    le piss off?

    :ahee:

    Gonna finish Baka test tonight.

    Watched volumes 4+5 of Witchblade today. My viewing of that has been all over the place- got the first three DVDs in '08 and watched them...and then didn't get the other three until just before Christmas last year. And I suddenly felt like watching them today, after almost another year gap

    If all goes according to plan, I'll be watching Fate/Zero and the final episode of Dantalian no Shoka tomorrow (or later today if you want to be fussy). Can't wait to watch Bakuman 2 in awesome 10bit 720p quality either... well, that's a slight overstatement, but I certainly won't say no to higher quality and smaller file size if it's available. :nah:

    I imagine a few other new season first eps will get overnight releases too; Raws for C^3, Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon and Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! are floating around. :yes:

    As expected, after watching the first episode, I'm intending to pick up Bakuman 2 and Fate/Zero, the former offering a direct continuation from its prequel while the latter was noticeably maturer, something of which I wasn't anticipating (despite the older characters). A definite keeper, in any case.

    Moving on to C3, as much as I like a generic harem romance series, it's very unlikely that I'll be committing to this weekly. However, knowing me, I wouldn't rule it out. :giggle:

    Majikoi was surprisingly entertaining to watch. I wasn't expecting much from this but I'm now seriously contemplating sticking with it for the entire season. I guess I'll give it another episode or two before deciding for sure.

    All that's left to watch is Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon... Given that the director of Dragonaut is involved with this one (hardly surprising given the focus on bosoms), I'm slightly apprehensive about this one... Still, it wouldn't surprise me if I end up watching this as one of my "guilty pleasures". :tongue:

    I've decided to give Kaiji a try after reading ANN's figure review :teehee: I watched the first four episodes at animesoc, and did try to get it once, but everything went iffy. However I decided to give it a try after (general spoilers I guess)

    Spoiler:
    Show

    The figure review talked about the various challenges that they had to do. Having briefly heard about Akagi, I thought that card game on the boat would be a large focus for much of the series


    Also I'm forever mixing up Akagi with Kaiji- I did it here too, only noticed just before I finished typing

    Well Mayo Chiki! certainly chose a weird episode to end on. :hmmmm2: Felt like the kind of thing that would normally be in a DVD special/OVA episode... Aside from that, the jokes got a bit old towards the end of the series, but it was better than average.
    Agreed, episode 13 definitely felt like an OVA or special that was latched on at the end. I do like Narumi, though, so I didn't mind so much. :tongue:

    But yeah, Mayo Chiki was pretty average overall, lacking any plot or character development to speak of. Nevertheless, I found the humour mildly amusing and the characters likeable. Not something I'd probably watch again, though.

    They were really pushing the Mirai Suenaga cameos as well, I'd say she almost got as much screentime as Subaru in the final episode. :p:

    I just posted my thoughts on half of the recently finished series in my blog (the bottom half - I plan to post my rave reviews about the top 8 tomorrow if I have time). I ranked Mayo Chiki 14th out of 16, by the way, though it was quite a bit above the series I ranked lower. :yes:

    Akagi is awesome. Ergo, any character resembling Akagi is also awesome. That aside, it's baseball, the best competitive sport in the world. :yes: :tongue:

    Admittedly, I didn't know who this was, despite watching Culture Japan once or twice.

    Watched six episodes of Kaiji in a row yesterday, and then ran out of episodes on my laptop :mmm: This show has helped to teach me that everyone is an ******* :ahee: (I'd seen four episodes before, so I'm now at episode 10).

    In a way it isn't pleasant viewing (for the right reasons) as you just know whenever something good seems to be happening, something bad is coming at the end, or next episode...

    Watched the first episode of Hunter x hunter...found it so-so. Nothing amazing, but I'll give it a few more weeks.

    Who knows I might enjoy Gon Soku's story :awesome:

    Hope this heat dies down soon :sigh:

    I haven't seen the first episode of this remake, but the original manga and anime adaptation is probably one of my favourite shounen series. Stick with it, you shouldn't regret it (assuming you like this genre).

    Just saw the Ao Exorcist finale and I must say it was somewhat anti-climactic. I guess I couldn't hope for too much seeing as they were concluding the season on a filler but I thought they would try to make it a bit more original. It was a bit too clichéd with the whole rin and yukio combo. That said, I did like it, as usual it looked good and flowed well with the usual shounen aspects. So I guess overall I was pleased just not edge of seat excited

    Despite the cloud of clichés, for some reason, I find myself very fond of the show - definitely one of the better releases this year. :yes:

    It features Keiji Fujiwara voicing a main character, so I'm more then ready to give it a go :awesome:

    Gonna watch a bit more Kaiji now (damn it I still keep putting Akagi at first, even after the number of times the narrator has said his name).


    Also silly layout, I almost clicked neg instead of reply :afraid:
