    I enjoy the premise, but the manga got a bit too yamato damashii for my tastes. How blatant is it in the anime?

    Kill La Kill? It's an OK show, I guess.

    Well I certainly don't it's gotten to that point quite yet.

    Then again, I tend to blank out on cultural shit to begin with

    It really depends on how much you like culture shock gags. I mean the first 5 eps were brutal, with modern forces just ruining over 100k soldiers with little effort. Now this deep, its getting into the human nature aspect of "oh look, new place, lets fuck it till it has nothing left." kind of direction. and also psychotically murderous loli with giant axes. But im not watching it for the whole sociological shtick. its just good for the situational comedy.

    kill la kill? more like pointless fanservice shock plot gimmicks. I liked the show, right up to where the school goes out to conquer other schools. then it gotten too much too quick.

    Ayup, LOTS of fanservice for wankers.
    I've watched the first 5 episodes, so far I like it.

    There was also a couple of anime movie I've watched this summer: Wolf children and A tomb for the Fireflies.

    Wolf children was both sad, but also cute: I really liked the animation and how the two kids/pups grow up .

    A tomb for the Fireflies is just...:negative:

    You mean Grave of the Fireflies? If so then I can't believe this is the first time you've seen it.

    Yeah, sorry, I translated the italian title: "Una tomba per le lucciole". :p
    I had in in my hard drive for years with other movies, but I'm not the kind of person that watches movies or shows that much.

    TG is a great Christmas film. The plot can be a little hokey, but I think that adds to the charm of the film.
    And I can't believe I forgot about Paprika.

    Now that my connection is good, I'm going to download some of them.
    In the meanwhile, I've finished Kill la Kill.

    I agree it's an okay one, worth watching once (and possibly by shutting down brain).
    The final episodes were boring. :V

    It's because I'm a fan of the games. Still waiting on a localization of 2: Rage Burst, but that's besides the point.

    Honestly, it's a beautifully animated show. I'm partly watching it to study animation and cinematic lighting techniques. It's an enjoyable enough show, but nothing groundbreaking. I'd recommend it if you're a fan of the games, or just like watching dangerous demonic monsters destroying the hell out of humanity, ala Ass on Tit-an.

    Really? Thought the first episode and the last two episodes were the only ones worth watching. Everything else was pure filler.

    Ohh, same reason, though I'm barely starting on the first PSP title.

    Heard mention that the characters are either CG or 2D puppet systems shaded in 3D. I'm doubtful of that since you can see from a mile off that the monsters are regularly animated in CG, but really, hats off to ufotable for the five tone shading however they accomplished it. Bonus for no unmoving plaid on Alicia(?)'s hat.

    Only things that're halfway approaching watchability this season is Gangsta (though I hear that the anime's going to shit with the Twilight nonsense and Manglobe running out of budget as always) and Ushio no Tora (if you don't mind 90s shonen cliches mixed with Calvin and Hobbes).

    Hopefully next season Madhouse doesn't cheap out on One Punch Man and the director behind the second season of Garo doesn't mess it up.

    Yeah, I heard people talking about how the God Eater characters look weird, but honestly, I don't see anything wrong with the way they're shaded. Honestly, it looks traditionally animated and drawn, but with extra detail. Very well-done.

    I've been wanting to watch Gangsta. I happened across a few volumes of the manga late last year at a Barnes and Noble, and thought it was weird, but strangely intriguing.

    Just finished watching Charlotte. Interesting concept, but poorly, rushed execution. It was fairly decent, even though the MC was a siscon. But some of the internal stories were funny, some just forced.

    Anime I recommend for wasting a day away with:

    Aldnoah Zero
    Gungrave
    Escaflowne.

    Haven't watched any anime in a long time because majority of it is uninteresting cliche shit anyway, but so far I'm just enjoying watching this.
    I actually grew to like the style as well, during the first episode.

    Started watching some series now


    Gregory Horror Show
    [​IMG]
    A 1st person CGI anime series from 2003 or so, consists of about 2,5 minutes short episodes.
    Weird horror stuff about the residents of an odd hotel, I actually like this a lot even though I'd easily consider some of the scenes and episodes atrocious.

    Ajin
    [​IMG]
    One of those new CGI anime series (there's also OVAs/movies from the same studio), but it looks surprisingly good although some movements and expressions look weird.
    The plot seems a little cliche so far, there's these immortal beings (monsters?) called Ajin and the main character happens to be one.

    Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin
    [​IMG]
    A drama series about residents of a prison-like reform school for young criminals in 1950's Japan.
    The art is neat and I expect to see the characters suffer a lot. Probably a typical friendship story with more violence.

    The manga was superior with deeper character interaction, more threatening parasyte transformations and more blood and gore. Migi was also somewhat more sarcastic and cynical in the manga as well.

    what the fuck are you talking about? The manga and the anime are the same frame for frame save for some brief moments of nudity and them updating everyone's fashion sense to look less 80's.
