It's just obscure as fuck

>>225813238
First time hearing about it, might check it out.
>>
>>225815863
It's actually quite interesting. It's as realistic of a nuclear war drama as you will ever see from an anime, and the type of thing that could only be made in the 80s. Stellar soundtrack too.
>>
>>225815966
The OST was composed by the master Seiji Yokoyama (Saint Seiya)

They really narrowed down that future. Might as well have out a last digit on it.

Sounds great, I'll try to watch it as soon as possible.

From the sound of it, even back then people were a bit touchy about it being made.

are you sure?

Katsumata wasn't a workaholic, he was a beast. Too bad he's remembered in the west for his terrible mistep on Saint Seiya Hades. To be fair, he's an old Japanese man so he must have an undying loyalty for his company.

the oldest anime people have seen here is evangelion. imagine expecting people here to know anything about anime.
>>
>>225819043
Yeah pretty much
>>
>>225819043
If you want to base your whole identity and self-worth around your knowledge of anime, go right ahead. To me it's just a pastime.

>>225813238
I love old stuff and I've had the poster for this in my wallpapers folder for years
Thanks for showing me what it's from.

>>225813238
Just finished it. It was pretty good, but I thought the ending was a bit boring.
>>
>>225820310
i don't think he does by saying what he said. You just sound triggered.
>>
>>225813238
My favourite part was when they were at the disco talking about the idealistic differences between Japan and America. And when I saw it was my favourite part, I mean that's the only part I can remember because I didn't like the movie at all.
>>
It's an interesting look into cold-war era mindsets through the lens of anime if nothing else.
>>
>>225825062
The dancing is pretty well animated, although kinda uncanny.
>>
>>225825141
Very uncanny. And again just the fact that such blunt sociopolitical discussion was played over those dancing cuts made it feel so goofy to me, which is why it stuck with me.

What's up with post-apocalyptical movies and that specific period of time? I guess nips were like new rich for the economial expansion and disaster movies became huge in Hollywood during the mids-to-late 70s so the logic here was to make an even bigger spectacle. Hollywood gives disasters, Japan gives global destruction.
>>
>>225828661
Japan Sinks was a box office success and it probably seemed logical to make movies about other kinds of disasters.

I kinda like it for how weird it is. Although the movie as a whole is a weird novelty.
>>
There a version out there that's subbed? I want to say the rip in the 80s decade anime torrent was dub only
>>
>>225833450
Yes, check Usenet.

It's interesting how this actually predated Ronny Raygun's SDI speech.

Chapter Sanctuary is kino. Chapter Inferno and Chapter Elysium are dogshit and traumatized an entire generation of latino weebs. Also they made Katsumata into the most hated man among latino otakus
>>
The dub playing Rush's Witch Hunt over the Fulda Gap being invaded in a nuclear exchange was pretty cool.
>>
>>225835977
I really liked chapter sanctuary.
I did feel the others were... a bit of a mess.
I thought it was kurimadas fault but the manga is much better.
>>
>>225835873
Yeah, I downloaded it a few days ago:

Make sense but Kinji Fukusaku's Virus and Future War 198X went all over-the-top because it wasn't just Japan but the entire world going into flames.
>>
>>225836128
It was Toei rushing Overture in every sense of the word. Not only because the execs ordered the movie before the Hades arc was completed but also because they were really stubborn with releasing the movie in february for whatever reason. After the movie was a flop, in typical Japanese fashion they evade responsability by passing the ball to an underling, in this case Yamauchi. Also they brought a much cheaper staff for continuing the project because the myth cloths. And they took Katsumata out of the retirement home. What could Katsumata do? He's a war generation guy. That mean he has a samurai-like discipline and loyalty for his company and he's willing to burn himself in his company's name
>>
>>225836256
Overture was really... eh I couldn't into it. I'm enjoying next dimension
>>
>>225813238
Did it really need the romantic subplot?
>>
>>225836561
Yes. AMWF is the most aesthetic pairing

Why did so many anime from the 80s end up with the world being destroyed?
>>
>>225838646
In the 80's, cold war looked like it was going to go hot. Also Ronald Regan went with the "act crazy" strategy so everyone figured it was a matter of time before he pushed the button for a stupid reason.
>>

>In the 80's, cold war looked like it was going to go hot

This is a conversation about the 1980's, try to keep up.
>>
>>225813238
Watched it last summer, thought it'd hit sll my niches. It was pretty shit. Typical ye olde ova that had shit characterization mixed with underwhelming action sequences, but someone will regardless praise it as the best thing ever because it's obscure and has 3-tone shadows.
>>
>>225827061
You don't just get told how to find the secret threads, you gotta figure it out yourself
>>
>>225836157
They also had to go bigger and, in the case of Virus, more expensive.
>>
>>225813238
This is definitely an interesting anime. Obviously not going to be everyone's thing, but it's worth checking out anyway.
>>
>>225827061
Then gb2 r*ddit, faggot.
>>
>>225813238
The part at the end of the movie where they literally send the girl up in a rocket to try and save her japanese boyfriend who just sacrificed himself to destroy the last missile was retarded and unrealistic.
>>
>>225813238
>>
>>225837975
no

It's probably people trying to rationalize the nuclear fear from previous decades by turning it into entertainment.
>>
>>225844887
Are you sure?
>>
>>225845635
Making entertainment out of scary things is a very human thing.

What does it have to do with anime and japan? I bet Japanese barely heard about some cold war.

80s West looks super joyful ti me. the music was all LET'S HAVE LOTS OF FUN and stuff. Dark sci-fi must have some other roots. Well, maybe I'm mistaken because I look from Russia and there was almost zero impact from the cold war here because general audience didn't know much about it, many probably didn't know at all.
>>
>>225842411
That's not an alternative to this place. That's a steaming pile of shit.

>nips actually capable of drawing perfect Western artstyle
It's so weird but it's fascinating, I'm adding it on my backlog
>>
>>225813238
Has some cool animation but its overall pretty boring

The existence of this movie kinda proves otherwise.

Shingo Araki was involved in Inferno, right? The people involved should have committed suicide for sullying his work like this.
