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.

Some dude's cool One Piece tattoo:

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.

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.

At our own Taelus' recommendation, I started watching Eureka Seven.  Only a couple of episodes in, but it's pretty good so far!  Previous to that, I watched the first season of Yu Yu Hakusho, because I remembered seeing some episodes back in the day and enjoying them.  It didn't hold my interest, so I moved on.

Eureka Seven's definitely good if you can handle a really slow show. If you like it now, you'll probably love it by the second half, where it supposedly picks up the pace. I wouldn't know, though, I could never make it that far. It's slow beyond my limits. Plus Renten anoys the heck out of me, and I'm used to annoying Mecha protagonists. He did get better as he went on, at least.

Dragon Warrior I. Mopped up Gavin's grave and now I have to find some other place to explore. Went further down south, but apparently the monsters there are really kicking my ass.

Have you gone east yet? My biggest mistake with Dragon Warrior the first time I played it was focusing on the west side when I should've gone east.

I'm actually looking forward to it, but I'm waiting for it to come over here because OH MY GOD, GOKU'S JAPANESE VOICE IS TERRIBAD!!!

Oh man, I forgot about Blue Planet SOS. I saw the first episode and loved it, but never got back to it. And yeah, I've never seen anyone talk about it, I just found it randomly.
1350  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What's your criteria when choosing a starter Pokemon? on: March 18, 2013, 01:42:51 PM

why are you acting like pokemon need to be anthropomorphised to be lusted after

Oh what a coincidence, I just found that out the hard way. Please excuse any typos, as I seem to have GONE BLIND.

OT: I'm actually hoping that the water starter is Water/Electric, for no other reason than because I've seen a lot of fanart that makes his evolutions look like a viking, and I want to call him "Thor."
