Have you read the manga before? Bizarre is in the name, of course it'll be a strange show.

No. I have not. I am watching this for the first time. That is why I did not want any spoilers to ruin it.

I already watched it subbed, but it gets way better in the later parts. This is only the prologue to all the cool shit that happens throughout the series.

Is the dub any good?

Which 3 manga series do you think will end first? Berserk, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, or Glass Mask?

Either way, I won't be holding my breath for either one...

I understand that, it would have to get better at this point. I was just giving my reactions to the first episode.

What do you guys think of fall 2016 anime? I think this season is pretty disappointing so far. I'm watching a lot of new shows coming out this season but I might drop a few of them, particularly Occultic;Nine, Lostorage Incited WIXOSS, and Keijo. These shows either make no sense, don't appeal to me, or are just really cringey.

For now, I'll continue watching Shuumatsu no Izetta, Drifters, 3-gatsu no Lion, and Hibike! Euphonium 2nd second. I hope they won't disappoint me.

I read the manga of drifters way back but kind of stopped reading it because it took so long for new volumes to come out, im jumping back to it with the anime. i like stories that take place in the after life and all the different historical figures interacting with eachother, so definitely a fun show.
i also watched the first episode of yuri on ice which is about figure skating, i enjoy most sports series and this one seems good so far, nice animation and some may or may not be subtle homosexual undertones.

Manga can be dragged out, and take a long time for new ones to be released. If you like it, you just have to be patience and wait.

Started the Space Adventure Cobra TV series last night. First anime I've started since ZZ Gundam killed it for me. Watched the first four episodes in a row last night, which is a large amount for me. Usually I can't do more than two or three without feeling like I'm wasting time and get the itch to do something else.

It's pretty good fun so far, we'll see how it progresses. I think I'm bound to watch any series with a jazzy '70s-'80s opening like this, though. I'm a sucker for 'em. If I end up liking this enough I'll probably go for the film and OVA next.

Speaking of '70s-'80s, I'm starting to feel like I'm the only one in this thread that watches old mecha/sci-fi stuff in this vein. My posts are a bit out of line from the norm here.

This is a no spoilers zone. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, episode two made a little more sense. There was a large jump forward in time. They showed what the mask does. It had plenty of action. It still seems average. Not sure why it has such a large following? No spoilers.

Has anyone seen the anime music video Shelter that came out recently?

I can't stop re-watching it. Everything about it is amazing, especially the visuals.

No problem. This was trending on Twitter a few days ago and many anime YouTubers were talking about it. I'm glad I introduced you to it.

That is true. I have been enjoying Hunter X Hunter. It was nice at first, but has really grown on me.

If you don't mind me asking, when did you first become interested in anime?

I've known you for a while and I see you here all the time so I'm just curious.

I think it was Gundam Wing and DragonBall. I liked them before I knew they were anime. lol

How about you?

Finished Space Adventure Cobra last night. The Golden Boy and Rugball arcs were leagues ahead of the other episodes, but I liked most of it well enough. Only episodes I didn't really enjoy were the ones with the Swordians. The way things suddenly became serious 4 episodes from the end was a bit jarring too, but Cobra getting together with all his buds was neat. It was a fun watch, but I think I'm gonna hold off on the film and OVAs for a bit.

Up next for me is the Dirty Pair TV series. The only taste of Dirty Pair I've had is a single OVA episode that I passively watched in some livestream, so I suppose this is a bit overdue. Six episodes in so far, and I've enjoyed all of it. The stories have had good variety and they all feel fresh and interesting, and Kei and Yuri are really likeable characters. Mughi outshines them both though.

How do you drum up the enthusiasm to get through these somewhat long old series, and in a fairly short time? I have trouble getting through 13 episode anime nowadays, even current series that I find interesting, nowhere near this older stuff.

I pre-ordered a figure from Your Lie in April many months back, it's releasing in like a week now after several delays and I still haven't even finished the series. Kids on the Slope, Kill la Kill, Code Geass, even Gurren Lagann, all really cool series that I never finished. There's just so much shit I try to keep up with, games, movies, TV, and anime always goes on the back burner for me. Watching a whole 80's anime is basically never going to happen even though a lot of them look good.

Usually I don't, but I guess I've been in the mood lately. I mentioned earlier that 1-2 eps is normally my maximum for a day, but I sat down after work and watched 6 eps of Dirty Pair in a row last night.

I haven't been up to date with games since I was 16, I rarely play anything at all these days. Movies and TV aren't a big interest either, so anime and some old tokusatsu stuff is really my only "TV time".

So i watched this anime music video called "Shelter" and i must say, it was VERY amazing, it even got me slightly teary-eyed. i honestly regret not watching this earlier.
I mean, the thing that i liked the most about it is how i can relate to the girl in the video on a personal level, first of there's those parts where she draws on a tablet and then she "creates worlds" from there, i'm not sure if the direct interpretation of herself drawing on that tablet is just her drawing on a tablet and having things show up without any special meaning behind it (It was cool so who gives a shit?), but for me, i kind of interpreted it as if she's escaping this "Lonely" world of hers, a few years back i used to do that a lot, get really tired of this world and then go straight away to this "Imaginary" world of mine. not gonna lie, i still do that sometimes. then there's this scene where she starts to remember some of those "good times" and again, not sure what's the direct interpretation but for me, i think she just misses those times that she's lost, and i think we all sometimes feel this way at least once in our lives. there's also these last "Inspirational words" at the end where she says things about herself needing to move on, this is a bit personal but i'm kinda trying to move on over "something" and forget some stuff but i must say, these things she said at the end seem pretty legit and correct.

The soundtrack is also amazing, it matches this whole music video very well. the animation is pretty good too, for a short music video it seems like a lot of effort was put into it, but i guess all of this effort must have been worth it.

TL;DR - Amazing music video, HIGHLY recommended.
Watch it if you haven't already.
