    Man the Anime guild has stagnated a bit in the last few months. WTF! Oh well let me ask a few questions of our esteemed members. Has anyone heard any good buzz on any upcoming series or oavs?

    How does it relate to the rest of the gundam franchise? I haven't seen any Gundam so don't know if I will have to or if it is a stand alone story from the previous story arc.

    I think I've heard of it, but I haven't seen it at all

    Question: Are we talking about stuff that hasn't started in Japan yet or are we talking about stuff thats out in Japan but not anywhere else (aside from fansubs/fandubs)?

    I am out of the loop so fill me in on whatever sounds good to you.

    I have seen a few episodes of now and then. What I saw was ok. It didn't really grab me and make me want to watch the rest of the series but that may have been my mistake.

    The filler is what the animators in Japan do until there is enough manga to go back to the regular storyline again. The anime moves faster than the manga, so when it catches up they have to go off on some plotline that still seems plausible but doesn't change the characters tremendously in cas e tha mange contradicts any changes that could have been made.

    yay, this thread is exactly what we needed. Just a general anime chat, nice one herzog.

    As for the Gundam franchise. I've never been too great a fan, the series is overrated and the characters sort of annoy me, so I'm not particularly interested in their new one. Mind you, if it's more popular than Gundam Seed and Gundam Seed Destiny, then it's worth a watch.

    Gundam Seed was un-watcheble due to that pink headed idiot female, I thankfully can't even remember her name. Destiny was good, I rather enjoyed it.

    What about Full Metal Panic, isn't another season coming out? Have to say I really enjoyed the consept of a child warrior trying to fit into a normal school environment.

    Battle of Genesis is it a game? I have seen some art kicking around and then I looked up the artist and he is pretty damn good. My question is what is it?

    no, fleye? They spelt it different in each fansub. She's the idiot female that tries to seduce Kira into killing all the co-ordinators after they blow up her father. Have too say I rather respected Lacus, a really smart lady.
