    Default G General Anime Discussion - Typing FINGER!

    Last time on General Anime Discussion: the similarities between Pokemon and other series are discussed, UltraDude reveals his evil plans, Artemician admits that the new Nanoha movie trailer disturbs him, Tengu learns that he sucks at writing funny introductions when he's in a hurry! What awaits our heroes? Stay tuned.

    I am so glad I rewatched the first two Nanoha series recently (read: last week) and plan on rewatching the third after exams...I forgot just how epic lolis with beam spam and laser scythes were...

    The movie looks pretty cool...Even if it's just a retell of the first series I'll be happy, the first series was epic...As was the second...

    Damn it, why didn't I think to restart the thread?

    Also, viewing the trailer will have to wait, but a retelling of the meat of the first series minus the rather pointless "just your regular everday magical girl" filler of the first ~6 episodes would be very cool. Especially if they a) up the animation quality and b) drop the panty shots.

    No... no it was not.

    I would not watch the movie, the first season, or the third season even if you paid me.

    That's your opinion.

    Speaking of Nanoha, 4th season's here in manga form. So far there's only one introductory short, but I'm looking forward to more. Reinforce Zwei is apparently human-sized now, and one of the locations referenced will sound very familiar to SRW fans. Also, some new characters - I guess they'll cut into Erio and Caro's screentime even further.

    The thing is, Rapture, we're all quite aware your opinion on the series already, and you mentioning it over and over again is quite annoying. I can sympathize, especially due to my own experiences in TTGL discussions. But really, could you try to cut it down a little

    MORE characters?

    I swear, there needs to be a culling, and soon.

    It makes your posts look arrogant, like if you presented your opinion as a fact and wanted to enforce it on everyone who thinks differently.
    However, I only have such an impression because you mention it in like every post of yours that is about Nanoha.
    So in short, what Artemician said.

    I'm okay with lots of characters, as long as they get enough attention. Which is tricky to do. Anyway, it seems there will be only 2 new characters appearing, an as of yet unnamed boy and girl. Who might be love interests for each other - gasp, another token het pairing!
    Anyway, as I said, I won't be surprised if Caro and Erio get the shaft again. Or Zafira. Poor dog-man. Chrono was inconsequential from the start so I doubt he'll appear at all, except for a few cameos. Same for Yuuno - pity, really.

    In fact, I wouldn't mind if they focused on old neglected characters instead of introducing new ones. But hey, it's Gundam and each series needs a new protagonist.

    So apparently there's new Haruhi.

    Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody, apparently.

    Well, I know what torrents I'm searching for the moment I get home from work. And I was just rewatching some Haruhi last night.

    Rogue, you have the dreaded "http.com" link madness. (Not quoting to fix because I don't want to see what's under your spoiler )

    Bah. Bah I say! I'll wait until there's a proper season underway before I start watching. Don't like getting things in dribs and drabs. (Come to think of it, has the latest Hellsing Ultimate been subbed yet...?)

    (edit: Plus at the moment I'm more anxious to see a DVD or other combined release of Haruhi-chan so I can start spreading it around.)

    Anyway, Nanoha looks... like they had more money and better animation. I'm a little put off that the transformation sequence looks frame-for-frame identical. But of course, the real issue will be whether they tighten up the plot and pacing.

    Ten kinds of awesome. Why on earth did they release this so subtlely? One would think there'd be huge announcements for something this big.

    It's Haruhi.

    Also, it will be the only thing all anime communities everywhere will talk about for a week or so. Cheapest advertisement ever.

    But mostly, it's just Haruhi.


    Also, a wild Nerd-O-Rama appears!

    Kyoto Animation are world-class trolls. People complain about shows like Gundam 00 or Macross Frontier trolling their audiences, but Kyoto Animation are past masters.

    And like Attilargh said, viral marketing. Though I'm sure it wasn't their intent, they also did this right at the start of Con season in America, so the audiences over here should be whipped up into a right frenzy pretty quick.

    (Nerd-o-ramas can be found in tall grass and caves with reliable server functions.)

    EDIT: Egads, my signature died. I should fix that now that it actually means something again.

    That damn Nanoha manga has me wanting to track down the drama CDs (assuming that's where this "Marriage Incident" takes place - and thanks to the Nano doujins all I can imagine is some huge Xanatos Roulette by Fate to finally win Nanoha's hand).

    So what does Nerd-o-rama evolve in to?

    My knowledge comes from various TVTropes pages. I think the spoilered point comes near the climax of something.

    Yup, Hayate is officially Sekuhara-chan. Imagine what will happen when she becomes the leader of TSAB.

    I was actually wondering should it be G General Anime Discussion, General Anime Discussion Destiny, or General Anime Discussion R2, but ultimately decided on the first and saved the other two for later. Of course, the current one is the fifth anime discussion thread, so after this one and those two we must have 08th General Anime Discussion Team.

    I remember having vague suspicions of Roy Mustang's connections to the TSAB when I saw Nanoha's new Barrier Jacket...

    Also, I have just read Negima. All of it. A thread was started for statting the characters.

    See that guy in the banner in my sig, on the right? He could be Jack Rakan's long-lost brother.

    I can't read the name of that "evil organisation that promotes war" without thinking of Gundam SEED.

    For the first few chapters I kept misreading Asuna's name with a "k" instead of an "n". Similarly, I somehow managed to misread "Nodoka" as "Hinata", and "Camo" as "Salem".

    I keep expecting Setsuna's wings to emit light.

    I would love to play in a high-powered Negima-based D&D game. Though I suspect my builds would be a lot simpler compared to yours.
