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.

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)

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?

So are you supposed to be giving an opinion or just recapping?

I guess kinda both. It just depends on what I feel like writing down, I suppose.

I admit, sometimes I recap more than I give thoughts, and vice versa.

I remember being so disappointed at how that fight ended

Just finished One Piece Movie 2, which I do say I liked a bit more. It wasn't amazing or anything, but was pretty good.

Does anyone wanna recommend a manga for me to read? I prefer Shoujo but I'm alright with Shounen too. (Skip beat chapters are being released to far apart so I need something to tide me over.)
I'm looking for one that I might invest in and buy the paperback. (Something I like as much as Ouran .)
I like fantasy, romance, comedy, Harem and stuff like that.
Thank you! ^^.

@Konata, I'd recommend InuYasha, Rurouni Kenshin, or Yu Yu Hakusho.

Yeah, I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, lol.

I would recommend reading Binbougami Ga! if you're interested in comedy, fantasy, and a little bit of romance. It makes a lot of references to other series at the start so you might find more humor in that than I did.

I don't usually like comedies and I thought Binbougami-Ga was great. It has a pretty good story to it, which I'm not used to seeing with comedies.

That sounds great! I'll give it a shot.

I started three new series. Let's talk about them;

  • Outbreak Company: I want to say that this is the otaku-pandering series of the Fall 2013 season, but that would be discrediting the show just a tad. Fresh-out-of-school NEET Shinichi gets recruited/drugged into being the Japanese government's "Entertainment Ambassador" between the real world and a fantasy world. Unfortunately, Shinichi solely cares for everything moe, leading to...interesting reactions and priorities. Admittedly, the show doesn't focus solely on its fantasy female tourism and does have some fitting jokes, including one that left me grinning. If this show can manage to split it's time well between the aforementioned tourism and fitting jokes, I may actually grow to like it despite it containing everything I dislike about anime in general.
  • Beyond The Boundary: I've heard people complain about this show being too slow, but I would say it's too early to make that claim. Assuming that I have accurately predicted the future, the first episode showed the overall quality of animation and established the main characters without getting too "Heavy" on either action or story. It's a good primer episode that gets the basic points across without being immediately unappealing to anyone. Of course, that all may be a load of crap, but time will tell.
  • Michiko & Hatchin: Admittedly this is not a "New" series (it began airing in 2008), but I thought I would discuss this as well. WOW, this show feels like it came from the 90s, at least in premise. And honestly, that's not surprising when you bring up that several co-creators of Cowboy Bebop helped create the show. What probably helps the 90-ism is that Sayo Yamamoto was the series director, an individual that happens to split her time 50/50 between throwback-ish anime and and science-fiction projects.

Also, I've been reading the manga tome that is Akira.

...

...

...What, you expect me to go with the obvious joke? No, I refuse to be so predictable.

KANEDA!!!
