    School Rumble
    I've already watched that a year or two back! Had to double check it was on my list, but of course it is, my list is obsessively compulsively kept up to date.

    A lot of the others definitely fall into the category of 'should have seen, but haven't', so I'll add Infinite Ryvius for now, and might come back to this list later.

    Actually one of my resolutions this year is to watch more completed stuff I may have missed out on - any recs are welcome (I already have plans to start LOGH which is the major glaring omission from my list).
    LOGH is amazing. :yes: And here's some recs in return:

    Ah I came across the sequels and thought you hadn't seen any of School Rumble - whoops.

    Ah cheers, I have Lodoss, Ergo Proxy, Denno Coil & Speed Grapher downloaded & ready to go - will keep the others in mind too!

    I watched Patema Inverted last week. Was a little let down, I was hoping for something with more wonder like Laputa. I kinda feel it would have been better served as an OVA or 13 episode series.


    Also by the end I had no idea which of the four surfaces explored was Earth, if any of them indeed were :nyoron:

    9 months of anime GET! And on the usual day, too, even if it was a bit forced this time - it took two months of rewatching old shows so as not to add to my life spent on anime, and removing things from my stalled list whenever my weekly series took me too close. :p: Both were things I've wanted to do for a while though, my OCD just gave me a decent excuse. :p:

    I'll likely be watching that tonight, hopefully it won't disappoint me after I went for Anime Limited's Collector's Edition. :puppyeyes:

    This!
    Just watched Anoko ni 1000%... a cute (if very, very predictable) short OVA. Not much more to say about it, really.

    Currently on episode 7, and it's an incredibly enjoyable anime so far! I can easily see it becoming one of my all time favourites. My server messed up transcoding the subtitles, so I did something I don't usually do with anime, and watched it with the English dub. Wow, they did a great job on the dubbing, something I never thought I'd say! :eek:
    Haha You're right about that! I watched it in dub too and I thought it was completely natural

    It's ok :nyoron:

    On the subject of pricey collections I'm hoping Kill la kill gets a blu ray box set, it'd be about £150 for the blu ray sets :puppyeyes:

    Does anyone know if there is any info on when the next season of No Game no Life is coming out? I have been really wanting to watch more of it lately. Well that and Knights of Sidonia but again am I waiting on the next season of that.

    Also does anyone know any decent anime that can be watched online through legal methods? May sound strangely specific but I like to watch anime during break at work. Their fine with people watching stuff online but don't like people using dodgy sites for them. Genre wise anything is good as long as it's safe for work. I have been looking round but I am always bad at judging stuff from summaries

    Log Horizon is on Crunchyroll & I really enjoyed it. It's set in an MMORPG but is really smart & entertaining and uses the dynamics of video games really well.

    Crunchyroll has Kaiji, a gambling show which you might well enjoy if you liked the game aspect of NGNL. It comes in two seasons around 26 episodes each (the first season is the one CR lists as 'Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor'), so there's plenty of it to enjoy if you do like it. It's very tense and has a deliberate and unusual stylised set of character designs. There's no fanservice and not tonnes of gore though there are occasional moments of violence.

    There's been no news of a No Game No Life anime sequel that I'm aware of, though I have heard that the first series covered pretty much all of the material from the original light novels so far. So while it's virtually guaranteed to get a continuation due to its popularity, it might not be for a while, until the novels are far enough ahead.

    The sequel for Knights of Sidonia airs next season (starting in April) though, in case you weren't already aware.

    Just had a look through everything that's on Crunchyroll for the UK, and I'd recommend any of the following:

    Hunter x Hunter
    Hitsugi no Chaika
    Hoozuki no Reitetsu
    Space Brothers
    Gatchaman Crowds
    Durarara!!
    Zetsuen no Tempest
    Chihayafuru

    I'm very slowly making my way through some anime!

    Watched episodes 5-7 of 'The Devil is a part timer' having probably watched 1-4 of the DVD before Christmas. As I've said before, especially the last few years, my attention span for subtitled stuff is less than English stuff.


    Of course I also have a huge backlog of games, and I've been more into that lately so after about three episodes I start thinking about games.

    Finally, I can start chasing Parz1val for feedback. :evil: Feedback besides 'I've seen those two already!', that is. :p:

    As for the identities of your Secret Santas, I asked for series from Caraniel and Parz1val - both suggested Durarara!!, so I asked them for another; Cara gave you Honey & Clover, and Parz1val gave you Katanagatari.

    Sounds pretty cool. Gore wise that's fine to watch in work. My work place is a bit more relaxed with things we watch or play during work. Basically as long as it can't be mistaken for porn or something then it's fine :laugh:

    I have actually been watching Hunter x Hunter though I kind of stopped after the end of the Ant King arc. I kind of marathoned it while I was off ill. This though didn't go so well as staring at a screen all day cooked my head a bit haha. So I haven't gone back to it for a bit. I want to but I keep getting distracted by other things. But if it's on crucnhy think I will give it another look I originally watched it on netflix but they didn't have the last few seasons on there.

    I have been meaning to watch Durarara for ages now I am def giving that a look.

    Lastly random but I saw someone mention Red Line in a post above. God I love that film, it's so damn pretty.

    I intended to, that's why I only asked two helpers, I thought I'd be suggesting the third. But when they both put forward Durarara!! (which is amazing), and their other two choices were very good as well, I felt I wouldn't be able to do any better.

    Oh you'll be fine with Kaiji then, as far as fanservice goes it's one of the cleanest titles out there -- not because it's prudish, but because it's 100% Tense Games of Death and/or Serious Injury.

    And yeah, Redline is great stuff. I try to watch it at least once every year.
