Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: SleepyD on August 25, 2006, 06:11:48 pm
Since there's a "what's playing" thread, I shall replicate that here.


I'm currently watching the following:
Ouran High School Host Club
NHK ni Yokoso (Welcome to the NHK)
Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni

I just finished The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya just a couple weeks ago


My comments? I'll keep it short.
Ouran: Looks like a shoujo-type anime, but it is still funny.
NHK: haha, I'm loving this.  It's about a hikikomori and a girl trying to get him out. Otaku culture seems to crop up a bit too, much like in Genshiken... ^^
Higurashi: Who doesn't love cute little girls with sharp things and murderous intent? haha
Haruhi: If you've been on 4chan you've prolly seen a lot of this.  I found this amusing.  A bunch of high school students, and only one of them is normal. hah

QuoteA bunch of high school students, and only one of them is normal. hah


In the world of anime, is there ever a "normal" character?

In response to your actual question, I am currently watching no anime.

True, but compared to the others, he is a very confused normal guy. haha

"Confused normal guy"-Just like me (however, if I actually looked at the series, I'm probably nothing like him)!

At this time I have no money to spend on DVD's. I'm saving my money so I can rush into Best Buy in April and buy a copy of Windows Vista.

yeah it is funny  ;001 , but it's the opposite of Dark


but its cool...
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Pitkin on August 30, 2006, 06:20:50 am
Actually, when I first heard the opposite of Dark was going to be Krad, momentarily I decided to stop watching the whole series; one of those 'funny' things I find about as smart as any adventure novel written by a 10-year-old grade-schooler (this 10-year-old grade schooler refers to myself and doesn't seek to undermine the literary skills of any other 10-year-old grade schooler, no sirree). That decision of mine didn't last for longer than two minutes, though; DN Angel's a very cool series, and after all, in Japanese it's not all that simple (daaku - kuraddo). :D

As for me, I'm on my eternally-lasting journey of watching Pani Poni Dash!, Fruits Basket, Full Metal Panic! (first season), Binchoutan and Powerpuff Girls Z. Watching them so slowly that I'll be doing this in 2008 still for sure. :D

I've only read a couple volumes of DNAngel. Haven't seen the anime.
Haha, I got a bunch of stuff to watch too... Ouran Host Club, NHK ni Youkoso!, Pani Poni, FMA (I absolutely refuse to watch it on CN... not that I can anyway haha), Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, Eva (yes... I haven't finished it...), Zero no Tsukaima, Keroro gunso.... I think those are the ones I haven't finished.... haha long list.

Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Alex Stankevitch on August 31, 2006, 08:31:59 pm
Well im watching a few at the moment and my list moves VERY fast:

Final Approach:

One evening a 15yr old girl uses a jet pack to burst into a lads apartment and tells him that she is his fiance. This happened because there is a lack of childbirths in Japan and the government is using a supercomputer to link couple's together. As of now ive only watched the first episode...

To Heart 2 (waiting on episode 13):

Its a story about one lad who doesnt do soo well with girls but manages to make friends with a few. One of them is an alien, there are a couple of twins who are complete opposites of eachother, there is a quite teachers pet sort of girl, a tom-boy type of girl and the older girl. Not to mention the younger childhood friend who has fallen in love with the boy though he doesnt realise it, thats why im waiting for the last episode.

Ouran High School Host Club

You know the story to that  ;010

Mahou Senshi Negima

The story is about a 10yr old welsh boy who comes to an all-girls school in Japan and becomes their homeroom teacher, though he cant tell anyone he is a magician. This makes all sorts of problems for "Negi" as all the girls are older than him. This has been released on DVD.

Powerpuff Girls Z:

Basically its like Sailor Moon but with a powerpuff girl twist to it, I find it interesting.

Bokura Ga Ita:

A romance based anime with some humor as Nana and Yano love eachother but arnt completely sure what to do ect ect. I think its kind of slow but a good watch when your tired.

Ive also got these on my list to watch:

Kanon
Shakugan no Shana
Bokura Wa Imouto Ni Koi Wo Suru
I"s Pure
Girls Bravo[/b]

Post by: SleepyD on August 31, 2006, 09:10:14 pm
Alex: interesting list... ^^
I don't know very many of them, since usually I go for more action-y, serious ones.  Although, Jeff knows he needs funny in his life.
I liked Shakugan no Shana.  There was a bit too much loli for some of my friends tho. lol

Ouran is great.  I don't know if I can start a discussion about it tho. ^^;

I know Darknight has seen Higurashi.  Where is he?

well, I'll be back. discuss discuss. ^^

LOL, as of now ive completed Kaykuusei 2 and Final Approach.

Kaykuusei 2 is slow but it takes alot of understanding power and using your brain for the story. Not much in the way of plot-building as some episodes are interweived in a strange way involing time. If you want to watch be either half asleep or ready to comprehend.

Final Approach is like an average Government makes some poor lad have a wife anime, similar to Rizelmine without the Ecchi parts. Makes for an ok watch when you dont have anything else.

well, 2001: A space Odyssey its looooong. And If you're expecting something like Star Wars, then don't watch it. Its more of a deep movie than an action one(well, there's a computer that tries to kill everyone). But it's really good.

I usually get old torrents from...well, whatever site shows up in google. But the usual are: www.mininova.com , www.torrentspy.com , http://thepiratebay.org/  and  www.torrentreactor.com

Loving the ED.  Just like I loved Akatsuki no Kuruma from SEED.

And I'm starting Zero no Tsukaima.  I just had to after watching Shana.
And... rewatching Gunslinger Girl too. ^^

well, I didn't knew (never seen Star Trek). Today I learnt something :D

But I'm more a man of action (and obviously then, weapons). Star Wars, War of the Worlds. And anime like Full Metal Panic!, Gundam and...uh, well, I don't remember all right now.

Though the WoW movie was brilliant along with the Scary Movie 4 Parody (see trailer on Google Video). I prefer the Jeff Wayne musical version, especially on the long drives to london and back. Thats like 6-7 hours in a car. Also good for plane flights on my PSP with a spare battery  ;010

Lyrical Nanoha was indeed very good; I especially liked the second season, which is quite unusual for me when it comes to anime.

Coincidentally, I finished watching that aforementioned Nanoha A's just yesterday, and at the moment have no active anime-watching 'projects' underway. ^^;

Mahoromatic and bleach were two personal favorites of mine.  BTW, newyins, go get books 7-8 of that series, and skip watching the last like, 2 eps.  its not worth it!

I picked up the FMA movie today, and now I will finaly get to see the end of that dilightfully disturbing series (like mahoromatic, its both funny, yet depressing at the same time.  screwy anime/maga writters)

We all need that "sweet" stuff now and again. After seeing the somewhat bittersweet last episodes of Mahoromatic (no, Captain, I did not take your advice), I needed something funny like Love Hina to make me laugh after a long day of homework, school, and studying.

If they're fansubs, I've already named some.

If they're... something else, there's another place in this forum for that.

If... it's still something else, I have no idea what it is, go to 4chan or something. lol

I decided to begin watching Zero no Tsukaima.  So I downloaded an episode via BitTorrent, just to see if I'd like it.

So it's an MPEG-4 file, which both QuickTime and Windows Media Player are supposed to be able to play.  But did they?  Hell, no!

DivX is always yacking on about how it plays MPEG-4s, so I attempted to install its codec and player.  Would they install?  Hell, no!

Windows Millennium Edition no longer exists, as far as the shitheads at DivX are concerned.  Hopefully they'll all burn in Hell, the useless tossers.

MPEG-4s go right into the trash henceforth.  I'll see if I can find an AVI version and pray that'll play on one of these lame-ass media unplayers.

How come people can't post torrents which are plain old MPEG files, or MOV files?  No, that would be too easy for the geeky bastards.

Apparently, nowadays you need a different media player for each and every file type.  "Let's make those 'end users' guess which player will play this nifty new kind of file we're designing!  Then let's chuckle whilst they try to find it; and roll on the floor laughing when they try installing it!"

I just use Media Player Classic and the CCCP codec pack (http://www.cccp-project.net/).  I never used to install codec packs, but this one actually works.  Now pretty much all files play, without any hassle.

Post by: MisterCat on October 05, 2006, 07:00:53 am
Thank you very much, Silentbob, for your greatly-appreciated advice!  I'll install that codec pack in just a little while, then go hunting for a torrent and see if the dumb fuckers who design media players will let me watch it.

true. Media player/Real player/Quicktime are real picky and require alot of codecs and extra stuff to play basic crap like .AVI files. Lol i can't complain though, i have all the codecs for WMP and i use Real every so often but i don't really recommend Real. Use open-source or WMP w/ divx 4 codecs for best results ;011

Title: Bad news, good news
Post by: MisterCat on October 06, 2006, 03:15:20 am
Well, I downloaded that Combined Community Codec Pack recommended by Silentbob; and I put Zoomplayer in charge of playing all multi-media stuff, as NewYinzer suggested.  Zoomplayer presented me with a list of codecs it couldn't find on my local machine, so I followed its instructions and installed 547 different codecs (give or take).

That Zero no Tsukaima MPEG-4 torrent still wouldn't play, so I've given up on it and will order BitTorrent to spend the night downloading a different file type.  Then we shall see ââ,¬â€ or not.

But I want to thank both NewYinzer and Silentbob for introducing me to the wonderful world of wild (as opposed to tame) media players.  By the way, I'm convinced Windows Media Player is spying on me; so I'm going to uninstall it if possible or simply rip it out (via file/folder Search and RegCleaner) if it won't go peacefully.

Must be some funky format if CCCP can't find a codec for it then, yeah.   Better find some other version.  I know how frustrating that can be, you download something and it won't play no matter what you do.

Title: At last!
Post by: MisterCat on October 07, 2006, 01:50:08 pm
Success!  I've finally succeeded in my attempts to view an episode of Zero no Tsukaima!  Hooray for me.

;012

Having returned the MPEG-4 version of the torrent back to the cosmos (via the Delete function) I downloaded an AVI version.  It plays!  *prolonged applause ensues*

;019

The audio is excellent and so is the video.  But what of magi Kirche Augusta Frederica von Anhalt Zerbst and Louise Françoise le Blanc de la Vallière, along with their colleagues?

;018

Well, first of all, the length of their names is nothing when compared to the overly-long main-title song:  It sounds like a Japanese version of some tune from Sesame Street, in other words it's much like a lot of anime main-title music.  The words "advertising" and "peppy" spring to mind.

;013

Kids' music aside, it's totally refreshing to see a female character's likeness and name appear in the main title before those of the requisite ballast ââ,¬â€ the annoying middle-school boy.  But, even more relief is at hand:  Not only are the usual scenery-eating boy-hero clichés kept to a bare minimum, but Kirche and Louise actually accomplish difficult and sometimes heroic tasks with no help whatsover from the male bubble-gummer.

;010

I've read what I can find in regard to this series, so I know the Japanese patriarchy rears its ugly head during the final episode.  Surprise, surprise!  But, hey, at least the expected sexist bullshit is (in the main) wonderfully absent during most of the episodes.

:smoke:

Louise is Our Hero, Kirche is a hero too (though the two of them are immersed in a we-don't-like-one-another cliché) and I'm quite looking forward to screening all the episodes ââ,¬â€ even though I've not the storage space to keep the whole series.  Three cheers, by the way, for Zoomplayer and its 1,592,812 codecs!

To those who play flight sims, yes, I know it's unrealistic. To those who've never heard of it, think of it as a semi-flight sim with an good war story in a fictional world. ^^

H'okay, why am I saying this?

Yea, Mahoromatic was great, i was just annoyed that not enough romantic action was going on with Mahoro and Suguru. And that bazooka-chested teacher can go to hell. If I was Suguru id get a needle and pop those things.

I also own the WHOLE Elfen Lied series, not fully watched it yet as ive got about 3-4 on the go and im still doing my Battlefield and Battlefield 2.

Ill probably have a go at the Mahoro AMV if I can get the video sequences right, but if not ill have to do something else and it will include subs im afraid. Ill do more work.

Glad to hear that. I agree it could have had more romantic elements, but a rich plot and good characters make it a good anime. I agree, there is a point in which a breast defies gravity and becomes a flotation device.

Does anyone know if the following titles are worth an immediate download and/or purchase?

Jigoku Shoujo

Shakugan no Shana


I've seen the three listed in the quote.  

Jigoku Shoujo was kinda long and dragged out, there was just too much of the same going on in every episode, but some people liked it.  But for me the storyline just progressed too slowly for my taste.  But you could always give it a try and see if you like it better. I see there's also a live action and also a second season airing right now.

Karin was kinda cute.  About a vampire family that are "nice" people in their own way.  Plotwise it's not that original, but it has a number of funny moments which makes it worth watching.  There was only extremely annoying character though, you'll know who I mean if you watch it.  ;)

Shakugan no Shana was probably the best of the three.  Combined drama and action fairly well, at least I thought. A bit complicated storyline to recap in short words, but you should give it a whirl.  The female lead character even has a few short special episodes dedicated to her, where she is chibified as the ridiculously noisy and selfish Shana-tan.  (Yes! Yet another -tan!  :D)

Watch it here (no subs though) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ul_pMNG7Ck

Don't worry, I know it sucks.  ^__^
Not the worse series I've seen, though ('Hand Maid May' and 'Princess Army' make Bravo look like Mononoke Hime), but it's very often not funny and some of the perversions do get cruelly out of hand (like the two aformentioned monstrosities).

On the other hand, the series has something that most Anime series lack....  -v-

A SHORT MALE LEAD!!!  ^V^

...

...

Although now that I think about it... Ã,¬__Ã,¬

The series botches that too since the female lead is shorter...

Jeff shall add his support for Shana.  I think I'm used to complicated storylines, so I had no problem with that... SilentBob summed it up well.

Hey, btw sairentobobu, have you seen Itadaki no Hecate-tan? I don't know of anyone who subbed it, but the raws are funny anyway. XD;

Haha, I was watching Azumanga Daioh with my cousins on Thanksgiving.    I've had the box set, but I've never had time to watch.  I will say that things like these are much funnier with other people around. (Unless they're annoying people, but my cousins aren't annoying)

Mai Otome is not as good as Mai HiME, but if you need a mahou shoujo  fix, it should be enough to hold you over.  Oh, if you like shoujo-ai, you have some Shiz-Nat going on there. And... yeah, there's more couples.

I've heard good things about Eureka 7... haven't watched it, but I have a poster of it I got at AX.


As for what I'm watching right now, it's R.O.D. the TV. Being the nerd that I am, attacking people with paper is quite intriguing.

No no no, it's not "sairentobobu".
It's "amigabobu".  ^__^

He told me himself that's what he prefers to be called (really).  ^.^
Okay, we're sort of a go on Mai Otome and apparently I didn't waste my money on Eureka 7.  -v-

In addition....

Oh, and I do have ROD the TV.  Wonderful, but can't say much that's not a spoiler.  -v-'

Yup, I have that one as well.   It's subbed, by a group called "Eclipse" I think.

BTW, am I being overly nice if I keep allowing a share ratio (as far as torrents go) greater than 1.0?
Title: It's opinion time!
Post by: MisterCat on December 03, 2006, 12:39:13 am
C-Chan, you're being nice either way.  If you have files to share with others that's very nice; but if you'd don't, it's quite all right to download them anyway because that's what they're there for!

All this business about "leeching" and "seeding" is a lot of esoteric malarkey, insofar as file sharing is by its very nature an exoteric activity.  It's like saying, "I'll give you a drink if you're thirsty, but only if you've given me a drink first."

Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: SleepyD on December 03, 2006, 02:10:00 am
well, being one that tends to download things that aren't that popular, (and hence, get less seeders,) I do promote seeding over 1.0.

If you download something with, say, 50+ seeds and 100+ leechers, yeah, you're being nice if you seed.  
If it's 2 seeds and 10 leechers, well, I believe you should seed at least to 1.0. As a courtesy, not as a duty. I, for one, will seed for quite a while.

I am currently rotating about 3-5 torrents to seed, all of which have 0-2 seeders.  Any torrent with a number of seeds immediately goes away from my torrent list after a ratio of 1.2

(yes, 1.2, not 1.0.  Just a thing I do, having been annoyed to no end with torrents at 97% and unable to complete them. I currently have one that is like that. It has been that way for about a month now, with 5-20 leechers at the same point.)
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Silentbob on December 03, 2006, 06:20:44 am
Much like SleepyD, if I'm on a torrent with few seeders I usually seed for a while.  But if there's an overwhelming amount of seeds/leechers, I just finish the torrent and get off the tracker.

Wow, thank y'all for boosting my ego.  Now I feel saintly by comparison to your average leecher.  ^v^

Unfortunately, in between torrent downloads and cheap DVDs, now I have enough Anime to burn....  I've never had such a major backlog like this...  @___@'

Oh well, you gotta do whatcha gotta do.... -v-

*pops in DVD-R with Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu Final episodes*
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Pitkin on December 05, 2006, 07:52:20 am
I found both the DLX and Final 'series' of Jungle wa Itsumo Hale nochi Guu very disappointing; the original series reached its peak entertainment value around the time of appearance of Robert-san, but after that it simply began losing its glamour... DLX was dreadful, while Final was already a step towards better, yet not on the par with the actual thing. v_v

I've seen the series three times. ^o^

Oh yeah, I downloaded myself the whole Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi this Sunday. I had never really even considered doing that, despite some people kept shoving praise upon it, but after I coincidentally heard the song SOS Nara Daijoubu (sung by the main character's seiyuu Aya Hirano), I couldn't stay clear. It seems very very funny at the moment, just like a series I generally like. ^^
Title: What anime are ya watching?

Join the fray, brother.  ^___^

But yeah, didn't mean personality-wise -- just in appearance, she looked tit-for-tat like 3.11-sama.  ^__^
Personality she has none (definitely no Suigintou), although 3.11-sama does strike me as a bit of the silent type.  -v-

Suigintou is just the best!  I mean, at first she was just an uber cool Cold dark Villan (hey im the guy that was rooting for the empire in star wars) then in the final ep of the first season you see her true motives... ;_; it was just so sad.  It was so terribly sad!  The only reason I was desperate to see season 2 was so i could see if she could redeam herself, and she did!  By not only overcoming her junk complex, but by adopting her very own emo girl!  Btw.. she had the coolest enterence in the second one!  Fuck all that will you wind/not wind crap,   her enterence in the ruined church has anything shinku and the others did beat!  She is a wonderfully unique and complex character full of emotion and drop dead looks (and wonderful taste in dresses!)

bara on the otherhand.... Fails at life -_- her ownly redemption is her imitation of 3.1sama, beloved by all, Who for the record is not emotionless, she just dosent know how to express herself.

-School Rumble
-Samurai Champloo

Here are some anime I am seeing or had simply spotted on italian broadcasts. Some are second or third or even fifth issue on italian televisions.


Rai2 national state broadcast 2nd channel:

- Titti e gatto Silvestro (Silvester and Tweey)

- Tom and Jerry Show (ancient Tom and Jerry cartoons from '40 upto '60 are issued forever and ever)

- House of Mouse Show from Disney


MTV Italy national private broadcast:

- Ranma 1/2 - Serie 2 (Uncensored version. Other TVs had broadcasted it censored)
   
- Beavis & Butthead Xmas Special   

- Inuyasha - Serie 5
   
- FullMetal Alchemist   

- Beck (Mongolian Chop Squad)    

- Daitarn 3 (I don't see it because it is version dubbed again into italian! What a shame! italian dubbing of the 'eighties was perfect. New one sounds me odd!    

Starting from january 2007 on MTV:

- Nana


On Italia1 national private broadcast:

- L'alce Elliot (Elliot Moose)

- Dora l'esploratrice (Dora the explorer)

- Dennis (Dennis the menace)

- Scooby-Doo

- Keroro

- SpongeBob

- Tokyo Mew Mew

- l'ape Maya (aka Maya the bee - Mitsubachi Maya no boken)

- Ojamayo Doremi

- Doraemon (again a redub version and censored!...)

BTW. I hate Italia1!!!!! They acquire cartoons like Gundam (redubbed) and Naruto censoring it and trying to spread it as cartoon for kids!)

- Luca Tortuga (Touché Turtle)


On "Odeon TV" national circuit of associated TVs:

- The Tick

On some local channel I don't remember... (maybe Telecapri local Naples private broadcast):

- Tenchi Muyo

DVD I bought almost 1 month ago and only yesterday I had the chance to saw:

Il Castello Errante di Howl (Howl's Moving Castle)


And in Christmas time national TV brodacasts, TV circuits and local TVs are full of movie cartoons like:

- Flintstones Xmas movies

- Muppets

- Asterix and Obelix movies

(http://weblogs.digital.udk-berlin.de/janek/archives/hinkelstein.jpg)

Italian movies like "Opopomoz"

asterix... now that takes me back.. tho I just read the books, never seen him in a TV show.

As for anime on TV, I watch none.  Much for the reason you mentioned... the Censoring for childeren.  you had some good shows listed on there, Like Ranma 1/2 and FMA.  Speaking of that tho.. Id think it would be damn near impossible to edit that one enough for child veiwing o_O tho I love itthe show is so fucked up and depressign sometimes you wanna shoot yourself.  Tho, masterfully done.

Well, Rozen Maiden: Ouverture rocked, it should be watched.  Nice heartfelt moments in there.

What I don't like:  annoying male characters, annoying music, big-jaw artwork, biological excretions or secretions, diapers, dick girls, disintegrating clothing, female characters in frilly clothing, flat-butt artwork, girly-male artwork, heroin-addict artwork (anorexic males), mecha, maids, male-superiority formulae, mouth-too-small artwork, nuns, nurses, old-fashioned-panties artwork, pointed-chin artwork, ridiculously-large-breasts artwork, schoolgirl uniforms, tentacles, yaoi.

What I like:  artwork which indicates ability to depict correct human anatomy, non-submissive female characters, sexy clothing for females, yuri.

man...I guess you won't like it Ã,¬Ã,¬
I mean, It's a mecha genre series Ã,¬Ã,¬
And we're talking about characters designed by CLAMP, and that means: Anorexic males, Pointed-chin, schoolgirls uniforms, and the NOODLE PEOPLE syndrome (artwork wich doesn't depict an accurate human anatomy).
-___-

But personally I think it's a great show. The only show I'm downloading this season (Black Lagoon ended, just waiting for the subs. NHK ended)


...

I'm watching Full Metal Panic (Original and The second raid) again =D. I just have to say that it's still AWESOME.
AWESOME.

I should watch Rozen Maiden Traumend, but I'm too lazy =/


...
Updates of what I saw while I was gone:
-Voices of a distant star. Well, character artwork isn't really that great, but considering  the whole series was done by only 1 man, I'll let that pass. Great story, but I'd like to know what happened in the end =/. Masterpiece In My Humble Opinion
-Magical Lyrical Girl Nanoha (Also, Nanoha A's). The first season is average, not really great. Has some great fighting scenes. The second season...completely different. GREAT. That's all I have to say. Signum rules :D
-The place promised in our early days. AWESOME. Everything it's great: animation, artwork, music, story, development, etc. One of the best movies I have ever seen, really.

Well...As Suigintou is my favourite Rozen Maiden (I was also waving for the Empire to crush the rebellion in Star Wars :D)...then I guess that'd be a good reason to watch Traumend (so I can understand Overture)

Yes, another person that rooted for the empire!  go darth! go Boba!

Actually I hear Overture is a prequal... But you have to see traumend cus it introduced Megu, Suigintous dying suicide sick girl medium, and the 6th episode is the coolest in the series sofar and its almost compleatly Suigintou. Top of that its got the most bad ass scean of her flying through her world covered in snow with the most bad ass song (which shows up no where else in the seres to my knowlage)

*pulls forward cart full of Miyazaki films*

Hmm, lesse.....

QuoteWhat I don't like


annoying male characters:  Nope.  Very unannoying male characters.
annoying music:  Hell no.
big-jaw artwork;  Vintage-style, but I don't think there are giant jaws.  ^^'
biological excretions or secretions:  Unless you count the Stink God from Spirited Away, no.  -v-
diapers:  O_o  Umm... only on babies.  ^^'
dick girls:  No Hacchan here.  ^__^
disintegrating clothing:  Nope.
female characters in frilly clothing:  Only when it fits the era (Howl's Moving Castle)
flat-butt artwork:  Nausicaa looks curvy to me.  -v-
girly-male artwork:  Look at Porco Rosso.  ^.^
heroin-addict artwork (anorexic males):  Nope.  ^^
mecha:  planes outnumber mecha in his work.  ^__^
maids:  some in The Cat Returns, but they're cats.  ^^'
male-superiority formulae;  BY GAWD NO.  Miyazaki-san is more feminist than even all of his Japanese and American counterparts combined!  
mouth-too-small artwork:  Nope... good-size mouths
nuns:  not in any kinky way
nurses:  ditto
old-fashioned-panties artwork:  Maybe Kiki, but I believe they're just bloomers.  -v-
pointed-chin artwork:   artwork is too rounded for my tastes, so definitely no pointy chins.  -v-
ridiculously-large-breasts artwork:  Yubaba from Spirited Away is about the closest you'll get too abnormally large breasts  *snicker snicker*  -v-
schoolgirl uniforms:  very sparing with schoolgirl uniforms.  -v-
tentacles:  unless it's from a real octopus
yaoi:  Nope.  

QuoteWhat I like:

artwork which indicates ability to depict correct human anatomy:  mmmm-hmmmm. ^__^
non-submissive female characters:  You can't get anymore unsubmissive.  ^____^
sexy clothing for females:  mmmmmm,... depends on your definition of "sexy".  -v-
yuri:  That's up to your imagination.  ^__^

So it's settled then.... C-chan hereby decrees that MisterCat-san and Miyazaki-san's films were made for eachother.  ^v^

*shoves cart at MisterCat*

In other news, I see there's still ample talk of Suigintou, although I should probably point out that Suiseiseki is pretty evil too.  *v*

Usually characters like Gin-chan aren't exactly my cup of tea, but Trauemend really did much to flesh out her personality.  Having been able to experience her full personality, I can even say it resembles the proposed personality for OS/2-tan -- that of the deep, psychologically-scarred psycho woman with a vendetta against her sisters and a repressed soft spot.   -v-

I was watching Futago Hime, but I only watched up to episode 5 because the subs on Youtube only go up to episode 5. What a shame because Futago Hime is one of my favorite anime serieses!

But I'm now also watching Nanoha A's and it is AWESOME! Not sure if I'm going to watch the first season though because it doesn't have the Velka Knights in it because they're what made Nanoha A's so awesome! (Especially Signum and Vita)

May start watching Negima (both serieses plus the dub for comparison) if I have the patience to sift through all the AMVs and crud to get to the actual episodes on Youtube. May also start watching Rozen Maiden again too.

Many thanks, honorable C-Chan, are hereby given you for your excellent report comparing my humble taste in anime/games/manga characters/series with the work of Miyazaki-san!  I shall take your conclusion to heart and seek said series via "the usual methods."

Try out uTorrent. It's great. I doesn't consume system resources like BitTorrent does.

Oh, and don't forget that's "Hayao Miyazaki", MisterCat-san.  ^__^

If you can get the original fansubs, more power to you.  Disney unfortunately hogged the licenses for all the movies, and did everything in their power to "Disneyfy" the presentation.

Title: uTorrent
Post by: MisterCat on December 27, 2006, 11:51:20 pm
Thanks, NewYinzer, for the uTorrent suggestion!  It's turning out to be much faster than BitTorrent (many more sources) and, as you asserted, it doesn't suck up random-access memory like a sponge.

It's a bit odd, though, insofar as when uTorrent is running everything on my screen continuously freezes and unfreezes.  Never the less, the operating system doesn't throw up any Blue Screens Of Death and the torrent keeps flowing in/out at a respectable rate; so as long as I don't need to use the machine for something else, such as composing this reply, uTorrent is just fine; and, apart from the patience-inducing freeze/unfreeze mantra, it's a great improvement over BitTorrent.

*also makes note of name "Hayao Miyazaki"*

Quotedick girls: No Hacchan here. ^__^


you know... Sechan is gonna cut off your sausage link for that.

anyhow...  I was thinking about something on my drive home.  It came to me when I picked up the Phantom Of the Opera to listen to while I drove.  The phantom is another one of those characters I really love.  So wonderfully complex.  But he reminded me of Suigintou  for some reason (plus the first track on the cd was called overture and thats what got me thinking about it)

Born differnt and created a metal complex that drives him to do anything nessicary to acheive his goal, even if overall the goal is actually one of pure and true love.  Like gins junk complex and her love of father and megu.  

that and he says Oh you fool! like she does, its awsome. Those two are a matching pair.

Again, I was rooting for him. I always end up rooting for the bad guys, even tho they never get to win.


in other news.. I have Highspeed again.. and .....and... ovetrure is not downloading!! NUUUU!  the links on animesukie list no uploaders or downloaders.. hell they dont even give 0 0, its - and -

this vexes me.... anyone know why this is, or has a diffent torrent link?



also... I was thinking of making an AMV, but the sub video quality is rather poor -_- what to do... ever heard that techno song about like "who the fuck is alice?"  i think its on one of my happy hardcore CDs.  That song would make an awsome Rozen Maiden AMV! but I am a video file so the sub quality bugs me alot.. that and the text raises and issue to be sure... what do do what to do?

And also.. of all the dolls compeating.. who really does have the strongest and purest reason for their desier to be alice?  They all talk about.. its what they have to do, cus they dont want to make father sad.. but her.. her reasons are so much srtonger and she has had to live through so much and fight so hard... I dont nessicarily want to see her beat the others.. but when they find a way other then the alice game to becocme alice, i hope it is her.

Post by: MisterCat on December 29, 2006, 02:29:13 am
I've just screened the first episode of Suzumiya Haruhi no YÃ...«utsu and I found it entertaining and witty.  Thanks to NewYinzer's suggestion that I use Ã,µTorrent for downloading, I was able to snag the entire series in one fell swoop.

Unfortunately, my local machine's storage capacity is not great; so once I watch an episode I delete it.  Alas, this procedure does not augur well for my building a library of such files!

Anyway, I enjoyed the narrator's witty remarks and the fact that this episode is a scenario within a scenario.  Poor little Mikuru Asahina!  I fear things will get worse for her as time goes on.  *hugs*

Recently finished watching Rozen Maiden's OVA, Overture, and Dokuro-chan. Funnily enough, these are my top two animes :D
Rozen Maiden is always amazing, easily my fav series. Moe Gin-sama is MOE!
Heres (http://desudesu.org/anime-img/) some caps I did recently of Dokuro-chan for someone if anyones interested. The anime has no real plot, so theres not really any spoilers in there. Suffice to say, the series is EPIC lulz. I would recommend it to anyone.

I am on-again-off-again watching Chobits, but its nowhere near as good as the manga, WAY too much filler for a series that short.

I'm also watching Happiness! but slow subbers are sloooooooooow so I'm only on ep 5 :(
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Aurora Borealis on December 29, 2006, 04:06:38 pm
Now Rozen Maiden is my favorite anime! Just got done watching episode 9. And I'm probably a rebel for saying this but... Hina is my favorite! I like her because she is still cheerful despite enduring much hardship and lonelyness in the past (and also because she reminds me of Fine from Futago Hime. The usage of pink, the cutesyness and the love for cake and sweet things ^^). But of course I like Suigintou too because she likes to raise some heck and cause all sorts of chaos! (and her voice and the way she giggles sound really pretty. I think she has the best sounding voice of all the Rozen Maidens)
And Kanaria is cool too because she is quite the maniac! (at least from what I've heard. I haven't seen Traumend yet)

And I think the girl who looks a lot like Shinku that CaptBrenden mentioned (if she has Shinku's hair style, but silver and has Suigintou's wings and wears red lanterns as headgear) is Akachouchin, the drunk (and often half-naked) Shinku + Suigintou hybrid girl. She is often with 95-kun and often carries a large wine bottle with her.

Post by: CaptBrenden on December 29, 2006, 06:28:16 pm
Keep watching Aroura!  The series continues to get better, and what makes Gin-sama truely loveable hasnt really happened yet.  At that point she is just a very awsome villan type girl.. but when all of her reasons and such start coming out..

Hina is fun and cute... But I get a little anoyed with her tenertantrums she has sometimes...


I really need a new series to get adicted too.. or im not gonna survive the wait for a third season of Rozen maiden.

Oh right.  -v-
For a Chobits clone, try DearS if you haven't already.  It's a mixed bag, but fun to watch nonetheless.  ^__^

Aurora -- that's right, you said before that Gina was your favorite.  Even if you hadn't, she really does seem to suit your tastes.  ^v^

I'm a fan of the underdog, so technically-speaking my favorite SHOULD be Kirakishou.  But I'm also a sucker for strong, reasonable and free-minded female characters, hence why the likes of Claes-sama and Suiseiseki-sama will always be my kind of girls.  ^__^

(Plus Suiseiseki is also just so darn cute AND evil at the same time, it's a match made in heaven.  -v-)

But yeah, I second the Captain.  Trauemend will blow you away.  ^__^

Speaking of which, Captain, go try Shakugan no Shana if you haven't already to fill in the void.  Works for me, anyways.  -v-

Suiseiseki is cool too and somewhat of a mysterious character, IMO. When she was introduced, she seemed like a whole 'nother person compared to later on. Why, at first she only called Jun "Chibi", "Human", or a combination of the two and seems to despise him, but in one of the episodes (ep. 8, I think), she actually called Jun by his name and didn't want him to get hurt!

its definitly a love hate relationship between the two.  She refuses to admit her ffeelings as long as the series has gone on so far.  


Henrietta is indeed the best, but amungst those girls it is very hard to choose from them but she stands out from the others as a little more special.

Plus, she uses a FN-P90

So I screened the first episode of Code Geass last night.  I don't think I'll bother downloading/screening any more episodes of that series.

I really wanted to like Code Geass, but there's just way too much mecha involved; and, anyway, girly-man lead characters don't do anything for me.  C.C. seems a fascinating character, but I'm not willing to sit through a bunch of Tinker Toys mecha-malarkey waiting for her to be featured more prominently ââ,¬â€ if she ever is, given the fact the producers are fixated with anorexic pointy-chin guys decorated like wedding cakes.

I screened a few episodes of UG Ultimate Girls some months ago and quite enjoyed it for what it's intended to be; namely, a send-up of the Japanese-monster genre.  It doesn't pretend to be anything else; and for that, I admire its producers.

These whiny detractors with their complaints about "fan service" and such like need to mellow out:  It's all make-believe, so just shut up and go read an improving book whilst the rest of us become murdering rapists or raping murderers due to having watched that series.  Don't worry, we won't blame you during the course of our police interrogations!

Anyway, I propose we immediately create The International Koharuno Shiruku Appreciation Society.  It'll anger all those anally-retentive prudes who rail against "fan service"; and that's good enough for me.

I just finished watching episode 12 of Rozen Maiden and am ready to start watching Rozen Maiden Traumend! I was at the edge of my seat waiting for later on in the episode if it is revealed that  



**SPOILERS** whether Suigintou survived the fight. I hope she does. Her causes of fighting turned out to be righteous and she's a cool character too! But I guess that's one of the things the second season is for!

Now just finished watching the first episode of Traumend! The new opening theme song is even more catchy and mesmerizing (and so was the animation)!

My thoughts on the episode:

*I like Barasuisho too!

*Still don't know what happened to Suigintou.

*The scene where Suigintou appeared in Shinku's dream reminds me of one of the famous scenes in "The Terminator" (with the flames and the breaking and whatnot)

*Where the heck does Jun get all those windows?! I mean, windows don't come cheap and Suiseiseki and Souseiseki always come in, break the window and smack Jun in the head with their suitcases!

*Also, How does Jun get right back up after a double suitcase headsmack manuever? Does he have a very thick reinforced skull? Happens so much he doesn't care anymore? 0__o

*ive decided I like Bara.. tho she is cuter without the eyepatch

*you will.. but it will be a while.. but she comes back with a vengence! And a uber cool music sequence

*That was kinda creepy actualy. but the evil witch deserves the nightmares.

*shinku fixes them with juns power remember?

*He has developed an immunity


also.  If mahoro was here she would castrate you with a lazer C-Chan.


And Silk Chan is definitly the best by far!  MOE!!

Well I finished Blue Submarine No. 6. For the first couple of eps, it seemed kinda average; had a more unique OST than most and made interesting use of CGI but nothing else particularly struck me as stand-out, especially when the main character, Stoic Gar, is about as cliché as characters come. However, the "series" (its only 4 eps long) picks up considerably at the close and propelled it up in my estimations :p So I would recommend watching it overall ;D The very end, especially, is made of win
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: CaptBrenden on January 08, 2007, 02:00:55 pm
Exa, I would highly recomend it.  Its about 3 girls that are acidently killed by a giant super hero.  He reserects them by sharing his body and power with them. In exchange they must now grow big when ever a monster attacks japan (every monday of course for the convenience of the TV crews) and battle the monsters.  Their power comes from MOE, so they become more powerfull the more emberassed they are about their quickly dissapearing battle suits!

If that isnt an award winning plot, I dont know what is.

I mean, just look, its got that lecherous pig all rilled up.



Nidas, that sound alot like how bleach was. It started out very bland and cliche but after one major plot event the whole series turned around making the show the best in the "get strong, beat a strong enemy, get beaten, become stronger" type of show

well it was a direct download site, one day the site just disappeared =/ Neko Downloads or something I think it was called.

That's like a prereq around here.  ^__^;

If you have, good for you!  ^v^

If not, definitely recommended (and it's a bit mysterious and voodoo-like too).
It's about a red demoness who appears and torments an emotionally-deprived young boy, and the heroic tale of a Black-Winged Angel and a Dichromatic Goddess who try to stop her.  ^______^

Title: 'Shinpi no Sekai El Hazard'
Post by: MisterCat on January 20, 2007, 04:34:01 pm
For the past ten years I've been interested in Shinpi no Sekai El Hazard, but until yesterday I never had an opportunity to watch it.  This series was released in 1995 and was directed by Hiroki Hayashi.

Over the years I'd read dozens of articles, viewed squillions of images and had come to know the characters as well as the story.  But, of course, an anime series needs to be screened; and so I bought a digital versatile disk box set containing the four distinct El-Hazard series.

Yesterday, in one sitting, I screened the original animation video Shinpi no Sekai El Hazard ââ,¬â€ the seven-episode series titled El-Hazard:  The Magnificent World in the U.S.  In my view, it's excellent:  a good story, interesting characters, witty dialog, amusing subtext and catchy music.

The main lesson for me was that people who write anime-series reviews tend to form a consensus regarding a series; and over time that consensus sinks into the realm of repetitive clichés.  In other words, don't believe the bullshit ââ,¬â€ mine or anyone else's ââ,¬â€ but view the series with an open mind.

For example, I'd become convinced that the character Alielle did nothing but run around in a permanent state of heat pining for her absent lover Princess Fatora of Roshtaria; but it turns out that in addition to clamping onto whichever good-looking girl happens to be present, Alielle demonstrates a high degree of insight and knowledge ââ,¬â€ no matter the subject.  This little gal is a veritable encyclopedia, a fact which seems to have escaped the review-writing crowd's notice.

Another pleasant surprise was Shayla-Shayla, Priestess of Fire.  The reviewers correctly pointed out, over the past decade, that Shayla has a short fuse; but what they didn't bother mentioning was the fact she's hilariously witty.  She's also the best drinking buddy a person could ever hope for.

Later today I'm going to screen El-Hazard:  The Magnificent World 2, released in 1997 and directed by Yoshiaki Iwasaki.  But let me strongly suggest that you screen the original animation video Shinpi no Sekai El Hazard, as I found it to be totally captivating and entertaining!

Here's one link to more information:  El-Hazard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El-Hazard).

Here's another, in my view superior, link:  El-Hazard Online (http://www.el-hazardonline.net/El-Hazard/index.shtml)

El-Hazard: ah, one of the older ones I've heard so much about but never watched.....

Bleach: that's what I'm watching at the moment. Everyone says it has a slow start but, tbh, I was pretty into it after just a few episodes. I liked the bits where Rukia and Ichigo were both out an' about clearing up Hollows. But meh, just me.
'Tis good anyway. Though just about to start on the filler material, so I hope that doesn't mean a huge nosedive... ;014

and for subbed anime, I'm watching Rozen Maiden Traumend (finished episode 6) and Nanoha A's (up to episode 4 or 5 out of 13 episodes)

And for you Naruto viewers out there, be warned: there will be a massive filler arc later on. But I'm sure I'll be able to endure it when it comes. Hey, I endured the massive filler arc of Pokemon, and endured some of the arcs of Yugioh and Dragonball Z that really started to drag on!

Bleach hooked me fast too- almost instantly!

ATTENTION NARUTO WATCHERS (those of you following the current japanese one)

the fillers are officially said to end after the current filler-arc with the sand ninjas...supposedly this would mean 2 more episodes but i am not too sure it might take 3 or 4 more episodes
After this naruto will start post-timeskip

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"you did aroura :D ep 6?  the good one?  :D :D :D :D  with megu and gin and the awsome snowy music scean?  that ep 6? :D


Yup! For 5 episodes I was wondering if Suigintou survived and I was glad to see this one and that she did! I thought the snowy music scene was very pretty. Megu is cool too! It's sad that she has no will to live though and I can't help but wonder how did she know what to do when she first encountered Gin.  Has she been researching about the Rozen Maidens in the meantime prior to that?

my position on dubs is this:

the old ones are generally terrible, but now they seem to be responding to the fans, such as keeping the Japanese cultural references. Furthermore, they don't have a large pool of talented voice actors to draw from, so I understand a bit.  Also, many of these voice actors do have connections to the anime fanbase, so many learn from this.  

And lastly, some character's voices are supposed to be annoying, so that is replicated in the US dub.

The sub vs. dub debate grinds my gears because not all dubs are done equally. Not all of them are bad. However the subs do have the advantage of always being uncut.

I think that Bleach and Naruto are dubbed very well.

But Tokyo Mew Mew, Sailor Moon (especially the DiC dubs), Yugioh (especially GX ;__; ), Pokemon Chronicles (especially the "Raikou Legend of Thunder" episodes) are some of the worst dubs I've seen!

And what really grinds my gears is that when Pokemon got switched over to Pokemon USA to be dubbed, they promised sound-alikes of the main characters but the new Ash, May, Brock, James and Meowth sound nothing like they used to! May's new voice is good but I'm just still so used to her old one. Her new voice sounds a lot like Misty's though.

I only watch shows for anime that aren't dubbed yet.

Since I've downloaded so many subs in the last few months, I think I'll start to buy some of the DVD's when they're out. I know the dubs aren't going to be as good as I want, but I feel indebted to the animators. As for the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, I'll be the first one on Amazon preordering it!

Title: Subtitles
Post by: MisterCat on January 22, 2007, 09:20:05 pm
I'd much rather watch any foreign-language video with that language on audio whilst English subtitles appear on the screen.  However, subtitles apparently remain an afterthought to most video producers:  They can't seem to agree on a proper standard.

The best subtitles, in my opinion, have bright-yellow letters with black borders.  Presently, I'm watching an anime series in which the subtitles are medium green and hence illegible from across the viewing room when superimposed over a dark background.

So, I'm watching it with English audio.  Lack of adhering to a most-legible standard is not just an anime problem, as even newly-released foreign-language feature films have fallen back into the pit of using white letters for subtitles.

Consequently, as soon as a bright background shows up the subtitles fade into obscurity.  Perhaps we're all supposed to purchase special viewing glasses, or else make up our own dialog.

Post by: SleepyD on January 22, 2007, 09:29:18 pm
yeah, that's a problem.

I think there are only two standard colors, that being white and what a few have termed "puke yellow"

sometimes I think fansubs spoil me with all their fancy colors and fonts of different types and sizes.

while on that topic, ADV has introduced a concept called AD Vidnotes... which provides useful translation/cultural notes on screen.  Especially useful for Pani Poni Dash! And if anyone's seen the fansubs for that, it's rich in extra notes.
Title: Aha!
Post by: MisterCat on January 23, 2007, 01:35:56 am
Yeah, SleepyD, it would be both educational and interesting to have cultural notes available for viewing!  That brings me to another gripe, this one pertaining to so-called "extra features."

To me, an "extra feature" isn't a so-called "art gallery" of concept sketches the size of postal cards; nor is it an opening or closing title sequence bereft of credits.  An "extra feature" should be something actually worthwhile, like an interview with the director; or a documentary on the history of animation in Japan.

A dozen different versions of the closing credits, for example, do absolutely nothing for me.  Who cares?  It's just a bunch of filler enabling the distributors to say there are "extra features," when in fact all they're doing is sweeping up what's been tossed onto the floor during production.

there are also jokes in anime that doesn't work when its dubbed.

anyway it does seem that dubbing are becoming better and better, i just hope that they keep it up. old dubs are so horrible that remembering it sends chills down my spine.  :/

well thats just me.

There are some good dubs out there, I liked the Love Hina, Fruits Basket, Akira and NGE dubs (Asuka swearing in German is win XD) just off the top of my head. Normally though I prefer subs, but I think thats mostly cos anime is a much bigger industry in Japan than in the West so its kinda obvious they're not going to be able to hire as good actors for the English dubs =/ I don't really roll with the whole "subs are better cos they're the original cast/in Japanese/whatever" argument. You only need to look at anime like Fruits Basket and Fullmoon wo Sagashite to realise that sub is no guarantee of quality

Post by: Silentbob on January 23, 2007, 08:20:09 am
I've pretty much always been a sub man myself, it doesn't only apply to anime, but mostly everything else as well.   In Norway everything on TV is in its original language (with norwegian subs of course), except for some childrens morning shows, and I remember they tried to put on a dubbed show (can't remember the name, but it was a sitcom), and the public was suddenly in an uproar demanding they put the english voice cast back.   ;027

My first exposure to the Joy Of Dubbing took place on Okinawa in the Ryukyu Islands, ages ago.  I happened into a shop which had a television receiver tuned to a Japanese channel; and it was showing an episode of Bonanza.

I found it hilarious to hear Hoss Cartwright speaking Japanese!  To the voice actor's great credit, tone-wise Hoss-san sounded exactly like Dan Blocker.

as an AMV maker from time to time, i love having textless opening and closings.  Some of the best footage in a show is often the intro.  As for subbing, yeah some fan sub groups pick bad colors, but the subs are usualy far better then waht youll get on a DVD.  They have translation notes, they time them with the speaking better, diffent colors when mulitiple people are tlaking at once.. and if you like kareoke the openings and such are normaly set up to help you with that.

As for the subs vs. dubs battle, I like to have the subs on DVD after I have bought the dubs. That way, I have fulfilled my obligation to buy the official DVD and I have the translation notes as well.

That reminds me of a book I read about Pan Am. Most pilots stuck to their old time zone, and were forced to watch Bonanza reruns in Japanese. Ya know, I don't care much for the new Pan Am. It's poorly managed and had no routes...

I think it's just a typical episode in length. Dunno if there are any additional episodes though. Sky Girls looks better though (too bad it's only 29 minutes long).

And technomagic? If you want to see good technomagic, see Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and the sequel Nanoha A's. You got English speaking stave-machinecannons and awesome German-speaking swords and hammers, how much better can you get? XD

Most definitely affirm both points. Sky Girls does need a continuation, there's lots of potential in there, despite being a bit cliche. And lots of people would tell you Nanoha A's is awesome (the first battles alone will hook you in  ;010 ).

And lots of people would tell you Nanoha A's is awesome (the first battles alone will hook you in  ).

I'm one of those people. Nanoha A's battles are AWESOME


Quoted for truth.


yeah I'm one of those people too :D The first season sucked so hard though, dunno how I made it through it >_< The extra characters in the second series (especially Vita) really saved the series imo. But CCS is still better :p Fake CCS is faaaaaake.

Anyway, currently watching Haruhi, currently on ep 9

Which episode 9? "Someday in the Rain" or "Remote Island Syndrome: Part 1"? BTW, your sig reminds me of something Haruhi might say...

*laughs like a 30 year old salaryman*

Yeah...that show brings back a lot of good memories. I remember when I was trapped back in 1987...

*zones out*

That Guy: No wonder this circuit failed. It says "Made In China".
NewYinzer: What are you talking about? All the greatest stuff is made in China!

*comes back to reality*

If you can guess that reference, you get 10,000 potatoes. They're redeemable for some cool prizes. Like a cave cricket, or a monkey, or a pig, or a horse, or a manatee.

CCS and Nanoha shouldn't even be compared to each other, since they both have their own good points, and they both lack in certain departments, and both are still awesome despite of it XD

Besides, CCS doesn't have a lolis-turn-hot-chicks sequel XD

I'm watching it chronologically so "Remote Island Syndrome: Part 1" I think. The out-of-order ep sequence was what put me off it in the first place. I'm glad I revisited it chronologically, I do think the anime is much better for it. I understand the effect they were trying to achieve, but personally I think it feels too forced and doesn't really work particularly well.

The only fault CCS has is Tomoyo doesn't get a happy ending ;_; I think I might rewatch it soon actually :D Anyway its easy to compare the two cos Nanoha is such a blatent rip off :p

But the lack of loli only adds to the fail! XD ah well at least theres still Vita-chan. And CCS has Tsubasa but thats just fail :p

but since i have the money because (i work at a hotel) I import it from Hong Kong because it is pretty cheaper! I buy it about 10 times cheaper/lower price!
In Germany i would pay the price for 1 DVD (always 3 episodes) 34,95€ in HK converted about 3,50€ (for VCD not DVD)

do someone know about this serie? ^_^

If i have a "Death Note" I couldn't use that because i don't want that someone die...

I'm asking myself : What would happen if i draw a figure into the Death Note? o_O
Or what happen if someone write nicknames into it?
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Laevatein on February 13, 2007, 06:10:12 am
Ooooh Death Note, the manga series so popular it's spawned two live-action movies and a possible US remake O_O

Followed the manga about a couple of years ago, still the most exciting mind-game manga that it's it is. XD

I can imagine that writing a figure or a nickname wouldn't do anything, just a waste of notebook pages (although the notebook doesn't really run out of pages, so it's the ultimate artbook! :D)

Although I prefer to have a Geass over a Death Note anyday  ;010

I finished .hack//roots. It was crap. I do not recommend spending any money on it. I also do not reommend wasting time watching it. The conclusion is inconclusive and vauge. Characters randomly change personalities for no apparent reason. Entire episodes have no relevance to the plot. Wait, no, it doesn't really have a plot. It's like watching a non-stop recording of a single intersection on an average day. Maybe something interesting happens but overall it's dull and pointless.

Black Lagoon Mini-Review
This series is divided into two sections. Black Lagoon is the opposite of .hack//roots(see above). Characters are well developed despite a complete lack of significant background scenes. All development is created from normal dialogue and about five seconds of flashback. I would have liked to know more about all of them but it does not detract from the anime.

Animation quality is good. In 24 episodes I only noticed two cases of recycled animations. The storyline is relatively original. The girls are quite... appealing... while still maintining believable proportions. Black Lagoon also contains the only flamboyant use of "dual pistols" that did not send me into a frothing rage. Firearms fans must watch this.

There is some fanservice. Much of it is negated by the surrounding events and registers only as a, "wait, what?" kind of thing.

I have not read the manga and do not know if it is even translated to english. From passing references it seems that the animated series is follows the original manga better than most. From what I read the changes were for the better, like a revision of the manga instead of a departure.

The conclusion is better than most anime. There is actually closure! It's an anime where everyone lives AND most questions are answered. Wow! F-U Evangelion. Still, there is room for a sequel.

Conclusion: Black Lagoon is mostly violent action with some fitting funny scenes thrown in. Compared to most recent anime, this is a must-see.

NOTE: The easily disturbed should not watch the first story arc of season 2. It deals with a topic that is unfortunately based on real events. The really easily disturbed should not watch any of this.

Also, my opinions on your choice o' dl-s:
Shana is supreme goodnessu, so even if you find it having a slow start (which i did), go on watching. Then you shall see its pure pwninessu for sure, ssu! ^-^

Chrno crusade is quite good, at least in the beginning - but just like i felt with trigun, i think its concluding arc is rather slow and sloppy. But otherwise, a great show (Chrno's evil eyessu in ep4 are serious MAGIC! =3)

Post by: Laevatein on March 14, 2007, 07:45:30 am
Considering their opportunities to show fanservice, the actual series has a minimal amount of fanservice. It's mostly mecha battles and politics, and a little bit of badass soap on the side. Sure there are the occasional nakedness and such, but Code Geass isn't really a nude-fest (unless you believe the fanart ^^;;;; ).

Now the Code Geass Picture Book DVD specials on the other hand (especially 2.5, which is essentially one big bath scene fanservice XD)

And... Lelouch commands you to Watch Code Geass Now, WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH!!!!  ;025

Well, I picked a recent series at random to watch and the choice fell on Nodame Cantabile.  I like how they focus on something serious like music while still keeping a light comedic atmosphere.   Ayako Kawasumi of Mahoromatic fame (among other series) provides the female lead voice.

well watched the first two episodes of StrikerS. Words cannot quite sum up how I feel about this anime... oh wait, yes they can; overrated shit. Its pretty clear that my fav character in Nanoha, Vita, is going to be completely sidelined. I have to say I think As was a fluke. The original series was mediocre but at least As redeemed it. StrikerS is just... well, fail. There I said it. The new characters, Cliche Tsundere and Whiney Tomboy have so far added nothing to the series. Would not recommend.

On a brighter note, Hidamari Sketch continues to be epic and Magipoka and Manabi Straight are still going strong :D

Two episodes and you already consider this as a "fail"? Oh well. Maybe the series started a bit slow (especially comparing As), but don't forget, StrikerS going to be 26 episodes long. Some of the characters from the previous series may have sidelined , but the new characters are not that bad, in my opinion - maybe have some cliche-ish parts in their personality, but that's not makes them completely failed characters (We can find cliche-ish parts in almost every series' characters) So I can recommend than try at least 3-4 more episodes. If you still don't like it, then all right, drop it.
Side Note: Even though we're not on the same line, I liked how you argue. You confirmed your opinion, and you don't use some poor "OMG ITS OVERRATED IT SUCKS"-style "proving". Constructive criticisms are welcome!

Post by: Laevatein on April 16, 2007, 07:57:00 am
I agree it's slow at the moment... but it's only three episodes in, and three episodes does not make a 26 episode series. It's typically best to watch at least 6 episodes before deciding whether to watch or not.

And I like many of the new characters, dunno whether it's all the Super Robot references they have, or because their character archetypes are new to the Nanohaverse.

Seems like the actions starting to simmer with episode 3 though, and this I gotta see in 4 next week:

haha for most series I make snap judgments based on the first ep, the only reason StrikerS lasted longer was because I wanted to see how much Vita was going to be in it :p Turns out barely at all. And my other fav character, Arf, hasn't been in it all yet! Maybe I'll watch another ep just to see her actually xD

Quote from: "Exa"Maybe the series started a bit slow (especially comparing As), but don't forget, StrikerS going to be 26 episodes long.


see, the 26 ep thing endears me to it even less. A series has to be VERY good for me to watch it past 30 eps, and frankly Nanoha doesn't make the cut. Oh sure, from a technical standpoint its very well made, but really the series offers nothing that hasn't been done before (the magical girl genre is looking extremely tired now sadly) and no likable main characters imo since Fate stopped being an anti-hero. Nanoha especially is such a blatant ripoff of Sakura from CCS shes not even worthy of being called a parody. In the original series and As, Nanoha was little more than Sakura with all the life and charm drained out of her and now shes just seems completely lifeless and two-dimensional. gah, I'm ranting now, I'll leave it there. If I'm not making any sense, its because I'm tired and caffeinated, never a good combo :p

I see, and I find that interesting. When I started to watch the first Nanoha series, I wasn't amused at first. After Fate's appearance, I became excited, because the ordinary "monster-of-the-day" plot was changed to a much more interesting rivalry between the two characters. Also, the background stories were quite unique in that genre.
About the missing characters: Yes, that's true that some characters' role have been lowered a bit, and some of them aren't appeared at all yet, but I think they have some important roles later in the storyline.

Nanoha is a Sakura ripoff? Hm... In fact, I judged CCS after one episode (I know, it's not good  ;140 ), and I threw it away. (Somehow card collecting in a cute magical girl outfit wasn't enough for me.). In fact, I found the Nanoha series quite different from other magical girl series (no power of love and fewer other cliche-ish moments). In StrikerS, Nanoha's role changed much, but I don't think, this made her two-dimensional. Maybe she doesn't have the same charm and cuteness that she had earlier, more like, she has an other type of charm - it's hard to say in words. And you're making sense, you're a model of smart and calm criticist.

well if you follow the CCS comparison through, Fate is actually little more than a more restrained female version of Shoaran =/

Quote from: "Exa"Also, the background stories were quite unique in that genre.


This is true and was one of the things that kept me watching the first season.

XD

Quote from: "Exa"(Somehow card collecting in a cute magical girl outfit wasn't enough for me.).


Although I'm probably going off topic a bit here, CCS for me was a great series, not so much because of the plot, but because of the sub plots and character development. The characters felt... well so much more real I guess than Nanoha's characters. I don't think I ever thought of any of them as stereotypical or foil characters (even if some of them probably are in hindsight). And at 70 eps and two films, its by far the longest series I've ever seen and I still love it :p Anyway, going off the point here, back on topic.

Quote from: "Exa"In fact, I found the Nanoha series quite different from other magical girl series (no power of love and fewer other cliche-ish moments).


hmm I guess the problem is that magical girl as a genre tends to have little variety. The main character tends to be bland enough for the target audience (lets not kid ourselves, its preteen girls in most cases) to project themselves onto the character. Some cute animal spirit/guardian usually comes along for the ride. Theres usually a rival of some kind. The main character usually has one or two "best friends" that get more screen time and character development than other characters. Theres usually an older love interest (I guess this is where Nanoha departs form the norm more than anything else, Nanoha seems to all intents and purposes pretty much asexual so far). Etc. Personally I think that Nanoha fits the magical girl mold very well, although it usually gets darker towards the end of each respective season. It just seems to lack the charm that most magical girl animes have. Maybe that is what I dislike about it thinking about it. It tries too hard to break the mold and be a seinen anime and ends up losing the charm of traditional magical girls and not quite achieving the seinen transition it sought. It ends up being stuck between the two genres and as a result, has the advantages of neither. Imo of course :p

If I'm sounding overly negative, I don't mean to. The tweaks they made to the genre in the original series kept the series interesting and watchable; especially considering how slow the series was to start, this alone is impressive. And the introduction of the Wolkenritter in As brought some much needed variety to the cast (even if Hayete is just as boring as Nanoha). And as I said earlier, from a technical standpoint, the anime is impressive. So if anyone hasn't watched any Nanoha yet, I'd say watch the first two seasons then drop it.

tl;dr, long post is loooooooooooong, etc

Excellent post! You really understand the weakness of the magical girl (MG for later) genre. After a while, they couldn't make more variations around the similar storyline, that's why most MG's are quite similar to each other. As I told earlier, I don't know much about CCS, so I have no idea about sub plots and character developments there. Maybe I'll try it again... On the other hand, you are right that Nanoha is a bit of hybrid between a MG and a seinen anime. Maybe I like the series because of that, because it provides me cute characters, somehow well-developed storyline, and amazingly done fighting scenes - a little bit of everything, but that's enough for me.
I respect your opinion and accept your reasons. You're not sounding negative, you just said what you feel about the series.

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"well at least I know now what homer would look like as a pimp -_-

Been thinking of watching that hell girl series.. it was recomended to me. Anyone else seen it? is it good?


Jigoku Shoujo is good. yesh. ^^

I haven't seen all of it, yet but I hear it gets a lot better later in the series.  


Regarding this topic:
I have watched the first episodes of:
Romeo x Juliet
Darker than Black
El Cazador de la Bruja

So far, I think I'm going to like this Spring anime season.

I also plan on watching:
sola
Lucky Star

Continuing/starting the series above will take place after finals.  They haven't gotten into much story yet, so the temptation is easily overcome. XD;

Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl), to be honest is somewhat repetitive, since it features how various people deal with issues of revenge, and thus is more like an anthology, but with Ai Enma and the Hotline to Hell being the recurring characters... at least, up until episode 8, but you'll have to watch to find out.

Overall, it's hit or miss, with some episodes being rather trite and boring... but the episodes that are good, will make you THINK for some time after (episode 23 *shivers*).

While waiting for the next StrikerS episode, started picking up on other titles this spring, starting with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and maybe Romeo X Juliet later.

Added after 49 minutes:

Holy... Gurren Lagann is SO up my alley XD *DL's episode 2*

Quote from: "Nidas"Although I'm probably going off topic a bit here, CCS for me was a great series, not so much because of the plot, but because of the sub plots and character development. The characters felt... well so much more real I guess than Nanoha's characters......


but you have to remember they had far more episodes to do this in.  i could say the same thing about DBZ.  same story different place, make characters have more personality...didn't make the series any better.  i will admit i like CCS but i felt the characters lacked any sense of realism because of how long the series went...oh well just my personal opinion...

anyway lets see...um right now im watching Claymore,  Naruto Shippuuden (THANK GOD THE FILLERS ARE OVER!), Bleach (same story as naruto there), went back and started to watch all my macross, Black Cat, Burst Angel, and NGE.... man i got WAY too much free time....

Well of course that was a joke. I also didn't think Haruhi to be that funny, I just fancied the oh so charming story and well made characters. Plus I read the novel on a previous occasion so I wanted see how the animé was.

oh noes! i see a fissure forming worse then the gin/desu alliance days o_o
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: NewYinzer on April 23, 2007, 09:30:59 pm
In recent news, a serious rift has formed in the GIN-DESU Alliance. Those in favor of GIN have aligned themselves with the Church of Haruhi, now referred to as GIN-SOS. Those in favor of DESU have aligned themselves with Britannia, now referred to as DESU-BRIT. Those supporting Shinku have formed their own alliance for their own protection with those who value old romantic comedies such as Love Hina and Onegai Teacher/Twins which will remain neutral through the Second Anime War.

To recap, the new alliances are:
1. GIN-SOS (Rozen Maiden/The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya fans)
2. DESU-BRIT (Rozen Maiden/Code Geass fans)
3. FUMO (Rozen Maiden/Love Hina/Onegai Teacher/Onegai Twins/Full Metal Panic Fans - AKA NewYinzer)

In other news, NewYinzer will be watching Code Geass after his midterms, projects, and science competitions are over. On a more striking note, Denmark has given up Greenland in exchange for $500,000,000 in DELICIOUS CAKE! Tensions run high between the Philippines and Iceland as to how to obtain said cake...

Oh well, then I will create a fifth group, from some Renegade GINists who joined the new and fast expanding Lucky Star-ism!

This is madness!

Impressive, but this is not only about the power of armies! If you can't persuade people to join to your side, the whole things is worthless! Anyway, the HARU-NATAlliance don't want to war with your faction, I believe in a more peaceful solution...

Okay, back on topic. Currently I'm watching Shakugan no Shana. I just finished ep 8, and I find it great! Not only because of the interesting base situation, but the characters, the storyline, and many other things which are too long to say... Also, the OP and ED is good, too. Highly recommended, if you ask me! ;)
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: NejinOniwa on April 26, 2007, 04:07:35 am
Total agreement! Also i've got some un-watched Kanon in my queue...
That series is total win, and while not as weird as Haruhi, they are very similar in a couple of ways:
Kyo-Ani! (Same animation and style)
More than meets the eye of the main character (You get the point.)
And lastly, but not least at all...
SUGITA TOMOKAZU! Kyon's VA is in the male lead again, and he again does a completely awesome job at sarcasm, sighs and all else in the spirit of Kyon-iness.

H-NA commands ye to watch!

MASSIVE WIN :D

Anyway, my current list of anime is pretty long, well by my standards anyway. Normally I'm only watching a couple of animes at the same time:

Claymore - 2
Code Geass - 23
Hidamari Sketch - 7
Lucky Star - 4
Manabi Straight - 10
Nagasarete Airantou - 4
Seirei no Moribito - 2

And at some point I need to finish Tsukuyomi too, but the story is so damn slow and Hazuki is really the only thing that makes the series worth watching =/

Lots of people seem to be watching Lucky Star at the moment. Its OK. Nothing fantastic really and theres only 2 decent characters in it, making for a weak central cast. Its cute and funny though so I'll probably finish it :D

I started watching Nodame Cantabile yesterday, and I have to say, it's pure awesomeness, that is if you really like classical music (me). It is also very educating for piano players, I showed it to a colleague of mine who teaches piano at the same school as I, and he told me (although I don't belive he actually admitted it since he is a very proud person) that he learned some tricks from it.

So all musicians and music lovers get your act together and watch Nodame Cantabile!

1. Darker than Black. This is a new one, there are only five episodes out, but 'till now I must say that I like it. It happens in the future for those who don't like those kind of animés.

2. Piano. This is a series that I have heard a lot about from my elder brother the last two weeks or so, I finally got around and copied it from his hard drive into mine, I also like that one,it has a good feeling in it. But like Nodame Cantabile it's about music (although there is also some romance) mainly classical. But I have only seen the first episode so I can't really say.

I recommend Piano for Tsubashi by the way =P

Aria - 3
Claymore - 7
Code Geass - 24
FLCL - 2
.hack//Roots - 2
Hidamari Sketch - 7
Lucky Star - 6
Manabi Straight - 11
Nagasarete Airantou - 6
Seirei no Moribito - 6

Finished GTO recently. Despite a rather crappy ending, it has one of the best dubs around (though it does take a couple of eps for the cast to find their feet). In contrast, the Jap audio is fairly mediocre for a series that was so popular 0_o One of the longest series I've ever watched, weighing in at 43 eps. Would recommend :D

Poor Manabi Straight. Everything started so well! With a bit of trimming it could have been so much better, the last few eps have really hurt the series with little real headway in plot made =/ It could easily have been a great, say, 9-10 ep series, but no, they have to push the whole "friends forever!" angle with all the subtlety of a brick. Rapidly sliding into mediocrity, which is sad cos I really enjoyed the series for the first 2/3s or so.

Lucky Star continues to be overrated, but enjoyable, slice-of-life comedy. Nothing much else to add really. Just more of the same. It is showing a danger of repetitiveness imo, hopefully they do something to avoid that otherwise I can see it getting tiresome.

Claymore has recently turned from moderately interesting to potentially EPIC win :p The last couple of eps have really raised it in my estimation. Hoping for more of the same.

Watched the first ep of FLCL today. It really tries far too hard to be random. Dunno what the fuss is about really. Will probably drop but the first ep was just good enough to warrant watching the second ep. Hopefully it does SOMETHING to redeem itself in the second ep, otherwise it's gonna be dropped.

Also started watching Aria today. It could have been so much better. That goddam dog... thing in it really pisses me off. Its coming very close to ruining an otherwise very good anime. What is it with Japan and these "cute" animal sidekicks that turn up in (and eternally ruin) anime?

Hidamari Sketch continues to be epic, but the fansubbers are slowing down >: / FASTER MY MINIONS, NEED MOAR!

Nagasarete Airantou, though formulaic (hey it's harem, what did you expect?), has a charm that the harem genre really seems to lack recently. The only harem anime I've really enjoyed since Love Hina. The main character is getting a bit annoying though but I don't foresee that being a series-ruining problem.

Seirei no Moribito, now that's an interesting series. The cast of characters is VERY strong, something that has been lacking in... well most animes I've watched recently to be blunt. The plot is good, especially since it comes from the increasingly cluttered adventure genre. The fight scenes are well done. The art style is slightly off for my tastes, but that's more me being picky than anything else. Hopefully it can maintain its form.

END RAMBLE :p

Great, now I feel an urge to rewatch the evil laugh of Lelouch at the end of ep 23...

Currently Watching:

-Romeo x Juliet: 06
-Nanoha StrikerS: 05
-Heroic Age: 05
-Lucky Star: 05
-Hayate no Gotoku: 04

Romeo x Juliet, so far, is the best show of this season. Nanoha Strikers...not bad, but still lacks *something*. Heroic Age...not too bad.  Hayate...lol @ narrator & Santa Claus. Lucky Star not bad, but I hope it gets better.

Also, I see that while I was gone, a "Haru-Nata Alliance" was formed. Everyone loves Konata....there's no love for Kagami ;_;

News in brief:
- Lelouch dies in episode 24 (which makes no sense)
- President Rozen Maiden will sign the Equal Rights Amendment into law three years from now (considering that current events take their course)
- NewYinzer is watching Lucky Star (this is true, and it is teh win)

Now for some serious Code Geass Related Predictions:
- Since Zero has killed someone Suzaku cared about (I ain't tellin), Suzaku will kill someone Zero cares about (Shirley, Kallen, or Nunnaly)
- Orange-kun will come to life and side with the Order of the Black Knights
- Diethard Ried will betray the Order of the Black Knights
- Nina dies (unlikely, but after episode 12, I think most people want her to)
- In the end, Zero has successfully established the United States of Japan in all of the Japanese Isles, but he is still at war with Britannia
- C.C. and V.V. duke it out to decide the fate of Japan
- Contrary to popular opinion, Suzaku will not die

Just been watching more .hack//Roots and Aria the last few days. Despite a slow start, hack has turned into a nice little anime. Far from perfect but still entertaining.

As for Aria, my doubts about that cat/dog/thing (its sposed to be a cat but it really looks more like a dog if anything) seem to be well founded which is sad cos otherwise it's a very nice anime. I'll probably finish the series since its only 13 eps and I'm already over half way through now. Could have been so much better, the basic premise is a very nice one (basically waterworld slice-of-life). Worth trying out, you'll probably love it if you can tolerate the damn cat. Did I mention I hate the cat? I really hate the cat.

One of my mates has recommended me Eureka 7 so that's next on the list. I'm not really a fan of the art style but he's told me to persevere with it :p

Quote from: "CaptBrenden"I like azumanga daio and peeps have said its like that.


Don't even compare them :p They're similar only in that they're both slice-of-life school comedies. But their artstyles are completely different, as are the characters' personalities, as is the way the comedy is executed, etc. Basically they have very different tones despite coming from ostensibly the same genre. That said, Lucky Star's most recent ep seemed more or less a direct port of one of Azumanga's eps; whether this is deliberate parodying or lack of imagination on the production staff's part or simply lack of diversity in an increasingly cluttered genre (school-life: the new harem?) is up to you, the viewer, to decide.

As for quality, Azumanga is epic, one of the few animes I've seen that had me genuinely lolling (Azuamaga, Dokuro-chan and Hidamari Sketch are probably the only ones if anyone cares) and with a very strong central cast, one of the strongest I've ever seen (excelled only by Rozen Maiden that I can think of). Lucky Star by comparison is merely above average, with a crappy central cast (2 good chars? lol wut) and running off the back of Haruhi-style humour that is popular at the moment. Course, I like both, and would actually recommend both too, but Lucky Star isn't even close to Azumanga's league imo. Also, Hidamari Sketch > all when it comes to school-life :D
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: CaptBrenden on May 19, 2007, 12:29:35 pm
Humm.. Im on ep 4 now, just finished ep 3.


....so whats the big deal?  Good enough to keep watching?  Yes.  Have I fallen on the floor and loled?  No.  I couldnt breath through azumanga daio, Ive only chuckled at Lucky Star so far.  Its a cute show, I like it. I do very much like the are style too, but the pandemic of rabid fans over it.. I just dont get.  Ill keep watching and maybe my opinion will change (as darknight said, its soppose to pick up)  

My opinion of why its not as funny:  Too random.  at least azu had an overall theam to most of the episodes.  

Like I said, funny and cute yes, made of pure win?  not so much.

I'll give it a chance.  I'm at ep 4 since I'm downloading from WinD fansubs. I decided I like the quality of their translation over others. a.f.k. came in second, but yeah... sleepy likes t3h translator's notes and stuff. ^^

I am watching that, and I am liking it better than Madlax at least. It's more well rounded than the other ones in Bee Train's girls-with-guns thing, and I always enjoy a convoluted plotline (that I can eventually understand to some degree). ^^  THere are more characters in Cazador than Noir or Madlax, so I think I'll be sticking to this series for a while

Started watching something called Juuni kokki. It's REALLY good, action humour everything you want in a anime. Gummster recommends.

But I must disagree about Elfen Lied, I can't see how it messes with your head I thought it to be very understandable. And it does end, you just have to know your things to understand it (plus it's a hint to people to read the manga).

Well in the end we are indeed very different.

But I finally gave my self time to watch Blood the last vampire, after my 'onee-sama' had been nagging me about seeing it for such a long time (she's s a huge Blood+ fan for some strange reasons). But I must say that it truly is a great film. Much better then those crappy series.

I also finally downloaded Rozen Maiden Overture, I'll probably give myself sometime tonight to watch it.

I know what REALLY happened although I don't wanna spoil it for you, but if you rewatch the ending, and if you're smart, you'll probably find out, if not, just read the manga.
To be honest I really liked the ending, why you ask, because it was unpredictable, you don't really get a lot of those anymore.

I just got the english release of rozen maiden, at least disc one anyways


Verdict is still out but the dubbing isnt horrible.. not like it was with negima.. im not trying to claw my own ears out.  Most of the voices match.. but some dont.    To the desu desu freaks.. she speaks normal.   No special way of talking, no nothing.  In the US manga release she replaced the desu with yes "you are a chibi human yes!"  but they dropped that from the anime release. Oh, and on that note, I recognized several voices but cant pin them, but I pinned hers (well i dont know her name, i could look it up tho...)  Its the voice actress that played Mei in Love Hina.    and so far, Im more then happy with Suigintous voice (tho they pronounce her name kinda odd)  its almost a perfect match to her japanese counter part.  The way she laughs, talks, the tone and pitch of the voice.. Its a pretty good match.  Im quite happy about that.

and i got the collectors box (which i was quite irked there was nothing special in it, like a fig or wall scroll or whatever, however it comes in a very nice crushed velvet with gold etched pictures on it.  Its fitting and nice, tho im up in the air wether it was worth the differencce in money.

He can't be watching all those at the same time, that would make ya insane!

But I finally watched Rozen Maiden Overture, I can't say that I cried over it, like some said that they did, but it was a bit moving. And yes it does give a negative image on Shinku.

I was also going to get Kanon, but then my internets failed me, so I'll have to wait for some time.
If anyone has seen it please let me know how it is, as I don't know nothing about it.

Hmm~
According to speedtest.org, Japan has the highest average bandwidth in the world, followed tightly by Sweden (wait, what?) as number two. Iceland's not even in the top ten, for all i know.

You know, I've been watching Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan, and I have to admit. Even though I like it, it goes WAY too quickly. There are just some points where I can't even follow it. Still, I can't help but laugh at some of the crazy, sadistic antics that Dokuro puts poor Sakura through (and yes, Sakura is a guy).

Devil May cry! First episode is pure ownage, I recommend it to all!
Hitohira. Good shoujo, I like it.
Tales of Symphonia, I watched it with onii-sama, I didn't know what was happening half the episode, it started of way to quickly. He was able to understand it though, perhaps because he has played the game.
Kaze no Stigma, it's ok I guess.

Today on YouTube I watched Rozen Maiden ep. 1, and Azumanga Daioh episode 1.

Rozen Maiden seems pretty interesting (not to mention the artwork/animation is great!). I look forward to watching some more eps tomorrow!

Azumanga Daioh is excellent, too. I cracked up a couple of times, (I wanted to slap Sakaki when she reached down to pet the cat...again :P), but YouTube apparently took down a bunch of the episodes :..(

I bring you grains of truth~
I think Sakaki is cute with her love of animals.

Two days ago I stayed up all night and finished Blue Gender, I finished Genshiken last night, and tonight I'm beginning Magic Knight Rayearth. I've also noticed I own a considerable amount of love (not hentai) oriented anime.


I have a question for you all though, what was the thing that got you into anime (Series, Movie. Etc.)? For me, when I was around 7 years old, my mom and dad bought Hiyao Miyazaki's "My Neighbor Totoro." I loved the movie and watched it quite literally 100 times.

I like megu too, and I definitly apricated the ironic nature of the broken girl broken doll relationship...

Did you ever see the manga where suigintou sama was watching the other dolls try to make a cake, and she goes and makes one and takes it to megu.. but when she gets there there is a cheet over megus face and she starts trembling and crying, and then megu pops up shouting something about "youve been tricked!" like those crule tv shows?

that was cute funny

Watching Pokemon Diamond/Pearl. I must say, it's really good. Just not the dub. >_< Canada is still running Pokemon Battle Frontier so I'm watching that too.

The first anime i watched was pokemon that didn't got me hooked on anime though *since i didn't even knew pokemon was an anime back then* then when i was 7 my bro bought the entire DVD set of neon genesis evengelion *i got exposed to ecchi and violence at a tender age neee? :3* and then i was hooked on anime.

I just saw the first three episodes of Haibane Renmei...It's excellent!

Oi...that first episode was kinda (excuse me, very) painful >__< And melancholic...but it ended on a good note and picked up from there!

Just the whole, nobody can leave the town premise, reminds me a little of that M. Night Shyamalan movie The Village XD
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Tsubashi on June 26, 2007, 03:20:59 am
Ah, Haibane Renmei. I loved that series. Used to own it until they got lost in the move... T_T
*Sadness*

Still, if you wouldn't mind, I'd like to hear what you think of the series once you've reached the end. It has a very good storyline, IMHO and lots of symbology! ^-^

As for me? Well, I usually only have time to watch a few episodes a week, but Friend-with-editing-software whom I mentioned in the Word Association Thread worked really hard and gave me edited versions of Mahoromatic (S1 and S2, what ever that means ^^')
So I started watching, and... well... it's a captivating storyline ^^'
Basically I ended up watching seven hours worth in two and one half days, and uncommon occurrence for me. ^-^'

Lots of fun, I liked it a lot (though the editing was noticeable, probably not safe for work ^^') Minawa-chan is sooooooooooo Kawaii!
Typical GAINAX story, focusing on the inevitable romance, with a ending that just feels rushed. Still, all in all, I liked it alot!

Oh indeed. Haibane Renmei is one of my favourite animes, I don't think I've ever been so moved and turned upside/down-inside/out by an anime before.  It's one of those series that stick with you for a long time.  ;171
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Bella on June 26, 2007, 06:54:24 pm
OMG  ;019

Usually I'm not one for marathons, but I had to see how Haibane Renmei turned out!
It ran the gamut of melancholy/uplifting/painful/funny/dark/happy.
There were some light moments where I had to laugh but it wasn't really funny, per se...(I guess it was more like bittersweet).

Excellent...Just bring a few tissues while watching it :..)

I've figured out the episode order to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and I watched to episode #14 (the sixth episode). *Now* it makes sense, heehee.

I really like this show now! When I watched episode #1 a few days back I really didn't have an idea what was going on.

Am I terrible for laughing at Mikuru during some of those...erm...scenes? XD

And one of my favorite characters is Yuki. I like how she's very quiet and unassuming when nothing is going on...and then when it starts to hit the fan, she can figure out the situation.

New season has started, and I can see it's indeed awesome.

What I'll be watching:

-Higurashi no Naku koro ni KAI
-Zero no Tsukaima
-Code Geass 24,25 and Season 2
-Haruhi S2 (it's really confirmed?)
*School Days (rooting for a BAD END)

may watch:

-Gundam 00

Will continue watching:
-Lucky Star
-Romeo x Juliet (only 1 SUBBED episode left
-Heroic Age

May continue watching:
-Nanoha Strikers (until now, It sucks in comparison to A's. Mindless military characters are MINDLESS)

May watch once it's over:
-Gurren Lagann
-Hayate no Gotoku (stopped watching due to lazyness....LOL)



The greatest surprise this season is...School Days. Didn't planned to watch it, but  I just watched the bad ends, read about the main male character, watched the raw of episode 2 and all I can tell is...that bastard deserved his only bad end. I expect a good BAD END on the series too :D . Poor Kotonoha ;_;

currently watching haruhi, english dub.  Not as great as people have said, but ive loled a few times.. kinda regretting getting the limited edition versions of the first two discs.. i cant say i beliver the show is worth 50 bucks even if it is loaded with nick nacks. tho i havent listened to the cds yet, maybe they will be good.

also got the second english dub disc of Rozen Maiden and the first disc of When they Cry (spirited away by ogers, tho in the english dub the replace ogers with demons)  I think the dubbing for rozen maiden turned out well, im not in the least bit disapointed in gin-samas voice, i think they found an appropriate counterpart to her japanese voice.  I cant say the same for When they cry... at least renas voice seems kind of annoying -_-  shes still a cute character tho.

Just got done watching episode 6 of Futago Hime and episode 1 of Lucky Star.

I didn't think I would continue watching Futago Hime because only up to episode 5 is subbed but it's a series I like so much I was willing to watch more without subtitles!

And seeing all the hype that Lucky Star has, I decided to give it a chance and watch the first episode and it's pretty good so far! I especially like Akira and Konata! :D

I also did want to continue with watching Rozen Maiden (going on to episode 7 of Traumend) but I couldn't find what I was looking for :(

It is actually very possible to hear that, but you need to have a very trained ear for that.

I can hear it with low-quality mp3... like 192kbps and below.

but higher than that, if I said I can hear a difference, I'm just pretending that I have a good ear. XD;

Actually, his claims could be correct. If you listen carefully a .wav file and then an MP3, you can hear the difference. I only detected it once, and it seemed like the .wav sound was...more clean. You could hear the difference between each instrument more clearly.

But I never care about that. I just stick to using MP3 on my PC and compress those to Atrac3plus for my MP3 player ( a Sony Gamma)

Word to the wise: There is something to the hype about Lucky Star. Believe me, the best part is LUCKY CHANNEL! The bipolar Akira and flat Sebastien make for quite the Punch and Judy act! She reminds me of Haruko from FLCL...which is a good thing!

Perhaps it's just me, but what little of Lucky Star I've seen never actually interested me. Rozen Maiden, on the other hand, is an absolutely captivating series; utterly enthralling. Very, very few series can beat it, and Lucky Star is definitely not one of them.
I think Captain-san is right on this one!

This depends on how you want your anime, it is both different genres, is it not? And not that I like it better but I am likelier to watch Rozen Maiden instead of LS simply because it has a story, LS is more the sort of anime you watch every now and then.
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: CaptBrenden on July 17, 2007, 11:38:52 pm
very true, it is hard to compair different types of stories.. but ill say this. I feel that, over all, the stories like rozen maiden are better.  They stay with you, they mean something.  As an artist, thats what I want to create someday.  Something, where people who read it will think back on it long after.. something that makes them not onlylaugh, but to cry, or get angry, to feel a full set of human emotions.  Something like that will stay with them long after the show it done.  I feel rozen maiden, and the stories like it, do that, and that is why i belive they are better then the one shot comedys.

Added after 1 hours 14 minutes:

... speaking of epic stories.. just finished fate stay night...


Im going to be depressed for a while now -_- I dislike sad endings, but on the other hand, I so do love them.  That will stay with me for some time.

btw have anyone watched 'The Portrait of Cossette' / 'Le Portrait de Petit Cossette'?
its also a stories about living artwork, where the original painter for the portrait fell in love with his drawing and going mad to kill his own fiance (the model for the portrait)....

Fate/stay night rocks. I played through the visual novel and it amazed me how text and still pictures gave me the same sad feeling at the end.  Heck, I think it was more powerful... that mushroom can write, and mirror-moon can translate. ^^

Quotejust wait till the movies *nod* those will really fry the space between your ears.


Just finished the original 26 eps, the director's cut eps 21-24, and End of Evangelion. I wouldn't say they fried my brain - they actually expanded my ability to think about life, the universe, and everything. I think I got more out of watching the series than I did from a year of Shakespeare and Beowulf! Surprisingly, I got more insight from the original eps 25 and 26 than EoE, but EoE was better. BTW, I haven't seen Evangelion: Death and Rebirth yet. From what I can deduce, most of it is a combination of what was in the director's cut, original series, and EoE. Unless I can find it, I'm not gonna rush to see it, being that I've seen the series and legendary movie.

Quote from: "Wikipedia"On February 17, 2007 Anno released a statement [2] in a form of a movie poster that was shown in 50 cinemas in Japan, providing an explanation for his motivations in pursuing a new take on the franchise and stating a release date for the first film in Japanese theaters September 1, 2007.


It's something I've been waiting for since that statement was released.
I'm also waiting for the live action, although it's definitely going to suck.

Post by: NewYinzer on July 30, 2007, 08:15:37 pm
Mobs of wapanese? More like clumps. Personally, I hope it never sees the light of day. Not because of a western company doing it, but because NGE achieved its 'legend' status because of animation. If you could do it well in live action, I don't think anyone could really accomplish such a task financially. You could either do it cheap with ADV Films and have no one like it, or you could make a blockbuster for 300 million and risk the possibly of it not being a financial failure. Or you could save money by having Robin Williams play Gendoh. That might work.

Bleach: I really like this show! Even if the storyline is kinda slow : /

And is Uryu not one of the cuuuuutest anime boys, EVER? *giggles like schoolgirl*

Fullmetal Alchemist: I wasn't sure if I liked or hated this show at first, but it's grown on me...

Ghost In The Shell: Probably the best show on Adult Swim. I wish they'd show more of this, and less of Inuyasha : \

Finished pumpkin Scissors!! Papapapampukin!

And i just finished rozen maiden s1 once again!

I had this painful feeling in my chest when i reached the last few episode. then something started leaking from my eyes as i watched gin-sama fall and start to crawl, crying out "father"

Rewatching it was more than what i imagined!

And i just recently realized why Gin-sama likes yakult! hahaha

So you have joined our little Rozen Maiden posse, eh? Hehe...

As for me, after finishing Evangelion, I've taken a break from new anime shows. I still have to buy a few shows that came out since I got the fansubs (FMP:TSR and FLCL). Also, I read in a PC World article that the government can now track peer to peer downloads, so I thought that it might be best to discontinue torrenting new anime releases.

Yes, you are saying it well...

This summer in Italy, Cinema distribution firms decided to had "Lupin III Cagliostro" deserve a second passage in Cinemas after 30 years...

Infacts in '70 only a few fans knows of Lupin III, so it was a complete failure in Cinemas here.

So 4 weeks ago I was capable to saw it in a good Multi-Theatre, in all its beauty full screen. ;010   ;010

I really enjoyed the experience.    ;012

Hidamari Sketch - 11 (still waiting on Shintani's subs. Nidas haet crappy anon's mkv subs)
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - 9 (nowhere near as good as the first season imo but still good in it's own right)

Educational anime, right? :D

...
uni blocks P2P (living in campus) and the Internet its dial-up slow during the day. But I managed to find alternate sources for animu, so I can still watch a decent ammount :D

Currently watching:
- Heroic Age (22)
- Gurren Lagann (23)
- School Days (10)
- Sky Girls (7)
- Lucky Star (17?)
- Higurashi S2 (9)
- Zero No Tsukaima S2 (9)

Higurashi no naku koro ni Kai..I agree with Nidas, not as good as first season but still good in its own way. Also, Naraku no Hana kicks ass.
Heroic Age, entertaining and EPIC battles (though, in the last episodes they have been reusing more animation).
Sky girls...kinda good, but could be better. Lucky star, good but haven't been able to watch the latest eps. Zero no Tsukaima is amusing, nothing too epic.

So far, Gurren Lagann is great, although I don't like the FABULOUS uniforms at the end of ep 23...
And School Days has become my favorite anime this season. It doesn't follow the classic harem animu formula, and makes you feel empathy/hate for the characters.

KOTONOHA T___T


P.S: Dropped Nanoha Strikers long time ago, but I plan to start watching it again. Romeo X Juliet Dropped until I can get it from a friend

Post by: NewYinzer on September 07, 2007, 11:08:23 pm
Sorry for the delay. I had to go back to school, so I haven't been around. I just watched the last episode of Code Geass, and I now realize what will happen in the next few episodes in S2:

- Lelouch fires the shot at Suzaku. However, Suzaku does not die, owing to Lelouch's use of the Geass (IE: "Live"). That also prevents Suzaku from firing the shot, knowing that firing will kill them both. Laying on the ground, somewhat dazed but not dead, Kallen sides with him.

- Lelouch leaves to find Nunnaly, V.V. tells him about how stupid his idea of living is, and Lelouch realizes that he in many ways was wrong. A magic fight ensues between C.C. (who is a witch, and cannot die), in which C.C. lives and V.V. dies. Nunnaly agrees with what V.V. said, bringing Lelouch into a sort of Shinji-esque state. Realizing the error of his ways, Lelouch is determined to fix the mess he's created. C.C., Lelouch, and Nunnaly attempt to escape back to Ashford.

- Meanwhile, Kallen and Suzaku have returned to the revolution to find it defeated, and are taken by Britannian forces. However, the Britannian Empire cannot survive for long having killed 100,000 people in a mass genocide, defeat the revolution to avenge it, and hope to save face. QED, they create the Republic of Nippon, a puppet state ruled by Suzaku and Kallen meant to fight Zero and appease the Japanese people. Trust me, Japan will not exit the story this easily.

- Lelouch, betrayed by his friends, his revolution, and everyone he ever knew, runs away with C.C. and Nunnaly from Ashford to another place (see footnote 1). Using the lessons he learned, he comes to grip with his emotions, realizing that by using his strategic skills with a less destructive motivation, he can begin again. Therefore, he has become more like Suzaku, less negative, but still an evil genius.

- Our friend Suzaku, with incredible hatred in his heart over the death of Nunnaly and for Lelouch betraying him, declares that he will destroy Lelouch once and for all. Kallen, who remains his second in command and lover (can you say, tsundere couple? See footnote 2), is loyal to him because she wants revenge on Lelouch for giving up on the revolution. He becomes more like Lelouch, filled with a great hatred in his heart, and is willing to destroy whatever necessary to see the task completed.

- Meanwhile, the story takes another break, with Lelouch mustering his forces elsewhere to fight Britannia. This time, he takes over large regions in a small coup d'etat, bringing people under his control by merit of his rhetoric and strategic skills rather than a huge bloody revolution. We see developments on the Britannian side, with Schneizel and Suzaku becoming peers and allies in this new global hunt for Zero.

- Finally, Suzaku finds Lelouch, and the war starts. We get some great mecha action, with Lelouch facing off against Schneizel (the only person who beat him in chess), Kallen, and Suzaku. After this point, the director will take whatever course suits him. I guess a few new characters are introduced, probably in the form of Lelouch's lackeys, since about every other character is either on the side of the Republic of Nippon or Britannia.

Footnote 1: I speculate that Lelouch has three options for countries to rule that afford him enough resources:
- America (with the largest GDP in the world, I think that it can foot his bills)
- Russia (no country has ever successfully invaded Russia. With vast mineral wealth, no one could stand a chance)
- Chinese Federation (already at war with Britannia, 1.3 Billion people could easily defeat whatever the empire throws at them)

Footnote 2: I found this to be interesting. When I looked at my favorite series, tsundere couples seemed to spring up in every series (Evangelion, Love Hina, Full Metal Panic, Haruhi Suzumiya) except for Code Geass. Then I realized - Kallen hated Suzaku with a passion and tried to kill him, right? Now that she thinks Lelouch betrayed her, she'll side with Suzaku, and they do seem to make a nice couple. I usually stray from these sort of assumptions, but it makes sense.

Let's keep this post to see how wrong I am, right?

I don't think America is LITERALLY Britannia. I've always assumed Code Geass is based on an alternate timeline where Britain puts down the revolution in America. Eventually the British Empire evolves into a pseudo-federalist superstate run by absolute monarchy where each country is run by a prince or princess and their advisers. America, and presumably all of Britain's other former colonies*, are ultimately subsumed into "greater" Britain, which eventually becomes Britannia. That's my take anyway.

As for the Chinese Fed, although Lelouch could go there I find it unlikely that he will. Sino-Japanese relationships have never been particularly good and I can't see China, however abstractly, being painted as the "good guys" in an anime.

On Russia, I've always just assumed that either it is part of an enlarged EU or Britannia has conquered it. Remember that the story implies that "old" forms of electricity, such as fossil fuels, have been made redundant by whatever it is Japan has in abundance, I forget the name. Saku... something? I dunno. Thus Russia's economic edge is lost and Britannia is shown to have a vastly superior military to the rest of the world. Anyway, this new energy source is why Japan became comparatively powerful, why it ultimately led Britannia to war against them and why Russia is now no longer a major player on the world stage. Either way, Russia has little part or no part to play in the greater scheme of things anymore.

*note: I'm assuming white countries only, since the "coloured" countries, such as Japan and the Middle Eastern country (possibly the WHOLE Middle East) we see in one of the eps, are simply called Areas.

---

In entirely unrelated news, I've started watching Sky Girls today. I've seen the OVA before and I'm glad to say that the full anime series is showing epic potential :D

On the Lucky Star front:
How does Konata have the time to keep dying her hair between scenes (http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/1403/vlcsnap961918od9.jpg)? But OH GOD KAGAMI IS HOT (http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/4898/vlcsnap959190ni2.jpg).

And finally, Seirei no Moribito continues to be one of the more interesting and story-driven shounen action animes I've seen. Would definitely recommend, but probably not top 10 material

Again, after rewatching Geass, I realized a few more possibilities:
- India: I remember that that Indian scientist (what's her name?) had mentioned the Indian Army. That means that there could be a separate Indian nation (which makes no sense, because India was a major British colony). India's huge, with a lot of people and resources, as well as an economy geared toward high technology. Zero could possibly use it to defeat Britannia.

OR

- America: This is the more likely possibility. Britannia is governed by nobles, right? So it wouldn't be too hard for him to kill one and take over. This sort of coup happened all the time in the Middle Ages, so it makes sense. Then he could make it into a separate country and use it to fight Britannia.

School days it's over!

And the NICE BOAT actually appeared!
Well....heads were hugged...literally (somewhere around min 22:30)

This has to be the most fu©ked up ending ever. But it was great. The only thing I regret it's that they forced Kotonoha to free her darkest side =/ . But at least she got a "happy" end...in her own fu©ked up way to see things.

School Days 10/10
AWESOME. Best trainwreck/romance/drama animu EVER.

P.S: uh ah...I didn't noticed the forum censored certain words...A worldfilter would nicer.

I recently saw Ghost in the Shell, (the 1997 movie).

I thought it raised many thought-provoking questions...namely, is nudity still nudity, if it's a cyborg who is naked...?

J/K, I thought it was great! I think it's a little less far-fetched than the series....
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Gummster on October 11, 2007, 01:50:50 pm
Ghost in the shell is great indeed! Talking about that did you guys know that there's a new Ghost in the shell film out? I walked past it in HMV ad was quite surprised as I never heard anything about it.

Anyways I just finished Samurai X: Reflection. I'm not going to deny it but I cried at the ending, it's that sad/beautiful/romantic. But I recommend it!

Ghost in the Shell is awesome. Innocence was a little trippy though.

Watched the first episode of Minami-ke, about a family of three sisters living together.  It's a slice-of-life thing.

I was actually sometimes picturing the three of them as OS-tans, maybe NT-tan, ME-tan and 3.1-sama.   Because they fit the descriptions a bit.  Kana (who'd be ME-tan, but somewhat less clumsy) even has a secret admirer, who could be Kyourou-kun.

Well, in the new season I already have 3 series I know I want to follow:

- Clannad: I think they mix the comical and serious/drama elements so well, and the story seems interesting. Also, the OP is awesome!
- ef - a tale of memories: I have no idea how it will go, but the mood caught me. And we have an amazing ED here ^^
- Shakugan no Shana 2nd season: I liked the first series, this seems to be good, too. :D

EDIT: I started one more series:
- Myself, yourself: Not very unique in that genre, but at some reason, I have the mood for this ^^

I haven't even finished watching Jigoku Shoujo, but from what I've seen it's pretty good. ^^
Episodic, but it gets good later supposedly. If you love Kino no Tabi, I think you have a long enough attention span for it. :3




Oh.... Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino aired not too long ago... apparently there's a huge backlash amongst 2ch.  Lots of people are saying its crap. I'm not the type to judge on animation and the 1st episode alone though.  

Note: animation is quite different, with the larger eyes.  ...makes Giuse look way too young. I can get used to the new animation (done by the same people who did Mushishi, and not Madhouse like the first) And apparently there's a different cast too.... haven't heard it, but I'll need to get used to that too....  

Rawr, well, from the trailer shown in Comiket, at least they didn't ignore the attention to detail on the guns.... they don't seem to be as shiny or pretty, imo, but at least it's accurate....


bah. I'll withhold further opinion until I get some good fansubs for it.

I wonder how they are going to get around the ending they did, it kinda deviates from the original manga...
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: SleepyD on January 14, 2008, 09:24:50 pm
ok, after that 1 episode, i can say that one was more or less an "introductory" episode.  I know that a totally new staff and cast were employed for the second season.

Animation looks low quality when directly compared with Madhouse's animation for the first season.  However, over the time I've been watching anime, I've found I really don't judge anime based on animation but more on the plot.  Although, from what I've seen online, this was a major point that was criticized.  

My main gripes are actually with Henrietta and Giuse/Jose/Joze.  They kinda went the "moe" route with henrietta, and it frankly bothers me.  And Jose sounds like he's 20 years old or something.  Hilshire also seems to have gotten younger... Other than that, the other voices don't bother me.  A couple of those voices have probably changed, but they keep the same spirit as the first, so I didn't notice.  

hm.... the first episode overall gave the vibe that it's more of an action thing than a drama.  I still have some hope that when the real plot starts, we'll start getting into heavy stuff, but so far it doesn't look like it.

That's it... Triad is subbing it, and they have quality translations.
I'm sure you know where that is captain, but if you don't want to bother typing the site in, here's the torrent tracker site:
http://a.scarywater.net/triad/

I don't think it'll be as good as the first.  However, I don't think it's as bad as a bunch of people make it out to be.

Post by: CaptBrenden on January 15, 2008, 05:46:01 am
Eh, Ive never watched it in sub, so ill let you know how I view it since i wont be effected by compairisons to the original japanese cast.  But concidering how small the american voice actor pool is, im pretty sure we are likely to get the same crew if they dub it.

I hope the american dub doesn't change it either, despite the drastic changes.  For a cast of mostly young girls, the dub was pretty impressive, particularly since most dubs of young girls tend to grate at my ears.

I think I figured out why it didn't have the same feel as the first.  It's not really the voices or the fact they cut corners with the animation... it's more the mood they set with the colors and the music.  The first season really set up the mood for a great, dramatic anime, with the cool colors and the strings in the music.  

You just don't get it in the second season.
So I don't end up disappoint myself, I'll lower my expectations and treat this as somewhat separate from the first season.


although, a part of me feels that Marvelous Entertainment doesn't have much of a budget.  The first season had a lot of high quality stuff from the music, to the cast, to the animators.  It's hard to live up to that with a staff of people that, frankly, aren't known for superior quality.  Yu Aida is directing, so I hope he ends up wow-ing me with his story somehow....

Gots two new shiny pieces added to my library:

First off, Shigofumi. Anime about a girl who delivers the last message from the newly dead, to the living.
I mean, it's a somewhat insane idea. But still it ends up being totally whack-off awesome - manly tears were shed by the end of the first episode, I swear. It's an awesome take on death, simply. Slightly oversubbed, but the ones I watched from [FTP-A] were quality-proof - get it at your local torrent provider ASAP. -w-

Secondly, Spice and Wolf. Wolf-girl Horo the Wise X merchant Lawrence.
Well, it's pretty slow and pretty smooth, but pretty damn fun as well. The parts where Horo goes ZOMFSOWNAGE on Lawrence without even moving a finger is pretty amusing stuff, too. Subbed by [BSS], with quality - get it at your local torrent provider as usual.

Then again, these are new for the season, and I guess many of you might already be watching them, ne? ^-^

mmm shigofumi~ Absolutely love that anime.

I'm watching from Menclave, a fansubbing group I'm familiar with and a group whose quality I trust.
The artist of Shigofumi is the artist for Kino no Tabi.  And talking inanimate objects are always fun. XD;

So far, Gunslinger Girl is okay.  They're doing the Pinocchio/Triela arc at the moment.  ...All the dudes in Section 2 got way younger voices, jeez.  They're still the same people, just.... younger.  I can see lots of people being turned off by things like this, since the original was just EPIC, but I think I'll stick with GSG-IT-  It's keeping me entertained.

It starts weak, but it seems to be improving with each episode. And this time, Gundams have a reason to be overpowered: magic-like energy generator developed in Jupiter.  Which provides unlimited operation times, more strength, speed and some degree of armor. But this time the "grunt" units actually have a chance against them, provided they have a plan and good pilots.

Just cope with the initial fail. The FCK YEAH GRAHAM! moments are worth it.

Ghost Hound is about Taro, a boy who was kidnapped together with his sister when he was 3 years old. His sister, who was 8, died during the kidnapping, but he survived. Now, 11 years later, we follow Taro as the symptoms of his PTSD increase, decrease and change...into something entirely else.

It's a brilliant Psychological/Horror/Sci-fi series, and wonderfully animated - but the most appealing thing would be the sound.
I was literally hopping in my chair by the end of the third episode. For full effect I recommend you watch it in an unlit room, past midnight, and with headphones. This thing's going to creep you out - in a really good way.

Highly Recommended.

which is why I'm not watching it again at the moment. XD;;

After watching that first scene with henrietta, I stopped cuz then I realized I'd be cursing Marvelous Entertainment while watching for not getting the same people to do the animation/voices for the second season.

I still like the manga though...  

Someone give me tips on how to properly draw guns. I don't think I can do a good gunslinger girl fanart without doing at least a semi-decent job on that.

perspective and research my friend, perspective and research.  Research the weapon first, get as many pictures of it as possible from differnt angles etc.. then draw your characther, rough box where the weapon should be to its approximate size (remember, they are little girls so the guns will be oversized compaired to most examples IE: the FN-P90 is about as wide as my chest, but on henrietta it looked alot bigger)  once you get a rough box laid out, use what ever perspective method you think will work best for you (probobly 2 point)  and draw away!  after that its a matter of coloring or shading it in whatever style you plan to do..

but anyways, back on topic... I just watched Tsukihime again. For some reason I didnt finish it last time.  I got to about the point where ROA apeared and that was it.  Tho having recently picked up the first 4 mangas I already see blaring differences and stuff lefted out of the anime.  The biggest difference is they make no reference to the origin of death points.. spots shiki later sees that the lines originate from and he can destroy or kill things with a single stab with them.. heck in the anime dispite leaving that detail out, its obvious he used one on ROA.

Still dispite other peoples complaining i thing the anime was still pretty good, just horribly abriged

I really enjoy the dark atmosphere DtB has. It has a really nice style, and the action scenes are well-animated.  If you're looking for plot, it's certainly there, but they don't really reveal much in the beginning--kinda like a mystery thing, i guess.  

and given the atmosphere and the name, you can guess that this is an action/drama and not an action/comedy.

True, making a Tsukihime anime requires way more than the 12 or 13 episodes. It wouldn't be enough to satisfy the fans of certain endings.  It had more endings than f/sn did.  And Fate's 3 endings got 26 episodes.  

Most pictures just have the weapon just sitting there.  And yes, they serve their purpose in showing me the visual details.  But I need to find videos of the guns too.  The P90 and a few others I can find easily, but I have ideas that capture the girls in the middle of reloading or with shell casings falling all over the place. heck, my ideas involving guns aren't just limited to the gunslinger girls.... *sigh* now if only I had the time... >_<

I dunno why, it reminds me a *bit* of Blood+, even though the two series are completely different...it must have to do with the animation style or something O___o

And we'll be looking forward to your fanart, SleepyD :)

Post by: CaptBrenden on March 01, 2008, 02:07:48 pm
Well there is a more pricy alternitive... get some good airsoft weapons and have someone pose.. or the alternitive.. get real guns for reference and have someone hold them/pose.

Maybe I could slap togeather a quick tutorial on gun drawing...

But anyhow at the very least, if you havent, go to a range and fire a gun for a bit. Familurize yourself with a gun and how it operates.  Artists often draw from personal knowlage and a little first hand knowlage would do you some good.

Quote from: "Silentbob"Spice and Wolf.
How far are you?  I have yet to convince myself to watch past the first episode.  I'm not saying that I didn't like the first episode...it's just that I'm not sure if I know what the show is going to be like, yet.

So there's Horo, a wolf "god" who has chosen to abandon a people who don't entirely believe in her, anyway.  Do more characters like her pop up or is she just this quirky being in the world of humans?
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Silentbob on April 20, 2008, 06:14:51 pm
I've finished it now.   I kept watching because Horo was a likeable character. The story pretty much seems to revolve around the merchant guy and how he tries to make a profit, sometimes with the help of Horo.  Not really what I expected, so story wise I felt it was a bit dull.   They meet up with some other people along the way, but just "ordinary" people.

I guess because there's too little time to squeeze in the manga it seems too short, hopefully there will be more seasons coming.

QuoteDo more characters like her pop up or is she just this quirky being in the world of humans?

Actually... *hem*
There ARE more ones like her around. It's just that, seeing as this first season (and most likely there WILL be more) is only based on the first novel, they haven't met those yet. It's in the same situation as Haruhi - first season released, got great criticism (albeit not NEAR Haruhi's wave of glory), light-novel based and more novels to be written, and so on.
Wait and see!

Added after 7 hours 36 minutes:

Oh. Also!
NEJIN'S SPRING -08 ANIME SEASON REPORT RAMBLE!

Checked series are:
Blassreiter
Code Geass R2
Druaga no To: The Aegis of Uruk
Kanokon
Kure-nai
Macross Frontier
To Love-RU
YGO 5DS

Now! Starting this stuff off, there are some extreme PAIL OF PHAILs around here. You probably know what I'm talking about - Kanokon (and also, YGO5DS, but you've probably guessed that already) is one overbudgeted piece of yoghurty crap (Whilst YGO5DS is just, well, crappily animated Cyberpunk Motorbiking Card Games - just that says it all, really - with the worst VA's EVER). Kanokon's first episode was YOGHURT AGH BLEED MY EYES OUT!!!, second episode was AGH DAMNIT NOT ANOTHER ONE TO YOGHURT THE PLACE DOWN GWADHDFN OH AT LEAST IT'S DFC BUT STILL AAAGHGHAGHAG!!!, third episode was just, small amount of yoghurt mixed with MEH and crappy DRAMA. Now let's leave that to die before it gets more yoghurty and i need use that spork.
(Also, another noteworthy FAIL was Zettai Karen Children, which made me puke out of sheer worthlessness.)

BLASSREITER was sorta good. Cool animation, stuff, and better job at motorbikes than YGO5DS by dimensions, but it still feels like two big somethings are missing. Those would be An Explanation For All This Shit, and also SUBS FUKKEN WHERE?. Might get better later on, though.

Code Geass R2...well, let's just say I think the timeskip just fucked all the amazing buildup they'd had up until the last episode of S1. Also mechas are now even less logical than before, and The Black Knights don't seem to be worth for anything but scrap warriors anymore. Yay Sunrise. But it's still floating I guess, so there's time to salvage it. I fucking HATE HATE HATE Suzaku now, though. Bitch kissing the emperor's ass all the damn time. Haet. HAET. ಠ_ಠ

Druaga no To: the Aegis of Uruk (seriously, whoever came up with that sucky and overly long name needs to be SHOT) is sorta good. Also OP is kinda cool, heh. I still don't grip the damn thing, but I guess that'll come eventually. The RPG setting is a good setup this time, unlike the .hack series which I found just purely enervating, and also the fact that the main character doesn't achieve INSTANT SUPAR POWARS (rather he's sorta n00bish) makes me have some faith in this thing. 's cool. Still lacks some of those very cool battle sequences as of yet, but otherwise 's cool.

Kure-nai...well, yeah. It's good. Really good. It's an odd style, with a really...civilly normal, hasty print on it, which really gives off the feel of daily conversation and not script-reading - to boot, there's enough WTF? to heighten your eyebrow, but not to make you unable to understand. It's really funny to see how Shinkurou handles every odd situation the little girl comes up with, and how she's totally incapable of understanding social conduct rules and so on. This is a must-see for the season.

Macross Frontier - HOLY SHIT, AND I THOUGHT NOBODY MADE MECHA SERIES EXCEPT SUNRISE ANYMORE (and Gainax but they don't count since they're just batshit crazy). Now I know what this is supposed to be like. Maybe. I haven't seen any previous Macross, so maybe that'd be a good call just to see what the hell is actually going on - but it's a really nice tour the first 3 eps give you. CGIs are just amazingly done, and well blended with the normal animation - also I'm still marveling to no end at that amazing OP. Love it. LOVE IT. Also I feel sympathy for "Princess" Altoh-kun - Ranka's "You were so pretty, i thought it was a naked girl changing" is just SUCH an amazing line to that poor guy. Princess, indeed. Also I might just have found my cosplay now. -w-

Finally, To Love-RU - at first glance this alien-girlfriend-from-outer-space-and-instant-mistaken-proposal plot seems to be yet another Kanokon but with aliens instead, but that's where you're mistaken. To Love-RU is ways better, wielding a really amusing male lead who's got some serious GAR in him - but is a total loser when it comes to women. Trying to confess to his (human) love only to be interrupted by a falling spaceship wreckage (which nobody even cares about, by the way) is just, LIFE SUCKS BIG TIME to the max, and this show makes it hilarious. I can't wait for ep3 to be subbed.

Now, have you been listening properly? In that case, ALL SQUADRONS AWAY! TO THE TRACKERS! DL DL DL DL!!! ORYAAAA!!!

Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Bella on July 24, 2008, 02:10:55 pm
What have I been watching lately...? Mostly whatever stuff is playing on DirectTV :P

Bleach: oh lawd...I'm starting to think Bleach will outlast us all. I mean really, I'm up to ep. 70, and all my favorite anime have ended in 12, 13 episodes, tops. Still a fairly interesting watch, of course. It keeps my attention. Though...damn you writers for making Uryu have no powers now!!! :V [angry fangirl\]

Deat Note: I can't get into this one too much. Meh. I'm afraid it's just not my cup of tea....

Speed Grapher: Debauched, degenerate, graphic...the storyline is like Blood + meets Lolita, with half the plot of either. Yet I still tune in, oddly. Hey, it's the most photography-centric anime I've seen. Though honestly, I'm starting to develope a dislike of GONZO, I've never really seen a GONZO show I like...not unlike Nejin's famous Gainax rage XD

Shin Chan: O. M. G. This is like Bevis and Butthead with preschoolers or something. The animation is sub-sub-sub-par, but the writing is sharp and hillarious...in a very sick kinda way ;)

Code Geass: FINALLY, a show in this list I can say I really like. I'm not a huge mecha fan, but I appreciate excellent writing, plots, and animation. This is the first show I've seen with CLAMP-designed characters, as well...this gets two huge thumbs up from me :D

And some movies/miniseries:

Macross Plus: really great! I really enjoyed this...series? Some of the aeriel scenes were beautifully choriograhped, the soundtrack was excellent; I recomend this one for those who haven't seen it.

Street Fighter the Movie: Meh. It was on the SciFi channel and I started watching it. Too many insanely muscular streetfighters IMHO. XD

Blackjack: Again, another one on the SciFi channel. The animation style was pretty unusual, I think; but the story was fairly interesting (the first anime I've seen with a medical drama storyline), save a few plotholes here and there. :P

Next up in my queue: Gurren Lagann!

I saw first episode of it just last week... Gurren Lagann deserves!  ;010

Also I am watching again Dragon Ball (I think it is Dragon Ball Z) on italian broadcast, together with One Piece that I dislikes, and so I see it with no particular interest...

Also I see sometimes Nana and "The Boondocks" on MTV.

MTV it is also airing FMP Fumoffu, but I am loosing all episodes..  ;014

I'm following Code Geass R2, it's finally good again after episode 15 that is.
I'm also watching To-LOVE-ru. Nothing to say about that one except, fanservice. I don't know why I keep watching it.
Also Koihime Musou, just for the hilarious idea of gender-bender Romance of the three kingdoms. I seriously laughed my ass off when I saw Zhang Fei, or should I say 'Ling Ling'.

Last one was... Lost Universe ('98 ). One great anime for sure. And only after I finished it I realized: "Wait a minute... How come Canal is Me-tan?".

Actually, lately I'm mostly watching various Gundams, interrupting them with LU, Transformers: Masterforce and occasionally rewatching Trigun episodes :)

Post by: JA8956 / Patrick on July 28, 2008, 03:31:34 pm
I know lost universe too, a really nice anime, bit I guess its just confidence that canal looks the same as ME-tan.

lol, i think you have waaay too much time on your hands to be following that many series.

Or it might be me just being jealous that you DO have that much time on your hands. lol  
I'm only following Index, Gundam 00, and ToA.  Although I am seriously considering picking up Toradora from the things I'm hearing.

[break rules]Ah, haven't been here long either.  ;)

I don't have time either, but I do have an EeePC.  Properly adjusted, it makes the most versatile video player ever -- larger than a handheld so you don't have to go blind, but smaller and lighter than a regular laptop so it can be placed in every nook, cranny and orifice imaginable.  To be able to watch Anime during breakfast, lunch, dinner, commutes, wii fit, miscellaneous breaks and in cases of insomnia is... kinda cool.  

Currently wrapping up Clannad (GO TOMOYO!!!!!  *drools*), expecting to watch Clannad the Movie, and about to start migrating to Clannad: After Story.

Other series that my EeePC ripped to shreds recently:

Gurren Lagann
Toshokan Sensou
Ichigo 100%
Zettai Karen Children
Kyouran Kazoku Nikki
Pani Poni Dash
Koihime Musou
Wagaya no Oinari-sama
Birdy Decode
Macross Frontier
Kanon 2006
Tsubasa Chronicles
Kodomo no Jikan
Mahoromatic
Mahoromatic Something More Beautiful
Penguin Musume Heart
Venus vs Virus
Girls Bravo
Angelic Layer
Shakugan no Shana II
Asatte no Houkou
Otome wa Boku
Negima!?
Magister Negi Magi
Full Metal Panic Fumoffu
Ergo Proxy
Lovely Complex [YAY!!!!!!]

...and a lot more stuff before I started getting serious about eliminating my backlog.

The pace is good -- I might just make it after all.  :D

Well, if "recently" stuff is allowed, then my list'd be quite a damn bit longer, but that's just my current stuff, mostly of what is airing currently. Bamboo and Macross F are the only ones I take after they've finished; everything else I'm all up-to-date with.

I can hardly remember all the stuff I've recently finished off with DELTA's supreme power...It usually goes into the temp folder, into the winamp and into the waste bin in one go. ^^

Dear lawd, Nejin-san and C-Chan, those are some lists! All I've watched recently (past week) was Serial Experiments Lain and I was planning on watching Howl's Moving Castle.

Serial Experiments Lain= massive mindfsckage. In a good way @.@

And I cannot, for the life of me, believe that anybody anywhere is still watching Bleach. It got drawn out by the 10th episode IMHO.

Yay! I've recently been re-watching Lost on cable, and the second season (featuring the Apple ][ and SAGE of death) has just started.

QuoteAwesome! Now you'll know where 1/4 of Unix-sama's inspiration came from. ^v^


...And if you watch Lost, you'll be able to see why I've drawn some Unix-sama/Ben Linus parallels. Sometimes the most dangerous people are the least dangerous looking ^^

QuoteTold you. ^^


Still trying to figure out WTF was up with the alien. And Lain's sister. O.o

BTW, did you catch all the Mac/BeOS references throughout the series? At the end of most episodes it said "to Be continued" (in red and blue, the BeOS logo), they mentioned "Think different" and their computers were running "Copland OS" (Copland, of course, being a rejected Apple OS).

Well...Birdy Decode and Toradora are pretty good, recent series. Macross F is being released off Blu-Ray rips recently, too, so that might be worth looking into. Not as new, but the DMC series were good too (although maybe a bit in the wrong direction). This season, Index is a good mix of serious and fun, with a mixture of supernaturality into the whole; Whilst Hyakko is pure, undiluted, undisputed, unCHALLENGED comedy #1. Except for episode 1. It sucks. Well, maybe not THAT much, but if you skim that, and go to episode 2 and 3 and 4, you'll be just fine.

Damn, I've been listening to too much rhythmic baselines at 80 dB tonight...every damn sentence I type sounds in my head like a rap line. OSHI-.

Zero no Tsukaima!! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_no_tsukaima)

i love this anime...!! Soooo much!!

Have you watch that Captain?
Considering your taste, you will love this anime! I'm sure of it!

The heroine can be categorized to...
Uhmm.... loli...

And she is a litle ferocious and violence... and tend to enslave the main character.

And there is also a maid and a princess! Really cute!

This is an old anime, but it's interesting enough to watch.
I've read the manga and the novel too, i found that the novel is the most interesting.

(http://www.tampabayanime.org/uploaded_images/bamboo-717483.jpg)

I like this sort of anime! Easy storyline, no hard conflicts, kawaii characters, has "never give up" moral message, kamenrider, etc.

i feel refreshed and ready to face any problem after i watch this!

I actually took a break from anime to watch a documentary about the worlds first big nuclear accident...

NGE....!

I've watched that....!
I like Asuka Langley! She's feisty, i like this type of character....!

And i hate Ikari Shinji! He's so stupid jerk! Doing something like choking on injured Asuka(ending)!

This is the first time and the last time that i hate the main character of an anime! The one who supposed to be hate is antagonist right?

The story is sooooo confusing..... you have to watch it several times until you understand the whole storyline, especially the ending(ova).....! Ugh....!

But overall, i like it!

I couldn't get into Code Geass...  Uggh.  The crazy plot.  I didn't like the character designs or story too much.  :(

Clannad's pretty cool.  Recommend you watch the first season, and then Clannad After Story (it's nearly finished - episode 19 of 24's out so far) before watching the Clannad movie.

Otherwise the plot for the second season is wrecked up a little.

I am getting the feeling that most (or a lot of) VNs are hentai or ecchi...
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: NejinOniwa on March 11, 2009, 04:20:01 pm
SRS MODE NEJIN ACTIok, we're go.

First, 7 dimensions isn't near neither my (nor would I suppose one of Nagato's caliber's) limit of coherence or processing capability. It does get somewhat confusing being unable to operate on preset parameters, but as long as you can take the five-times-worse-than-hangover headache and feeling of general displacement you get afterwards, it's ok. (I've done up to 10 dimensions before so yeah)

Secondly, don't stamp people at random. (I'm like a TF2 spy when it comes to stealth. "Hide in plain sight" is like my middle name.)

Thirdly if you didn't quite get it yet, I dislike it because 1: It's KEY, which makes it crap by default, 2: It's got crap story, somewhat good characters but a total waste of using them, 3: Its only redeeming qualities are the supporting characters, AND LASTLY 4 IT'S MADE BY KYO-ANI, AND ARE THUS EFFECTIVELY PREVENTING THE OUTPUT OF SOMETHING OF ACTUAL QUALITY LIKE MOAR HARUHI OR FULLMETAL PANIC, SERIOUSLY, SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE SHOT FOR THE ENTIRE DAMN CLANNAD AFTER STORY PRODUCTION, IT SHOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED. GHAH.


Seriose mode nejin overloaded. Core unit failure. Reverting to standard mode.

And lastly VN's are all crap, for that very reason. If you can't make things sell without putting sex in them, go home already, stupid telemarketer.

Yup! That's what you find in Europe, almost all licensed VN in europe is eroge, but not like that in the origin country....

In other words...to much hyped anime actually push you off? Well at least I do have some tendency like that. In my place, Naruto is the most hyped anime right now. And I'm not fond at watching Naruto.
But without hype, that means that anime is not known very well (like caras). But SOMETIMES, that not known very well actually very good. They just have problem because overshadowed by something much better known.

I too had the chance to see Gurren Lagann...

I saw it via Internet TV and I can say it is a good piece of Anime...  ;019  ;019  ;019

(Internet allows any person worldwide to see tv serials even if these are still not aired in your national TV broadcasts...  :smoke:

Internet is a great invention indeed...  ;012 )

Also I saw Princess Tutu, Tweeny Witches and the few episodes of Magister Negi Magi aired on italian televisions...

Negi Magi suddenly disappear from broadcasts...

I think it was blocked by Italian Movement of Stupid and Bigot Parents (The infamous M.O.I.G.E.) because it contains some spare innocent and hilarious nudity...  ;020  ;011

Sometimes I spotted Yu-Gi-Oh aired on televisions here but I considered it a totally crappy commercial anime showing no any new ideas or interesting plot...

Watching Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino. (on and off over the semester)
zomgSubs suck. (Triad's was awesome, but they stopped at ep 7) Watch it from Funimation streams. (Never thought I'd say that)

It isn't THAT bad really.... Just don't watch the 1st season right before.  Your high expectations for an amazing second season will be dashed, stabbed, shot, and thrown into the sewers.  

Episode 8...... That ending song got me.

Also watching Strike Witches.  Interesting series.........  Kinda weird when I think of the WWII aces they're based off of...... Makes my brain hurt.

Plan on watching K-ON (and a whole bunch of older series) after my last final.

Anyone here still interested in anime? Uhh...

I don't watch a lot of anime anymore because there's very little of it on TV where I live (mainly just "Bleach", "Code Geass" and some other things on Adult Swim. Good shows but they're only on like once a week :( ) and I'm usually too busy to watch any episodes online but the anime and manga series "Axis Powers Hetalia" caught my attention a few days ago and I became an instant fangirl! :D

I also like YuGiOh 5Ds! When I first heard of it and its premise, I thought it would be the most preposterous YuGiOh series yet-- dueling on motorbikes!-- I thought the series was jumping the shark but when I watched it for the first time I was impressed by this dystopian and edgier YuGiOh and the whole dueling on motorbikes thing is actually pretty cool! :D

i SHOULD go upstairs and watch something animated.

oh, and a few weeks ago i watched Honey and Clover. (i had already read the manga a bit, so it was nice to actally see it from the start, in an anime.) i could only see the 1st episode (the only one that's free) but it was quite good. superb, really. ^^

oh, and they were offering another favorite of mine (COMPLETELY FREE ^^) xXxholic, so i watched the 2 episodes they had. KICKASS. i loved it, almost as much as the manga. ^^ (they had to edit a scene in which a lady originally died, and added an ambulance. and i think there was a scene that wasn't in the book...) it was really good. i reccomend picking up the manga first, and if you like it, go after the anime.
i especially like the opening theme, "19sai".

I'm returning to my roots.
The first anime I watched as an anime, and the first manga I read as a manga.
What really started things.
Ice and Snow,
the Second Hand of Time.
(http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g239/NejinOniwa/DNAngel/DNAngelFreedert.jpg)

I cried today.
I was thinking.
And then I said,
I can cry.
Nei, possibly.
Chip, not likely.
Neana, probably.
But we can't cry for ourselves.
Because we cry for the world.

I turned on the music, and cried.
When the notes were over, I wiped my face
but in the music, I cried.
I cried, and tears came.
Blood came.
It dripped on my hands, smeared over my face and my floor
None came on my clothes.

I cried.
Not for myself, not for my reasons.
If I have any, it might be the dead
but I thought of them, and didn't cry.
I thought of the world
and cried.
Demon tears and demon blood.

The core is still the same, no matter how far we stray.
Not blood, nor lust.
Love - and sorrow - for what never were meant
to have.

Added after 47 minutes:

I'm such a depressing poet, really.

Added after 10 minutes:

I did cry, though.
And my nose still bleeds haphazardly, and it's been like that since yesterday.
Might want to check that up. <_<

you ARE becoming emo....and a hemophiliac.

*glomp*
i've always wanted to watch DNangel. any good? ^^
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: NejinOniwa on October 06, 2009, 10:39:48 pm
I was always a hemophiliac.
It just happened so that I started crying for no apparent reason, and my nose started bleeding as well so I WAS crying and bleeding at the same time, and it seemed quite like crying blood. Yeah. Spent an hour cleaning up the floor after that.

But well, the DNAngel anime is quite good, but not a masterpiece - I thought it so when I watched it, and the animation and plotlines etc are quite good - and most filler is quite watchable as well - even though it doesn't quite follow the mango.
HOWEVER
The VA's aren't exactly top notch...
...and no matter what, if you DL a dual-audio release, turn off the english audio track immediately before it makes your ears puke. It rings so much of 4KIDS DID IT that...man, i dunno.

But yeah, it's quite good.

Added after 1 minutes:

Especially the later arcs, and the ones that it has in common with the manga. The manga is masterful, btw...if it weren't for the fact that YukiSugi takes half-decade-long hiatuses all the damn time. -.-

I watch Kämpfer despite good reasons not to, just to see whether or not it leads somewhere good. It might still, there are some elements of INTEREST that shove up there.

Queen's Blade...tits, tits, tits, tits, oh there's a tentacle wrung around tits, more tits, flat chest, tits, tits, someone gets killed, have some more tits while your at it, and finally TITS.
No thanks, that kind of monotony bores me heavily. ´-`

I was just joking fun about Queen's Blade, its one of those anime that is going to attract attention no matter what. Kampfer I do find interesting but who knows where its going to go. I like Nyan Koi!, Asura Cryin', and White Album and Needless all VERY VERY different types of anime though some of my favorites will always be Idol Project, Iczer 1, DragonHalf, Nurse Angel Rirka, and Space Battle ship Yamato which has a BRAND NEW movie coming out NEXT MONTH!!!!

Old, yes I know.  It's a box set I picked up a couple of years ago at a Best Buy sale.  I finally discovered there's nothing on TV, even satellite, so I decided there was no better time to give this one a try.  Not quite half-way through it yet, but I'm really digging it so far, so yeah... good series.

Currently I am watching:

Gintama-absolutely hilarious.  My only regret is I've already caught up with the series so I have to wait a week for new episodes.

Fairy Tale-giving it a try, hasn't been all that interesting as of yet

Book of Bantorra-Very interesting Anime, I've enjoyed it thus far.

The Sacred Blacksmith-Has looked okay thus far...though a bit too heavy on the unnecessary fan service and the storyline thus far hasn't made up for it.

Letter Bee-Main character cry's WAY too much...I mean, he'll cry for next to no reasonable reason at all.  Other then that, the anime looks surprisingly good for one that I ignored initially (looked a little too kiddyish for my tastes).

Kämpfer-Never was one for cross gender anime, but this one has a fairly good storyline, so I'm keeping up with it for now.  It's remained enjoyable thus far...though again a bit of unnecessary fan service.

Vampire Princess Miyu-Very interesting anime, I like the look of this one, and fortunately it's been long done, so I don't have to wait a week for the next episode.

I've done something similar to that...not with Bleach though.  I watched the entire Fushigi Yuugi series in one day.  Naturally, I had work a few hours after finishing the series...

Funny thing is, I did this with the series that really got me seriously into anime (Neon Genesis Evangelion)...I was SUPPOSED to be working on some english essay though...

@Choco: Avatar's a good show... not anime though (though heavily anime-inspired).

@ stewart: ROD movie or TV?  I've got the movie... it's pretty good.  I liked all the literary and historical stuff - really cool.

I've been watching Outlaw Star recently and just about finished - I like it.  I'm looking forward to seeing what shows [adult swim] picked up for this year.  They hinted at three, so I'm assuming InuYasha: Final Act (probably won't watch) and FMA: Brotherhood (will definitely watch considering how long I've put off seeing it online) are two of them, but I'm hoping they picked up something interesting and new.  Why the hell hasn't Index been licensed?
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: stewartsage on January 18, 2010, 09:21:08 pm
The movie, I too really enjoyed it; but watching it at 4:00 AM was probably not the best choice.  Also, it should be said that Yomiko Readman is now one of my favorite protagonists of all time.  Otto Lillienthal, jean Henri Fabre, and Stephen Wilcox as anime villains = win.

As I said Choco, Avatar isn't bad, in fact, I like it a lot.  It's the one American show that uses that anime-inspired look that really gets it.  It's a show by anime fans that actually knows how to incorporate the elements that make anime (and any other fiction) great.  Still, not anime.  I would put it in the same class of western animation as a show like Batman: TAS or Gargoyles, both of which were also great shows.

On topic, I just finished The Familiar of Zero (all seasons + OVA), now I'm angry.  I don't think an anime has ever left me so disappointed or angry.  I mean, I know the idea was to leave the door open for a fourth season, but seeing how it has been just over a year since the OVA and even longer since the completion of the third season with no announcement, I'm not particularly hopeful.  Of all times, the series had to stop on such a disappointing third season.  I would just as soon pretend that neither Princesse no Rondo nor Princesses no Rondo even exists. I just want to point my finger at Shakugan no Shana for holding up J.C. Staff's progress ><.  Gah, so frustrated...

Meh, doesn't bother me.  The only character that's really ridiculous is Tiffania, but I've still seen worse and it worked for this series.  Can't have a great pettanko without characters that make her complex apparent.

I'm sure my opinion still sounds fairly negative, but I actually did enjoy this series.  If there were any indication they intended to finish it, I would be incredibly enthusiastic.

Well, it really depends.  While not as frustrating as a completely unresolved plot, a plot that is wrapped up a little too neatly can be frustrating as well (generally due to some lack of creativity).  It's okay, encouraged even, to leave some questions unanswered, it spurs continued interest and repeat viewings of an enjoyable series, but to leave too much unanswered can simply cause frustration and confusion and mar an otherwise satisfying experience.

Of course, Princesse no Rondo's conclusion was obviously not meant to be the end of the series, but given the lack of information on the future of the series, one couldn't tell -_-;.

I don't like when a series has an inconclusive ending. Some time ago, I was watching the Naru Taru anime, I watched 10 out of the 13 episodes and quit there, after finding out the ending isn't very well-done. :-/

I'm also disappointed that there's no third season of Rozen Maiden. It's a pretty good series, but the Alice Game storyline didn't get very far and didn't have a conclusion.

Pumpkin Scissors is an odd name for a war story. O.o

Currently in Rewatch of the most RAGE-inducing-yet-enjoyable animu of the recent times: Sasameki Koto ~YURI IS FINE BUT ONLY IF YOU GET OFF YOUR ASS AND CONFESS TO HER YOU USELESS PIECE OF~

That said, merely the firstest track played in the first episode contains enough WINNAGE to build half of Olympus Mons. -w-

EDIT: FINDING A GOOD SEED IS A RECTAL ACHE, THOUGH

EDIT AGAIN: Also, BRâ˜...S is up soon, trailer is available on torrent (http://www.anirena.com/viewtracker.php?action=download&id=35278). GET IT AND REJOICE CUZ IT'S NOT FAR OFF ^V^

Have you ever looked into fansubs, by any chance? That's how I'm watching K-On. (Albeit, rather slowly)

*wikis Murder Princess*
Only 6 episodes? That sounds like my kinda show. (I have uber-ADHD when it comes to finishing series.) >.>

So yeah... I finished PPD a little while back. That has to be one of the best comedy anime I've ever seen~! :V I'm also continuing with Ergo Proxy (it gets better as it goes along) and rewatching Gurren Laggan. Damn, I nearly forgot how AWESOME that last one is. ;v;

Sasemeki Koto is cute and all, but I will agree it is RAGE inducing. CAN YOU NOT SEE JUST HOW IN LOVE YOU ARE, DAMMIT? >O<;

Wow, Acher-- episode 140? You must have a lot of patience, I usually can't stand anime over 20-some episodes (Fullmetal Alchemist would be a rare exception to above rule).

I don't think Avatar's an anime... not to demean it, but anime by definition if Japanese-produced animation. I'd call it anime-like, since it's stylistically similar to anime but a western work (just like The Boondocks).

I've finished CLANNAD vol.1,2, and After Story.
Such a heartbreaking moment was when Nagisa died, brought back alot of memory's from my life because of the sadness.

If you don't mind I'd like to post my childhood story from a confortation I had with a close friend.


[UU]Kraus: I'm glad we got together like that

[UU]Kraus: I needed that...

[UU] Sharp: You're glad we got together at Dan's?

[UU]Kraus: No I mean, when I finished that series like that it made me think about my life

[UU]Kraus: How my childhood with interacting with other people was horrible...

[UU]Kraus: How for a portion of my life, I was either a tool of "friends" or just had no friends at all....

[UU]Kraus: Brought back alot of memorys of sadness

[UU] Sharp: Dude...

[UU] Sharp: That's deep...

[UU]Kraus: eh, thanks. You, Jon, and Dan were the first people to ever not
take advatage of me in a way or just disregard me as no one

[UU] Sharp: I respect you.

[UU] Sharp: First person I ever honestly respected was Jon.

[UU] Sharp: Then you.

[UU]Kraus: Thanks, not many people show any kind of respect towards me even though I go through a life that can be modeled as spoiled at points in time. The only person whom respected me even though I was younger then them was Bef, thats why I look up to him alot. He ran relay for life for my mom which is something I can deeply respect and am honored by.

[UU] Sharp: Nice.

[UU]Kraus: eh, life is such a bitch to me. I've herd people say stuff about me, saying that I should just go live is England if I am so proud of being English. People haven't ever respected my heritage and have just used it to bully or haras me. I used to get in alot of fights because I'll let people talk shit about me, but if they say that my family is crap they better be ready to fight me.

[UU] Sharp: That what happened with Kevin Sweet?

[UU]Kraus: Do you remember when I fought him in 6th grade? He walked up to me and said that my family is poor and never got an education. I beat him down for that, the entire football team backed me up and kept him from throwing any punches at me and let me leave without a scratch.

[UU] Sharp: In 6th grade?

[UU] Sharp: I don't remember that.

[UU]Kraus: I don't think me met at that time, it was the talk of the school for a while though

[UU] Sharp: Well, you were in my homeroom in 6th grade, but the extent of our conversation was talking about video games.

[UU]Kraus: People still remember me beating the shit out of him in 5th though, I punched 3 of his teeth out and chipped another.

[UU] Sharp: 3?!

[UU] Sharp: I heard you just knocked one out.

[UU]Kraus: 2 molars and a canine I think along with a chipped molar

[UU] Sharp: Wow.

[UU]Kraus: It was one huge as swing that I took though, some of the molars were adult so no new ones, had to get them implanted

[UU] Sharp: Damn...

[UU] Sharp: I'm sure you got suspended though, huh?

[UU]Kraus: The principal was on my side in all this, no suspenchion just she took me out of class for a few days to let me re-adjust. Keven had bullyed me for around three years untill that day, he also took my best friends away from me. the pollok twins.

[UU] Sharp: I see.

[UU]Kraus: I was pissed off every day and wouldn't even do my work with other people around. for about all my pethetic childhood in school I wasn't enjoying myself or making friends. I would go to the back room where we would put our coats and cry alot of the time, I would refuse to come out most of the class and had to be placed in the front of the room at all times because I would sneek in when nobody looked.

[UU] Sharp: Well, I'm glad that me, Dan, Jon, Snow, Yobbs, and Geoff came around.

[UU] Sharp: Sounds like you were almost clinically depressed.

[UU]Kraus: I would hide it alot, I still do sometimes when I get reminded
but this is the first time in around 3 years since I've felt this bad.

[UU] Sharp: Wow, that show really hit home for you...

[UU]Kraus: Yea man, I respect that show alot now because it just shows that life can be really bad but you have to be positive...

[UU] Sharp: Just remember this: All that's in the past now.

[UU] Sharp: You got friends now that want you around, not because you're easily used, but because you're fun to be around.

[UU]Kraus: yea, I'm just hoping TRP will snap me back into place again or Kennywood or something.

[UU] Sharp: Oh yea, I forgot we're planning on Kennywood day next week.

[UU] Sharp: Just remember, you ever need a pick-me-up, my house is always open.

[UU] Sharp: Just give me a bit of a heads up.

[UU]Kraus: ok thanks man

[UU] Sharp: No problem.

[UU] Sharp: Just forget about it.

[UU] Sharp: It's in the past.

[UU]Kraus: Yea, thanks man. You and everyone else are the best friends a could like me could have. I'm truly blessed.

Thanks for reading all this, I'm sure not many care that much.

Hmm, I've been considering Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei... I've heard excellent things about the series, and it looks like something I'd like.

Currently 17 episodes in to Pumpkin Scissors, decided to watch it on a whim after hearing it compared to Fullmetal Alchemist in a review. (Then again, every alternate-reality, World War I-era European military-that's-chock-full-of-dark-secrets anime is compared to FMA, it practically invented the genre!)  I've heard that the ending isn't particularly... good... or even ending-like, but I like the characters and there's enough conspiratorial intrigue to hold my interest, so yeah. The title is infuriating though, like seriously.

Speaking of FMA, can anyone tell me wth is going on with Brotherhood? I've only seen a few episodes, but it looks like they changed it and now it's worse. D,:

Also considering Sora No Woto once again, after TV Tropes compared it to Haibane Renmei meets Aria meets K-On meet All Quiet on the Western Front, which sounds like a damn interesting combination.

Annnnnd, Angel Beats and Eve no Jikan are on my to-watch list.

Oooh! I've wanted to see Pumpkin Scissors since I read the TV Tropes page on it! The main characters seem really cool! :)

I've seen Brotherhood (or what's aired so far) and I like it, and think it's an improved re-telling of the original.

I'm currently watching Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha.

Remember when I raved about it Bella?  Yes, oh god yes I love Pumpkin Scissors so much it has to be seen to be believed.  I litteraly break into a cheesy grin thinking about it.  Well, it's not the series end, the manga continues on while the anime just kinda stops... which makes me want to invade Japan for a second season or an English translation of the manga.

No idea, I watched random episodes late at night with my ex trying to explain to me what was happening.  Afraid I never got into FMA.

Sora No Woto is on my list too.

Yeah, I could probably take it or leave it if the characters were mediocre, but they're really rather awesome. And good characters are like 70% of any work of fiction for me. ^^

But HOW could the original be improved upon?! It was excellent already. >.>

I remember trying to get into that Way Back When, dunno what happened but I only got a few episodes in.

How could I forget? I have a few series that are like that (Ergo Proxy + Cowboy Bebop + Gurren Laggan gwehehe!), but more make me want to sob thinking back on them. :< That's comforting to know, most anime that are adapted from ongoing manga have less than... ending-like.... endings, so that's more of a general problem. <<

FMA's a difficult one, not so much the storyline but the sheer SIZE. (Seriously, 50 episodes in S1 and 64 in S2?! They're going the wrong way!)

Yey~ That graphic's made of lulz. xD

Finally finished Pumpkin Scissors. I thoroughly enjoyed it, even if that last story arc was painfully drawn out (really, 5 episodes? It seems like that could have been resolved in two, three tops).

Anyone have any experience with Black Lagoon? It looks pretty interesting (and vaguely Cowboy Bebop-esque), but then again it also looks like it might be a 24-episode shoot-and-explosion-fest too. D:

Um... you could always buy or rent DVDs or watch on Hulu or Funimation.com or download from non-torrent sites (the fansub site I use has torrent and regular downloads, I usually opt for the second route since torrenting is another thing I'm paranoid about).

So there's a lot of other legal and not-so-legal options out there. :\

Post by: NejinOniwa on July 25, 2010, 11:31:16 pm
I wouldn't say that. The material is pretty impressive, but I think they're doing a bit too much of a CENCO approach...and with the abstract setting it all is, no narration or explanation whatsoever might be somewhat of a bad move.

Regardless; it was some seriously cool shit.

I have to agree with the people who say the Black Rock Shooter OVA lacks a bit, plot-wise. While I can understand they had to build up the story in both ways, but the way it was executed with the erratic switches and the lack of balance between the two timelines (not to mention the anticlimatic ending) made this anime less than spectacular, I believe.

Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Dr. Kraus on October 04, 2010, 10:42:41 pm
I think season 3 would be in the area of central and east Europe (Germany, Austria, Poland, Russia, Scandnavia) or Asia (China) (Not Japan AKA Fuso because they arn't in any danger aparently....)

Finished off stick witches 2 yesterday, THIS ENDING WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, SEASON 3 BETTER BE IN THE WORKS OR ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE PISSED.

Not sure what else to watch right now, any suggestions?
Title: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: stewartsage on October 05, 2010, 01:18:51 am
CBI is China-Burma-India Doc, one of the most under equipped and undermanned but vital fronts.

Personally I'd also like to see an OVA maybe set during the fall of Karsland, or the battle over the Fuso Sea at the beginning of the war before a third season comes out (something tells me we might get Africa?).  Alaska is highly improbable, I know, but that doesn't stop a guy from hoping for obscure theatre love.  Hell, an OVA set during the Korean conflict would be awesome; either Neuroi vs. Humans or Humans vs. Humans as the world looses collusion with no Neuroi to fight.

I KNOW RIGHT?  I FOR ONE AM DISSATISFIED WITH THIS CONCLUSION.

No idea, I'm not really watching anything now :\

I, too, have... erm... what's the word? Well, I did what you did. Except with four episodes so far.

I, uh. I... well, I dunno. I guess I like it. Kind of. Hmm...

I wish Haru x Sora were more of a focus... I'm confused about what happened between episodes-- actually, between all the episodes? "Between episodes 1 and n," then. I guess.

On another note, I've been watching Ore no Imouto ga Ko..etc..Wake ga Nai ...Eh, it's alright. I want more Angel Beats instead.

And Highschool of the Dead disappointed me. I had to get really drunk to feel less sad about it. Because it had a lot of potential, and, um, stuff?

Hey, isn't there going to be a new season of Shakugan no Shana now that Shana S is done?

Apparently, Satoshi trains his Pikachu by letting it use Thunderbolt and/or Volt Tackle...on himself.
And he doesn't even FLINCH taking them head on...

I've always been a Master since the release of Blue/Red. That guy on top of Mount Silver? Yeah. That's me. And you won't beat me, even with 6 LV100 Dragonites on your team. >:]

No but srsly - started checking the japanese movies one time, and then proceeded to the rest of them: quite surprisingly, some of them are really good (ESPECIALLY the 8th movie with Lucario and whatnot), and then when Best Wishes started I thought, what the heck.
And lo and behold, Team Rocket are actually acting villainous and being cool for once - that gets it a gold star from me.

And in ep 5 (i think), TR's Meowth painted himself like an Umbreon to distract the locals by rarity...worked nicely, and then when he was cornered he was like, "Lol no, I'm no Umbreon, just a talking Meowth passing by" and strutted off like a cool guy. Took them like half a minute to realize Meowth (as a Kanto pokemon) is pretty damn rare too, and resume chasing. LOL'D. Also Satoshi throwing pokeballs at people due to strange hairstyles and hiding in bushes. LULZ'D. Still some of the old childishness, but I liek it so far.

It really has been a long time since I've caught up with a series and am eagerly awaiting the next episode Madoka Magica.

Madoka Magica reminds back when I was still being introduced to fansubbed anime and my obsession with My HiME. The Kajiura music certainly helped with that connection. haha

Yay, I'm watching Madoka Magica too. It's awesome. >O<

So yeah, that and Star Driver. Also got around to watching Strike Witches (up to episode 8; though I saw the first few episodes... sometime last summer I think?). So far my reaction has been along the lines of HOLY YURI OVERTONES BATMAN!!!!!!!! ಠ‿ಠ

And I giggled like a teenage boy all. throughout. episode. 7.

I FOUND PANTY THEFT FUNNY.

Oh, also. While I was dl'ing SW for the first time, I came upon something vaguely interesting/strange...

There's a decensored version of that panty-theft episode. And parts of the rest of the series.
Despite whatever implications carried, I have to say, kudos to whoever did that. That takes some damn load of work to pull through with.

All of Kraus' watchlist + Level E and Star Driver.

Also, on the OLD STUFF list: watching Azumanga and Zipang. Zipang is about a 21st century top-notch heavy battlecruiser that is timewarped from 2002 to the battle of Midway. Needless to say, COOL SHIT ensues. -w-

And speaking of watching stuff...

Greatest anime OP troll, aka Madoka Magica
Badassery, aka Mazinkaiser SLK
Token mecha animu that knows it's a token mecha animu and doesn't take itself too seriously, aka Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector
Scifi Action Boobies, aka Freezing
Stupidly formulaic harem animu but I'm still watching it for now because it reminds me of the awesome that is Triggerheart Excelica, aka Infinite Stratos
Fresh approach to mecha and something produced by XEBEC which surprisingly is not a steaming pile of dung, aka Break Blade
Retro-mecha awesome with a newschool budget, aka Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn

MIchiko to Hatchin (interesting style IMO)

Dr. Kraus, Wandering Son (Hourou Musuko) anime starts off from quite the middle of the manga, it's fairly difficult to catch on without reading it first, especially on the first view. ^^ Judging from its measly length (11 episodes? WTF) it won't finish anywhere either. Nevertheless, I'm up to episode 9 by now, and absolutely love it. Thank goodness for animes without fan service and ridicule. <3

Loved the first episode of Steins;Gate
Chaos;Head was awesome, and it feels like the production quality of Steins;Gate is way higher
and the plot is great

Also on episode 20 of Kimi ni Todoke
It's really slow paced
Not sure if it's my style or not...

Ehh, I liked Kaichou wa Maid-sama more, but I get the feeling that Kimi ni Todoke will have more closure :p

I got board and went into my netflix on xbox to find a ton of anime released for instant watching.

Though the American subbing makes me sick to my stomach, I just started to watch Sekirei which is alright for now...
christ they even have strike witches subbed in here...funimation needs better voice acting, my ears are bleeding! 
They have a girl voicing a guy!?!? wtf is going on?

oh wow just noticed this is uncensored and rated TV-MA...

I'll pass on Netflix, I think it sucks that they dropped the DVD rental service. (Srsly. DO NOT LIKE streaming video on my computer, I'll tolerate it but would much rather watch a TV... probably the reason any anime series I download, I go through at a snail's pace.) ><

Steins;Gate is sufficiently awesome

It'll fill the void after Madoka is finished

Also starting on Kimi ni Todoke season II...
Not proud of that though

Also...

Can anyone else not stand English dubbed anime?
The voice actors are decent sometimes, as was the case with Cowboy Bebop
But, there're no honorifics...
And...
Cultural references tend to be carved up so horrifically that it makes one wonder if...
perhaps...
The dubbers themselves are illegal Mexicans?
Illegal Mexicans.
Illegal Mexicans.

Anyway, wrt:

I also usually don't watch dubbed, much prefer well done fansubs.
And you got it right, the voice actors are decent sometimes... most of the time they suck big time I think. Also it's really easy to get fansubs if you know the proper sites ^^
I also prefer having the series on my disk, rather than streaming... you can't stream something in full 1920x1080 :D

Well, a recent dub that I enjoyed would be that of Baccano!.

Mostly because they don't use that same pool of voice actors, since they wanted to get the 1920s accents and things in it. I don't like dubs myself, but that one, I do recommend.

That said I've got A Channel, Nichijou, Moshidora (because Spice & Wolf no longer holds the monopoly on economics/business anime), the first two parts of the Yozakura Quartet (one episode every like five months?  Bullshit.), and probably Showa Monogatari soon.

My-HiME was among the first handful of anime I watched when I first knew what anime was.  When I was watching Madoka, My HiME immediately came to mind.  Kajiura soundtrack helped greatly in that regard.  Like Madoka, there is a sort of Episode 3 moment. Not quite "OMG WHAT?! NOOO!!" but more, "aw damn, sh*@'s hitting the fan now." (that made more sense in my head) Madoka is way better, but My HiME seems to be up there in my internal ranking. Must be the nostalgia goggles.

Also, during this "anime newb" period, I discovered a DVD for Tenchi Muyo in the local library. I do believe I saw a scene with Ryoko and Ayeka bathing.  A year or two later, I saw the same scene on Cartoon Network at my cousin's house.

figured i'd let anyone know who's interested, i found some anime that's free to download (legally!!).

it's called Megumi, and while the story seems sad, the style seems decent. it was also produced by the japanese government. :3
here's (http://www.japanprobe.com/2008/04/16/free-anime-download-megumi/) a page with links to the original page, where you can download it (it comes in multiple languages, both subbed and dubbed).
i'll warn you now, the MPEG-4 link on the english version is broken, but the WMA files seem to work (which stands to reason the ones for realplayer do too). i'm probably gonna convert the WMA to MPEG-4, so you probably could too.

looks sad but pretty, but sad. :\ (and FREE!!)

EDIT: the only one out of the subtitled versions i could get to work was the narrow-band realplayer version. if anyone else can get them to work, then please send it to me. :\

I know I'm behind the times here, but I finally got started on watching Panty and Stocking With Garterbelt! Now, I'm only up to episode 5, but it is incredible how each episode goes beyond the impossible on how ridiculous, inappropriate and over-the-top it can get, and it is AWESOME for it!

And for some mood whiplash, I'm also watching Madoka Magica. Right after watching episodes 3 and 4 of PSG, a friend and I watched episode 3 of Madoka Magica. o_o

After watching the first few episodes, saying "meh", and letting it sit on my hard drive for the next 8 months, I finally got around to watching Sora No Woto in its entirety.

It was fascinating. Note I didn't say "interesting", since interesting would imply that something actually happened. No, it was one of those introspective character studies, paced neither to slowly nor to fast. There was a disappointingly small amount of fighting for a war story, and I would have really liked to know more about the background of the characters and their setting... but oh well.

It's been described as K-On meets All Quiet on the Western Front meets Haibane Renmei - I didn't see ANY K-On in it (save the superficially similar art style), but the Haibane Renmei comparison is well-founded if you ask me... also, this chart I modified pretty much sums up the characters.

(also, i looked into it and found a nice WD 1TB external for about 60 bucks; going to save and make it my animoo drive. :3

Anyway... I just finished S1... random thoughts:

-KYON IS AWESOME.
-YUKI IS AWESOME.
-Mikuru's moeblobbery is teh lulz.
-Koizumi's ho-yay-inducing-disregard-for-others'-personal-space is also teh lulz...
-Haruhi's... Haruhiness straddles the fine line between EPIC and NEEDZ MEDZ.
-Yuki + guitar >>>>>>> All the lead characters of K-On combined
-KYON IS AWWWWWWEEEESOOOOOME~ AS IS YUUUUKIIIIIII~~~

Nice, I've wanted to give Chobits a watch for awhile...

They added alot of Anime to Netflix (though its mainly English dubbed) so I've been just browsing around in there, I've found many highly regarded anime selections for the instant streaming. Think that when I get my second monitor back up (my younger brother took my really nice LG because he is addicted to playing Counter Strike: Source) I'm planning on watching:

1. Eden of the East (Movie and Series)
2. Samurai Champloo (I've seen it all in Japanese but I want to see what they did with the English Dub)
3. Afro Samurai, Afro Samurai: Resurrection (SAMUEL MOTHA-FUCK'N-L. JACKSON)
4. ALL the Gunslinger Girls (One of my favorites, I'm going to love it in English or Japanese regardless)
5. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (DVD needs to be sent in, I'll have to wait for a while to watch this because I'm going out of town for a good week)
6. Baccano! (Why haven't I watched this yet?)
7. The Sacred Blacksmith (Only herd good things about it, should be a good watch)

This is a pretty long list, so I'm probably not going to finish it all for a few months along side the current anime running...

Let me know if it's any good!  I never got around to watching it, but I remember people on MAL comparing it to Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu/LoLHeroes/whatever :p

I think I'll watch every Kara no Kyoukai movie this weekend since nothing's happening

I also have the Eve no Jikan gekijouban now, but a cursory inspection shows that it doesn't have much new content!  :(
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: NejinOniwa on August 19, 2011, 08:07:07 am
Regios is shitty shounen crap.

Or, well, ok, it's not THAT bad, but it's boaring and doesn't progress its plot in any direction that's actually visible within the first like 10 episodes. Nice action though.

I have seen SO MUCH animu >_>
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 19, 2011, 10:34:58 pm
@nej: that's your opinion. typically most of the stuff i read/watch is either sappy-ass shojo like kimi ni todoke or me and my brothers, or action-action-action shounen stuff, like reborn! :\

that said, i like regios so far. it seems to have some deeper elements of plot, but in terms of relationships, it seems like the cookie-cutter love triangle between the tomboyish one who can't admit her feelings, the fangirl(s), and the mysterious quiet one. other than that, the action is really lovely, and frankly, i find both the main character and the tomboyish love interest hot. the mysterious one and her brother and their 2 friends ain't bad either. >////w////>;;

the action sequences are nice, if you're into that, although the main character seems to be "THE CHOSEN ONE" (or something like that, you get my point). plus, they have cute school uniforms!! >:3

this is likely a dumb question, but has anyone here seen pretty guardian sailor moon? (the live-action adaptation of SM) i was thinking of torrenting it (partially for the lulz), but if anyone's seen it i'd like an opinion.
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Penti-chan on August 19, 2011, 10:39:16 pm
I saw a few episodes of it, when my sister borrowed a bootleg box set of it from one of her friends. It's not too bad, although a bit weird because it feels less like the Sailor Moon I'm used to and more like a Super Sentai or Power Rangers series, due to being live action
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 19, 2011, 10:42:29 pm
besides the weirdness of usagi's hair being black one second and blonde the next, was it any good? or was it just a campy crap adaptation? :\ (worth watching?)
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Penti-chan on August 19, 2011, 10:51:31 pm
It's worth watching at least a few episodes to try it out. It does feel a bit cheesy compared to the anime, but then again, that's what most live action adaptations are like in my experience
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 19, 2011, 10:54:53 pm
why do you think i watch more anime, lol? :3

of course, that leads to the question of what if they adapted a live-action series into a cartoon?
(power rangers anime? or a jem live action series???? o__o; )
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Penti-chan on August 19, 2011, 11:03:56 pm
There have been a few animated adaptations of live action series before. Star Trek: The Animated Series, to name one, even if it's not an anime
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 19, 2011, 11:07:53 pm
it's in that grey area of cartoons that's not quite anime but cooler than a regular cartoon (jem, speed racer, etc).

the old episodes on demand are going out today, so i'm hoping for some new episodes of chobits and regios soon. :3
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Penti-chan on August 19, 2011, 11:16:34 pm
Um...Speed Racer is an anime series. A very early one (Pre-Voltron, post-Astro Boy), but an anime series nonetheless
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 19, 2011, 11:53:32 pm
yeah, i know. but it may be within that grey area, since anime is a bit of an umbrella term in retrospect (today's anime is nothing like older anime like oniisama e or mahou tsukai sally).

EDIT: third episode of regios has yuri at the beginning........i approve :3

I can't wait for Fate/zero! Must haev! Getting excited.

@stew: i hate it that alot of manga sites have been shut down. i realize it's a copyright issue, but at the same time, for manga that hasn't been translated otherwise or is long out of print, what copyright is there? it's not like they're profiting from it......

watched "The Girl Who Lept Through Time" in Glorious 5.1 THX Stereo! In Japanese of coarse (Thank god I can switch the speech to Japanese) but the subtitles are ugly and get in the way so I just watched without (Thank god I can construct a sentence in Japanese).

Great movie, recommend to all along side 5cm/s ("Five Centimeters Per Second")

Now I'm off to bed because I have school tomorrow. Wish me luck!

@pitkin: you'll find something else to fill the void. might i reccomend regios? :3
@red: i remember seeing an "interesting" item related to that anime on jlist..... :\

watched the first 3 episodes of My Bride is a Mermaid last night (and lol'd when i found the first 2 episodes on demand this morning). i've only been through 3 episodes, and already my patience (sp?) is wearing thin on some of the recurring jokes. that said, though, this anime reminds me of classic 90's comedy anime, with the kinda-lame puns, the over-the-top emotions, and squarish eyes. :3 if you guys are yearning for something that makes you laugh and facepalm like you did years ago, then watch it. if you have no patience for these things, then skip it. :3

After hearing Bella and the others make a big deal about it, I decided to take a break from CCS (Having finished season 2) to try out Madoka Magica

So far, it's...really weird, for lack of a better way to put it, but since it's a short series (12 episodes), I'll likely finish it before watching the final season of CCS.
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?

Through episode six of Durarara!! and through to ten of Ookami-san.

Opinion thus far: Ookami-san isn't my favorite series of all time, though I do like it.  Durarara!! kicks ass.  Accept no substitutes.
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: svx on September 23, 2011, 06:11:11 am
I watched Durarara a few months ago...

It's getting pretty popular in America, too.  Adult Swim is playing an English dub of it

But...
Ehh...

I mean...  I watched it all, but...
What the hell was it about?  :p

It felt like Boogiepop Phantom to me,
because I didn't know that the one chick in Boogiepop Phantom was NOT the other chick (THEY LOOK THE SAME! :( ),

Finally finished Roberta's Blood Trail. At last, a satisfactory answer to the age-old question of HOW MUCH BADASS CAN YOU PACK INTO A FIVE-EPISODE OAV?!!!!!!!!!!

(http://deremoe.com/deremoeWP/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/black-lagoon-robertas-blood-trail-roberta.jpg)
(And the question of "How many terrifying slasher smiles can you pack into five episodes?")



I think I'm going to have to watch some Evangelion to de-traumatize myself.

Ah, Haruhi. I watched the entire series thus far (Seasons 1 and 2) in exact chronological order this past January, and aside from Endless Eight, I loved every minute of it*

*Although, I did start to riff on Endless Eight in an MST3K style toward the end; making it more bearable

it all worked out.

monday we begin one of the series i torrented, though i'm unsure which, since the president has taken it upon himself to kick the stuff i gathered out in favour of the evangelion movie You Are Not Alone. ><;;

i've never even seen evangelion. if he's going to do stuff like this, why did i torrent all this in the first place?

Rejoice, I actually found some decent animu on my cables' on-demand service!

Highschool of the Dead episodes 1 and 2 - it's pretty much an orgy of blood and violence and boob-and-panty fanservice. I was regretting watching it before bed during ep. 1, but episode 2 wasn't quite as horrific. Okay, it was still pretty horrific, but the nailgun-toting antics of Kohta COMPLETELY made up for it. Picture related.

(http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lw153fWV5V1qfbz1so1_500.gif)

So far, he and Saeko are my favorite characters, though Saya is kind of amusing (in an I SPY A POTENTIAL YANGIRE way) and the walking fanservice machine school nurse is kind of hilarious as well.

Since HSOTD is kind of grim, I decided to watch an episode (ep.11 to be exact) of Hidamari Sketch afterward ... finally, an anime for all those who think series like Nichijou, Lucky Star and Pani Poni Dash aren't random/bizarre enough!

Ive seen the show, its okay but its definitly one I watch with my friends for the sake of MS3K comments durring it.   The manga she show is based off of is actually drawn by a hentai artist trying to go "legit"  hence all the fan service. Personally.. I could have done without the zombie panty shots.

The gunplay seen in it is pretty nice tho.

the reason pentium wants to watch digimon again is because me and mel watched the second and third digimon movies. :3 the latter led to my latest post in context quote. :\

If your club could handle NGE, they can certainly handle Dantalian. -w-

I mean, unless the later half of Dantalian ends up being insanely depressing, violent and mindscrewing, but I seriously doubt that it's headed in that direction.
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 01, 2012, 12:59:14 pm
good to know. the club president is peforming experiments lately to test the boundaries of violence tolerance in the club. so far we've watched one part of the NGE movie You Are Not Alone. it went well, but we had to skip most of the scene where Shinji was in Misato's apartment, since there was a bathing scene with nudity. :\

that said, if there's time in the spring, i'll mention Dantalian to the club president. :3

That's so cool that you have a college anime club. : o

Pretty sure nobody in my neck of the woods is into manga or anime. I've only found one or two manga ever at new or used book stores (even ones with comic sections), anime never turns up at movie shops, that really nice Naruto shirt was hanging out in a thrift store that has a typical product turn-over time of a week for like the last four months, and the only other anime fans I know around here are my brother and an acquaintance. >.<
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 02, 2012, 06:37:45 pm
which is why you should come hang with us sometime. :\ there's lots of people who like anime here. (the local FYE has an 'alright' anime section, but the Barnes and Noble has a really nice manga section (and a seperate section for the "How to Draw Manga" books).

@stew: i haven't had any interaction with the club here outside of saying hi to its president once in awhile. that said, the high school anime club is open to new things, which is great, since otherwise we'd be watching nothing but D Grey Man, FMA and NGE movies. :\

speaking of which, i want to watch ahead in the anime we're watching, but i want to be just as surprised as them when we see it >>;

it's called Mirai Nikki

and...
Gasai Yuno is pretty cute.

Really cute. But.
and this is a huge "but",
I'm pretty sure Arucard from Hellsing would be terrified of her
and she'd probably murder Lucy from Elfen Lied with an ice pick

Good anime so far :)

EDIT: finished 5, 6, and 7. we've seen them get a new teammate, test their skills against elementary school kids (who are surprisingly good sports), and challenge the middle school pitchers (and one batter) to duels in the street at night.

oh, and the main character is now betrothed. ^^;

@pentium: badass, lemme know if you want links to the original movies (they leave a few parts out in the american ones, plus there's the ones they didn't release like Diaboromon's Revenge).

also, it's a kickass show, i really want to get people to watch it but no one seems interested. i have the whole series if you'd like a zip file or anything.

also, watched episode 8 earlier. after a whole bunch of misunderstandings, koume's fiancee knows about her playing baseball, and he's cool with it.

Did you know Tokyo Bushi is set to the tune of the Civil War era song Marching Through Georgia?  And was popular with Japanese troops during the Russo-Japanese War?
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 07, 2012, 11:20:17 pm
the more you know!

(did you know that most of the landmarks mentioned in the song are now non-existent?)
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?

I did, they were mostly destroyed during one of the Tokyo earthquakes.  I keep considering buying an old Tokyo Metropolitan Police sword they have at a local antique mall.

That does look like an interesting series, maybe I'll give it a watch once I'm done with Dantalian...
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 08, 2012, 05:35:50 pm
@bella: DO EET.
@stew: DO EET. and alot of the ones that survived don't exist still, they were either torn down or converted into other buildings.
(also, if you mean the great kanto earthquake, the series is set in 1926, 3 years after the quake, and it mentions all the landmarks.
maybe it's just a coincidence.)

Post by: stewartsage on January 08, 2012, 08:06:16 pm
Mhmm, I don't think it was the Kanto quake that took them down.  Fire bombing WWII finished off most of them though, being made of wood.

true. that was one of japan's flaws during that war. :\

i need to figure out if there's any more nudity in Urusei Yatsura. >>;

EDIT: upon googling the subject, this amusing little blurb came up:
(http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i98/Chocofreak13/animefail.jpg)

1. i don't like religious organizations, regardless of intent. people of all faiths should come together and watch anime. >>;
2. there's nudity in the first episode and it's a recurring plot point throughout the series and some of the movies. xD
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Penti-chan on January 12, 2012, 09:50:36 am
That site's name alone makes me cringe >_<

Anyway, I've started to watch Digimon again. So far, thoughts on the Japanese version:

- The theme song is better. No more "Digimons are the trumpets Digimon are the champions"; we instead have a theme song that has more lyrics to it, and just seems to fit better

- The background music is better than what I remember the dub having...although to be fair, it's been so long that I may not be remembering the dub's music well

- The Digidestined are simply called the "Chosen Children". To me, that sounds better, as "Digidestined" sounds kind of silly

- Although this also existed in the dub, I have to point it out: Izzy has a Pineapple iBook. Therefore, the character I relate to the most has his own version of Sonata :3

People can't have a website/community to discuss TV programs that happen to agree with their moral or ethical system? What if the site was dedicated to Muslim-friendly anime, atheism-friendly anime, or for that matter, peace-promoting or anime or feminism-friendly anime?

Secondly, nudity isn't always sexualized, and even if it was presented in a somewhat bawdy manner, not all Christians would object to it. There's actually an enormous range of moral and ethical variation among people who identify as Christians; the same as people of every other belief/non-belief system.
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 12, 2012, 10:53:39 pm
i clicked on the site out of curiosity. they're about introducing anime to people that think it's 'evil'. there's even a section for parents, complete with "is anime really okay for my child to watch" section.

i'm cool with people having religious groups and whatnot. but i don't think religion should be brought into things like this, since people should be able to sit with people and watch and enjoy, regardless of faith.

(besides, if the site makes a christian cringe, i think that says something. >>; )

also, the thread was about whether or not Urusei Yatsura is ok for kids. while the series is alright for 13+, it was pretty funny for the person posting that to forget that THERE WAS NUDITY IN THE FIRST EPISODE. >>;;;

@pentium: i haven't seen the subbed series yet, but yes, the theme songs were so much more epic. >w< pretty sure i have them in mp3 format if you want.

also, the background music is really nice, isn't it? it makes me wonder why they would change something like that. :\

also, i prefer some of their japanese names to the american. xD did you know they changed Tai and Kari's last name for the dub? they were originally Yagami Taichi and Yagami Hikari. :\

I think it's actually a good thing that a site like that exists, since quite unfortunately, some of people still hold the absurd idea that anime is all violence and sex ... and not just Christians or conservative people either, think about the sort of stereotypes that teacher of yours was spouting about anime and manga. Maybe that site will help people see that the stereotypes surrounding of anime aren't true, and that it's as valid - and potentially-inspiring and enriching - a form of entertainment as any other.

@Bella: Uh...I haven't used dial-up since a few months after I went absent from the OSC; which would be roughly summer '09. I have DSL now, and although it's a pile of crap compared to the internet connections of literally every other person on this site, it is about 10x faster than what I had before
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 15, 2012, 01:37:57 pm
that's right, bells. not everyone who has crap internet has dial-up. :3

that said, the other night i previewed the 2nd episode of Urusei Yatsura (the 2nd half of the first episode, really) to make sure there was no nudity. lulz were had.

I... never used dial up. At least not at my house. The first time I had my own internet connection was in ~2005ish, and that was broadband of some sort...

As for anime - still watching HSotD and Dantalian (though I'm only to the half-way point on both.) ^^;
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: NejinOniwa on January 16, 2012, 08:54:44 pm
Dial-up, i think, was when my mother's work issued her a copy of Internet Explorer. Via post. On cd. It was fairly early, just after we got our Win95 computer, which should reasonably have been somewhere around 1996 or so.

We got 10mbit broadband in 2000. ^^;
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on January 16, 2012, 09:01:25 pm
we used dial up till we got rid of the internet when i was about 10. we didn't get the net back till i was 14, which is when we first got broadband via fairpoint (we switched to comcast not soon after). i have fond memories of dial-up, as well as trolling for hentai when i was like, 8. and all those nights i would spend on SM fansites. <333 good times.

that said, nothing ostracizes a kid in this day and age quite like not having the internet. it was an awkward couple of years, and it took me awhile to catch up.
now, i'm ahead of most. >w>


next anime club isn't till the end of the month. ;v;

must.....resist.....watching more UY......
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Penti-chan on January 16, 2012, 09:18:06 pm
We used dial-up from roughly '95 (On the unknown 486 that came before the Yeti) until '09; when, after nearly 10 years of trying to talk mom into upgrading, she finally moved to DSL. It's the slowest internet connection of every last person on this site, but it's still 10x faster than what I had before it

Anyway, I'm currently watching Digimon again. I haven't sat down to episode 2 yet, but I have up to episode 35 available when I'm ready

last week in anime club, we continued Usagi Drop and watched the first half of the first episode of UY. we also watched another section of the NGE movie. and we determined that my schoolgirl outfit is now my official mascot outfit. :3
Title: Re: What anime are ya watching?
Post by: Chocofreak13 on February 20, 2012, 01:42:13 pm
double posting due to age~

today we continue Usagi Drop and Urusei Yatsura, though i freshly torrented the OVAs for UD, so i'm going to propose watching that to the club.

after that, we'll continue the second NGE movie, You Can (Not) Advance.

i'm also going to be asking the club what they'd like to watch in the future. right now the prospects are:

Dantalian no Shouka
Taisho Yakyuu Musume
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
D-Grey Man
Ben-to

and i could always torrent something else. xD

no, they don't. any anime i torrent can't be licensed in this country, since if it's not, it's legal.

it's like a don't ask don't tell thing, but since the torrenting process had to be explained, the white knight types started to get all uppity, so the president asked around the computer repair room about it, and found out that non-licensed is legal.
that said though, Taisho was like, THE perfect anime to show. hence my pissyness.

in response i got some openings for other suitable unlicensed animes to make up for Taisho. (though nothing can really make up for it. IT'S SO GOOD ;^; ) the list of trailers/openings i have now are:

after that, we watched code geass ep. 3, though we had to skip the last 10 minutes due to a shower scene. honestly, the president coulda planned better. but that's okay, the series is steaming along well. >>;
