I want to re-watch Record of the Lodoss War but I do not own a VHS player anymore


That was such a fun series. Very much like an anime adaptation of D&D and i hear that was actually the intention or what was done.

Does anybody have good recommendations for anime?

I didn't complete finish watching 'monster' but i liked what i saw. I have also been liking 'parasyte: the maxim' which can't release enough episodes to satisfy me.

I'm only halfway done with 'monster' and should probably go back to it. Berserk is another good sounding anime but i'd rather have more episodes or a new series (think i heard there was a few movies or a new show coming for it). Honestly berserk seems almost never updated and it seems to be taking forever.

So i dunno possibly a psychological/philosophical mind-f**k of an anime would be good. I hear there's quite a few of those and i never really finished evangelion either. I'd prefer to watch a show with less big robots and pre-teens or harem girls. I like harem girls as they're hot but it's a clear sign the story was put on the back-burner. Though it is a harem 'freezing' seemed messed up but at times needlessly cruel as if people are even sh*ttier than normal (which is a feat i must admit). Gotta admit though 'freezing' knows how to draw attractive women if nothing else.


Ergo Proxy. Welcome to mind-feth central, with no mechs, teens (there's no pre-teens in Evangelion, ffs, learn your facts!) or harem (if you consider Evangelion an harem, I'm b+tch slapping you ) and the only anime I had to double check more than once I was watching the right ep and I didn't skip any because of how different the end of the previous and the start of the next was.

Now very very quickly watch eps 13 and 14. You can avoid the 5 stages of grief. I was unfortunate enough to watch it as it aired........ then proceeded to wait ...all...the...months... to find out what happened next.

Spoiler:

I had probably watched the final scene of 12 about a dozen times trying to gauge bullet location, splatter trajectory from the wound, and the approximate origin of the blood pool. Before the new season had started, I had convinced myself Inaho was shot in the eye and still alive..... and that he would probably have aldnoah power. Those cliffhangers get to ya.

So I'm watching Chaos Head, Servant X Service, and that one with the overlong title that translates into roughly: "No matter what, it's your fault I'm not popular" all at the same time. Because anime night is wierd on my street.

Anyway, I'm digging Servant X Service and the really long title one, but Chaos Head? Man, I'm hating that. I hate literally *all* of the characters (which hasn't happened since Evangellion) and the only reason I'm still watching it is because the show started with a flash-forward of the main character being impaled on an impossibly huge sword and I want to see that happen again, because I hate that guy so very, very much.

I recently finished watching Dusk Maiden of Amnesia and I'm surprised how much I loved it. It's a serious mood-whiplash anime, in that it goes from goofy comedy, to romantic comedy, to mystery, to horror, to tragedy, right back to goofy comedy. Normally I don't like shows/movies that can't figure out what they want their tone to be, but for some reason I really dug this one.

Also, if you guys haven't seen it, check out I Can't Understand a Word My Husband Says. It's a series of 5-minute shorts about a married couple, one of whom is a shameless otaku. The first season just ended, but we have been promised a new season in the spring.

Fun fact: Chaos;Head is from the same guys that did the Steins;Gate and my main reason for wanting to watch it; but I have only managed the first 3 eps... It wasn't as enjoyable as S;G, that's for sure, It's pretty strange and somewhat mind-feth too. And I agree with the MC hate too. And I've never really understood wtf is going on with the anime girl that's giving him advices: Split personality? Spirits? Hallucinations? I really have to try and endure it and finish it.

I just started reading a manga called Freezing. It's the strangest mix between Claymore, Evangelion, and Ikki Tousen. Not bad. Although it has some mildly disturbing familial relationships.

Oh yeah absolutely like how satellizer has a step brother that sexually abused her. Just gonna say she meets up with him later on in the story.

Also i don't know why but for whatever reason people seemed to be ridiculously cruel in the anime at least which was slightly different than the manga. The anime is infinitely more ecchi with breast nudity with women being ridiculously common as if the first thing to get torn off is always the shirt surrounding the boobs.

The show is a rather curious thing because on one end you have a hot harem but sometimes it takes away from the story which totally actually exists in the manga at least. Also you have to admit whoever draws women for freezing knows how to draw the most spectacularly stunning and attractive women. There's a couple mangas with that level of detail in art but usually without any decent story to back it up.

I have to say the romantic progression of the story is a little annoying. You can tell satellizer and the main guy want to tap each other so hard but it's taking forever for stuff to happen. I read tidbits of the manga and they seemed to at least let each other know how they felt about each other and that they both want to bang like rabbits.

----------

Today i'm curious about an anime called 'phantom' or 'phantom: requiem for phantom'. It's about some female assassin and a main male protagonist who are destined to bang i guess. I don't know the actual story but something tells me that happens esp. with the semi nude poster of the couple on it's preview. The story seems to radiate a tragic story which is rather sad as i don't like to see people that 'love' each other (want to get it on because of story reasons or attractiveness) get killed off. Then again i dunno maybe they do love each other.

I love Higurashi, funniest is I watched it after Rozen Maiden, and the two share a lot of the same voice actors (the dub, I seldom watch subs, except with Fist of the North Star...because no one can "atatatata" like it's original VA)

Yes, though I still prefer the dub, I prefer dubs... often it really makes the show just that much better (Hetalia doesn't work without the dub, because the dub, being english, captures their accents and whatnot a lot better, that and... western people seem to understand stereotyping better then the Japanese, I donno...)


Fun fact Rozen Maiden was the anime that lead to my knowledge of Ball Jointed Dolls (that's what they are in the show) and I have 17 of the bastards.
I think there's a new series out but I've not seen it yet. Looks good.
