Go Nagai Super Robot Shows are nothing to be Guilty about, IMO...

I sat down and watched all 6 current Unicorn episodes in one sitting. Haven't enjoyed myself with a Gundam show this much for a while. Can't believe it's gonna be like half a year still before the next episode comes.

As far the actual story it's really nothing special, but the direction, the music, the animation- everything else just comes together perfectly, IMO. Of course, that might just be me recoiling from how bad Gundam AGE was, and it's a bit unfair to compare an OVA to a TV series.

I dunno, I have that same reaction every time I watch an episode of it, before and after I watched some Gundam series I wasn't enjoying.

Kinda torn about the CE. Not that it isn't fantastic, because it certainly is, but I have enough crap just lying around that I don't know if a Milla statue would get any use at all. To be perfectly honest, the only collector's bonus item that I've gotten any real mileage out of is that mousepad from Agarest War 1, and I use it proudly to this day.

Are you in Europe? If so, you could always get the Day One Edition.

I'm surprised so many sites got their Soul Hackers reviews up day one, including the smaller sites I visit, including this place. I liked today's review, though I can already tell from the music I've youtubed that I disagree about the music not being stand-out. Still, it got me pumped to play SMT:DS:HS once it gets here.

Strike Witches - I don't remember it, and usually it's the type of show that I'd hate, but I think I actually enjoyed it.

Tenjho Tenge - Seriously, the only good thing about this show was the occasional over-the-top actions scenes, but I often felt they alone were worth putting up with the lousy dialogue, confusing, half-assed story, and completely unlikeable cast for 26 episodes.

A Certain Magical Index - I'm cheating here, since I actually think it's a good show, but I've heard enough people call it generic crap that I'm willing to count it. I really like the characters, the action's cool, and I like it's little twists on usual tropes.

Guilty Crown - My latest one. It's not spectacular in any way outside of the visuals and music, yet that alone is enough to keep me going. Plus it reminds me of Code Geass with it's over-the-top shock value.

Dragonauts: The Resonance - I'm cheating again, since I actually thought this was really good when I first watched it. I have no idea why, and it's the only show I'm honestly embarassed to have ever liked.

I guess also Majestic Prince, but I don't think it quite fits...it's not that bad, nor that good...

I also refuse to be embarassed by my newfound love of Pretty Cure.

Gargantia of the Verdurous Planet has a very, very, VERY promising first episode. I loved every minute of it. Great establishment of the story, which was well-paced, had subtle introductions of characters, and some pretty cool action at the beginning. I, of course, love everything about the animation and the art style as well, including the mecha and character designs. And I especially love the twist on the lost-in-space/"Advanced"-man-meets-"primitive"-man type of story. I can't wait to see the next episode, this show seems like it's really going somewhere good!

Just watched the first episode of Majestic Prince. It was okay. The show is kinda generic, and doesn't seem to really even be trying to stand out, but at least it's showing more promise than the last few mecha TV series we've seen, including the last Gundam. Action was good, and it didn't waste a lot of time, so here's to hoping it'll hold up, and maybe even surprise me in the end.

Yay, I won it!

I liked the two they released for the GBA.

Same here. They were decent fun. Nothing spectacular, but well worth the playthroughs I gave them.

I was under the impression that the main series were competant-to-good SRPGs that rarely did anything to advance the genre, but at least managed to follow the established tropes and conventions pretty well. That's just an observation, though, I've never actually played the main series games.

I've been looking for Dual Hearts! =O I'll have to check my PayPal...it's good. :) Guess I'll bid.

@Dice - Thank you for your thoughts on Wolf Children. I can't wait for that to hit DVD in the U.S. My yearly roullette of favorite animals seems to have landed on wolves this year, so I was ecstatic when I heard about this film. It looks cute and fun, and your words seem to confirm that it'll be something I'd enjoy.

Oh yeah, I liked Dead Zone, too. Kinda liked the Tree of Might as well. Didn't really enjoy the ones afterwards, though.

You think Eureka Seven is slow?  I wouldn't even consider it a slow show.

IIRC, nothing important happens for the half the episodes, at least in the first half. So a quarter of the episodes, I guess. That's still pretty bad in my opinion.
