Oh man, watched Gunbuster 1 and 2. This really was the uber-anime. Nothing can be better than Gunbuster. It was THE anime made by fans for fans before CGI. So good. The absolute peak of Gainax and possibly all anime to me.

Yep. I knew it in the '90s, it was very very special and was then and still is my second of all time favorite anime second only to Macross, but I don't think anything has been made quite like it again, in terms of EVERYTHING being perfect. Just rewatching it and Video Girl Ai (an imperfect and super story compressed version of the manga OVA series that is so gorgeous.) made me realise I loved them then and they are STILL the best ever..

“The story explores a society completely brought down, within the span of one week, because of dependency on a single energy source and a state of prosperity tainted by compromise and deceit”

Not current events, but rather the plot summery from the Wiki for Giant Robo (1992) the best OVA which I’m going through right now. I’m also reading the Babel II manga (related).

Also manga related, I recently read all of Touch (Mitsuru Adachi) and wanted to watch the first movie again but all my old torrent sites are gone and I can only find it raw. I was hoping for subs since it’s a lot different from the manga/TV.

Touch is a really good (sports) manga, btw. I really miss that art style and pacing.

Also my kids been really into the first Unico movie so I’ve now seen that 4 times this week. I’m a huge fan already, which is why we have it.

found all three vols. of "GUNPARADE MARCH" at a thrift years ago, and finally got around to giving them a go.

in a word; SUCKS.

well, TBH, it wasn't ALL bad.

the Kenji Kawai OP theme was quite solid, and the little token loli girl in the team was cute and likable enough.
also, the dark-haired woman with glasses was rather likable, as well as highly sympathetic,
what with being a very good person that had bad things routinely happening to her,
even if most of them were played for comedy.

just about everything else, however, simply felt like a weakly-attempted mashup of Sakura Wars and FULL METAL PANIC,
and all of it seemingly highly dependent upon the audience's presumed knowledge of events
that i can only assume were fleshed out within the SONY PS2 video game that this series was based upon...

Watched the CGI Harlock film, not the best and really need to watch the old anime again.

Started streaming Lupin part 1, finished episode 2 last night, will keep it up.
Tubi has some great old anime for free, wish I had some money in these companies to get some dividends during this time.

I heard someone describe it as "good if you don't know anything about Harlock" and I think that was enough to make me steer clear.

It’s CG...so it’s good if you don’t know anything about animation.

There is a new CG Lupin III coming out. Dubbed day one with US theatrical screening, color me excited, it looks like a PS2 cut scene or an American toothpaste ad from 20 years ago, I can’t wait.

I miss old style animation. So many people tell me the new stuff looks better, but I completely disagree. It looks shinier, shinier does not equal better.

If you are referring to Lupin III: The First I hate everything about that. I especially hate that look, it offends me. I assume you are being sarcastic, but I still have to complain about it.

I'm already really invested in Discotek's releases of Lupin so it wouldn't make sense to get Lupin stuff on LD, but I bet it looks great. If I get anything it will probably be a Japanese LD of Cagliostro, despite already having the US BD.

I'm torn on Harlock. The US DVDs would be cheaper though, probably by a wide margin. I've really enjoyed Galaxy Express and Yamato though, so it's a matter of when I get and watch Harlock.

I haven't seen SSX but if its anything like Arcadia you will love it.
The first series is good but I feel it lacks a little of the romance we all love with GE999 and other stuff.

So you hate Lupin part 1? I watched part of the first episode of part 2 what didn't you like about the animation, I don't really think I notice that much of a difference.
I guess a little more polished? Have to watch more to give a real review on it.

Yes, I was being sarcastic. I have almost no interest in CG in general, when it’s a CG version of something I’ve loved for decades then I absolutely hate it.

Yeah the actual first Lupin series is fine, though I do like the 2nd one more.

saw that HARLOCK CG film a few years back, don't recall being particularly impressed.

just saw it again a few weeks back, and... IT SUCKED. and that's coming from someone who knows next-to nothing about the series.

indeed, if anything, this CG affair reminded me, in both visual style and pacing,
of one long Tetsuya Nomura-era FINAL FANTASY Cutscene. Just Saying... :thumbdown:

Japan's CG animation industry strikes me as being quite a bit behind compared to Hollywood. Granted, the latter probably has millions of more dollars to spend, but even the effects in the Ang Lee Hulk (which were heavily criticized) look better than a contemporary Japanese film.

I think Hulk and Starship Troopers were the first and last of how great CGI would and could be.
After that time period the films turned more into games to me and just don't have a great feel to them.

When it got to the point where every scene in the movie has some degree of CGI it got to the point where nothing in the movie is convincing. It’s all fake, we know it’s all fake. The explanation for every effect, every stunt, every makeup job, it’s “computers”. Someone clicked it into being. It never changes. The “real” stunts Cruise does these days are heavily aided by computers. Actors don’t even know what set they are standing in, it’s a green screen. They don’t even know what they themselves look like when playing roles. Nobody knows until the trailer hits...but even then it may be changed before the actual release date (Cats, Sonic).

The people doing these FX aren’t working on the jobs of a lifetime, they are just grinding for 60 hours a week. You can’t expect anything memorable to come from that.
