Today, I went to the Polymanga 2014 Japan Con in Montreux. One of the biggest Manga/Anime con in Europe, just behind Japan Expo in Paris.

I saw Patema Inverted or Sakasama no Patema and I really, really liked it.

It was a great and enjoyable film. The story is kind of your typical Girl meets Boy story but with a twist, the community where the girl comes from lives with the gravity reversed which means she falls upwards towards the sky.

The story in itself is very well executed with nice comedic elements and it always keeps you entertained but I think that may be due to the strange world they live in. They also did a good job of not going overboard in the details of the world and why the gravity is reversed and it has very good pacing without leaving any major plot holes.

The antagonist was quite formulaic and generic but I really didn't mind that, they did a good enough job to focus the story on Patema and Age, the two main characters and talking about those two, they are really appealing characters and they have great pairing.

Overall, this film gives a fresh new look on a familiar story. It is well executed and doesn't make the mistake of dragging too long or go overboard in the details and with pleasing art and animation, this film is surely a very good watch.

 

I will highly recommend you to watch this film, if it ever comes out on blu-ray or torrents or in cinemas (which is highly unlikely).

Thanks for the review

 

Fortune will have it that it is being released onto Blu Ray in 6 days!

Watching Akuma no Riddle. Still need to finish the 3rd episode but it's still a little iffy for me. I still don't know if it'll be on my to watch list or not.

Somehow reminded myself of this thing. Oldie but goodie.
Although I can't really say that I agree with it, because it's totally not my scene and I have no idea about it. But hey, it's funny. :-)

It does. It's a bit lighter and with less budget.

Dragon testicles. Huh.
Oh is that how they want to attract viewers now?
Is a magical wish-fulfillment boob highschool not enough these days?

Best anime ever.


But really, what anime is this character from?


Tea ceremony.


Like a boss.


Moar boss.


Gravity suit is the best suit.


No anime convention is complete without a Sailor Moon.


So cute! :3


Lol


For the nekopeoples.


Totally discreet NSFW stuff.

Bowei you need this too.


Ohey, it's ClieOS.


ELISA was wearing a fancy dress during her concert.




Hot dang that turned out pretty great I think. 100 ISO at the night rave. Someone was doing some fancy tricks with an LED-lit hula hoop.



Aha, a Shure SRH750DJ headphone being used by DJ Spunky. It's got a really punchy bass.


Vinyl switch.

'sup, guys.

Spend all of yesterday playing Star Fox Adventures. I was playing that game as a little kid, but I never got past a point a little over halfway the game back then. It was some kind of mini game that was just ridiculously difficult. Now I got it on third try biggrin.gif

It was a good game. Level design felt slightly repetitive, and the combat system was just outright boring. But other than that, I really enjoyed playing it.

8/10

Not that the guy in the gif can talk; he's a theoretical physicist. He's so dumb he probably can't even distinguish a tangent from a cotangent space. LOL.


...
I should really stop making mathematics jokes here. Nobody will understand me ;__;.

All I ever saw in Black Bullet were lolis and powers.


This.
Except for the Black Bullet part; haven't watched it.


While I do understand things like the use of plot devices, characters, camera angles, etc. To quite a deep level, I never use any such analysis to decide whether or not I like it. I just notice it and move on with it after that. In the end the only thing that matters is whether or not the show is interesting enough for me to watch or not.

@micey
Great shots!
The Kirby thing really made me laugh :D
Did you have a tripod with you?

I need this. How much was it?
Not that I can afford it or something, but I'm curious.

Ah, OK. When I scrolled down, it looked like the price was attached to a whole different figure, lol.
