Secondary Favorites

I've decided to make a little hobby out of watching every subtitled mecha anime, excepting things like recaps and specials. Don't know if I'll ever accomplish this amazing feat (yeah right), but for some reason I want to try it anyway. I'll probably be watching at a slow but steady pace. If you have any recommendations, or you see a mecha anime that isn't already on my list, please do share that information with me.

Sorry for the late reply.

I don't remember muchof the original hunter x hunter, but I remember it being good that is for sure.

>Dislike watching them weekly.
Same. That's why I put it on hold at episode 102.

>I get the impression that Q Hayashida doesn't really know where she wants to go with the story. Hope I'm wrong about that.

Really? That's a pity.

Yeah, I'll def hit you up about it here and there. Soon as I get caught up on a few seasonal shows, I'm going to jump back into it. Probably here in a few hours.

As far as Aku no Hana goes, you just have to get passed the animation and be prepared for a slower pacing. I haven't read the manga, but I don't recall any hate being directed toward straying from the manga. So, I think it followed it really closely. Most all the hate was for the animation but I understand why they chose to take the route they did. They wanted to go for ultra realism. Even the dialogue is ultra realistic, which some found boring, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

The classroom scene is my favorite scene from any anime ever. It was just done perfectly, imo. I also think Nakamura's voice actress put on one of the best performances I've ever heard. She was great in it. I plan on picking up the manga where the anime left off at some point. It showed a preview for a season 2 at the end, but I haven't heard anything, so who knows.

Yeah, I'm five episodes deep and am getting pretty into it. The setting and presentation so far is really nice. That first episode was one of those "the fuck is going on?" episodes, but that just made me want to watch it even more. I don't mind slow pacing and unusual presentation. I'm a big fan of the Aku no Hana adaption after all. It feels like something I'm going to enjoy. I'm about to jump back into a few more episodes here in a bit.

Ah, yeah quite a few peeps have complimented my avatar. Yoshi knows where its at ;)

KingYoshi | 03-25-14, 3:13 AM
Yo! Not sure when you sent this friend request, but I just now noticed it :P. Hell, this was first time I ave ever checked my "pending requests" lol. I like the name, btw.

I noticed Texhnolyze is one of your favorite anime. I've been meaning to check it out for a while. I'm actually about to start it in a few minutes. I heard it starts slow, but gets pretty deep?

MrAwesome169 | 03-23-14, 7:38 PM
you got any i would like

Jody32 | 03-23-14, 11:58 AM
Ah, when I said Casshern I was referring to the 70s series. My mistake.

Speaking of Madhouse, are you watching the reboot of Hunter X Hunter?

I'm just hoping that once it ends, they pick up something else of a similar quality. I'm hopeful that the 19th volume of Dorohedoro comes with an announcement for an anime adaption by Madhouse to replace Hunter X Hunter's timeslot, that would be awesome if that happened.
Ah, one can dream.

Jody32 | 03-23-14, 11:00 AM
Yeah, Tatsunoko is a pretty cool animation studio. I especially liked their works on the Casshern Sins.

I'm looking forward to what they will make of Masaaki Yuasa's Ping Pong adaption this year as well.


Jody32 | 03-23-14, 10:19 AM
Ah. I see. I will try my luck with a Japanese download site then. -.-

I see you are watching Hurricane Polymar. What are your thoughts on it so far? I haven't seen it in years, and I am thinking about just not scoring it at all, because I don't have the memory of it to judge it fairly.

Edit: eh, made up my mind, no score for you Polymar.

Jody32 | 03-23-14, 7:31 AM
hey man

Just curious where you found episodes 72-79 of Ashita no Joe?

MrAwesome169 | 03-19-14, 5:58 PM
high 5 for the old school

AlabastreAizo | 02-01-14, 9:24 AM
Well, I shall not be watching it. You just saved 42 hours of my life. Thank you.

AlabastreAizo | 01-31-14, 10:29 AM
I was thinking of starting Yawara. How is it?

Jody32 | 12-21-13, 4:48 PM
Hey man.

Finally got a day off and I was just scrolling through all the club comments to see how everyone is doing and I saw your post about you watching 5-tou ni Nari Tai on Christmas Day. (I recommended it by the way)

Just saying that that probably ain't the greatest idea. It's a good movie, but it's kinda heavy (sure it ain't Midori Shoujo Tsubaki heavy (but nothing else in anime and manga really is)) its just probably not the greatest thing to watch on Christmas. It is still an excellent drama movie in the sort of tone of Koe no Katachi so I have no hesitations recommending it.
I ain't gonna stop ya, just advising.


ForgoneReality | 12-18-13, 9:33 PM
Yeah, I get that Donpei is supposed to have the techniques and stuff, it was just the way they had set up the show till that point. The fact that he was leveling entire squads of trained police men actually made me very incredulous how any one man could pose a threat to him, future boxing fights included. Yes, the rest of it has been quite good, it's just that factor of going from god to goon that made me really skeptical.

And I'm aware of the subtitle situation, but I've just finished Slam Dunk and wanted to start a new long sports anime, and have been meaning to watch Joe for a while. I have up to episode 64 subbed, which is plenty of content for now.

ForgoneReality | 12-18-13, 9:00 PM
Okay, so I started Joe, and it's good and all, but I'm absolutely baffled by part of it. How can Joe, this excellent fighter who single-handedly demolishes Yakuza gangs and police stations alike, get pummeled by a half blind old man who walks with a cane?

This is in ep. 4 with the stand off in the old building.
