It's probably the most frighting and haunting show that I have ever seen, one that I will never forget.

Not Really, it had it's moments, but it's really nothing more than a slightly more psychological version of Gantz. And it's called Elfen Lied, BTW.

Mainly because it horrifies me how many people actually think it's a 'deep' series.

It was supposed to be about the violent side of humanity, especially Lucy started to kill all those guards and shit, but after that it just sprialed downhill into borderline angst and all around disdain for people in general.

If you want horror and massive carnage with a decent story, might I suggest Violence Jack instead.

They have too many mediocre video contributors. Almost all of them are very boring and generic videogame or movie reviewers with a stale sense of comedy. The only guys that i like are the Cinema snob and the Nostalgia critic, altough i don't like the Bum reviews series which is just the same joke over and over again or his Old vs new videos.
Linkara managed to come up with a few amusing videos, but now he's trying to incorporate some bullshit "storyline" into his show.

Agreed, the Blisteered thumbs part is too big and usually redundant, but hey, it's supposed to cater to different tastes, and give performers the admins think worthy, a chance in the limelight.

Linkara managed to come up with a few amusing videos, but now he's trying to incorporate some bullshit "storyline" into his show.

I think the storyline in AT4W is pretty silly, but it's a fun condiment. And his reviews ARE pretty great.

And yeah, Cinema Snob (you are now reading this post in his voice) is awesome. Film Brain has potential, if he worked on his delivery a bit. NChick could be better if she made her scripts more cohorent. Spoony is a genre on his own, and it's kinda hit-and-miss, mostly because many of his videos end up so long half of it is completely irrelevant. Toddintheshadows (see his youtube channel, btw), however, is hilarious. I hope to see more of his stuff.

But on the Anime side of things. Ugh. MarzGurl, aka miss If-you're-not-made-of-money-GTFO-from-my -fandom. Masako LARGE HAM X. Y The Ruler of Time... bland. The section really needs a good caustic critic, someone who will know shit when they see it, and say it loud. Most of the fandom still lives with the insecurity that if you bash one show, you bash all anime ever.

Never seen the anime, but I've heard good very good things about it. I'll gladly pay 20 bucks to see it in theaters.

I might check the show out again. I used to have that ring of the Niebelung series of episodes on DVD when I was like 15 or so, but I didn't dig it then.

Holy shit, some people really are inbred.

Also, Pirates of the Carribbean didn't invent pirates, Halo didn't invent humans fighting aliens in space, etc. etc.

Lilkorn is bit like that girl who angrily emailed the company that made the recent remake of "Wolfman" (with Benicio Del Toro) complaining how they totally ripped off Twilight and evenn got the werewolf wrong. Words fail on how stupid that it.

That's a complete oxymoron to anyone who knows a bit about writing. There more new stuff people write, the more they intenetionally or unintentonally rip off older works.

A lot of modern anime is just copying old formulas with slightly different characters. Sure, there are good recent series (Elfen Lied isn't one), but there are also a lot of bad ones, and the reason old series might seem less original is because they've been ripped off so many times.

Also, calling Captain Harlock has-been is like saying Alfred Hitchcock's movies are bad because they're not shot in HD.

you don't understand, in new animes they should try not to rip off other series, and this is what this movie is doing. I don't care if it came out first but it's ripping it off now.

Oh gosh, that's cute.

I think most people have heard of that show, In Japan, it was called Detective Conan, if i'm not mistaken.


it was an awesome show on Adult Swim but then it got canceled :(

The show was decent, but there was so many episodes it was hard to keep up after a while.

I used to be mad into Detective Conan when they were showing it on Adult Swim. I would wait until 2 in the morning or whatever hour in the A.M it was on every day. But they should have actually ended the damn show instead of putting out like 100 goddamn episodes with no end in sight.

That's always a big problem for me, especially in Shonen Jump anime, where they go on for hundreds of episodes of filler and pointless side-quests. That's one the reasons I stay away from One Piece, Naruto, Yu-gi-oh, etc, they pull away from the manga storyline, and try to fill it with other stuff which has little to do with anything.

Frankly, I gave up on Conan after about 90 episodes, that cow was already milked more than it's worth, and it was time to move on.

Dragonball Z was in 1989 I believe, GT was 1995. Both are quality animes (in my opinion). In fact, they are two of the best! Not so much GT than DBZ though. I'll say it, modern day animes are higher quality than 70's-90's era anime (art wise). Bleach is higher quality than Cowboy Bebop, but it's an okay anime! When you refuse to believe that some older animes are better than newer ones, then that's just stupid! Also, if I make a movie about kung-fu fighting pants, before someone else makes a show about fighting pants, I didn't rip-off them. Halo was not the first Sci-fi shooter. Doom, Duke Nukem, et cetera were.

Trust me, Yu-gi-oh is utter crap, and the 4kids dub didn't help matters any.
That's why most of my favorites are generally around 13-50 episodes, long enough to explain the story and characters, and short enough where there is no mindless filler and 1-dimentional characters that I really don't give 2 shits about.

The lesson here is: Listen to Mendou's words of wisdom to prevent your computer from getting Space AIDS and exploding because you're too much of a dick to support the industry by buying DVDs or Blurays.

This covers just about every major problem that 5 of the important characters in Yu-Gi-Oh had and I'm pretty sure that most people can agree and laugh a little about this.

Only it will be harder to fit in, because of your foreigner status. People will constantly think you're a tourist.

not true once I become one of them they will love me like one of them.

Yeah Right, I don't think they would ever believe you for a second. You do know that Japan is more than just anime, right?

If I am a teacher they will call me there sensei and their friend!

The hell you been smoking, seriously? It takes a lot more than just saying you want to be a teacher in Japan. I'm no expert on Japanese schooling, but if I remember correctly, it takes a lot of work to be a teacher, and you're also going to be responsible for them if they screw up.

Before I get sucked in anymore, I'll now take to the high road and mention something related to anime, Haruhi Suzumiya, that is all.

Not just that, it's often butchered, with the extent of damage ranging from so subtle that only hardcore fans would be able to tell the difference to so glaringly obvious a 5-year-old could point it out. The dubbing industry has a long history of trying to sneak edits past viewers and only in the past 10 years or so have we been able to catch on as easily as we have. I refuse to support an industry that baits-and-switches customers this way. And to make matters worse, there is a rapidly-encroaching threat of outright import bans, which means we as fans may be prosecuted for supporting the original work rather than the domestic distributors! This grinds my gears to the point where I can no longer stand to live in this country (amid the sea of other problems I'm also awash in). Anyone with me besides the guy who likes Korn?
