Jesus christ, there's a different between chat in a lounge, and picture spam here. And don't even try to compare a thread in general with one here

discussion is fine, relaxed discussion is fine.

heck, i dont speak for malachy or any other mods but i'm fine with most chit chat.

but just pages of people posting unrelated pictures?

Well, ofttimes a still from an anime series used to punctuate a certain statement can add a certain tone that is not possible with simple text. So they are not always unrelated.

And their ability to make reading certain posts more interesting leads me to believe that they are not inherently a bad thing.

I won't say I'm alien to irrelevant picture spamming here, granted I'm going to stop as I don't want this thread locked down. But if a few members continue, I'd hope you guys wouldn't lock the thread, as it wouldn't be fair if the entire group pays for a few members who refuse to stop posting spam.

And as Aigis just posting out, it's not always random pictures with unrelated text.

I love Kemonozume. That show is amazing.

Anime is awesome! This club just got a new member.

Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Inyuyasha and Shin Chan are by far my favorites. DBZ, Naruto and Inyuyasha are awesome and action packed and Shin Chan is funny as hell!

Of course you can join, though why not introduce yourself, let us know what some of your favorite series are.

Welcome yet another knew member, I've yet to see Naruto (despite it being so popular) but InuYasha and DBZ have been some of my favorite long running series for some time now.
Have any opinion on Bleach?

Also, to the group, fucking Cowboy BeBop man, that show never gets old. Hooked on it yet again.

I would buy anime, but it's way too fucking expensive. It's completely absurd that I can buy an entire season of a regular TV show for $40 on Blu Ray, but an anime DVD that only has four episodes on it will cost me $30.

The only series I want to buy right now is Darker Than Black, but I'm not getting it untill they release it on Blu Ray.

Yeah, it's no wonder so many of them have closed down. Unfortunatly the only alternative for me is HMV, which isn't much better. But like I said, anime DVD's in general are overpriced.

I follow bleach but I don't really know why. The arches they have in bleach completely destroy the anime. They will just have you go for months with absolutely no relevant content added. I followed FMA when I was younger it was a pretty good series but it just went on too long. I have been told that Brotherhood is pretty good and the animation in it looks like it has improved so I may have to start watching that. I am about to watch Bokurano based on another users recommendation; reading the Wikipedia article it seems to have a pretty amazing story line. I am waiting diligently for Evangelion 2.0. I loved the series and Evangelion 1.0. The animation in the new movies are also really good.

I really enjoyed the anime series and it will always hold a place in my heart because it was my first anime series. I will try to be as unbiased as possible but be aware that I am not going to be able to keep it out 100%. The graphics where great if you consider the time they were released, but they are not really up to todays standards. The anime is licensed in the US by Viz media so the dubs will make you want to blow your brains out. Its not super easy finding a free high quality copy of NGE. If you do find one your not going to be able to watch anything for a couple days. It is really expensive to buy the box set and it is very rarely on Adult Swim. Shinji is kind of a whiner but he is a really interesting character. The series it self is really great in a whole if you are in to philosophy or psychology. I watched this show for the first time when I was like ten and I didn't really pick up the deeper meanings but it was still cool because there is a lot of action and it is fairly realistic; then when you watch it again when your older it is a completely different show. It is going to share a lot of themes with newer anime series because it was so successful there has been a lot of copied archetypes from it. Be aware that the first few episodes are just setting up the story so they don't really contain much content. I highly recommend you watch NGE it is amazing show that admittedly does require some thought and patience to fully enjoy.

This post has actually made me to re-watch it I haven't seen the series in almost a year XD . Also Jesus and Omorashi are two of the same.

I'm just curious, but...
Has anyone else ever gotten bored with a series before they finished it?
Today I watched some more Yatterman and Kirarin Revolution and after a couple of episodes I found that the shows barely held my interest.

That sort of happened to me with D Gray Man the manga

Though it was more of the fact that the art is oftentimes indiscernible and I cannot follow it at all

The main character kid is an indecisive cockmaster who whines incessantly, the redhead is an ultra-bitch who also whines incessantly, the blue haired chick is your standard brooding silent mysterious character (and blue hair? wtf.)

The only saving grace of this show is the fantastic mecha design and smooth animation quality. If you like giant robot battles, this is a fine show. If you watch anime for character development and drama, skip it.

Dude there is so much more to the NGE series then the mech design. Two questions did you even watch the whole series? and did you watch the subbed version?

I did both dude, and it's not a great series; infact it's mediocre at best.

Theres much more behind it then giant robots fighting dude. This show is like when you have to read a book over and over again each time you pick up a new thing. And when you mature and re-watch it there is a whole new meaning to it. I cant give you specifics about it because I haven't seen it in forever but dude if you watch it in the right eyes its like a orgasm of epiphanies. Like all of us are just what others think of us and ultimately all of are decisions and opinions are just based upon what others think of you and how others treat you and it teaches you how insignificant and how un-original you really are. It pretty much says that are bodies are just held together by are will to live and we can really change what we are (this is how the AT field works and how some of the angels have shape changing abilities). That mediocre at best anime can be so much more if you let it be if you get past the annoying characters and just think of the premise behind it. You will most likely love it or hate it there is a pretty small margin of in between on this anime. I would say at the very least watch the first 6 episodes if you are still not enjoying it then don't continue. Sure im a little bit biased but watching it and trying it out wont hurt you dude. So again I am going to say yes please watch it :P

looks like we have a lot to fix with you...

Negima < Love Hina

FMA < FMA: Brotherhood

Fruits < Moldy socks

Bleach and Soul Eater are the same so cancels out. Try Ranma 1/2 VS Inuyasha

Seeing how you're into Shojos and what not try Rozen Maiden? It's pretty damn good.

btw, i think this is the third time of mod intervention or so. lol good times.

Hello, my esteemed colleges in MY most disorganized club. I have finally returned once again from a most uncalled for obstacle, but I AM BACK!

I did not mention so, but I have been re-watching Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory to refresh my memory before I begin watching the famous Zeta Gundam. Overall, I really liked the events that took place in 0083 and I'm appreciating how it really emphasized the efforts and plots of the Zeon. I liked the cast, the animation, the actual technology and it had a great buildup and a nice twist. I am glad I re-watched it.

Also, It is good to see that you have all returned to the efforts into MAKING THIS CLUB THE BEST ONE IT COULD BEE!

No back seat modding on my club, either contribute properly or GET OUT.

Also, claymore sure was... average. A pretty typical story, little interest and the characters had nothing going for them.

Isn't BASTARD!! a seinen series with a similar fantasy setting? I heard that may be good.

Relax I was just kidding

If you want I can elaborate

Essentially Claymore is Berserk with chicks but if you said that to anyone who likes Berserk and they would probably rage and call you an Oscar Wilde.
