"Rock n' Roll Documentary Parody" sounds like an episode title for the show Baccano episode title. Anyways, Tom the best way I can sell you on Space Dandy is to tell you that it is as if someone took the middle third of Redline and expanded it into its own series. All the antics that JP gets up to on Europass, that's Space Dandy.

Matt Murphy is the Studio Trigger of Vice Pit. Tom is the Gainax studio head, trying to reel him in. I love it. I slightly disagree with you Tom, although you are spot on with most of your diagnosis. While Kill la Kill is a bit of a mess, it is an enjoyable mess.

Best case scenario: You discover a new great rock band that you're really into.Worst case scenario: You have a hilarious story to write up on your website.From what I see it's a win/win.

I wasn't originally interested in The Wind Rises, the concept alone seemed uninteresting, but the controversy surrounding the movie intrigues me. You guys spent 14 minutes talking about the film, without even touching upon it's morality. That shows me that the experience is way deeper than I gave it credit for. I'll have to go check it out at my local Alamo Drafthouse.

It may not be the best final 30 seconds of the Vice Pit, but dangit if it isn't the rawest.

All I'm really (re)watching right now is RahXephon (sorry Sam, but you are dead wrong on that series). Just waiting for my Psycho Pass dvds to ship in March. I'd like to hear the Vice take on Jormomgaud, considering how much you guys love Black Lagoon.

If I remember correctly, the context of the Miyazaki's comment was directed against the art direction otaku take. It was something along the lines of "We have people who don't like looking at people drawing people!" His disturbing views on potential mental illness aside, an easy rebuttal would be to ask him how many forest gods he's seen prior to Princess Mononoke?I'm trying to think if I've ever stopped watching ...

Much has been said about Trigger's separation from Gainax, and having recently re-watched Gurren Lagann I can say that the writing is all over the place for this show. Every proclamation, every off-hand comment in GL foreshadowed future episodes. Sometimes they followed through with a threat from one episode prior (ep 8 anyone?) and other times they told of what ridiculousness the later arcs would hold (how many people truly ...

@Marshal Victory: I don't want to turn this into a good taste/ bad taste argument. I just think that in my case, my being young and nihilistic helps me enjoy the show. If I had a girlfriend I don't know if Space Dandy is the first thing that I would show her. . . scratch that, the first thing I would show her would be Redline. If she doesn't dig ...

The first thing that I though when I saw the show was, "Holy crap, my wish for a Redline TV series has come true." The first portion of the first episode was a hilarious spoof of the TNA normally present in anime to satisfy the otaku crowd. Going from there, it is exactly what I want in anime: irreverence, fun, splashy colors, and a setting/narrative impossible in any other medium. ...

As you pointed out Sam, Evangelion is a commentary on the mech genre. That's why I feel like these Rebuild films are a commentary of Evangelion itself, and moreover on its ironic legacy in the medium of anime. So the clone, or is it, Shinji represents the Rebuilds. Sure they look the same, but are different beasts entirely. Now everyone in the movie is super upset with Shinji, and why ...

I had the privilege of seeing Eva 3.0 in theaters last week, and I gotta say. . . I liked it. Not love, but not loath either. I actually have my primary experience from the rebuild films, and after that exposure I tracked down the original series and especially the masterpiece END OF EVA. All that said, I agree with you Tom when you said it felt like a moment ...

I know I'm a bit late on this one but how about "Kill la Commentary"?

Of all the running jokes on Vice Pit, I think that Tom's hate for Hetalia is my favorite. It get's a laugh from me every time at least!A follow on to the "Which anime is like a pizza?" question, which anime reminds you of an adult beverage? For me, Eureka 7 (my favorite anime) is like my favorite drink, the illustrious White Russian. Both are sweet upon first taste, but ...

Sorry for being away for so long. I haven't been able to comment as much as I'd like recently. Thanks, college education. Anyways, here's my list:1) Bones2) Gainax3) Shaft4) Madhouse5) Gonzo

Weird that there's no Metal Gear. Seems super obvious. That, and I'd like to see Grand Theft Auto done in a Baccano sort of adaptation.

I hear so many good things about this show and yet I still haven't checked it out. I feel the same way out HxH as FMA: Brotherhood. Yes their reputation precedes them but it's hard to justify their episode count when there are so many other long form shows that I'm currently watching (Tiger and Bunny, Gurren Lagann, Soul Eater). Hopefully I'll get around to it someday.

I love how Tom just mentions the "H" word and it looks like he becomes immediately and visibly upset.

@Turambar: See, I think we have different opinions on this matter, and I respectfully disagree with your assessment. When I'm watching the show week-to-week, I run into this very problem. When I'm marathoning the show, obviously this problem is alleviated.

The YouTube channel is getting a huge revamp, we're setting up a wikia and message board we can migrate to. AV isn't going away, it's just changing. Come along for the ride and see what happens!

Batman is Anime, and Zelda's an RPG. These are a few of the most dumbest (sic) things.

It seems the Twiter link on profiles isn't working. The same Tweet I made weeks ago is still on here.
