Godzilla 2017 anime (likely to drop 2018, but eh, minor details.)

12 July 2017 - 10:26 PM

 

So, we (and by we, i mean those of us following this bit of news) all knew it would be CGI, it was announced as such from day 2, maybe even day 1, but i wasn't actually there day 1. the animation to me looks pretty good, and this is the studio that made Knights of Sidonia, and Aijin, so their animation record as far as CGI goes, is definitely on track. we don't know too much more than: humans were driven from the earth by the kaiju, namely godzilla, and in this particular timeline, godzilla is far larger, and likely far stronger, than any godzilla to this date (including burning godzilla and shin godzilla). the planet that humanity fled to is simply uninhabitable for humans, and so they have launched a mission to reclaim the earth from the king of the monsters. Our MC, Haru is the unlucky bloke with a hate-boner for godzilla the size of king kong who'll be undertaking this mission, alongside his plucky and colorful cast of comrades, all of whom (hopefully) boast the skills to make it in this new, hostile territory, and reclaim what was once their spot, at the top of the food chain.

 

that being said, my own opinion is that this anime will be pretty good, but criminally underrated.

my reasons are as follows:

 

all that said, this is a monster movie, i hope that the plot, and the non-monster characters are not one-sided, but that still falls on the backburner, the monsters make the movie, and i like what i've seen so far of the designs, and the world, so as long as we get at least KoS quality animation, and a respectable amount of battles and development, i'll be pretty happy.

 

 

discuss.

1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters

Once per turn: You can Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower monster from your hand. You cannot conduct your Battle Phase the turn you activate this effect. Once per turn: You can destroy a Field Spell Card and gain 1000 Life Points, then you can add 1 Field Spell Card from your Deck to your hand.

 

Well, it's a fairly iconic monster, and it's never gotten any real support in the 5D's anime, leading me to want something designed to improve on it's base form (yes, i know the alternate pixie dragon exists, but a direct upgrade, instead of a direct retrain would be nice, like clear wing to crystal)

 

As far as strategies, the card's rather outclassed by direct archetype support, and with the arrival of links and rival arrival, it won't even have much use in decks not meant directly for it, though with the uptick in field spell relevance, i suppose it does potentially have a lot going for it in particular duels. but the loss of the BP when using the SS effect takes away from much of the advantage that you could have gained with it.

 

 

Still, this is my third favorite signer after BRD and RDA, so feel free to say anything or nothing about this card. do you like it? hate it? is there a deck that uses it well that i'm not yet aware of? does the art offend you? does the art please you? do you want me to stop asking questions? discuss.

 

 

 


Bloom Prima, the Melodious Choir

1 "Melodious Maestra" monster + 1 or more "Melodious" monsters
This card gains 300 ATK for each Fusion Material used for its Fusion Summon. This card can make a second attack during each Battle Phase. If this Fusion Summoned card is sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 "Melodious" monster in your Graveyard; add it to your hand.
 
so, i was thinking of decks that might benefit from FF coming off the list, and i realized shortly after having that thought, that bloom prima meant there was another deck besides infernoids and cyber dragons that could, if they so chose to, mill every monster that you didn't want in the deck.
my own thoughts
 
so discuss, i know it won't be meta, that much is a given, but are there any other ways that i may be missing to improve the effectiveness of bloom prima?

If your opponent Special Summoned a monster this turn: Activate this card by targeting 1 monster in your opponent's Graveyard; Special Summon it to your side of the field in Defense Position. When this card leaves the field, banish that monster. When that monster leaves the field, destroy this card.

 

aside from being completely adorable, this card has some pretty fun implications, it's basically a chainable autonomous action unit, that banishes your opponent's monster if it's removed from the field post resolution, and has some hilarious interactions with cards like emeral, dd crow, and zoodiac combo. in addition to that, with only 2 ratpier in the meta, and many meta decks still currently running zoo, you could feasibly side, if not run this, in a ton of decks atm and gain massive benefit from doing so. and that's to say nothing of what paleozoics can do with this card.

 

so discuss, is it a worth a test run? on paper it's not too powerful, but in game, i think it'd be worth the spot.


suicide thought prompt

Interesting legal idea, if you passed a law that the legal guardian or next of kin of a suicide victim would be prosecuted, would that make people think twice...eitherway we're a bit off topic here

in this thread, i'd like to discuss killing yourself. and potential ways to prevent it. if you want to discuss ways to increase it, that's fine too.

 

so starting with the initial prompt for the idea (thank you winter), let's discuss how effective it might be to pass a law like this. if the next of kin (within reason) were to be held liable for your death, do you think it would help lower the amount of suicides? personally, i think it would be lowered, but the people committing suicide would shift sideways, from those who can't handle life but love their family, to those who could handle life, but have no way to get out of a shitty situation and want some way to end the pain and strike back simultaneously. it'd be a new niche to affect basically, a smaller one doubtless, but one that's far easier to affect.
