EDIT: There isn't a third season of Kaiji out. Why you gotta play with my heart like that broheim :(

Ah crap, sorry dude. For some reason, I always think of the first series as two seasons because of the setting change. My bad. God, I'd love a third season though.

Katanagatari's a fun one to watch. Only 12 episodes long, but they're long episodes (originally ran one episode a month, for a year). The basic story is that a guy and a girl go on a journey to collect 12 legendary swords. It's got a cool art style and a fun story, but has a lot of fighting and death. :yes:

Just finished watching High School of the Dead and Kill la Kill after being recommended them. Good God my friend likes pervy/ecchi anime. I mean ok yeah i finished watching what they had on Netflix as I kinda got sucked into them but still, there's no need for that many panty/boob shots.

Started watching Psycho Pass now - seems good so far.

I've not seen Kill la Kill, but jesus christ HSOTD was ridiculous. All I can remember is the bullet time boobie scene. :lol:

I don't quite think anything tops Fairy Tail for fan service.

Seriously, there are thousands of videos of it around :lol:

Kill La Kill tops anything fan service wise IMO, but it's so ridiculously over the top it just fits.

Latest Fate was a bit talky, but I'm glad they've explored the reasons behind Archer. Next episode should be a good 'un, I expect lots of Gilgamesh at the end.

I've recently found out that The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan has been animated. I'm up to episode 4. Thoroughly enjoying it.

I accidentally spoiled Archer on myself when I started watching Fate, but I'm glad they at least explained it now!

Also guys, watch Death Parade.


I'm not explaining it. Just watch it. It's reeeaaallllly good.

^ I saw the first two episodes. Looks like it's going to be cool.


Fate was just going through the motions this week, though the stuff happening behind the scenes from the main battle was good.

Up to ep 9 with Yuki now, it's very cute.

Also started watching Magical Girl Madoka Magica, which is like a cross between Fate, Card Captor Sakura, and a truck load of acid. It's good.

Fate/Stay Nights ending was...alright. A tad underwhelming, but I guess the budget ran out for the big fight scenes :P

Also the first episode of Dragon Ball Super was good, but I want to wait for the dub because I just cannot hack the Japanese Goku at all. Everyone else sounds fine, just not Goku.

Some other new shows that are out look good. Gangsta seems decent so far, especially if you're into stuff like Black Lagoon. Gonna be checking out God Eater and Overlord too probably.

At least a rough overview of Death Parade? I started watching Fate/Stay Nights, and it was okay. It didn't hold me though.

^ Without spoiling too much, it's episodic tales about people who have died, lost their memories, and find themselves in a classy bar (basically purgatory), and have to play games to decide their fate.

I just found out that I've not subjected the girlfriend to Kanon yet, so that will need to be remedied as soon as we clear some of our backlog. We watched the first episode of Dragonball Super, and I recognised Videl's voice actress as the same person who voiced Akiko (and Kouko from Clannad, and shittonnes of other roles).

DBS looks like it could be good. I need to find some better quality subs though, the ones I found were appalling.

She's started watching Ore Monogatari too, and wants me to watch it with her. We're rewatching Digimon S1 (we just got to Etemon), and Attack on Titan.

We also started rewatching CCS a while ago, but that's gone on the back burner.

Death Parade was a nice show to watch. Visually a little weird but I give anything points for a good colour palette.

If you're watching the fate series start with Fate/Zero. It's a prequel...and it's much more interesting than Fate/Stay Night.
