Most everyone doesn't consider it anime but Legend of Korra just premiered on Saturday on Nickelodeon. Its the next chapter in the Avatar: The Last Airbender setting. I have to say I'm pretty happy with the first two episodes. I am a huge fan of TLA (lets pretend the film doesn't exist) so seeing the story continue on is great.

First episode had a fantastic (if frustrating) moment.

Watched the Shin Kyoto Hen part 1.

They changed some parts of the original story...Like Usui getting killed by Shishio rather than having him fight Saitou. >=(

The Usui vs Saitou was one of my favorite fights in the original series, along with the Kenshin vs Soujiro and Kenshin vs Shishio.

Saw the first two episodes as well. I cannot help but wonder at one off-hand comment:

"My brother and most of my friends are gone." Moooooooooooost? Any particular exceptions we should be aware of? :D

Good question. From what I can recall, they didn't want to have too much of the old cast still around but it was nice to see Katara. I'd say if anyone, perhaps Toph is still around as an old maid someplace though with her daughter as the police chief, probably unlikely. Earthbenders seemed to be particularly long lived. King Bumi (Boomy? I unno) was well over 100 when Aang came back. I do hope to see at least brief mention of all the old cast and/or their descendents. Zuko and Mai's progeny, Sokka and Suki if they had kids, etc. I think they want their new cast to stand on their own and not have to stand on the shoulders of the old cast to make the show interesting (so far so good)

Yep. I think using Tenzin as the voice of the elders was a nice idea - he's an unknown, but can still boast enough of a link to the Gaang to be considered a representative.

Which got me thinking: we saw Ursa minor Geki on Saint Seiya Omega \o/

Awesome!

THE WHAT?
Sounds like a fake, source?

For "absurd anime": There's no "i've seen everything". There's just "until now".
This season brings us:
A cafè owned by a polar bear
An highschool in which the girls are assault rifles. Literally. (As in, they need oil, they shoot, on medic checkups they "crank"..., they jam up...)

Hmm...

I can't get into the mood to watch anime. I looked through the release calendar at anidb and couldn't find a single series that I was excited about either, except for some series that I already have been reading for quite a while as mangas. And those I already know what happens in so...

I am watching Hyouka atm, it's nice and slow-paced. But that's the only thing I'm really watching atm...


...but now speaking of something non-anime, the ending of season two was epic, right Klaudandus? ;) The power of love, hehe...

Have you checked the remixes? There's some awesome remixes for Love is in Bloom.

John de Lancie was doing recording for S3 -- So I hope more Discord.

The things I want the most out of S3 are actually two-part flashback episodes of
- The Discord Wars
- The Rise and Fall of Nightmare Moon (when it all started)

And considering they said there was an external factor that created NM, but did not mention Discord as being the cause, I wonder if there's another villain responsible for that -- and thus, another two-parter.

Also, a beach episode, just to be cliched, and a Scootaloo episode.

I'm having that problem with this season... I want to like Medaka Box because I like the manga but... it's just not compelling me to watch it.
