I don't know how far you got into Minami-ke but do you remember Hosaka?
He creeps me out, but he is also so funny.

And he keeps stripping, which I don't understand. I don't think Haruka would go for that x3.

The only thing I like about him, is his Curry Song.

I heard Dead Man Wonderland is finally getting a season 2

I wish they'd give Black Bulter and Code Geass a season 3...

Oh really? That'll be interesting...

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

One day you will...or maybe you won't. I understand him completely, though. Maybe it's a guy thing.

Black Butler never shouldn't have gotten a season 2, let alone a Season 3. Season 1 ended pretty well, IMO. Certainly a better job than the Manga was doing last I read it.

And Code Geass has Akito the Exiled. If you haven't watched it yet, do so now.

Halfway through Durarara and they're still introducing characters. There have been so many mind-blow moments in the last few episodes though

I haven't gotten a chance to watch more Planetes despite how awesome it is

and @Konata, that reminds me of Morita's money song haha

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)

@Magikarp

Haha, that's really funny.
What anime is that from? (And what is it about?)
I'm trying to make a list of anime I should watch before I finish Minami-ke, so I won't be scrambling to find something :3

It's from Honey and Clover! It's about five students at an art college, who are really poor - it's a lot like a sitcom in the early episodes, but it develops into more slice-of-life drama in the second season. It's really good!
And I'm subtly telling everyone who sees this to go watch it now!

Watched the first Fatal Fury OVA last night. I know I was informed to skip straight to the second, since this one is the worst of the bunch, but I kinda wanted to see how bad it was for myself

Certainly wasn't as good as the movie, but I still found it to be decently entertaining while it lasted (around 45 minutes). The best fights happened around the final minutes.

I can see why this one isn't very much liked. Most fights (until the last few) are over really quickly (usually in one hit), and even the last few are over pretty quickly. The love story seemed to advance way too fast. Also, even though Geese had supposedly bought out the police, it seemed unnecessarily corny to have him try and have everyone assassinated in the middle of the day where there are dozens (if not hundreds, in some cases) of witnesses. (Also, Andy's hair was a light blue in this one, while blond in the movie. I'm not sure which is canon to the games, but this OVA & the movie are in the same continuity, so that's definitely a contradiction).

BTW, I'm only familiar with the characters thanks to Capcom vs SNK 2 (GCN), so if this OVA absolutely butchers their backstories, I wouldn't know anything about that.

Okay, I just finished up watching Fatal Fury 2: the New Battle on YouTube!

Yeah, this is definitely the better of the two OVAs (and I'd even say better than the movie, although it's fun as well). Between the two OVAs, this one had the better (and longer) fight scenes, better animation (and the same that's used in the movie), and better story. If I had to rank them:

3. Fatal Fury 1 (OVA)
2. Fatal Fury: the Motion Picture (movie)
1. Fatal Fury 2: the New Battle

2 & 1 both being great watches, if you're looking for cheezy martial arts fun.

That's all the Fatal Fury specials I can find on YouTube, though, so now it's time to find something else.

Glad you liked them. I don't think there's anymore FF-related stuff out there, actually, but what we got is quite good in its own right. For cheesy martial arts flicks, at least. There should be some KOF OVAs out there, though I can't remember how good they were...

I guess I must have accidentally deleted my post from earlier.
@Millenia I remember you saying you had read Gravitation so I have a question for you. I was reading volume 2 and was shocked to see Yuki rape Shuichi. Thankfully, I found this forum post saying that it was a mistranslation. Everywhere online seems to have the same translations so do you know anywhere online with a more accurate translation?

Also (while I wait for new chapters of Bleach), I've decided to start reading Deadman Wonderland, since I enjoyed the anime so much.

One thing of interest I'll note, is that I don't think the manga has been quite as graphic, which is the opposite of the usual (in particular, when the "Red Man" attacks the classroom. It's still gruesome, but not on the same level as what was in the anime).

On episode 103 in Fairy Tail
Need about 60 more to be current on the ep.

I've seen a few people give up around the 130's, saying it gets boring. While I'm personally surprised they made it that far, it'd be interesting to see if you manage to pull through.

Anyways, I made it through the Saobady Archipelago arc in One Piece. That arc was all kinds of awesome. Lots of story and backstory, fantastic action, and the ending was just perfect. I can't wait to see them take on more Pacifistas once they're stronger. I'll be taking a long break, though. I need to save up my strength so I can gun through the next two arcs, and get to the next real excitement.

So Durarara has stepped out of mystery and jumped right into supernatural horror with its Slasher arc.. It's amazing how well they built tension without resorting to gratuitous gore or anything of the like, but dang was it not the kind of thing you want to watch at 1am );

Watched Battle Arena Toshinden and part 1 of a 6 part OVA series called Angel Cop on YouTube last night!

As for Battle Arena Toshinden, it's another cheezy martial arts flick (based on another video game, I believe). It's animated & directed by the same group that did the last 2 Fatal Fury specials. While it's not quite as good as the latter FF stuff, it's still pretty entertaining (just a warning, there is a little bit of fanservice during the first half). It's actually 2 half hour OVAs, but whoever posted it on YouTube has them together on one video.

As for Angel Cop, it's a near future (well near future from the point of the 80's) tale, where law enforcers are facing off against a group of Communist terrorists who are intent on bringing down the Japanese economy (as Japan is the world's largest economic superpower in this world).

Isn't Angel Cop the one with the hilarious profanity-tastic dub? Someone linked me some select clips from it and I couldn't stop laughing at how overdone it was. It was like the localisers figured that the anime was too violent for younger audiences, so they added in more profanity in case people couldn't already tell it was for adults :/

Man, dubs have sure come a long way since the 80's

although now I do want to check it out to see if the original was any good

I'm not sure if this is true but I've heard that they used to add in swear words in anime as sentences were often shorter once translated and they needed the sentences to fit with the lip movements. Although, it was probably also just to sound edgy. Here's an example of that sort of dubbing.

RR529

@Canis, yes, both of those are still on YouTube (both posted by the same guy who has posted everything else I have watched so far. They have 52 anime videos up, some for as long as 3 months, so I'm trying to get through as much as I can in case some of it gets taken down).

@Magikarp, yes, it is very over the top, lol (I know it's old though, so I'm willing to overlook the cheezy dub on these sorts of things).
