Interestingly, my Brother-in-law brought this show up yesterday. I figured I need to give it a go. He also said Kill la Kill gets better, but I dunno man. I'm trying to save the "good stuff" for when my wife is not watching... the other stuff she watches. So, I've been cruising around trying out whatever else has not been recommended here and elsewhere.
She's just. So damn weird. While watching Bleach: "This show looks dumb."
"Then don't fucking watch it."

"You're watching an episode without me!?
I have to run this mental list of what I'm allowed to watch without her and it's a hard list to keep up with. If we didn't have a kid now, I would totally find some weird-ass Hentai (redundant, I know) and put it on just to screw with her. I just want to watch some cartoons in peace woman!

It's pretty much an anime only Netflix and they're always getting new shows on there (They stream new shows as they're being show on TV in Japan). All the shows I mentioned above are on there and it's fairly cheap (Costs me about $6.50 CAD a month).
I'm honestly considering it at this point. My wife and niece are marathoning the goddamn Vampire Diaries in the living room and it's killing me inside, so I've been locking myself in my office and watching anything else.
I have finally sat down and started watching Bleach. It was one of those shows that people were talking about but that was right during my timeframe of "anime sucks now" so I gave it a pass, as I did for all anime at the time. Honestly, it's fairly solid. Could be better, could be a lot worse. But at least the English dub is passable, though I'm annoyed that with subtitles off, they don't translate the Japanese that scrolls across the screen. And it's a bit long on exposition and "do ho ho, you caught me monologuing you sly dog."
Oh well, can't have everything.
So... Gurran Lagan. I heard of this a few years back but I've just now given a few episodes a shot..... I'm at a loss. Do I double-down on my assertion that this kind of fanservice is bad or do I instantly fall in love with a busty red-head in a bikini and hot pants cornholing mecha with a .50 cal sniper-rifle while her boobs jiggle endlessly?
My wife (and some old girlfriends) have shot guns with me. And when they pull the trigger, pretty much everything jiggles. And it's hot.
So, I'm at a cross-roads here because God damn it! I am still a man. But I'm still not sold on the rest of the story. At least the animation is passable.
