Only issue I would have with one of the non-canon Voltron series is that some idiots would say "But Sven is alive in that series" when it was non-canon and has no freaking connection to the original Go Lion anime. Admittingly I don't care much for Go Lion but it's close to using a flash animation parody as a proof of fanfiction to a certain series being canon.

Seen that comment in the YouTube comments section by a retard in a video about Sven's death.

Another new Voltron? It could be decent. Gundam Wing is always good watching.

Yeah, looks like Netflix produced it and it just came out this month. Here's the wikipedia for it. I didn't really read it other than to verify the release date though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voltron:_Legendary_Defender

As far as Gundam goes, I think I do miss the Endless Waltz movie. I'm going to have to track down a dvd. Or hell, a remastered Blu-ray if they made one. I'd love to see updated graphics one day that look like The Appleseed movie or Ghost in the Shell:SAC

Nah, but all i'm saying is that it's stupid to call an entire anime club "a sad excuse" just because no one mentioned this anime of yours.

The zombie story line on One Piece has been good so far. Not sure, when they will get back to finding the One Piece.

Lupin is actually one of the big holes in my mission to consume all of popular culture. Is there anything specific you'd recommend other than the ghibli film?

The original series is a ton of fun. The specials and films are very hit-or-miss, though. From what I've seen I like Crisis in Tokyo, Fuma Clan, and Green vs Red the most.

I haven't actually seen the sequel series other than an odd episode here and there, but I'll probably get around to it once I run out of music documentaries to watch.

What I've read of the manga is great too if you're a NERD

I looooove Lupin. My favorite is Lupin III Part 2 (the red jacket series), especially dubbed with Tony Oliver as Lupin and Richard Epcar as Jigen. Out of the movies, other than Cagliostro, I really like Secret of Mamo (only movie afaik that's dubbed with the same cast as the second series a.k.a red jacket series), Burn Zantetsuken and Fuma Conspiracy. There's other good ones.

Oh, yeah, and of course the original (green jacket) series is also good. I've never gotten around to the third (pink jacket) series myself. Another thing maybe worth mentioning, there's hardly any recurring antagonists. Mr X comes back in the first episode of the red jacket series and Pycal comes back in a (somewhat recent) movie. Both were in the first series. It mostly doesn't matter what order you watch any of this stuff. Though the original series has Goemon before becoming part of the crew.

Seriously, though, Tony Oliver practically is Lupin to me. But the Japanese guy grew on me, too. I guess he was replaced in the new show, though. I really only want to hear one of the two. No Sonny Strait or whatever.

P.S Sense-Offender,

I just watched the last episode of Mayoiga and the entire show is a major disappointment, probably the worst one of the season. It started out pretty interesting and seemed like it was setting up for something exciting, but after the first episode, it quickly went downhill. Many people were expecting a bloodbath, but that never happened. It was mostly just the characters talking and acting like morons. The plot felt very underwhelming. There were also too many characters, and most of them were completely irrelevant to the story and served no purpose other than being background characters. The ending also felt rushed as hell. The show actually had some potential, but that quickly faded in the second episode.

Overall, don't watch Mayoiga. All that awaits you is a train wreck.


Just chillin' like always.

You watched the whole thing? Or did you stop after the first few episodes?

Directly at episode 3, it got really boring.

You made the right choice. I would've stopped as well, but since I was actually looking forward to watching this show when I first heard about it, I decided to keep watching until the end. I was hoping things would get better towards the end, but that wasn't the case and the whole thing went from a train wreck to a plane crash.

If something looks bad, than just watch something else. It is not worth it to force watch anything.

I watched some Gurren Lagan (Not sure I spelled it right) and it's my new favorite anime right now, it's so ridiculous it's actually awesome.
Really love the dialogue by the way, especially that part when that girl says "If we're not careful he might dig a hole in us too!"
You guys ever seen it?

I started on Durarara.

I really like the format, where it's skipping back and forwards through time, filling in blanks and showing events from different character's perspectives each episode.

Not as sold on the world itself. Blew it's load on what Celty is far too soon, could definitely have gone for some more of the mystery of the first couple of episodes, and unless it's a deliberate red herring they've really telegraphed where her head is. Feels like a bit of a clusterfuck of ideas thrown together, so will be interesting to see how they can pull all the disperate stories together later on.
