Finally done! It wasn’t a hard costume, just slow going. He hates the braces but if there are things to do and things to see, he forgets he hates them.

Hello! Richard wonders if it is time to let a little anime into my life. I trust no one else, other than you to steer me in the right direction. You know my aesthetic and my fears, where should I begin?

Oh god - this is so exciting and a bit terrifying for me, I stress about recs I really do. But I’m more excited! I love anime, I love animation, it is fun story telling stuff. 

Okay, first off a few questions:

  • Do you wanna dive into something new and shiny or are you comfortable with something maybe a bit more dated?
  • Are you seeking, for your first anime, something light or do you want to dive into the more intense side the form has to offer (not necessarily heavy philosophical/deeeeep stuff but more along the lines of aesthetics and emotion)?
  • Any idea if you’d like to do something genre or try something more “normal” (but it is anime so normal is still pretty strange). 

Initially I have a few things I’d recommend for you to give a few episode trial period but I don’t want to assume what I think you’d like is what you’re expecting from the anime. 

*twinkling star eyes*

Dated is good.   Then I can have the joy of watching anime  evolve and change.  Besides, great things came out of previous years…as well we know.

I do like Big Feels and character but for my first anime, perhaps i don’t want to get distracted by too much ‘visual clutter’ just yet, however beautiful it may be. But don’t rule it out completely. Especially rainbows. I love rainbows.

Similarly, don’t worry about Strange. I like magic and sparkles and  manipulative spells. I quite like ancient  mysticsm and old trees and elves and shit.

Thanks for this, -  don’t feel too pressured. If it doesn’t work out I’ll just never try anything new ever again and treat all recommendations from humans as suspicious in the future. -  Only joking! I’m having a mid life crisis and am so up for New Things all the Time!

Alright, here we go! I’m going to give a fair amount of suggestions as ultimately your first anime should be ~yours~. Each title is given a link so you can check out what the show looks and feels like. 

{ OLDER ANIME }

The Rose of Versailles (Berusaiyu no Bara,1979) A girl raised as a boy! Nobels and palace guards! Social upheaval! Melodrama and Marie Antoinette! Old but still enthralling and oddly addicting. 

Creamy Mami (Magical Angel Creamy Mami, 1983) Magical Girls are my life blood! D< but that doesn’t mean you gotta watch this one, although it has that 80s cartoon charm with being over the top and cute while also serving up some nice characters and episodic plots. A young girl is granted magic for a year and winds up, of course, becoming a pop idol sensation! Her talking cats companions help her as she crushes on a friend who only has eyes for her alter ego. 

Dirty Pair (1985) Scantly clad trouble consultants of the future who help solve problems but always end up somehow making a mess. Great characters, great fun, nothing too heavy or hard to deal with here. 

{ 90s ANIME }

Nadia Secret of Blue Water (1990) High sea faring adventure that blurs the lines between fantasy and science fiction expertly. Fully realized in design and in world building with a very strong female lead usual within the realm of Japanese media. Has a Studio Ghibli vibe with memorable characters and fairly consistent quality animation. 

Dear Brother… (Oniisama e…, 1991) This is for the Eastender lover in you. Melodrama! Relationships! Betrayal! Things get intense at an all girl’s school. The visuals of this series adheres to the more strict of the shojo style (so expect roses, shiny eyes, and dramatic cues) but has a rough patch that doesn’t shy away from them more glaring teenage girl issues (eating disorders, taboo love, bullying). Sometimes soulful, some times wacky, always a ride.   

His and Hers Circumstances (Kare Kano, 1998) A beautiful show with a lovely story; young romance and coming of age. Visually this series is ripe with metaphors and leaps back and forth from using still panels straight from the manga, basic cell work, and fluid and seamless animation for the emotional spectrum. A large cast boasting of steady character development with light humor, His and Hers is simply a treat.    

{ NEW ANIME }

Emma (2005) In Victorian London at the end of the 19th century, Emma is a maid who falls in love with a member of the gentry. And so the social struggle begins. Emma is perfection but I like slow and subtle. A lot of folks find the show boring but I there is a undeniable charm to the pacing and slow introduction of a large cast of characters. Wonderful musical score as well. 

Paradise Kiss (2005) A popular series about a hard working student to falls into the world of fashion after being scouted by a group of fashion students. A shojo series that doesn’t fall as drastically into the style of the genre but works to create an atmosphere inspired more by punk and synth music than idolized romance. Interesting cast, wonderful design, great soundtrack. 

Nodame Cantabile (2006) Two classical musicians paths cross and their lives become entangled as they work on perfecting their craft. AMAZING character development with a humorous bent. 

{ FILM }

Wolf Children (Okami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki, 2012) Oh my god, please watch this so I have someone to sob with. It isn’t sad because of tragedy but rather the struggle of being, and inevitable result of, parenting. Every child is a wolf child, we’re all making it up as we go trying to find a balance between guiding children without stifling who they are and what they want to become. Very powerful stuff.   

Steamboy (2004) A big film in the rise of steampunk from legendary manga and anime guru Katsuhiro Otomo. Absolutely stunning piece of animation.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006) a story about responsibility, power, and the trouble with running away from your problems. Heart wrenching in the best way possible and based on a popular story that is constantly being retold throughout Japanese media every few years.

# Lee # IGNORE ME 

What I’m most impressed by, though, is how this episode gets you to identify so thoroughly with Lester—then immediately removes that identification once he kills his wife because she dared insult him. It’s a tough trick to play, and I’m not precisely sure how Hawley and Bernstein manage it (short of the fact that, y’know, killing your wife because she’s mean to you is the wrong choice in most circumstances). Here’s my best stab at it: When Lester impulsively conks Pearl on the head with the hammer, we immediately cut to a point-of-view shot of her face, frozen in horror, then watch as blood starts to trickle down it. Bernstein is suggesting, subtly, that we, who have been invited to identify with Lester because we’ve all felt picked on by the Sam Hesses of the world, or felt diminished by those we’ve loved, are the ones who’ve perpetrated this crime in some way—perhaps by wishing it would happen within this fictional context. Then, just as quickly, we’re outside of that point-of-view, watching Lester’s hammer swing through the air to connect with his wife over and over, and then we’re just watching him—not even his face—hunch over Pearl as he hits her again and again. We go from being Lester, to seeing the true horror of his actions from an angle that has him swinging toward the camera (and, by extension, us), to an angle that cuts out his face and dehumanizes him. The sequence asks us if we, ourselves, would be capable of something like this, answers “yes” in no uncertain terms, then removes us from Lester to see if we can recognize the gravity of what he’s done. It’s crafty stuff.

TV critic Todd VanDerWerff’s excellent analysis of *THAT* scene in Fargo. Via his review in AV Club (via fxfargo)

I’m terrified of a lot people’s reactions toward Lester (a lot of viewers are oddly rooting for him either because of a failure to recognize what the show is trying to, not so explicitly, say or because they like the Martin Freemans). Lorne Malvo and Lester as prodded by him are not the people to root for. They’re interesting as characters in a black comedy mini series but they are also gorilla posturing violent men. One is of a cultivated appearance and demeanor who makes a living off provoking and harming others, and one a man whose biggest fear is being laughed at and disrespected. The most shocking part of the basement scene is the fact Lester actually hits his wife with a hammer, he murders her over something entirely trivial when a day ago he was using their 18 year marriage as leverage in a conversation.  Just because we are given some POV time with him as an audience doesn’t mean we’re suppose to forgive him murdering his wife. It’s Walter White all over again. The internet needs to get it’s shit together.

I am so over people thinking that Leis look like this:

A lei takes hard time and vigorous work. We (Hawaiians) wake up at the crack of dawn to gather whats needed to make the lei that we want. It can take hours or days to make the leis and Hawaiian’s make leis with only good intentions and love because they believe that if you make a lei with malicious intent it will come out into the lei. There is many different ways to make leis and we also make leis from shells and feathers. It isn’t only Hawai’i that makes leis but throughout Polynesia fellow Polynesians make leis in their own style. 

To call the above image a lei is disrespectful to my culture and I want that shit to stop. That isn’t a lei, the images in the photoset are leis.

spookytanuki:

In Dragon Ball Z, they would always fight during the daytime on beautiful sunny days.

Like, no matter what was at stake, they didn’t fight at night or during inclement weather.

Hmm… Pretty sure Gohan and Piccolo fought at night. And Trunks and Perfect Cell. Any giant monkey stuff was at night too. Did Bardock fight in the rain? He might have.

But thats all I got! Dragon Ball had more night time stuff (because it is superior, shhh it’s true).
