Perhaps Minami-ke, but reading the manga made me feel that it's on a much lower level of absurdity as Nichijou.

Try Muromi-san. It's a mermaid anime, and in my experience, no mermaid anime has Gargantia'd me yet. It's also a nonsense comedy anime, maybe quite like Nichibros.

The protagonist was a good character, had some depth to it and the more you watched you really felt like you were getting more and more acquainted with here. Her talking motorbike on the other hand was slightly annoying in my opinion.

The art was OK. I was kinda annoyed by the stripe pattern overlay, as you would see on older analog displays. I think they did it to give the show an older appearance; like it was from the 80s or something. In the end it I have to admit that the art and animation quality was much better than most of the shows I've seen of around 2003. And the art had the effect of kinda drawing you into the atmosphere of the show.

It was enjoyable, but I did feel it lacked some entertainment value at times.

As such I'll give it an 8/10.

Fair enough.
I think they did not went overboard with the art so that the viewer does not get too distracted from the story (the most important part of this anime).

Let me just quote Scamp here:
"The artwork is unique enough to stand out, stylised enough not to age, and reserved enough to take a back seat to the storytelling. But Kino’s Journey could be live action, a manga, a novel, a flipbook, scribbled on a public bathroom door, and it would still work."

Joshiraku.
The most excellent absurd humor anime.

Paniponi Dash! Pretty much.
On the other hand, my friend liked Nichijou but earlier said PPD! was too much for him. ;-)

Bit late, but happy new year! So hungover. New year's resolution No.1: Drink less.

 

 

Surprised it took this long for a SAO S2 announcement considering how well the first season sold. Hell if you look at the light novel sale numbers SAO smashes everything else by miles. Not quite sure whether to be happy about it or not though :tongue:.

 

Wonder how long S2 will be. GGO is actually pretty short so wouldn't be surprised if it is only one cour this time around. Then again, considering the show's cash cow status now it could go either way.

Thanks for the suggestion

Actually I tried that anime, but I didn't like it. Too much orientation towards dialogue, means I have to pay too much attention for the genre to work for me.

I have been thinking about PPD, but I have my doubts since it's made in 2005. In my experience these kind of things just feel better with more recent animation techniques.

gaisgaisgaisgais this is the best anime awards post I've seen (and funniest): http://t.co/BfFPk4UzNj

Here some choice quotes that made me LOL fo realzies:

"“Best” manservice (and guiltiest pleasure): Free

(picture of schlong in speedos)

Truefax: According to the internet, this was the first time in the history of mass culture that men were sexualized for women’s visual pleasure"

"Best se[a] men eating motiff: Meganebu

(picture of licking "cream" off finger)

Let’s just say that I’ve got the very obvious nickname for this show down at the bottom."

"The Straight Cougar Memorial Award for most ridiculous Sunrise character name: ERU ERUFU

(L-Elf)

Yeah yeah, I know it’s really “L-11″ but ERU ERUFU sounds so much more stupid. Also, it is much to our collective sadness that because Gundam Build Fighters is set in the modern real world, there was a massive lack of ridiculous Gundam character names this year since that meant that they all have names like “Sei Iori” or “Ricardo Fellini” rather than “Natora Einus” or “Yurin L’Ciel”."

"This year’s “ZOMG ANIME IS DYING” award: Vividred Operation

(showing loli-ass in face, dialogue goes "PUSH IT, AOI!")

You know how everyone looks at a Jackson Pollock painting and thinks “Oh come on, I could’ve done that!”? Vividred Operation is the opposite in that everyone had already thought of the concept long before now and the mystery is why it took this long to come to fruition."

"Best shoujo: lol"

2 series I can remember at the top of my head are d-frag and mahou sensou.

 

Nothing airs this week? :o Eva 4 this year hopefully. Unicorn 7 awe ye.

post #99354 of 147584

Yep, that was quite a good AOTY list :D Thanks Jgray

 

Anyway, Gatchaman Crowds like he said, was surprisingly good. I was expecting Power Rangers as well, but his thoughts match mine. It was very similar in feel to Eden of the East.

 

GATCHA!

 

Gonna watch some Nagi no NTR schiit now. And then some outbreak company

Is that worth the watch? Sounds like I'd probably drop like I did with WA2

 

Outbreak and maou I've just waited for them to finish so I could mow it down.

Yeah, it's all about the ridiculous dialogues.
You are missing out on something ;)

This is in fact the best anime award post ^o^

I just updated my battlestation back home! YESS!

 

Ok so I decided to use the big monitor as my 'main' monitor as I sit on the comfy couch, and then stick all the cables somewhere. Problem then was that there was a schiit ton of cables everywhere.

 

Panda time!

 

I got an old shoe box, cut some holes in it and threw everything in there.

 

 First picture, you can see the HDD, USB Hub, Mac charger and some various stuff

 

 My brother had a 'pedestal' for the Xbox 360 under the TV. I'm using it for my Mac now :D

 

 Inside the box. I'm dropping everything in there :D

 

 

The USB Hub, and Apple charger have been moved in. I'm stuffing all the extra cables into it.

 

And BOOM! Shoe Box battlestation beneath the TV. The extra cable leaving the box to the 'bottom' is my wired mouse.

 

Behind shot of the TV, Mac and my 'laptop' table that I put my keyboard and mouse on.

 

 I'm using my old Wireless Mechanical keyboard (White ALPS) on an old laptop desk.

 

Looks nice :D

 

 

HDD (2TB) with over 50 full anime on it? CHECK

USB HUB with the Wireless keyboard receiver and wired mouse plugged in? CHECK

Various holes for the APPLE charger cut out and plugged in? CHECK

Stuffing every other cable in? Check

 

Going to get a haircut now. But when I get back.

 

ANIME TIME!

Nice work!



I finally bought some more RAM.
Yaaaaayyy~
Next month: New graphics card!

post #99360 of 147584

How much NTR is in Nagi no NTR? I'm quite weak to NTR...so I don't know how I'll handle it.
