It's a good thing I saved everything before the deletion... XD

C'mon! Every message needs one of these. It's a law or something. ...In Texas, I think.

So, is anyone else watching Eureka 7? It's nice to finally know what the deal is with the Gekko State but I wish they get around to explaining what "the war" is and who else is involved aside from the government.

BTW... I posted this in the old thread but with all that's going on, it might've been missed:

The Gainax classic, Gunbuster. Pray it makes it to DVD before the next century! XD

Just for funsies to start with:

And the OAV itself:

And hopefully 5 and 6 will turn up soon.

And even though these shows aren't up on Youtube though I wish they were... Here are some openings whose themes are quite catchy! XD

Can you TELL I recently discovered YouTube?

And I won't pretend anyone will get or understand this one, but -I- think it's great! Brings back fond child hood memories! XD

I've just recently gotten into Bleach, and so far I absolutly love it! I suppose it had good timeing, considering I've been somewhat burnt out on anime for quite sometime and been to lazy to get it myself and stuck to what Adult Swim has shown me.

I'll snag a quick description from Wikipedia;


QUOTE
Bleach follows the life of Ichigo Kurosaki, a 15 year old high school student with the ability to see ghosts; and a shinigami (lit. god of death), or Soul Reaper in the English manga, named Rukia Kuchiki, who runs into him one day while searching for a hollow (an evil spirit). During the ensuing confrontation with the spirit, she is wounded and forced to transfer all of her powers into Ichigo. Thus the adventures of Ichigo and Rukia begin. Together they search for hollows and perform soul burials on wayward souls, cleansing the spirits and sending them to Soul Society.

The early parts of the story focus mainly on the relationships between the characters, rather than the actual occupation of the shinigami. However, as events unfold, the story begins to delve deeper into the world of these gods of death on the "other side" called Soul Society.



So far the story is quite good, the animation and style are fantastic (I love the design of the Hollows and Hell), and the characters are great (Liking Chad, Kon, and of course the foul mouthed, short tempered, Ichigo).

So yea, give it a shot.

-EP

Bleach is awesome. One of the best, typical Shonen-style anime. It is pretty cool, and I would definitly reccomend it. Also, they are bringing it to Adult Swim in September.

Shroom

Thank the Chozo! I was afraid it would be basterized like Naruto or One Piece was.

*Shroom shivers in fear as he remembers the One Piece opening rap

-Red

Dang it... Now I have to re-write the synopsis for last week's Eureka 7... >_<

Okay... In a nut shell... You missed Talho's naked ass, Talho flying the Gekko to an abandoned military base so she can remind Holland how they had planned to leave the military together as he continues to whine and run away from what happened in Ciudades Del Cielo, Renton continues to pine away for Eureka and gets nowhere, as usual, and that white haired guy that was let out of prison begins to suspect the true identity of the Gekko State (as being a certain Special Forces Squad) and pays a visit to a bloody nosed little girl with pink hair who bears an interesting resemblance to Eureka.

:Bleach

Heh. Sounds a bit like Yu Yu Hakusho. I never did finish watching that one... Cartoon Network certainly didn't help moving it around the schedule and delaying it like they did. Well, I'll look forward to it this September then.

Did I miss anything? XD I'll repost the other stuff from last night later... Busy now.

---------

Okay... And now for the stuff I had posted earlier before the first shake up on the boards:

Mazinger Z Vs. Devil Man

And be warned... The subtitles on these suuuuuuuuuuck...

First TV Opening
Part 1 - Lead in with Z no TEMA (Z Theme)
Part 2 - Dr. Hell is up to no good
Part 3 - Devil Man to the rescue!
Part 4 - Lab under attack
Part 5 - End credits with... The Jet Scrander theme! XD I love this song!

Mazinger Z Vs. The Dark General

More bad subtitles... But it's either that no subtitles... ^^;;;;

Second TV Opening
Part 1 - Again with the Jet Scrander theme... And kid's drawings... Like the Gekiganger OAV
Part 2 - Z no TEMA again.
Part 3 - Family drama... ^^;;;
Part 4 - Even when he knows he's being irrational, that can't stop Kouji! XD
Part 5 - One day, Tetsuya, Kouji will return the favor... With Mazinkaiser! XD

The Great Mazinger Opening just for fun

And that's all I got... :P We now resume your standard anime thread already in progress...

Yeah, Bleach fucking owns. The filler arc is actually good unlike that crap they keep showing on Naruto. I can't wait 'till the filler for that anime ends and we get some good shows again. At least the Naruto manga owns, I can't wait to see what happens. They only give you little nibbles though :P.

Well, you certain have a high opinion of it. Many people do, it would seem. I'd ask for more information but I don't want to spoil myself before it airs. I've been feeling pretty depressed lately about anime and manga in general though discovering YouTube has certainly made me giddier in the past couple weeks about anime than I've been in a long, long time. ^^

I'm not sure what to think of Naruto, though... My fiancee watches the show and reads the manga and thinks it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. I'll admit I haven't seen more than a few minutes of the show and I haven't really read much of the manga but... I dunno... I look at it... And... I don't get it... ^^;;; I've read about maybe half of the first chapter and not of my own volition either and ... I dunno... Naruto seems ... I don't want to offend anyone... How can I say this nicely...? He's... Obnoxious...? ^^;;;;; I guess that's as nice as I can put it. :\

I will say this... Filler.... Sucks! XD I wonder who's the all time filler champion? DBZ or Inuyasha? XD

Naruto is amazing during the "real" part (especially past the setting up of the story), but TERRIBLE during filler. It has a really cool story about bonds.

EP, I totally agree. I've been a fan of the show for about 3 years now. I finally caught to the anime about the half way point of season 3 [the tail end of the Chuunin exams]. I really can't wait till the show picks back up where the manga left off, because there are a handful of major fights I'm dying to see animated.

I've been watching Bleach since nearly the launch of the series and I love it. You are right, the Bountu filler is exceptional. I care about the characters, which is bizarre. They wrote this well. I've been meaning to read the manga but have never gotten around it.

I've started downloading a 24 episode series called Fate/Stay Night. Terrible name, cool show. [and it's in HD, so on my new widescreen monitor, it looks exceptional ;)].

Some other shows you all need to check out that I own:

Last Exile [One cannot explain the premise in one sentence, just check it out and immerse yourself]

Azumanga Daioh! [The Seinfeld of Japan, centered around Japanese high school girls. And NO, this does not some trashy ecchi show. There's barely any at all. It's a family show, but bizarre and freakin' hilarious in it's own right. Just check it out and don't let the opening titles scare you. It's girly, but the appeal goes beyond gender. Soooo funny.

Azumanga Diaoh was okay. Kinda cute if you're into looking at high school girls in school uniforms :huh:

I used to watch what is considered old school anime (at least that's what I've been told). One of my firsts was Robotech from like the 1980's. When I was in high school I watched Ramna 1/2 and thought it was pretty funny. I then watched a lot of Rumiko Takashi's stuff like Maison Ikkukou and Inu-Yasha (but only briefly). My favorites were Please Save My Earth and Escaflowne.

As of recent I haven't gotten into much. Naruto seems to much like Ramna from what I've seen and the stuff on AS doesn't do it for me. Most of what I know now comes from briefly working at an Anime store.
