So what are you watching from before the year 2000 /a/?
I just finished Takarajima yesterday—fantastic adaptation of a timeless classic. I was really impressed by the series, especially its ending. I think it had an even greater impact seeing as I haven't read Treasure Island.
Going to get back to finishing up Fang of the Sun Dougram now, and then maybe start on some Leiji Matsumoto series, preferably Harlock or Galaxy Express 999.
I started watching the 1999 HxH anime. The budget is noticeably much smaller but I like the style of the characters and the backgrounds. The soundtrack is sometimes really fucking terrible, though.
>fantastic adaptation of a timeless classic.
>I haven't read Treasure Island.
how do you know how good an adaptation it is and that Treasure Island a is a timeless classic if you haven't read it, you pretentious dipshit?
Finally got around to starting pic related. Not that far in yet, but I'm excited. If Penguindrum is anything to go by I expect this to be
>how do you know how good an adaptation it is
Yeah, I can't personally attest to how close it is to the novel, though I've read that it's a fairly close adaption, but judging the series by its presentation, story, and characters, it's pretty fantastic.
>That Treasure Island a is a timeless classic
I don't think me having read it or not makes any difference whether or not it's considered a classic.
>Mobile Suit Zeta Assburgers Gundam: The Slappening
In that order.
Greatest Love Story Ever Told
Just finished Season 2 of this.
It's pretty great.
Yeah, it's a reference to Jim overhearing Silver's plot after falling in a barrel while going for an apple.
Watched Honnemayonaise today, it was pretty good.
Needs more brown girl Shinji.
Can't have too much pre-2000 Gainax.
Noriko wants to save him so hard.
Oh and the new episode of Patalliro.
I finished Lum the Forever recently, what a disappointment.
Tenchi Universe. i know it's it's own continuity, but after watching through the Ryo-Ohki OVA thrice my whole life, it feels kinda off. Washu especially. i appreciate kiyone & Miho-Washu though.
Tokimeki Tonight subs never.
Giant Gorg, thanks to your 3x3 post yesterday. It's really good, i like it a lot.
Glad you're enjoying it. Gorg is a fun ride throughout.
Just finished Gokudo. Loved both the show itself and Rubbete.
Though I have some problems with it abandoning certain parts of the novel.
watching LOGH at episode 11 atm...but just can't get into it
its not like its shit but its just...nothing really makes me want to watch the next episode
when does it git gud?
reminds me of Code Geass too much
I kind of want to attempt watching anime that aren't subbed or dubbed but I'm not exactly sure which titles are besides when others say so.
I recently downloaded Zillion and Romeo's blue skies. I watched the first episode of Densetsu idol Eriko and liked it but I can't find a well seeded torrent of it so that's all I was able to watch.
>tfw Conan is more badass than every anime protagonist of 2014 combined
Carlos is a newtype.
I downloaded that 66GB torrent of Macross from Nyaa after hearing the opening of it on youtube one day. I don't think there is an anime opening out there that is more majestic and grand that Macross' opening.
I'm trying to watch all of Yoshiaki Kawajiri's directorial works because I love his sense of sense of style, so far from what I've seen these are the best to least best (they were all enjoyable to watch though); Ninja Scroll > Cyber City Oedo > Wicked City > Goku Midnight Eye > Demon City Shinjuku
I've yet to see Neo Tokyo, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, and Lensman. I don't think I'll bother with Highlander since it doesn't look like it was cel animated, and looks cheap.
started this week pretty fun so far.
Plan to watch Shadow Skill and Flame of Recca as well.
I'm trying to work my way through Galaxy Express, but I've stalled around episode 15. Does it ever stop being so damn depressing?
Every episode seems to follow a pattern:
1. Get off train for no good reason.
2. Everyone attempts to rape/kill you. Because why not.
3. Haul ass back to train.
Honestly this makes Votoms look cheerful.
Endless Orbit SSX
That's a really fuckin fruity way of saying you like hearing a Japanese man yell MAH COO ROSS MAH COO ROSS
>Ninja Scroll > Cyber City Oedo > Wicked City > Goku Midnight Eye > Demon City Shinjuku
For me it's:
Cyber City Oedo > Goku Midnight Eye > Ninja Scroll > Wicked City >Demon City Shinjuku
Good taste I guess. Character-wise I think Cyber CIty is best out of the bunch. They say that Goku ep.2 is better than 1, but I think otherwise. Ep.1 was a lot more atmospheric and creepy to me.
>They say that Goku ep.2 is better than 1, but I think otherwise. Ep.1 was a lot more atmospheric and creepy to me.
Yeah, Goku ep.1 was my favorite too.
Finishing Rose of Versailles tonight and marathoning the last couple episodes, I have 5 left.
>Andre going fully blind.
>Oscar might have some terminal disease.
I never asked for this. Then again I never expected a show about the French revolution to be all around happy.
Currently downloading Giant Gorg now, really love the look of the design of the mecha. How are Brosubs since i've got those for the first 8 episodes?
Might rewatch the Bubblegum Crisis episode about Priss and her lesbian killer robot lover friend later on since i've felt like rewatching that sometime this week.
>How are Brosubs since i've got those for the first 8 episodes?
They're fine, but the first fine episodes have revisions out by TSHS. Here's the pastebin with them all. It's up to date with all the releases.
