    Bubblegum Crisis OVA Blu-ray Direct Release

    Just a heads up rightstuf.com is having a "gotanime" sale and the BGC bluray is $23.97 today only 10/10 Save a $1 off Amazons current price of $25.19
  2. Goblin Slayer Ep 1 was pretty good. Apparently its only going to be 12 eps.. which is disappointing. As for Overlord.. I though the 3rd season was a letdown, I'd like to see a 4th season as well. The other series catching my eye is Tensei Shitara Slime Datta Ken which seems like it might be interesting.. Ep 1 was a good start, Ep 2 just came out. I am also watching Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl-senpai no Yume wo Minai, and so far the first episode has some promise. I will be honest though the whole bunny girl bit is what got me here.. just sayin. Besides the Index 3.. I think the other series that I started watching was Zombieland Saga and currently I am wtf? with that series after 1 episode.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    My Minmay figure arrived yesterday. I have been too busy to get a good look at it. I'll try and get some pictures when I get a chance.
  4. I finally got a chance to sit down and watch the Planetarian OVA's and then the Movie. IMO the Visual Novel was a better medium for this story, not to knock the OVA's but the pacing seemed to be off. Particularly the parts in the beginning between Yumemi and the Junker. The movie takes place after the events of the OVA's there is some new content here, however most of the movie consists of flashbacks to the OVA's. So much time is spent on the flashbacks that I think it detracts from the movie as a whole, with the new content introduced is overshadowed. Ultimately the end of the movie does wrap up the OVA's story but not without other questions going unanswered.
  5. Just wrapped up Gamers... now moving onto a rewatch of Martian Successor Nadesico.

    Hi-Metal R

    Been awhile since I posted in this thread... I feel behind again.. but this brings me current. I am still waiting on 2 more VT-1s.
  7. Surprised nobody else has posted this.. https://www.otakon.com/guests/shoji-kawamori/ I haven't been to Otakon since 2012.. and now since they moved to DC I have zero interest in attending. Hopefully you stand a good chance of getting an autograph if you go for it.. his last appearance at AX people got shorted.

    Hi-Metal R

    My first VT-1 just came in from HLJ.. I haven't had a chance to open it and check it out. I have 3 more coming from NY and Ami Ami.. 1 is a gift and the other 2.. just cause dragons.. lol
  10. Just wrapping up a rewatch of Utawarerumono False Faces.. I figured I would give it a rewatch after playing Mask of Deception.. Not a terrible adaptation, but the ending of the anime changed some pretty important details from the game. I honestly hoping they decide to animate Mask of Truth.. as the anime just is left hanging. The biggest detractions come from the Joke of a localization that Sentai did on this title... both dub and sub.. Seriously I would expect this from the likes of Bootleggers not an official release. I know the purists will probably flame me for this... but I'd recommend the anime if your never going to play the game.. it gets most of the main points correct.

    Calibre Wings 1/72 F-14D Diecast Macross Custom

    The VF-1D variant looks really nice.. I'd be down for one as well.. I see 1 on ebay but I am not paying that much for it. Anyone have any other leads?
  12. I'm still interested in seeing more of GE999. I have the DVD part 1 release from S'more or whatever they called themselves, and they never released anything else. I'm not sure I would double dip on the first part, but I would pick up the parts I did not have already on Blu-ray. Area 88 and KOR are also on my list.
  13. @Hikaru Ichijo SL with routes in Clannad you can save yourself from having to repeat routes to gather orbs.. for example Misae's route must be completed before Tomoyo's to get Misae's orb. Do Fuko's, Misae's, and Komura's routes before Tomoyo.. actually do pretty much everyone before Tomoyo is good advice. Save Nagisa's route for last.. as it will have some impact on afterstory, in your case you can always redo Nagisa's route before going into afterstory if you missed something. @AngelBird4 Some good choices there.. AICO was pretty good Subbed.. I heard the Dub is utterly horrible. BLAME is pretty good.. and Sidonia I just recently watched and enjoyed that. As for SBY 2202 being crap.. aww BOO I say.. BOO I am rewatching 2199 now.. was going to move onto 2202 after I rewatch the first one.
  14. I am currently towards the end of Tomoyo's route.. then Nagisa.. then the 3 routes of after story. Best routes so far.. Kotomi, Kyou, Tomoyo.. I still need to find Jet Saito.. probably do that before after story. So I did take notice that Kappei Hiiragi is completely left out of the Anime version of Clannad. He might be referenced in the extra Kyou/Ryou episode at the end.. but never by name nor does he make an onscreen appearance.
  15. @technoblue that is quite the opposite end of the spectrum from Steins Gate to Konosuba.. I have yet to watch SG0, I probably need a refresher on the previous series before I do.. or just go back and play the game again. Konosuba is great though, highly recommended. I finished Akashic records of bastard instructor.. or whatever.. meh.. Not a bad series but not really memorable either. on a VN note I am chugging along with Clannad on the PS4... Prototype didn't do alot of Q/A on the english localization.. there is some pretty glaring errors in different routes.. one of the funnier ones I have found.. I think this is towards the end of Kappei's route.. it gave me a chuckle.
  16. I just watched No Game No Life Zero. or the NGNL movie.. I was actually surprised I enjoyed it.. considering my disdain for this title. Not bad.. and you really don't need to watch the TV series prior to understand it. Moving on to Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor.. I remember seeing parts of this via Fansub I think in spring/summer of 2017. It wasn't bad but not great either. Giving it another go as I was just gifted the blu-rays for it.. The school uniforms are.... interesting.. lol.
  17. I also finished FMP.. I am tossed up on this one. The series started well and bombed out in the middle, then managed to bring itself back up to just "OK" at the end. My biggest gripe was the general animation quality.. several scenes come to mind.. Sosuke on the gurney in the church, Tessa in her quarters.. and Kaname's swimming fiasco. I think ANN gave it a B... and I think that is too kind.. I'd be hard pressed to give it a C... More like a C- or even a D at its lowest points. Now I am proceeding down the Fate Apocrypha path... seriously feels like Fate/Dead Horse again.
  18. So I started watching Fate Extra Last Encore.. It's pleasantly better then expected so far.. only 4 episodes in so far. I am surprised Netflix has this.

    Hi-Metal R

    I just grabbed it from NY.. MW is not healthy for my wallet.. lol
  20. Wrapped up Beatless and meh.. while not bad it never reached its potential and while technically it didn't have an ending the later episodes really fell apart with the plot going off the rails. It's hinted there is more... but I'm not holding my breath. DxD Hero.. I can't say this series is not predictable. While episode 11 was good, the series is still failing to catch the first season in regards to overall quality. But at least Hero is leaps and bounds over the last 2 seasons. FMP.. The animation quality is pretty bad.. its not even worth talking about the latest plot points.. thats how terrible it was. People are complaining about the AS sequences and I am dismayed by just the character animation in general... and it really rears its head in Episode 10. 3 times worth noting Sosuke when injured and in bed.. they kept panning to the same creepy and unnatural half head cocked view. 2nd.. When Tessa is back in her quarters.. it really gets sloppy and 3rd.. Kaname in the pool.. the animation just goes to crap..
  21. Just for the heck of it, I watched Knights of Sidonia.. I expected it to suck.. and was pleasantly surprised when it did not! They left it hanging though.. which I found annoying.. and several major plot points left unresolved... season 3 maybe?
  22. OK first off.. I want my 18 or so minutes back from watching that video... If I wanted my anime to be realistic.. I'd be watching TV.. and on top of that if i wanted to analyze and use logic to decipher problems.. I'd be at work... again Anime.. not real.. nuff said. Needless to say.. there are some good points made in regards to general plot progression.. however since this video was made before the latest episode (ep.20 as of this post) some of what he critiques is already obsolete. However after episode 20 at this point even I am trying to figure out what the hell I just watched..

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Just an FYI.. I reached out to Kitz Concepts awhile back inquiring about any additional releases of the TV Fokker 1S SD valk.. They kept telling me soon.. Well I just got a response saying that they should be putting it out again in Q3 2018.. Its the only SD Valk I have not been able to snag.. when it pops on ebay it's waaaaaay overpriced.
  24. I'd be willing to check out season 3.. This series was a strange one IMO.. I enjoyed Index... but I loathed Railgun, and the other spinoff with Accelerator or whatever his name was just seemed blah at best. Besides Darling in the Franx there is nothing out this season that I am real into.. FMP reboot is ok not bad but ok. Grancrest Senki.. while interesting is very rushed.. they went from a run.. to a mad dash. Megalo Box.. actually is pretty good.. High School DxD Hero... Meh.. Hinamatsuri.. Kinda funny, Kinda stupid Beatless.. It has potential, but it seems as if the shows creator is asleep at the wheel currently.

    Weapons Banter Thread

    The FS2000 could be very picky with magazines. As you discovered aluminum GI magazines worked the best. Our department had a handful of these to try out when they were exploring different patrol carbine options.. I personally prefer the IWI Tavor over the FS2000 to be honest.. but that is an asthetics thing for me.. both rifles function as intended.
