Then you have a responsibility that no man has ever faced. You have your fear which could become reality, and you have Godzilla, which is reality.

it's subtitled anime so not good for just throwing on in the background, you do need to be paying attention to it to understand what's going on

the old series is good but very long. it doesn't feel like it gets caught up in wheel-spinning filler, though. the new series is much shorter and still hits the major plot elements, but sometimes feels like it was made for people that already watched the old one.

this is my poo poo though. i hear rumors it leans too hard into "we just need a STRONG BENEVOLENT DICTATOR to take care of problems", is that just people not reading subtlety like it sometimes is?

the thing about logh is that it's slow. it's over 100 episodes with a lot of politicking and history lessons between space battles, so settle in for a marathon and try to remember that something will eventually happen

one of the main characters is an aspiring strong benevolent dictator, especially later in the show, and it doesn't want to label him or his rival as a hero/villain but rather a participant in the epic sweep of history. it's an ongoing conflict between monarchism and self-determination so neither of them is going to pull ahead until the end

you don't understand the concept of background music? cause it's the same thing

sometimes people do things that aren't watching tv, but use the audio for tv shows as background music

Agreed, kind of glad this is the last season. It felt like they were going the arrested development route of just making variances of the jokes that were popular in the first couple seasons.

90s cinema had its share of problems, but id rank it miles ahead of our current wasteland of marvel cinematic universe entries, reboots, franchises, adaptations, and relaunches
