Cross Ange Still Quite Gruesome




Yuri-guro anime Cross Ange has provided more unsightly gore and drama with its 3rd episode, ensuring nothing but complete and utter torment for the series’ much tortured heroine – and with little hope that things will start to look up anytime soon.

    I have a hard time taking this show seriously. It's like they are trying to be grimdark for the sake of it.

    What's edgy about it? It's not like it's actually shocking.

    i feel sad that anime is becoming more and more violent, more like smut-films with gore and torture :(

    Are you fucking serious? There have been guro films since aw far back as i can remember witch were the early nineties. Humanity today is actually a lot less violent than any time in history. Do not let the violent media of today cloud your views.

    2003-2006 old days? Anime has been around for 100 years. And there has been plenty of violent anime during and before the 2003-2006 period. Wicked City and Ninja Scroll from the late 80s/early 90s come to mind.

    "The difference is that Anime characters look too damn cute these days. Nobody wants to see cute moe and gore at the same time."

    I'm sure there are people who enjoy that sort of thing. Loli girls, that 12 year old was that age, and death turn them on.

    You obviously haven't seen shit like Violence Jack, and for the record, it's from the 90's or something. The only difference is, anime was very niche back the west at least.

    I don't really get that vibe, edginess has little to do with the content and everything to do with presentation. Even something as simple as pouring a bowl of cereal could be made edgy as fuck and mass murder could be made happy and serene. To me Cross Ange seems fairly indifferent and either abandons most of the hallmark edgemaker scenes after a few frames instead of really driving them home or purposely makes them as detached as possible so they carry little to no emotional impact, in a good way. It is a pity about the captain though, she seemed like the perfect character to generate a lot of yuri action.

    Could you illustrate me on the Edgy Ball of Cereal Theorem? (for the "serene mass murder", I have some ideas, but the former... a cereal killer, maybe?)

    I mean this is MD Geist violent, not EoE violent. Although it's obvious they pay homage to Asuka's fate at the hands of the MP Evas. Anime used to be bloody since the 70's, heck even Zeta was violent and that was a kiddy show.

    But notice how in good shows and films, they don't go overboard with the blood spilling, and even when they do show gore, it's done in a subtle, implied way, so as to have more emotional impact. It's what's not seen that arouses horror, not what is seen.

    One more thing I hate how blood itself is depicted in anime nowadays. It looks like dull, matte dyed water was splattered and sprayed all over the place. Correct me if I'm medically wrong, but blood should look darker, distinctly strong in color a little more viscous and flow freely instead of just splay all over. A great example of proper blood-work done right in anime can be seen in the Rurouni Kenshin OVAs.

    You're not medically wrong. But then the eyes of these girls are too big too. They're also too strong for their physiques. And there is no way that any military would rely on 12 year old girls to save the world.

    Yeah but that's no different than how unrealistic semen looks in hentai anime. If they were to do it realistically it'd take too much effort, and wouldn't be as sensational.

    Arzenals are operated sorta like motorcycles. When they show them right before take off clearing system checks, they have throttle, "crutch", and brakes. I know know it's supposed to be clutch but that engrish is f'n funny. I guess it should be thlottre, crutch, blakes and crear. lol

    I think those are called Para-Mails. Arzenal is the name of the organization/prison.

    To be honest, I am puzzled whether the author of the original article's text has actually watched the episode.
    "ensuring nothing but complete and utter torment for the series’ much tortured heroine – and with little hope that things will start to look up anytime soon."
    Actually, Ange undergoes a remarkable development in this episode, quicker than I would have thought plausible.
    From the tragic survivor branded as killer of her three comrades at the beginning, when she aggravates the other fighters further by interjecting "I'm not guilty killing them but anyway they were just norma" to the new abilities apparently caused by her blood-stained ring to do some mana-light materie-manipulating thing and transforming her battered scrap mecha intop a shiny powerful one, and actually taking down the dragon beast that had killed the three and left her wounded previously.
    She seems to have gained fighting ability and confidence, and maybe that killing instinct that was a reason for norma having to be quarantined, so it remains to be seen how she is received by her comrades after the last successful battle.

    Being able to just merrily knock the pilot out of her hoverbike/mech thing seems like one hell of a design flaw

    Name one sci-if/fantasy show where a hover bike features an enclosed cockpit.

    and im not referring to the Jets that transform, those are two different designs. These "things" weren't designed to be jets. The seating resembles that of a motorcycle and the pilots seating position as well.
