what does /a/ think about this? does it worth watching?
One of the best anime movies.
Yes. And no, it doesn't afraid of anything.
You don't watch Mindgame. You sit in your chair while Mindgame dazzles your senses.
It's worth more than your life.

>>10249928 what does /a/ think about this?
/a/ doesn't, mostly.
>does it worth watching?
You must be trolling me, saying that with that pic, right?
/a/ overrates it.
But it's pretty good.
I'd recommend it.
You don't know what you are talking about.
It's not only /a/:
I'm going to rewatch it right now.
It's not the timeless work of art that /a/ makes it out to be, but it's a fun movie with a great message delivered in the best and most entertaining way possible
One of my favorite animated movies ever, japanese or otherwise. Go watch it, just don't expect a deep and subtle message; it's all meant to be really obvious.
can't take some cartoony stylization, moeblob/realism fag?
ehs pretty good
>It's not the timeless work of art that /a/ makes it out to be
Yes it is.
This thread is full of "IT'S OVERRATED BECAUSE I SAY IT IS!"
We all have our opinions now.
Just try not to hype it too much; /a/ hype is what prevented me from enjoying tons of anime. It was a great animated movie, but it wasn't a MOVING MASTERPIECE MADE OF PURE, UNADULTERATED HUMAN EMOTION OH GOD *FAP FAP FAP*
I guess all this talk about 'realistic emotions' stems from the fact that Nishi is a spineless loser and nerds can easily associate with him. Mind Game is a pretty light-hearted story (despite dealing with tons of dark and depressing themes) and you're making it look like a deep and serious exploration of the human psyche, which is completely wrong.
Also, God was an awesome character.
So, is this one of those "all style and no substance" kind of movies?
When you see it, you'll shit bricks.
No, it's not deep, it's just a beautiful piece of moving art. Don't be scared to give praise to deserving titles. Fuck /a/, quit holding back because of their nonsense.
No, it has a ton of style, and very clear substance.
It was a good movie but I don't really want to praise it that way.
No, there's plenty of substance. It's still damn stylish though.
Eh, I guess you're right. It's just that whenever there's an "/a/-approved" series that everyone loves, it'll eventually end up being trolled and sagebombed endlessly by people who didn't think it was the best thing ever.
Well, you think Gurren Lagann has tons of substance, so I'd take anything you say regarding substance with a bag of salt.
Giving praise is one thing, being a pretentious faggot is another. Do the former, don't to the latter.
Mind Game is a truly great movie. But if I wondered if I should watch it and stumbled upon this thread, I'd seriously get scared.
Everyone without bias says GL had substance, which is why Ashita no Joe's mangaka specifically complimented its substance.
So who are you?
>As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Gainax or Gurren-Lagann approaches one.
>>Everyone without bias says
That's a highly biased comment, ironically.
The only thing I really hate about Mind Game is the way it's becoming the new "anime sucks shit only emo goth fag pedo furries watch it BUT MIND GAME IS AWESOME AND THE ONLY GOOD ANIME EVER CREATED" anime.
Mind Game's way of delivering its messages is pretty similar to Gurren's. I know saying this will cause all the elitist "experimental animation" artfags to RAGE endlessly, but it's true if you think about it.
>which is why Ashita no Joe's mangaka specifically complimented its substance.
Sauce? Is this actually true or just some subtle anti-Gurren trolling method?
It's an observation, with evidence if you continue reading.
Nobody is unbiased. Therefore your statement is logically sound, but carries no information.
Remember kids, you have to be a professional to have an opinion!
Cirno's actually shooting for "Remember kids, the professionals know what to like better than you do!"
>Not only it is visually very interesting, the overall narrative uses anime itself as a metafictional medium of plot development. Using robots stolen from the enemy against them? Build your civilization over the structure you've just destroyed? Getting a hold of your ancestors ships yet making them fit your shape? It's all so brilliant and subtle you can't help but laugh in awe.
Commenting on the award it received from the ministry of cultural affairs.
And your evidence is a shonen mangaka's opinion. Hard, objective and decisive evidence indeed.
That's not actually as source, you know.
Well, I liked Mind Game. Fun, interesting, and unpredictable anime movie.
I just think a successful AND talented mangaka's opinion on the latest "generic shonen piece of shit for gaiafags" should be taken seriously more than the rantings of elitist weeaboo neckbeards.
BAAAAAAAWW ASHITA NO JOE IS SHONEN SO IT MUST SUCK SHIT, I ONLY READ SEINEN RATED MANGA FOR ADULT OTAKUS SUCH AS MYSELF
once again, who are you?
So, do you have any valid reason why we should take a shounen mangaka's opinion on substance as objective evidence?
I'm starting to understand why people like you consider GL to have tons of substance.
He never said objective. Learn to interpret rather than being a pedantic, butt-hurt dipshit.
Seems fucking awesome, currently downloading it from Irc.
I don't think you are really paying attention to this discussion.
>Everyone without bias says GL had substance, which is why Ashita no Joe's mangaka specifically complimented its substance.
1. Gurren's got plenty of substance and symbolism... for a children's show about fighting robots. It's just that elitist faggots can't go past the fact that it's a shonen series that more than five people outside of grolious nippon know about and think of it as "the next Inuyasha".
2. It's just common sense - an acclaimed, veteran comic artist who's worked in the anime/manga industry for decades probably knows his shit more than a basement dweller who's trying to gain weeaboo cred by only praising the most obscure and outdated shit.
enjoy ur memorable experience, tripfag
sounds funny to me.
People who demand "substance" are usually people who are demanding a lot of writer-y writing.
Mind Game doesn't have that, it's a cartoon-y cartoon.
It's "substance" is in its animation. And it has a pretty solid theme/message too. But if you want overly written plot and dialogue look elsewhere.
