I asked what you thought or if you would like me to change direction. I need to know early so you are not unhappy. Oh wait I think there is a problem. I may have forgotten to press send I will try again.
You know what's really funny and kinda creepy, every single time I start to actively consider watch/reading Code Geass I find a discussion that really goes into it and I feel like my feeble mind couldn't begin to comprehend all that goes on in there. So I make like a turtle and crawl back into the safety of my shell and hope to maybe on day brave the Gambit Pileup that seems to be Code Geass.
On a completely unrelated note...Sailor Moon or Wedding Peach. Likes, dislikes and reasoning. GO!
Actually, CG is REEEEEEEALLY easy to comprehend just to watch it. It's just that if you're a scholar of the Wisdom side rather than the Intelligence side (aka History, Politics, Ethics, Philosophy, Theology, Comprehension/Critical Thinking, Etc), you'll be able to interpret things in it that most people don't. THAT is where all those confusing discussions come from.
For example, CG is one of many works of SciFi (including Gundam 00) that use the Three World Powers concept - basically, the World is mostly ruled by three major powers - whether they consist of single nations, international alliances, or otherwise. Because of this, the direction of the world is based on those three powers.
I'm so excited about the next episode of HU Abridged. It comes out every Halloween... ALMOST HERE 0.0
Yeah Code Geass isn't exactly one of those "deep philosophical meanings of the human brain" by bare bones it's a mech-warfare series with ham that'll choke Shatner. Saying that though I really loved Code Geass. My personal preference is that I perfer the dub over the subs

I've never heard of Wedding Peach, so Sailor Moon is the winner by default :p I loved watching it years ago, and I'm planning on watching the reboot whenever it comes out. I don't remember much from the actual show, so I can't really give an in depth explanation about what I liked or disliked about the series. The only real gripe I can think of having with it now is "how do these people not know their secret identities, they have the same hairstyle and face o.o" Other than that, though, I was fine with it back in the day.
You know for a second there I thought you were asking to compare Peach Girl to Sailor Moon, and I was just like What? Good thing I reread that :p

Well now I'm intrigued. I've never heard of Lost Seven before, but I'll be adding that to my list soon (ish).
So, while we're on the topic of Mecha anime (sort of), has anyone seen Break Blade? It is an OVA series comprised of about 6 episodes (I think). I vaguely remember watching the first 2 (or was it 3) and wanted to know if anyone else had an opinion on it?
Also, I was thinking of adding Gintama to my to read/watch list. Has anyone here read/watched it? Opinions? I did try sitting through the first episode a long time ago, but I never finished it.
Basically the synopsis of Break Blade centers around this trio of adult friends (Each having gone their separate ways). One of whom, if I am remembering correctly, is deemed a misfit because he lacks the ability to use some sort of magical power (that everyone else in the world is able to use. Not to mention the whole town (and items) is powered by this power as well). He is also not able to pilot a mecha (which runs off of this power). Long story short, an old mecha (that doesn't run off of this power) is found, and he is the only one who is capable of powering it. It had something to do with a war going on between nations. I don't remember a wall, but then it has been a long time.

It's the same one. The impenetrable city with its impenetrable walls... It took up dozens of chapters and didn't show any sign of getting out of that arc. I got tired of it.
Continuing from Ari's art thread I've seen countless pics from this that makes me just jaw drop. I suggest reading it, they have many pics where it's under done, but they have many pages where it's just amazing http://www.mangapanda.com/girls-of-the-wilds/1
This reminds me of a manga that I meant to pick up a while ago (but completely forgot about). The name of it is Otoyomegatari, and the artwork that I've seen from some of the pages are stunning!
Here's the first page of it, I don't know what it is about (since I haven't read it yet) but I'll leave the little synopsis thing from mangareader
Set on the Silk Road that connected Asia wit Europe before the modern times. The story of Amira, a woman skilled in archery and horsemanship, sent to marry Karluk, a boy from another village who is 8 years younger than her. But all is not well, as her village decides to take her back...

The characters' bodies are shaped perfectly without any error every time. The angles created by the manhwaka (correct?) are done so well that they evoke the nature of the characters at just the right moments. This attention to detail causes the work to seem 3-dimensional all-throughout.
Also, Id (the character) is a trap. <3
But really, it's an amazing series. Great story and everything. As for the first pic, it uses colors in the way I talked about in Ari's thread and has perfect mastery over lines.
