My current thinking is to stick to mangas and movies for as long as I can, just because after whizzing through 30 volumes at breakneck speed, the glacial anime is absolutely killer for me. I'll probably watch big fights on youtube where I feel the need, but I can do without waiting for people to read out the dialogue at 1/10th the speed I can read it, then standing around making noises like they need a shit for five minutes to convey what the manga gets across in a panel Laughing

I suppose the relative scarcity of the manga back in the day and the fact it was aired on Toonami regularly is why I'm a sucker for anime. Super is a lot better, as is Kai in cutting the chaff.

Anything on Crunchyroll, I should check out a part from Persona 5? I really should actually watch all the anime I can on Netflix first though as there is tonnes like One Punch Man which seems like the sort of Anime Athrun was talking about after the gateway stuff like Cowboy Bebop to watch.

Oh, loads:

Stuff I've Watched and Liked: Attack on Titan, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Ace Attorney, Dragon Ball Super.

Stuff I've Heard is Good: My Hero Academia, Hunter x Hunter, Psycho Pass, Hajime no Ippo, Junji Ito Collection, Berserk.

I'm definitely meaning to read Berserk at some point.

It's a huge inspiration for Dark Souls - it's why you see nine million characters named Guts wandering about Lordran.

I can vouch for Psycho Pass. It's a good show that deals with some interesting themes, even though I imagine most people who watch it will just compare it to Minority Report. Kogami, the show's lead enforcer, is a real Mary Sue though.

I wouldn't call Kogami one myself, typically to be a Gary Stu one has to be a perfect little self-insert of a snowflake and skilled well beyond what they have any rights to be, none of which applies to Kogami. If anything Akane would fall closer to the trope, but even then with how society works in Psycho-Pass it's perfectly believable she'd end up where she ended up and have the talents she has.

Now if you said he was boring at times I'd totally agree with you. I do like where his character arc went in the final seven or so episodes however.

I really need to rewatch season 1 and check out the movie while I still have access to the blurays from a friend. Haven't watched an anime in a while, maybe I'll change that with Psycho-Pass.

I suppose it's been a long time since I binged the show so labeling him boring might well be more accurate, a cursory google reveals I've forgotton most of his backstory. My main memories of him revolve around him being the best athlete, fighter, and a sniffer dog with unbelievable skills of intuition. I get that the set up of Psycho Pass is about Enforcers with uncanny intuition, and that there is a plot explanation for all of this, but for whatever reason I'm much cooler on Kogami's skill over a character like L of Death Note.

Dark Souls takes inspiration in terms of cool demon designs, big swords, and dealing with the societal implications and diseases allegories of an undead curse. It does NOT take inspiration from Beserk's awful gender politics and overuse of violence against women and rape as a cheap narrative device.

Glad to hear it. I didn't recall any DS mentions of sexual violence, but like everybody who hasn't read Berserk the bit I'm most familiar with is that bit. Pale

Going back to the Dragon Ball stuff, I died and went to heaven yesterday.  I will always and forever love the dub's Perfect Cell theme.  And just dub Cell in general, Dameon Clarke's performance was so good.  

Spoilered in case Drunka hasn't seen what Cell looks like.  Probably best to avoid the tag until the end of the arc.:

I finished watching One Punch Man and it's damn good that like I said I would move on to Neo Yokio like Andy said, well I watched episode 1 last night and I'm not convinced but it's only 6 episodes so I will watch it all.

Did also watch Pom Poko yesterday which was very Studio Ghibli.

I watched Aggretsuko last night, it's really good and basically it's Hello Kitty x Baby Metal x Night in the Woods that it's getting a recommendation from me.

I also watched that somewhat recently. It was alright, the short episodes definitely helped it as I felt like it became a bit of a one-trick pony after a while. Most of the episodes made me and my girlfriend laugh though. Sincerely believe the season finale was in the wrong place and should have been swapped with:

Hahaha, you've got to be kidding! I mean, I watched all of that quite a while ago but it was more a 'can't stop watching because I can't quite put my finger on just why it's all so, so... [Muss.exe has hit a critical error]

But that feeling of not quite being able to understand how it exists makes it the best thing of all time.
