    I love Future Diary too! It's the anime that really got me into watching anime. Yuno's too entertaining to watch. Love her!

    Future Diary adds more ideas to my project that I work on every year.

    I just finished watching Future Diary and I thought it was amazing. I like how it ended. Anime sometimes has really shitty endings so I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    Do you think Yuki had Stockholm Syndrome?

    Had to look up Stockholm Syndrome but it does sound about right. I mean every time he tried to stop dealing with her, she would either threaten to kill people or protect him while pointing out that he would be dead otherwise.. But I dunno. I think I'd have to watch the series again to really get it.

    Did you watch the OVA? Apparently that's the "true" ending... I prefer how things ended in the last episode, and in my mind that's the real ending of the story, but oh well. It was nice seeing the characters again in the OVA.

    That sounds like an abusive relationship to me.

    Yeah it was kind of an anti-romance.

    I didn't know there was an ova; have to check that out.

    The uncut version of the original Sailor Moon fascinates me. The more I watch, the more I realize that the DIC edits don't make any sense.

    I didn't grow up with CN, so I missed the Sailor Moon wave. Watched the first two seasons subbed but I couldn't get into it much.

    Trudging along on my Digimon Adventure podcast (and my Tri Vol 1 just came in the mail), but I've been meaning to watch more anime. I guess it's hard to find time as I get older.
    Thanks for taking the time to read my words.

    So I noticed this anime on Netflix called Blame. I'm a sucker for SF but I really don't want to sit through a two or three episodes to find that
    it's a cliche' 25 minutes of lameness...anyone watch it? Thoughts?

    I've read the manga and quite enjoyed it. I am not sure how closely the movie will adhere to the story(which is very slow and surreal)- it's on my watch list too- but I noticed that the animation style is significantly different from the manga style (Tsutomu Nihei drew Blame! in a very distinctive, 'fisheye' style). I assume the movie was made to capitalize on the success of his other work, Knights of Sidonia.

    Do you think Netflix is the future for anime?

    anime is the original reason i signed up for netflix. i joined in 2004...mostly because i was tired of going to Blockbuster then and only seeing Naruto, Bleach and DBZ on the shelves. i signed up for NF and discovered Lain, Elfen Lied, Puni Puni Poemy, Witchhunter Robin, Chobits, and all sorts of other anime.

    Hulu is if anything. All they need is more dubs to appeal to a broader audience and I personally think they could give crunchyroll a run for their money.

    I'm a huge anime fan. Still, I'm subscribed to Netflix, Crunchyroll, and Hulu and it is not enough. I sometimes get torrents of anime because there is simply no other way to find certain ones without spending a lot of money. For example, I'm watching right now Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, an anime from the 1980s, which you can't find on any of those sites. I don't think you can find anywhere honestly.

    I hate Hulu now, they won't let me sign in with my Facebook account anymore.

    We own the entire series on DVD, my husband bought it at a con some years ago. It may no longer be in print though. Great series, one of my favorite Gundams.

    I've only seen Wing, IBO, 00, and Unicorn.

    I found Saban Moon.

    I started Wing but couldn't get into it for some reason.

    Right now I'm watching My Hero Academia, which I think is really good despite going in reluctantly. I'm almost done with Zeta Gundam as well.

    ^That's about the same time in the episode I noticed it too. It's really well done.

    Finished AOT, but at this point in the story getting caught up with the most recent manga chapter is far more gratifying.

    Wrapped up Akame Ga Kill (Esdeath love!). I know the manga just ended, so interested in checking that out to see where it goes beyond the show.
