    The Evangelion thread

    Forgive me if this post gets lengthy. ๐Ÿ˜… Cool, cool. (I did feel like your name sounded Portuguese, so... ๐Ÿ™‚) Major props to you for being able to discuss something like Eva at such a high level in (I'm presuming) a second language. Those are some serious English skills! You know, it really is...

    Funimation "Pulls" Streaming for Interspecies Reviewers

    Do you reckon MVM could maybe, like, you know, do a Kaze and kind of just... "forget" about the cut when it comes to an HD upgrade? ๐Ÿ˜ * whistles innocently * ๐Ÿ˜—~โ™ช

    Give me my uncut Paranoia Agent, then we'll talk fairness. ๐Ÿ˜› (Not an unreasonable deal!)

    Hi everyone

    A warm welcome to you, @FreakyCircle. ๐Ÿ˜€ You picked a good forum to join.

    Funimation "Pulls" Streaming for Interspecies Reviewers

    The point would be for them to fill a role of advisory body and nothing more. I'm quite frankly shocked that anyone would be prepared to just shrug apathetically as artistic expression is trampled by a policing method which is fallible at best and outright dubious at worst. We're not exactly...

    Funimation "Pulls" Streaming for Interspecies Reviewers

    I haven't read the content of these meetings, so I couldn't comment on that, but clearly no-one who was there spoke up against the member demanding the spurious cuts to Paranoia Agent or Code Geass R2 in each example because otherwise they would never have been butchered in the first place. Nor...

    Funimation "Pulls" Streaming for Interspecies Reviewers

    You present some compelling evidence there, ayase, that the BBFC have been guilty of going beyond their remit. In fact, it's tempting to suggest that they've extended their reach so far as to demand cuts to a submission simply because it contains material that an individual BBFC member...

    In a rush to get through it? ๐Ÿ˜… Are any thoughts on it forthcoming, Prof? ๐Ÿ™‚

    General anime thoughts/discussion thread.

    Mmmm, contemplative... Linking back to Mamoru Oshii, that's exactly the word that comes to mind when thinking about his films. By that token, I've written in this very thread before about how much I rate Innocence. In fact, I hold it in the kind of regard that most people probably reserve for...

    The Evangelion thread

    Being a bit self-indulgent here and quoting this in the Eva thread. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Wow, that's bold. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Again, if you don't mind me asking, what country was that in? These kind of things interest me. You know, I wouldn't have considered myself a mecha kind of guy either at one point. In fact, when I saw a...

    What did you RECEIVE today? PHOTOS EDITION!

    Wow, that's amazing, dude! Thanks loads for that. I'd always wondered what the contents were. ๐Ÿ˜€ You've even made the text readable, so I'll have a read of it. ๐Ÿ˜‹

    Count to a Million

    With around 17,645 lines of text to translate, I guess the translator got a bit sloppy.

    What's the CE booklet for 2.22 like if you don't mind me asking? I kinda regret not getting that release back in the day.

    Wow, yeah. I couldn't agree more with that. ๐Ÿ‘ That was a really excellent post, dude; very in-depth. I read it over a few times to absorb it properly. It was interesting to hear that you actually got Eva on TV! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Out of curiosity, what was your take on the TV ending versus EoE? ๐Ÿ™‚ And yeah...

    General anime thoughts/discussion thread.

    I pulled these from the Viewing Journal thread... I was shocked myself, to be honest; I'd expected to automatically like an anime adaptation of Azumanga Daioh. But... I dunno. I guess what with the source material being such a winner, I was expecting something brimming with vitality, but I just...

    Your viewing journal

    By quite some coincidence, I'm actually (re)reading the manga at the moment, in that very omnibus format. It's outstanding. It's charming, it's funny, the characters are great... I love it. The anime, by contrast, I saw the first episode of a few years ago, and I just didn't get on with it at...

    Simulwatch - Gunsmith Cats/Riding Bean/Bubblegum Crisis/Crash/AD Police/Parasite Dolls [all complete]

    Catching up on some bits and pieces again. ๐Ÿ™‚ More language-related observations from me here. In the Japanese dialogue, our man in the Prof's pictures is saying "Papetto Masutaa? Fuzaketa namae da na." That verb, fuzakeru in its present tense, is typically used to accuse someone of messing...

    Re: Gridman discussion... I'm a big fan, and the series was an easy release-day buy for me. I was taken with it from the first episode. I loved that first action sequence; it brilliantly conveyed Gridman's size and weight for me, and Trigger just keep coming up with ways to display the power...
