I have the same issue with the manga too, it's now getting a little boring.

It's not even boredom, it's simply the fact that they had it set up like this would be the end and yet here they are, starting a new arc entirely.

SPOILER ALERT

I mean, he lost his powers, why are they still forcing this to keep going? It's ridiculous. They had a chance to end it and it might have turned out well. Now any ending will likely feel tacked on or awkward considering I find it hard to credit any ending other than him losing his powers and assimilating back into life.

I have similar thoughts myself, maybe I'll go back to D-Gray Man or something.

I've tried D-Gray Man, but after 200 chapters of not understanding anything that is happening, I just gave up.

Yea i'm not really sure where they are going with this but its pretty uninteresting now that Ichigo lost his powers. I am gonna read the next few chapters and if i still don't like it i'm gonna stop reading it.

Even if you disliked some of the earlier episodes of Panty and Stocking, this one more than makes up for them. WHOLE EPISODE WAS BANGING, YO

By the way, are the new episodes of Haruhi Suzumiya worth watching? I loved the first season, but it seems like the newer ones are either hit or miss.

I dropped that show a long time ago. I don't know if they've gotten better or not, but the second season really turned me off from that show. The entire Endless Eight thing was a huge waste of time both for the fans and the creators of the show. I honestly feel bad for the poor animators that had to recreate the same thing over and and over.

I have seen a little bit of season 2, and I was somewhat disappointed so far. I really enjoyed the first season of Harhui's and Co. madcap antics, and I guess I was under the impression that the second season were only going to get better. I'm sure the creators were disappointed with the Endless Eight and the overall repetiveness of the 2nd series, but maybe the other new episodes might turn it around from here.

Overall, your mileage with the 2nd season will depend of how much you love Haruhi and her antics.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I guess I'll put it off for now and read the light novels instead. Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya seems like a good film, too, so I'll watch it when I've got a chance.

Yeah, the action was definitely the best I've seen in the show so far. It's going to be tough to surpass this episode.

I watched 'The Place Promised to us in our Early Days'

I think that's what it was called

I thought it was a good movie, but to be honest I think I was a little out of it cause I kept getting lost. It wrapped up nicely at the end though, and I think I got the gist of it.

I've also been watching more Darker than Black on Netflix and it's really a pretty good series. Has some very well choreographed fight sequences.

Speaking of Darker Than Black, Funimation really needs to get off their asses and release the first season on Bluray. Also, no more of this "volume" shit, release the entire first season all at once in a single box set.

A quick question to everyone here: Does anybody know a place, whether online or otherwise, where a person can pick up and purchase the soundtracks and CDs for different anime? Like, I know that one could just go onto any website and get songs, but I'd like to actually get and collect the CDs.

Any ideas?

That or Amazon.co.jp (where I get most of my music nowadays :P), or CDJapan, Play-Asia or YesAsia.
I'd be cautious about what you find on US Amazon; some companies license anime soundtracks and re-release them with romanized tags, lyrics and whatnot. (Proof below.)
If you want unadulterated soundtracks, make sure to look for the tag "IMPORTED - from Japan."

I was wondering if you guys could help me find some anime that I used to watch a while ago although I've forgotten the name of it. I remember it was about some guy who was an android and was traveling with some woman and I think some kid. I think they were trying to look for the man who created the android and kill him, or the man who created him was trying to kill them. Something like that I'm sure.

I remember the first episode had to do with him walking down the side of the road with a guitar, and he ended up getting attacked by some robot bear thing, and he ended up killing it and saving some woman, who ends up traveling with him. I think he eventually finds another robot who says he is his brother and they travel together to find the man, although I think he ends up betraying him. A thanks in advance to whoever helps me :D

I hear way more people spouting hate for these shows than I hear people's love for them.

I don't know what it means, but you'd think people would get tired of using words like 'moeshit'.

That's because there's not much to love.
I've seen the first season of K-ON! and part of the second, and there was little to no plot. It seemed like the only thing the show was there for was to project images of the girls being teenage girls, nothing more. There were only song sequences in two episodes.

I don't know what it means, but you'd think people would get tired of using words like 'moeshit'.

It's called calling a spade a spade.

It's an okay list, except for FLCL, I thought this anime was crap overall.

And it makes me wonder why so many people are so negative against the moe style, especially when they don't explain themselves. Granted, the "kawaii" looking girls in anime today does get annoying to a point, but that's the way anime is being made now, and if anyone doesn't like it, then go back to old-school style anime then.

Some anime fans can be afraid of change sometimes.

And frankly I have to credit Kermit for declaring this the "No Moe Shit" thread, despite all he's done.

HAH! Afraid of change? More like an obvious distaste for shallow horse-piss animated programs.

I guess retard idiots like you are easily amused by shitty anime about giggly girls who play ROCK MUZUK and eat chocolates while referencing street fighter2 ! COOL!

People love to be disillusioned, that's why they buy into crap they know is easier to accept than provocative, compelling or even JUST entertainment,but at least well thought out entertainment. Hibi the sexi cupcake is correct in this case <3

The reason they are so vocal is that they're probably RIGHT.

Why is it so pathetic to want to voice a distaste and displeasure for an obviously toxic and shallow brand of anime?

Because you're devoting your time to insulting something people like even though there's really little chance of the ones that do like it going:

"Oh really? Your argument is so well thought out that I don't like this kind of anime anymore! Thank you, you have cured me!"

There's even less chance of that happening if your argument consists of "IT'S ALL KAWAII MOESHIT DESU NE~!!!" or whatever it is people say these days.

If people like something, they like it. What's insulting their tastes going to do about it other than start up pointless fights?

You know, this isn't always about simply putting people like you down. Infact, it's quite arrogant and egotistical for you to assume is the basis of these statements.

If I have a problem with the quality of an anime, I should be able to voice any dissatisfaction. That's the ONLY way that we can illustrate our thoughts. If not, then any thought is practically unvoiced and up in the air.

I guess little boys like yourself with underdeveloped minds, a lack of sophistication and a tendancy to fall for bullshit series like K-ON! and the like aren't capable of having really serious discussions. Which is why people like ME will always trash shitty clubs, such as this, which people like YOU infest.

Your opinion doesn't matter because your ideas and reasoning are utterly worthless. Please piss off, dick clown.
