Terraformars Episodes 1-3

Terraformars Episodes 1-3

It’s just like when a cockroach avoids a human’s first blow.

-AkariHizamaru

Attack on TItan

It’s the next Attack on TItan! I don’t mean that Terraformars is going to be as popular as Attack on Titan or that the stories are the same. I mean that the atmosphere and tone of both series are similar, but I digress.

1The story is set up as follows: in the 21st century, humans send mold and cockroaches to Mars in an attempt to terraform it. The plan was to have the mold absorb the sunlight and purify the atmosphere. The mold would provide nourishment to the cockroaches whose corpses would spread the mold. After 500 years, the first expedition is sent to mars, but they are killed by giant mutated cockroaches that are given the name “Terraformars.”

This Censoring

A second expedition is sent with the purpose of exterminating the cockroaches, but they are defeated with only two survivors returning to Earth. A third expeditions is formed with soldiers who have undergone a special surgery with only a 30% survival rate to give them superhuman powers. On top of all of this, a disease coined “Mars Virus” has been spreading across the world. It is the expedition’s mission to research the virus. Could it be connected to the mutated cockroaches?

Come on…..

Like I said earlier, this has a very Shingeki no Kyoujin air to it in that the tone of the work is very somber and life-or-death. The first episode was very slow, but shit hits the fan in the second episode, and it continues like that through the third. I am digging the desperation of the situation; however, the censorship is killing me. It’s censorship is as even worse than Tokyo Ghoul, and it kills the sense of dread. It causes a disconnect between the viewer and the characters. I am definitely looking forward to the Blu-ray release for this show.

3

The character designs are very realistic looking, and I am glad to see that it has taken a mature route. All of the characters are older and to have them drawn in a traditional anime style would have been very jarring. In terms of the art, I draw similarities to Zetman. One thing that doesn’t sit well with me is how everything seems to be white-washed. There seems to always been an over-saturation of light, and it takes away from the finer details of the animation.

4

Terraformars is a series that I am enjoying thoroughly, and I suggest anyone who enjoys action, violence, and gore watch it.  Come on, a Terraformars rips a guy’s head off and then beats two people with it. My only real complaint is the censoring, and as you can tell from the pictures, it is heavy. If this is going to bother you, I would wait for the uncut release.

Sword Art Online II Episode 10

Sword Art Online II Episode 10

This….This is my battle, and no one else’s!

-Sinon

Hey guys, its time for my favorite character from SAO and this season to be completely ruined! Seriously though, I am a huge fan of Sinon’s character, because I think she is broken, and I want to see her grow and find herself; conversely, SAO just wants to turn her into another waste of a female character, but I digress.

With Sinon still on the ground paralyzed from a shot from Death Gun’s handgun, it seems all but certain that she is about to die. The facade that she has painted up until this point, knowing that the virtual world of Gun Gale Online was all make-believe, has come crashing down around her now that she knows Death Gun can kill for real. It is interesting because Sinon was able to function in GGO because it was an MMORPG, fantasy world; however, now it isn’t any different from the real world. Hopefully, she will be able to use these experiences with Death Gun to overcome her past ordeals.

Sword Art Online II Episode 10

Seriously though, did anyone think that Sinon was really going to die? At the last second, Kirito saves the day! Of course….Sinon becomes another damsel-in-distress and is left helpless to be rescued by Kirito. I was really hoping that her character would actually be strong and independent, but it turns out SAO continues to create female characters that need to latch on to Kirito.

Kirito and Sinon jump on a motorized tripod and flee from Death Gun as he chases after them. In this scene, Sinon is unable to overcome her fear of death or fire her gun. This is because she is now just as helpless in-game as she is in real life; however, Kirito lends some of his strength to Sinon, she is able to fire her gun, and they escape—oh and by the way, that car chase was off the hook! for related information, visit : http://www.ibtimes.com/sword-art-online-hollow-realization-coming-west-2016-2242101

Wishing to avoid the 15 minute satellite scan, the two gamers hole up in a cave while catching their breath and strategizing. An interesting point that I thought of was how, once again, Kirito is playing a game to the death. Through their conversation, Sinon is finally able to admit to herself that Kirito is a good person; when she tells him they could kill each other in-game to avoid being murdered by Death Gun, he refuses because he does not wish to let anyone else die. I am hoping that Sinon can stop putting on the tsundere act and become a normal character.

It is obvious during this final scene that Sinon is a weak, broken character dealing with a lot of emotional stress, but I do not want to see her throw a fit and feel sorry for herself; instead, I want to see her overcome her past ordeals. All I see in this scene is Sinon being pissed at Kirito for no apparent reason, but she may have just needed to release some pent-up stress; because, at the end, each is able to tell the other that they have killed people and connect at an emotional level. (I hope Asuna isn’t watching)

Wasn’t feeling this episode too much: it was boring, slow, and ruined Sinon’s character. I am hoping that after this, Sinon will overcome her fears completely. What do you guys think? Are you happy with Sinon’s characterization in this episode, or was her whining a complete turnoff? Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to subscribe by RSS or email.

Saber Marionette J To X Review

Synopsis

Otaru and his friends have helped to bring peace to Japoness, but sometimes peace can bring its own challenges. As a new threat emerges, the Marionettes must learn to deal with their human emotions in a world that does not fully understand them.

Review

Set after the events of the Saber Marionette J series, Saber Marionette J to X does a good job of preserving the flow of events from the original series. The story starts a bit more slowly this time, focusing on the everyday events of Otaru and the girls, exposing some of the conflicts that have developed in their tightly-knit ?family?. In fact, most of this series deals with elements regarding relationships, emotional struggles, and self-discovery in some way or another. The new threat does not begin to emerge until the show is well under way.

Although some of the issues raised by Otaru, Bloodberry, Cherry, and Lime are thought-provoking, the dialogue is a bit stiff and often borders on juvenile. The philosophical aspects of the show don?t feel forced, however, since the concept of machines with human emotions is integral to the story.

The Saber Marionettes are all vying for Otaru?s affection, and Otaru?s dogmatic commitment to love them all equally doesn?t satisfy anyone. They desperately want to be treated as individuals, and when they all lose their memories and become separated, they are able to discover that they can all make it on their own. Otaru also learns how much he has taken for granted, and sets out to prove his devotion by finding them.

Although all the principal characters are still instantly recognizable, the animation style has changed significantly from the original series. Most notably, the characters faces are somewhat more squat and childlike, which takes some getting used to. The colors are also much more vivid and the lines much darker, extremely so. The action scenes are well-done, but there don?t seem to be nearly as many as the original series. Overall, I felt it was a step down from the darker, grittier original. This is especially noticeable in some of the flashbacks, which use footage taken directly from Saber Marionette J.

It also seems that the comedy was not as effective this time around. There were actually more comedic elements, but it often wasn?t as natural or satisfying. This is not to say that it was unfunny, as the show does a reasonable job of incorporating humor overall, and there were several quite funny moments. for more information click on : http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-12-28/saber-marionette-j-last-story-video-anime-green-lit-for-2016/.97000

Although fans of the previous series will be the most-likely audience, knowledge of the original series is not a prerequisite. Quite a bit of back-story and explanatory dialogue is provided, which could be fatiguing to die-hard fans, but may provide a needed refresher course on the world of Terra II for more casual viewers.

Like Saber Marionette J, J to X succeeds in covering a variety of real issues, without wallowing in offensive material. Friendship, selfishness, sacrifice, love, and loyalty are all portrayed by the characters in a sympathetic and believable manner, without becoming too melodramatic. As such, I would recommend this as a good choice for younger viewers. click here to read more about animation.

Conclusion

Saber Marionette J to X follows closely in the wake of its predecessor, but there are some significant differences. While the quality of several aspects has dwindled to some extent, fans of the original series will certainly be satisfied to find out what happened to their favorite characters. Viewers will benefit most by having some background from the original series, but it?s not necessary to follow the plot in J to X. Those looking for a sci-fi series that focuses on human/robot interactions in a more cheerful manner than most will appreciate this series.

Laputa: Castle In The Sky Review

Laputa: Castle In The Sky Review

Synopsis

When young boy Pazu finds a girl named Sheeta falling from the sky, he is taken on an amazing adventure to the floating city of Laputa, where he must stop the evil Muska from becoming the new king.

Review

I first remember watchngLaputa when I was very young. It appeared on TV and I was instantly transfixed to it. Now, after all these years, I can finally watch it whenever I want to, and if you haven’t yet seen it either, I suggest you do as well. This is one film you’ll want to watch again and again. click here for more review.

The plot is extremely well thought out, without being too overly complicated. You will be instantly drawn into the story, and there is always some new element added throughout that’ll keep you interested.

Laputa features some of the best characters I’ve seen in an animated film. From Pazu to Muska to Dola, every single character has their own personality, but the bond between Sheeta and Pazu really shines, and you grow a real fondness for them both.

Laputa: Castle In The Sky Review

You even feel sympathetic for the robots. These emotionless beings still seem to possess a personality about them, and although they only communicate through a series of beeps, you somehow know what they’re trying to say. Not many films can pull off giving a personality to a lifeless being well, but Studio Ghibli have done it superbly.

For the time that Laputa was made, the amount of detail that has been put in is astonishing. From the beautifully detailed city of Laputa, right down to little intricate details that don’t concern the story, everything has been maticulously designed, and some of the scenes are truly awe-inspiring.

There was three different voice-actors that were used for Laputa. The subbed versions voice-actors are believable. Pazu’sboistrous and courageous attitude really comes through, and everyone else’s voice fits their character. The Disney dubbed version is less than spectacular. Sheeta sounds way too old for what she should be, and most of the other voices are sub-par at best. There was a second dubbed version released, which I saw when I was very young, and out of all three, this was the best version in my opinion. But for some reason, I cannot seem to find that version anywhere at all, which is a shame. for related review visit : http://www.noisejunkies.net/saber-marionette-j-to-x-review/

The musical score is also fantastic, with mostly melodramatic piano pieces throughout, but will suddenyl shift to a strong string section for the more intense scenes of the film, which really adds to the whole atmosphere of the film.

Conclusion

Laputa will always hold a special place in my heart, and is still one of the best Ghibli films ever made. Do yourself a favour and watch this film, you won’t be disappointed.
