LaMB: Impressions

Is this a Rei reference?

I never really looked forward to watching LaMB on Animax, since Animax-Asia is good at advertising and fails at the output.

It reminded me of Animax hyped up advertising of Pupil’s so called animated Music video that turned out to be just a bunch of pictures swaying on the screen, with no fixed story whatsoever, and just the band members living out their so called fantasy, in short jerking off in 2D.

WHOA, GiTS reference?

WHOA, is that some animu's reference? GiTS?

Now moving on to LaMB. First things first, the animation is like a Flash animation with just a bit of 3D scenes in it. Their movement sucks, not fluid and the characters make too many steps in a set of walking frames.

Second, the voice acting, not that horrible but, I can’t feel anything from the actors voices and their voices miss a lot of the characters lip movements. That’s why I think producers shouldn’t pick celebrities for voice acting. (ugh, Animax-Philippines’ Initial D 4th Stage)

whoa, boobies

Third, I really don’t like the transitions in the show. I have no problems with fast story pacing and fast transitions, but LaMB’s transitions is seriously weird. At one point there’s drama, then poof, dream sequence. Then, as the Doctor is building up some romance, now there’s action. WTF?

I must say it’s not bad for a first production, it even looks like it has more budget than the typical anime episode. But, its not that good either. I pretty much lost interest since the officer made a lame attempt of cracking a joke, or is it even a joke?

Oh well, there’s still a second part anyway. and Simple Plan’s cameo apperance is lame.

And some stuff from Animax:

yeah, right. Ive heard it alot of times already

only local squa-squas are looking forward to it

They’re actually talking about Tears to Tiara and Fullmetal Achemist’s remake simulcast at April 6, 1245am. Fullmetal Alchemist fills their bill of ’09’s most anticipated since alot of squa-squas and non-squa-squas alike are raging alot about it in the internets.

    I don’t have Animax on my cable either. I was actually looking forward to watching it because it was the special award winner in the Animax’s Pan-Asia Manga-Making contest and it was made by a Filipino. Of course, it took forever to make and Animax has been advertising it for 2 years straight with little care for anything else… and the outcome is just that? How disappointing.
