Anime & Manga 5: HISSATSU OUGI!
« on: November 07, 2014, 08:38:24 AM »
And light novels, visual novels, whatever.

Because the last one reached 50 pages and I wanted to name the new thread.

So, I'm still watching 80's anime. Particularly City Hunter. I get chills whenever Footsteps in the Night starts playing.  :p

Just rewatched the first nanoha movie... I forgot how big the bang from starlight breaker was, it totals most of a city by the looks of things...

I have embarrassingly not watched the movies. I have, however, watched the Vita and Reinforce fights from the second one repeatedly. XD

I'm 24 going on 25 now, and the truth is Shounen simply doesn't have the same appeal for me now as it did back in 06'. I stopped following Naruto back on 600~ or so, whatever chapter the Ninja War started, and i had stopped following the anime even earlier.
That is just an illusion you know, take the brony idiots for example (through most I think do it for the cred).

Overall it really was a good story, little hasty towards the end and Sucks was handled with oven mitts, but it handled Naruto's development quite well when it wasn't trying to world fill. It even ended on the exact note we all thought it would which is a satisfactory ending that gives us the conclusion we want rather than a cliffhanger to bitch about just to sell the follow up.

It takes a special kind of shounen to affect my feels these days.

But then again, I'm a close-hearted bastard.

This.

I don't even remember the last time I fel my heart tighten... Let alone that random tear appear in my eyes. Maybe at the end of Code Geass Season 1, with Lelouch and Euphemia? That is quite a while ago...

Code Geass is just plain amazing. Everyone on earth needs to see it twice, because you won't really catch some of the things until later viewings & discussions.

I concur.

On another note... Why doesn't the update for this thread show up for me? I thought i had already posted here... Oh well.

Anyone else seeing Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu? It's kinda of a lighter-hearted Kill la Kill. The heroines and villains have special suits that allow them to draw power from "moe" atributes, like twin tails hairstyle and girly dolls. There's also gender bender and aliens mixed in. From the first episode.

Just came back to the wonderful world of having internet and saw in the old thread here that Naruto is ending? About time.. but sad to see it go. Whats the replacement going to be?

The wife and I are looking for some new Anime's to get into. Anyone have any suggestions? We have watched way to many to list... I heard there is a new season of SAO and FATE out. Guess I will check into those. Any other suggestions?

I know its not anime as such but I just saw the last episode of Legend of Korra and I have to say I couldn't be happier with how it ended.

SAO is skippable, as its the filler arcs from the LN. FSN has the many faces of Rin in between pretty/fast battles.

Going by prefs, try a look-back at Katanagatari.

Next Death Battle: Gaara (naruto) vs Toph (the last air bender)

True to DB's rules no Tailed Beast, and true to DB's research Shipuuden doesn't exist outside of proving Gaara can manipulate Sand without Shukaku. So who do you think would win?

Taking a trip down memory lane and watching Gatchaman.

It has a kinda juvenile feel to it now (the villains like to say "curse you, Science Ninja Team!" a little too much) but it does, at the same time, remind me of the good old time where bad guys were bad guys and Proud of It. Even if the premise is... slightly crazy (what the FUCK does an international scientific research organization need NINJAS for? Why do they dress like birds, for that matter?), it's beautiful, colorful fun that both takes itself seriously and reminds itself it's supposed to be a fun show. It also harkens back to a time where you could have a transgender villain with definite shout-outs to Satan and no one would give a flying fuck.

Too bad Gatchaman Crowds has absolutely nothing in common with the series it takes its name from.

Well, the manga is pretty amusing. There's hints of a yaoi vibe here and there, but nothing overt. And the artwork is pretty gorgeous.

DBZ's new film was released today (well time zones, so yesterday) with a new super form and DB is doing a revisit so they can screw up. And so, I'm doing a revisit too.

Give Akira Toriyama another 2~3 movies. *sigh*
