Title: What anime are you currently watching....
Post by: Bloodreign on March 01, 2016, 03:00:46 PM
Instead of video games, here you list the anime you are currently watching. For myself, I am doing 3 shows right now, 2 are currently still seeing new episodes, one is older and long completed:

Gintama
Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R
Ranma 1/2


Also, it'll snow, first topic I've made in a long time.

Bringing back some old loves of mine and watching a whole bunch of UC Gundam; Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, The 08TH MS Team, and 0083: Stardust Memory.

I am also indulging my old high school love of Naruto, and suffice to say, I still very much enjoy the series after an 8 year hiatus from my last viewing.

Finally, the time has come for my annual viewing of The Wallflower (Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge), which I watch every March in something of a tradition.

Come May, I'll do my annual viewing of Azumanga Daioh!, which is hands down my favorite anime of all time.

Azumangah Daioh is great viewing, without Osaka though, she's the glue that really holds the show together.

It's essentially a Japanese-and-gender-swapped version of my high school days, so it holds a very special place in my heart.

Osaka is my mom's favorite character, so she'd heartily agree with you.

I was checking out the Anime series 'Is this a Zombie?' Entertaining and funny to say the least. I feel sorry for Ayumu... he gets shafted so many times by those around him. Even literally at times too, lol.

I got through the first half of Gurren Lagann before October Horrorthon began, now I just gotta pick up where I left off and see what THE FUTURE holds for these characters. Super good animation and style, pretty intriguing story and concepts.

There's other anime I stopped watching midway like Patlabor (original TV series) and Slayers that I gotta get back into. Trouble is, like video games, some of these I've been away from so long that there's a compulsion to start from the beginning, which sucks because I'm already finding myself with little time to really watch or play anything as it is, making watching several episodes over again really daunting. But I have a problem with forgetting important plot points and have trouble getting caught up again if I don't start fresh.

Though I've heard another season is coming for Crystal, in 26 episodes they blew through the original and Death Moon sagas (original and R). Not one filler episode at all, I do miss having some filler though.

Hell, that's why filler episodes first started being done -- the pacing of a TV show is far different from the pacing of a manga.

At the rate they are going, I'd give it about 65 episodes, maybe a little more if they go past where the anime ended, the fight with the manga series main villain, Chaos. The anime never even touched on the main bad guy, no mentions or anything.

No spoilers, please.  I've never seen any form of Sailor Moon before, and am enjoying watching it with no idea of what's going on.  Once I've finished Crystal, I'm going on to the original series.  I agree however that a little more character building, showin actually how the Sailor Senshi become friends and grow closer would have been nice - one of my main issues with the series so far, along with some of the horrible cg textured characters at timed, including when the girls transform.

I'm watching Samurai Champloo again recently.  I came across some really High Definition rips in 1080p.  If you have not seen it, or think it's a goofey name, just trust me on this recommendation.  It's not overtly sexual, or goofy.  It has a lot of strong themes, and lessons to learn.  It's unlike most Japanimes I've seen.

I have not had much time being able to watch much japanese class is no slouch. But I was watching digimon tri I believe that is what it's called. It is All about Tai and the original group. Another I want to re watch is dragon quest Dai no Daibouken. The theme is pretty cool

and am I a bigger nerd for singing it out loud I love Oooo, yuusha yo!!!




Also I have some of the dvds for this



I sing both of these songs out loud.

And i just love, LOVE all the JJBA's openings and their soundtracks each! And honestly JJBA is my favorite series and to the Castlevania series! =D

Same, I'm up to episode 7 and not overly impressed. Not that I minded the DB feel, I liked BOG but it's the animation thus far that has let it down.

I hear it gets better later on, but I really wished they'd left BOG as canon and just continued after that, even if they remade FnF again with the anime.

It may also be biased on my behalf because I don't love the Japanese DB voices.

Just finished watching Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Movie again, and this being my sixth or seventh viewing of the film, bolstered by having seen the show through to the end and having read the original manga (I hadn't done either when I first encountered the movie), I can say the movie is FINALLY beginning to open its heart and reveal its secrets to me.

It's a lot like End of Evangelion, in that the film loves to screw with you and just be seemingly random for no reason (like that bit at the beginning of the last act when Utena suddenly turns into a car which Anthy then climbs into and drives away in, all with no explanation given and a side bonus that even Anthy is clearly weirded out and traumatized by what she just witnessed happen). It took all these repeat viewings over the years and context from the other versions of the story for me to realise what I think the intended symbolism was: representing how Utena's interactions with Anthy give her strength and enable her to escape her "prison of fate" and determine her own course in life for the first time. The tv show just had Anthy walk out the door on her own at the end to symbolise that, but I guess the movie felt that imagery was too subtle.

It doesn't help that there are no fewer than FIVE SEPARATE R.G.U CANONS(!): the original manga, the anime, the movie, the manga of the movie, and two light novels -- all of which are separate stories that are not linked with the others.

My advice to anyone watching this movie for the first time: watch the show first, read the original manga, and then make your own judgments upon watching the film -- the film's director and the manga's author have both stated that there's no right way to interpret the story and that all interpretations are correct.

But Revolutionary Girl Utena is not a thing to be missed for any reason; it's one of the greatest anime franchises ever made and the art style of the TV show and film ought to be displayed in museums.

For the love of God, WHY ARE YOU NOT WATCHING THIS YET?!

Make like an Assassin1 and get on with it!

I'm watching Muv-Luv: Schwarzesmarken. I loved the original VNs, but maybe I'm getting old...this anime takes place in an alternate universe where aliens are invading Germany when it was still divided during the 80s, and I just can't buy cute anime girls frolicking around while they're both being hunted by the Stasi *and* freaky aliens. ~_~

Ahh Shimoneta, watched it months ago, should've been a longer anime because I like how far it skirted being dirty, but the curse words were censored, even in subs. I learned about it not from word of mouth, but seeing a little asian dude/chick dancing around like the main character, complete with the censor bar over his private area. He/she wore nothing underneath, and at times the private area would flash, but the little censor bar covered it up.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gp6eECUP8DM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gp6eECUP8DM) this. Some say it's a guy, but it certainly has more of a female build to it. And no you never see any thing show, so it's work safe.

Sailor Moon Crystal season 3, as it comes out, love it to bits!

Oh and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, aka season 3 of  Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, not as enjoyable as season 2 as it takes place 10 years later, and the very mature for her age 3rd grader is now grown up and the show through the first episode seems centered more on her teams two younger recruits.

I'm looking forward to the return of Sailor Pluto.  Of all the Sailor Senshi, Pluto's by far my favourite.  I like the transformations so much more this season, rather than that weird 2D/3D art for the seasons 1 and 2 transformations.

I finished watching Blue Exorcist last night.  So very good!  It reminded me in a number of ways of Owari no Seraph.  It has a similar tone to it I think.  Kuro the Cat Sidhe is adorable, especially in the short OVA, and te last several episodes had me on the edge of my seat and getting choked up as some things transpired.  I loved the brotherly love/frustration between Rin and Yukio.  I'm definitely going to watch it again.  My only fault were the iffy English subtitles on Netflix.

Edit: I'm now watching the Blue Exorcist movie, and certain scenes are makign me think that it could potentially make for a very interesting crossover with the Sorow arc games....  namely, 'Genya Arikado's mysterious Agency being connected to/affiliated with / being part of the True Cross Order from Blue Exorcist.  Ooops.

The problem I've had with the transformations  is, everyone does so at once, a good 2+ minutes wasted watching them all transform that could be used for further character development.

That also really annoyed me as well  Showing this full transformations of all of them just takes too much time.  Maybe a partial transformation of each, or a split screen of multiple transformations at most would work better?

Currently rewatching Chobits with English dub. The world that human and very human-like computers living together kinda reminds me the world described in Mega Man ZX though the MMZX world is in a total war driven by some old shit piles and its purpose is to end the energy crisis and other troubles in a rather brutal way and much less daily life were shown in MMZX world


If some REALLY advanced computers like Chobits, with considerable destructive power, became stable models and mass produced by government, then it surely has the possibility to burn out some kind of wars as cruel as maverick reploids wars and cyber elf wars. Thanks goddess the designers of Chobits never let that happen; The model never get a chance to be mass produced in such a good and peaceful world... But who knows if the seed of war burns out  anyway?

Chobits was great, even if it had the common CLAMP tropes, there was one particular episode that gives me heavy feels.

DBSuper is great story-wise, animation-wise it could be perfect if 1/3rd of it was just drawn out sequences (I understand this is to keep pace with the manga, but damn, I hope the US version can edit roughly 2 episodes into one). on the bright side, DBSuper brings a fresh approach to the series constantly throwing off fan theorists with bold curve-balls making it very hard to predict.

I never really got into Chobits.  Cardcaptor Sakura was my CLAMP series of choice.  Cardcaptor Sakura is responsible for oh so very much.....  It was browsing a website called Bane Huntress (back before she knew the full details abotu Castlevania) which included piccies of white haired bishies, including Yue, on which I saw a saw pictures of the SotN manga introduction....  http://banehuntress.co.uk/Kojima_Ayami/Kojima_Ayami.html (http://banehuntress.co.uk/Kojima_Ayami/Kojima_Ayami.html)  The rest is history.

The anime version of X is better than the movie. RG Veda's anime is different from the manga. (and I'm talking about the original Japanese version)
The best version of both is still the manga.

I'm sure RG Veda was the original, this was old af even for a VHS tape.

Initial D season 1 and 2 are solid. I'm not even that into cars but I thought it was great.
There is s03 which is an anime movie I believe, but I heard the newer I/D s04 looked cool but was garbage.

My only beef with X anime is the second half, nothing with the story but seeing Fuuma declare himself as the other Kamui almost every other episode (twice at times) got old.
But I loved all the twists and turns the anime story gave, humanizing all of the characters and really saddening when you see some go...

ummm, maybe I'll check other CLAMP series in the future after I find back if any interest in anime stuff...hope I can get pass the generation gap


The last series I watched during teen was Elemental Gelade and why I chose to follow at that time is because the opening song. Now I can't remember if any particular scene in the series but the general art style and character design of main heroine (the girl with long blue hair) looks ok for me. Remembered frequently used that particular picture of the girl as wallpapers of some old PCs. The main hero guy reminds me a young-whoever-Belmont through the costume and the rope in his hand, and I thought it should be like that but nope he rarely uses the rope during fights but the girl morphs as his weapon. Then I disappointed a lot but eventually found the series itself ok and a little more interesting than I thought


After about 7 or 8 years banish of soul, after lost all the battle souls for Mega Man and Castlevania It's time for me to find some long lost gem in anime world that previously dismissed by accident

There is s03 which is an anime movie I believe, but I heard the newer I/D s04 looked cool but was garbage.

Thanks for the info. I found out that they have made a New Initial D set of anime movies which are abridged versions of the series if I am not mistaken. I might watch that version eventually when it's all done.
Not anime related but I just downloaded on the raw scans of the Wangan Midnight manga and that will occupy my time for now. Japanese reading challenge on technical auto stuff. /dang

Hmm up to you but I wouldn't recommend abridged versions for a show that goes into so much detail. It's a bit like Death Note with cars, I would definitely opt for series 1-2 og.

There was an abridged movie that glossed over the original first two seasons but it was incredibly vague and not recommended.

I see. If the abridged versions get me interested, I'll continue with the original series. It's the same thing that I did for Wangan when I started with the 2009 live action film, moved on to the anime and now reading the manga.

Inukami....a nutty anime about a medium who has a inukami who is a dog in human form helping him fight evil spirits. There's more nuttiness and perversion than evil spirits though.

I've just finished watching the Iron Man: The Rise of Technovore movie.  It's nicely done, and the CG animation gels quite nicely.  It's animated by Madhouse.  The voices in the dub (as I oddly felt it would 'sound' more right in English) aren't shoddy either, although as I was watching it, Technovore's VA reminded me a heck of a lot of Isaac von Kamper from Trinity Blood.

  This has then led to a rewatching of the opening credits of Owari no Seraph, after finding out that Technovore's Japanese VA also is in OnS.... I think I need to rewatch it again....   Ooops.  I'm going to have X.U. firmly earwormed in my brain for a while now.

Finished Inukami and it's movie, and have now randomly moved on to.....Cardcaptor Sakura. At first I was eh, but the first episode was really good (the getting used to being a magician and all, usually fades pretty quickly, every magical series seems to start like this, usually pretty funny bits). Hope the other 69 episodes deliver, watching the subs version as I'm not a fan of dubs.

I wasn't keen on Cardcaptors to begin with - in my initial ignorance, I wrote it off a bit as being a bit like Pokemon, got to catch all the cards.  Skip forwards a year or so, and I happened to catch the end of season 2, at around an episode called 'The Final Judgement', as I was off school sick, and Cardcaptors was on the childrens' afetrnoon telly.  180 degree turnaround, and I became a massive fan, beginning the true start of my liking of anime.  15 or so years later, and I'm still a fan of the series.

OH! I watched that movie too in the English dub. The story is very philosophical in nature. I agree the animation is nice.

I did not watch that series faithfully from start to finish, since I was watching it on the TV in the dubbed version and schoolwork was always in the way. I am not a fan of the magical girls shows so I was ok with missing episodes. But more or less I understood the basic plot and that was good enough for me.

Cost two days to finish watching through the Cardcaptors TV series. Not randomly moved to it

Planning to read through the manga side in my spare time but it will definitely cost more than a week to go



Personally I like the overall pattern of Chobits manga that amazed me like a chain of continuous waves of awesomeness. I can't help but to think over more the serious side of human-computer relationship than the story itself
I like the manga version ending because it gave the guy named Hideki a more "legit" final destination at the end

I'm the complete opposite of you, other than an early start in life with Voltron, magical girl anime (Sailor Moon dubbed) was my first  anime experience in the 90's. I caught on to that genre and stuck with it.

My first anime were those children's stories like The Secret Garden, Heidi, Princess Sarah, etc. I did not even know that these were anime then. I was also watching mechas like Daimos and Voltes V. But I was young and didn't care much about them, thus I was not watching regularly.
I started caring about anime when I was floored by Gundam Wing. Hahaha. Yeah, mechas were the first genre that I was serious about.

Also Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 is almost done, and started two moe girl animes, Anne Happy (sounds like Unhappy, random humor) and Sansha Sanyou, the latter two currently running their initial seasons.

I loved it when I was around 12 but when I tried to re-watch it later I couldn't get into it. The artwork is undeniably gorgeous though, and the Tallgeese 1 is still and will likely always be my favorite mecha.

As for what I've been watching lately-
I don't watch a lot of anime but out of curiosity and a desire to write a blogpost review I watched "Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls" and um.... yeeeeah. I don't think I could really talk about many specifics of the show outside the "adults only" thread XD. Definitely NSFW material. One of the funniest things I've seen in a long time though. I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed it since harem comedies aren't typically my thing. The last one I saw before this was "Love Hina" and that only because a roommate re-watched it constantly (when he wasn't re-reading the manga) around 2008. And before that the last I'd seen was "Tenchi in Tokyo" the better part of 2 decades ago.

PS- Holy crap the Tenchi Muyo franchise is STILL ongoing?! That is one indecisive kid. I would have thought he'd have just picked best girl (Ryoko) and sailed into the sunset by now.

Currently showing my girlfriend Macross Plus. She doesn't really know anime outside Ghibli and Vampire Hunter D, so I've really been craving my favorite anime and wanted to show it to her.

Only got through the first episode but I'm hoping she likes it by the end. Watching the Blu-ray set which only has the dub and no subs, and has the redubbed final episode. It's kind of a toss which is better because the Manga dub clearly has better voice acting, but the Bandai dub for that episode has all the original music and sound effects, which makes me kinda lean toward that one.

Did all 96 episodes of Maison Ikkoku, it tugged a lot at the old heartstrings, felt really bad for Godai. I found myself cursing at my TV at Kyoko for being stubborn, and Godai for being chickenshit, but in the end it all worked out. The series wrapped up quite nicely, unlike Rumiko Takahashi's other works. Best ending I've ever seen in an anime, only 1 mystery never solved, what was Yotsuya's job anyway?

Still doing Urusei Yatsura (resumed anyway, another Rumiko work), and first episode of Kill la Kill down (I kind of hate it's artstyle, but it's not short on action so far).
Title: Re: What anime are you currently watching....
Post by: Abnormal Freak on July 09, 2016, 04:41:56 PM
I love the art and animation style of Kill la Kill because it's like a souped-up, almost parody version of what made mid '90s anime so damn awesome to look at. I guess it ain't for everyone.

Post by: Bloodreign on July 11, 2016, 02:53:26 AM
Despite the artwork, I am still watching it (6 episodes in so far), the thing keeping me to it is the sheer ridiculousness of it. It's so absurd, I can dig it.

Also started Amaama to Inazuma (about to have it's second episode, it's adorable), have Gurran Lagann on the backburner, along with Ruronin Kenshin. So in total 5 animes I'm either keeping up with, or will soon be watching at once.

What gets me is, normally grown women do kids voices in anime, but Amaama to Inazuma's little girl is actually done by a 10 year old voice actress with 3 acting credits already to her name.

I finally finished Gurren Lagann. I'd watched the first half sometime last September and hadn't touched it since, but a couple days ago I finished eleven episodes in one day. Super damn good and addicting. Hiroyuki Imaishi has become one of my favorite anime directors; I like how his shows are constantly moving, as opposed to long spans of characters just talking, and the animation is always far out there. I remember watching Dead Leaves a long time ago and being amazed by how expressive the drawings are; I'd say to some extent, there's probably an influence from American cartoons like old Looney Tunes and Ren & Stimpy, something the director plays up even more in Panty & Stocking with its strong similarity in drawing style to shows like Powerpuff Girls. No shortage of interesting story concepts either, even if story isn't exactly the primary focus in most of his shows, although Gurren Lagann is easily the most in-depth and character-driven.

Next I'll watch the GL movies. I don't dig series recap movies where the majority of the footage is taken from the series but whatever. Looking back, I guess I gotta hand it to the Escaflowne movie for at least supplying 100% new animation, even if it's still a condensed series recap.

Yeah, there's surprisingly little info considering Tenchi was a hit on Toonami way back when, you'd think it would have retained more of an Enlgish-speaking fanbase. From what I gather the creator of the original OVA has written canon novels, I don't know if he's ended the story in those or if the next OVA (which according to a uselessly-sourced wikipedia article, well useless if you don't read Japanese, is supposed to be the end of the franchise) will be based on those novels. That OVA is supposedly coming out next year.
The OVA released last year was apparently just a collection of like 50 non-canon 4 minute shorts promoting tourism to some area of Japan.

PS- No wait, apparently that came out the year before last http://tenchi.wikia.com/wiki/Ai_Tenchi_Muyo (http://tenchi.wikia.com/wiki/Ai_Tenchi_Muyo)

PPS- I outgrew it by the time the dreadful "Tenchi in Tokyo" was finished airing, but man I'd be lying if I said this didn't take me back.

Oh, I know I am. I've loved it for a long time. I don't "love" the movie, but I enjoy the darker take on the story and appreciate the artistic merits it has on every rewatch.

The only anime I have taken up watching AT ALL in the last 8 years has been Kill La Kill, and I regret nothing. Other than that, everything I watch anime-wise is either stuff I enjoyed as a kid (Ronin Warriors, Sailor Moon, DBZ, Robotech, Gundam Wing) or stuff I enjoyed in High School (Gundams-Other-Than-Wing, Azumanga Daioh! The Animation, Escaflowne, Read or Die, Revolutionary Girl Utena, etc.).

Kill la Kill is done, made it through all 25 episodes, still didn't care for it's art, but loved everything else. Really felt nice hearing Nonon, her voice was done by the same lady who voices Angel in KoF (though she is a tad nasally in sound).

And lo and behold, a new arc of Cardcaptor Sakura has recently started, but so far it's in manga form. Here's hoping it too gets made into an anime. The story does pick up where the last left off, so it's not a reboot of any kind. The arc is known as the Clear Card arc.

The first season is my favorite anime of all time, and the movie (K: Missing Kings) was really good. But man, Return of Kings is pretty bad.

Picked Clannad (Both first part and After story) and Kanon (Both Toei and Kyoto versions) on Youtube

Probably I'll pick visual novel game incarnations of Kanon if I have enough time/mood... I like the story for some personal reasons but I may haven't got a patient of God in order to go through the ultimate boredom of text flows...




It's a shame that One Kagayaku Kisetsu e /One To the Radiant Season can't even get a proper Anime incarnation even though there once had VERY much possibility to have one. Since the copyright of the game was f**ed up we can only get some not-so-good OVA stuff of it. What a shame.

The real problem is volume length; The volume of events in original game simply can't fit in OVA with few limited episodes, if choose Nagamori Mizuka route as the story base...It should be at least one f**ing  season in order to really shines in the media mix war... And then they told us at least three completely different stories based on the main theme in all currently available media sources, which is so unusual to the Game/Anime world.

What a shame. The event happened in between the years 1998-1999 and I think there would be some further explanations why they gave us a time setting like this, but a cruel 2-ton bag of "nope" dropped right on my head.
Poor Nagamori Mizuka   :'(    She and her legend should be more well-known than we can see now but the cruel fact says it can't be    :'(  Maybe she's too perfect then fate decided to make her legend not that well-known.........

And now I'm in total desperation about newcomers of anime stuff

Well the late early to mid 90's was the era of Cyberpunk and all around darker Anime. I watched classics already mentioned but also others such as Street Fighter II (the original animated movie), Vampire Hunter D, Evangelion (which I considered somewhat lighthearted but mostly darker), Mad Bull, Crying Freeman (Yes shoutout to YOU mate 8)), Akira, Perfect Blue (didn't love it but it was dark), The guyver, GITS, Guy, and others. Although GITS is pretty Emo, I wouldn't chop it up to the entire generation.

I'm currently rewatching Trinity Blood, along with Show By Rock!!# (SB69 season 2).  I really like the mix of good music, and random fun insanity in SB69, something I'm not normally one for, but something about it got me hooked.  That said, I am still mostly watching for ShingancrimsonZ rather than Plasmagica, the main band.  With Trinity Blood, I've been watching the dub as it's available, just to take the strain off my eyes a bit atm.

Well at least you're watching it for the 2nd main band (Shingancrimsonz). I'm watching it for the minor shiny ones - Trichronika and Arcareafact, well, they both have a connection with SCZ...  They should make another season just focusing on the boy bands. ;D

Now that I could definitely see working, and would probably enjoy even more than the main series.

Speaking of Super, I'm really happy Funimation finally nabbed the license to dub it. Sure, it probably won't be premiering in English for another whole year, but I've waited this long, so I'm all good. I'm mostly up-to-date with it, but I really don't like the Japanese voices, so I've been mostly watching with the sound off. Funi dub is the way to go for me every time.

Outside of that, I haven't really watched anything since Berserk ended, aside from Sengoku BASARA: End of Judgment.

Anyone got any recommendations? I'm usually more into the action-packed anime. Doesn't necessarily need to be Dragon Ball Z fast-paced or Sengoku BASARA over-the-top, just something filled with action in general. Preferably with a halfway decent plot and characters to back it up? lol

I've returned to the original Sailor Moon.  I wasn't able to properly binge watch it as the first ten or so episodes were very poor quality, but it looks like it's improved this last episode. 

I#m currently looking forward to the now announced tv adaptation of Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card arc, which has a load of the original cast returning, which is awesome.

2018 for the next chapter in the Cardcaptor Sakura saga, should hopefully be as good as the original series. And early next year, the next chapter in the Gintama anime makes it's way to TV over there, and likely to the internet as well with Crunchyroll.

I really hope that the Clear Card arc adapation doesn't do what the Sailor Moon remake does and hop and skip through the plot and not give time for characer building.  Fingers crossed that they keep true to the original series and let it breathe.  I've just today finished the first season of the original Sailor Moon, and it's just leagues better than the first season of Crystal because it lets you see the characters become friends and get to know each other more.

The difference between a 40 episode season of the original Sailor Moon versus the 13 episode season of Crystal is astonishing eh? Season 3 did go back to a more traditional feel of the original series, with more humor, and a look closer to the 90's anime for the characters look. But it's hard to build side characters in so few episodes whereas the original sometimes gave the other girls (and Mamoru) almost an entire episode to themselves to build their character.

Sakura will likely only get 12-13 episodes anyway, and if one has watxhed the original anime seasons, then one already knows the characters. However, new people to the series, well I'd instruct them to watch the old series before the new season so they'll know and be caught up with everything first.

Agreed, re: Sailor Moon.  It really does suffer for it, in things like having the masked ball episode happen so early on, Tuxedo Mask moving in to kiss Sailor Moon makes him come across as a bit of a creep, especially as Usagi's more properly asleep rather than in a tipsy doze as she is in the original.  I'm very glad all in all that I've watched seasons 1-3 of Crystal first, then gone to watch the superior original series.  There are a few bits from Crystal that I like better, such as the animation, and I really liked the small touch of making Nephrite, Zoisite, Jadeite, and Kunzite originally Endymion's commanders (although the romance with the Sailor Senshi aspect wasn't needed).  I'm also very glad that Crystal left out the awful Doom Tree arc.  It had some interesting ideas, but was very poorly executed.

If memory serves me right, the Demon Tree arc was done to give the creator time to write the next arc in, she originally didn't get that far in the manga, so that part was put in to give her some time to create the next piece of the story.


As for myself, watching Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt......all I can say is wow, hate the artwork, though the adult humor is good.

I power-watched Angel Beats! last week. My friend got it for me for Xmas and raved on about it. I do admit it had its moments, has some solid story-telling, one of the more beautiful opening themes and a couple of interesting plot devices.

As for the series as a whole it's not one of my favourites by far, but it did make me laugh a few times and the finale was an emotional tug at the heart-strings.

It was good. the only things which bothered me was the OVA. Everything important to the plot's ending was already developed and explained by the end of the series, the OVA was more of a gag episode which offered nothing to the series itself. It would have been better if this had explained why/ how Angel had

Engaged by my jaunt through the eight-episode Black*Rock Shooter.  It's a nifty psychological action-drama with some nice 2D-looking-3D battles.  These take place in a parallel reality, reminding me a bit of Suckerpunch; as that awesome film's fantasy battles merely skirt the situations playing out, BRS' fights are more directly tied to its present reality. 

I heard something about Black*Rock Shooter being based on a shmup.

I have no idea how the release of it a few weeks ago escaped my attention until today, but OMG the Little Witch Academia tv series is out!  It's wonderful.  It's a reboot away from the continuity of the two movies, but it's wonderful.  I'm in the middle of mini-binging the first four episodes that are out so far.  I love this series to bits, it's very remniscent of The Worst Witch series by Jill Murphy in some ways, especially in the main protagonist the clumsy, not very knowledeable Akko, and her rivalry to brilliant and somewhat haughty Diana, who parallel Mildred and Ethel in WW.  It's got a dash of Harry Potter about it as well, and in the first film especially, there are references to D&D dungeon crawlers.  I'm seriously happy that it's earnt its own tv series, the two films are just so magical and charming.

Pretty much everything. I did watch the dub for Evangelion, as I always do. (Some day I will rematch the original series in Japanese with subs) I loved the whole setup of the plot/ how it's told, the way it was obscured slightly through 2/3's of the film, the symbolism of all of the piano scenes and dialogue between Shinji & Kaworu (the art direction/ style here was particularly nice), Shinji getting more character development, Asuka being back to her "old self" (she wasn't as 'Asuka'{fiery} in 2.22, the way it deviated so drastically from the first 2 films but is still Eva through and through; it explained a few things from the old series while raising new ideas/ situations such as

I've just got in from a special showing of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Dark Side of Dimensions.  Very cheesy, very much as predicted, but very fun.  We even got goodie bags that included special Obelisk the Tormentor cards.  I'm not a fan of the Duel Monsters aspect of the series at all, I mostly watched it for the original season 0, and the Millennium World arc at the very end of the original YGO gang stuff.  I liked the ancient Egyptian aspects to the story.  I was slightly sad that the showing was the English dub, as I much prefer the Japanese voices, but I liked that there wasn't the censoring that happened in the 4Kids dub of the series.  It's definitely the best of the movies, although it was a little on the unecessary side due to how the original run ended.

In the meanwhile, for me, it's all about the mechs.  Most of my anime watches recently involved mechs, which includes Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans Season 2.  Watched the newest one, and all I can say is that I'm eagerly excited to see the next episode.  In fact, I quite like Iron Blooded Orphans in general, both seasons.   I'm prolly gonna watch some other Gundam series as well as other mecha animes and other animes that pique my interest.

I've just finished watching the Waking the Dragons arc of Yu-Gi-Oh, the only arc I'd previously avoided past the first episode or two.  I was very pleasantly surprised, as like with the other seasons, the original Japanese arc is leagues above the dub in all respects.  It went to some very dark places, and asked interesting questions about the nature of the darkness in one's heart.  Having the antagonist Dartz voiced by a former Takarazuka Revue star was pretty cool as well.  It's also the only arc aside for the Memory World/Ceremonial Duel arc where I haven't skipped any of the duels.

After the annoying Himouto! Umaru-chan anime, which got a little better after a bit (and has a second season coming this year), this one's far more entertaining, and a lot more action packed.

Funny, but quite uncomfortable anime about a socially awkward shut in girl. She doesn't help herself as she seems to want to be popular but has shit luck.

Currently rewatching all anime before tackling a new one. Right now, it's Nichijou. Good, good shit~

Watched that about a year or two ago, wanted it to go longer than 81 or 82 episodes.

I believe seasons average 12 episodes, so it ran for a few. As for what I'm watching now, Maria Holic. This one will be a weird one, though not as strange as I'm Not Popular Because of You Guys, can't remember the Japanese name it's listed under though.

Negima!? Magister Negi Magi currently, 2 episodes in, not as bad as someone told me it was. Basically a Shaft Studios reboot of a series 1 year prior, but with the Shaft spin on it, though for a comedy, it has a lot of more darker moments that are not comedy, but it's usually broken by something silly happening.


After this I might watch the original, though the original isn't comedy.

Um yeah, about non-canon stuff--I've generally found that most people really don't know or care to know the difference for this series.

It's generally all a big rehash IMHO. Which makes me wonder why it is that I am still watching the series sometimes...It's probably more for the good animation and fight scenes when they exhibit themselves, the story is as usual predictable and non-climatic since you always know who is going to end up on top...

They've had a few chances in Super and the new movies to shake up the stale old formula, and missed those opportunities since they were in a sense starting from scratch. For example, a lot of people really think Vegeta should have been the hero in the last flick...instead, it's more of the same ol'...

I actually really liked the Zamasu arc. Now I get the feeling that everything is out the window and they're just writing alove letter to all variety of fans with this Broly copied universe. It kind of pisses me off that they can't just come up with something more original.

Not bad, no. Just predictable. There were some nice nods to the past  with trying to seal him away, but these sudden , inexplicable leaps in power that make everyone (Trunks, Picollo, Roshi, etc...) able to to stand at levels that are equal to SS Gods is ridiculous...As is the "everyone-makes-a-miraculous-leap-in-ability-just-one-day-from-the-tournament-of-power". BS.  At least have everyone train in the room of spirit of time or something like Vegeta and blow their way out every time. Yes, it's old, but at least it makes logical sense...

After Vegito SSJB power levels went out the window, they could be explained up to the point where Goku's Kamehameha punctured Fusion Zamasu's final chi blast (Vegeta and Trunks' combined Galick Gun should've been stronger but didn't have the same affect). The point where Kaioken SSJB Goku broke Fusion Zamasu's halo made sense, but Vegito couldn't stand up to a fully powered up version of him. This was bs to me, Vegito should be stronger than Kaioken SSJBGoku. Presuming Half Purple Zamasu got a massive power boost could explain why Vegito Blue was evenly matched with him, however, the fact a "worn down" Zamasu got clipped point blank by Trunks' blade (even with him being passed full power, converting spirit bomb energy into God Ki) still left room for doubt.

This new arc just seems to me that SSJB is being purposely powered down to shoehorn old characters in, which annoys me because it is what "Resurrection F" did so well in order to avoid. I think this can be explained by SSJB being able to be surpressed lower than a normal SSJ, but fighters who don't use God Ki should be losing and not able to sense Goku or Vegeta's movements. This element of God Ki seems to have been retconned to allow the story to progress. This is shown by Goku having to use SSJB Kaioken to one shot New Mystic Gohan.
Maybe the manga is different but it has been badly explained I the anime.

Yeah, that watering down is indeed annoying. In Typical DBZ TV fashion, it's dragging out too long getting to the actual tournament of power...we really didn't need an exposition going into each character's preparations for the tourney, just show up already...

As is, I think it will STILL drag on for a few more episodes to get into the real fight, even though there's supposedly "just" one more hour left before starts...sigh...

I stand corrected, the original series is comedy, but less on the slapstick than the reboot. More than halfway through it, seems quite different than the reboot. Closer to it's manga material than the reboot too.

The penultimate episode of Little Witch Academia was lovely.  It's a beautifully clever and I think underappreciated series.  I wonder if it will get another series?  I hope so.

I' currently contemplating a rewatch of Gundam Wing.  I used to watch it as a teen on the Cartoon Network, mostly for the dynamics between the main people in OZ, especially Zechs.  I think I'd appreciate the general world politics a lot more now I'm older.

Back in time to one from 1995, before CGI, and when things were still cel drawings, Ai Tenshi Densetsu Wedding Peach. Very much reminded of Sailor Moon with this one, same kind of genre, same goofy humor, maybe less clumsy heroine. Looks to follow the same formula too, main character transforms (with a wedding dress too), her 2 friends don't just yet Looked ahead, there are 4, though that's 1 less than Sailor Moon, and no outer senshi.


Randomly picked anime FTW. Last one was Asu no Yoichi, which was supposed to be a romance and harem anime, delivered really on neither. But I'm a sucker for Sailor Moon type shows.

Post by: Gunlord on July 05, 2017, 04:08:49 AM
Caught an ep of the new mecha anime, Knights and Magic. It's...OK. The premise is that a Japanese programmer who really really loves giant robots is hit by a car and dies, only to be reincarnated as a young nobleman in a fantasy world, Ernesti. In this fantasy world, though, there are lots of giant monsters called Demon Beasts, and the medieval fantasy kingdoms must fight those monsters by piloting magically powered giant robots called Knight Silhouettes. Needless to say, our protagonist is so happy to be in a world with mecha that he doesn't care at all about having died, and promptly displays a peerless skill at both magic and mecha-piloting as well.

This is just the first episode, and...I guess it's okay. I'll start with the bad first. The comparisons with other fantasy-mecha shows, Aura Battler Dunbine and Vision of Escaflowne, are natural, and I don't think Knights and Mecha fares so well. Dunbine and Escaflowne had the same premise: Guy/girl from our world falls into fantasy realm where knights pilot giant robots. However, those two shows had some advantages. Dunbine's music was better (not just the theme song, but the BGM too), and the character writing seems to be superior. I mean, the protag doesn't even blink when he finds out he's been reincarnated and fits right in immediately with no culture shock whatsoever. In Dunbine, on the other hand, there's a lot of plot revolving around the hero's desire to return to Earth. Escaflowne didn't have quite as strong a plot (IMO) This wouldn't be so bad if Ernesti had been given some reason he'd have wanted to leave his old life behind (aside from a love of giant mecha), but there's no indication of any of that. Maybe we'll see in later episodes, though. And one more criticism: Back on Earth, our protag dies in a very ridiculous way. He gets hit by a car...but the scene is animated in such a way that our guy just stands there without moving a muscle as the vehicle bears down on him. He didn't look scared, in fact, he didn't even try to move out of the way, like the whole "Deer in headlights" thing! XD

With all that said, though, I stand by my assessment of the show as okay--on the higher bounds of okay, at least so far. I've wanted a fantasy mecha show for some time, because I loved Aura Battler Dunbine, and Knights and Magic looks like it'll scratch that itch, even if it can't beat Dunbine (or Escaflowne). The animation is solid. Not nearly as good as Escaflowne's, but definitely on the good side of average. Nowhere near as bad as, say, Berserk! XD The mecha design also isn't as good as Escaflowne's nor as distinctive as Dunbine's, but it gets the job done. The characters aren't exceptional, but they're likable enough; Ernesti seems like a pretty cool hero. He's very feminine in appearance, but thankfully doesn't have a complex about it, which earns him points in my book. Another famous mecha protagonist, Kamille from Zeta Gundam, had a girly name and physique and was really pissed off about it, so I'm glad Ernesti is more laid back.

In terms of the action...again, pretty good! Probably the best part of the show, IMO. There's some decent mecha action with the Knight Silhouettes versus the giant monsters (big bugs, giant ape-type things, and so on), but I actually like the swordplay better. Ernesti and his friends can fly around with their magic and wield these nifty little gun-sword things, and that was pretty cool. So all in all, I'm not blown away, but I am satisfied. And for those of you who want an age-rating: I think this show looks to be appropriate for teens. There's not much blood (the monsters kill a horse early on and you see some blood, but that's it) and no fanservice/sexual content. So yeah, this seems like a pretty standard, inoffensive show if you've got a younger friend who likes mecha. I think I'll keep watching this :D

Yeh, I just watched the Castlevania anime.

I kinda feel for Dracula. Come on, that's how any ordinary men would react. You don't need to be evil or a devil itself to be that angry about your wife's innocent death. Then I would suggest that Trevor and Sypha, abut especially Alucard, they have a mind of a real, existing saint to even forgive those filthy, brainless scumbag peasants. Seriously, anyone except Trevor, the speakers and Dracula's family is an bunch of retards that deserves more pain then what they have got.

Yeah. Those peasants deserve it. At the end, they should be worshipping Trevor's hunting party, not their fake 'god', that apparently hates how his own world runs.

Really like the new approach to Trevor. he's so badass. I also liked how the show demonised the rotten church. I seriously don't understand why that Sypha works for the church, when the church killed her family and went for her life in the original series. Again, how on hell that church is a good side when they started the entire thing for their cause.
But, the best thing I got was Sypha. Her character was made in 1989. We had to wait for 28 years for another correct 'badass magician' representation of her character and most importantly, her clothing. You know, not tights, not miniskirts, the big blue robe with typical ranger hood.

In one sentence, instead of a 'Saturday morning anime that FucKonami gave us idk 12ish years ago, they gave me a Friday night Anime.

Stopped the Sgt Frog at 8 episodes, jumped into Gugure! Kokkuri-san. Far more funnier, and evenly paced comedy anime.  Only 12 episodes, but loads more humor than Sgt Frog.


And finished Gugure in 2 days, so much better, so good, that I finished it quickly (I'd love to see another season of this with the slightly dark humor in it).

Haibane Renmei turned me off from anime, and I mean that in a good way. Everything else seems so 'safe' by comparison, so calculated... There's truly no other anime quite like it. Nothing else tore at my soul in such a compelling way. I'm currently watching it for a 3rd time and still picking up on details that I missed previously. It's slow, it's subtle, and it's very powerful. I can't recommend it enough - it's an absolute gem.

To LOVE-Ru, one episode in, reminds me of Urusei Yatsura, just not as long, and the guy isn't a womanizer like Ataru was. Also first 2 episodes of the new season of Gintama. It's pretty much covering arcs before the last 2 serious arcs, but this one returns to the humorous side of Gintama, so not as much violence and bloodshed. 2018 is targeted as the airing of the final arc of Gintama, which is not done in the manga just yet. I'm gonna miss this show when it's over, I've done over 300 episodes of it, and other than the 2 serious arcs (and I mean a complete 180 of the humor laden arcs, tons of bloodshed, violence, and deaths), the laughs never stop coming.

I literally just finished Re:Zero a few days ago. I thought it was an amazing show.

The more I watch To LOVE Ru, the more I think it should've just been called Tits and Ass, because every episode, there's lots of it. I've seen some harem/ecchi anime, but this is probably the most nudity I've seen in one series, to the point you come to expect it. Must've been some horny ass guy/guys producing this one. It developed a story in the second season, first season started with story, went random, then characters jump in from out of the blue (guess they expect me to read the manga, nah I won't), and BOOM a story develops that has no real conclusion in season 2. There is a 3rd season, but I doubt it carries over.

More random thoughts while watching Hellsing Ultimate:

Amusing how Integra keeps being referred to as "Sir" Integra; is this some sort of a Japanese misunderstanding of how English honorary titles work or a joke at Integra's masculine personality? Because last time I checked, if she's a woman, she should be Lady Integra.

Also, funny how almost everybody in this anime wears glasses. Alucard, Integra, Anderson, Walter, the Major, Luke Valentine... It appears that the creators really like how glass shines in a dim light. Otherwise, everybody's vision in that world is awful.

I think it's a  allegory or "joke" about Integra's androgynous traits. I used to think she were a man first time a saw her.

Did D4 Princess. 25 episodes, 7 minutes a pop. Good show, and they managed to cram quite a bit in those minutes. Of course it's another comedy anime that at the end goes dead serious, those are hit and miss with me. I never tend to do mech anime's (like Sakura Wars), or serious anime too much, or in succession (sometimes they tend to drag). Comedy is a different story, but stuff like High School DXD I turned away from after 6 episodes, I like boobs and all (not the cartoon kind though), but it seemed the focus was on that, and demons, seemingly equally. Only the 3rd anime I started, said to hell with, and found something more interesting to watch. Doing Maruko Chan episodes on Youtube right now (subbed up to episodes 58, episode 56 is oddly missing as the person may not have found that episodes to sub yet).

Also doing Detatoko Princess (an OVA), have been on a string of 90's anime that I can find, would do more 80's stuff too, but that is extremely hard to find. Have all episodes of Magical Taruruto-kun, but sadly, no one's ever subbed them, so all the ones I have are in raw format.

Osaka makes that anime, without her it's not nearly as funny. She plays off everyone so well. Azumanga eventually lead me to Nichijou, and since then I've found nothing on the level of humor these 2 have, sure there was Bobobobobo, but it had a different kind of humor to it.

Last "new" anime I watched was Aggretsuko. I'm just not into anime like I used to be. I get bored of the silence in my "man cave" (I use quotes because I have a shelf full of Hello!Kitty plushes and stuff behind me), so I'll occasionally put some of the VHS tapes I copied off back in high school and college into the VCR while I work on my computer. I recently watched Slayers, Withering Continent, and the Ninja Gaiden movie. Well, I let them play in the background more than anything; I wasn't paying too much attention to them, except Slayers because that was one of the first 4 anime I ever rented and I fell in love with it instantly. Probably going to pop in Vampire Princess Miyu tonight. That was another of the first 4. That also included Urotsukidouji (another of my faves, probably for the same reason). I can't remember what the fourth one I rented was... I'm sure if I looked through my tapes, I might recall it, but I doubt it. That was 23 years ago...

I would have ALL Ty Hello!Kitties, but I restrained myself. Some I just felt weren't even worth it. Most of the ones here were sold at a grocery store near me. They don't carry them anymore, but every holiday season I look for them (to no avail).

The Kitty backpack (by the tv) and rug (down in front), coin bank, and ornament were gifts from my old roommates. The chia pet, cards, mugs, pez dispensers, and totoro were gifts from my fiance.

Castlevania Season 2 is awesome without doubt.

Happy Sugar Life ruined my motivation of caring about new anime series. Then I was dealing with the X Challenge crap in Mega Man X Legacy Collection and such. The Day of Sigma OVA in HD clarity is a nice touch BTW.

But he was otherwise in the day of sigma which talks place before the first MMX game. I don't know what the hell Capcom was thinking by doing that.

What I don't get is why they didn't just include the whole Maverick Hunter X, this looks like they half assed the job of presenting a commercial product like this. This is unforgiving in any time.

I have the manga (both sets...I hope there's only two chapters lol), that one wall scroll, the Sega Saturn game, and somewhere I have a ROM of the SNES game. I like CLAMP's manga for the most part, but if I had the anime for something already, even if it was a fansub, I tended to not buy the manga, so no Angelic Layer manga, for example. Now I have an urge to watch Angelic Layer again...

Well, Sailor Moon has had all 5 seasons redubbed, something far more accurate than the original, and the original never got to season 5.

Fan subs can sometimes be absolute garbage, ala Mitsume ga Tooru, which had some of the worst English subs I've ever laid eyes on, though it was English subbed by Russians. Same with Spirit Hero Wataru, the movies are subbed fine, the anime, oy vey. You'll want to tear hair out by how bad it too is subbed.

Rewatched Hellsing Ultimate. Rewatched the first half of Panty & Stocking while finally finishing off the other half, and gonna do the same with Space Dandy next.

Anime is for losers.

Cowboy Bebop, subbed version, because I never caught all the dubbed version, and Faye Valentine will be a familiar voice (Ranma female version, Lina Inverse, and Himiko Shinobibe from Mashin Hero Wataru).


If anime is for losers, I've been losing a lot catching up on years of not really having access to anime then. The last 5-7 years, one series after another, old and new.  ;D

Cowboy Bebop wrapped up, damned great anime, a true classic.

Now on to a silly one, Goldfish Warning.

Shokugeki no Soma Fifth Plate! Yes! I'm sure after this the entire manga series is done.

Shocking breakout of the season for me is: Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta... (My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!)
Wahahahahaha! Super funny!

I've been giving the anime adaption of the Manga Grand Blue a try. Sadly it doesn't contain all that is in the manga (for some ridiculous reason the anime adaptions like to shorten things a bit just for time slots or whatever) but it is still funny to watch  ;D

Shokugeki no Soma Fifth Plate!

I’m a big fan of this anime, I’ve seen the whole thing. I haven’t finished the manga though.

Recently finished season 1 of My Hero Academia. Also been getting lots of recommendations for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, might start watching that soon.

I've been reading this one. It's a bit odd in places but for some unknown reason I can't put it down.

As far as I know, the anime is faithful to the manga. The conclusion (last arc) of the manga will be the current ongoing season.

Stop Stop Hibari kun, a rarity from 1983, rarity because the whole thing is subbed online (stuff from that era is not easy to find complete). It involves a boy whose mother died, and one of her former lovers, a yakuza head, takes him in. He falls in love at first sight with Hibari......except Hibari is a trap, the only son of 4 children of the mafia head. This one looks to have plenty of hijinx in it.

I binge watched Darwin's Game. I loved it. I liked how smooth the animation was. I can't wait for the second season.

Copy pasted the premise from wiki: 17-year old Kaname Sudō accepts an online invitation by a friend to play an app game called Darwin's Game, unbeknownst to him that it involves a fight between life and death. Those who play the game are given a Sigil, an ability that varies from player to player. Trapped in this game of relentless murder and conquest, Kaname determines to clear the game, and seek out and kill the Game Master.

Finally watched Kimi no na wa/ Your Name after postponing it for years. LOL
It's really good. Reminds me of Ghibli movies.

Another one from 1983, one of the early magical girl anime's, Creamy Mami, the Magic Angel. 52 episodes long, hopefully a more satisfying ending than Hibari Kun, which also had an abrupt ending in it's manga form.
