You're the first person to elicit out a reaction of the sort from me. I mean, seriously, I wouldn't be this way with Siggu or anyone else. You're somehow...different. I know I'm being possessive and childish and petty and you're just being nice by saying that it doesn't infringe on your rights because it totally does but WHAT THE **** I CAN'T EXPLAIN THIS FEELING GOD DAMN IT.
I mean, I can definitely understand your possessiveness of me (unfortunately there's no better word, but I don't mean "possessive" in the way that it infringes on my rights). Don't worry Dero, I won't let you down! :3
I mean it. I'll be so mad the world will explode and I will stay mad for a ~long~ time. And perhaps cut off all my connections to PC too. Maybe. Will depend on how mad I am then. I don't really want to know, though. Please don't give me a chance to check. :p
And that is why pics will have to do. My mobile doesn't have zomg super awesome speed so that I can somehow skype you or anything. Nor can I fly over to America right now and hug you and nick. As much as I want to.
This is funny, though. I'm never this petty or childish. But if you meet dipu before I get to see you and nick I'll be mad. Really, really mad. Can't explain why.
I will find it and I will read it. Immortal Iron fist, I mean. The main problem is that there are so many comics on a single hero that things become hard for me to know where to start. :[ and okay then, watch 5cms/s and Redline. Both!
And yes yes. Call me a selfish prick but I want ME, YES *ME* to be the first to meet you. Not anyone else here.
Tim Maughan of Anime News
Network describes the film as
"something very special, very
different, and insanely exhilarating."
In particular he praises the film's
director, saying that "Koike has
managed to make all this chaos
believable." He goes on to say that
"Redline is animation not only at its
best, but also largely animation for
animation's sake." Although
Maughan says some may dislike its
techno soundtrack and "minimal
plot," he calls Redline "the most
insanely exciting, visually
exhilarating anime film you've seen
Thomas Zoth of Mania.com
comments that while the film does
not provide "a deep plot or unique
premise," it still "demands to be
seen." He said that if Scott Pilgrim
vs. the World was "an assault on the
senses ... Redline is a declaration of
war." Zoth went on to praise the
film for its "imaginative creatures
and clever designs", to compare
Koike's work to that of Quentin
Tarantino, and to compliment the
film for its "soundtrack, with its
memorable high-energy tracks that
greatly complement the chaos
onscreen." He concludes by saying
that if "the life of the industry has
been drained and replaced with
rote, cookiecutter shows-by-
committee, Redline shows a path
Nicolas Penedo of the French
magazine Animeland describes it as
the " Paris-Dakar revisited à la Ōban
Star-Racers", a remake of
Hanna-Barbera Wacky Races with
arts inspired from Jack Kirby
comics and know-how, rhythm and
energy inherent of the best
Japanese anime movies. The
reviewer praises the animation
quality as breathtaking, and
declares that Takeshi Koike made
an homage to comics and films of
the 70s and 80s. On the
negative, he notes the lack of
scenario stating "Don't hope to find
any scenario in Redline".
Kwenton Bellette and Peter Martin
reviewed Redline for Twitch Film.
Bellette describes it as a "truly out
of this world experience", " Speed
Racer on crack" and praised the
supporting characters for being
memorable and the background
galaxy made of different races and
creeds to be very solid. Martin
expresses that "it feels like every
centimeter of every frame is filled
with some kind of kinetic color or
action or bit of business, making it
an experience that is sure to
overload the senses" and asserts
that writer Katsuhito Ishii succeeds
at making a feature-length anime
as insane as his film Funky Forest.
Jon Liang of UK Anime Network
comments that "A sense of the
cool and outrageous is seeped into
every pore of the design, ...
exaggerated is an understatement
here", and notes that the film's
"cinema-quality smooth animation"
makes "even the most alien of
things move naturally and the
sense of speed that is often
achieved is frequently mind-
blowing." He remarks that "the
visuals and over-the-top action will
most likely overload sensitive brain
cells," but concludes by calling
Redline "an incredibly exciting
cinematic experience that doesn't
take itself at all seriously."
I wasn't joking about the dipu/meetup/pics part, just saiyan. :p
also, have you seen 'Redline'? An anime movie that resembles a western flick with its comic book art style and insane visuals. It took 7 years to develop and contains more than 100,000 hand drawn pieces of art. I think you should watch that too. Just because how insanely orgasmic it is to the eye. (bad story though)
And, as an artist, I believe you can really appreciate the level of artistry involved in it. How insanely beautiful it is. Almost like a painting coming to life. So yes, please do give it a watch with nick whenever you're free.
