Sakura Wars is such a weird thing, because I'm sure you remember as well as I do how ubiquitous it was in the mid-to-late '90s/early 2000s with all the shows/movies, video games, and other assorted merchandise. It was very heavily marketed, possibly on par with Evangelion during that same time period, but looking back now it kind of feels like it disappeared overnight.

Maybe people just grew bored with the setting? It's basically Taishō mixed with steampunk, right? I never liked the mecha designs. Pressure-cooker-ass-lookin' motherfuckers.


I'm sure I've linked to that one several times over the years. For me it will always be the perfect encapsulation of existing as a shitty little '80s kid. :laugh:

No! Merla's second-hand PTSD at Jayce never finding his father! Argh.

Now that you mention it, the mechs or whatever in Sakura Taisen kinda remind me of rice cookers. Since I'm not really a mech person to begin with, that's not a deterrent. Although I can see how it'd have zero appeal to the mech-crowd.

I actually don't recall it being heavily marketed any more than most other properties at the time. I didn't even realize it was a game first until I looked it up.

That said, I recall that I wanted to love this but found it incredibly forgettable. Even back then.

This over and over again, because I have to sing this on stage come May.

Oh my God, I can't get over how fucking good Frieren is. And how does it have any business being that way? Tropey JRPG characters doing tropey JRPG shit, and yet... pure gold. In the most recent episode I watched, she nuked this giant monster and it gave me goosebumps. I don't remember the last time an anime gave me any kind of visceral reaction like that.

I love how people are latching onto the concept ideas for this flick and running with them. This would've been boss if this had been in the actual movie. We wanted villain-couple and hot star guy. It was easy money, you stupid mouse.

I like the idea, but that's just some straight Vivziepop music. Not that I can't tolerate a little Vivziepop, I just can't see that style ever making it into a Disney production.

I think the song could be adapted to sound more Broadway like 90's Disney. What makes something Vivziepop anyway? Is it the fact that it's using an animatic in order to illustrate the song?

Sorry, I'm just talking my shit again. I really don't know much about musicals. This just immediately reminded me of the kind of songs that constantly show up in Helluva Boss and Hazbin Hotel, which are created by Vivienne Medrano aka Vivziepop.

I'm guessing it's actually a much wider cultural phenomenon, and I've simply had a very narrow view of it.

Both openings. The second opening was pretty good, too. Same group: Ambience.

That second one reminds me so much of the Beast Wars Neo opening. Anime really loves to marry high-energy visuals with wistful/melancholy vocals. :laugh:
