Perfect Blue is the best. Paprika is the most refined but lacks coherence (the power of love beating a man who has hypnotized all humanity is kind of stupid). Millenium actress gets way too lost in itself, and while charming, the fact that all of her movies follow the exact script of her life is silly. Never watched Tokyo Godfathers, though I doubt it'll be as compelling a story as Perfect Blue.
I know this is a joke, but come on, give me a reason.
You should seriously watch Tokyo Godfathers. Fantastically well written stoic, satirical comedy. And again it has some lovely passive-aggressive judgement on social issues in Japan.
Opening scene is fantastic.
Perfect Blue is the best.
Paprika was all tripping balls and made no sense.
Tokyo Godfathers is a shitty optimistic story.
Millennium Actress i don't even remember what was about, but chances are it is second best.
Paprika was just whacky visuals for the sake of whacky visuals. It's pretty, yeah, but it lacks any depth in plot or characters. Would be nice as a music video or something. Full length movie with a ham-fisted romance subplot? Not so much.
That guy was fucking fat, holy shit.
Millennium Actress obviously
Perfect Blue gets second place
Whilst we're on the subject, what did you guys make of this?
I liked most of it. However:
>those filler episodes
>that entire episode about an anime studio
>the weird radio shit
Maybe I haven't looked enough into it or understood everything.
>>that entire episode about an anime studio
Damn that episode was depressing.
I enjoyed the Suicide episode myself.
>tfw Dreaming Machine will never see the light of day.
On that note, anyone know where I can find the Making of Millennium Actress in English:
I suspect (and hope) it might be a feature on the DVD
It was interesting but it felt like the episode in the middle were somewhat unnecessary. The ending was kind of lame too.
Better than most generic shit these days but still could have been better.
I haven't seen Millennium Actress, but
Perfect Blue = Tokyo Godfathers > Paprika
While Paprika was visually well done and a very nice concept, I felt that it was lacking something.
I loved Paranoia Agent, even the episodes in the middle. The ending might have been better, but still, it was really good.
It's sad that such a creative mind like Kon is dead.
god fucking damn it
why do you remind me of this
>yfw kon probably storyboarded all of this for nothing.
>mfw i remember reading his letter the day he died
With my heart full of gratitude for everything good in the world, I'll put down my pen.
Now excuse me, I have to go.
It terms of how much I enjoyed them rather than how good they are:
>1.- Millenium Actress
The music is also perfect, Kon and Hirasawa are my dream animator/musician team
I feel I'm gonna cry.
>2.- Tokyo Godfathers
This whole movie is too goddamn fun.
It may be bullshit, it may have a ridiculous ending but it pushed all the right buttons for me, at least aesthetically speaking. I love it.
>4.- Perfect Blue
I liked it and it is probably better than most of these ones but I didn't like it as much as Paprika.
Also guys watch
it's some good shit.
