    Well, got a few thoughts.

    1. Don't you just hate it when you toss some cables aside (my earphones in this case), and then when you pick them up, they somehow end up having thousand impossible knots lol

    2. There is an orchestra concert/music hall right across my house, and they tend to have practice on starurdays. Today, they were playing Pirates of the Caribbean medley, and I was listening to some One Piece OST erlier, which made me think; Pirates and orchestra sure go well together lol

    Wish they'd do some anime medley, stuff like OP and Kill la Kill have good orchestra.

    • 1. The one thing I hate is when you want to move, then suddenly you pulled out (read:ripped out) the cable (read:earphone) from the pc, and then panicked if you damaged either the plug or the cable.

      2. I have no opinion on that (doesn't watch One Piece), but suggestion: send an anime song composition as a song request to those people.

    • Well, for comparison:

      He's a Pirate (PotC)

      Luffy VS Ratchet, round 1 (OP)

      Schibukai (OP)

      Kiryuu G@ KiLL (KLK)



      Would love to hear those across the street lol, reminds me of how Bleach OST played at the Olympics

      But yeah, that's why some people marathon an anime after it finishes its season.

    • In this case, it was SAO.

      SAO doesn't have episode previews tho, so it makes me all the more curious what happens lol

    • lol, side note, I was just thinking to myself how people tend to forget how dangerous youkai are, and then in the latest ep of Gegege, a death happens.

      Doesn't help it was meant to be a children's (well, younger audience that is) show airing on sunday lol

    • Gegege no Kitaro is a reboot I think?

      This year is full of reboots.

        Loading editor
    • Can't complain, never watched the originals :P

      That said, I think this is the 3rd or 4th Gegege reboot lol (it is a very old franchise).



      It does feel like it's meant to be a continuation of the series, as they seem to imply that you know who these characters are, and one particular one grew from cute to gorgeous :P (dem legs)



      Also, side topic, something interesting just happened, a frog out of all things happened to be sitting right in front of my door... smack dab in the middle of the city no less.

        Loading editor
    • Is the weather really dry for it to appear there?

      Frog likes damp places, so he might be lost or something.


      And yeah, I've seen Gegege's promo art before, the art different is very significant lol.

        Loading editor
    • It is dry, but what I'm surprised about is from where the frog appeared from lol

      There is a river nearby, but it's not exactly close, poor guy had quite the walk jump

    • I heard some frogs buried themselves in the ground until it rains; maybe he was just nearby?

      And Appli Monsters isn't even bad. The plot is kept simple because it's aimed at kids, but that's also it's charming point.

      Most importantly, the story wrap itself nicely.

      Once again you asked that question...

    • Eh, it seemed like a worse remake of Xros Wars 2 to me.

        Loading editor
    • That's probably because you didn't watch it until the end.

      At first, it does seems like it recycle ideas from Hunter who leaped through time, but that's because Appli Monsters, or rather, Appli Drive is the successor to Xros Loader (in term of merchandise).

      But that's probably the only thing similar to Xros Wars. Unlike Xros Wars, Appmon has proper level and evolutions.

      Appli Monsters try to distinct themselves from Digimon franchise by not (re) using the same pattern of plots, yet it still keep the dark theme that makes you think "Ah, this is digimon after all".

      If you're someone who watched Digimon Adventures, I do think this anime will appeal to you. You just need to discard the thinking that it is similar to Xros Wars 2, and you're set. Like I said, besides Applink being similar to DigiXros, it's not similar at all.

    • lol, how many times can one bait and switch for one scene

      You know a plan is not gonna work because then you wouldn't have anything to watch for the rest of the arc, but it looks like it might work, but it doesn't look like it will work, but it just might work, but no doesn't look like it, but maybe...

      A clip that perfectly captures the spirit:

    • lol.

      Anyway, Appli Monsters is a spiritual successor to Digimon - throwing Digimon away completely will make the company loses $$$ after all. Though who knows if they slowly shift to Appmon in the next 10 years- after all, mobile app is more popular than pc these days.


      By the way, moments of this week's GGO LLENN;

      GGO 5 -1

      SAO janai yo.

      GGO 5 -2

      I love these eyes.

      GGO 5 -3

      These eyes too.

      GGO 5 -4

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, really glad GGO got it's own spinoff show.

        Loading editor
    • C-Z

      Pardon my intrusion. u_u

      Is GGO really that good because I'm still on the fence after the first SAO series. I understand it's not SAO but a spinoff but I just hope there's actual good writing and characters...

      Ah, and it's not like I hate the mangaka behind SAO though, especially since he's basically writing a reboot(?) of it. I'd love to see that animated. 

        Loading editor
    • I never watched SAO, so I can't use comparison as a comment, but GGO is not your death game MMO (LLENN even said so in the anime as the pic above says); it's more like a sports-like shounen anime imo.

      Though in this case, the sport is MMO shooting (I think there's a genre on this, but I don't know the exact word).

      The story isn't deep, so if you're looking for an anime you can enjoy each week without thinking, I'll recommend this to you.


      Also, this thread is definitely for attracting anime lovers all over the wiki; anyone is always welcomed.

        Loading editor
    • @C-Z if you're talking about GGOA, its written by a different person and its pretty good so I would recommend watching it ;3

    • Yeah, I stopped calling it SAO in this thread since you (Hiki) kept calling it GGO lol

      I could've sworn... 

      Wait, hold on..*looks it up*.

      When I said reboot, I meant Sword Art Online Progressive. It's a more in depth story than the first SAO story he made. It's still going too. 

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, GGO was originally an Arc in Kirito SAO.

      EDIT: oh wow, so much SAO franchise I didn't know about lol

        Loading editor
    • First things first... SAO II is GGO, so calling this GGO would probably be the least accurate.  Imma stick with GGOA cause it's easiest but other interpretations are fine



      and SAO Progressive is a whole different thing.  it's also good, it's just not what we were talking about

        Loading editor
    • C-Z said he wants SAO Progressive to be anime- so it's kinda a new topic altogether.

      As long as it's SAO (and Kirito), I probably won't touch it, but I'll welcome other spin-offs. It's not that I have anything against him; but catching up to all of his anime will be troublesome.

      By the way, I guess no people here watches Toji no Miko?

        Loading editor
    • GGOA it is.

      @Hikari: AH, Miko, that's why your avatar looks familiar.

        Loading editor
    • Yup. Etou Kanami desu.

      The animators are really enjoying themselves in the second arc; they draw quite a lot of different face expressions in the past few weeks for the characters.

      Even Konohana Suzuka, a (somewhat) side character (she was one of the antagonist in 1st arc) got many expressions this week, though she only has like 5 minutes of screentime.

      There also hired Chiwa Saitou for the 2nd arc - so I guess they have a lot of budget to spend on.

      Looking at the second arc, it feel like a post-game/fandisc content lol with the slice of life; though they still have last boss(es) to fight.

      I like it when the animators enjoy drawing the animations; the anime will be livelier and brighter.

      Same can be said to P.A works; especially the still-airing Uma Musume.

        Loading editor
    • Have not watched it, but looked interesting enough :P

    • Yes, the one before is Kohagura Ellen. The 'Morishima Haruka' of Toji no Miko; English-Japanese mixed blood.

      As a side note: El-Condor Pasa in UmaMusume acts similar to Ellen, and Taiki Shuttle sometimes spout Engrish in the anime.

      I like Ellen's freedom-ness and the happy go lucky personality, though I personally think that I understand Kanami more - the one mystery person that lives in her own world with her own common sense, eccentric battle maniac.

        Loading editor
    • On Sun/Moon: I haven't watch it for the 2nd season; I lost interest in it- probably will catch up later if there are interesting episodes. Also, the 3rd opening song isn't as good as Alola!

      And yes, Bakemonogatari series is a must-watch- though marathoning them + movie is going to take a long time.

      SHAFT intentionally make it so that their animation can be determined at first glance, or so I read on wikipedia. Their signature head-tilt, abstract background - and also their habit of ending things in OVA (I'm not sure if the last one is intentional though).

      Sengoku Nadeko Bakemonogatari

      signature head-tilt

      Last Encore 2-1

      Another example of head-tilt.


      Anyway.... Bakemonogatari episodes, in chronological order:

      1. Bakemonogatari - 12+3 episodes
      2. Kizumonogatari - 3 movies
      3. Nisemonogatari - 11 episodes
      4. Nekomonogatari (Black) - 4 episode OVA
      5. Monogatari Second Season - 24 episodes
      6. Hanamonogatari - 5 episodes OVA
      7. Tsukimonogatari - 4 episodes OVA
      8. Owarimonogatari - 13 episodes
      9. Koyomimonogatari - 12 short episodes
      10. Owarimonogatari II - 7 episodes OVA

      And Zokuowarimonogatari is scheduled to be aired this year, so you should do your best to catch up.

      Be prepare of an anime full of dialogues and (running) jokes.

      Owarimonogatari 13-1

      Shitsure, kamimashita.


      EDIT: I should also mention that Bakemonogatari manga started last March, and it only has 7 chapters (as of now), so you have the option follow that instead of tons of anime, albeit at a slower pace.

        Loading editor
    • Oh, that's actually not so bad, thought each series had around 25 eps, this is doable.

      Thanks for the chronological order, it's the main reason why I never picked it up, didn't know what's where lol

      Wikipedia lists season 2 under several names you didn't list



      Well, I'll just try to find a "release" order, those are always the best imo

        Loading editor
    • ah, that's because all of those names are in the same season; you can just watch them from episode 1 to 24.

      The movie is out of release order though- and I should mention if we're really going for chronological order:

      1. Zokuowari movie is the prequel, then Nekomonogatari Black, then Bakemonogatari. Not that NisioisiN wrote the novel in that order though.
      2. Hanamonogatari is after Owarimonogatari (many things make so much sense once I rewatch the OVA back), though it is written by NisioisiN before he writes Owarimonogatari. This author is a genius.
      3. Koyomimonogatari is basically a random story in-between the series, so you'll have to watch previous seasons to know where the story fits in the timeline.
      4. Shinobu Mail (in owari I) and Nekomonogatari White (aka a part of season 2) happens at the same time.
        Loading editor

    • Speaking of Fumoffu.

      @Hikari: FMP: Fumoffu should be up your alley. It's basically to FMP what Carnival is to Fate (more realistic tho). You CAN watch it without watching normal FMP, but some jokes will be lost (similar to how you probably didn't get some Tsukihime jokes)

      other than that it was still of good quality






      on another note: pretty sure this arc of food wars is what is entertaining me the most out of any series this season

      "hey this person is going to kill me"

    • It depends on the person's personality anyway; you can expect every single person to react heavily to such things: there's a chance that he's just being paranoid.

      Killing is not to be taken lightly, but LLENN doesn't really know Pito-san and M that much to know whether they're telling the truth or just exaggerating things... It's the most normal and common reaction you can find.

      Aka you should remind yourself you're not one of those common masses.

    • Compared to this season's Lostorage conflated, Lostorage incited is quite slow actually. And as usual, they use a weak protagonist that you feel like punching them in the face because they can't do anything- but that's besides the point.

      As for the plot, it is darker than Selector Wixoss, as you lost your memory by losing (randomly selected), and if you lose all your coins, you'll be replaced by your lrig. Which might be a good or a bad idea depends on your lrig- well, let's just say one didn't end up well.

      It is still unknown about the LRIGs origin this time, but probably they're beings like Yuki and Tama, pure lrigs.

      Copying CEO:

      Slow pace, but great tears/5.


      Meanwhile, since Lostorage conflated is like an all-star cast, the pace is quite fast with fights battoru in every episode. The characters are still fools though, it's just like they didn't learn anything from the previous seasons...

      All in all, Conflated >>> incited.

      Though, the thing is, you'll miss a lot if you started watching conflated without watching incited, as everything that happens in incited wixoss is the plot build up for conflated, and they will be referencing incited every episode.

      Conflated seems lighter and more spirited than incited, but probably that's just me hyping for ruuko and tama.

      As far as plot goes, you would learn the tiny bits of what happened in incited as the story goes on (they do love flashbacks lol) so it might be doable.



      On a note, I urge you people to watch GeGeGe no Kitaro episode 6, it's a standalone episode so you can watch it even if you don't know a thing about the show. Episode 7 is awesome too.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, one of my biggest problems with incited was that Suzuko was utterly insufferable for the first half or so. And conflated re-using an OVA to sloppily retitle the first episode is not only false advertising, but downright scummy if you ask me.

      Other than that, I'm finding conflated to be an improvement, even if it is overall gonna be rushed due to the cast size in your average run of the mill 12 episode season.

    • Ah, poor Araragi, got the craziest one right off the bat, and there is no escape lol

      Do note that conflated is the 4th season though. (Infected-->spread-->incited-->conflated) It'd be weird jumping from infected to conflated, because the last scene you see is tama betraying ruuko.

      And yeah, I was wondering if that ova is mistakenly uploaded by people; apparently it's not? Watching 1st episode twice isn't what I expected tbh.

      Also, take a look at the new Gemini, then take a look at my youtube link above.

      Perfect fit.

    • The thing is, Araragi doesn't hide his... behaviour/tendency, and unlike many shounen protagonist, we can never see him blushing besides with senjougahara.

      And also probably because despite the many female leads, all the male characters have strong images by themselves?

      Plus, Araragi family's over the board jokes probably swamp down the hates. Like brushing teeth scene.

      After you finished everything, I'll give you the link to some of the translated short stories (unless you found them yourselves). Like the sequel to teeth brushing part, for example.

        Loading editor
    • I sum it up like this:

      1. Kirito - people are jelly of him

      2. Araragi - people wanna be him



      Well, if I remember, I'll ask.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, that summary is probably correct.

        Loading editor
    • @Otakon7

      On the Kirito 'hate' subject tho... I think its more to do with the fact that most of the characters in SAO are one-dimensional to begin with, him particuarly (that and the plot armour). Not all off the top of my head, but most.

      That aside though, I really should get back to finishing up that next chapter of my Vanguard/Wixoss fic. I can't just leave it half-done for even more days.

      Minor heads up, the first 20 or so chapters (minus the revamped first three) do not have the best quality compared to the later ones and there is a single change to the canon of infected before going into this fic. Akira's wish is not tainted prior to the start of this fic, which was admittedly an error on my part from writing it, partly from the fact that we don't see what her first loss was onscreen prior to her defeats to Ruko and Iona(Yuki), though I do give an in universe reason why much later on in the third arc. Card Lists for all the re-adapted and story original cards exist in Google Drive links on my profile, though I am the process of transferring them to the Cardfight!! Vanguard Fanon wikia and my user pages on the Wixoss wikia instead for simplicity's sake. I've also done a few one-shots and a currently-on-hiatus side story that tie into the fic itself.

      But Karen does beat Koyomi; because he doesn't want to use his vampiric powers to deal with his own sister.

      But again, we have no proof if Karen's moves can actually send people to hospital, but I'm inclined to believe that (she learns martial arts from a dojo apparently).

      As for TriMon is English, most of Bushi’s mobile games don’t hit English. They actually have quite a few. I would love it if they did it, but it could go different ways. Honestly, they should have made it a simultaneous release.

      Scene two, he shoots himself in the face in JP, in EN, he blows his whole head off with an energy blast, with flying chinks.
