    A Place Further Than the Universe is really good so far, might be a sleeper hit.

    Amakusa Shiro has been in a lot of anime including Rurouni Kenshin (the later fillers though lol) and his real story is very interesting. If you know the story his actions in the anime make a loooot more sense. If you don't know, the tl;dr is that there was an enclave of Christians back when Christianity was banned in the Edo period and they took this young kid, Amakusa Shiro, to be the 2nd coming of Jesus. He took on that role and led the colony to an ultimate defeat after a long holdout against the shogun's army (supposedly they were betrayed by someone who defected from the colony), and Amakusa's head was displayed on a pike. The fact he looks like other characters is just recycling; it's the same reason Saber's model is used for half the other spirits lol. That part bugs me too though


    The character overload syndrome is definitely helped by the fact that we already know most if not all of the names and backstories of the characters already. But I agree, there were times I was like "wait, who's red again?"
    Oh I read up on the character a bit and already knew a bit just irks me. I fully was hoping for someone to come out and tell me people die if they are killed.

    I mean you and might know alot of the characters but I'd feel alot of viewers wouldn't outside of a few more mainstream ones especially compared to the others if only cause we saw them a bunch. Oh well was still a fun ride and got some heavens feel on the way

    Devilman crybaby Ep 5-10(End)

    This is incredible. Super stylized, weird and really gross. I'm happy This is a full adaptation of the original work, and it will be interesting to see the reactions with final two episodes who never read the manga.

    I'm just glad Netflix is actually airing it at a relevant time, if they could do that with all releases it would be great. But even just doing weekly releases would help (they do it for some shows, so...idk).

    Super looking forward to seeing this after work and several drinks.

    I knew some would either hate or dislike it but...

    Spoiler: show

    Now you know were Evangelion got it's ending from. Hideaki Anno was heavily influenced with Devilman manga ending.

    Man, the art is really killing it for me. Got half way through the 2nd episode, and the story seems like it might be alright, but I'm gonna have to take a break.

    Recently found the soundtrack to Devilman Crybaby, got to say this track is full of dem feels when you listen to it, especially if you've seen the show.

    Well Devilman is fucking depressing but I loved it. Even though the demon run looked fucking stupid it still made me laugh uncontrollably when I saw it.

    I'm just happy there are more episodes. I kinda thought this would be the last.

    Still half a season to go! I dunno where the anime will end and whether or not the manga is finished either. Wouldn't mind seeing the story come to it's proper conclusion. That or get a 3rd season lol

    Yeeeeeah, Devilman ending was just kinda wuuuuuuuuuuut.

    Spoiler: show
    Part of me feels like they might've gotten halfway through the series, realized they were basically sitting on a trainwreck, and decided to go ham with the bad ending.

    Miki didn't deserve that, though.

    Half way through what? The original manga is like 5 volumes and really short so it's not like there are any surprises. And while they changed stuff here and there basically everyone who dies in the anime dies in the manga, and the manga ends basically the exact same way.

    And Miki always goes out like that, sadly.


    I just don't think most people were ready for this. If the manga was made in this day and age the ending would have been totally different and everything would have been fine. This is the manga that inspired a lot of dark fantasy works while not being a deconstruction or parody.

    Length of the source material or it even being some kind of trailblazer back in the day isn't really my concern here.

    Spoiler: show
    Personally, if we found out there were demons, aliens, or even freakin' gnomes in our dryer that steal our socks, I highly doubt the world would go to shit that swiftly and easily. The concepts of fears and irrationality were pretty much jacked up to 11 with conveniently hilarious plot points like Russians making the demons so let's go nuke 'em. Oh, and fleet leaders have been demonized, but no one noticed them looking/acting differently.

    Ryo being Satan (with tits?!) might've rationalized some of his behavior up until that point, but it still feels like a pretty convenient asspull to push things into the ending. Just gets topped off with the "God's a dick!" trope by nuking the Earth.
