Anime


Since I picked a few DVDs from fleamarket today, I'd like to talk a bit about anime.
My rather small collection (pretty much all gathered from fleamarkets...) includes pieces from these franchises:

- Captain Harlock
- Devilman
- Silver Fang / Weed
- Berserk
- D*N*Angel
- Patlabor
- Trinity Blood
- Macross
- Adventure Kid
- Princess Mononoke

Not much anime has been shown here on TV besides Pokemon, Digimon and that sort (mind you, the first Digimon series was great, especially as it wasn't censored American version).
Fullmetal Alchemist, Neon Genesis Evangelion and some Dragon Ball, plus few random movies.

Re: Anime


We actually got quite some anime for adults on TV. One of the FTA channels airs Tokyo Ghoul, Highschool of the Dead, Akame ga kill... I haven't seen any of them though.

I don't dislike anime and watched quite a few (Pokemon, Digimon, Inuyasha, X, Death Note, Dragon Ball of course... but nowadays I just don't find the time to watch them.

Re: Anime


I don't think there's any anime shown on UK TV, other than Pokemon of course. At least not that I've ever noticed.

Speaking of which - I watched a new episode of Pokemon last week out of curiosity emoticon It was rubbish. Pretty much bother happened other than Team Rocket trying to steal everyone's Pokemon (they've been at that for like 20 years, isnt it about time they admitted defeat? emoticon) and then a battle that went on for too long with the Pokemon using the same moves over and over.

Was it always this bad and my mind is tricking me into thinking the original series was more entertaining, or have they finally run out of ideas and seemingly enthusiasm?

Re: Anime


I think the problem with Pokemon is that you can't evolve the franchise any further. All they can do is adding new Pokemon, new evolutions, new evolution items and that's something that gets harder every single time.

They did all the obvious Pokemon. Birds, dogs, fish, cats.. and you can add new cats, dogs and fish, but at one point it just seems like you're running out of ideas if you have another regular bird.

And then you have more creative versions... but again, you can do those just every so often before you get to trash bags, keys and ice cream cones. (And yeah, letters weren't so creative either.. but at one point it's just silly).

I think they added new villains on the TV show though... wasn't there something like Team Magma and Team Aqua or something like that? It freshes things up a little bit.

There's a ridiculous number of Pokemon now. Not like in our day when everyone knew them all and what order they came in the Pokedex emoticon And it was exciting when they revealed Mew and Mewtwo. Now they add bunches of new Pokemon every new game. No chance of catching 'em all anymore.
