Picked up another classic (mostly because it was cheap and I needed to replace my old vhs tape): Riding Bean

One show to grab my attention this season is Baraou no Soretsu/Requiem of the Rose King, essentially an anime adaptation of Richard III. As a sucker for both anime & European history, I'm onboard with this flowery adaptation of the War of the Roses (pun intended). I'm interested to see what sort of stylistic spins they put on the classic story.

This has also caught my interest though I have been reluctant to start it; how is it so far? When it comes to Anime adaptations of European Historical Events, they tend to be on the more "fantasy" side of things instead of an actual Historical Event.

As I understand, it's based on the mobile game.  The Male lead is the player character and has amnesia as a way to explain why the player doesn't know squat about the world.

Nothing more fanciful so far than the ghost hauntings already present in Shakespeare.....

Yes, of the 'trapped in a video game' variety. With bonus memory manipulation. That said, the anime hasnt quite gotten to the point of making that explicit yet, although there's been lots of hints. The mobile game actually spills the beans on that a lot sooner.

For those who haven't seen it, "Belle" (the new film from Hosoda Mamoru) is really, really good.

"My Dress Up Darling" has had a suprisingly good relationship development between the two leads. I really liked how the writers have grown it.

Started watching that one recently.  Looks very promising.  I think they could have made her a fan of something other than an adult game and still had the same affect, but I will admit it's resulted in some really good laughs.

If you've never met a girl into adult games, you need to get out more. Pretty common in cosplay circles. Bisque Doll is very true to life, gal falling for the protagonist aside.  ;D

No way. I'm staying inside.  I may be lonely, but I'm warm.

But yeah, I've met my fair share of girls into such things.  I could just do without another reason to watch the volume on my TV when watching anime.  Though to be fair, I'm sure even the innocent stuff probably gets a raised eyebrow from people walking through the hall now and then.

My favorite manga series by a longshot, and the OVA is quite good though damn there should have been so much more.  In a perfect world, etc.

I've seen some hilarious anime out of context videos on YouTube.

i have meh vibe on this
Setting aside that I want to crawl up a wall every time someone says Nier: Automata is an RPG, I'm not sure how well the story lends itself to a non-interactive experience.  Is it going to be like The World Ends with You, where the anime is just telling us the game's story again?  Because that would be... a choice.
Or is it going to follow on from the canonical ending?  That would probably make more sense.
Are characters going to shift jarringly between 2D and 3D mid-scene like in TWEWY?  I couldn't watch past the first episode because of that.

I'm reminded of the book adaptation of Nier: Automata. 

As a fan who had recently finished the game with almost all significant endings (never beat moonface), I was desperate for any further lore I could get my hands on, and as such, thoroughly enjoyed the book.  It gave you some new back ground info, as well as characters' thoughts not given in the game.  I'd recommend it to anyone who's a fan. For anyone else, I would recommend avoiding it like the plague. The writing is a lower quality than I would expect form a middle school student.  There's literally a scene where they mention they'll need to figure out how to get onto the roof of a building, and in the next sentence they're jumping down through a hole they found on that roof.  Not only is that some horrible continuity, it's a crime that they'd skip the whole roller coaster scene.

While I'd like better, I'm expecting much of the same from this anime.  As a fan, I'll love seeing it, but I'll probably never recommend it to anyone.

For what it's worth, the other two Nier books were better.  I highly recommend the one with the short stories, but don't read it if you haven't finished the game yet.

I'm up to episode 8. I like it so far.

I'd long since lost hope for a continuation, but a new adaptation might just be the next best thing.

The rest was of the caste was nothing to write home about (good or bad), but she was perfect. She did a better job than the Japanese actor, imo.

I am very excited, especially since its sounds like it will indeed be a continuation and not a reboot.

In other news the US Marine Corps has always had a good public relations department. Even today most people think that the land fighting in the Pacific theater in WWII was mostly a Marine affair (even though the Army outnumbered them more than 3 to 1).

The USMC has now embraced anime with this recruiting poster.  8)

A recruiting poster depicting a character who's story was about being seriously wounded in combat and having to learn to deal with PTSD and other problems caused by being a child-soldier seems to be of questionable taste.

Even better. Would love it if they could finish up the story like the manga, or even another complete story.
