Woah, you can't just go and say stuff like that. Are you even part of the official regulatory body that decides what is and isn't racism?
Yes.

Nanana's Buried Treasure 4
She's just that amazing.
Why must you tempt me to watch this?

Cake fiend.

Can somebody loop the ara ara~ part at the beginning of this video for 5 minutes? Right after the fourth ara~ would be perfect.

Please, no.
One episode dropped that phrase enough times for this year.

Anymore and I'm going to need to mull over my own raison d'être. Crazily.
I wish I had better answers for you regarding your questions, but it's been waaaay too long since i've seen Ergo Proxy that I only remember the major plot arc. Hopefully someone corrects me if i'm wrong (I think a re-watch is due).

iirc...

1
The Pulse I thought was part of something that happens when Proxies are wiped out and humanity is able to venture out into the sun again. Also the name of the plan in some form too, I think.
2
Proxy One wanted to wipe out humanity and also created Vincent.
3
He survives because he's able to go back to being Vincent. There was also the fact about his creation being different from the others and it's timing (after the project initiation from One) that allowed him to circumvent that.

Ok. I think I need to watch Wixoss right now.
Don't make me watch this dammit.
I'd almost like to say I want to watch that card game show, but much to my own shame madp's summaries are more than what I need to 'appreciate' it every week.
I confess I feel tempted to do the same, haha.
Y'all really should check it out. It's definitely one of the most entertaining shows of the season at this point, no matter how you look at it.

Entertaining for what reason is YMMV =p

Alright.

Yeah, the returning human ships at the end.
I clued in on how Vincent and Ergo were a singular entity and how One was the puller of the strings. But was thrown off by him existing separately.
Ergo's survivability is crazy. Him and One have that simultaneous strike thing and while One is grievously wounded Ergo shrugs it off.

Let me explain what is going on in the above image. The Twitter user sampled the skin tones of Rin, Haruka, Rei, Nagisa, and Makoto, then sampled the skin tones from the hands in the trailer to compare them. The result? @pn_0523 thinks it's Haruka and Rin. Do you agree?
lmao

So far so good. I have some irks about this show of course but so far it seems innocent enough and has the potential to be an actually decent harem show.
And it seems so far to treat its mofu well. We shall see though.
Premise is also suitably dumb/insane.
Ive squeed about this show many times. For other reasons though.

He often called Ergo his "Shadow". The weird thing is is that they're technically the same being but not. One of those kind of logic-breaking pieces of information. They never did go too much into how One created Ergo, but they were the same but not the same.

It's a little convoluted to say the least, heh. Separate, but not separate at the same time. Proxy One came first is the important part.

And yeah, I know what you mean about the strike lol

Indeed, things got convulted more often than not. Especially in a few of those introspective type, was it a dream episodes.
Ergo slaughtered proxies and survived the magic bullet. Ergo is OP, I wish I could be like him.

Thanks though.

This talk of BR region locking has got me all nervous. I checked that Dusk Maiden would run on a UK BR player before importing it from the US, but for some bizarre reason it never occurred to me to check Rebellion before getting it from Aniplex. Haven't opened it yet, and I'd rather not if it's not going to work. Anyone know if it will?

Before I go through what I missed today in the thread, I need to ask:

Does anyone have any positive/negative impressions for the Book Girl LN series? Part of the sale ending today and I thought I'd heard good things about them before, but I can't remember.
I have the entire series but haven't actually read any of them yet. All I can say is that the Suicidal Mime manga is one of my all-time favourites.

Well this seems enjoyable enough so far especially for shaft.
The OP is garbage though.
And it seems like this will be one of those shows.

Did you check the back of the box? Instinctively I'd say that it should work but I can't answer this for sure.

I fully endorse this show. I also spent quite a lot of money acquiring it. That was when it came out though. It should be rereleased. Its bullshit that it isnt.

You know, i may have finished it but some questions about Ergo Proxy still linger with me.
Just what exactly was the "Pulse of the Awakening"?
What exactly is up with Proxy One and Ergo Proxy?
What is so special about Vincent/Ergo that lets him survive everything in the final episode?
Don't think too hard about it. It was a pretty bad show.

RightStuf will sell region locked DVDs and Blu-rays to wherever even if you can't play it (same with Amazon and other retailers too).
I see. thats kinda sketchy :(

Ermm... Funimation grabbed it years ago and even did a cheapo version.
Oh nice. Thats fine then. People should be able to afford this happy little series.

selector infected WIXOSS 1-5

Right now it feels like a dark version of Angelic Layer. Also, what's up with all the incest this season? It has to be a record or something right?

Also, this is 24 eps? Awesome.
Eh, there's incest every season.

I can think of...what, four shows with incest-y themes this season? (Yuzuki/Hazuki in WIXOSS, Tatsuya/Miyuki in Mahouka, Sora/Shiro in No Game No Life and Tooru/Akari in Chaika. Am I missing any?) I guess that's more than average, but it doesn't feel all that notable because none of them are really laying it on as heavy as some shows do.

I'm at work right now and don't have the box to hand, but I remember looking when it arrived and not seeing anything that looked like a traditional region symbol. I'll give it a more thorough check when I get home. Also I'd usually go on a google hunt for the answer but I'm kinda worried about stumbling across spoilers.

Yeah, I got it from RightStuf, but like MikeHattsu says I doubt the UK being a valid shipping destination means it'll definitely run here.

Ping Pong - 04



You can't even escape incest gag at this.
Goddamn this is just getting worse and worse at visual department, this episode is legitimately look like shit :(
I'm seriously considering to just read the manga, half of the point for me to watching this show is the visual afterall.. Like eps 1 and 2 show, this adaptation are capable to elevate the manga looked damn good with Taiyou Matsumoto unique framing and art, but the manga easily looked superior than the last 2 eps that troubled with production issue.

But damn, the manga didn't have this OST :(
The track that play along clipshow that showing Kazama's road to final is so hype, dayum.

Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita

I had this in the backlog since forever and decided to give it a look:

What... the hell... is this?



I have seen two episodes and it´s the most random stuff I have found in long time... I wonder if I should drop it before it affects my mental health but I'm curious.

Mushishi S1 4

Still very nice, I like how collected it´s Ginko, seems like a really interesting character. The pace is slow but it suit the series, really relaxing even if it deals with some serious issues. The art is great, I like how exuberant is the background.

Hunter X Hunter 127

After watching again 126 (and appreciate it even more), 127 it´s a nice warm up for what I assume it´s going to happen. This arc is going places.

No Game No Life

First episode in, loli panties and weird sibling interactions.

Ehhhhhh
I don't mind the fan service aspects of the show. I hate it in those generic moe shows we get bombarded with season after season. But NGNL is really just a comedy show that just uses generic tropes and references to other manga/anime as part of the comedy. When done like that, I don't really mind it at all personally.

...well, there goes any chance of the OT OP having a neutral and not mocking tone.
People said the said the same thing of AotY and that was perfectly neutral and non mocking. Not even a dig at Attack on Titan.

I was considering volunteering for it myself but I didn't think someone else would actually make a claim for it this early, unless he's just kidding around.
Why would I kid around about something as important to anime as SAO?

SAO S2: We're all Master Beaters.
SAO S2: This show keeps Ticking, so we keep Licking.
SAO S2: One more season until Rapelay.
Surprised you weren't the one to make the
SAO S2: Now slightly better than child porn
suggestion.

Some of the events ended up making me feel it really is best to dig into Brotherhood after watching the original (well, Conqueror of Shambala can be skipped) just to be surprised at some of the changes that happened.
Yeah dozen more episodes in and it's pretty crazy how differently things went. Didn't expect
(among plethora of other things)Bradley to be revealed so soon.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 11-30

The show is a joy to watch but the villains need to have their brains replaced.
Letting Mustang and brothers roam free through Amestria, even though they discovered the whole conspiracy, has to one of the dumbest moves ever, even in anime. It should be rather obvious they're not going to stand around and wait for your plan to come to fruition. Should have locked them up as they did with doctor Marcoh.


Ping Pong the Animation 1-4

Well okay AnimeGaf you weren't lying, this is pretty good. Earlier I thought that the artstyle in this wasn't my cup of tea but I ate it up the with no problems. Just hope they won't go over the top with Smile's introvert issues. Feels kind of nostalgic watching this, I think my previous sports anime was Tsubasa 20 years ago. ;_;



Fate/Zero 3
So his wife or whatever is risking her life with Saber and
he's making out with some chick in a hotel room
.
Not cool. Waver and Rider are still doofuses. I knew
Assassin was still around (although I didn't expect Assassin to be a bunch of assassins)
. Archer's name is Gilgamesh. (Great name)

Also Saber is quite cute. Nuff said.
Not going to spoil it for you're but that plot point is one of the few nitpicks I had about the series. Still, you're in for quite a ride. I think along with FLCL, this is at the pinnacle of the anime I watched. Savor it.

Also: Aoi>Natalia> Rest

What specifically makes you nitpick this plotpoint (do not read Psyhco or anybody else currently watching)
I thought the whole point of their relationship was that Kiritsugu had such specific ideals that in order to willingly accept that the woman he loves needed to be sacrificed by him, he needed to do a horrible thing such as cheat on her so he could see himself sacrificing her. He didn't really feel any love putside of mentor/trainee for what's her face. She knew her feelings for him were selfish as well. It was a fucked up relationship but Kiritsugu doesn't exactly have the most proper ideals on right and wrong either. The marriage as a whole is messed up to. He knows that he needs to succeed so his daughter doesn't go through the same thing. The two people he loves most in the world are to be a sacrifice for this whole fucked up war

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin 1-4
That was a really good sets of episodes, with just 1 episode to set up the plot, and the rest was just action straight away. Its going to take a while for me to remember all the names, and I love how the side characters have silly passion/desires and the MC playing the straight guy. The 4th episode really leave me wondering what flaws the MC have, cause I am a bad person like that.

oh and
smart loli always best in my book

It'll probably end up with a sort of harem. But honestly I'm in the same boat when it comes to panty shots, particularly on little girls. It's fucking disgusting. But the show has proven with the rest of the episodes that, while ecchi/perverted stuff does exist, it doesn't overshadow just how clever the referential humor is. The main char is pretty charming for a male lead as well.

The SHOCKU #gamechanger plot twist in this episode is such wonderfully fertile ground for batshit Okada drama that this isn't just about quietly enduring a weeby show to screencap some backgrounds. I want to see what happens now, because it's going to be one of those shows.
Looks like I'm going to have to watch this show now!
