    While you guys all seem to be bored and with nothing to do, let me present you 25m of fine entertainment:

    Wasurenagumo

    This part of the Young Animator Training Project 2011 which gg subs every once in a while, of which there are 4 unrelated episodes produced by 4 different companies

    : Puka Puka Juju, Shiranpuri, Buta and Wasurenagumo - the four anime works that each received 38 million yen (about US$470,000) from the "2011 Young Animator Training Project." Just like on 2010, the animation labor group received 214.5 million yen (US$2.65 million) from the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs, and it distributed most of those funds to studios who train young animators on-the-job.

    11 production companies submitted proposal bids for the funds, and Answer Studio, Shirogumi, Telecom Animation Film, and Production I.G were selected. The animation production for each short is required to be based in Japan, and professionals imparted their know-how to the young animators through on-the-job training. One of the reasons that the Agency for Cultural Affairs is supporting this initiative is the concern that more of the Japanese animation process is being outsourced overseas — thus leading to a decline in opportunities to teach animation techniques within Japan.

    So this Wasurenagumo short was finely animated by production IG, animation and characters are very good with nice and fluid movements, but the best of this short is the plot, and it will require close attention to details because after it ends you might end scratching your head and you might even want to rewatch and see if you missed something...

    Edit: I wrote some sort of plot since there isnt any on the net, it has some minor spoilers, but nothing that will spoil the fun, just call it guidelines for the start of the story
    The story is about Shu who runs a library and Mizuki who is the the daughter of the owner of the building it seems and is currently helping, trying to recover the rent money...
    Mizuki while cleaning finds an old book that appears to be sealed and accidentally breaks the seal and a something escapes from the book, Shu then tells the story of the book, it is a story of ancient japan and how a certain city was attacked by giant spiders and a valiant omniouji fought them all and killed them, but the spider queen had left an offspring and the Omniouji couldn't bring himself to kill such a beautiful and defenseless creature, but latter on in the story, is revealed men started to disappear from town and the reason was related to the baby spider.
    Back to the present, the creature that escaped from the book resembles that of the creature told in the tale, she looks entirely harmless and loves Shu, but not Mizuki for some reason. The story continues and with time Shu appear to be charmed by the adorable creature and nothing seems to stop that, it's up to Mizuki to try and stop that, but will she be on time to same Shu from the spider's web??

    If you have missed gg's earlier release into the project called "Buta" (pig), its a story about a samurai pig and pirates, very entertaining and nicely animated...

    The only downside of these shots is that they really are short and should be further explored into anime, any of these could easily turn into a 12ep anime...

    So... Zone of Enders HD Collection is going to be coming...


    [=http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/724120/zone-of-the-enders-enders-project-sees-the-return-of-a-classic-franchise/]Return of a classic[/url]

    So... with the return, and the hints at the "new game", will they do another ZoE anime?

    Amnesia is pretty good, darker and funnier too, sankarea is sexy...

    And Nanoha A's is the one getting a movie this time, the first was related to first season, and there might be a striker's movie too...

    *stands slowly*
    Hi my name is Meta, and I watch anime... *serene nods from the whole support group* :laugh:

    Yes I watch anime too! So, might as well post here, seeing as I'll be staying a while.

    Currnently watching: Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, Zetman, Jormungand, Madaka Box, Fairy Tail, Sankarea, Accel World, Upotte, Space Brothers, Mysterious Girlfriend X, Hiiro no Kakera and Hyouka.

    Favorites: (Not in any order)
    - Dusk maiden is really funny in my opinion, the cleverness of the first episode got my stuck on that one right away, here's hoping it stays original and runs good long time.
    - Zetman seems like a fun action show, and while confusing in the first few eps its gotten clearer and more interesting.
    - Space brothers is just a really damn good anime, period. Probably my favorite of the season. Makes you laugh (or cry) and does so without the need for any surrealism - aka other than being a few years in the future, there's nothing non-realistic in the whole show.
    - Jormungand is a fast favorite action anime, bloody and gory and violent, with just enough story to keep it interesting. This is one show I hope lasts a long time in order to flesh out the rather large (read 10 or so) main characters.

    Enough of my talking! *sits*

    Nanoha movie are a lot more watchable than the series imo, the series sometimes feel a bit draggy.
