It's a shame that the great production values are wasted on such a juvenile premise in Punchline.

Omega Quintet will be released here on 4/28: http://www.siliconer...-north-america/

Looks about the same as a Neptunia game,but with the idol theme instead.

Is this any good? I recall it being panned at ANN while it was airing, but there's quite a few positive reviews on that page.

 I wouldn't put a lot stock in Amazon customer reviews at all. The show itself just comes off as a more schlock fanservice version of The Devil is a Part-Timer.

I started watching The Testament of Sister New Devil and I like it so far, hope it gets released on Bluray here.

Best thing about that show was this

I wish Saki had a physical release. I mean, even Girls und Panzer did.

Biggest difference is Girls und Panzer was extremely popular,and easier to market. I can't see any company picking up a show about girls playing mahjong for release here.

Did they license Parasyte?

 

I'm guessing Tokyo Ghoul S1 will probably have screenings in the Spring then be released in the summer. S2 will probably be Spring 2016 (just by Funimation's current way of doing things). Code Geass and the crapton of Haruhi that Funi got from Bandai may have a certain date on where they have to wait before they do a physical release. I wouldn't be surprised to see streams of everything by the summer. 

They don't have Parasyte yet. Am hoping they get around too Outlaw Star on blu-ray.

I was hoping Funi picked up some non-harems shows. Can they just pick up Garo,and Parastye already.

Yay for NISA and Aniplex Pricing. >.>


I don't see the issue with NISA pricing. It's only slightly above the norm,and you get much nicer sets compared to anything AOA has put out.

So I looked for a solid recommendations thread but didn't find anything maintained so I apologize if there is anything. I recently bought the Cowboy Bebop bluray set and it got me thinking I may enjoy getting back into some anime. Admittedly, I largely found myself dissapointed with everything I watched in the early 2000's (Trigun,  Witch Hunter Robin, Hellsing, etc.) but  other than Cowboy Bebop there were a few shows I really loved (GITS: SAC, Raxephon, Neon Genesis (remakes), and obviously Samurai Champloo. My prioririties would be:

 

1. A good story and a good dub. I'm not dealing with subtitles.

2. Sci-Fi is preferred but fantasy and horror would be ok if no. 1 is still true.

2. HD if possible. If there's an older show in 4:3 sure but other than Bebop I doubt there's much from that era that I wouldn't know about.

3. A completed show if possible. 

 

Right now Attack on Titan looks like a great front runner but it also looks pricey and I'm not even sure if it's finished. Steins Gate looks good but I've seen some trailers/reviews that make it look a bit overrated. 

 

Please ignore or redirect to me a trusted place for ranking that clearly review the elements that are important to me (dub, picture quality) but if anyone has their top 5 that would be greatly appreciated.

-Kino's Journey

-Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo

-Serial Experiments Lain

-Texhnolyze

 

Check those out if you haven't.

Golgo 13 has been on my "to watch" list for years and I still have no idea what it's about, lol. I just thought he always looked cool from the wonky NES game. 

Only thing I know about Golgo 13 other the game is this scene from one of the movies
