...eh. Tsubasa was pretty good but just when it was starting to get great, it immediately dropped off a cliff of failed drama and mindscrew. However Tsubasa actually had a satisfying ending...

it's weird how much I prefer xxxHolic since I tend to prefer action series to non-actiony often not story driven series.

I believe I said earlier in this thread that Best Wishes (Black and White) was the worst the Pokemon anime has been? I'd just like to say that's absolutely not true. B/W is actually pretty dang good. Mostly just the gym battles though. Everything else isn't special.

Toonami Saturday night!

Bleach - Repeat tonight, since new episodes are on hiatus. Odd though, when it went on hiatus in the past, they would go back to the beginning of the last arc, but this time, they just went back a few episodes. Why it would need to be on hiatus for such a short period seems very strange, IMO.

Naruto - First time really watching the show. Surprisingly touching first episode. Looks like it could be good :)

Tenchi Muyo GXP - Finally arived at the GP Academy, and all the characters seem to be in place, so I suppose things will really start to kick off.

ThunderCats - Looks like an episode based off of the "Seven Samurai" concept. ThunderCats help a small village of robotic bears to defend itself against those who want them for slavery.

Samurai 7 - The battle with the bandits rages on. Didn't care too much for the sequence where they were just showing the same stuff over & over again, in slow motion. Oh, and I wasn't expecting that to happen (don't want to ruin it, but I'm sure others who've watched it, understand what I'm getting at).

Sym-Bionic Titan - They finally got to have a showdown with the "Men in Black" like organisation. Also, blood (seriously, that came as a surprise, considering the show's origin. First time I think I've seen that in a kid's action cartoon since Gargoyles).

Eureka 7 - Okay, take refuge in abandoned mine, find clean house with fresh food inside the abandoned mine, and then weird dream sequence. I think that's about it...

It will be interesting to see people's reactions to watching Naruto for the first time. It's, somewhat deservedly, one of the most love it or hate it anime ever. Honestly while I think it does an excellent job as a first episode and introducing the main character and whatnot, I've never really enjoyed this episode. Dunno why really.

where is naruto starting from on Toonami? I'm pretty sure everyone can find something to like about the Zabuza arc. I have a few gripes around the Chunin exams, and then I felt that the series started to drag on around the 4th-5th seasons. I didn't really continue after that, although I heard it only gets worse :/

EDIT: oh wow, from the very first episode? It's gonna take a long long time to get up to date hahaha

I liked the ending to Tsubasa better. It finished it off nicer. xxxHolic made me a little mad at the ending. He never got with that kewt girl either wtf. It was dissapoint.

Toonami will have their 12:30 spot locked up for the next 4+ years, at least.

I was really getting into the last episode of Tokyo Mew Mew I watched. I think because it broke the "no love confession until the ending" rule, if at an anti-climatic and random time and stuff is kinda sort of happening and the villains are starting to be a threat and worth taking seriously.

I don't make these type of jokes, but I'm now probably barred from making fun of guys for liking girly things for the rest of my life.

But seriously, even a genre like magical girl should be looked at as just any anime series but until the last couple of episodes, it had way too much insulting to children's intelligence moments and way too much lack of effort because "WHO CARES, ONLY KIDS WATCH". Ugh. It's really not like awful or anything, and I don't know what I was expecting but somehow there's wasted potential.

I was in a DVD store a while back with some friends and I decided to have a look at a DVD of Madoka. And then I realised my friends were behind me and could probably see the cover, so I put it back and began staring intensely at a Cowboy Bebop box set to try and regain man-points. Man, I wish that stigma were gone as well. There is nothing wrong with Magical Girl, or Shojo, or Josei for that matter

EDIT: I dropped School Rumble after two episodes... Nichijou is hilarious

Holy cow, I'd forgotten all about the different opening theme for English Naruto.

Toonami Saturday night!

Bleach - Repeat!

Naruto - At first I thought this was going to be an annoying episode, but I ended up finding it pretty funny.

Tenchi Muyo GXP - Yeah... Did this actually just happen?

ThunderCats - Ooh look, Elephants! Oh, and there's some bees & a giant rock monster.

Samurai 7 - Looks like the next part of their quest is about to begin! Oh, and they used that really weird squiggly art style again.

Sym-Bionic Titan - The robot has a girlfriend. Yes, you heard that right. I will admit, the art style & certain sound effects in this show that remind me of Dexter's Lab. Given who created the series, that isn't surprising though, and I'm going to start calling it Super Dexter.

Eureka 7 - They got their ship fixed. Oh, and there was some giant robot vs. giant green boomerang bird thing action.

Just browsing around Adult Swim's boards, and it appears that next week, Tenchi Muyo GXP is being pushed back a couple of hours due to extremely poor ratings (that sure didn't take long).

Also (probably because Bleach is on repeats), ThunderCats currently has the strongest ratings on the block.

I didn't recognize it immediately on the first viewing last year but that song towards the end of that episode of Symbionic Titan was from beloved 80s rock band A Flock of Seagulls. The song is called "Space Age Love Song" which has to be why it was used.

With the exception of learning of Queen from the Mighty Ducks movies as a kid, that is the strangest way I've ever decided to listen to more music from a particular band.

This does make me think there was some social commentary considering the contrast compared to the other music used in the episode.

^that's kinda like how I got into the pillows (from watching FLCL) and Spitz (from watching Honey and Clover). Not that strange I guess

also I stopped being a wuss and continued watching xxxHolic. It's pretty good. And all this talk reminded me of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eimNpQOxj5k from my older naruto days. This was always one of my favourite OPs

I'm reading vol. 16 of Bakuman right now and I'm not done with it but I finished the big arc in this issue. That was so amazing. The build up and emotion all the characters had going. The ideas and tricks pulled out in these last chapters were brilliant. Bakuman is so awesome in that it gets me on the edge of my seat and I feel the climax parts of it's arcs are every bit as intense and exciting as some of the best mainstream battles Mangas without ever throwing a punch. The series is a battle of brains and chapter ideas. It's all so lovable and gripping. I'm seriously hooked on this series now. I can't remember the last time I've loved a manga so much. Thanks goodness vol. 17 comes out tomorrow! >:3
