I think I mostly just watched it because I needed something to do.

While it was occasionally funny and Funimation tried their best with the dub, all of the things that bug me about many shows of its kind (embarrassing fanservice and wish-fulfillment, poor character development, contrived drama, meh art and animation, etc.) were still there. Oh well, at least I can say I gave something outside of my comfort zone a try. Just didn't work out.

Have you tried Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki or Tenchi Universe?

That 2012 Adult Swim/Toonami April Fool's airing of Tenchi Muyo! (oh boy, that dub has not held up well) and a couple of GXP episodes aside, it's been a long time since I've watched anything Tenchi-related. I am open to giving those shows a try, though.

Yeah, Ryo-Ohki & Universe are great, Tenchi in Tokyo is decent, and GXP sucks, lol.

They changed Ryoko's voice for GXP, and the last third of Ryo-Ohki, and the new voice sucks.

Anyone besides me and CrimsonFire13 looking forward to the next episode of Attack on Titan?

Im really looking forward to the next episode.

Titans are like zombies, they just go around eating people, they are not very smart, over grown humans that act like beasts. Well I hope within the next few episode it will explain how titans came to be.

The thing about the titans is they don't need to eat to survive, and don't eat any creatures besides humans. There purpose and origin are unknown. Their sudden appearance and large numbers are what caused most humans to become extinct.

Basically, although they are very primitive and beastlike.

@CrimsonFire13
No, I tend to watch anime more than read manga, although I'm planning on reading this, Death Note, and FMA since they're my favorite animes. Also maybe Bleach and One Piece.

Looks like everyone here is watching Attack on Titan. Really their so many good shows this season. apart from Attack on Titan im following 10 other shows this season compared to the last season.

I also just started watching Mirai Nikki too. Its really gory at times and full of suspense.

I could never have the time or the interest for 10 new shows every season, also I doubt I could stay invested in any of those shows, watching them all at once.

Harem/fanservice shows aren't my thing, but I just watched both seasons of Rosario + Vampire, and I'm now slightly ashamed of myself for doing so.

I'm not normally into shows like that either but I'm considering reading the manga as I've heard that it isn't so overdosed with fanservice and that the story is better as the anime leaves a lot out.

So....anyone think that Warner Bleach movie will pan out? Personally I hope it doesn't, but that's just my opinion.

Based on the history of live action anime adaptations made by Hollywood (such stinkers as Dragonball Evolution, Blood: the Last Vampire, and Speed Racer), it doesn't stand a chance.

I just don't see how they'll capture the show's style, without making look corny.

As I said, I really don't want it to happen cause I can't imagine a good American Live-Action film of Bleach.

Anyone ever read Pokemon Adventures?

It was last talked about Feb 2012. I hope production's stopped...it sounds terrible. Apparently they had the guy who made the script for Clash of the Titans (I know) penning it, and had some other director...(can't remember the name) They had been working on getting the rights to a Bleach movie since 2010, and after their Akira adaptation didn't work, they went to Bleach.

Like Fonist said, the manga's way better, if you're interested. I personally hate the anime version of R+V, but the manga's impressed me so far (though I'm only a few chaters in, I'll admit).
