    I'm already posting my thoughts on the new season's episodes in the preview thread, but since it's so quiet here...

    Lance N' Masques was the first new show to get subbed, and despite having a fairly boring and low budget introductory episode (and an annoying name, I keep wanting to put the apostrophe before the N!), I'm picking it up because I still feel it has more potential than any of the other anime that failed to make my shortlist, based on synopses and trailers at least. Has anybody else watched this yet, and if so, what did you make of it?

    After a bit of a slump, I decided to binge watch Panty and Stocking. One of the funniest anime I've ever seen, and the dub is straight up fantastic.

    Yeah! One of the most hilariously crude anime I've watched.

    For some reason it reminds me of a Cartoon Network cartoon with the addition of tons of adult humour. Kinda nostalgic since I loved CN as a kid.

    Poor start from Heavy Object imo. I don't know what I was expecting but it certainly wasn't that.

    I watched the first ep and thought it was ok. It looks like one of the better animes for this season from the synopsis so I'm giving it a shot.

    What are everyone's thoughts on the first episode of One Punch Man? I thought it was pretty good, although it did feel a tad rushed. Still, it looks like it could turn out to be one of the better titles this season. Definitely the 'hype show' of 2015.

    I thought it was okay. I expected a lot more because of the hype around it, which has probably risen my expectations much higher than they should be.

    A good first episode, brilliant animation and my favourite OP theme so far this season, but I feel the whole one-hit KO gag could get old fast. I'm hoping and assuming there will be more to the series than that.

    Where do you guys usually watch anime? I've been more or less surviving on Crunchyroll, Netflix and Amazon blu rays.

    Amazon is pretty grim when it comes to box sets of series. Apart from the AAA category, everything else needs to be shipped from the US.

    Also, got round to watching Akame Ga Kill. Pretty disappointed all around because of how far off it is from the manga.
    Spoiler:

    Should rename the series Akame ga Kill Everyone Off. Gods sake. Killing off Tatsumi and Leone just felt like the studio wanted to keep being edgy.

    There's also Daisuki, it doesn't have a whole lot to watch but it's completely free (I think you need to create a free account to watch in 720p). It has some currently airing shows on there you can watch.

    Give it until episode 5 at least, that's where I think it gets really good.

    I wouldn't consider comedy to be Bebop's primary focus, but episode 17 is especially hilarious (at least I think it is).

    Thanks. I'll check it out.

    I'm a bit hesitant about using streaming sites.

    Apologies, I forgot to mention that Daisuki is an official and legal streaming site.

    Yeah I got that. I was referring to the slightly less than legal ones.

    Paranoid that I'll click on something by mistake and end up with a visit from the police.

    Your internet provider literally doesn't care about what you do unless you hit their cap (several tbs of downloads, for example) or download/distribute illegal content. Streaming anime isn't going to bring the police to your door.

    KissAnime is a pretty legit site and has practically anything you can think of (both sub and dub versions) if you want another streaming website.

    Not concerned about streaming anime itself. More by the ads on those sites which lead to some pretty dubious looking stuff which I'm paranoid about.

    If you followed them through and entered your details you might get spam at the most. Just accidentally clicking on ads isn't going to sign your life away lol. You can always use adblocking plugins too.

    KA's ads aren't intrusive and IIRC you can hide them if you're signed in.

    A new chapter of Berserk came out rather recently, if it hasn't already been mentioned here. Rickert gets a few badass moments in it, which is nice. Still need to get my Guts fix though, which probably won't be until next year at the rate the new chapters are coming out.
