What anime are you watching thread

Post by Black Ridge » Fri Jan 23, 2015 4:45 pm

Or what anime are you a fan of?

I've got a few episodes left of Attack on Titan to watch on Crunchyroll. Fantastic service if you like to watch the stuff. Recent favourite was Akame ga Kill! Well worth a watch, again, on Crunchyroll

Anyone else into any good series, or given up on a bad one?

The last thing I watched was some Space Dandy, which I enjoyed, I still want to watch some Attack On Titan though.

Well out of the weekly stuff
One Piece,
Dragonball kai,
Pokemon X/Y, the series seems to have an animation budget this series

Not really watching any of this seasons stuff yet

Good idea, then it all goes downhill and kinda losses its way

I watched all of season 1 of Attack on Titan the only anime that leaves me both elevated and depressed at the same time.. First I thought it was to dark with the Titans seeming too powered with some surprising deaths among the humans then later some of the characters such as mika kobayashi seemed overpowered as she single handily killed 10 titans.. Add in the scouts and the titans seemed really weak in comparison to the human until they had the female titan

Also watched Samurai Champoo with was also very good I do want to watch some other series not a clue where to start though

I cant stress enough how good Crunchyroll is. It gets far much more use than my netflix account.

I almost forgot I've been watching Parasyte The Maxim too. Its really violent and is about a high school student who has his hand taken over by a talking alien parasite.

I've heard Gintama is cool. Isn't it a lengthy series though? That's why I find Naruto, Bleach etc overwhelming. They seem to go on forever. Reading the Naruto manga I have up to volume 57 I think. There are loads more out now but struggle to keep up

The overall guide to Gintama is as follows
first 20 epsiodes are rubbish (comapred to the rest of the series), but introduuce most the main characters

A bit of a taster

Theres a load of action bits, most have been made into bloody AMV (What is this 2007?)

Watched half of season 1 of Attack on Titan but gave up as it was frankly too bleak and pointless for me (says he who loved Urotsukidoji Infernal Road).
Also watched Appleseed Alpha which was gorgeous but a bit shallow of story.

Crunchyroll just added the full series of Great Teacher Onizuka or GTO for short. It's pretty old from 1999 and the animation isn't the best but man it's funny as hell. I'm only on episode 9 but it's got me well and truly hooked.

I've just made a (partial) rewatch of Noir, a great anime with a gorgeous soundtrack that I really liked back in 2002. Now I'm going to go for its successors, Madlax and El Cazador de la Bruja. More girls with guns.

Bit the bullet and finished Attack on Titan. Been watching Anime for 30 years and I am horrified to still see the same whiny babies chosen to save the world....jeez it's such a painful cliché.
Now 80% the way through Psycho Pass. Average really, has a GotS feel to it but less action-orientated but just a bit lacking in actual subject matter.
