Re: Garo -Versus Road- Series discussion and poll

I'm a little torn on why they chose this for the story. Were they out of ideas for the (still debatably) two main timelines? Were there budget issues? Or were they just up against a really tight deadline and threw it together in the last moment to fill an airing timeslot? Despite how that sounds, I ...

Re: Garo -Versus Road- 12 released

I would have given this episode a 5, but the CGI was atrocious. Not only did it make Veil and Garo look cartoony (pity, since the actual Veil costume looked amazing), but this is 2020. The CG battles in this show shouldn't look pathetic when lined up to the original series nearly 15 years older. I a...

Re: KR Zero-One 35.5 released

I feel like Izu has a lot of personality, but she chooses to hide it. A lot of her reactions seem to suggest there's more going on in her mind than we're allowed to see. As she was the former President's personal assistant, I wouldn't be surprised if this whole thing with As is pointing to her being...

Re: Garo -Versus Road- 11 released

I get that they're pushing this as an all-new timeline, but I'm hoping it will turn out to be a bridge between the original timeline and the Ryuga-verse. So many aspects of the show feel like they could tie into the original timeline, and the "ultimate power" frequently alluded to could easily have ...

Re: KR Zero-One President Special PART.02 released

As boring as clip episodes can be, I do hope you guys translate the Vulcan ep. Japan's only just getting back to normal, and I can pretty much guarantee they're not going to extend Zero-One's airtime to make up for the weeks in lockdown. Clip eps are better than nothing, and with any luck, they'll b...

Re: KR Zero-One 30 released

In terms of the time jump, I'd say about 2-3 weeks. That's long enough to see a lot of the scrapping. At the same time, Gai's still on his high and is likely studying There and the humagear tech before totally destroying it, since you never know what the Hidens may have done (remember, the founder h...

-Okay, what exactly is that move that Mr. 1000 did with all the animals? He secretly created a Jyuo progrise key. You just didn't catch it because progrise keys already look blocky. -I wonder why they got the astronaut Humagear to do a spy mission. Was he the only actor they could get for that role...

Re: KR Grease released

Finally had a moment to sit down and watch this, and I'm definitely in the minority on one point. Kazumi's behaviour has always been creepy and (coming from someone who's had a stalker) definitely makes the "otaku" title fit in the pure (non-American) sense. HOWEVER, I think Misora's always had some...

Re: KR Zero-One 19 released

On the surface, I would agree that this arc is repetitive and thus a little boring, but there are a LOT of details everyone's missing that keep it somewhat interesting. 1. Why are all of the champions for the ZAIA Specs assholes? If anyone remembers the Neo Cybermen from Doctor Who (10th Doctor era)...

Re: KR Zero-One 15 released

Maybe the third antagonist would be the Ark itself... It would be reminiscent of GoBuster, with two of the three main villains falling only to have the third take over and reanimate the second. I could see ZAIA having its fun only for the Ark to turn on Gai and resurrect MJN but with their memories ...

Re: KR Zero-One 15 released

This was one of those episodes where cause and effect had a lot of symbology that was lost in translation. Izu's comprehension of family didn't translate well when she came up to Jin and Horobi. The intent was obviously to show her satisfaction at her brother's death being avenged. She wanted to see...

Re: KR Zero-One 09 released

There was one subtle implication I don't think anyone else caught. Hiden may not be the only Humagear manufacturers. In the scene where they were discussing whether or not to shut the Medigears down, the VP's toadie (not Siesta, the human male) said something about them having to leave the Humagear...

Re: KR Zero-One 08 released

If it wasn't for the fact that this is coming from Japan which has a much different view on public bigotry, I'd say the Big Three are not only showing the three outlooks on AI, but also a sort of representation of the three faces of Western cultural crisis. You have Aruto who's like my generation an...

Re: KR Build 25 released

While I agree it feels boring to have another proxy fight, I feel like it's a good writing strategy at this point. Consider this: 1. 2/3 of Japan has just been reunited. 2. (Night) Rogue has returned in a very Hopper Bros. fashion and it's pretty obvious he'll now be a permanent villain, whereas bef...

Re: Princess Jellyfish 02 released

There are so many aspects of this dorama that remind me of Personal Preference (a Korean drama about an architect who has to pretend he's gay to win an important contract). As someone else who's coming in fresh, I can't compare this to the manga or movie, but I really love it so far! I have to admit...
