    Way too broad of a description to pinpoint.

    shhh.

    It's called Senki Zesshou Symphogear. You should watch that for sure.


    Too broad & most likely a lie, just go to anichart.net & look for anything that looks like it, or just find whatever looks interesting and watch it.
    Probably the usual overhypers, My Hero Academy or Attack on Titan though.

    There's at least 12 or so shows that I'll be watching next season, so I'm looking forward to that after this lackluster spring.
    Did not know that Jahy-Sama or Battle after 5 seconds were getting shows, they should be interesting.

    I think I hate every character in Infinite Ryvius so far. I have 8 episodes left to watch, but I don’t think that’ll change things.

    I was watching more Symphogear GX. I love the Ignite Module upgrade. I love the voice they used for Dainsleif. Shirabe and Kirika are so cute and funny. They work so well off each other. I might be a bit biased on Shirabe.

    If you like the device audio in Symphogear, wait 'til you get a load of the Intelligent Devices in Nanoha. The transformation devices there actually have a bit of a personality on them, and they're pretty badass. Kevin J. England's British accent flaring up any time Fate casts a spell sounds sublime. And then in the sequel series, Tetsuya Kakihara (Simon in Gurren Lagann) joins the cast to add some German flare to the enemy Armed Devices.

    Zack Snyder Open to Directing Dragon Ball Z or Anime Movie



    "I would consider that. I mean, if it came right." Snyder began, "But definitely, I would do an anime remake or live-action. That would be fun because I love animation, and I watch a ton of anime with my kid who’s too young to watch it but we watch anyway (laughs)."

    By the sounds of his answer, he's not entirely against the idea of directing an anime film rather than make something purely live-action.

    Heck yeah! That would be perfect. That’s the one man I would trust with live action anime. I’ve been saying that since Suckerpunch and then even more with Man of Steel, his action is so perfect for that!

    And when Man of Steel premiered almost everybody said Supes and Zod's fight was like a Dragon Ball fight, so you know he could pull off a fight scene in such scale.

    But then again, it's up the the script.

    Supposedly the final battle in Man of Steel was inspired by the fight amidst the ruined building in the final episode of Birdy the Mighty: Decode 02.

    I don't know the source of that claim, but it's been floated for quite some time.

    The scope of each fight is way different, of course, but I can see some similarities in the gritty physicality of each sequence, as well as the three-dimentionality of the fight.

    Currently, just get started to rewatch Mobile Suit Victory Gundam, and... it's quite obvious that chronologically, the events of the first 5 episodes are all over the place. For some reason, the chronological order of the first 4 episodes was rearranged in a way that was kinda confusing to understand.

    Here, it starts with what is chronologically episode 4, and flashes back in episode 2 — the second, third, and fourth episodes are chronologically the first, second, and third.

    I do aware that this is just a change due to executive meddlings that wanted the Gundam to show up ASAP but considering how the episodes are re-ordered makes the story at the first 5 episodes feel more like "you arrived at the theater 15 min late for a movie, and have to rewatch the beginning", it wasn't the best decision as the story of Victory starts off slow, and taking 3 episodes to just get to where we are in episode 1 is a bit of a slog. At least if they were in the right order we wouldn't know all this time what was happening later.

    The problem was that the beginning of the story was just told in flashbacks, rather than presented to us in a more organic way so we could learn the details along the way. Ultimately, I think it should have been presented chronologically; With Uso started out defending his homeland with the Zanscare mobile suit that he accidentally hijacked, before moving his way to formally join the League Militaire and pilot the Gundam.

    The worst part is I actually tried watching the episodes in proper order and it made it even more confusing.

    Yeah, even watching it in its supposedly chronological order is also just as confusing, with Shakti monologing the events as like a "flashback" in a shoved-in way.

    TBF, they really should just not even bother with the "flashback" in their attempt to cover up the out-of-order approach, and just begin the story in the chronological order that it should've been; because the out-of-order approach added nothing to the story, and having the titular Gundam shoe up early wasn't a worthy trade-off for the bizarre chronological order for the first 4 episode story-wise.

    Yep. Thank the gods Victory gets incredibly once you get past that initial joke.
