Dagger Posted March 20, 2004 Share Posted March 20, 2004 The purpose of this thread is mainly to discuss upcoming unlicensed series, although you should also feel free to talk about domestic DVDs. You're welcome to offer recommendations, speculation and all sorts of pre-emptive criticism..... reading over the "Live Action Evangelion" topic leads me to believe that people love forming rather extreme opinions about material which has yet to be created. ^_^;; I just finished downloading the trailers for Bakuretsu Tenshi, Kono Minikuku mo Utsukushii Sekai, Le Portrait de Petit Cossette and Midori no Hibi. Although I plan on seeing all of these series, I have a sinking suspicion that one or more of them may turn out to be a total train wreck. [b]Bakuretsu Tenshi[/b] looks very sharp, with gorgeous mecha and equally attractive girls. Nearly everything about it screams GONZO, which could be a good thing or a bad thing..... right now, I'm hoping that Bakuretsu will live up to the promise of its flashy animation. [b]Kono Mini[/b] is a Gainax romantic comedy/sci-fi drama--I really can't tell what category, if any, it belongs to--and appears to be quite fanservice-heavy. I wasn't surprised to see this, especially considering that its character designs are so similar to those of Mahoromatic, but something about the preview made me extremely leery. :/ I'm most excited about [b]Le Portrait de Petit Cossette[/b]. It has smooth, eerie animation (which no doubt owes a great deal to the fact that it's an OVA), lovely music, and what appears to be some truly excellent voice acting. Serious, creepy shows are my bread and butter, so I can't wait to watch this. [b]Midori no Hibi[/b] seems genuinely weird. As far as I can tell, it's a comedy about a Kyo-esque boy with a pretty, diminuitive girl....um..... [i]attached[/i] to one of his hands. o_O The corresponding manga is apparently rather amusing, although I haven't had the chance to read it for myself. ~Dagger~ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
