I am seeing Asian version of Starship Troopers stamped so hard on this. Mobile infantry suits GOO!!! Thank you guys for your input. Gonna go off and grab these. It is really amazing how much I've missed from relying on 'Murican television. Gonna have to run over to one of those anime streaming sites once I get some decent internet and don't have to rely on boxsets.

Definitely. It's more serious, though.

I'm generally in the same boat, in that the anime series I've enjoyed most have been more focused on real life type situations rather than the fantasy stuff. One that I enjoyed the most was Welcome to the NHK. It's basically about this guy who's a hermit (rarely leaves his apartment) and a girl who's taken it upon herself to change him. Really enjoyed it.

I'm definitely going to try that out now. It's been too long since I've sat down to watch anime, as I've practically been boring myself by watching the same generic stuff after a while. That one sounds promising. Thanks!


Oh hai.

I watched Sword Art Online 2 last night. The first episode was mostly talking and very little action.

Considering that it was an introduction episode, they figured that they would get the exposition out of the way and get to the action in the next episodes. Though in all this, it kind of makes me wonder how do they let VR devices that could potentially kill you out in the market in the first place? Other than rule of drama, of course.

Could be worse, what if their bodies ends up changing?

I just binged on both seasons of Gantz and I thought it was hands-down excellent. While the action scenes were admittedly terrible (someone throws acid at you, let's have a monologue while the acid flies through the air in slow motion but don't get out of the way) I was really drawn in by the extreme cynicism and grittiness that went beyond anything I'd seen in anime before.

One of the things that I found to be an incredible accomplishment was that I finished both seasons having some form of dislike for literally every single character that appeared, whereas other series created a sense of cynicism by targeting an innocent character (Speed Grapher) or instead tried to make gray characters likeable (Black Lagoon).

I have a feeling that the manga for Gantz will omit some of the cheesiness from the anime, but I'm also looking for something else that has a similar amount of crapsack world in it. Any recommendations?

Guilty Crown is definitely the Anime for you.

You know why you should?

Because Guilty Crown is Terrible.

It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great, either. I agree it was a bit of a letdown, but I still think it's worth a watch.

Well, Gantz is manga first so the cheesiness is added onto the anime.

The anime was kinda dumb and the characters were annoying (especially Kurono), but the live action movies were quite good until the downer ending which wasn't in the comic sort of ruined the second movie.

Finished watching the original run of DBZ Kai. A bit sick of it now, think I'll wait a bit before watching the Buu stuff.

Probably start on Madoka Magica next.

Watched it in one sitting.

It was pretty good. Liked the concept more than the execution. Had to pause it because I was laughing so hard when Kyubey had his exposition monologue about how his species is using the angst of teenage girls as an energy source, and the ending was a bit too Evangelion-lite for me, but I enjoyed it on the whole. Fun characters and the visuals were nice.

Not sure what to watch next. Might give the original Dragon Ball a go, but only read it recently so if it's as fillerific as Z I can imagine it grating on me when I know what's coming.

Gave us the most epic fanfic as well.

With that said, feel free to check out the sequel movie, "The Rebellion". The ending pissed off many of the fans who liked Homura and you can guess why.

Also, Kyubey gets mindraped.

It wasn't as sad as everybody says it was (I think they tried a bit too hard), but it had a really satisfying ending.

I honestly did not shed a single tear throughout the entire series. My heart must be a stone.

heh. I'm not familiar with that show, but that reminds me of when I got some anime DVD (can't remember which) for Christmas one time when I was younger and my sis was like "oh great, more violent porn". I protested the implication, but in my head, I was kinda thinking "hmm... ". lol. Some of those B '80s - early '00s OVAs/straight-to-video anime were pretty perverted.

ARE YOU SERIOUS?!? The ending was a total cop-out! Its all like "Oh dont worry, y'know those last 6-8 episodes that were all depressing? They were all a dream! Nobody died, and everyone is happy. The end."

I mean seriously. I like the anime, I do, but that ending felt like a total cop-out
