  1. Summer 2018 Anime Discussion

    I've so far checked out five of the summer premieres: How Not to Summon a Demon Lord: Overall it's good enough so far (only watched the first episode). It's nothing outstanding, but the jokes are funny enough and the fanservice is good enough...though I can't help but feel I'd be enjoying this more if this were an eroge since then it wouldn't have to hold back on the harem and H stuff at all. Angels of Death Only watched the first episode. This one's just okay; the mystery around the girl and the place she's trapped in has me curious, but other than that I'm not all that impressed so far. The twist with the doctor was obvious from the get go and admittedly the guy with the scythe looks more silly than scary. Harukana Receive It looks nice, but admittedly the sports aspect isn't really appealing to me that much. The moment the anime started hinting one of the girls used to play volleyball but doesn't anymore the first thing that popped into my head was "Okay, who died?" and sure enough at the end of the episode... Also I get the main appeal for this anime, in fact it reminds me of this little sum up of the main reason people watched Baywatch: Cells at Work Watched episode 1 and 2. This may be the best of the bunch as I'm liking the wackiness of this show be it the character antics, how something mundane like a cut is portrayed as affecting the characters, or how the villains of episode 2 get beaten. Angolmois Watched the first episode and I liked what I saw. The premise and main cast is interesting, the animation's nice, and I really like the opening (gives me an old samurai film feel, though considering that and the historical event this is centered around I'll be surprised if any characters survive at the end of this).
  2. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Got ending A for Nier Automata, pretty much an okay ending though my only real complaint is Adam and Eve, they just weren't around enough for me to get all that invested in them as villains. Maybe the other endings will do that better. Still, before that I've started on the Persona 5 crossover event in Granblue Fantasy and enjoying it so far. The crossover character interactions are nice though a certain scene at the end of the first chapter kind of has me wishing the Persona 4 cast was here too.
  3. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Decided to take a little break from Super Robot Wars V and play Nier Automata and I've gotten as far as killing Adam. So far I like the game well enough, the design for the characters and world is surprisingly good, the music's excellent and 2B and 9S are good enough as main characters, even if it is a little weird how they seem to swap views regarding the machine creatures' sentience. Still I'm pretty sure I've read and watched enough science fiction to guess the plot twist that's going to be revealed probably near the end: My guess:
  4. What are you playing?

    Okay, I finally got around to finishing Ritsuko's route in Princess Evangile and...wow. It has been a long time since I've played a route where I really liked the heroine, her relationship with the protagonist and arc, only for it to be brought down hard by an incredibly dumb final act. Even when the whole conflict was over, I was basically like this to the end credits (even including the final ero scene)
  5. What Are You Playing: Video Game Edition

    Been playing Super Robot Wars V and been having a blast playing it. Just seeing so many mecha anime coming together in an "everything and the kitchen sink" kind of way just reminds me of the good and fun aspects of back when I read and wrote multicrossover fanfics. Gameplay wise I think the funniest thing is how the FMP mechs have an absurd natural dodge rate against nearly everything I've encountered in the game so far, and thanks to that these guys, whose weaponry consist of machine guns, missile launchers and giant army knives are easily taking out Gundam level mechs along with star cruisers

    Glad to see we're finally getting a complete edition of Vesperia officially in english.
  7. Spring 2018 Anime Discussion

    Episode 8 of FMP: Invisible Victory was good enough, the action was pretty good and it does look like the plot's going to move forward. Still Episode 10 of Hinamatsuri was fine, but something about the first half just felt like a little too much was packed in there on Hitomi's end. Anzu's half was better, especially in pacing, even if it was a bit predictable.
  8. Granblue Fantasy [English Language]

    Enjoying the Handsome Gorilla event: some of the crew go to a yaoi doujinshi convention and try an energy drink that makes them see other people as gorillas. Just good crazy fun
  9. A Sky Full of Stars - +18 Restoration

    Yeah, this looks really good and definitely has me looking forward to playing the finished product. Best of luck to you
  10. John Bain AKA Total Biscuit has passed.

    I watched him from time to time whenever his videos had something interesting to me. I'd heard he stopped posting for medical reasons, but I didn't know it was that bad. May he rest in peace and all the support and comfort to his family and friends.
  11. Also signed, might as well put up as close to a fight as we can.
  12. Spring 2018 Anime Discussion

    Decided to take a look at Megalo Box as that's been receiving its share of praise, watched up to episode 7...and I really like this one too. It's a good futuristic underdog boxing story with a good cast of characters (I especially liked Nanbu's development) and the design for the anime is really nice. It looks and feels like an anime from the late 90s, so much so I hope it does end up on Toonami in a year or two. I guess if I had any complaints it's how episode 7 ends... Edit: One more bit of praise: They sure picked a badass sounding main OST:
  13. Spring 2018 Anime Discussion

    Watched the latest episode of Golden Kamuy, one of the highlights was drunk Asirpa Also decided to try out Ge ge ge no Kitaro and watched up to episode 5. Liking it so far, it kinda reminds me of the Real Ghostbusters cartoon with its more kid friendly monster horror, plus I do like the friendship Kitaro and Neko Musume/Cat Chick make with Mana. Plus it also helps that the opening and ending are surprisingly catchy Also did not even know this series existed. I may check out what I can of the older series later. Plus on a side note, does anyone else think the rat youkai kind of looks like a Dr Seuss character?
  14. Spring 2018 Anime Discussion

    Can't really say, I just view the former as a running joke that kind of gets lost under the funnier jokes, while with the latter my main reaction is "Ah, Kaos is a bit of a masochist... funny and surprisingly fitting". Tried and got caught up on Golden Kamuy today and I have to say this was a very pleasant surprise. Not only was I not expecting it to be this good, but it also wasn't what I wasn't what I was expecting at all. I was expecting this to be a grim dark series similar to Ninja Scroll or Basilisk, but was surprised at how humorous Sugimoto and Asirpa could be, at the great chemistry between the two and...damn, I really like Asirpa: she's badass, she's funny and the show does a really good job with her expressions.

    Got caught up with Comic Girls and this latest episode's new character was pretty funny, especially Kaos' reactions to her, kind of reminds me of Nekozawa from Ouran. Also liked how in the second half they actually followed up on that little reveal with the teacher in the last episode. Also watched the latest episode of Hinamatsuri, first half was as funny as I expected, while the second half...wow that's a Nat 20 hit to the feels. Got me really invested in seeing what happens to Anzu next episode. So glad I waited till after I got home from work to watch this episode or this would have been me:
