Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

Festa's death in Dougram might just be the weirdest death I've seen in an anime period, and I've seen my share. That was just... what.

NOT EVEN JUSTICE

Personally though I don't think all that high of Dougram though. Then again the same goes for just about every 80s mecha series I've seen - makes me wonder why I bother with so many, heh. Vifam is probably my favorite among the bunch.

You should show the kid some of the stuff that aired on the old Toonami/Adult Swim. Then you should ease him into the better stuff like Gurren Lagaan.

I'll talk about Naruto. I've seen a good chunk of it, probably only a little more than you.

The world itself is really interesting but the plot has really bad pacing issues and relies on deus ex machina far too much.

I find the setting to be interesting and engaging in it's own way. Most of the characters are just obnoxious and certain aspects of it really bother me. The themes are pretty typical of a shonen but there's this weird generational aspect to the plot that kind of simultaneously kills it in some cases and makes it more interesting in others.

Certain aspects of the world are neat though, I like how it's designed. You see stuff like powerlines and other modern technology but it's so subtle. It has this kind of timeless feeling to it, I think Kishimoto did really well there.

I got pretty far into the series but stopped when I realized they're not going to retrieve Sasuke from the "bad guys" anytime soon and the fights were just going to continue to be incredibly drawn out. There are also no cute/moe girls in the show, which is a crime. Haku is a cuter girl than most of the girls.

I'd watch it until you get tired of it, honestly. It's not an explicitly bad series, but it definitely has problems. I think it's better than shit like Attack of Titan (the titan killer squad cloak = the new leaf village headband) or Tokyo Ghoul though. The anime is full of QUALITY, and you should skip the filler if you plan to continue on..

I actually think Itachi is pretty cool. He's one of the edgiest characters in the entire show but some of his wizard powers are like really cool finisher moves from a fighting game. I'm fond of Kakashi, too, I like how he steps up to be a father/big brother figure to the group of fuck-ups he was saddled with. I guess I like the older male characters in Naruto.

My biggest gripe with Naruto, though, is that it stops being about ninjas after a certain point and more about wizards who also just happen to be able to flash step.

People like to rag on the fanbase for wearing Akatsuki cloaks in public and shit but the thing is, that was all like 12 year old kids who don't actually consume much anime, back in 2010. Times have changed.

Not everything you watch needs to fit your narrow worldview and not every character needs to be a pure maiden. I watch almost exclusively cgdgt but when I want to watch something from a different genre I want something different. If you are incapable of enjoying any piece of fiction the characters are sexually active you are pretty limited in what you can watch.

>Not everything you watch needs to fit your narrow worldview
How is my world view narrow for not caring for a series depicting and glorifying degenerate attitudes? Unlike you (per your own admission) I don't confine myself to a single genre most of the time.
>not every character needs to be a pure maiden
There is a wide breach between pure maiden and morally bankrupt slut.
>If you are incapable of enjoying any piece of fiction the characters are sexually active you are pretty limited in what you can watch
I'm confused by your unnecessarily defensive approach. You respond as if I had attacked your own world views on a personal level instead of an anime; if so, it's not my fault if you're drawn towards being wretched or similar. Regardless, sex in anime (or series, movies, games, etc.) must have purpose so it doesn't become gratuitous; otherwise it's just for show. And if it's just for show, then it has an intended purpose, which is drawing certain target, of which I deem myself not to belong in. Love stories and drama can very well function without being crass and explicit, as hundreds of examples have shown.

Finally, what the hell have you been watching all along that you'd deem anime that shows or mentions sexually active characters is the overwhelming majority?

>You respond as if I had attacked your own world views on a personal level instead of an anime; if so, it's not my fault if you're drawn towards being wretched or similar.
I'm watching something far outside my worldview and am enjoying it more than expecting. I wasn't trying to be hostile or defensive.

Started watching Ranma½. This is the third longest series I have ever attempted to watch after Urusai Yatsura and Dragon Ball/DBZ as it has over 160 episodes plus OVAs and movies. Neither of which I watched to completion. If the quality doesn't drop substantially I will finish this one

Just saw Fate Kaleid Liner. Didn't watch it as it aired because I didn't feel like watching what I assumed at the time might be a somewhat dark and violent anime. Gotta say it wasn't half bad. First ep was a bit off putting, but part of that I think is seeing familiar characters but with the very different art style compared to the style generally used with other fate anime. That said, it seemed like a decent blend of Nanoha and Sakura. The Relationship between Illya and Miyu felt a bit forced and had me wondering at times why they're even friends, but that's just how these things roll so whatever. Anyways, it wasn't bad. Could have used a lot more Luvia though..

I watched Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo, recently. It was a fuck ton better than I expected. I was instantly hooked and loved it. I can't remember the last time I saw an anime that was this legitimately entertaining and funny. I suppose you could say that's due in part to a lot of japanese humor getting lost in translation, but the style of humor used in this was such that could overcome cultural divides. My only real complaint about it is that it feels like it may have had some possible time constraints during production near the end and had to cut content while making it shorter than a typical anime. I say this because they do a really sloppy of introducing some characters around 3/4ths of the way in. Two characters get introduced by way of sloppy exposition dumps, which isn't that bad for the two best friend characters, but it does feel weird since they never really show up again after that. More importantly though the character wiz has a reoccurring roll to play in both seasons but her intro is done in the way of a flash back/exposition dump too in what seems like something that could have been it's own ep and had elements to it which had a decent roll to play in the story. It was jarring to say the least how they were handled. Then there's Yuuyuu who's in season 1's op but never shows up. Instead they appear in an ova as already being familiar with the group. Then they get properly introduced in season two only to make one wonder where that ova takes place in.
Anyways, it's a fun anime with great line up of flawed yet likable characters, with a refreshing take on a all too played out setting and premises. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

I did notice it being talked about here, but yeah I don't really have much of an excuse.
I guess if anything old me might have passed it up due to it looking like either a generic harem anime or yet another guy stuck in yet another rpg world. This without realizing it was a parody of those things of course. I couldn't really say though.

This week I was supposed to be watching gits stand alone complex and azumanga daioh, but I got distracted and ended up rewatching the first two seasons of yuru yuri. I still really love it but I'm gonna get back on schedule now. Azumanga I'm half way through s1 and I really like it, it's super comfy. I'm only to episodes into SAC but I'm liking it so far. Oh yeah I also watched girls und panzer, that was surprisingly good, I went in expecting it to be trash for some reason but I actually really enjoyed it, not just because the girls are cute I think the story is pretty well done and the tank battles are enjoyable.

I'm watching Konjiki no Gash Bell. Not so far in at the moment, so I'll make a later post when I'm done. There is a lot of humor that seems like it'd be censored if localized anywhere else. Kinda makes me wonder who thought showing things like pic related to kids was a good idea, but I dunno. I like how in this show, they seem to make at least some of the people they fight a bit more interesting and less two dimensional than just "generic evil dude" over and over again. Like with the ep with the kind dude who was going to destroy the elementary school, after Koruru's ep. I've only gotten so far as the teens, so I hope not to be spoiled, but I expect that the "kind ruler" theme will continue. Kindness and righteousness seems to be pretty standard as far as these shows are concerned, but with it being delivered by beating the shit out of each opponent so they even disappear/die/whatever happens. While even if the books are burned in this show, they only return to the demon world as far as they've told. With 150 eps, though, I expect multiple arcs too. I remember one enemy (around ep 8?) saying that it seems Gash has "Only fought 10 enemies", and IIRC Sherry explained in the beginning that there were 100 total, so assuming each up to that point fought more than 10, there wouldn't be so many left. Not enough to fill up a 150 ep show at least. So that's that, I'll be watching for months to come.

I loved that anime and agree, it's very melon!
I've seen both the original and the 4kids version and as you guessed a ton of stuff was edited. As you said it's a pretty well rounded anime that does both light hearted themes and some really depressing stuff too. There were more than a characters I hated to see go along the way, but I suppose that's better than everyone having wide spread plot armor. It's just a shame the anime didn't get a proper ending as long as it was, and even then goes off in it's own direction near it's own end. Requires reading the manga to see how the story ends. They even changed out Gash's VA near the end too which try as they might to hide it was still very noticeable.

I finished watching Azumanga Daioh for the first time yesterday. I had avoided it for years thinking it was generic but I was so wrong. It's such a lovely anime: The stories and bits are cute and funny, the voice acting is great, it's well written and super funny, and while I'm not really much of a watcher of slice-of-life nor cute-girls-doing-cute-thing anime, I find it the best in the genre I've seen to date. Maybe I'm biased because I like cats and the Sakaki stories warm my heart, but still. It's been a while since I got ending blues, but this time I mostly regret it not watching years ago.

I finished watching Binchou-tan a couple of days ago. This anime is beautiful, and so cute and lovely that it hurts, it's truly bittersweet. It's done so well that is heartwarming to the point I ended up tearing up dozens of times for the most innocuous and innocent things. This is now one of my favourites and I believe this should be a must-watch for anyone who is able to watch anime when alone and quiet, with nothing to distract you nor interrupt you from enjoying it to its fullest.

Bichou-tan is so pure, dedicated and hardworking, despite how little she has and how simple her live is, that it made me feel bad about being a NEET. Her ability to entertain herself and find joy in all the little things despite her hardships reminded me of how lucky I am to have the life I do, despite any and all the misery I have experienced. It made me realize how easily I take the positive things for granted and how little effort I've put in pushing myself to reach higher or further. I'm sure this feeling will fade soon, but it's still nice to watch something that will make you realize you have all you need to be happy, even if you have practically nothing.

I'm watching Aria the Animation, and I just finished episode 11. The whole series has been good so far, but episode 11 really struck me. The part that really hit me was at the end where Akari tearfully says to Aika and Alice that she'll see them again. Having never been close to anyone, pure displays of friendship like this tend to strike a chord with me. I also liked the way the episode tackled the idea of the passage of time. I'm scared of change and eventually not being able to have fun with the things I like anymore. The episode helped ease that fear.

I finished watching a few days ago the 2008-2010 Cobra sequels (Psycho-Gun > Time Drive > The Animation). They were quite alright, I liked it a lot and I'm sure anyone who enjoyed old Cobra or even Lupin in general will love it too. After Psycho-Gun, the old V.A. was replaced, but I didn't find it as bothersome as I thought I would. After a while I even forgot about the change. For those that never watched Cobra and want to give this is a shot, I recommend you start with Space Cobra, but if you don't want to, then reminder that this was made for Cobra fans, which means the style of writing and overall direction is meant to emulate the old-school cheesy-but-serious action anime.

After the previous, I watched Cyborg 009 VS Devilman, which really felt more like 009 feat. Devilman, since it's much more centred in the cyborg plot line. It consists of 3 OVAs, about the team being notify of demons reappearing in the world, while also the good ol' enemies creating their own cyborgs to challenged the original team (001-009). Antics ensue, 009 meets and fights Devilman, each thinking their opponent belongs to the other faction, eventually team up and that's pretty much it.

I'd say C009 fans get much more out of it than the counterpart, so watch only if you were already acquainted with both anime (instead of just the latter).

I recently watched the movies. The plot was at times too blunt and disjointed, but overall a classic worthy of its legendary fame.
