Aliens, Time Travelers, and Espers, Oh My! Answer our Haruhi poll!

 

In The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Haruhi is on the lookout for aliens, time travelers and espers to meet, play with, and overload the world with fun! These supernatural beings would be pretty cool to be friends with, but we’re curious—how many anime fans believe in these entities?

 

In commemoration of Haruhi’s return to home video next Monday (after being out of print for so long! get it here), answer our poll and let us know what you believe in—or if you’re a realist like Kyon who doesn’t really believe in anything supernatural.

Attack on Titan: The Movie Part 1

 

 

Movie Synopsis: 

When the Titans first attacked, life for mankind was forever changed. Fearing the massive man-eating humanoids, survivors constructed three enormous walls for protection. From that point on, humanity lived safely behind the walls—for the time being.

A century later, life is peaceful. Eren and his friends live inside the walls, yearning to explore beyond the borders they’ve always known. But the opportunity comes sooner than expected when a Colossal Titan appears above the wall. With a single kick the barricade is pierced, allowing a swarm of titans to pour in and devour their newly exposed prey. Witnessing the devastation, Eren and his friends vow to destroy the man-eating terrors.

The future looks bleak, but there’s more to Eren than meets the eye: he may be humanity’s last hope against extinction.

7. Ed kills Greed. This was a huge turning point for the story, when Ed realizes that he can actually defeat the homunculi. But it was also a huge turning point for Ed, when he realizes a moral gray area, killing Greed who may not have been 100% evil.

5. Roy Mustang kills Fuhrer Bradley. Literally seconds after he’s been stabbed in the chest. If that’s not [email protected]@$$ I don’t know what is.

4. Shou Tucker’s transmutation of his daughter, Nina. That’ll teach us to get too attached to loveable characters. Bring on the feels… and the memes.

2. Roy Mustang LOVES DOGS! Really, his whole speech is amazing. Almost as amazing as Hawkeye’s special form of housetraining…

1. Maes Hughes’ Funeral – one of the most devastating deaths in anime history. Between Elicia and Mustang’s reactions, it’s definitely starting to rain.
