Thought it was about time we had our own anime thread, now I'm getting addicted to it I feel we need a dedicated area to go anime mad. Maybe we will find some more anime fans on here as well .... ANYBODY? Say hello!!!!!
Guess what's dropped through my letterbox - Ryan has told me I'm in for a visual treat in more ways than one!! Can't wait to start this one, and I noticed it's now almost doubled in price on Amazon so top bargain spotting there Casey, if you spot any other bargains like that do let me know!!!!
I'm starting to enjoy School Live more and more. Now I've cottoned on its jumping around in time with flashforwrds/flashbacks and I've got to piece together what goes where it's making sense and the zombies are making a regular appearance it's getting quite fun, and once you get to know the characters they grow on you - rather than being annoying and squeaky I've got a bit of a soft spot for over-enthusiastic easily distracted Yuki - she could be the anime equivalent of me!)
So once again, I'm getting addicted to an anime show, and can't wait for the next episode.
PS @caseyb1993 I know you've been waiting for an update, so episode 3 had no breakfast, but episode 4 they had ginger soy beef and rice. Subscribe to this topic for more breakfast updates delivered direct to your inbox!!!!
PPS I've even started picking up some Japanese words, like what senpai and -chan on names mean.
Looks like we have converted you then @Andy! 😄
See? Anime isn't that bad now is it? 😉
Next, we will turn you into a cosplayer! 😄
Google "L cosplay" and "Ryuk cosplay" and you will be amazed what people can do! 😮
That breakfast doesn't do it for me, I'm more tea and toast myself! 😄
Have you watched any H.S.O.T.D yet?
Aha oh yes I'll have to start saving up big time for cosplay, but I'm sure in the meantime Ryan will have a cupboard full of pink wigs he can lend me! 😉
Nope not started HSOTD yet, if there's one thing I've learned about anime it's you need to pay attention so I'll wait until after I've finished School Live, I think two anime shows at the same time would crash my brain!! 😉
PS £3.99 proper bargain wasn't it!!!
I recommend you add "Jigoku Shoujo" to your MAL. 🙂
It literally translates to "Hell Girl".
It is about a girl (duh) that sends bad souls to hell.
Another one of those " would you do it?" anime's as she gives a person a choice to send a tormentor to hell on the condition that when they die, they will go there too.... 😮
It has a different storyline for each episode. (Not too complicated so don't panic!)
This one is better subbed though. 🙂
@caseyb1993 Fabulous Casey-chan (see what I did there, I'm learning Japanese from watching School Live!!!) will add to my list which is already bulging at the seams with stuff waiting to be watched! Must sleep less to generate extra time to watch more.
When you say different storyline do you mean each episode is standalone, so I could just watch an odd episode here and there rather than having to watch the whole series for the plot arc? If so that sounds good, I'll see if it's on Crunchyroll or Funimation.
PS I quite like Crunchyroll, the ads aren't quite as bad as I thought, just wish they had some different ads, usually I just get the Crunchyroll promo repeated 5 times in a row ... "Get simulcasts airing one hour after Japan ... Anytime anywhere try premium!" ... I know it off by heart! 😄
@Andy I'll be looking forward to your updates on here for HSOTD 😉
@caseyb1993 That gif just made me burst out laughing..people here are staring at me haha. I don't care though I love him so much!
Oh and you guys don't want to see what's inside my cupboard..
Guess which one is mine?
(Or is it all 3? )

@Anonymous User NOOOOO!!!!
They must be all Google images, right?? You cannot possibly have any of those obsessively humongous tucked away in your spare bedroom?? Can you ....??
@caseyb1993 Back away now, we might have a live one here .... 😄
@Anonymous User Oh you little tease!! No, cmon really, I'm 99% sure you've picked them off Google but I always believe in innocent until proven guilty so there's still 1% of me thinking that could actually be your world-record breaking anime collection (with just a hint of your computer desk tucked away in the corner). I even tried to find the images on Google to prove you wrong, but all I could find was
(Definitely not your computer desk)
(Disturbing choice of full-length pillows) and
(Seriously, you call that an anime collection?!?)
so cmon Ryan tell us the truth was that your anime collection or not? It's a win-win for you, you've either fools me big time or I will have to call you Ryan-sensei from now on to acknowledge your mastery of all things anime!! 😄
@Andy Could you call me Ryan-Sensei anyway?
Alright alright those pictures aren't my actual collection haha, I keep the majority of my stuff on my HDD 😉
You've got me in the mood to build up a crazy collection though! Maybe I'll work on that next..
@caseyb1993 did you spot anything from Clannad in one of those pictures?
Well I think you should definitely start an anime collection, I've already begun mine which is already looking quite impressive, thanks to a couple of well placed accessories.
And yes, with your huge list of watched animes on MAL you can definitely be Ryan-sensei from now on.
Casey has way more knowledge than I do so I think she needs to be Casey-senpai
And I'm just the over excited easily distracted newbie destined to forever annoy with endless questions of the 'what do I watch next', 'who's that character' and 'what does that mean' nature, so just like Yuki (who is my current favourite anime character) I shall be Andy-chan!
Should have known I'd have to watch the whole series!! 🙂
If I watch your recommendation it's only right you watch mine, you must catch School Live, it's now my favourite anime of all time (bear in mind I've watched 2) ... I thought it was just a throwaway story at first but as new prices of the puzzle fit into place it's suddenly (ep6) dropped a huge bombshell and poor Yuki who was the annoying squeaky one to start with is now a little hero who you just want to give a big hug to and tell her it'll all be alright .... Nearly brought a tear to my eye (can't give spoilers away so you'll just have to watch). It's now turned into something really poignant and full of emotion, loving it!
@Andy See? Once you get past "oh it's a bleedin' school girl anime", alot of them have decent storylines. 😉
This is my favourite character ever,
His name is literally "Snake" from the anime Black Butler (3rd season). He isn't in it that much but he is such a lovable character the way he talks to his snakes.
Deal! (I'm buying a boxset that I have my eye on first though!) 🙂
@caseyb1993 Go me, I've recommended an anime to you, you'd better be adding it to MAL!!! 😉
I've seen Black Butler figures in Forbidden Planet, thought it was a video game character tho!
@caseyb1993 not been in the London one yet but I pop into the Manchester one when I'm visiting my sister, I love all the Pop Vinyls! I could easily max out my credit card in there!!
@Anonymous User @Andy Would you Adam and Eve it? NOW have an anime on Viceland!
Cowboy Bebop of all things! Finally, I get to watch it!
@caseyb1993 It's been there for ages, bit of a Viceland fan , me! Check out Aokigahara Suicide Forest and Witches in Romania while you're there. I've been meaning to watch Unicorn as well!
