If you're interested in dark, magical girl anime, you might like Yuki Yuna is a Hero. It's similar to Madoka Magica in the sense that it starts out as a seemingly innocent show about normal girls becoming magical girls, but then the story takes a dark turn. It's not as dark as Madoka Magica but still a good show.


Just chillin' like always.

I'm looking for an old anime that I enjoyed don't know the name but here is what I remember.

Something about a young girl and she was placed in this other world and she got small and had to work in this giant house and there was a lot of things going on an evil tall lady, a short funny yet mean fat man.

Ok that's not a lot to go on but maybe somebody has a clue.

Ya know, this is probably the 3rd or 4th time somebody has recommended Yuki Yuna. Thanks.

So, I decided Binge watch Dragon Ball GT to finally see if I still think it's crap. I made it through and I can honestly say, it's not bad, It still sucks by DBZ standards, but on it's own it's okay. Most of the major fights are pretty damn awesome to watch, Baby is actually a pretty good villan, and when it tries to be funny, it made me laugh more than I thought. Now the stuff that could've of been... left out. 1st off Goku being a kid again is still and always will be fucking stupid. I fully don't hate Pan but, Pan is pretty much the Krillin of GT, sometimes can be helpful, but most of the time gets her ass kicked. Trunks in shorts, just... No. Uub merging with Majin Buu was a cool idea, but still never mattered in the grand scheme of things. Just so many things that weren't thought that well. And also, one plot hole I kinda found at the beginning of the Shadow Dragon Saga,*Spoilers I think* if Elder Kai knew the dragon balls were going to pretty much fuck up like that, why didn't he say anything before they attempted to make a wish. That could of saved a lot of trouble. For this series for everything they do right, there's like two or three things that are wrong. I heard that it was supposed to be like returning to the adventure style of Dragon Ball, which is kinda hard to do after beating something that can destroy multiple planets in mere seconds, versus some ragtag nazis with robots. But as far as it goes, it's a nice distraction if your bored, I'd give it 5.5 outta 10

Well, Yuki Yuna is an underrated show. I'm glad there are some people trying to spread it.

WARNING: THREE REPORTS ON OLD ROBOT CARTOONS FOLLOWED BY ONE REPORT ON OLD COMEDY CARTOON. MAY BE BORING IF YOU ONLY LIKE "MOE" AND "KAWAII" CARTOONS.

Gundam 0083 was pretty alright. Uraki wasn't the most interesting protagonist, but I enjoyed having a competent pilot instead of stupid newtype magic. The stuff with Monsha in the early episodes was pretty annoying, but it got better as things went on. Gato's a cool dude and the mecha fights & animation were great. Story was p whatever, but the show had some rad tunes to back everything up and that made up for any shortcomings for me. I liked it more than F91, but less than Zeta.

Currently in the midst of a short break from Gundam before jumping into Victory since I don't wanna burn out on another 50 episode series. Might also rewatch 0079 since it's been quite a few years since I first saw it. gotta keep things fresh y'know

Jumped back into VOTOMS, watched The Last Red Shoulder and Armor Hunter Mellowlink. Red Shoulder didn't really thrill me, just felt like the television show but more rushed. Doesn't really make me want to immediately jump into the other OVAs, but I'll probably get around to them at some point anyway. Mellowlink on the other hand was fantastic. Not much to write home about on the story, but that's okay because every episode had a unique setting, style, antagonist, and feel. Constantly keeping things fresh with the simple revenge formula and a "good enough to get the job done" turnaround at the end for the final battle. Great stuff, I want more like this.

Then I finally gave Golden Boy a watch, something I've been meaning to do for years. The animation in this was fantastic, far better than I expected it to be. Jokes were solid and rarely fell flat. Characters were wacky and exaggerated, but not to the point of being a turn off. The perfect amount of ridiculousness. Tons of fun. On a NG related note, I noticed that this was clearly a huge inspiration for Egoraptor's good ol' Awesome series.

Anybody getting ready to watch Christmas or Winter themed anime? This would be the best time of year to check them out.

Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket (which i just recently watched and loved) takes place at Christmas time. Not really Christmas themed, but a fun coincidence

^ listen to this guy.

5 Centimeters Per Second is also not really a christmas movie but it is really comfy with a lot of snowy scenes. Also maybe a weird compliment but it has some of the nicest looking backgrounds you will ever see in an animation, guaranteed.

K-on has that christmas episode as well.

Tokyo Godfathers is where its at though, both for actually being very christmas related and for being one of the better anime movies in general.

Your Lie in April.

To this I would add Kids on the Slope, which features jazz, and BECK, about a teenage rock band.

K-On is about a band but it's basically a shallow framing device for moe blobs to fuck around in. I was disappointed the first time watching in seeing how the music is pushed away as an inconsequential background thing for the most part, just don't go in expecting music to be the focus.

Detroit Metal City is on my watchlist, that might be more your thing.

That sounds just like an animated series that I planned on doing

As the sole mecha fan in this thread, I'll take this opportunity to once again recommend an old robot cartoon.

Macross 7 is a series about a ROCK BAND led by a COOL DUDE that controls his TRANSFORMING MECH by SHREDDING on his ELECTRIC GUITAR and defeats ALIEN VAMPIRES with THE POWER OF MUSIC. It's rad.

Defeating alien vampires with music sounds interesting. Will have to check it out.

That's really just a super long AMV with daft punk playing in the background. If you want character development, or anything memorable people already recommended far better choices.

Can probably find Interstella easy enough for free on youtube or whatever(I did years back.) It's worth a watch for people who like the 70's style they went with. But that is pretty much what it is style without substance.

Did some google fu and found out for you.

Show was called "Gokujō!! Mecha Mote Iinchō" Mimi was the main character, and it ran for one season before they pulled the plug :(

Sorry for the bad news.


I'm the guy with the funny name.
