  1. Anime and Manga Thread.

    Haha yup this is pretty much everyone when you first watch Eva. The plot is like a big puzzle. All the pieces fit together flawlessly but it's a big complex puzzle and it doesn't help that the show intentionally misleads you on key points and never goes out of its way to explain itself. Some shows like to spoonfeed their audiences, some shows like to make their audiences learn to feed themselves, and Eva actively swats away any attempt to put the food in your mouth. Some people hate that but it just adds another layer of intrigue for me, especially because the payoff is so great once you start to figure out all the little secrets of the show. Also if you rewatch the show, watching the End of Evangelion film is a must. As far as I'm concerned if you haven't watched EoE than you haven't really finished NGE, it's the most important part of the franchise.IMO best-animated film of all time and perfectly ends the Eva franchise. It runs concurrent to the last two episodes so it gives context for what the hell is actually happening while being insane and complex in its own right. The Rebuild movies that aren't going to be on Netflix are good but nothing as great as the original. The first was exactly the same as the first 6 episodes of the show with nicer visuals, the second movies was actually really great, the third movie was a bunch of crazy setpieces and an amazing spectacle but lacked the substance that Eva is known for. It just had too many things completely out of left field and while that is normal for Eva, none of it really feels like it makes sense even after thinking about it a lot. If they do the 4th movie right it still could end up being pretty great overall, but Anno will really need to find a way to explain some of the actions the characters took in the last movie.
  2. Meh, I think he'll be fine. It was an understandable call considering his reputation but he didn't actually hit the head. It should have been called interference and I'd be surprised if the league did anything. But with the comish, you never really know.
  3. Good game. When Johansson scored near the end I really thought that Johansson was about to screw us over but it ended up ok. Feels good to be able to pay y'all back for that embarrassment earlier this season.
  4. Cardinals sign CBs Quinten Rollins and Dontae Johnson

    I see Dontae Johnson is continuing his tour of sucking for every team in the NFC West.
  5. Anime and Manga Thread.

    More crazy anime news this week: Blade Runner is getting an anime directed by Kenji Kamiyama (directed Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, the best cyberpunk anime IMO) and Watanabe (director of Cowboy Bebop, also directed a Blade Runner anime short last year )as creative producer. It'll be called Blade Runner: Black Lotus and the show is partnering with Adult Swim and Crunchyroll to bring it to TV I'm really hyped for this one. I love Cyberpunk and Blade Runner 2049 is one of my favorite Cyberpunk movies. This show has all the creative potential behind it to be a really great one. I'm really hyped. While we're at this crazy week in anime can we get a Black Lagoon season 3 announcement? Or a Konosuba season 3 announcement? Or a confirmation of the new GitS project being season 3 of Stand Alone Complex? Maybe I'm getting a little greedy...
  6. Me in September: I'm really excited to finally see this offense click and Jimmy and Shanny lead us to the playoffs. Me in November: let's talk about core vs corps to keep the pain at bay.
  7. Anime and Manga Thread.

    Welp Netflix managed to burn all my goodwill in a 24 hour period. Yesterday they announced my favorite show ever was streaming on Netflix, today they announced my second favorite anime ever, Cowboy Bebop, was getting a live-action show. I really really hope this is good. I want it to be good so bad. But judging by other anime to live-action series (I'm looking at you Ghost in the Shell and Death Note), we're about to get a ****-show that'll miss the entire point of the series. I will say that if there is one anime that could get a great live-action series, it would be Bebop. We've seen this kinda tone and setting work before in shows like Firefly so it's not guaranteed to suck. Watanabe is coming on as a consultant so hopefully, he'll be able to curtail any shenanigans the studio making this might put in. Either way, I'm going to watch this series, I'm just not very optimistic.
  8. Anime and Manga Thread.

    It's at least in pre-production now if not full on production. Studio Khara tweeted about how they were developing 3.0+1.0 parallel to Shin Godzilla and that an initial draft of the movie existed in January 2017. Khara also put out a call for animators to start working on June 30th of this year. They also put out this teaser trailer several months ago and stated the released date for the new movie is in 2020. So I dunno how far they really are into because they haven't announced anything yet but it's safe to say that Anno and Khara studios have turned their attention to this movie and it's being worked on.
  9. Anime and Manga Thread.

    Eva is complex and multifaceted. There's always a lot going on in the plot and between the characters so it's easy to miss the point of the show. The first time I watched EoE I was way too mindblown to understand what happened, nevermind understanding the subtilties of the plot. It's definitely a show you got to watch a few times to understand everything that is going on so I'm not too pressed that people don't get it the first time through.
  10. Hahaha, this post got a good laugh out of me. It's so on point it hurts. Fortunately, work-related activities are going to be keeping me away from football and the internet until March so I won't have to see how the rest of the season plays out. I hope we lose out tho!

    Wait really? Where'd you hear that? Ill I've seen is EoE and Death and Rebirth is coming. Nothing about the new movies.
  12. Anime and Manga Thread.

    End of Evangelion is (which is the most important one and the conclusion to the NGE series) and Death and Rebirth is (pretty much a long *** recap movie of the series, not worth watching) The rebuild movies (the new movies with a different storyline) aren't being added. I suspect they will eventually be added after the 4th and final movie comes to theaters in 2020.

    Tom Wilson's been dominating since he returned. I know a lot of people hate him (for good reason) but he really elevates the entire Caps team. Without him, we skate with no soul.

    EVANGELION IS COMING TO NETFLIX This is the best, most influential anime of all time and it's finally getting a streaming release. It's definitely not a show for everyone though. If you like casual shows you're going to hate Eva, but it is the most intelligent thought provoking show I've ever watched with great characters and a bat**** insane plot. This show heavily influenced my life so I'm really excited that I can finally share it with people.
  15. Ayyye everyone saying Gruden would pick him up was right.
