  1. Sorry, was on a hold while I was reading a book. This week, we have on our plate NHK ni Youkoso: A psychological dramedy, which follows the story of a 22-year boy named Tatsohiru satou who is a hikikomori and unable to face the society. While a bit slow story and some good comedy in punches in between at some points, it doesn't ended the way I would've hoped and expected for which I eagerly waited for while watching till end. It raises some questions like what is it that make sometime a person avoid the society to extreme and live in it's small world of it's own. I have been a h
  2. Do watch death note too @rudilla whenever u find time. It's among top three of the most loved anime on all time best anime list worldwide. has a rating of 9.3 around even after a near million votes.
  3. I am sorry for late reply. I was thinking on what you wrote and took me some time to get my views organized. I felt the same on the point that why should one bringing chaos should live. But when I thought deeply about it, I felt there could be other side to this also. Doesn't the one bringing chaos helps improve humankind altogether ? Everytime someone commits a crime, it sure cause a hurt and loss to people whose damage is irreparable. But then, there is also a chance to understand human behaviour through someone who commits crime. It tells the sources of vices coming in people and ways
  4. wow, interesting plot....... will watch it. Sorry i didn't got any notification of this thread I don't know why. couldn't find details related to travel by satellite and world peace on internet although. But it seems promising to watch and find something new.So, added to watch-list. This plot reminded of fullmetal alchemist in which some people justified killing of some people to create philosopher's stone and that the protagonist (our hero) is totally against it even when he need the stone for his brother badly. However, it doesn't focus on world peace mainly. however, there ar
  5. Hey everyone, I am making threads on whatever series I watch and views on what I felt while watching the series reagarding it's philosophy or message conveyed. Given that I have a limit on number of series I have watched which I will keep adding here, I request other members to open threads on other series also which they found similarly interesting personally so that I (and everyone else) may find new series and learn about them by watching or discussing them here. I am expanding the scope of this thread from anime series to even hollywood tv series for your conviniences (but I will tr
  6. thanks for your excellent views @rudilla.......... your valuable mature response is always awaited from my side...... yeah, the butterfly effect you talked about is what's shown very beautifully in steins;gate in which okabe (protagonist) thinks changing past slightly won't make much difference in present untill he realizes that even the slightest of changes can erase the existence of some of people around him. So, your view in this regard, each and every word are absolutely spot on. It has been brilliantly shown in the series how if time travel becomes possible, time will become a w
  7. Steins:gate, a series which is personally one of the closest to my heart, which presents a simple question to you; Do you really need to change your past in order to correct your mistakes or fulfill your wish OR should you accept whatever happens to you in your life as a matter of fate and live accordingly. The story in steins: gate has raised this question very eloquently in which the protagonist okabe rintarou accidentally invents a time machine which can send message back to past and thus modifying decisions in order to correct the future which is the present. But he does all this only
  8. yea, it just has 13 episodes. so 4-5 hours of mini marathon will be good.....
  9. quite a nice one @rudilla......especially loved the last part..... it really just felt like someone deeply thought something in mind. I believe there is more in your subconscious mind than what came out in those lines, so will wait till u spill out some more next time...... will add some more angles in this discussion later...... elfen lied was a good series only when you can understand what is in it which is not shown explicitly.For a normal person, it will just be a regular watch without helping him getting what it wanted to reveal...... so a very nice applaud for the cr
  10. well, while i agree with many points in your lines, i am still not sure whether we could leave anything to chance. For some reasons, i cudn't understand fully ever why it's difficult to accommodate the differences among each other. They fight over religious differences, cultural differences, physical and even colour differences. But they forget, all these differences emerged after the origin of humanity itself and not the reverse, i.e. humans, when started on earth had similarities in all aspects but differences emerged due to various external and internal influences to improve the adaptibilit
  11. Elfen lied, one of finely crafted art-work, which raised question on how do you see a person different than you or on odds with the accepted societal standards, norms and values. Whether you hate the difference or embrace it by heart is decided on basis of many factors which could range from threat to your culture to threat to your survival and presents a big dilemma, of which the most important is resolving the conflict between humanity and conciliation with other kind of people with differences. The difference could range from biological, sociological, cultural or any other perspectives you
  12. that was quite informative @Beocat....... i was not aware of the static sequences part but yes, the variety in the content in huge amount is what makes me love anime series.........
  13. As martin luther king jr. said: "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere"........ I am sure most of you people have seen death note based purely on the question of the way of deliverance of justice (by kira). So, what is your conception and meaning of justice ?? Do you think kira was right in the way he acted for justice. Why and why not ??
  14. in psycho pass, they have shown that the system won't do good because at the end of the day, you can't predict what a person will do ultimately but preventing it only on basis of a persons' tendencies. So, it surely is a faulty system because then there could be some people who can deceive system through one means or the other. But the serial is not like an Artificial intelligence, the era in which we have entered. So, a person can deceive a system only once but no other person can then repeat it since AI can evolve itself continuously. Question is whether any such kind of technocratic sy
  15. The series has a bold new conception of a alternative system of society where a person's behaviour and tendencies are determined by the biometric scan value surrounding her called the psycho pass. How right do you feel this system is ? In the era of mass data repositories and surveillance, every move and behaviour of a person can be similarly determined by tech-giants and the government. They know what we are looking for, what we are thinking off and what we are preparing for. Unless a person is living totally cut-off from any kind of communication devices, his/her whole life can be
