#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » World Conquest: Stratagem Star

Added some thoughts about theme to the watch and learn on this you might find interesting. After watching the second episode I feel even stronger this way. One thing recently noticed is Odin the one who said in the preview after the first that he was going to be the one to destroy the world - if so he may be messing up not by mistake...

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Nobunaga the Fool Discussion Thread

Hmm beginning to think this may actually have something to say now which after the last one I was unsure. With the dads death and Caesar coming in for the daughter (is she supposed to be Cleopatra now?) we may have gotten to a more direct east west conflict so we may see some actual thought and theme. One thing I didn't get....oda's adviser at the end the one who poisoned him (right before an attack which was perfect timing...almost to perfect now that I think about it) mentioned that card and said he had made a mistake. Now he overheard vinci talking about the card so that is what he is referring to I assume but the mistake....he did allow oda to not get posinoned and the advisers will respect him now. So what was the mistake is he simply guilty over having the father die...not much he could have done about that...

Thoughts?

Man just wow....both Gandhi and Newton want Oda and Galileo is jealous and...injured...

I have to say that was HILARIOUS! Now who were the new people we met and what were they historically? Didn't recognize any of them. But man exploding yourself and sending your brain to go away and become the next version with all your memories intact. Species memory to the 9th power. Impressive and would certainly allow for some directed evolution!

@takashichea: and for this series that works as they didn't start out giving the idea that anything else was going on. I mean some character development with the protag sure but no one is going to watch this thinking they have some grand message they are trying to impart.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil

@Marshal Victory: You can trademark the names Kermit and Ms. Piggy and I am sure they have but you can't really trademark a "look" and this isn't nearly close enough to have a copyright problem. If the Disney lawyers tried this hell I'd take the case probono and beat them. Even if you could trademark a look the looks here are not nearly close enough - no one is going to mistake this for Kermit or Ms. Piggy.

@takashichea: They label them not her real boobs - so yes they are not that big. I LOVE THIS SHOW. Just the right over the top nature, just the right amount of I care about the characters (I mean any anime nerd can relate to what she goes through). The fight scenes are incredible and the powers are ridiculous. I mean really SHE WAS RIDING THROUGH A HURRICANE ON A PARACHUTE!! Galileo is a cute loli girl (which is a little ridiculous) and when she uses her power she looks like a Dalek, and later we get even more crazy historical figures. (And unlike the other nobundga show - which I thought was going to be serious and say something about east west relations I am not insulted about how they are representing western historical figures). I'm sold as all heck on this show!

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil

Oh lord....muppets after dark...I got the corrupt law vibe after the first episode when she went to see the lady in jail, and the general racism against wizards (though given the power they have is somewhat understandable). Haven't caught up with this yet so glad that it stayed good.

Nobunagun » So if no one else is going to talk about this I will!

If there is a thread for this all ready let me know because I love this show and would love to talk about it with people. Music is incredible, animation is interesting, idea is crazy, action is balls to the wall, AND IT HAS A SPACE BUNNY! I mean really what more than that do you want?

So how many people think the brain we found out about in episode 3 is her "friend" that seems to be the running theory elsewhere - comes off the idea that oba was betrayed by his retainer I believe (along with the opening to some extent I think). I love the flying through the air in the hurricane episode along with her dance that was hilarious - but really...does she have to look like megaman? Anywho what else about this do people love?

Wizard Barristers » Lets mix a shonen anime with...Law and Order (?) Wizard Barrister

So....lets talk about this show. I honestly am not sure what to think about this. The animation is absolutely AMAZINGLY gorgeous and the frog that is the main character's familiar is cute as all BON! The fight animation was great but I am just not sure how this is going to work so are we going to have shonen here mixed in with law and order like criminal procedure....I am not sure if interrupting Dragon Ball Z with someone commenting on freeze's legal defense strategy is going to work....

Still I am intrigued enough to stick around and see if they can make it work and perhaps they will surprise me I mean it has happened before.

So what are people thinking about the little we are seeing about Japanese legal system? As a law student that is my major original draw but the love quadrilateral and mix of tropes used in interesting ways is keeping me around.

Bakemonogatari » Bakemonogatari --- wtf

Ok so I just started watching this...and really wtf this is one truly odd odd show. Up to episode five the end of the strange strange elementary school girl (who I expect is not an elementary school girl) and I just have to ask does any of this get explained...it is so odd.

Do they add fan service with chibi in this? Didn't in the first episode...the loli nature of the fan service might get him though....it would be interesting to see him try it though...What do you say @no_name_here (sigh can't seem to call out tom...)

So Tokyo just got the 2020 Olympics (so start saving your money now) anime inspired opening ceremonies? (Expect not but boy wouldn't that be funny!) and Tom you should talk about wrestling not being in the Olympics and the changes it had to make to come back...

Other than Madoka no and that is certainly only on the fringe that it does. I do love me some c-control though..good stuff. Don't understand it as much as i would like but I did enjoy it.
