Welcome to /ar/! ranchant Board owner 01/08/2022 (Sat) 08:02:52 No. 17 [Reply]
This board is for the discussion of retro anime and manga, generally keeping it pre-2000. This isn't a hard rule, but don't go posting seasonal stuff. Also, this is still a young board and site as a whole, so if you have any suggestions, put them in >>>/meta/. Please keep the global rules in mind, especially rule 3. Enjoy!

Been working out more now that I'm back home. Walking a few miles each morning, pull ups in the afternoon, and using an exercise bike at night. I need to torrent more /ar/ music so I can put together playlists...
>>1290 Nice job, dude. Been trying to lose weight myself, I live in 14 story apartment block and spend around an hour walking up and down them as exercise. It's the only exercise I do but I try to do it 3-4 times a week. I've been listening to an audiobook myself and find it super easy to digest while doing something as monotonous as stair climbing.
>>1291 Good stuff. Consistently is the key to forming healthy habits. A while back I listened to Duncan's history of Rome podcast whenever I worked out, but stopped somewhere in the late republic. Probably should get back into that.

Here's hoping this goes well

>>1275 Not sure why it took me like 6 hours to actually watch Project Eden, but I liked it quite a bit. It looked fantastic in widescreen and the Bluray rips looked stunning as well. Animation was really nice and some of the shots in this movie were incredible. Carson was a cool addition, he was basically Lupin and Space Cobra put together from what I find. I really enjoyed his character and having a third wheel for Kei and Yuri to play around with on their adventure is always fun. I didn't expect a Kei love story with him as well, honestly I always found their unluckiness in love to be something you sort of hear and not really see so it was cool to see it in a movie. I ESPECIALLY didn't expect Carson to live at the end, what an absolute fucking chad of a character. Interesting that half of the movie has them basically wearing rags after the bath scene as well. The fucking OST that repeated "Wattsman" when everyone started to say his name was really good, an incredible way to introduce that guy as the antagonist honestly. His motive was interesting as well, evolution that humans force instead of it naturally occurring. I was confused as to what he wanted Kei and Carson for though and what he extracted from them, but I guess it doesn't really matter in the end. Did anyone else feel the scene where Yuri and Kei are flying to their destination felt like the personalities changed. Kei should be dancing and having fun while Yuri should be angry and keeping everything together. I get they're both girls with fun personalities but this really felt more like a Kei moment than a Yuri one.
>>1275 The chase was easily the best part. But yeah production wise it's just really out of synch with some things. Looking at air dates it seems like it was in development the same time as the TV series so they probably weren't sure which one would take. In fact double checking it seemed to air right as the TV series was ending. So maybe that's why. Missnie was kind of a bitch. >>1276 >Interesting that half of the movie has them basically wearing rags after the bath scene as well. Yes. Funny that. Movie was fun. I especially like the battle suits at the end. Surprisingly it's rare you get to see them really tear a joint up on purpose.

Also, unrelated to Dirty Pair but have any of you anon's played the Mega Drive game Battle Mania? I played both of them back in 2018 and has a similar premise of two babes fucking shit up with guns. >>1276 Honestly, Flight 005 Conspiracy is also just fine. All the exposition on the ignol fluid, the mystery surrounding the flight and such was honestly quite boring and I really don't care that much. Not sure if it's burnout from watching so much Dirty Pair but by this point I was really finding it hard to focus on the damn OVA. I'm still not entirely sure why Kei was pretending to be distraught over Yuri's "death". She apparently knew it was fake but was making a scene so something would happen? Just seemed odd and all it did was get Danny killed. As usual, the later half with all the action is a lot more interesting than the first half, it's a shame the whole OVA couldn't have been about sneaking into this station and rescuing the family. Also, the last part with everyone running into escape pods and crashing ships into each other made me think of Spaceballs which was funny. Odd nitpick, but why didn't they use the Lovely Angel ship to rescue Dick? He most likely had oxygen for a while and was moving through space at a pretty slow rate. He'd go in a straight line and they could've easily found him after 10 minutes of searching. Even with the station about the explode, I'm sure they'd be able to find SOMETHING. Unless I'm ignorant of how fucked you become in the emptiness of space? It's weird how this OVA *felt* very 90s as well, I get it was probably made through 89, but for some reason it really had a 90s flair to it, in animation and look. Thank God I don't have epilepsy, this entire OVA had really weird flashing lights from explosions and alerts and such, was honestly grating on the eyes. Also fun to learn that Dirty Pair exists in the part of the universe that's under the Lohengramm Dynasty with how everything is in German for some reason. Wonder why this was the last official Dirty Pair thing with the original girls, was it because the economic bubble burst or were audiences bored with them? >>1278 >Looking at air dates it seems like it was in development the same time as the TV series

Eat Man anon 05/09/2022 (Mon) 08:53:57 No. 1263 [Reply]
Trigun, but the storytelling is kino's journey, the MC is kirby, and the women come and go as often as they do in Space Pirate Cobra. Anyone else really enjoy Eat Man? Is the manga worth a read?
>>1263 what does he eat?
>>1271 what doesn't he eat
>>1263 I remember this being advertised kinda alot back when it came out but nothing since. Never saw it so maybe ill put it on my list of stuff ill get around to eventually.

I've been watching this anime. So far it's a simple but well done story. Due it's age it lacks in animation sequences, but it more than makes up for it with Dezaki's great directing. And the artstyle is really charming.

>>1253 I feel like Oscar doesn't get as much focus as she should. Atleast compared to Antoinette or Madame du Berry, but she's likeable in the small roles she plays.

>>1253 The rivalry of Antoinette and du Berry is a petty and nonsensical one, but it does a good job at making you feel for their positions. It's about the problems of the aristocracy, so it's not that relatable. Yet I didn't get bored.
>>1255 This was the episode that really made me interested in the show. I remember finding Episode 1-3 to be REALLY boring and it took me around 2 weeks to even get through them, but once episode 4 hit and the whole rivalry between the two occurred over the new few episodes I was hooked on the show, and finished the whole thing in around 2 weeks. This was the show that really made me notice that I really love all the thing Dezaki directs (even if he didn't start doing it until halfway) and tried to watch everything I could that had his direction, even if he didn't write the source material. Somehow, he was always drawn to the greatest shows.

>>1254 More focus on Oscar comes towards the end, when she is finally called to make personal and no longer subordinate choices. She will have to deal with a lot of things at the height of the most delicate moment in France's history. That's when her character truly shines. I loved the entire cast, this series never got me bored even when Oscar wasn't directly involved. Observing a reinterpretation of real historical events in a shoujo-esque narrative and aesthetic by Ikeda first and then with Dezaki's touch is a fascinating experience.
