Anime and Manga disscussion

Postby Bret » Fri Jul 23, 2010 8:42 pm

This is the continuation of the topic on the old board.

I'm going too say this now. Don't come into this thread saying "All anime suck" or something like that. IF you don't like the Subject of the topic DON"T POST. OK,now that I got that out Here's my recommendations.



Black Lagoon: This series is short,but awesome. There are 2 seasons. the first one is 12 episodes and I don't know how many the 2nd one is.


Sailor Moon: THis is a gem I use too watch when I was a kid. Everybody used too call it a "girly" show when I use too watch it. Mind you this was when I was in 4th or 5th grade. Come too think of it,I think thats when my perverted side started too show itself.


Blue Gender: This series was just weird. It's dark too from what I remember.


Outlaw Star: Another gem from my childhood. I was actually surprised after reading up on it that they showed this on Toonami during the day. It's just awesome all around.


Detective Conan/Case Closed: This is the reason I loathe Adult Swim. The show failed ,because they kept moving the shows time slot. Also the stupid dubbers made a mistake in one of the episodes that made some of the American audience not watch it. This show is in my Top 5 most Favorite Anime series.


Tenchi Muyo: Now that I think about it,both Sailor moon and this show is what caused my perverted side too show at a young age. This show is really crazy.It's a Harem Anime series.



Big O: This is probably what Bruce Wayne would be if batman didn't exist and there were Mechas exist. Norman just kicks ass too.


Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: THis series takes elements from FLCL. Which means it's crazy as heck.

This isn't all the ones I've seen. I just named the lesser ones I've seen.
I'm trying too watch lesser known anime.


just thought I would post my first post again too start things off.
Apparently SWTOR said that I can invite 25 people for a 7 day trial of the game. PM me if interested.

7 months clean of Anime. ....these anime VHS tapes are hard to give away.

I will admit Basilisk and Tenchi Muyo! are still mangas on my shelves.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is my favorite anime series, I'll start off with that.

Can I post the anime ships I support (mostly shoujo-ai/yuri pairs, 'cause I'm like that! :P )?

Yeah Tenchi Muyo! is a great series, the first OVA is my favorite. I have not seen Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari yet since I hear it takes place in the same Mulltiverse.

Nothing is stopping you.
Mai Hime
Mai Otome

VILE! HORRID! CRIIIIIIINGE!



Just joking, Arrow; although I seriously have a distaste for the Mai Dualogy. So very, very much. Because it's so girly and lacks action. Yeah. *calms down and walks away*

Two guesses as to what my favorite anime is. Hint: it ain't Pogeyman. Although I will say I was always a Pokeshipper.

The Digimon anime (Adventures-Tamer) are fun to watch. Tamer especially was great. And in the past, I watched Sailor Moon.

You are unimaginative. SapphirePearlShipping FTW.

I find the Mai shows to be very well-written. They are funny when need be and dramatic when need be. The music kicks ass.

And dude... no action!? In Mai Hime, there was plenty of it. In the first ten or so episodes, the girls fought ORPHANS every episodes. Then things got more serious with Miyu/Alyssa and were very action packed, kicking off to a dramatic climax. The show relaxed for episode 16... built up drama for episodes 17-19, and then exploded with action. There was a fight scene every episode: Akira vs. Nao, Midori vs. Nao, Akira vs. Mikoto (vs. Shiho, though this isn't found out 'till later), and Mai vs. Mikoto in episode 20, Shizuru pwning Nao in episode 21, Shizuru kicking Yukino and Haruka's ass in episode 23, Natsuki vs. Shizuru and Mai vs. Shiho in episode 25, and a very underwhelming climax. Though count me in as one of the few who loves how it ends. Yes, it's a cop-out, I don't care.

Truthfully, the action isn't the main draw for me. It's the characters and their relationships with each other. I loved the Mai/Takumi relationship, the Akira/Takumi relationship, the Mai/Mikoto relationship, the Mai/Natsuki relationship... the only characters I didn't care for were Tate and Shiho. They were really well-done. When shit goes down in episode 20, you realize the value of these characters as their bonds are tested and destroyed one-by-one. Takumi dies, Natsuki finds out the truth about her mother, Shizuru snaps, Mikoto and Mai are torn apart, Reito is revealed as the bad guy... and so forth. It's awesome stuff.

Mai Otome was a step down, I can admit that, but I still find it pretty entertaining.

I'm relatively new to the anime scene with my favorite sereis being Ghost in the Shell.

However, I may start watching more seeing as Marvel just announced the Iron Man, X-men, Blade, and Wolverine animes.

I think Im one of 11 people in the US to watch Beyblade Metal Fusion.

..and maybe one of 6 to actually buy one of the tops at Wal*Mart.

This anime has re-affirmed my anime-free lifestyle.

Akira is my favourite but Neon Genesis Evangelion is great too. I need to re-watch it. I've also seen End of Evangelion and the first Rebuild film.

Has anybody read Ichi the Killer? Is it even available in America?

My favorite Anime would have to be Ranma 1/2. No other Anime I have seen compares to it. It's truly a love comedy masterpiece, with plenty of action, humor, and, of course, fanservice. Second in line is Inuyasha, and third is Code Geass.

ANime's I've watched recently? Mai-hime, To Love Ru, and Akira... You just gotta love that theme Tetsuo has whenever he comes and wrecks the millitary apart...
You dare try to challenge me? Then we shall see how you fare against a true Archangel!

I actually don't watch as much anime as I should. My interest in it started up all over again at the beginning of last year.

Hellsing (Not a big fan of the original anime, but the OVAs are AMAZING)
Dragonball
Dragonball Z
Digimon Seasons 1,2 & 4
Cowboy Bebop
I've seen a fair amount of Outlaw Star and I thought that was good.
I started watching Gurren Lagann recently as well and I've been sucked into that.
Yu Yu Hakusho was pretty good, but I didn't watch it after the Dark Tournament.
And finally, I also started watching the original Guyver series, which I need to finish as well.

But the Hellsing Ultimate series is my favorite anime out there. I even cosplayed Walter at an anime convention earlier this year. I just think it's an insanely badass show.

Most of the battles lasted one or two minutes. :| The rest of the eps had sooooooooo much talking I thought I was going to die of boredom at several points.
very underwhelming climax. Though count me in as one of the few who loves how it ends. Yes, it's a cop-out, I don't care.

Actually I thought the ending was one of the only decent parts to ever make itself known (as in at all).
Mai Otome was a step down, I can admit that

I actually tolerated that one to an extent. Key word here is "tolerate"

As for the music it undoubtedly needed anima spiritia.

I apologize if I seem a little mean Arrow, these are simply the first two series I've ever considered to stop watching altogether.
Good to be back.
