Aw, I missed this post. My bad.

P.S Sense-Offender,
I was brought back here chatting to willy and he was surprised you're still using that sig he made you must've been about 7 years ago, still with the credit even.

Had this sig since the redesign. It's too cool for me to want a new one. @JaY11 did like my last three sigs, I think. There was the Electric Wizard - Dopethrone one and the one with all the different sludge/stoner metal flyer artwork. I still have those on my external HD.


God Luck and Good Speed fellas!

haha

I really like the format, where it's skipping back and forwards through time, filling in blanks and showing events from different character's perspectives each episode.

I still haven't gotten myself to watch that one even though I own it. Been meaning to for a couple of years, now, I think. Baccano! was awesome.

Have you seen Baccano? Doesn't sound like you have, but Durarara is the follow up to Baccano (they even do that stupid thing with the numbered exclamation marks, Baccano having "!" and DRRR having "!!") and they have a similar style and format. It's a clusterfuck too until the last few episodes but it's one of my early favourites, I'd have recommended it before Durarara.

Out of curiosity, exactly when did the anime moe craze began? Especially since it have been an ongoing thing in the anime industry since the mid-2000s and the seeds were probably planted earlier.

People have became obsessed over these lately.

you what mate

I think we're well over the moe hump at this stage. It's still there but it's calmed down, with the biggest anime of the last couple years being action again like Attack on Titan and Kill la Kill. Compare that to 2009-2012 where the biggest shows were shit like k-on and oreimo. I think moe features have always been around, it was just never a mainstream attraction and especially not in the west.

To my knowledge (which admittedly drops off pre-2007 unless we're talking movies) it's k-on that kicked the moe concept into overdrive, in that it could hold up entire shows with literally no other draw nor any narrative development, compared to something like sailor moon where the characters have moe features but they actually fucking do things as well and serve a narrative purpose beyond selling overpriced figures. That's the peak we've been winding down from.

Of course it's been used long before that as a sort of supplement to boost success. The word itself has existed in japan since the 80s, and I'm claiming another point for Evangelion in popularising moe side characters from the late 90s to mid 2000s; characters who draw a lot of fans without them being the focal point of the show. In the very early development of Eva there was a push to have more male characters, in the end its two main girls are by far some of the most enduring and widely replicated anime characters.

Sorry I don't know what the fuck happened there, I tried making a snarky reply and ended up writing some sort of introduction to a speculative history essay. I'm bad at this anime club lark.

K-On is good.

In other news ZZ killed Gundam for me so I quickly gave up that grand dream of watching every Gundam ever for the hell of it. Back to the same old '80s-'90s mecha OVAs and Lupin III. Might jump into Hajime no Ippo since that seems to be universally loved, but idk I haven't quite got the thirst for 75 episodes of Japanese boxing cartoons at the moment.

Arslan senki season 2 just started, i recommend this series to anybody looking for an adventure/fantasy series. the novels that it is based on are written by the man who also wrote Legend of galactic heroes, so theres an emphasis on military strategy and coming up with schemes to defeat ones opponents during the battles, albeit less dry than LOGH. the visual style and animation isnt as interesting as the OVA series from the 90s but its adequately good. I actually liked the first season so much I started reading the original novels a bit, but im bad at getting through long book series so im not sure if i will ever actually finish those.

Toonami regularly launches new series in the Midnight slot, so I'm not surprised Iron-Blooded Orphens is getting bumped down the line-up.

It's aging really well.

The manga is apparently following an almost identical disastrous ending as the anime.

Since the 1970's, Japan has made a lot of things... well, cute. I don't know if the people of Japan at the time were depressed or just like screwing with everyone, but it started to take off towards the 80's and 90's. There has been some brushback against this in Japan (to say nothing of the hornet's nest in the states) among old-school otaku and others, but they were largely ignored. I don't think kawaiisa, or it's anime off-shoot moe, has completely gone away in Japan as much as it has been relegated to the otaku community and public faces of Japanese companies.

People have became obsessed over these lately.

There has been a backlash towards moe in the west, though even with that, there is a lot of anime fans in the west that like K-On!, Love Live and so on, (the lesbian overtones helps) so make of that what you will. Honestly, I don't think it's the concept itself as much as it is the potential squick factor of lolicon and incest that permeates around certain moe anime.

Shifting gears here, I started on Aldnoah Zero, and so far, I keep thinking that I'm watching Code Geass again, with Attack on Titan and MS team for flavor. That's not necessarily a bad thing per se, but it does give AZ an identity crisis, so I'll see how it goes in later episodes.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I think that was probably the most the club has seen overall. Some others here and there though.

I gave him shit too as well when he first joined. Him and Gendo became good friends but Mendou doesn't hear much from him, if any, from him at all these days. I still talk to Mendou here and there. I doubt he'll ever come back. Hell, I don't know why I do from time to time.

I'd say a lot of us older members gave newer ones shit back then but now that we're all older and it's out of our system... meh.

In other news, Attack on Titan season 2 is coming out next year and lets not forget to mention that new Berserk coming out soon. Pretty god damn pumped for that one and the Musou game it's getting too.

You still talk to Mendou? He and I used to chat on AIM all the time. He was one of the last people left still signing in before my account basically became just a way to find my phone.

I doubt he'll ever come back. Hell, I don't know why I do from time to time.

Internet in my pocket for me. I don't see myself being bothered to come around nearly as often if I had to sit at a computer rather than just be standing around wherever I am.

In other news, Attack on Titan season 2 is coming out next year and lets not forget to mention that new Berserk coming out soon.

Man, I hope Berserk gets finished some time ever. I'll start reading it again if that happens. I used to collect volumes in high school and burn through them because I had the DVD box set of the anime and wanted to know how it ended. hah!

Pretty god damn pumped for that one and the Musou game it's getting too.

That new Berserk game? Fuck yes. I never did get to play the old Dreamcast one.
