Gurren Lagann was a lot of fun, but I'd hesitate to use it as a bellwether for all future anime.

All will be irrelevant to me with the advent of the last two Eva movies and the second Macross Frontier flick.

Anyone seen the 2nd Eva remake thing?  I really hated the first one on principle because it was just a remake of scenes from the show with the same style, music and voice actors plus no Asuka but part 2 seems to deviate quite a bit.

Also I kept seeing toys for this test suit Asuka who pratically has her tits hanging out that I thought was just borderline fan fiction but is actually her from the new movie so now I kind of want to see it...

I just got done (literally, less than fifteen minutes ago) watching the English version. While it carries over a lot of stuff from the show, it's nothing like the first one in that regard by a long shot. It's still Evangelion, and it's still based on what came before, but it's much looser. The main story progression is going on, but restructured, reordered, and in some places heavily revised. With the second movie, they've pretty much gotten through episode 19 AND already introduced Kaworu. They've also introduced more Evas, cut out all the monster-of-the-week Angel confrontations, introduced and altered characters, and made Shinji not to be the utter pussy he was previously. So I would say, based on that, that the movies are a combination of the series, previous movies, the manga (YES!), and a number of new ideas on pre-existing material as well as brand new stuff.

In short, I think you should watch it.

As for Asuka's new plug suit, she's only in it for a few minutes, as it's completely new to her near the end of the movie. The funny part is, the last real line she has in the movie is something like, "one last thing...it's cool that it's red and all, but what pervert designed this suit? It's a bit revealing."

I think I'll watch these new Eva movies once they're done making them. The sheer amount of merch they've inspired is staggering, but considering the Eva train has been running strong for fifteen years, it's not surprising.

So get this. That new X-Men anime? The first episode was totally watchable. I totally watched it from beginning to end. It's the least anime-ish anime I've seen in a long while, they're obviously looking to appeal beyond Japan.

But the team actually goes to Japan in episode 2, so that could change in a hurry.

As long as it's not for a bukkake session, I wouldn't imagine it'd be that bad.

And waiting for Eva is good and bad. Good in that there'll certainly be a big-assed super deluxe Blu-Ray edition at that point that'll be the cat's meow, but bad in that you'll miss out on it for many years in the meantime.

Like now, I've had Ghost in the Shell's second season for years and am only now watching it. I've been kicking myself in the ass over it for three weeks.

But this Eva movie came out in June 2009, and we're just getting it. Pisses me off...the first one came out in 2007 and we only got it in 2009. And the third one hasn't even had a release set, so that means two years AT LEAST before it sees an English version. And the fourth one is even further down the road than that. Jist of it is, you're gonna be waiting for a looong time to see any of them.

Here I figured with the place where she appears int the anime that Asuka would be all over this thing!  oh well 'll propbably chell this one out  thanks for the review 

i can certainly allow myself to watch an episode of X-Men though my biggest annoyance with Wolverine is they kept going to Japan  isn't there any interest inswitching up the seTting of an anime just a little?

Asuka's the same as she's ever been (save the new last name, which I still don't understand), but she's used a bit different this time, and she seems to go through a slight bit of a character change before the end of the movie. You have to watch it to see what I mean, as I don't want to spoil it.

This is pretty weird. Tiger & Bunny, despite the crap name, seems like a good show. It's about corporate-sponsored superheroes fighting crime on television as if it were a spectator sport/reality series. So far it looks like the story will mainly follow an older hero who's never really made much of a name for himself, getting a second lease on stardom when the company he's working for is bought out and he's given a new suit.

And apparently it's on hulu, so anyone who has that can watch it.

I watched episode one of Honey and Clover on Netflix and imagine my surprise that it's actually the sub and not the dub.  Too bad I don't really care for it though.  Those dudes being in love with that tiny child-like chick, it feels like I'm watching "The Story of Two Dougs".

I'm hazy on this one. Wasn't she just a straight-up child?

No, she's supposed to be 18 but looks and acts 12.  EW.  And the guy she apparently ends up with (since I read spoilers) comes off as a total douchebag.

I also saw the first two eps of Spice and Wolf.  I kinda don't want to spoil this one for myself but at the same time I want to know if something ever freakin' happens.  Because it feels like I'm watching two people talk to each other in the car on a roadtrip.  Except we never arrive anywhere.

And thank u, toe!

I watched another new one called Hanasaku Iroha. It wasn't even on my radar because it looked like a girly piece of fluff, but I heard good things and checked it out. Very nice animation, likable characters and a complete lack of pervy service make for a winner. It's about a girl who moves in to her bitch grandmother's hot springs resort after her mom and her mom's boyfriend run off together. It's straight drama with some cutesy lightheartedness, with no samurai or giant robots in sight. Not that there's anything wrong with those things, but they don't have to be in every anime ever, youknowwhatI'msaying?

As anime goes I much prefer to old school method of underaged girls drawn as adults to the current method of adults drawn as being underaged...

I stuck with it and, yeah, it's a little easy-going for my tastes.  But the two leads are solid characters, so it makes up for it.  But by God, that Engrish end-theme kills me.

In the "ewww, fast-forward" kind of way.  "A dou-san shu-gar stahhrs..."  Jeez Louise.  It was more painful than Urara Takano's English lines in Sakura Wars.

Me and the GF have been watching Spice and Wolf. I quite like it, she does as well.

I liked season one.  Then there was a filler extra ep or OVA or maybe it was actually ep one of season 2 that sucked and I quit.

Did they change VAs or something? Well, at least I have five more to look forward to. We'll see if we agree after that.

No it wasn't the VAs it was like the writing got bad.

But I'm not sure if it was actually season 2 that I saw or this sort of in between seasons thing.

All I know is that I passed on it.  Loli-pantsu anime isn't something I'm into.

I think it was Welcome to the NHK, the main dude and his buddy were brainstorming ideas for one of the girls in the dating sim they were making, and they started out with a basic cute girl and then just kept adding more and more fetishes and constantly revising her until she was this monstrosity barely recognizable as human.

That's what Strike Witches is like. From that pic that I posted, she's obviously a loli, but she's even bordering on that whole little boy dressed as a girl thing, I don't know what they call it, but I know they have a word. Anyway, then they toss her in the school swimsuit, throw a sailor top over it, give her dog ears and a tail, stick mecha parts on her legs, and put a machine gun in her hand.

It's fucking ridiculous.

And the otaku devour it.
