Yup. All of that epicness. There are so many references and they're integrated so well. Animation and art style was amazing.

 

This. Although, I wouldn't really call it info-dumping though.

I saw episode 1 of the first season. I started falling asleep...no joke. I wasn't even tired. IT was just so relaxing and mellow. 

 

Gonna take a look see of the mahou seitoukai animes first

 

Captain Earth is getting very good feedback. It's made by bones which is why I think its good so far

Mushishi is a very relaxing series. Nice series to watch on a gloomy, rainy day.

It made it worse for me actually. Fully aware that it is just masking life's problems makes it all the worse for me

Uber awesome high res anime wallpaper album. Some NSFW pics. Most 1920x1080 and higher.


 

I try to think of most people as moderates having good opinions on the world.....but almost everyone I meet fails this expectation.

 

Some highly priveledged girl in a sorrority living life's wonders just told me that white rice sucks, and those that eat it are taking up too much resources and that China has a large carbon footprint.

 

First of all, rice is literally saving the live's of 3-4billion people right now. And second of all, China does not have the largest carbon footprint even. The USA does. Difference being that USA's emissions are generally much better, regulated, than the other's. (sources vary on this)

 

Heard some other dumb stuff tonight but whatever.

I also finished reading JoJo part 6 the other day. This is the part I enjoyed the most so far.
Be prepared for part 7 when you're starting. Won't spoil it for you, but it's a magnificent journey. ☺

Maybe it was about JoJo. You're missing out on all the fun, one of the better long running franchise. And David Production has cleaned up and improved while maintaining homage to Araki's art style too masterfully, you're lucky you didn't have to go through JoJo manga km part 1 art.

There's nothing wrong with being generic, atleast I buy this stuff. And they wouldn't have made it if there wasn't a market for it. wink.gif
Sadly agreed. Generic peasants are a necessary evil.

Do I need to see Season 1 of both of these to watch these? Most say no as Mushishi is episodic and for some reaoson, people are saying ep 1 of Jojo new season is fine to just start out on.

Yes, you need S1 for Jojo, it won't make any sense otherwise.

Not sure about mushishi, not following the series.

No, Bowie,you don't need S1 for Jojo. Would be nice, but other than dfor the family history, which iirc isn't too big, and whatever family history used as the plot point is pretty straight forward and cleanly explained. Trust the guy got into JoJo before it was cool.

Wow, 4 pages of anime talk on the anime thread! Good work guys! Let me interrupt by saying I haven't watched anything new today, but increased the number of headphones I've listened to by probably 20% today...

Gatcha gatcha on jojo

 

I'm not growing up. That was just....a bit terrible was all.

I know right?

Captain Earth reminded me of Heroman so I almost didn't watch it.

 

Good graphics and I believe it is going to be good. But the cliche marketing bait of everything in the first 2 mins is getting old

old dude questioning me is talking to me about my future and expectations right now as well. screw that guy

......I see bones is targeting their target market fairly well right now.

I shouldn't be laughing at the serious parts of Captain Earth but I am

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Like when the kids dad died. IT was so comedic

And then the libido injection! LOL

Quad post

 

Captain Earth is like Season 3 of Valvrave. You need to shut off your brain to watch it.

 

Some guy messed up science calculations as well.

 

The anime said that the target was 32,000km from Earth incomming from Moon. (the screen showed the object to be halfway). This is untrue. Distance from Earth's surface to Moon's surface is abotu 384,000km. 

 

Next, it stated the object was flying in at 50meters per second. 

 

At it's current position of 32,000km away flying at a steady 50m/s. 

 

It would take 640000 seconds or 10666minutes or 177 hours for the object to reach Earth.

 

 

.......


Following are anime I have already demo'd for this season and their two ratings given in imperial rating for objectivity and enjoyability

 

Dragonaut Academy

Overall: 4/10

Enjoyability: 6/10

 

Captain Earth:

Overall: 6/10

Enjoyability: 3/10


Mahouka

 

....Did they just put random ass dots on the map?

 

Did they just put an Engrish poster up?

lol

And the final map they made

 

If this got o ut, they would piss A LOT A LOT A LOT of countries off...

 

China gets inner mongolia taken away into a zone nobody cares about and somehow invades russian territory above Korea and takes over all of Korea and Taiwan. While Japan...is still left with the towering new Soviet Republic alive.

 

....in this scenario of a Soviet State being created again and China owning the koreas, parts of Russia, possibility some of South East Asia, and Taiwan.....Japan won't be on the map. Also, Japan is WAY too fricking big on the map.

Federation of India and Persia?......Persia??? WTF you talking about. Not to mention the demograhics and ethnic issues of that part of the world are far far divided. Muslim + Hindu with a mutual hate between many of the countries they just grouped together (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan etc)?

Saudia Arabia gets a spot on the map, but a world military power, Turkey isn't while being above it?

 

What about Africa......going to hell, and despite all these problems, with an American invasion of Canada (considering UK is with East EU and a different color, one can only guess that it implies an invasion of Canada) that Australia is still its own country?

 

...my mind is being blown by the fact that showing this map to the UN itself could spark the next 3rd world war. 
 

 

 

Also, the girl with the sniper in the first few scenes after the map, seems to be holding a oddly drawn and semi inspired Chinese indigenous M99 Anti Material Rifle. This gun has gained a lot of popularity (or should I say recognition) in the recent year due to its usage in Syria. 

 

I guess you can argue its also similar to a Barett, but the plain sides of the gun in show is more similar to the M99

 

 

I can definatelly see why Soup-kun disliked this show. Imo-mance in the first few moments. 

 

Shaolin monk dance? lol

 

 

I like this show :)

Ending commentary was weird...and unneeded 

 

 

Overall: 6/10 (good)

Enjoyability: 7/10 (very quite good)

Look.... nobody said it was set in this universe......

It just happened to have some similarity with our universe.... both animes.

 

I guess you could say my brain is always off when watching anime :p

Well generally, anime like this are typically for the MOST part in a way, based upon our world

 

My brain isn't....the map in Mahouka could start world war 3 by itself if you asked world powers to discuss it.

 

The shalin part of that episode was so lol as well

 

I liked it though. Very mysterious, and very rare premise in terms of having dual equally important MC's that equally have mystery's attached to it.

 

But yeah, Captain Earth is the new Valvrave it seems. Either you brain has to be turned off when you watch it, or else you will need to get panda a puke bucket.

 

 

About to watch the Beautiful World.

Never heard of it. Will have to check it out if I have the time.

 

 

As for Dragonar....... So many cliches thrown in at 10 minutes, that popular president, uppity princess, and a ojousama type at the start of the festival talk...... urrgghhhh. I can almost see a Tsundere popping up somewhere.
