I always said in the thread that I didn't care much about the excessive fanservice in HOTD
but I take it back, the current episode was just way too much! Specially when he got that gun over her and he just kept on shooting. My mind was just yelling "JUST TAKE IT OFF ALREADY!" >
and the whole "Breast-Dodge" Ala Matrix style didn't help. ~_~
Considering that the bullet would be traveling at the speed of sound, those are some seriously quick breasts (and damn tough to withstand those kind of G forces). I seriosly think madhouse is trolling now.
Speaking of HOTD does anyone else really dislike the videos recorded from anime network that gg are using? Apart from the massive watermark they really go heavy on the censor.
I think I finally draw the line where I personally can't stand the constant fanservice anymore. The first episode had me thinking it'd be like that all throughout the season but then after a few episodes and really thinking about it, doing that kind of quality would have just cost them way too much. So I settled and expected it to pick up, not really happening. I'll watch this regardless of the fact that I'm a bit tired of it since I'm still interested in how they're going to finish the series considering the manga doesn't even seem half way done.
I'm watching horrible subs(yeah I know, it's terrible but it's fast and smaller file) so I can't really say. I'm expecting the dvd's to be of better quality so I'm going to wait til they start releasing those to start caring too much about the subs.
Ookamisan is alright, I just really hate the narrator at times. More distracting than humorous I find it. At the very least the animation has consistent quality. It also doesn't take itself too seriously, so that's definitely a plus in my book for this kind of anime.
I just finished watching the latest Occult. Has anyone read the Novels? Is this really how the story went? I'm really curious.
[SPOILER]I like the whole fake death and everyone's reaction on it but the introduction of the Magical girls... no they can't be called girls anymore. LADIES! Magical ladies, when they showed up in the story. It feels like a filler ending is on its way.[/SPOILER]
What? There's a novel for this?

Oh yeah, I saw Black Star Shooter. It was ok, nothing too special but not bad.
^I kinda like it. It felt too short though
I was misinformed. There isn't... =_=

I just watched the last episode of Occult, good show with high quality animation, good story and good humor, but did anyone get really ticked off by the obvious paradox?
I also finished watching Asobi ni Iku yo, a fun fan servicey series that was good for what it was, but I hated the last episode. Those gliders and those space suits with the final attack, what the flying fuck was that all about?
I also like watching Kaichou wa maid-sama. I liked the ending although I would have preferred more of an epilogue.
As for K-on!!, a rather mediocre end for the show, it wasn't bad, but even now I can't really remember what happened in it. Also how many extra episodes does it need? Why not just include them in the main series numbering?
Strike Witches had a rather limp and typically saccharine ending and given the penultimate ending rather predictable too. I was also really confused by the epilogue, presumably all those extra characters are from the light novels, but to anyone who hasn't read the novels, it's really confusing and I feel like I've been short changed on plot.
HOTD has also finished an thank god for that, while the manga is testosterone filled and fan servicey, the anime just went overboard with "QUALITY" gems like Busujima beyblade and supersonic breasts. It turned a half decent manga with a decent story into an utter fucking farce of an anime. I honestly hope there isn't a second season.
So, what thoughts do you guys have?
Just saw the ending for some of the series as well.
btw I'm gonna write a Lot of spoilers in my post as I expect everyone would have seen it already.
For me the Occult Gakuin ending was really good. I didn't like the idea that the Nostradamus key was the Magical "girls". Actually I don't like having them suddenly popping-up in the series at all.
I like the twist that Bunmei is the key. It was a time paradox. The World was destroyed in the past because the future wanted to save it. Chicken and the egg all over again xD. Though when he single handedly defeated the enemies and sealed up the space/time warp. That is the part that I find hard to believe. Overall it ended in a better way that I had expected. Answered some questions and left some unanswered.
As for K-On, a graduation ending perfectly fits it. The whole series was like a hill with its up and downs. I have to confess that I enjoyed watching most of it.
While the Asobi ni Ikuyo ending is........ well I didn't like it nor hated it. My brother enjoyed it as he's a big fan of retro stuff. I wouldn't have recognize all of those Retro references if he hasn't mentioned them.
Ookami-san ending. Hmm its not much an ending but more like a "This is just a season ender and will have a second season" episode. It was just a character development and nothing has been resolved at all. Its like the series was cut in half. I like how this series started but it just went downhill from there =_=
Seitokai Yakuindomo has a wrap up season ender. Having all those flash backs (real ones and fake ones XD) was telling the audience as where the series started and where it might be heading from now on. They would have destroyed the 4th wall completely if they didn't stop there. This is one series I'm definitely waiting for a second season
HOTD. I haven't seen it yet but I think I can guess where it ends.... Its in the Mall isn't it.
