We're bringing it back!

If you don't know what this is, the Anime Club was founded in 2015 as a way for us to all watch an anime together as if it was airing once a week in order to produce OC and experience what watching it with /a/ would have been like.

Now, the Anime Club has become something to resurrect every once in a while as a rare event, and each time it has been organized by someone else and in different ways. I aim to retain this tradition with ACIII, so this time around, I'm organizing it like this:

Yes, there will be a cytube stream. I know this goes against the original idea of us all watching it separately so we can produce OC, but worry not. I will be posting a DDL for each episode every week. Those who cannot make the time are encouraged to utilize this DDL to watch it on their own. Those who do make it are also encouraged to do the same and produce OC with it.

>When does it air?

Wednesday at 5PM PST. That is all. No split days for different shows, no twice a week. It's Wednesday at 5PM PST. This will hopefully remove all confusion. The only problem with this time is that it conflicts with the rare Waifu Wednesday r/a/dio stream, but it's the only time I'm able to host it every week, so I'm locking it in. This won't always be the case forever, however, which takes me to my next revision:

After my set of streams is over, if things go smoothly, I will appoint a successor the ability to stream the Anime Club cytube and let them organize Anime Club IV however they wish, and for whenever they wish. They are able to just not use the cytube at all if they don't want to.

Let me know if I get something in this part wrong, I know I'm missing some things.

Just finished it, wanted to hear what you all thought about it. Frankly I'm leaning on the side of disliking it for a number of reasons, although at the same time I think it's really beautiful and I want to like it. Maybe talking it out with some of you will change my mind.

My first complaint is that it feels too long. There's a lot of atmosphere and side stories that don't really go anywhere. Since there are 22 episodes, instead of say 12, I guess the director felt he had more time to flesh out his ideas, but at the same time, I don't think this extra time was utilized well. It's clear early on where the show is going, but it also feels like there's a lot of "fluff" that extends it for no real reason.

The message of the show feels somewhat ham-fisted. It's really thrown out in the open early on and there's little subtlety. I think developing some of the big characters more would've made the message more complicated, and thus justified the length to some extent. Without getting into spoilers too much, the plot mainly follows one faction, while the other two are sort of left mysterious. Even though they complicate the message and would provide a good foil to the actions/beliefs of the main faction, they're not really expanded upon.

As a side note to this, I feel the central idea was done better at an earlier point in time. I didn't feel like this show added anything new to the transhumanism debate.

The characters themselves felt somewhat flat. Many of their motivations or ideas stem from events that happened before the show was set. Going back to what I said earlier about the show being too long, they never utilize this extra time to expand upon the past and help us understand the character's intention better. Instead we sort of have to piece it together ourselves. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's not a show which needs characters with ambiguous motivations. I think the director wanted to make us consider a possible future of humanity. I think giving the characters clear and explicit motivations or goals would've been better in the end, because it gives the viewer something concrete to focus on. Especially in a show as abstract as Texhnolyze it helps you connect the overall story to the underlying messages.

The reason Yoshii wanted to plunge the city into chaos is because he was from the surface, and he both saw and hated how the surface ended up being. As far as I remember, the shit he stirred was to either prevent the underworld from becoming like the surface, or to help the surface. Been too many years, can't remember clearly.

>the shit he stirred was to either prevent the underworld from becoming like the surface, or to help the surface

Well the way I remember it the surface was "perfect", which means there was no strife or conflict, which made people apathetic and listless, and quite literally "fade away", thus the people fading in and out of existence. He wanted to stir up a gang war in the underworld to prevent it from sharing that fate.


 No.914210

>>914200

As far as I remember, the shit he stirred was to either prevent the underworld from becoming like the surface, or to help the surface

but those are two completely different objectives from my understanding of the show. I really wish the surface world had some more explanation, although in some ways I'm fine with it being left as it is.

It's more like I'm unhappy with how Yoshii's character arc was played out. He went down for an unclear reason, knowing that Sakimura (the quiet, long haired guy) was sent down instead of him. Yoshii really wanted to go. I suspect it's because Yoshii envied how they live down there, with purpose and the desire to live. What is left unexplained is why he wanted to go, and if you remember, Yoshii himself had cybernetic limbs which is another unexplained plot point that feels like it was meant to be more important than it really ended up being. We don't really know why he became like that or more about why Texhnolyzed limbs only work below ground where they are near the monolith/tower/whatever. This is especially strong when we see something similar in one of the last episodes. The mayor or governor of the town above ground is shown with some sort of texhnolyzed limbs, but they seem very rudimentary and simple compared to the advancements made underground. Furthermore, the governor guy explains to the alcoholic doc that they don't even really need Raffia, the plant stuff that is required to mesh humans with these cybernetic limbs and only buy shipments out of tradition. Since nobody uses the Texhnolyzation technology up there, there's no need to use Raffia.

Do Yoshii's motivations even matter, though? I guess not. He brought about a period of uncertainty that ultimately drove many of those in competing factions to the Class, who had other plans. Was Yoshii aware of this? Was he attempting to prevent people from joining the Class or to accelerate that transition for them? In many ways, the end goal of Kano was essentially to drive the underground society closer to the surface, by means of having them accept a new brancPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I've been really looking forward to this and I wasn't disappointed. Kind of resolved Hidaka's arc and Ono's home problems.

Also they showed Donpachi and acknowledged NGE since it's 1995. And when the characters talk to video game sprites in their heads it's still really amusing, for me at least.

Updates from Tsukushi on the status of the next chapter have been posted on his Twitter. Here's the shitty Google translation:

>Next chapter that I want you guys to read all at once will be twice longer than an usual one and posted in March. I'm sure it’s gonna be a good one but it’s kinda boring to write because almost all of the characters in the chapter is adult.

Speculation? I hope the double-length means that we will see the end of the flashback. If everyone is an adult like the tweet says though it leaves me confused though, because many of the characters in the flashback aren't quite adults.

After action report from the theater. Was okay.

...that potentially changes everything. The general consensus was that Ozen's horrified reaction to Lyza and Torka's marriage was because she was in love with Lyza. I, at least, certainly never considered she might have been in love with Torka, instead. Holy shit!

Just finished it here. Overall while it's nice to have a bit more at the start, I enjoyed the series more if for no other reason than we got to see more of the Abyss and the creatures inhabiting it.

I rewatched the series fairly recently, and didn't notice much trimming until they were actually in the Abyss, most of it happening in the Second Layer.

A good amount of the Second Layer's encounters were trimmed out in favor of focusing on the Seeker Camp. It was the right call, but it makes Ozen seem like the only challenge of the layer.

They didn't shy away from any of the "problematic" content like the naked hanging, Reg's chinchin, and the gore, so they get bonus points for that.

I look forward to the second part, but I'd still recommend that people watch the series over the movie when possible. The Abyss is such a great setting that it's a shame to miss seeing any of it.

I hope this makes sense, but I'd like to have this thread to help present and discuss the history of the Industry and Otaku to help anons understand where everything comes from. This includes studios, tropes, cons, people, merch, otaku, and whatever else comes to mind.

To get us started, here's a list of things the average anon may not know about:

<Notenki Memoirs

This is required reading for every /a/non. The full text with annotations can be found here:

https://www.gwern.net/docs/eva/2002-takeda-notenkimemoirs

It goes over, among many more things, the origin of otaku, SF clubs, cons, doujin, merch such as garage kits, Daicon, and the forming of GAINAX, this last being what I consider the greatest story about anime and Otaku. This autobiographical book is short, but gives a very good description of where we come from and is a good basis for understanding everything about the industry today.

Good supplemental material to this is Otaku no Video and Aoi Honoo.

<Otaku no Video

A psuedo-documentary anime on Otaku and the founding of Gainax, by Gainax, including their old vision of the future. I take it most of us have seen it already, but it's always a good one to revisit.

<Aoi Honoo

This goes hand-in-hand with Otaku no Video and Notenki Memoirs. An autobiographical manga by an otaku who went to school with Anno, Akai, and Yamada, the main founders of Gainax. It was adapted into a live action drama that is very entertaining and takes scenes straight from Notenki Memoirs.

<Powered Suit

Colloquially known as "Mech suit" today, unfortunately. This comes from the suit of the Mobile Infantry in Starship Troopers, because it didn't have a physical description in the novel. For the Japanese release of the book, the illustration on the cover became known as the Powered Suit, and, aside from directly showing up inPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yes, I think he's referring to D&R and EoE.

I'm reading a different interview with Yamaga and Akai from 2002 right now, and what Akai said about about this last "I think I'll take a break" sentiment is kind of funny.

http://web.archive.org/web/20031205021525/http://anime-tourist.com/article.php?sid=298

>Since Evangelion was so successful. Gainax stopped making animation because.. well .. everybody was getting paid. When they noticed this, they realized that Gainax could no longer make animation because they had stopped making animation all together. In order to change the situation, Mr. Yamaga has come up with the projects for the 4 series. This is so Gainax can get into shape making animation again.

>Gainax as a group became very fat because of Evangelion and was really not able to move because of it, there was too dead weight. These projects are designed so that they can loose some of the dead weight. So they are in better shape to do some work.

These four titles are Mahoromatic, which is their last cel anime, Abenoboshi, Puchi Pri*Yucie, headed by Akai based on his Princess Maker games, and Boukyaku no Senritsu, which only had the title and was thought to be 14 episodes at this point. Somehow Kono Minikuku mo Utsukushii Sekai managed to fit in there, too.

I guess what they mean is no full-length TV anime, as they had just come off of FLCL at that point. In any case, I consider this period to be the start of the Bronze Age of Gainax, when Yamaga really started to try to make Gainax into a real animation studio. I think this shift is what eventually led Anno into leaving to make Khara.

On further review of this interview:

>AL: You are also a lover of “live” series, in the genre of Ultraman, Godzilla, and etc… Have you drawn some inspiration from these programs?

<HA: Clearly this genre made up some part of my film and television culture. I have not taken ideas from this genre, but I think that in my works you can find a number of elements reminiscent of that genre.

>AL: Do you continue to watch these shows today?

<HA: When my work gives me the time, I try to watch television, or to go to the movies. It is clear that my passion for this genre remains virtually intact. Lately I have seen Gamera 2, and it was very enjoyable, this film was truly very good.

It's nice to know that Anno is keeping up with his core interest. Gamera 2 is Gamera 2: Attack of Legion (from the remake trilogy).

>Finally, there was a stigma associated with being an adult; adults were, at some level, "denied." Not only is a child's growth to adulthood seen as acquiring responsibilities, but it is also seen as the person becoming more polluted or dirty.

>Hence (Mr. Okada argues), Hollywood coming-of-age movies show characters growing up and becoming mature, but Japanese culture prefers to show characters going back to the innocence of being a child.

Looking back, I think this single detail is what crystallized my adoration for the medium in my early twenties. I had been exposed to anime at a much younger age, of course, and was completely taken in by it for some years but as I headed towards adulthood, this love lagged behind. It was only later when I became aware of how adulthood in our society rots away the soul that I realized that continuing to nourish the roots of purity is the only way to prevent becoming one of the "living dead," the NPCs, the normalfaggots. I truly "got it" and the stunning realization of what the Nips were doing changed me fully and permanently.

Nice read, that.

Speaking of Heisei Gamera, Gainaxer Maeda Mahiro did the special effects for it, same guy who worked on Daicon IV - Nadia with them all before he left to form Gonzo with some of the others.

Just finished this, was wondering if anyone else has seen it and what you guys thought. I was drawn in by the premise, which seemed really dark and depressing, and instead I got a cheap rip-off of Usagi Drop. Anyone else have any thoughts?

This show seems to pursue the "raising a family" feeling without really knowing how to do it. The writer has probably never been around kids or knows anything about child raising. They just wanted a cute boy meets girl not quite incest story with little sister feeling. UsagiDrop is the opposite as it shows a more realistic style of story likely because the author knows a lot more about it. Don't worry about legal stuff in Papakiki, its all swept away because its not cute.

i just can't help but think it could have been so much more than it was. Ultimately I didn't see the point in killing off the parents, since that's so fucking depressing. Imagine if the parents just get stranded at a remote destination and stayed in touch to say they couldn't get back home for 6 months. The plot would essentially be the same, young guy is suddenly forced into a fatherly role. I actually think it would've worked better, because it would have forced the MC to be closer with his sister and her family, and it would have instilled a new feeling of care and compassion within the MC. It's kind of established that he is trying to be more independent of his sister early on, while she wants him in her life along with her husband and kids.

>it could have been so much better

I've gotten very used to feeling this in regards to anime with very specific premises. All of the criticisms you make are very on point, and I also feel that it would have been great had it been better. Ultimately though I suppose that's the cost of getting niche content; it doesn't have much budget or competition to beat.

Only somewhat related, but I had a very long and autistic discussion with an /a/non about Yosuga no Sora about a year ago, and for all of our discussing of the show's pros and cons and so forth, the only conclusion (actually related to the show) that seemed to be shared between both of us is that it was a crying shame there wasn't more of it, and that what we did have wasn't better done than it actually was. That's the state of liking content like YnS or this show, there's hardly any of it so it's like you're being drip fed water. You catch an oreimo here, a YnS there, and find papa no iukoto and your thirst is momentarily slaked but not gone. But there is no more, so you only end up wandering an endless desert in pursuit of the feels that shows like these give you.

After a while, one wonders what the point is.

Maybe I ought to give this show a rewatch and see if it's any different in my eyes now.

I always considered Yuri from Angel Beats as the Costco Haruhi, but I do see the resembalance.

I haven't re-watched this in ages, but I do still have it available. There's more story here than meets the eye to anyone who hasn't seen it, but wants to make it seem like they have, just to criticize. Same thing happened to Kodomo no Jika and, Shuffle!, more or less.

I'll get this into my re-watch queue.

Which Kurumi had the better dress? 5 years ago or "present day"?

>>914154

Gothic lolita fashion the way you are thinking of it is a modernized image on top of what I think is a more Victorian era nobility fashion with tons of frills, ribbons, and lace. Gothic in the historical sense refers to the late middle ages/early Renaissance era. These designs are generally simpler to sew. Silk didn't arrive in Europe until the middle ages so it was not cheap enough for mass usage and fancy sewing techniques for the stuff you see in gothic lolita fashion. Suiseiseki's clothing is a better fit for late middle ages compared to fetish fuel Kurumi and Rory. Both of them are sluts by both Reinassiance and Victorian standards anyways, along with most gothic lolita designs. It doesn't particularly matter though. Its cute regardless of era.

Was announced back in January, but now we get a sneak peek to what the animation quality might look like when it airs in July. Hopefully Doga Kobo do a good job animating Hibiki's hijinks.

Might help in making people want to go to the gym or try to be overall healthier. I really doubt someone to be stupid enough to follow anime's examples exactly as they say, but people can be surprising. I just hope we don't get a Yuri Spic situation.
