South China Sea: Chinese new island land reclamation
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-35031313

Thoughts? What are the Chinese preparing for with all of this land reclamation and military expansion? Is this purely defensive? Or may this be leading to military action?

What Anime Should I Watch Next?
Not sure how much of webdip watches anime, but I may as well take recommendations. Currently my list of next to watch is (some may be abrreviated): Terror in Resonance, Rage of Bahamat: Genesis, Durarara!, The Mightiest Disciple, Seven Deadly Sins and Log Horizon. Also, please given reasons for any suggestions, whether they are on my list or not. Thanks.
Lethologica (203 D)
20 Dec 15 UTC
Presumably we are not in "Just go watch Cowboy Bebop" territory. Right?

Durarara! is high on my own plan-to-watch list, but I'll throw an anti-recommendation at The Mightiest Disciple after having read (most of) the manga as an endurance test; it gets kinda stale/formulaic.

Couple other general recs when I don't know what someone's watched/interested in: Ping Pong The Animation, Baccano!

For me the best is: Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex... not least because of the soundtrack which introduced me to the fantastic voice of Origa!

DBZ. Yuyu Hakushu. Rurouni Kenshin. Gundam Wing, or pretty much all of Gundam.

Naruto/Shippudden.

FAIRY TAIL
(Better than Naruto because it gets right into plot rather than spending episodes at a time on filler and the same damn flashbacks that have been shown 100s of times. It also doesn't take itself TOO seriously.)
Agreed Fairy Tail is better than Naruto.

But you NEED to watch Angel Beats! God, that one gave me the feels. Excellent, excellent work. Bring tissues.

Charlotte was made by the same studio. It was OK in comparison, but I wouldn't put it up as highly.

If you want a typical harem anime, The World God Only Knows puts a pretty interesting twist on the usual schtick.

Then there's the usual SAO plug. Just watch the first half of it though. Second arc sucks. Is it OK to pick up girls in a dungeon has a better take on the genre, imo.
Lethologica (203 D)
20 Dec 15 UTC
Valis is extremely disappointed that you haven't watched any of the Ghost in the Shell franchise. That's not necessarily a reason to watch it (:P), but it's generally considered the class of the SF genre among anime, which seems to be a genre you like. Personally, I find the first movie excellent and Stand Alone Complex solid-but-not-amazing--certainly I'd recommend anything in the franchise to someone who liked Psycho-Pass and Steins;Gate.

For similar reasons, Serial Experiments Lain. Whereas the other shows I've mentioned so far mix concept SF with action, Lain is pure psychological SF. Lots going on beneath the surface, but prepare to be confused for a good while.

Since you're watching One Punch Man, I'll throw in a Hunter x Hunter recommendation; like OPM, it comes at the shounen fighter genre sideways, but takes its subversion a little more seriously than OPM's pure comedic parody. By the same guy who did Yu Yu Hakusho, which did a great job of playing straight most of the tropes HxH subverts.

Still recommend Ping Pong The Animation, it's an excellent show and it's adjacent to genres you watch.

Second Chaqa's Rurouni Kenshin recommendation--by which I mean, watch episodes 1-62 unless that's too many episodes, and *definitely* watch the Trust and Betrayal OVA, which is Kenshin's backstory. The latter third of RK is filler hell, which you can skip. *Do not* watch the Reflections OVA, it is terrible. The animation of the show proper is a little dated, but story/characters are solid and I particularly like how it gives a palpable sense of early Meiji-era Japan. Trust and Betrayal is better-animated and more tightly focused on Kenshin himself.

One more: Darker Than Black is SF with supernatural elements, solid action, distinctive characters.

Also, bouncing off goldfinger's Angel Beats mention, I highly recommend Haibane Renmei. Similar base concept, but IMO better drama and less trope-y.

*waggles hand* at SAO. Has maybe five good episodes, but they're all in the first dozen episodes so there's no harm in starting it. But as goldfinger says, avoid the second half.

Last one for now, I promise: if you liked Bebop, you'll like Samurai Champloo. I think Champloo is more appealing, personally.

(Wait--I see you've already encountered Champloo. My mistake.)

Oh yeah. I also watched Angel Beats. It had a few cool concepts, but I honestly felt it was too rushed. Maybe I didn't watch it closely enough to fully appreciate it.

Death Note starts off really strong as a mind game between a criminal and a detective basically. It gets a bit weaker near the end, where it rushes through the manga and cuts out a lot of things. And I like the ending in the manga a lot more than the anime, but the first two thirds are really entertaining at least.
Durga (2658 D)
20 Dec 15 UTC
I'm watching Lain right now. A better Lain is definitely Paranoia Agent, check that out too. I can post a more extensive recommendation list tomorrow when its not 3am.

My forte is definitely psychological or samurai anime though.
Yeah, Angel Beats would've been a good 16 episode anime. Same deal with Charlotte

Personally one of my favorites is Phyco Pass. It is placed in a dystopian Japan world. The main protagonist is a police officer and as the story progresses it turns into a grey vs. grey morality. Main genres are: Crime, Drama, Pgycological. It is quite dark for an anime.

Can I just say--instead of watching SAO, watch SAO Abridged. The parody is significantly better than the original, IMO--though I doubt it'll be able to salvage episodes 15-25.

Created a new webdiplomacy.net app for the smartphone

Its really simple, anytime you join a live gunboat, you set an alarm and it reminds you "hey dumbass you joined a gunboat". Then you play that gunboat from anywhere on this amazing thing called a web browser. It comes standard on most phones and its really cool.
I get live updates straight to my phone anytime on webdip by just refreshing the page. You can download this free app simply by going to www.webdiplomacy,net and logging in on your phone!
