Rock's a chess master. Even Balalaika recognized him for his skill at the end of S2, and if you're getting props from a master of the Russian mob and former VDV Colonel, you can rest assured you earned them.

It's what I love about Rock and Revy, both as a ship and just as a set of characters, the sheer amount of role reversal with Rock as the calm, collected brains of the operation, working off of intuition, feeling and thought while Revy is... well she's Revy, a natural disaster given human form and firearms. All emotion, all energy, all the time.

Alone Revy's just a block of C4, teamed up with Rock, they're a Claymore mine, a shaped, well timed and placed charge of C4 with a whole bunch of shrapnel embedded into it.

On a side note, Walkure Romanze is officially the most ridiculous thing I think I've ever watched in anime.

A romance anime based on an eroge game is your most ridiculous thing you ever watched?

Clearly you need to watch Excel Saga to understand ridiculous. One my favorite scenes is the anime's director pulling out 2 M16s from his afro.

Ooooh, nice one, FLCL is awesome. 6 episodes of pure undistilled ridiculous awesomeness.

Edit: Oh good heavens, how could have I forgotten this one:




In the year 300X, the entire world is under the tyrannical rule of the Maruhage Empire, and their ruler, Tsuru Tsurulina IV (Bald the 4th). His Hair Hunt troop captures innocent bystanders' hair, leaving the people bald and their villages in ruins. Standing against this evil regime is the heroic, but bizarre, rebel, Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo, who fights the Hair Hunt Troop with his powerful Hanage Shinken (Fist of the Nose Hair). His team consists of the normal teen girl Beauty, the smelly teen warrior Heppokomaru (Gasser) and the Hajike leader Don Patch (Poppa Rocks). Bo-bobo is on an exciting, gag-filled quest to deliver his own hairy brand of justice to evildoers everywhere.

Someone in here recommended Kill La Kill.

Pretty cool concept. Fanservice was gratuitous at times, but the story and idea is nifty.

My one concern is that they seem to be moving very quickly. Like the whole thing will end up 12 episodes and need no 2nd season.

It is made by the same people who also did Gurren Lagann, FLCL, and Panty and Stocking with Gainax before starting their own studio, Trigger. Also, this might provide a good insight what Imashi had in mind. Kinda feminist oriented, but still pretty insightful. http://i.imgur.com/DpG1VIk.jpg

No no you guys miss what I'm saying, the insanity in Bobo, Jojo, FLCL, etc, so forth all make sense... sorta... within their respective worlds. They are ridiculous in the good sense. Walkure Romanze is ridiculous in the "this is stupid" sense.

Bobobo now that brings back childhood memories. The fights were so ridiculous you almost couldn't call them fights. The synopsis is missing Jellyman though. He is damn funny alongside Don Patch.

Interesting. I hadn't really analyzed the show for deeper meanings (I tend to avoid doing that ever since I tried to figure out Evangelion a few years back.....) and just sort of watch to enjoy. Taking what that link posits into account, it does make sense somewhat, and will make viewing the remaining episodes more interesting.

I also need to go back and finish watching Gurren Lagann, and rewatch FLCL.

Also, I need to find that FLCL theme in my music library again. I have it from waaaaayyyyy back in the day, and that thing was how I got out of bed in the morning.

Eh, seriously? I kinda like it. The innuendo jokes in the previous episode (episode 2) were so bad they made me *facepalm* with extra power but overall I enjoy it. Mio seems a nice enough character (if a bit cliché).

As I reach the middle of Mirai Nikki I seriously have no idea what's gonna happen anymore. It just threw me a curve-ball of awesome and I really recommend this one if you don't mind some serious psychotic characters.

I know some of FLCL's songs were done by a Japanese rock group called the Pillows. That might help.

I guess that is what happens when you give gak sentience and a human-like avatar. I gives a whole new meaning to her wanting him inside of her.

Sad part is I'm kinda jealous. I'd love a girlfriend with 5" main gun and a VLS system. Especially Takao's extremely... augmented VLS system. Hello missile spam!

Edit:

Thought, now I want to write an anime about a blender at a bar that gains sentience and a human like avatar then falls in love with the bartender because he can use her better then she can use herself.

Watched ep.3 of Ars Nova. That battleship was definitely getting hot over the thought of the protagonist captaining her. Iona had a couple cute moments in the ep. Next week though is going to be some epic ship combat I hope.

Finished Mirai Nikki. I was really loving this but after a certain point I feel it just went downhill, full speed, until a massive crash and explosion, but I'm certain I'm in the minority here.

Big Spoiler:
Spoiler:
At least 9th got an happy ending. When your favorite character is a crazy terrorist and you want to see her "win", you know you are watching something fethed up. Yet, 9th is awesome.

Oh man, did I hate this week's episode D: . Such a massive build-up and then a "To be continued" Bastards don't even show a sneak peek of next week's episode to boot.

The Patlabor OVA is getting (re?)released in the UK soon, I preordered that as that's one I always wanted to see but never got round to.

Hopefully the series will be out sometime as well.

Is Kanuka in the OVAs?

Wonder how long until the guy in Machine Doll is given the other girls. He mentioned before his trained is in group tactics, the doll maker said Yaya was part of a trio, and then we've seen all three dolls in the closing credits.

Also, I was surprised by the nudity in this last episode. It's usually more subtle or creativly censured, and this one was just "hey, boobs!"
