Hmmm, what might this Friday's Animator Expo short be? Key Animations from Mobile Suit Gundam?

http://animatorexpo.com/news/16

<Brief Overview>
MOBILE SUITE GUNDAM series are still favored by various generations, passed its 35th anniversary.
The animators who played the core roles in the memorable first series MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM are Yoshikazu Yasuhiko・Ichiro Itano.
We would like to leave the key animations as the film production to posterity to praise their achievements, which influenced not only on the audience but also on the current anime industry.

On the other hand I watched Aldnoah Zero in the past two days and that was absolute great. The show was dumb, mindless, unoriginal, incredibly mediocre. I didn't have to think, I didn't even have to pay attention since it was so obvious and predictable. Hell I tune out the last 3 episodes almost entirely. I guess any recommendation for mediocre shit like that or mindless train wrecks would do.

All you have to do is search for 'harem comedy' shows and then just watch every recommended show. Chances are that you'll throw a dart on something and it'll be a crappy mediocre anime. Bonus points if it's a show with a gary stu character.

See I tried that and those shows just spend too much damn time on fanservice, very little advancement of the plot happens. They are too god damn boring, there is no inherent entertainment in fanservice and the commedy ends up being dull and worn out.

It starts out vague on purpose. you are supposed to be completely mystified by what its doing and soon it will become a lot clearer why things are as they are. In fact, the answers are right under your nose.

Oh not to worry. After seeing all the praise heaped upon it here, I felt bad for dropping it so soon so I'm sticking with it for an extended period of time at the very least.

Interesting stuff about the heroic spirits being forced to do this, stripped of their will and made to serve humans. Or atleast that seems to be the picture for Archer.
What a surprise, Captain Douchebag is a master. I feel the newest reveals of Servants seems to be on the 'evil' side.
I think I'd enjoy this more if they all were presented with neutrality and from their point of views. Looks like things are finally starting to happen now though.

That's a...peculiar approach. I don't quite get it because most of the show is great. Pretty much every episode features some new and entertaining development that builds upon the insanity that came before.

There are plenty of 'bad' anime that could do with trimming though e.g. Street Fighter V.

And so they have to get a better score on the next test so the club doesn't get shut down. At least they didn't have to get 100%.

And I guess that really was an Evangelion reference back in episode 3. Wasn't sure before the reference in this episode :P

Is Pupa so bad that it's genuinely entertaining? There's some pretty high standards to be met for a show to quality as list-worthy.

Heres one of my guilty pleasure series that nobody else seems to like or know
Shangri La. It was fairlyu ambitious and had its heart in the right place but tried to do way too much. Its definitely a trainwreck but a fun one.

You should watch the rest of it too. I also watched the first and last episodes of it but I watched the rest of it recently. You end up missing on so much crazy stuff if you just watch just Episode 1 and 21 alone.

To answer your previous question you should watch Engage Planet: Kiss Dum.

It may be because of Chip and Ironicus' Anime Theater which showed the first and last episodes of Silver Fang. It's how I got introduced to it and how I watched it initially.
