    OreImo is an awesome show, so I can only recommend it for Akia too

    Oreimo is awesome, but Hataraku Maou-sama! has been my favorite of the (still new) season so far.

    I'm sure it will, it's a really fun series. I'm also really enjoying Gargantia, while HenNeko is growing on me. Good so far, but potentially great, once the girls get more involved.

    i loved that scene, kirino and kuroneko arguing over whos anime was better after their IRL meeting, their reaction was classic, and the scene fits the new forum the
    "theater lounge" perfectly

    Re: Theater Lounge Hangout

    is there a favorite anime soundtrack or favorite anime exit/intro thread?

    or are you guys going to be doing a poll for this as one of the anime polls?

    I follow Nisekoi, Hamatora, Nobunaga The Fool, BuddyCom and ZX_Anime this season for twitter accounts. I think Nisekoi has been their the longest or maybe Chuunibyo since its season one may have preceded the Nisekoi anime account.

    Chuunibuou, Nisekoi, Saki, and Hoozuki were established franchises before the winter season started. New or old, their twitter account includes carry over fans from the original manga, and previous seasons.

    Re: Theater Lounge Hangout

    I've noticed that a lot of anime films, like Western animated movies, tend to feature film actors/actresses as leads. Practically every film that won the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year have the leading characters voiced by someone who primarily work with live action films.

    For example, Wolf Children featured Aoi Miyazaki, From Up On Poppy Hill featured Okada Junichi [V6], Tekkonkinkreet featured Kazunari Ninomiya [Arashi] & Yu Aoi and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time featured Riisa Naka.

    Is this a mere coincidence or is there a reason why prolific seiyuus are not cast into these films?

    Re: General Anime and Drama Discussion Hangout

    I have to put every series on my watch list on hiatus until mid-August until I finish my volunteering. There's not enough time to watch during those days, which makes me sad.

    On the other hand, I seem to prefer marathoning a series more than waiting for a new episode every week.

    10 Reasons to look forward for the anime adaption of NINJA SLAYER

    Reading NJSLYR (short for Ninja Slayer, as called by fans) was equally a breath of fresh air as it was a blast from the past.

    Even if the anime version hasn't been released yet, there are enough reasons to look forward to it:

    10 Reasons to look forward to NJSLYR's anime adaption:

    1) Cyberpunk setting mixed with Futaro Yamada's ninja pulp aesthetics (Basilisk, Ninja Scroll).

    2) A nostalgia trip for fans of old school anime's sensibilities...

    3) ...while at the same time a parody to that exact same sensibilities. This joint is genuinly funny (unlike the usual anime/manga's otaku humor). Something on the level of Samurai Cop - Miami Connection humorous flair. While those titles where humorous by accident, NJSLYR humor is just as great even if it was deliberate.

    4) The writing style is so wacked out, in a postive way. I don't know if it's because the series is originally conceived on twitter format. But everything is so literal.

    Expect the ridiculisation of Japanese habits for shouting attacks, lyrics for supermarket theme songs, wacky ass double punn names as NUT CRACKER or EXPLOSIONER and more (bonus points for all the pop culture references).

    5) NJSLYR i the ultimate DEUS EX MACHINA of DEATH. As he often pops up randomly to kick ninja butt. He even popped randomly out of a fridge for a ninja showdown in one part of the novels!

    6) ONE-LINER GALORE! 'WASSHOII!' 'NJSLYR keeps on trucking' and many more. 'Ninja shall perish!' is the new 'You are allready dead' (Hokuto no Ken).

    7) Totally rad ninja enemies for NJSLYR to fight (look for the Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat references). Yes it's totally monster of the week... but who cares, it's all about in jokes and cool Futaro Yamada style ninja (+ weapons and powers) battles anyway.

    Here's a small grasp from NJSLYR's rogue gallery, few of my favorites:

    Sonic Boom


    Black Haze (Fight with explosding cigars) & Fatal (fatal femme, can transforming into a hulking grotesque beast).

    Fatal: http://i.imgur.com/qNo0bc8.jpg
    Fatal's beast transformation: http://i.imgur.com/d6fXnrW.jpg

    Purple Tako (squid tentacle mouth-ninja)


    Tentacle face:

    Cockatrice (snake arm)


    Zoom of his freaky ass mutant face: http://i.imgur.com/owEobdb.jpg

    Deadly Duo, Gauntlet (Shuriken Sniper) & Centipede (body extender)



    Gauntlet design:

    Centipede design:

    Basilisk (Bike Ninja #1))

    http://i.imgur.com/nCPGYbw.jpg

    Myrmidon (Bike Ninja #2)

    http://i.imgur.com/EjZh2Ko.jpg

    Chrome Dolphin ([Hover]Bike Ninja #3)

    http://i.imgur.com/Wlo2XpR.jpg

    Sooooo expect many motorbike ninja battles.

    Nut Cracker (Jaws got competition)


    etc. etc.

    8) The anime adaption is done by 'Studio Trigger'. Good sign, decent folk.

    9) "Fight fire with fire? Make up your mind to fight fire with speed, and even deadlier speed you shall create. If the enemy don't fall after hundred shuriken, throw a thousand." - NJSLYR wisdom better then your average fortune cookie.

    10) NJSLYR's punch turns full encased ninja helmets into puke buckets (at least on one occassion)
