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

8's just slightly pushing it on the ranchy scale, eh?

You're probably right
>>
>>10096984

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?
>>
>>10097041
simoun always bad.
>>
>>10097033

It's one of the few shows that seems to be highly polarizing, most likely you'll either love it or hate it.
>>
>>10097041

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?
>>
>>10097041
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
>>
>>10097109

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.
>>
>>10097080
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.

>>10097033
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.

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.

It tries something new and succeeds at it. Only flaw was that it was too slow paced.
>>
>>10097492
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.

The game is like Utawarerumono, without the porn (visual novel/SRPG)
