WTF happened to the artwork?? frown.gif
ran out of budget?

Welp... 2 eps left. I really do hope this will somehow live up to being a work of gen's however slim the chance might be.
I didn't really notice that big of a change...
I'm pissed that shingeki uses some still images instead of being fully animated >_<<br />

All gone.

Now it's like watching everything through a puddle of mud. Brown, grey and black wherever you look.
It's not only that, this time some of the facial features looks strange too.....
That's one thing I did notice was weird on this last episode of gargantia: the facial expressions of the background characters...
Lol what the hell, I got a Spanish ad on that video...
Really google? Do people in my area speak Spanish THAT much to where you throw out random ads in Spanish??? mad.gif

@Suisei no Gargantia 11

Not really noticing the problem with facial features...

 

It's funny, does the story take place in the "Sea of Fog" (or whatever it's called) to reduce drawing demands?  Reminds me of the Fog of War in the olden days of early 3D games to limit the number of polygons drawn far away and at the same time prevent the disconcerting sight of objects and characters suddenly popping up in the middle distance tongue.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The lines of battle have been drawn: on the one side we have the Galactic Alliance, where every person is a cog in a giant war machine; on the other side we have the natives, lazing about and squabbling amongst themselves without a care in the world.  The story leaves no doubt as to which side is the villian.

I think the story is a metaphor for democratic capitalistic states vs totalitarian regimes: the former an unruly lot of people squabbling amongst themselves but often finding prosperity, seemingly by accident; the latter being a purpose-built war machine with every human member being a cog therein.

I find it ironic, however, that the land of the free is a sparsely populated, "verduous" planet, when democracy, peace and capitalism have proven in real life to lead to population explosion and ecological calamity.  Totalitarian regimes have actually done more to keep the planet sparsely populated and "verduous" for thousands of years, by means of directing the members of different totalitarian regimes to spill the guts out of each other.

 

Perhaps that's all totalitarian regimes are ever destined to do, wage war on each other (China being a notable current day exception), thus the Galactic Alliance deserves to be demonized.  Nevertheless, I couldn't help but think that the current world could use a little totalitarian direction, for, like, birth control, environmental conservation and concentrating our formidable research muscle on finding a habitable extrasolar planet and finding a way to GTFO of Earth before our already-committed ecological mistakes turn the world into sludge.

 

There were a lot more things I thought about while watching the episode and I rewrote the spoiler several times.  I started writing the spoiler intending to lambast Gen for idealizing the status quo, and I still think he's guilty of that; however the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that the truth about the world is so complicated that I don't even know what the truth is, and whatever it is, it surely won't make a good story.

Unfortunately, it seems Gen (or rather just his sub-writers since he only personally wrote the 1st and last episode) are doing a fairly generic story.

I LOVE music that makes me feel like me brain is getting scrambled while my body is getting beaten to pulp :D
Who needs stupid easy listening stuff, when you can have albums that take five ore more sittings to understand?

I really liked the part around the middle of the song. Other than that, pretty meh to be honest. Nothing really kickass.



And since we're sharing music:


Or, if you would like something lighter from the band, check the instrumental. One of my favourite ever!

I really really like music from people who really mastered their instruments and use the full potential of them.

Fretless bass is best bass!

No idea, maybe because he's the main writer?

Since I am responsible for composing the series, I took the first and the last episode for myself. You could say the first episode serves as a handhold for other writers so that they can get a feel for how I would like them to write by showing them the taste I am going for. The first episode needs to be done by the composer.

Yup, I LOVE that kind of music as well! rolleyes.gif

This one on the other hand, I really like. Never heard of them before (not really into Technical Death - most of the stuff is pretty boring, frankly), but will probably check the rest as well... Thanks! :-)

Because his name is famous and can sell anime? And probably the chief writer or something.

And tbh the other writers did a mediocre job as a whole. Not surprised if there's going to be a "rewrite" if they want to milk money out of it if it sells enough. Like a "true Gen" edition.
