Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now B/

Are we talking about the same roster here? Admittedly, some titles I'm (now) looking forward to haven't started yet, and I was discounting them. But I'm curious Professor, if you eliminate School/ Slice of life titles, how many of those "8" are left? ^ Try Dororo, its first Episode was ve...

This new Winter season feels pretty sparse. The only two shows I'm watching are sequels.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Goblin Slayer : Can you believe that this show generated controversy with one of the tamest rape scenes I've ever seen? It makes me wonder where the hell the people that got shocked came from. Did they watch this by accident instead of the usual My Hero Academia episode? Controversy aside it's a go...

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Skeleton Warrior. Reading lots of Korean material apparently. This is the first story that's made "I've been transported into a game world-- playing a non-human" palatable for me, but YMMV. "Skeleton lover" is a phrase I didn't think I'd ever see. What are you loving exactly? Ho...

Goblin Slayer It has a few moments like Is it wrong to try and pick up a girl in a dungeon? where thing get surprisingly visceral. And graphic. and Horrifing. And that's honestly why I'm watching. I'm so desensitized that the raw feeling this provides is food for my tormented soul. :devil: The titu...

Re: What manga are you reading right now?

Gosu ( the master) Korean in origin, and just absolutely gorgeous artwork. Has a fake-out beginning, and follows the disciple of a well-renowned martial artist as he fights to TAKE REVENGE for his master (and deliver dumplings on time). It's partly satirical. One thing, it's really hard to gauge &q...

Having put Shiki to one side again after the rather underwhelming episode where the doctor vivisects (necrosects?) his wife, I've just finished watching GitS:Arise (the original OVAs plus the TV finale). As yet another GitS continuity, it works fine -- Plots are really dumb... I can't even remember...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Lupin III Part V Things just got highly introspective. Out of nowhere, a credible examination of Lupin and Goeomon's relationship has shown up. I'm only sad they didn't develop this more deliberately. There were like, 3 filler episodes in this season, plenty of time to do it in, yet this all really...

Zoids Wild Dear lord; that color pallet, that hair, that wooden dialogue... Re-imagining Zoids as motorcycles/horses is cool, and the villains being into S&M is hilarious, but Zoids-as-Pokemon just doesn't work for me. Angolmois: Genkou Kassenki Historical anime about the Mongol invasion of Jap...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

So, the season comes to an end, and pretty much everything has aired its last episode (late-shifters like DarliFra aside); and the one episode of (Don't Lewd the) Horse Girls I watched just makes it so that I did see more episodes of Spring titles than I could count on the fingers of one hand.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now Bl

I've never seen it, or even, AFAIK even had the opportunity to do so back in the day. Still, what I liked about Yatterman Nights is that it's a sendup to the three-idiot villain team (think Team Rocket), making them both the center of the story, and the heroes, for once. The work is also not just a...

At least it it gave me Shinn, the result of a DBZ fusion of Shinji and Asuka. I really wish they let him kill Kira, would've made the show a lot better. :devil: Shinn is the character I despise --- by GSD, Kira is just going through the motions, sort of like Amuro in Zeta, but with a bigger role, a...

In the two episodes in Fumoffu where she came to Jindai High as transfer student she was just really annoying what with the constant quarreling with Kaname about Sousuke.

Could you imagine if Goku and Vegeta got new VAs for KAI or Super? Gundam SEED is extremely popular in Japan, it's the most (or very close) popular Gundam over there, and they didn't recast the whole Japanese cast There's a different culture surrounding voice acting over there & its contracting...
