Default Anime Thread for discussing/recommending anime and stuff

So, yeah, noticed there wasn't really an anime-centric thread around here, and I figured I can't be the only one here who watches the stuff, so here's a thread to talk about it. Or maybe there are some of you who want to try some, but don't know where to start. You could start here. I've seen a bunch, other people probably have as well. Also, since the Spring season is just starting, I guess this is as good a time as any to try to introduce a thread.



Contrary to popular belief, anime is not just robots and nurses and shit. Though it may, at any time, feature those things to a greater or lesser degree. Trying to explain it is essentially like trying to characterize the basic trends of movies or television in that it's so broad a medium that one can encounter nearly anything. Hell, I have (or rather, make that had) over 500 gigabytes of it at one point.

I dunno, I'm no good at making threads, and this one will probably die a horrible death, so just pop in and say what you're watching, planning to watch, have watched, ask for recommendations, lament the good old days, or tell me to go to hell. Bonus points for doing all of those at the same time.

Fullmetal Alchemist. Def. watch, and I'm watching the re-telling (Brotherhood) and it's great!

And not gonna lie, I'm watching Cardcaptor Sakura, which while long and kinda girly is pretty fun.

Yes, I agree, Brotherhood is great. I'm enjoying it far more than the original anime. But that's probably because it's more faithful to the manga storyline. Too bad it's almost over, though.

One of my favorites (and by that mean one of the few I've actually seen) Hajimo no Ippo or The Fighting Spirit I believe.

A post from me last year about a couple series I liked: http://www.gametavern.net/forums/sho...1&postcount=19

I watch anime in cycles. There will be 10 different series I'll be watching at a time and then nothing for a few years. Hard to find new stuff that interests me that I haven't seen done before. (Currently reading a manga series by the Death Note guys which explains why so much anime is homogeneous...at least those based on manga). Also the newer series are being released in torrent form in such high quality that my computer can't even handle them so now I watch stuff on instantz.net.

That being said I just started watching Noein yesterday. I'm only two eps in but it has some awesome action sequences.

This vid got me to check it out:

noein KeyFrame Animation
Uploaded by asanamatarou. - Click for more console and PC gaming videos.

And the most recent before this has been Eden of the East and Spice and Wolf.

Like I had mentioned I watched the first Rebuild of Eva movie. That was a great time, I can't wait for the rest of them to be finished. Sadly the Eva manga was put to a halt so Sadamoto could work on the third movie.

The Eva manga is never going to end

Have you checked out the retelling of Evangelion manga? It uses the same characters except they go to Catholic school and instead of piloting evas they have mystical weapons. Hmm, hasn't been updated in over a year,

That seems pretty interesting. I looked at the Eva manga, the romance one? It's sooooo stupid. hahaha

This? Didn't know that existed. I did stumble upon some Eva hentai a few years back. That was....interesting.

Yes! Angelic Days. Definitely bad. Very bad. I actually don't think I've seen anything else that Anno or Sadamoto have worked on as far as anime goes.

I think one of the two worked on Escaflowne? I think I dabbled in that in high school but I didn't stick with it.

Eva's one of those ones I've always been meaning to check out but just haven't gotten around to it. I think part of me feels there's no way it can be as good as people make it out to be.

It attracts certain people, and for some it sticks. Generally most people I know are very into it. I'd recommend watching it at least once.

I actually need to get the DVDs again which has me a little pissed. But I can get the new platinum collection. I bought the old box that fits all 7 full-sized DVD cases. Comes out cheaper than the platinum box set that doesn't have all the special booklets and stuff when you get them from Amazon.

No you don't. And it's a pretty awesome mindfuck too.
