The general anime thread
« on: June 24, 2015, 10:37:18 AM »

This is a general thread for anime.
For when you want to discuss something but you don't feel it warrants a whole new thread.

I just watched Paprika for the first time.
It was good, but I don't think I understood all of it.
Everyone was pulled into the same dream and had a shared hallucination right?
But who exactly was Paprika? Why was the lady able to suck up giant man at the end?

I think Perfect Blue was better.
Paprika I don't feel like it really...explored anything?
I feel like they could have looked at the way that dreams could be manipulated for escapism.
Or something. I dunno.

Perfect Blue was memorable because it connected to the darker side of the idol business and the media and escapism and etc
Those were all things I could relate to. I can't relate to Paprika because I've never been trapped in a trippy simultaneous dream.

Or maybe I'm just a fucking idiot posting on a forum called anime princess island at three in the morning.

Does anyone else get insanely bored by Fate/Zero?
I can just barely make it past the first ten minutes of episode 1
They just talk, and talk, and then talk some more.
So much fucking talking.

I thought Zero was an anime original written by Urobuchi?
It's not that there's talking, it's that there's nothing happening.
I just feel like I'm having information shoved in my mouth.
Oh well, it's only the first episode.

Ehhh I feel like three episodes is fair.
LoGH didn't pull me in until about the third episode and it was well worth it.
Although the first episode is almost an hour, so this only gets 1.5 episodes.

The first episode of fate zero is bad. However things improve and, by the time you reach ep 3-4 (iirc), it's epic.

The op and ed are golden too.

Okay, I guess that explains it.
You got two episodes Fate Zero.
Two episodes to impress me or you'll be a Fate Zero out of ten.

I like Kiritsugu though. He seems like a pretty cool guy.
Made a better initial impression on me than that faggot Emiya.

Fate/Zero starts slow. It gets real good though.

Kiritsugu is worse of a faggot than Shirou all things considered by the end if you ask me. But he had a lot badass scenes so it's cool.

I didn't like UBW.
I get the appeal of it, and understand why other people love it.
But I didn't like it all that much. Dunno why.
Maybe the VN is better.

Maybe the Nasuverse/TYPE-MOON just isn't for you
