  • nah -not at the moment. just watching Stein's Gate and Shirobako when i have a guilt-free moment of spare time to indulge.

    But - a recommendation of something I've seen awhile ago that remains one of the best anime.

    Juuni Kokki - Twelve Kingdoms. @benn

    it's an other-world anime that is really fucking great. Action, cool designs and character development. pretty cool dark fantasy, adventure.
    I had just finished Fushigi yuugi and was VERY tired of the secretly powerful, but whiney and distressed princess.

    but Juuni Kokki is another great anime (like Madoka Magica) that took a reoccuring motif and worked it into something amazing to watch.
    I was distressed with disappointment when I got to the last episode and there weren't anymore coming.

    I think a great viewing party would be:

    Juuni kokki
    Vision of Escaflowne
    Scrapped Princess

    a very very long viewing party of 1 sitting in front of the monitor after work. over a few days with a blanket.
  • Do you watch amime using Crunchyroll @demikat?
  • edited March 2017
    i use crunchyroll from time to time; we have a history.

    but if you only use that service, you'd think anime didn't exist before 2006.

    back in the day, crunchyroll was a fan site with volunteers that subtitled unlicensed anime. so the variety of style, content, and genre was amazing. and there were a few sites in the anime community that did the same.

    story goes - anime broke through the surface tension of western consumer markets and Crunchroll was approached.
    It was to be used as a dowsing rod for what the anime market wanted, but it could only then show what was licensed (however, as a dowsing rod- it had the potential to aid in the direction of what ought to be licensed in anime) it stood during the witch hunt as its competitors' sites were all shut down. (the rumors in my community were that crunchyroll even aided in the search for more obscure fan sites to help bottle neck the market).

    and if you turn on crunchyroll today - you see the residual dowsing rod effect. it pointed in the same direction for so fucking long that the anime selection on crunchyroll is very similar to each other. ("magical child" because that was the new and successful style peaking in the 00s). peppered here and there with an anime classic/gateway anime that was just so successful - it'd be weird if they didn't carry it. @shin0z

  • ahhhhhhhh!!! my anime site is down.

    I really hope it comes back but it's been down for 26hrs already. Noo0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0oller coasters.

    i saw a few quasi-popular youtube people actually cite my anime source site - so I anticipanted its shutdown because of the spread of information. especiaally when I read some of the comments on western licensed material like "Steven Universe" - people bitching that we should be watching the show on tv for the sake of its ratings and continuation and not online. (I fucking blame you Misty C. OH and me now that I think about it cause I posted one of your videos and in your video description you posted the link to the anime site. ARHH i'm a fucking AR-tard.)

    no one remembers how to keep a secret these days - fucking tubers being professional aand citing source pages so they'll be helpful to newcomers

    word of mouth only when it comes to anime sites. put that shit on a dissolving piece of paper. make a special handshake already!!

    i have to go hunting again =/
  • ehhh.

    the domain name is up for sale on namcheap. Goodbye anime site (-ω-)ゝ i lobu-lobu desu!'ed you.
  • have any of you guys seen one-punch man? it's fucking hilarious and great and on netflix - highly recommend it.
  • yea - havent we geeked out about One Punch before? i definitely have but i suppose elsewhere. looking foward to season 2, so at best 2018 release =/

    but there's also a mobile game for "One Punch" which ought to be out some time this year. i'd play it, but i'm not expecting much.

  • i haven't kept up religiously with the thread, so you probably have... but i just had to post about it 'cause i've been loving it so much
  • A Cruel Angel's Theme is really that fucking catchy!

  • FUCK YEA. Lupin the 3rd hype!

    it was a great fucking weekend and now all i want to do is revel in it.

    but it feel like i went to sleep sunday night and woke up on Tuesday for work.
  • Oshiete! Galko-chan! the fun talk about town currently. a unique comedy connection to the audience: asking a salacious question at the beginning of the episode in which the answer plays out through the style of a Mini episode with characters that outwardly project a common archetype while the innerself and true nature of the character is revealed through their actions and interpersonal relationships with others!

    Mad cute, very funny. Fan service!!

  • Really into this!!

    @synthwavelover - you watch anime?
  • It's not anime, but I've been bugging out for years WISHING Space Stallions was a real show. It's such an amazing fucking idea - i feel like I could write some dope ass stories for it!

    and "Distress Signal" by Lazerhawk could inspire instant fucking claassic feelings for generations to come. Epic Transformer 1986 Animated Classic!!! Scale of mental destruction!
    i'd love to watch.
