New Anime Season

And we have a winner for the most misleading credit animation of the show.

This is the openning credit of the Shonen fighting show Needless. Fairly typical, and from what I can tell, fairly honest.

This is the end credit of the same show (NSFW). I have no idea what they're drinking when they did this (the credit indicates that it's just 2 guys that did all of the end credit animation).

In other development, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood got through the all storyline including Greed in 14 episodes. Next week, the visitors from Xing, and well into manga storyline that never got animated.

For me, the fork in the FMA anime/manga story happened at Hughes' death.

Yeah, the 5th National Alchemist Lab incidents is where the divergence starts. The Rush Valley storyline, Greed gang is somewhat different. Albeit, those two storyline really got compressed with the new version. But next week, you're seeing the folks from the other side of the world all looking for the same McGuffin as everyone else, and the Xing folks never show up in the first storyline.

Oh, one more bit of spoiler: All Seven Homunculi are shown in this episode.

Well having read the manga (up through current) and watched the new anime, and also watched the whole first anime series, I can honestly say I liked the first FMA anime better, even though I still love the manga to death and the new anime is growing on me.

Watched the first episode of Canaan. The show could have promise. Not sure what is going on yet but I like the "style" of the show thus far.

Bakemonogatari roughly translated as Ghostory is 15 episode show (12 broadcast, 3 alternative broadcast) adopted from a light novel series from Shaft. This anime is currently one of the most searched title on Tokyo Toshokan, but there's currently only 1 English fansub.

The light novels are a serial format where our main character encounters different situtation (and girl) from each storyline. From what I can tell, they're adopting 6 stories, Crab (the current storyline), Snail, Snake, Monkey, Cat and possibly the prequel Vampire storyline.

Thus far, there is a whole tons of dialogue to go through, surprisingly, only 4 characters have spoken dialogue. There's also a lot of on screen writing that the fansubbers will need to decide whether to translate or not (most of them shows up for about 2 seconds and goes away).

The animation and the drawing are very interesting, and thus far,the story is weird, but in a good way.

Anything as good or better than non-dubbed Bleach?

Spice and Wolf II! Just as good as the first season, which is a relief.

On the Dub vs Sub issue.

I will go out on a limb here and say there are in fact English dubs that are very good. Even some i'd prefer to watch instead of subs. I will always prefer to watch a mediocre dub over a bad sub. And there are plenty of BAD subs out there.

On a related note. Bad kung-fu movies are ALWAYS better subbed.

As expected Xing seekers of the McGuffin shows up in this episode. Albeit, they short change May Chang's storyline, and just show you a small taste of Xing Alchemy rentanjutsu. The bulk of the storyline deals with Lin Yao's introduction in Rush Valley.

Can't wait for actual fansub to show up for this episode.

The 2nd OP for Bakmonogatari has come out. And it's as different from the first OP as it gets.

And all of them different from the prequel openning sequence in episode 1. And of course, there's also a new ending for this story arc as well.

This show is shaping up to be the best show of the summer, beating that never ending Endless Eight tripe.
