    Heh. You haveta' sort of treat it like you're watching it with your kid then, because it gets silly. But there is some funny stuff in there. And like I mentioned, it also becomes probably more of a girls' show....not being dismissive, but just with the romance stuff.

    I'm done with Sword Art Online. It was cool, the idea behind it is really interesting, but so different from what I thought it would be. I figured we would see more of a group of people trying to level up while aquiring new ways to defeat the bosses and win the game, but instead it felt to me like a soap opera. We got two moments where they faced the main bosses of the tower, then immediately defeated the last one before its time, which was supposed to be stronger and the game was over. Then we get another game and rather weird plot of "sister" loving the "brother" and the villain almost raping the girl, which wasn't as engaging anymore since they couldn't die in real life.

    It had some good battles though, but the story, in my opinion, was just weird. Maybe I wasn't prepared for this. I got something different from what I expected, but not in a good way.

    I don't know what my next anime is going to be. I need ideas.

    Yea... :(

    Though I'm wondering what the whole deal with season 2 is. Some people said that the "preview" was just a spoof, and some other annoyingly unconfirmed sources say that the second season is coming this summer. I'm just not gonna get my hopes up and find the manga.

    Berserk episode 1. Not bad. Old school anime. Swords, demons, blood. There were only 25 eps, so I should be able to knock this out in a few weeks.

    First 3 episodes of One Piece. Decided to give this a shot and its pretty enjoyable so far. If I didn't know better I would've sworn Akira Toriyama had made a pirate show because the similarities to Dragonball are mad. Definitely want to see more but im more than a little put off by the episode count.

    Also the first 3 episodes of Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day. Absolutely beautiful series so far, and it's had me crying already.

    It'll only get better :up:
    I advise you to take your time with the show, you don't need to watch 600 episodes in a row, while the filler is normally relativelly short, if you don't want to watch it then you should skip some, the only that really matters is around episodes 50 and spans some 5 episodes, it's important because it contains some very important canonical stuff they inserted inside the filler.

    5 episodes into Steins;Gate and my heart is pounding and my brain is exploding. I love this series already. It's a crime that it has taken me this long to see this.

    English sub or dub?

    Because even though I love the original language, the English Dub is so special in its own right.

    Done watching Steins; Gate. My mind was taken through a voyage of stress and anxiety I haven't felt like that watching any other series before it and I'll admit it had my eyes looking like waterfalls throughout a few episodes.

    Quite possibly one of the best pieces of sci fi to grace reality (or at least this world line ;) ). Simply extrodinary this show. The English dub by the way was immaculate. Some of the best performances I've heard in a while.

    Breathtaking.

    About a year ago or so, I was looking up some new anime to watch, and I think somewhere or someone online suggested Steins;Gate. So, I thought, "What the heck", and decided to give it a whirl.

    Needless to say, I was not disappointed. :woot:

    I'm on episode 13 of the dub, and it's as fresh as the day I first watched it. It's like a whole new experience.

    Yeah, I've a had a couple of those. I love when Mayuri tells the story about how she wished for Okabe's fever to go away when he was young. It's so simple, yet effective. It really got to me because I have siblings of my own.

    Another is at the end of episode 12, when Mayuri is shot. J. Michael Tatum's performance in the English Dub makes that moment even more heartbreaking. ("What the hell is this???") :csad:
    I'm sure I'll have some more of those moments again as I continue watching the dub.

    I love the English Dub. The scripts maintains the original intent, but does it's own thing with it. You can tell Mr. Tatum had a very fun time writing the script (the Doctor Who reference's! :woot:).

    The VA's in the English Dub also work very well. They're different from the Japanese VA's, but they still fit they're character's, particularly J. Michael Tatum as Okabe and newcomer Jackie Ross as Mayuri (Her performance fits the character to a tee). Even Tyson Rinehart makes a great Daru! And their voices sound so natural to the characters, you swear the anime was done here in the U.S. first.

    In the end, though, I like both, so I can't choose one over the other. It's like choosing a favorite flavor of ice cream. They're both great for different reasons. It's the same reason I love Fullmetal Alchemist.

    I agree with every word. I'll probably end up re watching it in Japanese at some point just so I can hear their performances. Both have gotten a lot of accolades from what I can tell.

    The moments that made me lose it were: [BLACKOUT](Suzuha finding out Itaru was her father, Makise and Okabe confessing their love to one another and how they'd be together no matter the world line, & Mayrui's and Okabe's story was really sweet too that one hit me pretty hard as well)[/BLACKOUT].

    It may be my favorite time travel (I feel calling it that is such an understatement as it's so much more) story. Everything about this was just so perfect.

    Oh and the OST for this was just incredible. Especially this little melody that played at all the right moments.

    I'll need to check that out. That title cover and synopsis alone look intriguing enough.

    Finished up Anohana and it was a joy to watch. 11 episodes was just the right amount for it to say what it wanted to.

    SO I finally got around to watching Neon Genesis Evangelion over the last few days, including the End of Evangelion movie. I just have one thing to ask: What the hell?
