Somehow I feel ignored. ._.

I spent my week grinding the two seasons of A Certain Magical Index and I kind of regret it. I felt a little disappointed as this wasn't my kind of anime. The first two arcs were interesting, but then it started to lose focus on the other characters and they just stuck to the main one. The enemies were always attacking the same city over and over again and some of the heroes seem to survive the impossible. I could go on but I'd rather wait until I finish A Certain Scientific Railgun since the story is a lot of more interesting and darker.

I didn't ignore you. You apparently didn't like any of them, though. I'm just saying, I have no one to discuss things with, and not just here. I go to 3 other forums, including an anime forum, ad it's the same thing at all 3. Either it's too old, or it's it's something new that no one else cares about. I wanna join the club, but the club doesn't want me.

I mean, I don't like following the crowd for the sake of it, but still...I guess if it means I get to watch what I want, it's fine, but it's getting boring writing lengthy posts that I'm sure no one reads...

You mean the new anime you're watching? I mostly stick to modern anime but I'll watch some of the older stuff if I have time.

I did say I had a favorite anime from this season, but I doubt you'll like it. As for the ones with 24+ episodes, like Aldnoah.Zero or Argevollen, I can't trust myself to focus on my studies for the upcoming school semester if they end up being good. Tokyo Ghoul and Terror in Resonance don't fit my interests, and I haven't watched the first season of Psycho Pass or Black Butler so the new seasons are not on my watch list.

Has anyone seen the new Persona 4 Golden anime? I thought it was okay, but nothing too special. IMO, you should go watch the original anime, since I have a feeling this'll be condensed down to a 13-episodes run covering only the new content added in Golden (which is a shame really, since the original P4 animation is one of my favorite animes)...

Terror in Resonance was a blast (both literally and figuratively)! Yoko Kanno continues to prove that jazz music can go with everything. Only real complaint is that there's a weird vague sci-fi backdrop which might make the mystery elements seem like a bit of a cop-out. It reminds me a lot of Eden of the East, actually, with how Lisa gets sucked into the world of Nine and Twelve.

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)

Just watch a random episode of the first season of Sword Art Online (this was my first take on the series) And I'm going to agree with the people that said that is a poorly written show and only cares about making Kirito unstoppable and he can do whatever he wants.

I don't even want to watch the rest of it now.

@GuardianKing I saw the first episode and I agree with you it look like they're just adding in the Marie content (lame). The first anime was boring too, it was just too rushed to be interesting.

@Kuuko I don't think you'll like Black Butler judging from what I've read from your posts. I feel like it tries too hard to make the main character be like Light from Deathnote, the show and manga really like to shove the subtle (but not too subtle) homoerotic content down your throat, and it has a plot but it doesn't go anywhere with it (well unless you want the fake anime ending [which gets ruined by season 2 anyways] the manga doesn't go anywhere with the plot).

@Blast: The show had potential I'll give it that, being trapped in a VRMMORPG where players have to work together in order to clear the 100 floors was very neat of a idea, but then it decided to do a 180 in front of our eyes because everything the players do is to make Kirito look cool and he think he's the only one that matters. The romance between Kirito and Asuna was force for sure. My impression of it was like "Hey, I just met you and this is crazy, but let's get marry and become parents".

Also the force harem element, I have no problem if the show wants to be a harem, but don't just simply put it in to drawn in more viewers for the show, by making Kirito a chick magnet (I'm going to assume it's the black coat that's causing it, because he's too shallow and bland to make the ladies fall head over heels for him), and then just toss the females that Kirito meets aside for Asuna without doing any character development whatsoever (hell, I think the show has no character development at all). And even when he marries Asuna (which destroyed the idea of becoming a harem) the writer thought it would be a good idea to have more ladies fall for him, even when Kirito said Asuna would be the only one for him.

And I heard that Asuna gets molested from a pair of tentacle monsters and the main villain of the 2nd arc and it was done very poorly and distasteful.

In otherwords, you saw the second half, since most of the problems you listed are from just the second half. The first half is much better and you don't even really have to go on to the second half since it's ends just find in the first half.

So me and my brother were browsing Netflix and for some reason every season of the new Beyblade is up on there. He decided to watch the very last episode.
My god. I have never seen someone try to so desperately make spinning tops intense. The fight ends up going to outer space, piercing through an artificial sun, and killing a man by going straight through his chest. Wow.

I did had some bad problems with the first half, example: in episode 10 where Kirito joins Asuna's guild he tells her the reason why he was a lone wolf because he let his own guild members die because he didn't warn them that it was a trap from the beginning and after that he decided to be alone because he didn't want anyone to die anymore, but would do anything to keep that from happening again. Ironically the next day he's group into a three man team with Godfrey and another team member for a little training session and one of the fellow members betrays them by adding a paralyzing status in their drink, Kirito and Godfrey are at the mercy of the traitor, so the traitor tortures Godfrey first in order to savior the moment for Kirito, we see Godfrey being slash at while Kirito watches in fear, after Godfrey being on his last ounce of HP left we still see Kirito silent and the traitor leads the death blow on Godfrey.

This where it becomes a problem for me, before they left on the journey Asuna stated that Kirito is stronger than Godfrey and Kirito decided to let Godfrey die without even saying a freaking word like "I'm the one you want" or saying "Stop it", when finally came his turn, Kirito thought he would break free from the paralyzing through sheer willpower, just because he's Kirito, but Asuna comes in and saves the day bringing the traitor into his knees and begging for forgiveness, but Asuna lacking common sense decides to lower her guard and the traitor goes for the attack only to be protected by Kirito (since she can't do anything without him) at end who deals the death blow to the traitor.

I've been watching the dub of Doraemon. It's pretty good despite the Americanizations and the fact that everyone seems to know who Doraemon is, despite only showing Nobita (Noby) being introduced to him.

I'm considering reading Assassination Classroom. The first chapter really hooked me, and an anime is supposed to be starting soon.

And on the subject of Digimon, Tamers is my favorite. I like all the series with the one exception of Adventure 02's ending. It was like something out of a bad fanfiction...

Well, sorry to have been gone for a while (and I'm leaving pretty quickly too, going to camp tomorrow) But recently I finished marathoning the Greed Island, and Chimera Ant Arcs of Hunter X Hunter, and the Water 7/Ennies Lobby Arcs of One Piece. I've gotta say, Hunter X Hunter might have become my favorite anime of all time with the Chimera Ant Arc, which is undoubtedly my favorite shounen arc of all time.

Toonami Saturday Night!

Attack on Titan - Missed it.

Bleach - Missed it.

Space Dandy - Missed the first ten minutes. From what I saw, it was a pretty good episode, though maybe surprisingly serious (by SD standards, at least)?

Naruto Shippuden - Pretty standard shonen stuff here. Fights were good, and they manage to overcome with the power of a promise! (Though it was a bit silly that all these experienced, trained fighters were so shocked by the revelation that they actually get tired the longer they fight, like they had no idea that happens. They actually had to have it explained to them at one point, believing their opponents were getting stronger over the course of the fight, instead of them simply getting winded...).

One Piece - Pretty good episode. Things are getting really intense.

Blue Exorcist - Pretty par for the course as far as this series is concerned.

Black Lagoon - The fire fight is underway, and the Lagoon Company is literally in the position of either roasting in the oven or jumping into the frying pan.

I've also missed Attack on Titan and Bleach, because I was to busy watching Rurouni Kenshin. When I was at toonami. I was gonna watch Fullmetal Alchemist but then I realized it WAS 4:00 A.M. Then I have to sleep at that time. I don't want to stay up until 6:00 A.M. Otherwise, I would get NO sleep at all.

Yeah, I actually used to stay up and watch the whole block (though it ends at 5 A.M. in my time zone) when they still had InuYasha, but now I don't bother to stay up that late, lol.

Hope you enjoy Rurouni Kenshin, btw.

Okay, I need some help on picking a anime to watch again (yes, I'm bored). Here are the 4 choices I'm mostly leading on:

Bubblegum Crisis (Original)
Gunsmith Cats
Trigun
Outlaw Star

Thanks guys. Also, any of the summer shows you guys are enjoying or plan on watching?

I'd say Gunsmith Cats was my least favorite out of these, if that helps. Trigun would definitely be my top pick, but Outlaw Star holds a special place in my heart, too. Bubblegun Crisis is also pretty good if you watch it subbed, just not quite Trigun/Outlaw Star levels.
