Re: AP 586 - Winter 2018/19

Honestly, except for perhaps some continuing series, this Winter’s season for anime is offering little that I am looking forward to. We will give a few a look, but so far there is little to get my hopes up for. Quite unlike much of 2018, when we had a lot of good new series launched. Conversely, as ...

Re: AP 584 - The Very Best 2018

The year 2018 had a lot of very good, entertaining anime. We had a lot of new seasons or a second series to good anime from previous years, but while many were entertaining, most proved to me to be less satisfying — so I will not mention them. Instead I want to point out some good, if not great anim...

Re: AP 583 - Worst 2018

I would have nominated the Ragnarök one ( The Master Of Ragnarok And Blesser Of Einherjar ) as the worst. But I really think Conception is giving it a serious run for its money — and it isn’t even finished with its run as yet. Oh, and there’s a serious burn-it in that Yuri anime Netsuzou Trap That w...

Re: VGP 319 Discussion Topic: Most Fun Games of 2018!

(Wow, still no discussion? I’ll get us started then...) It’s been a strange year for me. While I cannot recall too many great games of late — other than my usual of playing a heavily modded Skyrim or making my own mods — there were few I consider to be all that memorable. But lately I went back to N...

Re: AP 582 - Where do you get it?

All of the above? We have subscriptions to Netflix, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Amazon Prime — and those streaming services seem to satisfy at least 90% of our family needs. Then we also have Netflix DVD (Blu-ray) service for a lot of the physical media needs. AND if we like something good enough, ...

Re: AP 581 - Keep em Coming!

There are a ton of anime series I’d like to see additional seasons of. A few come to mind immediately. First, I and my kids have been waiting (and waiting) for another season of Ars Nova : Arpegio of Blue Steel , And likewise, they always want more Girls Und Panzer (although I personally think that ...

Re: AP 580 - Christmas

I can’t think of a Japanese Anime that does not have Christmas as a somewhat integral part of its set up more than does the Amagami series — or at least, its the first one that came to mind. The back story to the lead protag Junichi was that his heart was broken after being stood up by a girl he had...

Re: AP 579 - Just Stop

Yeah, nothing to add. The first thing I thought of was the second series of Last Exile mentioned above—although I did not hate it, I did not think it was necessary. And Haruhi Suzamiya’s Endless Eight p*ssed me off so bad that I came to hate both seasons altogether. I tell my son to never mention it...

Re: AP 578 - Eateries

When I think of food in an anime it has to be Shokugeki no Soma. So I would like to visit the Totsuki Saryo Culinary Institute and sample their dishes. Food-gasms galore! https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d3/Shokugeki_no_Souma_Volume_1.jpg OR... if it has to be a restaurant, then perhaps J...

Re: VGP 313 Discussion Topic: Studio Closures

I consider an acquisition by a big pub like EA or Activision to be no different than a closure. Sooner or later it happens.
Thus I bid a fond farewell to Obsidian, swallowed into Microsoft like so many others.
