I finished Part 5 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Definitely my least favorite so far. It's not bad, just not as good as the other parts. The stand fights were really interesting, though.

Now reading Part 6, featuring the first and only female JoJo thus far.

I restarted JJBA myself, and am up to Part 3. For some reason I find it easier to interperet panels here, as if it's cleaner than 1 and 2. (But don't get me wrong, Joseph is my favorite JoJo so far.)

So this season I started watching current anime again. I watched Attack on Titan, as I said earlier, which is really good. Like, really, really good. The only way I wouldn't recommend it is if you're not okay with gore. Or seeing your favorite characters die.

I also watched Watamote. It's kind of like if Konata from Lucky Star were an introvert. It was pretty good even if some of the episodes are hard to watch with extreme amounts of secondhand embarrassment.

Free! was also pretty good. Lots of cute boys everywhere. At least one of them was definitely gay and there may have been swimming at some point.

And I'm currently watching the World God Only Knows. I'm in season three right now, and while the first two seasons were pretty good, season three is really good.

It's absolutely nothing like Lucky Star lol They're both sort of slice of life I guess?

So I'm near the end of part 6 and oh my god what the !#%$ is going on i don't even.

One of the major characters got his memory back and now because of that snails start showing up and multiplying all over the city and there's even rainbows and if you touch the rainbow you turn into a snail and also there's a villain that can bring back memories from a city or something and he used that power to summon a football team against the main protagonist and then he says "Jolyne Kujo, enjoy being dragged over to the touchdown line."

Also the main villain is trying to go to a space center so he can "attain heaven" after he fused with a green plant baby that was born from the bone of a vampire that originated from part 1.

And to think that this all happened because of a carriage accident.

Sounds like JJBA to me. That is quite some escalation though.

That's what I love about JJBA, though.

Just when you think it can't get any weirder, it does.

And now that think about it, since Dio stole Jonathan's body, that bone that he gave to Pucci is Jonathan's bone. That would explain why the baby had the Joestar birthmark.

Pretty much, yeah.


Damn I love this series.

So I came back to this thread to say I just watched all six episodes of the Gunbuster OVA.

Wow. That was awesome. It started off pretty mellow with not much action going on, but by episode 5 it reaches levels on par with Gurren Lagann. Made by the same guys, after all. And the main character, Noriko, went through the same type of character development that Simon would go through. Starts off as a crybaby who gets bullied by her high school peers, ends up as a courageous hero remembered even thousands of years later. In just six episodes.

Oh, and Norio Wakamoto was in it voicing a major supporting character, so that's a huge plus.

Yeah, I loved it. Definitely gonna watch the sequel after this.

So, on a whim I decided to start watching the Macross franchise.

I'm up to episode 11 of Super Dimension Fortress Macross. So far I'm enjoying the fact that ace customs don't seem to be quite as prevalent as in most 'Real Robot' anime, and the focus on the fact that the standard mechs, the Valkyries, spend most of their time in their 'fighter jet' modes. It's pretty enjoyable overall, and I plan to continue through the franchise.

The characters haven't really done much developing at this point, although one of the bridge crew, Misa, got some good development of her backstory a few episodes back. On an unrelated note, while a bit repetitive, the music is pretty good.

I've got a long franchise ahead of me... here's hoping it's enjoyable the whole way through.

Similarly on the mecha front, I'm watching G Gundam.

and yeah I've been wanting to watch Gunbuster & Diebuster for some time. They seem really cool.

You can watch all of Gunbuster in roughly two and a half hours, so it's not asking for too much of your time. I think Diebuster's just as long, too.

G Gundam is another awesome one. It's so absurdly over the top and cheesy that I couldn't help but love it.

Still need to catch up on JoJo and Berserk. Currently archive binging the latter.

Berserk is pretty good. I've seen some of it and my friend is a pretty decent fan of it.

And yeah, I've just had trouble trying to find a way to watch Gun/Diebuster.

Well, I'm all caught up on Berserk, and I can officially say it's my favorite manga, maybe even favorite work of fiction to come out of Japan. Now to agonizingly wait for the next chapter to come.

Doesn't it take this guy like a year to release new chapters?

Yeah, Kentaro Miura releases like two chapters a year if he's not on hiatus. Part of it's because he's a perfectionist. He takes his time to make sure the art's perfectly detailed and what not. I don't mind that at all, though. I'd rather he take his time and give us something of high quality, rather than hurry up and produce something unsatisfactory.

Speaking of which, he released a new chapter just a few days ago. It just has to be translated now.
