High school DxD is getting a 3rd season, as seeing as one of my Harem members is in this series, I am happy to see the "plot" of the new season. It does have a strong following and surprised that it did not get a third season sooner. I personally find it more enjoyable as I had more laughs and overall fun with this series that with Date a Live. I know I might upset some but Date A Live is such a over hyped series and I never really enjoyed. I dropped the second season about 3 episodes in. I do take the series for what it is, a harem anime with endowed females with a cheesy plot, so I do not expect much but the occasional laugh. Well on with the questions.

1. Have you ever watched an Anime show in one sitting? If so which?

2.Name a popular non-shounen anime that you hate.

3.Slice of life anime usually has a great list of shows to choose from, what are your top 3 of the genre?

4. How many shows during the season do you two actually watch? Are they all simulcast or shows you wanted to catch up on from a previous season?

Good evening gentlemen. I have a question in regards to Anime "Art". For the past couple of months I have been kicking around the idea of purchasing some Anime Art for decoration in my house but have yet to properly find what I am looking for. I am a 30 year old male and the I was never a fan of "wallscrolls", the most common form of anime artwork are sold in this form, and posters usually do not suite by tastes.

So I hoped that maybe you could point me in the right direction. The best that I could find were Anime "Cels" which are nice but maybe not what I completely had in mind. Maybe something similar to the "headers" on a webpage, ala Katanagatari one the site was using a while back. Well thanks for time.

Neowned asked a question that leads me to ask another question. I guess it's a kind of technical question. Neowned mentions animation cels. Are these available as collectibles? I was assuming that ink & paint has been done digitally for a couple decades now, but that doesn't rule out collectible art presented on acetate like on old school animation cel.

But here's my question. Is any of the animation (keys, in-betweens, etc) done on paper in the Anime industry?
Any insights on some of the nuts and bolts of these operations? (Broad question, I know)

Cool, appreciate you taking the time to answer some of our questions guys. I have another question. Why do the online streaming sites, specifically CruncyRoll, not offer access to Anime OVA's? They clearly have the rights to broadcast the series but is there a reason behind not having the rights to broadcast the OVA's?

I just find it odd having to go to a "non licensed" website to view an OVA. I know OVA's are not important to the overall story, but sometimes its nice to get a glimpse of a series world that you enjoyed, even if it is just 10 mins. Well thanks in advance guys.

I have found a site that has prints that I am looking for. Sorry I could not be more specific, but it was mainly due to me being a novice in Art styles and could not pinpoint exactly what I was looking for. I is actually a canvas style art. When I found a website offering me just what I was looking for :)

Here is a link of the first canvas that I am planning on buying once I come back from my friends bachelor party in Houston this weekend.

I will continue to look for more that catch my eye, but this one looks so good, I might just buy it so that way it will be waiting for me when I get back.
