:shock: :o

2018 is off to a good start! I wonder if it was ever any good. I've just watched like 3 minutes and I can already feel this was a genuinely good show! Glad it wasn't just nostalgia that made me think it was good :D

I need too get around to watching the Japanese sub version some day just to see how different the western dub version really was because apparently they didn't have the full scripts to translate from and just made a lot of it up as they went along :lol:

As I understand it the Japanese version is a lot less comedic in nature.

The dub theme tune was also sung whilst drunk I believe.

That's from Citrus, right? Should I watch it? I was worried it might be 2serious4me but the gif seems to say otherwise.

It's a bit cereal but watch it anyway.

One thing I want to watch is Cardcaptor Sakura. i never saw it growing up and there's a new series which debuted and is apparantly very good!

The thing with Samurai Pizza cats got me wondering what other shows from my childhood might be on Youtube and I found they had Kassai and Luk! But it's in French :x

Damnit!



Did they have it in the UK? I remember watching it before going to school in the mornings.

Dagashi Kashi season 2 Episode 1 was funny, but the new animators have changed the character designs for imo the worse :(

Started watching Devilman: Crybaby. I was expecting it to be more like the old Devilman anime. It's very different if memory serves me well.

That sounds great - thanks, JMJ.

I hadn't known that there was a follow-up. I have the English (Viz Media) paperback books 1-4; and I believe that the fourth book only came out just before Christmas. I'll keep an eye open for Ghoul:re and Platinum End. Thanks again!

So, two years ago this month I started Tokyo Ghoul, mentioned it here and Jay kindly shared some thoughts. Stuff then happened and I stopped reading for no good reason. But - here in 2018 - I've returned to the series and I'm reading book two. It's ace and I have also picked up the first two books of the subsequent "Re:" series for when I've finished. Tokyo Ghoul is back in my life :toot: .

I watched some anime where a kid gets sent a parcel from his dad who is an adventurer or something travelling around the globe and it's a coffin (not a sarcophagus!) with a tiny mummy in it who he befriends.

I missed this when posting about the Humble Bundle sale as I just quickly popped on to post, my apologies.

Glad to see you're back to enjoying it, Jawa. You should stop by from time to time to update us on your progress with the series. :wub:

A lot has happened in :re since our earlier discussion but it is still going strong, albeit likely leading up to the finale.

Puck?

-Miura is happy for an excuse to draw something less detailed for once what with the effort he puts into everything else.

-He feels he needs some form of comic relief to take the edge off the rampant child murder and rape.

It gets to the point where the fairies are just drawn that way by default and they only go detailed in the very rare circumstances they say something worthwhile.

Seems interesting.

I'm watching My Girlfriend is Shobitch, it's pretty funny, and it's on Amazon Prime, finally some good anime!
