Finished Flowers of Evil. Enjoyed it looking forward to second season.

I enjoyed it a lot, however, most of the other people who I've heard opinions from disagree.

It definitely has people that love or hate it, I quite enjoyed it. I read the manga a few months ago in like two sittings online then just been reading each one as it comes out now. They've got alot to pack into the second season.

 

I think I will start Attack on Titan and Btooom! now..

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.

Most of the complaints I've seen were due to the rotoscoping animation(which didn't bug me that much) or the fact that the episodes were paced so slowly.

Yeah, I've definitely heard gripes about the animation style, but I thought it was pretty neat.

Shingeki no Kyojin is reaaally good. One of my favourite animes. I've heard a lot of good things about Btooom! too.

Anyone else excited for the Lupin III vs. Detective Conan Movie? I've watched this teaser trailer about 20 times now:

From what I hear, the last crossover movie sucked because the focus was 80% on Conan's group. Hopefully this will provide better focus.

I've heard the same, but the last crossover was a TV special, not an actual theatrical release. I'm staying optimistic though. I hope the movie at least does well enough to result in some more Lupin III in the future.

Funimation announced at SDCC that they will be releasing .hack//SIGN, .hack//Roots, .hack//Legend Of The Twilight, and .hack//G.U. Trilogy on home video.

 

In other news, Initial D is ending this month. And Soul Eater is down to its very last chapter.

I've also very happy to share that Hajime No Ippo has been green-lit for another season. It's scheduled to start airing this fall in Japan.

I'm glad the Japanese are finally learning that manga can end.

Haven't seen .hack//SIGN since it left Toonami (sorry, SVES) and only saw a few episodes of ROOTS. I just hope they won't be bulky combo packs, though they probably will.

Was expecting a Gundam announcement, but FUNi may be targeting ComiCon for that.

Watching One Piece on Toonami, I'm ready for this stupid-ass davey-back arc to end.  It's a really moronic arc.

Well they basically doubled the length of the arc, then put even more filler in afterwards. What happens after that is actually pretty important (in the manga it happens directly after the Davy back fight).

I've heard people say that One Piece does a much better job with filler episodes, but Oda already paces his stuff so that there's a sort of lull between major arcs, and when they extend it it makes it even more painful. I really hope the ratings can hold up until Water 7, though I think that's a long ways away.

Did you read the article? It's not the movie that's causing the shitstorm, it's comments Miyazaki made about some controversial topics in an interview. That's what people are getting all pissy about. 

 

Promo for Sword Art Online that starts airing on Toonami this weekend:

I have liked all of the other One piece filler until the Davey back fight.  (watched it on dvd until 204, whatever the last season 3 collection was)  This filler is just bad, though.  Interesting to see that Chiquicheetah isn't canon.

Finally got around to watching my Tenchi Muyo OAV Blu-rays (of course after getting the singles then the Ultimate Collection cheap) and I forgot how funny the series is. I really wish Petrea Burchard stayed in voice acting. Her Ryoko voice is spot on.

Also, damn Talent for Love for being so catchy. It's like a Shania Twain song: Extremely girly but can't help but sing along and won't get out of my head.

Got around to watching The World God Only Knows finally. Had low expectations going in, but I am very surprised how good it actually is.

 

That said, the one show I'm waiting on is Little Busters Refrain. Can't help I'm a sucker for Key's productions haha

A shame Cross Manage has ended. I enjoyed the manga.

And a 7 week break before the final battle in Bleach? Gah!

Plus isn't Oda still sick, so no One Piece for at least a couple of weeks?

Meh, I am not the One Piece crazy fanboy a lot of people are and this tournament is so freaking boring.

EDIT: Yea, the next month is going to be relatively sparse for Shonen Jump. Naruto, Toriko, Niseikoi, Jaco, One Punch Man, Dragon Ball Z, plus one more chapter of Blue Exorcist. And Jugo will likely only last 1 volume like all of Toriyama's post-DB manga.

From Toriyama's intro the other week, it certainly seemed like this was intended to be a short series, I think he even gave a page count.

Is this DB in color thing just for the translated Shonen Jump? Are they actually going to release colorized volumes too. I love DB but I've read it to death, so it's the last thing I read.

7 weeks? I swore I read somewhere that the break was going to be 5 weeks.

 

Plus isn't Oda still sick, so no One Piece for at least a couple of weeks?

Nobody really knows what's wrong with Oda at this point, but this is like the 3rd or 4th time this year in which he's had to take a week off, which is pretty uncommon for him. I believe One Piece should be back next week though.

 

And Jaco will likely only last 1 volume like all of Toriyama's post-DB manga.

I believe Jaco is supposed to last around 10 chapters. At least that's what I've read on various boards. There are even rumblings that it's somehow connected to the Dragon Ball universe.

 

From Toriyama's intro the other week, it certainly seemed like this was intended to be a short series, I think he even gave a page count.

Yeah Toriyama mentioned in a comment in the Viz version of WSJ about it being 217 pages long.

 

And yes, Viz has announced that they will be printing volumes of the Dragon Ball Full Color Edition manga starting next year. The first volume will be $20 and will be larger than a regular manga. It's supposed to be about the same size as an American graphic novel.

I don't know about volumes, but the colored DB manga is in Japan also.

Yea, Toriyama hasn't done a long runner since DB ended.

So, who here is heading to Otakon? Hoping to get in to see Eva 3.33 and the TMR concert. If Otakon schedules them anywhere near each other I will scream. Hoping that Unicorn Episode 6 will also be screened.
