Charlotte recent newsShow
from someone at MAL wrote:Image
Translation of Taglines by ANN:
Left:
"The boy confronts fate, even if he loses something precious,"
Right:
"The monster continues to challenge fate, even if it means forgetting someone precious."
  • Maeda warning, the TV show will be held slower pace in the first 6 episodes, "people do not bored" -he said.
  • It will have a corresponding part of After Story and Refrain.
  • According to Maeda, this series will expand and improve the lot of shortcomings worldview than Angel Beats!
  • It would have run voice and text for preview episode (like Angel Beats!).
  • The last PV will publish on 26/6.

Watch it anyways. Especially the last few minutes of the special broadcast. It reveals direct footage from the anime with voicing and all, and the scene is hilarious.

Also, this makes me want to cry if it's actually one of the themes. Although with a band named "How Low Hello"...I guess this totally fits right in. ._.

Staff Talk Event: http://www.bilibili.com/video/av2462744/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Probably pointless to watch this one with if you dunno Japanese. I haven't.

Special Broadcast: http://www.bilibili.com/video/av2463698/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Some interesting tidbits. Mostly understandable just from video context clues.

God damn, I'm too hyped about Charlotte that I'm probably giving it a 10/10 even if it's a train wreck. Like Angel Beats!

though I disagree that AB! is a train wreck (even though it's nowhere near the holy trinity)

only hope that finally there's a KEY work that can fill the role of "Autumn" with no one to question about it.

And here you go, Random Curiosity's Summer 2015 Preview:

http://randomc.net/2015/06/27/summer-2015-preview/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

High priority:
- The [email protected]: Cinderella Girls 2 - More Anastasia, Ranko and Mika (with a side order of Rin)? Yes, please. ;)
- GATE: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakeri - Basically a similar scenario to Fall 2013's Outbreak Company (Japan discovering a portal to an alternate fantasy world), except the military solution is used first. Considering Japan's wartime history and this series presenting Japanese right-wing nationalist views, I'll be expecting criticism of the show from...certain national governments...
- Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Zwei Herz! - At least the Illya in this 'verse hasn't met a heart-wrenching fate...yet. Also looking forward to more comedic moments with Rin and Luvia.
- To LOVE-Ru – Trouble Darkness 2nd - The quintessential ecchi fix for this season. (And probably a "go-to" show if you were disappointed with how High School DxD BorN ended. ._.)
- WORKING!!! - Need a good laugh every now and then, as well as Poplar (Kana Asumi) occasionally screaming, "I'm not tiny!"
- Aquarion Logos - Probably the only mecha anime for this season.

Might take a look at:
- Charlotte - Another P.A. Works-Key Visual Arts collaboration? Sure.
- Wakaba Girl - Despite the existence of another established slice-of-life show further below, I'd rather give this new series a chance.
- Classroom Crisis - Light sci-fi fix, possibly in the vein of Plastic Memories. (Minus the tearjerker moments.)
- Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou - Ecchi supplement to To LOVE-Ru – Trouble Darkness 2nd. Also, I like to think of this series as the spiritual successor/fanon sequel to the Rosario+Vampire manga (not the horribly butchered anime).
- GANGSTA. - Would this be the anime version of Sin City? Let's find out...
- Jitsu wa Watashi Wa* - Another contender to the "Rosario+Vampire spiritual successor" title.
- Aoharu x Kikanjuu* - Hope this survival game anime will be more fun to watch than Sabagebu, yet not as deconstructing as C3-bu was.

Hahahaha... NO:
- Non Non Biyori Repeat :cooltongue:

(* - new additions)

Will watch:
- Charlotte
- Durarara 2-2
- Working 3
- Cinderella Girls 2
- Maybe that seiyuu anime, because the chara design is from Hata.

But hey, it seems like a good season to watch some old anime.

Gangsta - First ImpressionShow
It's so slow yet so fast...
it's so fast yet so slow...
The transitions of each scene is kinda annoying, and the zoom is too close. Though perhaps it could be because they want to brag about the details on the character design (which is good.) But it's kinda disturbing because I can't see the whole room well.
well, not that upclose take is bad, it's just this one forget to introduce the viewers to the visual realization of where and when and jump straight to close take.

The lack of "proper" action scene is annoying.
Ranpo Kidan - First ImpressionShow
Kobayashi is cute, though nowhere near Nagisa <3

1. Lazy arses don't even draw the bg chara ._.
But then again it helps setting the mood - all the bg and unrevealed charas are in gray, which shows Kobayashi's view of the world.
2. That piano in the first scene, why do I feel I ever heard there? anyone knows and remember the title?
3. But they failed to explain Kobayashi's interest in mystery, they skipped the most important introduction - introduction to the main hero.
If one does not notice important scenes such as Kobayahi realizing that Sensei is using a perfume, one would never guess that his senses are quite sharp.

Fuck you, Urobuchi. Totally assuming you're the one who killed off Mashiro. And is that dragon Nasu's idea? :lol:

Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri Episode 1Show
Hah. This really is Outbreak Company: Invasion Scenario.
...Well, I guess it would be the other way around, with Outbreak Company being the series to take from Gate.
I really loved the former. Like, the one anime feel did right. Hoping this doesn't disappoint.

Elf girl best girl.
