Re: What animes/series are you watching right now?
Crap...now all the spoilers are naked. :p

(Until you pull a force-refresh, that is.)

 
Re: What animes/series are you watching right now?
Watched Diebuster again. Still not as good as the original Gunbuster, but I love all the callbacks to the original in this series.

"Fluctuating Gravity Well" is up there in terms of strangest monster names I've ever heard, though. Sounds better than "Space Monster", I guess.

They just called them that because that was how they initially detected it. They didn't know it was a monster at first. IIRC.

Re: What animes/series are you watching right now?
Yeah, I realize that.

Also, is it just me or were the Fluctuating Gravity Wells a lot scarier than the Space Monsters of Gunbuster? I don't remember any of them screaming, or being anywhere near that powerful.

Maybe it's just because
Spoiler:
mankind's technology has degraded so much that even one Monster is capable of devastating them... when in ages past they could fight off swarms of billions... really throws into relief the sheer power of degeneracy reactors.

Re: What animes/series are you watching right now?
Yeah, I like to think it was done to make the first war seem that much more epic and to elevate Noriko and Onee-sama's accomplishments.

A group of other CS grad students and I are watching Moyashimon Returns, Gurren Lagann, Darker Than Black, Natsume Yujin-cho, and Samurai Champloo.

Just started "A Certain Magical Index", which I've heard a lot about.

So far it's interesting. But if I'm reading up on the series correctly, it's yet another one that doesn't get through the original source?  :rolleyes:

Trying to work through my fairly-substantial DVD backlog, and the current target is Mushi-shi.  The first episode fits what I've heard about it, which is almost all good stuff.  It reminds me a little bit of Kino's Journey.

There are currently 26 main novels, the two seasons cover 13 of them.

Also, Accelerator is a badass among badasses.

Re: What animes/series are you watching right now?
Are they planning to adapt the full 26 novels, or just halt at season 2? Or is this not known?

Also, Accelerator is OP as all get-out. At least, from what I've heard. He still hasn't actually shown up as far as I've watched.

No idea regarding a 3rd season.

I kinda want to see a To Aru Badass no Accelerator spin off. His rants against his opponents are just epic in the novels.

Light novels are meh in my opinion, but yes Accelerator is badass and follows in House's curmudgeon mentality :D

Watching Seitokai Yakuindomo, nice enough anime. Does anyone have other suggestions of similar shows? Slice of life, comedy stuff.

Recently started watching Gravity Falls.  How did I not find this show before?

Plenty of that, though none as uh...filled with just innuendo and not actually explicit scenes.

Well uh...I've never really done recommendations before but in said genre I can say I found these ones similar and really liked them:
Seitokai no Ichizon (second season of this is airing soon! /excite)
Yuru Yuri (second season just finished! /cry)

your mileage may vary, much less crude jokes, so possibly much less funny (or just funny in a different way).

World of Tanks The Anime


Girls und Panzer

First episode didn't have much tanks except for the teaser scenes with a bad frame rate before the OP. Just like in the first manga chapter.
There should be more when the series goes further, but I don't really know since I haven read any more than the first chapter.

Well, going with "Slice of Life/Comedy", I love Working!! (Just watching the second season of it with the girlfriend)

Cute girls and Tanks... what else could be the reasons? A somewhat odd combination I agree, but I've heard worse.
