So anyone else see that Netflix picked up a Mecha anime as a "Netflix Original"? , it looks like it could be quite interesting.

At first I thought it was actually funded and developed by Netflix, then I realized it's actually just being distributed statewide by them! XD

The manga looks kinda disturbing. E.g., naked women getting stabbed in the face.

Read it, watched it, still enjoying it.

Sidonia's good sci-fi entertainment, and Tsutomu Nihei's most audience-friendly work. The anime covers about a third or so of where the manga's currently at. While it skips on some of the stuff in the manga, it also makes it easier to understand the stuff it covers as well.

The way the CGI animation is conducted, especially in the earlier episodes, might not appeal to some though.

Now someone go make a BLAME! FPS complete with procedurally-generated rooms (oh, and a time compression feature for the planet-sized ones). :)

I'm really liking he art direction and the hard sci-fi bits(no-one ever really thinks about how one goes to the bathroom in space, in a mech >.>). I'm also liking the CGI. Granted, I also really liked the CGI for Rooster Teeths' RWBY and Disney's Tron: Uprising. It's also gonna make me sad to have to wait for the next season as of tomorrow evening <.<

Well, that, that was excellent. And now the waiting begins.

@Ryujin, now I need to go track down a full copy of BLAME!, because that is an incredibly interesting premise.

Watched the first episode and it looks promising. Looking forward to seeing more.

I've only seen the first episode so far, but it looks like fun. The bit about more than two genders was neat.

I thought the combat was very well done and pretty intense. It's . Not really a spoiler, as I think it's in the series description, but just to be on the safe side...

And yeah, I wind up watching Uprising about twice a year now <.< shame it got canceled for incredibly stupid reasons >.<

If you think anime is "weird", check out some other Japanese
Media... Especially the live action shows like Gekiranger (talking fly), Dekaranger (robot
Dog sidekick), magiranger (sentient houseplant), Toqger (a "living" handpuppet)... Or really just
Tokusatsu in general.

The one thing I would say (and this coming from my own experience staying in japan but also as an antropology student) is that East Asian cultural sensibilities are going to vary from our own... And to try not to expect them to conform to out
Norms but rather to their own.... Fan service and the treatment of women for instance come from a different set of
Experiences and expectations than western culture. (To risk sound like captain obvious)

And while it doesn't relate one-to-one to japan, I know Chinese cinema - HK film in particular - emphasizes a wide range of mood in its films because audiences enjoyed getting a lot of different genres in one sitting. I think Jackie Chan once talked about how HK film had to give people who couldn't afford a lot of things the most bang for their buck.

Oh, I love anime. Of course not all anime falls under the stereotype that the Average Joe expects (at least in Tennessee; the average person thinks "anime" is all cartoon porn from China, no kidding), but having done my time slogging through HuluPlus for new series to watch, I've come to the conclusion that much of it is the same old crap, and those are traits the masses share.

This [spoilered] character may actually help me convince the girlfriend to sit and watch it with me if I ever get around to it myself.
