Usagi menas bunny, huh. Didn’t know that.

And I don’t trust that much those MAL ratings, you got me here XD

Ah ok, for me it’s hard to accept that game/anime conversions can be good because all the games adaption I’ve checked are way too stupid and soulless to take it seriously ( it comes to my mind the anime of Devil May Cry, complete bullshit compared to the games). As for playing the game, I only played Persona 2, not 4. BTW just finished FF XIII, biggest disappointment ever. It’s the 1st Final Fantasy I regret playing, I really prefer great/dynamic story and characters present on games like FF VII or VIII (FF XII too, even if you dislike it :P) over pretty graphics but simple story and weak characters present on FF XIII

Right now I’m playing Limbo (awesome 2D game) and I’m going to start Uncharted. Is this game that great (in case you’ve played)? Everyone seems to love this stuff.

Nana has lots of potential, I mean, the story seems promising and the characters acts very naturally… like real humans. Plus, the production values are gorgeous, with fluid animation and kick-ass OST. I’m not completely engaged with Nana yet, but I feel that will be just a matter of time for me to love it too. At least Nana is, IMO, dozens of times better than Beck (bad english, unappealing characters and cheap animation), dull as hell. So far my major issue with Nana it’s the character Komatsu Nana, I dislike her, but I think that’s because she acts like a slut, lol.

Yeah, you did recommend me Megazone back than. I’ll, at least, download it here. I drop a comment when I watch it. The OP of Macross is kinda weird, didn’t like it that much.

What if... I am? What are you going to do to me? Because it sounds like a challenge...

It's not that much of a mecha show, though... And the whole theme reminds me more of Eureka Seven, rather Code Geass that most people say. The thing is, that with a better direction, it would be better, because it has something. But the wasted some episodes on stupid fanservice and now they rush things.

I like classical music, so I will definitely watch Nodame Cantibile. Also Shiki isn't from Noitamina, too?

And ah, Merry Christmas. Although I do not celebrate it.

Higurashi? Yeah the plot gimmick=bleh, I really liked the first arc, but after the first reset it just kept feeling less and less interesting, I kept feeling that everything that was being built and explored felt empty in the end. An exception was in the second series the penultimate arc, which yes was very interesting, but the fact that it too got reset and the final arc was disappointing in comparison completely ruined it for me.
Oh and btw I was really really bothered by all these lolibaits in the series, I don't have anything personal against lolis, but shameless catering of that kind always irks me, imagine that I nitpicked about that even in Koi Kaze once upon a time... and the lolis kept getting more numerous and with more screen-time in the sequel too.
Alas86 Dec 23, 2011 10:31 PM
Yes, that would be fairly interesting then. Perhaps if Turn A's pacing issues are fixed in the compilations without much content loss it would be more worth it to go with the movies.
I think it will be fairly soon yes. No, no thats no torrent, that site has DC dl links. See the part near the top where it says download? Just pick one of these links and you'll go to a filesharing site that has the episode for you to get, its simple, for instance if you pick megaupload(the better choice AFAIK), then just wait a bit until the regular download button gets activated(a few secs) and press it... thats all, your browser will get the file.

Its not that I'm against Stephen King adaptations, I have seen some that I like, its just that many were really bad, I can remember one film in particular that has become a running joke among my unimates ever since we had the bright idea of renting it for our movie night years and years ago.
Well, not that surprising, that film is a favourite of many, but as I've told you before, your father sounds like an interesting fellow.
Alas86 Dec 23, 2011 10:15 PM
I don't know about Turn A... but Zeta? Do yourself a favour and just forget about it.
And Penguindrum is finally finished? Interesting, I'll keep an eye out for a batch torrent myself then. In the meantime how is this for you?

As far as I can tell this is true yes, I've seen at least 3 film-versions(animated ones excluded), I kinda doubt I have missed a better version.
Unfortunately I don't think I've seen that one no, Stephen King adaptations are not really a priority for me anyway, they are too random in quality.
But its kinda funny we ended up talking about C. Scott after I spent so long today reading about WW2, Patton included naturally, or maybe it was no coincidence...

But it is also a lot better at what it does than Dead Leaves. The characters are memorable in their outrageous-ness.The movie took the attitude of things like Dead Leaves and Panty & Stocking, and made it more palatable in my opinion. It didn't find it as over-complicating as much as just packing more and more fun upon itself. Sure the reasoning behind, well, everything was pretty ludicrous, but since the entire movie seemed like the staff saying "Why The Hell Not!" it really didn't detract from my enjoyment at all.
Alas86 Dec 23, 2011 9:41 PM
So I guess you had nothing better to do huh?
Its Christmas Eve man, now is the time for a Christmas Carol or sth... which kinda reminds me of the 1984 film version of that, George C. Scott as Scrooge was simply incredible, maybe I'll rewatch that today.
judojon Dec 23, 2011 9:16 PM
So what did you think of the explosion of energy that is Redline? Not much of a plot... but oh, so much fun.

I enjoy the happy ending in Brotherhood, after that whole ordeal and trials I thought they deserved what they got. It was a little bittersweet for Ed but whatever.

I thought the likelihood of the other world existing wasn't very high, and it was sort of forced at the end of the show, which I believe detracted from the impact of choices made by characters. It was kind of random.

Yeah, I remember waiting a month for a single chapter of FMA but I always thought it was worth it. Greed Ling is one of my favorite characters.
judojon Dec 23, 2011 1:22 PM
The only one that has me somewhat interested is Another; mainly because I'm curious/amused that P.A. Works is making a horror series. The two shows I've seen from that studio are Angel Beats, which is immensely overrated; and Hanasaku Iroha, a pleasant slice-of-life which was one of the better offerings of 2011. Needless to say, they don't really have any experience in the horror genre (plus they are using similar character designs as those other two shows) so I'm skeptical but intrigued.
judojon Dec 23, 2011 11:13 AM
Well, now that the semester is done, I have time to pick it up.

Looking forward to anything anything next season?
judojon Dec 23, 2011 10:52 AM
Yeah, Chihayafuru is aiming for the same level as those two shows; but I was only counting shows that were completed this year... my mistake for not mentioning that :P

Though come to think of it, I'm not sure if Persona 4 is going to be complete at the end of the year... it is going to run into next year, isn't it?
Ginga_Daiuchuu Dec 23, 2011 10:45 AM
As in switching around my favorites, it gets boring looking at the same 5 all the time.

I thought Brotherhood focused more on their epic quest to obtain their original bodies back, and that side characters were fleshed out given the extra episodes and almost no filler.

I watched the original long before the release of Brotherhood, and didn't even know there was an different plot going on in the Manga! I was naturally mad at the ending to the original series and the movie. I didn't feel like a wrapped up ending, but a rushed and given one that said "We need to end this filler series now, so fuck you."
judojon Dec 23, 2011 10:24 AM
I'm excited for you...

Those two are the best show's of the year by a WIDE margin, I don't think anything else this year is at the same caliber as those two (minus Persona 4, because I still haven't seen that and I'll give it the benefit of the doubt).
judojon Dec 23, 2011 10:07 AM
Well, considering Usagi Drop's final episode was not a conclusion really... yeah, the final episode was definitely better. As for which series I liked more overall, well, that's a tough one... Usagi Drop by a hair; though I did give them the same rating, a 9, so it really is just personal preference here.
