I've started watching Welcome to the NHK the past couple of days, and I'm really enjoying it. I feel like it's struck a nice balance so far between nerdy comedy and seriously examining Sato as a character.

Welcome to the NHK is a masterpiece. Mainly what I love about it is how despite having a wacky sense of humor of sorts, it somehow feels almost disturbingly real and the more it goes on, the more the comedy becomes depressing. I'll admit it's...almost a little too real for me to handle at times.

wow and here i thought i was the only one who had watched welcome to the nhk...but that rly is a nice way to describe it

it does have some weird yet interesting view at things and the comedy is good kinda wish they had a second season though to find out more of what happens to sato u know what i mean?

i also saw eaden of the east kinda weird o.o too short

Yeah Eden of the East is a bit short, but the two movies help to flesh out the remainder of the plot. I thought it was alright.

Also, I just finished watching Star Driver and enjoyed it. It wasn't the greatest thing I've seen, but I thought it was enjoyable at the very least. And how can you go wrong with giant robots with superpowers?

On a different note, I'm trying to figure out whether or not to watch Mawaru Penguindrum. It seems interesting, but I don't really have an idea what the overall theme of the show is, or even if it's something that would fit my taste. Anyone here seen Penguindrum, and if so, is it good?

Toonami Saturday night (Pt. 1)!

I missed Bleach & Naruto tonight.

ThunderCats - Interesting episode. Very predictable, though.

Currently missing Samurai 7 & Sym-Bionic Titan, because my brother has commandeered the TV, so he can play the 360.

Hope he'll be off in enough time for me to catch Eureka 7 & Tenchi Muyo GXP.

Toonami Saturday night (part 2)!

Eureka 7 - Pretty good episode. More tension between Eureka & Renton. Renton's gotten pretty good at piloting the Nirvash. Oh, and Holland (ha ha, you're named after a country ) blaming Renton for everything that goes wrong, because that's what he does.

Tenchi Muyo GXP - Pretty par for the course, as far as this series goes (I'm just waiting for the cameos from the original Tenchi to start picking up).

Oh, and they reviewed XCOM: Enemy Unknown for the Xbox 360 (gave it an 8/10). T.O.M. even referenced the classic "engrish" gaming phrase, "all your base belong to us".

You know I will give Bleach one thing vs. Naruto.

The early less serious stories are infinitely better than Naruto's. I mean Kishimoto probably knew it since that ends with episode 6 but I really don't like the first 3 episodes of Naruto in retrospect despite being a legit fan of the series. It's comedy that's not...funny for the most part and while I can defend early stupidity to lead to good character development (which it does), it's just too much.

Naruto's first arc (the one with Zabuza) was really good in my opinion, although the pacing was a bit slower than I was used to. Forest of Death was... alright and then I lost interest. I think I'm repeating myself

I started up Planetes last night and by golly it was beautiful :') Hard sci-fi with a nice cast of characters and such smooth animation, especially in zero-g scenes... Between Cowboy Bebop, Kids on the Slope and this anime, I think I love Sunrise

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

I love Planetes, it's one of my absolute favorites.

Is this your first time watching it? Because, just as a heads up, the second half of the show can be pretty rough going at times. Kurt Vonnegut once said of fiction writing "Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them - in order that the reader may see what they are made of.". And Planetes takes that message to heart; it is absolutely not afraid to make its characters suffer or ask very difficult questions of them.

I just picked up the first volume of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga, and it was pretty good. I absolutely adored FMA:B, and the 2003 FMA to a lesser extent.

I finally made it to the last season of Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. I'm not exactly sure why just yet but the last season was never released in English because it was nearly impossible to edit to be suitable for American children. (You know basically anything goes in Japan, haha) Anyway that being said, Sailor Moon tops every anime I have ever seen. I think it's common knowledge that the series was completely butchered up and basically ruined when brought over to America. If anyone has overlooked it as childish, I urge you to check out the original Japanese version.

yeah, I heard the drama gets pretty heavy towards the end of the series. That's actually one of the reasons I'm watching it maybe I'm a sadist too :/

would you recommend dub or sub? I started on the dub, and it's not that bad imo

You should be fine with either one.

He means the current season premiering in Japan, which also happen to be legally streamed on Non-Japanese Websites like Hulu and Crunchyroll. In fact, these days, we get about 90% of what's shown on Japanese TVs! O_O

I'll agree that it's better uncut in Japanese than in English. That said, I was never a big fan of Sailor Moon, or most Magical Girl shows for tha matter. That said, I do like the Pretty Cure (PreCure) franchise, which I found to be very much like Sailor Moon, but less controversial, and better enough in nearly every way (not a lot better, but enough) to make it enjoyable for me. Have you ever seen it before? If not, I think you might like it.

I agree, though slow, I loved the beginning of Naruto, though it lost my interest after a while.

Also, everyone should already love Sunrise for giving the world the gift of Gundam. And GaoGaiGar. And Code Geass. Amd Pretty Cure.
(And I really gotta watch Planetes someday...)

I loved the first episode of Naruto, but otherwise I gotta agree, the first few episodes of are pretty lame in comparison to Bleach.

I'm not gonna lie, I can't think of any Super Robot show I genuinely did not like. You might be on to something.

As for Penguindrum, all I can tell you is what I've heard, which is that it's a very inconsistant show. The plot is kind of all over place, for better or for worse. I'd definitely do a lot of research into it before I'd give it a shot if I were you. It was very love of hate at the anime forums I used to go to.

Is onemanga.com working for anyone else? I haven't been able to get on it for the past week.

OneManga.com shut down ages ago, but their forum recently shut down for good. OneManga.me, however, is working just fine for me.

As for me, I watched a lot of One Piece recently, and got all the way through Water 7, Enies Lobby, and Post Enies Lobby, and now I'm halfway through Thriller Bark. Needless to say, it's been non-stop thrills this entire time. I love it. Will be taking a break once I get through Sabaody, though. A very long break, most likely.

I've been kinda wanting to watch Robotics;Notes after watching the genius that was Steins;Gate but if it's like Steins;Gate I wouldn't be able to wait for some of the middle parts of the anime.
