Flying loli catgirls who don't wear pants and act as fighter jets.

Oh Japan, what have you done?

Ahhh..I knew this day would come.
The day when anime would reach the bottom of decadency.
Well I pretty much knew it after seeing kanokon and that bastard of Kouta-kun...*grrrr*
The hell is that!!!
What happened with girls loving guys with beard or muscles or inteligent guys or cool guys.
NO! girls now love them shy and girl-faced with that "go-go-gomenasai!!" so characteristic of them.
RAAAA!!!!!! die !! die!!!
*pant* *pant*
Sorry I got out of topic.

Let's see...oh yeah that one sucks.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that the fact that Kouta came from the countryside had something to do with it as well. (Something about the scent of earth...*shrugs*)

Hahaha! Yeeah... it's funny because it's sadly true.... That's the main reason I couldn't really like Shingetsutan, that main-character is the typical "Oh! I suffer so-so-so muuuuuuuuuuch.... I want to kill myseeeeeelf to stop the paaaaaaaaaaaaaain! ;_;"! Goddammit! when did Japan started marketing whiny boys as something "likable"!!??

Beh... anyways, no, I dunno much about that magical loli-airplane anime. I just checked it out in wikipedia and the miasma thing seemed kinda interesting until I reached the part that says girls, sorry, lolis with metal-stuff on their legs and head fight "the bad guys". The character design pretty much convinced me of NOT watching it.

Beard, muscly, intelligent?? if you add old on it, then it would just be Asuna's (Mahou Sensei Negima) perfect dream guy... :lol:

Btw, those whiny boys that adored by all the girls.. it happens because it was intended for boys... Most japanese guys that watch it are whiny and no good for themselves anyway... so maybe it was made to convince them that, "you could hook up with girls by being whiny.." 8) Yeah, those poor otakus...

If you watched most shoujo anime, they still favor cool unrealistic boy to be the main chara.. so no worries there... Egh, remembered Moe Kare and Special A... XD

Back to topic.. about Strike Witches... i think it's not that bad... Erica was particularly kewt...

Seriously I just don't get it. I love loli. I love explosions. I love magic. I love bloomers. I love catgirls. I love cute shit. This anime has ALL of those things. Yet I just don't understand how they manage to fuck up so badly that I want to take out my 12gauge and splatter my brains across my bedroom wall. I really don't.


Ah well at least Antique Bakery kicks ass.

I think it's a funny concept to have all the girls go around in their panties (not to mention all the other moe elements), but... how can the show manage to be so utterly ordinary/boring/pointless? I don't even get an ecchi wibe from it tbh. :S

Well, on the bright side, at least GONZO's gonna go out of business soon (September, if I recall)

Guess this is what you get when you base an anime on a series of cute figurines?

What? there is still a second season for Shield of Uruk?
I thought all was over already.
I mean the ending was pretty good.
"DAmn!!"

Are you serious????????
Jil got betrayed by his brother, the person he likes, found out that the tower is only half way, and thrown to the bottom tower. THEN HE SAYS "ONE MORE TIME"
How you consider that an ending perplexes me.

I thought it was once of those series that have that kind of ending where the hero loses.
Like Evangelion or... what was the name again...Mushrambo? or something like that.

well, it's not set in stone yet.

They were supposed to Bankrupt in July, but the Tokyo Board of Commerce or w/e it was gave them an extended period (til September) to get their act together or get out of the industry forever.

Coulda seen this coming, though. I mean you can't just get away with years of producing crappy anime. Kinda sad, too, since every other animation studio is doing pretty well with their R1 DVD sales.
