so anyone watched this anime, was it good in it's time or was it completely overshadowed by Code Geass?
>>
>>101478079
It was good for what it was. Not too bad, but nothing too remarkable.I thought the ending was particularly enjoyable.
>>
>>101478590
i was wondering how good it was, but i never seen it discuss since i started browsing back in 08'. thanks anon, i guess i'll i give it a shot
>>
Bleach ripoff but still pretty good.
>>
>>101478771
Yea, it isn't really ever discussed here ever. Other than it's god tier OP that is. I'm assuming you came from the OP thread. Give it a chance, it's a fun show with some originality too it. One of the villains is pretty memorable, he's really gay.
>>
>>101478933
He's not gay, merely Fabulous!
>>
I thought it was reasonably enjoyable for what it was. More to the point, I'm sad it failed to garner any real fanbase and thus doomed its creator to milking Rurouni Kenshin for the rest of his career.
>>
>>101479035
Well, to be fair there isn't anything to discuss. It's over. I get that some shows have a large enough fan base to discuss shows more often, but you're right about it's small fan base. Not enough people to have any real conversation. Ohh well.
>>
>>101478933
actually i heard about this anime last week after seeing a thread on flame of recca and decided to look for similar ones.

i just finished flame of recca last week and it really had a very lackluster ending IMO so i decided to give this one a try
>>
>>101479266
Ohh. In that case feel free to check out this version of it's incredible OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBY8BrWt5QU&list=FLv5OmweCO0UER0CQnTkIUKA&index=145
If you don't want spoilers don't want the video or just don't watch it altogether.
Anyways, give it a go. Don't expect too much, but just remember to have fun while watching.
>>
>>101479482
Holy shit, ours sounds like shit compared to them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymVF7e0IZz4
Then again, it sounds like shit anyway
>>
>>101479811
I knew we covered the song, but I never bothered to seek it out. Now that I've listened to it I feel like I just watched my own child get cut into pieces. It sounds horrible. Ohh well, I guess they tried.
But yea, the Nips sounds godly compared to us. I'm fairly certain that they are trained singers though, so there's a reason they blow us out of the water. And, you know, they speak Japanese everyday
>>
>>101479482
compare to other shonen, that's a preety good OP
>>
>>101481056
The genre itself has been plagued with shit, but the shit shows occasionally come with good OPs. Bleach and Naruto specifically both have had some decent OPs in the past. I can't speak for anything recent though.
>>
is there actual romance in this? only encounter i've had with it is a doujin where the MC grows 3 dicks and the chick has to blow all of them
>>
>>101478079
Too shounen. Pretty boring really.

I watched it all the way through and nothing really stuck in my mind. So it's a bit bland.
>>
>>101484375
What the balls? I never bothered looking this up on sadpanda, I'm surprised theres anything even there for this series. I don't remember too much, but I think the two main characters do end up getting together

2006 was a strong year so it kinda felt under the radar, but the show still had a small following on /a/.

Pretty underrated, it's purposely silly and has great characters (MOON, Captai Bravo, motherfucking Papillon,...

What I loved about Papillon was that we was introduced as a serious enemy but then becomes a joke, and them shit gets real, but once you see his Homunculus form you think it's just another joke. But then he starts absorbing people through his hand. Then he's a joke then serious again and finally is the greatest rival in the history of anime.

Very good money.

I remember when this first watched this I listened to the OP who knows how many times. By far one of my favorite OPs of all time

It's a real shame there's no good Merchandise for this show...I've seen countless way shittier shows get countless figmas,nendos and scales.

Oh god this. I wanted to rewatch it the other day but the DVDs looked like shit.

Reminder that Papillon's outfit was made for him by his own grandfather.

Also, did you guys know that Tokiko has the same VA as Satsuki?

I liked it a lot.

It went straight to the point and continued until it gave a satisfying end.
>>
>>101486542
It already had hit a point it couldn't go further since the author knew it was going to end, I gotta say I loved what happened instead of it stretching into an endless battle shonen.

It's crazy how much a good romance can improve a shonen.
Probably because it's so fucking rare.
>>
>>101488208
Yeah, its normally tacked-on faux-romance that never really goes anywhere until a timeskip or epilogue when suddenly the two are married and have kids offscreen.
>>
>>
>>101488208
No harem or triangle shenanigans is really, really nice once in a while.

Okay, technically there was that other guy, but even then it wasn't really a love triangle.

Whenever a Busou Renkin thread shows up, its only ever about the main couple, Papillon, and sometimes Captain Bravo. I've never ever seen a thread who even so much as recognized that one dude who had the hots for the female lead. You know, the one with the ring-blade thing? Hell, now I can't even remember his name. I kinda remember the epilogue chapter of it and how fucking dejected he looked, seeing the main couple be lovesick idiots in front of everyone.

>>101489038
Err...Who? I seriously don't remember who you guys were referring to. No matter how I try I can't even recall such a character existing.

I enjoyed it. This is one instance where the anime was actually more enjoyable than the manga.

Why would it? Their audiences don't really overlap too much and this was a manga adaptation of a Shoune Jump property.

The first half of this was fucking amazing and I remember thinking it had the potential to become one of my favorites. Then the story took a massive shit to the point that I barely even finished watching because it was so awful by the end.

The best girl won.

I liked how this show maintained power levels pretty well. With the exception of Victor at a few points (who gets a pass because last boss), everybody felt strong without the need of some massive shift in power levels. Except for Gouta cause he's a weak ass fag who has only one full fight.
>>
I really need to rewatch this.
