Finished Infinite Stratos. Its not as bad as what most people think. Story is of course not that great, but it depends on what you see the series as. I see it as a enjoyable "watch this over breakfast" kind of anime, along the lines of School Rumble. If you compare it with your average robot anime (Macross etc.) obviously its junk, but if you compare it with your average harem story (can't think of a good example here) its slightly above average imo.

Watching Hanasaku Iroha right now. Not really my cup of tea, but I'll watch this while drinking a cup of tea (well actually they come in bottles now over here lol, "cold" green tea and not "iced tea", although we do have tea from Taiwan...)

i just use a playlist in MPC-HC, and my universal remote to a USB receiver... play, pause, next rewind etc... what more do i need? gives me just as much control as any PS3 does.
I can browse my entire library from the remote on my PS3. No need to build a playlist.

You know I'm on episode 10 Infinite Stratos and it's just another harem with a different setting. It took me all these years to finally get pretty tired of the "idiot goes to all girl school and the women want him but he's woefully dense lolol" storyline. SO many anime do it too! I just started watching Freezing (don't judge!) and it's essentially the SAME formula. In Freezing the main character is a complete and utter dolt though, so much so that I only watch for the fan service (which there is a TON of). How many times can you use the same plot Japan? HOW MANY??? :banghead:

Sorry for the mini-rant, it's just very annoying. Some very good "original" anime I have watched recently: Time of Eve, Pale Cocoon, Kurozuka, Sword of the Stranger (movie), Nyan Koi (hilarious!), Angel Beats, and several others I can't remember currently because I'm at work. I've been watching anime for quite some time, though, so I have a lot of stuff I've seen. I haven't updated it in a LONG time but here's myanimelist: http://myanimelist.net/animelist/Thassodar

Well, all harem follows the same plotline, with slightly different setting. I am sucker for "your average idiot" characters, so I can stand those anime. Examples include Shinonono Tabane from IS, Akihisa Yoshii from Baka Test, the ever so famous Mikuru etc. I don't like a ton of fanservice though (for example Highschool of the Dead), slight touch is enough (Code Geass).

Haven't watched Love Hina yet, Negima is on my list though. I would also like to clarify that I don't particularly enjoy the harem genre, just that there are plenty of characters that I find funny and enjoyable to watch are mostly found in the harem genre.

You should take a look at love hina then, it has a fantastic row of characters with a variety of personalities...

I've READ Love Hina, never watched the anime. I loved the manga to death but that was in my high school years (6+ years ago). I've heard the anime doesn't compare though. Negima the manga was great! I watched a couple of episodes of the anime and they changed some major plot items sooooo much and the english dub was soooo bad (I'm one of those guys :laugh:) I haven't picked it up since. I only got through about 3 of the manga though, but they were very good.

I liked Ai Yori Aoshi (think it might be called Bluer Than Indigo in the US) way better than Love Hina.

We can only wait...

Hmm, i watched both Ai yori, cant agree it being better than love hina, it might be more romantic or something, but I liked Love Hina's characters more and the comedy is a lot better...

Edit: Tiger and Bunny, i am disappoint...
What with the shitty cgs and shitty hero looks...
It reminds me of Karas, it is somehow similar to this one, but that one was a whole lot better...

Quite the opposite for me. I found the characters and comedy much better in Ai yori, and also liked that they threw a little more tragedy into it, to give a broader range of emotions.

Leaving the harem behind, lets move on to better things...

Just watched the last part of the "Young Animator Training Project" Super Veggie Torracman, i have to say it was a very nice story, the animation was nice too, this kind of stuff should work well with kids...

Mrs. just came back birthday shopping for my daughter with a surprise for me. She bought me the Evangelion 2.22 BD.

Speaking of anime on BD: This is exactly why I will stick with my DVD release of FLCL: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004DMIIPA/?tag=tec06d-20

Look at the user submitted screenshots and their notes.

It actually looks worse than the dvds in some spots and comes with no extras. Just not acceptable in this day and age. People are so desperate to have anime on BD tho, that people will still buy garbage releases like this. They could've at least fine tuned the upscale (to be fair, it wasn't done in house. Wish it was tho, as Funi has finally perfected their upscale process) and gave us some extras of some sort. Strangly, the iTunes upscales actually use a different source than the BD's and look better, but obviously lack on the audio and compatibility aspects.

Hmmm, I wonder if anybody has de-DRMed the iTunes version? I could easily a hybrid version of the BD soundtrack and subtitles, with the iTunes video if it was available.

Freezing is Korean. It's from a manhwa. :p

They deviated a bit with the anime though. There's more blood spraying around in the anime :laugh:

I watched Love Hina dubbed (local TV). That's a decade ago LOL

The plot is essentially Korean, since Koreans made it (they're a two-man team, one story writer and one for the art). The only change the Japanese made (obviously) is that it's in Japanese and there are more deaths and blood shown.

Oh, no.. Brain thinking.. Not good!

Now, bleach.. has it finished it's "downtime"? Or do I need to wait for fillers to end?
I see there's an episode 316 out. Is that a new Bleach ep then? LOL

Mrs. just came back birthday shopping for my daughter with a surprise for me. She bought me the Evangelion 2.22 BD.

Speaking of anime on BD: This is exactly why I will stick with my DVD release of FLCL: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004DMIIPA/?tag=tec06d-20

Look at the user submitted screenshots and their notes.

It actually looks worse than the dvds in some spots and comes with no extras. Just not acceptable in this day and age. People are so desperate to have anime on BD tho, that people will still buy garbage releases like this. They could've at least fine tuned the upscale (to be fair, it wasn't done in house. Wish it was tho, as Funi has finally perfected their upscale process) and gave us some extras of some sort. Strangly, the iTunes upscales actually use a different source than the BD's and look better, but obviously lack on the audio and compatibility aspects.

Hmmm, I wonder if anybody has de-DRMed the iTunes version? I could easily a hybrid version of the BD soundtrack and subtitles, with the iTunes video if it was available.
Im waiting for my 2.22 copy to arrive too...

I am so disappointed in Merry's ending, they build up everything but decided to throw everything in the bin last ep. Its so stupid that its painful to watch. The first half of the series was pretty good then they just totally stopped trying.

Sounds like the ending to Welcome to the N.H.K. Soooooo disappointing.
