A bullet-hell of stories rains down on the interwebs

Just watch:

and watch the first five minutes:

and watch from 13:50 to 16:00 (a more complete version of the scene in the first teaser):

… and tell me ufoTable hasn’t been ready to do this for a long time.

What’s on your wish-list?

With the licensing of Xam’d and (previously) Toradora, I thought my wished-for list of anime licenses was growing pretty short.

Then I sat down to enumerate it, and I realized my list still had a ways to go (in no particular order):

  • Summer Wars
  • Mind Game
  • Tatami Galaxy
  • Kaiba
  • Kemonozume
  • Princess Arete
  • Starship girl Yamamoto Yohko (TV)
  • ef: a tale of me*o*ies
  • Bakemonogatari
  • Katanagatari
  • Angel’s Egg
  • Time of Eve (movie)
  • Welcome to the Space Show
  • Dennou Coil
  • Gakuen Utopia Manabi straight
  • Futakoi alternative
  • Kara no Kyoukai
  • Moyashimon
  • Yokohama kaidashi kikou (manga too, please — or, I’d be happy with just the manga, actually)
  • Durarara
  • Minky Momo: the Bridge of Dreams
  • Minky Momo: tabidachi no eki
  • The rest of Yawara!

(Some of these I’ve gone so far as to get (used, primarily) on R2 DVD, and may do more as years of not-being-licensed go by.)

Also, I’ve heard good things about My Mai Miracle, but I haven’t seen it. I’d spring for inexpensive releases of Shangri-la and Angel Beats, too.

This list would keep me ecstatic for a while, certainly.

The Hook Brings You Back

So last Friday I watched 300, which was surprisingly pretty awesome. I came to the theater without any expectations save for the hope of it being epic, and for what it was, it delivered in spades. Yet what was there was pretty shallow: we don’t get to find out much about any of the characters really at all, and whatever plot other than “300 Spartans fight a million Persians, and awesomeness ensues” was extraneous and fairly useless to the movie. Yet that was enough of a hook to keep me interested, and it seemed that other people loved it as well. Watching 300 got me wondering about “hooks” in anime, and how important they are in keeping us interested.

Then we will leap in the shade!

Anime mindsets and whatnot.

Reading this article made me think about omo’s idea about an anime-watching mindset, and how we respond to things that fit/don’t fit into it. He brings up an interesting point about how we tend to hate anime that goes outside of what it’s supposed to be, or rather, what we expect it to be. If someone tries to make a piece of work more that what it should be, it tends not to be a good idea for most people watching.
