True, but I still like Initial D: Battle Stage's ending. (Although it's technically not an ending)

I mean, takumi loses his girlfriend, loses an important race, and then what? He gets his GF back, and ends up pwning everything in his path. Good show.

Well anyway, anyone watching new Fall series yet? Kaiji was pretty good -- animation is nice and different, it has some western style in it too. Never read the manga so can't compare yet.

Still gotta check in on other stuff, if it's worth it!

Um, I still haven't gotten to clannad, but it finished downloading this morning.

lol just in case if no one's seen Initial D yet.

What just aired or what has been subbed? I'm sure you already know the BT sites that will update new releases...
I watched a full list on niconico douga a while ago, there should also be one on YouTube.
Can also google "fall 2007 anime" or something. Some blogs have a list, might not be complete but you get an idea.

There are some nice sequels coming up!

Alright then, I will. *CoughCougharuhiCough*

Also, I dunno if it counts as anime, but I recently purchased Street Fighter: Eternal Challenge after months of wanting it. I'm glad I am, as apparently its rare, and I picked it up for only 20$

and then I found this poster, and man do I want it.

Also, I do like Udon's Manga, especially their street fighter: Ultimate Edition comics, they are really well done and go into the back stories of some of the fighter's histories.

lol, yea I saw. I wanted to make a submission myself but never got around to it, even though tons of people submitted D:

It's also a good source for some series or even songs you never heard of.

I agree clannad is fucking win for a first episode.. also SS-Eclipse ftfw. Static-Subs are awesome and Eclipse are awesome and together its easily the epic level of win in sub groups icon_smile.gif

Shakugan no Shana 2's first episode wasnt too bad despite 3/4's of it being a rather odd recap icon_razz.gif

Gundam 00's first episode was also surprisingly awesome for what I was expecting icon_wink.gif

Dragonaut seemed a bit clicheish at parts but it looks to have alot of potential (also I have a twenty riding on the pink haired girl being the love interest, as if that wasnt obvious enough, and being a dragon/mutant/monster of some sort icon_razz.gif)

also just waiting on the eps for Night Wizard / Goshuushou-Sama to finish..

tbh I already really like this new season and once code geass / haruhi come along to top it off it'll be perfect icon_biggrin.gif

Warning: Long post is Long. Man I hate missing out on weekends.

Well, I've seen enough of Nanoha StrikerS to make a decision, and my decision is as follows:



I like it. Its got a nice blend of action and plot, not to mention the "equip" scenes...



I also like Sheri. Man, even the geeky people in StrikerS are cool.

and why did yesy subs do this?



And now to start conversations!

Clannad was surprisingly nice, I liked it a lot. I kind of identify a bit with tomoya, and I hope that things work out well with him and nagisa. I also like Nagisa's family, they were hilarious. I just hope that the anime won't turn into some really sad ending like the visual novel, that'd be sad. But I'll definitely be watching this.

New gundam season? Ooh, I might have to get on this, seeing as how I'm always like 50 episodes behind each new season XD

Ghost Hound, Appleseed Saga Ex Machina, and Taiho Shichauzo Full Throttle TV look intresting to me, I'll be waiting for them/checking them out.

Yeah, eclipse is quite win. B.T.W. does anyone else get mad when your anime episodes are in .avi format rather than .mkv? I caught myself complaining about it the other day.

Also, my little bro and I watched the girl who leapt through time yesterday. He enjoyed it, because I usually don't let him watch anime, seeing as the ones I watch are either too suggestive or too violent for him. But this gave me a topic idea:

Do any of you watch anime with siblings/family members?

P.S. I'm eating almond pocky and drinking ramune as I wrote this. I got lucky down at the local food import store yesterday pp_smiley8.gif

*Edit* Gah, I just received word that the seller of the Street Fighter book misplaced it, so I won't be getting it. Damn.

The latest ep of StrikerS has quite possibly the most gratifying scene ive seen in any anime as of yet.. watching what happens to Quattro I think it was.. was well.. awesome to say the least. Atleast for me. After seeing what she was doing to poor Vivio..

Ghost Hound is something I definately want to see..

I used to watch the stuff on sbs with the grandfather back when they were airing.Other than those few occaisions though dont really watch anime with family much icon_razz.gif

? I got hooked on pocky long before I got hooked on anime. I've been hooked since I was like 7 or 8, back when I'd go with my mom to the asian market to get ingredients for various thai dishes. I'd usually try and find a box of yan-yan or pocky to eat. But yeah, it is kind of weeaboo-ish, now that I think of it.

about that gang colour pocky thing... If I eat men's pocky and have a scruffy look, what does that make me? Hardcore straight up Otaku-beating gansta-tripper? I mean, come on. There's only like 2 flavors of pocky readily available in the U.S; How could they use that for gang colours? (I got lucky and picked up some almond crunch/men's at the store while they had them)

But I could see how you eat pocky as being a debatable issue, albeit a stupid weeaboo one.

I had a friend who ate the pocky I gave him like a cigarette, leaving the uncovered-in-chocolate end for last. Made me lol.

P.S. I am really pissed off that I didn't get the SF artbook. I'm thinking of either getting the poster, or saving my money for something better. Or just getting the UDON's art of capcom book, it has zombies. And darkstalkers.

If you enjoy it due to actual enjoyment thats cool but those who eat it just because it's the 'anime' thing to do need to an hero.. though I guess the same could be said for anyone trying to make a statement with such a pointless action.

Actually thinking about it I should just scan the article. It was epic on the lulz and cringeworthy scales.. atleast from memory.

http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=3890

There is a complete list of Fall 2007 anime icon_wink.gif

I just watched Shakugan no Shana Second ep 1, it wasn't that great, recap of most of the first season. Clannad, another Kanon clone - but first episode was pretty good. But damn, im looking forward to Genshiken 2, thats going to be pretty neat.

Also if anybody's interested you can take a look at my anime list
mmm... cheese...
