I finished watching Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 last night.
I'm not a dude who cries much, last time I did was 2 years ago when my dad had his accident.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 made me cry though. It's very good, quite short though. I recommend it heavily if you want something sad but gripping.

As you can guess it's about earthquakes. To be honest I don't know a whole lot about earthquakes, but they scare the shit out of me, and the rumbling scenes are terrifying when they happen.

Just finish an anime called 'Elfen lied' , I think that's what it's called. Pretty dark Anime. I loved it. Death by Vectors. Not pretty... I didn't like Lucy very much, but I fell in love with Na-Na. The cute innocent one.

That fake ass Duke Nukem dude definitely needed more screen time. So funny.

Finishing the final episodes of Magic Knight Rayearth.
Season 2 is poop. 30 episodes with maybe 12 episodes worth of animation. They recycle so much it's not even funny. It's the same slow pan of the crystal castle or flashbacks that seem really ridiculous when you're watching episodes back-to-back. I bored to tears but I'm going to endure it till the end.

Cerberus was a nice story. The last 4 episodes were really good. But at only 13 episodes it's hard to connect with any of the characters. They might dedicate an episode to one character's backstory, but in doing that they're basically closing the book for that character. Like, you see into their past which explains their actions in the present - but by then the story moves on to the finale and wraps things up.
Maybe it would have been better to end with a glimpse of the future; or by giving the characters a new purpose. I mean, it was a big adventure that consumed their lives and we have no idea how they would live their lives otherwise.

Just watched ep1 of Scrapped Princess. Looks pretty good. Kind of a prototype to Chaika: Coffin Princess. It's written by the same guy and I'm noticing more than a few similarities. Sibling bodyguards escorting a princess that appears harmless but somehow her existence is dangerous to the whole world.
He also wrote Strait Jacket, which I recommend watching. I see the connection. They've all got this magic meets science thing going on.

Ichirō Sakaki might be me new favorite Japanese writer. I'll have to look into his other stuff too.

I know close to fuck all about most anime shows, and to be honest I only like watching them if they have dubs, although I'll watch subbed ones if they're actually subbed properly, apparently some shows have awful translation in the subtitles, anyway... over the last week I've been watching a couple of episodes of Attack on Titan per day, late as fuck to the party, but I'm enjoying it.

i have mixed feelings on konosuba
i like the characters and how the mc is an asshole but not actually dense
the setting is great and i enjoyed it for the most part
but then the mad fanservice near the end kills the man

overall pretty good tho, just lacking a little in the execution department

i also watched gakkou gurashi
starts at 110% and ends with 5%, the later episodes dragged so hard and the typical japanese non-stop monologuing really didnt fit with the end
but the rest of the show was pretty solid, i called some of the plot twists before they happened which is a bit unfortunate but otherwise yeah not bad

Watching Strawberry Panic. Not the gay-est anime I've seen, but my god it's making me cover my face and scream at some moments. Tension is high, I find it quite terrifying to watch.

Not as terrifying as In Solitude, Where We Are Least Alone (which really freaked me out with the whole "what if things went differently" timeline) and certainly not as porny/incestuous either, but I'm shrieking in my head in horror and disbelief in much the same way.

It's like they get you all hooked to these characters, who are clearly in shitty situations - put on a big smile - and then their innocence is threatened and you're just like "NOOOOOOOOOO".

I just finished Strawberry Panic. It got a lot less rapey towards the end.

I'm watching girly/yuri anime right now to try and figure out the tropes to have in my game, I liked Sakura Trick but it's too stupid to be useful in my game. The cell-phone design that the characters have in my game is based on the one Yuu has in Sakura Trick, with the green case that has plastic cat ears on top. That's about the only part of Sakura Trick I'm going to be using as inspiration, unfortunately.

Rozen Maiden and Chobits are currently the biggest sources of inspiration for my project's theme/story right now.

I've been watching a bunch of old anime movies. Just watched Fire Tripper. It's written by Rumiko Takahashi, the creator of Inuyasha. I think Fire Tripper was a prototype to Inuyasha, or maybe Mangaka just make a name for themselves by sticking to the same themes. Fire Tripper is about a girl who gets transported to Feudal Japan and meets a boy. But there aren't any demons in this, only unexplained time travel. It's a short story, and you see the twist a mile away, so I'll just tell you what happens.

Digimon Universe: Application monsters

The humans are a generic anime style. Appmon are digital monsters born from mobile devices. It's got more in common with Megaman Battle Network than digimon imo.

Gatchmon - Search App
Musimon - Music App
Navimon - Map App
Cameramon - Camera
Dokamon - Gaming
Hackmon - Hacking I guess..

You get the idea, there's appmon for chat, calander, call, weather, fittness, mail.
But also just general device functions like Timemon, Savemon, Sleepmon, Onmon, Offmon. I'm assuming Jetmon is Airplane mode?

Some of them are what I would expect digimon to look like. But I dunno, the partner appmon are all bipedal same-face same-size...things. It's disappointing.

What's the point of continuing a franchise if you change everything but the name? Every show/game had a different identity and style, but at least they had the same digimon. Now they don't even have that. Just call it something else.

Just saw season 1 of the original Sailor Moon again after 20 years. All those feels. I could even recall the moment when I 1st saw every episode when I was a child.

The final battle in 'Antarctica' was so epic. I remember seeing it right before I went to school. Them feels. I felt a tear forming and I'm 31 now. Great times in anime. :heart:

Time for season 2.

LOL this is the thing that made me discard my Bandai Namco pitch and instead make an original mobile game.

The subject matter made what I was going to present a bad idea from a marketing point of view so I cancelled.

I just watched Digimon Tri part 3. There's not a lot of action and is pervasively melancholy. It didn't seem to drop any clues about what's to come. I went to youtube for fan theories hoping there was something I missed.

So there was an unused plot seed in Digimon Adventures. Or should I say "Spore". In an episode with a flashback explaining how Piedmon stole the Crests. Piedmon fights a Young Gennai and pushed a black orb into the back of his neck. It was never explained what it was. In season 2 there was a clip with Ken and Ryo (a tie-in with a game), in which Ken gets a dark spore after defeating millenniummon. There was something about Daemon showing up and being interested in Ken's spore but got pushed back to the Dark Ocean. The Dark Ocean was something else that wasn't really explained. Then there's Kari's connection to it and her Glowing Trance thing. All of it seeming unrelated to the Adventure02 finale with malomyotismon.

I actually really like Tri, there's been some complaints that it's very slow-paced, but Digimon Adventure 01 (and 02 less so) was incredibly fast paced to keep up with its air-time and to keep the motion going for its young target audience.

Tri is way more mature, so slows things down which is excellent.

I love that they all have 2005/2006 era technology, its really well planned and thought out and is certainly a work of passion for the original Digimon series.


If I were to try and be objectively critical, Tamers is still the best series in my eyes as it goes towards maturity, slows things down, removes the structure and focuses on what makes Digimon good. After Tamers it went down hill (things improved a tad with Savers JP - but Data Squad EN sucked ass). The Tamers EN dub is alright - it speeds things up again with all the added thought-dialogue to hit a younger target audience, still the best series.
Chiaki J. Konaka worked on Tamers (scripts, overall series story), he also worked the screenplay for Serial Experiments Lain - very fitting with Tamers I believe.

Considering a Pokemon movie marathon. Not sure how far I'll make it.
Starting with MewTwo Strikes Back. Omg, I haven't watched it since it came out on VHS. It was completely different in my mind. Wow, Mewtwo's lair has this whole H. R. Giger thing going on. I like. They didn't really follow through with Mewtwo's backstory though.

Pokémon The Movie 2000, I vaguely remember this one. Has really good animation with water and camera rotations. The story was kinda dumb and inconsequential. I got a feeling all the movies will be like this.

The 3rd movie is actually a pretty good children's movie. Very surreal, very abstract, really good I think.

Pokemon 3: Spell of the Unknown, yeah it was a good movie. Nothing I haven't seen before though. A Storybook made reality and dead/missing/neglectful parents. Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced had the same setup. But not as entertaining as a movie format.
I think there's an episode of Star Trek that does something similar.
Replace storybook with a board game and you've got Jumanji or Zathura. A great formula for kids.

The grimmest I've seen it is an episode of Justice League "Epilogue", where a girl with psychic powers was shaping reality but had a brain tumor. And there was just no escaping the fact that she was going to die one way or another. A pretty cleave subversion of the trope I think. Usually they're coping with a loss of someone else and not their own death.

So I watched Re:Zero because it was hyped. I wasn't too impressed. It took what could have been an interesting premise and turned it into generic anime nonsense, complete with maids, worthless protagonist, and albino half elf mage girl.

But it did get me watching Stein's Gate so that's good I guess.

In other Anime News.
Dragon Ball Super is beginning a new arc involving more of Universes. A trailer showed a female saiyan going super and basically transforms into a female Broly, it looks like. Broly has only existed in the movie and game continuity, but never the show.

Also Danmatchi a.k.a "Is it wrong to pick up girls in dungeons?" season 2 is confirmed for this April.

Yes! DanMatchi Season 2 is here~
Idk if the whole season is going to retrace the events of season 1 from Aiz's perspective, but that's what episode 1 was about.
I'm pretty psyched about it.

I'm watching this Chinese Anime about a professional mmo player. But it's one of those competitive social rpgs. Idk. It's bizarre because I've heard of professional mmo players, but this is painting it like it's their career and not just a hobby that pays.

So this Top-player is forced to handover his account and retire after playing for 10 years. And of course he's a big deal and everyone has heard of him. And it's unreal because this internet cafe is all shocked, and people are crying over the news. But he made a new account in secret I guess? And he's showing off his 200 Actions Per Minute skills and intimate knowledge of the game to get First Kills, Hidden Bosses, and getting his name on score boards.
It's dumb.

But I'm watching it anyways because I want to watch him raise to the top and ruin the sponsor or whatever that exploited him and his love for the game for money.

I finished watching an anime called drifters. it was super dope. I like how every character was based off of real people. Oh.. and I like the blood and gore and kick-ass bad-ass fighting. I don't watch anime much but that was phenomenal. I'll take any recommendations similar to that anime.
