We got 3 solid episodes of Takt dissing everyone he came across.
In these three episodes, we follow Takt and co as they begin their journey to the New York, while defeating some D2 along the way. We get some fun interactions with ‘Destiny’ and Takt, where we see the beginning of the running gag where she bursts through walls and developed her addiction to calories. Watching Takt and Cosette gradually learn to work with each other was pretty interesting.
Note: this is not much of a review as it is a record of my experience watching this movie.
Bangkok is a crazy city. If you’ve been here once, you’ll get what I mean. And because it’s always so crazy crowded, the pandemic hit us hard and Josee got postponed twice before finally coming to the theaters at the beginning of November 2021.
Even though it’s during a pandemic… the department store that housed the cniema was practically overflowing with people. Especially with kids from the nearby school who were finished with their Saturday classes.
I was already burned out by wading through crowds of people (it’s like Black Friday crowd every single weekend, gosh) to the cinema to buy tickets. I almost shoved a bunch of highschool boys out of the way since they were crowded in front of the ticket machine. I brought my Asian mom with me because she was worried that I’d be in the only person in the theater like that time I was watching Violet Evergarden Movie in March, and she offered to pay for the tickets. So we got the premium couch at the back of the theater because she wanted to sleep throughout the show.
So we grabbed lunch and waited 30 minutes of advertisement before the movie finally started.
After receiving a letter telling that he’s dead to the family, Tamahiko got really ill but recovered due to Yuzuki’s care. He then asked her to go on a trip to Tokyo together in order to get some replacement fabric for the kimono that he ruined.
After we had takt Op. Destiny, we have another anime about a guy with a disabled right arm who’s sort of a pessimist shut-in, who comes to view the world better because of a girl. That’s pretty much the premise of Taisho Maiden Fairy Tale, a story about a girl sent to marry the unwanted bocchan of the Shima family, Tamahiko.
A self-dubbed pessimist hikkikomori, after a car accident that robbed him of both his mother and his right hand, Tamahiko was exiled to a mountain mansion in Chiba to rot away into obscurity. He spends his days imagining and replaying horrible remarks from his family and his nights tossing with insomnia. Until one day, Yuzuki showed up. Yuzuki was bought from her debt-ridden family and sent to become Tamahiko’s bride/caretaker. Her optimism and determination will slowly cause Tamahiko’s life to change.
Once upon a time, a weird black meteorite fell and along with it came D2, alien thingies that attack whatever that makes beautiful noises, be it a huge symphony or a simple piano.
Takt’s father died during the Boston Tragedy, where the D2s attacked during a concert. Since then, he’s been a shut-in, only playing the piano for himself. However, due to a turn of fate, he is now traveling to New York with his friend Anna and ‘Destiny’, a Musicart that’s able to fight the D2s.
We have another anime with the main guy being a shut-in missing his right arm, with the other one being Taisho Otome Otogibanashi. Also, Takt’s seiyuu voices 2 other animes this season. Wowwwww.
At this point, the only Gundam series I’ve watched in entirety is G Gundam (when I was 4 years old). I’ve watched a bit of OO and Seed Destiny while it was airing on TV but was kinda meh. Last year, I also watched Narrative and was thoroughly confused. I don’t know what made me watch Hathaway, but I gotta say, for a non-Gundam fan, it was a pretty good movie.
The movie is about this Hathaway Noa guy, who’s actually a leader of a terrorist group. He befriends a military officer and a weird girl who seems to have like, 3 personalities in one person. Stuff happened.
