This place never feels random enough in that respect.

I thought that was snarking at random strangers without fear of retribution.

there's a pewdiepie video promoting Transformers Earth Wars and it is an official promotion video, does this mean he should get a tfwiki page?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2016 - 07:01 PM)

I thought King Kong '05 was pretty great! I just wish I hadn't watched it as a double feature with that movie about the island with the giant bugs.

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 04:46 PM)

yeah it was long as hell, it took me several days to finish it.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 11:58 AM)

maybe this new one won't take half a day to watch all the way through...

@  tffan01 : (24 July 2016 - 11:00 AM)

I believe this new Kong movie will not be as good as the 2005 one.

@  Pennpenn : (24 July 2016 - 08:52 AM)

You'd figure something like that would get a pass, some kind of grandfather clause since the name is already intractably established.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2016 - 08:15 AM)

"DS-1 Orbital Battle Station." That's the official classification...

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 08:04 AM)

now that Hasbro can't use the word "Death" on the packaging of their toys, what will they call the Death Star?

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 July 2016 - 07:44 AM)

It's in the comic con trailer and seems like a hideous waste. I guess the show makers have no reverence for Doctor Who like they do Star Trek.

@  Bass X0 : (24 July 2016 - 04:20 AM)

Which is the height of quality for Family Guy jokes...

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 03:16 PM)

Ooh, sounds neat.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 01:16 PM)

Yeah, the first was definitely the weakest of the three. Really looking forward to the next issue; judging by the preview for it, it's delving into Karza and Shazraella's past and Microspace's exact political situation.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 01:11 PM)

I was ambivalent about the first issue, but the quality stepped up in the second and again in the third.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:37 AM)

And yes, Micronauts is great! I enjoyed the first three issues quite a lot.

@  Sockie : (23 July 2016 - 10:36 AM)

Cave Carson looks really cool as well, so I can't be too saddened about that.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:29 AM)

I ended up checking it out, and it's pretty damn neat.

@  Broadside : (23 July 2016 - 06:28 AM)

So. Micronauts, huh?

@  Maruten : (23 July 2016 - 03:49 AM)

Oh, it's only backups in "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye". Still. Onboard.

@  Nutjob R/T : (22 July 2016 - 02:44 PM)

Which is kinda... I preordered the new VF-2ss, and then before it shipped there was the exclusive version with the SAP pack that was only open for two days of orders. And then I got the naked VF2ss and it's... Not... Good.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 July 2016 - 12:18 AM)

Yeah, Japanese online sellers seem to take it very seriously, in my experience. When you commit to something, it's expected that you follow through on it, and cancelled transactions seem to be frowned upon. However, I've never dealt with more courteous or considerate sellers than those in Japan; some have even enclosed a small gift item in the package on occasion.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:44 PM)

Nothing really happened, I just got an email saying I shouldn't do that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

But I ended up buying it later since it got delayed.

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:43 PM)

and what did they do?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 03:42 PM)

I've cancelled something with them once.

@  Nutjob R/T : (21 July 2016 - 03:27 PM)

AmiAmi is nice but if you preorder you gotta friggin' MEAN it

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 03:17 PM)

Yep, I ordered a bunch of Gundam kits from them earlier this year. The shipping was high but I had to do EMS due to the weight of the package

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 03:09 PM)

and amiami is a reputable site? this is the first time i'm using them.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 02:56 PM)

Oh! Nice. I guess I thought SAL was always untracked.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2016 - 01:39 PM)

Registered means it has tracking.

@  Dracula : (21 July 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Yeah it's just slower and doesn't have tracking...usually the best economic option

@  Benbot : (21 July 2016 - 01:07 PM)

SAL is just fine

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:06 PM)

unless anybody has problems with "SAL Small Packet (Registered)".

@  Bass X0 : (21 July 2016 - 01:03 PM)

Okay, I got it down to 11,930 (£85) with SAL Small Packet (Registered). Thats better. £101 would be too much for two Deluxes and a Voyager even with better (IMO) color schemes.

@  MEDdMI : (21 July 2016 - 01:02 PM)

That's about 101.55 British pounds

2016 Anime season and recommendations

Posted 11 January 2012 - 12:24 AM

So I figured that I'd make a topic for each Anime season instead of just one or two individual shows. Saves space. So I'll list what cool stuff is airing, continuing, etc and so forth. Of course, a LOT of anime airs every season, so I'll probably miss stuff, so don't hesitate to point out things I miss! Anyhoo:


New Shows:


Kill Me Baby
vgrmlf.jpg

A weird little comedy from JC Staff, about the assassin schoolgirl Sonya and her normal classmate Yasuna. It's pretty much 100% gags, with lots of the humour being derived from Sonya's assassin training overreacting to Yasuna's idiotic goading. Also there's a rather whacked out ninja girl. Definitely a love-it-or-hate-it show.


High School DxD
wl2451.jpg

Your usual fanservice harem comedy. This one is about a young perverted teenager who finally manages to score a girlfriend only for her to kill him on the first date, then get drawn into a secret war between demons and fallen angels. Lots of breasts in this one, but because it's based off a light novel series there's a good chance it'll be a very cluttered adaptation.

Senki Sessho Symphogear
20t2s1d.jpg

The first mecha-related show features at first glance some power-armoured idol girls fighting monsters, but don't be fooled. High death counts and shocking developments in just the first episode have pencilled this title in as one to watch if you like action and drama.

Mouretsu Pirates (also known as Bodacious Space Pirates)
5mh6wo.jpg

With an awesome rock intro, high production values, cool starships, great tech design and a large cast set for 26 episodes, Mouretsu Pirates is the story of a young girl from the planet Sea of Morningstar, a planet which fought for historical independance many years ago with the help of privateer Space Pirates. This history comes back to bite Kato Marika in the butt one day when it turns out her missing father, revealed to be the captain of a Pirate vessel, has died, leaving her in line to become captain of the vessel. Definitely check this one out.

Rinne No Lagrange
zo9ht5.jpg

Production IG and Xebec have brought out an interesting and beautiful mecha show this season with Rinne no Lagrange. Kyono Madoka just wants to help people, which is why she formed a school club devoted to aiding others. Then an alien girl with some goggles showed up and got her to help pilot a robot called Vox Aura against a trio of alien men in a battle above a floating fortress island. A very pretty and interesting show with a quirky sense of humour as well as some mystery about it, Rinne no Lagrange is very refreshing. It's also the first time I've ever seen someone use a Suplex on a giant robot, complete with count.


Daily Lives of Highschool Boys
kyu50.jpg

A collaboration between Square-Enix and Sunrise, which is so weird the characters themselves comment on it in the first episode, Daily Lives is a silly little comedy about a bunch of guys screwing about with each other. If you like the sort of humour the show uses, you'll find it hilarious. Lots of good voice actors and plenty of gags.

Black Rock Shooter
ndlap0.jpg

Once a song and vocaloid meme thing, now it's own series, Black Rock Shooter is about alternate personas of real people fighting in abstract worlds. And stuff. The OVA last year was pretty well-recieved, but the jury's still out on the TV series and its' new art style.


Other new shows include several sports-related titles, a couple of romantic comedies, and a historical drama anime called Brave10.


Sequels and Second Seasons:

Amagami SS+ plus, Natsume Yuujin Chou Shi, New Prince of Tennis, Milky Holmes 2nd Act, Zero no Tsukaima F, Nisemonogotari, Aquarion EVOL, and the new Smile Precure series.


Shows continuing into the new year:

Gundam AGE, Cardfight Vanguard, Digimon Xros Wars, Guilty Crown, Mirai Nikki, Chihayafuru, Persona 4, Last Exile, and the final season of Shakugan no Shana.

Full plate this season, Personally I'd recommend Gundam AGE, Vanguard, Guilty Crown, Rinne, Pirates, Daily Lives, Precure, and Aquarion EVOL if you watched the first one.

Feels good to have like five mecha-heavy shows in a season.

Of course mecha using the Japanese use tends towards anything heavily-involving mechanical design, so pirate starships and power armour count along as well. Still, Aquarion, gundam, rinne.

I'll definitely check out the Symphogear and Pirates.

Thanks for this thread, I'm a very light on my anime knowledge so finding new shows is always fairly difficult for me, so this is very informative.

Though I'm having such a good time with Stein's Gate I'm not sure anything will be able to capture me like that show for a while.

pirates and Symphogear catch my eye, so I will give those a go eventually.

The first episode of Bodacious Space Pirates was solid, but didn't really do anything. It feels like it has plenty of potential, though. Nothing else really leaps out at me apart from Aquarion EVOL, which I haven't started on yet (I've only just started watching the original after getting it on DVD for Christmas). I'll wait until we're 3 weeks or so into the season and see where things stand at that point.

Guilty Crown is...interesting. It's got sci-fi super-high production values and some wonderful animation, but the setting is a bit simplistic and it suffers from "everybody is better than the main character who is a bit of a joke" syndrome.

Generally people want it to improve.
