    Maybe they're doing the redub for the 2.0 remake or whatever

    Or maybe the dudes there thought it would be funny if they did GitS, I don't know

    and
    make a chainsaw-whip out of magnetic sand.

    I am now interested in this Railgun show

    If those things mentioned actually happen, that is

    they already happened actually, in the show that it is a side story to, To Aru Majutsu no Index

    Well I have neither watched nor heard of that show so I am interested in this one!

    Index was pretty good. Kinda heavy on the main character telling people off for being dumb, and Index herself ceased to matter after like four episodes.

    Looks like it's just gonna be Railgun and DtB, though. Nothing else appealing in that lineup.

    Well, seeing how only one voice in the main English cast has changed--that of the Major--that could be interesting.

    It's in Rave Master that everyone says he's a dog... so far in 143 chapters of Fairy Tail he's shown up in something other than cover art... maybe 3...4 times at most?

    Also, Canaan is awesome so far, Sora no Manimani is hilarious... and GA Art Design School could be if someone other than Ayako was subbing it since they take their damn time apparently.

    Oh god, Fall previews are up? I haven't even finished watching spring shows yet. I haven't even finished K-ON! And let alone starting on the summer stuff. And don't get me started on my video game backlog. I wonder if I should just quit my job...

    So we watched Tokyo Godfathers last night. Who's a good little life-affirming movie? You are! Yes, you! It was fun to watch and just twisty enough to keep me interested without descending into the standard "WTF is going on" zone. At the end my fiancee commented on how it was not like the other Satoshi Kon works we've seen. And then Tokyo Tower started dancing to the credits music.

    Man, next season sure has a decent amount of sequels (and a spinoff!)

    Can't say anything really jumps out at me from that promo pic but it's practically impossible to determine the winners and losers when it's quite some time away anyhow.

    So am I supposed to update my animelist every time I watch an episode or read a chapter? Who does that?

    I don't do that for manga but for anime I find it pretty helpful since I can increase the episodes watched count by one with a single mouse click. Though I really only do this because at times I find it tough to remember the number of the last episode I watched, so it's an easy way to keep track.

    No concept for an ugly hero

    That's kind of why I like Kaiji's and Akagi's style. It stands out because everyone is ugly. It's like the artist went more for style then trying to give something for everyone to swoon over.

    That or he likes drawing funny noses.

    You might like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Well, I wouldn't say everyone's ugly, but Araki certainly went for style.

    If those things mentioned actually happen, that is

    They should, the first happens in the very first chapter of the manga, even. It's basically Index without the exposition and the protagonist doesn't take time out to preach at his opponents.

    That's good. All he ever did was just punch his opponents till he knocked them out anyway. Delicious biri biri...

    The only way our heroines can win against the demoness is keeping our worthless catgirl alive? Damn.

    Now one has to guess. Is Saki a demoness herself?

    Also, one has to love the magical girl sequences.

    It's also a shame that the Phantom Blood movie hasn't gotten a DVD release. I haven't found any concrete evidence on why, but I've heard rumors that Araki wasn't exactly impressed with the movie and that had something to do with it.
