Been getting back into Hellsing, my 2nd favorite manga and favorite OVA.

If you’re in the US you can see several of the OVA episodes and the whole TV series, uploaded officially by Funimation on youtube. Though the vast majority of both are only available in their subtitled form this way, a shame considering the English dub cast is often cited as one of the best. Well, you can judge for yourself in those links if you're in the US.

I also watched the Ghost in the Shell movie for the first time (read the manga a while back) and now watching the GITS: Stand Alone Complex tv series. They’re both strictly OK so far imo. Pretty funny that the bad Latin (the repeated line of "Aeria Gloris") in the SAC opening song translates out to something like "Sister in-law's lofty things" when I believe it's supposed to mean something like "Heavenly Glory"

I wouldn’t consider myself an anime fan per se. I find it’s often even more difficult to get to the good stuff than in other media, and I’m still haunted (not really) by memories of being an 11 year old weeaboo.

I did love Outlaw Star/Gundam Wing/Blue Submarine No. 6/Gundam 08th MS Team/Sailor Moon/Ronin Warriors/Pokemon/Dragon Ball Z and the little I saw of Slayers and Dominion Tank Police as a kid. But I find only a handful of those still watchable these days. (Outlaws forever!) I’m a huge fan of the Berserk manga, which I consider the most moving book I’ve ever read. And I hope it gets a satisfying conclusion before the author dies like his inspiration (a woman who wrote the longest continuous series of fantasy novels ever recorded, 1 a month or so iirc, until her death) did. Haven’t seen the new OVAs as yet though.

Good that you mentioned this, going to fix that since I meant this too, but since I rarely read manga I tend to forget about them.

edit: fixed, feel free to talk about manga too.

Wow, you honored the first page with Hokuto no Ken. :P

Yeah, Shingeki no Kyojin seems to be that main topic everywhere on the internet, I've watched 2 episodes and need to watch the rest. They even made a parody of it because of our protests on Brazil a month ago:

I've been chipping away at Fist of the North Star for the past few years since Discotek has released the entire original series. The movie rocks my dick, but the TV show feels too much like a "bad guy of the week" episodic show where each episode kind of blends together in my mind because there's little variance.

I recently saw Angel Cop for the first time, English dubbed. SOOOOO MUUUCH PROFANITY in it, and the violence is super grotesque and elaborate. Awesome designs, cool animation, weird story (originally having the Jews as the bad guys until they changed it to an American corporation), and I wish I had it on DVD or Blu-ray.

Angel Cop Condensed!

Also I'm, uh, going through La Blue Girl a second time. >_>
Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

Moments like this that make me wants my privace back (aka a room with door, preferable lockable), since my PC is on my mom's room and my "door" is a curtain, rarely I can see NSFW material.

I live at home as well, and my sister's bedroom is across the hall. Extremely NSFW stuff I have to watch when she's either away, or when it's late and I have the volume real low.

But the thing is, I don't have a proper room; I'm in the library where I have bookshelves as walls between me and the hall and an open doorway. So there's not a whole lotta privacy, otherwise I'd lock the door and plug my headphones into the TV. :p

I like a lot of 90's Anime. While it's not 90's I watched one called Stiens Gate and was very impressed with it and recommend it to anyone who hasn't watched it.

I haven't been watching a lot of anime lately.
The most recent ones that I've watched were Uta no Prince-sama 2 and Polar Bear Cafe (I can suggest it to you guys since it is a fun comedy starring animals).
I am considering if I should watch Brothers Conflict, maybe when the entire season is done...
Yup, I am in a comedy and reverse harem mood right now. Oh and I choose shows by their voice actors.  ;)

People have suggested Psycho Pass.
Attack on Titan is getting a lot of rave, but I am not in the mood for those stories.

As for manga, I am eagerly awaiting every new chapter of Kuroshitsuji.
Oh and a lot of yaoi manga. I really love Crimson Spell and Finder. These are also still ongoing.
