I have been going anime crazy lately. I have been watching so much netflix that I expended everything worth watching until I remembered that there is a whole section for anime. SO MUCH YES to this thread.

I'll just list a few I watched with a quick summary...

Rosario + Vampire - AWESOME (I really liked the Ice girl, Mizore... probably because she was like a mix between sub-zero from mortal kombat and Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club... whick are my favorite characters in each)

Kaze No Stigma -Also awesome. Kind of like a japanese magic mafia thing going on in the story with all the family rivalries.

Angel Beats! - Also Awesome... but more depressing than the ending for Toy Story 3 and that feeling lasts for at least half the season. I cried. I am a grown man and I will admit it. Beautifully written though, really well done.

Elfen Lied - Pretty good... I didn't realize it was a horror anime going in though and it was also really depressing... but not in a hopeful way that Angel Beats! was. I'm not really in to that blood and gore stuff. I got nauseous through a good part of it. Also really well written though and if you like horror animes I recommend it.

My manga reading list has dwindled from a burgeoning weekly checklist to "The Breaker," and the possibly empty promise that I will one day find my place in Claymore and Hajime no Ippo.

Any of you guys seen The Garden of Words yet? Incredibly beautiful - both visually and emotionally - drama that's just 46 minutes long. It's by Makoto Shinkai, the guy who did 5 Centimeters Per Second, The Place Promised in Our Early Days and Children Who Chase Lost Voices. If you've seen any of those you know how amazing is films always look. There's nothing like it.

Currently watching Deadman Wonderland.

I actually started watching XXXHolic.

Apparently it's not about porn.

It is REALLY good though. Sort of a mix between twilight zone and doctor who. and a really good story.

I just finished re-watching Yu Yu Hakusho for 6th time. It just keeps getting better and better! I'm gonna start watching Hunter X Hunter again too.


I also just watched the new Yu-gi-oh series (5d and zexal) and I cannot believe how much they SUCK. The same things true for the new Pokemon series. Childrens animes were just so much better pre-2005.

Currently watching Witchblade.

Just watched Dragonball Kai over again because my gf has NEVER seen DBZ and I didn't want to go through all 271 episodes of DBZ

Meh Kai just didn't sit right with me. I liked the retouched animation but the audio was altered and it kept throwing me off. I liked the original Japanese soundtrack and even liked the silly 90's metal music from the American version. But the new audio is just...not as good to my ears.

I don't really watch that much anime, but when I do I prefer the shorter ones like Evangelion or Code Geass. Recently I finished watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica, which I now believe is not only one of the best anime of all time but one of the best television shows period.
