@bigjeffrey: Alot of this guys issues could of been solved by taking the gym clothes to lost and found or not stealing her gym shorts.

Not sure what's more awkwardly cringe worthy, this or Watamote.

Woah, Woah, WOAH.

Aku no Hana is easily THE WORST thing I have ever seen that would be classified as a work of fiction. I didn't think that any character could surpass Holden Caulfield (Catcher in the Rye) or Shinji Ikari (Evangelion) as the whiniest piece of shit in fiction, but along comes Kasuga and his particular strain of patheticism (new word) literally forces me to drop the show and wonder why I kept watching it.

Watamote on the other hand is a fantastic show with a protagonist that's so awkward that it's cute. It can be cringe worthy at times, but that's only because she tries so hard to be popular and just can't get it together. I don't think I've ever felt the urge to magically insert myself into an anime just to give her a hug and say it's going to be okay.

@bigjeffrey:

The desk barrier, broken glass in the hallway, girl carrying shovel, everyone worried that she almost went home, and gravesite on the roof were obvious clues leading up to the end.

I should of payed more attention cause I did not notice the gravesite and broken glass. /

Chasing after the dog before part B.
End of the roof scene.

The grave on the roof makes no sense, since that's not enough dirt to cover a body when you consider it's probably no more than 6 inches.

I noticed...

the barricade, the broken glass, and several zombies/walkers/people hunched over when looking outside, but they were very blurred to hide them. I still had no idea the chick was just crazy. I thought there were zombies, but everyone at school was just living a normal life with shit going crazy in the outside world.

Some guy made a 2 part video series breaking down the JoJo openings, really showcasing how fucking amazing they are visually. If you're a JoJo fan, definitely check them out. If you're a fan of really well-done visuals, and don't care about JoJo (or just spoilers), check them out too.

I believe I heard about these videos while listening to the Super Best Friendcast. I'll check them out.

What does everyone feel are the top shows for this season? I'm already watching Gate and Charlotte.

I was excited about the game when it was initially revealed and then I kinda went into a low hype mode, but I still knew I wanted to get it when it came out.

I'm watching the 18 minute thing and now I feel like I'm going to have to take a few days off work to play it. Agree?

@golguin: You did literally everything I wanted to do if I could go, except spend too much money on figures. Hope you had fun!

Oh, but I did spent too much money on Figures :D.

Great looks like GB ate my post about AX 2015.

I talked about the Love Live Concert (very loud, lots of glow stick moves by audience, people standing up and dancing), the 20th Anniversary Eva concert (Yoko Takahashi performed), and the Little Witch Academia premier (Trigger on point and amazed by audience reactions to movie as Japanese audiences don't react).

Watched Gate. First episode seems super legit with plenty of death. Looking forward to new waifus.

Attack on Titan is one the best shows to come out recently and it's really easy to get into since it doesn't have the tropes that most anime shows have.

You're joking right? Sure it starts off off that way with a unique premise, then that 6th episode hits and you're like "Oh, this is just another anime-ass anime isn't it?" Even before that they introduce just about every anime character archetype you can think of. Then again I'm saying this as one of the very few people who thinks that show is no good.

I'm not joking. Where are the pantsu shots? The beach episode? The harem?

Free from harem/romance/ecchi tropes doesn't mean it isn't filled with action/shounen tropes

So I have a lot on my plan to watch list. What would you guys prioritize from that list?

Ghost in the Shell, Katanagatari, and Serial Experiments Lain are all things I think everyone should watch. Also Macross because it's great. If you want to catch up with some recent stuff though Hibike, Ore Monogatari, and Nozaki-kun are all great. Good list though!

If you want to get trope specific then every work of fiction is filled with tropes inherent to the genre. Action movies are going to be action movies. Romantic comedies are going to be romantic comedies. Horror movies are going to act like horror movies. I stand by my statement that Attack on Titan doesn't have the tropes that most anime shows have. It isn't Kill la Kill or Naruto.

The same goes to @babychoochoo
