Okay. Voltaire didn't say that, that line was internal dialogue written a century later that became misattributed to him. Also it wasn't in direct response to the person "he" disagreed with, but was a broader statement on a specific instance of censorship, making it a pretty off-topic quote for this anime character feeling like their dream was rejected.

Nisioisin series
Oh s***, pleasant surprise. I instantly feel much less snarky.

Okay, moving on from the first few minutes, this was pretty good, will def keep watching, but while I haven't put my finger on it yet there's something missing or otherwise not clicking yet compared to the other Nisio shows (including Chuuni Wars). Hopefully and it's not something intractable like new-Shaft not quite mimicking old-Shaft and whatever it is will work now that the main intro ep is done.

For some reason I find it really distracting that everyone has matching hair and eye color.

Well that was absolutely delightful. And luckily the shaftisms weren't as bad as feared they would be. They actually add to the atmosphere of the story instead of taking away from it.

Will 100% be on my watch list.

Yeah, this is Nisio and this is Shaft and I loved it. New shaft hasn't measured up to old Shaft but the aesthetics, the theme songs, and the flow of it made the whole thing pass by like a dream in the span of a few minutes. Judging by the opening sequence she'll probably be joining the club.

This was all character introductions so it's hard to say how a typical episode will flow but I do hope it's as Wheels and the Legman-esque as they make it sound. Obviously I'm going to love the concept of artiste pretty boys doing their thing for the artistry of it to the complaints of beans who can't fundamentally understand their motives or thought processes but new Shaft has a good balance of shaft-isms to content so far.

I liked this more than I expected, though with the busy saturdays I don't know how long I'll keep watching.

Wonder if the star will turn out to be a firework, a satellite or a supernova or something.
