I have been somewhat more so as of late. I want to apologize for my rudeness in ignoring you and others.

Watched episode 1 of Hamatora. It was... eh. Not really anything keeping me interested.

Spring 2014 anime have already been announced.

Not really sure at this point what I'm interested in. Fairy Tail's long awaited revival is here, though I never watched the anime I did read the manga up to a point (I actually think about where the anime is going to be starting back up). Gokukoku no Brynhildr could be interesting. With a tagline like "I can be the greatest man in the world, because I am a virgin!!", Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun might be hilarious. New season of Jojo for those who care. Kamigami no Asobi ~Ludere deorum~ is a reverse harem with Greek gods. No Game No Life sounds just dumb enough to maybe be good. 2nd season of Date a Live will be my guilty pleasure show no doubt, as I watched the first season. Mildly interested in Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin. The only one I'm really excited for is 2nd season of Mushishi!

Aside from Mushishi, nothing else on that list looks particularly interesting.

Why is it that every mecha anime recently has had a high schooler piloting it? I wasn't interested in that concept in the first place. The next 86 times it was used just made it worse.

I could accept it in Code Geass, since it wasn't just a case of "random high school kid finds mech." But for the most part it's just awful...

You can place the blame with Mobile Suit Gundam.

I don't remember Gundam pilots being school students? It's possible I'm thinking the characters were older than they actually were, but I don't remember high school life being part of the series.

Then again, it's been so long since I saw the early series..es... that I could just be remembering only the parts I cared about.

I know Gundam 00 had some of the high school stuff. I also didn't watch all that much of it.

Oh, you meant high schooler as in the "Slice of Life" ******** that's been appearing in mech series. Amuro Ray was the first high school kid to pilot a mech as far as I can remember.

Oh yeah, that.

It's one thing if they're using a military academy plot line, and the daily life of the cadets is an aspect. Or like with Evangelion, where they're just kids being used as tools by adults, and that is explored.

But the whole "I was walking home one day when I fell into a cockpit and now I'm a mecha pilot who saves the world" thing just kills me.

I mean, in general the "high school kid saves the world" trope is overdone, but it's easier to swallow when the plot line isn't them randomly coming to possess a giant robot. Not great, but better. Even then, though, the slice of life stuff is taxing. If they're going to do it, I'd prefer it was more like Bleach. You get the part where the secrets strain relationships, but I don't have to endure an episode where they're all going out to Karaoke, and almost all of the series takes place completely independently from school.

Sidonia no Kishi might be up your ally idiggory. it's mecha that doesn't follow that trope least with it being a high schooler blind lucks into a mech and saves the day the main charater is just high school age iirc. I lost interest in the manga but I'm going to give it shot. Others I might try is Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei but there was parts of the plot that never got explained fully in the manga and there is a second title that continues the story but only 2 chapters of that is out so it will most likely end where the first did. Black bullet is another that the manga was interesting but I haven't been keeping up with it.

Somehow I missed this before. I'm kinda excited for an Atelier anime. Will have to read the rest later.

Yup. It's pretty good, too, if a bit too fanservicey for my tastes.

I tried watching it, but by the midpoint of the first episode, I was forcing myself to finish it. I had a hard time focusing with the art style, and the humor isn't really my style. Then came some pretty insane fanservice.

Not saying it's bad, just not for me. Smiley: lol

You're either a week late, or your levels are different than mine.

Has anyone been watching Valgrave. I watched the first episode, but it looked to be one of those slice of life mecha shows. But the kotaku review of season 2 says it's solid...

IS IT a slice of life mecha? If not, I might give it a shot.

I'm partway through a bunch of anime started at some point in the past year. Smiley: lol

It starts off as slice of life, but it quickly goes full Gundam by the 3rd episode. I highly recommend watching it.

The art and animation is quite good, but I think the humor is a little too low brow.

I only watched the first 2 episodes, but I agree with this. For a show with so much adult content, the jokes are at the level of a 14-year-old. It reminds me a little bit of Superjail, actually. Except that Superjail's weirdness and extreme violence made better low-brow eye candy, in my opinion.

Tonari no Seki-kun is freaking hilarious and a must watch. Robot Girls Z is reasonably entertaining, and reminds me of Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan.
