    so tell me jelly man is the 11th horrible subs wandering son ep the same as the 10+11 released previously:hmmm:
    Nope, Hourou Musuko was meant to be 12 episodes long, but they had to cut it down to 11 to fit in the noitaminA slot. So TV episode 10 is actually 10 + 11, while TV episode 11 is the 12th episode finale. :yes:

    Anyway, on a side note, I'm intending to post the guide first thing tomorrow. :smile:
    Well that'll be one thread for stickying, no doubt about that. :yes:

    (Original post by Aiko)
    As for the second sticky, having Cara's preview thread(s) is definitely an option worth considering. :smile:
    Fully agree on that too.

    Certainly nobody intended to move the thread here to upset any of you, I thought you would have wanted a society to be in the relevant forum. I have to admit I've never quite understood the point of the societies forum, all of the societies I've been a member of have been in the forums for those activities (either football or film).
    Meh, it's really not that big a deal. I'm just a bit very OCD about some things, and sticking forums in the right place is one of those things. :giggle:

    Just embarked upon watching Ah, My Goddess, up to episode 13, but its a dubbed version (I've only watched subbed up till now) and the voice of Skuld is so annoying. I hope that the vocal role that she currently has gets cut back, I just can't take it for much longer!
    That's a shame, I like Skuld as a character, not sure I'd like the series at all if I couldn't stand her voice. :no:

    Not sure I approve of Nutbladder's translation of Zawa though, even if that's pretty much what it means. :p:

    Quick question, I know it's silly given it's part of the forum, but is it fine to create new threads in the subforum? Don't want to end up perhaps having too many at once and seeming spammy or something :nyoron:

    Regarding they're relevant to the forum and can spur discussion, I can't see why not. Fire away, Tru-pyon. :hugs:

    So, after watching the last episode of my 'guilty pleasure', Infinite Stratos, it was a reasonably fun series to watch. There wasn't much depth to be had here, despite the underlying storyline regarding the IS that could have been explored more effectively than it was. Instead, much of the screen time comprised Ichika’s growing harem, which, while highly generic with cliche aplenty, was entertaining for those of us who are partial to this tried and test formula. Expectedly, there was no clear cut winner in the end for our protagonist's affection, but the "childhood friend" had a slight advantage. Personally, the chemistry Ichika and "Char" had made her my favourite. I suppose my only grimace was the fact that the animation, especially during the battle sequences, was never utilised as much as it could have been. The first and last episode were the only two that made use of it fully, but I suppose that's largely down to budgeting and capitalising on it at the right moments.

    Would I re-watch this? Maybe. Would I reccommend it? Yes, if you're into the archetypical harem genre, but with an action/mecha musume twist. :smile:

    Of course. I don't know too much about anime (I can't read half of the thread titles I've seen so far :p:) so I'd ask you all help me out a bit with a little self-moderation in terms of generally abiding by the site rules (not excessively spamming, not posting illegal links etc.) but in terms of how many threads there's certainly not a limit so long as they discuss different things (it may be that over time we have to create a couple of megathreads if a lot of threads keep getting made on the same topic, eg. what's your favourite anime?, but we can cross that bridge if we get to it).

    Ultimately the success of the trial of this forum will depend on how much you all get out of it, so please feel free to use it to the full.

    As expected, Index 2 didn't so much end insofar as to prepare us for a likely third season (whether we'll be given a spinoff, a la Railgun 2, or Index 3 remains to be seen). JC Staff really amped up the animation for this season as well, save for the occasional episode or two where there was a noticeable decline. Story wise, it was a bit subpar in that I never truly anticipated each episode. There just wasn't enough momentum and intrigue to maintain my interest. It was very much like a pendulum in this regard. I'll definitely watch the next instalment, assuming there is one, seeing as I've stuck with the series for three seasons.

    After watching a few episodes of Beelzebub, it gave me the craving to watch Daa! Daa! Daa!, so that's what I'm doing. :giggle:

    Talking of Beelzebub I feel I owe it an apology :mmm: At first I found it meh with the repetitive "baby upset, shock" but episodes 6-9 yesterday were quite entertaining.

    Plus it also helps that :teeth: was introduced with Aoi :awesome:

    Just finished Hourou Musuko, definitely deserved a full 5/5 IMO. Only four series left to go until I've finished the last two seasons' offerings, and it'll truly start feeling like Spring. Puella could be a while though...

    Yeah, same. Beelzebub didn't immediately grab me from the outset, so I decided to postpone it until yesterday. It's a lot of fun, and definitely remininsent of Daa! Daa! Daa!, except it's shounen with a demon baby, not shoujo with an alien baby. :giggle:

    Yeah, the Mashiba fight had plenty of buildup going into it given the character's prevalence, whereas Volg was introduced much later on when Ippo had become somewhat established as a professional boxer. I can't really remember the order of things as a result, but I'm assuming Ippo hasn't fought Sendou yet?

    Yeah, pretty much agree with this. I feel disappointed that the final two episodes seemed to drag all the momentum away from the penultimate arc, which was something spectacular. They also tried to cram an arc in to two episodes and it felt rushed, I felt like it needed one more episode to flow right. Otherwise it's definitely a good series which I look forward to more of - although I don't know whether I want another Railgun series before another Index series (even though I love both) now that Index has increased in awesomeness.

    Will finish off Fractale today, I think, and that's me done with the previous season I think...

    Agreed, the penultimate arc, especially that one episode, almost justified watching the whole season (I jest, somewhat). :tongue:

    What I liked the most from that arc and something I'd like to see should another season come about would be the overlapping of the magic and science worlds. They've remained relatively distinct with the latter rather ignorant that the other exists, or at least, most of the characters on the science side seem to be.

    As for the Winter season, there's a few that I've put on hold, namely Fractale, Hourou Musuko, Gosick and Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, all of which I'm intending to marathon through now that they've finished. With Bakuman and Star Driver finished (will relay my thoughts later), I should have enough time either today or next weekend to watch them.

    Edit: As for the current season, I've seen the first episode of Toriko... I don't really know what to say about this or whether I should be pleased or flabbergasted... This wasn't so much Toriko but rather a peculiar 'filler' episode of One Piece... The whole Strawhat crew were featured... Assuming the incentive was there, which seems highly plausible given the popularity of One Piece, it just seemed like the biggest form of a sellout that I've seen in anime.
