>>122448333
Paradigm City resets because of Angel. Nothing existed before those 40 years in Paradigm City because that's when it resets/is reborn. The point of the show is that the characters slowly come to grasp about their own existence and roles. They're actors and yet they have freedom. The Big O is a show and not real life, hence the whole tv station and Angel Rosewater watching the events unfold

Aside from the actual robots, no. They don't grow old because reality keeps being reset.
>>
>>122448545
It's a show. The "director" Angel Rosewater resets what happens whenever the events of Paradigm City unfold in a way that she doesn't want (such as Roger falling in love with Dorothy and rejecting her)

The Bigs are there because they're there. The memories of the show are snippets from the past Paradigms

The dub is much better than the japs. The second season of the anime was funded by CN, an Americna company so it's pretty much an American anime. Plus, Dorothy's voice actor is much better and captures the android-equeness of Dorothy. Stop acting like a weab and watch it in English.

Big O is better than Eva, because it's not ignorant enough to tackle mutiple philosophical questions that are far beyond it.
Big O's got its nice ideas and generally sticks with them.

Big O didn't have the right amount of action.
Big O had too much action.
THAT is one of its biggest flaw.
Big O should have shown up every 2-3 episodes but have longer fights rather than all these little ones every episode.
Every episode had to tie its plot to robot fights, character development and the expansion of the world.
With Big O's very out there plot, eccentric characters and mysterious world, it's too much all in one episode.
Would have been better if there were episodes that concentrated on each one individually, I think.

But I don't think I know how to fix Big O
I just know it needs fixing.
There's one of the best series ever in there some where.
Too bad it was mishandled by essentially everyone.
>>
>>122456721
I think it could've have more innovative action, which it did at times - like the one ep. where Roger faces the apparition/ghost and comes up with an idea to beat it. The show could've stayed as a VotW while slow progressing to the big finale since then it would've allowed more time for Roger and Dorothy to develop their relationship.
>>
I've yet to watch an anime that has managed to surpass Big O's setting and OST.

Seriously goddamn everything about the setting I love. And that fucking underground area holy shit.

THE MYSTERY WAS SORT OF REVEALED IN THE COMPANION ART BOOKS

THERE WAS A FUCK HUGE SET OF MACHINERY BENEATH THE CITY THAT BUILT A PARADIGM CITY LIKE A MANUFACTURING LINE

VENUS REPRESENTS THE CONSCIOUS ERASING OF MEMORIES

AFTER VENUS ERASED ALL THE MEMORIES, THE CITY WOULD BE DESTROYED

AND THEN ANOTHER CITY WOULD COME UP THROUGH THE GROUND

REPEAT UNTIL CLONED TOMATOES TASTE LIKE THE ORIGINAL

ULTIMATELY THE POINT OF THE SHOW IS THAT MEMORIES DON'T MATTER

ALL THAT MATTERS IS THE PRESENT AND THE TIME YOU HAVE THEN AND THERE

THE PAST IS IRRELEVANT

SOMETHING HAPPENED 40 YEARS AGO IT WAS PROBABLY BAD BUT ULTIMATELY WHAT DOES IT REALLY MATTER WHETHER OR NOT YOU KNOW

IT JUST HOLDS YOU BACK FROM CHASING THE FUTURE

Big O is the only anime besides Bebop and Black Lagoon that I actively recommend the dub over the sub.

It's also the only anime with a "confusing" ending that I understood immediately and still don't understand how other people don't get it
>>
>>122458402
what's your take on it, buddy?
>>
>>122458420
The "war" is a set of falsely implanted memories. The Deuses and domes represent the previous society. The Deuses weren't supposed to be uncovered however which causes things to get out of hand. After things start going too far to shit; Venus reactivates to rewind the world back into its normative state like one giant scientific experiment.
I'm still not sure who the big puppetmaster is, but I suspect it was intended to be season 3's plot and is completely irrelevant currently

That's almost exactly how it went. Season 1 was produced in Japan and ended in the middle of a battle. It wasn't popular in Japan, but it was popular with western audiences, especially the U.S so CN funded it for season 2. The show was popular on CN/Toonami and CN were going to make a season 3 so they asked the writers to not use the ending they had in mind and to use an ambiguous open-ended one to give them room for a season 3. But season 3 never happen because DVD sales weren't great and so CN gave up on producing season 3 and left it as is. That's why I hate people who defend the anime ending because it wasn't even the best choice out of the possible endings the writers/producers had in mind.

It also explains why everything becomes 2deep4u by season 2 since CN guys had some say in the production of season 2 and told them to reveal some if not most of the mystery behind the show - which I believe was a bad mistake since it progressed the story too fast.

In conclusion, I hope that CN/Adult Swim changes their mind and give us at least an OVA to finish off that shit ending we got since they own the rights to season 2 and could theoretically make an OVA or season 3. Or maybe a reboot of the series that goes by the vision of Katayama would be fine.

I have no problem with an artist defining his work. People can still interpret different meaning out of it.

> People can still interpret different meaning out of it.
>I see the artist's/writer's input or explanation of their work as factual because they're the ones who created it in the first place.
Fair enough.
I'm not saying my view is right or yours is wrong, because all that should matter is evidence and whether you can prove your claims.
But I'm going to continue arguing for no reason.

So a film, show, play, painting, whatever, is forever tied to the authors work?
Whatever they say goes?
I don't believe that.
An authors claims are evidence on the pile and nothing more.

I'm going to bring up the film, A Better Tomorrow 2 (very artistic, I know).
Tsui Hark (writer, producer) and John Woo (writer, director) both make this movie.
Hark pushes more drama.
Woo pushes more action.
The full movie is four hours long and it has to be cut down.
Both men make their own cuts and make radically different movies.
Both disliked each others film.
To compromise they give the footage to an independent editor and they make a film that goes halfway between both men.
Both men dislike this edit but it goes to theatres with both unhappy.
Who is the "creator" in that aspect?

Also, is Chiaki more creator than Katayama?
What if they have their own individual opinions and merely came to compromise?
Which one is then right?
>>
>>122460096
In that case, there's more room for interpretation but if they both come to a consensus to what their creation is about, then that's the de facto explanation

Getting this to fit the filesize limit was a pain in the ass, I hope it didn't turn out too crappy.

This is great, anon.

Thanks, I'm surprised it didn't end up as a blurry mess.

I wouldn't say the worst, but it's definitely a little drop in quality compared to season 1.

>>122440007
schwartzwald was so fucking right, the everything he said was so true and it seemed like so much bullshit

Schwartzwald>Beck>>>>Alan Gabriel>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Alex Rosewater

>>122463849
>putting that shitty-ass excuse for a villain gabriel anywhere but the absolute bottom
>>
>>122463759
I would say one of the worst

The animation, the story, the logic all gets thrown out the window.

It went from amazing to shit.

I could also be salty because the first and last episode of season 2 are some of the worst anime I've ever seen.
>>
>>122464036
Alex Rosewater is worse because at least gabriel could do something cool

Both were fags, alex was worse
>>
>>122463602
They said foreigners period. It just doesn't make sense to treat French like exotic foreigners when you have japs with an entirely different culture living inside your city
>>
>>122446963
Stoning is probably one of the best songs in anime.

Man, can you imagine how hype it would be to make that?
>>
>>122464223
I think the point of big O is foreigners are all evil and they should all be killed
>>
>>122464113
I don't think you've seen much anime then

Does Sahashi still make god-tier music like this? I only know his works from Big O and Gundam

There we a bunch of crappy characters introduced in season 2, but O'Reilly wasn't one of them.
>>
>>122464113
I think you should rewatch it and pay extra attention. The ending is pretty shit, I'll give you that

>>122466981
But then Dorothy wouldn't be special

It doesn't matter as long as she's special to you.
