For those who are fans, a new Pokemon special has been announced. A new character and his MegaCharizard X goes around trying to fight the strongest MegaEvolutions.

Also, the Yu-Gi-Oh Bonds Beyond Time movie is finally getting a release in the US. It will release in July on DVD and Blu-ray, though lacking the 3D and promo card from the US release.

Both, though I am so used to Bonds Beyond Time Abridged that it will be hard to see the original. But hey, subbed Yu-Gi-Oh.

So what are you guys looking forward to in the upcoming Spring season?

 

Glancing over anichart, I do see quite a few I am interested in. But the ones that stand out for me are Black Bullet, Mekaku City Actors, Mushshi 2 , Knights of Sidonia, and  Isshuukan Friends. I am also very curious about Selector Infected WIXOSS, although I have no idea what to expect with it.

 

Will probably wait a bit to watch any however to catch up on all the other series that have been piling up though!

Whatever you watch and recommend to me, because my two favorite shows right now were ones you turned me onto and wouldn't have checked out otherwise (Golden Time and Kill La Kill).


Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

the next season looks really fun. I don't mind Fairy Tail so that returning will be nice, a new season of Mushishi should be good. As for new shows I feel that the following have a chance of being really solid shows. Mahouka Kokukou no Rettousei, No Game No Life, Soredoemo Sekai Wa Utsukushii, Black Bullet, Mekkacity Actors, Gokukoku no Brynhildr,  and since I don't mind sports anime both Haikyuu and Baby Steps could also be fun.

 

This is by far the most anime I have been looking forward to in a single season for a long time.

Off the top of my head, Black Bullet and Haikyuu!! are the animes I'm looking forward to most. Nothing else stands out, but I'm not reading any of their mangas either.

 

 

I've been bad at keeping up lately since I tried to focus on Dexter (currently) and some other tv shows. Kill la Kill, Hunter x Hunter, Nisekoi and Noragami are really the only ones I've been keeping up with since they're on Hulu. Otherwise I'm about 4-7 episodes behind on everything (which is about 30 animes). Got some catching up to do. 


don't touch me

First clip of the FUNi dub for Attack on Titan:

 

 

I would be interested in picking the dub up if it wasn't for the outrageous asking price. FUNi is forcing customers to buy both the DVD and Blu-ray versions together, with no option to buy one separate from the other, and is then charging $37.50 for the standard version that only includes the first half of the series. No thanks.

That is pretty much standard fare for FUNi.

Considering it's probably the most popular anime since FMA: Brotherhood, I can't really blame them for milking it a little. Just be glad they didn't treat it like Aniplex does with their titles. And if you think about it, 13 episodes is about a full season for short anime, and those reach $37.50 by themselves.

I really don't get how someone could call it an outrageous price when it's cheaper, with equal to or more episodes, than any other new(I don't consider a new release of DBZ to be a new anime release :P)  funimation release in june and funimation in general has the cheapest anime releases.

Actually, FUNi's MSRP is usually pretty similar to Sentai's.

I suppose I forget to take funi's MSRP into account since every single one of their non limited edition releases is always around half off (or even more) day 1 on amazon on right stuff... which is not even remotely true for sentai stuff. Even if they were on par with Sentai though it's not like we are talking aniplex or NisA price levels.

Here I thought Gundam Build Fighters had stuffed as many Gundam cameos as it could, and then Gunpla Eve comes around and makes every background character a character from a previous series. Lalah getting ice cream for her and Char was sweet and funny, complete with Ikeda providing a single line guest spot. I want a Turn X model too. Plus, a Zakarello model!

Oh, and Aila eating a giant Haro cookie is quite amusing.

God, I love this show. A shame Bandai isn't around anymore. Hopefully Viz gets it and gives it to Ocean Group to dub.

I guess I haven't bought any anime brand new around their release date in a while, so the prices just seemed a little drastic. The idea of $75 for a 25-episode series just sounded ludicrous to me. But I see that Right Stuf has Volume 1 for $30, which seems much more reasonable IMO.

I know it seems like it's wrapping up and about to hit 2 cours, but have you heard anything about the series ending with episode 26? Cause I haven't. So I'm still holding out a little hope that the big Gundam announcement in a couple of days might touch on its future.

 

And if you're interested in more of the Build Fighters universe, have you read Gundam Build Fighters Amazing? It's a prequel manga that covers Tatsuya Yuki's back story and how he got involved in Gunpla. There are some scanlations our there of the first volume if you want to read it.

It was apparently only contracted as a 26 episode series.

But seeing as how this series has rejuvinated the franchise after AGE almost killed it, I can see a Season 2 happening.

For some reason I had a feeling it was going to end soon. I guess he wants move to something else which is what the special announcement for June is.

Anime fans, make your voice heard! Sportspickle is running a Completely Random Bracket (which I have a thread about elsewhere in the forum) Anime is facing off against former planet Pluto in the Ham Roast division. Sadly, anime is getting pounded. To make matters worse, the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, is also winning. Vote for cilantro!
