Re: Knight's & Magic

Well, the series is over. My thoughts...yeah, sorry but I just didn't care for it. There were way too many problems and not enough good stuff to balance it out. By the end, the Char's Counterattack reference/homage made me feel like facepalming rather than celebrating. Here's the breakdown of my iss...

The original anime is getting turned into a "director's cut" movie trilogy in anticipation of IV.

Re: Knight's & Magic

So is this just a case where the adaptation is bad? Because people seem really fond of this series, but the anime is just making so many missteps that it's very hard to enjoy.

Re: Knight's & Magic

Wow, this episode kind of made me hate Ernie. I mean, his obsession with robots was already pretty bad, but this week he acted like he cares more about machines than human beings. Also, that part where Eyepatch Badguy was expositing about Engineer Badguy may have been the clumsiest infodump I've eve...

Re: RPG Report?

What we're using is Big Eyes Small Mouth (aka BESM), a system designed to (in theory) let you recreate basically any kind of anime. In practice, though, there's a lot of potential for abuse and game-breaking, and it often comes down to house rules to patch the holes left behind by the creators and p...

Re: RPG Report?

And now we continue. I'm aware it's been a while; I got lazy and took my sweet time summarizing the last adventure, especially considering the third adventure is this coming weekend. But things to pick up and get more interesting this time around. --- Picking up from just about where we left off las...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Since the title of the next episode is "Knights and Dragon", I'm willing to bet it's the last episode of the season.

Halfway through the episode, my reaction to what happened to the Prince:

"What a profoundly stupid man."

Re: Gundam Wing HD - Opening Changed? Why?

Actually, that's how Wing's openings always were. For most of the run, both sequences used footage taken from the show and only switched to the higher quality animation before the theme song changeover (for JC) or before the end of the show (for RE).

Re: Knight's & Magic

I will say, I really appreciate that Dietrich has been an actual character with actual development; it seems like in any other show, the dude who panicked and got mech-jacked in the first couple of episodes would be nothing but a one-note joke character but he's actually shown real growth. But yeah,...

Re: RPG Report?

Well, not much response but I might as well post the first summary and see if it draws some attention. Anyway, before we begin, here's the Dramatis Personae: Erika Kadoya - My character. A Japanese-American girl with a cheerful personality, sunny outlook, and desire to be everybody's friend. She tak...

Re: Knight's & Magic

It makes sense that a fair bit of time is passing; just consider the fact that about five episodes ago we had the mech get stolen by the bad guys, and then this week it's been reverse-engineered and developed into an army of hundreds, if not more, mass-produced new units, new elite units for people ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

The open beta for Gundam Versus is currently up for download on the Playstation Store, but the beta doesn't start until the weekend. Better to grab it now while you have the opportunity.

Re: Knight's & Magic

I liked the fighting this episode, but the fact that this new enemy faction is just monolithically and almost cartoonishly evil makes them a little hard to take seriously.

RPG Report?

So a few weeks ago my brother started running a Magical Girl RPG inspired by his recently getting into more modern MG anime like Madoka Magica. Would people actually be interested in reading the recap summaries of the game, or is that not in peoples' wheelhouses around here?

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Maxi is getting Raider as well as the Phantom Gundam from Crossbone Gundam Ghost. I think it's already been confirmed that the Phantom is coming to Versus.

Re: Knight's & Magic

I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm being hyper-critical of this show, I really do want to like it but I'm not going to ignore its flaws. There are aspects I like, but at the moment the problems are weighing pretty heavily on it.
