Dragonball Super is pretty good, I remember Z being almost nothing but yelling and powering uo for attacks, but this one is actually moving at a pretty decent pace.

Oh man, Qikz, you're so close to some amazing episodes in Part IV. The core group are probably a little less cool than the Stardust Crusaders, but they get up to some hilarious high-jinks and are equally as badass when the time calls for it.

Did you ever try Dragonball Kai, Rightey? Cut out so much of the powering up filler and reused animation it felt like a different show. I've been enjoying Super, but some of the arcs are painful to watch.

Nope, I've never seen Kai, just Z and Super. I think all the arcs so far are pretty good, although it is a little strange how they keep advancing through different colours. I'm on the Black arc now, and he's just gone Super Sayan Rose.

The only weird arc that I can think of so far, was the one with that magic water, it seemed very weird just to have those two or three episodes there, not really related to anything.

StayDead/others, have you been keeping up with Kemono Friends? The latest episode was genuinely a bit upsetting. :(

If you haven't been watching it you should -- on paper it's a load of total low-budget shite in every respect, but after the second episode you're hooked and it's all bizarrely compelling. Japan is going nuts for it, apparently.

I just watched ghost in the shell for the first time, really enjoyed it but suprised at its length. It felt like a short movie, I thought I would much longer. What should I watch next? The sequel ghost in the shell 2? there's like quite a few spin of tv shows/films. But yea ghost in the shell I give a solid 9/10. Incredible animations and environment backdrops, wow. Watching it made me realise that that metal gear solid and the matrix must have been inspired by this anime in a fairly big way . Not to mention many other films/franchises.

If you like things that inspire other things than look no further than Jojos Bizzare Adventure.

There's pretty much references to it in every anime and game made after it was released pretty much. :lol:

I second the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure recommendation. One of the best things about JoJo is when it randomly gets referenced in other Japanese media, even now it always brings a smile to my face.

The general consensus is to watch the second GiTS movie before watching Stand Alone Complex/SAC Second GIG and Solid State Society. Then there's GiTS:ARISE OVA's which add some more to the story but are apparently a feature some inconsistencies. I'm yet to watch the OVA's myself. Akira might be something to consider watching if you haven't seen it yet.

On another note I've been enjoying a couple of the new Shounen Jump series. We Can't Study/Never Learn is rather charming and hasn't gone shit-tier harem like Nisekoi, and as a big fan of Boichi I've found Dr. Stone to be a nice change of pace. Also stumbled upon new Berserk spoilers, so the new chapter wont be far off now. :mrgreen:

I've never understood why so many people adore that version of Part III, certain parts of the JoJo fandom will jump at you for any criticism of it. I know up until the recent David Production anime we'd take anything JoJo we could get, even if the quality was somewhat suspect... but that series. :dread:

How are you getting on with Part IV, Qikz? I recently stumbled across peoples live reactions on YouTube and have got hooked on seeing people freak out over certain moments. :slol:

Boku no Hero Academia anime starts again tomorrow. The manga has fast become one of my favourite series and quite often it's the series I look forward to reading most each week, it's quite the turnaround as I'd completely dismissed it for the first few months of its run. :fp:

I haven't watched any Part IV since the last time I mentioned it since my step brother hasn't been over.

Looking forward to watching more. That version of Part 3 though is awful and people should feel bad for liking it.

I normally think live action adaptations are pretty awful, but damn that was good. :lol:
