Hey guys and girls, we need to talk.

I watched Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of the Evangelion again and I still hate it.

I loved the television series (up to episode 21 anyway) and the film has great animation and dialogue. The directing was also brilliant. However the film was so unpleasant to watch. The Commandos killing civilians, the Evas being ripped apart, characterss I love in the series being brutally killed off.

The third act of the film was terribly pretentious and just ridiculous.

Does anyone else think it should of ended differently? Or perhaps you liked the film?

I don't want to start an argument, I'm just sharing my opinions.

Note I've seen this film three times over the past 4-5 years and I understand around 75% of what was going on.

Baby Britain.

EoE was a complete piece of shit.

I was hoping it'd be really revolutionary and cool, but it ended up being a dull pile of shock imagery and forced irony.

"Komm Susser Tod" is a cool song and all, but was that really necessary, Anno?

Off topic, not in your club at all, but do you guys know where I can see or get the English Sub/ Dub version of Cyborg 009 of the internet? Also, anybody else love that show?

I do

We do not discuss piracy here.

Unless we're talking about One Piece or Black Lagoon. But thats a different type of piracy.

Ok... Noob mistake on my part.

Well, I also wanted to know what Anime fans thought of the series. I mean, I loved that show, just curious if anyone else out there liked it.

Didn't like it whatsoever when I was a kid, doubt I will now.

Planning on checking out Soul Eater today, sounds mildly interesting so why not.

This isn't some sort of elite club filled with exclusive members.

It's a thread.

It says 'club' in the title, but it's just a discussion thread.

You don't need to feel like you're part of anything. You just need to discuss some stuff and hope other people will carry on the dialogue.

Just do what I do in 'clubs'; waltz in and act like you've been there from the start.

Also, to the guy with the anime list: you clearly don't have much idea of how that site works. 44 currently watching anime and five that are finished? Either you really can't commit, or you need to sort out your stuff. Also, how can you be currently watching Perfect Blue? Did you just stop it halfway through and never come back to it?

If you're going to post your anime list like a CV, at least try to organise it a little. I can't tell at all what you like from that.

I should probably marathon the rest of Baccano during the weekend, since I'll be unable to use this computer for a while since next monday. Akagi will have to wait.

I just started off Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo.

It seems pretty good, if a little bizarre.

I'm not a big fan of the green screen textures they've got going on, but otherwise the art and animation are good.

I'd really have loved to sit in on the pitch of the show, though.

"Okay, it's an anime adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo."
"Sounds a little boring, make it more interesting."
"Okay... Uh... The Count is... Some sort of vampire?"
"Go on..."
"And it's... Uh... Set on the moon?"
"Sold!"

Overall, I'm interested.

Guys. I'm looking to follow another manga or two. Are Psyren, Fairy Tail, and Beelzebub good choices?

Gundam Unicorn's staff was announced, shit looks promising. Good to see a lot of Birdy staffers here, and Kumiko Takahashi as character designer was a pleasant surprise.

Also, delicious Audrey.

I so need to watch that too. Everytime I hear despair in pretty much any anime, I am reminded of that fact.

Any movie with Hitler is a good movie.

Anyway, four more episodes of Baccano to go.

So, continuing Ideon at a slow pace... too much GRIMDARK makes me watch at a slow pace. It's amazing, but holy shit Tomino, I don't even wanna imagine was Be Invoked will look like... I just know it'll be better than that faggotshit End of Eva.

That said, in addition to watching that show, I am rewatching Dragonball Z (The Ocean Group Dub). Yeah, I am a fanboy for them, plus I grew up with it. It also has that bitching theme song. Why am I watching DBZ? I really have no other reason than Nostalgia, and the fact that I really like the Abridged series by TeamFourStar.

I just developed an unhealthy addiction to GTO, and you have to tell me about this fantastic piece of win? I am going to well and truly have no life. My party is going to kill off my level 5 rogue! The DM was going to let me complete all the requirements to multiclass as an assassin as soon as we cleared this dungeon filled with devils, ogre's, hydra's, berzerkers, and wizards.

Stupid evil party, trying to rule the D&D world. Stupid, evil DM that ruins every plan of ours that he finds out about.

Anyway, off to find Count of Monte Cristo Fucking Awesomeness.

Just preordered next month's Gundam Ace.

The leaked scans are terrible quality, so I want to see all this delicious new Unicorn production art in glorious ink n' paper.

Plus the free T-shirt and 650 yen price didn't hurt.
