Anime is great! Well, 0.001% of it is. But that 0.001% is pretty bitchin'.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Im watching 'one punch man' atm. Its pretty good!
I found it cus I wanted to watch a tv show and it came up as the #1 tv show on imbd. Gonna have to assume that that is the result of an organised campaign by rabid fanboyss. 'Still good tho.
If you look at American TV shows, that bar isn't exactly on mt Everest
One Punch Man is the dumbest shit ever.
I thought this was going to be about next gen kids getting weirded out by their fathers who keep trying to make them watch ruroni kenshin, cowboy bebop and GITS.
GiTS I can take or leave, it's OK but a little lacking on the emo/romdram front. Battle Angel Alita however WILL be on the menu in the near future.
(Space Dandy's another good example, but there's at least one episode I can think of where you wouldn't get the reference and meta-joke at all if you DIDN'T have a pretty good knowledge of mainstream anime; it'd be like never ever watching western TV and trying to watch an episode of Family Guy).
..did I just compare Space Dandy to Family Guy? I think I did!
Would you like me to assist or are you honorable enough to bleed to death after cutting your stomach open?
You want me to decapitate you after you're dead? Talk about being thorough
"Please don't wear your Ruroni Kenshin shirt when you drop me off at school today Dad. Please. An no, I am not going to CosplayCon with you this year."
I'd like to know how well some of these aged. Certain elements of GITS won't make sense eventually (why do you have cables coming from the neck?), other parts may never be realized.
I'd bet kids would still enjoy RK. Evangelion too....Cowboy Bebop and Champloo feel pretty timeless....I saw GITS 2 a while ago and it was damn beautiful. Might just be me though.
Meh, I guess as long as the animation is decent, I guess we are past stuff looking actually "dated" (you can pour more money into something, but it own't meaningfully look better).
SolRo better safe than sorry..
but 'tis true, that episode (trying not to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it, not even sure if S2 has aired on AS yet) would leave most people confused if they hadn't ever watched any other anime.
gmol I got into Evangelion when it first came out so I must've been around 15, but it was frustrating when I spent like 25 bucks on a 2-episode VHS which was nothing but flashbacks and no plot development (and definitely no mechas). But I still liked it, sold them back as used for half the price so it really wasn't that much worse than renting really. But I think I would've liked it more if that wasn't the experience of being a 90s kid when it seemed like nobody else in the world liked it the way you did, and you really had to track it down on your own.
The amount of effort you had to put into to getting stuff in the old days was ridiculous. Adjust for inflation and today makes so much more sense for the consumer. Want to download an episode of something? A few bucks...or just wait until it is up at youtube for free.
There's not too much timeless anime being produced these days (or maybe there never was), I can't remember that many good shows from watching most not utter garbage shows every season for the last couple years, so the nicely animated classics will always be relevant.
