BakaBT is good for stuff you can seed back, but they can be a bit draconian about your ratio. Tokyotosho is alright for newer releases and finding single episodes, but it doesn't have any old material. It also mostly just finds torrents from other sites. Both together can get you pretty much anything you're looking for.

I'm glad to hear this news. It means I can show Kill La Kill to my dub-only friends soon. I'm hopeful that it won't be a bad dub.

Toonami will totally pick it up. They have been pestered enough to pick up Attack On Titan, and people have been begging for Kill La Kill of months now, so this has precedent... Pftpfffffft, who am I kidding? Toonami has a moderate chance of picking it up. But all the nudity and nudity-lite could, can and will be enough of a reason for Toonami to not touch it with a ten foot pole.

I kinda hope it does, though I don’t think Sailor Stars would get that chance even with the less-lax rules of [adult swim].

Still, 200 episodes of Sailor Moon would damn well fill the spot left by Bleach once the latter show ends its run – and the nostalgia factor might give the show an extra ratings bump, to boot.

Wouldn’t hurt to toss an Ask in the Toonami Tumblah’s inbox about it.

Honestly, the Stars weren't that big a deal. They weren't actually transgendered, they were just posing as men to keep their heads low from an enemy, as I recall. There's no real "alternative lifestyle" to get up-in-arms about, especially by Adult Swim standards, other than the recurring lesbian aspects that come up, like Seiyaa making moves on Usagi and the girls having major league girl-crushes on the Stars.

Adult Swim gets away with abortion and pedophilia jokes, and I'm pretty sure Aqua Teen had a whole episode centering around a balloon doggie raping Carl. I'm pretty sure they can handle crossdressing ladies with implied lesbianism.

In this guy's defense, there is a case to be made for saying that derivative works form their own cultural artifact that is worth preserving even accepting that it's not the original. So, for example, Robotech is a different show from Macross and it's understandable that some people would want to preserve that show.

But still....this is an insane overreaction. Even assuming you *do* prefer the English names, there's nothing really being lost by using the Japanese names (and, in a move that will infuriate purists, I feel the same way about the reverse--Anglicized names are not a supreme sin against Japanese media).

That said....I *will* miss Dub Zoicite. She was the best thing about the old dub. I certainly wouldn't suggest the new dub should keep that aspect--it's disrespectful to homosexuals, for starters. But I'll miss her, all the same.

The old dub’s not too terribly hard to find these days, and it’s not like the existence of the new dub automagically erases the old dub out of existence.

Essentially arguing that the original dub is the only version of Sailor Moon that the US should ever have, however…well, that sounds like nostalgia gone overboard.

Those exact changes are what make the anime version infinitely superior, yes. The art in the beginning is horrifying and it's bogged down with a LOT of really boring and terrible fanservice which Studio BONES helpfully excised.

Yeah, the animation in the new trailer is quite impressive. I'm wondering if they're just cherry picking well-animated segments to give us a disproportionate view....or if the producers just gave them the biggest "fuck you, I'm Sailor Moon, I'll sell ALL THE DVDs" budget ever.

So I got bored and decided to read Uzumaki because everyone says that it's incredibly horrifying and you'll have nightmares and be scared of spiral objects for weeks, all that jazz.

Honestly, it wasn't really so much. The stuff in the beginning was pretty creepy (especially the guy spiraled up in the big tub and the girl with the hole in her head) but after that it just got more and more absurd and kinda hilarious because of it. Hair monsters, people turning to snails, a pogo-stick zombie, pregnant women drilling holes in people, tornado-sufing gangsters; mostly my reactions were varying flavors of "...wat?" Maybe I just don't "get" Japanese horror, but it seemed to me like an extremely overdone version of some kind of Lovecraft tale. if you ask me, true horror is in its subtlety, and this manga was pretty far from subtle.

The only thing that really, really, REALLY creeped me out was the bonus chapter at the end. The shot of the sky all improbably full of gorgeous visible galaxies is EXACTLY like what I've seen in a recurring dream.

I had the same reaction, but for me the "lol wut" stuff was all at the beginning of the story. The lighthouse and mosquito chapters are what unnerved me, and after that was when I started to think the story was actually creepy. But yeah, it was still half unnerving and half god damned funny.

Genshiken is the only series I can think of set in any sort of college, and even then the college has nothing to do with it--most of the cast stick around the club even after graduating. Every other work I can think of where the main cast is above high school age, they're either employed or NEETs.

I guess it's because no one finds it an interesting subject. As much anime/manga are about high school students, the only school stuff relevant to the plot tends to be extra-curricular things (sports, class projects, field trips) you don't really do in college.

So is Aldnoah Zero any good? The production values are pretty nice, but Aoki Ei is a pretty mediocre director even if he's not outright terrible. It seems like they're trying to make another Fate/Zero out of it, and that ended up being kinda disappointing compared to the novel.

It's okay so far. The backstory as presented so far is fucking DUMB and I really hate the design of the princess character (she looks like a runaway Britannian royal), but I really like the MC's weird Terminatoresque attitude and the focus on the main characters using tricks and tactics to beat super mechs.

Studio Ghibli has decided to die a hero, than live long enough to see itself become the villain.

http://oh-totoro.com/post/93700803450/studio-ghibli-announces-closure-toshio-suzuki

>"Just moments ago, Toshio Suzuki, Studio Ghibli producer, announced on the TV show of the MBS Jounetsu Tairiku chain effectively as announced as sources close to the studio, Studio Ghibli will close and production studio anime, leaving himself only as a company that will manage its trademarks. As stated in the program’s producer, "the production department of anime will be dismantled," which coincides with the data that we gave in our previous post on this decision had been taken from spring after the poor reception at the box office of Kaguya-hime no Monogatari.

>In the interview, Suzuki has also admitted that it was a major setback for the study progress Hayao Miyazaki, one of the reasons already unveiled the portal Rakuten Woman. Once we have access to the full TV interview, adding more data. No doubt that this is a very sad news for Japanese animation, of which we are all fans, because it is undeniable everything Studio Ghibli has given the anime. Please remember that what will be his last film, Omoide no Marnie, premiered at the Japanese box office on 19 July.”

I’ll mourn the closure of the studio, but praise the people in charge for closing it now rather than after a string of flops and low-quality releases that would tarnish the studio’s good name.

I really hope Disney puts together a Ghibli (or Miyazaki) box set of Blu-rays some day. I’d sell a kidney to pay for that.

Because it's so easy, quick, and affordable to get manga the right way now that it's not particularly sympathetic to whine about losing your access to shitty, free fan-translations?

I mean don't get me wrong. If I lose the ability to read some of my favorite non-licensed titles with no real chance of getting licensed, like Princess Jellyfish, I might be more upset about it. But for now, who gives a shit? The people getting a free ride through scanslations are only making the manga industry less profitable so that I *don't* get official Princess Jellyfish.

I love Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei. I watched the first two seasons when they were airing, but never got around to watching the third or reading the manga volumes that were translated at the time.
A couple months ago I had part of the ending spoiled for me and I finally got around to reading it over the past week. It's amazing how the author managed to hide hints through seven years of publishing it without people catching on, especially when the OPs and EDs of the anime seasons give away so much.
I'm probably going to read through it again after catching up on the anime.

Finished Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet. While the name is odd, I found the show to be good.

In one episode Aldnoah just skyrocketed in quality. I did like quite a lot of it before now but it had some major issues, namely that the villains, while fun to watch get clowned in really banal ways, were nothing and the timeline is ridiculous. This episode took some BIG FUCKING STRIDES in fixing both, pretty much in one scene.

She seems the very definition of a sub, even literally calling Alucard "Master". She's a vampire who has a kick-ass gun, and the moment she stops kicking ass she turns into a whiny, useless damsel in distress. The worst example I've ever seen of a female character who can put up a good fight but always needs rescuing and, the moment she stops fighting, turns into some sort of male ownership fantasy.

And, though not to her character, her English dub voice stops just short of being nails-on-a-chalkboard grating.

Wizard Barristers had a disappointing ending. They do some good world building and have some moderate-if-standard villainy, but the final "showdown" is a let down as the series seems to realize "Oh, wait, we're all about wizards and trials! We need a wizard trial to finish out the series!" So they do that but what they do is such a complete mess that it may as well have played out anywhere. They tried to be all Ace Attorney Final Turnabout and fell on their face. Because if the defense is giving an account of events contrary to the defendant, and you reject the defense because it's contrary so of course we're going with the defendant, then a book you simply claim to have all the history that happens to materialize out of a charm held by the defense is iron-clad evidence.

I've seen this opinion multiple times and I really don't understand it. Slaine is a really by the numbers mech protag. It's fun to watch him flail around and constantly get screwed over but he's not interesting. Inaho on the other hand, while he doesn't emote much, actually has a surprisingly sinister element to him: it's very clear he cares for like, a total of 3 people at best and he's quite happy to fall back and let tons of people die so he can figure out how to keep those 3 safe. He's even blatantly manipulating the resident Gundam Princess and tries to kill Slaine so he can keep exploiting her. I think that's a fascinating choice of MCs, and wouldn't be surprised if he becomes an antagonistic force later if say, his sister and mechanic buddy both get bodied.

Funny, while not being a fan of Slaine I could stand Inaho even less with his borderline-Stuish, self-insert blandness, and excessive plot armor. At least with Slaine it was kinda funny seeing him getting owned every time, regardless of his individual likeability. Even if Inaho did seem to begin digging himself out of the characterization hole at the last minute, I hope the ending sticks because I see the current development giving the show an interesting direction to go Slaine becomes a Light figure? Homura? Kinzo Ushiromiya? darker Lelouch? some other kind of villainous protagonist. I pray they don't go the "getting shot in the brain grants you Aldnoah-resurrection" route they seem to be foreshadowing with Saazbaum's gesturing because that would just be cheap as fuck.

Inaho was never emotionless and it baffles me that people think he was. Just because he's not constantly screaming HIME-SAMA like Slaine is doesn't mean he doesn't care about people. I misinterpreted his feelings on the princess (turns out big sis was right about him all along), but Inaho's whole thing was always just that he was mentally out of tune with everyone else. In fact he actually comes off as autistic. Genuinely so, not stupid internet "lol so autist" bullshit. A lot of autistic people just don't have the normal fear reaction, and part of the point of Marito's character is showing that regular people fucking panic when faced with the crazy Super Robots. Inaho isn't so he pieces things together quietly. He's certainly not a self-insert, most people don't fantasize about being an emotionally repressed weirdo with 3 friends.

He's not totally emotionless, the last episode made that totally clear he's got them but it's a borderline infantile level of emotional maturity that he's bad at expressing which is kind of neat. But his constant victories and successes while everyone else is pretty useless made him kind of insufferable. Though that may have been intentional to make his final failure hit harder. He reminds me of Kiritsugu in a way, though not handled nearly as well.

Sure, that's why I find him neat, he's a pretty nonstandard lead.

I hope Slaine ends up secretly burying both of them, so nobody ever learns what happened to Inaho and the legend of this crazy Orange fucker just haunts the 2nd season White Reaper style. At the least if Seylum really is dead that would explain why she's considered missing at the end there. As for Inaho, idk, maybe Slaine would feel a bit of regret, considering that Seylum was clearly genuinely worried over Inaho?

Whatever they do I am super excited for it. I want to see what they do with Slaine, Rayet, and all the rest after... well after that. This is the first mech show in YEARS I don't feel has majorly fucked up in some fashion. I just hope it keeps that up!

Also farewell to Sauce Boss if he really is dead. He was a pretty good villain, and he drove Voltron.

I think the thing about AZ is that "interesting" doesn't always translate to "likeable". My biggest problem with the show before was that almost everybody in the cast is a goddamn idiot, incompetent, or an asshole. But if I think of the show as a character study it's a lot easier to swallow. Calling it the the "d" word that rhymes with "reconstruction" is premature (maybe Urobuchi has more to do with it than he's willing to admit), but it's nice schadenfreude to see standard mecha hero archetypes get BTFO by the plot and punished because they're too damn "anime" for their own good, and why it's super important the show doesn't ruin everything it's accomplished with that ending by resorting to status quo bullshit.

Inaho's emotional issues make him horribly uncharismatic, but that's because AZ recognizes it as the goddamn character flaw that it is, instead of dismissing it or treating it as a cute or charming quirk. He's not meanspirited by nature but he does some pretty despicable things since he can't understand other people properly, and it makes his last moments kinda tragic because it proves he's not the empty shell he seems, but hey, karma's a bitch.
Slaine gets made everybody's bitch for no real fault of his own, and it's easier to sympathize with him because goddamn he wants to "do the right thing", but life isn't black and white so being a hotblooded moralfag in this setting just causes him to dig himself deeper because he's not coldhearted enough to think shit through like Inaho, and all his ideals accomplish is get the princess killed, ruining the point of everything.

Can't hate Slaine too much because I think Inaho's more valuable as a plot/character development device and coming back would just cheapen his own characterization but I don't want Slaine to take the easy way out either. It's a lot more fun to see where his character goes from here regardless of whether he goes the grim repentant Byronic Hero route or goes off the deep end and becomes the brooding final villain.

The Susanoo/Orochi story serves as one of the central myths of Japan. So Orochi shows up a lot for the same reason that, say, Tiamat shows up a lot in stuff inspired by Babylonian mythology, or Loki and his children are always signficant in Norse-derived works. Japan has hundreds of popular monsters from folklore and mythology, but most of those are small-scale. They might murder you and your family, but they're not likely to wipe out cities. I guess there are the four legendary beasts--the White Tiger, Blue Dragon, Black Turtle and Red Sparrow, but they show up all the frickin' time, too. Also, while they're known figures in Japanese mythology, their origin is Chinese.

The story is especially significant to Japan because it's part of the Origin Story for the Emperor's genetic line--Amaterasu is considered to be the ancestor of the first Emperor, and the Orochi story is how her brother Susanoo attained the sword Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi which was later renamed Kusanagi, one of the three pieces of Imperial Regalia that represent the Emperor's divinity.
