Damn kids!

Also, the Saints Row scene isn't really a Transformers parody, it just uses an awesome song.

Trufax: I was using the classic rock station in the game and The Touch started playing as I picked up my first superpower. It was fantastic.

Your next Evangelion is going to be FOSS powered - Khara is switching to Blender for future projects:
https://entertainment.slashdot.org/story/19/08/16/2113234/anime-studio-khara-is-planning-to-use-open-source-blender-software
https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-08-18/khara-to-completely-switch-to-blender-open-source-3d-software-after-evangelion-3.0-1.0/.150173

Apparently even all the Evangelion cash cow funds are not enough to cover the new 3DS Max licensing subscription fees, now that Autodesk is on the "on the cloud" train of greed that Adobe started. Plus, looks like Blender has now upped their game on the 2D animation department, and looks like Khara thinks it's Good Enough to trust their future to it.

(They still seem have a plan C for when Blender is not enough, and that's... Unity?! Yes, Unity, the game engine - you can now make cartoons with it too)

So my internet is out, for a few days(we apparently actually broke ATT's database). On the upside, the time I'm not spending dicking about online I can spend produotively!
...
Or I can watch animes I downloaded and never got around to instead.


Today: "Gamers!".

I expected a bunch of jokes about retro PS2 games. Instead I get a romantic comedy where everyone canonically has no idea how relationships work. Seriously, an entire episode was dedicated to all the characters trying to sort out the potential ramifications of a multidimensional love polygon that only exists in their mind. It was funnier than it had a right to be.

And I've decided to watch Crest of the Stars.

I saw part of it roughly a century ago, but all I remember about it is "space elves in spandex".
So far, they seem fond of talking. I might be in for a long and boring ride.

So far, they seem fond of talking. I might be in for a long and boring ride.


Most of a month later, I'm actually settling in and WATCHING the show instead of declaring my intent to do so and then watching just the first episode.
Wordswordswordswordswords sums things up nicely so far. But not in a boring way. I'm only a few episodes in and our hero, Jinto, is very much just a fish out of water at this point so they've basically spent three episodes explaining the Abh(and chasing down a purse-snatcher, and doing establishing shots of a space fleet).


The most notable thing, really, is that the animation is a lot less dynamic than I remember. The show is very fond of high-framerate pans or zooms over large static images to create an illusion of high-framerate animation. (Don't get me wrong, this is vastly preferable to stationary shots of frame-size static images)
Combined with a tendency to overlay two images on top of each other or deploying nineties computer image manipulation instead of properly animating a transition, it gives the show a unique look. Not a particularly dynamic look, but one that works well most of the time. And the cheapness of the cinematography does not extend to the actual illustration quality. Characters are well-animated, and backgrounds are consistently well-drawn.

...

Also, the space elf uniforms are not nearly as flattering as I remember. I will blame that on an artifact of the era's viewing technology called "I was a teenager".

Having now finished Crest of the Stars, I actually like it quite a bit. Later episodes mostly eschew the "long pan over a static image" in favor of something actually animated.

What I really enjoy, though, is small details included in the setting. Things like the laser pistols having a low-power wide-angle setting so they can be used as flashlights.
Or when Lafiel tells Jinto that you can't actually dodge a laser in space because by the time you see it firing, you're hit.
It feels grounded in a way most sci-fi doesn't.


Do I like it enough to immediately leap into Banner of the Stars? No, but mostly that's just because I've got a diffrent franchise gnawing at my attention right now. Not one suited for this thread, though.

I remember long pans from Master Keaton, and especially Figure 17 with its gorgeous watercolor panoramas of Hokkaido. People might not remember it if all they were watching back then was action series like Dragonball... A modern example is Kill la Kill.

This does not actually go there and I regret nothing.
