weyrbunny May 29, 2014 Share May 29, 2014 (edited) This is a sequel to the Comparative Toons & Anime: What Are You Watching? thread on TWOP. I'm recreating it here, because the thread was invaluable for show recommendations, advance word on new cartoons or anime and comparative analysis. And because it was one of my favorite topics. So...here's a place to discuss the plethora of anime and toons available on DVD, streaming online, on demand, airing in Japan, showing on NickToons or Disney XD...you name it. Plus manga, cons, and Cartoon Network or Toonami news as it relates. When an anime is picked up by Toonami in 2-6 years after the DVD release, it can of course get its own forum. In the interim, let's consolidate the conversation here. I'll start. ------- I've been watching A Certain Magical Index on Funimation, and as of episode 14, I wouldn't recommend it. Initially I liked the characters and science vs. magic premise--it had me at "nun that bites"--but the execution is increasingly poor. There's so much exposition that I frequently just want characters to stop talking! There's so much exposition that hallways are exponentially longer on the way out of the building than on the way in, because characters need to infodump while running down the hallway. There's so much exposition...you get my point. I'm only still watching because I've heard that the sequel, A Certain Magical Scientific Railgun, is much better. I'm also watching Black Lagoon on Toonami, and I'm thinking of re-watching Hellsing when I get a moment. I've seen both before, and both are favorites.
