I haven't seen that poster yet, it's dang awesome!!

It's hard to hear Luke's voice without imagining him as a bad guy.

I enjoy the thought of Force-ghost!Obiwan giving him an earful on a regular basis if he does.  :D  But I agree.

Anime and Manga / Re: Your Top 10 Anime
« Last post by lilithxchan on October 08, 2017, 10:42:40 PM »
Okay as always sometimes a list needs updating. And mine does, like for real. Now some things will be the same. But there are new things to add

10. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Right off hte bat let's Start strong with PMMM, like I love Magical Girl Anime. It's like one of my favorite Genres. Madoka Magica not only falls into that Genre, but subverts it entirely. Starting off as your standard Magical Girl Fare, you can tell something is slightly off the moment the plot starts happening. And When the plot swings into full effect there's really no escaping it. Yes it's gruesome, yes it's plagued by some less than great tropes. But the story, the art, the characters, all of it makes a pretty decent show that if you haven't watched you should.




9. Trigun

I recently got this one for Christmas, I mean I had seen it way before. But Rewatching it rekindled my love for the characters. It's a western, but not like many you have seen. The lone gun man wandering the wastes, trying to do what's right by all, and without  killing anyone.  It's a tale of Triumph, Hope, and desperation, as Vash sets out to make up for the sins of his past, even if he can't remember them. The art really holds up to, and the voice acting, despite being an early dub, still works well.



8. Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood

So I've said it once, I've said it again, I'll say it a million times more. This is the Better Fullmetal Alchemist. The first one having been commissioned for an anime long before the Manga was even ever finished. Heck the Manga finally finished in the middle of the production for this anime. And really that's what makes this one better. It's true to the story, and gives you exactly what was always intended. If you haven't seen either of them, I suggest this one to the max. The Characters are memorable, each one of them feels important and important to the story. And the story itself is such a roller-coaster of emotions.



7. One Punch Man

If I enjoy PMMM for genre subversion, it's got nothing on One Punch Man. One Punch Man is set up to be your typical Shonen fare. But quickly answers the question, what happens when your hero is already at the top? What happens when there is no one stronger. Isn't it boring the be the strongest? And the fact that Saitama doesn't even come close to the look you'd expect of an all powerful super hero, just makes it all the more better. What started out as a poorly drawn webcomic, has really come to life in animation. Something beautiful and exciting to behold.



6. Outlaw Star

Kinda what prompted me reevaluate my list is the Adult Swim/Toonami is once again showing older anime on it's Saturday Night Block. And I had to think, with all the shows I watch is Outlaw Star still even on my top ten? What else could have changed? And the fact is that Yes of course it's still on my Top Ten, even in it's same spot. How could i not love a show about Space Pirates, and magic guns, and Space Ships with Grappling arms? It's too Ridiculous for me to ignore. Too Ridiculous for me not to love.



5. Kill la Kill

Speaking of things that are still on my list. Kill la Kill! I love this show, I love it so much. Studio Trigger just does this amazing beautiful animation that's just really the best. In my mind. While also technically falling into the Magical Girl Genre, it also beautifully falls into the Shonen Genre and is basically the best of the things that i love about both. And when it's not being as SERIOUS OVER THE TOP AS POSSIBLE, it's actually quite funny.  So Seriously don't lose your way, what this anime!



4. Little Witch Academia

Speaking of Studio Trigger and the amazing work they do. Little Witch Academia is one of their newer series. And it isn't just magic girls, it's just Magical. Each character in this show is memorable, and different. The Story has this amazing set up, that is kind of slow rolling and then charges full steam away. I don't know if there is a main character I like more than Akko Kaguri, she's just so adorkable.



3. Yu Yu Hakusho

So do I like Shonen anime? Yes, yes I do. But I enjoy Shonen anime that that  heart and story. Yu Yu Hakusho is an anime that I feel doesn't get the love that it deserves. Beign overshadowed by Dragon Ball Z, as both shows began their most popular airings in America at nearly the same time. While i don't think that it was a stepping stone for Yoshihiro Togashi, you can certainly feel its influence in Hunter x Hunter.  The show is good, the animation holds up, and I love the Dub... mostly for Kuwabara's dumb voice.  The action is top notch, and as I mentioned before the 4th season is weird. But it's a good weird. If you watch this anime, and you love the Shonen Action genre you won't be disappointed.



2. My Hero Academia

While i enjoy One Punch Man for being a complete genre subversion, I love My Hero Academia for just being a Shonen Anime and loving being a Shonen anime. On top of that, SUPER HEROES! I love Super Heroes so much. And while i claim that Akko is my most beloved main character, Deku comes in at a super close second. There's just so much to talk about with this anime and I couldn't know where to start. The show also answers the question "what happens if you make every girl, the best girl?" On top of just jaw dropping animation from Studio Bones, the story is incredible to follow, and what's really nice it  manages to be one of the best Shonen anime's by avoiding common pitfalls that other Shonen anime tend to walk into. Please watch this anime.



1. Cowboy Bebop

This show never ceases to impress me. I've seen every episode at least 10 times each. All the emotions and feelings of the characters, hitting me as though I were watching it for the first time. All set to the beautiful backdrop of space and jazz. Every note accentuating the tone of every episode. The present, guided by the mysteries of the past as everything comes to a head in a brilliant finish. And while there is an over arcing plot, every episode is designed to stand alone as if a small 30 minute movie for your enjoyment.  I don't know if there will ever be an anime as brilliantly done, and as masterfully executed as Cowboy Bebop. And it's one of those few times, if only times that the English Dub is absolutely better then the original Japanese cast, and I don't even mean that in a nostalgic way. And all by crazy happenstance, everythign came together to make the perfect 26 episode show. If there is one show from my list that you should watch, it's this one.



See you Later Space Cowboy

I wonder if something is happening in the ether, and with Surma drifting off, she'll be able to see it.

Misc. Topics and Games / German World War I U-Boat Found Off Belgium

From the Chicago Tribune.  My first reaction was that this is really fascinating--but on thinking about it, I agree with Governor Decaluwe about getting in touch with the German ambassador to see what should be done.  This is after all a war grave.

But a World War I time capsule... gosh.

Here's more information from BBC.com, along with a video and a couple of sketches of the wreck.
