I'm not surprised I'm not on the wall of shame this time. I've only been following 4 shows so far and all of them are just shounen action shows, so there's not much to say about them.

Magi S2
Hajime No Ippo Rising

Those are the only 2 shows I'm watching that's new this season. The other is One Piece and HxH2011. I'm planning on starting up Blazblue one day but I never felt like diving in.
Honestly, don't.

5 episodes in and it's been a piss poor adaption for anyone familiar with the games.

And the way they've managed to mishandle the story of CT/CS, makes it's all sorts of confusing for any newcomers who've never played the games before.

Man, I'm not even on the Wall this time. I'm losing it. Really falling behind this season, despite really enjoying a lot of the shows on right now. Catching up, so hopefully will see more of you guys soon. Dang school and video games keeping me too busy for anime.

It's okay. Time for redemption yo.

It does have Platinum and Makoto in it though so I have to at least try it. Not really looking forward to it though. Maybe if they put Kokonoe in there.

It's weird seeing Ryougi Shiki on there. She seems like the sort of character who wouldn't be on that list, but I don't know.

She's super cool though.

Went to the biggest food store we have here to see if we have any Häagen-Dazs. Turns out we do, which was fairly surprising. But it's 6,70€ for 475ml! Any other brand costs less than 2€ for that amount.

What I'm saying is the effect product placement in anime has on me frightens even myself.

It was pretty funny. I missed the entire conversation but why did people think that it was the most ridiculous and unforeshadowed plot twist ever? Jw.
Well as someone who thinks Lelouch intended to do precisely that from the get go, I dunno, but I wouldn't say it is the very most. It certainly comes out of left field, though.

This weekend I'll finally watch Wolf Children, I hope I like it as much as everyone seems to.

I'll also watch Eve no Jikan and the second Berserk movie, loved the first one (I'm not into the series though)

Ill watch Wolf Children when the bluray comes out. It will be a blind buy but I have good confidence in it based on reactions here. I believe in the hosodapocalypse!

Oh, by the way, the Anime Sols drive for the first of three Dear Brother DVD sets met its goal, so you've got a bit over a day remaining if you want to get in on that. I seem to recall it being somewhat of a cult favorite around here or something.

Yeah, the reactions are really good and make me confident too. And I just found out it's made by the director of Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo, so now my hype is through the roof!

When the hosodapocalypse comes, I'm joining team Cajun, inasmuch as that means cat ears and tails on mostly human ladies.

Not sure if I'm ready to embrace the full on Bagi world.

I'm not sure if it was the most ridiculous and unforeshadowed, but it was certainly the worst.

I couldn't believe this garbage when I watched it, and was tempted to drop the show. I was still in school at the time and it was a long morning the day after with me and my friend who was also watching not sure what to say to each other, until he turned to me and just said "why?".

We both hugged and started to cry.

Because it relies on
Lulouche saying something completely stupid and out of character, and his Geass conveniently choosing to go out of control at that exact moment.
The chosen phrase was overly convenient, because it's a crazy twist, but Lelouch's attitude isn't out of character. Contrived, sure, but claiming there was no foreshadowing is totally false. You could even make a collage of things from that episode and the previous one which tell you stuff's going to go wrong.

I do like Code Geass, a lot, but that particular part was so bad. SO BAD.

And people complain about fanservice when they're talking about the anime. Fanservice is fucking poetry compared to that.

That part is the crowning moment of Code Geass. It ascended into legendary status to take its rightful place on THE LIST.

Oh nice free ftw.

Though Im no anime sales guru, but why do they track first volume sales, is there much information there versus just the series average as a whole?

I havent seen commentary for code Geass and Im not sure if the DVD set has it. WIll have to look. If it does I might have to watch it that way. I love when directors are like "We just felt like doing this for the lols".

I think because initial interest in V1 roughly shows the sales average, since its mainly otaku buying and they tend to loyally follow and purchase a series past V1. Its not so accurate for US sales because people often blind buy V1 and then decide to drop a series.
