    Well this is hilarious. I can see the word in my quote but not displayed on the forums. Better edit that out in case Marleigh becomes active again :P

    Was flicking through the preowned section at EB/Gamestop and came across this:

    So I decided to look up the game footage on Youtube to see it's shockingly decent:

    So it would seem, but it's fugly looking and I'd rather not watch something i'll dislike.

    Just finished it. You have missed out. It's not just a great sports anime, but the narrative about the characters and how they develop is beautifully done.

    Do you guys know Slam dunk ?

    If you love Kuroko ( I do too) than you will absolutely love this manga Slam Dunk. The manga shines way above Kuroko and it makes me giggle like a girl every time I hear rumours of anime being released.

    Yes I do. The scene with Mitsui in episode 27 is incredible.

    It's fun, if you're a JoJo fan. But, honestly, it's a pretty average fighting game.

    New seasonals are up now. Oregairu to be subbed soon.

    Nisekois happened. A good day.

    I'm just assuming that's code for "it's weird and sexual"

    And your taste in visuals is blah!

    It is actually really well animated. The art is just fine as it is.

    Looking at gifs it's got dynamic camera angles, but the lines are rough as hell and the colors/shadows are awful. I'd sooner watch a slide show of glasslip stills with dialogue.

    Welp. It is really good. I definitely didn't have good feelings going into it, taking it at face value, but anyways.

    Just replaced MAL Updater with Taiga:
    http://taiga.erengy.com/

    Interface seems a lot more clean. Also the anime loli popping up at random to tell me messages and the sound effects were kinda awkward :lol:

    And it color codes stuff in my "plan to watch" as an alert that they're about to air. Makes keeping track of release dates a lot easier.

    My friend told me to install Taiga, but I stream most of the time. I know downloaded quality is better, but I watch too many shows to bother.

    Well I like it's simplicity. All you do is click arrows as you watch them, auto-update is a luxury for downloaders...but it's still a lot easier to manage it through a program:

    For downloaders it even syncs with my torrent client to give me a list of shows for DL when they're out.

    Is the difference in quality that great to warrant downloading? I feel like streaming is so much more convenient.

    Yes. Also great to be able to dump them on my iphone, USB or anthing for watching on the move.

    It is noticeably better and I do download some shows. I have Ping Pong, Little Busters, Katanagatari, Kara no Kyoukai, and Nana all downloaded right now. Of course, if you go on like the highest settings on some sites (1080p) then it is closer, but it is still not as good. @Kieran can back me up on this. I got him to download several shows lately and he can't appreciate streaming on sites like animefreak anymore.

    Started Durarara... seems a bit slow paced so far? Guessing it gets better though

    Yep. Season 2 is a lot more fast paced though....has a lot more in common with Baccano and it's more obvious the same guy wrote both.
