The mix of series components like the island in between Code Geass and a few million other things. The first series seemed to hold things back for a a while- and I'm curious if that's what they're working towards. The new team's pilot/captain seems to have known Eureka before the era the story takes place in- but it feels like the reality of Eureka might have been tossed far into ...

Toonami was my introduction to shows produced in Japan that weren't produced in Japan. Based on what I know now- few- if any of the shows I enjoyed at that point were really new- or not already well known in the fan community. I was 10 years old. I'd occasionally catch bits and pieces of Midnight Run.I think that demographic is still the group that is most open to and ...

I'm cool with things staying edited so that another full generation of 12 and 13 year old people can experience them like I did. I'd really hate to see the revived Toonami be kicked entirely into the Adult Swim corner.

I think there are three reasons why this is animated- rather than a full-live action show.One- there is a part of the show that doesn't want to be taken as seriously as a live action interpretation would be.Two- the camera work and rhythm bits that the show emphasizes- especially in the "Piece of the Day" portions- is that much better for having the tools and medium of animation.Three- when I ...

I've only ever watched the TV series-would it be worth it to watch the film at this point?

He can make references- but Ritchie's perspective- and lesson- if any- from Gundam Wing- seems very different from mine. Its not really material for what I would describe as "Kill everybody for whatever" gangsta rap. Killing the message as it were.

I'd definitely give it a shot- the concepts and mechanics behind the game seem interesting- and I liked the show a lot. I've thought about buying the iPad version available through the iTunes store- but I'd like the full translation.

Porco Rosso is an amazing film. Its hard to say exactly what happens at the end- whether the Beauty and the Beast work out or not. In this vein I question whether a sequel would work out.A prequel seems more valid- but at the same time- the slices of the world's Ghibli presents are enough for me for the most part. Like a wonderful slice of pie or cake- just ...

I think the jam is more of a semi-humorous- almost more gruesome substitute for blood.And/more maybe just one of those things that people put in things like these.

Life is a journeyEven though these kids are - or become- very accepting of others- its a progression- going forward from Yosuke realizing and accepting/dealing with the reality of his crush- to the eventual understanding of one of the closeout characters with a halo and the ability to mind control your party members.They're all trying to define their sense of self- as played out in their main game and social ...

So- Question: Is Renton voiced by the same voice actor as Naruto?Maybe its that- but it seems like these early stages of the show are like a very anti-climactic and drawn out interpretation of the same plot/personality of Naruto's relationship development course. Though they are relatively standard bits in general.

They start twisting things around in the next couple areas to show a bit more of the plot- but the fact that they take as long as they do- and that the plot points are illogical- if not just not so compelling- do not do this show any favors in my mind.If you can continue to watch Renton's romantic/social antics for the rest of a show- you might have something ...

LifeByDegrees replied to the topic Pick A New Watch & Learn! on the General Discussion board.
I ended up voting for Durarara- with the other top runners being Usagi-Drop and Reborn.Duraraa is sort of the middle between these to- as it has the over the top action of a Shonen- but its also very grounded in a very "This could actually happen, maybe." sort of sci-fi fantasy world.Some of the romantic/friendship themes they cover in the story are interesting- mixed with some exciting social study questions!I ...

It looks good. I just wished the commentators would let us hear the trailer.

@Babylonian I know where your coming from- I remember hearing the main opening theme for the first time and thinking it was generally nonsense but...I hear about big ideas,I share them with my friends.We try to keep communication open (Freedom of thought/ideas are accepted and/or Social Link reference..We can have great ideas- and no one can stop us from sharing them with each other.To stop creative thought is terrible.We just ...

A solid episode overall.The moment when you realize:"Wait, he is going to summon another Persona... He is going to summon another Persona!!!"was classic- and overall- it seems like they're handling everything on a very even keel.We're starting to see the beginnings of the stuff the game couldn't do- such as show us the Chie-Yukiko meet up in living color- an so I agree- it will be interesting to see how ...

Batman is Anime, and Zelda's an RPG. These are a few of the most dumbest (sic) things.
