I'm already geeking out for Digimon Adventure tri.

Fellow anime fans, how do you feel about character shipping/pairing them off into a couple?

The western Digimon fanbase is still ******** at the fact Yamato/Sora is canon. Even 4CHAN is very vocal about it. I swear, the majority of the western Digimon fanbase drank the Taiora Kool-Aid.

Meanwhile, I hope the original Japanese writers make Koushiro/Mimi canon too, especially when the Japanese fanbase love this pairing to the point even the original Japanese writers made a Drama CD with the pairing on focus.

Can't wait for Digimon! Sora & Matt is beast of a couple.

I started Pyscho-Pass earlier this week. I definitely do not watch series as fast as you guys do, only on episode 4, but this is one hell of an anime so far.

I enjoyed it. Have yet to see season 2 yet as I heard mixed things so I didn't make it a priority during the simulcast.

Edit: In regards to Psycho-Pass for below post

I blame Jeff Nimoy for NOT consulting with the original Japanese writers--specifically series director Hiroyuki Kakudou--about localizing the show.

Woo! A fellow Sorato fan! I hope the Japanese fans encourage the original Japanese writers to pair off Koushiro (Izzy) and Mimi as a canon couple.

Shippers got ******** why Tai x Sora didn't become canon. Even Kakudou found "main guy x main girl" to be cliché. Tai x Sora = cliché.

Well finally going to start FMAB tonight. I also thought about watching Psycho Pass since it's on Netflix as well.

Curious did you watch in dub or sub format? I am watching in sub (better of the two IMO) and the subtitles are like insanely hard level of reading. I consider myself an expert in subtitle reading and focusing on what's going on, but Psycho-Pass is on another level.

I would love to see Matt and Sora's relationship get closer in this new version, that would add another level to the story IMO. Gotta be honest, I don't think I care about Izzy (Koushiro) and Mimi that much.

I've had Psycho Pass laying around for a while but am only now inspired to watch it after seeing it (probably undeservedly) referenced on the Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? page on wikipedia.

I watched it subbed when it was coming out each week and eventually picked it up on Blu-ray. I didn't find too hard, I just liked the story and the world of it all. The only thing that I was disappointed about was the ending.

Sorato will stay canon, no matter what.

Koumi pairing has so much chemistry, to the point despite the lack of quantity of hints, they are all quality. Yeah, I hope during Digimon Adventure tri., Koushiro/Mimi and Taichi/Catherine both become canon, alongside Matt/Sora.

I'm going to out Takeru that he still has PTSD for losing Patamon back in 1999.

I watched 7 episodes of FMAB last night. pretty good so far. Episode 4 took a dark turn, what a crazy guy trying to keep his certification.

Anyone seen the 2nd season of Gunslinger Girl? Really liked the 1st one, and was thinking about buying the Complete Collection.

FMAB has been really good. I binged a billion episodes in two nights. Good thing I didn't have classes those two days and only have an exam on Friday. The show has been really picking and getting more and more interesting. It's hard to stop watching.

Finished FMAB. It was a really good show, had a balance of everything. Greed was probably my favourite character, 10/10 would wattch again.
