His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
Verb, watch Aggretsuko

i just find myself confounded with how popular of a character she is, as though she were a naruto character

Japan has a fascination with characters who act prickly and unapproachable but, deep down, really just want to be loved, even though the story beats the viewer over the head with how self-destructive this behavior is because, like any extremely popular genre-breaking and defining work, a lot of NGE's supposed fans haven't watched it.

Fans in the west like her design and the mountains of porn and rarely have much to say about her personality because, like any extremely popular genre-breaking and defining work, a lot of NGE's supposed fans haven't watched it. Tangentially related: the masturbation scene is believed to be a commentary by Anno on how fucked up it is to treat such broken and sick people as fetish material -- which is what the series is best known for, right after how dark and depressing it is.

Because, like any extremely popular genre-breaking and defining work, a lot of NGE's supposed fans haven't watched it. Or, I guess, just missed the point or didn't care or whatever.

Monster (Madhouse, 2004, five episodes) The plot is actually pretty intriguing, but I don't know if it's 70+ episodes intriguing. I like the slow pace and the atmosphere is great, but what's lacking to me is the overall presentation. The art style is incredibly fucking bland. Believe it or not, you can have and maintain a gritty and realistic tone and setting without making everything look so visually uninteresting. Everything else seems fine, but I just don't really have an interest in continuing at this point. Like I said, the story is interesting, but it's not that interesting. Maybe if it were 20 episodes long. 6/10

Trigun (Madhouse, 1998, three episodes) Really nothing special. I may have been more into it as a preteen, or something, but I'm just far too jaded to appreciate dumb shit like this in my adulthood. 4/10

Aggretsuko (Fanworks, 2018, completed) Okay, so the premise of this one pretty much speaks for itself: it's a slice-of-life comedy with Hello Kitty-esque characters where a cute little panda-looking thing copes with the daily grind of her soul-crushing desk job by singing death metal at a karaoke parlor. If that concept alone doesn't sound absolutely precious to you, you can safely avoid watching it, because the show is very much presented as is. I, for one, thought it was delightful, and certainly something unique in the sea of homogeneity that is modern anime. Just don't tell anyone I said that. fun/10

Castle in the Sky (Studio Ghibli, 1986, completed) 5/10

Fist of the North Star (Toei, 1984, one episode) 1/10

I will note that Trigun as a series transitions from episodic to an overarching plot over the course of its run, similar to Teen Titans.

And tbh I think it suffers a bit from the fact that the anime ran before the manga was anywhere near complete. And unlike Hunter x Hunter, it didn't get a reboot a decade later to complete it. Still a good show, but it still feels a bit incomplete to me.

There are some pretty big misses in Netflix's lineup. That cg animation is hard to stomach.

to get it straight, i don't think asuka is a BAD character, i just don't like her because i don't feel like i'm supposed to

she definitely has her place in the narrative and i understand her function in the story

i just find myself confounded with how popular of a character she is, as though she were a naruto character

Blame the underground Japanese porn industry.  The Japanese fetishise her because she isn't Japanese, Americans like her because she's a badass.

Strong, assertive, tsundere types are like crack for japs.

Blame! looks pretty good as far as CGi Anime goes. It's fucking parsecs beyond Clangserk, for sure.

I like RWBY well enough, but it should have just been a series of plotless fight demo videos like it started as with maybe a little lore binding it together. That way the inexperienced writing wouldn't be a problem.
