What did /a/ think of this?
>>225813238Don't know what it is but is from the US so it's shit
>>225813475>but is from the USTake a quick google search bro
>>225813238Get this american shit off /a/
>>225813290>>225813475>>225814116It's just obscure as fuck>>225813238First time hearing about it, might check it out.
>>225815863It'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.
>>225815966The OST was composed by the master Seiji Yokoyama (Saint Seiya)
>>225813238They really narrowed down that future. Might as well have out a last digit on it.
>>225815966>>225816133Sounds great, I'll try to watch it as soon as possible.
>>225815966 From the sound of it, even back then people were a bit touchy about it being made.
>>225816133are you sure?
>>225814116Its anime none nuts
>>225815863>Co-directt Future War 198X>Same year release Arcadia of my Youth and SSXKatsumata 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.
>>225819043Yeah pretty much
>>225819043If 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.
>>225813238I 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.
>>225813238Just finished it. It was pretty good, but I thought the ending was a bit boring.
>>225820310i don't think he does by saying what he said. You just sound triggered.
>>225813238My 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.
>>225825062The dancing is pretty well animated, although kinda uncanny.
>>225825141Very 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.
>>225813290>>225813475>>225814116>Trying that hard to fit in and being wrong about it
>>225819043Where do you go if you want to find people like that?
>>225826459you won't find it. not here. not today.
>>225826540Any alternative to this place would be wonderful to know about.
>>225825347People talk shit when they're killing time, like discussing the sociopolitical differences between Japan and America
>>225827061Knowledgeable people just do blog posts and talk as little to the uneducated swine as possible.
>>225813238What'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.
>>225828661Japan Sinks was a box office success and it probably seemed logical to make movies about other kinds of disasters.
>>225813290>>225813475>>225814116On this day, henceforth, we shall mock these posters for being ugly trannies trying to infiltrate /a/ and being utterly wrong.
>>225825347I 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
>>225833450Yes, check Usenet.
>>225813238It's interesting how this actually predated Ronny Raygun's SDI speech.
I'm surprised this thread got so many responses.
>>225816133Aight im sold
>>225818960Whats wrong with saint seiya hades?
>>225835177Just that there is even 15 people on /a/ who knows what this is enough to have an opinion on it surprises me.
>>225835721I have no idea what it is but what the anons said sounds cool and saint seiya audio guy sells me.https://youtu.be/pdUaxww_9sk
>>225816681There was lossless OST but it has zero seeds on Nyaa and I acn't find it anywhere. Does anybody have it?
>>225835614Chapter 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.
>>225835977I 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.
>>225835873Yeah, I downloaded it a few days ago:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWjKPm4PNUs
>>225829861Make 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.
>>225836128It 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
>>225836256Overture was really... eh I couldn't into it. I'm enjoying next dimension
>>225813238Did it really need the romantic subplot?
>>225836561Yes. AMWF is the most aesthetic pairing
>make a thread for one of the most obscure anime to ever be translated>somehow gets 50+ replies
>>225836129Anon, you're the best!
Why did so many anime from the 80s end up with the world being destroyed?
>>225838646In 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.
>>225838964>In the 80's, cold war looked like it was going to go hotthat was the early 60s dumbdumb
>>225839098This is a conversation about the 1980's, try to keep up.
>>225813238Watched 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.
>>225827061You don't just get told how to find the secret threads, you gotta figure it out yourself
>>225836157They also had to go bigger and, in the case of Virus, more expensive.
>>225813238This is definitely an interesting anime. Obviously not going to be everyone's thing, but it's worth checking out anyway.
>>225827061Then gb2 r*ddit, faggot.
>>225813238The 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.
>>225828661It's probably people trying to rationalize the nuclear fear from previous decades by turning it into entertainment.
>>225844887Are you sure?
>>225845635Making entertainment out of scary things is a very human thing.
225838964What 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.
>>225842411That's not an alternative to this place. That's a steaming pile of shit.
>>225813238>nips actually capable of drawing perfect Western artstyleIt's so weird but it's fascinating, I'm adding it on my backlog
>>225813238Has some cool animation but its overall pretty boring

>>225849843>I bet Japanese barely heard about some cold war.The existence of this movie kinda proves otherwise.
>>225835977Shingo Araki was involved in Inferno, right? The people involved should have committed suicide for sullying his work like this.
>>225836129Thanks anon ily
