And if you haven't seen it by chance.... do that.

 

 

So, I'd initially dropped this series early on, but decided to give it another chance since a lot of people are speaking very highly of it. I'm currently about halfway through & it's well on the way to being my favorite series of the Fall 2018 season which pretty much guarantees it a spot on my Top 10 of 2018. Will post more once I've finished

So, just finished this series and still probably need things to sink in a bit but my theory at the moment is

the girl they show waking up at the end of is Akane and everything that happened was inside her dream

Need a bit more time to really put my thoughts together, but it was quite the ride and in all likelihood my favorite series from the fall season

It was NOT just a dream. Within the world of Gridman lore, there's the real world, and there are virtual worlds. They are every bit as real as the "real" world, despite being virtual. So while I personally do not know how she made this world in its entirety, aside from perhaps Alexis making it for her, that virtual world will absolutely continue existing on its own. Akane may have woken up from being the god of that world, but that world carries on nonetheless.

Ah, I see. So as my observation suggests, I have zero experience with Gridman prior to this series. That & the fact that I've never really been into tokusatsu franchises was one of the reasons I dropped it early on. Still, even though there may have been times I enjoyed the show with a wrong understanding, it doesn't change the fact that I did enjoy it. And the overall message that came across to me was

 

she wanted to escape from the annoyances of her normal world to one where she could control things, even though it turned out she was being manipulated, And in the end she realizes she need to live in the "real world" even with all it's problems

Basically yes. The show's main moral is that it's okay to escape from the real world for a while to get a grip on things, but to always remember to never simply try to run away or avoid your problems, as that doesn't solve anything.

This is the best thing I've seen anyone say about the show:

More like Ultraman & Kamen Rider

This might as well be a mecha series. Ultraman is like power rangers and you know that at the end they always faced off against a giant monster with combined robot parts. 

I happen to like mecha series ever since Super robot wars so this works out.

      Sailor Moon Video Games
      Sailor Moon is a massive franchise, pervading all types of media. This also includes video games! Unfortunately, it is estimated that 90% of these games never have seen official releases outside of Japan. However, fans being amazing as we are, many of these have been translated over the years! I have played a good chunk of these myself, but am still working my way through the vast library of these titles. There are also tons of fan-made games for the franchise, many completely worth playing!
       
      My current focus is the Super Moon Fighter series that was created by Sprite Team (a Japanese gaming company), for the X68000. There are several versions of Sailor Moon fighting games that this company has created, and through the power of the internet I have been able to experience NEARLY all of them. 💫
       
      Sadly, the version of the game that sparked my interest, Super Moon Fighter DX, is the single version that appears to be missing from the internet. Any help in unearthing this version would be greatly appreciated. Below is the character select screen, and some additional sprites for reference. The specifics for this version include that Sailor Moon is now Eternal Sailor Moon, and has Luna as a side kick who can also attack. Also, Super S abilities were added in such as Venus Love and Beauty Shock, Mars Flame Sniper, Jupiter Oak Evolution, etc. It is also the only currently known version of the game to include Sailor Saturn, who is extremely powerful.

       
      Super Moon Fighter aside, I would love for this to just be a general Sailor Moon Video Game Discussion Thread. Speak about whatever you like regarding that subject here! I'll start.
       
      Of all the Sailor Moon video games out there, my favorite would have to be Sailor Moon Another Story. If you are unfamiliar, it's a turn-based battle style JRPG that was officially released on the Super Famicon (SNES) by a company called Angel in 1995. To date, it has never seen an official English translation. However, there have been two largely recognized translations done over the years.
       

      The original fan translation of the game was done by Bishoujo Senshi Translations released in 1999. This translation heavily relies on knowledge of the fan-subtitled Sailor Moon anime, and fansub anime in general. Additionally, the creators had to do some major re-programming to get it to work properly. The translation is not perfect, but is still very well done and does not impede on enjoyment of the game. Some technique descriptions are inaccurate / funny. Example: The link technique that combines Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Uranus is called Fire Thunder Shaking. The description for this attack is "An old man?"
       

      Released 20 years after Bishoujo Senshi Translations' initial release, this is a complete English re-localization of the game. Featured are several fixes to issues and bugs in the original game. There is also a version of this that has some small changes to increase quality of life: that being, double EXP per battle and 1/2 enemy encounter rate as well as adding an attack enhancement item to a shop for Sailor Mercury's solo quest. (Because most people had no idea that her Shabon Spray attack is actually the most useful ability in the game).
      Both versions of the game are available online. Google search the game title, plus "Fantasy Anime" and you'll find it.
      Sailor Mercury - From Useless to OP
      Back when all we had was the original translation, and very limited resources, those of us who were able to play it had absolutely NO idea that Sailor Mercury's ability, Shabon Spray, didn't do direct damage. It is even listed in the fan guide  as simply causing minor damage. It wasn't until playing this game as an adult, and becoming obsessed with the fact that her 2 CP cost attack did so much less than everyone else's, and also seemed to have a strange damage limit to it (the numbers never seeming to go higher than 20), for it to just be straight damage. I tested it out, figured out that the numbers popping up are showing exactly how much you are reducing the enemies attack by , and then promptly ran to the internet to find that someone else had discovered the same thing a few years prior. LOL! But still! That was an exciting moment for me, and to this day I do not think it is very well known.
       
      Because of this ability, and the fact that Sailor Mercury has one of the highest Defense Stats in the game, Sailor Mercury has successfully taken the spot as Most Useful Character in Sailor Moon Another Story. Feel free to disagree below.

      This is VERY exciting news, this is great. 2022 has many great anime coming out and a film adaptation of the manga "Blue Giant" is one of those anime I'm looking forward to. 
      https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2021/10/20-1/shinichi-ishizukas-jazz-themed-manga-blue-giant-gets-anime-film-in-2022
      Now, reading the manga, this is surely a great upcoming film i've been waiting for. I'm excited to see the animation of the musicians, and the audio of the music that is heavily praised in the manga. This is a jazz based manga, about a kid who goes to tokyo to pursue a dream of becoming a great jazz player, and I have high hopes for the animation of his journey and adaptation of the actual manga.

      About the Manga
      "Blue Giant" is heavily dedicated to the craft of jazz, if you love jazz, then you'll love this manga. It's an illustration of a kid named Dai Miyamoto on his journey honing his skill in the tenor sax, soon he moves to tokyo after high school pursuing a life long dream of his.

      So yeah I’ve been watching the original Gundam classic mech anime from the 70’s and have watched 24 of the 43 episodes and love it a lot.
      So um what I’ve seen mech anime wise varies as the mech anime I’ve watched and completed and enjoyed is a wide variety. Ahem here goes Towanoquon Film Series, Casshern Sins, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Code Geass, SSSS.Dynazenon, Valrave the Liberator, Blue Gender, SSSS.Gridman, Eighty-Six first season, Gun x Sword Cowboy mech anime and it’s badass, Gurren Lagann, Full Metal Panic! First two seasons, The Big O a huge number of years ago when it was on Adult Swim, Knights of Sidonia, Bokurano, Scrapped Princess don’t know if this counts, Genocyber. 
       
      So what other older or newer mech anime films, or OVAs, or shows do y’all recommend? 
       
      here’s my Anilist
      https://anilist.co/user/Dazaithebest73/animelist
      I'm also watching Gasaraki, Armored Trooper VOTOMS, Iron Blooded Orphans, Voltes V, and Magic Knight Rayearth this month.

      Is Saya Kisaragi from the anime Blood-C actually just a Filipina aswang from pre-Spanish colonial era Philippines?
      In the anime Blood-C, Saya Kisaragi's origins are shrouded in mystery. She isn't even Japanese. And her real name is just Saya. Her last name Kisaragi is fake. In all honesty, we don't even know if her real name is Saya at all. Her real name would have probably been native female Filipino Tagalog such as Luwalhati, Diwa, etc. Her real last name on the other hand, would have been native Filipino Tagalog such as Atabay, Dimasupil, Una, etc.
      Despite her youthful physical appearance, she is actually much older. A lot of people said that she is an Elder Bairn but there are also ones that say that she is something else. As for her looking like a Japanese teenage human girl, this probably isn't even her real form. Her real form is probably that of tanned skinned Filipino teenage girl with large eyes and not that of a pale-skinned slanted eyed Japanese teenage girl.
      Her real form could have probably been like this long-black-haired tanned-skinned Filipina girl. She probably could have looked like Mayari from the webtoon Mayari. The webtoon Mayari is created by Azilim. Seriously, search up Mayari.
      I am not saying that the webtoon is connected to the Blood-C universe. I am just saying that Saya Kisaragi's real physical appearance could have been like that of Mayari.
      She could have probably used a supernatural power that changed her physical appearance from that of a Filipina teenage girl into that of a Japanese teenage girl. Keep in mind that aswangs have the supernatural power to change from one human form into another different human form. Seriously, those are one of the aswang's supernatural powers.
      Another thing that sets her apart from Elder Bairns is that she is a monster but looks like a human. She's probably not even an Elder Bairn but something else.
      So again, is there a possibility that Saya Kisaragi is actually just a Filipina aswang from Pre-Spanish colonial era Philippines?
      By the way, search up aswangs so you can understand what I am saying.
