Yes, it's nothing of note.

Fuck damn Psycho Pass is some awesome sauce.

Blast of Tempest - you were so good, then you started smoking crack, and now you're pants on head retarded and forgettable.

K - Fun, eye candy, and the story didn't quite go where I thought it would.

From the New World - Shits gotten super deep. Also, the crazy stylistic thing is pretty badass. The whole incorporation-of-bonobo-DNA-into-humans . . . kinda jarring, kinda creepy, but I see where they were going, it's a whole amoral-cold-scientific-reasoning sort of deal (I think).


Oh, oh oh

I forgot some

BTOOOM still makes me want a video game version of it.

My Little Monster - Funniest series that isn't a gag comedy, it reminds me of Best Student Council, but funnier.

Ixion Saga DT is the funniest thing that is a gag comedy, it's by the director of Gintama. Also, lots of familiar voices.

Lastly, Magi is probably the best new shonen series to come out in forever.

Sorry for holding out and not reading the back pages, but I wanted to hear your end game summary, now that it is conclusively worth watching.

What is psycho pass about?

Dystopian future, maybe 40-50 years or so. Over reliance on technology.
Everyone get's a "psycho pass", a measure of your mental stability. If it gets 'too cloudy', you're labeled a 'latent criminal' and imprisoned for life. If it gets a little cloudy you have to go to therapy and take meds. If it gets 'REALLY cloudy', cops can kill you on sight. It's kinda Minority Report meets 1984, only you're analyzed by computers, not psychics. The weapons the cops use can measure your psycho pass, and depending on how cloudy it is, the weapons go from stun mode to termination mode (which is VERY messy).

Oh and cops are inspectors and enforcers. Enforcers are all latent criminals, albeit with slightly more privileges. Inspectors go out and supervise enforcers,and can use force, either lethal or non lethal on them, if they deem necessary.

Also, it's from the same studio that did GiTS.

Oh. Ahahaha. That sounds great. I read a short story (I'll edit this if I can remember it) like that a while ago and it seems this take on the concept is far more authoritarian.

Wow. You gotta be a stone cold motherfucker to rationalize increasing the age of abortion limit from 22 weeks post conception to 17 years. Shocked

Fuckin' post apocalyptic school boards of the future.

I keep seeing ads for Cardfight!! Vanguard on webcomic sites but it's a terrible cartoon. Do not recommend at all to anyone ever. It's like yugioh but somehow even less interesting.

uh... as far as card game anime go, I'll be watching the new season of Chihayafuru, I guess. And Psycho Pass is still going.

A sequel to Ghost in the Shell SAC is in the works. It sounds better than a mecha anime, so I suppose that's something.

I'm probably the only still watching it, but Space Brothers has gotten fuckin' intense the last few weeks.

This season is pretty week overall. I mean, well Psycho Pass has gone where I expected, but I haven't really started anything new.

Blast of Tempest went someplace I didn't expect, which was good, because it's still going, and it got kinda crappy there for a bit.

Oh and Gintama is in the midst of a "serious" arc, but it's still an arc with the Shogun, which means it's completely fuckin' hysterical at the same time.

I'm actually really happy with the new run of Hunter x Hunter.

Fuck yeah!

I hope they decide to animate the chimera ant arc. Also, I'm anxious for the manga to restart. Yu Yu Hakusho ended abruptly after reaching a similar point in the story.

Also, if you haven't seen Level E, I super highly recommend it. Just realize it's a comedic mind fuck of a story. Also, don't get too attached to characters too soon. It's one of the few series I absolutely could not figure out what the fuck was going to happen next.

One of the main themes is how the Prince makes Kraft's life a living hell. Anything else you think the story is about is probably wrong. Also, fuck the critics, out of 600 ratings on Crunchyroll, about 550 out of 600 gave it 4 or 5 stars: http://www.crunchyroll.com/level-e/reviews

Any way, here's to hoping Togashi restarts the series sooner than later.

Also, I'm taking this post to say fuck you Naruto anime producers. 60 chapters behind the manga and you needed to give us filler? Fuck you with splintery broomsticks right up your money grubbing asses.

Hunter X Hunter: it's shonen done right. Or maybe done best. Yeah, I'd say it's better than pretty much most other series out there. Also, it has some of the darkest, most twisted, yet completely likable villains out there. Lots of blue/orange morality.

They're still a couple months away from getting as far as the 1999 run got, but I heard somewhere that they've confirmed that they're going to animate at least through the chimera ant arc. Whether they go further than that depends on the manga, I'm sure.

Biske needs more screen time~
...as does Kurapika. I'll be watching the movie when I get a chance.


I think it's funny that even though Gon's the protagonist,
every single character popularity poll for this show ever wrote:
1) Killua
2) Kurapika
3) Gon
4+) antagonists and other supporting characters

I must admit that other than some of the anime in this thread, there's very little in the industry I've been able to appreciate. I've been totally irritated by the entire Naruto deal, and took 30-some episodes to become a fan of One Piece. Hunter x Hunter, however, is being a bit of a refreshment so far.
