    FSN is aight. UBW is awesome but VERY rushed. FZ is a prequel so you can watch it without having watched the others.

    This, you must know the backstory of FSN (game, manga, anime, etc) before watching F/Z, or you will miss out at least half the fun.

    No, you should watch FSN first, then FZ. Too many "spoilers" in FZ, but if you want to watch FZ first, I cannot stop you, since its "natural" to watch FZ first over FSN.

    UTW has translated FSN :D

    Watching FTN actually helps with FZ because you have no connection to the story and setting, even i was a bit lost during the first half of FZ, but things picked up fast...

    Fate zero should be awesome. In the game (FSN), Kotomine mentions that all the other contestants were "monsters" in comparison to him and it's not like he himself was a noob.

    New index movie announced. I can't wait for the 2 hour long punching-b**ches-in-face fest to begin. That stuff was hilarious.

    @djisas: Yah, I grabbed it off sankaku.

    First episode is good for Fate/Zero, it sets the scene very well.

    What i said, if they had cut it in half, i would be lost, but with this, they cut just right at the good part and sets the mood for the anime, and Saber on a black suit is win

    [​IMG]

    Ao exorcist is over, finally, it was pretty much a lackluster shounen anime, a few interesting characters, visually decent, it was ok, not something i would recommend though...

    C3, new season anime, cube transforms into pretty girl, boy sees pretty girl naked, then girl quarrels with "cow" tits girls and they have a nice discussion about tits of course, music ok animation nothing extraordinary, just an average first episode...

    No, you cant compare them, im quite sure Baka test i leagues better than what C3 might be able to present...
    At least in the comedic department...

    I saw some good visuals on C3, but i stand unimpressed, for now...

    I have just watched the first of 2 shiki specials, ep 20.5 and its easy to know why it didnt air on tv, its basically 20m of horrorfeast not for the faint of hearth...

    Twentieth Mourning and Malice

    The episode starts with yasumori Nao in the bar reminiscing her past from her early days on the Village. Moments later it moves on to the Shiki, where they have found a new hide out for the night, escaping through the tunnels, moments later, a team of villagers arrives at the local and that’s when madness starts…
    Taking advantage of their sleep, the hunters descend on the tunnel and after gathering the courage they start slaughtering the hapless Shiki who have fallen into a deep slumber for the day, one by one, a stake is violently hammered down through their hearts in a bloody display of carnage. The hunters keep moving forward as the Shiki awake and retreat to the deeper parts, only to get pursued and slaughtered, and when they are trapped they decide to retaliate managing to bite some of the pursuers, but they are outnumbered and unarmed thus the hunters have the advantage and dominate every Shiki while some run deeper into the tunnels.
    Man has no mercy for the creatures he fears, and in his view, all that poses a threat to his dominance over the weaker creatures must be destroyed, and that applies for Humans themselves, the hunters that fallen prey to the Shiki ambush are killed just like any other Shiki, and their corpses dragged to the outside making no difference…
    The shiki that managed to run is trapped in a dead end, and slowly dragged to be killed, all while the Hunters are singing as if to exorcise their demons, and when they run out of stakes, the remaining Shiki, are beaten, dragged to the outside, tied to trees or to the ground, while waiting for the Sun to rise on the Horizon and burn their flesh in a slow agonizing death…
    It’s not just some mindless slaughtering, and it has quite an impact with a violence rarely seen before on anime, the music playing through the episode is a haunting melody that serves only to enhance our perception of the fear, and we can almost smell the stench of death…
    This episode has little meaning for the plot development, it serves only to show one situation that had only been mentioned in the main story…

    I'm surprised nobody's said anything about HunterxHunter. The first ep was quite good. They're starting from the beginning of the manga.

    @Cold Storm: How many posts do I have in this thread?

    HunterxHunter remake in the style of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood? I haven't watched the first season yet, so I am not going to touch it.

    Not really. The first series story followed the manga to a tee but since it's quite old they're starting from the beginning anyway.

    No HxH for me either, still waiting for the blockbusters besides FZ...
    Already started working which aired almost a month ago...

    Horizon ep1: Im sold, a fantasy epic of epic proportions?? When was the last time watched one?? Mb 2 years ago or something...
    Huge varied cast and all start voices, good animation, good upbeat music that goes well with the action, and dat teacher, totally badass...
