Off-Topic » With Tokoyo getting the olympics more sports anime on the way?

So Tokyo just got the 2020 Olympics (so start saving your money now) anime inspired opening ceremonies? (Expect not but boy wouldn't that be funny!) and Tom you should talk about wrestling not being in the Olympics and the changes it had to make to come back...

Other than Madoka no and that is certainly only on the fringe that it does. I do love me some c-control though..good stuff. Don't understand it as much as i would like but I did enjoy it.

Want to help me write a law school test question hypothetical? ;). Out of curiosity what type of law did you study/practice. I am going into patent/copyright (which means I am going to end up fighting some anime pirates I guess...)

Puella Magi Madoka Magica » OH MY WHAT A SHOW - anyone want to talk deeply about this?

Heh will I will start then ;). What Buddhist connections do you see here? She somewhat merged with the universe it seemed like but it wasn't an all together positive experience...which seems pretty Buddhist to me.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica » OH MY WHAT A SHOW - anyone want to talk deeply about this?

I just finished this today and I have to say WOW HOLY *(&&^%. This is now right up there dueling as my favorite show of all time. Wow. Gorgeous artwork, action, plot twists galore, and a deep philosophical story that is truly moving. I so want to have a deep discussion about this especially with anyone who majored in religion or philosophy. I see this as really speaking Christianity back to the west but with very much a Japanese/Buddhist slant. The echo chamber that such discussions have become in the post modern world (I can't bring myself to call it post post modern) is fascinating.

Just Anime » looking for lawyers that watch anime...

Ok so this is going to be an odd post but enjoy . I am looking for lawyers/law students that watch anime and have seen or are willing to watch Madoka. I am on episode 9 now where the crap really hits the fan, and while watching the show I found myself thinking "you know this would make a really good hypothetical around public necessity". I would explain more but it would give away major spoilers.

General if you have not seen this show watch it now. This show has reignited my passion and faith in anime. Truly an amazing piece of artwork.

General Discussion » Vice Pit Question Thread

Many of the most famous anime series are famous because they were the first to do something. Outlaw star for example (I won't say to much more since you are watching it and I don't want to spoil). Eva also did some things in the mecha genre that hadn't been done before and Ghost in the Shell was the first anime to show a computer program gaining sentience (though it was the first time I had seen that portrayed I learned later it wasn't the first time it had been portrayed in media). In shows like this were much of the fame comes from being first do you think it makes it harder for people who have seen the tropes these shows created appreciate the earlier shows? (For example cowboy bebop owes a debt to outlaw star..does the fact you saw beop first make it harder for you or people in general to appreciate outlaw star?).

Off-Topic » mania an unsafe site?

So one of the other genre websites I go to is mania to check out sci-fi movies and such and the anime forum. Recently when I tried to go there both my browser and my anti-virus program blocked the site and told me it installed dangerous programs on my computer....the hell? Anyone know anything about this..been visiting the site for years now and have never had this problem before...

Just Anime » when they cry

soo started when they cry the game today and got to the first Tip section...which is an interesting edition...thought I might see if anyone who hasn't played it before (or who has but can keep spoilers to themselves) wants to play through it with me...I expect the signifigant portion of the tips is not the most obvious but not exactly sure what I am supposed to be getting from those yet (I have only watched up to the second disc of the anime trying to keep some things fresh..so I know things go crazy...oh lord do they go crazy..that be why I am looking at this like a detective)

Just Anime » Haibane Renmei vs Angel Beats

@Dream: Hell YES! Now I can feel even better about recommending it to people. Though their description gives a little to much away it still won't destroy the power of the series. If I didn't all ready own it (and the music CD) I would be especially giddy right now.

Just Anime » Haibane Renmei vs Angel Beats

@Petiew: I was going of the use of music in the first episode.

oh yes even half way through when it became incredibly serious HR is a MUCH better show

Just Anime » six episodes in/half way in..tone change anime trope?

well I mean

after the most moe character got shot and killed

I thought the tone changed a good bit...hmm now and then here and there did a similar thing to this...but after only one episode man that second episode was still a shocker though. And I don't like the tv tropes description of the trope..I mean I think in these it was planned from the beginning not something that did so cynically...and most of the shows I mentioned I like (and given that description of Negima..I may actually have to watch it)
