Finally got around to be in the mood to watch Evangelion 2.22.
That was excellent. After being pretty disappointed with the last movie (even if it was a well-produced film). Man, I haven't feel this exciment and mix of emotions watching Evangelion in years.
Hope the next movie is just as good.
I loved it too -- amazing how goddamn good it was. Mari was a great new character, and I thought her positivity and complete inability to get down and gloomy played off perfectly against Shinji. Curious with the next title -- they've changed a few things.
And c'mon... how awesome is Eva Unit 01 with the glow-in-the-dark
Watched the first episode of "Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!"
This is an *excellent* idea; but I hated the execution.
Basically deals with "Grade 8 Syndrome", that over-active imagination that, when after watching Power Rangers, we'd go outside and play "Power Rangers". Or when you're at a Green light, you try to "magically" wish it to change. This deals with a girl who has that, but because this is animé, she takes it to an 11 and makes it the daily purpose of her life and to bring others into it with her (the first episode has our main guy, instead of flirting with the object of his affection, has to take the main girl to the nurse's office, walk her home, then unpack her belongings because she lives just upstairs from him). I call her annoying, not moe.
It's got the usual 5-star
KyoAni quality -- but I find the character designs just as irksome. The main girl caters to the fucking weird thing Japanese have for the eyepatches, and one of the other main girls has an oversized hair clip on her bangs, over her face. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought girls wear hair clips to keep hair OFF their face or in place somewhere else.
