    Thanks! I was wondering why I couldn't find it in search on AP
    The Japanese name is often used in Japan and Gineiden is a common abbreviation that I've come to know it by. :tongue:

    I watched episodes 15-19 of Tiger & Bunny last night. By far remains my favourite show of last season (unless I'm forgetting something :ahee: )

    The main character is just so likeable, if corny :fluffy:

    The only major thing is, considering the medium that I guess was the inspiration, there hasn't really been any truly major/cool/awesome bad guys to battle :nyoron:

    According to LOVEFiLM I still have discs at home, even though I sent them back before this weekend, so I'll likely have to pay for another month's membership tomorrow. :sigh: Admittedly I was cutting it close to the deadline again (same reason as before - I borrow DVDs I've already seen but want to rewatch with my sisters, only to have those same sisters disappear for a week), but even so judging by the amount of time it usually takes for discs to arrive back there and get processed, they should have been there on time. Still, if it weren't for my financial situation I'd have no complaints as the service is great.

    So this month I'll only borrow things with myself in mind so that I can hopefully watch and post them back the same day they arrive! Of course, renting with myself in mind means renting anime. :awesome: Mostly Manga Classics anime, such as Landlock and Amon Saga. Should be able to finish such titles in well under a month. :yes:

    I'm slowly acquiring that... by all accounts when I watch it I may need something nearby to hang on to, white-knuckled.

    I finished acquiring my copy and watched it this afternoon.

    It's definitely an action anime, about a no-holds-barred motor race across the surface of a militarised planet whose rulers don't want the race held there. It's ridiculously, ridiculously well-animated. Here's a trailer.

    I started Kemono no Souja Erin a couple of days ago, and am making quick progress with it (as a result, Lost Universe and my weekly series haven't been given much attention). I can't really put my finger on my reason for liking it so much, it just makes for really easy viewing. :yes:

    [edit] Might simply be due to its...

    Starting watching Usagi drop today (finally started the new season)

    Wondering two things, that I've noticed elsewhere in other anime and was curious about:

    1) Are beds that we're use to uncommon in Japan? Sometimes characters have "normal" beds, and other times they're sleeping on those things on the floor (futons?)

    2) I've also noticed that rooms/houses can quite often be pretty sparse in terms of decorations/furniture etc. Is that just because it's cheaper to animate, or is the clutter I'm use to in homes not common in Japan?

    Might need help from Aiko here :teehee:

    I posted a review for Amon Saga, and decided to make some much needed updates to the review thread while at it. Things like changing the link in the first post so that it doesn't send people to Cara's old ontopic thread, removing my request for suggestions for 'our monthly review list', and axing the largely abandoned A-P account (we have an index, people can Google any series they don't know :yawn:).

    I also stuck the index in expand tags; as much as I liked looking at the impressive two page list, I figured it would save people who're scrolling down the page a huge amount of time and effort (like, 5 extra seconds :zomg:). Looks tidier too, TBH. Will use the third post to list the most recent ~5 reviews. :yes:

    More news:

    (Original post by Kimi no Iru Machi Manga Gets Anime DVD Next Spring)

    This year's 39th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine is announcing next Wednesday that an original anime DVD of Kouji Seo's Kimi no Iru Machi manga has been green-lit for next spring. Yasuhiro Yoshiura (Time of Eve) is serving as chief director, while Hiroshi Kobayashi (Yozakura Quartet) is the director at Tatsunoko Productions. Momoko Murakami (Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream) is writing the script. Ryuusuke Chayama (Time of Eve) is designing the characters, and Akira Takata (Natsume Yūjin-Chō) is the chief animation director. Satoko Kimura (Yozakura Quartet) is the color key artist.
    (Original post by Kono Danshi, Uchū-jin to Tatakaemasu. Anime Launches)

    Auteur director Soubi Yamamoto is helming a new original anime DVD (OAD) project from CoMix Wave Films titled Kono Danshi, Uchū-jin to Tatakaemasu. (That Boy Can Fight the Aliens.) A website launched for the OAD on Friday.

    21-year-old Yamamoto was inspired to work in anime from watching Makoto Shinkai's 2002's Voices of a Distant Star when she was a 15-year-old in middle school. Not coincidentally, CoMix Wave Films released many of Shinkai's works.

    The anime's website describes Kono Danshi, Uchū-jin to Tatakaemasu. as a "pitiful and beautiful adolescent story." Aliens suddenly invade the world, and a boy named Kakashi stands alone with the power to fight back against the aliens — except he lost his memories.

    The anime stars Ryohei Kimura (Eden of the East, Natsume Yūjin-Chō) as Kakashi, Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, Durarara!!) as an anti-alien forces member named Arikawa, and Daisuke Hirakawa (Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo, School Days) as Arikawa's superior and Kakashi's guardian Shiro. The project features a theme song by Akiko Shikata (A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives, Umineko no Naku Koro ni), whom Yamamoto requested personally to work on the project. CoMix Wave Films will release the DVD in November.
    (Original post by One Piece Anime to Enter New World Arc on October 2)

    The October issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is confirming on Saturday that Toei Animation's One Piece pirate anime will enter the New World arc on Sunday, October 2. Eiichiro Oda's original manga had entered the new stage in the storyline last October after Oda took an unprecedented four-week break.
    (Original post by Zero no Tsukaima's Final Series Gets TV Anime in October)

    The wraparound jacket band on the second volume of Yukari Higa's Zero no Tsukaima Chevalier manga is announcing this month that the final series of the Zero no Tsukaima light novel franchise has a television anime green-lit. The new television anime is slated to premiere this October. The story follows a budding magician, nicknamed "Louise the Zero" due to her initial ineptness at magic, who accidentally summoned a boy from Earth as her familiar.
    (Original post by Milky Holmes Anime Gets 2nd Season in January 2012)

    The public relations department of the game company Bushiroad announced on Saturday that production on a second season of the Detective Opera Milky Holmes (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes) anime series has been green-lit. The second season will premiere on Tokyo MX and other television stations in January of 2012.

    The Milky Holmes television anime series and detective romance adventure game follow four budding female private eyes. The website Crunchyroll streamed the first anime season outside Japan as it aired last year. A television special was already green-lit for this summer.

    My thoughts exactly. I'm fine with the censorship of really extreme violence and gore, but does it have to take the form of weird beams of light/darkness, and cover up half the screen? :sigh:

    Talking of that, when did weird beams of light and black bars start to become the norm. Obviously some situations would not be workable, but good ol' censor steam seems to have vanished :teehee:

    Oh and I was just wondering...is it just me or since around the release of Queen's blade anime seems to have been far more risqué, with more fanservice anime seemingly having a lot more pervy stuff then older shows, at times bordering on pornographic? Just seems a bit odd to compare Love Hina or Negima or Tenchi Muyo to say Ladies vs Butlers or Queen's blade or that Manyuu show I've seen mentioned.

    Nowadays Ikkitousen seems pretty tame compared to some of the things being produced each season :teehee:
