Gundam Reconguista in G: We Are With Hell

December 17, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 Has anyone else noticed some extra in the subtext in the ending of Gundam Reconguista in G? They probably have but I have not seen a lot of discussion about it so I felt it was worth bringing it up. I was discussing the song with Carl Li from Ogiue Maniax and he mentioned that it was probably partially just written to have a song with the name of the show in the lyrics. He is almost certainly correct with that assessment. Tomino really does love to throw the name of the show into the opening and closing. But that is not all that is going on here.

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works #010 – The Bushwhackers

December 13, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 I have to admire Ufotable and Type-Moon’s commitment to adapting Unlimited Blade Works. It seems that on top of the first two-hour long episodes they are ending the first half of this arc with another hour-long episode. I’m sure that if the budget were smaller we would not be getting this level of commitment but I thank whoever is footing the bill. This will probably be the definitive adaptation of Unlimited Blade Works.

When someone asks, “How do I get into Type-Moon?” this is probably the first thing I would point them at once it has wrapped up. This episode more than any other has shown me that this is not only a smart transfer of the visual novel to a fully animated medium but there is some strong decisions made here that actually make certain aspects surpass the original. I would never say that this makes the original visual novel obsolete but it has proven itself capable of standing side by side with its progenitor.

That is no small praise from me. Read the rest of this entry »
