Welcome to /a2k/!

This board is for the discussion of anime and manga from the aughts, 2000-2009. Discussion on media surrounding this (such as old flash games or websites) is also considered on topic. Enjoy!

Monster

I just finished watching it yesterday. It's somewhat slow, but the journey of the main characters was interesting to sit through and Johan is a magnificent villain. The ending was also kind of a surprise but satisfying

Shuffle

I've been watching this 2005 VN adaptation classic. Outside of the gimmick of the three dimensions coming together, which gives us some demon and god girls, it plays the harem tropes really straight, it probably invented some of them, but it manages to land it all well enough and not feel tired. That's something I've noticed about trend setting shows, even if a ton of shows copy them later the originals still manage to feel fresh. Sometimes the female characters in these shows can come off as way too big of doormats or cute/silly to the point of being awkward to me, especially in Key adaptations, but this manages to not take things too far in that regard. Not sure who best girl is yet. The art is generally pretty to look at. This era of anime design kind of resembles some of the appeal of those simple early 80s TV designs you would see in comedy shows like Sasuga Sarutobi or Urusei Yatsura, likely incredibly fun for the animators to draw and well suited for expressive motion in their simplicity. Which isn't quite lived up to here, unfortunately. The drawings are strong, and the motion is fine, but I would have hoped for more in the way of stand out charismatic character acting or something a bit more interesting in the odd action scenes that come up. There was a really nice rotation in episode 6 that caught my eye, but I think a bit more on the animation front would have elevated the show. The storyboards are strong most of the time .Naoyuki Kuzuya impressed me the most with his boards on episode 5, he had been active since the late 80s, and the veteran touches are very visible, lots of nice deep staging and good angles. The show also has a signature style of cut ins that are color coded for specific girls, which is a touch I always love, either in a restrained manner like this or the kind of wild stuff directors like Tomino do. I don't know if there are any Shuffle fans here, but who is best girl? Is the show going to surprise me? (though don't spoil it). Any other similar mid 00 Harems at a similar level of quality that don't get spoken of enough. I know this one was popular back in the day, but it seems to have faded into obscurity since then.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

Recently got around to watching it, and was pleasantly surprised to find myself loving it. Mystery was great, which was complimented by countryside setting. It really knows how to create tension and ambient atmosphere as it manage d to make me feel uneasy. I heard it's a VN adaptation and there is also a manga, so definitely going to check it out sometime in the future. What are you thoughts? Shion is the best girl.

I don't know why, but there's something about 16:9 anamorphic widescreen, 480i video on DVD that has a special charm. Do you know any good anime in this resolution?

Does Hellsing Ultimate count? It was released from 2006 to 2012. Or can we only talk about the episodes which were released before 2010?

Bee Train Thread

For the longest time I've been wanting to make a thread for Bee Train anime, so I've decided to finally get around to it. Kouchi Mashimo's "hospital for animators" is probably most well known for their "Girls With Guns" trilogy: Noir, Madlax, and El Cazador de la Bruja, but have several other lesser known series like Avenger, Tsubasa Chronicle, and the .hack series. Have you anons been watching any Bee Train anime lately? Do you have a favorite?
