I started watching Yumekui Merry, Beelzebub, and Kore wa Zombie Desu ka, I'm enjoying them so far. Also watching Wolverine but I watched all of Iron Man and the show was terrible, so my hopes aren't incredibly high for it. Also just watched Bakemonogatari, Durarara, and Souleater, all were pretty good. I watched Air Gear as well, but I don't really understand why people like it, I thought it was ok.

Dont know if you guys have watched Shiki, but it is pretty good so far. I am only on episode 19.
Never let your mind stop you from having a good time!

I really hope they make a sequel.... They have to! >.<

The first novel series effectively ended just like that. There's a second series that continues the story.

Baka tsuki have a few of the volumes translated I think?

Watching older series instead these days... Can't believe I haven't watched Mushishi before now, soo good.

Awesome series. Enjoyed every minute.

Haven't heard much about spring season yet.. Where have you found info Karko?

Chartfag. Even though they've officially stopped they've linked to a few others who took it up.


I had to do a double take when I read Lotte no Omocha.. I can't see how anyone thought that was a good idea.

As for the ban, I'm sortof on the fence about it, on one hand I can see why people are disgruntled about it but even a blind man could see how anime has really stagnated in the last five years. Until recently you had a wealth of amazing and interesting titles coming out. Now half of it is HAREM MOEBLOBS ALMOST PORN.. If the ban completely removes that shit then I'll be a happy man.

/Shiki is alright.
//I heard you like tractors.

Second. Worst. Signature. Ever.
Expecting something witty? Herp derp tiddlerp.

Well, yea... But what worries me is that publishers will do stupid stuff out of fear of the ban... Like the one who has banned their mangaka from drawing school uniforms... wtf is up with that?

I can't stand the generic ecchi retardation animes. So no complaints from me there if they finally stop, or at least quiet down a bit.

The problem is the vague-ness of the law... The board who is supposed to look at anime/manga and judge whether they fall under the law or not will most likely consist of the people who supported the ban... Christian fanatics and old people. And it's up to them how they choose to read the law.
I'm still wondering what happened over there... Usually the flaws of democracy isn't that obvious. I mean, 80% of the Japanese are opposed to the ban. Usually the corruption and randomness of democracy are much better hidden in percentages like 55%

yea, there's something about it...
It's pretty cliche romance/comedy/harem... just without much comedy.
But so far I've watched every ep as soon as they are available.

I think I like it simply because it's been a while since I watched a harem anime that pretended to have a story. And the first anime I watched (not including pokemon) was Nagasarete Airantou. So romance/harem/comedy is what introduced me to anime icon_razz.gif

This season is looking better than the last. Gosick, Fractale, and Madoka are fucking stellar.

.. some little word to say that for me, manga can be as a beautiful cultural original expression as roots reggae or PurePwnage..

.. it is so easy to follow a road already trace, but what about now the one who create it first ?

.. just re-linking a manga pic dear 2 me to share with u ! :)

So these are two 5 minute clips made in the early 80's.  They where made by the creators of shit like FLCL and Gurren Laggan (The studio is now Gainax). These guys where only in their late teens when they made these.

III


IV



In IV, you'll see swords flying around as if they where missiles. This same look would then be used for missiles in macross, gundam, and a ton of other mech anime/games. It's call an "Itano Circus" (Itano was the first to animate something in this way.)

This cool story has been brought you by someones sig. I saw it and was like what the fuck was that shit. More info here: http://www.cjas.org/~leng/daild.htm.

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

Cool, when you say creators of FLCL and Gurren Laggan are you referring to the animation or they are the authors? I would say the author *created* it, still cool either way.

By creators I meant animators. I don't think they had writers for these 2 shorts. I also just found out theyre the animators behind Macross and Evangelion. Too bad there's no highquality rip of these somewhere. There were a few laser discs made but are SUPER rare.

Also.. FLCL made a reference to Daicon. Back then I didn't know wtf it was ofcoarse.
