https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFaH7Q5UfnU&lc Just imagine this: You are an elite navy soldier, proven yourself in many battles, maybe even in the New World. Your strength and speed is low level superhuman, far stronger than regular humans even dream of becoming. Maybe you even show enough potential that your officers started training you in Haki or Rokushiki. Anyway, you are among the 100.000 best of the Navy, chosen to fight in a war against one of the World Governments greatest enemies. Your skill and speed have so far kept you unharmed in this monumental battle. You are rather close to Whitebeard himself. A truly frightening foe, several times a normal humans size, unbelievable strength and one of the most powerful devil fruits of all. In a world, with Giants, Hybrids, Fishman, mink & So many unknown types of people, and among them he's holding the title "THE STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD"; A walking, living legend. But he is old, sick and injured. Sengoku gives the order to finish him. This is the chance to prove yourself! You and your comrades have stood against unbearable odds before! Together you can surely beat the monster! Together you charge at him. Some of you stab Whitebeard, one fires a bazooka directly into his face. He starts to fall! Then, suddenly he straightens back up. His voice like an angry roaring thunder as he reminds you who he is. He takes one big swing with his giant blade. Doesn't even use his feared devil fruit ability, just the strength of his arm. A gust of wind, a huge shockwave rips your body from the ground. There is dust and rubble everywhere, you can't see anything, you just feel that you have absolutely no control over your body anymore. The dust clears and you realize that you are suddenly hundreds of meters above the ground, falling to certain death. How frightening that must be.
Can anyone link/post a good quality version of Jango's Dance Carnival? I've seen it in AMVs and remember it from way back when but I haven't been able to find a good quality version of it online. https://onepiece.fandom.com/wiki/Jango%27s_Dance_Carnival

>>5169 Something I forgot to add. One of the bits I remember from Del Toro's commentary track is the idea of creating different levels of colour and light to create scale. I think it came up during Gipsy vs. Leatherback. That scene had the surface level be saturated with the warm orange of the dock lights and the night sky overhead in cooler blacks and blues. I think it's present in old Siberia too albeit in a subtler fashion. Most of the sunlight is focused on the cracks between clouds while the rest of the scene is enveloped by the shade. The release version is lit too well and evenly above and below to achieve this effect. I also love the streaks of reflected light on the ice surface in the old version. Not something we'd be able to appreciate in real time, but it does make for a pretty wallpaper. All in all, using proto-Siberia as a general lesson, we have: >placing quantifiable elements in background and foreground for scale >having different levels of colour/light for scale >purposeful usage of weather and lighting to create appropriate atmosphere Emphasis on the last one especially during the day.
>>5234 >creating different levels of colour and light to create scale We see this really well in the initial Gipsy-Danger vs Knifehead fight as well.
>>5216 Could I replace watching the series for the first movie "A contact"? I'm really short of time and Ideon has been on my watchlist for a literal decade lol.
>>5249 No, it's not like the Gundam 0079 movies. It compresses the story too much and you won't be able to make sense of the plot. Ideon is a bit padded in the middle, but you really need to watch the series to appreciate Be Invoked.

>>5234 >comparison #4 - the pose Yet again, warmer colours traded for more brightness. I'd say the new one still looks good. An example of how the bright white can work. I think the trick lies in making it glint and shine without making it glossy. The battle damage looks nice and adds another layer of detail. I love the old one though. The morning/evening look and gentler shade that doesn't completely obscure sets a strangely positive mood. Comfy, even. >comparison #5 - group shot Not exactly the most well-regarded moment in either case. But new the excessive filter just drowns out the other jaegers' colours and the highly reduced shadows make it that extra video gamey. I like how the original had Gipsy mostly shadowed. It's interesting at least. I also found an edit which further darkened it. >>5235 Can't understate how important the wonderfully done water effects are too. The waterline practically acts as a divider and the water physics add to the sense of scale similarly to how the movements of the jaegers do. The Knifehead fight is visually the most raw and dour. The only sources of light are Gipsy's searchlights and the occasional lightning under the midnight storm. There's no music for the first half either. Great tone setter. It really drives home that the common emotion when facing a kaiju is pants-shitting terror, even with a jaeger. Whatever bravado Raleigh had is gone by the time he's begging his brother to shoot it dead. The most "fun" the movie got was when Gipsy arrived in Hong Kong. The arenas brightened up considerably, first with the blues and oranges of Leatherback and then the neon lights of Otachi. The earlier double event moved up from Knifehead through the addition of distant lights from the background cityscape. The final battle is lit by searchlights, vents, the trench and Breach itself. Darker, but still colourful. Whatever one can moan about "night" or "rain", there are unique qualities within each scene. There is variety even with the thematic constant of darkness and water. A variety that is strangely missing in Uprising, given how much freedom it had. I don't feel there's much to celebrate about daylight when they end up being the same shade of noon and the setpieces themselves already suffering from other problems. Not a striking sunrise or sunset. Not even the gloomy, cloudy Siberia made it. The way I see it, the first film used the night as a means to play around with light. Is it not the point then, that the day should be an opportunity to experiment with darkness?

>the author of Welcome to the NHK turned to spiritualism after shitting on religion on his works >also a decade of not doing anything at all later he's now making a fanservice-filled generic isekai with a hikki MC God it feels like Berserk all over again.
I find that a lot of people who spends their earlier years excessively and obsessively ranting and raving about religion and its 'evils' seem to be people who are just angry and hurt and in their later years turn to moderate versions of the things they lambasted.
>the author of Welcome to the NHK turned to spiritualism after shitting on religion on his works Considering NHK ni Youkoso was a loose self-biography this isn't very surprising, it's how they cope and why you find so many religious types on imageboards. Also it's a shame he sold out after being unable to write anything good or at all in so long.
Nothing's wrong with Buddhist spiritualism. It's good for mental health and to cope in neoliberal hellscape.

>>5220 I wonder if they'll ever return to touch on the fact that the powerless are considered inferior untermensch, or if it's all ok now since midoriya was a just lucky boy who got rewarded for being so fanatic. Is the author not setting any of this up to criticize the commercialization of heroism shit? Do they really think this world is nice just because people have powers? The world seems built so perfectly to be primed for the commentary to come in and hit hard, but it really doesn't seem like it actually wants to criticize like The Boys or Tiger & Bunny (if I'm remembering its plot correctly) do.
>>5224 Essentially yes, every time the author comes close to insightful commentary about the flaws of such a system they undermine it with "muh cool heroes are good so it's all fine!" >Tiger & Bunny Yes, finally someone else recognizes it as well.
>>5224 >>5227 Feel like he never made up his mind on whether he wanted it to be a fun escapist romp or a more realistic and critical take on superheroes. The half-assed take on some of these ideas doesn't scan. You can't clearly portray your protagonists as child soldiers in a corrupt system while also saying "it's okay, just enjoy them punching the bad guys". You can't show your villains as being mostly born from social failings but then also portray no positive attempts to change the system and expect the heroes' victories to ring as triumphant. You can't make one of your main heroes essentially a racist but then expect us to forget it completely because of how cool and strong he is. You can't portray the typical shonen "be the number one!" attitude as being destructive but then also have it be the whole core of the story. And so on. It could be REALLY interesting if MHA turned into a story about the kids trying to fix a blatantly broken society. Not even because it'd be the "leftist" way to do it, but because it would be a way to handle all these nuances with actual impact and meaning instead of just standard signifiers of depth. But it ain't happening.
Another thing to point out is that in the story they mention that the dvent of quirks caused social collapse and that "without quirks they'd be traveling space long ago". Except that's inane due to the sheer scope of abilities like gravity manipulation and other quirks that make things like scarcity of products a non-factor.
>>5250 Yeah, if I recall correctly, a whole century's meant to've passed since the advent of quirks. And this caused mass insurrection on a global scale, which the advent of superpowers realistically should do. But then with that fundamental correct setup, the author gets everything else so wrong. After a whole century, with quirks having finally proliferated through most of the world's population, the world just fucking returns to the exact same Liberal status quo of a century ago. The same status quo which couldn't handle the fucking quirks originally! The same status quo whose faults constantly show, and of course causes the problems of the series that, as previously remarked, are never actually resolved. Even the same modern status quo issue of Japan's shrinking population is present in a supposedly totally changed world, as I seem to recall Gran Torino mentioning it to Midoriya when he goes out to learn from him So the very foundational ideas of this fictional world suffer from the same issues as every plot in it. A set up that is so perfect for commentary, that it's as if it's been so totally squandered intentionally.

I watched the first 6 episodes of NGE おたく 06/12/2020 (Fri) 22:51:52 No. 599 [Reply] [Last]
And wow, I fucking hated it to be perfectly honest. It seems like the entire show is only about Shinji's angst (and Rei increasingly I'm sure) and the characters various emotional issues, but like, okay, who cares? The situations they're thrown into are totally absurd and ridiculous so how can I take any of this drama stuff seriously? Like these kids are the last best hope of mankind and they seem to be totally unsupported by anyone? Shinji was gonna live in a totally empty tenement and it's only his superior's minor moment of reasonable judgement that means he lives with her instead (and she is clearly no kind of parent figure), and Rei lives in a dark, dingy slum dwelling made of all concrete with nobody taking care of her either? Like, their emotional reactions seems somewhat understandable but also completely dull and uninteresting because the situation they're in is absurd (and even then they both come off as pathetic and unlikeable - and no you can't say 'but that's the point!!', that doesn't make it entertaining to watch). The less said about the non-angst portions of the story the better, the 'fights' are 10 minutes of foreplay for like 60 seconds of action if that, and while that's a common problem with anime, that doesn't make it excusable. Yes this series is old and I'm sure it has inspired so much but people still recommend to watch it and it just seemed like garbage. Almost nothing is explained which means I can't possibly feel invested in this absurd world in any way. Every part of the setting seems to have been created with 'style over substance' in mind, urgh, just overall I found it absurd. Try not to give too much spoilers because I guess I might still try watch it, but I really don't see it redeeming itself. Though for context I also hated 'The Godfather' and 'No Country For Old Men' and thought they were pretentious overlong shit, so maybe I'm just a contrarian.

I'm calling Asushin victory in the next Evangelion. I'm basing this a process of elimination and the ending of EoE. Kaworu is dead, Rei will be used in the instrumentality and Mari doesn't fit the ending thematically. Since the instrumentality will be started with 01 and Asuka lacks her Evangelion it's safe to assume she'll be in the middle of it. Barring Anno dropping a brick on her head she'll be the last one standing with a confession. Tic toc Mariasufags, tic toc.

>>5197 I guess it was more like Real life with jeffrey goggles, maybe his last reflections as he slipped into lolicon valhalla, with dumb shit added on needlessly because it's physically possible for me to type in literally any string of characters and hit reply. It was gonna be a more mature (heh) slice of life anime where the first arc is just Protagonist Jeffrey Epstein smoking cigarettes and philosophizing about life after he's done molesting kids. All the kids are voiced by the actress that did adult hamtaro, in order to reflect how Jeffrey sees them interchangeably. Like think of Jeffrey Epstein as having aged out of his pedo haram anime days and now it's a more mature, more emotionally deep jeffrey that doesn't just want to finger 13 year olds, now he wants to read lot's of plato and be a philanthropist and also finger 13 year olds
