    Boa are a fantastic band!

    Jasmine has a beautiful voice. I have their albums Twilight (duvet is on that) and Get There.

    It's a shame their output hasn't been more prolific.

    Anime wise - I've been toying with subscribing to CrunchyRoll again. A few years back I was heavily into the fansub / torrent scene but I can't be bothered with that anymore.

    I've got plenty of old stuff to watch before even considering new but is it worth a CR sub?

    CR is a great service. I've gone back to the grey side of things though.

  3. #463
    I still pay for CR(5 a month) but still use BT over it aside from slowly watching Gintama and getting a few manga they recently got like Grand Blue... but with netflix paying for their own shows recently you won't get everything (Relife, Violet EverGarden, Devilman to name a recent few), and i think they still don't have One Piece which isn't a problem as the anime be rubbish for years now.

    Small update on what i've watching.

    More 3-gatsu no Lion, it had taken break around ep37 over Jan/Feb and now it's back with a fantastic little arc for the old timer, that somehow betters Hina bullying stuff which i didn't think they could top. Yet again they take a side character, and give us their motivations and a little backstory pinning up the brilliant art direction and animation which really gives VEG and Slow Start, two very impressive shows on the animation techniques and art front this season a run for their money.

    AICO, 1-12eps - a netflix funded show and another one where they dump the entire season in one go... not sure i'm a fan of that as you don't many talking about show if comes and goes without that weeks wait in between. Nice little modern day sci-fi show about a team of divers (power suited treasure hunters) tasked with escorting an person to deepest and most dangerous place in the "blast zone" where divers go to hunt lost technology in amongst some living biohzard/cancer like mutations. It's a decent adventure which keeps you on your toes with who lives or dies, and enough mystery around the plot to keep you coming back for more, although the first twist is pretty predictable they keep the others secrets well hidden.

    Apart from that Sora yori mo Tooi Basho is still my favorite from this season, followed by yuru camp, VEG, PopTeam and Slow Start.

    Sora yori mo Tooi Basho ep12 - they build up an emotional episode between girls struggling to help Shirase and a bit of light hearted skits as they travel out to the last place Shirase mum was alive. And that ending

    when she gets the laptop working and the emails she's sent holding on to that glimmer Tako might still be alive start loading in unread, following by the wailing cry of acceptance and other girls outside unable to help

    Hope the last episode gets abit more upbeat, either way what a great show.

    How come so many anime shows feature demons and suchlike? That aspect seems to be quite heavily pimped from what I can see. Is it just a cultural thing?

  7. #467
    Yeah, it seems to be very much a cultural thing... I really have no interest in Urotsukidoji and the such. Although the young ladies involved always seems to be thoroughly enjoying multiple demon tentacle penetration.

  8. #468
    I think that's more down what you select to view, that list above about the big shows for spring feature 0 demons in the religious/ghost sense, if you watch a lot of shonen specially with fantasy elements or any horror/thriller shows you comes across Youkai alot more.

    Yeah, its just something that stuck out as so different because a lot of titles reuse most of the common western tropes but then there is this whole subset based around demonology that seems to be strictly an Eastern thing as the Western media just isn't as saturated with it. Just weird really, I was wondering what inspired this kind of thinking and how it relates to the culture as a whole as I'm totally ignorant of that aspect of Japanese life bar a quick bit of searching earlier.

    I'd watched Death Note (which was really quite dope until it jumped the shark and then reversed over said shark for a good measure before jumping over its corpse again) and that whole shinigami thing made me do some searching because I wanted to know if it was made up or had a point of reference and then checked a few other sites and saw that it actually has its own subset of shows that talk of similar things and was wondering of its origin and cultural implication as its not something that well known by most foreigners.

    If you interested in origins there is a comedy show called Hozuki no Reitetsu, which centres around Japanese hell (and sometimes wonders into western and chinese hell/heaven) and history of its demons/ghosts in folklore. First season is 13eps, and s2 is currently airing which will be another 26eps when it's finished. As for why it popular is probably down Shinto being main religion, as it full of morale tales collected together from long gone villages forming its backbone of mythology, that's just an assumption made by me through anime i've seen , probably best looking up wiki.
