Maybe, depending of what shows you were watching right before TTGL, but Kamina is a carbon copy character with nothing unique or that much likable about himself. He is the hot blooded character who does everything without thinking, and his bravery is wasted ever since they learned the fusion, because their unit was a mobile Deus Ex Machina, aside from the moments Simon had emotional issues.

Talk about late reply, lol.

Probably not even a maybe, for me at least. I don't see many characters like him. So in some half-nostalgic sense I say he still fairly appeals to me.
I'd say just for being in a universe where people have been pushed to a struggle, it's kind of fun to watch him treat it as a game. Stupid? Yes but we've been over that.

I'm sure his bravery is what caused Team Dai Gurren to be made in the first place not to mention.
Spoiler:
That's why it was such a problem when he died, because he was the main inspiration for it and went pretty fast thanks to his stupidity. Simon had to balls up quick and learn to sustain the group. Even if as an icon or a memory, Kamina did some pretty good things, especially if he only lived for 8 episodes.

IGPX
In the year 2048, people are raving about a fighting race called “Immortal Grand Prix”, or IGPX in short, which is faster and more exciting than any of the existing motor sports. The phenomenon is so big that an entire city was built for the racing industry where competitions take place on a huge track. In the “Immortal Grand Prix,” two teams of three IG machines, high-tech humanoid mechs driven by humans, race at speeds greater than 400km/h. The teams make three laps of a 60 km course while intercepting the opponent as they vie for a first place finish. The best machine performance, the best pilots and the best teamwork are the only factors that can make them the winners.


I just got done watching all 26 episodes today, and it's fuggen great.

are we allowed to link to sites to watch these? I'm putting it in a spoiler just in case. (though I'm not sure what putting it in a spoiler would really do to help)
Spoiler:
watch it now. (subs and dubs available for most (if not all) episodes)

it is, I guess, minus the bounty-hunting storyline. all racing. and stuff surrounding the racers and their team. zero bounty hunting. But seriously, go watch it. there's either an actual race with the mechs or race-footage in each episode.

...meh. Sounds kinda generic. Redline's synopsis sounded more promising. And synopses suck.

Boku no Kyoukai.

Anyway I would like to, but I have other animes to be watching right now.

KnK is not on my list atm either because Tsukihime etc. etc.

EDIT: Wait I just realized something. Nale's hardly an anime enthusiast.

No I was kidding, it's not Boku no Kyoukai, it's Kara no Kyoukai.

As for the joke... well yeah, don't bother really.

I dunno how late I am to this but apparently Yume Nikki is getting an official manga, and a novel soon.

http://kissmanga.com/Manga/Yume-Nikki/Vol-001-Ch-001--The-beginning-of-the-dream?id=164889

Maybe we'll finally get a plausible explanation for what the hell has been going on.

This is the anime thread right? Good.

Because Wakfu is totally anime, despite being French. Totally.



And you should all watch it.

A little more information, and some links.

Wakfu's a series based of the universe of some fairly popular tactical MMOs by a french company. The main appeal of the games is the artstyle, so imagine how a TV series would look. It has an extremely rich setting and backstory that I'd recommend a read of, it's really interesting.

There are 2 'eras', Wakfu and Dofus (both have respective MMOs). Wakfu is set 2000 years after Dofus, and both have their own anime (Dofus only has the 1 season so far).

There's also a bunch of manga that explore side characters and shit.

Link to everything you'll ever need:
