what's the general consensus on this? I was always under the impression the main draw to the original series was the animation, and it seems incredibly flat in this one. Is it just me being gay or it the show shit?

I've only seen the first episode so far, but I find it meh. The story is okay but it so far just seems like a fairly conventional sci fi anime, it lacks a lot of the trippy visual elements that made the first one so fun and bizarre. Story wise it also seems to be playing it a bit safe too, just a standard "lonely bored character has her world shaken up by the arrival of some crazy new person" story. The first one was not just notable because of its visuals, it was the amount of depth it was able to squeeze into a 6 episode series. It's a great story about adolescence.

That said though I've only seen the first episode, I'll try to reserve judgement until I've seen the whole thing, but I kind of suspect I'll be disappointed. A lot of times when a sequel gets made a decade or more after the fact it's hard to find the same groove again, and I suspect that's what's happening here.

I like that they got The Pillows back to do the music again at least.

Potato Salad


"I like corm" may seem like a simple mistranslation however it is much more deeper than that. It shows that the like girl is intelligent enough to perceive hat the corn may actually may want to be called "corm". Now if this is the case this girl'so intellect is insanely high intellect as it shows that she has a deep connection to the world despite being so young. This could mean she is related to some of the greatest minds the world has ever known such as napoleon or even aristotle. If this is the case I say we allow this girl to blossom her already insane high IQ and make her ascend beyond what humanity can offer to her.


Digits don't lie.

>BH is OVA
I'm aware of that now, but was describing my reception at the time. My point is that while FMA was enjoyable, BH is evidently superior by my estimation, and that was evident even when I was new to anime.
A number of animes have done that, where amidst the popularity of the manga they'll license a spinoff-ish story based on the series, when people really just want the series.


I've only seen like the first two episodes of the original and all of BH. I didn't feel like the opening was rushed.
The rushed feeling might be because the original was slower, so you compare it to that.
"The FMA animation was created before the manga was finished, so the animators had to create their own story once they crossed a certain point since they weren't privy to how the manga's story would conclude."
And this is why anime shouldn't be created until the artist's workspeed is proven to be fast and steady.
Either they make up their own shitty story, or they just insert filler CONSTANTLY like Bleach and kill their own anime.
If a manga artist is consistent with their pace, and they make chapters at a rate that an anime can progress at nicely then it's fine.
Too many anime jump the gun and rush into things when there isn't enough data to know if the anime will "catch up" to the manga or not.


I watched it when it was fresh and fell in love with it.

A couple of years late they do a what I expected to be remake of a 10/10 series.
I was weird to have a different show. A different Greed in a different style a new story and new characters.
Plus all the heart-wrenching moments were changed.

It was just weird because it had to be measured against a 10/10 and was very different.

I watched the whole show but every other episode I asked myself "wait wasn't that different? what is going on? you remember this differently!"

completed and it was good but because I had all these images from FMA in my mind it was kind of weird


Very understandable. It's like playing a game series where they use the same character news every time but different personalities.
"This isn't the waifu I remember!"
Even if it's good, it's weird because you can't get over the original characters/story you were introduced to.


Same character names. God damn I need to wake up.

I need to see more mature anime that doesn't end with some kid blowing up entire cities in a fight with some bad guy. Not knociking that stuff, time and place for everything. Anyone know any anime that just tell good stories while being a little more level headed?

If you haven't seen mushishi I recommend
it because it's just chilled out ghost tales that are solved by a roaming sort of shamen. The music and artwork displayed is also beautiful.

Anyone else a fan of Rumiko Takahashi? Back in the early 2000s when Inuyasha was rabidly popular there was a lot of discussion of her, but you don't really hear as much about her these days. I get the impression a lot of younger fans aren't as familiar with her. She's known for doing extremely long-running stories that usually focus on romance and comedy, with the exception of Inuyasha and Mermaid Saga, which are somewhat darker works. In Japan she is regarded as one of the most significant manga authors in history.

Notable works include:
>Ranma 1/2
>Maison Ikkoku
>Urusei Yatsura
>Mermaid Saga

Currently running one is Rin-ne, which I am ridiculously far behind on.

I watched Ranma and Inuyasha at the time they were on TV in the west.

The first wasnt bad, but in retrospect I disagree with the general Tranny theme. I liked Inuyasha for a while, but i quickly realised that this show was kind of going nowhere and every episode was kind of the same. Also most of the male characters gave of gay vibes to me.

Maybe its just a personal dissconance with japanese culture or the fact that the creator of these shows was a woman, but i dont think they aged well.


I never really felt like the show was meant to be pro-tranny or even had anything to do with actual trannies. The premise is basically just "guy gets cursed and now turns into a woman every time he's splashed with water, comic mishaps ensue." He doesn't want to be a woman, he's not sexually attracted to men, and he spends most of the series trying to figure out a way to break the curse. It's just a comic device, I think you only see it as pro-tranny because of the way trannies are viewed in the US. Japan probably has some kind of stigma associated with actual trannies and fags but I don't think it's quite the same as it is here. I notice in some animes there are cross-dressing characters, but it's usually used for humor, like the male character will hit on the trap thinking it's a woman, then find out it's actually a man and be like "eew gross".

Also I don't really catch a gay vibe off Inuyasha, I think it's mostly just that a lot of anime characters tend to look the same, and male characters can sometimes be drawn as slightly effeminate looking, especially when being drawn by a woman. By that standard I think Clamp's male characters are much gayer looking.


I enjoyed Inuyasha I seen bits of it as a kid on Toonanmi and then watched it with my ex fiance. Tbh I have never finished it since the anime is just too damn long I got a few seasons in then stopped. I did love the Youkai stuff and the ancient japanese stuff it was just really fun to watch and the characters funny and likeable.


I think the word you are looking for is hermaphrodite


If you ever want to finish it, the last arc of the third season and the entire fourth season is filler so you could probably skip those episodes. The third season filler arc with the cat demons is decent but most of S4 is just shitty one shot episodes. Also the original series ends abruptly but they made a second series that is basically the last half of the manga condensed into a single 26 episode season where the pacing is much faster. All in all it's pretty decent, I'd seen other anime before I watched it but IY was the one that got me into anime as a hobby.

So here is the rules use this shitty site and get a power and then justify how you would lose to the character in the image. Your opponent will be gohan. You get 5 separate superpowers using this site. Also no cheating so if you get 4 crappy superpowers and you get an OP power. You have to use all 5 powers during the fight and no copping out with I won't use this 1 OP ability.

Biological manipulation is broken as fuck.


You got a superpower that lets you do anything that biology can do. I think it would be pretty difficult for you to lose.


eh. fairly standard fair, maybe more useful in daily life than in a fight against someone like goku. really depends on what it is, and i don't feel like using imagination
uh, just stand there until we're all bored? or at the extreme end maybe reflect back attacks
maybe could come in handy against someone without extrasensory abilities. pretty sure goku of all people could deal with that
could lead to some interesting stuff if you know what you're doing and have a good imagination. also depends on the weapon/if i can pick

bigger question is why am i fighting him? he seems like an ok dude

Counter the fact that you would immediately win.

Never heard of it, can you give a quick rundown?


A show about some guy who fights goblins. There is quite a bit of gore and porn and its really entertaining. That is about the entire manga so far. Would recommend you at least try it.
