What anime are you watching right now?
« on: August 16, 2010, 07:01:59 PM »

This has to be my favorite thread in any forum. Let us know what you are watching, what you recommend and what sucks hard...

Right now is Macross Frontier: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=8586
last week I finished Shangri-La: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=10246

I just finished mr macross fix, went from Macros plus, to macross frontier and then finished with macross zero, not in the right order but they are some awesome shows.
The mix of traditional animation and cgi in MF is just beautifull

I'm back to Dragon Ball. I've started watching Kai via a streaming site and will probably get it on Blu Ray next week when Madman releases it.

What I'm hanging for is Trigun Badlands Rumble...

90% through Neon Genesis Evangelion.

The last time I saw Madman have one of their epic sales I picked up most of the missing Ghibli titles from my colllection as well as anything I recognized as non-Gundam Mech related. Haven't watched hardly any of it so I'm trying to make a dent. I like Evangelion, its good. Code Geass was good too.

I have Patlabor yet to watch, Nadesico, and whatever else I've got sitting there.

Tried to watch original robotech but got about 4 discs in before I was tearing my hair out.

Really enjoyed what I caught of Death Note on TV. Caught an ep of Afro Samurai a couple of weeks back but couldn't follow it at all. Something I'd need to watch from the start.

I think the other thing I have that a friend gave me which looks interesting might be Last Exile. I've got Macross frontier there as well. Another one that won't stream to my PS3 but I'm interested as everyone keeps saying how good it is.

Sonar if your having trouble streaming it because it's in a non-standard format, you can use this PS3 Media Server app. It also works with my 360.

Last Exile and Nadesico are awesome. And is it the Patlabor movies you've yet to watch? Because they're a bit grimdark and are like most of Mamoru Oshii's other works, a bit boring at times.

Last anime I watched was The Sky Crawlers, also by Oshii but without the grimdark (for most of the movie, at least). It had a WTF ending though.

Cheers mate. I'll give that app a try. Yeah the Patlabor movies.. struggle to get through without falling asleep. Guess I had the same problem with Ghost In The Shell movies too, though I enjoyed them when I did make it through. I think I liked SAC more.

Will give Nadesico and LE a go :)

Just started watching my evangelion set for probably the 100th time, I saw 1.0 & 2.0 and while visually they were amazing i felt as if they condensed to much of the story and also changed too much of it so I was pretty much compelled to go back to the original, which is my favourite anime so I'm not complaining though, lol. That being said though it would have been nice if they stuck to the story more and just reworked the visuals... But I'm not a gainax exec. so I don't get to pick and choose.

Ended up getting DBZ Kai volume 1 on Blu Ray a few days ago so I've been watching that. Looks awesome on Blu Ray!! Shame it's not in 16:9 though (I thought it was but unfortunately it's 4:3 ratio).

We put it up on our screen in the store to check and yes it is sadly just 4:3 ratio. I thought there was meant to be some huge project of expanding it to widescreen! However, it delivers on the whole 'no more filler or wasted time' stuff.

Best fringe benefit of working in an anime/manga store is being given 'study material' for any new releases (read - we must watch as much as we can). Some series I heavily suggest that are available in Oz yet not a lot of people know about:

1. Baccano
2. Tower of Druaga (first half only. The second half is pretty tedious while the first half is incredibly funny)

Stuff that I really enjoyed that is not available in Australia commercially yet:

1. Durarararararararararararararararararaaaaaara (set in same world as Baccano and by the same author)
  - also known as DRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
2. K-On!!
3. Working!!

I'm catching High School of Dead at the moment. First Japanese animation about zombies I have ever seen. 6 episodes so far, not bad.

I have been watching High School of the Dead as well. The zombie action is cool but the fan services are way over the top (but some would consider that a good thing ;) )
