Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 25, 2012, 11:38:09 pm
no one else was gonna start it, so as usual i did. but that's okay.

pick a series, people. preferrably one that no one's seen yet. might i suggest the spring anime list? (or maybe a past favourite, who the hell cares what we torrent. >>; )

I'd be up for it, I wanted to check out that series anyway.

I wouldn't mind giving this a watch either, though (as with Evangelion) it's a series I'm kind of nervous about watching due to its reputation for being very violent and depressing. : /

I'll admit it nearly made me cry.  I watched it about five times in the week after that and was emotionally drained by the end of it.

Post by: Penti-chan on March 26, 2012, 12:44:06 pm
I watched Elfin Lied years ago, after an idiot whom I was friends with lead me into believing this was going to be like Chobits. It wasn't

I spent an entire day watching the series, and by the end, I was very disturbed, very confused, and in dire need of Lucky Star to cheer me up ;_;
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Bella on March 26, 2012, 12:51:13 pm
@Red: Ouch. :[ I was pretty much emotionally drained by the end of Haibane Renmei (which still stands as the only anime that's made me cry ... like, a lot), and that isn't nearly as depressing as Elfin Lied is.

Though there's a chance I could watch it and the bleakness could be SO over the top that I tune it out, which is what happened when I watched SaiKano. (Though in that case, it probably helped that I disliked the main characters and found the entire plot to be poorly-crafted, which kept me from ever getting into it...)

It depends who you ask.  I consider it an emotionally powerful masterpiece, but others I have spoken to thought it was innane and the characters were annoying. :\

If anybody wants to, we could also do the first season of Digimon (Uncut Japanese version with subtitles, of course). I can attempt to provide all 54 episodes to anyone who's interested, and I've only watched the first episode, so you won't have long to catch up to me

I'd also suggest Ben-To, but I'm almost finished with it
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Chocofreak13 on March 26, 2012, 11:06:40 pm
i don't mind re-watching the first couple episodes of Kuragehime (Princess Jellyfish). i was going to anyway since i wanted to show it to my mum. i won't spoil anything, and you can bet on that. :3

that said, i'd like to know the premise of the show before i watch it, so what's M. Pirates about?

as for Elfen Lied, while i love the ending theme (i have a version by Teto that i know all the words to), i have enough shit in my life without watching something that's going to make me want to go get a kitchen knife and introduce it to my veins. ;^; if you guys want to watch something like this, i'll quietly take my leave. >>;;;

that said, i also have Sekirei seasons 1 and 2, and while i watched part of season 1, that was last year, so i don't remember much. it's a good series, though a bit ecchi. :3
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Penti-chan on March 26, 2012, 11:17:41 pm
I for one do not intend on watching Elfin Lied again. Everybody else can do it if they want, but I refuse to touch that series again >_<;

You damn whippersnappers; back in my day, we have to record our anime using them new-fangled VCR tapes. There was no video on the internet </old_man>

Anyway, the site does have the entire series it seems, so I'm ready once everybody else is

I have nothing to add anime-related atm, other than [adult swim] did what could either be considered a very awesome or very cruel April Fool's joke last night:

There was even an awesome ME3 review:

I mainly came in to point out that I love how even this thread says "SSC Anime Club".  I love April Fools.

Sadly, I didn't get to see it because I was at work :/.  It's been a rough weekend for me there so far, but today's my last day (not period, just for this week, I mean), so I'll have a few days to rest up and just enjoy myself.  Hopefully, they'll still have the whole she-bang on youtube when I'm done with work, so I can take a brief indulgence of nostalgia.

I'm not sure if you've heard, but if you want Toonami back, you can leave feedback at the CN website here:

http://www.cartoonnetwork.com/feedback/

Just use the dropbox to select Programming -> Toonami, and leave your comments and other info.  Hopefully since CN is bringing back Cartoon Planet, they'll see value in bringing back Toonami for realz (quoting Brak there).

watched the first episode of Azumanga. it feels like someone took scenes from the entire series and cut them all together with no regard to order. though something in me is telling me this IS the first episode. :\

anyone else seen it? developed favourite/unfavourite characters yet? care to discuss? :3
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Penti-chan on April 13, 2012, 06:40:59 pm

I'll watch it tonight and share my thoughts
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Chocofreak13 on April 13, 2012, 06:48:30 pm
dunno if we were waiting for an announcement or whatever. but i figured i was waiting too long.
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Penti-chan on April 13, 2012, 11:35:52 pm
So, I watched the first episode; although if there was anything after the credits aside from episode previews, I missed that, as it only loaded up to the start of the credits and gave up :\

As for the show, I remember seeing a few parts of this when I was in Game-X-Change a few months back; during one of the instances where they where not running episodes of Adventure Time or One Piece on the TV behind the counter. I mostly remember seeing the part with Tomo being obsessed with beating Sakaki in a race (Probably my favorite part of episode 1, now that I've seen all of it), which lead to me raiding their shelf of anime DVDs in hopes they had the box set; being let down when I saw they only had volume 1 ;_;

Format wise, it reminds me of Lucky Star; which is a series I loved every minute of. It's a little more disjointed, though, which gives the series an interesting feel to it.

Character wise, my favorite so far is likely Tomo. There's just something about how she makes everything a competition that just cracks me up xD

All in all, I like it so far. I'll watch episode 2 once everybody else is ready; I don't want to be the one getting ahead of everybody else, after all ^_^;;
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Chocofreak13 on April 14, 2012, 02:31:46 am
funny thing is, tomo is actually my least favourite of the bunch thus far. she seems alright enough, but she's just a bit loud for my taste. and her turning everything into a competition would be more endearing if she was less insane about it. ("i don't know the answer either! now we're tied, chiyo-chan. -w-" )

my favourites are sakaki and chiyo, and potentially yomi. :3
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Penti-chan on April 14, 2012, 09:19:00 am
Sakaki seems nice :3
Chiyo is hard to not love >w<
I haven't seen enough of Yomi to really form an opinion beyond "girl with glasses :3"
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Chocofreak13 on April 14, 2012, 12:41:25 pm
me too on yomi, but considering the potential for craziness here, i think i'm gravitating towards those who are sane. xD

that said, i wonder where everyone else went? :\
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Chocofreak13 on April 15, 2012, 12:53:27 pm
DOUBLEPOSTLOLWUT

i'm suggesting Taisho Yakyuu Musume as the next anime (after Big O) for us to watch. i've been trying to get people besides me to see this series, and it has all the ingredients to become an OSC classic: cute girls, cute girls doing things that cute girls don't normally do, kimonos (and lots of them), nice soundtrack, solid plot with real obstacles and triumphs, and a good, solid ending. is the motion seconded?
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Penti-chan on April 15, 2012, 01:00:10 pm
Isn't that the one about girls playing baseball? If so, count me in :3
Title: Re: OSC Anime Club
Post by: Chocofreak13 on April 15, 2012, 02:35:10 pm
yeah, it's that one. technically the title reveals what the show is all about:
Taisho - The Japanese Taisho Period lasted from 1912 to 1926.
Yakyuu - The Japanese word for Baseball.
Musume - One of the Japanese words for Girl; Musume can be used as a standalone word without being considered rude or out of place, such as the terms Shojo (which, while it means girl, needs to be used in conjunction with another word to get that meaning, making it more of an adjective than a noun; ex: Shojo Manga/"Girls' Comics") or Onna-no-ko (which can be used as a standalone word, but not in a very polite context, as it is akin to shouting "GIRL", as is the root term 'Onna', meaning woman, which is akin to shouting "WOMAN", as in "WOMAN, MAKE ME A SAMMICH". Onna can be used in songs and the like, however, without being considered rude).

(sorry for the grammar lesson, lol. xD)
