DigDug was the first explorational anime that excavated the joy out of the purest dirt.
The anime was groundbreaking in that it broke ground in ways that no anime has done since.
It was created years before the Minecraft anime "Where's my chest?".

People who are seeing DigDug for the first time automatically think its a ripoff of the Minecraft anime "Dig a hole Doug!.
But DigDug was animated back in the 1980's, which surprises everyone, considering the modern themes of dynamic world building that are explored.

No, it's not Cowboy Bebop. The anime it's from doesn't have any symbols aside from the title, so I used the image from the highly symbolic ED.

Seems like one pic is from Ping Pong the Animation and another is from Steins Gate. Amirite Silverdream?

I think I shall.

EDIT:

First Five Episodes report

Even if you don't respect my taste in anime, I would definitely recommend this for watching. It has a good amount of blood and plot, and doesn't begin to loop endlessly after the first episode (I thought 5 was going to begin that awful cycle, though). Action and animation is fantastic, writing (dialogue) is great, and if you don't fall in love with Chaiko within three episodes, something's wrong with you. She does speak like Mordin from Mass Effect 2-3, though. Anyways, fans of CLAMP's artwork will be right at home in Hitsugi no Chaika (Coffin Princess).

Akari for best girl.
9/10 Total score

Also, I would like to request the FFE (First Five Episodes) become mandatory when suggesting anime for a month, so you can get a proper feel of the anime and keep people like me or Colette from punking out and quitting after 1-3 episodes.

If you can't watch a 12 ep show there's something wrong with you. Even if you don't like it you may as well just finish it since it's so short.

Just finished a few shows this season, so I thought I'd give my thoughts.

Terra Formars isn't really worth watching, in my opinion.

Selector Spread Wixoss (MadokaXYugioh) is actually a good sequel to a subpar first season. I watched it because I wanted to complain every week with my friends, but I actually enjoyed it, even though there were lots of unintentionally funny moments. This for example:

I think what made it better is that it cut most of the card games out. Wixoss' card game battles were really boring and badly done because you have no clue what's going on until someone wins. By focussing on the characters, it's actually interesting and entertaining.

Does this mean I can choose the anime for February since I have now finished Coffin Princess?

Okay, here's what's going to happen.

Overwatch has picked January's anime, Chaika.

Since mgb was able to beat Vami in the race, he can pick February's anime.

Vami will pick March's anime.

In the event that no new member who has watched at least one of the anime we've seen comes along to pick an anime for May, Insert_Blank gets to choose.

If no new member who has watched at least one anime comes along, Natalya gets to pick again.

I forfeit any ability to choose an anime for any month. I'm just here for the food.
