So I randomly started watching the Digimon anime since I never have in my childhood. I was always into Pokemon instead.
I'm only three episodes in; but its actually enjoyable so far. I have zero nolstalgia for this series itself. But it brings me back many years ago when I was watching Pokemon for the first time.

Currently re-reading through the Death Note manga.
I've enjoyed having something to read during my lunch breaks at work.
May eventually re-read through Love Hina as well.

Today 10/26/18 marks the day I finished reading Fullmetal Alchemist. Really enjoyed the series. Have to say I can't really decide which I liked better between the manga and the anime. The anime took a few liberties, and re-arranged the order of a couple smaller events a time or two; but overall it was a great adaptation.

With the site back up and working again, I'll have to look back and see if there is anything I watched or read in the meantime and get an accurate update on the numbers!

Side note - Watched the Fullmetal Alchemist live action movie. It wasn't great by any means; but wasn't nearly as bad as everyone keeps making it out to be. I'd recommend giving it a watch; just for the specticle if nothing else.

Thus far not really noticing a ton of differences as of yet. I'm sure the closer I get toward the end I'll notice more and more stuff that was simply left out of the anime.

Was a pretty good movie if I do say so myself

I see Gunslinger Girl wasn't really to your liking. I have to admit, it was a really slow payoff for me as well. But I think the point of the show is to introduce you to the girls and their situation in a slow, natural way that lets you form more organic bonds with them as the story plays out. The action scenes are nice, but they're really not the focal point of the show. It's much more of a human drama, and oftentimes a very sad one at that. There were times when I would reach the end of an episode, sit back, and just feel this sort've repressed sadness inside. Like, my heart aches for these girls and their situation. For me, the most rewarding part of the show was getting to know each of the girls, understanding what they're like behind all the "conditioning," and seeing the happy little girls underneath it all. Henrietta is a little baby-doll -- she's my favorite, for sure. :D

I haven't seen season 2 yet, and I'm not sure if you're interested at this point, but for what it's worth, I've heard that it's very tonally different from the first, and is more of an action show with a single larger storyline connecting it all. Maybe it'll be more up your alley?

I did it...I can cross one more thing off my bucket list...I just marathoned an entire anime series in one day -- One Punch Man. All 12 episodes, plus the 6 OVA's.

...I don't recommend doing it, heh. I have a thumping headache, my eyes are blurry, and my legs feel like jelly from sitting so long. I need some fresh air. Just felt like touting my "accomplishment" somewhere, so I had to tell somebody. XD

The show itself was pretty good! Lots of great humor throughout. The OVA's were pretty standard faire, but that's to be expected, really.

All right, I'm off to go...step outside for a while.

Since I didn't see it on this website, I'll just comment it here. Watched the Netflix Castlevania series (4 episodes). Was surprised with how much I liked it. It was too short, and could've actually been fleshed out a little more; but I'm glad it even got released in the first place. Hoping for another season eventually! 7/10.
Peruserofpieces Jan 17, 2017 8:25 PM
Ahh, Spice and Wolf! Definitely one of my all-time favorites right there. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :D

I can see what you're saying--I'm eight episodes in, and a lot of things don't really make any sense, but I'm having so much fun watching that it hardly matters! I've instantly fallen in love with all of the characters (even if I don't really understand them yet), and the dialogue between them all is top-notch. Seriously, whoever wrote this show is a genius, and a real inspiration to someone like me who often struggles with writing good dialogue. When I'm finished with this show, I intend to look up the writer and see what else they've done, so I can check it out.

But yeah, this show is golden so far. :D

The open-endedness of Ghost in the Shell is what I really liked about it, actually. The movie itself wasn't so much a story about the Major or any of the other characters in it, but rather a cerebral and philosophical examination of the self, the line between human and cybernetic, and where we draw the line between the two. What constitutes being human? What constitutes a soul? Is it possible to manufacture one? If we are capable of creating machines that are able to think for themselves, do they, too, have a soul? This is all really heady stuff, especially for an animated film in 1995, and I think that's a large part of the reason why this movie is regarded so highly today. It was so far ahead of its time, and yet it still remains eerily relevant today. Philosophical musings and existentialist storylines are right up my alley, so naturally I really enjoyed this movie. The fact that it's all wrapped up in a stylish action movie with a distinct visual flair is a big bonus.

Stand Alone Complex on the other hand was, to me, the opposite of the movie. It was much more cut and dry, and not nearly as open-ended as the movie, so as far as that goes, you may end up liking the series better than I did. To me, it just felt like a futuristic cop show with rather bland, forgettable characters. There were certain moments and episodes that shined, but overall I found myself bored by the whole series. My favorite characters were actually the Tachikomas (if you haven't met them yet, you will soon), and they're not even part of the main cast.

Considering the remarkable difference in opinions we have over certain things (namely, which entries in the Metal Gear saga are the best), I'll be really interested to see how your opinion of the show compares to mine in the end.

Keep in mind I never just watch it, I'm either browsing the net on the side or more recently training up my Pokemon in Pokemon Moon, there's a lot of episodes that don't have much to do with anything so far. 1/18th of the way there!
Applepieman1990 May 3, 2016 9:30 PM
Nice to see ya finally jump on the MAL train. It's a good way for me to keep up with stuff I've watched and stuff I haven't.
