Anime Cels 01/31/2022 (Mon) 21:53:02 No. 1109 [Reply]
Anyone here collect anime cels? Or dougas/gengas? My collection is pretty small so far, pic related is my cel and douga of Yuumura Kirika from Noir. I'm actually looking for a good UV-blocking frame for it, anyone know of a good one that's about the needed size? (my douga measured to be about 10.5x9.5 so I'm guessing the cel is about the same)

>>1138 I don't get how a humanoid cockroach is with garish neon colored hair is supposed to be sexy. Or why you'd want a war story that tries to be serious to look and sound like ecchi in the first place.
>>1138 It's been awhile since I watched gunbuster. IIRC the series had lots of hot girls and no nudity right? So he's got some secret forbidden nipples here?

>>1265 >no nudity Lmao, there's tons of nudity. One of the main actions done while in the Gunbuster is ripping the clothing off the chest exposing the breasts of the main character all the time. I honestly can't remember why this was done though. Hell, I think one of the LD even had a scene that showed Noriko's hairy bush.
>>1266 >I honestly can't remember why this was done though. It's at the very end, when Noriko has to rip out one of Gunbuster's engine cores to jump-start the Black Hole Bomb and save the human race. The shirt ripping was to approximate ripping Gunbuster's chest armor off. (and Gainax are all pervs)

>>1269 I've always wondered if that's in reference to Getter Robo, though knowing Anno it probably is.

>>1080 4 months late, but I might as well respond for some activity (since I just saw this reply now). >I feel like saying there's a "nothing new" feeling about Slayers in 2022 is like saying there's a "nothing new" feeling about Seinfeld in 2022. I didn't say that about Slayers in general, I said that about Try specifically. I enjoyed Slayers but found Try to be lackluster because Next pretty much created a scenario where the stakes were so high and Lina was incredibly close to breaking point that it was actually very satisfying to watch and see how it would end up. Try on the other-hand felt like something that should've happened *before* Next. Lina is even more stupidly powerful than before and with an apparent God inside her that she supposedly call when she is close to complete defeat just means that nothing can defeat her. I enjoyed Slayers and Next a lot. It was Try that I thought wasn't as good.
>>1078 Did the tape even come with subtitles or were you literally just watching Slayers in moonspeak?

>>1083 How similar is this to Slayers anyhow? It's another one of those 90s anime I wanted to give a watch.

>>1084 Couldn't tell you, haven't watched more than 10 minutes into the first episode for Slayers. Been meaning to get around to actually starting the series. If you ever do give Tenchi Muyo a watch though, definitely start with the first two Ryo-Ohki OVAs, and if you end up liking those check out the TV series. Character backgrounds and overarching plot are different for the two OVAs and the show but if you're just interested in great character interactions there's plenty of that to go around.

if reinhard is supposedly hitler, then would that make oberstien like von blomberg or himmler? Because I see him as more of a dirlewanger type figure. Also use this thread to talk about the '88 ova, because I need to catch up on that shit

Reinhard is German Napoleon what are you even talking about Rudolf Goldenbaum is the blatant Hitler analogue
>>1104 I'm basically inserting the characters into WWII officials but your analogy makes way more sense lol would rubinsky be herzl?
>>1104 Echoing this. Reinhard is space Napoleon and the Reich is the Old Regime. Reinhard / Kircheis are also a classic Alexander / Hephaestion dynamic.
>>1106 Correct. You can even pull the Alexander comparison further with how he mysteriously dies at a young age shortly after consolidating his empire, and his admirals mirroring the Diadochi (though Reinhard at least managed to get an heir so I can only assume it didn't all fall apart after the conclusion).
the way I see it, rudolf and reinhard represent both sides of idealist figures like hitler held. One side is textbook socialist or dictatorship that leans towards ideologies that fall under that term like fascism and use brute means like state-enforced eugenic policies that're egoist-like and come off as masquerading ethno-nationalism while the other is more amenable and meritocratic as opposed to fully nepotistic and such. The other side still has pride for it's nation but less hyper-traditionalist and more through a genuine altruistic love for it's countrymen even if policies or decisions are still expedient in some occasions (westerland massacre lol). Sort of the same contrast between wen-li's minarchist views juxtaposed with the bourgeoisie vs proletariat-oriented side of democracy. It's like a thematic hitler-like aristocracy vs a fdr-like democrstic-republic but yeah reinhard is clearly bonapartist. There are instances where he's pushed into coming off as a braunschweig-like machiavellianistic narcissist (too exaggerated I know) like vermillion and the reuenthal rebellion.

Are we really supposed to believe that hardened soldiers are going to defy their superior officers, whom they've been conditioned to fear all their lives, to defect to an enemy they've been conditioned to hate all their lives, just for the sake of some shitty pop songs? That would be like the Norks or Talibans defecting to the United States in mass because of Taylor Swift. And why would anyone in that situation even give a shit about gay idol drama anyway? They're supposed to be fighting for their lives, stranded in the outer solar system millions of the nearest supply base, and yet they have not only the available resources but also the audience for this garbage? Or that the chief archivist whose supposedly spent his entire life studying combat footage, wouldn't notice that a goddamn martial arts movie was clearly faked? Actually zentradi in general seem pretty dim, the infiltration team is able to speak perfect Japanese with no effort, but somehow remain clueless about every other aspect of Terran culture. They really should have been caught right away, especially since they acted like total buffoons and Hayase actually saw them in the miclone chambers. The way they handle romance was also pretty dumb. At most civilian workplaces its frowned upon for officers to engage in relationships, let alone in the military. And then there's the whole romance between Max and Milia. "I tried to kill you an hour ago, let's get married!"Yeah, right. How is this garbage considered a classic in any way? My eight year old sister could come up with a better mecha show.

>>1090 Well in Gundam it's because most Newtypes are kids and therefore bratty shits, but at the same time they are all the superiors can rely on, so they can't really just expel newtypes for being shits.
The Misa Romance (before the terrible coda episodes) is the second best thing SDF Macross has going for it. Nothing too contrived. Nice and naturalistic. A counterpoint to some of the idolshit you're crying about. Maturity is wanting to fuck your coworkers, not you idol. But the best thing OG Macross has is Sleggar done right.
>>1085 UC Gundam will always be the better series

Dezaki anon 08/04/2022 (Thu) 12:36:36 No. 1018 [Reply]
Thread dedicated to the great Osamu Dezaki. Starting his career notably as an animator for Astro Boy, Dezaki made his claim after directing the Ashita no Joe anime. In it he defined much of what would become his signature style, which he would continue to develop throughout his future works. Many aspects of his style became defining tropes of anime. For example, his famous freeze frame technique, known as a postcard memory (pics related) has become a staple of anime. If you want more examples of tropes he started I recommend watching Ashita no Joe. IPs he has directed include: Golgo 13, Black Jack, Space Cobra, Lupin III, Aim for the Ace, Moomin, The Roses of Versailles, and more. Without Dezaki the golden age of anime, that this board relates to, would not have existed as it did.

>>1032 Oh, I see. That makes it simple then. I really digged the artstyle

Just finished Black Jack fucking amazing. To be honest I will always pegged Dezaki as a hack fraud (maybe too strong a word) who we pretend it was good despite some very obvious amateurish qualities to his work. For example the sound design where he would just play the main theme at random intervals in the episode and it gets really annoying after a while, or the awkward dramatic timings with an episode having multiple climaxes and awkawrd cuts and scenes not flowing together well. I tolerated it in Joe because of the source material and Cobra is light hearted fun, but it was hard to stomach on shows that tried to be serious. But I am glad to report that there's none of that in Black Jack, this is Dezaki perfected, everything at the utmost professional standard, excellent drama with a great sense of pacing and every scene plays together well, all accompanied by some of the best art you'll see in anime. Highly recommend for all Dezaki fans
I figure this is a decent thread for this. I finished Joe 2 the other day, and I've been thinking about it a bit. What do you think of the ending? At first I was a bit disappointed, but after thinking about it, it's probably the best possible ending.
>>1035 It's the only way it could've ended for me. Hey hey hey blues....
>>1035 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLzj22NnvVg Was hoping to see Joe find completion, but honestly I think it was the only completion a character like him could get. It's kind of sad I think after Rikishi's death he was suicidal and remained that way.

>>1011 A real shame, I remember watching Harlock back in 2018 and it was the oldest anime I had ever watched up until then. I actually wanted to watch Cosmo Warrior Zero but was told to watch the original Harlock instead. I forced my way through 6 episodes a day so I could finish it in a week and it was tough but I somehow did it. I liked it even if I remember next to nothing about it, webm related was my favourite scene just for how Harlock handled that situation. I saw The Cockpit about a year later and thought it was alright, the first episode with the nazi trying to decide if he should do the right thing but betray his country was a cool idea, the second episode was somewhat funny because the MC wanted to die so bad and it would've been interesting if he didn't go through with it. The third episode was alright but a bit boring I found. I should really watch GE999 one of these days but the 113 episode count really does put me off, I would just have to hope it catches my attention early on so I can power through it. Wonder who will sadly be next, so many old mangaka and directors in their 70s and 80s these days.
