  1. I died, now I'm back. The Shigatsu OVA was great.
  2. o7 Oke. Good to see you on the forums again. Will at the very least share it around on my social media sites, since I'm a destitute college grad. Hoping for the best.
  3. So uh, I'm at KawaiiKon, and about an hour ago I took a pic with Eir Aoi. I'm at my hotel, but when I fly back home on Tuesday I'll have more to say and pics to post -- I'm on my phone at the moment. Also, I didn't like Aldnoah's ending at all. Hoping Ikuhara will pull through on Monday. Carry on.
  4. I knew the ending. I read the manga -- hell, I've been posting bits of it week in and week out over the past few weeks. Still, A-1 did an excellent job adapting the final 2 chapters. I wasn't prepared, and it hit me a lot harder than it did when I actually read manga 44. The power of an emotive OST, for sure. I've seen the first couple of episodes of the first series, but I felt like so little was happening I was ready to drop it. Hopefully this second try will hook me.
  5. I can't wait for WhyNot to finally finish subbing the god damn Bodacious Space Pirates movie blu rays. God damn it, Quattro. Watch Banner/Crest of the Stars for delicious Lafiel. Banner of the Stars II is a goddamn masterpiece, by the way. It's okay. I'm still sitting here waiting patiently for Tytania to get a second cour, or for the Banner of the Stars IV and V novels to be adapted into anime. Hell, I've been hyped ever since LoGH was announced to get a new adaptation. Instead, I'm meanwhile tiding myself over with trash like... you guessed it, Shinmai Maou no Testament. sigh At least I have Yuri Kuma Arashi for another two weeks or so. I believe I said that next season is a backlog season, other than the continuations like UBW and Yahari. Perhaps I'll finally power through all of the Aria series in preparation for the new one in Fall.
  6. It reminds me heavily of the movement mechanics of M&M: Duel of Champions. I need to get more games under my belt. Really wish that it wasn't in a browser window, and that it had a client to play in. I'd like that.
  7. Tell me somebody in this thread is watching Yuri Kuma Arashi. That show has gone full Ikuhara (think the final arc of Penguindrum, for those in the know), and I'm constantly wishing for it to be Monday already so I can watch a new episode. To illustrate my point, a few screenshots from this past Monday's episode: Banner/Crest of the Stars, Tytania (to a degree) You loved Penguindrum, but have never seen Utena? nanisore Go watch that (along with Yuri Kuma Arashi I can't read, you're waiting for it to finish airing, that's ok), posthaste!
  9. So I'm a day late, but Shigatsu 21 aired yesterday. Next Thursday can't come fast enough.
  10. No DeepGift? [RS] beautiful women threads were all due to his hard work.
  11. Shigatsu manga 43/44 are both out. I suggest listening to this track while reading them, if you so desire. Highlights for 43: It has been a tear soaked, wild ride. I'm glad to have shared it with you all together. I don't want to post highlights for 44 -- I'll wait for anime 22 to air before doing so.
  12. It's ironic, I watched Nisekoi to get away from thinking critically about anime and yet... *sigh* Need recommendations on what to watch next: Haikyuu!!, Kaiba, Nodame Cantabile, Sidonia no Kishi or Uchouten Kazoku? Doesn't necessarily have to be from those 5. Nisekoi S2 next season, I believe. Anywho, I'd pick up in order of quality/interest: -Uchouten Kazoku (top 5 anime on my list all time gg no re) -Nodame Cantabile (and all the seasons) -Sidonia (in time for S2 next season) -Kaiba -Haikyuu!!
  13. So how about that Aldnoah? Seriously, I'm looking forward to making Aldnoah club tonight after being unable to be there the last two weeks.
  14. A fresh Shigatsu for a fresh Anime Thread! Shigatsu 20 is out. Highlights:
  15. Shigatsu 42 is out! The denouement begins! Highlights from the chapter: My opinion is only after a glance at the anichart list. I'm very hype for Arslan Senki because based Yoshiki Tanaka, but I'm not a fan of the Arakawa designs (hurr everyone looks like a FMA character). Who knows, if the thre/a/ds include some interesting screenshots and/or discussion, then I'll pick up the show. It's how I got into Junketsu no Maria, after all. Backlog season, IMO.
  16. Wow, slim pickings this upcoming season: >Arslan Senki >Sidonia S2 >UBW 2nd >Yahari S2 >Nisekoi S2 >Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu >Shigatsu OVA Mostly S2s and spinoffs of shows I've watched. The new original stuff isn't looking too interesting to me.
  17. What sorcery is this? I must find it. So, anyone watching Yuri Kuma Arashi? Looking forward to seeing
  18. It's Thursday! Next week looks like it's going to include the , by the looks of the preview at the end.
  19. Like clockwork, I'm here Monday night with Shigatsu 41. Man, there's only 3 chapters left for the scanlators with this manga. I'm going to miss this wild ride, and am looking forward to watching it all get adapted in the next 4 episodes. This chapter had so many great scenes that it was hard for me to select some good highlights. Highlights from the chapter: Don't jump too quickly to watch it. EDIT: _Knobby hit my feelings about Elfen Lied right on the head. It's a 3 on my list for a reason. It's pretty neato, just watched the latest episode. I'm thinking about starting the manga as well, since I hear it's .
  20. Shigatsu 18's out. Highlights:
  21. Shigatsu's anime adapts the manga to a tee, which is one of the reasons why I think I like it so much. There are so many great scenes in the manga that I've read and went "Damn, I can't wait for this to get adapted in the anime." Then, it gets adapted and I get all feelsy because of the way the sound director threw in bits of soundtrack, or how the scenes were adapted during any of the concert scenes. Episode 13 and manga chapters 23-26 illustrate my point well, if you do get around to fully watching/reading Shigatsu. People say Nodame Cantabile is better at this sort of musician-gets-a-hold-of-their-life-through-romance-and-feels story, and having seen both I can't fault them for that opinion. I recommend both. I was surprised at how good Nodame Cantabile was. Also, I like the subtle shout outs Shigatsu gives to Nodame.
  22. Shigatsu manga 40 is out. Highlights from the chapter:
