Cuz I have the blu-rays and quality wise, they're pretty dang great.
I envy you. My finances weren't in a good place back when the Blu-ray LE set was released so I missed out on importing it.

Started writing the post thinking of Rahxephon,
An underrated classic sadly overshadowed by Eva. I love it more than E7 though.

I still need to watch Ideon. I maybe saw only the first 5 episodes.

Tomorrow is the day.
Evangelion will return unto legal access via netflix!

Who is ready for a whole new generation of hot takes about Shinji being a wimp and the show being pretentious???
COS I AM NOT!

I'm still desperately waiting for the last rebuild movie.

... It IS going to be the last rebuild movie, right?

Pink mecha explosions, awesome soundtrack and surprisingly great coming of age story. I still love E7. I still sometimes watch the gekko-go stratospheric launch just because :).

So looks like the EVA "port" is crap?
The new dub is crap but subs > dubs anyways
No "fly me to the moon"
They changed some things in the translation for the worse
Also, they apparently just did not translate some japaese texts at all.

So yea, it does have a bunch of issues unfortunately.

Lol that's amazing.

Also today is Kimetsu no Yaiba day

And I just took a look at the upcoming shows next season and it must have completely slipped my radar, but
SYMPHOGEAR SEASON 5

Halfway through Made in Abyss, liking it so far.
It's not going to have a good ending, does it?

I've just been on a Type-Moon bend. After Fate/Apocrypha and Last Encore I decided to bust out my Fate/Zero and UBW blu-rays. :p

Then I decided to update my Kara No Kyoukai collection since it seems I was missing two newer movies.

Today's Kimetsu no Yaiba episode was great. This anime is stupidly awesome. I couldn't help look at that animation of Zenitsu frame-by-frame. I've adored the style of this anime since the beginning and I'm starting to dread it finally coming to an end.

It's so good.

Well, we still have 12 episodes!

This makes me smile stupidly, thanks for putting it in a gif. I can't wait for the soundtrack to be released too.

Do you know if the 12 episodes are going to release back to back with the current ones or if they are going to be part of a second season at a later date?

Oh no, I didn't make the gif myself, just reposted it. Credit goes to PhantomKnight from the Era OT who makes those gifs of every new attack.

Should be no break, just business as usual for another 3 months.

So, what are your summer season picks? I'll watch whatever MAPPA has in store. Enjoyed myself immensely watching Dororo and Sarazanmai this season.

Oh damn! I missed out on this thread and show my weeb side.

Anyways, can I include manga as well? I've been reading Golden Kamui at #senpai's recommendation. Enjoying it, but I think I'll switch to anime. I've recently read Pluto (great reimagining of a classic manga) and Berserk (lives up to the hype and then some).

We have a manga/comics thread here :)

Tho it's mostly been comics lately.
Though personally I don't care, manga is just black and white anime with less frames :p

New season is about to kick off soon. Have my eye on two upcoming anime productions. There's Vinland Saga which I'm already familiar with as I'm going through the manga currently (and it's f'ing awesome), and then there's Fire Force which is attractive simply because of the eye candy. I prefer the stuff that leans more toward adult-ish, so I'll admit Fire Force looks like something I would typically dislike just based on the concept/look, but the visuals in the trailer look so nice. I'll at least give it a shot.

The only must watch for me next season is Symphogear Season 5.


The Fire Force trailer looks pretty nice, though I found the manga to be very meh in the beginning, wonder how the anime will come across.

Then there's DanMachi Season 2, which I'll likely also watch.

So hyped for more Symphogear.

I'm slightly concerned about Vinland Saga. Nothing can ever live up to the art of the manga but it looks a little too generic for my taste. I hope I'm wrong.

Currently catching up on GioGio again.
God damn I forgot how horrific Metallica is. Just watching that power is painful.

I'm watching this season's anime from MAPPA.





I'm pretty sure I've read the manga at some point since the title sounds familiar. Anyway the character designs look good and the story is interesting enough.

PSA that today is Symphogear new season week.
You still have... 5 days? to watch the previous 4 seasons if you're not up to date :coffee-blob:

Is Symphogear even good? Sell me on the series, please...
Quoting myself from page 1
It has guns

Swords


Realistic depictions on how to dodge missiles with a helicopter:


A Beef Stroganoff song


Turning K2 into the 3rd highest mountain on the earth.

Oh and did I mention that they sing while fighting. Because they sing while they fight.
Also pretty obvious Yuri undertones (if you can call them that?).
Note that season 1 is fairly different in tone and QUALITY (dark and edgy) whereas the following seasons still have drama but embrace the ridiculousness more and look better.

Well I'm sold but it'll be quite a while before I can get to it. Another for the list! :whistle:

Nice!

I forgot to mention the watching order.
It's Symphogear -> G -> GX -> AXZ -> XV
(yes, it's one of those shows with "creative" season names that tell you absolutely nothing about which season it actually is, lol)

How have I never heard of this anime? Would you folks recommend it?

Yesssss! A million times yes! Though beware it's quite NSFW...

It deals with A LOT of adult themes, but I loved it. I watched it last year for the first time, and it was the only 10/10 I awarded for Anime that year lol.

Nice, have fun!
Fwiw, I'll keep saying that I found the beginning of Demon Slayer just alright. But it only gets better.
In fact, the anime is about the enter the arc that made me a believer. So hyped for that.

Caught up with JoJo as well.
I'm kinda underwhelmed with the finale so far though.
All the arrow and Requiem stuff has really overshadowed Diavolo, to the point where he really doesn't feel like a final boss. I guess there will be another twist though, since we still have 2 episodes.

Looks like there is one show I need to add to this season's line-up, huh.
Decided to watch Granbelm after I've randomly saw that it's a magical girl mecha show (with 2D mechs) and well, it's a magical girl mecha show. The hot-blooded super robot-ness was strong in this 1st episode.


Looks like it's by the Re:Zero director + character designer, but an original story.

That Eva footage.

20% flying battleships
20% european vacations
20% Angel based robot armies
20% Eiffel Tower Action
20% Unessecary boob jiggle

100% confusion
