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).

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...


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.

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.

Loved ep2. They made Ami a qt and the subs were much better translated than last ep. I still don't like Moon's 3d transformation but Mercury looked pretty good. The biggest problem is the hair which they animate in chunks in 3d and animate strand by strand in 2d. It's just inconsistent.
