In the crime-ridden, mafia-governed city of Ergastulum, Worick and Nicolas are two "handymen" known as "Benriya" who would take any dirty job from either police or mafia -- for a good price. After an assignment from police the two met and later joined by Alex, a former prostitute who got interested in the mysterious background of the team

Gangsta. is the adaptation of a seinen action manga by Kohske. It has an interesting gritty setting, but depending on how many similar things you've watched/read, it can feel a bit typical. Though it has a somewhat muddled start, the source material is solid and I'm expecting the anime to deliver the same quality. If nothing else it'll definitely satisfy your need for a mature action series.

The series started airing on July 1st and will be 12 episodes long.

This anime is awesome. I've already read the thirty-six chapters that are available online. I even got my sister watch it with me and she doesn't watch a lot of anime. She kept asking me about episode 5 because it was delayed.
The OP song is really good too, it's by Stereo Dive Foundation, it reminds me a bit of 3OH3.

21 Name: Panther : 2015-08-04 09:21 ID:nVATMk+Y [Del]

Oh, I really want to watch this show!

I'm fine with blood, but a bit squeamish with gore. Could anyone tell me if it's gory?

I mean like... intestines, torture... stuff like that.

22 Name: Rae : 2015-08-04 22:08 ID:sFfeRkJZ [Del]

Yea, it gets a bit bloody, but I wouldn't call it straight up gore. Most of the guys use guns or swords to kill people and there are a lot of dead bodies it's definitely not for the squeamish. Also there's prostitutes and drugs involved as well.

Hotarubi no Mori e (32)

Hotarubi no Mori e is a 45 minute long movie adaptation after the manga of the same name by Midorikawa Yuki, the author of Natsume Yuujinchou.

The story centers around Hotaru, a young girl, and Gin, a youkai she meets when she gets lost in a forest near her uncle's house as a child. It spans a number years and covers the time they spend with each other each summer.

It's a charming and very worthwhile little story, whether you're familiar with Midorikawa's other works or not. Gentle and melancholic, I recommend it to anyone who likes slice of life and/or the supernatural, but also to anyone else because why restrict it. It may also serve as a short appetizer course for the longer Natsume Yuujinchou series. It's less than one hour long, give it a try:)

its always so good and touching

31 Name: Neko_girl : 2015-08-04 13:05 ID:Z++n5KDQ [Del]

Yeah hotarubi no mori e may be good but I think this movie is really sad...I don't know.

toonami (282)

1 Name: ginger : 2011-09-18 01:18 ID:SiW8wIrQ [Del]

do you remember on friday nights watching dragon ball z, and samurai x, on toonami with tom and your buddies. was any one else sad when thay pulled the plug on it cuz i was nearly in tears watching tom fly in to the sun set. if it wasnt for toonami most of us wouldnt be here right now. am i right?

280 Name: LinkSeasonMaster : 2015-02-22 16:38 ID:87g13vD3 [Del]

Having Toonami back has been amazing. Sure, it's not exactly the same, be it time of airing, content, and maturity level. But it still has that same genuine passion and heart that made Toonami so amazing in the first place. I just wish I wasn't busy these days, otherwise, I'd be able to stay up for the whole thing and not just part of the block.

Toonami!!! (3)

I watched Toonami back in the late '90s. That's when the really good anime was on.

They've aired One Piece before, and Attack on Titan is on Netflix, so most people have already seen both all the way through.
I don't know the other shows you noted.

Back in the day, the real shizz was when Tonnami still aired stuff like The Big O and Wolf's Rain. That was before Adult Swim's anime block was a thing. If only they still had the same voice actor for Tom. I miss that old man.

Durarara!! (DRRR!!) (420)

Ryūgamine Mikado is a boy who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro. Masaomi has warned him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a champion fighter, an informant, and a mysterious gang called "Dollars." Nervous from Masaomi's stories, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city, the Headless Rider astride a black motorcycle.

From then on, the existence of supernatural cases and a gang called the Yellow Scarves will rise to the surface, and Ikebukuro will pushed to the breaking point.

Ah yes the show this website was inspired from! Durarara!! is an anime adaptation of the novel by the same name by Ryohgo Narita (also author of Baccano!). Its first season was 24 episodes long and first aired in 2010.

Its second season, Durarara!!x2, will be split into three cours. The first one titled "Shou" is scheduled for January 2015, the second one "Ten" is scheduled for July 2015 and the third "Ketsu" for January 2015 (see the kishoutenketsu narrative structure).

Please use this thread for all your DRRR!! needs and avoid making duplicates. If you wanna talk about the novel/manga check out this thread. Thank you!

>>1 OP welcome to the dollars, I am sorry to say this dude but this is the wrong area for this kind of post, this should have been in the *Introductions Board*.

This area is the *Animation Board*, and I suggest reading the thread on the main area called *Read This If You're New (V3)*

No Golden Time Thread? Really?

Banri Tada is a newly admitted student at a private law school in Tokyo. However, due to an accident, he lost all of his memories. During his freshman orientation, he encounters another freshman from the same school, Mitsuo Yanagisawa, and they hit it off at once. Without any memory of each other, their lives become more and more intertwined as if set by the hands of fate. But what is their fate, and will it lead to happiness or another memory to forget…

An awesome Romance/Comedy Anime in my opinion, specially for that ending, what do you guys think?

9 Name: Kynata Username !wtXZ9BJ1TI : 2015-08-04 02:17 ID:XPC9XEps [Del]

This was a good anime to watch, the only complaint that I have about it though would be that there was no good breather. Each episode just seemed like all they were doing was yelling. Other than that it was a good anime and good to watch. (Idk if it's just me or I don't know Romance genre anime that much)

10 Name: ShinAttha : 2015-08-04 21:39 ID:02WTXTiu [Del]

>>3 Oreimo is tagged as Seinen too, so that doesn't really say anything, since that show is just a guy intending to bone his sister(btw I liked that show)
Also, the problems Golden Time deals with seemed very distant to me, since I had no way to put myself in Banri's position.
Nonetheless, I loved this show, not only for the romance starting in the middle of the show instead of ending with it, but also for it's supporting characters. I desperately wanted to see more Bromance, but that's just a personal preference. The characters are lovable, and the story may be a bit melodramatic sometimes and is not really relateable, but I loved some arcs nonetheless.
On a side note, ToRaDoRa! was written bya the same author, despite that, it highlights the main characters much more than Golden Time and feels a little less realistic.

Serial Experiments Lain (7)

"Lain is an avant-garde anime influenced by philosophical subjects such as reality, identity, and communication. The series focuses on Lain Iwakura, an adolescent girl living in suburban Japan, and her introduction to the Wired, a global communications network similar to the Internet. Lain lives with her middle-class family, which consists of her inexpressive older sister Mika, her cold mother, and her computer-obsessed father. The first ripple on the pond of Lain's lonely life appears when she learns that girls from her school have received an e-mail from Chisa Yomoda, a schoolmate who committed suicide. When Lain receives the message at home, Chisa tells her (in real time) that she is not dead, but has just "abandoned the flesh", and has found God in the Wired. From then on, Lain is bound to a path which will take her ever deeper into both the network and her own thoughts." - wikipeda

has anybody else seen this? this is hands down one of the most fantastic animes I've ever watched. it's a little slow and since it came out in '98 it is a bit dated but it's easily one of my favorites.

5 Name: Emanon : 2013-02-07 22:53 ID:IoTij9gL [Del]

Haha I have seen it.And after all my years as an Otaku, this anime still is in the top 10 for me.

It is really interesting though, that the things that this anime say are nothing more than facts.

As the anime says Protocol 7 is none other than the Protocol of the internet which allows the human body to connect wit the internet.

The more interesting part is that Protocol 6 (which we are currently in, known and as IPv6)is said to end this year.Between 2012 and 2013.Serial Experiments Lain is not placed in a far away future as it seems.And watching Dennou Coil as well which has similarities with the above show the revolution of this state of the Internet has begun even with Google Glasses.

For the fans of this show I suggest Dennou Coil as well as Texhnolyze since it is from the same creators as the Serial Experiments Lain show.

I am really glad to see that people actually know it even though it is a retro anime.

6 Name: Quoillyx!RIeWTihAXk : 2015-08-01 23:19 ID:4shc2J8m [Del]

I haven't watched it yet, but plan to soon. I hope it's as great as everyone says. I also have to watch Texholyze.

7 Name: Leena !Uw.mzAFfos : 2015-08-02 21:51 ID:lmbUG9Zl [Del]

Oh my, I need to rewatch it. I watched it a few years ago, but I completely missed the entire point of the anime. Haha, wow. I hope I'll appreciate it more than when I watched it when I was more... annoying, 'le~!

In Steven Universe, the world is protected from evil by the Crystal Gems, a group of warriors who draw their power from special magic gem stones. The four Gems are Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl...and Steven! Steven is a boy who inherited a gemstone from his mother, a Crystal Gem named Rose Quartz. As Steven tries to figure out the secrets to using his gem, he spends his days in Beach City doing activities with the other Crystal Gems, whether it's helping them save the universe or just hanging out.

This cartoon is absolutely adorable, and yet it still manages to have a really well-written plot. Give it a watch if you haven't seen it!

Hataraku Maou-Sama! (21)

Because 2013 needed another demon-king/hero show.

Also known by its English title The Devil is a Part-Timer, Hataraku Maou-Sama! is a currently airing anime from the spring 2013 season, adapted from a light novel and manga and produced by White Fox (whose other anime works include Katanagatari, Steins;Gate, and Jormungand)

So Hataraku starts off with our main character The Demon King and his trusty general Alsiel retreating from a battle against his enemy Hero Emilia by transporting to a different dimension. This lands the two in modern-day Tokyo, and thus they have absolutely no knowledge whatsoever of Earth. After pulling some strings and adapting to the Japanese language and culture, our Demon King (who by then has changed his name to Maou Sadao and Alsiel's to Shirou Ashiya) starts working part-time at his local MgRonalds.

Yeah, it's not a crazy shounen action show. It's a silly comedy about Satan serving fast-food.

Towards the end of the first episode, it's revealed that the hero Emilia has also made it through the portal to Earth, and while she initially threatens to kill Maou, he talks her out of it...making it lulsy that the hero of the show is the crazy one out for blood. Well, to be fair, Maou has declared he would try and take over Japan or something while he's stuck on Earth. Rounding out the main cast is obligatory moe girl Chiho Sasaki who co-works with Maou and obviously has a crush on him.

Thanks for posting, and don't worry about the thread activity. A 2 month gap is nothing compared to some of these threads.

Episodes 11 and 12 will sate your desire for more action. Hope you enjoy the end of it. /o/

Thanks Yata! I just watched episode 10 and 11 and it leaves itself on a cliffhanger! I can't wait to watch the rest, and I hope the ending is good.


21 Name: PK : 2015-08-02 17:49 ID:mOH2I+RD [Del]

I absolutely love this show. I'm a bit late but it's still amazing. Interesting, funny, and great animation. I've heard people say season 2 confirmed, but I'm unsure.
