In case you haven't heard, Samurai Pizza Cats is undergoing something of a revival this year. After being ignored for about 2 decades, this year it's finally gotten a DVD release in Japan, and a dual DVD release (the Saban dub and the original Japanese with subtitles) is slated for release in the US next year. Also two different companies are making toys, one having already released a Speedy figure with plans for Guido, Polly and Bad Bird, and another having announced a diecast Speedy with add-on armor/flight pack and a Supreme Catatonic.

So let's discuss this wonderful SD anthro mecha jidaigeki sentai anime.

Supposedly Capcom tried to get them in, but they weren't able to reach an agreement. Don't know what exactly the problem was, but if I had to guess it might have been copyright issues.

No, but it is by Gonzo, so it may or may not be better.

I haven't watched it yet. Apparently they cut the joys.

Claims it won't be like the original or the source material, goes on a weird tangent about how Japan doesn't have a tradition of strong characters in their fiction.


Meanwhile, it looks like the Ghost in the Shell live-action movie will be directed by the guy who made Snow White and the Huntsman, and written by the guy who did the pre-Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies. Yay.

Well, I mean, depends on the drugs. If Diavolo was handing off heroin or some shit to children, that is irredeemable because that shit will fuck you up and likely kill you sooner rather than later. But marijuana? Nah man.

aka "The Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer Guy." If you don't know what Biscuit Hammer is, it's a crazy seinen action series about a bunch of weirdos being given psychic powers and animal companions to fight a mage's golem army. They mostly use these powers to emulate kung fu movies and magical girl anime for their fighting styles. It's very silly, but good.

On the polar opposite of the spectrum is his newest series, Spirit Circle, which is about a pair of school kids who turn out to have many reincarnations worth of grudges against one another, which the girl there intends to put a decisive end to. It's not very far in at only 15 chapters, but each glimpse into their past lives has been quite melancholy, if not outright violent and destructive. It's FUCKING RAD.

Mizukami actually has quite a few works under his belt, and is known to work on multiple ones at a time. For example, along with Spirit Circle, I think he's still running Sengoku Youko, which I've not read personally but understand to be about Japanese mythology (there was a thread about it awhile ago but I can't find it) and buildings fight each other.

Whatever genre Lucifer & The Biscuit Hammer was halfway subverting, Sengoku Youko's basically the same thing for Inuyasha. I recommend it. Need to check Spirit circle out.

Inari Konkon got an anime this season. Loving the manga as much as I did, I was cautiously optimistic for it, but didn't expect much, since it isn't wildly popular. It's an incredibly sweet and heartwarming story, so it wouldn't need a massive budget anyway. But holy crap, I didn't expect this much quality and loving care. It's almost worth watching just for the scenery porn alone.
So, yeah, you guys should definitely check it out, if you need a little break from all the hotblooded action at times.

Man, they sure are skipping a lot in the first few episodes. I guess that's to be expected form a 1-cour series that won't ever expect a second season, so they're rushing thnigs towards the couple people are most interested in. Not that I mind. Uka X Touka is the cutest and has a way more interesting hook with the whole goddess loving a mortal and wanting to be a human.

Threads last for infinity on +4. Topics with moderate interest will dip below Page 0 and then get bumped up when something of interest comes along (or a spambot gets into them.) I'm sure we have threads that go all the way back to when we had to restart the board a few years ago somewhere...

SJ are going to need something to replace Naruto and Bleach soon.

I mean at the rate they are wrapping up their final arcs it'll only be another... ten years are so before they are over.

If we petition Japan to stop producing more Dragon Quest games, we might get Togashi to work steadily for enough time to get HunterxHunter in there. Dunno about the other slot. I don't think Naruto and Bleach will end at the exact same time, though. Ironically, Bleach has been "ending" for a much longer time period, but I feel as if Naruto is wrapping up things quicker.

I guess I'm starting to warm to Zvesda. It's nothing great, but it's getting a bit funnier and we MUST encourage new IP I suppose.

I'm still confused as to what the deal with the Russian codenames is though. They don't seem to just be random, both minions are just numbered members and the professor is "mind" so I'd assume that there's a reason for the others (well, VEHEPA might be just Kate's narcissism).

It's actually supposed to be a pretty common complaint for VN writers because of the way the Japanese PC market used to be (I'm given to understand that the growing base for regular games and non-porn VNs is changing this though).
>> No. 86685
Holy fuck Zvesda 3.

Also: the new Fate anime is going to have some kind of original content and HA is coming to the Vita.
