Anime

Recommended Posts

I've always watched anime, but since last Summer I've been watching as many as possible and it has been an interesting hobby.

So, which are your favorite?

Some of the good ones I've watched in the past 10 months:

- Attack on Titan

- Tokyo Ghoul

- Shiki

- Seven Deadly Sins

- Bungo Stray Dogs

- Is it Wrong to Try To Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

- Angel Beats! (That final episode will punch you in the gut)

- Deadman Wonderland 

- Demon Slayer

I want to try and re-watch some of the classics, like Rurouni Kenshin, Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball.

Some of my favorites (and some are already in the list above)

  • Neon-Genesis Evangelion
  • Gundam Wing : Endless Waltz / Pretty much any Mobile Suit Gundam series they have such weird political themes and couple that with characters that pilot even nicer mecha.
  • Robotech / Macross
  • Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Ergo Proxy
  • Princess Mononoke
  • Your Name
  • Akira
  • Ninja Scroll (The gore in this...)
  • Wolf Children
  • Code Geass
  • Haja Taisei Dangaiou (Must watch if you like mecha anime)
  • Mazinger series
  • Graveyard of the Fireflies

Lots more too just cant remember them all and put them in here. The older the anime the better they tend to be because of the way they are drawn and the themes covered.

I don't know if it's Anime or Manga but I really enjoyed the Appleseed films, The opening sequence is just fantastic... 

Quite a lot of good animated films out there... If we are just talking Anime though I couldn't tell you which is what etc..

Its anime too just a different creative design thats all. I saw some clips of the new Ghost in the Shell and thought it wasn't all that great because part of the joy of anime for me is not having it too lifelike which is the direction they are going in now.

If we're adding anime movies, then besides those you have named, I'll add My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away. The later being the best animated movie for me.

8 episodes in and Samurai X remains as awesome as I remembered it.

Princess Mononoke & Spirited Away are another level when it comes to anime films. I also love My Neighbour Totoro & Kiki’s Delivery Service.

Will watch a series every now and then, most are pretty bad. Legend of the Galactic Heroes was something else though.

My exposure to Anime is only restricted to movies most of which belong to Studio Ghibli, and my favourite is Princess Mononoke. Though I have lots of love for rest of their movies.

Beyond that I have only watched Akira and loved it.

Also, Your Name the 2016 flick was a highly enjoyable romantic, anime flick.

I do want to watch Attack on Titan. Have heard good things about it.

Watched some of this shit as a kid, and in my early 20s

As a child
Dragon ball z. What a show. Power THAT SHIT UP FOR 5 EPISODES ITS ALL ABOUT THE ANTICIPATION.
Bleach. First 3 seasons I actually re watched in my 20s. Excellent arc. The rest can fuck off
Full metal alchemist brotherhood. Mad bars. Bad ending
Pokemon. Gay. I need the character to actually earn and achieve things if I'm to vicariously live through him
YuGiHo. Ehhhhh. Kid me liked it
Naruto. Rock lee vs Gara MY MAN. MY GUY. MY DUDE. I was pumped. 

As a 21 year old
Attack on titan. Not behd. lots of screaming though, shut the fuck up every so often and people would make less fun of the medium
Death Note. The first arc is great. then some shitty blonde bitch ruins things a bit, then a bunch of business men have the fycking thing. Who thought that'd be good tv? great for 10 episodes though
Psycho pass. Excellent first season imo
Full metal alchemist. Not sure which is better, this is darker and less power of friendship, but the ending of both is unsatisfying 
Tokyo Ghoul. Cool for about 2 episodes. who the fuck wants to watch a show about the GAYEST CANNIBALS POSSIBLE DRINKING COFFEE ALL THE FUCKING TIME? Not this hombre. 
Fairy Tail. Not sure how I managed to watch 2 full seasons or so of this shite, one of those so bad it's good gigs maybe, or perhaps the 1 funny joke per episode kept me going, fuck knows its what keeps Brooklyn 99 going.

The Frieza saga. Vegeta is like vin diesel in pitch black. Who was he gonna kill next? Nameks, bad guys, me? Who knows. 
So satisfying

That is such a cliche answer, but tbh anyone who doesn't say Frieza is wrong. It was what the entire show lead up to til then.

This right here is why I think Death Note is overrated because as you said, they just lose the plot from a writing perspective. Starts out so well too, shame really.

First handful of episodes are some of the best TV I've ever seen. Then it just creeps downhill

Did you ever happen to watch the TV adaptation that they did for it? I believe Willem Dafoe is in it.

Rewatched that a few years back for nostalgia, but Dragon Ball Kai, which cuts all the shit that wasn't in the manga and removes all the filler. Cuts over 130 episodes, it is like uncut cocaine, it is somehow 10 times better. Of course though, the fucking show started on Cheez TV when school was about to start, but then again my hometown lost Channel 10 around 2000 because lol fuck repairing the tower.

I dislike how fast paced DB Kai is. The dialogue is about 100 times better in Kai than the original but I always find myself going back to the first dub. Just has a better pace.

nah, snail pace isn't my shit, besides the art was retouched and voice acting is better because they've been doing the same character for twenty years. At least in English

The pace in the original DBZ was perfect. I'm not talking about how it took 20 episodes for Namek to explode in 5 minutes mind you, just how smoothly the dialogue went with the show itself. DBZ Kai they transition to different scenes too fast and awkwardly.

Don't really care about the art as the original wasn't the worst in that regard I had ever seen, and yeah the voice acting and dialogue in Kai pisses over the original. They added a lot of random shit in the first Funi dub as well as made a lot of mistakes (such as the over 9000 scene which is actually supposed to be 8000). This is why I love watching the original series in Spanish, because they copied the Japanese dialogue word for word.

Not gonna lie I do usually skip the filler between Raditz dying and vegeta arriving, and the trip to namek. The rest is sweet tho

 better soundtrack as well in kai, none of that weird psuedo-techno midi stuff, though were some great songs, I just like that orchestral ost more.

i can’t stand the snail pace but that is because i’d buy the vhs tapes with three or four episodes and nothing would happen, or i’d finally get to watch it in the morning while on holidays and nothing would happen again

Yeah that was the worst part of Z. Some of the filler though I do actually like. The Ginyu force arriving to King Kai's planet to fight Yamcha, Tien and Chiatzou, or the tournament with Pikkon was cool. As you said though that stuff with the bug planet and whatnot was awful.

Bruce Faulconer's soundtrack was amazing in my opinion.
