    I love how they took completely retarded ideas and actually forged them into serious, real plot. I mean, they put in a scene like this(Yea, those are beams.) and managed to keep it relevant, in-character and serious.

    Defending a position by citing free speech is the ultimate concession: you're saying that literally the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not illegal to express.

    Haha, that's ridiculous. DxD is definitely one of the better ecchi shows out there.


    I wonder if this was the actual translation. I don't quite remember, but I don't remember the first season ever being so blatant about it. Sure, the show had lots of boobs and innuendo, but I don't ever remember them being so straight forward about it. Of course I could just be an idiot and be completely forgetting about stuff like this. Which is entirely possible lol.

    From the LN translation and my very, very bad knowledge of Japanese it's more of "Feel like assaulting me...?". But well, it comes down to exactly the same meaning in the end.

    Also: NO MOM! THIS IS NOT PORN!

    Kind of the same, but it's more subtle than the translation FFF had. Your translation seems more in line with how I remember the show being.


    And lol, I imagine some poor kid has already run into this situation.

    Kiniro - This episode was adorable. The concept of this show is going to be so great. I like how they represented England and western culture.

    Fantasista - Love the concept of this too, but I wonder if it'll turn out to be more than it looks or stay static from here on out. Blue hair is great.

    Uchouten - I almost dropped it the first minute because of the animation style but after getting past that I think I've fallen in love by the end and am definitely keeping with it. I love the MC and hope he keeps the same clothing the entire show.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Makai Ouji - After getting past the faces this is another good looking show. We get to see another version of Gilles de Rais and also Dantalion.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Blood Lad - This show. He better keep his full powers when he enters the human world.

    Don't know but it's Anmi's character. <3
    I really do like the concept though.

    Genshiken - I don't know what to think anymore. The VA's changing was hard enough to get through, and hearing all the different voices felt really really off, and having Sue transfer in with no explanation between seasons, but the worst/weirdest part for me is seeing the anime do a complete 360 from season 1. Season 1 was a mainly guys otaku club, and now it's nearly entirely a girls fujoshi club with 1 1/2 guys. Almost the entire original cast has been nearly entirely phased out from the show and it's turned into a club of fujoshi's. I miss seeing the guys go at it with Saki getting mad at them for being really otaku, Ohno going crazy about cosplays, and when Ogiue joined her being herself. Now there are a bunch of new characters I don't care about in the club and the best characters, Kasukabe, Kousaka, Madarame, Sasahara, Tanaka, and Kugayama have all left the club and are rarely in the show since the middle of season 2.

    The only good parts about the club are Ogiue sometimes (though she's lost a lot of what makes her her since the beginning of S2 it seems) and Sue is a great addition even if her joining doesn't make sense.

    I just want it to go back to what it was before and kick out most of the new members while having the old members stay and not graduate and leave for jobs. With this first episode it doesn't even feel like Sasahara is the MC anymore, which he should be and has been.

    The original President didn't even show up once in season 2 with no sighting as of yet in this season which is a slight disappointment.

    I'll just hope it goes back to it's roots instead of turning into a mainly girls fujoshi club with Kuchiki being annoying.


    At least there is a trap.

    Uchouten Kazoku Ep 1 - Well that was an extremely pleasant surprise. Damn was that a good first episode. My favorite of the season so far. I'm loving the art style, too. I have high hopes for this show.

    Agreed. MC is pretty awesome.

    Blood Lad: just as expected a nice adaption of the manga and probably will end up as one of ma favourites this seen also if u want read this little manga spoiler about human world they wont be there long most of the story plays in the demon world and there will be quite abit of fighting but also alot of comedy ;P

    Makai Ouji: another anime for those people that like BL... but atleast the story was quite interesting and i liked how the mc was totally ignorant of what he was seeing and full of distrust

    Uchouten Kazuku: seems like low budget animation especially the ears <,< but the first episode wasnt that bad but not that great either could be a solid 3-4/5.

    i cant wait for silver spoon i hope they do a great job with it (if it gets really nice animation it could be in the top 3 of most people here i think ;X)

    gonna watch DxD now download just finished
    DxD wow this would be so awkward to be walked in on ;O but quite the nice episode lots of fanservice and plot just what u would expect of this ;D

    Just watched ep 9 of Susei Gargantia. Oh man. I kind of miss it being SoL and cheery. I figured it wouldn't stay that way, though, considering Urobachi is involved. Still, I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

    World God Only Knows S3 - Good first episode, though I really don't like they skipped a bunch of girls. I haven't even read the manga but it still irritates me. I would have loved to see more of the first girl (one where they swap bodies).

    Yeah, Christina Vee does her voice. I don't think it fits though :/

    Always interested to see what James Cameron will do next and this looks like it'll be pretty great.

    Just finished Dangan Ronpa. Pretty good game overall. The ending, though, idk. All this talk about "despair" and "hope" and stuff just seemed too much. The whole thing about the world going into despair was just, odd, I guess. I liked the reveal that they all spent 2 years together before the game started though. The part where you withhold the information about Kirigiri having the master key, followed by Naegi's execution scene, that part was absolutely amazing.

    I really hate spoilers. This morning I was halfway done the last chapter, and I was on /a/ for a break. Was just scrolling down it and I accidently saw someone post "how did Junko manage to build all those execution things?" Such a short question ruined some of the surprise. I went into the final trial knowing Junko was alive and probably was the puppet master.

    After finishing I suppose I can see how they can fit it into 13 episodes. I imagine each chapter will be 2 episodes. It'll obviously be rushed, and it'll make some of the impact of some scenes have less effect, but I really don't think they'll have to cut anything important.

    Kirigiri = best girl.



    Inu to Hasami 02 - Okay this series is pretty bland compared to the rest of the stuff this season. Probably right beside Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku in terms of quality. I probably will end up dropping it if it doesn't improve next episode.

    OMG, I'm in love with that music. Those two songs went into my playlist immediately when I first heard them.
    Same goes for most of the songs from AT2 (first and foremost EXEC_over.METHOD_SUBLIMATION/.~omness chs ciel sos infel *in love*)


    On a side note, I think this season had a promising start so far (still waiting for two more anime: watamote and Neptunia), I wonder if all of them will continue to deliver.

    Oh TWGOK how i love thee. May need to reread the manga. Forgot a little bit lol

    Those are really nice, I was hoping it was an anime I could watch since I will watch anything if I like the OST for it, but alas it is a PS3 game and I do not own a PS3. Is the rest of the OST as good as this? If so I will have to search for it.

    I have some mixed feelings about Inu to Hasami... If we skip the completely retarded combat sequence and reformed-by-books part of this episode it's quite good - but the part I'm mentioning here was just so overwhelmingly, embarrassingly stupid... :/
