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.

Aw, I missed this post. My bad.

P.S Sense-Offender,
I was brought back here chatting to willy and he was surprised you're still using that sig he made you must've been about 7 years ago, still with the credit even.

Had this sig since the redesign. It's too cool for me to want a new one. @JaY11 did like my last three sigs, I think. There was the Electric Wizard - Dopethrone one and the one with all the different sludge/stoner metal flyer artwork. I still have those on my external HD.


God Luck and Good Speed fellas!

haha

I still haven't gotten myself to watch that one even though I own it. Been meaning to for a couple of years, now, I think. Baccano! was awesome.

Have you seen Baccano? Doesn't sound like you have, but Durarara is the follow up to Baccano (they even do that stupid thing with the numbered exclamation marks, Baccano having "!" and DRRR having "!!") and they have a similar style and format. It's a clusterfuck too until the last few episodes but it's one of my early favourites, I'd have recommended it before Durarara.

Mendou got so much shit from Gendo and Haro when he was new for the anime he liked. It was like hazing. lol. I think it happened to Animetal, too. They were both good users.

Out of curiosity, exactly when did the anime moe craze began? Especially since it have been an ongoing thing in the anime industry since the mid-2000s and the seeds were probably planted earlier.

People have became obsessed over these lately.

you what mate

I think we're well over the moe hump at this stage. It's still there but it's calmed down, with the biggest anime of the last couple years being action again like Attack on Titan and Kill la Kill. Compare that to 2009-2012 where the biggest shows were shit like k-on and oreimo. I think moe features have always been around, it was just never a mainstream attraction and especially not in the west.

To my knowledge (which admittedly drops off pre-2007 unless we're talking movies) it's k-on that kicked the moe concept into overdrive, in that it could hold up entire shows with literally no other draw nor any narrative development, compared to something like sailor moon where the characters have moe features but they actually fucking do things as well and serve a narrative purpose beyond selling overpriced figures. That's the peak we've been winding down from.

Of course it's been used long before that as a sort of supplement to boost success. The word itself has existed in japan since the 80s, and I'm claiming another point for Evangelion in popularising moe side characters from the late 90s to mid 2000s; characters who draw a lot of fans without them being the focal point of the show. In the very early development of Eva there was a push to have more male characters, in the end its two main girls are by far some of the most enduring and widely replicated anime characters.

Sorry I don't know what the fuck happened there, I tried making a snarky reply and ended up writing some sort of introduction to a speculative history essay. I'm bad at this anime club lark.

K-On is good.

In other news ZZ killed Gundam for me so I quickly gave up that grand dream of watching every Gundam ever for the hell of it. Back to the same old '80s-'90s mecha OVAs and Lupin III. Might jump into Hajime no Ippo since that seems to be universally loved, but idk I haven't quite got the thirst for 75 episodes of Japanese boxing cartoons at the moment.

Arslan senki season 2 just started, i recommend this series to anybody looking for an adventure/fantasy series. the novels that it is based on are written by the man who also wrote Legend of galactic heroes, so theres an emphasis on military strategy and coming up with schemes to defeat ones opponents during the battles, albeit less dry than LOGH. the visual style and animation isnt as interesting as the OVA series from the 90s but its adequately good. I actually liked the first season so much I started reading the original novels a bit, but im bad at getting through long book series so im not sure if i will ever actually finish those.
