I started watching Spy Family. Very good in the first three episodes.
I'm halfway through edge runners, I'm getting a big time cowboy bebop vibe from this show, its awesome. Though like Spike Spiegel, i can already imagine the ending David is going to have, its like he's doomed or something.Finished Edgerunners. Again, it is fucking awesome all the way through. It's really refreshing to see a modern anime that knows exactly who it's audience is and it does not give a shit if that's not you. It looks fantastic (aside from a couple of more ambitious shots where they used some jank 3D) and is very stylish without coming off as unnecessary or ostentatious. It also becomes slowly more stylish the further it goes to match what's happening story and character wise. The soundtrack is also great, I don't know if Akira Yamaoka just did the actual score or if he also selected the rest of the tracks but it fits perfectly.
I was also really surprised by how original it still managed to be given just how many things it is comprised of. There's everything from Aeon Flux and The Fast and Furious to Project A-ko and Ninja Scroll and it manages to pull it off completely, it never feels like they are doing it just to make a reference. It also manages to avoid almost every single horrible anime trope of the last 20 years. It's honestly a miracle that it turned out so good considering that it's Netflix and based on a video game. Studio Trigger really knocked it out of the park.
Let's just say there is a lot of foreshadowing in that show.I'm halfway through edge runners, I'm getting a big time cowboy bebop vibe from this show, its awesome. Though like Spike Spiegel, i can already imagine the ending David is going to have, its like he's doomed or something.
Season three galvatron insane but in the headmasters he's just a goofball just wait and see later on how he's defeated it's a wtf moment.Watched some more Headmasters. Soundwave & Blaster didn't stay dead for long and are already back in action, but Soundwave is Soundblaster now, and Blaster is blue (further driving home the fact that he's a second-rate Soundwave wannabe) and renamed Twincast. Optimus Prime died, again (rolls eyes), the Matrix was restored and Hot Rod became Rodimus Prime, again (rolls eyes harder). The episodes have been pretty mediocre so far, but, I am VERY excited for the next one though: Battle Beasts!!!
Galvatron sums things up pretty well, before getting thrown into a wall
I rather like it when the Decepticons, Cobra Commander, Skeletor, Shredder, etc. are just inept goofballs, it makes them more lovable and entertaining to me. In Victory, I didn't like when Deathsaurus suddenly became competent towards the end and started nuking populated human cities and the Autobots couldn't do anything under the threat of him annihilating more if they interfered with Decepticon energy thefts--that's too hardcore for a kid's cartoon.
I should go back and watch all of Transformers G1 again when I'm done with the Japanese sequels.
