New Watanabe show? Dang.
With the extra popularity Psycho-Pass has, I'm guessing it was getting a prime time rerun to get a larger audience behind it. Which is normal, happens to a lot of shows. Death Note only became huge in Japan months after it originally aired because they reran the show in prime time instead of some late as fuck time slot only otaku watch. They normally already fix animation errors for DVDs and such, but I'm guessing that just cleaning up errors didn't feel like an improvement enough for the people who made it. Otherwise they wouldn't recut the entire thing in 11 episodes. So they're doing a shorter cut of Psycho-Pass with fixed animations instead of a full-blown rerun. Who cares?
Same with Madoka being recut into two movies. Which coincidentally, is by the same writer and has a lot of animation goofs in the original release as well. It's normal, it happens. The guy making these things is a perfectionist.
Oh man going just by the first episode Tokyo ESP is fucking awesome. I hadn't heard much about it but consider giving it a go, trust me the synopsis is misleading. Love the OST already
I've just started watching Psychopass (I'm 2 episodes in). Should I just stop and seek out the remastered version or should I keep going?
Depends if you want to watch it weekly or not.
Also, I think the recut Psycho Pass will be the same length. The first episode is nearly 50 minutes long.
It's because you left 'Retrieve remote file and reference locally' checked.

Just finished watching the first episode of Wanatabe's new show, Terror in Resonance. I'm not exaggerating when I say this might be my favourite thing he's done. Such a great thriller. The slow drip of episodes is going to be excruciating. This is by far the best thing this season.

Yeah, it's been good so far. I watched the recut version and it's not that different from the originals save for slightly better animation. They also replaced the ending of Episode 1 with new footage to better tie things together. I'll just wait for new episodes each week so that I don't feel the need to bingewatch, which will let me catch on other stuff .

It's a cash in, animes sell for way more in Japan so it's not a surprise that they're just touching up the anime, adding in a bunch of garbage deleted scenes and selling it twice. No gracias.
I don't know why it took me so long, but Ping Pong is pretty great so far. Animation in particular has a quality that I rarely see in anime at all, at least before Studio 4C sold out.
If you liked TESP then you should definitely check out GRZ. Starts off with some similar shit but with more giant fire lizzards, ghost zombies, and motorcycle kung-fu.
Finished Ping Pong The Mangamation. Fantastic show, great story and character development. All done in 11 episodes which is amazing. That ending was perfect.
The OP of Aldnoah Zero sounds so much like Madoka's ED. Episode 2 was much better than the first. This is going to be really good.
Saw the first episode of Terror in Resonance. Was pretty damn good, and for my money, felt a lot more like a Watanabe show than Dandy ever strived for.
Terror in Resonance feels like it's going to be a lot better than Dandy. Dandy is so hit and miss--sadly mostly the latter for me.
