Just thought I would share some of the stuff I'm currently watching:

Legend of the Galactic Heroes - I'm currently on ep 21 and it is really awesome so far. Lots of drama and really cool gigantic space battles. What more could you ask for? It was made 1988, which may put off some people but I didn't mind the old style of animation. Neither the anime nor the novels have been licensed, which makes me sad.

Macross - I'm on ep 10 and it is okay so far. kinda silly and predictable but still enjoyable. The battle scenes are very good for the time

Code Geass R2 - ep 2 aired a couple of days ago. There will be awesomeness.

Also I watched the first ep of the new Macross Frontier, it had some very nice CG and space battles. Wasn't so into the actual plot or characters. But the animation alone might be worth watching it.

This was shown at CJAS a while back, when I first started attending CJAS...before The Great JA Debacle. I couldn't quite get into it, since I started CJAS half way through the spring semester. From what I saw, though, it seemed like the time on screen seemed to move slower than realtime. Kinda like 24...except slower.

Man not being able to show unlicensed stuff is annoying. The show is really good, but at 110 eps I don't think it would really be good to show weekly. I didn't get the feeling things were moving really slowly at all. I guess this kind of show really depends on one's taste.

I saw ep 1 today. It was okay, but I really hate how there was pretty much no transition from Lelouch of the Rebellion. I will watch, but I suspect it will be kinda lame.

I've seen the first few eps of Mnemosyne. Mostly I watch it for- well, you know. If you thought Elfen Lied was too sexual/bloody... well, it's like watching Card Captor Sakura comparatively.

The next episode of Avatar comes out on Friday!!! OMG!!!

But really, nothing has captured my attention this season, so far...

ep 2 explains what happened between the break in seasons. I kinda liked how ep1 this season was just like ep1 first season.

I'll look into Mnemosyne.
I've read that kurenai is very good, I might check that out.

Oh is ep 314 of Avatar being aired?

The original Japanese subscribers must've had great patience; those eps were released over a period of 11 years. Imagine, a 2 month wait for each episode...

I've been watching Gundam00 stretching from last season. It's only barely watchable... like an uber-PC version of Gundam Wing (since terrorists are no longer cool).

When was this confirmed? I heard rumors that it would air, but no confirmations.

And currently I am watching Tales of Symphonia, Kurau, Polyphonica and Animal Crossing.

Well, there's always the DVD coming out in like two weeks. It has episodes 3.11-3.15 on it.

Hey everyone. :P Good to see the forum idea from like 5 years ago has finally happened, hehe.

I'm watching Code Geass R2, and that's about it.

Avatar was rumored to resume airing April 18th, because that's when it would have to start again to end right before the book comes out (which covers the finale). However, they are doubling up some episodes, and the finale may actually be 2 hours long, so it's pushed back some more.
