So, Simoun's first two US DVDs used DVD covers 1 & 2 from Japan. Three uses Japan's fifth (fuckhot Traporif/Morinas cover). Guesses as to what 4 & 5 will use? I figure that it'll be 7 for 4 (Rodore, Yun & Mamina) and 9 for 5 (Aer & Nev again).
Simoun had the hottest DVD covers.
simoun is a shitty show why the fuck is this important. sage
Why yes, yes it does.
What is it about this place that makes people want to shit on everything?
ITS MOTHERFUCKING SIMOUN MOTHERFUCKER THATS WHY ITS IMPORTANT
everytime is para-time
8's just slightly pushing it on the ranchy scale, eh?
You're probably right
Goddammit. I hated the main character's face and the ugly CG snail ships. But every time anon brings up Simoun I feel guilty for dropping it after 3 episodes.
I'm going to have to force myself to watch it again or this nagging feeling that I misjudged will never go away.
Must not be late enough yet. Night: Simoun Good, Day: Simoun Bad
Is it gay that I want Trapourif to plow me while I ravage Morinas?
simoun always bad.
It's one of the few shows that seems to be highly polarizing, most likely you'll either love it or hate it.
It's 3am. Simoun is bad.
The characters are hot though, so I tolerate it.
Does this series really have a strong sci-fi emphasis, or is it just an excuse for the yuri to be tragic?
I think the planets haven't aligned properly to have a Simoun thread. That or every Simoun fan (all 5 of us) are asleep/elsewhere.
Is it the lips that piss people off about the character design?
Yeah, try again, but don't hurt yourself, no gun to your head
Yeah. It's the fat, puffy face and the lips.
Hell yeah, I was just watching this shit today. Episode 8 was still as fucking awesome as I remember it.
The DVD artwork seems to be slightly better. I think. Also, I just realized that the artwork for the eyes are pretty interesting for an anime these days (oval-shaped, multi-toned).
See the ovals a lot in older shit, but rarely in modern stuff.
Oddly enough, there's not much yuri and it's not tragic at all. One of the few rare examples of lesbian GOOD ENDS that you'll ever see come out of Japan.
And the sci-fi element is kinda there, and it often clashes with the whole theological themes that pop up in the series.
First few episodes are brain-crashing. Watch it to episode 8 or 9. If it doesn't have you then, it's not likely to at all.
Highest form of love.
The thing is, you guys talked it up too much. People started watching it, and realized that it had a lot of flaws.
I am trying to actually watch anime.
Also it just seems with some of the visibility some people that watched it at our behest didn't like it
The latter if you don't bother trying to mull over it. You get out of it what you put into it.
Each anime thread on /a/ always has the same 5 fans posting, and the same 5 people who hate it posting
This is /a/ law.
Yes, it is awesome.
Yes, it are full of lesbians.
Yes, there are a few tragic moments.
highest form of shit sux.
Simoun has a high rating on the Universal Media Scale
The good outweighs the bad (and I can name a good deal), at least in my mind.
I thoroughly enjoyed simoun.
Sage for trying to make simoun popular and hated.
>Universal Media Scale
I must have missed whatever this refers to
/a/ hates everything. Even YKK. Yotsuba! is likely the next on the list.
Stop doing that already
Is dat sum pikachu soup?
I dropped Simoun at ep 15 due to spoilers via /a/. It wasn't that great to be honest. The art was beautiful though.
See what I'm talking about?
Look here, take 10 deep breaths, and de-rage, /a/. Damn.
good art does not a great series make.
look at ebichu :D
The directing was pretty damn good. So many memorable scenes, including the spoilered one above.
I went and bought the second DVD at Best Buy today, yet another 14 bux well spent
Was disappointed to see no Gurren Lagann DVD yet though.
It's weird for me to see this touted as the series of the "edgy," "sophisticated" /a/sshole, because it sure looks and sounds like shit.
random post /a/ bot?
Post saved for copy pasta/shitstorm uses
Moar DVD covers anyone?
How did you know I was just about to fap?
...appear to be missing 6
To me, this is a recipe for disaster.
I don't really like this one so much, seems off.
SIMOUN AND GIANT ROBO ARE COMPARABLE TO A BILDUNGSROMAN
in higher res would be awesome. In return, worksafe
It tries something new and succeeds at it. Only flaw was that it was too slow paced.
For the first 8-10 episodes, I'll agree it was a bit slow but only for the fact it had to build an entire world from the bottom up and introduce/establish a rather large cast.
Avoids moral absolutism, suggests a secular root of the religious elements, faith is presented as a war-inciting, stagnating mindset but also a healing force.
show gets a rating of "excellent" on the Universal Media Scale
Let me see this scale of yours
...well-stacked, this one
PS2 promo stuff? This is new.
There's a ps2 gaem too? I'll look for it NOW
I thought the pace was just about right. Then again, I enjoyed ARIA and MARIMITE.
I got the ISO for this, but I stopped modding my consoles around the Dreamcast/PS2 era.
I should really look into how to play pirated shit on PS2 one day.
The game is like Utawarerumono, without the porn (visual novel/SRPG)
in other words, pretty decent stuff
