And those DS games. I got DQ5 for $30 new, and DQ4 for $20.

Not to sound like a dick or anything, but I'm just gonna go with everyone else I've talked to and assume FMA's actually good.

XSEED finally put up a press release. Which means pre-orders are now up. I just pre-ordered my copy.

Sorry, but when it comes to anime, I finish what I start (eventually).

Didn't they remake Intellegent Qube? Or am I thinking of something else?

I honestly disagree with pretty much everything you said except for the lack of character development of the main character part.

Heh, that's cool, bit interested in hearing your thoughts behind it that's all. I'm a pretty big Gundam nerd.

Honestly, just take the exact opposite of pretty much everything you had said, and you'd have my thoughts on the matter, minus the two noted exceptions (Main character and SEED's mecha).

Anyways, I ended up going with Eureka Seven, but then my internet went out, so I watched FullMatal Alchemist and Gundam X until the cable guy came and got us a new modem. Now that we have internet, I feel like watching Escaflowne.

Impressions:

Eureka Seven is slooooow. But good. The world is very unique and the characters are great - they're all quirky and never quite cliche. It's very character focused for a Mecha anime, which in this case works.

FullMetal Alchemist is really good so far. It's very episodic so far, and each little story hits just the right notes, so to speak. It's got just the right mix of comedy and sorrow, action and intrigue - no one aspect overpowers the other. The characters and voice acting are also great, but that goes without saying.

Gundam X has really hit the spot, especially with the Fort Seven arc. It seems to have more of a Love/adventure story feel to it, and it really works for me. I especially love the post-apocalyptic setting, it really makes for an interesting world. The only think I don't like are the mech designs. They aren't bad, but they come off as weird versions of mobile suits from other series. They're still not as bad as the bug 'suits from Victory Gundam or those monstrocities in Turn A Gundam, and I'm getting used to them, but I can't say I like them.

I'll edit in my impressions of Escaflowne later.

@Hathen

I honestly disagree with pretty much everything you said except for the lack of character development of the main character part.

Anyways, yesterday I finished off This Ugly Yet Beautiful World. To put it quite simply I enjoyed practically every minute of it. The story wasn't stupendous, but I loved the characters, especially Hikari - she finds joy in so many little things about the world that we take for granted. The art and music was great as well, particularly the main theme, "Metamorphose." And the ending, without spoiling too much, was bittersweet - my second favorite type of ending after tragic endings.

And slightly off-topic, but I had a dream last night where I talked to a girl for a long time about this show. She got really interested when I told her it was made by Gainax, makers of Evangelion. Then I managed to convince her to come over to my house to watch Gunbuster! Now there's a fantasy I wish would come true! Screw all my usually cartoony/Gamey dreams!

It's a western exclusive. Same difference.
1149  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier replaces the lolis with dudes on: June 20, 2011, 04:27:05 PM
I'm happy with this. Just one question though: What's an otome?

A love adventure where a female protagonist must woo one of many male love interests.

Rock on! Here's hoping for a U.S. release!

Yeah, business as usual. And I thought this was well known years ago. I coulda sworn there were news articles way back when talking about how Microsoft paid for the localization.
1152  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Hey Guys! We got one! (Solatorobo Thread) on: June 20, 2011, 01:14:20 PM
Finally, a Solatorobo thread. This is a game that appeals to me on so many levels, there's no way I could pass it up. I'm glad it's finally coming to North America, I was fully ready to import it, but I'm glad I don't have to. Actually, depending on the cover art, I may get the European version as well.
1153  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Sweden: "Men Who Like Adult Manga Are Sick Pedophiles" on: June 19, 2011, 01:19:28 PM
So according to this radio show and so called experts any man who gets off to hentai (regardless of whether it's lolicon or not) is a dangerous sex criminal...

Considering the content of most hentai, I can't blame him. Saying they're all Pedophiles is obviously ignorant, but if it's not Lolicon, I've yet to see a hentai Manga that didn't contain some other sick fetish, and I've looked pretty hard. (still, feel free to prove me wrong)
1154  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: MGS, SH and ZOE HD collections announced on: June 18, 2011, 07:23:44 PM
With all this HD thing I remembered Zone of the Enders: The Fist of Mars, you know, the GBA game that almost nobody cared to play because "lol handhelds". I wonder if it could be a wise choice to remake that game for the 3DS or Vita while we wait for Zone of the Enders 3.

A new Z.o.E. game for 3DS or Vita could be pretty nice too I guess. :T

I thought I was the only one who still cared about that game. I'd love to see a remake someday, or at least a sequel in the same vein. Doubt it'll happen, but I can dream.

I just started This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, based on a recommendation from a user here, and from an AMV I favorited on Youtube. I'm 6 episodes in. So far, it seems like it has a lot of potential. I like the characters a lot, the love story aspect isn't as sappy as I expected, and the action was cool, if a bit sparse. The story seems pretty mysterious right now, it could turn out to be very interesting. Really, I can't wait to watch more of it. I might marathon it today until I finish it.
