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.

Just saw Akira for the 1st time and I liked it... for the most part. For it's time, it must of been mind blowing and hell the animation still holds up to date, I liked the action scenes, and overall it was a fun watch. But it does get very confusing at times and just kinda messes with the flow for me.

It is very good, even to stands up today. However, the ending always disappoints me.

Pretty alright year though not quite as strong as 2015 was. My list favorites of this year in anime would be...

- (1) My Hero Academia
- (2) Ushio to Tora S2
- (3) Drifters
- (4) Mobile Suit Gundam: IBO S2
- (5) Re:Zero
- (6) Shokugeki no Souma: The 2nd Plate
- (7) GATE: Jieitai Kanochi Nite Kaku Tatakaeri S2
- (8) 91 Days
- (9) Konosuba
- (10) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime 2

- Hai to Gensou no Grimgar
- Arslan Senki: Fuujin Ranbu
- Erased
- Alderamin on the Sky
- Izetta: The Last Witch
- Kabnaneri of the Iron Fortress
- Dimension W
- Heavy Object
- Utawarerumono
- Sakamoto Desu ga?
- Kuromukuro
- Twin Star Exorcists

Now they might not be masterpieces but they're all enjoyable to watch depending on one's tastes. To some it might look like a long list but just to put into perspective my 2015 favorites would have twice as many shows.

That reminds me of Black Heaven, except it was about a middle-aged salary man who used to lead a heavy metal band. The opening theme was written and performed by John Sykes, guitarist for Whitesnake.

Okay. Let's get back to discussing Anime.

Toonami will probably be repeats next week for the holidays.

It's very very excessively gruesome to the point where you'll have to look away from the screen at times unless you're some sort of sociopath. If you've seen anime like Elfen Lied or similar, where the gore is excessive but weightless, where people just *pop* like blood bags, Corpse Party isn't quite like that. It's a whole lot more meaty and crunchy, and the reasonably solid voices add a lot to it. You'll be hearing a lot of people screaming in pain.

That said it's just an exercise in violence and can only go so deep. I lean back to Evangelion as an example of how characters rather than events are what make situations fucked up, the few instances of gore are not only more effectively done but have so much consequence behind them. It's the difference between saying "haha wow this is so fucked up" as you keep watching, and feeling silently dejected after the episode ends.

It's only like four episodes though so fuck it why not.

I just finished all 5 episodes
The only thing that was unsettling was the sight of children being murdered, but that was only a little bit

Watching children being murdered is not enjoyable. At least, it is only an anime, not real life.
