    ...and what I'm looking forward to in 2013:

    Attack on Titan



    Series begins 4/7/13. An adaptation on the very popular manga about a space colony under attack from man-eating giants.

    Think Walking Dead, with 100-foot zombies.

    So...I was so curious about the source material for The Unlimited that I picked up the manga Zettai Karen Children....it's good. Very good.

    So rarely do you get something that mixes humor, action and drama so well...and though he main characters start as bratty 10 year olds,they age in real time. In addition, you have an apocalyptic vision of the future taking place when they turn 20, that becomes more like an axe over everyone's heads as the years go by. There are so many good twists in this, as attempts to change the future get more and more desperate.

    They're currently 5 years in, and I'm hooked to see what happens as the series gradually makes it to year ten.

    Stay away from season 2. Say far, far away from season 2....

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Darker than black is almost universally loved. Just don't get excited over season 2. It murdered the popularity of the series.

    I treat it like season 3 of Rurouni Kenshin. Better to stop after season 2 and pretend the 3rd one doesn't exist.

    BTW, if you're on netflix, check out Kaze no Stigma. It's very good, but the creator died shortly after beginning it, so there's nothing after season 1 to continue a decent storyline.

    The best anime on netflix by far is History's Strongest disciple Kenichi. One of those series that ended long before its time, but still gives you a satisfying conclusion.

    FYI, Here are some free Crunchyroll guest passes. Good for 48 hours once you activate them.

    You'll have to sign up for an account first, but there's no credit card necessary.

    http://www.crunchyroll.com/guest_pass?code=PUGH4DCBFDT - expires 4/2

    http://www.crunchyroll.com/guest_pass?code=96PEWDC5JQL - expires 5/2

    http://www.crunchyroll.com/guest_pass?code=XHUK3D9A79F - expires 6/2

    The Unlimited just finished up two nights ago. I strongly suggest checking it out.

    No idea if seasons are volumes. I'm on volume 3 episode 3. I'm still digging it. I'll see how it plays out.

    Crunchyroll is still in talks. Apparently the company that owns the rights refuses to sell them.

    Anime4psp.org is your friend. I go there for all the anime not supported by crunchy roll.

    so...that opening...

    (turn on CC if you want English subtitles)

    I can't get enough of this show. And we're still only 4 eps in.

    What, Kenichi is only 2 seasons? Looks like the anime series was cancelled. Can't find anything after the 2nd season. It was ok, so not completely disappointed.

    Nope.

    On the plus side, at least they wrapped season 2 up best they could. If you didn't know any better, you'd think that was the entire story.

    You'll understand why if you ever saw the original 1954 epic Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa, or it's American successor The Magnificent Seven.

    It's one of those shows that you really love, but you never ever want to watch twice.

    Basilisk is another great example of this.
