The Go Nagai wiki is frightening and possibly managed by one person.

oh god this wiki is so lame. seems like it’s written by one guy who likes Go Nagai ‘ironically’ who tries to pull pre-web 2.0 ‘witty’ quips on everything.

Teaser & Poster for the upcoming Lupin III : Jigen Daisuke no Bohyo movie directed by Takeshi Koike

the lighting on that poster is really gross. All-Star Superman-ass shit.

I don’t really like the CG use.

it’s clear it will be more serious, but then, we’re focusing on a character that has had multiple successful stories that were more serious in the past, so as long as they don’t go Fujiko on us, it could work.

I do wish they went further in the direction of either Lupin-style or Koike-style instead of something that doesn’t really take a bold step in either direction. but eh, I’m still cautiously optimistic.

this movie will spawn a lot of (well, even more) Jigen/Lupin yaoi.

until today I had only seen the first two parts of the “There she is!!” Newgrounds flash series (long story short I was a very insecure 13 year old in 2005 and would unironically love them and then go on MSN and say “ugh, fucking kawaii bullshit why is this so popular”)

well I kinda outgrew Newgrounds around 2008, which is a shame because that’s exactly when the creator uploaded three more parts. and did something really interesting with the story, taking it to a pretty dark place. except that it feels like the dark stuff was always there from the very beginning, albeit subtle, and it was all planned out. it all comes together naturally without a hint of the “edginess” that Newgrounds often stands for and without wallowing in hate or self-pity at any point and still maintaining a positive, unpretentious and human outlook that never childishly caricatures any aspect of the serious real-world issues it’s based around.

I’ll just copypaste a MSN conversation I had with a friend that I think summarizes my feelings pretty well (also I’m too lazy to write a big effortpost (also, spoilers, I recommend you watch it all first if you haven’t)):

[04:53:06] busterbeam .: the bit where the hearts erase the NO RACE MIXING/RACE MIXING FTW signs and they start ‘dancing’ through the shit thrown at them made me think
[04:53:10] busterbeam .: ‘this is way too good for newgrounds’
[04:53:29] busterbeam .: like it’s genuinely weird how some people go through a crazy amount of effort just to upload some newgrounds flash
[04:53:45] busterbeam .: next to MARIO GETS MAD AND SAYS FUCKWORDS AT BOWSER or whatever
[04:55:50] busterbeam .: i like how no one was really dehumanized in this
[04:56:01] busterbeam .: like obviously it took the ‘prejudice is bad’ stance but not in the way some tumblr comic would
[04:56:32] G: You mean not in the LITERAL SCUM BEINGS THAT SHOULD BE WIPED FROM THE EARTH way?
[04:56:39] busterbeam .: more like
[04:56:40] busterbeam .: for one
[04:57:32] busterbeam .: you know how one of the rabbit punks goes from sorta supporting them to being like ‘ok fuck that guy’ to supporting him whole heartedly

or how they portray the pro-bunny-cat-love group as just as much of a hivemind that gets in the way
[04:57:44] busterbeam .: and it specifically made a point (visually in a clever way) that the main love story matters more than the politics surrounding it
[04:57:52] busterbeam .: I dunno it’s just
[04:57:53] busterbeam .: really clever
[04:57:56] busterbeam .: in general
[04:58:29] G: Also notice how, in episode three, the first time you see the “pro-love” supporters, they’re just uselessly standing around with signs.
[04:58:40] G: One of them even holds a sign in front of their face to conceal their identity.
[04:58:46] busterbeam .: oh shit
[04:58:48] busterbeam .: I didn’t notice that
[04:58:51] G: I GUESS IT’S NOT SO DIFFERENT FROM TUMBLR AFTER ALL ZING
[04:59:57] G: Also, BOTH sides leave graffiti on the cat’s (Nabi) house.
[05:00:17] G: You can see among the vandalism there’s a “My hero” or something like that in English.
[05:00:31] G: So it’s like, what the fuck? Why would you do that to his home if you support him?
[05:02:13] busterbeam .: yeah it’s like, he took this cutesy stuff and made it serious and dark but in a genuinely mature way where it doesn’t wallow in the dark aspects and still has an earnestly hopeful outlook all throughout

this is a huge contrast from the newgrounds idea of ‘mature’ which is basically ‘mario grows an ms paint dick and fucks yoshi in the bum hole’
[05:02:55] busterbeam .: and holy shit it’s really really well directed, like the way everything is shot and composed and paced and how it’s synced to the music etc, this dude knows what he’s doing on every level
[05:03:53] G: It feels more from the heart than from the head.
[05:04:15] busterbeam .: it feels like both imo. like there’s clear control here, it feels planned out, but it also feels earnest
[05:06:40] G: Also something to note
[05:06:55] G: So at the beginning of episode 5 we see the tree with all the green ribbons
[05:07:22] G: And then at the end, it goes from a black screen to opening up a shot on a branch with green, then revealing the whole scene to show a tree with budding leaves.
[05:07:53] G: So it’s like the lost lives and love were being replaced with a new spring, a new beginning.
[05:09:03] busterbeam .: good observation
