    So, who's watching which among the new shows? Albeit there would still be a couple of new shows yet to air (they'll do so in the coming weekend).

    All of ZIMA catalog was discounted and I couldn't pass up. :) I didn't watch many of these, although I think I watched some eps of Sandybell, Remi and Tom Sawyer. I watched almost all of Mazinger Z as a kid though.

    CR glitched over the weekend and I could get access to the US CR catalog. Watched Lucky Star on Sunday. Yes, 10 hours straight. *my back is killing me* :D

    Watch out for K and psycho pass, the latter is an interesting utopia cyberpunk...
    Magi for a good fantasy one...
    Hidamari just for the moe and the great comedy, there is also some art and an interesting artistic direction...

    Magi is an awesome manga, but I have had no insight into the anime. I fear part of the reason I do not participate often in this thread has been the rapid decline in animated series vs written. Some divine force needs to inspire the Japanese to greatness.

    has anyone else seen ghost in the shell 2.0? it's an updated high-res version of the original (which, in my opinion in on of the most fluid and visually striking animated movies. ever.) it's only available in Japanese w/English subs. Which i don't mind at all; but i think that the ghost in the shell franchise has some of the better English voice acting I've heard. all in all it's a great remake. except for one terrible, grueling eyesore. The opening scene. I couldn't believe my eyes as i watched this travesty of an opening scene unfold before my eyes. in the original we see a naked major perched on a rooftop of a skyscraper (why is she naked? cause, japan.) overlooking the hotel room of a shady foreign diplomat meeting with a Japanese programmer. year hear the mention of a project "2501" and we cut to sceen of police force section 6 moving up the stairway. cut back to the major in all her naked glory; you see her sever connection with batou and the rest of her team. SHIT GETS REAL. You see this badass cyborg she-devil leap from this skyscraper, naked, with nothing more than what appears a translucent tether; all of this happening simultaneously as section 6 begins to apprehend the suspects. Then BAM! 3 gunshots out of nowhere, diplomat's head explodes! the cheif inspector is like WHAAAAAA???? imposibruuuu! where did it come from? everyone rushes over to the window to catch a slight glimpse of the major's eyes as she waves her hand over her face and disappears into the skyline with her active camouflage. That's an assassination. now how could you ruin something so awesome? simple, digitally animate the major, but just for the opening scene, and leave everything else in it's original cell shading. They didn't even do a good job either, she looked like a ken doll with boobs. If you've ever seen that terribly animated 3-d Japanese porn, that's what she looks like, with abs. sorry about the rant, and the many grammar/punctuation errors that exist within this rant. This and Akira were the first anime i was ever exposed to, and i still have both on vhs.

    yeah the cgi major was fugly, the rest of the movie looks good tho.
    Both the gits and akira blurays look amazing, you ever find someone trying to claim dvd is just as good as bluray for anime throw those or one of the eva blu's on.

    I've dropped Zetsuen no Tempest already. I spoiled myself and saw that the story itself won't get better at all.

    K is quite enjoyable, Psycho pass is doing great, still watching Zetsuen it isnt bad so far, Jormugand ep 3 was quite something, good action and a memorable vengeance...
    Robotic notes ep 3 was also quite good, it's starting to get entertaining...

    I guess either Ueshiba or someone at Kodansha was a Melville fan or maybe the manga was supposed to take another direction (those scissors are the perfect yandere tool) :cool:
