Given they are old shows, the fact they were above all the BD sales of current season's anime except for Madoka and Infinite Stratos, I would say that this is very respectable result they have. Also need to bear in mind is that they are BD box which means they are re-release of BDs with a simpler and more economical packaging.

Ah okay.
Thanks symbv and CorporalChaos.
Maybe I should just read the manga.
But there is no european localization for it and the scanlations are kinda hard to find/incomplete.

:/


EDIT:
I´m on the last two episodes of Nanoha Season 1 now.

Hahaohwow, wish me luck.

Since there are no new Madoka episodes forthcoming, I'm watching Shaft's Negima remake in the meantime. And boy, this show is doing weird things to me.

Thanks for ruining Negima for me, Dr. Nick. :raincloud:

BUT THEY'RE THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE ENTIRE SHOW!!! :D

Started on Eureka Seven. Not too bad. Seems like a pretty standard Bones show so far. I really dig the character designs though, even if the main kid looks like Naota from FLCL.

Well, it's been one hell of a trip, folks, but we're finally at our destination. Sawako and Kazeyaha are together.. Just finished Kimi ni Todoke: Earthquake Edition. I really liked it when Kazehaya told Joe to back off, and then the crew helped. Pin was awesome as well but a BRIBE!? Come on! Sawako did an excellent performance that would have rivaled Broadway. I was disappointed that they didn't kiss at the end.. but I guess it was too soon..

Onii-chan: Finally some yuri. Poor Irohto.. But now Nao is free to stalk her brother again. That freaking bastard has just about every girl in the show after him. I wonder who he will end up with... With one episode left though it will probably be that new girl. Disappoint.

Watched 6-12 of Honey and Clover
The show seems to have taken a turn in atmosphere to a little more serious. Its still great and when they do have comedy its pure gold. ( I almost died laughing during episode 8) So far I give it an 9/10\

I also started watching Ghost in the Shell. The first few episodes shot this series has quite a lot of promise.

Honey & Clover is quite lighthearted until the last 4 or 5 episodes of the first season - which is the absolute highlight of the whole series (including season 2).

WHAT?
Season two?
Awesome
The comedy is still there and just as good as the first few episodes but the tone is different.
SPOILER: Show

Takemoto is a little more depressed/unsure what to do and Yamada is chasing chasing something she will never catch. It just doesn't have the same feel as the earlier episodes. Their tone reflects that too, currently they all seem down in the dumps.

Regardless I still love the series.

Of course the tone is changing already, but you'll understand what I mean when the climax comes closer. The major conflicts have been revealed, but most of the development occurs very late in the series and the humor is nearly non-existent during the ending. However, the 2nd season doesn't omit the comic relief like that. H&C wouldn't be H&C without the offbeat jokes that stand out a bit too much from the overall atmosphere of the series.

Infinite Stratos Ep.11

We have a very good episode with elaboration and development on Houki and the MC Ichika with really strong spine. A bit cliche perhaps but still a nice setup for "Ichika's wives team" to take shape :lol:

This anime has gone beyond what I looked for in a harem anime. No wonder Season 2 is coming.
I never thought I would come back to Evangelion after EoE,
But I discovered Re-Take (or it found me?) and
now here I am.

I just watched the first episode of Argento Soma........ Well, that was quite a slow start, not bad but it could have been better. I also don't care for the ending theme.

Hourou Musuko was awesome this week.
SPOILER: Show
Seeing Doi get blown out of the water was very satisfying.

^ I just finished last week's episode and that was really good. I won't get to see this week's until tomorrow night. I'm really liking this show, poor Anna getting all mixed up in everything :( I like her. Takatsuki defiantly looks better with longer hair although that's probably a personal preference

I just went and watched Megami Tensei Digital Devil Monogatari.
It´s so baaad.
It´s a novel adaption which also got a video game adaption which turned into a huge JRPG franchise.
MegaTen Digital Devil Saga is basically about some guy who summons/creates(?) demons through his computer, the internet and LOLprogramming.
(Yeah, it´s one heck of a stupid plot, but this anime was made in the year 1987, so yeahhhh)
It gives off a nice creepy mystery/horror feel at the beginning of the OVA, but the rest is just plain bullshit that makes no sense whatsoever.
The visuals are dated, but they do their job surprisingly well.
Hell, it even looks better than some anime that are currently airing.

If you like bullshit and teachers getting raped by norse gods summoned through a computer with 512k RAM running MS-DOS, here´s the link:

Oh my god, this is actually related to Tokyo Revelation, one of my all-time favorite garbage OAVs. I must see this now.
