Re: Pant Thread (because we need more panting)

Just got denied for donating blood. I blame the unusual introduction of caffeine into my diet this morning. Having high blood pressure would just help fill the pint quicker anyway!

On the plus side, I feel very energetic.

Re: Anime Thread of Doom

Watch the movie Sword of the Stranger. It has great animation!

I haven't seen AOT yet, but one of my favorite anime is Welcome to the NHK. It's essentially a comedy/drama about depression.

Re: Anime Thread of Doom

I only saw an episode or two of each, but railgun seemed to be less 'serious'. Whereas the episode of Index I saw had the main character guy taking punishment while preaching about what it means to be a friend. Probably not a good episode to be introduced to.
