The first season is a little slow but introduces the entire world pretty well. The second season ramps up the story and has one of the best arcs I've seen in awhile (maybe not that good, but still good). Watching Season 3 now, but it's pretty disappointing so far. The story dropped considerably, and the humor is getting a little stale. Still want to watch it to the end, though.


Sorry, but you're being misleading and incorrect. Soul Eater is a single season comprised of 51 episodes; it is not four seasons of 12 to 13 episodes.

So, I now have a computer hooked up to my TV. Time for some prime fansub watching. On deck: Akazukin Chacha and maybe I'll rewatch Denno Coil.

"Misleading and incorrect"? Really? It's not like he's trying to sell prime farmland in Siberia. Don't be so serious, you'll get an ulcer. ;)

Thank you, you know what I mean, every 12-13 episodes is in a DVD box set, so I'm splitting it up like that. Don't get your

If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

I'm sorry. I don't mean to appear as if I pick on Raz because I dislike him, I like him well enough. That's why i try to throw in smiley faces and such to give off a bit of a joking disposition. But, sometimes people say things, and I have a compulsion to reply.

I finished watching Utwarerumono today, and it really impressed me. I only saw the 1st 2 episodes on Anime Network on Demand and it seemed like it would be a decent show, but turned out to be a very good show.

I loved the pacing, the characters, and the setting. The animation was also solid. Not much to complain about with this one.

Yeah, it's a good time. It's one of those shows that I watched through when it first aired in Japan with fansubs, and eventually bought it when it came to the US. Still haven't actually watched the DVDs though.

Random Change of Subject time, anyone look at the pics of Kappei Yamaguchi? The guy is 45 and looks like he's 16.
Photo coming when I feel like it.
And, yes people of the asian persuasion tend to age more slowly until they reach their 60s, but this is ridiculous. (and yes, that does kinda sound racist, but it seems to be a truth across all of the nationalities, be it Chinese, Japanese, korean, Laosian, or what have you.)

They age, just not until they're well over 50. Then they age all at once.

When I was in high school, I told this kid that his sister was a smokeshow. Turns out it was his mother and she was like 48.

Right Stuf says it's reserved for my order, so maybe it will be shipping out soon, however, it's not like we can watch it anyway. Hopefully it doesn't take NIS America too long to remaster the first Toradora collection, and hopefully the second collection doesn't need remastering as well.

I watched the first episode of Asobi ni Iku yo. I was expecting it to be a pile of shit based on its trailer, however, I was pleasantly surprised because I quite enjoyed it. Sure, it has some genre cliches that are a bit stale, but the story and characters seem so ridiculous that they're quite interesting thus far. Also, it doesn't hurt to have references to Ender's Game and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Also, episode 16 of Heroman was fucking fantastic. God, I love that show.

Well, you can't ask for a replacement until after you recieve it, so there's that. I still plan on watching it anyway, unless it's really bad I probably won't even notice.

What is the difference between Macross and Robotech? They're both older series, but I was interested in watching one of them. I heard Macross was better and was going for that one first. I remember a little bit of one was shown on Sci Fi years ago.

The best way to explain the difference between Macross and Robotech is to understand what exactly Robotech is. The wikipedia article does a pretty decent job.

The biggest common element between Macross and Robotech is that both are boring as hell.

That's an oddly specific number. I was originally going to say that I was too lazy to actually look through the sale to find things for you, but I decided to check out the sale thread anyway. This lead to me purchasing Gunbuster (which I had on order from the last DD sale, but it still isn't in stock and more expensive anyway) and Baccano! since I've heard good things.

That said, I have no recommendations for you unless you want one of the series I just mentioned.

I watched four episodes of Sister Princess... anyone here can I borrow 80 minutes from your life? I always give a series at least four episodes before dropping it, and I usually finish a series that I started even if it isn't the greatest, but I can't finish this one. I really need to stop buying complete series without knowing anything about them.
