Re: AP 637 - Underrated Anime of the 2010's

I can name a number of underrated anime, but I will mention those that first come to mind: Log Horizon (2013-2014) was an early issekai that was overshadowed by SAO. The first season was outstanding but the second season did seem to falter, but still very good. https://external-content.duckduckgo.co...

Re: AP 636 - Anime Winter 2019/2020

Oh, your graphic above is indicative of one show we are already watching in my household. My oldest son insists we watch Nekopara , if for no other reason than for the fan-service cringe and overt sexualized kawai. (And yes, my kid is well familiar with the game series. I shrug my shoulders, since h...

Re: AP 635 - 2020

I have a number of hopeful possibilities for 2020. As far as those that might be of concern for our AP audience, there are several anime I hope to watch. I am eagerly awaiting the third and final installment for Fate Stay Night: Heaven's Feel. There are several series to look forward too as well, in...

Re: VGP 343 Discussion Topic: Stadia!

No. Just no. Consumers should not accept cloud-only gaming. What follows that would be subscription-only gaimg -- you own _nothing_ and pay a recurring fee for the privilege of playing a game. MMO's are one thing, with warts of their own as it is, but if all games go that route? Not no, but F no. Th...

Re: AP 634 - 2019

I cannot recall any series that I actually outright hated, those were mostly "meh" this past year. I tend to have learned to avoid the outright stinkers, or have been relatively lucky in that regard, But I fondly recall several series from 2019 that I really enjoyed. (In no particular order:) Vinlan...

Re: AP 633 - Best 2010's Anime

I thought of several replies, but with each candidate I kept wondering, "I really liked said series, but was it the best ?" In the end I decided to go with the one series from the 2010's that I have watched at least three times through entirely, one that I get something new each time. I am speaking ...

Re: AP 632 - Worst 2010's Anime

I have been trying to think of anime that I have watched episodes to make a fair judgement. Most "bad" anime I tend to cease watching after the first episode. I think I have to say that Devilman Crybaby was just horrifically bad. The art style was shyte, the animation,shyte, the story was shyte, and...

Re: AP 631 - Waifus/Husbandos

Waifu's. I guess I am and have for some time been partial to Motoko Kusanagi of Ghost in the Shell : SAC . I just find her sexy, smart and super competent. http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090407062913/ultimatepopculture/images/3/3f/Ghost_in_the_Shell_S.A.C._2nd_GIG_Motoko_Kusanagi.png I am also...

Re: AP 630 - Good Bad Anime

Too many to list. Even when I consider that I will bail on a series if it proves bad. But a couple come to mind. Sword Art Online 's second season, the Alfheim Online arc, held a lot of promise, but when they nerfed Asuna and made her just another princess in distress, it did not bode well. And when...

Re: AP 629 - My Favourite Anime

Although it is no longer my favorite, Robotech/Macross convinced me that I might should take Anime more seriously. Last Exile convinced me that cinematic anime as a series is not contrained to Studio Ghibli alone. Finally, Full Metal Alchemist in both incarnations demonstrated Anime's unique ability...
