    I thought their license expired on it which is why there hasn't been a BD release of it?

    RIP Kikuchi.

    It's been a little over a year since Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045 premiered and we haven't seen any hint or interest in continuing where it left us hanging. Guess that says everything about it :dunce .

    Since, I felt like watching a really old anime. I decided I would watch Uchuu Senkan Yamato again. It is still very good even after 2199 came out.

    Stumbled into the 2006 mecha anime that's totally not Gundam seed, Giniro no Olynsis: Tokito. On Episode 2 and kinda feel like I know what the ending is already and who Tea actually is.

    Mamoru Oshii: "Hideaki Anno is More of a Producer Than a Director These Days" - Interest - Anime News Network

    According to Oshii, Anno is "more of a producer than a director." While Oshii has no interest whatsoever in the business side of anime and only wants to focus on whatever he himself is making, Anno is more engaged with that side. Oshii said that he thinks that it suits him quite well.

    On the other hand, because of this difference in outlook, Oshii remarked that Anno's works "lack a theme." He praised the visual aspects of Anno's directing style, but said that there was no theme being expressed underneath the style.

    "Expression and themes are different things," he said. "Avant-garde presentation or giving birth to a new presentation style isn't the same thing as a theme." He said that, perhaps because he and Hayao Miyazaki belong to an older generation of filmmakers, the two of them are always thinking about what they want to express whenever they create films. In his own case, he creates films so that he can "pick a fight with society," and he believes that Miyazaki does the same even if he claims to create films for children to enjoy.

    Oshii also remarked that Anno's limitations are shared by Mamoru Hosoda and Makoto Shinkai, whose works also "lack a main theme." "To put it a different way, I can't feel the fundamental motivation they have for creating films," he said.

    At the same time, he said that he does not mean his comments about Anno as necessarily a criticism. He described most of Anno's works as "like an I-Novel (confessional novel about personal feelings)", so that no matter what he does he remains true to himself. The question is more about whether one can accept that approach or not.

    Watched an OVA series from the 90s called Kyou Kara Ore Wa (it translates to something like “Starting Today, It’s My Turn”). It’s more or less a delinquent fighting show with some comedic elements.


    There are only 10 episodes (though they vary in length from 37 to 60 mins), and unfortunately it doesn’t really have an ending, just kinda ‘stopping’ instead. I read that it only adapts like a third of the source material, so it’s a shame they never tried to give it a real conclusion (since there’s no way it’s getting one now).


    For what it is, it’s a decently fun time. Mitsuhashi isn’t always the easiest to like, and his development certain feels like a casualty of there being no ending, but I can see people getting a lot out of the 90s aesthetic and fist fights if those elements tickle their fancy.

    Watched Jujutsu Kaisen on netflix. Pretty good, although it can be boiled down to a mashup of Naruto's formula and the second half of YuYu Hakusho. Not surprising, I guess, since all three were Shonen Jump comics originally.
