I’m get back on the ‘Mysterious Girlfriend X’ anime…

so much mega-wat in this.


@ThatBootsGuy was

any good? I might binge it now that it is complete.


I like it because rather than the mechs being pew pew pew laser space robots a la Gundam they’re a little more realistic, at least as far as mechs go. They also aren’t the sole focus of the story, there’s more going on than a bunch of Zakus getting stomped by the MC.


It was ok. Episodes were only 15 minutes long and it seemed like a booze ad at times (much like the show it shared a slot with Dagashi Kashi 2 seemed like a candy ad at times). But there is a nice story to it (nothing really deep or super meaningful, mind you, but a cute story nonetheless).


Eh, I’d argue that Gundam is much more than that as well, honestly the when I think of memorable moments from the Gundam series it’s the mc’s mech smashing other mechs.


Oh, I know, I’ve watched just about every Gundam except the kiddy ones. Was more just saying that it’s different than Gundam. Or really even Macross or many other mecha anime.


Who here has also completed ancient Magus bride? Thoughts?


That finished?


Yup, March 25th.


Yeah first season wrapped up a couple weekends ago


Yes, I am a huge fan of the manga so I have a hard time being impartial but as an adaptation I totally loved it. The magic is never simplified or quantified so it always seems well magical.


In which case another thing that ended that i was saving to binge. I’ve got 2 shows now to binge yay


I finished it. It is amazing.


For dub watchers, here is Funimation’s simuldubs for Spring 2018:

  • Dances with the Dragons (Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru)
  • Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory
  • Golden Kamuy
  • High School DxD Hero
  • Kakuriyo -Bed & Breakfast for Spirits-
  • Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These
  • My Hero Academia Season 3
  • Space Battleship Tiramisu
  • Steins;Gate 0
  • Tokyo Ghoul:re

I’m at least going to watch the dub for Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These and Full Metal Panic!.


The last few episodes had me feeling like the symbolism was getting a bit over my head. I could tell I was missing something but it was difficult to tell what.

Regardless still very good.


More Full Metal Panic nice!


The show has layers to it. Like it has a sad hopeful undertone for the whole of the series to it.



I is sad.

Need to do less yarging and more paying soon now that I actually am not completely poor people.


I’ve upgraded my first post @TeckMonster
