    Mamoru Hosoda Movie Marathon

    Alright, at risk of being decapitated by @João Gomes for double posting, I've sat down and read the last few posts. I wanted some logical separation from my previous post to show the time skip :P It's amazing how polarising some things can be isn't it? I see people praising Summer Wars and I...

    Mamoru Hosoda Movie Marathon

    I'm hoping to swing back tomorrow and read the previous replies in a bit more detail, but for the moment I wanted to say that I couldn't finish Summer Wars when I tried it previously, which was a shame. I realised it just wasn't grabbing me, and the stupidity of having important infrastructure...

    So What's Your Avatar Pic?

    I've just seen episode 2 of this and I must say it's very good so far!

    Mamoru Hosoda Movie Marathon

    I've not rewatched it here as I saw it some months ago now, in truth I can only remember bits of it, but I do recall that I liked it and thought it was nicely produced, with an interesting story. At the time I will echo that I thought the same as you @D1tchd1gger - she had this power to change...

    I managed to get 6 of those from the art I've seen in the anime :)

    I have not seen it! :) Slice of Life/easy going is not my fav watch but I like one from time to time, I can't really stretch that list much beyond stuff like New Game. There were definitely some more I'd add in general as I'm missing stuff like Attack on Titan and Death Note here, along with...

    3x3 Thread

    Interesting thread, I've never made one of these before, I'm going to post three. The first one is a selection of some of my all time favs so far. The second one will be a list of some entertaining ones I've seen that don't make the cut of the first one, but are worth a watch based on...

    Simulwatch schedule and suggestions list

    I see what you did there! :) It's simple maths but at 3 episodes a day it's a whole years worth of watching... even if it's good, I'd only really consider it if I had more or less ran out of other things to watch I think. Probably not!

    Very true indeed Neil :)

    I've never seen One Piece and not sure I want to start, damn 1000 episode run would be like a mission to complete that!

    Sadly you've bumped into another one I've seen! :D I've been working my way kind of backwards through the KyoAni back catalogue, last ones I did were Clannad and Haruhi, I think I only have Air and Kanon left to try sometime, not being all that interested in male swimming which I think Free was...

    Simulwatch schedule and suggestions list

    If that goes ahead I'd join for watches on B&B and Mirai but I've seen the other 3 fairly recently :)

    It's so odd that I like the visuals on Yuasas work but the ones on Mob Psycho I can't get on with. I tried a bit more of MP 100 and it's gotten better. The first 2 episodes were kind of weak but it's improved as I've seen more of it, up to episode 8 now. The comedy for the most part isn't...

    For the request above I think it's more about not wanting to over-do things on my end as well, I'm just rolling through one thing after the next at the moment, so I had my plans in motion for the next thing already set. @D1tchd1gger mentioned the Hosoda films due to the upcoming release of...

    Happy to add that instead! I've only seen Fujiko Mine on the series so far. I could replace my Baccano one, I'll have a think :) Good question, the main one still runs and Neil still runs it, I've discussed with him before in PM as I don't want to consume all the simulwatch slots for what was...

    You can both respect and dislike someone at the same time for sure, X is a real idiot but gets the job done 🤣

    It's an interesting take on narcissism for sure, I think I find conceited personalities to be a trait I dislike in real life, people who think they are the best at something and are not afraid to say it aren't usually the type of people I get on with. I much prefer the opposite really, those...

    With Penguin Highway done, I next move onto a new series. Current thinking is to get some ideas down for what people want, then I'll post a vote on them once the choices are collated. For actual start date probably somewhere around the tail end of the month. This gives people time to chill a...

    Not actually seen Jin-Roh yet myself :) I didn't hate it or anything, hopefully my post made that reasonably clear, but neither could I pin it down and say it was good. I think I was ambivalent towards it, and my statement which Neil quoted of "visually strong but narratively weak" is...

    Penguin Highway 🐧 simulwatch [RS] (28/12 - 04/01)

    I need to do that sometime as well, it was one of the first anime movies I watched, I think I would have been better watching it after seeing some other KyoAni shows even if unrelated. For Liz I think I mentioned it to @Geriatric hedgehog but I would recommend not watching it at the same time...
