What dose /a/ think of Gainax's first attempt at a tv series? Is it a good show despite how it drags it's ass toward the middle there?
>Then i actually watch the show and she is a vapid, self righteous, unlikable bitch.
I'm usually the last person to get my hate on for a character but fuck Naida. Jean being such nice guy just made her look that much worse by contrast.
Some anon made a thread about it a week or so ago, and I picked it up.
I bit off more than I could chew.
Well, it was more or less just about whether he should pick it up or not rather than actual discussion. Its probably safe to assume that a large majority of /a/ hasn't seen it.
What really killed her for me was that Africa arc right before the end. She spends 30+ episodes in love with Jean, then just forgets about him and goes for the new guy on the block.
If you can overlook the dreadful "Island episodes", Nadia is one of the few masterpiece TV anime series.
I'd say it was Anno's greatest "series" work.
As for his greatest work period, my vote goes to Aim for the Top! Gunbuster.
>Island and Africa arc were noncanon
They were the 2 most boring arcs in my opinion. Africa was by far the worst.
>Gainax is entry level
Not sure, but I see a lot of people who only watch things post 2005. They can't stand the "shit" quality unless its highly praised/discussed like Eva.
I've gone into it very in-depth in other threads and don't feel like talking about it again. I thought Diebuster was a lot better, is the bottom line.
I think Eva is Anno's best work, yes. I also don't particularly love anything he's done.
I'm conflicted about it. I don't know if I'd say I liked it better than Gunbuster or not; it has a lot of aspects I don't like about it. But from a critical standpoint, yes, I think Honneamise is the better work.
I'm currently watching it and I like it a lot.
The direction is top notch and the character interactions are well executed, as expected of the master.
I think I just got to the infamous island arc, though, so we'll see how it goes from here.
I too picked out quite a lot scenes where mouths would move and they weren't talking or they were talking and their mouth wasn't moving. I just got used to it after a while.
The first 10 or 15 episodes where they just explored the world were my favorites.
Yea, it was pretty dry. I was wondering why it seemed that Nadia didn't fit her character almost that whole arc, but now I know why.
>I think I just got to the infamous island arc, though, so we'll see how it goes from here.
Just watch it like i did. It's worth sitting through to see that bit where Jean thinks he struck oil.
I was already impressed that Anno was pushing his expansion fetish even before Magma Diver.
>I've gone into it very in-depth in other threads and don't feel like talking about it again. I thought Diebuster was a lot better, is the bottom line.
Why should anyone bother to listen to your opinion now if you're not going to elaborate on it?
I wasn't asking you to listen to it. I made a statement that I did not think Gunbuster was very good. It doesn't really require explaining.
You could stop responding any time, anon!
