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

I agree the second series is as well done as the first; but I'm not sure it added anything - there comes a point when too much Mushi-shi gets a bit boring. I guess it needs to be taken slowly and not marathoned. Yea, that's fair. The show is one that I feel isn't as good on a second watch as on a f...

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

I was so disappointed by the first few episodes that I dropped it. I sorta feel I ought to watch some more as a matter of form, but haven't yet managed to drive myself to it. I'd say take your time on watching it, and maybe don't watch it at all. I probably wouldn't have said that before the 12th e...

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

It's been quite some time, since I've seen Haruhi, but I feel like you're both right at that front. I enjoyed it enough when I first watched it, but it might be one of those shows which are so deeply rooted in the time were produced, they don't quite work as anything else but time capsules. I watch...

Re: FML general thread [8]

More than a month since someone on this forum has had a FML moment? This must be a record. Some could point to this as an example of a lack of activity on the forum, but I like to see it as a celebration of a lack of less than necessary FML posts, i.e. something like "I ate ice cream too fast ...

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

^ I never understood why people are concerned with things like plot holes. Especially in time travel movies, those are almost a given, if you look hard enough. I think with Shinkai's films, especially the wonderful Voices of a Distant Star , 5cm per Second , and Your Name , he probably realized tha...

Re: Image Request Thread

There was this piece of Eva fan art from back in the day that I really liked and had saved on an older phone, and I was wondering if anyone remembers posting it in the image thread and if so could they repost it here for me(or PM me or whatever). My description of it will probably be crap, but I'll ...

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II Bl

I was thinking the same of Zeta; the antagonists kept changing their suits, I couldn't keep a visceral "power level" scale in my mind for whether they were close to a Gundam or not. Yea, I think they were rolling out new mobile suits every episode. The Titans had a quantity over quality p...

I'm pretty interested how it'll be received because I think the Gantz anime may be the worst series I've w...

Re: [Merch] Evangelion Merchandise 2, or, Why Do I Keep Buying Things!?

The Evangelion Calendar 2018 just arrived and I took some quick picture of it: https://imgur.com/a/aBVp1 Very nice, I'm thinking of ordering mine in a week or so. I love that image of Shinji wearing the jacket with the plugsuit. One of my favorite official Eva images in a while. Takeshi Honda is th...

Re: The Top 100 Anime of All Time (According To Japan)

I'm surprised to see Cowboy Bebop so low, and Digimon Adventure so high. Cowboy Bebop is, after all, objectively a much better show, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise. :lol: What bummed me out about the list was the lack of sway of our fellow Eva fans in Japan. Why weren't they stuffing th...

Re: Official "What should I watch next?" thread

I'd say check out both runs of Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu , though it does take a few episodes to get used to and thus may not pass the Tines test(maybe it already failed?) I recommend KumaMiko too, which was a quirky and funny and great show that has a slightly bad reputation because I guess peo...

Re: What are you watching right now? (tv series + see OP!)

Ken Burns The Vietnam War has been fantastic so far, and with episode 6/10 airing tonight. It excels pretty well in explaining the what and why of the war, which can be a bit tough to wrap your head around. The anecdotes by the veterans on both side are right up there with the great commentaries in...

Any chance you'd ever come to Illinois and do some of these panels at Acen, EvaMonkey? I'd love to see some of them. Or do you mostly just kick it out east?

Re: Buying a Record Player

I'd recommend being patient and checking out some used turntables/receivers/speakers at garage sales, flea markets, or online. If you go to a flea market look for a dealer who looks like he respects electronics, not some guy who's going to sell you some janky thing he found in the alley behind a Tac...

Got a chance to see the best band in the world last night(albeit at a festival): New Order. I was a tad worried about how they'd sound after watching a few recent live performances of theirs, but they killed it. They're up there in age but they still brought it; Sumner jumped around a bit, and Morri...
