    Galactic Heroes is a remake? Why are non-mainstream shows getting remakes but not things like Gundam or Macross?

    Darling in the Franxx is really good, it has some great action and the second episode will have you dying of laughter with how ridiculous it is.

    I just started Hinamatsuri and I love it. It's a really great comedy. It's also one of those shows where you get a feel of what it's going to be like in the first 5 min... so it wont take long for you to realize how great it is Tongue Out

    Galactic Heroes was huge, 152 episodes and 3 movies. Also Gundam and Macross have both gotten new series regularly. Gundam started a new series a few weeks ago and is getting another movie later this year. Macross is also getting a new series this year and had a movie in February.

    You said the new series was a remake. Is it the original with updated art and audio? Or is it a continuation. I know Gundam and Macross are still going, since you said Galactic Heroes is a remake I was saying that it's weird that those two series aren't getting the same treatment.

    Anyone watching anything interesting? I've been trying to get through Full Metal Panic! but it's slow going. I keep having to stop and cringe during the school scenes. The military stiff is pretty cool though

    I binge watched Full Metal Panic! a few months back. Need to watch the new series though.

    I literally just finished watching Kiss X Sis... I genuinely do NOT recommend it!! It is possibly the most cringy thing I've ever seen. Nisekoi was pretty good for comic value. I'm about to start The World God Only Knows...

    Gotta watch me some harem...

    I'm also trying to rewatch Full Metal Panic so I remember what happened before I watch the new series. You could try and watch the... I guess it's a spinoff, in a way. The "second" season is called Fumoffu, it's just full on comedy. I know you said you're watching for the military action but might help.

    Otherwise Knights and Magic is a fun mecha series that seemed to be way more popular than I thought it was. The eng dub has 1.4mil views on YouTube, that has to be wrong, right? Knights of Sidonia is on Netflix and is basically like Attack on Titan in space. If you're a Gundam fan the new Build Fighters series looks great.

    I also enjoyed Nisekoi, the art style is nice and it's really funny. You're going to have a great ♥♥♥♥ing time with The World God Only Knows, Kerry.

    I wouldn't say I'm watching it for the military action, I like a good school comedy as much as the next guy, Sagura is just so...weird sometimes. I guess that's how he's supposed to be.

    I've Finished ShiroBako, and I absolutely loved it. Especially this scene...

    I2M1jI8

    Even though it was highly stylized and had drama added for drama's sake, I do have more respect for the animation industry now then I did before (which was a lot to begin with.)

    I'm at a loss as what to watch next, I do have FMP on the go (gotta wait till the 18 for the next episode), and I've finished SAO GGO ALT.

    Though I seem to be on a Slice of Life tangent at the moment...


    I am EAGERLY awaiting BackStreet Girls though. The Premise alone only confirms that Japan is the Reigning Champs of "WTF".

    Synopsis:
    BackStreet Girls: A group of 3 yakuza failed their boss for the last time. After messing up an important job, the boss gave them 2 choices: honorably commit suicide, or go to Thailand to get a sex reassignment surgery in order to become "female" idols. After a gruesome year training to become idols, they successfully debut, with overwhelming popularity, much to their dismay. This is where their tragedy truly begins.

    Side note: I finished Mobile Suit Gundam: Origin I-VI and thoroughly enjoyed it all 7+ hours. I think they could have shaved an episode of drama but, meh. Overall, it's really Char Aznable's tale of how he came to be "The Red Comet", as almost every other character in the original Gundam series have either barely any screen time (Bright Noah) or a minimal amount in order to tie them to the Origin series and original (Amuro, I'm looking at YOU).

    I'd recommend it, but dear lawdy don't binge it. Maybe one episode a week.

    Shirobako is a treasure. I can't wait for the movie to be released!
    I love SAO, so I've been meaning to watch GGO Alt. I'll get around to it before Alicization comes out.

    I've got to say, Cells at Work is probably my favorite show of the summer.

    So I'll jump in here and say that while I'm not current on most anime, I loved watching Sword Art Online. I tend to be a little cynical in nature while watching anime, like the hero tendency of 'If my attack isn't working, I'll just scream louder and that'll make it work' or 'I'm going to attack you but first we'll stand off against one another and growl for twenty minutes' (I'm looking at you Dragonball Z).

    Admittedly, most of my favourite animes are ages old, like Dominion:Tank Police. I remember when they first started to appear on VHS in the early 90's under the Manga label and we got Legend of the Overfiend, Venus Wars and RG Veda, some were twisted as all hell, especially the Overfiend and then we come to Akira. Stunning animation and visuals, awesome soundtrack but surreal as anything.

    I started to watch a new series where spirit characters appear wielding legendary weapons and have huge fights, but I can't remember the name. Sad
