The storyline sucks completely.

It was as if a woman was masturbating for you and when you are all hard up and ready to go, she disappears.

.......................
IT WAS GOOD OKAY! (I can't remember the whole story so I can't comment on how good it was.)

No one is saying that the drawing isn't good.

But the storyline truly sucks.

And no, it wasn't good at all when the storyline sucks.

For Evangelion Neon Genesis, the end of the TV OVA is supposed to trigger poeple to think, good and bold concept for the authors, but it just doesn't feel completed, we are shonen, we don't want to think about the character flaws that everyone has! We want blood and violence! And for a mecha anime, more mechas! Ok, seriously, you gotta get the ending movie, it wraps up all the loose ends. It's good, but considering I have to go get another movie, it didn't make my list.

Short spoiler below, press CTRL + A to read.
Seele attacks Nerv, Shinji jerks off in front of a naked/comatose Asuka (not joking), third impact, humanity gets turned back into a primeval soup of sorts, rebirth ala adam and eve style

Lodoss war, yup, really old one too. I can't remember how long ago they aired it on TV, but I missed alot of the episodes, quickly bought the dvd set when I saw it.

Actually, I find Howle's Moving Castle and Cat's Return a bit dissapointing too. Artwork and concept is wonderful, but compared to his previous works like Spirited Away, Nausica and Laputa, the storyline kinda falls short.

Another recommended Manga is Death's Note. Not sure if the Anime's out yet.

Ghibli movies deserve their own thread.

I didn't like the ones with "Earth Good, People Bad" themes, which I why Nuassica and Mononoke Hime aren't my favs, though they seem to be amongst the most popular of the pre-Spirited Away movies. But the music (Joe Hidashi) in Mononoke Hime is absolutely inspiring.

Totoro is still one of my favs, simply because it's so offbeat and surprising. Who doesn't want a ride on a Nekobus?

I like Kiki for the same reason.

Spirited Away is in a class of its own, of course. It *did* win an Oscar.

The Cat Returns didn't have Miyasaki involved all that much, and that really shows.

Howl's, however, is classic Miyasaki (who actually said he was going to retiring BEFORE making Spirited Away, and only did it because he saw a sulking girl at a friend's place, and came up with the story).

I think Howl's has all the hallmarks of a good movie, an excellent adventure, a protagonist you can care for, and good supporting characters (the scarecrow sidekick).

Note - all the names and titles are spelled wrong.

Ohh, and if you like Ghibli, you should watch Nadia - The Secret of Blue Water. Wonderful adventure tale. More or less the same concept as Laputa stretched across lots of episodes.

Fan-subs vs Odex CDs/DVDs.

Just take a look at these:





Fan Sub

Odex Sub



Which has better quality is obvious. Can anyone imagine this? A downloaded (so-called pirated copy) having better quality than a legal one?

And no, I didn't got it the other way. If you don't believe me? Just watch it on Kids Central between 3 - 4pm Saturday.

And if Odex's own stuff isn't so bway kan - and about 'as good as' Backstroke of the West, would fans be complaining?
