I forget he also does serious stuff. Kids on the Slope was really popular a few years back and most people have a giant boner for Macross Plus.

I have a general, all purpose boner for all things Macross - that being said, I prefer Macross 7 (and the associated OVA's) over Macross Plus.

Macross Frontier and the recent films are by far the best of the collection so far. DAT MACROSS QUARTER.

On another note, I have laid my filthy little mitts on Suisei no Gargantia after a recommendation from a friend.

I'll let ya'll know what I think soon enough.

So I have now sat my way through six or so episodes of Suisei no Gargantia (otherwise known as Gargantia on the Verdurous planet) and I have to say I am enjoying this well made, fairly laid back little series.

I have to admit, the plot line itself strikes me as being family close to webcomics I read nearly a decade ago (language barrier and culture shock, the main character is a warrior from an eternal war thrown into a completely opposite society, oh the future lulz) but it is something I can just turn on and sit through fairly brainlessly for a few hours, so it gets a thumbs up from me.

Yeah I liked Gargantia well enough. Apparently s2 is forthcoming.

I've only seen Macross original to Plus (including II, Zero and whatever other little OVAs there were). Planning on doing 7 soon. I really liked II which I understand is not usual for most people. I thought Plus was anime TopGun without all the cool stuff that made TopGun a bad/good movie.

I was thinking of watching it, perhaps we can watch it together and beat each other off to all the fictional japanese girls.

Aldnoah Zero Episode 2:

This is turning into Red Dawn with mecha. Also, for some reason the CG doesn't bother me.

I mean, I should've seen that coming but I didn't really. Solid way to get the main characters involved, though.

I'm not much of an anime watcher, but I did find this series called Girls und Panzer. Some of the characters are a bit thin and the first few episodes are seemingly quite uneventful, but it does have a semi-tangible plot and (as the name suggests) it has tanks, and impressively animated ones at that...

Silva, if you're a big fan of the Butcher you're doing yourself a disservice by not watching Kamen Rider Gaim. It's live action and some of the cgi is cheap looking since it's on a TV budget but it's a solid entry in his portfolio.

You can find the show easily enough (aesir subs are the way to go. The guy is a native English speaker and unlike anime subs live action stuff is usually translated by people whose 2nd language is English and 3rd is Japanese).

I love Girls und Panzer. Not because of the cute, but because of the tanks and the strategy (as well as some satire of WWII). Once you've finished, the studio recently released an OVA where the girls actually battle Anzio.

Also Insert Blank, I'll give it a shot later. Right now I'm watching Psycho Pass, Knights of Sidonia, and the currently airing shows Love Stage, Aldnoah Zero, Zankyou no Terror and DRAMAtical Murder.

Ah, I'd heard that was on it's way, I'll try and find it somewhere when I feel like it, good to know they've finally got it out.

There's also a bunch of specials from the blu rays. I haven't seen it, but I'm assuming it's just stuff like this. In the fall there's supposed to be a Girls Und Panzer movie coming out.
