Anime! Who's watching what?



  • @Cloudid you should quit while you can and watch FMA brotherhood instead ;)
    And yes, you should watch Code Geass afterwards, followed by cowboy bebop, Elfen lied and berserk, all real great series.

    OT: Saw Erased recently and got my Anime groove back, have just started watching Shiki but I'm not really feeling it sofar, only 4 episodes in but does it get any better?



  • So.. I decided to watch Erased the other night. Good lord I was not prepared for the feels this series is giving me. The cliffhangers are gut punching! It's very much a "just one more..." kinda thing, even if it's 4am and you should have been in bed 4 hours ago :p



  • @Cloudid Don't listen to them! Watch both FMA series! It's all great! MOAR FULLMETAL!

    Sorry, can't help it. I love all the Fullmetal things. :3



  • bump since the new season started. Right now, ReLIFE is everything I was hoping it would be, and better yet, they're doing it Netflix style and released the entire season in one go (13 episodes). Berserk is also pretty good and appropriately bloody, but the animation/aesthetics could be a deal breaker for most.

    EDIT: Finished ReLIFE. SO GOOD 5/5



  • Rewatched Metropolis the other night. Still one of the best art directions and animation I've seen in anime



  • Assassination Classroom just ended so I don't know what to do with my emotions. Still watching Bungou Stray Dogs, Sakamoto, and Tanaka-kun. Thinking of picking up Joker Game.



  • Currently I'm only watching Dragonball Super, I like it, the new arc seems pretty interesting and I'm curious who or what Black really is (havn't watched the latest episode yet).



  • Just finished the first season of My Hero Academia. That anime was so much better than I expected. Strong, likeable characters and an intriguing setup. Too many animes have side characters that don't really do a good job of differentiating themselves outside of the main 2 or 3 (looking at you Assassination Classroom, at least the first season). But here, everyone has a character, probably helped a lot by the different powers and costumes to differentiate them a little better.

    I looooove that film. I remember grabbing the DVD (which came with bonus material on a mini DVD) when it was released state-side. One of the better random buys I made.

    I'm a few episodes into the 2nd part of Assassination Classroom. Really enjoying the character arcs.



  • @FutureCorpse Venus wars doesn't get enough recognition. So much style. Way ahead of its time.



  • Watched the first series of Aldnoah Zero, couldnt understand the hate it was getting, thought it was pretty great with a fantastic end. Watched the first episode of series 2 and was like OH. I SEE.

    also watching GATE, it's pretty fun even if the whole normal people in a fantasy world thing has been done to death



  • I mostly just re-watch things these days. I finished Chobits again just the other week and now i'm about half way through re-wathing Romeo x Juliet.

    Yeah I was the same. I actually really liked the 1st season but then it was like: Oh...OH! Oooohh... Inaho is almost at Jesus Yamato's level of OP.



  • @seppo91 I would not quit FMA for FMAB. They should really be treated as two different, since the stories are so radically different.

    For those not in the know, the original FMA anime branches off from the story of the manga after a certain point because the creator was not done with the story, but allowed the studio to creatw their own. Brotherhood is a much closer rendition of the original story. They are both good though.

    Very different, like they went in a different direction after the 10th or15th episode of the original series. Brotherhood covers that material that they shared in just a couple of episodes.



  • The first episode of Food Wars Season 2 is out, and my god I forgot how exceptional this show is! Each episode leaves you hungry for more (both literally and figuratively)! Just it's so good, the animation is beautiful, you're always learning something new, and the characters are so unique. I really can't reccomend this show enough.

    Also the ending of Sakamoto Desu-ga happened this week, and damn, did it get intense. But I loved it all the same.



  • @Lexad Well yeah. I don't think they wanted to tread water and cover the same stuff people had already seen.
    I'm still of the opinion that they should be treated as seperate entities. Even Hiromu Arikawa thinks they should be treated seperately, and appreciates the work they did in the original FMA.

    That was my point, is that there is so little actually in common, that Brotherhood breezes past it and gets back to the original story.



  • @Sazime I didn't mention that I also read the One Punch Man manga before the anime came out and am still keeping up with it. Can't say enough good things about that manga and Yusuke Murata's art. That led me to reading Mob Psycho 100 too after craving more ONE. Now I have found JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (anime) and finally started reading Berserk. :D



  • I'm watchin' that spaghetti fixin' show
