Rewatched disc 1 of Teknoman. Still a fun watch.

Yesterday & so far today I have watched.

Ghost in the Shell Arise OVA Part 2 on BD an extremely excellent episode showing the formation of Section 9. I love the major's recruiting methods!

Followed by Girls und Panzer on BD an extremely fun show, highly recommended.

Then Kokoro Connect OVA on BD, a rather serious set of 4 OVA episodes.

An I have now started the first 4 episodes of Humanity has declined on BD .....trippy, fun trippy but trippy.

I just watched Sword Art Online Extra Edition. I thought I'd read that it was about 60 minutes, and sort of planned to watch some other stuff. But it's 100 minutes. Still, I enjoyed it.

Finished Noir very late to the party but better late than never.

I thought it was great, the story was interesting and the action was quite well done (despite some occasionally obvious shortcuts in the animation but I can let those slide because it's unrealistic to expect a flawless production).
Noir reeked of tasteful sensuality through and through and I give it props for doing so without a single panty shot or sexual cleavage shot. The soundtrack was fantastic (Canta Per Me is going straight into my "Best of Kajiura" playlist along with quite a few others as soon as my copy of the soundtracks arrive). While the pacing was a bit uneven I found the show went at the pace it needed to at any given moment outside of the last handful of episodes where it felt clear that they didn't really have enough story for the remaining episodes but couldn't get away with a filler.

All in all I enjoyed it a lot and hope to watch it again in the future. Now the only "Girls With Guns" trilogy entry I have not yet seen is Madlax, which I unfortunately do not own yet. (I also plan to get the soundtracks to that, although I'm told it's one of Kajiura's least stunning works, if for nothing else I need it for 'Nowhere')

Finished watching Kekkaishi and it was pretty enjoyable and interesting in compairing the first 13 volumes of the manga to the 52 ep series that Viz released.

There were some changes, both minor and major during the 2nd half of the series. It mainly dealt with a character missing in the anime during a scene or additional information including background info that wasn't done in the manga. Those were the majority of differences, but the main difference was that Tokine followed Yoshimori into the Kokuboro and interacted with characters that were either done by other people in the manga or didn't exist at all. She took up a lot in that section in the manga when compaired to the bit part she played in the manga at that time. The battle with Kojiro was also different for a good part.

It did stay with the heart of the characters during the series, but since the anime didn't carry on to the 2nd and 3rd arcs of the manga, it doesn't feel complete.


It's still worth the watch, but I do recomend getting the manga if you want to find out what happens at the end of the series.

I have also been watching Kokoro Connect. I was wondering if I was going to regret purchasing it because I'd read mixed reviews. I liked it, although it isn't the best thing ever. It's just fun to watch.

Also started watching Macross (first series) and I'm very sad I can't find a copy of the series anywhere on DVD. I know, I'm way too late to get into that show, but I am enjoying it thus far. The soundtrack, characters and writing are fantastic! Even though it looks like ****. Does anyone know where i can get an official copy? As far as I know Madman stopped making the first series.


Looking forward to buying the 4-part ova set for Kokoro connect soon.

I'm tempted to get the Japanese (with English dub) blu-ray of Noir purely on the strength of the soundtrack. Indio is an incredible song.

Madlax is still has a good soundtrack. (I've seen Nowhere performed live twice and have it on blu-ray by FictionJunction YUUKA and Yuuka Nanri).

I definitely do not doubt that, to me, a poor Kajiura soundtrack is something good from anyone else Razz

I managed to find time to watch Last Exile: Fam the Silver wing (set 1) over the past few days, and really enjoyed it Smile

Same sort of vibe as the original series, I like the way they've kept the music/visual style very similar (and I think reused, or rescored some of the music for certain sorts of events), and I'm thoroughly looking forward to seeing the second half when it's released Smile


I'm probably going to try and watch Black Lagoon series 1 and 2 next, hopefully this week.

My friend finally watched the end of Tiger and Bunny and he loved every moment of it when he was at my place yesterday.

I also put on the first 2 eps of Campione which he liked, but he didn't like the old school artwork when I played the first ep of Miami Guns.

On crunchyroll only shows from previous season which are still airing that I am watching are Log Horizon and Nagi No Asukra. So far this season only show I have picked up in Seitokai Yakuindomo season 2. Love it just as much as season 1 but always leaves me feeling like I shouldn't like the show even though I love it.

Out of my DVDs finally started watching Dragon Ball GT and it's been very hard to get through. It has an 80s feel to it which doesn't suit the show after DBZ, maybe if it went Dragon Ball, and then GT it wouldn't be so annoying. I keep wanting to yell at Trunks that he's a super saiyan and shouldn't act so wimpy. Few moments I liked, majority of them involving Bulma.

Finished watching Medaka Box Abnormal a reasonable series, not quite as good as season 1. But the ending...... Mad Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil Rolling Eyes WHAT ENDING???? It was all going great until the very end & then they throw a right royal cliffhanger at the end of second last episode. As for the last episode it was essentially filler with a bit of back story for the character at the cliffhanger.

I finished watching season 2 of Black Lagoon over the weekend, which was as good as I remember, but more brutal.

I'm going to try and watch either Arawakawa under the bridge season 2 or Wolf Children in the next couple of days Smile (it seems like I'm struggling to find any time to watch anime at the moment, I've gone from a regular 2 hours a night to about 2 hours a week:( )

Watched the first two episodes of the new Chunibyo. I'd forgotten how ridiculous the battles were. It was odd seeing Kumin involved in the battle though; she just seemed to exist on the periphery of the group. Perhaps something happened between the series that dragged her into the group's, what's the word, delusions?

Fun and ridiculous.

I haven't visited these Madboards for ages.
A long time ago, in a Borders Bookshop sale now far far away, I bought a multitude of anime. I've been slowly working my way through that back log, some good, some not so good. I'm about to start Berserk (Never seen an ep).
With so much to see and an unexpected reduction of opportunities for me to enjoy this pastime, it's taken much longer than I thought and I still have about 4 series left.
In that time new purchases have been very limited. I recently saw a story on the NHK WORLD channel on SPACE DANDY (SD). I love COWBOY BEBOP and SAMUARI SHAMPLOO. I just viewed SD episode one. It's a another cracking anime from this fellow and I'll be tuning into the stream and buying the Blu-rays as they are released. Thank you MADMAN!

I ended up putting on Otaku no video over the last couple of nights, it's been sat on the side for a bit and I thought it's short enough I should be able to watch it in an evening (it took two! ;p).

It's slightly odd (but less so than many Gainax things), and quite enjoyable, a mix of an animated story about a guy falling into Otaku culture, and short interviews with otakus (which I'm fairly sure were scripted and played by actors, if not Gainax staff for some of them...).

The anime part is sort of like a proto Genshiken or similar, taken further^

Tonight as the second part of Last Exile: Fam the silver wing arrived a bit early, I'm going to make a start on that Smile
That assumes I can find the time (currently sorting my collection out, discs everywhere).


^Which reminds me, I have the Genshiken Omnibus editions to read (they've been sat on the side since they were released...so much anime/manga/video games, so little free time/energy).

Last night I watched the first disc of Kanon on Blu Ray. As expected it looked & sounded excellent on BD, interestingly for a JP BD release they actually subbed the signs.

Also... I'd assumed that matoi was there as the ren'youkei of matou, "clad, garbed in", but google translate is pegging "ματωι λευκό" [matōi leuko] as "bleeding white". Not sure I trust that, though [certainly it's not like I know any greek beyond the usual.]

Well, one of them is Hideaki Anno, so yeah.

Also, if you're wondering what the bunny girl is referencing, it's this video.

Finally got around to watching Space Dandy. It is amazing.

ive watched a lot since my last post and i cant remember most of it, but recently ive finished Wolf's Rain which i thought was pretty decent. Season 1 of Tsubasa Reservoir chronicles which i thought was a bit slow to start but it picked up as the season progressed. Season 1 of Tegami Bachi which i enjoyed just as much as the first time i watched it and am currently watching season 2. and i just finished Aria the Scarlet Ammo which i enjoyed. I had seen it subbed before so this was the first time watching it dubbed and i really liked the voices for the characters.

Finished Kyousougiga. Very very good... but if ever a show would have worked better as an OVA it's this one.


Also started <i>Hyouka</i>. I'm not actually a huge fan of detective stories: there are a few I enjoy, but it's more for the character sketches than the whodunnit, and this one tends to favour the latter [it's actually pretty well done for what it is, and I recommend it, but it's just not quite my thing the way, say, Gosick is].

But this one's worth watching for the animation alone. I mean, it could be "people doing their laundry: the animation" and if it looked like this I'd watch it. No jokes.

I take it you watched the TV version then. back in 2012 the series had a ONA series released last year was a tv series.


I finished Wolf Children the other day and absolutely loved it. The story was excellent, the art was great and i loved the music too. The only thing that could have made it better for me was if it followed the 2 children until the were older.

I also watched Horizon in the middle of nowhere season 2 and like season 1 it was confusing but i still really liked it and the way it ends im hoping for a third season.

After that i watched Highschool DxD and i thought the dub was pretty decent. Looking forward to season 2 getting dubbed now cause i really enjoyed season 2 as it aired.

Im currently watching Haganai and im liking the dub voices in this one too. Another show im looking forward to its season 2 getting dubbed as well.

I just finished Last Exile: Fam the silver Wing, which was very good I thought Smile

It seemed to be as convoluted as the original series, and very much in the same style both visually and audibly.

Its kinda funny that you just finished Fam the silver wing as i just started watching the first series so once i finish that ill start on Fam.

either way its been 2 years since i last watched last exile so its a good refresher so i can remember everything that has happened

From the first few episodes, Witch Craft Works looks like someone took pure 100% bolivian bakemonogatari and cut it with enough inert harem filler to make it safe for the unadapted.

Which is a damn sight better than I was expecting. Even what it's cut with is reasonably non-skeevy, compared with, say, "bra-shopping with oniichan: a primer for twelve-year-olds", or "mildly retarded wheelchair girls: dead sexy?" or what-have-you.

[which reminds me, I need to rewatch hitagi crab: the last arc of 'monogatari was dropping some pretty broad hints about the relationship between senjougahara and Kaiki, and I need to recheck the context. My guess is father's ex-lover, partially because if kaiki's ties were with hitagi's mother it would lead to a rather stupid cliche, but also for other reasons.

Yesterday instead of watching something in my (too large) backlog, I decided to rewatch Solty Rei instead. It has been about 5 years since I last watched it & I didn't really feel like watching anything new. The show after so long since I watched held up rather well.

I watched The Pilot's Love Song and Super Sonico the Animation episodes 7.

PLS is okay. The aerial animation can be good, but it doesn't quite reach Last Exile level. The first major air battle of the series occurred. Last episode, a couple of the minor characters hooked up, and it all but lacked a big flashing sign saying "this character is going to die next episode." The title of today's episode, A Glorious Death, didn't help. I at least wanted him to be that guy. Y'know, he appears to die half-way through, but at the end of the move/series, he's seen linmping back to base, with a "it's just a scratch" mentality.

SoniAni had a real change of pace this episode. Sonico takes a country trip, with no real destination in mind. At times, you expect the cast of Non Non Biyori to show up. Still, All the people she meets are helpful and friendly. Makes up for the lack of her manager.

I’ve been watching recently

Baka and test season1
Actually quite surprised enjoyed this one, whenever i looked at the trailers and it never took my interest definitely going to get season 2

Majikoi samurai girls
This looked alright but it just an average ecchi thing, I might give "we without wings" ago but if that is crap I will leave ecchi series alone for a while. I guess Highschool DxD was a one off

Still watching mayo chiki about 3 episodes to go
I must say that it is awesome Smile really enjoying it perhaps slightly more than baka and test. I wish it had an English dub Smile

Last night I watched Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin movie on BD, looked & sounded excellent as expected, I was little lost due to no subs but highly enjoyed it despite of that. I then watched the Extra Chorus extra disc which is a succession of related short stories. I had to love some of Shiki's & Azaka's expressions in these stories, a pouting Shiki is so unusual!

I then watched the first 2 episodes of Noir on BD. This has the ADV dub (no subs) and looks & sounds excellent on Blu Ray.

Get the OVA as well, it goes between the two series and is directly referenced in the second series. I saw the second series before the OVA, and wondered what the heck the reference was to.

For those who are watching Hyouka but don't have a strong background in '70s shoujo manga: They Were Eleven is, as well as SF, also a detective/mystery story.

This is a very, very very meta show I'm watching.

[also rather better than I thought it would be, and I was expecting decent-or-better.]

I finished last exile and enjoyed it as much as the first time. i then went on to watch fam the silver wing which i really liked. it was a bit confusing with how it tied into the previous season but if you ignore that fact, its pretty good. After that i went on to watch Is This a Zombie of the Dead and loved it. i really hope they make a season 3 of this show. after that i watched the K-On Movie and thought they did a decent job with the dub for the majority of the movie being in London. And finally i just finished Naruto Shippuden the Movie The lost tower. Its been quite some time since i last saw this movie so it was good to re watch it. Next up i have decided to re watch kamisama dolls now that i own in on dvd.

Just watched episode 20 of Gundam Build Fighters. Wow... that was brutal. If ever I had any doubt this series couldn't pull off serious drama, this episode just proved me wrong.

Finished Blue Exorcist
that was good, really enjoyed the series and the last episode was amazing Smile

Watched Fariy Tail collection 1
I liked it, I read the back and it referenced one piece was surprised I don't like one piece but I sure like this Smile

Finished Mayo-chiki
I loved it, id prefer it to be english dubbed but eh, I still loved it wish it had a proper ending. Not the worst I have seen but neither the best

EDIT: was surprised to see aria the scarlet ammo and Kampfer in a couple of the scenes as well

Watched maken-ki
It was alright I suppose ?, honestly don't care for it and it seem to have no personality of its own I can not really remember what happened at the start or most of the arcs anymore. I did get it for free

i finished off kamisama dolls and i liked the choices of the dub cast but like most Sentai dubs the voices don't match the mouth movements very well which kind of ruins the experience. Now im watching Blood C and from what i have seen so far, Funimation has done a great job at dubbing it. cant wait to watch the movie after the series as i haven't seen it yet.
