*watches first three episodes of the simuldub Darling in the Franxx*

...so this is just Kill la Kill + Evangelion?
Isn't that an accurate description of like 25% of all anime?

Out of context in the sense that every work ever is a derivative of something else? I...GUESS.

In my context? Not really.

I bring up Kill la Kill because in a sense, Darling in the Franxx is a thematic sequel to that show with the themes being about sexuality.

And Evangelion due to how a.) character's personal self-esteem and worth (especially our main hero Hiro) is tied to competency on piloting a giant robot, and b.) that some of the design aesthetics tied to the mechs are very reminiscent to Evangelion specifically.

The last bit is significant, as is commonly known, Studio Trigger is made up of creatives formerly from Gainax, the studio that birthed Evangelion.

Discotek will be releasing the two Zatch Bell movies in America.

I hope this might push Viz to do a 3 in one for the series, they ended up canceling the manga translations

That was due to the author having a falling out with the original publishers in Japan who Viz had a deal with. If not for that, they would've finished the series as it was selling rather well for them.

I too watched Darling in the Franxx.... It’s like an unintentional comedy.... It’s got some serious mood whiplash. One minute the main character talks about what it means to live, the next there’s ass controllers. It’s pretty funny xD

Does anyone have any recommendations for anime based on Japanese history and folklore?
Inuyasha!

I'm loving DARLING in the FRANXX. Zero Two is an absolute waifu, and I'm enjoying the action and character arcs so far.

I haven't watched anything this week, though. Need to take a day and catch up.

I just thought about it but we’re the zatch bell demons supposed to be toys of some kind?

Kanchome a given as a weird baby toy
Gash was a dummy
Tio was a doll
Umagon was a stuffed horse
