Looks nice .
To me, it looked like it cut right to the chase - outstanding imagery, immediately telegraphed character relationships and development potential, and aroused interesting questions.
In a sense, it reminded me of the opening in Snow Crash - you're already savvy to this world, here's the advanced story.
And how often do you see a bad story involving the Tokugawa shogunate?
I have cautiously high hopes for this one.
Saizo Kirigakure and Sasuke Sarutobi .
I think I may check it out. Looks pretty good.
This thread is not helping me at all, so far I have chosen to add 2 manga series and watched all of death note thanks to this thread...
I got it as a homage.
For all the cool story lines and swishing action ,animes have a strong reference to the old folklore . Journey to the west and the ten sanadas are two such books who recur quite commonly . You will see Son-Goku or Sasuke Sarutobi references many a times here and there >_> <_<
Just a hunch, sorry to go off topic (again), I enjoyed this movie quite a bit. Most people I've recommended it to, not so much.
Sukiyaki Western Django: Theatrical Trailer | IMDb Video
I love over the top mindless action with practically no or some story .(I will probably love Casa de Mi Padre for the same reason )
I once saw an episode of Siskell & Ebert where they explained that a cartoon is also a form of movie, with many disconnects from reality, just as animated cartoons feature.
SWJ isn't animated but is definitely a cartoon, the sort Vincent Price would call, "deliciously violent." I don't think you'll be disappointed, and I think after you see it, you'll somehow see why I am recommending it here.
Loved it myself!
Regarding One Piece...
My mom's staff had a One Piece themed wedding.
Instead of having their bows in front of a priest or whatever, they signed Ruffy's hat.
The also had a presentation about how they grew up, how they met etc, and it all had One Piece slides here and there.
not to mention the treasure hunt and Ruffy and Nami wedding cake.
One Piece is fine, but the wedding was tacky...
OMG that is crazy.
FYI, this happened in Japan, and they are " non religious" so its not uncommon to get crazy weddings there.
I don't know, maybe if it was a full on cosplay wedding party then it's funny and fun. But anime themed is tough.
My mom don't even know what one piece was.
Anyhow, back to topic...
I thought it was great. Just finished it on Netflix. Reminded me of watching old westerns when I was a kid
So, I caught an episode of Code Geass and it seems intriguing, and the write-ups on it are all positive.
Curse you orachimaru Yeahha .Damn started reading One piece .So far so good .
Lol I'm on chapter 500 now the writer had to plan on some things years in advance I am always impressed when parts of the plot come together after 3 major arcs and 300 some chapters
Now I want to see luffy vs naruto
If you are reading the sbs corner after some chapters the people who write in are quite creepy sometimes
I have just reached the grand line !! .
The reason I avoided one piece is I watched one episode anime some six years.
Buggy vs Luffy didnt appeal me and I mistook it for one of those wacky kiddie stuff .(a clown and a rubber guy !! ?? !! )
Some manga are really not meant to be anime
I want to see Gaara vs Crocodile
Agreed I tried to watch some of the anime and couldn't get thru it. Its really bad when there is a male character with a female voice.
My bet would be on gaara. Crocodile really wasn't that strong. He wasn't even strong enough to go to the grand line instead he got fishmen and terrorized the east blue.
Crocodile(mr zero) not arlong .one of the seven govt. Pirates .
Considering croco thrashed luffy twice already ,I think he is pretty strong . He is smart too .
It will be an even match but gaara has a slight edge I think .
yeah I just realized my foot was firmly in my mouth there.
I'm not sure how far you are in but he makes a big fatal error he may beat up luffy some but he is too trusting and makes too many assumptions
OK, so I finished the first Lelouch series. It was OK, very good in spots, but it seemed to be hitting Death Note meets Big O.
So, I watched the first episode of Demonbane. Here, dark magic meets Big O. But I am bored, so I'll give it a chance.
More Shinigami, more shinobi, less Big O.
By the way, second episode of Brave 10 is available for viewing.
