The third Berserk film has been delayed until January 2013. Also, the official movie poster has been revealed.
As for Bokurano..
Regarding differences between the stories in the manga and in the anime, Hiroyuki Morita, who directed the anime, wrote in his blog that he dislikes the original story and has, in some ways, been making changes to the plot for that reason. He also wrote that, at one point early in the development of the show, he asked manga author Mohiro Kitoh if he could find some way to save the main characters — the kids who must pilot Zearth. He wrote that Kitoh responded that his choice was fine as long as the changes did not involve "magical solutions" to the story. Morita closed out the blog entry with the statement "The director of the animated version of Bokurano dislikes the original manga. From here on out, you can't expect the animated version to expand on what you might find appealing in the original. So, fans of the original, please do not watch the animated version from now on"
Uguuuuuuuuuuu >.< I want to be happy now so I'm watching Accel world.So, continuing down what you seem to call the path of depression, i'd recommend Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (When the cicadas cry). Come back after that and tell me you either now hate me, or youre worried someones going to kill you, or both :P
Ooh definitely. Although I like the stuff that comes out of Japan, I can't say that the Japanese social dynamic is something I ever want to be a part of.
People who if they could would choose to change absolutely everything about them so they are 100% Japanese. Most of the time they have no idea how life in Japan really is though.
How sad is it when a person goes to Japan thinking it'll be a happy life, then realizes that he/she is seen as nothing more than a social disturbance because of his/her race. I'm not saying all of Japan is like that, but odds are if you are a foreigner, life isn't going to be all peppy there. An acquaintance of mine has been living there for years, many, many years. She says that people are still surprised that she can speak Japanese whenever she meets someone, and hates the fact that no matter how many years she lives there, she'll be seen as a tourist.
In any case though I don't want to digress this to talking about Japan too much, just had to get that out there.
EDIT: Welp, I'll give some props to Accel world for not sticking me with the typical male lead of "antisocial timid doormat" or "overconfident marty stu", this is the first Anime I've seen where a pudgey pudgeball is the male lead.
Watching anime is going to be hard now that GW2 is finally up. ;_;
Ah, I didn't pick up GW2, I'll still be watching Accel World and reading SAO till my brain fries from the uguu.
It's not that I hate guild wars, but these days I need to thoroughly see what a game is going to be like before getting it, Diablo 3 taught me that lesson well.
What the hell.
It's even worse then Steins;Gate. The MC is at least okay, but Mikoto's and Index's voices make my cringe horribly.

LOL pretty much. I use em for background audio.
>sao ep 7, get new sword
>sao ep 8, never use it
wonder if it was just laziness on the animators behalf or what. also how dumb are they at the end of ep 8 "derp let's open boss door"
Just wait til Sao ep 9.
Anyone know where I can buy Spice and Wolf Vol. 1 LN with the original Japanese artwork? I've been looking around and all I can find is the American version and the manga. Or is the English version not available with that artwork?

You maaaay have an issue with the price cause of shipping.
Sword Fart Online
I just finished ep 8. Although I already finished vol 1 of the Light Novel, watching the Anime is still fun.
One reason I switched to the LN is because people kept saying that lots of scenes in the LN were left out of the Anime, but I can't really recall any so far. It might be that I didn't read Vol 2 of the LN and went straight to vol 3. The LN's volume 2 is included in the anime as some of the side-stories, such as the Black Swordsman(Hey, hey now, that's Gut's title! Uguu) episode.
Most depressing part of SAO so far:
Watching best girl (Liz of course) lose so easily.
I hate Asuna.
