Is there a dub?

there should be, since it was broadcasted in US according to wikipedia, but can't find an online stream site for it, and among the torrents they're mostly subbed
 
 

I suggest Monster or Mushishi, to start with something known yet underrated

that's a good idea

 

Monster (74 episodes)
Mushishi (26 episodes)
 

74 episodes seems too many for first show to try... i've heard about both, never watched them, so they would be fine for me


 

City Hunter or Mushishi are both fine for me

for organized way, i mean setting a range of episodes and chapters to read/watch every week, or every two weeks, as to simulate a release scedule
that way everyone can comment and discuss the shows/series gradually, instead of having to watch them all in one go

to make an example/
-anime A is picked to be re-watched
-the discussion will start about the first 4 episodes
-every 2 weeks, the discussion will move on to the next 4 episodes, until the serie is over
(number of episodes/chapters to progress every time, and the time window=1week or 2weeks, can be decided everytime a new serie is started)


Yeah I don't mind since I'm already participating in the clubhouse for the seasonal shows anyway. Though my interest in this will depend on which series ends up getting selected of course.

Defintely Mushishi.....Both are fantastic but like you said, Monster is a bit too long

any preferences?

genres? what is better, already known series or not known series? are better recent series(last 10 years), or it's fine to go more way back?

 

 

guess so far we're going for mushishi as first serie

I don't really have any strong preference for a particular anime but off the top of my head there is Requiem for a Phantom, Spice and Wolf, Haibane Renmei, Steins Gate, Kokoro Connect, White Album 2, Another, Serial Experiments Lain, Eden of the East, Nana, Death Note, Shirobako, and of course Mushishi.  

Well I can do pretty much any genre except for mecha series; also what do you consider to be well known? Anything not on OMF's Top 100 anime? Either way I prefer to go with something that's not too obscure since those could easily end up being a flop. I would also suggest we don't do anything more than 2 cours since could become fatigued on a series like that (it's the only reason I wouldn't go with Monster).

We could do it like the Hurt / Heal game where each thread has a poll asking what the next anime to be re-watched should be. Or let a different member choose each time. :shrug:

ah no, for known, i was meaning series you've already watched vs series you didn't watch before, since there is an appeal in discovering new series too

 

polls definitely will be a good idea to have

Mushishi is underrated? Its sales isn't great like meta series but I'm sure it's pretty critically acclaimed. You know, like Oscar-winning movies

 

I want White Album 2. I have wanted to watch it for a long time but caught between a bunch of other manga/anime I never find the time or urge to.

Guys guys no, we gotta watch CCS.

 


White Album 2

 

My friend, you are in for one of the most heartwarming shows of the 2013 cycle.

 


Or let a different member choose each time.

 

In this format you could have: Someone puts up something they think no one else (but them) has bothered to watch, then we talk about that?

Would you boys be interested in this @Ace1225 @Blue22 @secretzfan @Oben @Kaidou @FrostyMouse @Vl731 and also @Frozen_Flare if you're still alive lol

 Sounds fun, depending on what we end up watching.

 

*Keeps reading*

 

Oh...Mushishi...I've heard of this. Didn't really interest me. But I suppose I can give it a shot if that's what everyone else wants to do.

I agree with the above. Also with your suggestions in general.
 
I really wish there was a way to message a group of members [1], because I want to ask you all for your top two recommendations that are at most 26 episodes (although personally I think 1 cour is enough for the first trial). Deadline this Friday for nominations, hold a poll over the weekend, and then start the next Monday?
 
My nominations: 
Sora no Woto
Mononoke
 
[1] Maybe I'll create a Discord server for that.

Wait, do we need to watch White Album to watch White Album 2?

 

White Album 2 (Or Uchouten Kazoku)

Ping Pong

It's bad or good? If bad, it helps you harden yourself. If good, who refuse a second chance? :D

Nah White Album is a complete stand alone story from WA2 so you're all good

 

WA2 is a pretty good anime, I just personally had issues with what happened in the last 2 eps but depending on where you stand during those final two eps, everyone's opinions will either be one way or the other 

 

EDIT: @DaEvilWithin Apart from Mushishi and Ping Pong (I still haven't gotten around to watching this) my two recommendations would be:

 

Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin - Not sure if this classifies as being "underrated" but it's certainly not mainstream and personally this is probably one of if not the realest anime I've ever seen and is imo one of Madhouse's best

 

Space Battleship Yamato 2199 - This one is a remake of a classic 70's anime of the same name and like Legend of the Galactic Heroes, this series defines the Japanese space opera/sci-fi genre to a tee

 

Both of these are 26 eps though.....Another one that's on my eye that I haven't seen yet (And is also highly praised) is Shinsekai Yori

sounds great

nominations:
- City Hunter '91 (season 4) (13 episodes) (never watched this)
- Katanagatari (12 episodes) (already watched this, but wouldn't mind rewatching it)
 
or if we go with only not-previously-seen shows, Aria The Origination(13 eps) in the place of Katanagatari

 

it also depends on the pace we'll use to watch the picked show, action shows could be watched faster, while mystery or story heavy series could be watched slower

 

 

 

 

let's have anyway a new thread to sort this all out, you wanted to manage the nominations? @DaEvilWithin

In my experience, the best thing to do with these kind of projects is to quickly decide on something and start watching, not wasting time with too many details
