    Does anyone know of any new anime starting similar to Zankyou no Terror and/or Death Note? Not sure how they're categorised, probably psychological thriller?

    New anime? Nah. But Mirai Nikki (Future Diary in English) sounds like it fits into that category. It's probably five years old by now but it's extremely good.

    From what little I've seen of it, Mirai Nikki looks closer to Higruashi than Death Note and Terror in Resonance.

    I guess those two don't have much psychological stuff, more like thrillers with plenty of witty and clever things. Like a battle of brains rather than brawn.... still not sure how to properly categorise them.

    Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. That anime is on my watchlist. Hopefully I'll get round to watching it soon.

    Well I've not seen Death Note so I'm not sure; it just got very intense and there was an emphasis on suspense throughout the show. There was some "battle of the minds" going on but in a Battle Royale fashion. I hope you get to see it soon also, I think it stands out as a superbly good show (it also has what many consider the best portrayal of a "yandere" girl in anime if you're into that as well :tongue: ). It's the only show I ever watched in entirety in one 24-hour period, and one of only four that I own the entire collection of episodes from.

    I tend not to watch movies, but I may make an exception if we get to see Levi go crazy, even if it's only for a few seconds....

    I am looking forward to (and planning to watch) Season 2, though. Can't wait for 2016.

    3 of my favourite parts from TFS Abridged (which somehow makes DBZ actually enjoyable) epsode 47:

    #17: OK. Bug man from the future. Let's say I believe you; where do we go from here?

    Cell: Inside me.

    #17: Stop it!

    Piccolo: Well, he's basically a walking patry-dish of the galaxy's strongest fighters.

    Cell: Oh, tell him about the time I took an entire football team [or something like that].

    #17: Is that true?

    Piccolo: Yes.

    #17: But that still doesn't explain why he's here.

    Cell: You know, it's rude to talk about someone when they're standing right in front of you.

    #17: Okay... Why are you here?

    Cell: Because, 8!+(# . I drink people.

    Nail: So, you got any last moves you've been saving?

    Piccolo: Yeah.

    Nail: Really? Since When?

    Piccolo: About now-ish.

    Cell fails to absorb 16

    Cell: What the? What are you made of, pure metal?

    #16: Affirmative. I am android 16.

    Cell: Oh. Errors have been made.

    Sooo..... Can anyone explain the Higurashi no Koroni Kai ending? It appears as though a fully grown Rika is talking to Takano as a child, and somehow her childhood ends up changing... How is that possible? I thought time simply reset whenever she died. I'm pretty sure Time-travel wasn't invented. What's going on? Can anyone explain?

    In completely unrelated news, the Queen got killed on week 27 on my first attempt at Long Live The Queen.

    Now, on my second attempt, I'm at week 31 and the Queen is still alive.

    Pretty sure she's just a Princess... ;)

    You're doing all right. I didn't play it too much, I got her killed by a snake and killed by poison and then I kinda moved on to other things!

    Ah, so she is. I guess the title and the fact that she's already making all the decisions kind of made me forget she doesn't actually become Queen until she's survived the whole year.

    I've had a third attempt, survived 35 weeks this time. Now she's died from an arrow, poison and being hit by magic.

    I've heard Akame ga Kill is coming to Toonami in August. From what I've heard of it, it seems to be the type of anime that normally receives some pretty high quality dubbing, so I'm hopeful, but we won't know until it's actually aired.

    I had a dream last night where there was this weird crossover between the children's anime, Beyblade, and Pikes Peak Hillclimb in that the stadium was on the mountainside and cars could be seen racing up the mountain, only they were Rally cars rather than Hillclimb cars...

    There was also an attempted assassination shown in first person using a Borderlands style gun/RPG kinda thing. Apparently, the enemy was too strong to combat head on so Mr. Dickenson had hired the cameraman to destroy the Demolition Boys by any means necessary.

    Of course, the attempt failed because, apparently, a Nuke can be cancelled out easily by a Spinning Top. They even had the whole weird light and shocked character faces before the explosion sort of began but then quickly faded and I'm not sure how it all works but somehow nothing happened to anybody at all.

    Oh, and at some point there was the Doc Oc final boss battle from Spiderman 2 for PS2 - which, by the way, is the best game ever to have existed throughout the history of spiderman games - except with remastered graphics and a smaller and less dangerous environment/location.

    Ah, if only we'd make an anime version of DiRT Rally then! 
    I always thought rallying would be the perfect motorsport discipline for a romantic comedy anime.
    I would love to see a short rally anime, similar to Initial D :smiley: 
    It's funny you guys mention this because I'm actually working on an anime piece right now that's a mock poster/teaser for a rally-based anime. The genre I was looking to portray in my piece was almost along the lines of slice-of-life/magical girls (except no one is magical, of course - just very good at rally). I'll post a WIP when I get a little more done...
