Just saw the first episode of arakawa under the bridge. Pretty boss. Heroman was pretty sweet too. Arakawa under the bridge had this whole SZS humor thing going for it. In a good way. Heroman turned out to be exactly what I thought it would be. In a good way.

I'm looking forward to this anime season.

Yeah, I guess you could say that.
I was only able to get my hands on 4 of the 7 volumes before Del Rey pulled it from the shelves, but from what I've read there were plenty of liberties taken (e.g. Nicola and Lucia run a bathhouse in the manga and a hotel in the anime) and there was quite a bit of sexual content either dumbed down or removed altogether. On a side note, there were plenty of Splash references to hold my attention.


If they're planning to edit it, dumb it down for 4kidsTv... that's going to either be really funny and/ or really stupid. Especially since it's supposed to be a sexual harem series. :P

As I said before, those rumors are mostly bogus, as 4Kids has been hemorrhaging money over the past few years and now fast being delisted from the New York Stock Exchange. There's no way in Hell they'd have enough money to spend on all the cuts, voices and stuff they're known for doing.

p.s. 4Kids TV no longer exists, as the company's contract with Fox expired in 2008; they now run The CW 4Kids (what used to be Kids' WB).

Man, I am sick of series based around a group of high school girls.

Now that I'm out of high school, I'd just feel creepy watching them. Not to mention high school girls going about their day to day lives isn't usually particularly interesting subject matter.

Man, I just finished the first episode. Blahhhhhhhhhh. It was a letdown. I don't remember if k-on was always like this, but parts were just very very boring. The op and ed were both worse than last season. It just didn't feel right for me. I think I'll stick to Working! for my moe this season. Actually thinking of dropping k-on. Depends on the next episode. Definitely won't rewatch this episode with subs.

It was the legit stream from the japanese channel that it was airing on. Shit's done by now, but trust me, you're not missing out on much.

Meh, it's anime. I totally get what you mean, but I kind of remember k-on being more fun than it is right now.

Next on my watch list is angel beats. Hopefully this is going to be better. I'm really hoping that it isn't another "11eyes" anime.

So, how weeaboo am I, on a scale from 1 to 10, when I'm writing my thesis on the Finnish anime fan culture? I'm going to mostly consentrate on the fandom reaction to Silver Fang, Full metal Alchemist and Axis Powers Hetalia.

I have noticed a pattern with Desert Punk during the first four episodes.

The episodes with Junko, the large breasted woman, are significantly worse than the episodes without her.

Eh, I didn't really like soul eater that much. I kind of liked the concept, and I think it's a good concept for the type of show that it is. I kind of liked it at the beginning, but as it went further and further I really started losing interest. Also, the humor was kind of corny. For a shounen to be interesting it should also accompany some sort of humor. Or something.

Nah

I'm on episode 9 of gurren lagann. I feel ashamed I haven't watched it sooner. especially since it's one of the few shows where the dub isn't complained about. they got a few barrels worth of voice talent in that thing. I swear I recognized half of the cast on voice alone. plus the show itself is just epic. the characters are interesting too.

Epic, huh?
It could've been much better, namely if Kamina had lived longer than he did...

I must have missed something because I found the show to be 'okay'. I found Simon annoying and Kamina was just another stereotypical big brother with a loud mouth whose death really didn't have any staying power with me.

It's like the whole Eli Vance thing all over again where everyone Bawwws about some character who I couldn't have cared less about. I simply stopped watching the show regularly because Simon's emo act kinda ticked me off after a while.

Half way through with the Manga of it, and waiting for my DVD of it to get in the mail, it's not bad I like it but it-to me looked misleading by looking at the front, I didn't think it was so perverted until later I realized it was made by the same guy who made Love Hina.

I think there are some out there; you might find one on /f/. (WARNING: most Bleach-or other anime-related Flash are pornographic, so if that's not what you're looking for, I don't know what to say.)

I still want to know what the hell was going through their heads when they decided that Endless Eight would be a good idea. I can understand them doing two or three episodes as a joke, but doing eight entire episodes seems like a huge slap to the face. Not only that, but it seems like the entire concept was a huge waste of money and man power. I feel sorry for the animators that had to recreate the same scenes over and over.

I never did bother watching the entire second season, but maybe some day I'll come back to it.

Well, here's what I have to say about Endless Eight:

When they initially started the "second" season of Haruhi for broadcast in Japan, they were also re-airing the entire first season as well, and only one episode was released each week. So, to those who watched the broadcast as it came, they were able to actually sort of bear through each iteration of Endless Eight, while also being able to pick out the few things changed per episode. And, because the originals were showing as well, they were able to kind of tie the story all together.

But, to those of us over here in the West who most likely watched the episodes on some online website, and very likely at a rate faster than just once a week, it became really boring to see the same sort of thing, over and over again. So really, the main problem with it was the execution in bring it to the Westerners and those who were not able to watch the original broadcast. It's one of those moves that a company makes that seems like a risky idea, but might profit off at sometime. And hey, you know how many Haruhi fans are out there who will eat anything up...

There's no reason for me to watch Sonic X as well... it's Sonic X. 4 Kids or otherwise.

I can barely make out what you're saying in that video, but if you don't like Sonic X, you don't have to.
True, it left a few things to be desired...

Sup newgrounds. I've caught up on most of the new series that came out this season and here's my 2 cents. In all honesty, this is the most promising anime season I've seen since I've started watching airing anime.

Heroman- Fucking yes. The first 2 episodes looked very promising. The fight scenes weren't that great, but they weren't bad either. Who the fuck could complain when you see a giant robot punching an alien cockroach in the face? Really fun anime, especially if you dig comic books.

K-on- Mehhhhhhhhh. Nothing much to say here. I didn't really find the first episode that great. The first season had me smiling the whole way through, but I didn't really get much from the first episode. I'll keep watching, but I'm not really expecting much.

Working!- This is where you slice of life fags should go this season. Not really my cup of tea, but I'll probably watch the second episode when it comes out. Very "otaku" friendly.

Angel Beats- I can see why so many people hate this anime, but I'm fucking loving it so far. True, it's nothing deep, legendary, or even meaningful, but it's fucking funny at times. It gives me a couple laughs, guns, asplosions, and a video game-ish world. I don't see the big problem with this anime that everyone's trying to rag on it for. I distinctly remember this one part in the second episode where this bitch is telling clannadmanv2 how she died, and at first it was a tear jerking story about how her siblings were killed. A couple seconds later, she explains she died tripping down a staircase with a vase. I fucking cracked up.

Arakawa under the bridge- Great. Shaft gets too much shit for the good quality shows that they put out. Everyone was expecting some pretentious wannabe comedy and they got a wacky romantic-ish comedy. Really, give the first episode a shot. Watch the whole way through. If you don't laugh at the last "drawer" gag of the episode, you have no sense of humor.

Senko no Night Raid- Honestly, this was supposed to be one of my favorites this season, but the first episode had me kindasorta disappointed. It was pretty much what I expected, but at some parts the horrible voice acting threw me off. Really, I was laughing at how they were laughing. I'll keep watching, but I'm not expecting much after the first episode.

Giant Killing- Fuck yes. Totally badass. Idgaf if you don't like soccer; you should check this out. It sweats, spits and jizzes manliness.

Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou- Alright, if you don't like the typical "Ecchi magic school" concept, this shit's not for you. If you do like the other 123498 anime in this genre, you should check it out.

B Gata H Kei- This is the cancer that's killing anime, and I fucking love it. The whole anime is perverted. It's really about some sloot main who wants to sleep with 100 guys. If you like perverted comedy in your anime, this is the one for you. If not, look somewhere else.

Lilpri- Don't watch this shit. Really, it's worse than shugo chara.

I just finished downloading Rainbow episode 1, and I'll get back to you guys for this one. I really have high hopes for this series. I also still need to check out Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan. I haven't seen a samurai anime in a minute.

Anyone have any suggestions on what I should look out for this anime season? I'm open to any suggestions if you can give me a decent reason.
