I was lucky enough to get a recipient for /ss/ who apparently is as obsessed with Tatami Galaxy as I am. I'm having a lot of fun working on their gift.
I don't care if this is true, it's better than having a dozen Amagi threads at the same time.
>it's better than having a dozen (think, think, what's popular and has cute girls right now, bonus points if it's kyoani, oh, right, amagi, yeah, that'll hook 'em, oh boy here I go) threads at the same time
Shinsekai Yori is trash though, obscurantism over reductionism is always bad, ostentatious subplots and shallow characters. Definitely among the most overrated anime of the decade. Tatami Galaxy is unquestionably the best original anime of the last 4 years.
if it isnt, im sorry but youre fucking retarded.
Make sure you post it somewhere when you're done. There needs to be more Tatami Galaxy art.
Mind Game is fucking amazing.
Kaiba is just... I dunno, kinda boring. it has a great Tezuka-esque art style but I couldn't get all that emotionally involved in it. I honestly had more fun with the episodic storytelling in Casshern Sins than the stuff in Kaiba.
> SSY good
Half the time its got a decent plot. The other half its criminally boring. Its way too predictable, and it looks like gutter trash. It should have been half the length and they should have hired someone for art director who wasn't a total pos.
So tell me, /a/. Are you lucky enough to have an Ozu in your life?
Mindgame is my favorite of the bunch and possibly Yausa's magnum opus.
In my mind Mind Game > Tatami Galaxy > Ping Pong = Kemonozume > Kaiba with the caveat that Kaiba at it best blows everything but Mind Game out of the water.
It's been 14 years and nothing has topped this.
The first episode most definitely; there was a quality of kinetic frenzy and violence to the animation that just kills me. Kaiba was at its strongest when it embraced an episodic format, through the first 7 episodes or so. Its been a few years but I just remember the world building blowing me away in a fashion that hasn't been replicated in anime since.
It works both ways like that. Both the good and bad are mutual; you harass each other but also share in the good times.
I had pretty much that exact relationship with my college best friend - put me through no end of grief, but if you asked her about it you'd hear endless stories of all the trouble she claimed I'd caused.
It's been five years and nothing has topped this.
It's been 1984 years, and nothing has topped this.
How would you rate all the Yuasa anime that you've seen, /a/?
Also, list the stuff you haven't seen yet.
>Also, list the stuff you haven't seen yet.
Well, if any.
Tatami Galaxy 10/10
Ping Ping 9/10
Mind game I really want to watch it again while stoned/10
But anon, There's nothing rose colored that exists in this world.
Worst part is looking back on the shitty life I lead and finding that all my memories have become rose colored ;_;
>Shinsekai Yori topped it
I prefer TTG but Shinsekai Yori is pretty high up there as well. Amazing atmosphere, OST, storytelling, interesting and likeable protagonist, nice background visuals, some great horror moments. 9/10
Tatami Galaxy 10/10
Ping Pong 9/10
I tried Kaiba but couldn't really get into it, I'll have to give it another go sometime.
Also haven't seen Kemonozume yet.
I dropped out of university to become a NEET so no
It's moreso that it was so abstract and unlike anything else I've ever seen that I don't really know if I could bring myself to give it a rating.
Don't get me wrong, I quite enjoyed it. Heck if anything it might have hit a little too close to home in some parts. I was incredibly depressed when I first watched it, So the part where the old man explains the things that give him happiness in the whales belly really changed my perspective on things.
watch Mind Game instead of Kaiba. and note that it slows down significantly after a certain plot development and this bothers some people; if you're expecting it though, it shouldn't be an issue.
I'm a neet with anxiety preventing me going to college or even certain environments for getting work (inductions). I hate my life, so I think I already had my rose coloured life in HS.
it was one of my first anime movies and it wasn't that bizarre; it wasn't even much more 'out there' than something like FLCL in that regard. just went a little more nuts with the visuals and had less pretty designs.
the story was also very basic and had a message that's been delivered many times before; it just felt extremely sincere and inspiring here because you could tell Nishi's story was a very personal one (reminder that the manga author is named Robin Nishi)
yeah, I'm not even entirely sure why I posted that or how I managed to misunderstand your post so badly.
it's funny how people credit "Yuasa" for the visuals when so much of its appeal comes from the manga.
I wish someone would fully scan it.
as far as the designs go it looks like they only significantly changed the female character designs (which were kinda meh in the original to be honest).
all the funny cartoony appeal of the male characters was there in the original work.
