Have you tried Zom 100? It's about a guy that starts his bucket-list in a zombie outbreak. He keeps everything lighthearted, even amid all the chaos.I much prefer lighthearted comedy in anime, since I usually wait until 10pm to watch, & want nothing hindering my sleep.
I just watched E#1, and barely got through the 1st 2/3rds of this guy employment hell. Fortunately, the zombie apocalypse was the last 1/3, and quite funny.I just added it to my watchlist; thanks, alexvss!
Oh, I remember that! Took me a while, though, as the title did not resonate. A rather fun series.Assassination Classroom ... a goofy happyface alien shows up, destroys half the moon, announces intention to do same to the Earth in one years time...then, after the Govt. can't kill this character who has decided to to teach Junior Highschool, cos he can move at Mach 20... they issue special dart machine-guns to the students, and... that's maybe half the first Ep so it's a nice premise to work with from there.
Good summary. The visual echo of Mulan was a bit uncanny even when I've never seen that film (only clips).Just started watching Blue Eyed Samurai. Dear lord, that is one of the most impressive pieces of animation I have ever seen. The big swordfight in episode one is easily the best sword fight I have ever seen in any sort of media. I realize it is not hand drawn, but the program used yields expressive faces on drawn looking characters, a very high frame rate, no still sections to save animation cost and character movement that is way too dynamic to be motion capture but much more fluid and realistic than traditional action animation. And there is none of that forced 3D feel as the camera moves past building or objects common to many computer generated animation.
The show itself is so odd, having an almost Disney-esque feel to the design and story, yet much more visual detail; and then a thorough investment in all that is R rated - nudity, sex, gore, violence, prostitution, murder, smoking, drinking, etc. The effect can be confusing as you process something that feels like Mulan but is more like the most serious adult animes - yet retains a kinder depiction of the characters than very adult animes do.
Just the animation quality alone makes this watchable, but so far the basic revenge story is compelling enough in its details and presentation to have me daydreaming about it when I'm not near a TV. Highly, highly recommended.
Japanese has a huge array of ways to refer to oneself. This is one of the nuances of the language. The usage of pronouns depend on the sex, age, social status, mood, and other circumstances. Korean has that too, but with much less importance. To use your name as a personal pronoun is a way of sounding extremely cute. Many anime characters use it, mostly girls, babies and pets.I just finished SACRIFICIAL PRINCESS, I think that was the title of it. O.k., but I much prefer comedy.
It seems that SPY FAMILY's current season ends with a mid-December episode. Anya has the cutest facial expressions! She is one of three, count 'em, 3 anime characters who prefer their own names rather than personal pronouns. All are female:
Poor Juvia, unrequited love is so cruel.
