Watching ep 2 of Kill la Kill...oh lord the insane humor at an insane pace in the scene with Mako's family was just so perfect. It's timing was so fast and the humor so random that I couldn't help but crack up.

@Caniswolfred
Watching it yet?

So anyone watching Kill la Kill or Diamond No Ace, except me? Anyone?

I watched Kill la Kill. (I could have sworn I said that here already, lol.) But I need to watch episode 2.
But how's Diamond no Ace? I might give it a try, heck I've given a chance to most of the tiles this season.

Say what now?

I don't have time to go through almost 400 pages of posts, but has anyone else here seen Clannad (and After Story) and Angel Beats? I strongly recommend them if you haven't. Oreimo is a good (if not awkward) anime as well.

I've seen plenty of others, but I figured I'd take a quick poll first.

@Buob I can tell from your DP that you're a Clannad fan I haven't seen it in a while, but it sure is quality drama. I'm not too sure on Oreimo, mostly because of the awkward humour though. And welcome to the thread!

I might jump into Kill la Kill to see what it's like. Also, I'm heading towards the end of Silver Spoon and it's kept a great mix of humour and drama - I highly recommend it to anyone who skipped it last season!

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)

Guys guys! There's an anime ad...WHILE I'M IN THE ANIME THREAD!!!

It's Daisuke's Kill La Kill, too, which is nice. It's like the whole forum is trying to make sure I get around to that show. XD

I almost forgot that I had decided after watching the review that it would be fun to watch around Halloween next year.

...hmm...

The first episode was weeeeird.

And not necessarily in the ways you expect from Japan. It was weird because it was almost kinda a normal show? Maybe. It's like the looked at several genres and tried to turn them into a bizarre supernatural story that would completely still fit a shonen sort of feel. I think.

...it was weird. Like it was a murder mystery shonen adult supernatural dramatic...comedy?

Diamond No Ace is pretty good.

So, today was an odd anime-viewing day for me;

  • Sunday Without God: I finished this series and it's stupid. It obsesses way too much on surprising the viewer that it forgets to add any characterization or character development whatsoever. Not to mention that the first three episodes are horrifically baffling, with each of them trying to say that a mass murderer is also someone who's making a better world.
  • Log Horizon: Also known as Totally-Not-Sword-Art-Online, I liked the debut episode of this series. I'm not liking it to the degree that I loved Sword Art Online during its honeymoon period (the first 3 episodes), but from what I've read and heard the show seems to be hitting its mark of a more lighthearted version of the plot SAO tried to be. Of course, I've only seen one episode, but I'm thankfully neither hooked nor deterred by this show to feel any real loss if the plot gets turned around. Right now, it's a fun distraction.

I'm now starting to venture into those Studio Ghibli films. Just picked up MY Neighbour Totoro on Bluray, which is the black sheep of my spookylicious halloween Horor lineup, but eh...I'm dieing to see it! Ghibli = Disney of Japan.

Well I just finished One Piece movie one. I gotta say, it was pretty nice. At first I didn't really like it, but by the end I decided it was pretty good for a One Piece movie. It had a average story, but the characters were great as always. The message was also quite nice. Overall I liked it.

Couldn't find Kill la Kill last night so watched Arpeggio of Blue Steel instead. It's a CG explosion heavy thriller with some political elements. Naval battles are always fun to watch (although not so much when they're as unbalanced as this series) and the setting is interesting, although we didn't get any introduction of the characters except the main two. Probably won't keep watching.

I saw the trailer for Nagi no Asukara and I must admit, it's winning me over with its wonderful animation of ocean and underwater scenes. Reminds me of ARIA. And to round out this season I might also watch Golden Time, which thankfully seems to be genuinely funny.

One Piece began one of my favorites arcs ever, followed by a Soul Eater episode that gets everything right at every angle for a story that could've sucked really easily.

...

WHY IS SAO THE ONE THAT AFFECTED ME THIS EMOTIONALLY? I know I'm weak to genuinely cute happy couple scenes, but cmon! Even subjectively I don't find this series all that great, so it I am very confused by this.

Toonami Saturday night!

Bleach - Missed it.

Naruto - the epic battle between Naruto & Kiba has come to a conclusion! Hinata makes her move, but Naruto has to be the most romantically oblivious character in all of anime, lol.

One Piece - The mysterious new guy reveals his identity, but Luffy & the others join up with him temporarily to save some castaways. Peace is short lived, however, and things aren't going so hot for the crew...

Soul Eater - Episode of the night! Looks like things are going to be coming to a head between the DWMA & Arachnaphobia soon, and after a bit of soul searching, the gang's bond has reached a new level. Stein is having trouble keeping his composure, however.

Sword Art Online - Kirito & Asuna are taking a bit of a break from the fight, but run into an amnesiac mystery child, who has some interesting "names" for our heroes, and seems to have a strange effect on the game world. What could this possibly mean?
