Blassreiter was a show that happened. It was 2008.
>>20542295is it any good?
>>20542301It was certainly better than Dragonaught
>>20542311Debatable. I actually finished dragonaut. I think. It was over a decade ago.
>>20542331I doubt it, i also finished Dragonauts some months ago. I don't think Urobuchi is particularly a Good writer but he must certainly be capable to do something enjoyable at the very least, and better than the stinking pile of shit that is Dragonauts.
>>20542301I lost all interest after they killed the fake protagonist, the real protagonist looked so boring.
>>20542295I remember Blassreiter, watched it on youtube for free and legally too.
>>20542360Wasn't it part of some attempt at turning youtube into a streaming platform?
Is this the one made by Itano?
Terrible terrible CGI made it almost unwatchable.Karas and T&B is how you make CGI henshin hero shows.
i remember watching this on animax i liked idea there’s different protagonist after different episodes but after a while all the drama and endless deaths got tiring.
>>20542381And written by Urobutchi.
>>20542361For a while there were a few services that put up entire series on their channels. Pretty sure Desert Punk is available right now, and it's how I watched Witchblade.
>>20542295Was this the one that had Wish for the Stars as the ED? I remember really liking it, I think the first half. It was motorcycle-robot-demons right? It was neat but like all Gonzo shows it's 60% good 40% dumb
>>20542848>Urobutchi.Aside from Madoka what else has he done that you'd recommend?
>>20542911It was bootleg Kamen Rider for the most part.
>>20542923Thunderbolt Fantasy is a fun show, though it using puppets may turn some people off.
>>20542923Madoka was crap but I'd recommend Fate Zero
>>20542923obsolete is great but doesnt go anywhere because its a commercial for models, kamen rider gaim was great and one if not the best written rider show, thunderbolt fantasy is awesome, saya no uta, kikoukugai, expelled from paradise, gargantia is ok but has very funny mecha dialogue at the end which i will always remember, he is a good writer, the sole fact that he almost singlehandedly was the one that makes madoka good is proof enough, he gets his name on too many projects for marketing and he is barely having input though
>>20542301Its Motorcycle tokusatsu + devil may cry. I would recommend the Karas movies, live-action Casshern and Hakaider for similar. Ignore if you don't appreciate the moody toku aesthetic
>>20542295>>20542301I enjoyed it but it's definitely flawed.
>>20542978Karas was way better than Blassreiter but also much shorter.
>>20542864I got back into Gundam via YouTube. There were official channels that had pretty much everything mecha related that aired on Toonami alongside stuff that never got to air like Zeta; most of it both subbed and dubbed too.
>>20542923phantom of inferno
>>20543012Comparing an OVA to a TV series seems disingenuous.
>>20545211Fair enough but even for Gonzo some of the CGI is pretty not great. I think there's a lot of stuff to like about the show but you really have to be able to get passed that.
>>20546086I dunno that just sounds like the typical Gonzo experience, they kinda always just fuck off to do their own thing.
>>20542978Live action Casshern was horrible. I can't believe the same director made Goemon.
Just watched the first episode, enjoyed it.Gonna keep binging it for now, any other Kamen Rider-esque anime out their?Outside of the previously mentioned Karas.
>>20546113Sadamitsu's kind of cool
>>20546117Thanks, i'll check it out
>>20542295dumptruck butt and a dumptruck face
>>20542295How could I forget? I've only been waiting to post this pic for 10 years.
>>20542923Gaim was written by him, good show. >>20542940 is also a good choice it might be his most ambitious and passionate project he's written so don't let the puppets deter you.
>>20547125Amanda is banging
>>20542295should have been an eroge
>>20547185I'm surprised there wasn't one, well not eroge so much but game in general. Nitro+ was one of the chief collaborators.
>>20547129Sky Girls was great.
>>20542295Blassreiter looks like it'd fit perfectly into a Nitro+ game, hentai or crossover or both. A shame none of that happened. It even got a weird micro-sequel with that new Blassreiter girl Snow and some short manga.
>>20547472Well technically it's a Nitro+ joint, or at least they have shared creator credits alongside Gonzo.
This was the first anime I ever watched (knowing it was anime, anyway, not counting fucking pokemon). Glad to see it talked about. Was it perfect? Fucking hell no it was not, but I actually really liked the use of CGI to put textures on all the models, and how seriously it took itself despite the absurd premise. If you like/can stand Gonzo CGI at its finest, this is worth watching, everyone. It's what would happen if Kamen Rider was allowed to have a shorter runtime and an adult-rated plot. >>20546113Guyver will do for you. Transforming bugman fights furries. The 80s OVA is I believe gorier and shorter, I've only seen the 2005 adaptation. Neither of them have a real ending but you'll have fun along the way.>>20542301The pros: Itano is going batshit fucking insane with no one to stop him. The fights are high-flying and borderline hard to follow to the untrained eye. OST is pretty good. The plot is serial but has definite arcs, I really, REALLY like the mid-point arc. The show has a lot of care put into little things like the OPs, they do a slightly different cut of OP2 for a couple episodes to hide a spoiler, for instance. The cons: This is peak late-2000s EDGE and you better at least have a guilty pleasure for it, because it will beat you over the head with it between gore, character designs, and almost constant forced tragedy.
>>20547472It really is easy to see Amanda and Snow taking a dick or two
No more HiroshimaNo more Nagasaki
>>20550965Forgot all about that one
>>20550968So did the people making it.
>>20551028And the people subbing it. I don't think avyone even cared when it was picked up again.
>>20545208Wait, he did Phantom? God that ending was so cheap
>>20545208The second half of that crashes and burns so hard it's not even funny.
>>20551347>>20551358He didn't write the ending btw, it was an idea of director
>>20551666It went nuts when the loli aged up. Unless you're telling me the whole second half wasn't him, the ending is just icing on the cake.
>>20548413More like an entire gang's worth, given some of Nitroplus' other works.>>20550965I still don't get the bizarro ending after rewatching it years later.
>>20542295>08I downloaded it back when it's airring and I still didn't watch it to this day kek
>>20554571At the very least she'd be the meat in a Joseph Hermann sandwich. The big titty chinese girl would probably get raped silly.
>>20546113Haven't seen it but heard Zetman is cool.
>>20555685It was alright but it really condenses the manga
>>20551666He directed the original game
>>20555685the manga is way way wayyyyyy better
>>20555574There'd also be tentacle rape and maybe parasite sex suit, given all the monster forms.
>>20557864and Katsura never finished it
>>20542295I have yet to watch it but I came across its opening song and eventually the opening itself. I like those.
I wonder if you can get infected via sex
