It probably had the most memorable sounds all around of any show in years.

>>138562940
It was fine, you're probably just retarded. It was however easily the weakest of Ikuhara's work, but that's hardly conflatable with it being bad.

I honestly don't think anyof ikuharas stuff is very good. Lots of it is good looking or fascinating but it always seems more like an art exhibit than an anime if that makes sense.

I found it surprisingly good.

Even if it wasn't anywhere near as good as Penguindrum or Utena, this >>138563262 still applies, so no.

After watching Suspiria, it was a lot clearer what Ikuhara was going for.
He should wait at least 5 years before his next work.

>>138562940

It has Ikuhara's standard for carrying a message within his shows, but the show itself was actually really boring and most of the characters sucked, so I'd say I was ultimately pretty ambivalent about it.

If it were 26 episodes I guarantee it would have been great though.

I highly recommend either watching or reading "Night on the Galactic Railroad" for Penguindrum to make sense.

"After the Quake" also helps, but is optional.

The show had plenty of potential, but it was ultimately mediocre.
You could tell Ikuni had plenty of ideas he wanted to develop in this show, but given it was 1-cour, it all fell grotesquely rushed, especially Kureha and Ginko's relationship which was the main focus of the show.

There were 2 things I could conclude from YKA. The first is something MPD had already made clear, Ikuni is a great director, but he shouldn't write. He really needs to find a good writer, and he should limit himself to directing. Second, he's a 90s director through and through. He shouldn't direct a 1-cour show again. He should work with 2-cour at least, and even then, I would say he's better off with more episodes, since even in MPD (a 2-cour shows), plenty of ideas seemed to have been underdeveloped, or simply never developed at all.

As far as YKA is concerned, the best thing about it was Mitsuko in my opinion. Hell, I loved the work Aoi Yuuki did on her. It was spectacular.

Gave it the three episode rule and then dropped it.

I really have no idea why some people seemed to like it.
>>
>>138562940
It was pretty bad yeah
>>
I think the only thing I really liked was the ost and Kubrick references. It was "fun" which in this case isn't really a praise. I admit part of my disliking was probably the tryhard symbolism fags who were trying to treat it as a 3deep5u masterpiece since the first episode. As a series it was pretty mediocre with great sound direction, that's about it.
>>
It was quite unbearable, gao gao~
>>
>>138578819
That pun made me a little kumatose
>>
>>138578585
But there was a shitload of symbolism everywhere, especially in the script. Not that that alone makes it DEEP or anything, it wasn't that difficult to dig out the themes, but it adds a lot of fun to watching and trying to figure out what everything means, even if it's only "lol bears" in end.
>>
>>138580872
Not that anon but that sounds shallow as fuck
>>
>>138574516
I watched Night on the Galactic Railroad and it made Penguindrum to look even worse
>>
>>138573649
She will die, right? I remember prefering her to the main girl or the bears but when she go EVILLL I drop it due to disappointment. Will she be important later on or she will be disposed in early eps? I might pick it up again if it is the former.
>>
>>138581015
What the fuck are you even talking about?
>>
I only watched the first two episodes, so I'm not an authority.

Can anyone explain to me what the point was? Why lesbian bears? Why did the guy that made Utena make lesbian bears?

Was there some kind of deeper meaning to it?
>>
>>138581054
The character in that picture is the only one I like from the whole cast and I dropped the series since I realised that she will be killed off sooner or later.
>>
>>138581092
I don't know about a deeper meaning by I do know it made my heart go doki doki.
>>
>>138580872
It's just that pretty much any series out there has "themes" and quite many "symbolism". Granted, the show was trying to tell something, but that in itself doesn't make it outstanding. And what I'm talking with 3deep5u faggots was when there was iirc some shit about "technological advancement" even on the first episode based on like two frames even though it was never even in lines with the themes of the show, but there must be deep symbolism because Ikuhara is a deep writer!

So in conclusion as I said it was a "fun" series but my autism cannot take the people who treat it as godsend masterpiece because it's made by Ikuhara. Naturally criticizing autists isn't legitimate criticism towards the show itself.

Is this as fun as Penguindrum?

I marathon Penguindrum in 2-3 days and drop this around ep 3 so I guess there is some different.
>>
>>138581519

I'd say this is just about the worst place to drop it, the first three episodes pretty much follow the exact same format, it get's A LOT better when it stops being bear kill of the week.

Funny, I think exactly the opposite.

>>
>>138571042
I DO NOT GET IT.
WHAT IS THIS SUPPOSED TO IMPLY?
>>
Can someone explain to me the appeal of Ikuhara's symbolism?
I watched both Utena and Penguindrum, and judge them as good (not great), but found the symbolism to be more annoying than anything, almost detracting at some points (I also tried reading about them after completing them).
I want to be upfront and say that I really like NGE and it's strange to me that often NGE's symbolism is described as unnecessary by the same users who then praise Ikuhara's symbolism.
I don't think NGE's symbolism to be deep or whatever, but I found it intriguing and cool, while I found Penguindrum's and Utena to be pretty meh.
I don't want to turn this in a NGE vs Utena /Penguindrum, I'm just looking for explanations.
>>
>>138592079
Because Anno said the NGE symbolism was just to be fake deep himself.

>>138592472
He said that sentence about it sounding complicated, but I don't remember anyone at Gainax saying the elements of symbolism were trying to be deep, but trying to be cool/exotic (to the jap audience).
He/they were quite upfront about it.
I like Eva for the characters, interaction and psychology, and I don't think the symbolism is anything other than a background.
It seems to me that Eva makes perfect sense without the symbolism aspects, while I can't make sense of Ikuhara's work without it.
>>
>>138575312

She's the one that didn't. I did say most, after all.
