This is how you do a romance anime.
Fast paced. No bullshit.
Daily reminder Ozu wasn't as much a cunt as Watashi imagined.
Actually I can't think of a single thing Ozu did to Watashi that didn't at least end up as a fortunate accident. Maybe he meant for that to?
Except when he stole Atashi's plane I guess
How would you describe Tatami Galaxy to a friend?
Yeah I've watched that already, it was also nice.
I wouldn't describe it too much because the mindfuck is what made it so good to me.
At the second episode I had no idea wtf was happening
Have you ever felt unsure of your life or your goals/direction in it? Then yes. I think thats part of the reason why so many people remember it fondly. Its relatable on an almost universal level.
Science Saru is producing a new movie, the name of which slipped my mind (Yoru something), with the Tatami Galaxy staff based on a novel by the same author set before and in the same universe.
>tfw my life is doing nothing & stuck in my room until the day i die.
This anime hit me hard.
It is, in some ways, similar to sayonara zetsubou sensei. Watch that.
I agree, it's much more of a general coming-of-age and friendship story. Even if you consider the conclusion being Watashi hooking up with Akashi, the climax is definitely about his relationship with Ozu, how much he loves him as a friend, and their role reversal. The romance isn't really the focus even if it's prevalent in most of the episodes.
>ozu is watashi
>mfw a friend told me the same shit after he watched it
You seriously need to be a special kind of retard to miss the point this hard.
You're saying it was some Fight Club sort of twist?
That sounds cool, but I don't think so. Remember all those times Ozu and Watashi were in the same room with others and they would be noticed by everyone? Like the climax to the Proxy Proxy war, or like pic. Or even the hospital scene eat the end.
No, the point is it is paralleling Watashi to Ozu, not saying they are the same person.
>the romance is just a subplot and is really more of a friendship anyways
Obviously, because the whole show is about the mental gymnastics Watashi does in order to avoid the fact that he just needed to ask her out. The moment he asked her out, the shows ends so of course we don't get to see the romance but instead the whole build up to the beginning of it.
Watashi's personal growth having him developing a more outgoing personality which in the final reality makes him look like Ozu to Ozu himself, who is now seen as a normal person because Watashi no longers demonizes him.
That doesn't mean that he was Ozu, because that theory is retarded.
You forgot the complementary picture.
I think I've watched this trailer more than fifty times already. The movie can't come soon enough.
The true pain will be waiting for the BD.
I didn't mean that literally.
Ozu is always doing something watashi could be doing as well, they're in the same position and have all the same opportunities. To Watashi it always seems like he's just fooling around insted of getting his life together, but somehow Ozu's always having fun, while watashi is stressing over everything and ends up miserable. And then in the next episode watashi's doing whatever ozu was doing some other time and still feeling miserable. At the end he realizes it's all about attitude, becomes ozu and the other part of himself gets stuck in ozu as a reminder to just enjoy life.
My point was >>152160433 is stupid.
I'd have said that too, but given the relation between the two it makes sense. Plus, we're getting like three Yuasa projects this year. I'd be disappointed if this was his only thing, but I'll take it gladly alongside more original projects.
Gatari is actual romance as the love interests are more than blank slates with a pretty face.
I liked TTG but Akashi was more or less a non-character.
Allow me to elaborate then. Ozu is much more a bro who pranks Watashi and even sometimes does things for the better of him, despite Watashi not realizing.
For example, the fake letters was a way for Ozu to "dude its a prank LMAO" at first, but then once Atashi got involved Ozu used that to let Watashi get connected with the girl he wants to. Ozu saw the lineage of the Proxy proxy war not as a rivalry, but just like a game he was looking forward to playing, like on Jackass how everyone's fucking with each other. Ozu tried to get Watashi's back when they worked for the librarian job, and even helped him find other jobs in those timelines. When Watashi left Jōgasaki's film circle, who followed him to sabotage those movies despite not having any reason to do so to a production he was a part of and left voluntarily?
Ozu was just a bro, and Watashi was too much a senssitive and jealous man that he saw him as a demon incarnate. In the last episode he starts acting the way he did to show Ozu he knew how to be guy friends.
Is it like the difference/similarity between Ever 17 and 999?
There's this, an original film for family audiences to be announced this spring(?), and a TV show. It's rumoured (as in, 0 proof) that the show's a collaboration with Oshiyama of Flip Flappers fame. Yuasa's one of the hardest workers in the industry, fucking crazy.
Yeah, that makes more sense. I think I'll have to rewatch now.
Akane was Zero of the present nonary game. She set it up so that Junpei would go through a similar crisis in the boiler room and use Morphogenetic fields to help Akane get out of the boiler room herself and save her life. However the conceptual twist doesn't just end with the multiple timelines. The 2 screens on the DS represent the 2 perspectives of the player and Junpei. Junpei's perspective is the top screen, which exists all the cutscenes and dialogue. The bottom screen is Akane seeing Junpei through the morph fields, narrating and doing all the decision making in the puzzles and branching paths.
It's actually pretty good shit
Then stop being a shitty EOP.
(The Night is Short, Walk, Oh Maiden)
being stoic and not very outgoing doesn't make someone not have a personality. Akashi was very reserved and we didn't see her as often as other characters but she's definitely more than a "blank slate"
