Deadline Hollywood has reported that HBO is in talks with Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) to develop a TV series based on the manga Monster.
Del Toro will be co-writing with Stephen Thompson (best known for his writing on Doctor Who and Sherlock.) The project was originally planned for a feature film, but proved too complicated to fit into a normal feature-length time frame. Del Toro was eventually able to convince Naoki Urasawa, the author of Monster, to talk to HBO about a TV series instead.
That is how I feel about Keiko and Yuske 24/7. Kuwabara is my spirit animal.
okay if im reviewing something and you disagree with me, don’t flat out tell me that i am wrong okay? you don’t need to correct my opinions okay? geez, we’re talking about an anime series not my position on gay marriage.
Title logo style changed for the Rebellion Story, since it’s quite obvious that the main heroine and protagonist is going to generally focus on Homura in the next movie.
just in case anybody wanted to put a face to lamb. she realizes that that’s a tanuki on her head and not a lamb.
right: lambie as she is every day. be aware that that is not a hat, it’s a living parasite with it’s fangs buried deep into lambie’s grey matter. they live together in a (mostly) symbiotic relationship.

bottom left: what happens when the tanuki-parasite buries too far deeply into lambie’s brain. especially when near delicious sugary foods.
From Up On Poppy Hill - In Theaters 15 March [Official Trailer]
I am VERY curious to see how Disney handled the adapted script on this one. The romantic conflict…like… yeah.
Poppy Hill looks beautiful like all Ghibli films, but its not the greatest one. Infinitely better than Miyazaki Goro’s first work, but that doesn’t amount to saying much (Earthsea was dreadful). I hope it’s well received stateside anyway, and that Disney spams the hell out of it like they did with Arrietty and Ponyo. The lack of A-list or even B-list stars might turn people off.
The last three films to come out of the studio range from okay to slightly better than okay, but as long as we can get people to go see them, we can support Disney’s effort to localize Miyazaki’s work for American audiences and keep the trend going in the future.
It’s not a bad show but that its top 100 in Rating and Popularity on MAL is amazing to me…
jk it is a bad show.
Psycho Pass character designs [x]
Gosh, Satoru, you are cute. I like your hair.
Just finished From the New World.
It’s bothering me so bad, that as intriguing and original and quality as this series was, I just couldn’t throw my heart into it.
Trying to figure out why— I think it has some pacing issues. It definitely has some characterization issues with the main five; the only person I really became invested in was Satoru (thank stars). I think that’s the main reason.
Tip of the hat to a series that isn’t afraid to go there, and I always love a deep dark study of human nature. Even the biology and the evolution ideas they integrated tickled my fancy (cause I’m actually all about that human evolution). The bonobo thing, whaddup Anthropology. The twists were all very good. I understood and liked the message. Speculative fiction, go you, show.
But I wish it had been a little tighter. Instead of throwing out random stuff and random characters expecting us to care (I can’t count how many ‘characters’ are introduced only to be immediately thrown away by the story), flesh out the mains a bit more, and cut out what’s superfluous. That random fish that blew gunpowder? What was that. That distracted the hell out of me.
I just feel the series rested on it’s incredibly bizarre setting and premise to keep the audience stimulated. Which is fine; I acknowledge it was still a great show. And I very much respect it for that. It was very engaging for me on an intellectual level, just not an emotional one. I dunno.
Maybe I was just too caught up in my Gino-feels to properly care…
Sorry this was a bit incoherent.
“They were not like ships passing each other in the night. They understood each other better than anyone else, and each was focused solely on the other.”
I feel so sorry for anybody who missed out on this anime this year because it was absolutely brilliant. Likewise, I also feel sorry for anybody who didn’t, because Urobuchi Gen ripped their hearts out.
