It lives again!

So, I heard from another topic that some of you guys like anime?

We have a MAL club so you can stalk other duders and see what they're currently watching or have watched. We also have a Steam group if you just want to play some of these videogames I've heard so much about!

MAL Club: http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=31927

Steam group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/gbad

No discussion of illegal activities allowed and please put all spoilers in spoiler tags!

If you want to join in on the discussion, you can watch anime legally at places likehttp://www.crunchyroll.com/or Netflix!

Anyway, I'm glad we made it through an entire thread without getting trolled or derailed to a lock!

Not at all. It saw that another Sonic account was on the horizon, so it sacrificed itself to destroy them once and for all. THAT THREAD IS A HERO!

We should also make this the Manga discussion thread as well.

So Medaka Box is pretty good, eh?

@No0b0rAmA: I really like Tsuritama, like..A lot. It's really quirky and kind of has a lot of info about real fishing, but there's also some decent character development and an over-the-top, silly plot!

It's definitely not for everyone, but I can't help but love it due to how quirky it is.

Also; I love the art.

Good idea. We'll have to contact a Mod for the name change, however. (and mabye for a pin).

@believer258: It was most likely due to a bug in the system. who created the original thread never received a PM about his thread being deleted so I doubt any of the mods did it.

Sounds like we just had the most rotten luck on the forum!

@ManU_Fan10ne: Kids on the Slope is alright. I've never been a big fan of romance shows with that many people in play at once and I also think it's a little rushed from time to time.

Music is fantastic though and there are definitely people out there enjoying it a lot more than I am.

@Bocam: Oh really? odd.

@Bocam: Wait, really? I'm gonna try to place the image first, highlight it and then click the spoiler block button and see what happens...

EDIT: Woah it looked like it was going to work but then it didn't post. That might be a bug?

EDIT2: Man even when I try to mess with it in the code option for parchment it's still all busted. Oh well, I can imagine designing the code for spoiler tags to work with the odd way images work on these forums to be a tricky process.

EDIT 3: So I finally got it to work; you just have to go to code mode and do an old-fashioned straight-up html <img src="..." alt="" /> in code mode editing the div for the spoiler itself. For some reason the parchment options will mess it up. Probably has to do with the different javascripts and their associated divs being in conflict.

Anyone check out Rideback? I thought it was pretty cool. Not great, but cool. Only 12 episodes, so it wasn't much of a time investment.

@Cloudenvy: Hosoda films are almost always brilliant. I really liked Summer Wars, too, but I'd still say the The Girl Who Leapt Through Time would be my all-time favorite of his films.

My all time favorite anime film ever would actually be 5 Centimeters Per Second. Hit me personally since I could actually sympathize with the premise. Such a poignant, bittersweet film!

#38 Posted by WickedCestus (3781 posts) -

@EquitasInvictus: When I first watched 5cm Per Second I didn't really get it, but on my second viewing I really liked it. I've never seen Summer Wars though, is it any good? Only thing I've heard is that it's like Digimon, which doesn't seem very promising...

#39 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

@EquitasInvictus: Weirdly enough I kind of don't like Summer Wars. It just seemed like he went "Remember that really good Digimon movie I made a while back? well, I want to remake that but kind of make it worse and have it be double the runtime!". I still have high hopes for his new movie though.

@ManU_Fan10ne: It's good.  You should watch it.
 
Alright, real Moyashimon talk.  After 4 episodes of watching the live action adaptation, man that show is weird, and that's saying something if the source material involves a guy that can see microbes with his naked eye.  The main problem has to do with its attempt to replicate the anime's sense of humor, which simply comes off as stilted acting.  Tropes like one person gaping in fear as another screams at him looks pretty funny in animation, but replace it with real people and well, there is a whole lot of dissonance there.  
 
That said, I'll keep watching it.  The microbes are far more adorable in CG form and the actress they had to play Kei looks really fucking hot.

@DonChipotle: Yeah, Major is awesome. Sports Anime always tend to be my favorites. Shame that Season 6 was pretty weak because of all the unnecessary filler they added, even though the Manga was already finished by the time. The 2 OVA series that came out after were worth it though.

In my mind, season 5 was the real finale to the series. Seriously, that last episode was a perfect ending. The fact that it reused the season one OP as the closer cemented this. Season 6 wasn't bad, but it felt like everything was resolved way too quickly and none of the new cast other than Murdoch had any room to grow. Oliver and Emily and that other lady were just kind of...in the background.

Nah, but for real I like Ookiku Furikabutte but Major has Sato Toshiya so that makes it better.
