I really enjoyed Soul Eater. Has anybody heard if there will be more produced?
Do you know of anywhere I can watch Soul Eater? I have Hulu Plus as well as Netflix, and I'd love to check it out sometime!

There's a bunch of streaming sites for anime, some of them pretty mobile friendly, too. I don't want to get in trouble for naming specific sites, but I'm sure Google will lead you there. I think anime is the easiest stuff to watch for free.

I read this chapter just yesterday.

Have to say, I was pretty shocked by her new look, but at the same time, I dig it.

Do you guys like slice of life anime where nothing really happens?

I like them a lot compared to story driven anime because the story always feels really contrived.

Try Teekyuu, it's that kind of series made with drugs and all crammed in.

They're OK when they don't use the exact same tropes and plot devices of literally every show in the genre

"We have to choose a theme for the spring festival!"

NO WE DON'T

LET'S DO SOMETHING ELSE FOR ONCE

Also it's hard to invest in a plot where nothing is at stake and nothing really matters

Slice of life tends to be more comedic. I like my action, but I also like to laugh too, so I tend to watch slice of life as a result. I have a somewhat loose definition of slice of life. Im not entirely sure how far something can go before it isn't considered slice of life anymore. Would squidgirl be considered slice of life? What about ben-to? I know lucky star and the two I mentioned in the above post are (or might be).

Toonami has gone from 11:30-6 to 12-3. Do you think this marks the end, or will it return better than ever?

I'm starting to like ecchi anime. The ones that I've seen are: Sekirei, High School DxD and part of High School of the Dead. I wonder if there are any other ecchi animes that are good.

I've watched a ton of ecchi/harem anime:

High School DxD
High School of the Dead
Freezing
Queen's Blade
To Love-ru
Rosario + Vampire
Infinite Stratos
Strike the Blood
Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls
Date A Live

Feel free to check out any of these if you haven't already done so, but I will tell you that you might not find a lot of these to be "good".

Here's my list of Ecchi + Romance anime that weren't included in Vinny's list (They're all pretty good and someeee of them are weird)

Trinity Seven
No Game No Life (kinda Harem)
Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?
Hagure Yeesha No Estetica
Seikon no Qwaser (If you really like Ecchi that much then...)
Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance
Maken-Ki!
Ben-To!
Hidan no Aria
11 Eyes

That's pretty much it but yah. :P Good luck picking on what to watch first.

The one thing that I don't get about this genre is all of the hate that it gets and the accusations that they are "ruining" anime. Granted not a lot of them are special or anything like that, but there is no harm in watching buxom/lolicon/crossdressing girls showing skin now and again. Not to mention that they're more or less following Go Nagai's footsteps anyway, and he's a legend for extreme content {and Mazinger Z}

High School DxD easily is my favorite of the bunch, as it actually has a MC who enjoys being in a harem with women {and Kiba} that don't view him as a piece of meat, mostly at least, and it's actually refreshing to see everyone in the story approve of Issei's perverted behavior.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

One of the reasons why I love High School DxD is because it has more to offer than just fan service. High School DxD has a well-developed story line, good fight scenes, and they even try to do creative things with breasts to make you laugh. The fan service is just an extra part of the series, unlike most other ecchi anime where the fan service is all that there is to the series.

Also, not everyone approves of Issei's behavior. Koneko, for example, dislikes Issei's perverted antics. She hits him every time she catches him doing something lecherous.

I think it shows they favor quality over quantity. Toonami trimmed their line-up of shows that have had full runs recently and were airing repeats. I'd like to see Toonami expand again, but only if they can acquire enough series to sustain such growth.

It seems Toonami will soon air Sword Art Online II, most likely as a replacement for Gurren Lagaan, which wraps up in a few weeks.

Manga are the equivalent of western comics but usually only printed in black and white, anime are animated cartoons.

Edited to make the sentence look less weird. I think I failed.
