For how good it was, the two Ef: series are almost never talked about today. Or maybe it was because I watched it 10 years ago, but it is a shame that’s it’s passed over for other anime at the time

Bee Train Thread anon 07/06/2022 (Wed) 16:24:02 No. 214 [Reply]
For the longest time I've been wanting to make a thread for Bee Train anime, so I've decided to finally get around to it. Kouchi Mashimo's "hospital for animators" is probably most well known for their "Girls With Guns" trilogy: Noir, Madlax, and El Cazador de la Bruja, but have several other lesser known series like Avenger, Tsubasa Chronicle, and the .hack series. Have you anons been watching any Bee Train anime lately? Do you have a favorite?

>>214 i've seen all three and noir is one of my favorite anime ever to exist for some reason even though it's not the most polished show around it has so much soul and atmosphere i love it, it influenced me in a big way. madlax was so bad it was hilarious but still a fun watch because i like to ponder themes that perhaps aren't there. el cazador de la bruja was ok but not as good as noir. in particular the noir bluray rips are just beautiful. these wide shots with the character in the center are likely influenced by john ford, since the director had admiration for him and it was ford's signature move of sorts.

OP here, I've been rewatching Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom lately. I'm almost finished with it, and I've been enjoying it much more now than the first time I watched it for some reason.

Looking back on it, it's crazy how popular Haruhiism used to be. I miss it.
It feels strange how stuff from the 2000s is considered retro now. I feel old.
>>230 I feel the same way, but it depends on the context. 2000s TV or music, for example, don't feel "retro" to me. But pre-Web 2.0 Internet culture does
>>230 I remember one time in 2010 when I was talking to a guy and he said "I like older anime, like Haruhi" I felt ancient, and I was in college at the time.
Probably because internet allows people to listen to music and watch stuff from a bunch of different eras. It doesn't feel retro because it never really went away. A lot of US TV series from the 90s and 2000s lasted forever too (CSI, NCIS etc). This is probably why people have this idea that today's content is 100% worse. We're always comparing today's shows with the classics. In some ways I miss the 2000s. If you came from the Middle East in those years were absolute hell but culturally stuff was much more sensible. When the internet was new there really wasn't a good idea for how people should use it. So people just made stuff up as they went along. Because big social media juggernauts didn't exist there was more leeway for filmmakers, animators, mangaka, or game designers. Stuff wasn't as mass market and corporations weren't surveying Twitter for opinions. It's hard imaging some of the stuff made back then getting the greenlight today. What does bug me is the way there is this culture of remembrance for things that happened in the 2000s (facebook, myspace emos) while other stuff has been memoryholed (e.g. 4chan antics, Iraq war). Flip phones, external computer speakers or RSS feeds were a thing everybody used but most ordinary people have completely forgotten about them.

Iyashikei Anime anon 05/26/2023 (Fri) 15:31:09 No. 144 [Reply]
Anime iyashikei anime fans here?
1 post omitted.
I liked Aria: the animation a lot. It really embodies the 2000s style of animation.
Binchou-tan is a really cute iyashikei anime from the 00s with short episodes, I have rewatched it many times. I downloaded the raws of the manga from Perfect Dark a long time ago but it doesn't have furigana so I couldn't read the moonrunes.
Aria and YKK are two of my favorite series

I really like Sketchbook ~full color's~, it's a really kind anime.
>>226 I ended up picking this up because of your post. I can't believe I put off watching this for so long; what a soothing anime. It's fun to hear a very young Hana Kanazawa too.

I still won't forget my introduction to lucky star. I was fooled by one of the seasons DVD covered with the comic book shop guys on it, thinking it was gonna be some awesome anime. I was pissed off at first but I loved it.
