an hero to us all

Just another weblog

tales of the abyss 1 (raw vers.)

with one comment

three spoiler-filled conclusions from watching it raw over lamb soup:

1. either i’ve been spoilt by watching only mecha porn over the past year (my life lived only for SPREADSHEETING) or this first episode got an even smaller budget than the symphonia ovas. 😥 it was a lot like watching a partly animated radio drama – playing it in the background gave me flashbacks to unfortunate facials, guh.

2. still loving it all, though. plenty of things to please japanese game fans – lots of asch cameos, jade/guy and asch/luke juxtaposition, backstory highlights like the sword of gardios and cold, young guy, motifs and imagery – for example the episode preview in the OP ‘as foretold by the score’ or ED, har har, and karma, of course. lots of changes made in terms of pacing and some to events, for example natalia being introduced this early instead of it being exclusively the luke and guy show, the exposition on the order of lorelei and the oracle knights (as far as i can gather), and the rapid, bloody skip through tartaroo valley, which i felt they should’ve lingered on more for sentimental reasons…

3. however i am NOT pleased at the OP trolling me, especially after getting trolled thrice in rapid succession by gurren lagann, macross frontier, and THEN code geass.

couple screencaps after the jump.

troll me, sunrise, just say that you troll me ;A;

always good for a lol.

according to this canon though, luke didn’t collar him, luke did! *g*

though i never imagined him this way, i actually like aggressive young luke


the ed is lovely – throwbacks to the game’s credits, anyone?

next up: cheagle woods.

  1. WOMAN –

    IT WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER TO KEEP TRACK OF YOUR AWESOME ABYSS BLOG IF IT WERE, YOU KNOW, ON LIVEJOURNAL – but who am I to say, yes? 😉 Work and a case I have termed my Millefiore case is eating me alive, however, I am happy to see all these lovely, lovely Abyss screenshots and love.

    So much Mieu. *loves!*

    the ed is lovely – throwbacks to the game’s credits, anyone?
    Yes! I thought the same thing.

    Also, yes, the anime: tiny, tiny budget. Also, if you’ve been watching Geass and Gurren Lagann and Gundam and The Like, OF COURSE you’ve been spoiled. Rotten. YOU WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED WITH SHODDY ANIMATION AGAIN. NEVER.

    your mafia love
