I’m an Alien

So, this is another one of those episodes that kind of hurts me, much like episode 21. It’s for the same reason, too; the animation is very inconsistent. When it’s good, it’s good; when it’s bad, it’s down right awful.

I’ve heard that this episode was outsourced to the same studio that did episode 21, and it really shows. I’m honestly beginning to feel like David Production is the opposite of Toei now, in terms of consistency. Remember how awful the first two seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal looked at times? Diamond is Unbreakable is getting to that point. Now, the thing is that David Production CAN really shine if they have the budget/time/motivation, I know they can, and Toei had to change up a decent amount of the staff to make Sailor Moon Crystal shine.

I honestly don’t know what’s going on with David Production. It’s probably just budgeting issues, but darn if it isn’t really obnoxiously annoying.

Rohan Kishibe’s Adventure

I have a new computer! My old one was getting really slow (I couldn’t even play Diablo III on it reliably) so I finally upgraded. Now that everything is set up on it, I can get to reviewing the most recent JoJo episode. 🙂

Recap/Review: I was pretty disappointed with how inconsistent the animation was in the Ratt episode (episode 16), and so I had some reservations about this one before starting to watch it. This episode is important to the overarching plot of Diamond is Unbreakable, so I wanted the animation to be good, at the very least.

Thankfully, I discovered that the Ratt episode was under the supervision of a different animation director than usual, so that kind of explained a lot. The same animation director worked on the DIO fight episodes from Stardust Crusaders, which were also pretty inconsistent! The more you know, right?

Episode 17, I believe, was done by the ‘regular’ director, so it’s kind of like night and day in regards to quality versus the Ratt episode.

Let’s Go to The Manga Artists House, Part 2

Recap: When we last left Koichi, he was mysteriously compelled to return to Rohan Kishibe’s home, where the manga artist quickly stated that he was expecting the company. Considering how strange he acted in the previous episode, we can only assume that Rohan will have more up his sleeve here as well.
