Someone told me to watch something called My-Hime since I said I liked Madoka Magica.


Should I really watch this, because I watched this first episode and a lot of it was fan service.

I put it before the RPGfan Anime Council.

I thought My-Hime was OK.  Some interesting ideas, certainly not just a fanservice show.  Still, I wouldn't even put it in the same league as Madoka...

In answer to Symphogear:

Correct for season 1.
Woefully incorrect for season 2.

Someone told me to watch something called My-Hime

Personnally, I'd recommend My Otome any day over My Hime.
The difference is that My Hime is boohoohoooo all the time while My Otome has some actual humour.
Both are about as tragic in the end.
Oh yeah, Arika is also a much better lead than My Hime's useless dude.

Personally I thought My-Otome was rubbish, but to each his own...

Hmm.

Well, are there many anime's as clever and well told as Madoka Magica? I'm not interested in long-running or mecha anime though.

The only thing I can think of is Katanagatari.

Yay, One Piece is coming to Crunchyroll! Now I no longer have to deal with Hulu for new episodes! <3

Also...how long has Crunchyroll had Manga? :O If they keep adding Fairy Tail, I might go read some of that. They got a lot of Space Brothers, too...

Just started.

I see, I haven't been on there over a month, so I wasn't sure. Nice, hope it pans out better than the webcomic thing did.

Is the manga reader any good?  I can't get a free trial since I'm already a premium member...(does that make sense to anyone?)

A lot of these online manga readers are pretty crappy...I tried using Jmanga back in the day to support the industry and all that and look how that turned out...

It's okay. Still has some issues to work out. It has one of those Magnifiers that always goes a set resolution, which sucks for me, since with my funky screen resolution, the full screen doesn't quite go full screen, instead having a White border along the bottom and sides. But if I magnify it, it cuts stuff off. Not that it matters, it goes back to the default every time your turn the page.

It also has this bar on the bottom that has your settings, Magnifyer option, Chapter select, and an orange bar that fills as you go through the chapter and lets you easily select which page you'd like to go to. On the chapter I tried, it never quite fills all the way up, even when I'm on the last page, and trying to click on the last page was difficult since I had to find just the right spot. I also noticed a slight loading time when trying to go from the beginning to the end, and when trying to load up the next chapter.

Overall, it's pretty fast, clean, and mostly functional. I've certainly used worse. I think I might continue using it, at least for Space Brothers and Fairy Tail. Speaking of which:
Code:
Did they just kill off Grey while he was distracted by Julia's idiocy? I mean, I can't imagine that they'd kill one of their best characters in such an embarassing way, but he did kinda get turned into swiss cheese...so if he lives, it's bullcrap. Kinda stuck in a bind there, Mr. writer...

Code:
Grey's watch says it's Organ-less-O-Clock.

They'll probably do what Gundam AGE did have the next episode lead off with the character in question showing up only almost being impaled despite the new scene not really looking all that similar to the previous one.

*After Reading Chapter* Even Better:
Code:
A character sacraficed herself to turn back time...and only managed to turn it back one minute. But everyone gets to keep their memories, so Grey and 3 other people managed to save themselves from death...because they all died within the same minute apparently. (These must be some very coordinated Dragons...or maybe everyone's idiocy was just in sync =P)

Did the character that activated the Omega 13 also get a mulligan?

Yes. I mean, they could've retconned the entire arc when they destroyed the [s]tardis[/s] time door, thus saving everyone, but instead it just forces everyone back to their own time, while the heroes celebrate, and they make up some crap about her failing the spell, thus surviving instead of being sacrificed. Oh, but now she's an old lady, I guess that's close enough.
