Escaflowne thread?

Went into this blind after looking to explore the Mecha genre separate from Gundam. I was pleasantly surprised with the solid pacing and unique presentation, it's a great show to immerse yourself in, great for escapism.

It was the popularity the show had outside of Japan that led to the production of the movie funnily enough. Popular enough in western countries like in Germany for example

The new Love Live music video is CUTE CUTE CUTE !!!!!! The song sounds pretty good too.

I'm still undecided about how I feel about the Nijigasaki generation. This latest release looks promising though. I worry that the characters might be poorly written despite the musical content being decent.

The future direction of the franchise seems unclear at this point. I'm hoping that we'll get at least one more anime season for Aqours. It looks like they're starting to release solo music albums for each Aqours member. Hopefully Corona doesn't seriously affect the financial viability of the franchise.

A new generation has been announced recently ("Love Live Superstar"). At this point that generation is a total wild card. I'm cautiously optimistic about the smaller size of the group though (5 members). Larger group sizes mean that some members can be kind of neglected; this is particularly true in the animated content. So a smaller group might have better character development. It'll probably also diminish any scheduling problems with the various seiyuus. On the other hand though, if one character is a bad singer then it will have a stronger effect on the overall quality of the vocals. So hopefully they will all be good vocalists.

Anyway, let's have a thread about MY FAVOURITE FRANCHISE OF ALL TIME. Yay!

No spoilers ITT plz. Let's discuss how much we love Love Live and how we feel about the future of the franchise. Let's post musical content and art, and talk about our favourite characters and ships! Who is the best singer and what are your favourite songs? Will the soul of the franchise and fanbase be preserved as these new generations are introduced?

This years anime convention connichi (germany) will be held online because of this virus pandemic. it appears that everyone will be free to watch the stream for free. I am not sure if they will block IP adresses from outside germany from watching it.
I felt obligated to inform everyone of this event.

>link: https://online.connichi.de/online/

I don't know if they will have english subtitles though

>program: https://plan.connichi.de

here is the program plan. there are some high profile guests from the anime industry and apparently they will show interviews, concerts and workshops / cosplay competitions.

I have no idea how this will be but I have nothing to do on friday and I might try this one out.
I hope it will be fun

I think you're looking at the wrong movies and in the long way.
Walt himself in his films isn't as pronounced Miyazaki is in his and he definitely felt like a business man first and an artist second, but there are some parallels, like Walt's love for trains and Miyazaki's love for planes. It just manifested more into theme parks and some live-action movies then it did with animated films, marked by an extreme sense of sentimental nostalgia, wanting to go back to his childhood and dissatisfaction with his later years. And maybe his focus on fairy tales is a sign that this was always present within him.
Sage for probably being extremely off topic

He still mentioned his dissatisfaction about self-absorbed otaku, but he rambled about a lot of things.
I actually searched for the drunk Miyazaki paper but couldn't find it, nice!

>>34465
Honestly it's been a while since I dug into Disney works besides the old movies and comics, which I mainly enjoyed in my childhood, so my comparison was a bit one-sided.

Makes sense that Walt Disney also was invested in the medium or he wouldn't have started the business, the company just got very big which usually means less personal involvment, but I don't even know how long he was calling the shots in their creations, so it's interesting to learn about his possible motivations in the way you described. We could probably go much deeper into his influences via old interviews etc., but honestly I am too lazy for that haha

He's right and you all know it. There's nothing wrong with being in love with a 2d 12-yo. A 3d one is a different story, but not because of the age, but because it's 3d simping, which should be punishable by death.

What should be the best measures that we should take to gatekeep anime has hard as it get?
Remember, if you don't believe in gatekeeping, you are a normalgroid.

Some measures that I suggest are:
-Knowing in deep a lot about an anime, visual novel, light novel, novel, manga or game in particular.
-Having a decent knowledge about the medium.
-Being very invested into at least one work.
-Being very invested at least in one fandom.

Is not neccesary to have all these things, but at least one. What more should be added?

I'm looking for a new animu to watch, I've listed some of the stuff I highly rated, maybe there will be something others may be interested in listed below, but I would greatly appreciate any recommendations based on what you think I might love.

Animus: Serial Experiments Lain, Akagi, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, Psychiatrist Irabu, FMA:brotherhood, neongenesisevangerion, steins gate (prob gonna watch steins gate: zero if nothing seems better), Gilgamesh, Death Note, Ping Pong the animation, Baccano! , NHK…

Those are the best I can think of at the moment.

I'm not sure this is what I'm looking for. It reminds me a lot of the OAVs Viz/funimation would release in the 90s where nothing happens for almost the entire run time then there would be a few minutes of over the top action. It's the sort of pacing I was trying to avoid since I've watched far too many of those and it's not what I'm after right now.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Let's have a thread to post aesthetically pleasing anime-style art. We can post nice character designs, landscapes, cute couples (hetero or otherwise), franchise promo art, wallpapers, etc…

This thread could be a catch-all for anything that doesn't belong in the gender-specific threads.

Nothing too sexualized please. There are already other threads for that kind of thing.

Mirror is always pretty high on my recommendation list.
It is a legitimately well done match 3 game with a good level of difficulty, interesting mechanics, and overall decent gameplay.
And the H-scenes are alright, with most of the succubi being hot.

My favorite H-game bar none is MonsterGirl Quest.
But I will say it most certainly isn't for everyone, as it has a little bit of everything including some rather extreme fetishes. Legitimately enjoyed the story, and the fights in hardcore mode were actually challenging.
