I'd post here more often if people were interested in talking about new anime this Fall.

Anybody planning to watch Psycho-Pass or K?

Well actually, I have kinda lost interest in anime because nothing recent seems interesting to me. Most of the newer stuff I hear about seems aimed at younger girls.

I know what you mean, Wonko. I've been lurking here for months, if not years, because I haven't seen anything worth talking about.

I am thankful that Toonami is back on the air; it's the only source I have for anime on TV. I've been using Netflix with mixed results; not everything is streaming, and sometimes discs go unavailable.

Has anyone here seen Casshern Sins? Apparently, it's the gritty reboot of a series that aired in the '70s and inspired Megaman X. The only back-story I could find on Netflix is the live-action film, which left me with more questions than answers. The only thing that has f***ed my mind harder recently is Deadman Wonderland, but that series was only 12 episodes long.

I joined the anime society at my uni and we started Another and Angel Beats the other day. Another didn't seem that great but I already know and love Angel Beats so I guess it's okay.

Hulu has a decent selection, and it's free.

I've seen two or three episodes. The action seems cool, at least.

Yeah, I didn't care for that movie.

I can't stand the main character.

Same here, to be honest, there hasn't been anything the last couple of years that made me stop and say "I got to watch this now." Not to say that there wasn't any good ones to mention, but I just wouldn't recommend them to anyone unless they were a diehard fan of moe. Probably why I went back to watching more old-school anime recently.

Kind of a shame really. Don't get me wrong, I like Toonami as much as the next anime fan and all, but the only source for anime on TV is kind of sad once you think about it. I would've thought that we would have a dedicated anime channel on TV by now, considering that there are numerous movies, sports and even cooking channels on cable/satellite TV, couldn't there be room for a 24 hour anime channel?

Haven't seen the original version, so I wouldn't know too much about it. As for the reboot, well I really didn't care for it that much.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I'm watching Space Bros at the moment, although I'm pretty far behind the current airing ep, it's been going for half a year now and is pretty sweet. About a guy training to become an astronaut. Is cool.

I see your club likes mediocre anime.

Two of the most unintentionally hilarious shows I've seen in years.

I love anime even though I haven't watched much. (Pokemon, Digimon, Yu-gi-OH, Dragonball Z) but I'm still very interested in it. I think it's an awesome style of cartooning.

I really need to start being more active here.

Just started watching the dubbed version of Panty and Stocking and I feel they did justice. Definetly one of the best dubs I've heard maybe since like Shin Chan or Golden Boy.

Aside from that that's about it. Frankly, I'm getting sick of the crap on Netflix. I need to get into the japanese versions of those animes like Ouran and Hetalia (Okay maybe not that) but uh yup

How's shit otherwise?

Just watched the first episode of the new Jojo's bizarre adventure series. My only complaint is that the pacing felt kind of off, but maybe it will even out once the show goes on. Also it was interesting how the ending song was by Yes, didn't expect an anime to have music from and old progressive rock band.

I've been struggling to get back into Legends of the Galatic Heroes. I'm about 50 episodes in and I was really enjoying it I just ended up falling off the wagon and can't seem to get back on. Now I am just watching episodes of Yugioh all the time instead.

animefuel is good. Also, Hulu has a lot of anime you can watch for free. It's actually a pretty good selection, and the quality is top notch, which isn't something I can honestly say about any streaming site I've been to.

Animefuel looks good and has a large collection. I'm aware of Hulu, but I don't like how it's trying to force me to purchase a plus account; seriously, it tells me to upgrade every page I go to.

I liked the episode, but I really don't have the patience for a series as long as Jojo.

Yeah, that's the one. Never got the chance to finish it and had already forgotten the name by the time I was gonna continue.
