He's not wrong, you know. Points at Cowboy Bebop as an example.

In other news, I finally watched (Season? Volume? Book?... one...) Space Dandy.

It was pretty amazing......

Baby.

he's wrong.

Unless we're talking mlp.

The only anime I have ever liked is the Robotech/Macross series'. I LOVE them with a passion, and yes I'm old (saw the original airings on television as a young lad). Max Sterling = Boss!

Here is the latest anime guide for Spring 2015. Enjoy!

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan is adorable.


Triage x sounds wonderful.

I am going to go with assassination classroom and gundam build fighters for my mobile anime.

Need to watch I can't understand what my husband is saying with wife.

Where are you seeing disappearance?

Finished Tokyo Ghoul last night. Rather upset by cliffhanger endings and sloppy writing.

Silver Crusade

Arlsan Senki seems to be off to a grand start. Can't wait for episode two.


Just started assassination classroom. Am enjoying.

Apropos of not a lot, but non-tangentially related to Anime...

And speaking of classrooms, magical girls, and the like...

Monday, we were down half our players for our normal PF game, and so the GM said "Jim, bring your TFOS stuff."

So I did. And we now have a "we're missing players" game that includes a teenaged clone of Brock Sampson, a four-armed space cat who is (figuratively) the Teacher's Pet, and my character - the daughter of an extra-dimensional Good Witch and a Car Salesman, Ruby Schlippert.

I had to do it. I rolled Fly, Zap, and Magical Girl as powers. I regret nothing.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to come up with those Magical Girl "You will be punished for your wrongdoings!" monologues on the fly? Do you? DO YOU?!?

Yes.

In Samurai Flamenco they actually discuss it.

What is TFOS?

It looks rather cute but I hope they do something more with it than what they have shown so far. If there is no tie to the other Haruhi stuff it will be entirely pointless to have the names it has. If this turns out to be a standard 'hope senpai will notice me' story where the characters happen to be named after and look like characters from another story, I'll feel cheated.

Ore Monogatari is the only one I've tried so far that I'm pretty sure I'll be sticking with. The Nisekoi crossover episode had me pretty convinced already.

Teenagers From Outer Space, the first Comedic Anime roleplaying game, and a fantastic bit of fun all around.

Fate Stay Night is back? Cheers!


I've heard of complaints about the animation of Gunslinger Stratos, but I'm not seeing it.

The problems, I mean.


Lets see now

Re-Kan - kind of nice little story about a girl who can see ghosts and her friends at school. It's nice but not really remarkable in the first episode.

My Love Story - Oh man, if you like romance stories this is a winner. Big lovable gorilla of a guy, so used to sitting in the friend zone he can't even recognize when a girl is actually crushing on him. People really should check it out.


Eto-Tama and Punch Line fall into the "what the hell did I just watch" brand of anime

Finally went back and finished KanColle. Nice light fare, if you're not looking for something deeper.

Rewatched Bleach. Pretty decent without the fillers. Fights are awesome.

How do you avoid the fillers? Is there a list of filler episodes somewhere?

I enjoyed season 1, and was psyched for season 2 by the time I got around to watching it. But the way that season 2 starts everything back at square one -- both in terms of characters losing most or all of their butt-kicking power, and in terms of being utterly clueless and powerless against the next big threat (bounts) -- killed my interest after five or so episodes.

Kind of like playing through a very tough 1-10 campaign with a hard-won victory at the climax, and then the DM saying "Does everyone have their old 1st-level CSs? Good! Trash your current ones, and bring the old ones next weekend..."

Looks like there are a couple places that list them.

Episode numbers.
Wiki with season summaries and color codes.
Forum post discussing a viewing plan.


REALLY liking assassination classroom.

Silver Crusade

Episode 2 of Arslan Senki continues on that awesome start made by the previous one. My only issue with the series thus far is the opening, or, more to the point, the opening song. It's not quite what I would have liked and I'm not sure that UVERworld would have been my final choice to do it.

That aside, I can't wait for episode 3, The Knight in Black. Daryun was a legitimate bada$$ in the OVAs, so I want to see if that remains consistent in the TV series.

Yamada and the seven witches is fun

although you have to be ok with a lot of kissing

boys kissing girls
girls kissing boys
girls kissing girls
boys kissing boys

everyone gonna get kissed


Yamada does indeed seem promising.

Finally watched the 1st season of Psycho-Pass. Loved it. Can't wait to start the second season.

I will declare a personal holiday when it does.

Sorta Spoiler:

Spoiler:
I love how the last scene of S1 plays off of the first. A bit trite maybe, but it keeps the show on the gray side of black.

Silver Crusade

It seems that there are only 11 episodes for season 2 of Psycho-Pass. I'm trying to decide if I should wait and see if more are coming or if that's all they're doing for season 2.

Meanwhile, Arslan Senki episode 3 introduced Silvermask, Elam, and Narsus. Still can't wait for Falangies to be introduced (mostly because Maaya Sakamoto will be brought in to voice her, but also because Falangies is a bada$$ as well).


Up to date on assassination classroom. but discovered I am VERY far behind with sailor moon crystal! Am updating...

Yeah... I've fallen behind on Sailor Moon Crystal too. That bi-weekly release schedule of theirs can be a pain.

I really wanted the Gundam Unicorn OVAs on blu-ray but they are ridiculously expensive (episode 7 is listed for over $200 bucks on Amazon). I bought the DVDs instead (a little over $70 for the whole series) and the picture quality is amazing.

Rightstuf is advertising a preorder of Turn-A Gundam. Has anyone seen this and have an opinion on it? My only knowledge of it is from the Mobile Suit Gundam Dynasty game.

turn a is...weird. very weird. It attempts to link all gundam-and I do mean ALL, everything except wing I think- into a single reality or closely linked realities. That and the art and the music....it was very odd.

Saw Berserk 1, and wow! Was not expecting a feature-length experience, and I was not expecting rated R material.

I'm not complaining though, and I hope Netflix gets more episodes soon!

Berserk is one of the best Sword and Sorcery comics out there, it's an amazing story but yeah, it is seriously brutal at times. Escpecially after the Eclipse

I haven't watched the movies, found the CG a little off putting, but there was an old Anime version of it for TV that I saw way back when, which is what got me interested in the comics. Own over 30 volumes now and waiting for the next one. Dark Horse comics is the one releasing it in North America, should be able to find it in any comic store (usually plastic wrapped)

Way too kiddy for my tastes.

Was this before or after the X-Men arc? Did you see the Deadpool episodes?

BLOOD AND BONE!

All three Berserk movies are good... but the third movie is the one to watch. How it handles The Eclipse puts the TV series and the manga to shame.

I honestly think Berserk may be the best manga I have ever read.


I may have to get the manga then.

I love berserk. It's evil characters done right.

Berserk is one of the few Manga i collect in print form. Love that series. Definitely recommend it if you are okay with mature content and themes.

Silver Crusade

Arslan Senki #4 was pretty good. For those who watched the original OVAs, this part of the story is pretty much the same dealing with Arlsan and Daryun meeting up to recruit Narsus into their party. Though the handling of Narsus' art is a little different. In the OVA, you were led to believe that it's awfulness was more a difference of the beholder's eye. In the TV series, Arlsan's reaction upon seeing one of his works leaves little doubt as to what's up and I found it genuinely funny.

Next week's episode is usually where I make the decision to stay or go watch something else. As it stands right now, though, unless something comes out in this upcoming episode to just totally turn me off to continued viewings, I think it's pretty clear that I'll be sticking around.

If I had to be serious about it, I'd have to go with Fate/Zero Rider for bestest.
