Good thing Mike doesn't come here cuz his head would explode over the following...



http://first-squad.com/

Quote
First Squad is a joint animation project of Japan’s Studio 4°C and Russian authors with Molot Entertainment. Music by Japanese musician DJ Krush. Set during the opening days of World War II on the Eastern Front. Its main cast is represented by a group of Soviet teenagers with extraordinary abilities; the teenagers have been drafted to form a special unit to fight the invading German army. They are opposed by a Schutzstaffel (SS) officer who is attempting to raise from the dead a supernatural army of crusaders from the 12th-century Order of the Sacred Cross and enlist them in the Nazi cause.

I wanna see it, but only cuz I'm a sucker for Studio 4°C.

Yeah, I would watch that animu.

Oh, speaking of animu. I saw Ponyo the other day. Maybe his best looking film yet?

Quote from: ATOMU
PUT ZETA DOWN MATT WHAT ARE YOU DOING

FYI, both Hilary and I realized about three episodes in that we really should brush up on our history, so I'm in the midst of acquiring the entire run of 0079, whereas she recently re-watched Char's Counterattack, which I'll wait till after Zeta... In fact, just gonna try to watch everything in its chronological order from this point on, though I might skip 0083, which we both agree is a bit of a snooze-fest. Apologizes if ye is offended.

BTW, also recently acquired that old PSone 2D Gundam fighter, with the really nice at the time animation, which still holds up. Controls like ass, but hey, it's Gundam, right? Though I'd much rather play that new, Virtual On-esque arcade title that's based on Unicorn. Have you seen vids of that yet Mia? Of course you have, stupid question.

BTW, once the new PS3 firmware comes out, and if it does indeed support video files with subtitles, holy shit, it is on.

Oh, it better be on. Also honestly, for the OVAs I'm just passing along recommendations from the lifers. So idek, I didn't have the patience for them myself. It's different when you have the televised stuff under your belt, but when you're in the middle of it it's like pulling teeth when you could be doing something better than pulling teeth, like skateboarding.

I actually haven't seen footage of that! I know there's a MAJOR gundam crossover title coming out for ps3 that looks fucking awesome, but is there also a Unicorn based game coming? Or is it the same? I am too tired to google for the sake of this post. Also, Gundam games are notoriously shit, though the Dynasty Warriors Gundam ones are apparently good, and Encounters in Space? IDK, I'll get back to you on that.

I'm a bit conflicted with the art design; the main characters look too Gurren Lagann-ish, but otherwise, everything looks neat, especially the vehicles...

EDIT: Not surprising that the premise is fairly wacky...

Quote
The destiny of Tomoe Shiro, a formidable racer with a very promising career, experiments an U-turn when a serious accident puts his life at stake. He recovers miraculously, though, when his heart is replaced with the engine of his own racing car.
However, because of that very reason, race regulations demote him to the category of a mere mechanical part of the vehicle and is deprived from the right to participate as a pilot in regular races. Only in a far away colonial planet, along with a multitude of other charismatic pilots also vetoed from participating in regular competitions, he will be given the opportunity to race for his pride and the money of the prize. And so this exciting rally starts!

Hey Mia, is this any good?

http://azurewind.tumblr.com/post/169423282/will-you-kill-someone-you-love-because-of-love

... Seems kinda generic, much like that driving oriented one from before, but I'm kinda desperate for something new, to offset the heavy dose of 0079 that I'm currently headfirst in (I like to watch stuff in pairs, especially if they can contrast each others).

I don't actually have experience with either of those! I've heard good about Xam'd.

Also if you aren't laughing through 0079 you're doing it wrong Might I interest you in Bakemonogatari, though? I might be biased because I love SHAFT but what I've watched of it I really enjoy.
The pacing is very s l o o o o o w but they keep you on your toes. Honestly, no isolated clip of it can summarize it as a whole, just try out an episode. Also it has maybe 500 OP/EDs, because it's SHAFT, but this one is p. neato: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2YXat9_xEk

OR YOU COULD WATCH KAIBA, one of my favorite anime in the entire world, but I honestly don't know how it'll taste in tandem with 0079. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTEMxvCbem0
