    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    I would pay all the money. Episode 14 Part of me still feels a little bit like it would have made more sense for the show to be set in the 1920s - much as I'm trying not to compare the show's setting to real world history too much, I find it hard not to think that Sanson is alluding to world...

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    Bit behind, but I'll catch up soon. Someone persuaded me to start on Amazon's new offering The Boys. Spoiler: It's quite good. Episode 12 Nice that we finally get some backstory for Grandis, Sanson and Hanson. I assumed the title was referring to Nemo and thought 'didn't they imply Grandis...

    Hmm, interesting. Of the Kitano crime films I've seen, I didn't like Hana-Bi as much as Sonatine or Boiling Point - it was just too bleak for my liking - but I know a lot of people do rate that one.

    Not trying to influence Grav's viewing choices, I'm just going to leave these here for completely unrelated reasons.

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    @mikezilla2 Ignore me, I was being silly. Ep 10 & 11 This is definitely my favourite part of the show; just watching the Nautilus crew off on their adventures. I always particularly liked Team Grandis, so it's nice to see them really doing their bit to save everyone else. Some speculate...

    Goldfish Warning ep1 I remember this being mentioned on a discord server a while back and, with a name like that, it certainly caught my attention. Didn't really know what to expect from it otherwise, but it seems pretty fun - it's a knockabout comedy (kids show I guess?) about a crumbling...

    Episode 9 I understand that music licensing is a complicated business, but the replacement insert songs on the home release are a bit much.

    Get in the Simulwatch - Neon Genesis Evangelion [End of Eva - 21/7]

    Finally got back to looking at the games again today. I see the two Girlfriend of Steel titles have actually been fan-translated in their entirity (I was sure at least one of the Eva games must have been), so I'll probably consider them at more length another time. The two that stood out to me...

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    Something I meant to bring up last night, but didn't want to take time to go into, is that the series had a lot of little omake bonus featurettes, packaged in along with the home release after the show had finished airing at the rate of one for every four episodes (presumably one per volume on...

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    Episode 8 This one definitely feels like the show's hitting its stride now - I am a simple man, I like swashbuckling adventure and crazy contraptions. This episode had plenty of both. I am a little disappointed Hanson never acquired a disguise though; surely the 'aren't you a little short for a...

    Only played 9 Persons, 9 Hours, 9 Doors, but I'd pay more than that for it on its own!

    Well, when I say original, I mean the live-action one from the 90s. The anime even plays its op theme towards the end. Didn't know they'd done a short for the Animator Expo though. Also screencapped that poster. Interestingly, I couldn't see it at all on my computer monitor when I went to...

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    Episode 7 Given that his gun fires darts, I was genuinely expecting some kind of 'aha, it was only a tranquliser!' explanation, but no, Gargoyle straight up killed a man... Much as I'm griping about the setting being anachronistic (19th century space laser now?), I do really like the look of...

    SSSS Gridman While it never blew me away, I think Gridman, particularly in its second half, gradually got more and more impressive, in its own quiet way. The ending lost me a little bit (I get the feeling it was leaning more on knowledge of the original Gridman series than what came before it)...

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    Episode 6 Poor King, Marie certainly asserted her dominance over him pretty quickly (didn't even t-pose). But yeah, the series is really starting to show its hand now - we get our first proper introduction to Gargoyle and some indication of what the Blue Water's relevance might be. It's also...

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    Episode 5 Yeah, I think this one is maybe the first real standout for the series. It shows the kids dealing directly with death in a sensitive, but fairly upfront way that feels much more sophisticated than anything we've seen so far. We also see a much more appealing side of Nadia herself...

    SSSS Gridman ep6-8 Feels like the story's picked up a bit now.

    Episode 4 At last, actual main character Captain Nemo! We finally get a proper look at the Nautilus and even some submarine combat, so I think this one is a big change of pace from anything we've seen so far. It's still quite silly when it needs to be though - the little exchange between...

    DARLING in the FRANXX: Episode 24

    Man, I've been thinking about how to break this one down for the last couple of days and it still feels like a lot. Franxx has its moments, but I feel like it's constantly at odds with itself in terms of what it wants to do, to the point where the bits that interested me often fell by the...

    Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water simulwatch

    Episode 3 Jean's accent seems to have settled in a bit now, so I switched to the dub this time around. It's not bad, I like Nadia's VA and Sanson's unexpected Englishness. Other than that, again, not much to say here - the ship is impressive to look at and, as WMD pointed it, it's nice that the...
