Monogatari: Second Season is a great one to watch as well if you don't mind a lot of talking and supernatural subjects. The most recent arc has some great character interaction...also, a cool new opening:



Compare it to an OP from a season ago with an arc involving the same character.


I would honestly suggest watching the xxxMonogatari series from Bakemonogatari (The first season) on.

The contents of these words intrigue me. You sure know how to sell a show. Space Brothers? I'll give it a look-see.

Aww, c'mon, at least read what I said. This show doesn't actually play to the usual anime conventions. If you just enjoy well-written and thrilling drama, you'll enjoy this show.

TTGL is one of my favourites. What's so great about it is that it makes fun of itself, anime in general, and shounen manga in particular. You should start watching Kill La Kill if you liked TTGL, it's only 1 episode in but the same two guys wrote and directed both series. Kill La Kill is just ridiculous over-the-top action, and yes that's even considering how ridiculous and over-the-top most anime series are. It's on Crunchyroll too, it's being simulcasted (streamed online on the same date it airs on TV).

Which character is that? Attack On Titan was one of the most enjoyable rides I've had in a while. It does for the monster/mech genre of anime what The Walking Dead comics did for the zombie genre. By that, I mean I love the way it focuses on how the environment and setting affect the characters moreso than just showing constant action. It's a nice change of pace.

Having said that, a lot of people I introduced to it have said the pacing mid-series really bothered them. I disagreed, but I could see where they were coming from. Sometimes in the show there'll be 2-3 episodes of story build-up with not much action in between, but that's what I love about it. Oh god though, so many inner monologues.

Still need to get around to starting this. I watched the first episode of Nekomonogatari last week. I'm gonna wait until I finish that to jump into Monogatari: Second Season. I finished Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari ages ago. Oh god though so much perverse implications and visual innuendo. Sometimes I need to take a break from these series for a while because of the overload in Araragi's sexual tension.

I tend to avoid ongoing anime. I like to watch an entire series in one sitting. I'll keep an eye on it though and see when it finishes up. Sounds interesting.
Oh, also, I tend to really enjoy very strange anime. Mysterious Girlfriend X being a good example. It's really really weird, but it's a nice story.

Ah man, yeah Araragi is a bit of an overload sometimes. Although, the references they just randomly throw in to other things is great.

Monogatari loves wordplay. Honestly, its great at making a visual spectacle out of mundane conversations about nothing.


Oh, the Gurren Lagaan guys have made a new anime called Kill La Kill!

Yeah, Kill La Kill is great fun, just about to watch the second episode of it there now. I've been eagerly awaiting it since it was announced. Other nice ones to watch this season are the new series of Hajime No Ippo and the second season of Kuroko No Basuke, which are both being simulcasted on Crunchyroll. If you enjoyed Sword Art Online, Log Horizon is a another series with basically the same premise, but it seems more focused on going into the in-depth on the workings of RPG's/MMO's rather than just being a normal-guy-thrown-into-MMO-world like SAO is.

I know what you mean, it can be a pain waiting for the next episode if something is so good that you want to marathon it all the way through. I've had some good times following shows week-by-week though. Space Brothers was one show I marathoned when it was still at episode 64, and since then it's a sucky feeling when you wait the whole week for the next episode and then you get 17/18 minutes of original content. It's still worth it, though.

I apologise for derailing the Randomness thread with anime discussion, but it had been unposted in for a couple weeks before I posted. I suppose it doesn't really warrant a new thread every time someone brings it up, it's not talked about that often.

So, Renegade_Turner, if I may ask, who are you? I've heard of you before. You've been brought up in discussions, with people saying stuff like "when he comes back." You have a ridiculous number of posts and have been registered for a long time. So, what's your story?

If I may attempt to answer that in his stead, I'd say our ol' Ren is the Grandmaster Arch-Troll.
Keep an eye on him.
He'll mess ya up.

How bizarre a question. I joined the forum about 10 years ago and used to play up to the fact that I was some arrogant infallible being who could never be bested in a battle of wits (or lack thereof) because I felt inadequate in real life and had to compensate for it somewhere. I still feel inadequate, but I'm less petty. :P

That was the most jarring change of tone from page to page I've seen in a while.
And that's including Assaultman's distended ascii anus shenanigans.
