What is it about the Given movie that made it an instant classic? Is it the combination of Keanu Reeves and Meryl Streep? Is it the smart dialogue and the great acting? Is it the visual effects? Or is it something else entirely?
I’m not going to lie to you. The music festival scene in Given is one of my favorites from the anime series. It’s a beautiful scene that captures the magic of Japan’s hottest summer season. But beyond that, I think the true reason this movie is so great is the way it’s told. Rather than rely on exposition, the director cuts to a personal relationship that is told subtly enough so that you don’t even realize what’s happening.
One of the things I most like about Eva is that she breaks most of the traditional anime rules. For instance, a lot of anime series limit their story to one or two main characters. Eva is a part of a great family, but she is also a very unique character that does not conform to any traditional Japanese archetypes. She stands out as an individual who displays a wide variety of emotions and quirks. It’s this uniqueness that makes her and the rest of the anime series so great.
There are some differences between Eva and Manyaka, the other main anime from the studio. In Both anime, the art style is very different. While Someaka features detailed illustrations, mostly in black-and-white, Eva utilizes illustrations that are done in full color. This stylistic change helps convey a more mature and realistic plotline. It also adds depth to the characters and allows for more expressive facial expressions.
Another noticeable stylistic difference between Eva and Manyaka is the way they draw the dialogue. In Eva, there are no outlines on the body of the character. Due to the focus being on the movement of the character, the outline is unnecessary. The pencil sketches done for the character of Ritsuka from the anime Bleach are quite good, though, with vibrant colors and sketchy outlines. These are the sorts of things you might expect from an Eva fan anime.
Many fans of Eva also appreciate the realistic portrayal of puberty. In both anime series, young boys experience growth and change during the course of the seasons. However, in the OVA for Eva, Haruka goes through puberty, while in the manga version, Kensuke goes through it. This makes the characters more convincing. They develop and change, and ultimately become strong, powerful individuals.
The pacing of both the OVA and manga is very fast-paced. Both anime are very intense and deal with dark themes. The combination of fast-paced scenes and heavy darkness make both series very emotional. The first season of Eva was critically acclaimed and sold very well. Its success spawned the second season, which I enjoyed even more.
Given the epic nature of both anime, I recommend picking either the Eva or Bleach if you’re a fan of classic anime. The second season of Ritsuka is definitely worth your time. If you haven’t checked it out, I highly suggest doing so. It’s not as serious and pure as the first season but still a great watch if you have a basic understanding of anime.
If you prefer something a little more serious and slightly edgy than anime or manga, I recommend checking out Ritsuka, which is about a teenage girl in Tokyo who becomes a vampire. I highly recommend reading the second manga volume before watching the anime because it’s going to have a lot more action and less bisho. The second volume of Ritsuka has some beautiful art, and I can guarantee you that there will be some blood shed.
Bleach is probably the best anime I’ve read in a long time. I’m a huge fan of the original bleach story, and the later side stories. While the first novel doesn’t have a lot of action, it’s filled with fun, clever, and interesting characters. The second novel is also outstanding, and I highly recommend reading it. I’m sure that Bleach fans will love it, and mafuyu fans will be enthralled with the third novel.
I hope that by now you can see what I’m getting at. I highly recommend checking out the Bleach manga, the anime series, and the live action Ritsuka. If I didn’t like any of these three I would definitely recommend trying out the Bleach movies, or Ritsuka the Ritsuka CG cartoon. Who knows, maybe I’ll even end up loving them all. If you have any questions about what I think of the Bleach movies, anime, or manga, I’d be happy to answer them in the comments section.
