Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion 反逆之魯魯修

30th Nov 2008 - 08:19pm 動漫
《反逆之魯魯修》絕對是一部話題之作﹐從零七年的第一季開始﹐己經吸引我每個星期忠實地追看。每星期急不及侍下載最新一話﹐看完後馬登入網上討論劇情﹐追看官方公告或路邊小道消息。這部動畫的成功完全出乎意料之外﹐第一季原本在深夜播送。儘管這部是可以賣玩具的機械人動畫﹐但連把動畫當玩具廣告的笨大也懶得推出週邊產品。也許很多觀眾和我一樣﹐對第二季後段劇情嚴重跳線感到失望﹐但無可否認這部動畫打破日本動畫界過分依懶賣座公式的悶局﹐開創一個新鮮少見動畫的類別。…

Kyouran Kazoku Nikki 狂亂家族日記

20th Nov 2008 - 08:55pm 動漫
有些動畫是不可以一口氣看完全套﹐每個星期看一集還可以﹐但連續看的話可會感到煩厭。《狂亂家族日記》給觀眾留下的最大印象﹐是女主角凶華大人機關槍式的急口令對白﹐不知道日本人聽到了多少﹐不過我連看字幕的時間也不夠。第二個印象應該是畫工的質素﹐劇中人物的面相常常走樣﹐但每次走樣也有固定模式﹐不知道真的是作畫爛還是算有風格。這套動畫是處境喜劇式的動畫﹐內容全都是環繞著那一群主要角色﹐沒有明確的故事主線﹐每集或每幾集成為一個獨立故事。第一季二十六集動畫﹐除了頭幾集介紹人物出場外﹐其餘的集數打亂來看﹐甚至跳過不看也沒有關係。最後甚至連沒有結局﹐不過是以一個篇幅長點的單元作總結。…

How to breed Kappas 河童飼養手冊

16th Nov 2008 - 03:54pm 動漫
河童是日本傳說中的妖怪﹐有點像中國的水鬼﹐躲在河中等時運低的人經過﹐然後吃掉他的靈魂﹐相傳被吃掉靈魂會浸死。《河童飼養手冊》是一齣很另類的小品動畫﹐動畫中假設河童成為給人飼養的寵物﹐就像我們從寵物店買貓狗一樣。原作改篇自石川優吾的短篇漫畫﹐每集只有短短的三數分鐘﹐總共有二十六集﹐後來更推出同名的遊戲。…
