Dream Anime Vice Review #224: Pop Team Epic


Taka: Never saw the original. I should after seeing the other one. People said Blood+ was the better one. Oct 8, 2021 3:23:33 GMT
Old Man Dream: Look on Tubi. The whole series is up on it and yes, it's the best of the Blood anime that have been made. The movie adaptation, Blood: The Last Vampire, and later spinoff, Blood-C, don't hold a candle to it. Oct 8, 2021 9:32:37 GMT
Master Menos: Seen them all actually, and I loved Blood+ the best, too. Would totally re-watch. Oct 8, 2021 14:27:06 GMT
Taka: Here is our Top Manga series of 2020! Oct 10, 2021 2:10:12 GMT
Taka: Finally, here is our Top Anime series of 2020! Oct 10, 2021 3:35:55 GMT
Old Man Dream: Imagine Anzai in Edward's place for this and you have my honest thoughts on how frustrating it is for me to cream through Devils' Line right now. Oct 12, 2021 23:41:40 GMT
Taka: I remember watching Devils' Line. I can't remember any issues I had. I have to look at my comments. Oct 13, 2021 2:07:17 GMT
Old Man Dream: One of those familiar vampire stories in a modern setting where the male lead hates himself because of his vampiric nature and is in love with a human woman. The execution of the whole story is pretty clumsy and from what I gather, the anime is... Oct 13, 2021 9:20:17 GMT
Old Man Dream: ...rushing through 40 chapters of manga material to fit into 12 anime episodes. Definitely shows with how quickly it's creaming through events, with the main couple being bland between angsty male vampire and the human female devoted to him. Oct 13, 2021 9:21:50 GMT
Old Man Dream: Besides that plot, said male lead's involved with a secret government agency tasked with controlling vampires that give into their bloodlust. Oct 13, 2021 9:22:42 GMT
Old Man Dream: And adding more insult to injury, the new Injustice animated movie is a big mess. Oct 14, 2021 1:39:37 GMT
Taka: I read through my comments. Bloodlust and rapes along with innuendos. The romance I never mentioned of - with the details you mentioned - I remembered now it was pretty bad. Oct 14, 2021 4:39:16 GMT
Old Man Dream: I'm thankfully pretty far in the series. Just have 3 more episodes, which I should get taken care of by tomorrow evening. Kind of regret thinking this would be a good title to dabble into for Halloween. Oct 14, 2021 9:17:57 GMT
Old Man Dream: At last, I'm done. Devils' Line review is up. May I never have to suffer through that again. Yeesh! Oct 15, 2021 1:01:02 GMT
Taka: Didn't catch the Injustice movie. Waiting for it to be digitally available. That's a shame. Oct 15, 2021 1:57:55 GMT
Old Man Dream: The movie got leaked online a week early before its release date. The negative reception to it, especially with how regarded the comic book and video game versions of Injustice are, got me curious to see how bad it was. I won't spoil things unlike most... Oct 15, 2021 9:18:08 GMT
Old Man Dream: ...folks are unfortunately doing. But I'll just say that it both tries cramming too much into an 80-minute film and alters things rather heavily compared to the game and comics. Oct 15, 2021 9:19:07 GMT
Taka: That is a shame considering they split Long Halloween into two parts. I guess with Injustice, you are appealing to 3 groups: the video game folks, the comic book folks, and then the new fans. Oct 16, 2021 5:59:49 GMT
Old Man Dream: It sounds like you're assuming the games and comics run separate stories. The video game series serves as the main story of the franchise, while the comics serve as prequel or interquel to expand on and fill in the details on events that weren't... Oct 16, 2021 12:33:54 GMT
Old Man Dream: ...elaborated on within the video games. Oct 16, 2021 12:36:18 GMT
