Also, I hear the next episode is supposed to have Lady in it. I'm kinda interested to see how this whole thing plays out. I mean, it's supposed to have both Trish and Lady in it, so that could be interesting to see how those characters interact with one another.


It's. Awful.


What is the basis for this claim?

That it's awful, and it's based on Devil May Cry, which makes it more awful.

That evaluation was both witty and insightful. I wish to subscribe to your news letter.

I watched the first episode and it's about a demon whatever the excuse for thebishone is who is obsessed with strawberry ice cream and has his apartment kitted out with teddy bears and frills at the end by a bossy 10 year old? Sure there was the occassionally demon shooting but frankly I found there to be little to no plot apart from bishonen shoots things which explode in improbably ways.

Also as per your earlier post there's already been an anime about a tall red coat wearing guy who kills people with giant guns and we don't need another one that's based on a thinly premised capcom game.

Ah, okay. I still haven't been able to watch it for myself due to my father's sorry internet connection. Once I get home I'll give it a view ansd see what I think.

I have to agree that the actual Devil May Cry series really relied more on innovative gameplay than any deep story or plot. While I'm a huge fan of the games, I can imagine that it wouldn't translate to an anime very well. I'm hoping it'll pick up, though. I hear it's only supposed to be twelve episodes.

and then he gave me the whole 'but by downloading it you're hurting the animators and they wont get any money' speech.

and forget devil may cry they should be making a GOD HAND anime. it would be perfect. not that i dont like the devil may cry games (2 sucked though and i have yet to meet someone who defends it)

At least two, actually. Which reminds me, I've always wondered: is the main character in Hellsing a ripoff/homage to Trigun or vice-versa, or is it just a highly-improbably coincidence? (They both have circular yellow sunglasses, for chrissake).


I'd trust onion's opinion if I were you, as these types of licensed anime tend to range from "barely ok" to "horrible", statistically speaking.

Whenever anyone tries to make that argument with me I just crack them over the head with one of my weighty Ghost in the Shell: SAC box sets that were bought after downloading the entire seasons. If the irony doesn't convince them, the blunt trauma will.

Statistically speaking? The Xenosaga anime was horrible, but so was the game, so you really can't tell. The Disagea anime was great, and no shitty gameplay to ruin the story! :V Also the Star Ocean 2 anime was easily watchable, again based on an unplayable game by anyone with taste. Out of a tiny test group, we now have a stunning 2:1 in favour of the style!

woop woop

Also yeah :unsmith: everyone else, stop shitting up my thread. Go be retards in your own. :unsmith:

I've wondered about this myself...

As much as I know, Trigun's anime came out before Hellsing's. Also, I don'd remember if in any of these mangas there were actually colored pics.

Trigun still remains my favorite anime of all times.
And if you ask, Battle Angel Alita is my favorite manga.

See? You try and be nice, and it never works. I guess mine is based on opinion, and yours is based on actually being retarded, and that is why? Go read the OP if you've forgotten the purpose of the thread.

So far I'm seeing you whinefag about shows, but not review them! Feel free to review DMC, and then whinefag about it. And just so you know that the post wasn't originally aimed at you, but you've wormed your way into it. :unsmith:

Trigun still remains my favorite anime of all times.

Even if there were no coloured pages, the colour of Vash's coat is mentioned frequently within the story, since it's significant to his relationship with Rem.

And as much as I love the Trigun anime, the direction it took is utter shit compared to Maximum.

It was. It was a simple no-depth anime that made it so I didn't have to play through the awful fucking gameplay for Disagea to find out the storyline. It serves it's purpose, thus it is good.

:unsmith: People also think I'm an idiot for liking Kaze no Stigma, so I'm pretty okay with you not liking Disagea, since I'm pretty sure you like KoZ. We can be idiots together. :unsmith:

disgaea was fucking atrocious. they left out the charm of the game only to replace it with bad animation and jokes that weren't really funny. most of the orginal story was simply glazed over and GORDON was reduced to team rocket blasting off away. hell the only thing they got right was getting the same voice actors and using the music from the game

but then again i like the game so *shrug*. its a level grind sure but thats only if you want to unlock everything.

Just watched the first ep. of Claymore, and I feel like my intelligence had been insulted...
I won't bother with a full rant because it's not worth it, but I got the feeling that this show is a money making by-the-book replica of other animae. Aside from the hentai-ish atmosphere, you can see that the Claymore are fap fodder in white latex.
The characters are not interesting, nor even 'cool'.
The Claymore were supposed to be a mysterious organization, but I for one don't feel compelled to find out more about them.

If the Claymore REALLY were inhuman killing machines it would've been better.
If the animation was brighter maybe I could've seen some details aside from Clare's eyes (pretty as they are).

And one last thing: How come Raki is the only kid that isn't afraid from Claymore?
