That's pretty much the whole plot of Chobits
Fansubbing for fans by fans
Okay, I just pictured that in my head and it's funnier than it should be... XD
Not quite sure, honestly, it just came out like that for me, I guess they stuck with me for some reason? Though it might also be because they're shorter and faster to memorize/write than the alternative?
I do it cause I keep forgetting the names and trust others posting to say the name somewhere in their posts so I can look like I can remember people outside of their faces.
I had the same thought at first. But in the very next scene, both Izu and Anna are grilling the VP pretty hard. So it (thankfully) ends up being a bit more nuanced than what we first see. Still, they're played by human actors, which is why we feel uncomfortable at times.
I didn't even know there was a musical. This is the second Sailor Moon to show up in a SHT show this year, so Toei must be on a SM bender.Anna is played by the lovely Ohkubo Satomi, who was Sailor Moon if you're a fan of the new musicals.
I'd just be glad to have the show stop fridging the HumaGear of the week every single week. Every time we meet a new one, they get irrecoverably jacked by the end of the episode.I'd be glad to see less of the noble woman who sacrifices herself for the cause trope in Japanese media.
Kudos to Davinci. That looked really cool!Everyone, pay attention to the Anna berserk scene. Davinci copied the frame numbers in to get it to match with the video. Pretty dedicated!
Yua's beauty mark? I can see the first two's character traits being tied into being HumaGears, but you've lost me on how a mole is a sign of a robot.
From the establishing shots in the first couple of episodes, it appears that the Ark is MetsubouJinrai's version of the Zea satellite. They seem to be using the original satellite that was being built for Daybreak, and converting it to nefarious purposes.
Right? I realize that the gauntlets extend past the hands (as opposed to replacing them), but it still looks unintentionally hilarious. Giant Rider, little gun.
Battlestar Galactica has corrupted us; when it turns out everyone really is a Cylon, you get suspicious of similar works.Also I keep seeing people have theories about any of the explicitly human characters turning out to be humagears. Honestly, I'd really hate it if they do that kind of twist but I'm going to try to keep an open mind about anything.
Now, how much for the optional biofuel upgrade that allows HumaGear to run off of soylent green?
Being the dumb westerner that I am, I thought Fuwa was his given name. I'll have to make a note to stick to Yui and Isamu from here on.
I was thinking the same thing; the nuclear disaster aspect of it and the fact that the area's considered unsafe and restricted years afterward make me think it was an intentional reference (part of me wonders if it's Japan's version of American movies with terrorists who want to wipe out cities and countries, although there are terrorists here as well).Lunagel wrote: ↑Thu Sep 26, 2019 10:44 amHere's what really caught my notice this episode. They mention around the beginning that the explosion is several nuclear reactors setting each other off in succession. Then later they mention the central control is in Humagear Manufacturing Factory 1. The Japanese here is ヒューマギア第一製造工場 (Humagear Daiichi Seizou Koujou), which bears an awful lot of resemblance to Fukushima Daiichi. Daiichi just means number one, so it's by no means an uncommon name, but specifically mentioning nuclear reactors and then calling the factory Daiichi seems like some sort of commentary. I could be overthinking this, but it's what my brain leaped to when I heard it.
