This song has burrowed itself into my brain. I find myself singing it at work whenever I'm doing mundane tasks. It's like a mantra.

I started re-watching this series about a year ago but haven't progressed past about half-way through. I really enjoyed what I saw of it, but so many of the episodes are rather bleak. That isn't to say I didn't enjoy it. Quite the contrary and that's saying something given my preference for comedies. What I have enjoyed is the mystery of Maetel's past, her true identity and how it all ...

PenguinDust replied to the topic Is Comic Vine down? on the Off-Topic board.
Well, you do know that it's not part of the Anime Vice family anymore, right?I was just on Giant Bomb and it's working fine. Visited Comic Vine too. No probs. This might have something to do with the Big Live Show No 3 that going on over there.It will be sad this year to watch that event without an AV presence...oh wait.

Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin, Samurai 7, Basilisk, Berserk, Sengoku Basara, Katanagatari, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and Peacemaker Kurogane.Lots of action, lots of sword play, storytelling ranges from decent to exceptional.

Sounds pretty bad. I still need to catch the show. The prank reminds me of those fake lottery ticket people buy for their "friends" and then film them getting excited about winning 50 grand only to later discover it was all a ruse. Comedy isn't always pretty.

Just our of curiosity, would Gundam Seed episode 16 count? It's been a while since I've seen it but I think it opens with an in-coming attack alert going off on the ship and Kira getting his uniform on to go fight while Frey remains in the bed.

I don't know anything about battles, but I'm in the Jeannie camp. I think their powers are pretty much the same, meaning TV-magic which can do anything. Jeannie teleported into space, traveled back in time, turned people into all manner of animal and object, but so did Samantha. Now, the one weakness that Jeannie has that Sam doesn't is the bottle. Who ever owns the bottle, can command the genie ...

I'm not into dubs at all, but I started out on dubs so if that what it takes to get more people into the hobby then I wish them the best of luck.

I do remember when people were sending out fan-dub/sub VHS tapes, when if you wanted to watch something and not break the bank, you'd attend a convention or join a regional club. When I was in college, the library in Pasadena would rent out rooms to clubs so fans could gather to watch shows, raw and in English. About 5% of what was broadcast in Japan ever made it back ...

This is going to be a repository for all the other I've watched and enjoyed, but didn't impress me quite enough to make my list of personal favorites. That list will continue to grow, I'm sure but for those "also-rans", there is this collection. Also, this catalog will not contain any romantic comedies or harem shows since those are already being tracked in a separate specific list. I expect the ...

Actually I was just making a comparison between this series and Is This a Zombie in another thread. This show is like that one but with an evolving plot and much more action. However, I assume this dub covers just season 1 which was a little less focused than season 2. Basically, superpowers exist and there are schools which teach you how to control your abilities. All abilities conform to ...

PenguinDust replied to the topic Which anime should I watch? on the General Discussion board.
I looked at your "Anime I Really Liked" list and a number of my planned suggestions were already there. I'm pleased to see someone besides myself who knows of and enjoyed Itazura na Kiss, Aishiteruze Baby and Yumeiro Pâtissière. School Rumble is my absolute favorite anime. I still have quite a few titles I will mention, though.Magical Girls and shows with similar elementsShugo Chara! (and sequels) -- A mostly traditional ...

@takashichea: Hmm, I look forward to checking that out. I like Zombie's premise and characters but I wish there was more to it. While watching it this weekend, I kept on being reminded of A Certain Magical Index and Scientific Railgun. That franchise has a similar setup with a guy unconsciously forming his own alliance from separate, normally antagonistic factions, but there's all that conflict going on at the same ...

Well, not being active hardly anymore on this wonderful site over the past year has been tough. Perhaps I will become more active this winter when I get some time to get back into the wonderful world of anime and manga.
