Saw the first ep. I wanted to keep an open mind about this, but man...
Starting with appearances. I don't hate the character redesigns as much as some other people seem to, but I do still think they're not great. They look a bit derpy. I don't know why they felt the need to give Vash a gaudy scifi looking arm. keeping the nature of his arm secret in the original meant he didn't have all his cards on the table, it was just one of the many tricks up his sleeves. It was logical to just have a normal looking arm.
A lot of the animation seems overly exaggerated, but that stuff isn't what really bugs me. In the original you have this desert planet, maybe it's a post apocalyptic earth, maybe it's a stylized version of the old west, maybe it's just a fantasy world. It takes time to peel away the layers and unveil the reality of the situation and why these people are on this planet, as we also slowly learn the backstory of our main character, who and what he is. Instead, the remake's opening scene throws that all out the window and explains everything upfront. By the end of the first ep they unveil Vash's brother is behind the disaster, that he's the big baddy of the series and so on. Can't say I much like the idea of dumping everything right up front. So instead we get this huge and abrupt shift from Eve Online to Boarderlands. I could see it working if the first ep or two was just life on the ship, establishing these character would make rem's loss and knives betrayal have that much more of an impact, instead they rush all that. Our first intro to vash shows him hung upsidedown and left to die, which I think is just their way of showing him with out stretched hair like his old look as a kind of nod to the original character design. That just left me wonder why in the hell the gang that did that wouldn't turn him in for the reward money. I feel like I could keep going on and on with things that seemed dumb or annoying but in the end, it just doesn't feel like it's very well thought out. Feels like they're just intending on going with style over substance, but it doesn't even look that great. I'll probably keep going, but my expectations are pretty low now.

Why was the older thread deleted? While I've only finished the first episode, I thought it was at least promising as a slice of life.

Given that the story is about struggling comedians, I think it's to be expected that the jokes will fall a bit flat. (It also doesn't help that the fuckishit subs supposedly clobber any semblance of a joke. There are alternate ones made courtesy of someone on 4/a/, but they're delayed by a week).

I wonder if they'll keep the train joke as a running gag throughout the show. At some point it's got to elicit a chuckle at least.

>It's trivial to see that if you preserve only popular files, eventually the long tail of "unpopular" files will disappear.
You're making the assumption that people will only have an interest in popular files. If people distribute what they're interested in, even less popular things will be preserved. What will disappear is that which nobody has enough of an interest in to distribute.
>> No. 36937 [Edit]

>that which nobody has enough of an interest in
Which is quite literally the definition of unpopular. The pool of people distributing is a subset (and likely not even a representative one at that) of the population at large, and has the obvious constraint of temporality. If you can guarantee that no person anywhere in the world in the future will ever have in interest in that file, then I agree there's no point preserving it. That's a very strong assumption to make, and under those odds the marginal utility of archiving an additional copy of a popular file is entirely dwarfed by the marginal utility of archiving an unpopular one.

I don't agree. Death Note is popular. I would not call some of the things I've archived popular, but I archived them, because I'm interested in them, in an archeologist sort of way.

>>36938
> I would not call some of the things I've archived popular
That doesn't contradict my point in any way. All things that are at risk of disappearing are unpopular. Not all unpopular things are at risk of disappearing. I will admit that saying "is the definition of" implies a biconditional, not one-way implication (*), which is my bad for not being precise enough (I'd assumed it was self-evident enough that colloquial language would be sufficient, but I guess not). Either way quibbling over the definition of "unpopular" doesn't have any material bearing on the second (and more significant) aspect to >>36937


(*) I'm fairly certain the biconditional actually does hold, you just need to more precisely/formally define "unpopular" instead of handwaving it. But that's an orthogonal discussion.

I get why they didn't want to have GoodJob-san just buy things, because then it's not a team effort. It doesn't quite seem like they destroyed the clubhouse entirely, and I guess they'll probably patch the floor of it later. I guess if you want to put the literary goggles on you can handwave something about how the tree house inherits the spirit of the old clubhouse, or how it marks a new generation of DIYers so it's only fitting that the old one be disassembled. But I would have preferred they do something cool like that thatched roof she mentioned.

The first two episodes were a bit rocky, but I think it's hitting its stride in the 3rd episode. Even if you don't care for rakugo, assuming it keeps with this pacing it's worth watching solely for the interaction between the tanuki and kitsune-shishou. Too often in shows like this (e.g. Konohana Kitan) the "teacher" is portrayed as strict for no good reason, I think this is the first time I've seen "strictness" done right, in an almost gentle way. Bunko might even be described more as tsundere than "strict," but you can see she genuinely cares for Mameda and the master-apprentice relationship is heartwarming.

It also helps that the rakugo jokes and final punchline were actually quite funny this time. The story seems to be "Sanmai Kishou". Fine-tuned subs are posted in >>/sub/ in case anyone would like to use them (which I recommend you do, since both b-global and CR miss the mark).

Young bunko is very cute. And with the context of what happened, it's no surprise that she takes a liking to Mameda. The parallels between them are clear, and yet somehow Bunko's original reason for doing rakugo seems more tragic. And the historical context of what followed the Taisho era makes this somehow even more poignant.

I have no idea what the context for these two are, but I like the tune and the second made me at least laugh (reference to toki soba tale)

Episode 12 felt a bit lazy on the rakugo parts, it was tales we'd already seen. And was another explanation of "Sanmai Kishou" really needed? Feels like this one was a filler episode, but I guess it's building to that finale.

It's no wonder they would be, considering only girls can be witches, and only a select few from that, and even among those they can only practically serve as a witch for -10 years before they lose their power.

Just finished Luminous Witches, and oh boy that final ep was a complete mess. I can't remember the last time I saw something that poorly slapped together. From the editing to the directing to the writing, just wow. It felt like watching a long music video with the spastic clips from previous eps edited in, performance that didn't skip a beat in spite of what was going on, and how rushed and disjointed things felt.
Maybe it was just me, but the way they illustrated people from around the world watching the performance just looks terrible. It took a good long while to even understand what I was looking at. The wavy lines on all the people watching combined with the bright red/yellow simply made it look like the audience was really hot. From a distance when you first see them, it just looked like a weird pattern. It went on for some time before anyone said what was going on. Maybe if they were more transparent or something it might have made more sense.

As for the rest of the series, I think it's decent enough. Nothing fantastic, it's about what you'd expect from an idol spin off of strike witches. The music is a bit forgettable and the performances are just okay. You'd think they'd be a lot more interesting than they are with flight being added into them but they're just kind of meh, at least to me. Characters are cute and likable enough, and it does help in providing some world building. It's nice to know there's a place for girls with powers in this universe who can't use said powers in any practical way. If nothing else, I preferred this over brave witches.


On a slightly unrelated note. I've spoken with a few people about strike witches recently and noticed a bit of a pattern. A couple of them said they only saw the "first episode" and didn't feel inclined to keep watching after that. One of them, maybe both, seemed to be referring to the OVA. I think it's a bit sad people would judge the franchise based off that terrible OVA. Seems a lot of people don't realize that the OVA is an entirely different take on the material, and is best skipped and ignored. At best it's just something to visit out of morbid curiosity. You could almost go as far as to say the first season is a remake. Hopefully if more latecomers decide to give the f

Seems like the VA for Rei was recast due to the original VA suffering from vocal cord edema:
https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2022-09-28/d4dj-franchise-recasts-maiko-irie-as-rei-togetsu/.190298

It's a shame, Rei's soothing voice was in the original was a nice contrast to Rinku's (c.f. [1, 2])

[2] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jrQGSpA35w

Also [2] above, Kokoro Odoru, is a great song. It's only a cover, not an original, but it fits Happy Around really well, and after their experimentation with rap lyrics in the last 2 episodes they probably might have come up with something like that anyway.

Second season (All Mix) is out. I'm a bit disappointed the focus is on the other groups this time. Rinku made 1st season so endearing. And song or character-image wise I'm not a particular fan of Lyrical Lilly group. Also I've never played the game so I don't have any exposure to the other groups outside the albums, which means seeing the other groups is a bit confusing without knowing who is who. But I guess that's my fault, I won't fault the anime for assuming that you've played the game.

Ep6 of all mix (s2) is really interesting, one of the most creative uses of English fluidly intermixed with Japanese dialogue I've seen. And it's particularly unique in that it takes advantage of the fact that Maho's VA does indeed speak English with pretty good fluency (there's a bit of an accent so it's not perfect [unlike like that one other VA/youtuber I don't remember the who genuinely is indistinguishable from a english native], but I think that gets a pass).

I've been thinking recently about the nature of evil. All the events of this show are instigated or inspired by the ambitions of one man who is inspired...who is not satisfied with the common path in life. When Dio is offered the opportunity to gain powers beyond the ordinary man's wildest dreams, he takes it with both hands. He recognises the limits of the form that he inhabits and he glady transcends them.

Meanwhile, Jonathon spends his time on youthful fancies and is quite a boring and ignorant character until he is forced to surpass himself by Dio. And this improvement is the weight that Dio takes upon himself! His passion overflows to the entirety of the human race and forces them to either die or improve themselves! And in the end he is destroyed by his passion but not before performing his great work.

Good requires a certain inheritence from evil in order to truly be good. At the end of part 1 Jonathan mentions to Erina that he did it all to protect her world but the truth is that he did not protect it at all! The world had to be altered, to be improved before Jonathon could truly protect it. Dio dragged Jonathon to a higher level of conciousness and that conciousness also emanates down to Erina. The old world has been annihilated! That is the nature of evil! I, too, can feel this passion running through my veins!!!

I also have been feeling an urge recently to take bizzare postures and hand movements when I talk. Does anyone know what that's about?

I can't deny that the character design and visuals are great, but at least to me the massive hype seems a bit unwarranted considering the story ultimately doesn't feel very novel, it reminded me a lot of Release the Spyce. Then again I suppose that it's "familiarity" (in the sense of not being too unorthodox) is a major component of its popularity, since truly unorthodox shows are often polarizing and fall by the wayside

>the character design and visuals are great,
Yeah that's pretty much it. It mostly just looks nice. Has a nice concept behind it too, but has a lot of wasted potential and bad writing on top of that. There's stuff to like, such as close quarters gun fights that feel straight out of john wick, but then they have the same problem a lot anime does where they sprinkle on a heavy coat of stupid crap that ignores physics, doesn't make sense, or doesn't work that way because "it looks cool". Like a guy getting into a car as it violently explodes, and instead of being killed he simply gets flung to the side.

At this point I'm sure you could probably just use transformer models as an arbitrary tool to compute these clusterings. It's a strict superset of word2vec type similarity things, and it clearly have leaned some embedding. Although I just tried on one and without prompting it recommended Higurashi as something similar to NNB (first two were k-on and yuru camp though), after more prompt examples it managed to do decently. It manages to do general clustering (anime like X anime) but doesn't manage to get semantic relations right (anime like X but without Y theme).
