Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

wow animation isn't very good...i beg to differ on that.

but fair on the other points. i'm at the place where I miss a good "overpowered girl likes sheepish boy" plot, and 02's animal behaviorisms are the vintage bones take i've been missing lol

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

SideM is good. I also managed to start: Koiame - it is okay I guess, enough humor and serious, a lot of neither. ryuo no oshigoto - good loli anime because you can ignore the shogi part almost. gonna drop yorimoi because don't like some characters I guess. the new emiya menu is out very soon. toshik...

Re: What are you watching Q1 2018

So far this season... Up: Yurucamp - Probably the kind of kirara slice of cute girls doing cute things the world loves. This time it sticks to the namesake. Overlord S2 - the lizards are great, and the cutest. Darlifra, Frankiss, whatever. I love the designs in the show, and it is like an older styl...

Re: Amazon Shuts Down Anime Strike

Based on hearsay, some of the Amazon guys responsible just didn't know what they were doing. At least everyone on Prime can watch the stuff now, which is what the expectation is. Now they just need to not screw up on subs and such!

Re: What are you watching Q4 2017

And just started to watch Knights of Sidonia. Attack on Titan vibes, but I like the hard sci-fi aspect. I hope you'll like the awkward harem romance vibe later on too. Sidonia is a solid, but I never got around to season 2...not sure if I'm really missing much besides fodder for best girl discussio...

Re: Haibane Renmei on demand

Meh on Lain. Maybe I'm just too old for that chuu2byou nonsense now. Well, I probably was already too old when Lain was new. It was neat and interesting but unlike the framing and issues tackled in Haibane Renmei, Lain gets dated.

Re: Honeyworks?

This is way better than Mekaku City Actors. It's generally short and to the point, as long as you know you are not watching it for the plot. Because these are pretty much the most basic archetype plots? Like, that's not a problem if you are in to enjoy ships or cute characters or music. Or in my cas...

oh my hot takes are now cold D: Top tier: Imosae is my favorite anime this season bar none. sideM is awesome for producers of all stripes, not sure about everyone else. Kino is good for just being something very easy to watch, can't say the content is good or bad... Soma is always a delight, a moder...

I won't be going to the con but I live in DC so I might stop by and people watch. There's a lot of food in the area within walking distance from the con so let me know if you need recommendations. A lot of good stuff is sit down and there's a ton of fast casual chains, some good local good stuff is...

Some of us are going to Fado Irish Pub at 8pm Thursday and Fogo (it's a tradition now?) on Saturday. If you are interested please put your name in the spr...

Re: Otakon 2017

I recently (a month ago?) picked up weiss schwarz as a way to rep franchises/characters, and to have something to do at a bushiroad event. So I've been bringing it to cons sometimes.

That said I don't even have time to play it, nor people to play with regularly.

Yeah I hope more people show up for the two concerts. I'll be jumping up and down (or headbanging) as appropriate towards the front.

The food scene should be fun, as long as we steer away from any Japanese food lol.
