One Punch Man is definitely worth the time! It's a pretty funny take on shonen and its tropes. Saitama and Genos are awesome

I really don't think I'll come back to AN unless certain people leave. The SD&D board was the worst thing ever and I'm sorry I ever agreed to it. It sucks, because I really did make some good friends on there...but for my own sanity and at the risk of sounding like Kenny and annoying everyone else even more, I'd rather just leave altogether.

Oh well. It was time for me to retire from there anyway

Certain people ruined it for good for me.

Oh, I saw your review of Spirited Away. That is also very interesting that you saw it that way. It was the first anime I watched, and so I only noticed what was extremely different from Disney, whereas it seems you noticed what was similar. I was completely floored by that movie, I had never seen anything like it. But it certainly does have a little bit of a childish feel: it is a children's movie, Miyazaki himself said it was for 10-year-olds. But I think that kids movies and books can sometimes be a little more mature than adult movies sometimes.

Hi, I know you wrote your review of Grave of the Fireflies a long time ago, but I just now read it and I wanted to comment. I consider myself a huge fan of Studio Ghibli because I love all of their movies except two (The Cat Returns and Porco Rosso). However, you make a lot of valid points. Studio Ghibli does have some messages that are shoved down your throat, and I usually just overlook them because I enjoy the rest of the movie so much. One of those themes is environmentalism in Princess Mononoke. I looked passed it and enjoyed the parts of the movie I liked, but really, it is very heavy-handed. I thought Pom Poko handled that issue better. Although Grave of the Fireflies is an Isao Takahata film and you disliked that one, you may try Pom Poko and My Neighbors the Yamadas (i.e., you may like the Ghibli films that most Ghibli fans don't enjoy as much). Anyway, it was interesting to hear from someone who wasn't crazy about Studio Ghibli. It would be interesting to hear your thoughts of Nausicaa and some of the others. I also highly recommend one of Ghibli's realistic movies, From Up On Poppy Hill.

Nevermind. Seems AN's back online right now.

Has going to the Animenation site redirecting you to some completely different website? It suddenly started doing that with me about an hour ago. I thought I'd solved the problem but now I can't access it at all.

It's really UC Purists that hate it I noticed.

It's pretty damn good so far! Wile I'm still not sold on Kamille as a character, I really enjoy the secondary cast like Emma, Quattro etc.

The animation also really impresses me, definitely ahead of its time for 1987. The attention to detail is great and I'm enjoying some of the battles.

So yeah good so far, I'll have to watch more of the series ofc and I'll see how much of my opinion will change by then.

Nice review on 00 Gundam. It's nice to see someone else who thinks its the best Gundam series.

LOL you got your wish in number 8 in your anime wish list, aka. Ore Imo.

Random commenting just because I am flipping through my message board on my profile like one and half year ago lulz.

I'm actually really enjoying Gundam Seed so far. But, one thing I've noticed about a lot of mecha anime, the first few episodes are rather confusing and chaotic. It takes a little while before you can get immersed in it. But, I'm really enjoying it so far! Heck, I won a contest a little while ago, and the prize was a Strike Gundam Model which I just put together the other day as well, I wanted to have watched part of the show before I started building it!

Code Geass is something I definitely want to watch in the near future, whenever I can get a chance! I'd also like to start Buddy Complex, but I'm going to let it build up some more episodes before I dive into it. But, it looks like it can be enjoyable!
cyclone1993 Dec 31, 2013 1:05 AM
Yeah it definitely sounds like something I would enjoy from what I know about it!

That's an interesting way to think about it! It didn't occur to me to look at it that way. Though I tend to prefer mecha series that were made from the early 2000's on, as opposed to 80's and 90's anime.

I've said before that I would never really consider myself a mecha fan. I watched a lot of anime, and before I knew it I was watching quite a bit of mecha. But I wasn't sure if it was because what I was watching was an exception or the rule.

My first mecha anime was Eureka Seven, and I completely fell in love with it! Heck, I've almost watched it 4 times xD Then after learning about the studio who made Eureka Seven, Studio BONES, I wanted to watch more of their shows. Turns out they made quite a bit of mecha, and the ones I've watched from them have been really enjoyable. Then I decided recently to watch a sort of more traditional mecha anime, and settled on Valvrave, and I loved it!

My love for mecha isn't necessarily in the mechs themselves, it seems to be more about the plots that the genre has, the characters, and the like. But, if the mechs look cool, then I'm in even more!
cyclone1993 Dec 29, 2013 3:18 PM
Thanks! I'm interested in finding more Mecha series! I just need to buckle down and watch more. Code Geass is a definite watch for me though, hopefully soon too!
cyclone1993 Dec 26, 2013 10:08 AM
I wouldn't really say I'm new to it, but I am certainly delving into it more! Eureka Seven is my favorite anime after all! I've also enjoyed RahXephon, Evangelion, Star Driver, and especially VALVRAVE! Depending on how that one ends, it might become one of my favorites too!

I do plan on checking out a Gundam series in the near future, I'm thinking SEED...
