    I watched it on tv and it led me to buy the dvd's and then i got a great deal on the dvd movie that includes the ost...

    Let me tell you that escaflowne music is some of the best you will find, even modern anime hardly compares, unless orchestrated by yoko kano...

    so whats the consensus, HD movie first, or series first? normally when i see a series in an abbreviated form, i tend to skip large chunks of the movie...


    and no i havent seen bakuman. interesting or not, grainy divX3 files are not a way to enjoy a series. i watch high quality rips, and i'll buy any retail copies of them i find if i liked the show.

    Definitely movie...
    The movie is not abbreviated, its a different take on the same story, more hard and better visuals and music...

    46 so far. chugging along.


    i feel the series has slowed down and degraded at this point, see spoiler.


    Basically since krory was added to the team and lavi was introduced, it feels like nothings happened. they arent even hunting innocence or seeing any new akuma lately, its all just... filler as they get delayed hunting down the generals. there is only so many times a retarded maid akuma can be all CURSES, THOSE DARN KIDS FOILED ME AGAIN before it irks me.

    morpha and my other housemate disagree as to whether or not the first or second half of the series is the best, IMO its the middle that sucks. either side of it is probably going to be good.

    Fairy tail aired normally, bleach too, dunno naruto or op, black lagoon 4 out in raw...
    Things will go back to normal gradually...

    Mussels, it will get better soon...

    To those who like akira, there's Freedom, an awesome 6ep OVA with fantastic animation and music and sfx, from most of akira's staff i think...

    I need to start chugging along with D-Grayman.

    Then I think I'll start the fairy tail that I have gotten.. But, I'm 16 behind Mussels on D-Grayman..

    Glad to hear that some anime's haven't lost it due to the problems.. maybe they'll have something good to watch.. If they can that is.

    i feel terrible for this pun, but its what came to mind first...


    i feel that this shake up will get us some changes in the anime industry. look at madoka - with a 2 week or so break, massive changes in visual quality. Maybe this will be the example that extending deadlines and not resorting to filler, can actually get better anime that will sell better, and make them more money.


    edit: heres pics of what the delay did for madoka. left is what was going to air (and got leaked) right is what actually aired, after they had more time.

    It might make them see that they shouldn't be branching stuff out like it has shown in the past. Keep it in the right country. Not branching it out for "pricing"..

    thats why we should get this club alive, anime is not mean to die but to transform. otakuland is giving its best to not stop anime productions so we better support that. is the less we can do for so many years of entertainment.... anime nation rules:rockout:

    LOL I just played Victoria 2 and then a lot of posts cropped up in this thread lol

    Just watched Bakuman earlier as well, cliffhanger in the ep and we're down to the last two. Same with Star Driver (2 eps left) although I haven't watched ep 23 yet, still downloading atm.

    That is a lot of "change" due to more time.. That's what's hard in since.. You get a anime going, and it just goes as "fast as it can get it".. Then when you get the 10y, 20y mark, you get "deeper, lusher, look of the anime. In a lot of times it gives it much more "depth" into it.

    Sad that it made itself do "better" quality due to a tragic like that..

    Crunchyroll didnt air anime this week, or most of it, thats why horriblesubs had a quiet week...
    Shaft is working on Madoka on the double...
    Fabulous star driver gets a fabulous return this week, bakuman goes on, letter bee, dragon crisis delayed, level e aired, haven seen index yet, fractale and wandering son aired normaly, no kimi ni todoke, no yumekui merry, there was oni chan, and i think that pretty much sums it up...

    FLCL bd rips get...
    But havent watched them thought, they are still in old 4:3 format i think...

    There was gosick too last week, this week episode will probably air too...
