    Just finished watching Shoka, a one episode OVA about battling Japanese calligraphers that protect the Shogunate from those that would try to undermine its power produced by Production I.G. There isn't much to say in terms of writing as it's basically people fight using their secret writing/drawing techniques ala Okami. What made this a engaging watch is the quick paced animation of the fights. While the line work on the characters is somewhat rough (due a stylistic choice to resemble Edo period art or simply a constraint of budget), when the action starts moving it becomes fairer to the eyes.

    It was a fairly enjoyable watch for just the action alone. I wouldn't mind seeing more of this if it is ever produced.

    In the case anyone wants a preview of the action I made a gif.

    That bathroom sign was awesome as all hell.

    Interesting. Power set wise from that gif, that seems to draw a bit from Read or Die. Is that accurate?

    Oh hey, I just realized they didn't go for the obvious gag with the padding.

    The whole second half was pretty funny.

    Only that character does. The main power featured is art coming to life. Also everybody is a ninja.

    I just stumbled across Rosario/Kamen Rider Kiva crossover fanfiction. There's prettymuch a crossover fic for everything, I guess.

    Hahah well it makes sense I suppose shounen and sentai can go hand in hand and he is Kiva the King of Vampires as a half-human half-fangpire and...

    HOLY SHIT WHY ARE THERE SO MANY CHAPTERS OF THIS SHIT

    Glad to be of service!

    Man. That latest FMA chapter. It pretty much had it all.

    Any chapter with transmutation circle porn gets a passing grade from me. Then throw on top a shot of Izumi's trademarked sandel and we're good to go.

    Wasn't there another series with a similar premise, except the magic is cast from words instead of art?

    Hmm, just got caught up on Gintama...I wonder if the fact that I got 99% of the references mean I've crossed some threshold of weeaboodom that is not meant to be crossed?

    Oh well, it managed to make me laugh aloud fairly regularly, which is pretty impressive.

    Edit: Chapter 128 had to be the best, though (prolly NSFW-y):

    Yeah, they're really moving the story along.

    It's pretty exciting though.

    Yep, they're really moving now. Actually, it's been something like what, five years in-universe since the start of the series, so Crow's been running for four years while Kiyoshi and Otters have been running for three each about, right? I'm probably botching the timeline here, but whatever. I was curious as to how realistic it was for Kiyoshi and Otters to be continuing - they're in the upper half of the rankings, but not top-five material like Crow. Looking at the page of current Weekly Shonen Jump series on Wikipedia, it actually doesn't seem so unusual in fact for those series to be continuing. As long as you consistently stay out of the bottom five, your series is alive...

    Joke subs, of course. To quote Jaka's blog:
    NOTICE: IF IT’S NOT ON OUR FUCKING TRACKER, IT’S NOT OURS

    Since Coalguys did the previous season I imagine that a bunch of people got duped with a released tagged as theirs.

    The Haruhi movie's quality is bad. Really bad.

    Didn't stop me from watching the first half hour of it though.

    The wait's gonna be killer. D:

    On the plus side it's over 2.5 hours!

    I'm sorry, but the OP alone has animated frames of a child eating a woman's breast and another cartoon of a woman getting a breast massage. The rest of this thread has routine and sometime illustrated references to "lolicon" and various other forms of depravity. While I understand that this is typical and perhaps routine in the style of japanese cartoon that this thread is dedicated to, it is neither acceptable nor appropriate to the Penny Arcade website nor the D&D forum. We have many people who check into this forum from work, and if seen by their employer, this kind of content could get people fired.

    Maybe the Anime community in this forum isn't really mature enough to discuss their entertainment appropriately in D&D, or else perhaps anime isn't an appropriate topic to the D&D forums. In either case, a cooling-off period is in order, and the D&D anime thread will be shut down until further notice.
