And then there's going to be a 1-hour Toriko/One Piece/DBZ anime special in Japan to promote the upcoming Project Versus J game. The casts of each anime involved have also been released.

This anime that I mentioned earlier now has 2 different previews that aired with Toriko and One Piece:

So, there's a new car commercial out there (it might be old, I haven't watched a lot of TV recently) that uses Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon" as its theme.

How sad is it that I immediately thought of Eva before Ol' Blue Eyes?

The series, Attack on Titan, actually starts airing this Saturday in Japan. It's the only new spring anime I've been interested in, so I've been keeping my eye on it.

Here's another promo for it:

I HIGHLY recommend reading the manga that this is based on, Shingeki no Kyojin. Just be warned that it's extremely graphic. Makes me wonder how they'll handle all the gore in the anime.

I just started Naruto and I'm very happy with it. So happy with it, i bought the first Naruto game for the 360 and it's a lot of fun and follows the series pretty well. Every now and again I go back and watch some Outlaw Star. I loved that series.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Sadly, only way that you're going to be able to watch is through illegal means. Because rumors are that because of MBS, no one will be able to pick up Attack on Titan for a simulcast.

Yeah so I've heard and that's pretty unfortunate. I'm probably going to wait a couple weeks and hope someone picks it up before I resort to that. Kodansha USA is launching the manga here this summer so I'll support them through that and other means for now.

So, this Attack on Titan talk has piqued my interest. Is it worth $6.50 per volume?

Yeah, it's worth it if you can get them for that price. I've only read the first 3 volumes(waiting on Amazon to ship the 4th). First volume starts off kinda slow, but really picks up near the end and the other 2 just run with the action. Can't remember which one, but the 2nd or 3rd does include a back story about the two main characters(Eren & Mikasa).

Sometimes I hate how fluid Amazon's prices are. I figured I'd just order the Attack on Titan books this morning, and a couple of them were raised in price overnight. They're still plenty cheap, and I've heard a lot of people raving about the series, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Although I hope I can get past the weird proportions of the titans once I get some story to go along with the images I've seen. :)

Yeah, they announced it about a month ago, when Right Stuf put out Funi's June schedule. With a S.A.V.E. edition of My Bride is a Mermaid, Sekirei Season 1 & 2 combo pack and that coming out in the next few months, my wallet is going to hate me.

I tried going to the 2 part way of buying Birdy a couple months ago, but got burned on Part 1 twice. Because Amazon has a listing for the version for that has the defective 2nd disc(that has DBZ on it instead of Birdy). But even with the correct one, there's still people that list the defective one under it.

After that, I decided to just buy the complete series and saw that the S.A.V.E. edition is coming out, so now I'm holding off on until June.

FYI, this is the listing for the defective one:

Yeah, they announced that at Sakura-con.

They also mentioned that Haganai & Future Diary will get releases later this year(more than likely Fall 13). Also contract issues is what has been preventing Funimation from licensing the 2007-2012 Ah! My Goddess OVAs.

So is Crunchyroll:

Yeah, I know, it's confusing that two different companies are simulcasting the same show at the same time. Funi's seems to be for paid EVS members only, while CR's will be for free a week after it airs.

So watched the first two episodes of Aku no Hana; one last night and the other just now. Also read the first 18 chapters of the manga just now.

I think its pretty good, I see alot of people hating on the anime online because of the animation style but I quite like it - makes a nice change. I might pick the manga up eventually as I don't normally like reading manga online but I just got a bit carried away with this one.

Good news about Attack on Titan's streaming.

Amazon sent me 1,3,and 4 of the manga so I'm stalled out after the first volume. I like what I've seen so far though, and it actually didn't take me long to get past the art style. I appreciate you guys mentioning it because I just waved it aside when I saw it before.

Word of advice to people reading the manga though, don't read the interview in the back of the book. They clearly didn't pay attention when they added it, because it spoils some [I]major[\I] plot points with offhanded remarks.

What about Gankutsuou or Welcome to the NHK (even though it's overrated as hell)


Don't know why it's overrated, loved WTTNHK. One of my favorites

It's finally getting released here!:whee:


Didn't see this, Fuck YES FINALLY

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

It's a good show but the fans talk about it as if it's the greatest thing ever. The show focused too much on the comedy part of it,and made Misaki less interesting of a character than she was in the manga,and the drawings and animation quality were inconsistent.

Good show still but the manga and novel are way better.

It was just a terrible adaptation of the manga.First off the story didn't flow as smoothly as the manga.The characters aren't really developed at all. It was also way more stupid with the jokes,and it toned down everything. All that and it just wasn't as funny.
