Eps 5-7 of The Vampire Dies in No Time
Yeah, you can tell the choreography is really slow to make account for that and his age. Having recently watched Shang-Chi Simu Liu would have been a good choice. Had good banter and excellent fighting skills. He's also nearly 20 years younger and a little taller.John Cho's apparent lack of fight experience also bites rather hard - if they had cast a martial artist as Spike, it would have helped a lot.
It was June, not as bad as I thought.and I kind of dread to think how long ago it was I started this show (and my last update to this thread)
Been a while I guess but I'll update.
Watched Terror in Resonance which I got as ultimate edition from an AL Christmas sale. For a UE it was a good blind buy at the price since I like the director. Anyway yeah this was a good show. And it get's bonus points as I appreciate when a show has the balls to make a sad/bittersweet ending.
Rewatched One Punch Man Season 2 which I got the CE on Blu-Ray. My initial impressions as it turns out remain unchanged, sure it's not as good as Season 1 but it's still a damn fun time.
Watched Full Metal Panic S1 it was a fun war comedy.
Trying to watch Eureka Seven ... And this is pretty much the entire reason I've not updated in this thread for a long time and I kind of dread to think how long ago it was I started this show (and my last update to this thread). I am genuinely enjoying the show but there are issues which are physically stopping me from watching it in a normal manner. And it has kind of killed my motivation until recently to watch any of my other shows since I started it.
I'm watching this with my brother who was interested in checking it out but he only wants to watch like 2 episodes at a time, then if I am lucky we will watch 2 more a few weeks later when he is having a "good day." He suffers from depression which I am always understanding off and really do my best to be patient with, but still I can't help getting frustrated that if I want to break off and binge watch by myself he falls into a slump and I get trapped into waiting for him. He also wants to watch some of my Gundam releases with me too this so those have gone unwatched (particularly Turn A and Iron Blooded Orphans), and those are of course 50 eps each as well. I dunno what to do. Anyway Eureka Seven is good but I kind of forget what happened last episode by time we sit down to watch so it isn't really coherent.
This is an issue that is contuinuously ongoing, I love spending time with my brother and sharing my blu-rays but we fall into this trap every time. One example is with Gundam Zeta as well resulting in that show being a wierd jumbled mess off events in my mind, maybe that's why I vastly prefered ZZ. Ultimatey I just can't say no without him regressing, and I'm stupid enough to keep making the same mistake of letting him pick the next show just to hang out with me, since well he's my little brother and I love him, and he spends all day alone in his bedroom anyway. So I got to roll with the punches a bit.
Index 3 was the one which almost broke me, because ontop of a snails pace of progress it was a terrible show at the same time. Halfway through I suggested we should just outright drop it and find another show, playing it tactfully by casually saying it was a bad show not worth our time and he just breaks down and screams that I was failing to understand his condition. Oh boy after that one I also heard him **** talking about me behind my back while he was streaming on Twitch, but whatever I can play dumb so he doesn't know that I know, and with this post I think we are even there anyway.
I know he also makes a concious effort to avoid any forums I regularly visit so this is safe from prying eyes lol
It was June, not as bad as I thought.
Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut ep.1 - What's the point of having a 'vampire' in this if she doesn't have any vampiric traits? It's clearly just being used as a thinly-veiled allegory for racism, so I don't see why they bothered painting it as a pseudo-fantasy element at all. On hold.
That's kind of you to say, I wasn't sure what reactions I would garner since my whole post was just to vent some built up frustrations so was pretty negative.Just wanna say as a person with depression my whole adult life good on you for being there for your brother. Hopefully you can find a way to address some of the things here that are issues with his behaviour in time but I'm really glad there are people like you in the world. I really like Terror in Resonance (I have the UE as well), Full Metal Panic S1 and Eureka Seven (I have the UE of that too), though I personally prefer Mob Psycho 100 to One Punch Man, so great choices there IMO
