Re: Denpa Onna

[10:19 PM] erejnion: I think I will watch Denpa Onna once again
[10:19 PM] erejnion: it's a surprisingly rewatchable anime
[10:20 PM] erejnion: you find new snapshots to take on every rewatch
[10:20 PM] hellraiser: I still think it's the pinnacle of eroticism for Shaft
[10:20 PM] hellraiser: nothing comes even close
[10:20 PM] erejnion: these are two frames all in all
[10:20 PM] erejnion: they take 1/12th of a second on screen together
[10:21 PM] hellraiser: that's how it is when you have passion for your work

Реорганизация на трамвайните линии в София

  • скъсяване на тм11 от Княжево до Хан Кубрат
  • скъсяване на тм7 от МанЛи до Централна Гара
  • премахване на тм1
  • премахване на тм4 и тм18
  • тм3 от Захарна до Иван Вазов
  • намаляване на интервалите по тм3, тм5, тм7, тм10, тм 11, тм12
  • синхронизиране на тм10 и тм12 по Графа
  • удължаване на тм5 от Княжево до Орландовци

  • премахване на трамвайната връзка от Орландовци към Попа - не е особен негатив, защото така или иначе това винаги е бил заобиколен маршрут, и ако хората пътуват посока изток, обикновено слизат и ходят към Сточна Гара
  • премахване на трамвайната връзка от Илиянци към Красна Поляна/Княжево - мисля че не е особен проблем, особено предвид че прекачването ще е лесно между две по-редовни линии
  • премахване на трамвайната връзка която тм3 прави от Орландовци до ЦГ/Ботев - тя и в момента практически я няма с такива интервали
  • разчитане на един и същи интервал на трамвай от Орландовци до Княжево - в момента до Орландовци ходят повече мотриси на час отколкото тм5 имаше преди ремонта, така че там ще е нормално натоварено като за край на линията (т.е. колкото е натоварено и в Княжево). Има три километра от колелото в Княжево до там където става натоварено (Каблешков), и има пак точно 3 километра от колелото в Орландовци до Халите.

  • подобряване на обслужването на Орландовци: вместо 3 линии с различни интервали, една редовна линия, която прави важни връзки
  • намаляване на интервалите по Борис 3, по България, по Стамболийски и Баучер, по К. Величков, към Захарна и Иван Вазов
  • създаване на по-удобни прекачвания: между тм5 и М1/М4, между тм5 и тм20/22, между М2 и тм11
  • удобна последна спирка на тм5
  • пътувайки на север от Сердика, би имало избор между три редовни висококапацитетни линии: М2, тм5, тм12, според зависи точно накъде пътуваш; в момента тм12 не е най-редовната, а тм4 и тм18 може да ги чакаш малко, а може и току-що да са минали и двата трамвая
  • пътувайки на юг от Сердика няма да се налага да ходиш до колелото на Съдебна за да хванеш редовната линия
  • по-добро обслужване на Орландовци и Илиянци може да увеличи инвестициите там
  • освобождава се мегдан някой ден тм7 да минава по евентуалния пробив и да върти зад Централна Гара при новото строителство там
и, най-вече:
  • по-малко на брой линии по основните трамвайни трасета (Борис 3 (2->1), Ботев (4->2), Мария Луиза(3->2), Графа(3->2), Каменоделска (3->1), т.н.) без намаляване на броя на мотрисите по тези трасета означава по-равномерно обслужване и по-малко чакане

Re: Realist Hero

Realist Hero had really weird pacing:
Episodes 1 to 8 - book 1
Episodes 9 to the middle of 12 - book 2
The remaining one and a half episodes - one third of book 3
A full second season of presumably 13 episodes - the remainder of book 3 and book 4

Can somebody explain me why? It ended literally in the middle of nowhere like that, not even a cliffhanger, just one bland "wait, that's it?" right after introducing a new character. And book 2 is mostly descriptions of fighting, so 5 episodes would have been mostly enough for it. But with just 3.5 episodes it's rushed as fuck.
I mean, I'm not complaining. I expected them to get all four books in 13 episodes, making everything way more rushed, so even 3.5 episodes is beyond my expectations. I just fail to see any logic in adapting the first book properly, then for some reason upping the pacing significantly. Let's say they will spend some time fleshing out the rushed bits of book 3 in S2, after all they have nearly 8 episodes per book for each of book 3 and 4. But why book 2 specifically getting the scissors?
Or, like, do they intend to adapt more than books 1-4? The author himself says that books 1-4 were the original arc that he intended to write, so everything afterwards is just bonus material. It makes no sense to include anything more than them.

I'm genuinely baffled by this decision.

That being said, Mao voicing the tanuki is pure pleasure, and getting to hear the blue trash sing the actual song Give a Reason absolutely made the anime for me.

Re: Shaft

[2:14 PM] It's me: using studios to describe things will never not get annoying. Preferred if people or cultural terms are used to and referred to describe things
[2:15 PM] erejnion: sometimes it's the only correct way however
[2:15 PM] It's me: Nah. There's probably a term established by the culture for that
[2:16 PM] erejnion: nope
[2:17 PM] It's me: If you take into account Disney then probably so
[2:18 PM] erejnion: 2000's Shaft is a combination of a peculiar superflat artstyle that came around as a combination from Shinbo and Oonuma and several of the other creatives there, a characteristic use of severe cost-cutting methods in the most creative way possible, and a tendency to overload the screen - with references in the background, or 4th wall breaking stuff in the foreground, and so on.
[2:19 PM] It's me: Yeah that's rather unique
[2:19 PM] erejnion: it's a deliberate style produced by several of the staff in Shaft back in these years, specifically for the sake of Shaft
[2:19 PM] erejnion: then the last decade we saw a lot of shows by other companies that were more Shaft-like than the actual Shaft shows, lol
[2:21 PM] It's me: Why aren't you making a treatise about it?
[2:21 PM] erejnion: I find it so obvious that the above is practically all I can say about it
[2:21 PM] erejnion: it's not like I've researched any of the inner workings of the studio, lol
[2:23 PM] It's me: You gonna take this idea with you to the grave huh.
[2:23 PM] erejnion: eh, the Shaft fandom knows it
[2:23 PM] erejnion: like the dude I linked you
[2:23 PM] It's me: I guess describing art is as difficult as describing psychosexuality
[2:24 PM] erejnion: this guy definitely gets it
[2:26 PM] It's me: Yeah but there's not much to go on unless one has the context.
[2:28 PM] erejnion: true
[2:28 PM] erejnion: you know what will happen now that you've convinced me this should exist somewhere on the internet?
[2:29 PM] erejnion: I'll just copy paste this chat in my blog

Re: Sugita

[8:08 PM] erejnion: I want Sugita to pep talk me
[8:09 PM] hellraiser: I already had a whole year of Sugita gracing me with his beautiful voice
[8:09 PM] erejnion: you can do one more year, I'm sure
[8:10 PM] hellraiser:
[8:10 PM] hellraiser: it won't be the same
[8:11 PM] erejnion: it's quite similar
[8:11 PM] erejnion: Sugita is now too lazy to do other voices, it seems
[8:11 PM] hellraiser: why try when you've reached the top?
[8:12 PM] erejnion: yeah

This part actually worked best as tweets

Drive Night

[3:47 PM] hellraiser:
[3:48 PM] hellraiser: so it's supposed to be in the same world as Akudama Drive?
[3:48 PM] hellraiser: no wonder they needed super police there
[3:48 PM] hellraiser: even baseball can kill you
[3:49 PM] erejnion: not enough moon tits
[3:49 PM] erejnion: dropped
[3:50 PM] erejnion: I literally read the title as "Drive Night"
[3:50 PM] erejnion: close enough
[3:50 PM] erejnion: I've done worse with katakana
[3:52 PM] hellraiser: yup
[3:52 PM] erejnion: I'd watch the shit out of Drive Night
[3:52 PM] erejnion: it sounds like some 80s aesthetics shit
[3:53 PM] erejnion: Dirty Pair ending style
[3:53 PM] hellraiser: it sounds like that VN where two terminally ill patients steal a car and go on a drive through Japan
[3:53 PM] hellraiser: and their goal is to go to the sea early before dawn
[3:53 PM] erejnion: now I know what the author of Super Cub copied
[3:54 PM] hellraiser: sounds logical
[3:54 PM] hellraiser: both have that ''always put yourself first and have fun'' attitude

Symphogear Precure

[9:36 PM] erejnion: I will either start liking "ikitterutte kanji" by the end of this anime or I will kill myself
[9:37 PM] hellraiser: you have 35 episodes more to start liking it
[9:37 PM] hellraiser: kirayaba was only less bad because of the random translations
[9:38 PM] erejnion: nah, that was fine
[9:38 PM] erejnion: the random translations made it fun
[9:38 PM] hellraiser: astro nuts
[9:38 PM] erejnion: bucchake arienai was godlike
[9:38 PM] hellraiser: Precure will never top Nagisa
[9:39 PM] hellraiser: even the one voiced by Koshimizu wasn't as good
[9:40 PM] erejnion: few characters ever top Nagisa, after all
[9:40 PM] hellraiser: some day there'll be a proper Mahou Shoujo crossover game
[9:41 PM] hellraiser: and Nagisa will meet Hibiki
[9:41 PM] hellraiser: and they'll add the Precure Hibiki too

First die:

  • 1: two different numbers with difference of 1 between them (e.g. 1 1 2 or 1 2 2 or 6 6 1 or w/e)  
  • 2: two different numbers with difference of 2 between them (e.g. 1 3 3)  
  • 3: three different numbers with differences 1 -> 1 (e.g. 1 2 3 or 5 6 1)  
  • 4: three different numbers with differences 1 -> 2 (e.g. 1 2 4 or 6 1 3)  
  • 5: three different numbers with differences 2 -> 1 (e.g. 1 3 4 or 5 1 2) 
  • 6: all of the remaining combinations (e.g. 1 1 1 or 1 4 4 or 1 3 5)

Second die:

1) if the first die is 1 to 5, you can easily choose the "first" number in the sequence as your second die - for example from 5 6 1 you will choose 5 because the sequence is with differences 1 and 1. And from 6 1 1 you will choose 6 cause it's a sequence with a difference of 1.
2) if the first die is 6, well, you will have to split the choices:  
  • 1 is 1 4 4 and 1 1 4 
  • 2 is 2 5 5 and 2 2 5 
  • 3 is 3 6 6 and 3 3 6 
  • 4 is 2 4 6 
  • 5 is 1 3 5 
  • 6 is 1 1 1, 2 2 2, 3 3 3, 4 4 4, 5 5 5, 6 6 6 

There might be more elegant solutions but I think the above is fairly easy to remember overall. You need to remember only the combinations with 6 as first die.

[2:04 PM] hellraiser: sigurno
[2:04 PM] erejnion: ama ne e kato da znam osobeno za teatura back then
[2:06 PM] hellraiser: The German Expressionist movement was initially confined to Germany due to the isolation the country experienced during World War I. In 1916, the government had banned foreign films. The demand from theaters to generate films led to an increase in domestic film production from 24 films in 1914 to 130 films in 1918. With inflation also on the rise, Germans were attending films more freely because they knew that their money's value was constantly diminishing.
[2:06 PM] erejnion: that's a weird consequence
[2:06 PM] hellraiser: i ne pishe nishto za samiq stil

Yet another chat spam

[1:58 PM] hellraiser: reminds me of that thing with messatsu from Muramasa 
[1:58 PM] erejnion: ? 
[1:59 PM] hellraiser: it was some word to describe the curse 
[1:59 PM] hellraiser: MC and his imouto used armors that are the strongest in the world
[1:59 PM] hellraiser: but everytime they kill an enemy a curse would force them to kill someone they like 
[1:59 PM] erejnion: ... 
[1:59 PM] erejnion: wow 
[1:59 PM] hellraiser: the imouto was just going on a rampage around Japan 
[2:00 PM] hellraiser: trying to summon some god and kill him so she can overwrite destiny or smtn like that 
[2:00 PM] hellraiser: and fuck her father 
[2:00 PM] hellraiser: the twist was that MC is her father and brother at the same time 
[2:00 PM] erejnion: yeah 
[2:00 PM] erejnion: sounds like it's Japanese alright 
[2:00 PM] hellraiser: my favorite part is when she fights the main girl 
[2:01 PM] hellraiser: and they destroy the moon 
[2:04 PM] hellraiser: the imouto had also not even once activated the curse despite having murdered dozens of people and she only got close to acknowledging someone as an enemy when fighting the main girl 
[2:04 PM] hellraiser: not sure what the moral there was 
[2:05 PM] erejnion: being a psychopath is better than being an extremist 
[2:05 PM] hellraiser: fuck 
[2:05 PM] hellraiser: I think that's it 
[2:06 PM] hellraiser: first girl was an obsessed justicefag and got proven wrong by getting attacked by a crazy rapist's fucktoys who loved him 
[2:06 PM] hellraiser: second girl was obsessed with killing MC for vengeance and in her route they end up killing each other because she got fucked by falling in love 
[2:06 PM] hellraiser: 3rd girl just wanted to see the world burn and dying in her ending is also her goal 
[2:06 PM] hellraiser: sasuga onee-sama 
[2:07 PM] hellraiser: hasn't even read the game 
[2:07 PM] erejnion: yay 
[2:08 PM] hellraiser: main girl was boring with almost zero personality tho

Lupin Part 5

[11:10 PM] erejnion: final verdict on Part 5: the people saying it's better than Part 4 are idiots. 
[11:11 PM] erejnion: whole episodes of absolutely nothing 
[11:12 PM] erejnion: annoying contrivances and denigrating the main cast for the sake of prolonging the plot 
[11:13 PM] erejnion: in a show like Lupin where you know that the core dynamics between the main four is never gonna change trying to bait the audience with change is just stupid 
[11:13 PM] erejnion: baiting with addition is fine; that's a staple for long running shows 
[11:13 PM] erejnion: but with change? eh. 
[11:13 PM] erejnion: also no Rebecca 
[11:13 PM] erejnion: Rebecca was a perfect addition 
[11:14 PM] erejnion: complementing the main cast in a perfect way 
[11:15 PM] erejnion: Ami did her own thing without touching on what the main cast did; Rebecca synergized with the main cast. 
[11:16 PM] erejnion: but really, it could have been a fine season even with the lack of Rebecca if just all of the arcs were done in 1 episode each.
