Watched a few episodes of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. It's funny, but it's a little pervy, which is why I stopped at like episode 7. If you want to watch it, I definitely recommend the Japanese version with English subtitles, must better voice acting.




You stopped at episode 7... 1 episode before the MASSIVE twist and the series turns on its head and becomes a ton more awesome.

Why does anyone particularly care if it is "pervy"? Oh sweet lord I saw her panties, I must cleanse my eyes in a bath of fire and daggers.

And I would like to call you a filthy liar, sir, and I will do so because of your belief that american VAs can be better than the original seiyu. And I will again, because there is never any time that this statement is true.

Well, I hate to say it Jaziek, but I finally did catch up with Geass today. It's pretty good so far [not amazing, but okay] and I have to admit that I am getting into the plot and some of the relationships [Karen and Lelouch, for example, is sadly of interest]. It's finally naturalistic enough for me, so I think I'll keep watching.



It's interesting that everyone compares it to Death Note, and I felt much the same I suppose, in my own mind kind of thinking of it as a forced, okay fusion between that anime and Gundam. A key difference I've found though is that the intellectual combat is a very different kind of intelligience from DN. Code Geass seems to be entirely based upon chess-like mind games. Lelouch wins his battles with a screen in front of him telling him all his teammate and enemy positions, and acts as if playing a chess game. His opponents, namely Cornelia and Scheizel (sp?) are much the same in the way they think when in battles of wits with Lelouche. Apart from the chess aspect they don't seem all that smart, and sometimes even stupid in the way they act.



In DN, not once, ever do you see chess played, nor even a hint of chess-like thought process. It's all just advanced, essentially unemotional detective minds combatting each other, so intellectually speaking, it's better. Code Geass, thus, has the Gundam aspect, as well as the emotional relationships, as, from what I can tell, almost simply a compensation for the lesser intelligience of the show. Oh, and the fanservice. Christ almighty there's a bit much of that [is it just me or have they made that Karen's signature camera angle or something?].



SN: Who else really hates Nina's character? I'm having trouble thinking of a character in anything I've ever read or watched who is more annoying and pathetic than her :S.

you have no idea how much nina hate there is until you're full up to date with season 2. Yes, that is Kallen's signature angle and to be honest, it doesnt get any smarter, so to speak, as it goes on.

I'm a giant death note fan :geek: . The night the show was released on Adult Swim, I promised myself right before the show came on that I was going to watch more anime over the next few months. Luckily, the next show on was a good one :ohnoes: . I ended up watching half of the episodes using subtitles that night ( :D )



Others shows that I like:

Cowboy Bebop

Azumanga Diaoh

FMA



Oddly enough, I'm not that big of a rurouni kenshin fan :oops: . Made my account when I was a lot younger.

Oh, and rebdragon, L is actually playing chess by himself one of the first times that Light is introduced to the investigation team. Light interrupted L's game and checkmated him almost instantly. Showed a little pre-conflict is you ask me 8-) .

(They don't play chess on a mental level like in Code Geass, like you said though ;) )

You're going to have to tell me the episode/manga chapter on that one, 'cause I definitely don't recall it. When he was introduced to the investigation team he just went straight up to the TV and was asked about the second Kira, iirc :| .

I'm not a fan of anime, but I used to watch Dragonball Z (back when Cartoon Network was good and Toonami was still alive) and I loved the show. I tried watching shows like One Piece and I just don't understand it. It seems rather random and the faces of the people look really obscure, kind of like some characters in Naruto except Naruto is a lot better IMHO.



Offtopic: I find it slightly amusing that this thread is right next to the anti-anime thread ;)

SET FAIL FOR ONE PIECE.

And try to watch something other than shounen powerlevel junk. Spending 5 episodes charging your power in AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and then using 30 seconds of the next episode to actually fight is barely entertaining.

Watch some slice of life animu if you find it confusing, theyre often portrayed alot closer to home (Home, of course, being Japan). Though choosing something like Lucky Star or Minami-ke may be going overboard, you wont understand a lot of it unless youre familiar with Japanese culture. Try something like Moyashimon, its about a boy who can see microbes, but its a lot better than it sounds. Also has a good OP/ED.

Try something like Moyashimon, its about an OMGWTF?! trap.






fixed.



also, ok, misunderstood you there reb. Yep, Nina is THE most hate-able character I've ever come across. I even like Rolo better than her, and thats bloody Rolo.



also also - watched the first death note live action. It was fairly decent, nothing compared to the anime / manga, right up until that last shot, which was one of the OH MY GOD AWESOME! moments that made the anime great.

I'm watching the series again as we speak, I'll get back to you in a day or so. But the scene wasn't major, the match was all going on while they were in conversation, just a little sub-conflict to add more emphasis to the conversation =P~ .



EDIT: Aargh, you were right. I got that awful Death Note movie mixed up with the series :x . In the (horrible) movie, when they play chess, it's equivalent to the tennis match with Light vs. L in the series.



Sorry again :oops: :cry: .

Jaziek, I thought the Fm series already finished, unless they're going to do more :| ? Could you put in hide tags for me how it ended and how they are going to begin the second one? I've seen all the episodes but never the manga so I'm a bit confused.

FMA spoiler, may or may not be correct


How are they going to carry it on? Find another way, probably.



But I just finished watching Kaiji and its awesome. Some logical guessing, but most of it can actually be followed if using the same train of thought. Ending was pretty unsatisfactory, but allows for a sequel. Kaiji is moe~.

I suppose ill finish watching S1 of Shakugan no Shana and then probably watch Akagi. Or if someone bothers to sub the new series of Negima, ill get that. And then august 29th means S2 of Lucky Star, so ill probably have to get that aswell. FFFFFFFF

ok this completely flew under my radar. Who the hell are they making it about? you cant really have yutaka walking around as a "senior" girl, you'd have to have a bloody foetus as a first year by comparison.

I have no idea, but id assume so. I expect itll reverse the roles, so the younger year is now the focus and having the original crew make guest appearances. They had better keep that GAR [bleep] Shiraishi, though.
