Explaining EOE (End of Eva)

Copied from my MAL post.

Okay. I can explain. Rei was tired of listening to Gendo and merged with Lilith to demonstrate this. Causing the Third Impact, which thus destroyed the world, but eventually people did reconstruct. The only two that were left were Shinji and Asuka. I’m pretty sure Shinji still had lingering frustration with her, so he tried to strangle her. Asuka said “disgusting” because she was disgusted by the fact that Shinji tried killing her. The part with the real world sequence is supposed to be a world where Shinji doesn’t exist. And Shinji is completely traumatized by having to kill Kaworu, so why would he want to pilot the thing that killed the only person who remotely gave two shits about him?

Honestly, I don’t find it that hard to understand. The animation gave me a headache, though. Now, Revolutionary Girl Utena… which had the most confusing movie ever, that I had a hard time understanding.

And of course, there’s another anime that’s even worse with “the fuck did I just watch?”

Gantz.

All of it.

And, Humanity Has Declined. The only anime that drove me to tears because I couldn’t understand a freaking thing. But Evangelion was child’s play. I understood the whole thing without summaries. Yeah.

Kagerou Project, though, I won’t lie about, is probably the most complicated. Time is a trick thing to mess with. You’ve got to realize, there’s a lot of time resets in Kagepro. If you can grasp the entire story, you’re too good. It took me at least until the anime to understand everything. Before (my first try) the manga, I didn’t get it at all. So, it took a lot of summaries for that one, lmao.

On another note, non anime related…if you can fully understand Homestuck, you sir, are amazing. I can’t even grasp it without DESCRIPTIONS!

But yeah, I understand Neon Genesis Evangelion as well as the End of Eva. It’s not as complicated as you make it out to be. Then again, I have serotonin deficiency. Partially, I am “mentally ill.” So, I guess the two understand one another. But weirdness from Utena is too hard.

Yuri Kuma took a long time, too, js.

But yeah.

Gantz.

Gantz for the most fucked up anime of all mankind. I just sat through four episodes. My face was like this: @_@

…………………….

Why in god’s name would I pick this? Watch it dubbed if you do. I won’t say it’s bad. I think the plot is interesting, or tries to be.

But try to avoid it, if necessary.

If you haven’t seen School Days…

…Don’t do it.

Please, don’t watch that anime. Please. It is an abomination. I beg you. Please don’t. This is a request. Please don’t. It is the worst anime I have ever had the misfortune of having to look at. I beg you. Please, please, please.

Makoto deserved what he received, and Sekai also did. Makoto is the worst asshole in all of any anime. AT LEAST PUPA TRIED! School Days doesn’t… School Days just doesn’t know how to have common sense. Even if it did, it still wouldn’t be any good.

It’s awful. The worst anime I have ever seen. Please, please, please don’t watch it. Please.

Gunslinger Girl

This was one I’ve been meaning to watch for SIX YEARS. I’m not even joking. I wish I were. I saw an advertisement for it when I was a 12 year old watching my very first anime on DVD, Full Metal Alchemist. Mind you, this was in 2009 or 2010. I think it might have been 2009. I have been wanting to watch this anime for over six years now, but I wasn’t ready.  I also had complications. Not only wasn’t I ready, I couldn’t even find the DVD. I saw an ad for it where Rico didn’t know what to say to that boy, and she replied “Oh I know! I am sorry…” that was literally all I saw because FUNI had ads for it on various DVDs. It wasn’t until today that I finally wrote it in my schedule.

I’ll start off by saying that this is in the girls suffering genre.

Yes. That’s a genre. I made it up to refer to any anime where the main subject is about girls that are suffering/sad/depressed/impoverished/etc. Madoka, Selector, Yuki Yuna, Dolls Fall are four other examples of anime and manga within this genre.

Anyway, the point of this show seems to be a social welfare agency. Already, you know, we’re in for a sad plot. I don’t know what the situation is with Henrietta yet, but I can already tell it’s a pretty sad one. Triela is a big sister character, and Rico… hmm. Rico seems like she’s got the most tragic of the three. The other girl, the glasses girl, I forget her name. The show is so quiet, I never hear it.

Need I note this show takes place in Italy? Yeah. I think it’s weird they all speak Japanese when they’re in Italy. But this is anime, so I’m going to assume they’re actually speaking Italian in this one. I was considering looking for an Italian dub so I could watch it in its proper language, but I can’t understand Italian without subtitles. I also don’t feel like watching it in English. That’s just…nah.

So, so far, I can tell this anime is going to be extremely sad. I read some of the manga awhile ago, but I barely remember it. That was a long time ago when I sat down to read it.

I don’t know where this show can possibly go, but I guess I just need to keep going. I highly doubt there will be any yuri of any kind, but I do ship Henrietta and Triela.

Current thoughts for spring 2015 anime

What am I watching this season? A catchup:

Sunday: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches.

Monday: Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku.

Tuesday: Hibike! Euphonium.

Wednesday: Houkago no Pleiades.

Thursday: Etotama.

Friday: Danmachi.

Saturday (night): Re-Kan!

Saturday (afternoon): Plastic Memories.

I’m watching eight things, and so far, this is the anime I think will be my anime of the season: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches.

I think Plastic Memories might not be as good as I’m making it out to be and that Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku will be the best thing ever in all of everything. Re-Kan will just be the cutest anime of my anime season.

Hmm. Hibike! Euphonium might be alright…it if pulls a K-On! I’m dropping it. No offense.

Houkago no Pleiades might be the most moe thing ever…and then there will be a dark twist. All mahou shoujo do that. Meanwhile

Etotama will be shit. Sure, it’s the kind of ecchi I’m looking for, but the plot is terrible.

Danmachi is way too popular, but I really like it. It’s kind of silly how popular Hestia is, but I digress.

Anyway, I think this season will be okay. We’ll have to see, though. It could end up being a bad season. 😦

Utena

Well, it’s not a surprise I’d watch Revolutionary Girl Utena eventually. I’ve watched both of Ikuhara’s other works. (I don’t count Sailor Moon since he had no creative freedom over it). This show is much weirder now that I realized who directed it. it has Ikuhara’s scent all over it. Repitiveness, random music, etc. Yup, I’m in for a weirdness treat.

People often argue this isn’t a magical girl. I’m sorry, I’m on that side. It has no magical girl feel to it. Then again, I’m five episodes in, so I guess that my judgment will change later. I’ve heard other arguments that this isn’t a yuri either, but I can see it is since Himemiya is basically engaged to Utena and calls her “Utena-sama.” Even without getting around this, it’s obviously a yuri.

From a standpoint, Utena wants to be a prince. I already knew that before watching this, by the way, since I read the manga partway. I thought that was kind of weird, but I got used to it.

Also, my favorite line, um.
“Well, there’s no rule against a girl wearing the boy’s uniform!” Just… lol.

I’ve heard many things that it

A.) Is a mindfuck.

B.) Has a sitton of symbolism.

C.) Is very weird.

D.) Gets very dark.

E.) Is famous for a reason.

So, I’ll look for all the symbolism as I go on. So far, I can see why it’s well received. I’ll keep going in five episode intervals for now.

Plastic Memories is going to be Sad

Okay, so I’m watching this anime called Plastic Memories. New show, no manga or light novels, or game. It’s about these androids called Giftia’s–and they’re androids with souls and emotions…but they have a service end date of 9 years and 4 months. The people have to retrieve the memories of the Giftia’s when the service ends…

…Well, damn. And the scene where they were doing a retrieval? I almost cried. I’m still watching Your Lie in April, but Plastic Memories is going to keep me in the sadness train. I’m not sure if I’m ready for this. Your Lie in April was sad from the beginning, too, and now Plastic Memories is doing it as well.

Ugh! Anime! You can’t do this to me. 😦

Slaine

Did nothing wrong. Yes, I’m very sorry to say that, but I feel like I can sympathize with the guy. I’m kind of not sure why I feel like I can say this, but seriously, I don’t find what he did wrong? Yeah, I really don’t. I’m so sorry for saying this…anyway, this is just my opinion.

It doesn’t really mean much since I seriously feel like he did nothing wrong, so why not?

Eh. T_T Ah well, no harm done?
