It will be interesting to see the new route Studio Ghibli takes now that it is making TV animes.
Nausicaa show, please.

Did it anyone watch the Sailor Moon Crystal premiere? The animation alone is worth it, but I could do without the voice actor for Usagi...I'm sure I'll get used to it.

I watched it, I was unaware it was going to be a complete re-boot, kind of disappointing that its just a flashier version of something that was already done (and not as good as the original imo). This is my wife's all time favourite anime so I'll keep watching it with her though.

They also remastered the 90s version, I understand?

I guess as it goes along, it's going to be more obvious, the differences between this version and the 90s as this is going to be far more faithful to the manga. At least that's what I'm being told.

Also, I'm ashamed to admit that I never watched the original Japanese version, so I didn't realize that was the same voice for Usagi as in the original , my friend was quick to point this out to me. I was quick to point out to him that I still can't find myself calling her anything but Serena, so this is going to take some time.

FLCL is the fucking shit. Strangest anime out there and it's a crowded field.

I'm doing to do a little reading on it, pick up the blu-ray and return to it in a couple of years.

Yeah, I...uh...I think I mostly got what was going on, but this is going to require some further reading, pretty sure.

Second episode of Sailor Moon was on today, as well. It's a fun trip down memory lane, but I honestly can't quite tell what the purpose of this is.

Watched enough attack on Titan a few weeks ago at work, I see what lance was getting at. It was ok, I probably won't watch the rest of what's on Netflix though.

I'm still only two or three episodes in, so not really far enough to make an opinion, but I was really enjoying it for the most part.

I understand that recycled scenes/images are a big part of anime, but I swear they show the kid's mom getting eaten like 345 times in the first 5 episodes.

And everyone having German sounding names was really throwing me off,

Bi-monthly stop-in to say: I really enjoyed watching Sailor Moon this weekend.

I saw the English version that aired on CN when I was a kid.

I suppose it wasn't a great translation, from what I'm told, but I thought they did a fair job, in retrospect. I recall reading the translated Manga at the time, as well, and found it super strange that her name was Rabbit, lol. Never could figure out if that was a nickname. Also, that dub tended to take out some of the stranger transformation dialogue.

I'm really having fun watching this, but I still kinda don't get the point.

The English dub was a major hack job and the season final especially with the showdown with Beryl is much darker and violent then what they showed in North America - I think they compressed something like a 3 episode arc down to 30 minutes, it was brutal.

I'm assuming this remake will show all that but I recommend the original Japanese version if you can find it.
