    I seem to remember hearing that Negima is basically what happens when publishers demanded another Love Hina but the writer wanted to make a shonen action manga, so he made the latter and disguised it as the former.

    I remember Negima being okay, who knows how much that's some nostalgia.

    I watched Negima recently, it was okay, but with a lot of problems.

    I think that's a series where the show only covered a small part of the manga then did its own thing, while the manga goes for much longer and is much better.

    Kind of like FMA before we got Brotherhood.

    You should pick it up again at some point but I understand, it's huge of an exhausting show to power through because nobody is ever safe and nothing is static

    Hey so if Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate Plus go on sale (or even if they don't ) you guys definitely should consider getting em

    Recently finished Hate Plus, all of it, and I really like how Christine Love writes characters. They're straight up visual novels, but no porn or anything. Pretty bleak at times, but all in all two excellent stories with solid characters.

    Love Hina is better than most 'harem' shows but considering how awful harem shows are that says almost nothing. It's still really bad. If you want a good show that uses a similar format and premise watch Ouran Highschool Host Club which is goddamn hilarious and has really fun main characters and-ohmygodisitafullmoonihaveanimeopinions.

    So, more thoughts on Project M.

    After the initial hump of dealing with the weird idiosyncrasies of this being designed for tourney play, I'm having a pretty good time with it. The *new* characters are pretty fun, and while I wouldn't say all of the movepool changes are for the better, mostly their pretty good. Having to manually trigger that swing on Ike's dash is messing me up something fierce though.

    Still bummed that they took out almost all of the stages I like. Is there any way to mess with the files to get the old maps back? I miss Spear Pillar.

    Also Ivysaur is a beast, true facts.

    I don't understand

    was pink or blue the one that slowed time

    I liked that one

    the one that flipped the stage can fuck right off

    Kinda useless to decry people for not watching a show when it isnt even available in said deaf ears territory.

    I started watching soul eater

    the kinda comicy aesthetic belies that this show is fucking DARK sometimes

    Cilla BlackCilla Black Priscilla!!! Registered User regular
    Although it does some annoying things too

    Like I could live my whole life without ever hearing another anime male soliloque about how the definition of love for a lady is to protect her

    Ouran actually.takes some steps to subvert that, but only half heartedly.

    there's one really dark moment with crona but the ending goes the complete opposite way and doubles down on the zanyness and ends really positively

    My favorite bit in Soul Eater is
    Crazy Maka fighting Crona, because she is unhinged and Crona just cannot deal.

    I'm really hoping those get Steam Sale'd. I adored don't take it personally, babe, it just ain't your story and Digital: A Love Story, but haven't gotten around to the Hates yet.

    Be warned that there is some.... unfortunate language used regarding Haruhi's transvestite father.

    I haven't touched the dub, but don't remember the sub having any issues. I thought they treat the issue fairly well, honestly.

    I only watched the dub because I couldn't imagine Tamaki being voiced by anyone other than Edward Elric, but the t-word does get thrown around in it.
