Without giving away any spoilers, at least one member of the One Piece crew leave the crew at some point.

You could've grabbed it in chunks y'know, I did it a season at a time.

Hope you like it though, if you're not completely enthralled with this show by episode 15 I think you might officially have shit taste forever.

Easy, just mix every detergent you have and pour some into a cup.

After that, you drink it.

That's exactly how it felt for me when it comes to the storyline in the second half of the series which is why I dropped it several times as it constantly tries to make every villains sympathetic.

I'm glad that's over with though the sequel/spinoff will be up next year.

It's probably for the best that you don't. Though if you must, try to act all ninja-like wearing something that is totally visible from space and yell random things that end in "no jutsu". To be fair, the ninja stereotype of them wearing black was more based on kabuki theater back in the 1700's or so, and that has pretty much stuck ever since, and considering how broad the net is on what is considered ninja nowadays, it's to be expected from Naruto to follow suit.

Also, I honestly don't know too many anime that actually does the ninja warrior down to a T, historically speaking. Alas, if I was going to expect that from a medium that loves to use tropes like "rule of cool" and "willing suspension of disbelief" for all it's worth, then I'm obviously looking in all the wrong places.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Watched the first 9 episodes of Kill la Kill.

It's not Gurren Lagann, but it's pretty cool so far. I like the bits where the under age girls' clothes fall off.

She used to appear in 1990s Japanese slasher films where her purpose was to provide fan service before being murdered. It was 1996 where she got into voice acting gig.

With that, her role as Satsuki fits though her character for her I recognize the most is Ino.

I got lucky and found Case Closed episodes 1-9, holy crap it was pretty damn good. I remember watching a couple episodes before like almost 10 years ago. I checked out the series and found out that the show 1st broadcasted in Japan in 1996 and the show is still going.

Why would you want to join a club of something that you hate?

To ascend from pleb status and make a name for myself and rise through the hierarchy of Anime Club elites, infiltrating and eventually obliterating the Club from inside out.

It wasn't much of club as it have become more of a discussion thread.

I wasn't even a member myself, just that I would pop up for a conversation on several occasions.

Finished off Kill la Kill.

Fun show. Ends stronger than it started, and only had one fist in the air, screaming at the TV moment in it (Ryuko and Satsuki teaming up for the first time, where it goes into split screen for the transformations) while Gurren Lagann had one every 30 seconds or so, but I still really enjoyed it.

Lacks strong villains. Once Satsuki and the Elite Four join Ryuko there's nothing left for the rest of the show, because Harime and Ragyo are both a bit shit. Still glad they did the whole "face turn" thing, though. Works really well in Gurren Lagann with Viral and Lordgenome fighting alongside the heroes at the end, and it's just as cool here, if not cooler here.

I can also now confirm, having analysed the show with a team of scientists, that Satsuki is the best girl.

Favorite animes are Dragonball series, One Piece, Boondocks, (It's not really related to Japanese culture but what the hell) Yu-Gi-Oh, Digimon, and Beyblade.

My favourite part of Kill la Kill was actually listening to the lyrics of the "don't lose your way" song because I couldn't stop laughing for a good 10 minutes at the "this is the way to be more strong" line.

I haven't seen Kill La Kill, but I'm in the middle of Gurren Lagann and I'm not liking it nearly as much as you did. I think it's decent, but not exactly A+ grade anime. The director also made Dead Leaves, which I found more entertaining and its run time is more appropriate for what it is.

Wait until the second half, it gets better.

Kamina fan boys missed out a lot when they stopped watching after episode 8.

I prefer the original Bleach theme song to the later version. I am not a fan of anime changing theme songs.

I'm the exact opposite of you. I prefer the later Bleach openings than the earlier ones. Some theme songs are great, but if they keep it forever, it'll get boring and repetitive. Of course, they have to change things eventually.

But it's literally perfect.

It's everything I want out of any sort of media. Flawless from start to finish.

It even accomplishes something few shows do, in that it lasts exactly as long as it should. I loved every minute of it, and when it was over I was totally content. Didn't want to see any more, that was enough. Whereas something like Kill la Kill I enjoyed less while watching, but wanted to see more of once it was done. Struggling to think of much else that manages it. Babylon 5 does if you ignore the shitty spin-off films and pretend it ended with Sleeping in Light, but can't think of any other ongoing series that do.

Guess I'm just a sucker for shameless macho nonsense. The whole theme of overcoming everything through sheer stubbornness really works for me. The entire show basically boils down to a series of encounters where a bad guy says "You can't do that thing because <sensible reasons>" and the heroes go "fuck you we don't care have some drills" and win anyway.

I don't think it's bad, just pretty good. I think I'd give it a solid 7 at this point, which on my list would place it next to the likes of R.O.D, Desert Punk, etc.

It even accomplishes something few shows do, in that it lasts exactly as long as it should. I loved every minute of it, and when it was over I was totally content.

Lots of anime lasts just long enough without dragging. Actually, it's especially common with anime outside of those boring 100+ episode shonen. Most of my favorite anime series are 20 something or fewer. British shows seem to be the opposite where there should have been more.


Guess I'm just a sucker for shameless macho nonsense.

Me too. I mean Undisputed 2 and 3 are among my favorite movies of all time and probably approaching being among my most watched (though not there yet). If those aren't macho nonsense I don't know what is. To each their own, man. I just don't see how TTGL is THAT great. I'm liking it fine, though. It would be cool if they made a video game. Speaking of which, Soul Eater could be a pretty sweet fighting game. Also, you should check out Dead Leaves and possibly Redline. They have that over the top craziness. Also Blue Gender cuz Blue Gender is best mecha show.

Even if they're the most famous and a bit old by this point, they're still very decent. I would give up 10 years of my life to experience the joy I got watching DBZ with my family back in the 90s ~ early 2000s. Same with the original Yugioh and Digimon.

The Boondocks is probably my favorite of them all.

Case Closed is such a damn fun show but there's way too much of it. 700+ episodes, 19 films, a bunch of OVAs, a whole load of other spinoffs and god knows what else. Some shounen series really go beyond flat out with that shit.
