Fantasy Adventure Mecha Get!!: Spring 2007 Anime

AroducAroduc regular
Thread exists to talk about contemporary and refreshing classique anime, manga, and in general the coolness of Japanese media culture so long as we don't try to poke into the creepiness of their rampant misogyny and otaku fetishism.


BAM! Maybe new thread time?


I've put together a torrent of the 10 publicly released promo vids that have been released so far. They're for Baccano!, Code-E, Doujin Work, Higurashi Kai, Nanatsuiro Drops, Shigurui, Skygirls, Tetsuko's Journey and two for VOTOMS. Since I'm a nice guy, I've even reincoded them all into standard xvid-avis.

tetsuko.jpg
Tetsuko's Trip
http://www.tetsuko.jp/
Studio: Group TAC
Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life
Information Links: ANN Entry, <a href="http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=38153&quot; target="_blank">Animesuki Thread
</a>Premiers June 24th

Summary:
Based on a manga where a manga artist accompanies her boss and a travel writer/train otaku on various train trips around Japan. Furthermore, the manga itself is relatively non-fiction since the writer did actually end up making all of the trips that she then proceeds to write about.

Personal Thoughts:
*shrug* Slice of life stuff really isn't my boat. If you really really love trains though, I'm sure this show will put you in seventh heaven.


buzzer.jpg
Buzzer Beater
http://www.ntv.co.jp/buzzer/
Studio: TMS Entertainment
Genre: Sports, Science Fiction
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July 3rd

Summary:
In the not so distant future, aliens have pretty much taken over the sport of basketball. It falls to New York bball hustler Hideyoshi to lead a team of all humans and bring back the intergalactic basketball championship to Earth. Amazingly, this is a remake of a 2005 series by the same name.

Personal Thoughts:
You're kidding, right?


codee.jpg
Code-E
http://avexmovie.jp/lineup/code-e/
Studio: Studio DEEN
Genre: Comedy, Romance, Mystery
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 3rd

Summary:
Ebihara Chinami uncontrollably emits a electronic pulse whenever she gets excited, which makes her life in normal society a living hell. When she transfers to her newest school, she soon meets someone who wants to study her, along with others that have a similar power and a conspiracy targetting their powers.

Personal Thoughts:
The writer of the novel that this story is based on also penned Scrapped Princess, which I have kind of a love-hate relationship with. Plus we've got Studio DEEN here, so this one is kind of a crapshoot. We'll see how the first couple episodes pan out.


doujinwork.jpg
Doujin Work
http://www.doujin.tv/
Studio: REMIC
Genre: Comedy
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 3rd

Summary:
A peak at the ins and outs of the doujinshi writing industry of Japan through the eyes of our adorable little doujin artist.

Personal Thoughts:
Perhaps. I loved Comic Party Revolution, but wasn't a huge fan of the original Comic Party or Genshiken and this is another in that line of offbeat looks at the doujin business. On the other hand, the writer of the manga is the same guy who wrote the infamous "A Cat Is Fine Too" Tsukihime doujin, so it could be extremely hilarious. Back on the first hand... a healthy chunk of it is going to be live action looks at the doujin industry, and nothing sours a show like education. So... we'll see.


kenko.jpg
Kenko Zenrakei Suieibu Umisho
http://www.umisho.com/
Studio: Artland
Genre: Comedy, Sports
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 3rd

Summary:
Kaname Okimura can't swim... so like all right thinking individuals, he joins a swimming club. It turns out that it's full of weirdos who don't help him learn how to swim at all... until a new girl with an unorthodox style, incredible speed, and a penchant for swimming in the nude transfers in.

Personal Thoughts:
Well... it's Artland. It remains to be seen whether we're going to get another Happiness out of them, or another Mushishi. I'm sort of assuming the former.


schooldays.jpg
School Days
http://www.schooldays-anime.com/
Studio: TNK
Genre: Drama, Romance
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July 3rd

Summary:
Makoto rides the train to school everyday with Kotonoha, a girl he has a crush on, but is totally unaware that he even exists. Noticing this, Makoto's friend Sekai works to hook the two of them up while confronting her own feelings for him. Based on a fully animated hentai game of the same name.

Personal Thoughts:
You know, I remember when some group got it into their heads to start subtitling the game as if it was an actual show. From this, I'm slightly confused as to what this show is even going to be... are they just going to take the scenes straight from the game and dump them onto TV? Anyway, plain old maudlin school girl dramas aren't my bag, daddy-o.

zombie.jpg
ZOMBIE-LOAN
http://www.zombie-loan.com/
Studio: Xebec
Genre: Supernatural
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July 3rd

Summary:
When a person is about to die, they develop a gray ring around their necks that darkens as their death approaches. Kita Michiru has the ability to see these rings, and notices that two boys in her class have rings that show that they should have died in an accident months ago. They tell her that the Zombie Loan office gave them a second chance at life if they help hunt down malicious zombies and recruit her into helping them as well.

Personal Thoughts:
Perhaps it'll be okay. Sounds like a relatively decent premise, but Xebec's at the helm which is usually a pretty worrisome prospect.


mushi-uta.jpg
Mushi-Uta
http://www.wowow.co.jp/anime/mushi-uta/
Studio: Beat-Frog
Genre: Science Fiction, Action
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 5th

Summary:
10 years ago, the Mushi started to appear. They would attach to people and give them powers and abilities while feeding off their dreams. Once their dreams were devoured, the Mushi would be fully grown and the host would die. If the Mushi is killed once they're attached to a host, then the host's mind is shattered. To keep this under control, the government has created a special agency to study, control and combat the Mushi so they don't run amok.

Personal Thoughts:
The promo art and the premise is certainly nice enough. Depending on the ability of my Japanese to keep up this one could be a shoe-in. Who the hell is Beat-Frog though?


skygirls.jpg
Sky Girls TV
http://www.skygirls.konami.jp/
Studio: JCStaff
Genre: Science Fiction, Mecha
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July 5th

Summary:
Worm-like aliens have invaded the Earth and left the population of the world completely decimated. I guess that's as good a reason as any to turn to the loli brigade to combat these space menaces. Alternate retelling of an OVA by the same name.

Personal Thoughts:
I love JCStaff and all, but I think there's a line somewhere that needs to be drawn and skintight exo-suit wearing lolis is probably very close to it. Hell, I don't even like mecha.


potemayo.jpg
Potemayo
http://www.potemayo.com/
Studio: JCStaff
Genre: Comedy
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 6th

Summary:
Based on a series of 4-koma comics mostly about a pair of magical... uh... witch things and the people that they inflict themselves upon. It's best to think of it like a more nonsensical Pita-Ten.

Personal Thoughts:
JCStaff is apparently eager to jump on the moe craze. Ah well, I'm sure I'll bite for at least an episode or two. And let's not forget that the last 4 koma show JC Staff adapted was Azumanga Daioh.


higurashi.jpg
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai
http://www.oyashirosama.com/web/news/kai.htm
Studio: Studio DEEN
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 6th

Summary:
In the pleasant little villa of Hinamizawa sleeps the ancient curse of Lord Oyashiro. Murders keep taking place, but is it madness, or some ulterior plot driving the killers?

Personal Thoughts:
I wasn't a huge fan of the first series, so *shrug*. It got a kick in the budget though and a new set of character designs, so at least that complaint with the first series is taken care of.


moetan.jpg
Moetan
http://www.ink-chan.com/
Studio: Actus
Genre: Comedy, Magical Girl
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 8th

Summary:
Moetan is a serious of comics and audio tapes for learning English, typically filled to the brim with otaku jokes and Full Metal Jacket quotes. From this comes a magical girl series.

Personal Thoughts:
Wow, they're really hitting the ol' moe series pretty hard this season. I could barely stomach the Engrish in Beck and Black Lagoon, I'm not certain my mind could handle a show centered around it.


zetsubo.JPG
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
http://www.starchild.co.jp/special/zetsubou/
Studio: SHAFT
Genre: Comedy
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July 8th

Summary:
The adventures of a suicidal teacher who just can't seem to finish the job and his class full of strange and wacky girls.

Personal Thoughts:
I'm a whore for SHAFT so this is definitely getting a healthy dose of my attention for at least a few episodes. This is pretty much the exact same staff as showed up for Negima!?, so if you enjoyed the comedy aspects of that, it's probably a good bet that you'll have fun here as well. Now they just need to break out of their "wacky teacher and a bunch of wacky girls" rut.


zero.jpg
Zero no Tsukaima ~Futatsuki no Kishi~
http://www.zero-tsukaima.com/
Studio: JCStaff
Genre: Comedy, Fantasy
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 8th

Summary:
The continuing adventures of a boy accidently summoned to a fantasy kingdom and bound to a failure of a mage... only now we know that he's a legendary warrior, and she's a legendary magician.

Personal Thoughts:
The first season didn't exactly blow me away, but I have a weakness for fantasy, so this is almost a definite. The novels are mostly just softcore porn, but if they get into some of the later stuff... it should be a fun ride. Hell, if they even just get to the busty elf, it should at least be worth watching.


mononoke.jpg
Mononoke
http://www.mononoke-anime.com/
Studio: Toei
Genre: Supernatural
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July 12th

Summary:
Spiritual successor to Ayakashi, and given the similar titles, it will probably be more or less the same thing. In other words, a few short 3-4 episode classic Japanese supernatural stories.

Personal Thoughts:
I didn't really watch much of Ayakashi so I doubt my interest will be much higher for this one. *shrug*


shigurui.jpg
Shigurui
http://www.wowow.co.jp/anime/shigurui/
Studio: Madhouse
Genre: Drama, Historical
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 19th

Summary:
During an ancient martial arts tournament, the lord becomes bored with it and orders the next two participants to fight to the death. A man with one arm, and a man who cannot see step into the ring, and the history of the two is shown as they begin to fight to a vicious end.

Personal Thoughts:
The manga is very VERY explicit and violent and gory, and while I highly doubt that they'll go to quite the same level in the show, just the propensity for organ spilling and general bloodshed both attracts and repulses me. We'll see whether they play up the gore or the action.


baccano.jpg
Baccano!
http://www.baccano.jp/
Studio: Brains-Base
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July 26th

Summary:
"Baccano" roughly translates as "irritating noise" in Italian, and takes place in a 1930s American setting where alchemists, demons, vampires, thieves and other pulp fiction cliches and stories all begin to come together.

Personal Thoughts:
The screener from awhile ago is pretty slick, so this could be a pretty interesting show, although it's coming from a relatively unknown studio and going for the pulp approach is always iffy. Still, if the show lives up to the preview, then I've got no complaints.


tokyomajin.jpg
Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuchou Tou Kenbu Hen
http://www.majin.tv/
Studio: AIC Spirits
Genre: Action, Supernatural
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July 27th

Summary:
The continuing adventures of Hiyuu and crowd in fighting the evil zombies and monsters who are turning their city into a slaughterhouse.

Personal Thoughts:
Despite the ups and downs of the first season, especially the incomprehensibly bad last episode, I did enjoy it for the most part, so it'll be good to see Hiyuu and Aoi back.


nanatsuiro.jpg
Nanatsuiro Drops
http://www.nanatsuiro.com/
Studio: Studio Barcelona
Genre: Magical Girl
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers July ???

Summary:
Tsuwabuki Masaharu was a normal kid in school... until he drank a magical potion that turns him into a stuffed sheep at night. Now he needs to collect magical droplets to restore his normal form with the help of a magical girl classmate.

Personal Thoughts:
This was a hentai game? Are you shitting me? Thank you... next!


votoms.jpg
Armored Trooper VOTOMS Pailsen Files
http://www.votoms.net/pailsen/
Studio: Sunrise
Genre: Mecha
Information Links: ANN Entry
Premiers July ???

Summary:
The long running, never ending VOTOMS (Vertical One-man Tank for Offense & ManeuverS) saga's latest addition. The series is generally known for being relatively low-tech science fiction and a lot grittier than most other mecha series. As for this particular incarnation, the century long war is finally over, but the secrets that Chirico learned still remain and could throw the galaxy back into conflict.

Personal Thoughts:
Serious Mecha? Sunrise? Bah says I. BAH!


dokuro.jpg
Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-Chan
http://www.bin-kan.com/
Studio: Hal Film Maker
Genre: Comedy
Information Links: ANN Entry, Animesuki Thread
Premiers August 11th

Summary:
In the future, a man named Sakura creates the fountain of youth, but because he's a lolicon, he freezes all women at the age of 12. God is angry with this, so he sends angels back in time to kill Sakura, except one of them decides to try to cure Sakura of his lolita fetish which he has yet to develop... but she still can't help herself from occasionally viciously clubbing his brains out.

Personal Thoughts:
Definitely loved the OVAs. Hopefully a full series can keep up the same energy.


===========================================

Conclusion, I like that there's no Gonzo. I don't like how all the JCStaff shows appear to mostly be trashy fanservice affairs. There's not really a ton that excites me, but there are at least a couple shows that will probably be decent enough. Who knows. *shrug*


SPRING SHIT

All the Spring promo vids released as of late March
http://www.datorrents.com/download.asp?id=19224&name=Spring%202007%20Series%20PVs%20and%20CMs.torrent
03/28 11:00 Hitohira
Xebec
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmeGY5ilgk0

Romantic school comedy. Girl who is extremely shy and has trouble speaking to people ends up joining the drama club. Hijinks ensue.

04/01 08:00 Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Gainax
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jC_lSGooF1Y

Strangely enough, outside of the fact that it's mecha, almost nothing is known about it.

04/01 10:00 Hayate the Combat Butler!
Synergy
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F-1rKcADes

Romance comedy. Guy falls on rough times, so kidnaps a rich girl to ransom her off, but she ends up taking pity on him and paying his debts if he'll become her butler in exchange.

04/01 25:30 Heroic Age
Xebec
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKn_rFlbZ6c

Sci-Fi/mecha. Heavily based on Greek Mythology. Humanity is threatened, so Space Princess Deinarra leaves on a journey to save it, and ends up finding a mysterious boy named Age.

04/01 26:00 Seto no Hanayome
Gonzo

A drowning boy is saved by a mermaid and is forced to marry her to save both their lives. Hijinks ensue.

04/02 25:30Touka Gettan
Studio DEEN

Spinoff of Moonlight Lady... some hentai. Main character has amnesia. Sorry, I don't know enough about Moonlight Lady to really know much more.

04/02 25:30 El Cazador de la Bruja

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9d90Zhza28
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vcKPf2-YBo

Action adventure in a wild west setting. Looks pretty generic though. A girl accused of murder is chased by a bounty hunter, and when caught, the two decide to travel together to find the secret of some treasure. Same staff as Noir and Madlax, so there might be some substance here. And the OP is by Savage Genius <3

04/02 26:30 Idol Master XENOGLOSSIA
Sunrise
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCDE0_lVexE

Loosely based off the Idolmaster series for XBox (idol raising sim)... only with mecha. Young girls have to learn to pilot their mecha (iDOLs). Killer VA cast though.

04/03 25:00 Kissdum -ENGAGE planet-
Satelight

Mecha. Space operatic looking. Defensive organization created to protect the world from hostile aliens.

04/03 25:26 CLAYMORE
Madhouse

Jump series. Loosely based on Arthurian legends. Female half-demon knights hunt monsters that eat people that only they can fight.

04/03 25:30 Over Drive
Xebec

Sports show. About biking I believe.

04/03 26:00 Oh Edo! Rocket
Madhouse

Fireworks kid is approached by a beautiful girl whose dream is to ride a rocket to reach the moon. Hijinks ensue.

04/03 26:08 Saint Beast ~Kouin Jojoshi Tenshitan~
Tokyo Kids

Prequel to previous series. Fantasy sentai or something. If you haven't watched the other 18 Saint Beast shows, you probably won't be interested in this one.

04/03 26:10 Shining Tears X Wind
Studio DEEN
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhi5DjCzeK0

Adaptation of Shining Tears game. Fantasy action/adventure.

04/03 26:15 Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku wo~Youkosou-gumi Ryou e~
Artland

Wow, I think this is the first H game adaptation on the list. Romance, comedy. Guy shares a dorm with 5 girls, except the school and dorm is slowly emptying completely.

04/03 26:30 Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS
Seven Arcs

Fantasy action/fighting. Sequel series. 12 years later (don't quote me on that). Nanoha and crew are adults and have their own squadron of mages and fighters to command.

04/03 26:43 Wellber no Monogatari ~Sisters of Wellber~
Trans Arts Co / Production IG

Medieval Europe. Princess of a country is forced to marry a threatening country's prince, and ends up stabbing him and running away, joining up with a female thief in the process.

04/03 28:15 Shinkyouku Soukai Polyphonica
T.O Entertainment, Inc.

Music based (as much as... say... Rave was) fantasy adventure. Guy summons and contracts a powerful flame haired spirit. Romance, comedy, adventure, etc ensue.

04/04 25:20 Nagasarete Airantou
Feel

Guy runs away from home and ends up as a castaway on an island full of powerful amazons, the vast majority of which have never seen a man before in their lives. Hijinks ensue. (PS, Horie Yui is singing the OP and ED and voicing the female lead <3). Super special fanservice bonus.
nagasareteairantouv02c1fp6.png

04/04 25:45 Romeo x Juliet
Gonzo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7Mgm6qsAEs

Yeah, I'm not entirely certain what Gonzo's thinking either, but I'm pretty sure I don't remember Juliet fighting Romeo in a collapsing sky castle. But anyway, it's Romeo and Juliet.

04/04 25:50 Gigantic Formula
Brains Base / Bandai

The premise here is awful. The new development of mecha has countries building them to fight in competitions to take their place in the world, and Japan's of course is pilotted by a pair of kids. On the other hand, I'm told the people doing the mecha design for the show are legends.

04/05 23:30 Koutetsu Shin Jeeg
ACTAS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3gewCqMFMw

Spinoff of some 70s mecha series. So... SUPAH GIANT ROBOOOOOOOO. Protecting Earth, etc.

04/05 25:25 Darker than BLACK-Kuro no Keiyakusha-
Bones
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Gc0zSN_D34

10 years ago, Hell's Gate appeared in Tokyo and people started developing psychic powers which ate away at their humanity. People now compete over trying to break into Hell's Gate and discover its secrets. It's a Bones thriller, so it'll probably be pretty quality.

04/05 26:15 Koutetsu Sangokushi
Picture Magic

As Claymore is to Arthurian legends, Koutetsu Sangokushi is to Romance of the Three Kingdoms. That's a little disingenious, but it works.

04/06 17:30 Kami-chama Karin
Satelight

FYI 'chama' is a saccharinely sweet way of saying 'sama'. An orphaned girl is given a ring that lets her become a goddess and does all the usual magical girl things. It seems to me to be stereotypical magical girl tripe, but I'm told it should be at least decent.

04/07 07:25 Kaze no Shoujo Emily
TMS Entertainment

Slice of life drama about a girl sent to live with relatives when her parents die. This looks like it's based on some book or part of the "we animate literature" series.

04/07 08:06 Seirei no Moribito
Production IG
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waSwndpzFSU

Fantasy adventure. The story of a boy whose body holds the egg of a Water Spirit and his female bodyguard as they're pursued by monsters and Imperials.

04/07 09:00 Saiunkoku Monogatari New Series
Madhouse

Sequel series. Ultra shoujo. Girl joins royal court. Heals the souls of all the nobles within or something.

04/07 17:30 Lovely Complex
Toei

Romantic comedy. Really short guy and really tall girl form a comedy duo and help eachother through life an fall in love.

04/07 18:00 Terra e...
Tokyo Kids

Sci Fi. Remake of an old movie. Humanity is ruled by some crazy AI that controls the birth of the race, and it has now started creating a new race entirely that longs to return to Earth.

04/07 18:30 Tsubasa Chronicle Season 3
Beetrain

Final season of TRC. Hooray?

04/07 25:30 Victorian Romance Emma The 2nd Act
Asia-Do

Sequel series based on the Emma novel.

04/08 24:00 Lucky Star
Kyoto Animation

Based on a series of really boring 4 panel comics about school girls. Azumanga they certainly ain't. It's Kyoto Animation though, so it's never healthy to count them out. This is a vast departure from their usual faire though.

04/08 25:30 sola
Nomad

Romance. Harem. Guy goes out to sketch the sky one day, and meets a girl who changes his life.

04/08 25:30 Bokurano
Gonzo

Kids volunteer to test a game where they defend the earth in giant robots. Then one of them dies and they have no idea how to leave the game. I'm told this is a lot of mecha and psychological stuff so... if you're into that stuff... *shrug* Then again, it is Gonzo.

04/11 27:38 Kaze no Stigma
Gonzo

What's up Gonzo? Making a complete Shana knockoff? Okay. That's great. Fantasy. Guy who was supposed to inherit a flame sword loses it to his female rival. Fastforward 4 years, and he returns a master of wind attacks, but suspected of murder.

04/12 25:25 Ookiku Furikabutte
A-1 Pictures

Sports anime. Baseball. *shrug*

04/12 25:55 Princess Resurrection
Madhouse
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i11QzZLM6GE

Fantasy. Goth girl with the power to raise the dead fights werewolves and other things. It's entirely too bright and too rose filled for me to take it seriously as a thriller.

04/28 late night The Skullman
Bones
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBIUHLh1ne4

Batman? Is that you? Well, it's a bit darker and more monstery than Batman, but that's what it makes me think of immediately for whatever reason. Vigilante style action show with Skullman fighting evil using his mutant powers.


On with ye!

    I feel as though the nobility and kindness of man is being trampled
    Those who show their strength lose their grace
    Covered in dirt and lies, isn't it a vexing site?
    Let's live more strongly, fiercely and tougher
    Let's walk straight
    The Wind is against us
    Move, move, move, those with a guilty conscience, move aside
    Light up the town of riffraff
    Move, make way, truth is coming through
    The era of justice will come
    There are songs of hope too
    I would happily sacrifice my life for this world

    UFOTable (2x2=Shinobuden, Coyote Ragtime)

    School comedy. The year is 2035 and a decline in birth rates has forced school after school to close. Manabi is a new transfer student and is determined to make life exciting.
    Lots of high profile VAs involved, and UFOTable had a perfect batting record with me before CRS, so it'll probably be pretty good. I'll never get used to UFOTable's marshmallow faces though.

    It's rather adorable.

    Gankutsuou is rather good, but you will get a migraine from the first 3-4 episodes because of the stylistic depthless textures.

    Excellent, I'm glad to find something to watch besides Death Note. Hopefully I can find the DVDs somewhere. Which reminds me, is the dub good, or to stick with subs?

    I'm really dissapointed that Negima?! hasn't really made any progress for a while. I'd really really like to see them cover the Kyoto and Tournament arcs, but its just been treading water for the last few episodes.

    I'll probably start watching Naruto when it starts back next week and continue to watch Geass, Death Note and Kanon. I'll try a few of these new ones as well.

    I spotted SAC box set for $60Au the other day, so I might stop buy and grab it since I've never seen it.

    And now, with more information on the mecha series, it's...um...me.

    -GR- Giant Robo: I haven't had the time to watch this yet, but I've heard nothing but good things from those who have (the first episode was, for a time, streaming live on the website). The most interesting thing is that the production company is trying to push it to both Japanese and English audiences, with much of the website and promo material being in English.

    The problem here is that the Giant Robo OVA from a few years ago is widely regarded as a masterpiece, so the odds of this show actually being better are pretty nil.

    Dancougar Nova: The original Dancougar was sort of a bridge between Super Robot-type shows like your Mazinkaisers and your Big Os, and Real Robot shows, like your Gundams and your FMP!s. A team called the Aggressive Beast Squadron has to learn to work together and defend America from an invading army originating from, well, Hell. A big focus on this series was human emotios, namely anger. Anger was treated as a good thing, as the ultimate expression of humanity, and was the fuel for many of Dancougar's attacks.

    Nova is a sequel with a pretty strong cast and crew behind it and great mecha designs. My only problems are the sparse information on the plot and the genericriffic character designs. But then I look at the original designs and...I feel a bit better about them.

    REIDEEN: A remake of one of Yoshiyuki Tomino's first mecha series, which actually had a "remake" in the form of RahXephon. This series seems to have about as much to do with the original as Rah did.

    Having seen the raw of the first episode, all I can say is: Ugh. Terrible. Absolutely terrible. Not only does it look and feel like a bad RahXephon knock-off, but the CGI on the robots is absolutely terrible. The designs are ugly, the animation is bad, and there's really no reason to watch. From the people who brought you IGPX. 'Nuff said.

    And while not in the winter, people should be looking forward to Kotetsushin Jeeg, a sequel to an old Go Nagai classic about cyborgs and motorcycles, featuring good, CGI-free animation and somewhat of a Haruhi voice cast reunion. Should be awesome.

    There just wasn't anything there.

    They do the generic robot anime thing too well, it's like watching someone animate a Mekton sourcebook. But with tarted-up, colorful mecha that looked like Voltron raped Sandrock and knocked it up.

    I should rephrase that. It's not that nothing important happened; there were just several little bits that were dragged out a lot longer than they needed to be. In the soul society arc they tended to mush all the extraneous stuff (don kaonjiwhatever, etc.) into single episodes, so that the rest of them didn't have that sort of thing in there.

    [spoiler:ae12355656]The eating thing was the most obvious one; that took up literally a minute of the episode just of the shot of her eating, not including the bits around it. I was getting flashbacks to that one scene with Kaoru in Evangelion. The other one was everyone walking down the hallway in the school near the end. I wouldn't call it filler per se, but it seems to me that they needed to fill an extra minute or so, and stuck that in there. Maybe it was in the manga too, I dunno.[/spoiler:ae12355656]

    Don't get me wrong, the episode was pretty good; those things just leapt out at me.

    Pretty much all the conversation was there, but it was only one or two panels. I went back and checked to make sure that my observation about the classroom was right, and saw it - just one or two frames of all of them in the hallway, with like...20 bubbles around them.

    Its Manga time! (Mostly)

    Anyway, Love Hina is finishing up nicely and a couple of twists that I never saw come into realization [spoiler:7b34136ac4] Namely Hakura and Seta and thier history [/spoiler:7b34136ac4]. Also the love between Naru and Keitaro is shaping up nicely and its fun to see them go through the process.

    Love Roma should be a hit. Its story its quite nicely done and it does have a lot of meaning to it even though its 5 volume long. The 5th volume is being release on the 27th and I can't wait.

    xxxHolic 9 is also being released on the 1st of May so I am interested in how the story is going. I believe it it is 10 volumes long, can anyone confirm this?

    Anime:

    Azumanga daioh is finished. Its a very good ending, sad but still good. I wish the creator would create another part of the series.

    I started Excel Saga and the first episode was hilarious. Killing the Manga creator not once but twice is quite amusing and funny. Plus the main guy throwing the Excel Saga Manga into the paper shreder and the first part where they show the signed document where the creator said he wouldn't whine was also top class.

    Gankutsuou is great

    super robot wars anime is terrible

    that is all
    While that may well be, a quick GIS suggests that watching Gankutsou wouldn't be fun, or likely even pleasant. Ergo I don't care if it's great, I only care if I'm going to enjoy it, which it doesn't look like I would unless I was shrooming. Meanwhile, I've enjoyed what I've seen of SRW. It's mindless and fun, and less stressful than the games.

    Well, one is a drama with unique art design, a ridiculous budget, great characters and a compelling story.

    The other has terrible animation, terrible fight scenes, and a pretty slow paced and uninteresting plot to boot. Somehow the game felt more compelling with just talking heads. This is a terrible studio, you know, with very little on their track record besides pokemon and utawarerumono (which was mediocre at best).

    The only thing they have in common is crappy CG robots, which are in about two episodes of Gankutsuou.

    I'm not the one who felt compared to draw a comparisson between the two, I'm just saying that looking at the GIS results, Gankutsuou will cause me notable physical discomfort, and also that I don't care. You're not going to convince me to like Gankutsuou and hate SRW.

    Well, that's not the intention.

    Look guy, I like SRW too, okay? I tried to be enthusiastic about the show at first but by the second episode when they were already super deforming all the characters I was already having my doubts. Even when the war finally started...hell, that was the episode when I called it quits. It's a mindless mecha show, and you know what, I would be okay with that if it didn't look like shit, if the action scenes weren't shit, if the characters didn't look like shit.

    I'm not saying watching one show and dropping the other is some sort of if/then clause. Give gankutsuou a chance rather than writing it off for its style. A lot of the reasons I hate the SRW anime are technical: the animation studio is just terrible at what it does and it isn't very entertaining to watch.

    If you want a mech show that's actually half decent and doesn't even bother with the CG crap just watch Code Geass.

    I'm just taking a guess, having not read the other posts, that we are recommending Anime.

    I recently obtained Elfen Lied and Scryed and I really, really am enjoying both. I really went off anime for a few years after DBGT literally killed my love off. Add to that the lameness which is the last 100 or so episodes of Naruto or basically anything before or after the Gaara Vs Lee fight and yeah...i gave up on it.

    Scryed is really fun, I find myself having to move onto the next episode quickly but the powers are a bit lame. Who is born with the ability to summon a giant gun out of thin air? Or use watermelons for teleportation. I've not finished the series yet so I'm just assuming they create matter and what matter they create is based off physical and psychological conditions.

    Elfen Lied, its gory as fuck and sometimes I found myself wishing she'd really stop killing some of the people. 7 really didn't deserve it. But again its something where I had to keep watching every episode.

    The first episode was available streaming to both Japanese and American audiences for a short time on the official website, much like REIDEEN. I hope they do the same thing for Kotetsushin Jeeg.

    From what I know of people who have seen it, though, it's a straight-up action show, unlike the OVA which was basically a giant celebration of 1950's-era anime.

    Also, I gotta support Violent here. I know people who can't watch Gankutsuou. It physically makes them ill with all the swirls and colors and all.
