    That's great
    Recently I was on a rampage of yuri doujins. So, it was a nice change of pace to see the plot more focused on emotions. Actually after reading 5-6 doujins I just read the others for the emotional parts and skimmed through the "intimate" parts

    I'll start assembling a MAL list - seems like it's the trendy thing to do these days I made a short list based off of my memory; I'll have to dig through my CD/DVD burned archive to see the rest, but here's what I have so far:

    The last series that I watched that was actively airing before I stopped was Gundam 00. I think that was early 2008. In thinking it over to make the list at MAL, though, I realize that there are quite a few shows that I either started watching and never finished, or just never got around to...

    Thanks for the offer, I appreciate it. (And looking at our conversation history, it looks like I left you hanging back in February - sorry about that!)

    Most of the series recommendation talk related to about a year ago, when I was getting back into anime after a bit of a hiatus and was finding it difficult to appreciate some of the eccentricities that are present in many series. Since then I've broken into quite a few series, and I think I'm back to being able to appreciate the eccentric points again. So, at this point I'm not really looking for anything in particular, and I've queued up a few series. But if you want to give me some recommendations, I'm all for hearing some.

    I'm now avoiding harem/ecchi series, and prefer those that are a bit more serious in nature. I was following series somewhat regularly up until around 2007/2008, so I'm interested in series that have come out since then.

    I viewed Angel Beats! and thought it was great; I'm currently watching Guilty Crown, Another, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun (and Index season 2) and Clannad. I have Hanasaku Iroha, Hidan no Aria, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, and Chrome-Colored Regios in queue. If there are any series that you think I should check out (or any that I've listed that you think are a waste of time), I'd be pleased to hear it.

    Yep, though not sure why that matters.

    Though I'm sure you would have gotten a better answer by asking her directly, or checking profile.

    Haha, sorry, but Kona and I were messing around. We really did have issues with IM, because my internet connection sucks balls, and there were spammers IMing me, causing spam settings to be too restrictive.

    Short story goes, we were sorta mocking the e-drama with certain subforums (Just fathom a guess) and I pretended to go off on Reckoner and even did the defriending thing to make it look more convincing. So Kona was there and I got her to play along. XD I just thought it'd be funny if our "opponents" saw us in disarray. But unfortunately I guess a lot of innocent people like Triple R were tricked. Had to apologize to him too. XD

    But sure, I do feel like shit often, make no mistake. I'll take you up on your suggestion eventually. The one that helped me when I was feeling like shit was the Colorful movie, though. Try that if you haven't done so already. Fortunately, I've been finding recent anime to my liking and even if I don't, I usually can derive something useful from it.

    Of course, after all Kino's Journey is as close you can get to high art with an anime. It doesn't matter if the show is limited in it's animation, because it makes up with being strong on the visual design, background art and mastery in the usage of colour to invoke emotions and even at times act as dialogue. Kino's Journey is a very subtle show when it comes to it's visual aspect, so it never needed high level of animation to get it's message across (it did so with being clever with it's visuals and having a very strong script to run with).

    BRS, on the other hand, has none of the subtly or mastery in it's script that Kino's Journey, and it's going for something different in it's visuals (Reboot-esque designs, surreal backgrounds, stylish posing etc.) mainly, it's trying to go for the more pronounced, louder look for it's fights. It's trying to look grand, shocking, unrelenting ... so there isn't a point in comparing them, since after all Kino's is simply better.

    The thing is, I love to see where they go with what they are doing in BRS since this could be a opening a new possibility for animation, and I'm interested in seeing where it goes. Plus I really do like the style Imaishi is bringing to the fights, which is a plus for myself.

    But yeah, the show is being dragged down by a very weak script, and no amount of impressive visuals can save it, unfortunately.

    Well, the 2D animation isn't anything to be impressed by most of the time (I'm not sure if the folks over at Ordet simply don't really care) but the 3D animation, especially what they are aiming to go for with it, is simply worth it for myself imo.

    Hiroyuki Imaishi is among my favorite animators in the industry, and so I was willing to give this show a shot even though I wasn't too keen on the CG deal (never was a fan of including it in a 2D show, since the result often vary from bad to simply passable). What I got out of this show was that Sanzigen wasn't kidding around. They really are trying to go for something here, and I am honestly more open to seeing more anime implement CG in the future (I'm even more open about the new Berserk movies and Cyborg 009)
    The animation seemed smooth but that's not much when the visuals themselves are bad to begin with.
    Putting the character designs aside for the moment, I want to say that what was impressive about BRS animation and CG isn't that it's smooth. It's that how half the time it doesn't even look like CG at all. Every Otherworld scene you watch is completely, 100% CGI, and while it shows with certain scenes that it was certainly animated via a computer, the other time you can't help but wonder if they didn't slip by a 2D animated scene in between. What Sanzigen had done here (and I recommend you watch their commentary sometime if your interested) is attempt to replicate the feel and natural look of traditional 2D animation by using only 3D techniques, and so far, I think they managed to achieve it. It helps when you have someone with a very distinctive style like Imaishi working on the action scenes since it helps that his styles gives additional emphasis on the impact between each frame and how to give additional ''coolness'' to each figure during the fight.

    What Imaishi and Sanzigen had done is show that there is a future for 3D animation with anime, that when these techniques are mastered they can not only replace traditional 2D animation, but also open the road to new possibilities by showing a more accurate and effective way of animating shows. To me at least, this is not only interesting but a little exciting since this could truly be a sign for the future of animation.
    Those character designs were mortifying
    Well, I agree that they look quite bad. But as a guy who had grown up watching CG cartoons like Beast wars and Reboot, I can't help but warm up to these designs lol.
