What is your favorite anime?

Post  Super Smash Bros. Fan on Sun Mar 28, 2010 6:47 pm

Mine would be Yu Yu Hakusho. It is an brillant anime, great visuals, great musics, fantastic fight scenes, and a story that can be easily followed. It's also relatively cheap. TehAnimatedGamer went out of his way to upload all 112 English episodes of Yu Yu Hakusho. Watch them while you can, you will not regret it.

YYH, huh? I've seen that!

I have the whole set on DVD when they released them 2 Discs and 14 episodes at a time.
Then the next year, they released them 28 episodes at a time, AND cheaper. Razz

Anyway, i enjoyed the series, even though the Dark Tournament was a little slow and
wound up running for like, HALF the series.

I personally think the Black Chapter Saga was the slowest one. There was always new opponents during the Dark Tournaments and something new happening to keep things fresh.

I've seen a little of Rurouni Kenshin on Toonami. Would you recommend it to me?

An agree and a disagree

Post  Adminassassin on Sun Mar 28, 2010 10:00 pm

I neve got into Rurouni Kenshin.
I will back the Code Geass recommendation all the way though. If only R2 (season 2) wasn't so darned expensive.

yes, watch the first 2 seasons of kenshin and watch all three episodes of samurai X (i'd recommend samurai x first if possible) also, geass R2 goes downhill in entertainment value, but it's worth it if you can watch it all Very Happy

My favorite is by far Fullmetal Alchemist, although S Cry Ed is up there too just for its general rediculousness and overall nostalgia.

I'm not a huge anime/manga fan, but I really enjoyed Azumanga Daioh, Fate/stay Night and Cowboy Bebop.

I haven't watched that many Anime's so it would have to be either Cowboy Bebop or Neon Genesis Evangelion. I've only really watched some of the more famous ones

I want to watch Neon Genesis Evangelion, but I really don't know where the episodes are. I'm hoping to see it anytime soon, it looks like an interesting concept.

You can find the episodes online on quite a few different sites. I would seriously recommend watching them, it's a brilliant series. I'm currently waiting on the Rebuild Movie Series.

I like Noir and Record of Lodoss War. Ranma 1/2 wasn't too bad in the first few seasons. Other than that, I probably haven't watched much else worth noting.

I still have to watch Evangelion, Escaflowne, and Yu Yu Hakusho... probably some other stuff, too.

You should defindently watch Yu Yu Hakusho as soon as possible. That show is just amazing. Look at TehAnimatedGamer for all the English episodes.

Noir <3

Post  soaring_wings on Wed Apr 07, 2010 9:47 pm

Noir was really good. I liked all of Bee Train's girls with guns series. The only thing I wish was a little better was the pacing. I though Noir was a bit too slow. Madlax and El Cazador de la Bruja had better pacing in my opinion.

Super Smash Bros. Fan, yes, I will definitely try to watch Yu Yu Hakusho then. I had another friend who said it was really amazing, and I only ever got a chance to watch a few episode on adult swim years ago.

soaring_wings, I watched the first few episodes of Madlax, and I really hope to start watching it again. I've heard good things about those two shows.

Thanks. I added you to BL too since I've seen you on there. Please feel free to leave recommendations on anything. I really appreciate it, especially for shows since I rarely have time to do research myself anymore. Once I have my PC, I'll start watching the anime that I haven't been able to finish.

Surprised
That really is a guilty pleasure. Razz
My guilty pleasure is josei romances Wink There are some really great ones where the girls aren't being forced into relationships (like some other types of anime/manga tongue) and the relationships are a tad more realistic than shoujo ones. I also like to read some cute innocent boy love and girl love from time to time. I've recently been getting more into those two (I totally recommend the manga, Asterisk for anyone who want to try out boy love. It has the cutest couple ever and the story is pretty good as well). Reverse harem used to be another guilty pleasure of mine, but I got annoyed by having mostly air headed female leads that would ruin the eye candy so I've started to avoid these.

I finished the first season of saiunkoku monogatari recently. I really enjoyed it. It was one of the few reverse harem anime that was actually quite good (probably because romance was secondary to character development). Main lead Shuurei was really a breath of fresh air in the current saturated moe anime. I only got mildly annoyed when a certain character could seduce Shuurei with ease, but she was so hostile to Ryuuki when he tried, which made her character a bit contradictory. I don't like when authors/directors do that because it messes up all the character development that they spend the last 20 episodes on. They did fix the mistake later, so I forgave them. Razz

I started watching the second season, and so far, it looks to be just as good. I wish I could read the light novels....
