Welcome to the larger than life edition of Reference Resource Mondays…why so large? Because it’s been a while since I’ve added a lot of links, to a lot of good content last week. Well. At least I thought it was good content.
- So, I stop by over at Nabe!! (My Kokidokom brethren) and write a post about 5 anime I’m in dire need of re-watching:
Today I stop by to go over my nostalgia for old things as I’m going to look back at a couple of shows I should re-watch ASAP. I know some of you have watched shows where you remember almost every detail, but there are also shows that you know you watched but can remember little to nothing about it. There are small worries in re-watching shows you liked growing up, mainly because nowadays your tastes have changed–this happened to me for FLCL, as the last time I watched it last year, the novelty wore off on me. But naturally, we are tempted to see what we would think of a work now as we have grown older. Anyways, like most anime fans there’s a large list of titles we want to watch and re-watch. So for convenience, I’ll list five shows that I would want to re-watch soon.
- Naru thinks she can escape from getting listed here by talking about summer anime…that’s not actually summer 2012 anime. Too bad. Well, at least there’s Princess Jellyfish right?
- Sarina has started blogging about Fuyumi Soryo’s Mars shoujo manga, so you might want to check it out if you’re interested in that.
- Lostty gives her halftime impressions on the Summer 2012 shows she’s watching.
- It’s a Space Brothers post. Yeah it’s mostly Bateszi using Space Brothers as an example of what anime can be, but any Space Brothers post deserves to be highlighted I think.
- Myna gives us a list of Top 5 anime moms.
- Esosa asks, “Why Isn’t Anime Selling?”
- I had never heard of Psychic Force. Thanks to EmperorJ in his weekly what he watched post, I don’t have to:
This week’s terribad feature the 1998 adaptation of a fighting game called Psychic Force. There’s a grand plot about psychics being treated poorly by the rest of society. In reality, this was really a story about how the love between the main characters Keith Evans and Burn Griffith is interrupted by intruding women and a racist Chinese caricature.
- Aero and Aedes do a joint review of tone work’s Hatsukoi.
- Man, I’m pretty sure ZakuAbumi summed up how some of the fans of SAO thought when watching the episode:
So yeah, this was yet another awesome episode of this deep show. Those nitpicking haters should just shut up. This is a fantastic show. Don’t watch it if you don’t like it! If you’re still following this anime, you actually like it but are just too much of a coward to admit it, deshou? ^_^ Well, fuck the haters. There are also no plotholes in this show, just go read the novels if you’re out for more information! They can’t explain EVERY SINGLE DETAIL in the anime, you know?!
I also want to live sooo much in Aincrad! I don’t get why people think that’s a bad idea. Stop criticizing the game just because you can’t log out. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature! Go play your shitty WoW and grind mobs, you soulless bastards!
- Problem is I think E Minor one upped him. Fanfiction? Digital Panties? Oh boy.
- Yumeka’s been checking out a few older anime the past few months. Emma happens to be on her list, with a few others.
- Crap. This is the part where I surprisingly admit I only know of Miyazaki as the filmmaker, not a TV series director Shinmaru (though I should have known):
This show is undoubtedly one of the biggest stepping stones in Hayao Miyazaki’s career. He had important jobs on several TV series before this, but Future Boy Conan is where Miyazaki was without a doubt The Man. Isao Takahata co-directed a few episodes and did some storyboarding, Yoshiyuki Tomino storyboarded a couple of episodes and Keiji Hayakawa co-directed half the show, but it is Miyazaki’s baby. His fingerprints are oneverything — that’s apparent 0.00001 seconds into the show.
- Carl takes the time to review the “Excellent Model Cure Marine”, which has everything to do with Kurumi Erika from Heartcatch Precure!.$110 bucks well spent, huh?
- Finally, in case you missed it yesterday, paper from Rail Tracing Anime Blog stopped by and wrote a guest post in Sunday Spotlight involving Megumi Osuga’s MAOH, and the psychological concepts put forth in the manga.
