Oh man, I saw some of Yugioh 5D's yesterday morning for the first time and that's like the worse series known to man.  Do kids get any good cartoons anymore?  My dad's gf's grandkids were watching load after steaming load of pure crap on Friday.  At least I never caught them watching Yugioh 5D's.

I watched Queen's Blade the other day.  Every character on there could have been referred to as Tits McGee.  Nothing but hooters, hooters everywhere, and it wasn't shy about the nipplage.  Consequently, I don't remember if there was a story aside from some tournament to decide who'd be queen the next term.

I would've gone with "Hooters McGuffy" myself, but that's just my call.

Watching more FMA: Brotherhood and forgot to mention my ire at having the openning song changed already.  It had just grown on me and then *BAM!* new songs.  Not that it should affect the airing of the dub at all since they usually choose one pair of songs and stick with it.  But the show is getting really good.

Watching Kemonozume I think it's called.

There's titties and sex but the animation style is so not the norm that it doesn't really distract you so much.

I was thinking about screen capping that myself.

That's just the old "omg I see her face everywhere I look" piece of business.

It just happens to be on a monkey eating walnuts in that frame.

Claymore's ending wasn't as bad as I'd feared.  I'd still do Undine out of all of them, but not when she's in freaky muscle-girl mode.  :P

Watching Saiyuki:Reload in sub mode.  Sorry, the dub actors are just trying too hard - not that I'm blaming it on them because they're doing what the director wants.  Also almost done watching the Saiyuki live-action musical on YouTube.  Bob Fosse Kougaiji.... :laugh:

Did they ever make more claymore anime?

Or is it still unfinished?

I heard they're waiting for the manga instead of going out on their own.

Saiyuki Musical Cast: http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s56/c0d3v3r0n1c4/Live%20Journal/DOA-1.jpg

The guy who plays Gojyo is really cute - he's making a goofy face in the picture.  And I would have switched Kougaiji's & Dokugakuji's casting appearancewise, but Kou's part is heavier on the dancing which the other guy didn't seem as skilled at. The unison singing tends to be flat, but maybe that was just this performance that they did for the DVD recording - no audience.  Goku's actor is very agile and can do backflips.  I'd have paid money to see it.   Look up Saiyuki Musical on YouTube - it's split into 13 parts & the finale.

Don't know about any more Claymore.  Like Hellsing, it followed the manga for a while, then went off on its own tangent.  I guess it would either have to be an author-approved OVA or find some common thread to pick up in the storyline.

My hair is doing a Gojyo right at the crown in the back today and I have no hairspray at work.   I tried water, but it kerboinged right back up again when dry.  At least I look taller.  :P

I felt like HD with the remote stuck on scan today.  Found out the hard way that a 16 oz. strong coffee after taking Zoloft is a Very Bad Idea.  Ho-lee fuck.   :scared:

Most recent anime I've watched was Kite: Liberation (did not like it, totally went against the original) and I've been watching Last Exile. I like Exile alright so far, but fuck am I tired of cliffhanger endings.

Yeah...let's hear it for underage rape!  :joe:

...and I've been watching Last Exile. I like Exile alright so far, but fuck am I tired of cliffhanger endings.

I need to rewatch it, as it's been a few years, but I remember it being really good.

Has anyone here watched the Gundam 00 show that's airing on SciFi SyFy?  The storyline as I've read it sounds much like Gundam Wing.

The first one had a good bit of that, I'll admit. I honestly don't remember that in the second one. And WTF kind of ending is that? Fucking stupid.

I've gone back and forth about either refusing to ever watch Gundam, or getting around to it. If I do, what should I watch? Nah, fuck it, I'm never watching Gundam (even though I used to have a ton of MS cards)

The thing I hate most about Gundam is that it's nothing but a whole lot of depressing, preachy bullshit. "Boo hoo! War is hell! The human race is inherently evil! Wah wah wah!"

I'm obviously not a Gundam fan, because for me, G Gundam is the greatest thing they ever did.

And that's all I want from them. Another Gundam series that looks at all the Gundams that came before it, says, "Fuck all that shit," and does something completely different. Something fun and entertaining that forgoes all the conflicted protagonists and political claptrap.

And focus on martial arts over firearms.

Fuck it, I just want another G Gundam.

You know, as dumb as all those are, they're still better than most of the generic shit found in stuff like Seed and 00. And I'm confident a new G Gundam wouldn't have anything so ridiculous.

This upcoming series, Gundam Unicorn, at least takes place in the Universal Century continuity, so it has that going for it. Still, I doubt it'll bring me back into the fold.

They already did a Unicorn: http://mahq.net/mecha/gundam/g/fuunsaiki.jpg

I actually find some of the "generics" to be more interesting. I had a love affair with Leo's when they were out (though I barely watched an episode). Something about them made me happy inside. From G, anything Death Army was all I cared about. Stupid giant heads with gundam's on top of them? PAH! More Death Army, please. I haven't really payed much attention otherwise. Oh, I also like the Guntanks.

Gundam X.

I enjoyed Gundam, but I hated the UC stuff. UC was just them trying to retell Amuro vs. Char x number of ways. The first suffered from poor animation and a complete assortment of bad filler episodes. The 08th MS Team was just horrid, and nothing but a Shiro Amada lovefest. The fucker was an evident plot device, defeating x amount of pros including an Ace that wasted everyone else, then sacrificed his life for the love Shiro and the green haired chick would have? War in a pocket I enjoyed, simply for the ending. Poor Bernie. :( 0083 was decent, but towards the end it suffered from just phail. Zeta... Camile was a bitchy Amuro, and even Amuro did a better job. ZZ... let's not mention that. Char's Counterattack was only good for Amuro winning and finally shutting Char up (though apparently Char is the antagonist in Unicorn. Boo.) F91 was good... but nothing noteworthy. V was... the same thing as Zeta but with bigger newtype stuff.

The Alt Universe stuff was overall good. G Gundam had some wacky side-designs, but keep in mind they probably each only have 2-3 minutes of screen time before being destroyed. The series needed an American release schedule and perhaps some fight stretching ala DBZ to be more successful, especially in the US.

Gundam Wing remains a favorite of mine. It has it's ew points, but the mecha just worked and the action scenes (yeah, some repetition) were good. I gotta make my own edit of the series when I have the time and a hard drive for it like I did with the St*r WarzzZZ original trilogy. The movie was also ok. This series really needs a new addition, but Bandai won't.

Gundam X is my favorite series. It has everything I love from every other Gundam... and great character animation. Plus, it has American R&B for the closer. It's the only Gundam series I have on my laptop and I often just watch a Random episode. It's a shame they prematurely cancelled it, it deserved a good closer. Also, another line that needs more to it.

Turn A... eh, it never interested me. I know the whole story, which turned me off even further. I guess watch if you like cross dressers and the MOONLIGHT BUTTERFLY!!!

Gundam Seed... just avoid it. Mwu was badass, and then they ruined him, too.

Gundam 00 I've honestly not seen much. I wanted to watch it on scifi but I always missed it, they never replayed it, and it wasn't on demand. Now I can't find a torrent with the dub, just the sub, which I don't really like watching if there is a good dub.

Unicorn I won't be watching because the main villian is Char. Jesus fuck, Tomino. Invent someone else.

I enjoyed Gundam Wing for what it was...and it would have been better had it been condensed by approximately half.  But aside from G Gundam, I've been wholly unable to gen up interest in any other Gundam show.  But G Gundam...man, that was a lot of fun.  Another show that could have used some condensing, but still.

They both either needed condensing, or just stretched out further to explore the finer aspects of the show. Gundam Wing especially, I feel, needed much more of the Gundams pulling OPs on the Earth, including gay Quatre and his Man Corps. Then we barely see Heero interacting in class with Relena and yet we see way too much Gundams vs Leos. The series really needed much deeper backstories of not just the 5 pilots, Trieze and Zechs, and other people. Hilde, Duo's woman, got royaly screwed on the backstory idea. :stickdance:

GUNDAM X TOO! If just for the character scenes, they're so well animated. The story is great too, post-apocalyptic Gundam.

Fine, but I don't like it when I watch something without an ending. Groan.

Also, from Wing, I really enjoyed the desert suits, I don't remember or care to look up what they are called.
