I'm definitely watching Jormungand as well. The cast was just really well-done, hopefully they'll fix some of the derpy gunfights it had.

So far I've watched the hyped KyoAni Chunnibyou which I went in expecting to dislike, probably because I was disappointed with Hyouka, but it turned out to be pretty decent for the first episode. Busou Shinki; a show about little action figures fighting, wasn't too bad as well. Both of them are practically just moe though.

Jormungand's doing fine so far. Hopefully they get down to the action soon.

I've taken on Shin Sekai Yori, and I'm liking what I've watched so far, as well as Girls und Panzer, although it's not something I'd recommend to a serious person. It's 100% moe + tanks, which is fine to watch for fun. Hayate isn't what I expected going off of the couple of episodes I've viewed so far, but whatever. The latest issue of HnG made up for it (DAT RUKA).

Yup, Jormungand is same as always. I actually love Girls und Panzer, especially when you're watching with the troll German subs. I'd recommend Psycho-Pass to anyone really, it's a mix of The Minority Report and Brave New World, dealing with sci-fi, psychological and philosophical aspects as typical of Gen Urobuchi (Saya no Uta, Fate/Zero, Madoka). I went in thinking I would dislike Chunnibyou after being disappointed to hell by Hyouka, but it's actually a pretty damn good comedy with only small moe elements to it. Really good for that awkward nostalgia feeling of when you were a kid and acted like a superhero or Goku.


Also, I watched the Madoka movies part 1 and 2 at the first day it came out. Despite it being a recap of the entire show, with somewhat poor merchandise and a very small theater, it was one of the most enjoyable experiences ever.

Free poster, signboard, and a keychain I bought from the movie. Apparently the poster and signboard are going as high as $120 at places like amazon!

I'm really really sad that Girls und Panzer will be delayed until March. I have no clue as to why, but the show was one of the most enjoyable things this season despite being pretty mediocre all-around.

Upcoming season's most hyped show is Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. Story is basically your typical Hero defeats evil and faces the Demon Queen, only to join up with her to save humanity. With all the typical JRPG stuff, it's also apparently going to go through the working of medieval economy, agriculture, and the like. The main voice actors are Jun Fukuyama and Ami Koshimizu, pretty famous duo voice actors who did Code Geass (Lelouch and Kallen) and Spice and Wolf (Lawrence and Holo) together.

Not really too hyped about it, but definitely on my list of things to watch.

I have no idea if anyone here is a fan, but Madoka Magica: The Last Rebellion movie theater locations for the United States and Canada are now out! Earliest time is for Los Angeles peeps for December 3, with a pricey $40. The other show times for US range between early December to really late.

Yeah, them cancelling bleach disappointed me last year or whatever. In terms of new anime, what are your interests? For me I am a fan of your syfy mech stuff like gundam, macross, and others but I also like some dramas and even harem anime. What are some of your favorites?

Oh ok Marcus! lol. So basically you grew up on many of the same anime I watched. The one you're not sure on was Rurouni Kenshin.

In case you haven't seen it yet, there was old series I really enjoyed back in the day you may have not seen yet. Try the series "Record of Lodoss War" There are two of them so check the older one first. It is fantasy based series with warriors, dragons, elves etc. Its basically a story of a boy trying to become a hero like his father before him. He befriends an High elf by the name of deedlit and they journey together to fulfill this quest given to them by a king who is in the midst of a war with a neighboring kingdom. It has magic, sword duels and a clear cut good/bad guys. The second series takes place some years after the first one and focuses a bit on the successors of the first group. I suggest checking it out if you can find it.

Has anyone been following the korean webcomics? From looking a the plot and the art on some of the good ones, they can rival the big names.

I'm not following this thread, so maybe someone already talk about it. Has anyone read "I am a Hero" by Kengo Hanazawa?

Anyway, some people think that the way all the characters in the manga reacted during the first few days of the incident, is absurd. I think its not that absurd, but the idea that such incident could occur is the one that is absurd. Which makes it kind of realistic, that most people who are put in that situation, react that way.

Maybe the author stretched it a bit too far, but I think most people would react that way.

Opinion?
