it's on (canadian, at least) netflix, but probably american too?
Oooh, good to know. I'll have to check it out and see.
its on american netflix as well!!
Oooh, I'm into the first ep, definitely interested in seeing more! Glad it's on Netflix, makes me feel better about watching.
march comes in like a lion is some quality animation holy shit
I enjoyed Yuki yuna! I ended up disliking MGRP though.
yeah punish a bunch of children for the dreadful crimes of 'liked cute phone games' and 'tried to be decent people.' Seriously when you have a character die for the purpose of punishing someone else for retrieving a kid's Keychain you fucked up.
Glad people are watching vivid strike, though it's not a great representation of the rest of nanoha. Also I need to start up nanoha streams again...
sooooo for those of you who are watching/watched yuki yuna and liked it, it's getting a season 2 in 2017! but i warn you not to click the link until you're done with the series, since further down the page it gets kind of spoilery (if vaguely so).
in other news, flip flappers continues to be rad as heck (with one ep to go!!!) and i really wish there were nendoroids of some of the outfits b/c they're so cute.
Isn't it going to be movies, not episodes?
nope! it's definitely an anime, at least according to anime news network. it will have theatrical screenings before airing, though!
i don't see how punishing really comes into it. the magical girls died 'cause fav and cranberry messed with the selection process, making it so magical girls would die when they get eliminated from the competition and turn against each other in order to stay alive. what fav and cranberry did was them being evil, not intended as a just punishment for the magical girls by the narrative.
Yes I am aware of that, being as I watched the show, the problem is out of universe. Alice's death is very clearly linked to Snow White doing her a favor. Hell, at the end of the show they actually have snow white talk about how small good deeds are useless! Which, wow, fuck you, most people can't tear down terrorist organizations but we can at least be kind to each other, maybe don't play that off like it's worthless?
In the end it's just another magical girl show going MURDER DEATH GORE LOOK HOW EDGY AND GRIMDARK WE ARE and trying to be Madoka, which got old basically the split second madoka ended.
Spoiler: clarification re: MGRP opinion bc Anxiety
i wanted to clarify that i haven't watched Magical Girl Raising Project but i heard about the Grimdark Edginess re: seeming to punish girls and women for simply liking things and that was my main issue (besides being a little tired of grimdark edgy stuff). i could be wrong, though, so when this season/series is over i might watch it b/c i'm curious as to how it's going to do the whole "murder+death" thing differently than madoka did. i hope that my liking that post didn't come off as being hostile or anything. sometimes i think i can be kinda tone deaf. ^^;
on an unrelated note, the new designs for the new precure are out and they're really cute!!!! if any of ya'll have watched tokyo mew mew they're v reminiscent of those, which i'm kind of excited about, since TMM holds a special place in my heart for being one of Baby's First Subbed Animes.
the name of the new precure is kirakira precure! a la mode (and another reason why it automatically makes me think of TMM is bc koi wa a la mode is the name of its ending song (at least the first part of the series).
...i still haven't finished mahou girls OR gogo tho. i'm probably gonna binge watch both sometime within the next three weeks bc A) i love precure and B) i wanna be done w both of them before starting kirakira.
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOSH I wonder if it's an homage? I hope so! TMM was Baby's First Magical Girl (other than Sailor Moon) and really cemented my love for the designs and ensemble cast nature. A La Mode was also the second manga series in the same universe, and the leader of this crew looks a lot like a loving callback to Berry.
The designs are super cute!!!! And dessert themed!!!! And animal themed!!!!
There is no way this is not a love letter to Tokyo Mew Mew I am. So excited. I need to finish Mahou Girls and see if I can actually keep up with the weekly release schedule of Kirakira.
Same hat!! TMM was babby's first fandom and some of my first internet forays. I've been thinking of getting a tattoo if Ichigo's bell as a homage to just how damn much that show means to me.
Looks like I'll be watching precure!
i am so done with magical girl 'decontructions'
i just want friendship and frilly outfits gdi
i keep finding Rull Good Anime & i'm so pleased
the anime is called Concrete Revolutio, about the Superhuman Bureau in charge of keeping track of all superhumans in Japan
alien robot magical girls
i am not kidding
fuck it lets make a man cheetah hybrid who can stop time, now add more angst
inna's fav character trope, the trash detective: this time, he's a robot
witch girl who rides a flying segway
the flying segway
balloon animal ghost
i can't think of any more funny descriptions, just know that this show sounds fucking nuts & is amazing
good animation & art, i enjoyed the characters & plot lines
the show is free to watch from the show's website!
i finished mahou tsukai/mahou girls precure and i'm not sure how to feel but if anyone else watched it, please let me know because i would definitely like to flail about it at some point.
i finished flip flappers a while back, too, and i liked it, but it left me with a similar feeling (i'd also happily flail about that one).
alsoooooo new precure starts very soon!!! i'm looking forward to getting to know all the characters. :>
Heeeeeeyyy did you guys know that theres a digimon sequel currently coming out in a set of like.... Six OVAs? Because you should, and you should watch it if you like the original. Having recently watched the original sub, its really good and I want more people to suffer with me lol. both over the show itself and the waiting for the next installments bc its like every few months and im dying. Next one comes out Feb 25 tho so its like, a perfect time to jump in before the next one :D also also, if you must have dub, i think ive heard that a lot of the original english VAs were hired so like, thats really cool imo. First OVA is out as dub for sure, it got a theater release that i moped really hard about not going to, not sure about the rest.
Oh I watched flip flappers!
