    I am by no means knowledgeable about anime, having only a very small handful of movies, so what I'm looking for, may not exist:

    Anything about German ww2 subs?
    Anything, Girls und Panzer aside, about WW2 tank battles?

    Watching it a bit. It kinda sucks. Main kid is an idiot.

    i miss classic Zoids series. I loved Chaotic Century and Zero. They were mostly war machines instead of wild beasts. You had actual cockpits. Here they ride on the back. I miss zoids with cannons. Like Liger Zero Jager armor.

    Zoids was always sort of in-between the two. While they did have cockpits, they were almost always depicted as somewhat alive (CC esp, Zero was just a hint of it) I always saw them as living creatures who people militarized & armored up to fight. I tried to watch some Zoids that were made afterwards, I think Genesis & Fuzors? but I couldn't get much into them. Also, Main kid being an idiot is almost a prerequisite for like 40% of anime nowadays, especially zoids, or at least headstrong & doesn't think ahead.

    Yeah they were somewhat alive, but mostly were piloted machines. Like 85% machine 15% alive. It had a spirit. These Wild ones are like 90% alive 10% piloted machine.

    Plus the zoid's eyes in this series are freaky. They used to be like a glass lens. Now they are like an eyeball crossed with rubber caps you put on a zoid model kit. Freaky. Plus a lot of the designs are just too weird. They looked normal. Now they are all over the place. Plus the enemies are more Team Rocket than a credible threat.

    Afraid they don't exist. Just not subject matter Japan really cares about to be honest. The only anime I can recall even having a German Sub is Black Lagoon episode 4.

    Watched Princess Principal: Crown Handler. If it wasn't for the prior knowledge about the 6-movie deal I would wish for a second season, but for now these will be the closest thing for that.

    I finished Ichigo Marshmallow last night. Other than my hate for Miu, I enjoyed this show in the end.

    Having finished it last year, I guess it's so so.
    Especially if the humor doesn't land on you.
    It was still fun though, before watching this I built some kits from the series so I got to see them in action which was always cool.

    Saw "Kenya Boy". If this wasn't Japanese I'd call it one of the whitest things I ever saw because my God it so awfully hilarious. It tried to be some sort of a jungle adventure and at the same time tries to be a trippy acid trip with many stuff happening without any sort of logic or explanation.

    In the past week, I watched the first few episodes of Cowboy Bebop and Attack on Titan. I like both. I wish I hadn't waited so long to check out Bebop...it's hilariously violent!

    I watched the Ichigo Marshmallow Encore last night and it was funny as usual.

    I am just wondering if anyone here reads Light Novels. I will post an image of my ever growing collection sometime.

    Finally something on the new Tokyo Mew Mew. I like the new designs but as usual need to get used to them in animation.

    I finished Nanoha StrikerS last night and it was pretty good. I just was not a fan of the newbies in the show.

    Just finished Food Wars season 2. Too bad Netflix or Hulu doesnt have season 3+. Debating if I wanna spend for another streaming platform (Crunchyroll) to watch it.

    Til then I just started watching How Heavy are the Dumbbells You Lift? on Funimation. We'll see how long I can last with the multiple 90-120 second ads during episodes. :/

    Im still missing a few :( . Wanted to complete it with the special editions but they're so expensive now. I bought all at Best Buy a few years ago but they were so sporadic (and some where at end caps not even close to the Anime section).

    I might just get the regular editions now just so I can complete it before they get even more expensive.

    I do have the complete DVD box sets (the first version) though.


    Where'd you find it if I may ask. Ive only looked at Amazon.
