Sci-Fi = Science Fiction, so it doesn't have to make sensePedro said:Yeah I bought it the day it came out, and I have to say I've no idea what everyone is complaining about.
Ok so the sci-fi is a little off (in particular see flying an organic ship by pulling on its entrails) but between the cylones who are human appearance (who seem to be at an evolutionary cross roads themselves as they discover the emotions that go along with being a sentient organic being), the last of a people, the formation of an entirely new goverment... you've got a really unique set of character interactions going on.
Technical accuracy be damned, these people are captivating.
Anime? Coherent?Pedro said:The exception to this rule is fantasy, which is why I hate the majority of fantasy (credit goes to many Japanese animes for setting up a coherant new universe rather than just making stuff up randomly as needed when dealing with fantasy).
Haha I said "many" anime shows, there's thousands and the ones with coherant worlds only make up about 1%. Theres another 1% that are so mad thay they'll have you falling off your chair in laughter... the other 98%... scary scary troubling stuff.Quarto said:Anime? Coherent?
Theres a lot of truth in that, however its a very creative outlet and hence, on occasion, is a... I hesitate to use the term genre... medium which produces some truly original, unique and wonderful results.LeHah said:I think Anime is an excellent example of Sturgeon's Law.
A lot of it is throw-away junk for fans who'll eat up the genre just because it's the genre (not unlike hardcore Star Wars fans). I've also found that anime fans have absolutely no appreciation or understanding for quality animation.
