If you're watching Attack on Titan, you probably also want to watch Attack on Titan Junior High

It's not on Crunchyroll!

Been on a big Haikyuu kick lately! Decided to store some of the fun fan stuff I've been consuming here. 

Big list of extra canon material:
 
List of translated Pixiv doujinshi:

I've known about this for a while, but now I've got an article to back it up: the average animator in Japan makes less than $10,000 US dollars (one million yen).

Time to stop using free streaming sites! I mostly watch on Crunchyroll nowadays anyway...

I take back every bad thing I said about Ace of Diamond! No wait, I don't. Protagonist boy Sawamura really is annoying for the first few episodes (if not more), but he is hilarious and pretty loveable later on. And the rest of the characters are great too. I think Miyuki is my favourite. I like how smart he is.

The show's humour reminds me of Slam Dunk, which is a good thing. :)

So my mom has finished watching all of Prince of Tennis (she didn't seem surprised at all by the ending) and she doesn't want to watch any of the OAVs because they don't really finish their story lines.

Can anyone rec another series for her to watch? 

She likes:
-silly, unrealistic stuff (eg: she likes Yowamushi Pedal and doesn't like Haikyuu) 
-finished series

As much as I would love to give her Slam Dunk, I think it would be too slow for her. :(  

[Edit] I forgot the mention that she has already seen Kuroko no Basket!

Been watching a lot of sports anime lately--though perhaps I shouldn't say "watching" when I've only been half paying attention to the animated high school boys running around and screaming on my TV screen.

From least recently to most recently watched: Free!, Eyeshield 21, Haikyuu, Diamond no Ace, Yowamushi Pedal, Ping Pong, Kuroko no Basket )



After bingeing on so much sports anime, I think what I really want is a series that deconstructs sports anime. A show that would expose the id of the shounen sports protagonist! That would reveal the consequences of maiming yourself for life (physically, mentally, academically) so you could get a measly high school trophy! The Evangelion of sports anime! Ha ha, come to think of it I would probably hate it.

I also really want to watch a female sports series one of these days. (At least Haikyuu acknowledges that a girls' team exists at the school.) I need to look up that girl tennis show I saw a bit of once...

So the Watsuki Nobuhiro has started an AU version of Rurouni Kenshin:

http://www.mangahere.com/manga/rurouni_kenshin_kinema_ban/c001/

Only two chapters so far. There's also an episode zero, but I haven't seen a translated version yet.

From what I hear, it's not the same story as the live-action movie version that was recently released.

I'm sure there are plenty of amazing and intelligent responses to this show on the internets, and I've started reading some of them, like [livejournal.com profile] canis_m's stuff over here

This is not one of those amazing and intelligent responses. SPOILERS! )

Actually, I do have some slightly intelligent things to say, including some comments on the feminist aspects of the show, such as they are, but those will be in another post.

Does anyone know any good, short Rurouni Kenshin fanfics that would be appropriate to give to a Gr. 10 ESL (English as a Second Language) student I'm tutoring? I'm trying to get him to read more in his free time. A humour fic would be nice, but other genres would be fine too, as long as the vocab/content isn't too difficult. His favourite character is Kenshin.

I watched the first fifteen or so episodes of Magic Knight Rayearth about fifteen years ago, making for a nice symmetry, yeah? But, alas, I couldn't get my hands on the rest of the series (I was watching fansubs borrowed from a cousin) and never finished watching it...until now!

Spoilery reactions... )

And now, the important question is...does anyone have any fic recs for MKR? I'm not looking for any characters or pairings in particular, I just want some well-written fic.

Hm, I should get my hands on the MKR manga one of these days.

Found these old LJ drafts I never posted. It was like, "hello, all this stuff written in the present tense is all past tense now." But I'm too lazy to change anything, so this entry is often in (temporally innaccurate) present tense.

My students, occasionally they were rather strange )
I know I have more of these partial write-ups sitting around, I just need to find them. :p

Gacked from [profile] issen4.

My top 10 animanga:
1. Hikaru no Go
2. Rurouni Kenshin
3. Slam Dunk
4. Ranma 1/2
5. Death Note
6. Yakitate! Japan
7. Slayers
8. Hunter x Hunter
9. Prince of Tennis
10. Azumanga Daioh


So I guess I'm a shounen kind of girl, aren't I?

Honourable mentions: Naruto, Kare Kano, Kodomo no Omocha, Trigun. Ah ha ha, there are no high-brow anime on this list.
