Hot off the presses. Still lots of unanswered questions as to the nature of this series. Looks like it's going to be an OVA series? And more CGI'd mecha (bleh)?
I haven't said much about this project on OR but I figure the day before it's finally complete is a good a time as any to post some work-in-progess shots. Painting wise, everything is complete. Decals are on (surprisingly without major incident) and the top coat is on. I'm just making a few small detail tweaks where and there as I assemble the kit for the last time.
Take a look at some of the pieces as they're starting to come together...
Over a year ago I set about putting my Gunpla models into a display case of their own. The intent was to not only display them properly but help protect them from the ever present threat of dust. This was the result. It was initially evident that I didn't have enough room for everything but lacking floorspace there wasn't much I could do about it. Since then I've been lucky enough to upscale my living conditions, and from that, my Gunpla display situation.
We're 12 episodes into the latest series from Studio Trigger and ex-Gainax icon Hiroyuki Imaishi, Kill la Kill. While this ride started off wild and exciting it has slowly wondered into a by-the-numbers snooze fest. You know it's bad when the latest Valvrave episode is more anticipated. Kill la Kill has quite a lot going for it though, and with a bit of fine tuning, it could still develop into something great. While it may not surpass Imaishi's directorial debut, Gurren Lagann, it can at least save itself a mere flicker in the annals of anime history. To get there, though, a few things need to be cleaned up which are holding the series back.
