Call me an old school mecha-head, but I'm eagerly awaiting the blu-ray release of Mobile Suit Gundam next month.

Really? There are so many shows I'm enjoying from this season. Perhaps because I enjoy a wide variety of anime genres. Here's my Spring anime watchlist:There just is not a lot that I'm interested in this season.
Rumiko Takahashi. The second season of the anime adaptation of her most recent manga, Kyoukai no Rinne, is currently airing.I just finished watching boxed set 1 of MAISON IKKOKU, which I had bought via e-Bay. I like the series, though it is not as interesting as INUYASHA or as funny as URUSEI YATSURA or RANMA; all of which were from the one female manga artist, whose name, I forgot.
I just got steered towards this show very recently by a friend. I must admit I was a little concerned after the first episode (tentacles & schoolgirls made an appearance 5 minutes in!) but stuck with it and after about 3-4 episodes I was hooked and speed-watched through the entire first series and as up through the second as I can be.Returning Shows I'm currently watching:
Shokugeki no Soma
Although If I was to include the returning shows, Shokogeki no Soma is still wins out. But I'm a chef by trade, so I'm biased.
It does tend to make you hungry while watching it!My husband loves to cook and after we watched the most recent episodes of Shokugeki no Soma he decided to make Karaage for the first time yesterday. It was really good!
That's a really intriguing piece of trivia thanks! The dishes did look well thought out, though I'm sure they wouldn't be put together quite so easily or well as the show makes out! It's interesting to see so many Western dishes and even some "Italian" chefs present too. A good nod to the much more international flavour ()which modern chefs have to learn to adopt and incorporate into their food, even when preparing Japanese dishes.Definitely tempted to do the same, it looked so delicious!
That's one of the great things about the show is how the food they are making is real food that you can reproduce. Yuki Morisaki is a Japanese chef who is collaborating with the author to create the manga -- she even published a recipe book based on the manga.
I recall those old HB shows every time ADULT SWIM runs HARVEY BIRDMAN, ATTY AT LAW. Though I do not remember seeing PP using a time machine.Peter Potamus - A 1960's Hanna Barbera cartoon, featuring the adventures of Peter the Hippo and his monkey buddy, named So-So. Their wacky episodes usually start off with the duo exploring the world in their balloon, and helping who they run into. In the second year of the series, Peter has a Time and Space Machine installed in the balloon, so Peter and So-So could travel anywhere and any time in the universe. For me, this classic cartoon series always entertains me and gets me laughing.
Hi Jeffbert.I recall those old HB shows every time ADULT SWIM runs HARVEY BIRDMAN, ATTY AT LAW. Though I do not remember seeing PP using a time machine.
Thanks, Starbeast! There it is, the time dial! Just give it a spin, who cares when we'll go!Hi Jeffbert.
I found a 1960's episode (Romeo & Juliet) for you, unfortunately it's not in English. But it shows his Time Machine at 44 seconds into the cartoon.
