Mostly passed it off as a simple comedy with no strong interlinking plot - I'm not a fan of those kinds of shows. Any chance that's an incorrect assessment? It's hard to tell by looking at the ANN and Wikipedia pages.

Nope, your assessment is spot-on.  There is very little plot in that show.  The comedy can be pretty good, though.

I see. Oh well. Guess that just means there's one less show I gotta see. I mean, I like comedy. but I don't like it when it's the focus of the show, and I prefer there to be a story so there's something for me to get invested in and drive me forward.

That said, does Irresponsible Captain Tylor count as obscure? Not sure on that one. I do know it's one of the best anime comedies I've seen, with enough story to keep me going, and a lot of humor I actually found funny (though still some cringe-worthy idiocy to keep it from being perfect). 'Course, I also liked the characters, especially Tylor. I couldn't tell if that guy was a complete idiot or a total genius. Loved it.

Another one I remembered:

Gaiking: Legend of Daiku Maryu - I don't know more than, like 2 people who have seen this, one of them might be here (Aeolus?). I thought it was a really good Super Robot show w/ some mecha elements. It doesn't do a whole lot different, but it does just enough to keep things interesting. The most interesting aspect being that most of it takes place in a fantasy world/other universe, which they actually spend quite a bit of time expanding upon. Not a whole lot, mind you, but enough to keep things interesting. I also liked the characters (in fact, outside of the big bad, I can't think of any characters I didn't particularly like) and thought the story was interesting enough. At the very least it was more focused than your usual super robot anime. Overall it was a highly enjoyable show, and I certainly would recommend it to fans of the genre.

Seto no Hanayome is one of my favorite comedies, but be warned there is quite a bit of fanservice if you're not into that stuff.

Oh, My Bride is a Mermaid? For a second there I thought it was a show that I had never heard of (not that I've seen a whole lot of Anime, it's just that I spent way too much time researching anime one year, so I've heard of a lot). I'm not sure I know anyone else who has seen that, actually, and I'll admit I've been to places where a lot of people have obscure tastes, so that's really something. I know I haven't seen it, though I've noticed it on Funimation and Hulu a couple of times. Mostly passed it off as a simple comedy with no strong interlinking plot - I'm not a fan of those kinds of shows. Any chance that's an incorrect assessment? It's hard to tell by looking at the ANN and Wikipedia pages.

Pardon the triple post but anybody who's played the game on the PSX should appreciate this update. A Dragon Shard Radar should make scouring the land less necessary to progress (although its still worth it just for all the potential loot to be found even if most of it is just pennies and dung).

Oh G-d yes. I am now infinitely more intriqued by this game.

Why is the issue more about the fact he has a penis rather than the fact he looks about 8 years old. o.o

Because he looks like an 8 year old girl? I dunno, kinda wondered that myself.

Because one guy did it and got semi-popular for it, so now everyone's trying to copy him to capitalize on his semi-success.

I mean yeah, it was funny once, at least. The rest, not so much.

Oh. I thought for a moment that there was more to it than that. What's the original video anyway?

NSFW. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the one you've seen. Heck, this may not actually be the original (probably was deleted years ago), it's just the one that was linked to me. At the very least it's the one that got this thing started since it's been re-upped a whole bunch of time.

Why the fuck there are videos in YouTube of people watching Boku no Pico?

Now and Then, Here and There? I know at least five people who have seen that, and they all said it was really good. I saw some of it and wasn't too thrilled by it, but then again, I may not have been in the right mood for it. It doesn't help that it wasn't anything like what I had expected, either.

It's the only Non-RPG I'm looking forward to next year. Honestly, that's more of an honor than it sounds.

The points were horribly translated near the bottom, at least.

Fez - So this game is pretty fun. I'm sure this surprises no one, but it surprised me at least. I was expecting it to be pretty boring, instead I'm having a blast. I just don't get what was supposed to be super unique/deep/artsy about this game, though. Not yet at least.
1151  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Best Anime No One Has Seen on: December 25, 2012, 09:05:29 PM
I actually heard [C] was pretty good...just really heavy on the implied shounen-ai. But yeah, I don't think it quite counts since quite a few people watched it, and to be honest, any anime released in the last 3 or 4 years is gonna be hard to call obscure since there's now giant pictures of every show released per season floating around the internet for everyone to see...

Fang of The Sun Dougram - Even among old-school Mecha fans, it's obscure. Yet this is easily one of the most complex and interesting realistic mecha stories I've seen, right up there with Gundam. Too bad its animation quality is so bad, even for a show of its age.

Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still - Best Super Robot show I've seen (well, after GaoGaiGar and Gurren Lagann), but every seems to pass it off due to its generic name and Old-old-school character designs.

Kaiba -  The most obscure show I know, It's actually pretty hard to find fansubs of. It's best and most deep surreal sci-fi/fantasy I've ever seen. I actually had fun trying to figure it all out, and it was enjoyable enough as is, though it was also rather needlessly disturbing at times.

Also, I quite liked LoGH, but because of its currently questionable obscurity status (it was one of the first shows I had heard of when I got into anime, and was one of the first shows I torrented), so I won't put it down just yet.

Special Mentions:

Iria The Animation - It's freakin' gorgeous, and I found it to be a very fun show overall, though I can't say the plot was that memorable.

Genmu Seki Leada - Okay, most people in Japan know this for being the first OVA, but I doubt many americans have actually seen it. I have. It's a fun watch, though I can't remember much about the story since I had to watch half of it in Japanese, but it didn't lose me, so I guess it was unnecessary.

Idol Project - It's one of the few comedy anime that made me laugh, so it deserves a mention just for that.

I had a lot of trouble getting into Jet Set Radio, too. The controls are frustrating and...I guess I don't really know what I'm doing or even what I'm supposed to do?
1154  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Etrian Odyssey IV announced for 3DS on: December 21, 2012, 11:58:59 AM
Pre-ordered.  Also, this will give me an excuse to get around to Etrian Odyssey III some time soon.

If you manage to finish it on time, think you could give me a total time estimate? I'm on the first floor of the second stratum, and it felt like it took 20 hours just to get through the first Stratum (granted 5+ hours were just sailing), and it doesn't seem like it'll get any quicker.

I liked Legend of Black Heaven, though it's not to everyone's tastes. Hope you enjoy it, though, Bytor.
