Favorite Anime? What show do you plan on next? - Page 4

post #46 of 61
I'm not really a big anime fan, but there's this cartoon on TV here that's hilarious, it's called The World of Golden Eggs. There were a few episodes on Youtube that were taken down, but I think you can still find it somewhere online.

I saw 5 Centimeters Per Second a few weeks ago. It has some rough spots, but it's also really good.

I'm only just getting into anime myself. I recommend Full Metal Alchemist. Its only the second anime series i've watched throughout (the other being neon genesis), But i really enjoyed it.

Death Note was great

I'm currently watching Mushi-shi and enjoying it. It seems a higher quality of animation than the usual TV fare, and the episodes I've seen so far are engrossing. Music is good too. Saw FLCL a while ago. I thought the female characters were very strong, but the series didn't quite work for me. My son is pushing Paranoia Agent and Le Chevalier D'Eon at me next. (Saw a bit of Slam Dunk on cable in India. It seemed awful - like DBZ on a basketball court).

Slaum Dunk is hilarious, the tv series sort of drags on and is quite long but the books are pure genious.

I think I'm gonna watch through Bebop again today instead of doing anything productive.

Currently watching Azumanga Daioh. Picked up the manga recently as well, thought it was great.

Eagerly awaiting The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which seems to be taking forever to get released over here...

Not really an anime fan, but I watched "Nasu:Summer in Andalusia" yesterday, and thought it was good.

The dragging on is why I compared it to DBZ. I can quite believe the manga is better - you could flick through the boring bits.

Story of my life.

Byousoku 5 cm is the Japanese title in case people can't find it.

Kinda depressing. I agree that it's really good. Definitely check it out, its a movie cut into 3 parts.

I think as I've grown older my tastes in anime has changed. Definitely loved Dragonball as a kid, watched a bunch of high school type animes and read mangas for a while (Mitsuru Adachi sports mangas being among my favorite), really enjoyed Honey and Clover as a student not knowing what to do in life. Right now, don't really have anything I like - hopefully I'll find something fun to watch soon.

For a long time I wouldn't go near anime, though somehow knowledge of Dragonball, Sailor Moon, and some others filtered in as if by osmosis. Now I'm older and I can get over the medium itself (though like Brian said, some animes I just can't stand). Death Note was what really grabbed my attention. I had queued up the manga volumes in my Amazon cart for a friend, and when I learned that there was an anime I decided to start watching. Devoured the first twenty episodes and then waited as they continued the story week-by-week. The last third didn't feel as strong as the rest, but still a great series. One of the things I like about it is the almost total lack of traditional over-the-top anime elements. Currently I'm watching Bleach, and after 163 episodes it's still holding my interest. I had mixed feelings about FLCL when I saw it. Madcap with strange moments of pathos. Some things about it were very impressive, though. I haven't watched much Miyazaki beyond Mononoke. Saw Akira a while ago and found it both engrossing and bizarre. There's a lot to make fun of in it. I've got a few friends who are far more into anime than I am. They've recommended Eureka 7, among other series, but I have yet to watch any of them.
