Wow, this anime has possibly the worst voice acting ever.

I don't think it's as bad as Devilman: The Birth's English dub:

Warning, very NSFW.
Seems like for some reason in the English dub they added a ton of unnecessary cursing. Personally I think it makes it funnier, but I'm just warning.

Sav'aaq!

@CaptainSquid back in the 80's nearly all Western cartoons were for kids, so localisers had a hard time making sure that the adult anime would end up in the hands of only adults. This tended to cause localised works to be way, way more explicit than the source material. Naturally this means they're great to laugh at!

Also, I wonder why anyone uses the echoing scream pan like in the last scene of that clip. I still can't stop laughing when I hear Dante yell "I should have been the one to fill your dark soul with liiiiiiiiiiight! (liiiiiiiiiiight!) (liiiiiiiiiiight!) (liiiiiiiiiiight!)"

The first episode of This Ugly Yet Beautiful World was...um...kinda interesting. No idea what to think of this yet.

Just hit the final stretch if six episodes of Star Blazers. Its really one of my favorite anime now and in many regards reminds me a lot of the original Star Trek. For early anime I find the subject matter pretty serious and the serial format are pretty suprsing. I had actually forgotten that Avatar had been diagnosed with radiation poisoning, than boom a few episodes later it comes back.

While its not star trek levels I do like how the Pueadi science if the show while Fantastical is still grounded somewhat in reality. The explanation for the Wave Motion Engine and Gina and why it can't be used as a Lazy way to always win the day is refreshing in days of dues ex machina.

WAT!

Hey check out my awesome new youtube channel shingi70 where I update weekly on the latest gaming and comic news form a level headed perspective.

Yeah, Yamato 2199 holds to that, too, and that's one of the reasons why its one of my favorite Sci-fi shows in years. Nothing ever feels all that farfetch'd and everything just kinda seems to come together one way or another. I love it.

A good ways into Kill la Kill now, and I don't really get it. I like the relationship between Ryuko and Senketsu, since they're funny together and they add heart to the show. Mako's also great. I feel like the rest is quite empty though, since after the initial wow factor of the fights and art style I'm finding it hard to care about the main revenge plot.

Or maybe that's just me.

Let me know how is it compared to the first one.

Haven't seen the original. I was going to watch it some other time. I've only watched the New when I was a kid.

Does anyone think that One Piece might have another Filler-Arc? The previous one was really short, so I'm assuming that another will show up soon. It's just a thought though.

I'm not gonna say it's the best action series I've ever seen but no one watches it for the plot, they watch it to watch intentionally over-the-top characters involved in over-the-top fights for the sake of fun, without being entirely dumb or thoughtless beyond that.

While what kkslider said isn't untrue, I wouldn't drop it so quickly. Granted, I don't know how far you've gotten exactly, but the story does pick up and have more meaning to it. I haven't watched any of the newest episodes yet but I know that the story gets more interesting. But hey, if you do still drop it, while I completely disagree and I think you'd drop it for the wrong reasons... I guess I can understand. The story really is nothing special, but I really think it's good enough in other areas, maybe that's just not your thing.

@CaptainSquid it's probably more due to my anime watching habits, really. I watch before going asleep (the habit started after someone recommended finishing the day with an episode of ARIA) so I gravitate more towards slow paced slice of life shows and dramas. I think Kill la Kill would be awesome to watch with a group of friends and the right atmosphere. I think most of my friends would be turned off by the fanservice though, since I'm pretty much desensitised to it lol.

It does remind me a lot of FLCL, so I'll give it that. I'm at episode 6 right now.

Probably. They're catching up the manga (Both are on Dressrosa now, last I checked, albeit at different points). I'd guess there'd be one after Dressrosa.

I wouldn't call episode 6 a ways into the show. The latest episode (episode 17) just revealed a major plot twist, which will make the show more interesting in my opinion, but I won't blame you if you drop it, considering what your taste is.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?
