I finally got around to watch sailor moon classic... Why did nobody tell me it would end on such a brilliant way. Like a lot of anime OP songs never really fit the story or they are too obvious, but sailor moons theme song literally ties the whole series up and I feel a genuine conclusion to it all... Truly a the miracle of Romance

Do the 4 other seasons live up to the standard or should I live it now?

Was rewatching the old Berserk. I don't care what anbyone say I like it, even moreso than the manga.

No idea desu. I also watched the old Berserk anime recently and I liked it, I started the manga after though so I can't really tell which I prefer yet.

>>152463701
Yeah you should be fine with just the manga. And Armageddon is good. I'm personally not much of a Getter fan but Armageddon is really solid especially the first 3 episodes.

Actually watching Slayers for the first time right now. Im on episode 7 and its great. I heard it gets worse in the later seasons but im excited to have so many episodes left in the series. It was one of those things in my backlog ive put off forever so its nice to finally pop it open and enjoy.

Who is a good group to go for with Slayers? I've been interested in it a lot.

Just finished rewatching some Legend of the Galactic Heroes episodes but I've started the original Dragonball not long ago. I somehow never saw this despite them airing Z and GT here in the UK.

The old Dragonball is really great, you've been missing out!

I like the emphasis on humour and adventure a lot. Especially how Goku is so out of touch with modern day living and regards all scientific things as black magic is very hilarious.

>Who is a good group to go for with Slayers?
Anime-Supreme should be best for the old TV series, even though their encode isn't particularly great. Avoid Takeo84 for them, he doesn't know how to handle DVD sources. (like many encoder newfags)

Everybody is waiting for BDs there.

For Revolution and Evolution-R, any BD encode should do.

Finished watching Nadia yesterday. Amazing series, if you don't watch that shitty filler.
>>
>>152468861

I've seen plenty of Anno's works before but somehow I've never got round to watching either Nadia or Kare Kano, which would you advise I watch first?
>>
>>152468861
The filler is fine, and it's referenced in the real parts too, you can't really skip it.
The island is good for the first few episodes, until you get a bit tired of it and it gets more and more stupid and unrealistic. The village episodes people say are the worst, and episode 34 is great in its own way, completely unique and brings a lot of fun.
>>
>>152468907
I haven't watched Kare Kano yet. But after watching Nadia you notice a lot of stuff that Anno took and used in Evangelion. So if you're more of an Eva fan I'd say watch Nadia first.
>>
Is there a good release for Yu Yu Hakusho?
>>
>>152469184

I watch Evangelion around every New Year's or just after, in fact I've just finished my yearly watch not long ago so I'm going to look forward to it.
>>
Finally gave a try to Ace o Nerae and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie, it's fucking great.
The pacing was a bit too fast, but I expected it since it's basically a recap.
Should I go back to the original 1973 series, watch Shin or just jump to the Ace o Nerae! 2 OVA?
>>
>>152464391
I'll need to watch that sometime. Watching Green Gables now since I'm kinda on a Takahata binge. Might watch Lupin after or go back to finishing Ashita no Joe
>>
>>152469245
I've only seen the 1973 TV series, and I really liked it. I agree that it was good.
Wasn't even that long ago I saw it.

I hope that with all this recent interest in Ace wo Nerae someone will sub the rest of the series

Did anyone else enjoy Video Girl Ai (the manga, not the anime)?
>>
>>152469410
I'm not answering your question but taking this opportunity to say what I think about the anime.

Great romance in the middle,and I really enjoyed the insert songs. The first episode or two felt really generic, and the ending was super strange, one of the weirder endings I've seen.

A fun show from the 90's is Ping Pong Club which is pretty much /a/ the anime.
>>
>>152469451
The anime is pretty poor, I've watched it. The manga on the other hand is much more interesting.

It's fun, the manga is much more open about sexual stuff than your run-of-the-mill modern harem romcom, and yet the latter feel a lot dirtier. I think the author wanted to give a realistic representation of love, which includes eroticism, while modern authors pander to purityfags all the while inserting fanservice left and right.

The two OVA were actually broadcasted in Italy, as such I'm a bit tempted to go with the dubbed version while waiting for a decent sub even though I'm usually completely against dubs.

I watched Infinite Ryvius. It has rather high rating everywhere but I can't understand why. I went in expecting some kind of space opera. It took me about 20 episodes to finally realize that space is only the general setting, no sci fi shit is gonna happen and the main point of the story is just exploration of various ways a society can be governed or some pretentious shit like that. Even on that point the show never did anything original or at least interesting, it only showed the rabble getting angry on everything their democratic/authoritarian/insane leaders did. Then the stupid rape drama happened. At least the MC ended up with the best girl, though. Also nice soundtrack.

Finished Princess Nine. Very good.
>>
>>152477711
More about Princess Nine:
Brilliant artstyle. The animation was great, the colours were perfect. Good backgrounds, great character design. The girls all looked amazing, and also had that fresh, crispy 90s style to it, without going overboard with it. I also want to mention the eyes, some of the best eyes I've seen in anime. Overall, the visuals were absolutely amazing.
The background music was also really good, some good songs and something you notice, in a good way.

I really liked the anime overall too. For a long time, it bothered me a bit that it focused so much on romance and a bit on drama, but eventually it became a part of the series. In the earlier parts, the whole thing was just great fun, it really made me smile and felt a bit like a good cgdct, but with sports, drama and romance added to it. It also became really emotional. Everything built up the right emotions really well.
For a while, it looked like there was a risk of it ending really awkwardly or stupidly, but it managed to take the story to a proper conclusion as well.

All in all, it was a really good anime that I can strongly recommend, and it will become a staple in my top 90s anime lists, and just another example of how 1998 was a good year.
It gets a strong 7/10 from me, almost pushing into an 8.
Should be seen by way more people.

Now I want another season.

Maybe I'll just wait for another day
>>
I've always felt kind of bad for watching a bunch of Pre-2000 shows, because whenever I decide to watch one, I end up likg it alot.

Are my tastes just old fashioned? Has anime "gotten worse" or is it because it's just easier to go back and find an old great series, where as with newer ones, you have to wait and see?

Also, is Trigun better dubbed or subbed?
>>
>>152480071
Yamamoto Yohko is nice, but it can wait if you are not a fan of Shibo.

Never heard of Hummingbird though

If you want something nice from the 90s just watch Nadesico

>>152480278
Old anime has a cham to them, and maybe your nostalgia goggles are affecting you

>>152470292

I agree that Infinite Ryvius is supremely overrated. It's popularity mostly comes from the fact that a huge proportion of the anime watching audience just loves clusterfucks of insane characters breaking down in despair and madness regardless of the quality of the writing (see: Danganronpa's massive popularity). It was from the guy(s) who went on to make Code Geass and many other Sunrise trainwrecks, so it sets the stage for all the future stuff they'll make.

>>152478247

I like Princess 9 too, but my HUGE beef with it is the broken Aesop it engenders. Now, I went into it knowing that Japanese sports stuff is the polar opposite of American sports stuff, and that in Japanese sports that aren't blatantly shonen the main character/team often lose to prove a point.

Except P9 shoves down your throat the ventral theme of "Girls can play sports/ball JUST as well as boys do, the fact that they're GIRLS won't affect it at all!" It's the central tenet of EVERYTHING that happens in the series.

And then they get to the climactic final game.

And the ENTIRE team implodes, they lose and fuck up EVERYTHING, and it's all SOLELY because they're girls having girly drama, man issues, daddy issues, and girly girl drama.
>>
>>152480278
Male cast is great for the trigun dub, jap is probably better but the dub is good.
Everything was better in the 90s
>>
>>152480391
I've already seen the OVAs, so for Yamamoto Yohko it'd have to be the TV version. I don't really feel an urgent need to see it, I know I have plenty of good anime to see, I just want more of Princess Nine, at least the style, and I remember I liked the eyes of the main character in the OVAs, and that it was light hearted, so it was just something I loosely considered.

Also already seen Nadesico, so will have to watch something else. I may just stop watching for today and see if I want something tomorrow. Or, I think I am in the mood to be able to survive one OVA, perhaps. If I find one I want to see.

>>152480278
There is a pretty big change in style pretty close to exactly year 2000, at least. You may prefer the old style.

I always thought it was a Saint Seiya rip-off
>>
>>152470292
Did you read the synopsis before watching Ryvius? Its kind of general knowledge that Ryvius is just Lord of the Flies in space

>>152480490
I always thought Ryvius was obscure. Its from the late 90 early 2000 limbo that somehow people tend to forget about. The drama was actualy very good in the later parts for anime standards and none of the characters seemd crazy custerfucks nor insane and forced
>>
Does anyone remember watching Heidi the Girl In The Mountains?
>>
>>152480490
I didn't find that to be that big of a problem. I think the lady may have been wrong in that being girls won't affect anything, but it isn't that wrong. I don't know if the breakdown was due to them being girls, either. I think they had some good development. Uhm. Or something. And in the end, they got over their drama, and were able to play their best. A bit more experience, and they may make it the next time. And the final hit was simply that he beat her, nothing to be with being girls.
I was a bit worrried about the empty club room at the end, I was worried that it meant that they quit. But I don't think they did.

One thing that was strange though, was the visit by aliens. It was overall a pretty realistic anime, so suddenly aliens felt a bot weird. At least it was subtle enough that you can imagine it being something else.

KOR is a favorite, and the 80's atmosphere is terrific. I also recommend Maison Ikkoku as another classic in a similar vein.

A couple of weeks ago I saw Jewel BEM Hunter Lime. Not bad, it was pretty entertaining. No masterpiece, but good enough. Had no ending though. So now I know about two VN adaptations that don't suck ass... (the other being Steins Gate)

>The drama was actualy very good in the later parts for anime standards and none of the characters seemd crazy custerfucks nor insane and forced

>The MC's initial girlfriend (Fina?) is a relatively ordinary girl with no overt issues, especially when compared to some of the other psychos on the ship...Until it's revealed towards the end that she's a ""literal"" psychopath cultist murderer out of nowhere.

The MC's best friend who would be the Umehara romcom brodude in any other series whose got a level head and is relatively unimportant...Until it's revealed he was part of an incestuous rape suicide when he was younger and he goes flipping off the wall Hitler youth sociopath/psychopath dictatorial tyrant insane and fucks everyone over.

>Airs Blue and his crew being literal psychos from the beginning who somehow have been able to get along in public society and somehow got into the school in the first place.

>MC's brother who is a reeeeeeeee screaming autist from the very start of the series whose ONLY two mindsets are "I fucking hate EVERYTHING grrrrrr" and "I REALLY fucking hate my brother GRRRRRRR", man why aren't I beating the shit out of SOMETHING right now

>The entire 'crew' being the biggest, most useless, "we are only here to constantly serve as an angry pitchfork mob" from the start of the series to the end

>That bridge guy from the original 'elite' class who thinks he's some manipulative keikaku chessmaster from LoGH or Shakespeare and acts like a SS gestapo psychopath, albeit clandestinely, the entire time

The MC and the one sane, elite bridge girl are the only likeable, and sane, characters in the whole series.

What's worse is that after all the insane nonsense that happens, we're asked to believe that, like, a few months later or less the ENTIRE crew, many of which despised and wanted to rape and murder each other just said "Let's forget EVERYTHING, we're SUPER friends now!" and got BACK on the ship again.

Also, I agree with this guy on most of his points. I didn't want to write a long post, so I will just second this. It is pretty close to my opinion on some characters. And I would like to point out again that the RAPE DRAMA was just plain stupid.

Infinite Ryvius is Lord of the Flies in Space. It doesn't present itself as a space opera, strictly speaking, so those are some odd expectations. I think the exploration of different types of societies was quite interesting, so criticizing just because you feel the idea is "pretentious" sounds rather...shallow. I'd also argue you're definitely simplifying things a lot. There was no actual rape either.

>>152480490
So it sounds like you also happen to dislike Danganronpa then? In either case, Infinite Ryvius doesn't have much in common with the Sunrise shows you're casually name-dropping so that statement is very awkward to read. It's not structured like Code Geass in any real way. There are a couple of crisis situations where characters do have to face tensions and conflicts, but that's not really "insane characters breaking down" for no real reason like you're suggesting here. I'd say the writing worked well in terms of the character dynamics including the changing alliances and rivalries between the crew.
>>
>>152481539
The show actually does foreshadow that guy's past as well as his tendencies even before he actually gets some position of power, so it's not an unjustified development.

Blue and his gang are literally teenage rebels who are trying too hard. Though I'll grant you their presence on the ship can probably only happen in an anime series.

However, the existence of mob mentality and teenagers with autistic tendencies is surprisingly realistic. LOGH did not invent characters who are control freaks with fascistic tendencies either.

The main character has his own flaws as well as the elite girl. Moreover, their emotions were affected by the ship so that's a factor we can't ignore here.

It sounds like you had some trouble understanding the final episode or simply didn't like the general idea. Honestly, it's not about all of them being friends and ignoring the past. Not at all.

Those who came back, which isn't even the entire crew, have been changed by the experience. Their actions in the epilogue are supposed to represent their intention to face their fears and overcome them. It's not meant to be a literal repetition of the scenario in every shape or form.

Fina showed signs of instability since the beginning but was very subtle. She was way too clingy and manipulative and sprout some religion nonsense time to time, she becoming full yandere cult leader wasn't too out of place

The whole Ikumi (MCs friend) plot was indeed rushed as fuck

Blue and his gang weren't literal psychos, they were just edgy teenager anarchists

MCs brother is also just edgy angst teen but is plausibly explained why. He didn't take his parents divorce very well and it made him go full "reeeee i hate my brother" because he saw Kouji as a passive faggot who never did nothing and just went with the flow. He then tries to antagonise his brother in everything since "hurr durr i'm more mature" and "my brother is such a pussy reeeee"

The crew being incompetent was just so Blue could hijack the ship and get the plot going but at least is belivable since, in the end, the crew were just a bunch of unskilled kids

The dude being all keikaku doori started as cold and calculating then degraded to full nazi as time went on

Thing is, Ryvius is not the most realistic thing ever written and some times it was exagerated, but imo, wasn't full of bullshit and "impossible" things to happen. The whole premise was "what young people would do when pushed to the edge of mental stress" and it did a good job on that. Maybe I'm seem to much, but I think Ryvius did a good job with what it intended to do

>What's worse is that after all the insane nonsense that happens, we're asked to believe that, like, a few months later or less the ENTIRE crew, many of which despised and wanted to rape and murder each other just said "Let's forget EVERYTHING, we're SUPER friends now!" and got BACK on the ship again.

Yeah, that was kind of bullshit

>So it sounds like you also happen to dislike Danganronpa then?

I don't hate DR out of principle, I like the setups and I have a soft spot for Battle Royale/survival game stories. The thing I hate about the DR series is its horrible, insipidly stupid writing, made worse by the creator(s) constantly making it clear they're writing it as stupid as possible ""ironically"" (in the 4chan use of the word).

Danganronpa 1 was (a) an experiment by a bunch of people who had never made anything like it before and (b) and more impoprtantly, ENTIRELY a satire made to jab fun at people who like those kinds of stories. It answered almost no questions, and the ones it DID answer the answers made little sense in context and only raised a lot more questions which were never intended to have answers. Junko wasn't intended to be some multi-faceted Joker-esque memester, she was a parody/satire on "Oh. the audience is wondering the WHOLE time what the mastermind is like, what type of personality they have, what drives them? Let's give them no definitive answer just to troll them."

It wasn't until after DR1 took off like hotcakes that they went "shit, we'd better try and make some sense of this mess". DRZero was them trying to inject a BIT of logic into it and explain some stuff, but failed completely because it mostly makes no sense and contradicts itself and the main series several times over.

So they just gave up and focused on writing the stupidest, most nonsensical shit imaginable, because by that point it was clear that's what the DR fandom loves, so long as all the characters go insane and spout memes. DR2 breaks the 4th wall, not once, but 2 or 3 times with the creators essentially going "we know this story makes no sense, but ignore that". Each work that comes out in the series creates more inconsistencies even going by the series' OWN twisted logic.

Way TL:DR, but that's what I hate about it.

I've only seen the OVA, and not You're Under Arrest either, but Aa Megami sama is not good. The characters have no chemistry, everything that happens is completely generic, and the gimmick doesn't change anything. The only good parts of the OVA is one race and the opening theme.

Yeah it's based on an Italian puppet show so the mouse looks strange on 2D

What I find hilarious is that the original show the anime is based on is for pre-schoolers, literally a show for babies but the anime turns it into a Tom and Jerry rip-off and the mouse is an alien genius from the future while in the original show he is a "normal" kid like Alvin and the Chipmunks for example.

It's just too bizarre.

I finished Magical Taruruuto. Easily one of the most entertaining things I've seen in some time, and Renascent's encode looks outstanding for a DVD.

It's one of the somewhat rare magical boy shows, with generally great writing, voicework, and visual direction, that mostly uses the magical aspect as a vessel for comedy and excuse for inserting every flavor of fetishism you could imagine, although it does delve into some very bizarre serious arcs.

Downside is it isn't translated, but I'd figure I'd fish around and see if anybody else has seen it here.

You can see a lot of Eva in Kare Kano as well. Obviously not the giant robots or religious imagery, but the direction, mood, and even introspection is all there at some point or another. And the thing is, as much as I love Evangelion, Kare Kano was somewhat of an evolution of that style. You can really tell that Anno grew as a director. Now whether you like the plot or the characters is another question all together, but Kare Kano really made me wonder what an original post-Eva Anno anime would look like, but sadly I don't think we'll ever know.

I just really wish Anno didn't do the Rebuilds and did something else. The Rebuilds were completely unnecessary, and Shin Gojira showed that Anno isn't the hack the Rebuilds make him look like. I really hope he does another anime some day.

How does Godzilla compare to his earlier works? I'd imagine that it would have been much more nihilistic and destructive if done 20 years ago or so.

Anno seems to still have done great things after Eva, only on a smaller scale (Love & Pop for example) which makes it less heard of.
Though I'd imagine that, seeing Rebuild, he did get more mood and maybe less daring.

Currently watching Galaxy Express 999 and Maison Ikkoku

999 has a melancholic atmosphere which i like and it sorta reminds me of kino's journey except it has this light heartedness in it. im really enjoying it but i can see the complaints over it saying it's repetitive and it may seem preachy with the episodes with "muh mechanical bodies are bad" but im pretty forgiving for those flaws and really enjoying the journey. there are high points and low points throughout the episodes but when the show gets on its high points it's just..damn.
i also bet maetels hugs feel really motherly and warm.

as for maison ikkoku im only a couple of episodes in and i honestly find it pretty boring. i thought it was going to be like honey and clover when i read the description. i don't really enjoy many of the characters other than Yotsuya who i think is pretty funny. Kyoko a cute and she has very birthing hips.

Galaxy Express 999 is one of the ancient monuments of anime-a masterpiece. The series is very close to creator Leiji Matsumoto's original manga stories, almost a Twilight Zone anthology of fantastic characters and situations on the road to Andromeda. The ruminations on eternal life are more relevant than ever in our era of Singularity and robots. GE999 is often tragic, in a tough universe with few happy endings, with a real beauty in its allegory for life-a story full of lost dreams and heroes doomed to sleep for eternity beneath the blowing dust of some forsaken whistle stop along the tracks.

The 999 movies are masterworks-Rintaro's direction deftly distills the essence of the story into theatrical gold, with big guns like Yoshinori Kanada's expressive animation and Kazuo Komatsubara's art direction.

On MI, you should stick it out. It's a detailed portrait of 80's Japan that I never tire of...real nostalgia for a time and place you've never lived through.

I don't want to spoil anything, but the climax it reaches is one of the finest I've ever seen in any anime and beyond.
So rarely does a climax live up to all the hype and tension that has been built and at the same time be so true to the characters.
Just watch it.
Then watch the OVAs. They are a distinct drop in quality of story, but do have a few good episodes that make it worthwhile.

So I've watched the original Gundam series and Zeta but I'm having trouble getting into ZZ (it's slow as fuck to start), as much a I want to continue the series I'm caught between abandoning ZZ for Wing (which I've wanted to rewatch) or start watching The Origin cause Char is best character
>>
>>152498763
That budget got Linna and Nene, too.
And did 2040 get a BD or a remaster? Those shots look a hell of a lot better than the old DVD rips I have.
>>
>>152498780
If you're having problems with how slow ZZ is then you'll pull your hair out with Wing, but for different reasons.

And I'm not sure if it's just me but I really didn't like Origin and Char is one of my favourite characters of all time. Something about it just felt really cheap, especially when it came to characterisation.

Both have their merits, Original's animation is god-tier, a few good tracks on the ost, interesting stories and better robot/tech designs.

2040 has a god-tier cyberpunk soundtrack, I think the main cast are better written, and a few of the episodes depict genuinely well written, grounded stories for the setting, like Look At Yourself breaks my heart every time I watch it, plus the OP and Credit tracks/animation are amazing.
>>
>>152479419
Fuck yes, I still have the DVD.
>>
>>152498876
Origin's problem is that it's screaming through Char's backstory under the assumption you're already intimately familiar with and downright in love with him so it never bothers to give him any proper development or motivation.
It just feels clinical and by the numbers as it rattles its way down a checklist just to get to the start of 0079.
I really WANT to like it does have good moments like Ramba Ral's backstory and Dozzle being pretty adorable, but on the whole, it just doesn't come together in a pleasing way.

2040's soundtrack is fucking disgusting and you should kill yourself immediately.

Key has quite a bad problems with pacing. If I remember correctly it has 1 or 2 episodes at the end that are just pure info dump where characters are explaining the story and nothing else happens. And yet normal episodes are kind of slow-paced. The show sure could use better direction and writing in this regard.

It has its atmosphere so I guess it is still worth checking out if it is your thing or not.

It's a slow burn to be sure, but the plot moves forward regardless.
The final two episodes are feature film-length(okay, 90 minutes) and only one of them plops you down on a bench for 30 or so minutes to explain the backstory.
It's not as bad as most people say. But it's not like modern shows kids are used to with the hyperactive pacing to keep their ADHD-addled brains occupied.

It tends to follow the common Tomino trend of starting fast, then hitting the brakes and dragging its heels for 30 episodes, then wrapping up in a breakneck pace that's still not satisfying so you have to watch the movie.

I actually liked the way the TV series' dub handled the Dragon Slave incantation, giving it a rhyming scheme and all.

>>152499563
Other way around for me, the tonal shift was when it started living up to the hype. Had it kept using the exact same "Vash acts like a cowardly buffoon" joke every episode from beginning to end I might have hated it deemed it overrated puerile nonsense, but I really loved the deep themes and clashing ideals and morals between Vash and Knives.

Excel Saga is worth watching, but the humor can be grating if you're not prepared for the fast-paced delivery and hyperactive nature of Excel herself. And of course, a lot of the humor is steeped in Jap culture, including a joke about sarin gas in a subway(would be censored in later releases).
I found it hard to marathon. Needed to stop for a breather in between episodes.

I am not that guy you are replying to. I don't really think Sonoda's style is that generic. But I would say that Sonoda's style is kind of iconic to the 80s to the point it may seem "generic 80s". Well, at least to the western anime fans since the series he did some designs for are relatively well known on the west. His style is very easily recognizable, that alone doesn't make it generic in my book.

It's still chock full of the tropes that have become cliche in the shoujo genre, but most of them became cliche because of Rose of Versailles.

I don't know what I'd classify Leda as other than an animator's pet project.
It's fun and well worth watching, but the story is a bit of a mess and the whole plot revolves around her finding the courage to talk to some boy. Spoiler Alert! She does.
But a lot of OVAs were greenlit for proven animators to prove why they're not writers. Great for style and flash, not so great for substance.

Me too. It's one of those series it's a true shame to miss.

Is it worth watching the other seasons? I watched the first City Hunter and liked it, but I felt by the end it had overstayed its welcome, as with the first episodes I was expecting something more serious.

Man, pre-2000s anime girls always look prettier than most modern anime girls. So much detail is put into them.

Ah, right. My bad. Anyhow, I wonder what they're including on it and if they're including the dub OPs & EDs, but they're probably not gonna. Does't really matter as I did include them myself with my rather mediocre encodes.

Watching slayers atm, loving it. Finished the 3 series and OVAs, going through the movies. Scared of the purported drop in quality in the latter seasons though...
>>
>>152501771
First season was a total gag comedy, whereas later on they got more serious, while still keeping some of the recognizable humor, so yes it is totally worth to watch it.
Don't forget movies/ovas, they are great too.

Revolution / Evolution-R looked like it had pretty gud quality.
>>
>>152501456
Seen it, enjoyed it. Gakusaver's twist just had more oomph to it due to the non-serious nature of the show.
>>
>>152501809
Revo/Evo-R weren't THAT bad. It's just that they introduced Pokota(the Jar Jar of Slayers) who was obnoxious in every scene but Revo was still mostly tolerable and it scratched that Slayers itch. Evolution-R got really bad because it pushed Pokota to the center of the story and he never got better. Not to mention that it just rehashed Rezo for no reason other than they wanted to use Rezo.

In the end, they're worth seeing if only to make up your own mind.

Then you might want to grab the 720p rip instead of that awful DVD hard-subbed encode if that is what you have stored.

My apology, I always kinda go for anime stills, cause they are all nice and in color, even when manga is just as awesome, or even better.

The show is front to back melodrama, so I dunno what that says about the manga.

God tier taste here.

Favorite OSTs?

For me anything Rumiko, Go Nagai, and YYH are my favorite.
>>
How is Slayers without Naga? I've only seen the specials where it's just Lina partnered with her and their chemistry is fun as fuck.

Just finished Sorcerer Hunters.

Why doesn't /a/ ever mention this series?

More growth because it actually advances in time rather than being an indeterminate space of time repeating the same "lol so flat!" joke ad nauseum.
>>
>>152504958
Main arcs are best. Naga arcs are nice but they age like huge saggy tits.

/a/ is too underage betafaggots to handle strong women like Chocolate and Tira.
Also, the show really isn't that great. I love it as a guilty pleasure, but it's still pretty trashy and that ending was a colossal cocktease.
>>152505038
Seconding this. Larry is best girl.
You should read the manga. Excellent work in that, even if the second manga, Burst, kinda sucks.

Absolutely.

Oh wow! I watched that series in 50mb .rmb or whatever that extension was files.

Maybe she can duet with Miku in the new release!
