Eh, I liked it. What you found unpleasant I found pleasant. It's just one of those things I found very easy to watch, and was a fun way to kill half an hour each week.

And as far as 'moeblob' goes, I wasn't affected in that show. The style of the art is 'moe', but the characters' personalities aren't. There isn't really any of the horrible childish behaviour and nonsense noises that is typical of the shitty kind of 'moe' character (God, I hate those characters).

Most of the time the characters in Lucky Star act like people.

By the way, you implied that you only watched one episode of the show. It took me around six episodes to get into it, and I hated the first episode of the show. I spent the time getting into it because at the time I needed something to do.

I dunno. I enjoyed Lucky Star.

I was introduced to Lucky Star as a recommendation for liking Kodomo No Jikan.
It wasn't long after I started watching it that I realized it had the Loli, but not the

So I stopped watching it and haven't given it a second chance.

Anyhow, I'm still rewatching Cowboy BeBop. Fucking love that series, never gets old.
I really wish I could be cool like Spike, or as powerful as Jet, but alas, I remain frail and beautiful like Faye Valentine.

When you say kill, you must really mean KILL YOUR TIME, because it sure did a good job of MURDERING MY TIME.

Hahahaha, seriously, you're talking shit.

It has awful art and animation. It is littered with a dis likable and unbearable cast. Oh, btw, it is just like every other Moe~ series. For it is unbelievably annoying, brain damage inducing, drek.

Most of the time the characters in Lucky Star act like people.

You're right, infact, they act like a bunch of typical trendy "hardcore gamers" and "anime fan" shit fangirls, who spend all their time acting RANDOM LIKE and IRONIC.

By the way, you implied that you only watched one episode of the show. It took me around six episodes to get into it, and I hated the first episode of the show. I spent the time getting into it because at the time I needed something to do.

I don't need to see more than that episode or the many awful clips. It's trash and it will always be trash.

I still can't believe I was able to force myself to sit through the entire series. I must have been desperate for something to do, because I can barely watch it for more than a minute without wanting to shoot myself.

Yes. When I said 'kill half an hour' I was actually talking about 'killing time'.

Okay. I can understand why you'd hate the art. I don't understand how you can say it has awful animation. It is a very well animated show.

I am a trendy gamer and anime fan. Sometimes I like watching shows about people like me.

I don't need to see more than that episode or the many awful clips. It's trash and it will always be trash.

Well, I liked it.

I've been working through that series at a snail's pace. I keep forgetting that I have it. Which is weird, since I really like it.

Makes me wanna get to watching Mind Game.

That movie is amazing. One of the best animated movies I've seen.

People talk about how they eat their food for 20 minutes?

Uh, fuck yes they do. If I had to count all the drawn out pointless conversations I'ev had in my lifetime it would be a very large number.

That episode was shit, though. It seemed like they were trying to do Seinfeld and failed at it.

I would probably take a pass on this, considering I don't like One Piece that much, if at all, and I'm more of a Gillette person anyway.

Guess in Japan, even anime characters can be used to shill products to the people, It's like capitalism run amok.

Now THAT is something new to me. o_o

On subject of Lucky Star, I have some really mixed feelings about it, but the dominant feelings are those of dislike. The characters were oddballed enough, but how they went along with a plotline (if you can technically make one out of this mess) was just...wrong. Not a sick or perverted wrong, just plain wrong as in not right. What scares me the most about this series is that somehow or rather, some strange force was capable of dragging me by the foot through this entire series much to my displeasure. T_T

I believe I started watching Lucky Star when it was new, then I quit after the second episode or something .. I don't think I have really watched any anime since. Coincidence?

Nope, we don't allow your kind here ;) . Anywho I really liked bokurano and I would definitely recommend it. I was kind of annoyed with all of the themes they borrowed from NGE but they put there own twist on it and they focused more on giving there characters a lot of depth and making you love them before they end up dying. I am not going to attempt describing it because I don't want to create a wall of text so just watch it...

I liked that show

I never watched the entire series in it's entirety but I saw the best episode. The walrus one was kickass and was the best example of the shows fluidity and style.

Plus it's a battle against a giant fucking walrus

Awesome, Wolf's Rain is a kickass series.

Hopefully, I will get my hands on that, along with Monster and FMA: Brotherhood box sets as well very soon.

Does anyone know a modern war anime that has nothing to do with giant robots or nuclear apocalypses? I'm trying to find a good one, but no luck.

Sucks how much some old classic series sell for now. Really glad I got my hands on FLCL and Lain before they went out of print.
As for Noein, I think it's about time I give it another chance. Everyone I know who has seen it seem to consider a great series. I played one or two episodes of it around 1-1/2 years ago and got bored with it.

I'm considering picking up Brotherhood soon, loved FMA previous incarnation.
Really want the series Hellsing Ultimate, but am holding out until they make a box set of it, rather than purchasing a few episodes at a time.
Only series I've bought individually was When They Cry.

Yes, it is actually. Perfect example right there, although it's not a modern war anime film, it depicts the experiences of two youth during WW2.

I Hate to sound like a noob and all, but what site would I use to watch it?

Actually, it's not a very good analogy. Grave of the Fireflies is a great movie, and very touching, but it's very different from All Quiet on the Western Front or any other battlefront story. The only act of war you see is the firebombing of Kobe in the beginning. The rest is the two kids in the countrysiide *SPOILER* slowly starving to death from the big brother's incoompotence at keeping house *SPOILER*.

Ah...As I said I had not actually seen the film (I would like to) but I had been under the impression that it was the story of boys forced into war and it's atrocities.

However further research shows that I was in fact mistaken to think so. It's more a story of innocence destroyed by war through the effects on those who DON'T participate.

So no running and gunning here.

All this talk about Lucky Star made me interested in checking out Kyoto Animation's more recent series, K-On.

It's mildly entertaining, but I feel weird about watching a show about high school girls now that I'm not in high school any more.
