I really liked Legend of Galactic Heroes but the series is unabashedly you taking a college course on a famous historical epic. This is barely a joke, there are multiple parts where a professor in the present discusses historical events that set the stage for the socio-political climate of the show which is also deep in the past to the professor.

Yup, it owns

LOGH is good, the author's follow-up to it [Tytania] is not.

i want to hear more about the "weird tax thing"

Cartoon Network wrote it off as a tax loss which means they can't really do much of anything with it anymore.

Its... okay. It takes place after the second movie and can be kind of dark. The premise is that kaiju start showing up in Australia and so the entire continent just gets abandoned by the military. The show proper takes place five years after that with everything in ruins.

The biggest problem it has is near the end because the movie tried to keep things fairly realistic with their stuff but the show just throws it all away by having a kaiju that can look like a normal human but also transform into a giant monster.

That's fair about the realism, but tbh that also seems like a logical enough place to end up as an evolution of whatever the gently caress was going on in PR2 with Charlie from It's always Sunny.

It's just Pacific Rim: Mad Max

That might be appealing to some, just not what I'm looking for with my robots punching monsters cartoon.

Fafner in the Azure is the name of the franchise, this latest entry is called Fafner the Beyond.

Fair warning: the franchise won't make any sense unless you watch it in order from the beginning, and the early stuff doesn't look nearly this good. Also it can be kind of a downer.

I'm also using this as an excuse to talk about it partially because of the whole "humanity is dying and people are going on dates" thing upthread. The premise of Yokohama Shopping Trip is that humanity is hosed thanks to ecological collapse. Humanity has decided to take their twilight days easy and slide into oblivion with as little fuss as possible. Watch the sunset, do some fishing. The story is told by a robot who runs a coffee shop and knows that she's going to outlive humanity by many, many centuries and is trying to have the best time of it she can while she can.

I haven't watched the anime but I'm a big fan of the manga. Even though it's not canon, the setting to me feels like a post-singularity world, where we're seeing the people who chose to be left behind. The disrupted ecology, the bits and pieces of advanced technology (fully sentient androids, some really odd biology, the permanently flying plane, etc).
