  1. Sorcerer Hunters? Spice & Wolf? Here's mine: A secret organization tries to kill a guy for putting bananas in a microwave
  2. I just finished the 3 episode OVA for Hi Score Girl. The note it ended one was much more satisfying than the main series. Actually looking forward to season 2 more now..

    Dogs have always been a big part of my life, especially growing up. Back on the farm it wasn't unusual to have 4 of them at a time. While they were all family dogs, each one seemed to bond with a particular "hooman" in the family. Some were rescue dogs, but a lot of them were just strays that no one claimed. Currently I only have the one yellow lab. She just turned 12 recently and unfortunately has started having health problems. Primarily a lack of mobility.
  4. I'm Rooster apparently (had to look it up). Unfortunatley(?) the personality description sounds pretty much like my polar opposite :lol:

    I'd like to get back into One Piece someday too (I previously left off somewhere during the Skypiea arc). Unfortunately those mega series are pretty intimidating ( I generally prefer something more finite :P)

    I actually do have a desire to go back & rewatch some of the titles from when I was first really getting into anime to see if my impression of them has change over time & as my experience became more diverse. Same with titles where I'd previously only seen the dubbed version. Unfortunately my current obsession is currently airing series. I largely blame this on the fact that I've only recently (a couple years) entered the wonderful world of streaming content (previously I'd lived in a rural area where the internet connection made streaming unusable). Being able to view series more or less as they air is something new to me, and even though I'm sure the novelty will wear off eventually, I have a rather substantial backlog/bucket list of older titles I've never seen or completed. It's truly wonderful how diverse anime can be, but also frustrating that there is only so much time that can be devoted to it. If the day ever comes that I retire I have a couple hundred titles on disc I can watch at my leisure (started buying them back in the late 90's early 2000's after all :lol: Monster is actually one of those bucket list titles for me. I started watching/recording it when it was on cable (Syfy or Chiller) and got pretty far into it (somewhere around the Magnificent Steiner part). But then there was a power outage one week and I missed an episode. Happened a couple other times due to technical difficulties, so I decided I would just wait until they started re-airing episodes, but they wound up cancelling it. So I never got to finish 😭
  7. I believe that Mine manipulated him at first , but it's become a matter of personal pride now and he probably won't be satisfied now until he get's some sort of "revenge". Even if he realized he's being used, admitting to it is harder for him than just continuing to believe the lie and blame Naofumi for anything bad that happens. And I’m sure Mine is reinforcing it with flattery and telling him what he wants to hear.
  8. They just don't want to accept that he's actually stronger than them even though by their reasoning he should be the weakest (to be fair I expected them to be freaked out and more than a little scared the first time they saw him in rage mode). Sword Hero appears to be a bit more open minded than the others but still kind of skeptical. Bow Hero just seems stubborn and not wanting to back down. Spear Hero though has developed a personal grudge against Naofumi and just keeps getting more resentful the more Naofumi succeeds (I have a feeling it's going to take him down a very dark path).
  9. Hi Score Girl gets a second season in October. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-03-21/hi-score-girl-anime-gets-2nd-season-in-october/.144800 Of course, if Netflix follows the usual pattern we won't get it in the US until 2020 at the earliest. Edit: Surprised to see that Netflix just added the OVA episodes (13 - 15)
  10. Maybe Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online and Btooom! For similarities to Mirai Nikki, maybe Eden of the East or C Control
  11. Let the madness begin


  12. Oh yeah, I forgot about that The other heroes seem to think his curse/rage abilities are some sort of hack or cheat. And the slave trader commented on how his business was booming because people keep hoping to replicate the success Naofumi's had with Filo & Raphtalia. I'm afraid that this reputation of being a "cheater" is going to stick and keep him from the respect/gratitude he's due for most people. As for the real reasons, just have to keep watching and see I guess.
  13. Wonder if you might mistakenly be thinking of Rory Mercury from Gate
  14. I think a lot of people were expecting it to be edgier and darker. Personally, I don’t mind that it’s not all bitterness and betrayal. I actually have a bit of trouble seeing it as a harem, I mean Goblinslayer had more ladies interested in him (Cowgirl, Priestess, High Elf, Guild Girl, Sword Maiden) :lol:
  15. It has it’s enjoyable elements, but can be frustrating as well. The biggest probelm I have is it makes it way too easy for the MC to overcome whatever obstacles he’s facing. And the final arc was too rushed, even though it seems like it’s pivotal in what happens next. If you watch through the end of episode 14 you saw the best of it IMO (and I actually was satisfied with how they wrapped up the Orc Lord arc). The rest of it largely seemed like unrealized potential. I’d give it a 7 out of 10. If you’re looking for a fantasy isekai, I think Shield Hero is more engaging, though it has it’s shortcomings as well.
  16. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-03-17/that-time-i-got-reincarnated-as-a-slime-tv-anime-gets-2nd-season/.144657 Not really a surprise it's getting a second season. Personally, I hope they start out with maybe trying to elaborate more on the first season's final arc (Shizue's students) because it felt really rushed.
  17. I went back and rewatched the first 3 episodes of the current Gegege no Kitaro series since it looks like the Nanashi/Mana storyline is reaching it's climax after the past year. I didn't realize (or forgot) that it was Neko-musume (Cat-chick) who told Mana how to contact Kitaro.
  18. Only the first one, not the sequel(s). I would probably need to rewatch it since it’s been awhile. How about ‘What Dreams May Come’ and ‘The Lovely Bones’?
  19. MHA is confirmed for season 4 in October. Shield Hero season 1 is listed for 25 episodes so it will continue until the end of June. Who knows how far along in the story it will be by then.
  20. One more: Live Action Adaptions that: rely heavily on CGI and have performers who seem less talented than the VAs and look less like the characters than your average cosplayer. I really do wonder what the point is (and I’m not even referring to attempts to adapt it to an american audience)
  21. 1) Titles keep getting longer and more awkward sounding, usually necessitating some sort of abbreviation to refer to them (Konosuba, Watamote, Danmachi, etc.) 2) The recent glut of isekai and OPMC titles. Related to that, copying story elements even when it doesn’t make sense to do so. For example: being able to pull up a status screen makes sense in series like Hack, SAO & Overlord where the MC is trapped in a game or VR. But it doesn’t really seem to fit in series like Shield Hero where it was a book or Reincarnated as a Slime where he’s murdered (Great Sage sounds and acts exaclty like some sort of game tutorial)
  22. Beautiful Bones definitely needed a continuation since it was revealed there was a “mastermind” behind several of the cases just before it ended. I would also like to see Princess Resurrection & Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero be continued. Finally, I’ve mentioned this before, but Battle Angel Alita definitely deserved more than the 2 episode OVA it got.

  24. So, waaay back in December I tried to order something through Funimation’s online store but kept getting error messages. I emailed them about it and got a generic ‘we’re aware of the problem and working on a solution’ response. Today I get an email saying they’ve fixed the problem. Nice to know, but needless to say I’d conpletely forgotten about it :lol:

      Hopefully, it arrives. I never ordered anything from FUNimation’s store. I always ordered from either Amazon or Rightstuf.

    3. Ohiotaku


      They said I would have to re-order but they would match the sales price from when I tried to place the order earlier. But I’ve already got it somewhere else. Price is usually the biggest factor in where I order from.

      Kind of a weird sidenote: a couple times I’ve ordered things from Sentai’s website, but the package arrived with Rightstuf listed as the shipper :huh:

      Could have happened because Rightstuf is used to fulfill the order, which is something not new.
