Just finished Gantz. That was a terrible, terrible experience.

Time to start watching Sidonia no Kishi, or the better SnK now. <3

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / I changed my password on RotMG... (yes, it borked)

Hi everyone!
I changed my password on the RotMG website a while ago, and now when I log in through Kongregate it shows an infinite loading screen. When I try to log in through realmofthemadgod.com, it then says “too many failed login attempts”, so I can only assume kongregate tried to log in again and again through my original account but could not log in. Any ideas on how to fix this?

My tidbits of thought:

Kuragehime is wonderful. The manga is even better.
I hate Nisekoi with a burning passion.
Ore Monogatari is still the best anime of the season, but the new Grisaia gives it a run for its money (the new stuff is so much better than the 1st season)

GearsChicken: new to anime? Watch Fate/Zero.

Triage X has a really cool story and I like the MC. But holy tits (literally), does every girl have back problems from their breasts? Everyone in that show has painfully large breasts.

Triage X is… painfully boring. I can’t believe the mangaka stopped drawing HotD for this.

You know what’s going to be equally bad? Monster Musume D:

Quick question, regarding this image!

I tried searching and doing my research all over Google, but couldn’t find anything, but now I am not sure where she is from, so can someone please tell me where she is from?

Did a reverse image search on Google and couldn’t find anything either- it’s probably an original character?

Pre-millenium anime certainly had an interesting art style, although I myself find it interesting. Worst art is probably from 2004-2009, like School Days, Myself; Yourself, etc. It just looks cheap.

Yeah, I’ll past. A lot of these sites I find are hoax. I find this one site… Pfft, silent anime anyone?

I mean, I’ve actually downloaded a lot of anime. It’s not a hoax or anything.

Watching School Days. So many nice boats.

Mirai Nikki, Spice and Wolf and K-on. Apparently they’re all supposed to be bad but I’m enjoying them.

K-On actually has a fair amount of entertainment value.

I enjoyed Mirai Nikki, although I do partially agree with the critics. Some of the arcs need serious work, and there are a fair number of plot holes

Whoever disparaged Spice and Wolf should BUUUUURN

I recently started watching Robotics;Notes and holy shit is it good. I’m very much reminded of Stein’s Gate, and am at episode 10. Why haven’t I ever heard about this before?

That’d make sense, since Robotics;Notes is part of a trio of Visual Novels which include Steins;Gate.

Hello fellow anime fans.


Anyone who watches / knows about the following anime they’d like to discuss? (You know, I haven’t bothered reading the thread).


  • Tokyo Ghoul Root A – My opinion: Terribad compared to the first season. Damn. The amount of wtf compared to the manga this anime has, it’s almost

  • As bad as Akame Ga Kill, which decided mid season to go COMPLETELY OFF story wise. What the hell? The manga is still going, Anime is done?

  • Also liking Log Horizon, tho it’s a bit stale at moments. Boring, almost. I’d rather enjoy some ecchi DxD or IS.

  • Last but not least, Death Parade. I almost feel like the studio behind Death Note had made this sick anime. It’s cool but also damn cruel ._.

  • Tokyo Ghoul Root A – I never really enjoyed the first season in the first place- I always felt that it was too rushed to have any buildup. The second season is even worse- the pacing has become so twisted and garbled it’s almost painful to watch.

    Akame ga Kill – I understand their reason to do an anime-original ending, as by the last few episodes the anime had already caught up to the manga and had to spin off in its own direction. Granted, it was a terrible direction. I’ve caught up with the manga – it’s good, but not as good as I hoped.

    Log Horizon – Immersive game world shows like these always deal with the problem of losing traction at some point. Log Horizon, SAO, 1/2 Prince all had to deal with this problem. The “lack of actual death” feature implemented in this show from the start only served to accelerate it.

    Death Parade – This show is enjoyable, but lately I’ve been finding points that don’t seem to be that enjoyable. The psychological aspect of the show is starting to get a little gimmicky. Likewise, intertwining an episodic series with an overarching storyline have ultimately made for some awkward pacing.

    I really can’t decide between Minerva and Vulcan. They both look well…pretty moe lol.

    TWGOK is my favorite. Show. Ever.
    I had never really liked any of the goddesses, but from the manga my favorite would probably be Diana. The manga makes Tenri a really likeable character, as compared to the brief seconds of fame that Tenri gets in the anime.

    It’s not all that funny, but it might just be a bad dub.(I just prefer dubs, helps with multitasking).

    I’m curious enough to just binge the rest of this. Even by supernatural standards, the plot doesn’t make any dang sense yet, so I wanna see the explanation :P

    I considered Kokoro Connect to be more or less a romantic drama, rather than a comedy. I really enjoyed it myself. Inaba <3

    If you have ever seen SAW and liked it, then you will probably enjoy Kaiji more than me. It’s a great thriller since I was on the edge literally the whole time watching it. It’s just a really niche show and not everyone can enjoy it.

    SAW?

    Real bad? Why do you say so? I’m enjoying this new season.

    For me, at least, this season has incredibly poor pacing, little emotional impact, and generally not enough suspense to retain my interest.

    After my month-long manga trip, it looks like I’m finally starting to get back into anime after watching Freezing today. Freezing is still bad, though.

    Speaking of bad things, Tokyo Ghoul Root A is REAL bad.

    Serious question guys:
    Do you read the manga for anime that’s currently airing or is going to air? I am trying to decide that for myself.

    Like JoJo?

    Not really. JoJo did it in a way that was self-aware and almost satirical in a sense.

    I might have to look at Ultimate then. Is it required to watch the other one first, whether for understanding or chronology?

    No. The original Hellsing deviates from the manga. Hellsing Ultimate’s basically a more faithful reboot. I ended up watching Hellsing first, though, because otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to watch it. The only pluses are that the animation is fairly decent for 2001 and the OST is very good.
    It’s closer to a slice of life with quirky characters. I definitely consider it to be a comedy, just not a random chaos one. Comedy with plot, or perhaps plot with comedy. Pure comedy anime are typically terrible.

    Who said comedy couldn’t have plot? D:
    Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun is basically a parody romcom. It does have plot, but the original material is a 4-koma (panel) gag manga, so it’s pretty obvious that it’s a comedy.
    When I saw Nichijou I went 5 episodes and had burned up any will to watch that kind of genre again no matter how talked up it was.

    Please don’t watch Nichijou all at once. That’s bad for your health.
    Mushishi is essentially about a guy who goes around curing people from what are essentially ghosts.

    Yeah, that’s about it. I wouldn’t say the episodes are slow, just extremely peaceful and calming. It is a fantasy drama, and a very good one at that. Don’t watch this one all at once either.

    I’ve read Girls of the Wild’s — it hasn’t quite hit that high chord with me.

    How’s The Breaker? Didn’t know it was a webcomic too

    Oh, I dunno if The Breaker is good or not. I just saw “Korean”. Sorry. D:
    Read Orange Marmalade! That one is sweet.

    Now that you’ve gotten into manga, you must get into korean webcomics. In order of sexiest:

    Magician.
    Tower of God.
    Feng Shen Ji
    Noblesse.

    Oh rats, I totally forgot about Homunculus. And yeah, that’s pretty much what I mean by “elitist”.

    Speaking of Inio Asano, I read Nijigahara Holograph and Umibe no Onnanoko last night. While they were good, they were kind of confusing (especially Nijigahara Holograph) and over-realistic and IMO didn’t really compare to Solanin/Oyasumi Punpun.
