  1. My introduction to anime was Star Blazers back in the 70s/80s. In addition to changing all the characters names to sound more western (Derek Wildstar, Nova Forrester, etc.), the most blatant change was renaming the ship from Yamato to Argo. In case you didn’t know, the Yamato was a WW2 Japanese battleship that was sunk by the US & a symbol of national pride to Japan (which made it kind of an odd choice anime to adapt into a kids’ cartoon in America). When the 2199/2202 remake movies were released in the US, they still called it Star Blazers for nostalgia purposes, but at least they used the Japanese names for the characters & ship. I remember reading about numerous other changes like the doctor drinking juice/soda/milk instead of booze, but it was fairly obvious what it actually was.
  2. I’m planning to give it a look as well.
  3. While I didn’t enjoy it as much as it’s related series Soul Eater, I am admittedly impatient to see how it ends (could always read the manga which has ended but, nah). As to when, no official announcements. Same thing as Tanya the Evil season 2 (announced in 2020, got a single OVA ep a year later and reassurance it was still go & then nothing). Sequels are just taking longer (just got Konosuba 3 this year, Tower God season 2 in July & no date for My Dress-up Darling 2). My understanding is the Studio who did Fire Force 1 & 2 was busy with Undead Unluck until recently, but no idea what their itinerary is going forward.
  4. CR started listing their summer roster (debuting July) https://www.crunchyroll.com/news/seasonal-lineup/2024/6/18/summer-2024-anime-crunchyroll Honestly not seeing much to be hype for. Will likely continue Reincarnated as a Slime, MHA & Dededede. Planning to watch 2nd seasons of Tower of God, The Cafe Terrace & it’s Goddesses, Oshi no Ko (though that’s Hidive). I’ll inevitably find some new seasonals, but planning to try to take care of some backlog series like the 2nd cour of the Ruroni Kenshin remake ahead of season 2 this fall, Catlevania: Nocturne & Scott Pilgrim. And still haven’t watched live action One Piece & Avatar:TLA
  5. A couple anime t-shirts (logo on the front, group shot on the back)
  6. My MAL profile page lists 20 of my all-time favorites, plus my 10 favorite anime movies. Also my favorite 10 from 2023 (will update with 2024 once June is over). https://myanimelist.net/profile/Ohayotaku
  7. I recently saw Castle in the Sky at the movies as part of Fathom Events’ Ghibli Fest. Like wise planning to go see When Marnie Was There for the first time in a couple weeks. Also watched My Oni Girl on Netflix, but it really didn’t hold my interest.
  8. ALL of the “Big 3” are overrated IMO. One Piece is actually the one with the greatest appeal for me as I watched up to around ep 150 before burning out & it is the only one I even remotely consider revisiting some day. The anime I’ve stayed with the longest is probably MHA (just watched ep 141) & frankly seasons 4&5 were disappointing & what got me interested again in season 6 was that it at least seemed to put the “End” in sight. It’s an rare series that can keep my interest for 100 episodes & most need far less. A satisfying conclusion can lead to an enduring legacy, conversely dragging things out to cash in on a pre-established fandom inevitably leads to embarrassment. And not just for anime (Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, The Simpsons, etc.)
  9. Welcome Hope you find things to interest you here & decide to stick around.
  10. @efaardvark ah, Vysache from Shangri La Frontier, the most badass bunny since Usagi Yojimbo. Clan leader and mystic blacksmith (the singing while forging was very Tolkein-esque)

  12. I put it on hold after episode 3 wrapped up a sorta mini-arc. I really want to like it, but seems slower than I’m currently in the mood for. May come back to it later.
  13. Watched the first 4 episodes of Astro Note & found it surprisingly enjoyable. The oddball cast of characters remind me of Rumiko Takahashi’s old-school romcoms. I find it particularly funny that the alien poodle has the same voice as Sukuna (JJK) And then there’s the dad who always wears a suit despite being unemployed & the violent idol singer wannabe
  14. Squirrels Since mongoose & ferrets apparently aren’t rodents
