    The News Thread (for news that does not need a thread)

    New PV for Mappa's forthcoming adaptation of much admired '90s crime manga, Banana Fish: I'm a little concerned about their decision to update the setting to the present day, as opposed to making it a full-on period piece, but I'm keen for this nonethelss.

    The General Conversation Area

    A music video I created for a musician pal of mine finally went up today. Maybe now when I tell people I animated beards for a living, they won't look at me funny.

    Pop Team Epic ep7 I really liked the Hellshake Yano skit. Was actually surprised to find that he was a musician though, just going on the name from the last time he was mentioned, I thought maybe he was a wrestler. Kakegurui ep8 Didn't have time to watch the next episode, but I'm dying to...

    For Criticism, ???? and Profit.

    The 'cutiesaturday' hashtag is mildly effective, I think?

    A reminder that Kaori from City Hunter was a female Ghostbuster before it was cool.

    Garo: Vanishing Line ep4-5 The more I see of this show, the more I like it, but I dunno, it always feels like there's something else I prioritise more. Maybe I'd prefer it if Gina was the mc. Punchline ep4-5 Something the local group has picked up. I gave it a wide berth at time of airing...

    Retro Anime Podcast - Next Episode

    Listened to ep10 the other day (I'm terrible at keeping up with podcasts as they come out). Given the name, I actually kind of thought Fandora might have been connected to the similarly vintage Dream Hunter Rem series, which I remember being pretty good, but alas not. Having looked at the art...

    Rate the last anime you watched out of 10

    Having gone through the original one first, I don't know that I'd say I prefer it over Brotherhood, more that I just felt like I'd had enough of the franchise by that point. What I've seen of Brotherhood seemed fine, but I didn't have any great desire to watch it.

    Pop Team Epic ep6 I liked the shogi skit, although I feel there was a missed opportunity for a March Lion gag there.

    "B: The Beginning" - it's a fantasy/mystery thing due out on Netflix next month. Apparently I am a legendary investigator. I am okay with this.

    Guys, I am an anime. I don't know how to feel about this.

    So whats your desktop?

    Hah, I get that a lot. It's a Cintiq graphics tablet rather than a conventional monitor - it's what I use for drawing.

    Still haven't found anything I like enough to replace '95 Motoko.

    Cake Gurui ep5-6 I think Midari is my spirit animal. I look forward to her sexy Russian roulette time next episode.

    Kondo also has a co-director credit on an impressive, but curiously rejected pilot film for the US-helmed Little Nemo movie - it can be found online fairly easily. His tragic passing at such a young age is a huge loss to the industry though. Aside from showing enormous promise as a director...
