[科幻動畫]7-seed二季(1-12完)看後感(上)

最近幾個月工作實在太辛苦(主要是車程和飯程問題),終於因為工作又疏落下來有時間精力可以補番。

因為這套開宗名義是Netflix片,所以不寄厚望——主流觀眾喜歡的是「劇力」,所以要求故事太認真是很難達到的。

這一季的重頭戲是一班精英心態很重遇上一班「得過且過」的組合為生存而擦出的火花。解謎方面只有小學生程度,完全無法令我心跳加速——這種時候超級想念城平京。

劇力是很夠,夠我兩天就吃完了這四小時的「長電影」。

作者很完美的示範了人類社會是怎麼生存下來的——得過且過的傢伙很能活在當下,相反制度下的精英雖然個人能力很強,但反而有可能因為是那種很容易被洗腦的類型,所以才會很乖很理智地「努力玩遊戲」務求「測試過關」,而且對於自己心裡面想要什麼總是有各種程度的扭曲理解;相反某些看來很任性、自由放任的傢伙,反而對精神控制很有抗性,因為他們能面對自己的心情,內省能力很高。

而那個「想辦法處理掉失敗者」的精英個性的刻劃雖然反映事實,但寫出來很突兀,真的看得我啼笑皆非。

很會找樂子的人其實不很能適應高度發展的社會,因為他們就算回到原始文明他們都不會日子過得很悲情,所以缺乏強大動機去「順應」發達社會對成員複雜煩瑣的要求,很容易會變成「失敗者」,但他們面對災難時意外地能成功活下去。所以我對於中國熱衷玩基因防罪並不很支持,因為參考巴西那些基因相對單一的部落被COVID-19全滅、同病之下美國有色人種多幾倍的死亡率(剛出了報告說三成美國黑人為「同宗」,解釋了問題所在)——老老實實上天的幽默就是太努力搞國安,有天變成「國滅」不出奇。上天給的試卷就是社會上就是要有各種各樣的人,良好的管治方式就是令大家都有自己的崗位互不侵犯並可以各自過得不錯,可你就是堅持要出貓……那就要小心被上天DQ,成為歷史上的反教材。

科學家已經在自閉症、情緒障礙等研究證實思考傾向和免疫能力有強大的因果及基因同源關係,意味人類個體間能力差異大係免疫反應多元化的表現,能免於新型疫症發生時全軍覆沒。反過來說,從基因上追求認知傾向的統一,基本上就是等同集體自殺。像香港這種「奇人」特多、人們祖先來自五湖四海的地方,生命力注定特別驚人。所以,港女「食洋腸」的行為其實很符合科學理性以及有利真正的「國安」。

[OVA]Pale Cocoon

It has been quite some years since I watched a stand-alone OVA of the length of a normal anime episode.

People had moved to the Moon and the memory of the old life on Earth has become something people no longer want to know about, something no more than records on some old newspaper cuttings lying in a drawer.

When the protagonist watched the decoded MV about the trip people were forced to take due to the deteriorating Earth environment, he finally got the motivation to leave the underground facilities and saw, for the first time in many centuries may be, a blue Earth...

To many artists, human beings are like cancer cells of Earth. We multiply at an enormous speed, taking up spaces and other natural resources from other species, squeezing out all the normal ecosystems and build our own, with a consumption rate so alarming that our history has been full of bloody wars.

This view can be presented from the negative angle such as this one: when people are managed such that we are self-contained, people lack the energy to live on. Even if there is only one male and one female in the vicinity, where people are obliged to form a relationship for survival of the species, spark just doesn't really occur.

This short work is a very powerful and emotional reflection on who we are. Human beings are energized by luxury and abundance because we are highly intelligent.

The Earth is just a cradle which we are destined to climb out from. We are not entitled to ruin the cradle for the sake of other animals that share the same planet as us. We should make our leave before we soil the whole planet, and we should master the technology to fully provide for ourselves (not just barely surviving) in the deep space before time runs out.

It is a short story without any real action or romantic spark but it has a powerful aftertaste of which most audience would be able to feel.

[動畫]炎炎消防隊二季1-3小評

David production真的很能發揮大久保老師的那種分鏡和人設的獨特「視覺表情」。看完真的有那種全身像是被火鳳凰的火焰更新了一次的威力。

第五個純粹之炎覺醒的新角色女生的心路歷程真的描畫得很好。然後Arthur實力大爆發的前因後果真的簡潔而非常有力——大久保的心理描畫越來越精詣。再來就是主角的殺意被好好地發洩出來真的很舒暢。壓抑了那麼多集我都快忍不住了。有Arthur陪打真是太幸福了。

這套實在畫得太好了,好到我不想看漫畫被劇透,還是第一次呢。

[Netflix movie]Ni no Kuni (Second Kingdom)

I really didn't expect my childhood dream composer Joe Hisashi would be doing film music nowadays, and Ghibli doing the character design and recycling their design of Howl and Ashitaka (mixed together) certainly managed to ring something really weird in me.

Joe's "music vocabulary" is very easy to recognize especially when it comes to fantasy anime like this one. Ghibli's character design must be used with particular script and personality settings and this story definitely doesn't maximize the "magic" that has always been brought by the time-tried duo. I do sympathize that Netflix productions are usually very compact in its time schedule so many things just don't really match up.

I didn't play the game so the setting was a bit of surprise to me. For me, Haru and Yu don't look like the "same" soul to me at all. I have read many stories with similar settings such as Clamp's Tsubasa Chronicles and I really feel that the special chemistry of "two innately similar characters from two different worlds isn't well played in this presentation of the script.

The plot is actually very good in terms of creative concept. I really like the ideas such as similar people from different worlds crossing the boundary to help each other out, while lives of linked souls share their fate despite never meeting each other face to face.

[anime review]Ascendence of Bookworm (2nd season) 1-12(End)

Too bad that this seems to be the end of the series. Many fans from all over the world are lamenting at the fact that there is no more anime to this story.

MSJ, the production unit, is famously linked to the Black Jack series in my memory. I am not too satisfied by its retro-styled animation techniques but Black Jack is well known for its dramatic and sensational plots so animation faults can be overlooked.

I have always been cautious writing stories with magic/ESP because I have found it very hard to explain the power balance in the story. This series has lost its hold at the point where Maine turned a hectre of bare land into grassland in a few seconds with the help of a magical tool, without magic training, learning just the incantation (which works for everyone) is all that was needed.

Do you see what I mean?

Also, an adult who loves reading books and suddenly commented "the nobles were acting up and it was damn scary" before breaking into tears and flung herself into her friend's arms?

I am not quite sure why it would be so. There are plenty of scary things in the library books and I think what happened was just "expected". It might be that Maine has loved this magical world so dearly (finally she can hope to climb up the social ladder and be in power!) that she didn't want to leave it so early.

I guess I am the type of "adventurous" girl rather than a bookworm at the core, so that I love gathering knowledge and wisdom (and so I read furiously despite I was dyslexic) such that I can live through another adventure and have more!

書蟲向上流二季(Lutz的出路)看後感

這個系列極度斯文地批評了窮人仔女就算有心有力有才能,向上流是多麼的困難。

Lutz為了發展事業離家出走這一段《愛.回家》式的鬧劇不少西方觀眾看到一頭冒水,而我幾乎看到睡倒,證明亞洲人其實真的很窮。窮父母沒有資源支持有才能的孩子發展,社會也不會有正式的渠道幫孩子「飛上樹」,所以也不習慣明言自己的支持,不然「得個講字」會很尷尬,不亞於問人「你是不是性無能(不能生孩子)」(這兩幕對比做得超好)。窮人父母見慣窮人為求生存不擇手段,也難以相信會有非親生的人對自己孩子好,如果沒有第三者監察,更加難放手給孩子「遠走高飛」,結果「家庭關係」變成孩子的牢籠,反而成為計時炸彈。而西方社會很多人已經忘記了如果沒有運作良好的自由文化、民主和福利制度,大部分的孩子們的命運會有多無聊、國家的人才和經濟會有多大的發展障礙。

上幾集Maine看了孤兒院的狀況於心不忍,為了可以專心看書結果擔起了孤兒院院長一職,雖然能容許這樣的事發生真在很奇幻,但這發展充滿了「北歐精神」(例如荷蘭就有個小兒風車,小朋友努力改變社會的成功例子實體)——這故事雖然框架老套,但意外地意識先進,怪不得成功被動畫化。

我相信原作很能把這個關鍵問題描寫的很深刻,不過以我所知西方觀眾對動畫版好像不大能明白這段劇情的原意……回到「中世紀」,文明向左走向右走的關鍵點,就是對「人類發展的可能性」的「信仰」。不是任何一種宗教本身的教義或者儀式,而是「人」本身對「人」自身所擁有的信仰。

西方國家從中世紀的社會結構走出來最少有幾百年歷史,而亞洲好像走來走去都走不出來這種貧民難翻身的社會面貌(英殖香港曾經成功過,不過回歸中國廿年又走回頭路了;日韓就更悲劇,經濟發展反而強化了封建論)。

這一集明確說明了女主角Maine開始要身邊的人去隱藏自己的去向和出身,證明貧富的芥蒂非常深,社會對「向上流」的個案的忌諱如同性交那樣不能隨便現人眼前。這是非常非常可悲的。<-天生的丹麥魂,無論如何都不覺得這樣的情況很「自然」以及可以接受

基本上第二季這一段的故事說明了世上兩大方向文明的分歧點。大家小時候都曾經尿床不是重點,重點是後來誰學會了搞衛生,誰花了廿年終於把第一種抗生素量產出來,而誰又覺得上廁所很麻煩為什麼不能隨街方便。

p.s. 離題:再說一下「分歧點」的結構。
放手給幾個有天分的小孩去做(1),大家在背後指導然後做出成績來(2),於是大家都相信了原來人只要肯努力,三十歲「一定得」(3),所以覺得自由民主福利是不二選擇(4)。不僅是前面(1)和(2)有沒有發生過(以及有多少頻率),而是會不會因為(1)和(2)而覺得(3),不然就沒有了(4)的決定。<-真正的興趣之一是心理歷史學

[anime review] Listeners 1-3

MAPPA is my new BONES.

This time, they have decided to venture into the philosophical relationship of artists and the audience with magnificent artwork to tell the story.

I particularly like the style of this original work. The color plan is gentle and the character designs are natural-looking.

The resulting quality is exhilarating and I am looking forward to a masterpiece.

It takes quite some courage to admit that the devouring dark acts often come from "would-be players". People often cannot control themselves when they want something but cannot get it. Art is a tool which takes much work to complete and is not as useful as it should be if the author just tries to express oneself.

It is exactly when hearts are joined that the true power is drawn but power is always dangerous and it could be so disastrous that it get itself banned after a big slip.

Just as where Echo lived and worked, this work picks up bits and pieces from many famous work on the same topic and recombines it into a retro-feeling story.

I have great expectation of this anime.

[anime]Plunderer 11-15 review

I have to confess that the story moved too slowly last season so I jumped around before the school arc (11 onwards), which starts to churn out memorable plots and got me sufficiently interested in the story.

[動畫]白貓(原點篇)1-2

終於等到這套動畫化了。當年一看設定,我就對故事很有期待。可惜沒時間玩。

第一集果然就出了名場面。

魔王繼承者(即係王子)的心智條件是什麼?在一個殘酷的世界裡為王的條件是什麼?

兩個問題的答案都是同一個:可以超越血統和不幸遭遇的志氣、超越障礙的反射式意志。實力只是成功的手段和工具,而不是條件。

這很老套?換個新的表達方法吧:

「看到願景的人,有義務把它實現到底。」

這句怎麼看都是一塌糊塗的歪理,對於「符合條件」的人來說卻是無能反駁真理。我聽到這句笑容超大,死忍住不要大力拍手以免打擾別人(住香港有時真的是超抑鬱的)。就像看到精彩絕倫的論文或者數學證明那樣。

這就是人的心理的奇特之處,某政權卻總以為所有「宗教」其實都只有兩招,那就是洗腦加上社交控制,然後以為耍好這兩招就可以當自己是桐人那樣「屈機」……殊不知即時邪教化。

不,每個「當紅」的宗教(不是說邪教),都有那麼幾項的效果邏輯雷同的信念,「符合條件」的人只要接觸,就會「一拍即合」,不需要洗腦,亦不需要社交控制。所以調轉頭每個人的某些信念,可以用推理得知,毋需過問。

這名句之前整段的角色描寫的強度超一流(我就不劇透了),我看完整個名場面之後口是微張的,這個實在經典啊。

不知道之後是不是還能維持這樣的劇本水平呢?

[動畫]虛構推理7-12評論

城平京和後籐圭二的組合對我來說根本就是能把任何正經八百一如數學解題的劇本變成AV程度的刺激性。

從Kiddy Grade年代(那時是還會從電視上看動畫的年紀)就知道後籐圭二非常能貼中本人的「動畫」喜好——用平面設計(如分鏡)去到角色舉手投足如何發揮人設魅力、角色關係的味道如何透過身體語言的交流去顯現出來等等那種Ghibli一直在追求的「演出」的高度。

舉個三分鐘可以看完的例:ED親手操刀,男女主角三點不露,動作和服飾都只是很標準的社交舞規格,沒有華麗的CG效果,僅透過分鏡、剪輯和角色表情和舞姿配合音樂,令成品充滿不令人覺得粗俗但AV度滿點的色氣……

然後城平京根本就是好好的在那裡像考試寫數學算式步驟那樣超長氣地推理,又或者讓角色耍白癡,但就是能夠令推理系劇本表現出像AV片那種性器官直接描寫的裸露感的惡趣味作者——結果看這套看到後半段,我決定要有精力的時候才看,不然我有點怕會馬上風——實在感官刺激性太大了。

Author:溫的若
人類有很多不同的屬性,有一兩種偏離正常(就當是十分之一吧)是很平常的。假設人有5種互相沒有關係的屬性,五個數值都是「正常」的機會只有一半左右。
但是如果五個數值之中,同時有三種是「不正常」的,那麼100人之中,就只有不到一人,堪稱「異界人」了。
