I'm personally not very optimistic when it comes to live-action adaptations of comics and games.

I don't know. I mean Dragon Ball, Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Street Fighter and The Last Airbender were fantas.............

Ugh, even as a joke I can't finish that sentence.

I almost *never* watch adaptations of anime. Although that's perhaps hypocritical of me seeing almost all the anime I watch is an adaptation of a manga. I get very attached to the character designs and seiyuu though, most of the time it would be very weird seeing that story in live action.

BTW guys this season is amazing. There's so much good stuff it's pretty much consuming my entire non-working time.

Apparently, Yugi's deck would cost 150+ quid to recreate.

At least in Japan.

Currently watching Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai and enjoying it so far. These coming of age stories really hit me now that I'm 30.

My exams are over, which means binge-watching anime for a week, but I decided to focus on gaming instead.

Anyway, anime I've recently watched:

Ryuugujou Nanana's buried treasure - A ghost girl is bound to the room where she was killed and spends all day playing video games. She's so good at Virtua Fighter 5 that she can survive a match even after looking away from the screen! Oh, and she's hidden special treasures all over the island of her school and people have to solve puzzles to find them. And it's funny.

Seto no Hanayome - A schoolboy's saved by a mermaid and is then forced to marry her against his will and now his in-laws are constantly trying to kill him. It has certain elements I really don't like but is also absolutely hilarious.

Oda Nobuna's Ambition - The source of the "Stand Back or I'll Play a Justin Beiber Song" Meme. Started off promising and then it was like 'meh'. There were some interesting bits throughout, but overall I'm not sure if I liked it.

Samurai Champloo - It's well known how great this series is. Also, Mugen no Baseball beats Kuroko no Basuke IMO.

A couple of Mech anime that I dropped. Casshern Sins (also dropped).

Kimi to Boku - first season comical, second more geared towards romance.

Natsume Book of Friends - Currently on hold

Currently watching K-On and Naruto Fillerpuden. Reading Noblesse and a couple of Chinese Manhwa.

Also need to catch up on Ultimate Spiderman.

Also, Oxbox made an anime reference a couple weeks ago, when they said they weren't up to date with their anime and their ignorance level on the topic is "OVER 9000!!!"

Nanana's Buried Treasure is on my Crunchyroll queue! Hopefully I'll get around to it at some point, although it's very slow going. There's so much good stuff currently airing that I'm not having much luck clearing my backlog.

@Britpoint I still have 500+ series on my backlog. It may just take me years to clear it!

Finished Tari Tari today, really enjoyed it, definitely better than AnoHana. Yet again I'm getting reeled into the rom-coms. They're the perfect distraction from day-to-day responsibilities of being an adult. Open to suggestions...
