      Finally got around to watching Code Geass and Tengen toppa gurren lagann. Will finish up bleach soon (forget where I left off, Aizen was still trapped in fire, and found out who #1 was), and few other things I downloaded a while ago but never watched.

      Revival, plus I invested in a 2-bay external drive (3TB-Raid 1) and a few months back started cloud backups through Crashplan for other files as well. Trying to get back into enjoying and watching Anime at home (consistently) when I get time on days off. (In the living room not on my PC, since I'm near completion of my home theater setup.)

      Currently or about to start watching these 2012 series. Some series that started in January 2012 I lost track and need to start over. I know others are watching or saw other series that ended. Give me some opinions. Thanks.

      So the Fall season is about four weeks or more in now on most series. What is everyone watching?

      http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/prev...he-fall-anime/

      http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anim...ght/2012/fall/


      ...and Initial D 5th Stage series started as well. It wasn't on the lists from Anime News Network.

      My Anime consumption has dropped drastically in the last few years....currently I am only watching Jormungand, Initial D 5th stage, and the once every forever Gundam Unicorn....I tried to get in to Eureka 7 AO, but not really grabbing me like the original did...

      Jormungand I like too, I read the story before it first aired, but watching it really brings you into the story. I'm trying to finish it so I can start watching season two. I'm enjoying Eureka 7 AO...it definitely has a different feel from the first series. I'm still watching series from 2011 and early 2012. I can't keep up all the time myself.

      I'll have a good two weekends in a row and then fall back yet again. Maybe Thanksgiving weekend I'll go into overload on everything.

      Yeah!!!!!!!!! My friend told me about the DBZ movie a few months ago. Looking forward to that. My son watches it too, so I should say we are looking forward to it.

      I think I've been thru just about everything Netflix has that's decent. Everything I've tried recently, I've quit after a few minutes in. It's amazing how much stuff doesn't even have a plot, just shots of panties mixed with explosions. There was some weird thing about witches and aliens during WW2 and none of the female characters had pants - what the hell?

      Personally I hated the last few years trend of "moe" girl or series pretty much dedicated to fan service.....the genres never did much for me so I really had not paid much attention to them. Nothing really offered much in terms of story or characters...

      Spoiler heavy, but considering it'll be next to forever until I can see this, I don't really care...at anyrate it sounds like nothing I was expecting....

      Going retro. Planning on hitting all of the Gundam series right from the start.

      Finished the original and am now on Zeta which in which the characters all seem way more prone to violent mood swings and are very slap (and punch happy).

      Elfen Lied
      Samurai Champloo
      Darker than Black
      Trigun
      Hellsing
      Full Metal Alchemist
      And some more I can't remember right now...

      I have seen the Eva 3.0 at this point, and man that was confusing....

      Also I think Initial D 5th Stage is over? No resolution to the other AE86 driven by another dis-interested young man. In general I did not enjoy this arc as much.

      any good anime with robots and or space battles simliar to gundam wing/ robotech??

      also when i was a kid my cousin had a japanese anime that had a lot of nude. it was like common girls who turned into ninjas or some type of super heroes, but the catch was it showed them getting naked in that transformation...anyone have any ideas??

      also when i was a kid their was a cartoon series that involved a kid and lots of robots and certain scenes turned 3d...

      I've been watching Space Battleship Yamato 2199. Pretty good reboot from the original. My first exposure to this was the Americanized version 'StarBlazers'. I still think they should have renamed Kodai Susumu to Derek Wildstar

      There were various Macross series through the years.

      http://kotaku.com/5990071/so-you-wan...here-to-start/

      Also try:
      Code Geass
      RahXephon (kinda wtf-ish...)
      Neon Genesis Evangelion (also wtf-ish)

      Bumping for fall season:

      Kill la Kill
      Coppelion
      Naruto Shippuden (time sunk fallacy, I don't actually enjoy it, but it keeps me out of trouble)

      And might as well include manga:

      Shingeki no Kyojin
      Naruto (again, time sunk--it's gotten so up its own ass with preachy messages, I just want to see it end already.)

      Not watching anything these days....waiting for the Gundam UC to end(this 1/2 year-1year per OVA episode format is such a drag). And most of the current series really has no inherit interest to me anymore...stylistically or subject matter...
