I'm not sure if I have a good media server option for Mac.

I can get the file to play without having to reencode, but no subs, so really all I need now is to be able to add the subs.  I think I had a program that did it a while back but it wasn't free and ... I don't think I ever paid for it.  My preference is to not reencode because of quality loss, but for something that's already SD it's not the end of the world.

Hey, that new Last Exile started. Anyone watch it yet?

I've got it. I predict it will be skimmed and promptly baleeted.

The one I mentioned, Playstation Media Server (PMS for short :P), is available for Mac. But only Intel-powered Macs.

You would think the PS3--"it only does everything!" :nono:--would be able to play MKVs and handle SSA/ASS subtitling natively. But for re-encoding with hard-coded subs on Mac, I've read good things about FFMPEGX...another free program.

Psssh. Why don't you just wait until some alien race enslaves humanity and rerecords the audio in their native tongue.

I think I will because their language is 1/1000000th more clearer than our own and totally worth waiting for!

It's been dubbed for awhile now. That's how I watched it on Netflix, I am sure of it.

Awesome, thanks.  I'll try it out.  I don't really want to put a ton of effort into just watching a 13 episode series so hopefully that works.

Robotech

Although I only got the Macross Saga. They had the whole thing on sale for 12 bucks at Wal-Mart. The credits are slightly different then the old Robotech show. They cut out all the Southern Cross and Next Gen. stuff uses the whole Macross opening credits. The rest of show is pretty much just like I remember it from when I was a kid.

What's Gainax up to these days and why haven't they made anything as great as FLCL?

Gurren Lagann? Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt? The Evangelion movies? All way since Fooly Cooly.

Rama, is that set you picked up actually Robotech or the redubbed Macross that came out not too long ago? They were both based on the Animego-restored Macross masters, which would explain why the credits are different.

Hahaha... I had pretty much word-for-word the first part of Shwiggie's response typed out and ready to post, but then I thought, "toe knows about all this, he's just making a point about how he didn't like any of it."

Looks like Gainax's most recent TV anime is something called Dantalian. I haven't seen it.

Dantalian was ok.  It's headed towards rozen maiden though, but in a good way.

I'll be honest, I don't know. It is remastered and it does show some stuff that was edited out of the American show like a shot of Minmay's ass and a skin poster on Roy's wall. But it has the Harmony Gold logos all over it, the same dub, and even has the Robotech bumpers. So I don't know. It was released by A&E Video.

Must be Robotech. I got the Legacy collection, but it was pre-re-mastering, so I never rebought it out of spite.

I finally watched the first two dubbed episodes of the X-men anime. It's really good so far. Maybe even better than Wolverine and the X-men.

I started watching Fairy Tail.  Don't know if I'll stick with it.  It's amusing enough but I was able to skip two episodes while it was in the midst of a plotline to no real detriment.  Seems like something I could probably wait for Netflix to stream next year or whenever.  And it's going to be released in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack.  Yay.  Two discs I won't be able to use.  That doesn't exactly make me keen to buy it.

I also saw some shit on Netflix.  I don't remember the names but one was this vampire anime with these badly-drawn bishounen (because you know that's what they were supposed to be except they were badly drawn) and in the first few minutes this dudes whining about sharing his cinnamon roll.  HUH.  Ditched it from the Instant Queue.

Another was something with some redundant-ass title like Heroic Heroes of the Heroic Age or some crap.  This one wasn't bad, but I just found it a little dull and uninteresting.

Also, because I wanted something playing in the background that I wouldn't have too much interest in, I played some Inuyasha on Netflix.  The later shit where I had long since bailed on the series.  In one ep, it was really glaring how uninteresting the main characters are.  There was this plot with Kikyo that was just so much more compelling than any of the repetitive shit the school girl and her doggies were doing.  And the Band of Seven guys really knew how to steal the show.

I like Fairy Tail a lot I've seen every ep.
I think it's going to go on forever like One Piece and I'm in on the ground floor baby!

Heroic Heroes of the Heroic Heroicness is regarded as a very good anime, that you only found it a little dull and uninteresting proves that it is in fact one of the best offerings in present times.

That would be horrible.  Seriously, for OP I hope they make, like, One Piece Kai or some shit because there's no way I'm ever sitting through all of that.

I know I've said this before, but when it comes to long-running shonen series, manga > anime. Always and forever.

But your best bet is simply avoiding long-running shonen series completely.

No, my best bet is to do what I do now: find the episodes of interest to me, watch those, and ignore the rest because it's not as if most of that shit matters.
