  1. For something similar to Seven Deadly Sins, I would recommend Akame ga Kill. A word of warning, even though it has some humorous elements, it can also be extremely violent & dark, but since you said you were looking for adult themes as well I think you might like it. For something lighter but still with some serious story elements, try Soul Eater (not Soul Eater NOT) Finally, one of the "classic" series that fit the humorous fantasy genre is The Slayers. Although there is a greater emphasis on comedy which is frequently goofy or slap stick, each season does have a serious big story/villain that becomes the focus as it goes on. One more I’ll mention in case you haven’t seen it is Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. Although it is mostly serious, it also has some funny moments and characterizations (I have to believe that 7 Deadly Sins’ Escanor is related to FMAB’s Armstrong lol)
  2. Purple is definitely the sexiest hair color courtesy of of Majo (Witch) from Goblin Slayer & Shion from Reincarnated as a Slime 😍

  3. And their tongue in cheek lyrics remind me of Barenaked Ladies (personally I thought FoW’s were funnier & more clever on that CD anyway)
  4. ^ You’ve seriously been raiding my music collection I own that CD as well (and love the variety of different musical styles they explored)
  5. ^ Love that song (and also Come Back to Texas from the same CD. “There’s nothing wrong with Ohio, except the snow and the rain” lol )
  6. Probably Chrono Trigger The Fire Emblem series is right up there as well. Particularly the 2 that were released for the GBA & Shadows of Valentia
  7. Genesis/Sega CD Sega Saturn Sega Dreamcast Sony PS1 Sony PS2 X-Box 360 I had a SNES but it went MIA when I loaned it to my sister when she went off too college (didn't have that many games for it anyway) Nintendo Game Cube with Game Boy Player attachment Nintendo New 2DS XL The only one I play with any frequency anymore is the 2DS, as the others are kind of a hassle having to be hooked up to a tv and switch between multiple devices. As you can see I haven't bought a new system in quite awhile. I really don't care for most "modern" games. However, I have been wanting to buy a Nintendo Switch, but have been waiting to try & get a good deal. I don't have all that much time for gaming anymore anyway. The most recent games I've played were Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia & Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (a Castlevania 3 tribute of sorts) for the 2DS
  8. I actually think Ila (my anime waifu) would be a good parent. She's very supportive, while at the same time not such a push-over that she won't tell you if you're acting like a jackass (Louie is quite the man-child himself afterall). She's not the sort to go gallivanting off on an adventure, as she realizes that's not where her strength lies, choosing instead to contribute with her intelligence (both book-smart & business savvy). She will get involved directly if that's what the situation requires, but isn't ashamed to ask for help when she needs it. And she would probably emphasize the importance of a good education to her kids. The only possible negative I can think of is there is an episode where she engages in a drinking contest, but that was for Louie's benefit and she gives a good accounting of herself (until the next morning anyway :P)
  9. Monthly Girl’s Nozaki-kun Blend S Fruits Basket As Miss Beelzebub Likes It Phantom in the Twilight (if you don’t mind something more story focused)
  10. animals that hibernate through the winter are definitely on to something -_-zzz

  11. Better than a 6 a.m. Monday, not as good as a 6 p.m. Friday
  12. my face when people say they like snow


    1. Beocat


      I know! Right? 


      It started snowing here today and my coworkers were all Merry Winter!  I'm all like "brrrrrrrrr, the icy hand of death has arrived".

    Need some recs

    Maybe try Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans There's also an older series called Patlabor & She, the Ultimate Weapon (Saikano) on HiDive
  14. Looking into the mirror each morning, my general response is "oh, it's you again"
  15. With the year starting to wind down, what were some of your favorite series? For me: A Place Further than the Universe - a group of Japanese high school girls accompany an expedition to Antarctica. Managed to be funny, heartfelt & encouraging all at the same time. Yuru Camp - SoL series about girls camping in the fall & winter featuring some beautiful scenery from actual locations. Just sit back and smile from OP through ED Megalobox - entertaining underdog story with a vibe similar to Cowboy Bebop, Samuari Champloo and Michiko & Hatchin. Manages to tell it's whole story in a single season Golden Kamuy - treasure hunt adventure filled with violence, deception & a cast of "unique" individuals Planet With - a quirky sci fi adventure with some philosophical musings that tells it's story in a single season Asobi Asobase - the antithesis of the Cute-Girls-Doing-Cute-Things genre. Made me laugh harder and more often than I have in a long time, making me realize I'm not as mature or decent as I like to think Hinomaru Sumo - setting aside the "do you like gladiator movies" bias, an intense sports shonen series with genuinely likable characters Zombie Land Saga - definitely one of the more oddball idol and comedy series out there (think Excel Saga style humor) but still manages to get you emotionally invested in the characters
  16. Up till a couple years ago, my anime viewing was largely of older series because I didn't have an internet connection that could handle streaming and blind buying series on disc was too expensive. Currently it's not unusual for me to try to follow 10 - 12 series as they air, but as a result I have a rather sizable backlog of older series that I would still like to watch as well as some older titles that I've only watched the dub for and would like to check out the original version or rewatch just to see what I think of them now that I'm a bit more varied in what I've seen. Ideally I would like to strike a better balance between the new & the old.
  17. Growing up Hana Barbera was the dominant force in television cartoons as well as stuff like Tom & Jerry, Loony Tunes, Popeye, Rocky & Bullwinke, Groovy Ghoulies, Underdog, Tennessee Tuxedo, Pink Panther, etc. Later there was stuff like Thundercats, Silver Hawks, G I Joe, Transformers.
  18. Granted I've watched more than 20 new anime series this year, but only about a dozen of them stand out as something special & a number of them were Funimation licenses. Then you look at some of the most anticipated series of the coming year (the new Fruits Basket series, One Punch Man season 2, Mob Psycho season 2, A Certain Scientific Railgun season 3) plus potential new seasons of My Hero Academia & Attack on Titan which are Funimation licenses. Add that to a couple hundred anime series that were already on Hulu when I was a subscriber a couple years ago, and there's potential there for them to become a real factor. And then there's this comment from the article: I don't plan on cancelling my CR premium membership & signing back up with Hulu anytime soon, but I'm definitely interested to see which titles wind up on which sites in the coming year. Hopefully CR can at least pick up some of Sentai's new series.
  19. I haven't been watching a lot cartoon series lately as most of the ones I have some interest in (Steven Universe, Miraculous Ladybug) are currently on hiatus. However, October thru December is the time when I get nostalgic for a lot of the animated holiday specials (Charlie Brown, Garfield, The Grinch, Rudolph). Also there are a number of animated movies that have a seasonal feel to them as well (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Paranorman, The 1977 version of The Hobbit ). And within the past month I checked out a couple Disney/Pixar sequels (Wreck-it Ralph 2, Incredibles 2).
  20. So after ending their partnership with CrunchyRoll, it looks like Funimation is making a deal with Hulu who apparently intend to add 20+ new anime series in the coming year https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2018-12-04/funimation-hulu-sign-first-look-streaming-deal-for-new-anime/.140359
  21. I know I'd never heard of it & I'm fairly familiar with obscure titles.
