Aku no Hana 07

First Comment:


It’s terribly cute that Saeki is reading Flowers of Evil just then.  I mean, what a coincidence.  Or is it?  Did she hear the doorbell, figure that there was a decent chance her new beau had arrived, and picked up the book just in case?  It’s possible…

Wow, so Saeki’s stated reason for dating Kasuga is…that there’s a lot of stuff he knows that the others don’t.  She might be a nerd-fetishist, who knows??

More on the Harlock Film Trailer

•May 11, 2013 • 83 Comments

So, if you don’t know about this, read the updated scoop [here].  Epic wardrobe malfunction, and just before Cannes to boot, what an awful coincidence 😉

Anyway, I refuse to read the script so please if you did read it don’t comment on it here.

However, I do want to bring up some more things from the super trailer, and I should start it off by asking once more: Does anyone have any info on the song??  My first thought was Linkin Park (and several others have suspected the same) but I’m not an expert on this group or others that sound similar so I don’t know..

Evangelion 3.0: (Sometimes) You Should Not Redo

•May 4, 2013 • 22 Comments

I’ll open this brief impressions post with a shameless, flagrant notice, and that is that I reserve the right to totally change my opinion at some later date.  That’s how much respect I have for Anno’s vision.  Is that clear?  OK, here we go then.

Aku no Hana 02

By the way, I’m also watching Suisei no Gargantia and Shingeki no Kyojin (since when did people stop translating anime titles?!) and enjoying both, though that Mikasa character annoys me for some reason.  But definitely my favorite is this Aku no Hana thing!!  Yesterday I took a peek at the manga and saw how different the art was, which kind of explains why so many fans are exasperated.  It’s very different, huh.  I guess it would mess me up to if I was a fan of the manga and then was confronted with this~  Anyways, I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT THE MANGA M’KAY?


Visually I’m reminded of Kiriko Nananan, and I don’t mean anything deeper by that statement, so just take it at face value (I like Nananan).  And then all of the ambient sound reminds me of stuff like Ghost Hound.

[Here’s the second part of the interview.  I was originally going to make it only a two-parter, but I don’t have time to finish the whole thing just yet so it’s best if I just publish this now and then the end a little later.  By the way, the section titles are not mine.  They’re in the original.]
