I'll keep an eye out for the film then, (although I think I'll skip all the "girls und swimsuit" content :warhead: ).

Since I've left the forum I've watched FMA and am halfway through Attack on Titan. I've seen an episode of Kill la Kill and No Game No Life. I'm also planning on watching Black Lagoon...my girlfriend loves anime...

The AoT dub is slightly better than I expected.

Yeah, Eren still sounds like Dark Knight!Batman, and Kid Eren's voice sounds like it belongs to a South Park character, but the other VAs are all really good.

I mostly prefer dubs but have promised a few people I'd give the sub a chance. Unfortunately.

I think that there are a few dubs that are great or better than the original, but most subs are better than the dub. Here's a list of what I think are the equal or better dubs:

-Samurai Champloo
-Cowboy Bebop
-Panty, Stocking & Garterbelt
-Baccano!
-Black Lagoon
-Fullmetal Alchemist (both series)
-Ghost Stories
-Steins;Gate

and the Ghibli dubs.

I actually really liked the Attack on Titan dub. I've seen the first half of the series so far, but I don't know if the second half ever got dubbed (not that I found, anyways).

I have plans to watch Bebop, Black Lagoon, and then Brotherhood as well, so glad the dubs are good.

Found this. It explains that scene in Code Geass R2. Spoilers.

So I abandoned the quest to troll my mom with Code Geass since it was taking so long. In the spirit of Kyubey's efficiency, I instead took up the much shorter quest of trolling her with Madoka.

And boy has it been paying out. :twisted:

We're currently on episode 7, right before the glorious troll payout on episodes 8 & 9.

I remember watching Hellsing (original, not ultimate) and Samurai X with my mom when I was in highschool. Her only comment was "well, it's exciting if you like watching people get dismembered, I guess."

Good old mom...

Aldnoah Zero Episode 3

Spoiler: show
Holy shit, that was awesome. Also, that after credit scene. The soundtrack for this episode was tight, as in the first episode I was thinking the OST was too similiar to Attack on Titan.

The Princess is surprisingly badass for someone I expected to be sheltered. I wonder if Sloane (or whatever his name is) will defect to the other martians or maybe even the Terrans.

Edit: this is pretty cute out of context:

She probably wouldn't mind. She's nurse, she's seen gross stuff.
