Zombie land saga is a biting critique of the idol industry, making literal the gnawing, unending hunger for fame and wealth in it's zombie cast. In this paper I will,

When you say routes what do you mean?

There are three routes through the original game depending on which girl you like, Saber, Rin, and the other one.

Its a good show so far but I feel like it might have made it a little too obvious too early that there's going to be a really big twist later and that Vivy's fight isn't so cut and dry.

I did enjoy the politician from the first two episodes turning out to be an idiot who doesn't really care about AI tho.

In the visual novel the only way to replenish your servant's mana was to give them some hankie pankie

Somehow that was mysteriously dropped in all the adaptations and endless spinoffs

I watched Jin-Roh again, and I don't even know what to think.

It's pretty much an anime only because the period set pieces and special effects would be too expensive for a live action film.

That is pretty much it, that was how the market was and once FSN became big they were swiftly reconnected out. Honestly it's for the best because Kinoko Nasu has many strengths as a writer but his skill in erotica is legendarily terrible

the best part is the sex scenes dont occur for like 15~18 hours of reading in each route too. its always locked up in the back quarter. the replacement scenes have like, a psycho-sexual bent to them still but they are infinitely more tasteful and good

Honestly I ponder the reaction of some horny otaku who picked it up in the 2000s expecting some fantasy themed porn and then ended up with hours worth of narration from a ptsd ridden nutcase with sword on on brain in the middle of a magical death match

Zombie Land Saga: Revenge, Odd Taxi and Vivy are good shows this season I agree. The Godzilla: Singular Point show and Dragon Goes House-Hunting are also good. Shadows House is pretty original as well.

The vape wizard always getting owned despite being the most obnoxious rear end in a top hat is the best part.

It's not a fun movie, I didn't enjoy watching it. But it's a very well made movie, and you would probably never see something like it get made again. So it's probably still worth watching if you can stand something that's very grim and somber.

Also it does make fascism look very, very cool.

to your eternity, super cub, and oddtaxi are my aots in order of increasing satisfaction

I suspect to your eternity will escalate into Parasyte the maxim levels of weird gore and action given stuff in the OP and how shapeshifters have entered the public consciousness thanks to John Carpenters The Thing but it remains to be seen

super cub is a Honda ad about depression and their small displacement scooters but as far as shows-that-are-ads go its nice and might encourage Japanese youth to start motorcycle gangs which is a plus since Godspeed You Black Emperor (the documentary about Japanese motorcycle gangs) inspired the excellent Canadian post-rock band of the same name

oddtaxi is going in heavily with themes of alienation and getting dicked over by your station in life - our principal characters are a 41 year old cab driver and his lonely 41 year old janitor buddy, and all the side characters introduced so far literally are striving against their positions or otherwise discontent. its wild. my friend pointed out the 2 main guys are basically elder millennials denied the trappings of adulthood

also,
by dint of them having season 2s Ive started welcome to demon school iruma -kun, that moriarty show, and zombie land saga as things i might have liked had i watched them as they aired and so far all are at least interesting

e: watch Jin-Roh! its very dark and very stylish and if memory serves the dub is even serviceable. the opening is explosive and entrancing - think the coup in Patlabor 2. then it slows down a bit.

Otherwise I don't know how you come away from a movie as bleak, dark, depressing, and brutally violent as that with "hm yes this is making out a fascist police state as a totally good thing and brutality is good", that's incredible, like were you even watching the same movie lmfao
