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?

Kaiji, going to finish it before the second season starts. Such an intense show and Kaiji is an amazing character.
>> No. 2448 [Edit]
I'm technically watching Hokuto no Ken and Galaxy Express 999, though not at an alarming rate.
>> No. 2449 [Edit]
What a coincidence, I'm watching HSx365 too.

I'm on a quest to watch every Shaft show there is right now.
>> No. 2450 [Edit]
I plan to rewatch Hidamari at least 9 more times in my life.

Are we all on a Hidamari Sketch spree? I just finished watching all 3 seasons.

I'm a big SHAFT fan, trying to watch Maria†Holic right now since there's a sequal next season. I'm on episode 3.

I plan to watch Kaiji at least 4 more times in my life, too.
>> No. 2455 [Edit]
I pretty much only watch old shows. I don't have time to watch things as they come out, so I'm always WAY behind. Hell, I've had After Story on hold for almost two years.

Hell yeah. The only Rumiko Takahashi series that I really enjoy.

The only "old" series I've been watching is Evangelion (again)...

Oh, and High School of the Dead, but that was from summer last year. I thought that they handled it surprisingly well (whoever 'they' are). I had the prejudice it would be completely diverging from the manga storyline, and there would be loads of QUALITY. Glad I was wrong. Even the soundtrack is awesome - Although I think that's why I'm so hyped about it in the first place.

I've been wanting to watch Infinite Ryvius for a while, but, alas, can't find a working torrent. I might actually have to buy the box-set somewhere.
>> No. 2481 [Edit]
Well, what do you know? I'm watching Hidamari Sketch Hoshimitsu. Just 3 episodes left so I'm going at a VERY slow pace to make last longer.

I'm also watching Sora no Otoshimono, the Gundam Trylogy, and downloading Fate/Stay Night to watch it along the next few weeks.

I'm having a tendency to drop shows this season to make time to watch old ones. Apart from Madoka and Fractale no show really made me expect the next episode.
>> No. 2482 [Edit]

did you know that the guy who writes it was killed in the tsunami before you started watching it?

Finished Maria†Holic now, it had some pretty funny parts. Not the best show i've ever watched, but it wasn't terrible either.

To the folks in this thread that have seen Kaiji, would you recommend it to someone with no experience or real interest in gambling or gambling anime?
>> No. 2485 [Edit]
>>2483
Yes. I'd never seen a gambling anime before Kaiji and I loved it. Kaiji isn't so much about gambling as it is about the power of the human spirit anyway.
>> No. 2488 [Edit]
As a fan of classical music I'm making an effort to watch all of Nodame Cantabile. There are 3 seasons (I think?) and a bunch of OVAs.
>> No. 2490 [Edit]

No, I didn't know that. That sucks if it's true. I heard that Ritz Kobayashi hasn't reported in yet either. Now is a pretty bad time for mangaka in Japan.

It's not true as far as I know. What was true the last time I checked was that there hadn't been any reports on his whereabouts since the quake, but there are no indications of his death

I watched Ivu no Jikan a couple of months ago and quite enjoyed it and also enjoyed Rec, another short series.
Therefore this thread is now also about short series (less than 10 episodes or less than 4 hours total running time) that are good.
>> No. 2519 [Edit]
I'm finishing Now and Then, Here and There and just started on Record of Lodoss War. I'm enjoying Record of Lodoss War, and while I can't say Now and Then, Here and There is "entertaining" I can certainly say that I'm interested in it. I almost exclusively watch older shows, and as of now I am attempting to watch all "classics" of old /a/.

As cliched as it as, I really enjoy romantic comedies. Especially when you actually care about the main couple. Feena is such a lovely girl too. It was short and sweet.

UFO no Natsu is pretty similar to Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora if you've seen that, but I actually like it better. Bokura ga Ita was cute, but made me rage at times too. Been meaning to watch Le Chevalier D'Eon myself.

Right now, I'm watching Kaiji and Evangelion. Just finished the original series of Eva, and gonna be starting the movies soon. Afterwards, I have Fate/Stay Night and Planetes to watch.

Also, I just had to pause and take this screencap on the last episode.

Slowly getting through Baccano and El Cazador de Bruja. I'm not really into the whole pre-50s and mafia/mobster aesthetics so Baccano isn't really gripping me. . .and while Cazador is more intriguing, it has less action and fewer giant mutated wasps than I expected. I'll still be sticking with both of them for now though.

no one watches the 2002 version.

The 2006 version was a real visual treat that still holds up well today. The VN on the other hand came out in what 99? So it is old but still excellent.

The latest thing I played catchup on was the Slayers. Yeah, 90's stuff totally qualifies as old now ;_; Why it took me so long to see it is beyond me. The Slayers Next was just great.

god fucking dammit kyoani.
kanon was a great series, i really enjoyed it. one night i sat down to watch one ep before bed and ended up marathoning five cause it was just that sugoi, but then i see kyoani doing cheap repetitive shit like this - makes me feel like i was raped and enjoyed it. oh and i loved endless eight too, watched every episode with relish and then i watched them all again. its like being the victim in an abusive relationship.

Kurozuka, which is incredibly awesome for something I've never heard anyone talk about.

Blassreiter, which I'm not sure what to think of. Based on the first few episodes it looks like Nitro+ trying to do a superhero story and Gonzo throwing in a ton of bad CG.
>> No. 3273 [Edit]
Kiminozo/Rumbling Hearts. Very melodramatic and soap opera-y in a mostly good way, and it takes place mostly after high school which is a nice change of pace. The whole "you can't tell her she was in a coma for three years" thing seemed kinda contrived but it worked out alright.

Watched Fractale. I liked the ending but overall the show was kinda boring, and the "derp your ecchi Clain" jokes were repetitive and unfunny.

Hidamari Sketch x ☆☆☆ (season 3) now. Just like previous seasons, it seems to take a dip in quality midway through when they feature Miyako less, but the new characters are a nice addition. But it makes me sad that I will never have a rainbow-colored morning shower. ;_;

I watched Asura Cryin 2. The first season was so terrible that I didn't watch the second when it aired, but seeing mentions of it being much better than the first agitated my completionism and got me to watch it. Luckily they were right, season two is way better. Maybe even good enough to make the time wasted on season one worth it.

Finally got around to watching Galaxy angel, bout darn time to, had first season on dvd for more then a year now.
First epiode kind of threw me off, mostly the voice acting that bugged me, becuase they went really what I expected the characters to sound like, but once I got used to it I found myself really loving this show, all the characters are each just grate, and the episodes aren't dragged out being 15 minutes, good for a quick pick me up I think.
and can't forget that op.. I mean literally, it got stuck in my head..

I've never really been into the cutesy and moe stuff so I haven't actually watched any. A friend of mine really enjoys them and I decided to check out Lucky Star and K-On out because of that. I'm still torrenting them but I'm finally going to watch them.

I just can't understand how you feel like this. My tolerance for plot-filled serious series is pretty low; I can (and do) digest one at a time, but I can watch multiple SoLs. I suppose the confusion/bemusement is mutual though.
>> No. 4144 [Edit]
>>4143
It is. I'm not counting actual comedies in that quota, though, just stuff like K-On! or A-channel, or Lucky Star, from what I could tell. Cute girls doing cute things is great, but I also like to have character and plot development or humor, otherwise I get bored. And if those can be combined all the better.

Just finished Eve no Jikan. It was fantastic, but ending left me kind of unsatisfied. We didn't learn what Takisaka Incident was, and I really would have liked to see how the relationship between Masaki and his father ended up. Wiki article says there's a possibility for a second season. Well, I can hope. And, even though I'll watch it, can anyone confirm if the movie adds much without spoiling anything? Just a simple yes/no would be enough.
