Over-Time has released the finale to Aoi Honoo, and its really good.
Shimamoto seems like such a bro.
Any hope for a S2?
I'm surprised that they got so much of that old footage, especially honoo's anime (which I assume was really Shimamoto's), can't believe he really did that himself
And that "no sound" for the daicon was clever move
These are full scans of the raw manga: http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=585229
You can even look through it and find the parts they adapted
Also this is funny http://www.gwern.net/docs/2002-notenki-memoirs#meeting-anno-yamaga-and-akai
>Okada was by far the biggest troublemaker on the set. One day, he was having it out with the rest of the anime staff, arguing about a scene in the climax. A signal fire is coming from a Powered Suit, and the smoke from the fire is supposed to turn into the Ide Gauge76. But Okada didn’t like it.
>“The Ide Gauge is just weak!” he exclaimed. “It’s got no impact, We should definitely have it form, like, a stylized version of a girl’s pussy! Now that would be impact! We need to do something that’s never been done before - otherwise, there’s no point in doing this at all!”
So that was his real idea.
I guess Anno would reconsider it later on.
Gurren lagann reference in my aoi honoo? Shimamoto confirmed for bro
It's the original.
Daicon III: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQjruwkyOaU
Daicon IV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nkc4eBCy3Sk
That's all anyone needs these days...
This guy is like a 4chan user.
I think it's already out.
This had lewd too.
It's really over
So, /a/, Tonko, Tsuda or Wonder Musume?
Yeah, this is a picture of Anno and Shimamoto from an interview included with vol 1 of Aoi Honoo.
Tsuda, every single time. Poor girl also had the saddest end. Wonder Musume was basically no one to begin with. Tonko was a dumb whore, like expected. Tsuda truly liked him and enjoyed her time with him, but he didn't pay enough attention when it was important and lost her. She was already gone, when he decided to go after her. And he decided to go after her last.
Best girl suffering like always. She had a great smile.
And this is them in their mid-20s. The actor they cast for Honoo really does look like Shimamoto back when he was young.
But girls must have long hair!
At least Tsuda wasn't, she genuinely liked him, enough to put up with his autistic episodes and even tried getting into his favourite series.
Best girl 10/10 would waifu any year, Moyuru is an idiot.
I wish Tsuda had gotten a happier ending than she did. Poor girl did nothing to deserve that shit.
Yeah, Tsuda had such a great personality.
Oh, wait, she didn't.
>girl has boyfriend
>what an obvious whore
When I realized >>114448057 was the last time she interacted with Honoo I felt really sad.
There was also this moment that was pretty harsh. She went through some bullshit.
Now I'm trying to imagine this live action.
It is you fag
Because it's not anime so most people don't know about it or try it
It's enjoyable, but it's not incredible or anything.
Honou is fun, but the B story of proto-GAINAX is the main attraction in my opinion.
Yeah, I literally teared up at the scene when Honoo began to throw away his precious manga tanks...
I watched the first two episodes then forgot about it.
Now I can't watch it with /a/.
I picked it up because I heard it was about mangaka and based on a true story.
>mfw I see Anno in episode 1
Going by what a normal person is, most people don't.
Look at Honoo. Aren't we, the weird ones, the one that already dream about a different world, a different life, exactly the ones with the potential of the most hot-bloodness?
Best show of the season!!!
No, here most people only give a shit about escapism and self indulgement, just like a bunch of useless drug addicts, and not about over the top humor, sci-fi, craftsmanship, and themes. Just like the third generation of otaku and very differently from the second (shimamoto's one) and the first generation (tomino's one).
I understand what you mean, but even in a mostly comedy centred series like this you can see a high level of escapism, a little different one the one now, but still escapism.
And we can easily imagine how reality was.
I go there all the time.
You're totally missing the point, reread my post.
And this >>114450950 tard is even worse.
I like how you can only answer with "but they were escapist idiot as well and they were obsessed with cute girls just like me!"
The point is that wasn't all. There were tons of other things. It's a macroscopic difference, but you are so used to escape from reality that you can ignore that easily, I guess.
I do, and it's not even a dream since i started doing it. Don't think even for a second that every anon is a deluded neckbeard that watch anime only for escapism.
I did boxe, i love to go fishing and have no problem to socialize, i watch anime solely out of passion like any other thing i do in life.
Anon sorry but every time i read post like yours it seems to me that you want to project your shitty life onto people you don't even know, just to feel a little better with yourself thinking "the others here are just losers like me".
50% are kids that after school come here to shitpost about waifu etc.
30% are really neckbeards that detached themselves from reality.
What remains is a mix of good posters, cross posters and shitposters for the sake of shitposting.
Right, we are all here a super cool tough succesful adults, gotta post about this on my facebook later.
Go fuck yourself you fucking cancer.
>hurrpa durrpa look mom i'm special snowflake
Nobody cares about you faggot, are you this retarded to think that because you are such a special everyone else do?
Do you even know where you are, fucking imbecile, do you have a brain damage or something?
Feels good knowing that everyone around me is a tasteless unwashed addict faggot except me, the undisputed superior genius with taste and knowledge and can appreciate true art.
So, how about that Aoi Honoo
>Don't think even for a second that every anon is a deluded neckbeard that watch anime only for escapism.
Right, because you being special idiot, means everyone else the same.
We have a thing for people like you, we call it, a fucking normalfa, and if you not notice it, you are minority.
>normie rubbing his good blog in my face
>being a prick
Not him, but I have always liked how people like you can be over-touchy and over-insecure but unbelievably arrogant at the same time. The magic of the internet, I guess.
He's in the Yamikin Ushijima-kun movies too.
I don't know if i sounded like a prick, but i shouldn't have blogged, what makes me come out and write stuff like that, it's reading about anons indulging in their insecureness instead of talking about anime and manga or just growing out of it.
Let's just return to the original argument.
He is an idiot for losing Tsuda.
And Wonder Masumi was nothing more than a short idealistic dream. He didn't left just because she had a boyfriend, Tonko had one for half the show. What truly shocked him was how little she actually cared about him in contrast to his delusions.
Let's not, at all
I want to see if his art's improved at all
I want a S2 to end with them producing the OVA, though
If it's fully translated I'm gonna go read it
Uh? I >>114452099 was talking about the guy I was replying to >>114451943.
You didn't blog anything, you just replyied to a guy to say that there are other kind of people here and that you think they are a somewhat consistent portion. Then some people just answered and some over-touchy idiots got mad, that's all.
So basically, what by him is translated? I know no official english things touch him for some reason, right? Kind of frustrating
Oh my god who cares, not anime manga or related media
>Oh my god who cares, not anime manga or related media
I wish all janitors that moot "employed" lately weren't as blindly new as you. There is a big difference between not topic related, not /a/ related and not anime related.
>didn't blog anything
>look i'm special you fags should realize that because i'm here suddenly /a/ being not populated by escapistic losers
Brining such topic to begin with was unecessary, but yet he also tell us cool story about how special he is.
He got what he was asked for.
>over-touchy idiots got mad
Nice projection, we are responding exactly like we supposed to, if you don't like it, you can always leave to a more proper places that suit over-touchy fags like you more.
Actually, when Shimamoto and Bang Ippongi were watching the show, they were worriedly tweeting about all those volumes too. Turns out they lent some of the props to the production (but the director had some replicas made)
As I said, He just replied to a guy and wrote that to make a point.
These guys got that and replied to his point
Instead You and the other over-touchy drama queens just got mad because your insecurity.
> if you don't like it
Don'ìt worry, I like it, your delusion and crazy nonsense are somewhat funny.
Except he never said anything about being a "special snowflake" himself and if anything he implied that people like you are pretty much. And /a/ has plenty of them. Take a look at the "waifu culture" that boomed, just so people can feel not only different, but different among friends, and ended up losing all of it's original simplistic goodness. There is a difference between enjoying watching tons of anime and being and absolute try-hard wannabe loser to fit in his delusional interpretations of /a/, like you.
But maybe if you want topic related discussion that much, you seem to actually really believe everything you say, so you can now shut up and actually try to think about some stuff in life. You are probably still pretty fucking young and don't have to be continue being stupid even in your later years. Just fucking take it as a possible advice and without going on how I am just trying too look mature in front of you. Sometimes people say stuff, because they do matter.
>He just replied to a guy and wrote that to make a point.
There's no point, he's a minority normalfag, he said poinltess stuff nobody asked for, and then blogged.
Cancer as it is, and so you are.
You need to stop projecting, you know.
/a/ is being populated by losers, it is a known fact, acting you are different is stupid, and you are only so far prving to be same shit if not worse, do you seriously think anyone would be insecure about it?
>Don'ìt worry, I like it, your delusion and crazy nonsense are somewhat funny.
Right, show us how much you don't care while being on the high ground.
>Tsuda was the only one who really liked him.
While this is true, is not like Tonko was a hypocrite or anything.
She appreciated and supported Honoo as well, the thing is that she felt like a big sister to him.
it happened in real life, too
>Osamu Tezuka78 couldn’t make it in time for the opening, but he joined everyone for the nighttime party at the hotel. During the celebrations, he heard some discussion about the opening anime and said he wanted to see it. So they scrambled around for the footage and showed it again, right there on the spot.
>I wasn’t there myself, but I heard that after Akai and Yamaga showed Mr. Tezuka the film, he commented, “Well, there certainly were a lot of characters in the film. A lot of characters… However, there were also some that weren’t in the film.” At first they couldn’t figure out what he was getting at, but then it suddenly hit them - they hadn’t used a single one of Tezuka’s characters in their film!
>There's no point,
He made a point, you can disagree or not. I disagree with him as well, but that doesn't mean that He wasn't making a point and just talking about himself.
>nobody asked for
He just replied to another to deny what he wrote. You can care about that or not, but that doesn't change the facts.
>Cancer as it is, and so you are.
Thankfully, unreasonable over-touchy drama queens like you make it a better place with their shitpost that just express angry insecurity and delusion and nothing more.
Basically, people like you are like a metastasis who believe to be an anticancer. That's pretty entertaining, I hope you will carry on.
> do you seriously think anyone would be insecure about it?
Very insecure and even more deluded, judging by your uninterrupted shitposting.
>you don't care
I have never wrote that I don't care. Are you sure that you don't have some huge reading reading comprehension problems as well? They could explain many things about your lack of logic and asininity.
Daily reminder that j-dramas are only watchable if there is a powerful source/script that prevents actors from making cute faces for too much time. You may find “similar otaku stuff” like “Densha Otoko” and “[email protected]” that is only good for making GIFs. If you want more, aim for something like “Tiger and Dragon”.
Is this one a pussy for you too?
On a related topic: why hasn't any Japanese owner of Daicon Laserdisc re-ripped it properly on a modern analogue capture hardware? All those Youtube "restorations" worked with a horrible DivX ;-) 3 rip.
For a thousand time, no. The author isn't even married.
In fact he said he knew some girls in collage, but wasn't close enough with any of them to come to his room or something. Tonko and Tsuda are pretty much fictional, so the viewers can enjoy some shipping and they do actually help the plot quite a bit.
Are you Japanese you fucktardshitcunt weeaboo cancerous fuckwit? No. Then you are not an otaku. Call yourself a nerd or something, if you want naming yourself so much, but of course to a weeaboo like you it doesn't sound as special, because there is nothing special about it to begin with it.
>He made a point
What was the point?
That he's a special snowflake?
And to prove it he described his cool life.
Well this ain't going anywhere, so
Is this your favorite words or something?
>That's pretty entertaining, I hope you will carry on.
The most entertaining fact is that you are being arrogant, when originally said something about being arrogant, you are literally projecting.
Anticancer? jokes on you, if /a/ would become a better place just by telling random faggots to fuck off, than everything would be more easy.
What I do is pretty much expressing my opinion, like it or not, this is "normal thing" to do here, while metastasis are people who brought something about their lives, something that has nothing to do with anime/manga, something that is not related to /a/.
Telling cancer to fuck off, is the only right thing to do, because there's been things that are allowed here and not allowed here, and this how it's being done, since forever.
And it's effective, the only one who would saying otherwise, probably someone who will be butthurt about it.
Now, you're next line going to be:"something something unreasonable over-touchy drama queen something something ".
What the fuck are you talking about?
I asked if the romance in the manga developed further and you responded that the author never married but why would that mean that the manga doesn't have a deeper romance?
And why are you so upset?
It honestly looks like you're the only ones shitposting to me.
Why do you think I'm trolling? Because I stated that I think marriage is stupid? So everyone that has an opinion different from yours is trolling now?
As a son of divorced parents I can tell you that I don't give a fuck whether my parents are married or not, I'd rather have them being together and having a healthy relationship.
This is you.
Real Mad Holy
He became the chief director of Jump in its golden era.
I wonder what happen to Tsuda after this, I hope she show up in the manga, her last meeting with Honoo is too sad.
There were suppose to be more of Char Mangaka? He just disappeared after a while, was hoping he would come graduate Honoo on achieving pro status.
This guy look so damn sympathetic and HOT BLOODED.
Would totally discussing mecha with him.
Fuck, I meant congratulate.
Ah, I see, thank you for the explanation. Can't wait for the BD then, more of Yano would be great to see.
Fuck man, that scene was really fucking heartwarming for me.
I'm a real baby when it comes to the whole Respect/acknowledgement-between-rivals thing. Especially in real life settings
Well Honoo did, and the fact that Anno finally acknowledged him,
and not necessarily as a rival, I guessin the end is really heartwarming IMO
Honoo clearly respected Anno, even if he won't admit it. And the fact that He earned Anno's respect in the end is what got me.
Sure, it was mostly Honoo's delusions. Anno to begin with is too busy being in his own little world for that. But he at least acknowledge him at the end, as a classmate who loves the anime and manga world and is aiming for it, just like him. He acknowledges his burning heart.
Just finished the last episode.
Still trying to get my exacts thought in order, but this was just so much concentrated excellent and greatness I'm out of words to describe my enjoyment and feelings towards it.
Time to enjoy my post-series depression.
I JUST WANNA WATCH IT WITH YOU GUYS
IS IT TOO MUCH TO FUCKING ASK
It's too late. We've already watched it all. It's all over now.
Don't blame me.
If you're craving more episodes now, watch Yoshihiko if you haven't already.
It's from the same director and has familiar actors.
They filmed the Moeyo Pen scene at Tetsuya Chiba's studio. (Why indeed)
