You did a super job wrapping things up! And I'm not just saying that because I have to!

When I learned about this sort of thing in school I went through a brief phase of seeing things sort of as Matrix code. Like I'm not seeing a red table, I'm seeing red light reflected from the table and blasted into my optic nerves upside down, which my brain uses to assemble a picture of what it's pretty sure is a red table but also there's a huge blind spot which it fills in with whatever it thinks I would see if I was looking at that spot directly. You think that's air you're breathing now?!

And our eyes evolved backwards so all the blood vessels that feed the eye are in front of the retina. Our brain filters them out and fills in the missing pieces otherwise we’d be looking through a field of blood vessels all the time.

I watched Ninja Scroll in my early teens because I was told it had sex scenes in it. It went way better than when I later watched Legend Of The Overfiend because I was told it had sex scenes in it.

yeah, the sex scenes in legend of the overfiend kind of make you wish for some horrifying violence to get the taste out of your mouth. Then violence comes along and doesn't get the taste of your mouth at all and you just wish you were watching something else.

Legend of overfiend benefits from being made before the internet because at that point it wasbasically the only game in town for hosed up porn poo poo from Japan

I have no idea how today's youth would even react to it

I made a point of watching the uncut version at one point. See, usually, when things get a censored release, they get a few seconds, maybe a few minutes cut. The uncut version is just clearer views of wounds or slightly longer shots of a violent act. Maybe some boobs that aren't in shadow or an unmuffled swear word. The censored version of Legend of the Overfiend was forty minutes shorter. Whole plot lines and scenes were cut out because there was no way to cut around the violent sex and sexual violence and keep the scene coherent.

At the same time, there's some amazing craft to those horrifying scenes. You look at these incredibly hosed vagina and tentacle monsters and realise the designs must have been really hard to draw and a loving herculean task to animate. I saw an interview with one of the directors or something, and he was incredibly proud of how they'd pioneered using tentacles instead of cocks. It's one of the best and funniest interviews of anyone that I've ever seen.

I remember going in cold on Ninja Scroll at like 12 because I wanted to get into anime and being like, “Whoa, this is a cartoon and that chick just got naked!”

I actually took a look at the trailer on the HBOMax app for the first time and it looks really good in pillarbox. You can really see that they framed each shot with that aspect ratio in mind.

I don't think I can remember any modern releases that uses this. I'm all for this sort of stuff.

The Lighthouse was presented in 1.19:1. I'm working under the assumption that it escaped people's ire because the sort of person bothered by that sort of thing wouldn't be watching The Lighthouse.

Yup, pretty much the same for me. Ninja Scroll and Crying Freeman were like gateway drugs that led to my discovery of Guyver, Vampire Hunter D, Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Fist of the North Star, and the Street Fighter Animated Movie. Those are the ones I ended up watching multiple times.

DURF, that makes sense, my bad for misreading it. (I'm in the hospital and high as a goddamn kite on IV dilaudid, I blame that for my foggy brain.)

In any event, I dig it. My knowledge of Martian Manhunter is limited to a few episodes of Supergirl, but I'm always happy to see Harry Lennix on a screen; the dude is obscenely charismatic and should have a much more prolific career.

Yikes, hope it's nothing serious.

If you want more Martian Manhunter check out the DCAU Justice League series, Carl Lumbly is a king.

I am greatful for my loop pedal

The Vanity Fair article says "He has reshot the ending with a hero cameo that will blow hardcore fans minds".

Curious if this is someone other than Martian Manhunter given his appearance is supposed to be earlier.

Perhaps Green Lantern? Might make sense given we see the ring fly away in the history lesson.
