It's rather generic and it's full of fan service but overall the characters are good enough that they aren't annoying and it has lots of guns and blood.

Sounds like it would be in the likeness of something like Blood the Last Vampire or Hellsing...

Ehhh, not sure what I would anticipate of it.

I would be more drawn into the idea if it felt more like a more traditional zombie fiction, otherwise no sale.

It's a lot more like Dawn of the Dead, Dead Rising, or Left 4 Dead

It's a zombie survival fiction. It has the neat element of them gathering resources and using wits to survive. The story and the characters just don't have a lot of meat on them.

Maybe it'll just be pleasing enough for the novelty. I'll probably observe it at some point anways.

Speaking of which, what should I watch after I finish Cowboy Bebop? I was considering watching Neon Genesis Evangelion, but I've heard mixed views on it. There's the one half that says it's one of the best animes ever made, then the other half that says it's a pretentious and overrated piece of crap. What's your view on it?

I think Bokurano is a lot better. Its another anime where kids are controlling a giant robot, but its a lot sadder, since the kids take turns piloting the robot and everytime the battle is finished the pilot dies.

I have tried watching NGE 2 times, but i got bored of it on both times.

I find that alot of what is being presented there has already been done before. A majority of it features highschool students, demons , and alot of "supernatural" themes which I believe I've seen way too often.

That is because in Japan, this is considered more relatable and a lot more appealing than some 35 yr old, washed up somebody chasing some crazy murderer. Shonen Jump has a huge influence, not only in Japan, but throughout the world, so chances are, if one anime creator/director creates a mega-hit {Naruto}, another one will be coming in fresh off the studio to our TVs and DVDs, {Bleach.}

None of these seem to be taking many risky, innovative material. The zombie fiction anime seems intriguing to me though.

I would agree with you somewhat, but the general demograpic for anime for most places outside Japan is around 13 to just below 30. Although series like Hellsing and Monster are able to attract some of the younger demograpic, even if it is generally filled with gore and sexual references.


Also, is that another new Digimon series? I thought they already released one in Japan not too long ago, unless it's that one.

Oh dear god, Digimon was a rip-off of Pokemon, and a bad one at that. If they did release another season, It was more than likely, a futile cash grab to milk the series more than nessacary, Inyuasha, i'm looking in your direction about this.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Hey fellas, I know I'm not a familiar face around these parts, but I just wanted to toss my two cents.

I just finished Kurokami today (the dubbed version - the English voice acting was superb compared to your more typical examples, imo), overall I really loved it. I could say a ton about it, but what I was really impressed and enthralled by was the character development and the plot. I didn't really like the battle system at first, seeing as Keita's role was so passive and he himself rubbed off on me as being so wimpy for a good portion of the episodes - but later I grew to appreciate it more as he grew stronger and became more committed and involved in the struggle. But most of all, Kuro really made the anime. Just her personality and her character as a whole was simply uplifting and kept me on my seat. A cute girl who's kind, loyal, and loving, and can kick some serious ass at the same time? Can't beat that, amirite?

The ending was also wonderful and I'll try my best to avoid any spoilers. The resolution to it all was so bittersweet, it gave me chills.

Personally, I'd highly recommend this to anyone who hasn't watched it. Normally I'm not much for the fantasy genre from past experience, but Kurokami really changed my perspective on things. I just might have to pick up the manga, and that's going completely against my nature (as I'm not much of a book person in any way, shape, or form). It just left that big of an impression on me.

God, I'm still kinda feeling all floaty from the ending.... (@____@)

In addition to watching Bleach and InuYasha, I'm watching Cowboy BeBop again. Spike is one badass mother fucker.

Due to it being by the same makers of Cowboy BeBop, I'd recommend Samurai Champloo. I've been meaning to watch through the series myself.

Anyone planning on going to any conventions this year? I've just ordered my tickets to "Animenext" and can't fucking wait.

The Anime Club doesn't need to be as shit as you think it is.

It is only recently that it began this mindless terrible posting again.

Yeah, I was actually really surprised to find out that the main character was voiced by the current voice actor for Sonic. Who would have thought that it would have been possible for him to do a good job for once?

My crew was in exactly this situation and we blew it. Four years of being a part of that club, and it got locked just like that for being too spammy. I'm not trying to suck up or impose, that's far from my motives to post this. but I'd hate to see one of NG's longest running crews get shut down because of the same mistake I made with the NGPD. It was such a simple error in judgment that could've been avoided.

Okay, there was a little bit of a lapse of judgement on our part and a brief episode of chit posts ensued. Regardless it has passed and we all got over it rather quickly.

So instead of dwelling on it lets drop it completely and stop pretending like it will be a continued problem.

Anyway...

I recently watched this video about Cyborg 009 and I was like, 'Hey I remember that show on Toonami'. I heard though that there was an older version of the Anime.

Seeing as the Manga came out in the 70's I wouldn't be surprised.

I really hope that your holding the other threads to this same standard and your not just being a douche bag thats singling the anime club out. You expect a bunch of random people of all ages and background to come together and thoughtfully review and discuss. It would be hard to find a thread on Newgrounds that meets these requirements. Your setting your standards way too high for us but when someone makes a pile of shit like this on the BBS about eating pussy it stays untouched and becomes a popular thread. And you seem to post in the regulars club a lot; going through through two pages of that thread they seem like they might be worse then us in there responses. I can only speak for myself but I am doubtful that anything would happen other then Newgrounds loosing a few of its users and a different forum gaining some users if you locked the anime club.

While I agree that if this thread is to be locked for off topic posts, the regulars lounge should as well due to that being solely made up of off topic posts, the quality of the posts in this thread in recent times has not exactly been very high.

The sheer volume of awful one line posts with no relevance to anything has been staggering.

Going off topic shouldn't be grounds for a lock, but going off topic in such a terrible way as can easily be construed as 'spam' is another matter.

I'm not saying that I'm a golden standard of poster that doesn't contribute to the problem at all. But what I am saying though is that it's mostly KermitTheMuppet's fault.

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.

FYI.

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.
