    The General Conversation Area

    Volume numbers vary greatly between TVs. The TV in my bedroom is normally set between 6 and 8. Sometimes it needs to be 7, because the jumps between numbers are quite big. (Sorry, Aya! 😱😬 I promise this is the only time I have to allow an odd number!) The living room TV, on the other hand, is...

    Maybe you just need to press your power button to reset yourself. On second thoughts, NO! DON'T!!! :eek: (Chobits in-joke.)

    General anime thoughts/discussion thread.

    I like those anime titles that're one Japanese word and one English word β€” you know, like Kokoro CONNECT or Kiniro MOSAIC. In fact, I already have some prepared to pitch to Japanese animation studios. How about... Furikake TANGO (Furikake: a seasoning sprinkled on top of rice.) An anime about...

    To this day, I still don't even know what the Discord is. :p I've never looked at it. "And I, for winking at your Discords, too Have lost a brace of kinsmen." β€” Romeo and Juliet

    I was in CEX earlier today; they unexpectedly had a couple of copies of Space Adventure Cobra. What coincidental timing after only talking about the film here recently with @Professor Irony. Oh, and a copy of Panda Go Panda.

    And finally I find the opportunity to read all of @Scrambled Valkyrie's Casshern articles. They're very interesting. I've only seen Casshern Sins, so I really didn't know very much about the franchise as a whole. Reading these articles has given me a much better understanding of how Sins has...

    I thought the second season was really poor, personally β€” except the last episode, which was utter s**t. πŸ˜… Literally the worst anime ending I've ever seen.

    'Spirited Away' question

    Ah, sorry, dude. I should've phrased my post a bit better; I meant that the lack of communication onboard public transport is apparently how it is in Japan. I wondered whether Miyazaki might have been toying with how it must seem like an eerily silent environment to a child. Is that even true...

    'Spirited Away' question

    I absolutely promise you that Giovanni's Island is well worth your time, ayase. I saw it at Glasgow Film Theatre as part of Scotland Loves Anime in 2014, and I thought the applause from the audience during the end credits was never going to stop. Of all the films I've seen at that festival, it's...

    'Spirited Away' question

    There's a silent conductor featured in Giovanni's Island as well, actually. πŸ€” That film very directly references Kenji Miyazawa's story.

    'Spirited Away' question

    So... I just took a quick look at that scene. There are actually two cuts that do show his "face", but it's as blank and shadowy as those of the passengers. I can't imagine it has any particular significance, other than to perhaps emphasise his and the passengers' lack of communication? (Kind of...
