Decided to continue watching One Piece, after a hiatus (school got in the way). ...Also watching Cyber Formula because I managed to find an official English sub of the TV-show and bought the DVDs. XD

PS. ...Summer 2017 anime. I'm flipping out because Saiyuki Reload Blast. Vatican Kiseki Chousakan also sounds fun. (Apparently there'll be a Free sequel in Fall 2017, too. And the Fate Heaven's Feel movies are going to start~ I'll be happy as long as I get to see Lancer. ...Huh. Saint Seiya: Saintia Sho is getting an anime, too. Legend of the Galactic Heroes? And Infini-T Force will have Tekkaman and Casshern characters in it. That's a LOT of good stuff to look forward to!)

Friendly reminder that, being theatrical releases, we won't get to see them until several months after they first hit. How long after? Who knows, I understand Kara no Kyoukai hit DVD fairly quickly so hopefully this will be a similar situation.
This sure is a signature.

I'm patient~ Being part of the Initial D fandom has helped with that. XD

I guess I should watch all the Brave series, Getter Robo Armageddon and Shin Mazinger Z... why is the music in Might Gaine so good...?

So with last weeks episodes of Boku no Hero and Shingeki no Kyojin i was truly 100% sure that they were season ending episodes from the way looked and felt. Today i am surprised to see new episodes, which is a great thing for sure.

Wait what? Last week's episode of Shingeki no Kyojin was the season finale. Though in Japan they actually announced a season 3 immediately, slated for next year, but we're not seeing episode 38 before that.

Yeah i was fooled by the HorribleSubs Release Schedule, which still has Shingeki no Kyojin on it.

I would give my left nut for another episode of SnK. Meanwhile the line-up for summer 2017 seems very depressing.

Anyone seen the movie Harmony?

I watched this last night and well... it was a thing.

On the one hand it largely consisted of the main character narrating a bunch of exposition with occasional brief interludes for actual story, but on the other hand that main character narrating the exposition was voiced by Sawashiro Miyuki, who I'm not at all against listening to talk for a couple of hours anyway. Maybe if I treated it as an audiobook which just happens to have animations, rather than a movie, I'd rate it more highly.

Started watching Zenki



This is one of the most 90s openings I've seen in a while. Hironobu Kageyama somehow manages to even make lyrics on the level of "VAJURA ON!" into something remotely awesome-sounding.

The show itself is very episodic and meh so far, hoping that after a while it will kick in with some real plot, once introductions are out of the way sort of thing.

Is Youjo Senki any good?

Opinions differ. I liked it a lot. Chris despises it. The best way for you to know is to check it out, and be sure to watch up to Episode 2, where the real hook kicks in (admittedly, Episode 1 is comparably weak). I've seen it interpreted as anything from lolicon Nazi propaganda to anti-capitalist criticism, so you know you're in for a ride.

Youjo Senki is amazing. Watch it, give it at least 3 episodes that'll be enough for you to determine whether you like it or whether you are an insufferable person who likes to kick puppies. (just kidding)

Actually it's utter garbage designed to make otakus of both loli anime and military themed stuff double-orgasm. If you watch it, you're actually a degenerate. (just kidding)
