Just saying, if you're writing this with the purpose of getting more people interested in watching the show, your current format might be a bit counter-productive. So far you haven't done any reviewing, you've just given episode summaries. Of course, this is understandable at this point since you're still at the very beginning, but if you're going to continue like this, any potential fence-sitters are going to get the entire story just by reading your posts, and obviously, if the plot details are spoiled, there's less incentive to watch the show. It might be more helpful to your loyal readers if you adopted a practice of always spoilering in-depth details. Or you could create a separate viewing journal thread for the show, if you want to avoid using spoiler tags.

The word you're looking for is "womanizer" or "casanova", not "pervert". As it stands now, that sentence makes no sense.

And yet for some reason that was the word I was trying to think of that never popped into my head while making that post. :lol:

I don't think Xard even gives a darn about Orguss at this point.

Watched Ikoku Meiro no Croisée. Great episode again. I really loved the flashbacks depicting Claude and Camille's past. Apparently being dense isn't a new condition for Claude. Also, Yune was appallingly cute again. I feel a diabetic coma coming on. :deadhead:

But we do have several self-professed giant robot fans on board, not to mention lurkers and potential future members. To give you an example, back when you were posting your semi-regular Xabungle or Great Mazinger viewing updates, your posts were essentially a minefield and I had to skip most of them altogether because I do plan to watch those shows once they're fully subbed.

It's entertaining. I wouldn't call it good though.

I just watched the first episode. Green haired chick is hot, Green haired chick is dead, and no plot is introduced. Awesome.

If it doesn't amuse me by the fifth episode, I'm giving it up.

Only if you can tolerate at least most the following:

-Useless characters
-Boring talk scenes
-Obnoxious fan service
-False deaths
-Good characters getting killed off (and in a lame fashion no less)
-Cheap mechs that are mark 2s and lack mark 1s
-The worst anime character in history
-Fanboy debates upon the last death of the series (the debate as to whether or not they really died or not, I think he/she/it didn't, but try telling that to die hard fanboys)

I was thinking of watching macross. One of my friends told me it was over rated but I’m not going to take his word on it (he does not like anime that much). So is it good and I heard there is more than one macross so what is the viewing order?

Green: Tolerable
Blue: ..meh, don't care that much.
Red: Nope

I hope there is a redeeming factor to the negatives. Still going with my original plan though.

They have Shen-Hu in the second half of the series (R2), but that's about it.

-Good characters getting killed off (and in a lame fashion no less)

Yeah, once Mao shows up s**t like this is gonna hit the fan.
-The worst anime character in history

If you want I'll give you my big list of least favorite anime characters and you can skip to number one.

i saw Do You Remember Love and thought it was vastly overrated, not bad but it didnt live up to my expectations based on a lot of peoples' praise over it.

Steins;Gate seemed to be a notch better in animation which made me think it was the last episode. got reminded of some eva tropes (you are everywhere, the silent line) and it was good but i wouldve been disappoint if it was really the last episode.

Steins Gate 22 was okay, the execution kind of failed here and there though.
I just hope that it´ll pick up some pace again in the last 4 episodes, Steins Gate has been kinda slow lately.
