Trinity Seven Eps 1-2: for those of you that screamed for a harem MC to be more alpha, your prayers have been answered. Not so sure if this is my thing though.

Binge-watched the first 8 eps of GunxSword with a friend after finding the first two DVDs of it in a clearance bin. It really is like Trigun but with less western influence and more mechs involved.

@daveyo520: I think anyone outside of New England is supposed to hate the Pats on principle.

Also, Washington's season was dead ever since the Jacksonville game ended: There's a QB controversy in that the Skins don't have one because RG3 probably peaked in his rookie year, Cousins keeps choking each game and Colt McCoy got knocked upside the head too many times in Cleveland I'm afraid what might happen if they do turn to him in desperation. Don't think it matters because you could have Steve Young from 1993 at QB, but 4/5 of our O-Line is so terrible he'd be running for his life. And don't get me started on how our secondary is being held together with scotch tape because even at the start of the season it was mediocre at best.

@bisonhero: Well, there is a list I linked in the OP if you want somewhere to start, but if you're looking for something relatively short and episodic, see if "Level E" is available in your area. It's darkly-humorous sci-fi from the guy who did Yu Yu Hakusho.

@bisonhero: Hikaru no Go? Wow, that's a blast from the past. What kinds of shows are you interested in?

@meatball: You could always buy the game yourself, stream it over Twitch and/or upload to YouTube while you say things over a mic. That way you'd not only have a Quick Look and instant gratification but you'd take a step towards becoming internet-famous!

@negativecero: as I wrote earlier...

What's cool that's airing this season? For Fall 2014, because I was too busy to make one of those capsule preview blogs I do sometimes: check out Chaika the Coffin Princess, Inou Battle ("When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace"), Parasyte and Psycho-Pass.

@jimipeppr: I'm just smiling at all these classic alt-rock references being shoved into each character, and how they all enunciate what they plan to do while they do it. It's so wonderfully "old-school" in both senses of the term.

Link to Old Thread

Welcome animeduders and other curious Giant Bomb forumites! Here's the thread where we talk about all the wonderful and/or horrible things about Japanese anime, manga, and the industry that makes them. Also we've decided to allow non-Japanese animated cartoons and comics for those who really want to talk about them outside of sister site Comic Vine.

I know what you're saying: "Anime is for jerks." But occasionally it can be really cool and fucking awesome, so if you want to chat about anime this is the thread to do so, especially since GB has lower tolerance for creepers and shitposters than other anime forums.

MyAnimeList Club (mostly dead, but for reference): http://myanimelist.net/clubs.php?cid=31927

GBAD Steam group: (also mostly dead except for the occasional post, talk to @tobbrobb about it): http://steamcommunity.com/groups/gbad

What Animes Would Dan Ryckert Like? Thanks to @bigjeffrey for starting that thread.

I'm new to anime, what should I watch? I'm really tired of answering this question, so here's a link to a list I made awhile back that will give you some starting points. Feel free to read it, or don't. If you have a more specific request, then post it in the thread and we'll have some more specific recommendations for you.

What's cool that's airing this season? For Fall 2014, because I was too busy to make one of those capsule preview blogs I do sometimes: check out Chaika the Coffin Princess, Inou Battle ("When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace"), Parasyte and Psycho-Pass. There are several others but I feel that's a good starting point.

Where do I watch them? All of the aforementioned shows can be found legally on sites like Crunchyroll, Funimation (sometimes carried through YouTube or Hulu), or Netflix depending on who snapped up the license in your territory. Otherwise, Google it or wait for the official DVD/Bluray release to drop in your neighborhood.

So...about those anime-fightan games? With only a few exceptions, you're better off not watching the anime adaptations. Trust me.

Having said that, me and several others here are up for some BBCP or P4U2, UNIEL or (soon) GGXrd action, as long as you have a PS3 and a decent internet connection.

What rules do you have? NO DISCUSSION OF OR ANY LINKS TO ILLEGAL STREAMING/DOWNLOADING SITES. They are not allowed and the mods may put you down Old Yeller-style if you post them. Also, please put all spoilers in spoiler tags when necessary. It shouldn't have to be said, but respect the standard GB Forum rules and don't be a jerk.

With that said, the floor is now open for discussion. May Haruhi, Madoka and the other Kami watch over us all.

Should we start a new thread? I'm thinking it might be time to start a new thread soon.
