I just watched Evangelion 1.0 and it was so fucking boring. Here's hoping that 2.0 is not as boring. I'll never consider these movies canon

1.0 almost exactly follows the original series up to episode 6. 2.0 burns through most of the series up to somewhere around episode 20, but it diverges minorly in most places, majorly in some, and generally makes you glad you toughed out 1.0.

As for canonicity...it's an official derivative work, so I'd say it's part of the canon. However, I consider the Rebuild movies a separate continuity from the original series and subsequent films, much like the manga.

The two main characters in katana are always snuggling...I had a little scheming chick that used to snuggle with me after I drunkenly beat the crap out of my "enemies".

Now all I have is a stuffed monkey and memories...

Merla's been watching this show called Blue Exorcist about twins that are sons of Satin.  I mean, Satan.  But they say it "Satin".  It would actually be a better show if they were the sons of Satin.  I can't say I care for it that much, seems kinda generic to me.

Considering that 99% of the anime this year so far has been the shittiest, most generic harem anime I have ever fucking seen, Blue Exorcist looks good in comparison. I blame Fukushima. In any case Blue Exorcist looks like it may be going the way of Bleach and that scares me, as we don't need another Bleach. Blue is originally a manga, so I expect plenty of filler and the series to drag on for 300 episodes.


The worst anime I have seen so far:

Dog Days
This anime is nothing more than a moe harem anime with NO FUCKING PLOT. I give it props only for not having panty shots and having realistically proportioned females.

So this perfect mary-sue nice guy falls into a parallel world. In this parallel world two kingdoms, one with catgirls, and one with doggirls, (and there's a bunny girl in there too), fight wars for fun, wars where no one actually dies.

The main male character is perfect in every way. All the females in the anime adore him to death and want his babies. The two factions fight war with no consequence as NO ONE DIES. The main character falls in love with the princess, and gets sent back to his own world swearing he had a ton of fun and will return during his next school break.

AND NOTHING ELSE OF CONSEQUENCE FUCKING HAPPENS.
No main enemy, no conflict, no plot, just cute fucking catgirls and dog girls and lots of fucking cuteness and perfection.

Yep. The radiation from the nuclear powet plants did a number on Japan, allright.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Modern anime is a stagnant cesspool of regurgitated ideas.

Oh yea, I do think one bad thing happens. A demon appears.

AND THEN THEY BEFRIEND IT.

I mean, I could love this because of the fantasy element but dear god the rest of it sucks so much ass!!!

BRB destroying planet because all that is good has gone...

And to answer IDE, yes, Dog Days is a giant Moe blob. It's Moe thrown in a blender with Kemonomimi, some swords and magic for that fantasy look, and adding several newborn babies in for taste, and then blended on puree setting.

Yeah fuck that show, wtf are you even watching that for?   I took one look at the art and bailed. 

Nurahiyon no mago has a 2nd season.  I'm stoked about that.  I'm really digging yokai anime recently I think I just found another one called Natsume Yuujin or something like that.

Stein's gate is heating up.  All the 4chan fags love it apparently too from the times that I rarely pop open that has been of a site that I was there in 2003 and everyone else who found it after me is gay, like totally gay, and I'm so much more INTERNET than them.

I watched the first few episodes of Monster and thought it was brilliant.  And then episode 6 or 7 or whichever one it was came along and the show delved into clip episodes.  Then we have a flashback--which shouldn't have been a flashback at all but a natural progression of the plot--that I couldn't really give a shit about.  Not certain if I can be bothered to return for 70+ episodes of this.

That looks interesting and there is a dub. 

Durarara!! is about the lives of various characters living tokyo's ikebukoro area.  The characters range from highschool kids to a Doolohan (an irish headless horseman).

If you like Monster, try to get a hold of the manga. Naoki Urasawa's shit is almost always gold.

Why they would artificially lengthen the anime with clip shows and flashbacks when the manga had already long since ended is beyond me.

Also, Durarara was written by the same guy who did Baccano which is also awesome.

Money. Clip shows are cheaper as they're recycled.

Agree.  The biggest offense is that they couldn't even continue on strong and THEN wait for the clip show twenty-something episodes in.  They did it all early.  No excuse.  :mad:

Well, it was like two eps in a row.  And then we get a boring flashback.  I thought I'd go back to Spice & Wolf after that one bored me but I dropped that so I might end up dropping this as well.  I don't know yet.  I may just look up the good episodes and skip around.

HOLY SHIT THE MOVIE WAS FUCKING AMAZING. THE LAST 6 MINUTES MADE THE WHOLE THING WORTH IT. FOR REALZ.

I'm glad you were finally able to see it.

Unfortunately, the last two, which were supposedly being made concurrently, don't even have a release date yet, and indications are that there is a big dispute at the heart of it. So who knows when they'll ever get to the rest?
