This is the place where you post what you're currently watching, be it if the show is currently airing or if you're catching up with an older series or re-watching a favorite. You can also tell us all about what manga you're reading/following. I'll start it off.

Right now I'm watching...

K-ON! - currently airing, full of loli goodness :P
Valkyria Chronicles - currently airing, pretty good anime adaption of a great game, so far, love the ED
Cowboy Bebop - Re-watching because it's awesome, I just watched "Cowboy Funk" last night.
Last Exile - Re-watching, but with the English VA's this time because Lynk says they're awesome, just got my DVDs not too long ago too.


Right now I'm reading...

Naruto Shippuden - I really liked the whole fight with Pain, but now it's doing a boring backstory type thing xD
Bleach - Bleach got kind of stupid for a few chapters, but it looks like it's getting back on track.

I'm not a big manga reader. I'd like to catch up on Bleach, but I'm so far behind and been too busy to catch up.

As for what I'm watching, really only K-ON! right now. I'm liking it pretty well so far, made me laugh quite a bit. I also like both the OP and ED, especially the ED, I forgot to check if they were released yet on CD but I want to say they are, I'll have to get those.

I haven't even bothered watching the last couple episodes of Bleach because it's on really bad fillers, but once those get over with I will pick it back up again.

The only thing I'm watching right now is G-Gundam. Great series in my opinion, plenty of explosions.

What I'm reading...
Naruto Shippuden - I loved the begining of Naruto Vs Pain, but like Maverick said, it's just boring flashbacks now.
One Piece - Still packed with action and stretchy goodness.
Naruto (pre-timeskip.) - Cathing up with this one because of the classic fights and the action.

K-On is <3. Though I did find something pretty interesting in Episode 2...

Those who frequent the "Who Likes Anime" thread back in Ahto already know this, but what the heck, I'll repeat it one more time...

Currently watching Naruto Shippuuden and Bleach. Just two more episodes until Shippuuden's Three-tails filler arc ends and the manga adaptation continues - Yippeeee!!!
As for Bleach, the "Turn back the pendulum" adaptation ended a few weeks ago, so now the main event is on!

Right now, I am watching:

Bleach

I am reading Chibi Vampire.

Might I suggest to everyone a website called My Anime List (www.myanimelist.net)? Here you can organize all of your anime and manga into categories, like "watching" or "completed" or "plan to watch." You can also rate the anime and stuff too. Here's mine (http://myanimelist.net/animelist/SukatoKojo) for an example.

Mav
04-28-2009, 03:54 AM
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that Dattebayo fansubs picked-up 07 Ghost since they dropped Shippuden, so I watched the first episode of that, and it seems interesting so far, so I'll probably sort of try to keep up with that.

Currently, I am not watching any particular show, but lately, I have been watching many of the Studio Ghibli films. So far, this week, I have watched some of their classics, such as: My Neighbor Totoro, The Cat Returns, and Porco Rosso. And then I watched Steamboy, but that is not quite Studio Ghibli, but it's good:D

Thanks for the recommendation, leXX! Vexille was an enjoyable watch - the animation was very good and some of the scenes were almost jaw-dropping. The dub wasn't too shabby, either. I would agree that it had a good ending.

Why is it that anime movies often have satisfying endings, but anime series so often don't?

FMA2 has the same story as FMA1, but things are changed up a bit
Well, it does for now, but it will diverge later. The first one followed the all of the manga that had been written then, but had to make up its own stuff for what happened after that. A lot more of the manga has been written now, so the new series will have the same stuff as the first one until it gets to where FMA1 had to make up its own stuff. Then it'll keep following the manga, so it'll be different from the first one.

FMA2 (at least so far) seems to be going through things rather quickly; I hope they slow down a little when they get to the stuff that wasn't in the first one. FMA1 was awesome until the last couple episodes or so, but the manga seems like it will have a much more satisfying ending, so I'm pretty hopeful for FMA2. :)

Kuuki
05-24-2009, 08:32 PM
i think that if ppl watch FMA2 the creators expect two things, 1) ppl have seen it already, and want to get through the 'main stuff'; or 2) new viewers will get the 'cliff notes' of what's going on.

Let's see, I've watched SDF:Macross, Do You Remember Love? and Flashback 2012, all within this past week. I've been watching Haruhi S2, well sort of, I just put episode 3 on loop and let it play a handful of times, same thing really. I got caught up on the Valkyria Chronicles anime and have also been following 07 Ghost.

Over the weekend I'll probably watch Macross Plus.

Lynk Former
03-04-2010, 11:05 AM
Wow, how long did that take you?About a week and a half.

And you didn't watch in in-universe chronological order?Actually no, the reason for this was because I was just thinking about various key information certain Macross series have presented over the years and the overall story. I started out by watching Macross Frontier because the first things I was theorising about at the time had to do with the events of that series... then I went onto Super Dimension Fortress Macross straight after and then Flashback 2012 and DYRL?... after that I went onto Zero and then Plus. I was going to stop there but ended up convincing myself to watch Macross 7...

Some time in the future I should watch all of the series in chronological order, with DYRL? put between Flashback 2012 and Plus since it was released as an in-universe movie in 2031...

Also, http://www.twilightlynk.com/forums/t353/3/#post8516 @ Prime


EDIT: Actually.... now that I think about it... how many hours of watching was that really? *calculates*


EDIT 2: Okay... so apparently with all of that added up it comes to around.... 3595 minutes... which is almost 60 hours worth of viewing...

Yes GT hasn't been to good so far. I'm willing to pain myself through it though so I can reach Dragon Ball Kai.

DB Kai is just a rework of DBZ using the same footage from the original version. No point watching it unless you're an absolute die hard fan who jacks off to everything Dragon Ball.

I watched the Macross Frontier movie recently. It definitely wasn't as entertaining as the whole series but I guess that's what happens when you try to put an entire 26 episode series into a 2 hour movie. Hoping the next movie (which will actually be canon instead of a retelling) is much better.

Is claymore any good? I have a $15 off coupon and see the entire disc set. Tempting. Though I want it myself I was thinking of getting it for a fellow anime fan--a fellow swordsman as well. I also see a ~16 vol manga.

Please tell me it's worth the investment. And if not, is witchblade any good? I only saw the first episode and it seemed good IIRC but things are getting a bit hazy now.

Also loosely interested in C, but I think it's soon going to devolve into a loosely-metaphorical-Yugioh-for-grown-ups.

Second anime I'm following is Tiger & Bunny, which has awesome animation and is surprisingly entertaining every second. It has a neat blend of Western, CGI and Japanese animation to it and good writing backing it.

Finished Last Exile a while ago, and watched the first episode of Steins;Gate, but then I went on vacation and my wimpy little netbook doesn't like 720p .mkv's so Steins is on hold. I did manage to finish the 5th season of Dexter though. :carms:

Haven't watched much animu in a while, but I've been watching K-ON!! the past few days.

Been following the new season now, hmm...

Usagi Drop - I like this one the best, though I procrastinate the most to see it, because it's slow and heartwarming. Sweet animation and Rin is really, really cute. It's a good series all-in-all, different from the rest, at least.

No. 6 - Utopian/dystopian to the max. The story (so far) really isn't anything new - naive kid who grew up in a seemingly-perfect utopia meets savage kid from outside world, learns that people live outside the utopia in misery and third-worldiness, yada yada. Surprisingly, the homosexual relationship hinted between the two main characters is the most interesting part of the anime, followed by the otherwise excellent animation (even though the outside world looks like it's Fallout: The Anime more often than not).

Mawaru Penguindrum - This is the season's WTF anime. The first episode was hilarious all through, but the other episodes not so much. It's absurdist comedy in the vein of Arakawa, but that's also the annoying part about it, because it can't seem to decide if it's wants to deal with something serious or something ridiculous. Terrific music though.

Kami-sama no Memo Chou - It looks like Gosick crossed with Durarara!! with a bit of Angel Beats! and has the strong points of neither. Very slick and well-researched, and will apparently be dealing with social problems in Japan, but it's hard to take the series seriously at times, with its misplaced fan service and steretypical characters. The hero is too cynical to care for, the heroine is too cold and distant, and the side-characters too plain boring. Could have potential later though.

New season starts next month, so Ima so excited. :D Except not, because most of the anime coming out appear to be otaku trash with only 2-3 decent concepts (which is about as many as I can follow anyhow).

So right now I'm only following Usagi Drop (rather slowly) and Mawaru Penguindrum (not so slowly) as Steins;Gate and Tiger & Bunny have concluded.

My Top 5 for the year so far:

1. Steins;Gate
2. Mawaru Penguindrum
3. Tiger & Bunny
4. Usagi Drop
5. Gosick

Let's see what have I watched recently...

-Gantz... I did not like it very much at all

-Finished up Steins;Gate which is awesome

Lately though I've just been watching movies/OVA's, 5 Centimeters per Second, Voices of a Distant Star, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, and then last night Howl's Moving Castle. Pretty much all of those are great, I'd especially recommend 5 Centimeters per Second and Howl's Moving Castle to those that haven't seen them.

As far as this coming season, I'm definitely gonna be watching Last Exile -Ginyoku no Fam-, I'll prolly also watch Persona 4: The Animation, played the game, it's awesome. Lastly I was thinking about following Guilty Crown, it sounds interesting.

I tried watching Bleach years ago and i didn't like it all that much.
I've tried watching it this time and I'm hooked.

I've re-watched Death Note for the 4th time. And i've been buying the Death Note Manga. Black edition. (A new one released every month) since i've never read it until now, waiting for the release for it is like waiting for a NEW manga to come out! Though i think the last one just went on sale.

And I love the scott pilgrim comics.

I also watched Elfen Lied. And Chobits (Though i'm not finished with that one yet)

I keep hearing about Steins;Gate so I think i'll be looking into that soon.

Mav

I can't stand the Bleach anime, way too much filler and the filler is also horrible, so I just read the manga for Bleach and quite frankly it hasn't been as good post-Aizen arc.

Death Note's awesome as are the Scott Pilgrim comics. I haven't seen the other stuff so yeah, no comment. :P

I would highly recommend you watch Steins;Gate so far it is easily the best show this year.

As for myself, I watched Usagi Drop and thought it was very good, then I read the manga and it completely ruined it for me, so yeah I advise not reading the Usagi Drop manga. As for this current season I'm watching...

Persona 4: The Animation - So far it has stayed very true to the story from the video game, which is a good thing. Not much to say really if you like the video game you'll like this. If you're not familiar with the game, well then I guess you could describe it as a murder mystery featuring school kids with the ability to summon demons to help them fight other demons... yeah.

Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam - The sequel to the original Last Exile, so far things seem to be playing out in a similar fashion to the original too early to say either way on this one, but I would highly recommend the original LE,

Guilty Crown - One of the more highly regarded shows this season, I'm really liking it so far. It is like a mix of Code Geass, Macross and GitS, plus the female lead has pink hair, so that is a plus.

Tamayura -hitotose- - Very meh, nothing exciting, average slice of life stuff, but it airs while I'm waiting for the other shows, so I'll prolly keep watching.

Persona 4 is pretty fun and am following that, but the surprise series this season is Chihayafuru, which sounds like a boring shoujo anime from the synopsis but is actually pretty entertaining and well-scripted to watch.

Un-Go I dropped halfway through the first episode for just how boring it was and its retro-future art style was annoying for me. Mirai Nikki was interesting, but the protagonist is lame, and the execution is ultra-bland.

Ok, so Tamayura -hitotose- as expected was just meh, had some fun episodes but overall not a very memorable series. Persona 4 I'm a little behind on, perhaps cause I know the story from the game so I'm not as driven to watch it, but it sticks to the game's story really well so that's a plus. Guilty Crown... had so much potential, it's in the last 4 or 5 episodes now and really dunno if it can redeem itself for me, but I'll finish watching it. Last Exile Fam has been my favorite of the 4, but I have bias from loving the first Last Exile.
