The Anime I am currently watching and loving is...
« on: January 06, 2010, 05:10:27 pm »
I'd like to keep this simple, and user friendly. Just tell us what you are watching that you really like. You don't have to give a doctoral dissertation, just try to give us some of the reasons why you love your show so much, and try to get us to love it too. Or just give it so many of something out of how many whatevers.

Here are some examples, I hope.
Kimi ni Todoke. Watch it because it's as good as His and Her Circumstances. Watch it if you love Production I.G. works. It's slice of life high school style. I'm liking that it makes me smile, if not guffaw. I like when anime makes me feel good enough to smile. You'll wonder if the movie the Ring, was a comedy.

Tales of the Abyss. I guess this one is more of a hidden gem anime. It doesn't seem to be generating the talk, but it's worth watching. I had to watch 3 or 4 episodes at a time. Darn cliffhanger seques!

And I've been watching these 5 minute anime, that are to me just some kind of art film projects. They can be just way too strange. But I did like Kotatsu Neko anyway. That cat is subtle. lol Having watched Health with Little Red Riding Hood, must be like watching Patrick run around in his robe, or something like that.

After I get more of an opinion on some others I have started, I'll let you know.

Please, tell me what you think is worth watching. And no it doesn't have to be brand new.
Have Fun

Speed Grapher. I rented the first volume with my friend while house sitting and now I'm really mad that I put off watching it for so long (I'm kinda dying from not watching it.) Umineko has been blowing my mind lately too. =]

Cobra the Animation: Just came out in Japan, and it is off the hook.
That's it for anything new from the winter season. Soon I'll start on shows I need to catch up/ start on.

Oh lord, some else has seen Health with Little Red Riding Hood? Probably my favorite retarded video of all time.

Umineko no Naku Koro Ni if you liked Higurashi at all you'll be sure to like that. I love how rediculous it can be at times and Beatrice is my favorite character ever.
 I also really enjoyed Trapeze. It's weird as hell but the little things they do in the show that seem to make no sense actually are well placed and connect with other things. Yeah, it's cool.ng.
Higepiyo. It's about a chick with a mustache. That's all I should have to say to interest you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-x57MUD3Yk

I haven't watched really anything but Kimi ni Todoke from time to time but you know what should be subbed in a few days? FREAKING DURARA! HOLY CRAP I'M SO PUMPED!

Denpa Teki na Kanojo is an OVA duo. I won't say two-parter, as only the characters are the same. I like it. I think my wife would like it too. I just won't place any bets on that. lol Anyway, it's detective fiction, and that is about all the spoilage I'm going to give on it. Um, and that it is for adults, not Conan fans. No one goes all chibi ever here.

 Ladies versus Butlers! 1        
 Hatsukoi Limited Special         
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 1
Dance in the Vampire Bund

The above are ones I am planning to watch at least the first episodes to see if I really wanna go there. I dunno. Anyone seen these yet?

Ladies vs. Butlers was so terrible. It's really predictable, then again I'm just tired of the generic fan service harem anime.

I got all those, but have been trying to sort through Macross 7. I dunno, but I can't stop now! Nooooooooooo! lol Only 20 some episodes and one movie to go!. Or was there more. Man, that was one big file. The only thing I have to really complain about is the number of songs, too few. I suppose this would not seem as maddening as it does to me now, if I had watched the series at the rate of one episode per week, instead of however many i can cram into the time I have available.

I did watch Dance in the Vampire Bund. It seems somewhat interesting, but at only one episode viewed, I can't give a definitive opinion as to how I feel about this show. But, if you liked Speed Grapher, you may like this. And if you don't you can write about how wrong I was. lol Sorry it's been a while since I saw Speed Grapher.

Anyway, I'll probably continue with this series, until I feel as if I am forcing myself to watch it, or it ends, whichever comes first.
Have Fun

Durarara!! is amazing.

Go watch it everyone. It's got gangs and headless motorcycle cat women.
Oh, and Hanamaru Kindergarten is terrible. It's like Kodomo no Jikan, which is also terrible, in most everything except that doesn't have gratuitous amounts of pedophile fanservice.

Gloriously funny, bits of fanservice, good plotline, likeable characters...
It's pretty good.

Simoun, a sometimes funny, sometimes heart-breaking yuri series. I love the concept it introduces of being able to choose your gender, and how the plot isn't completely about the romance in the story. It's also pretty cool if you like a dash of mecha in your romance/drama.

Hmm, yeah, they could have done with giving male characters male voice actors, but it's pretty interesting to watch an anime with an all-female voice cast. I happen to like yuri, so I can't agree with you there, but I'm sure you have your reasons for disliking it. You don't have to share them if you don't want to. = 3

I sort of remember Simoun. But I guess it didn't do enough for me. Maybe it was the way they organized their military, that left me cold. Poorly run military organizations that somehow seem to win anyway, or devastatingly wipe out the opposition every time, just ruins my willing suspension of disbelief. Other than that I really wanted to know how it ended.

But I liked Vandread a whole lot better! I guess that maybe you would call it yaoi/yuri. As both genders are at war with the other! But I guess it would be a shounen adventure. It has a little boing, but really doesn't seem to me to be totally oriented to fanservice. Well I bought the series anyway. Have watched it a time or two afterwards. Not enough to memorize but...

I saw the Macross 7 OSTs. I sort of lef tit running as I cooked my breakfast one day. I didn't seem to miss much though. Maybe the one with Mylene's spoileralert maybe I'll get back to that one. Later.

Would it be called foiled yuri say from A Certain Scientific Railgun?

Just finished watching Baccano! Loved this series a lot! There were so many characters to love in it, both good & bad. Was hard to pick a favorite for me honestly...they were all so awsome...but if I were to pick, its between Firo, Ladd Russo, & Claire Stanfield/Vino/Rail Tracer. Story was awsome too...loved how they did the opening & ending to it...leave it to your imagination! I want some Grand Panacea!!

I FINALLY made it almost to the end of Tsubasa, I have about 8 eps left, then the movie and I think there's ovas? I kept starting then stopping cause I thought they would be in that first world forever. Love the music, very much like .hack's.

Ontop of that I'm watching Loveless, Shugo Chara (which is weird but an AMV made me wanna watch all of it), Higarashi no Eden, and I got Kaleido Star next on my netflix list.

I'm debating on FMA Brotherhood.... :/ I LOVE the anime series, so a remake of it seems... pointless to me, and yes I know it's closer to the manga but I never read the manga, and I love the original anime series. But my friend pointed out that alot of people will be talking about it a K-con, and I don't wanna feel left out.

OMG! You are the first person I have heard ever even mention that series! From what I have seen of the first season, I love it! My G/F & I have looked for it to buy several times with no luck. I might have to search online for it & hope I get lucky...

I've heard good things about that one.


Should we make another thread for anime you are watching, but not exactly loving, but just haven't thrown it away yet? I'd put Dears in that category. I think I like watching anime that would be called bildungsroman were we in literature class. Stories that mainly center about growth. So even if they are not good anime, I still watch them.

Tatakau Shisho-Book of Bantorra is a new one and came out in Japan like in September. It is pretty great and describes magic very well. It is based with the legend of the 3 gods from ZELDA OCARINA OF TIME except for one God. Magical books. It is great.

OKay, I saw the second episode today before going to work. Either I am viewing from a different sub group, probably. BUt the animation seems to be very goo and highly detailed. As in the key animations are pieces of art, instead of simple backgrounds.

I've only seen one Durarara! so far. Looks good also.

I wish I could recommend Something no Qwaser. BUt... you either get too much ecchi, or it is censored and you have shots of the sunset when you should be seeing something else, which makes it like watching the radio. But then I can't say that it strikes me as terribly original either.

I've now watched 3 of the Durarara episodes, and I think it's good, but not a masterpiece. I think some of my lack of love for the series is due to FLCL and Paranoia Agent being much better to me, while being somewhat in a similar genre.

Don't get me wrong, I am going to watch all of the episodes. I like it well enough. I just don't see myself doing more than renting this series at a later date.

So far the only ones I am close to thinking of buying from this season's selections would be A Certain Scientific Railgun,  and Kimi ni Todoke. And who knows I may be crazy enough to buy Oomamori Himari, or at least rent it from my Netflix queue.

I'm watching Evangelion. I have seen the beginning and I saw "End of Evangelion" but I haven't seen it all so I started watching it....and I must say, it starts off like any other mech anime and then develops this psychological plot in the middle/end. I haven't gotten to that point just yet but I know "End of Evangelion" is really messed up and a little hard to follow (could be because I haven't seen the rest of the series) but the first 11 episodes (where I am at now) are easy to follow and are a lot like any other anime. Like there is some psychological issues but it doesn't really address them (in this case it just doesn't address them YET). For example, the relationship between Shinji and his dad. I have seen similar relationships in anime but they just kinda want you to deal with it and not think of it any further than that.

I can see that the pot is about to be stirred though. I can see the issues developing, but I think if someone was watching this series and didn't know anything about it they would be quite shocked at the way things turn out x.x

I think next on my list is to rewatch Outlaw Star. I have it all on DVD and when I did see it, it was on Cartoon Network so a lot was cut out, including a whole episode. I also want to finish Gurren Lagann sometime and I probably need to download Brotherhood before I am done with college and lose my file sharing program, though I am sure I can find it....I actually know the site to torrent it >_>

So there is a lot on my plate XD

I just recently saw the uncut version of Outlaw Star after not seeing the series since back when it was on Cartoon Network, and I absolutely loved it. The whole added episode was awesome, and the show is overall more enjoyable unedited. =]

I had to go through a couple of series that more or less were just killing me to watch. It wasn't that they were bad, just so full og angst, I could hardly breathe. phew, all better now. One of those was Rumbling Hearts. Then I watched Triangle Blu, and found it to be a more "adult" version of the former. lol

What I just watched and finished that I am loving now was Sol Bianca. Movie quality animation in an OVA series of 6 episodes. Guess they didn't feel as if they could put out a 3 hour movie, so chop it up and call it a series. It was refreshing after so much angst and cosplay fodder, (Ragnarok).

Kobatooooo :>

I wish there were more anime like this D:

I just finished watching episode 20 of Kobato.  They are having fun again.  The crew from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles literally dropped in.  ;D  They just love having the characters from other CLAMP works make guest appearances on this show.

I just saw a new one called Censoroll. It's a bit strange, sci-fi, but it looks good. I'm looking forward to seeing more of it.

Anyone watching Sora no Woto??? I haven't started watching yet. Have too much other to view, so far.

I just finished Simoun... It's in league with Clannad I swear, less crying, but still incredibly moving.
Durarara! is awesome.
Nabari no Ou is interesting.

I want to check out Simoun some time.

Just finished Air Gear! The ending was pretty anticlimatic so I think I'll start reading the manga but overall it was a pretty sweet, as in sick, show- despite irregular animation, an absurd dub, and an incoherent plot I enjoyed it. If only ATs were real *A*

Durarara!! is amazing. Go watch it everyone. It's got gangs and headless motorcycle cat women.
Durarara is sweeeeet. =]

DURARARA!! is absolutely the best new anime happening, and keeps getting better! Hey, wait, she's not a cat. Or maybe she is... who knows what will happen next minute in this series? btw the motorcycle's really a horse...

I love the Russian sushi place and the Dollars gang and the crazy blond guy with a temper... and the strange manipulative guy on the roof and the online blogging...  and the weird corporate experimental lab kidnapping strays off the streets... and the protagonist innocent country kid and his buddy at the heart of the action! AND the OP and ED are perfect!

DURARARA!! filled my desire for an anime that communicates the insanity and appeal of modern Japanese pop culture... but it also jacked up my obsession about wanting to go back to Japan.

BTW, SUMMER WARS is finally out, with two quality subs; don't miss it either! Hope it comes to movie theaters here.

Also watching: CROSS GAME, KIMI NI TODOKE. Waiting to marathon FMA Brotherhood when it's complete. And I just started rewatching RUROUNI KENSHIN. The Samurai X OVA Trust/Betrayal are my favorite anime of all time, but I never rewatched the TV series except for a few favorite eps. (So much pointless filler... I've counted nine in first 27 eps... and of course, all of 63 to 95. Will stop at 62.)

I just watched Yokuzakura Quartet. I liked it. And I think they kept it nice and short without drawing it out to be longer than necessary. The only thing wrong would be that I saw an over compressed version.

Maybe I'll have to learn more Japanese, so that the titles have some meaning to me other than a random mish-mash of vowels and consanants, which are of no mnemonic use to me.

Railgun ended! Wahhhhhhhhh! :'( :'( :'(

I guess you much love Tegami Bachi.

I finally got started watching Sora no Woto. So far I'm just eating it up. I really like the viewpoint the creators took in looking at war. Even if it strikes me that anime writers seem as if it's WWI, which Japan never took part, having just had a war with Russia in 1906. (got started a little early I guess) It isn't quite the same humor as in Pumpkin Scissors, I think they are taking things a little more seriously.

I like both the series of the previous paragraph, but I guess I find the story of SnW more plausible than in PS. But then I wish there was a second season to PK all the same anyway. There was a lot of untold story there. I hope the same fate does not apply to SnW.

I just finished Rec. It was pretty good. It even has place number 159 on AnimeNfo's list of top 200 anime.

I am starting on  >:( I hate Japanese only names, they are so much harder for me to remember,, kind of like remembering new passwords! Anyway, its the one with Tenchi Muyo's 1/2 brother. Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, good thing I remembered where I saw it! Anyway, it's up to snuff with the rest of Tenchi universe stuff.

Also, am in the middle of Gad Guard. I can't say I'm loving it, but I do love the OP song, Boomerang Boogie! But then I have always loved Boogie Woogie music. Which reminds me of a random fact.

I liked it enough to burn through all the episodes as fast as I could. But it isn't one to leave a lasting impression on me. That or I am just watching too many different anime right now. lol

I finished the 11th episode, and have to wait until someone puts out number 12 to complete the series of Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari. This is an "If you liked Tenchi Muyo; you'll love this." kind of show. I think they thought out their universe a bit before they started making the show. It's harem, but I can understand a bit better as to why, than I could for Tenchi. PM me if you want the spoilers, or to bash me for sexism, and we can discuss why I say that.

Finished watching Seikirei. Not too overly gratuitous fanservice. It felt compressed however. As if they thought they had 26 episodes to work with, and got cut short to 11, and a 10 minute OVA. The story wasn't quite finished, but it left at where you can probably guess what happens, so it doesn't suffer that horribly.

Of this Spring's new shows, I like the Ichiban Demon Lord, and the President is a Maid the most. They intrigue me as I wonder what happens next.

Can't help you. :(

The latest anime I finished was Maria + Holic. Thought it was quite funny, but some scenes dragged out for far too long, which I guess was the point since it was making fun of Yuri fanatics. Next up, I plan on taking down Bokurano, Excel Saga,  or Hellsing. Probably Hellsing though since it's kind of one of the big names.

Fairly. The plotline is a bit sucky at points, but it is overall a fairly good show to watch.

I just finished with Gunslinger Girl. I cried happy tears of sadness all over it.
I'm slowly getting through Revolutionary Girl Utena.

All Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku Nuku OVA/TV/Dash. Y'know, it took me way too long to watch these.
I've also been enjoying Mobile Suit Gundam: Unicorn, though it's doubtful I'll buy the next volume until I can get the entire series as a boxed set. I'm already tired of paying $40+ for a Blue-Ray with only one episode and no bonus features.

Than there's Mahromatic. Took me too long to start watching this one as well, but I've been enjoying it.

If you watch Excel Saga make sure to watch it in Japanese with subtitles.  The English dub will have you running out of the room screaming SHUT HER UP! before the end of the first episode.

Hellsing or Hellsing Ultimate?  Ultimate is arguably the better one, but I still don't know about the way the plot is going.  I've never read the manga, so I can't tell you which is closer to the original story.

Nuku-Nuku TV made me barf.  I just couldn't stand what they did to the show.  Dash was OK, but seemed sort of indecisive.  Like they didn't know what to do with it.  It also didn't have the comedy elements that made the OVA so fun to watch.  All in all the original OVA was the best of all.

Mahoromatic rocks!  A similar show you might enjoy is Birdy the Mighty - Decode  It has a very similar feel to it, despite the fact that the show isn't anything like Mahoromatic.  Give it a try, I think you will be hooked.   ;D

I've been watching Ghost Slayers Ayashi the past couple of days. THe first couple of episodes I was afraid I was watching monster movie of the week, but it has gotten better than that. Although for some reason Godzilla keeps popping up in my head at some point while watching this series. I can see why some people love it, and others hate it.

I watched House of Five Leaves before work today. That looks to be good. I like the story so far, even if people are not the most attractive people in this series. The anti-bishounen anime?

I guess I'll muddle through another couple of episodes of Seto no Hanayome before bed tonight.

Oh dear gods... I finished Hellsing a while back as evidenced by my avatar, and so I began on Excel Saga watching the sub as suggested, however, no episodes past 9 are subbed on YouTube, so I noticed an episode 10 dub and figured, "it can't be that bad!" Oh hell was I wrong. That was by far the worst dub I've heard, and that includes fansubs. I couldn't even listen to it for more than half of the first part. Dear gods, I reiterate was has been said, watch the sub of Excel Saga not the dub, no matter much Vic Mignogna there is in episode 10.

On another note, Hellsing is very good. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I enjoy any vampire stories that promote them to be contrary to everything that is Twilight.

I finished Hellsing a while back as evidenced by my avatar, and so I began on Excel Saga watching the sub as suggested, however, no episodes past 9 are subbed on YouTube, so I noticed an episode 10 dub and figured, "it can't be that bad!" Oh hell was I wrong. That was by far the worst dub I've heard, and that includes fansubs. I couldn't even listen to it for more than half of the first part. Dear gods, I reiterate was has been said, watch the sub of Excel Saga not the dub, no matter much Vic Mignogna there is in episode 10.

On another note, Hellsing is very good. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I enjoy any vampire stories that promote them to be contrary to everything that is Twilight.

Yeah,  Jessica Calvello does a great job as Excel, maybe to good.  They told her to be as annoying and whiny as the Japanese VA and she did her best!  She did so good that most of us can't stand to listen to her for more than 10 minutes!   ;D

You watch your anime on YouTube!   :o   You need to learn about torrents, and fansubbing.  There are also some direct download sites that are free.  PM me if you want to know more.   ;D

Well I don't watch completely on YouTube. I'm sick right now, so the only thing I can do is stay in bed, which means my only access to video is my iTouch, which can only play YouTube. As soon as I'm better and on my laptop and all well, I'll be all over the place finishing up Excel Saga. On another note, I realized I need to finish two animes I started and never finished, so I'm watching Love Hina and Negima! too now.

The new shows are starting to come out now.  I have a few that look like real winners.
K-On!! season two has started!  So far I liked season one more.  I don't really like the new OP very much.  I have hopes that it will get better.
Senkou no Night Raid looks like it will be very interesting.  I am waiting to see how it will turn out.
Kaichou wa Maid-sama! also looks like a winner.  I like the characters so far.
Working!! is different.  I think it may get better.  I am waiting to see where they go with it.
Angel Beats! is another interesting show.  Similar to Haruhi or Railgun in the overall feel of the show.
Arakawa Under the Bridge is just plain strange.  I'm not sure I actually like it.  It falls in that Excel saga; FLCL; Kemeko Deluxe zone of weirdness.
Mayoi Neko Overrun!, B Gata H Kei, and KissXSis (2010) are the fanservice shows for this time around.  None are as bad as Ladies vs Butlers, but they still are all for the adult viewers of my Anime Friday group.
For the younger viewers we have three new shows.  HEROMAN, Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri, and Jewelpet Tinkle.

I think that Durarara is one of those series that hadn't completely planned on going beyond a dozen episodes, but had a continuing thread going forward just in case they were renewed. I say this because I thought the show was done after #12, and then 13 comes rolling along. What I had been thinking of as the main story seemed to be concluded in 12. And if the show died there, I would have been all right with it. Wanting more, but...you know. Glad I was wrong.

Very true.  I just discovered that FMA Brotherhood is now playing on Adult Swim.  :o  I thought they were still re-running the old series.  Grr..   >:(   Still quite a ways behind the fansubs (of course) but I'm surprised at how far along it already is, considering they are all dubbed!  Didn't waste any time on this one!

Now if they would just continue Bleach where they left off.  No instead they started over again!   >:(  >:(  >:(  Yeah, I am going to re-watch 150 episodes.  NOT

MORE AND MORE ARAKAWA~ So good.

This season I also tried out...

K-On! Season 2- It's not that I didn't like the first season...I just felt like I wasted a ton of time when I finished it. I know I can't take another 24 episodes of moe crap so I dropped it.

Working!!- Is the stupidest waste of 30 minutes I've ever spent. It's really generic...and I think I laughed once in the whole episode.

I need to try out Rainbow, but nothing else looks really interesting and jumps out at me this season. I need to catch up on DRRR!! and I've been watching some old anime DVD's that I have. We rewatched FLCL the other night (dubbed, first time in awhile I've watched anime in english. They just did a stellar job on that one.) and I watched all of the Nurse Witch Komugi OVA's last night. I'm trying to decide what I should pick up next. Either re-watch Escaflowne or try to get through Shaman King. I think the latter may be more enjoyable in manga format.

Yeah, I was slightly taken aback when I found out the new FMA was on AS already... now I got to find it online in English to catch up. Though I'm still apprehensive cause I loved the original anime so much and am not a follower of the manga... but I wanna try it for all the new stuff and plus people will be talking spoilers all Kumoricon.

Anyone else check out Tatami Galaxy? Do you speed read too? lol Good grief the subs fly by, but then the protagonist must be trying to become an auctioneer or something. I like it, cool story, and cool animation. But I better be quicker with the pause click on my mouse, if I ever want to try to understand it, or at least not wonder wha' happen'?

Senkou no Night Raid has been interesting, in a Zipang sort of way. It makes me wonder if Stan Lee has been spending too much time in Japan though. lol

I think Mayoi Neko Overrun may have lost me as an audience member. It has become overly formulaic. And the title appears to have less and less to do with the actual show. Maybe is should be called Sunny and Tsudere.

Ookiku Furikabutte: Natsu no Taikai-hen I'm not a baseball fan. But this show has me interested, at least in the game being played in the show. I certainly know more as to why you do certain things at certain times more now. And it is much easier to take than the color analyst on televised games. And lucky me, the show hasn't felt the need to explain a pitcher's ERA, (Earned Run Average), and how to calculate it.

I have been totally absorbed watching FMA Brotherhood the past couple days.

It's almost like watching something completely different from the first series. It seems to move things along so much more rapidly than before. I'm saying to myself as watching, wow, didn't this happen in the other at like episode 30-something?

After this I am going to have to re-watch the movie.

Another series I am liking is Naburi no Ou. Take a slice of life high school drama, and replace angst with indifference. lol

Nabari had a well thought out ending.

I just watched the first two episodes of Valkyria Chronicles. I want more! It reminds me of Sora no Woto, and Sacred Blacksmith, but perhaps a bit better. THe characters are more realistic to me.

I found myself watching the clouds in the show a couple of times. I think the creators wanted that. THey looked god, and aided in the emotional set-up.

Episode 12 of Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari is out now! WOnder how long until 13.

It's very weird to have to wait a week to see one episode of anime... (FMA Brotherhood) I'm so used ot watching all my anime online now, where I absorb like 15 episodes in one sitting.

Five episodes left of Soul Eater.
Finished Tears to Tiara
Going to start Kuroshitsuji and Hetalia

Watching Valkyria Chronicles huh.  Keep the tissues handy.   :'(   :'(   :'(

I found the English sub file for Episode 13 of Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari and watched the JRAW episode with it.  The sub was terrible!   :P   Very literal and Babble Fishy.  I got the gist of the story though.  Still, I definitely will get the Hakubi sub when it comes out.   ;D

I was wondering about those sub zip files. I got them , but hadn't used them.

Maybe Hakubi can get 13 out sooner, as he lost his job. Trained his own replacement, he says. That's gotta suck.

I think it will arrive tonight; D. Gray Man. Now to only hope that one or more discs aren't missing. sigh.

I started watching it a few weeks ago but... "Kanon". The series is actually a lot better than I thought it would be... But dang it, it keeps making me tear up. It just gets so dang sad.
Not to mention they're bumping off all of my favorite characters. I swear, soon they wont have anyone left to have a series about. >>;;

Though by what you're saying, I assume Clannad is sort of similar in a way to Kanon?

I would say, more or less the same genre, but they are not the same story. They are just both very very good, and deeply emotionally touching. 5 stars from me on my Netflix rating.

I see. I'll have to check it out than.
Though I don't know if I'll be able to handle any more of it making me all teary-eyed. Ugh, I'm getting really tired of that. :P
But I guess that is a sign of a good series... drawing you in, being good enough to make you emotional about it. Making me feel like a little wuss rather than a manly man. XD

@ Wuntvor; Valkyria isn't making me cry...yet... Maybe I read too much military sci-fi, or my being a veteran, dunno. REally if anything it's reminding me of Union generals during the civil war. Now all we need is general Hooker to bring his women along, eh? lol

D. GRay-Man, well, Netflix didn't send me disc one. I have everything else they have but not number one. Sometimes that company can be real annoying.

I must be getting a little more used to common Japanese words, because sometimes I am wondering why the translator chose certain words over others. I think I like getting the more literal translations, rather than the American or Anglicized euphemisms.

I had to go to the Anime that made me cry thread to remember which episodes it was.  Valkyria Chronicles 18 & 19.  In episode 18, when Rosie starts to sing, I almost cried.  In episode 19, I cried with Welkin.  I am such a softie.   :'(  You may not have gotten this far yet.

Ah yeah, Isara.

A few episodes later when Landsaatz did what he did, I wasn't sad, more furious. Then it all gets explained why he did such an insane thing the next episode. whew.

Sometimes I just have a hard time with Japanese psychology. They do things Americans and most everyone else would never think about for a moment.

I also watched Black Blood Brothers over the last few days. That was good. Not a masterpiece, but it was good. I think it's own internal story logic was more consistent than some. It could have gone to 26 episodes instead of closing out at 12.

Arakawa: Under the bridge. I had only watched like 2 ep's before but since I'm not in school I started it again. AND OH MY GOD I LOVE IT.

And I hope to start watching Inazuma Eleven soon. Matsuno/max is so freaking adorable you have no idea.

I forgot how much I love Battle Angel Alita and I went and rewatched it. FFFFFF- So good. I also watched Afro Samurai, I loved the animation which is enough to pull me through a series (Animation student, I'm bound to be won over just by that) the story sucked though :\. But if you are looking for something with stellar animation and a really awesome soundtrack I'd say go for it.

And agreeing with Tofu, Arakawa keeps getting better and better.

Next on my list is Blue Submarine No. 6 (rewatching but <333333), Fist of the North Star, or Paprika.

I finally got Dennou Coil. I am only through episode 6. But I think this is one show for the whole family, so far. I makes me think what an anime series would be like if Miyazaki did a series instead of a feature length film. It hasn't been licensed, yet. By now I doubt it ever will.

Ended up watching an anime movie called Brave Story. It was pretty cute and sad. I'd recommend it and I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone talk about it before.

I also started watching The Tatami Galaxy and MAN, WHY HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS? It's super, super interesting. I'm not really sure what's going on in it at the moment though.

Someone has it on CR or something like that, so I haven't been picking it up. I only saw the first episode, but I liked it. I do want to see more. But the second episode I saw wasn't given the love, as a different group did it, just ripped off CR I think. You really have to speed read, or know Japanese very well to get through the rapid fire monologues, which to me are a big part of the charm of this series.

Lately, I've been seeing .ass scripts available for this series. Too bad I don't know how to deal with them. Anyone know how to do this?
Ooh, new topic!?! nah.

Please do. I feel not so good when I can read Funimation all over the screen. I wonder how much stock in Navarre corporation I would have to own before I could make them stop. lol

I think Brave Story is to be the featured film at this weekend's Anime Friday. Isn't that right Wuntvor?

Yep.  That's the plan.  Watched it last night.  I agree, Brave Story is a great film.  The latest in my list of films I never heard of before.  I need to find a way to list just the movies on AniDB.  It would still be a lot of movies, but the list might be manageable.

The other movies or OAV series we have watched are:

Yobi ~ The Five-Tailed Fox
Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror
Origin ~ Spirit of the Past
TO ~ A Space Fantasy
Summer Wars
Summer Days with Coo
Time of Eve


So have you heard of any of them?

Hey Wuntvor, Tales of Vesperia-First Strike. It's not quite 2 hours long. I haven't started watching it yet. I'll have to see if I feel like I am going to be awake long enough to watch it tonight.

Which reminds me, I doubt very much to be in attendance this Friday. But I think I get to go the second and the ninth.

I haven't been able to make myself watch the rest of School Days, yet. I have been tempted to watch maybe the last episode, see if I could do the ones I'd be missing afterward.

I've started watching D. Gray Man this past weekend. I can't get behind it the way some here in the forums have been. It's not a bad anime, but it is not one of my more favorite. I think in large part as it is episodic, and not so much progress of the characters has taken place in the first 14 or so episodes.

Character development can be a very scary place for TV show creators, let alone anime makers. The show may lost its path, and go off on a completely different direction that they had originally intended. Or it may suffer from having too many guest stars, and not pay enough attention to the core cast of characters causing viewers lose interest. Some shows have this problem, but few recover.

This series gives characters progress in dribs and drabs. In order to maintain viewership, and avoid the aforementioned pitfalls.

It is not a bad show. You may well enjoy it more than I.

Tales of Vesperia-First Strike was very good. I wonder when the second one will come out. Looks to be an occasional thing; which isn't terribly surprising as it's so long. But I am assuming there is more, as at the end, it looked like a trailer of what's to come in the credits. I recommend this one.

Also, I see Banner of the Stars has a third OVA. Someone liked it so much they have put it out again. Can't wait to go home and get it started.

Which makes me wonder if Ookiku 12 will be finished by then.

...Higurashi (English: When They Cry)
              Lately, I have been really into ultra violent anime (like Elfen Lied) and this is no exception. The show details the strange and bloody events of 1982, where a young man, Keiichi, moves to the rural village of Hinamizawa, famous for its cotton drifting festival. He befriends a group of seemingly innocent girls, who form a club with him. While it sound like your average Lucky Star or Haruhi Suzimiya, things take a twisted turn when a 5 year old curse is about to take another villager. keiichi's young friends suddenly show their true, demonic colors.
              The show is split into many arcs, that each detail a different alternate of the story. While at first very confusing, Higurashi is delectably violent, with a chilling story more frightening than any anime I've ever seen.

Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne. This is great thriller/mystery/sci-fi/film noir material. Kind of like Denpa Teki no Kanojo, only more otherworldly, sort of. I highly recommend this OVA series.

I think I saw Higurashi. It's the one that three episodes into it, it looks like the end, but.................................................................News Flash: it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings

I can't remember if I mentioned these but I've been watching "Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water" and "Sakura Wars TV". Some great stuff there (despite Nadia getting really odd in the second season).
Yeah, they're older, but I've been watching a lot of older series lately. I've got some catching up to do as I used to pretty much only focus on new series. :P

Don't bother watching the Nadia movie.  It is beyond horrible.  While watching Nadia, did you have any Pokemon Team Rocket flashbacks?  Just curious.

Indeed I did. Especially when the Gratan was hit by Gargoyle's airship I was expecting Grandis, Hanson and Sanson to shout "we're blasting off again!" But, unfortunately, they didn't. Too bad, too, I would've laughed hard at that. :P

As for the movie... yeah, I've heard bad things about it. I'll probably end up watching it anyway... It came with the set of DVDs, might as well watch it. I've watched some really, really bad movies lately anyway (not all anime) so I might as well continue the cycle.

...On a similar note I've been inspired to do a Gargoyle cosplay next year. That is if I can find a red suit with matching pants, I really don't feel like sewing one together, not after my current outfit. Heh.

So far of the summer series, most have been good enough to watch.
Good ones, or so I think;
Seitokai Yakuindomo,
Asobi ni Iku yo!
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi
Amagami SS
Nurarihyon no Mago
Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin
Those are the ones I like and can admit to liking them.
Sekirei: Pure Engagement is one I am not sure if I could say I liked it to my um wife, say. yah. sigh
And Shiki is an anime I am yet to have a strong opinion one way or another. There are some things for me to like, and others for me to not care. Going to continue watching to see if I like it or not.

Other than that, i need to somehow catch up with K-On! season 2. I like the first 14 episode of the series a lot so far. I thought it was going to be too dumb.

I'm wondering if now that the Anime is out they'll continue with the manga, they stopped consistently adding chapters back in late 08  early 09. Then when they would put out new stuff it was almost always filler. I stopped reading after chapter 23.

Haven't had a chance to fully sit down and watch the anime, though from what i've seen, it seems to have more Pantsu and Fan service then the manga.

Definitely invest $1 into a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter and use some headphones! Playing music is almost as important as anime!

LOL what?!! I WISH I looked like that, nix the weird hair color!
I'm really into it, I'm not a big fan of this type of anime genre, like Higurahi no Naka Koro Ni, I couldn't get into that, but I am really like this one.

Edit: Ok... After watching episode 5 I have become lost. And they really shouldnt have had Sayaka Ohara voice Beatrice. There are way too many similarities between her and Yuuko from xxxHolic.

I have acquired a series I didn't have yet, for some unknown reason.  I found out about it while looking at the Adult Swim lineup.  The series I am talking about is Kekkaishi.  I did have the first 1 hour episode, but for some reason I never got any more of the series.   :o   I watched the first 8 episodes last night.  I really enjoy this series.  It reminds me of Shonen Onmyouji, InuYasha, and Ranma.  If you like those shows you should definitely look into this one.  I'll probably show a few episodes this week during my Anime Friday.

Or any FBI agent. (^_~)

It's really sad when the fanservice gets in the way of a good story (like Mahoromatic or Negima!)... but with that one, it got so blatant and constant that the full title should have been "Strike Witches: A Gynecologist's Perspective".

Yeah, they are kinda birds of a feather. It's true that Sky Girls (TV, not OVA) doesn't go nearly as far overboard on the fanservice as Strike Crotches... but that's an extremely low standard to set. (^_~)

I can't help it, though. I have a weakness for the sound of Kawasumi Ayako's voice (Otoha's seiyuu). And Sky Girls does make the wince-worthy closeups blessedly short.

Officially, they're 15-17. Yes, seriously.   ::)

Except for Elise (I think that was the bratty nekomimikko's name), the characters do come off as being that level of maturity. Appearance-wise, though, you're right - Otoha and Elise look pre-pubescent, especially in promo shots. But in the series itself, they look the same age as or maybe a little older than Strike Pantsu.

For that matter, they're usually wearing clothes, the suits leave something to the imagination, and the camera spends most of its time focused on their faces rather than their, um... *cough* hips.


Gah. I can't believe I'm defending Sky Lolis now.  :P  It does commit the same sins, just not as brazenly or in as vast a quantity.

It's just amazing what forum threads make a man do.

Well, I finished the first 12 episodes of Strike Pantsu Witches. Guess I'll have to watch the second season, to know what happens with the unpronounceable aliens.

But tonight I may go for more age appropriate ecchi. High School of the Dead or HOTD as it's written in many forums, and in the anime itself. You know they are older, they don't wear animals on their pantsu.

And I think I have a new Seitokai Yakuindomo, and Occult Gakuen. I guess these three are what I consider more interesting of the summer season.

I just started watching Kekkaishi. It's pretty good for a shounen action anime. It seems to have a well developed mythos. I assume it is more Buddhist based as opposed to Shinto based. I can just see little kids running around going ketz, metz and destroying their opponents. But really it seems to be aimed at a somewhat older audience than many shounen anime.

Oh, and even though i dont have much time with good enough wifi to watch every episode so far, I'm trying to keep up with Kuroshitsuhi II. The first series is one of my all time favorites, so i should prolly bump this season up in my list of priorities.

Ghost Hound. I'm giving this a 5 star on my Netflix rating. I guess there is not one thing Shirow Masumune has done that I don't love.


XXXHolic was good, but too short a series to really delve into the characters. But then it would have gone way too far ahead of the manga, and you can guess what would have been going on if they dared to do that. sigh.

Other than that Bamboo Blade and Chrome Shelled Regios were entertaining, but not ones I love.

I swear, K-On! was made as a secret plot to get me to watch anime.

It's got everything I like.  Literally everything.  Except for video games but I've got video games for video games.

I wish I was a lady so I could cosplay as Mugi with my sexy Roland Keytar (she plays a Roland Keytar...I don't have enough for a Korg keystation though :<) and BLOW PEOPLES' MINDS.

I'll have to look to see if Netflix has Seto Hanayome aka My Bride is a Mermaid. I would really like to know what is actually said in the last two episodes. Hey Mom did some of the worst subs I have yet seen.

I kind of fell off K-On! after season two episode 16. It just got deja vu all over again for me.

Tofu, better go buy Portland Music then.

I started watching Mezzo today, which I really am enjoying. It's nothing life-changing or uber-serious, but it is well-animated (exceeding my standards, anyway) and has that perfect combination of action and comedy. I just like how fun it is, it's memorable just for that, if nothing else.

Don't blitz through Katanagatari. It's deserves better than that. Sit back and enjoy the style of the animation.

HOTD may be really fanservice oriented, but it's still a cool story. I am enjoying it immensely.

Tofu, if that could happen I would have bought it when my account hit $24 last week!

Hanamaru, you too? Seems like you can't trust nobody in this show, sort of. I'm waiting for Abe sensei to find out she is his mother, for real. And that he was raised by an entertainment agent, or something like that.

I got the volume two discs to Bamboo Blade recently. I was tempted to just sned them back, but decided, after I had watched all the most recent episodes of HOTD, Mago, Maid sama, etc, why not watch an episode. Well, about two hours later, and time to get ready for work, I finally stopped watching it. The story has really picked up, and gotten me engaged.

The main reason I'm watching it is because our anime club is wanting to show it for our weekly showings, but there have been a couple of moments here & there that may cause us to not show an episode, or censor something,... (You'd think a COLLEGE wouldn't care so much about that sort of thing...)

I'm watching, but not loving Texhnolyze. I would say that they are trying to be too clever in their minimalist approach to storytelling. In a way it's kind of like watching a slide show, you only get information intermittently. I'm wondering if I really want to do this to moyself, considering it has 6 discs total, and 5 to go. Maybe it's for women???

Well all of the new shows are coming out, so I thought I would go ahead and have another First Episode Theater this week.  The new shows of interest are:

Shinrei Tantei Yakumo -  This looks like a real winner.  Makes me think of Death Note for some reason.  The main character has a special eye that allows him to see ghost and communicate with them.  He uses this ability to help the local police track down murderers.  I await the next episode with eager anticipation.

Otome Youkai Zakuro – Another winner.  It seems that the military and the demons have decided to try working together.  They team up three military men with four demon girls (two of the demons are a twin sister team).  There is a small problem though.  One of the men is scared to death of demons, and his demon partner makes me think of Akane from Ranma.  Is there any way this team can work?  It is sort of like Host Club meets InuYasha.  It’s a keeper

Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai – This translates to “My Little Sister Can`t Be This Cute”.  It is another one of those anime that Japan is famous for, totally far fetched, silly, and just plain wrong.  I can’t wait till the next episode.  I don’t want to spoil it for you by telling you about it.

Iron Man – This one is pretty self explanatory.  Based off of Stan Lee’s Marvel Super hero character Iron Man.  If you like your Marvel comics, you should like this show.

Bakuman -  The main character is a young high school student who likes to draw.  His Uncle was a Manga artist who hit it big with one a series that later became an anime.  Unfortunately his later works weren’t as successful.  Although he would like to become a manga artist the fate of his uncle lies heavy on him.  He accidently leaves his sketchbook and notes at school and goes back for them.  The school genius is looking through his notebook.  The genius tells him he would like to make a manga.  He will right it and the artist will draw it.  He also informs him that the girl he has a crush on wants to become a VA.  Later he confesses to the girl and they agree that if he becomes a successful manga artist, and she becomes a successful VA, they will marry.  Twisted story plot, but an interesting show.  I like it.

Super Robot Taisen OG: The Inspector -  This is a sequel.  I have not downloaded the original series, and I am not sure if I will.  This is a definite mecha war fighting anime.  We can decide if we want to continue with it.


Adult only viewing

Yosuga no Sora -  This one is based off of an ero harem style game.  It also includes brother sister love.  The overall style is similar to shows like Kanon, Clannad, and Air.  Nudity, Adult Themes.

Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls – We saw the Pre-Airing of this episode, but now the unedited version is out.  This one made us all think of Toradora, because it uses the same voice cast, and casts them in similar roles.  Alternate universe WWII super powered Samurai women, or something like that.   Panty, Boing, Brief Nudity, Adult themes.

Sora No Otoshimono Forte -  Well the Angels Ikaros and Nymph are back, and it looks like another Angel is going to be joining the party.  Get ready for some more crazy and perverted antics in this sequel.  Nudity, Adult themes, and humor.

Star Driver Kagayaki no Takuto -  This one makes me think of Mia Hime.  Students in a school on an island with an underground alien facility with super robots.  Brief Nudity.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt – This one looks like something you would see on CN.  Reminds me of PowerPuff Girls or Invader Zim.  Of course the subject matter is closer to Ren & Stimpy, or Aqua Teen Hunger Force.  Two (fallen) Angels named Panty and Stocking help the Reverend Garter Belt fight against the evil taking over the city so they can earn Heaven Cents.  Will the city survive?  Adult themes and humor.

MM! – I am not sure about this one.  It is a comedy about a schoolboy  who is a masochist.  Who wants to try to cure himself and confess to the girl he likes.  He goes to a school counseling group for help.  Unfortunately the leader of the counseling group has heard about him and she decides the best way to cure him is to beat it out of him.  Sort of makes me think of Club to Death Angel Dokuro-chan.

Well that’s the start anyway.  More may be out by Friday.

I also have a couple of new movies we can watch some time:

Gekijouban Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works – Yeah!  The Fate/Stay Night Movie is finally out!

Eiga Layton Kyouju to Eien no Utahime – Based off of the popular Nintendo DS Professor Layton puzzle games, this movie brings the characters of the archeologist Layton and his trusty assistant Luke to the big screen to allow fans to enjoy more of the same.

I hope to see you all this Friday at 7:00PM for another round of fun.   ;D

I'm sure anime purists will probably be screaming in indignation at this one ("That's American! It's not an anime desu!"), but I've been rewatching Avatar: The Last Airbender, and goddamn, if that isn't one of the best shows ever made, live action or animated. I've been watching it with my parents, and it's their first time seeing it, my third or fourth on most episodes, and only my second time watching the entire thing through start to finish. In fact, there were two episodes in season two I'd never seen during the original air time, so that was really exciting!

I don't really watch much anime, but I've been considering watching Gurren Lagann, simply because Katie is like "WATCH IT" and I tend to if people say that to me enough. xD

With my unfortunate lack of money I've been watching a lot of anime on demand (thank you Funimation on demand). Currently the two I've been watching a lot of are...

-Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple
-School Rumble

Kenichi has been a blast so far and I've enjoyed it more than I thought I would, albeit I did miss a few of the earlier episodes. It's one that I actually plan to pick up on DVD, so that's got to mean something good, eh? :)

As for School Rumble... While it's pretty funny and I have been enjoying it, I don't think it's anything I'd ever watch again. For me this series feels like a "one-time watch", and after that I probably wouldn't ever touch it again. I've been enjoying it, but I just can't see myself watching it over again in the future.

I finished up Bamboo Blade a few weeks ago. This was another series I fell in love with. I gotta pick it up on DVD...

I bought Kenichi too! I love that rockin' OP music too! One of the best bildungsroman type anime I have yet seen. Excuse my German.

Sora no Manimani. It's even better if you love astronomy. It's good. It's fun. I like it.

I like most of the new season's shows. But there are exceptions. P&S w/G is one of those exceptions. I quit it after less than 5 minutes. I just didn't think it special enough. MM! is one I will continue with so far, but I don't know how much of this I can actively stand.

Star Driver has mecha that look too fru-fru to me. Mecha designed by Fiorucci! Other than that it doesn't seem so bad.

Soredemo something something might be all right. I got a lousy version, so they missed a lot by not having English as their native language. I think gg is doing it now. I re-dll'ed their version. I wonder if the dialog is Kansai Ben dialect, which may explain why so few groups wish to touch this anime. She reminds me of Osaka from Azumanga Daioh in a way.

I think Netflix sent The Third: The Girl With the Blue Eye. I'll let you know.

I'm only just recently getting a chance to watch the Higurashi anime, and i have to say, I'm impressed.
Any show that can open with a gruesome set of baseball bat deaths, then proceed to spend the rest of the episode on school girls playing card games and keep my interest definitely deserved my interest long before now.

I'm finally finishing off Dance in the Vampire Bund. Maybe it isn't exactly your cup of tea, but I like it. Better than The Third, the Girl With the Blue Eye. Not that that's a horrible anime. But...I keep thinking of Desert Punk and Trigun, but without it being either. No Vash, no Sunobozu. No boing.

Actually, I am liking very much most of the new seasons shows. At least I haven't decided to not waste my time on any of them at this point.

Edit;
Okay, the Third, the Girl With the Blue Eye is kind of growing on me. But I just don't have time to do a marathon and finish it off, yet.

There's this new old one coming out now, Strange Dawn. It's from 2000, I think. Anyway, it seems a bit older, by the art style. But it's odd, but maybe interesting. You have two high school girls who get transported to a parallel dimension to become the Great Saviors of the local village upon arrival. Too bad they don't know this. I don't think much will make me rave about this, I mean I hadn't heard of it until now, ya know? But it isn't bad enough to just toss away.

Got done watching Ergo Proxy a couple days ago and I have to say, it's on of my favorites now. The character development is great, and the story is amazing, although for some reason, some people don't know what's going on... =/ I don't see how you can't follow the story though... I also watched Murder Princess. It was a pretty good OVA, I enjoyed it. I found many parts very funny :)

I'm now going to watch Casshern Sins.

Started watching Kemonozume for something to watch when I don't have an episode of Arakawa, Kuragehime, or PSG.

So far so good. One episode in. The style of animation is super awesome (Like that one crazy episode of PSG where the style changed, my favorite one btw. I've known about Kemonozume for awhile, just seeing that was a kicker to finally start it.) And the story is pretty interesting. I can't wait to see how it pans out.

It's REALLY nice to see some interesting animation actually. Even though I like the stories for a lot of the newer shows, I'm getting really tired of Kawaii ugguuuu giant eyes.

I finished Special A.  If you liked Host Club give it a try.  I am really enjoying Kuragehime aka Princess Jellyfish. I highly recommend it to everyone.  I am also intrigued by Bakuman.  Not a bad tutorial for anyone who wants to be a mangaka.  My wife was agreeing with quite a bit of what they talked about, or arguing about it.  "You need to spend hours just drawing lines and curves to get used to a pen, you don't draw figures.  They don't use G pens in the US."  etc, etc.  At least she is watching something.   ;D

Wait, it took until episode 6 before your club started worrying about too much fanservice in Highschool of The Dead, aka HOTD? Really. facepalm. lol It was good, it was hot. I liked it a lot.

I like watching Otome Youkai Zakuro. It set 150 or so years ago. So it's a bit different in the historical type of anime, set later than Tokugawa shogunate period.

Psychic Detective Yakumo just finished off a cool story arc. The writing there was, well it twisted of the plot with the red strong of fate. Way cool, and a bit hard to follow, which made it more engrossing to me.

And for some reason I'm also keeping up with Super Robot Taisen. I don't know why. It's like if it has mecha, it must have continuity problems! Hello?

I think I'm following 9 different series this fall.

Index II is probably my favorite.

I'm glad you weren't watching the enema-bridged version. I hear it's really crappy.

I can't wait for Katanagatari to come out on discs. THAT was epic! In fact if it had more poetry, it probably would literally be an epic!

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

I don't think I would have to go into much detail on this fabulous show. but for those who haven't watched and are going to, It's not in chronological order. It may seem confusing, but it's not. I highly suggest it. :3

Have you seen The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie yet?  You definitely want to see the series first, or you won't understand most of what is going on.  It is also a massive spoiler, so don't watch it if you haven't seen the series first.

I just finished watching a bunch of older anime I have on my drives.  Shows I couldn't remember, or lost interest in.

Ray the Animation - This one is a spin off of BlackJack, about a female doctor with x-ray eyes. 
Wagaya no Oinari-sama - A show about a fox spirit living with a Japanese family and protecting the youngest boy.  I enjoyed it.  If you like the InuYasha episodes where InuYasha is in the future with Kagome, then you have an idea of what this show is like.
Shion no Ou - An anime about shougi mixed in with a murder mystery.  A little far fetched, but enjoyable.
Ranma_-_Akumu Shunminko - This one slipped through my radar somehow.  I just love the opening scene!  Ranma, Akane, InuYasha, Kagome, Lum, and Ataru, all together and meeting for the first time.  I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.   ;D

I also watched the first episode of Rio Rainbow Gate.  This is another pantsu boing anime that is just silly.  It will be fun to watch, but not something I would miss.
I also saw the first couple episodes of Starry Sky - It is interesting, but not really gripping.  I'm not really all that impressed.  :-\

Yeah, that one is great!

Recently, I got to meet the English voices of Ranma and Shampoo.  I told them about this OVA, as well as provided a copy for Cathy Weseluck.  It might come over, mwahahahahaHA!

I am in the process of watching Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo!.  I am on episode 17.  Even I don't know why I didn't watch this series before.  :P

I also watched the first episode of Dragon Crisis! This show is a definite winner!  It may be surpassed though. I think that Kore wa Zombie desu ka may be even better.  Needless to say both are definite wins for this season.
I also watched the first episode of Level E.  It is good, but not on the level of the other two.
Beelzebub also looks like it will be a winner.  For some reason I kept thinking of Bleach while watching it.  Definite style similarities.
Wolverine also shows some promise.  I'll have to see a few more episodes to really decide.  Japan has an interesting way of handling Marvel comic heroes.
I am looking forward to continuing Kimi ni Todoke for another season.
I also watched the first episode of Infinite Stratos.  It has potential, but feels sort of forced.
Freezing Is a graphic, gore, pantsu, boing, fest.  It also is cropped weird for some reason.  The first episode has the OP and ED in HD and everything else in standard, but it looks like they took the HD and cut the sides off.  WTF  ???
Gosick looks like it will be fun.  We all need more goth lolli detectives.
Yumekui Merry and Puella Magi Madoka Magica just messed with my head.  These shows are going to make my head hurt.
Overall, it has been a good few days.
I'll be having a First Episode Theater during my next Anime Friday.  If you want to see all of these shows, just drop by.

Rating on the Wuntvor scale:
01. Kore wa Zombie desu ka
02. Beelzebub
03. Dragon Crisis!
04. Kimi ni Todoke S2
05. Gosick
06. Infinite Stratos
07. Wolverine
08. Freezing
09. Yumekui Merry
10. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Who would of thought it?  Wuntvor rating a zombie flick as #1 and a Magical Girl show as #10.  :o

I've recently given Hetalia another chance.  Maybe it's because I'm starting from the beginning this time, or maybe because it's in English, but I'm enjoying it.  I still think it's getting more love than it deserves, but it's still a good series (thus far).

I got around to start watching Inu Yasha.It's a lot better than I thought. I wish I had it subbed. I have to have the sound up too loud to hear the talking over the mood music, so I can't really watch it after work. boo hoo Watch it before work! Watch Genshiken 2 after work!

I wonder if it would help to have everyone put Inu Yasha in their Netflix queue. They are missing most of the discs, and if of a sudden tons of people put it on their list, maybe they would get those holes filled. Yeah, right, as if anything ever gets filled in the Netflix black hole of doom.
Have Fun

Hey Jay,

I have the 167 episodes of InuYasha in dual audio.  I will get the 26 episodes of The Final Chapter in dual audio when available.   ;D

I am currently watching Zone of Enders.  I'm liking it so far. it has sort of a Cowboy Bebop or Outlaw Star feel to it.  Dolores, makes this show!

Zone of Enders? Was this written by Orson Scott Card? lol Sounds good.

Clockwork Fighters-Hiwou's War, is what I started on last night, after burning through a disc of Genshiken 2. I'm surprised I was able to make myself stop. I really like this series. It is creative, and full of energy. And the main character is a jr. mad scientist mischevious (sic) imp.

Have Fun

In between all the stuff I'm watching this season, I'm taking the time to finish off the latter two seasons of Hidamari Sketch and Serial Experiments Lain.

Usually in back-to-back episodes.

It's been a weird couple of weeks.

Well, it has yet to be licensed, so there wouldn't be any legal issues (for now).  I'd have to present it to the Dir. of Prog., but I doubt she'd go for it,... maybe... ;D

Technically, there would be legal issues anyway. Most fansubbers and fans consider it ethical to stop distribution once an anime is licensed, but copyright applies whether it's licensed or not.


(Whether it should is another matter.)

I'm looking at it from the perspective of college laws.  In our case, we can show things that aren't licensed by an American/Canadian company, unless we've gotten consent from said companies.  We have four, with a fifth saying they want to know about every time we show one of their shows.  I could care less about the ethics of fansubbers.

Then let's throw in regulations to the mix.

When it comes down to it, we have so many rules, regulations, laws, ordinances, blah, blah de blahs, that it makes you wonder how we can call ourselves a "free people".

Anyway, I'm liking Hiwou's War aka Clockwork Fighters. It's just a bit too much of a stretch of my imagination, but for its target audience, I think it would do wonders. Make kids interested in physics, and science, but without trying kind of thing. I think that's due to showing the applied physics, rather than demonstrating the math of it all.

I also like the OP song/music. It's a rockin' little number. But then the music is interesting to me for all the little bits and pieces for the mood. Mandolins and other instruments I can't think the name of off the top of my head, and more than one musical catch phrase are used throughout the show.

This would be a good show for American kids, but I wonder if it can't be brought to TV here, because of the killing taking place in the late Tokugawa shogunate era. Or if they think that it is too nerdy, or what...

Do you have a link for when these laws that apply only to colleges were passed and what they state?

If so, please PM it to me - this is pretty much a tangent now, but I'd be curious to see. I can't recall hearing about anything other than token relaxations of copyright law for quite a long time.

I have no idea where it'd be listed on the net.  This is in some books available at the college, as well as club handbooks on what we can and can't do, both according to college rules and state/federal laws.  If it were up to the college, we could show whatever we wanted, excluding hentai.  The best that I could do is remember to bring one of these books to a future meeting.

Dennou Coil - it's good to see an anime that could be for kids in terms of characters, theme, and lacking fanservice, but doesn't make you feel dumber for watching it.

@randompvg - Have you been watching Fractale?  The whole dopple thing made me think of Dennou Coil while I was watching it.  It got pretty dark in the last episode.  I am still trying to figure out where they are going with the story. :-\  Dennou Coil got sort of dark as well, now that I think about it.   :)

Jay, I stated watching this after reading your post.  I just finished episode five.  This is one wacky show!  They tend to cut away from things, and then progress the story, without letting you know how the characters handled the situation.  I think the worst example so far was when they first activate the human form for Homura to get out of the swamp. They show Homura falling down while running away from the Wind Gang, then they cut to Homura in festival cart form being pulled by horses (which they later get to keep and never seem to care for) along with the important personage and his samurai guards.  Huh?  Then the kids leave their escort and go off on their own, and the adults let them!  In fact , I will assume they gave them the two horses.  Hello?  I don't think so!  Then they stay with a poor country couple whose two children died and decide to leave the youngest two kids with them.  Then the one kid leaves with the baby to find the others and the lady who was watching them doesn't notice?  What was she doing that she left the baby unattended long enough for the young kid to grab it and run far enough away that she never caught up to him?  An adult chasing a 5 or 6 year old carrying a baby.  I won't even go into the clockwork machines themselves.  I would have expected a big explosion when the super heated boiler in the large battle wolf hit the river.  I also question the actions of the one samurai who takes Machi off to get revenge.  OK boy why don't the two of us charge the enemy group head on?  He thought that was a good idea?

It is a fun show, just don't try to understand it.

I think I like Hunter x Hunter better.  A similar style of story, but it flows better.

Dennou Coil - it's good to see an anime that could be for kids in terms of characters, theme, and lacking fanservice, but doesn't make you feel dumber for watching it.

@randompvg - Have you been watching Fractale?  The whole dopple thing made me think of Dennou Coil while I was watching it.  It got pretty dark in the last episode.  I am still trying to figure out where they are going with the story. :-\  Dennou Coil got sort of dark as well, now that I think about it.   :)

I may, later... right now I'm just cheesed on principle about the stunt the producers pulled on Funimation - "We're not going to sue the people here who are providing the RAWs for fansubs, but if you don't sue the people who are downloading it, we're pulling the license." If they'd made provision for the English-speaking people who can't watch the Funimation sub (by the terms of the license) because they're in the wrong region, that'd be one thing. Or if they'd had the courage to do it themselves, that'd be another. But to strongarm Funimation into being their proxy left a sour taste n my mouth.

It's fair enough to think that everyone suing each other is the American way, as I've heard joked about in different anime and manga. But that doesn't make it right for the producers to demand something they're unwilling to do themselves.

Currently re-watching and loving: Shakugan no Shana. It gets a little bogged down in romance and loses its dark edge as the show goes on, but it's still a favorite.
This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

I think the target audience for Clockwork Fighters is 10-12 years old. I guess. Never let a fact get in the way of a good story! Also, remember that here in Oregon the average age for a woman getting married was 12, and the men's average was 50. Do you think many people bothered to look after someone else's problem aka kids back then? They might have to feed them ya know!

Some of these impossible things, well I just take them as impossible things, and try to not let the elasticity of my willing suspension of disbelief to snap.

Wait until the last few episodes if you're worried about flow. But hey, it's got better continuity than Gundam. lol does anything have worse continuity than Gundam?
Have Fun

It wasn't the fact that they were kids.  I would assume they felt the oldest two kids were old enough to care for the others, no, it was the fact that they gave them two horses, that appear to be thoroughbreds, probably Arabian. They aren't plow horses that is for sure.  Want to guess the value of two horses in the mid 1800's?  "Yeah, we will just give them to you, you need something to pull that thing with right?  Oh and they murdered the entire village you say, gee that is too bad, well have a nice trip, we gotta head on to the next village down the road, we don't have time to go hunting mass murdering arsonists right now."   ::)  I'm sorry, I had a hard time swallowing that whole episode.  Do they ever feed and water those horses?  Were do they stable them?  They give the elephant a name, but they never name the horses.  I also am annoyed with the whole "let's not show how they got out of the predicament" bit.  They do it quite a bit in this show.  The story writer is a firm believer in deus ex machina.   Well I just finished episode 20.  I'll watch the last six when I get up.  Good night.

The different Gundam series have pretty good continuity. You have to remember most of the series aren't set in the same universe.

I started on this season's anime. So far there isn't one that I have seen that I hate. Except I didn't enjoy Beelzebub as much as many of you. Perhaps it's too stupid to me. Just like most of what we get domestically.

As I got so far behind watching InuYasha, I started watching what I have alphabetically. Dragon Crisis, is so moe/kawaii as far as I'm concerned. I really want to follow this one.

Freezing is a guilty pleasure. If you don't have a problem with paper clothes, I think it has value. And for having women as the characters, I'd say it was a fairly manly anime. It has good military leadership lessons.

Gosick, I was 1/2 thinking I was not going to like it very much. And it did take a few more episodes to become involved with the storyline, than some others this season. However, I like this anime. Victorique (pronounced Viktorika), is not as annoying as I had originally feared. The hero guy is a bit cardboard, but seems to serve as Victorique's foil well enough.

Kimi Ni Todoke didn't start off well. I feel like, almost, they were retelling the story from square one. Whew, they weren't, not exactly. But we lost a lot of ground, and are having to re-do much of what we thought we had grown. But... I found I was out of episodes really quickly. I <3 Sawako!

Level E is nuts. But in a good way. Feels kind of like Durarara meets Men in Black, but with more left field insanity.

Oh Yeah, let's not forget Blade Break aka Broken Blade. Still lovin' that.

My Netflix stuff has been abysmal.

I recently purchased El-Hazard: The Wanderers since I've only seen up to ep. 9 or so.  Great series; I'm watching it all the way through again.

Just finished Avenger yesterday. It was a decent anime, certainly not the best. Visually it was somewhat basic compared to the other things I've been seeing lately (Origin: Spirits of the Past, Basilisk), but not distractingly so. The story was interesting, too, but again, not exemplary or anything.

I watched the first episode of Eden of the East last night via Netflix....must watch more of that.

I also tried to watch the first episode of Queen's Blade, but just couldn't get into it.

Of course, Bakuman is on going one for me. :D

I found a French dubbed camera rip of The Borrower Arrietty, and watched it last night.  OH I WANT A  BluRay OF THIS ONE!  This show is everything I expect from Studio Ghibli.  I STILL haven't found a Japanese language version of this, despite the fact it aired in July 2010.  So why are we the last to see it?  Doesn't even air in English until June in Australia by MADMAN then I think it hits the US in February of 2012 as a Disney dub.  We will probably have the DVD's about 2 YEARS after it's original theatrical release..  GAH!  Any guesses on how soon Tangled will be available, despite the fact it aired in theaters about half a year later. #@%*ing Disney!   >:(   At least the English subbed DVD's should be available in June 2011.   ;D

Disney's been taking lessons from the folks who brought you the BCS. Corner the market, and rip everyone off. That's why they give such huge contracts to those folks over at the BCS. Nothing says ratings like controversy!
