


For such aa hyped show a few years back this thread sure is barren.


File: 1633447326995.jpg (116.65 KB, 640x360, seton academy.jpg)

I feel that BNA failed because unlike Beastars ( >>9810 ) or even My Gym Partner's a Monk- I mean Seton Academy, they don't really embrace the animal side of their ANIMAL anime. Even Killing Bites ( >>5136 ) is better at using that shit.


File: 1639431691896.png (527.91 KB, 852x1080, ClipboardImage.png)

BNA is just pure mediocrity rather than anything good. It had a few really good explorations of 'if a character could turn into a beast form, what would they use it for? What would it do to their social standing/normie friends?' I was hoping it'd explore that more but it went for some dumb religion/political corruption angle instead. None of its characters are that interesting, though the ones that I liked don't get the development.

The ep where Michiru leaves the city and just uses her rare time as a human enjoying being a regular girl with a friend of hers was a rare well written ep and showed what they could've done if they tried harder. The baseball ep was wild fun but could've been in any Trigger show. It being in this seemed especially weird cuz why would their weird death baseball be a popular sport in a world which seems relatively peaceful other than crime? I assume regular people are like the mom and pop Michiru lives with, and I don't see them enjoying televised murder.

The writing is extremely uneven. The fourth (or sixth? can't remember) episode, the one where Michiru hangs out with her dolphin friend on the mainland, stands out as utter dogshit and gets shockingly bad. Both the writers and to some extent the animators seem to have given up on that one.

The show never knows whether it wants to be slice of life or ridiculous action, and for that one ep it calmed down and you thought hey, maybe beastpeople CAN live outside the city providing they can keep it a secret. The story obviously goes straight back to the city after and the usual dumb shit, with Nazuna I thought the show could go back there but nahhh enjoy more HEY WE'RE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BAWWW. Then the bullshit revelations with the wolf guy and wow fuck this show.

What do you guys think about this show so far? This anime has been taking me for a whirl several times, sometimes within the same episode. I'm still not sure if the show is any good or not, though. I think this is one of those situations where the ending of the show can really make or break the entire experience but for now I'm enjoying the ride.

First few episodes and the tower episode made me expect a subtle Marxist theme but we didn't get that


Sounds too much like soy boy


I think it's worth watching for permise alone but it'll blue ball you with what it could've been

Could have been better. I respect it though


OP here. Yeah, I was really disappointed with the ending. I'm still confused on how much I really dislike the show. From an episode to episode experience, it captivated me. Overall, though, it just didn't land for me. I think my main point of contention is the main character turning into a wage slave and going "this is fine!" after experiencing complete freedom in the other world. A rewatch might make be better appreciate it but I'll wait a few years if not longer before doing that.

Impossible because no competent director works on this shit. Just look at cowboy bebop and how amateurish it looks.


Totally Not Mark got 155 videos Copyright Claimed by Toei recently, due to Japanse copyright law lacking real Fair Use legislation.


Not really a Hot Take but commentators like Hero Hiei are parasites, sucking off social media drama and bringing it out onto Youtube and other sites, they don't actually bring anything new or nuanced, just mediocre snark.


Anyone know if there's a group subbing Da Wang Rao Ming? Seems like it's only available on Tencent; the opening looks amazing.


Damn OP there's already a Donghua thread

1. Gotta disagree re: GitS1. I've always seen it as one of the best animated examples of less-is-more storytelling. It's barely 80 minutes long, but honestly, it manages to impart so much information about its characters and setting in its short runtime just through subtle visual cues and framing. The example that sticks out in memory off the top of my head is the short scene with Aramaki and the diplomat in the elevator near the beginning. Framing, dialogue, colors, everything tells you exactly what you need to know about these two.

2. Innocence is good, has parts that are great, but I think is weakened by A. some datedly ambitious CG, and B. the second half honestly just feels "off" in terms of pacing and tone. We go to the big cyberpunk slum, we have the obligatory Oshii montage and then we enter corpse guy's magical mansion of practical jokes, and then all of a sudden it's the climax, which honestly feels overblown given the stakes. Then Motoko shows up, gets a sad "goodbye" moment after she decides to peace out back to go play minecraft with skynet and wintermute, and the scene's attempt at pathos falls flat - the audience at this point, in the time frame of both movies, hasn't spent enough time with the movie timeline's version of Motoko to really give any more than a shrug once you get to the shot of the deactivated fuckdoll with the folk choir belting out one last line. It feels like they just sort of banked on people watching SAC and going "OHHHH MMMMYYY GGGOOOODDD IT'S MAJOR TITS."

3. Interesting you bring up the point about Patlabor 2, because there's an interview on the old limited edition set in which Oshii explicitly states that he saw GitS and P2 as companion pieces



And just to elaborate, that's the thing about Innocence - yeah, I get that it's a film of ideas, and I get that a major component of the movie's emotional arc is Batou grieving now that the Major is basically a minor cyber-deity and has to funnel all his affection into his dog just to cope, but again, this isn't a version of the Major the audience really has spent that much time with to get that kind of invested in. We see her for the duration of the first movie, in which she's very much depicted at arm's length compared to the manga and the show (which is fine, because GitS is a very cold movie by design, as Oshii often do), but Innocence's attempts to heighten the emotional stakes while building off of that foundation comes off as odd - not to mention, like I said earlier, the climax feels weirdly miscalculated. The ultimate stakes aren't much different from a random filler episode of the show, and yet Kenji Kawai's score is going absolutely apeshit as if Batou were about to get into a kickboxing match with the anti-christ or something. And yes, I get the movie is doing some weird meta thing where it's trying to explicitly tie its narrative arc to the progression of its themes and ideas, but honestly, that's something Oshii himself has done better elsewhere


Sure, Ghost in the Shell did a lot to emulate cinematic convention and certainly helped "elevate" animation as a medium for film (as if it ever needed to be), but as far as I'm concerned Mamoru Oshii has always been rather ambivalent to that kind of perception of his work. You might recall his qualms with Studio Ghibli when they really started to brand themselves as such at the height of Hayao Miyazaki's initial international success in the late 1990s and early 2000s, criticizing them for distancing themselves from the word "anime" and its associated adult-oriented, not-so-cinematic connotations. A lot of Japanese animators at the time were contemplating what exactly made animation distinct from film, when in actuality, and as Oshii once put it: "all film is becoming animation." I think it's tragic that so much of the "bad" CG composited anime from this period have yet to receive blu-ray releases. In my opinion, visually, they've aged much better than people think. It would be interesting to compare them all with the slew of cel-shaded anime we got in the 2010s but that's a different discussion.
Where would you say Oshii has done better? Urusei Yatsura 2: Beautiful Dreamer was my first thought, but that was twenty years ago up until that point. When it comes to Innocence, I think the Donna Haraway cameo that occurs fifteen minutes in should tell you everything you need to know about the film from thereon. That is to say, Innocence was never meant to be a direct sequel. In fact, it's much easier (and more interesting!) to talk about it as a standalone feature situated in the GITS franchise than one explicitly connected to the original 1995 film.


Lol, they weren't even depicted as good cops in the show. Still love them though.

Soy bastante privilegiado, de familia "bien", etc. . tengo algunos amigos menos privilegiados y que batallan más con su trabajo y aun así hacen el meme de "los pobres son pobres porque quieren". Ya sé que está medio cruel, pero me burlo de ellos diciéndoles que son más pobres que yo a pesar de que no hice nada especial para merecerlo. "Algun día podrás tener un jale como el mio, trabajar desde casa, con hueva, y ganar el triple de lo que ganas ahorita. El día que dejes de querer ser pobre, verás."

Me da asco esa actitud. La raza pobre jala mucho más que yo y gana miseria. Creo que estoy justificado en burlarme… no sé. Si conociera a tu amigo, le diría que según su ideologia, el mercado decidió que era un perdedor, y yo un ganador mucho más inteligente y capaz que él. Ponerle limón a la herida, a ver si se le quita lo pendejo.


No me gusta hablar español sinceramente.
