Watched this a couple of months ago, left me thinking and feeling like shit.

So Lux was kinda like Dante's Inferno, with the Shades being rooted to the ground in the Ninth Circle reserved betrayers around Kano as a Devil figure. There's even one of the Organo guys turned Shade that mentions this to Ichise near the end.

The surface feels a lot like Purgatorio.

So... there was a Paradiso maybe that we didn't get to see?

Depends whether you like Lain and Haibane Renmai (though personally I found it the weakest and most disinteresting of the three) - if you think of Lain as being about the mind, HR as being about the spirit, then Tex is almost certainly about that of the body.

Use of sound (and silence) is a central part of Hiroshi Hamasaki's directional style in Texhnolyze and Shigurui. It's great.

Why?

I feel like the Buddhist angle is a bit more apt to describe Texh -- the repeating hell seems to fit Kohakura's description more so than the 9th circle, perhaps, but the nature of just about all of the Shapes' (turning their backs on their former beliefs) very much fits your idea)

As for paradiso, take note that episode 19 (the first surface episode) is titled 'Heavenward' and 20 is 'Hades'.

Do you purposely rewatch incredibly taxing shows until you enjoy them or something.

Why hasn't Hajime Mizoguchi scored for more anime? I love his stuff (he always seems to be accompanied by Keishi Urata and Tsuneo Imahori as well).

>>101159162
it took me 5 episodes to realize it was good. But i don't quite understand it.

So you're an idiot and need things drilled into your head 5 times before you understand them.

He just wanted to stir shit up and spur people to action.

Also his mustache is moe.

Just how patrician do you even have to be just to do something like that.

>>101161780
Have you done anything else in the past 2 years or so?

Okay Kimlinger. Do you also still think it's a nihilistic black hole?
