How can one show be so immensely fun?
I'd say the first ten episdoes are a bit slow, show gets better after that.
Mendou and Aturo comedy is pretty good, and you notice how much of a cock hungry slut Shinobu really is after she jumps the ship.
The entire best thing abotu it was probably Beatiful dreamer which is a 10/10 movie.
I too gave it a fair shot and really couldnt get that into it.
It is basically anime: The sitcom. If you like shows like I Love Lucy and could watch those on Netlfix then this is for you. Otherwise it was designed to be something you could easily catch on t.v. and enjoy if you had nothing else to do.
Well, technically in the anime Lum was considered the main character, getting top billing in the credit list over Ataru, even though most of the writing featured Ataru as the protagonist.
You won't find this in an everyday sitcom:
Leave it to Oshii to take the most overlooked, disabused character in the show and create an entire episode around her dilemma and world view and to make it the most memorable episode in the series.
The key to understanding this episode is regression of time. In every dream the mother is presented with a time frame earlier than the one that came before it. The first two are literal: An old woman, a middle-aged housewife. The remaining regressions are more psychological and surreal, once she realizes it is a dream she regresses to the mindset of a carefree hedonist, not unlike someone in their 20's just partying and living it up without a care. The next regression is a childlike story of absolute good vs. absolute evil in a war to save mankind. A more childish viewpoint that serves to be simplistic themes in cartoons and blockbuster movies. The final regression is to a child playing a child's game, and when she realizes that the child is herself, and she sees both herself, her youth, her fate and her whole life in perspective. She is the one behind her.
I seriously tear up whenever I see this episode.
I like her butt.
1. Why does everyone like Beautiful Dreamer so much? Is it because 2deep4u?
2. What the fuck is up with all the nazi shit?
1. It does the 'it's just a dream' plot better than Paprika or Inception by focusing on the surreality of dreams rather than the outright spectacle of them.
2. They're saying Megane is crazy and controlling, like Hitler. Also Oshii wanted a tank. He always wants a tank.
>No, the first 10 episodes are the best part.
Nah,I guess you're that anon that dislikes most o the anime original content.
I don't see how what you're saying even makes sense. The first 10 episodes aren't an accurate representation of the show at all.
Aside from the original content in later ones, there's also the issue that in the first 10 or so episodes the girls often don't reject Ataru and Lum often attacks other girls, something that heavily tonned down later, with almost all girls disliking Ataru and Lum mostly targeting Ataru himself when angry. There's also the Ataru vs Mendo stuff that only starts after the first 10 episodes and is one of the driving engines of the show.
>2. What the fuck is up with all the nazi shit?
Anime staff were military otaku. Most of the Mendo personal army stuff, alongside all the nazi references are anime-only.
Like how in the manga he arrives by helicopter in his first appearance, while in the anime he jumps from a heavy bomber.
That's why i like Seto no Hayame. It's was more or less the same concept as Mendou throwing his cash around.
One episode that i fondly remember of this show when one of meganes friend is outed as a lolicon.
1 I don't know shit about this series, but is that baby Lum's? Is she with the son?
2 What did the child represent? Was it her when she was younger or just a symbol for childhood?
3 what was with all that shit at the end with the goofy war shit and ending on the wife still being in the dream? What could it mean?
4 I don't really understand what that guy meant by your dream not being your own and it being someone elses dream because they thought of it. It doesn't really make sense?
Really liked what I saw. Everything was so impressive. Gotta see more of this kind of tone.
