The S.A.V.E. edition of Kurau is coming out in a few months anyways, so maybe Raz should hold off on recommending it til then.

Of course right after I order Gunbuster from Amazon and try to cancel it from DeepDiscount, they tell me they can't cancel because it's getting ready for shipping. So, canceling the Amazon order because I don't think $7 is worth the hassle of sending it back to DD.

Occult Academy continues to impress with episode three. Episode three focuses more on Fumiaki, the other lead character, but the show does great things with him. Not only does the show continue to have phenomenal facial expressions, but it's also really great at being funny. Fumiaki's interactions with Mikaze, the girl he falls for at first sight, are genuine and funny, which provides some diversity to an already interesting show. I'm looking forward to episode four when it airs next Monday.

Alright, Soul Eater was extremely amusing but after continuing past episode 24, I'm not really in the mood for things to slow down again or for new characters to enter. I think I'm going to put it down. Episode 25 was terrible.

i'm on ep 38 of soul eater and will probably hit 51 by week's end.

with how many groups are working on various tactics right now i'm skeptical of this show having a satisfying ending in the eps left. still i'm interested to see what they decide to do next and look forward to seeing more. i hope to hear about a Soul Eater NEXT or something that picks up the series again.

That's where I'm at now. I'm stuck at epi 30, it's not that the show is bad, but it feels like this entire arc (which will probably last for another 12 or so episodes) isn't necessary.

Amazon had each season of yu yu hakusho for $14 so I picked it all up. I'll probably skip right to season 3 since that is where Cartoon Network stopped airing it. I kinda miss the days when companies would also dub the op/ed credits.

I'm somewhat new to Anime... first time posting in this thread.

Amazon's deals on the Case Closed box sets were really good, so I picked up seasons 1-5 along with the blu ray of Samurai Champloo. I read that some of the details for things like woodgrain were a little washed out in the bluray, but the audio quality on the bluray was better.. so I went with it anyway.

I thought about what I've seen and what I own for Anime, and realize that I'm not as much of a dabbler in it as I thought.. but even so, if anyone can suggest some good stuff I'd love some suggestions. I'm not opposed to things with Adult content, so long as there is a compelling story to go along with it.

I've really enjoyed Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Ghost in the Shell SAC & 2nd Gig, Fullmetal Alchemist, Azumanga Daioh(sp) and Pani Poni Dash. There are probably a number of others, but I can't think of them right now.

does Samurai Champloo get any better deper into the series? I'm about 6 episodes in and frankly, it's kind of boring.

You just said the magic words! First and foremost, you should buy Kurau Phantom Memory!. Also, you should purchase Full Metal Panic (all three seasons), Ghost Hunt, and Moribito.

On a separate note, I just finished episode 4 of Gunbuster.

well mildest spoiler ever. a few eps later things erupt and move pretty quickly. basically around ep 34 or so. i'm guessing with 51 eps there's not a lot of downtime.

27 introduces a new antagonist if you stopped at 25.

still i wouldn't call this series excellent by any stretch but i'll finish it for sure.

I really can't compete with responses that are that great; I guess I'm not witty enough, unfortunately, though it does help that I leave things open enough to facilitate these responses.

Anyway, how are you liking Gunbuster?

I just finished it. I enjoyed it a lot. Although, the last episode being black and white was a little off-putting at first. I was happy that they portrayed the time dilation consequences of light speed. You don't really see sci-fi shows do that often.

I think tomorrow I'm going to check out the beginning of Toradora to make sure I don't hate it and pre-order volume 2.

I absolutely adore the time dilation consequences of light speed. You don't see it often. The only other science fiction that I can remember, off of the top of my head, having it were the Ender's Game books. There's probably a lot more that I haven't experienced, though. The last episode being black and white was weird at first, but I think it's great in its own right; after watching it, I don't think I'd want it in color. Also, the ending is so damn amazing, and seeing

That was a serious letdown.

Yeah, I got to the new protagonist, and I think it was a pretty stupid move tbh.

I'll move past 34 this weekend and see if it gets better again, the show definitely switches between on/off a lot.


Also, for those who didn't see, Avatar (The Last Airbender Avatar) is getting a spin-off. Shrug, never saw it.

I finished watching Black Lagoon season 1 and 2 today. I have to say that I enjoyed it.

Yeah, it makes no sense that Rock took the path that he did, and Revy can be annoying, but I just couldn't get enough of the awesome action and silly characters coming in and out throughout the series.

I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not there are more seasons and if they'll be coming stateside? Just wanted to know if the box set is worth keeping around and waiting for future seasons to come along and continue the story.
