WATCH GUNBUSTER AND DIEBUSTER.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 05 March, 2009, 10:27:59 pm
I'm gonna try Claymore first. Then probably move on to one on your list UF. And I've already seen Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. >_>


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Youef on 05 March, 2009, 10:29:28 pm
I didn't really look at your list anyways. >_>

That isn't a bad list.

Soul Eater is being dubbed by Funimation this year, I think. Smiley

Hm....

I will recommend:
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (Higurashi: When they cry) (And if you like that, Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai and Rei, the 2nd and 3rd seasons.)
Gintama (I love the manga, and the anime is great as well. Only downside about the anime, is that some parts are drawn kinda funny.)
History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi (It's pretty good, at least the manga is. Funimation is dubbing it and releasing a box set this month.)
ToraDora (I like this one in a special way. Animation is great.)
and
Hajime No Ippo (Fighting Spirit! in english.) (Also can watch Hajime no Ippo: Champion's Road and New Challenger.)

Post by: Ahriman on 05 March, 2009, 10:40:58 pm
Highly recommend-

Mobile Fighter G Gundam
The Big O
Yu Yu Hakusho
Gun x Sword
Cromartie High School

Rerecommending-

Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni
Gunbuster
Diebuster
Cowboy Bebop
Cowboy Bebop

And I figure that's enough to last a while. But really, if you haven't watched Cowboy Bebop you're sort of obliged to do so.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 05 March, 2009, 10:51:07 pm
Right now it looks like:

Claymore
Cowboy Bebop

Also thinking of trying a really long one, but I don't want to get into one that I'm not going to enjoy.

The best anime of a particularly long length I've watched is Yu Yu Hakusho, at around 112 episodes. Of course, if you don't like it you can stop watching it at any time.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Rai on 05 March, 2009, 11:07:13 pm
I'll recommend...
Hellsing Ultimate.
Darker than BLACK
FLCL
Welcome to the NHK!
Sayonara, Zetsubou Sensei (Zoku and Goku, too.)

And when it comes to Fullmetal Alchemist, you may want to wait for the new series in April. It's supposed to follow the manga closer, which most people like more, but the first series is still very good, you'll just be getting a lot of repetition for a little while if you watch both.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Rai on 05 March, 2009, 11:08:51 pm
G Gundam, which Ahriman suggested and I second, is like 50 episodes if you consider that long.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Ahriman on 05 March, 2009, 11:11:23 pm
I specifically looked to not recommend Welcome to the NHK just because I don't think it'd be very enjoyable unless you've seen some other anime previously.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Rai on 05 March, 2009, 11:15:54 pm
I was wondering why you didn't.

But considering how many other more interesting suggestions have been made, he'll likely have watched more by the time he gets around to it, if ever.

Either way, I'd put the same warning on SZS.

Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 05 March, 2009, 11:21:07 pm

I guess about medium. Most of the anime that's shown to kids on Saturday mornings are about that length.

Side note: Claymore is looking good, based on the first episode.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Ahriman on 05 March, 2009, 11:23:03 pm
SZS is all good as long as you're sadistic. The only jokes I could see going over someone's head are the things whatshername the otaku says and a couple other references in random places like the Fusion Dance.


Also, according to the spell check, whatshername is a word.

Side note: Claymore is looking good, based on the first episode.

Never watched it, but as I understand the ending is incredibly disappointing. <_<


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Youef on 05 March, 2009, 11:34:02 pm
Berserk is also pretty good.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Rai on 06 March, 2009, 12:32:24 am
SZS has a lot of jokes for average joe, but there are a lot of other ones joe will miss, too <_<

The entire first part of episode one of Zoku was a satire on Kamen Rider, I've heard.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

And what's her name is Fujiyoshi.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

Yeah, any joke based on other animes will go over my head.

Kamen Rider isn't anime though. >_> And even if it is I thought that episode was one of the better ones in ZSZS.

THE ENDING IS ONLY DISAPPOINTING IF YOU'VE READ THE MANGA, I THINK


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

Kamen Rider isn't anime though.

IT'S STILL JAPANESE


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 06 March, 2009, 08:03:32 pm
Done with Claymore. Really good, although ending was meh and it felt condensed, like they would introduce something then not mention it again.

No, it's just another case of your opinion sucking.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Rai on 07 March, 2009, 02:33:44 pm
But there's nothing interesting about it at all. It's not bad, it's just unbelievably bland. The voice actors are horrible, and the artwork and character designs are kind of ugly.

How much of Chrono Crusade have you watched?


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Rai on 07 March, 2009, 02:56:08 pm
A single episode!

But nothing motivated me to try to watch more, even when I had absolutely nothing to do. Though this one time I plopped on an episode from like the middle of the series to see if anything had changed, and nothing had. Plot was boring, setting was lame, didn't like the characters in personality, design, or voice.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

My G Gundam files had that.

But I downloaded it so I was able to shut them off. Evidently whoever uploaded it had a dual audio version but forgot to turn off the subs when they changed the language.

Unless you downloaded it, and you forgot to turn off the subs <_<

Elfen Lied could have made a respectable anime/manga if they substituted out all of the nudity and gore to fill in the rest of the story. The anime notably has a ton of plot-holes, and has a rush-job of an ending that ended up producing more plotholes.

Like I said, over rated anime. I still enjoyed it, I just didn't find it as enjoyable as most people. Also I'm not a person to give out 10s, so my ratings kinda mean more than an average rater.

It's definitely not perfect, the ending in particular. While the nudity and blood/gore is over the top, I was never really annoyed by it. The nudity was never sexual, just plain nudity. Surprisingly, I find ecchi very annoying. So, I guess I prefer entertainment over a complex storyline in my anime. Eh.

The nudity was gratuitous, however. There is no existing justification for it, except maybe in the case of Nana and other generic dicloni in that it showed their horrid living conditions. Still could have been averted, though.

I did agree it was over the top. It still didn't bother me though.


Also, done with first episode of Death Note. Looks interesting, although I'm iffy about Light's character and Ryuk looks stupid.

Post by: Youef on 26 March, 2009, 07:19:32 pm
You will either hate Light or like him. Personally, I despised him with a passion.

There's two sides in the show your opinion will follow, Light or L. IMO, L was pretty much the antithesis to Light in that L is one of my favorite anime characters.

And Ryuk is cool, although his purpose is just to tell Light how the Death Note works and how shinigami live and do stuff and blah blah blah. I don't remember him doing anything else big in the show.

Anyways, it's a great show. Have fun. And as a word of warning (and this is really just my opinion >_>), the first 25 episodes are awesome, but the last 12 aren't particularly as good. They're great, but just not as epic as the first 25.

I'm up to 6 episodes, and I'm still on the fence about Light. I do like L though, although he looks meh. Ryuk is cool, yeah, it's just his look I hate.

Oddly, I haven't decided who my "opinion" is for, Light or L. I'm kinda in between.

The main character can't seem like the antagonist. He can seem like the villain, but not the antagonist. The antagonist specifically refers to the person against the protagonist, they don't need to be bad or good respectively.

And I like and hate Light. In terms of morals, he's absolutely horrible and his methods are nonsensical, but I like him as a character a lot. He's a great psycho.

L doesn't seem to change a whole lot, if at all. The development that might have happened end up concealed by the fact that he probably wasn't serious at all. Still entertaining though.

Well, the ending was good, except for the fact I wanted Near to die so badly. I hate that it was that pathetic excuse that "won", it should have been L. I still say Near and Mello were pitiful replacements for L.

As for what's next, it's between Neon Genesis Evangelion and Code Geass. Both look good, although I think I heard NGE has unlikeable characters, while Code Geass is two seasons long.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

NGE is a deconstruction of the Super Robot genre. As in, it takes the concepts and shows you why they don't make sense by applying REALISMNESS to them.

So if you like deconstructions, go for it. But the characters are all bad. Who likes real people? Honestly.

And Code Geass, season 1, is great. Very great. Season 2 is less great, but still good. Ish. Many would call it a trainwreck, actually, but that's a hyperbole.

And I agree with you about Near and Mello being pitiful replacements, but I don't think L should have won. Or if he did, the series should have taken no longer than it did up to his dying. They should have just made his "replacements" not be freaking clones of him.

Yeah, it's not so much that I wanted L to win, I just didn't want Near to. They should have made good characters instead of Near and Mello.

Done.

Well, the ending was good, except for the fact I wanted Near to die so badly. I hate that it was that pathetic excuse that "won", it should have been L. I still say Near and Mello were pitiful replacements for L.

As for what's next, it's between Neon Genesis Evangelion and Code Geass. Both look good, although I think I heard NGE has unlikeable characters, while Code Geass is two seasons long.
YU YU HAKUSHO.

Yeah, I should finish Soul Eater. Last time I watched it was around episode 39. It split from the manga around episode 36-ish, and became incredibly boring soon after during the anime-only section.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

Done with Code Geass.

Not bad, some characters were a bit facepalm worthy but otherwise good characters, story is acceptable even if it's a bit over the top, and good animation. R2 is next, even though I keep hearing it's disappointing.

Also, I decide to switch Elfen Lied and TTGL. TBH it doesn't really matter, cause I kinda like them both equally, just in different ways.

R2's storyline is even more pretentious than the first season's plot. Season 2 is good though, just as great.

And yeah, the second opening for Code Geass was abysmal. The third opening was good though. And you watch anime faster than everyone else here besides maybe Bizzle. >_>

I...am probably the slowest at watching anime. I'm still watching Trigun, despite starting it like two months ago.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that I'm watching a bunch of stupid crap.

And watch Fullmetal Alchemist next. I'm too lazy to check if you did already. The first half of the series was fantastic. Second half split from the manga, like Soul Eater. However, unlike Soul Eater, the anime-only section is still good. It's not as good, but still good nonetheless.

Finish the anime, and then read the manga afterwards. The manga is probably in my top three in comparison to anime (can't be in comparison to manga, because I don't read any manga). That's why I'm excited for the new season of FMA (TWO DAYS DIFJDSF). It's going to be entirely based off of the manga rather than just one-half. Might be longer too.

I started it in 2007. I haven't finished it. I haven't even watched a single episode of it since then. I stopped at episode 11 of 14, by the way. >_>

I started The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in 2007 and never finished it. That's probably because I think it's overrated as hell despite still being good, but whatever. I also plan on finishing it since it's so short. >_>

I also started G Gundam months ago and I'm only 5 episodes into it. I think the fastest show I've watched though was the first season of Higurashi. I finished that in like a day or two. The second season took me a while to actually get into, considering how the first five episodes were boring as hell.

I won't say I'm slower than you. I used to be pretty fast. Now I'm extremely slow.

By the way Jake, make sure to hate Satako. She's the short kid with the short blond hair that no one likes.

ONII-CHAN BAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
Higurashi spoilers
That scene with Shion stabbing Satako to death on that cross was awesome tbqh. >_>
End
Indeed it was, the arc in general was awesome.
Both of the Mion/Shion arcs were the best tbqh. Though the first arc was also awesome. The last one was great too. Hell, they all were great (except that two-episode arc with the detective guy from Tokyo was pretty boring). But as I said, my favorites were the Mion/Shion arcs.

In terms of arcs just off the top of my head:

Shion's arc > Rena's arc = Mion's arc > First Kenchi arc > Whatever one I'm missing > Second Kenchi arc

Be clearer then, God, jeez, what the heck. God. Jeez. What the heck.

It was about Keiichi helping Satako. Satako doesn't deserve help! Therefore that arc sucked!

This whole multiple arc thing is confusing when you don't mention episodes.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Youef on 17 April, 2009, 03:21:35 am
First Arc - Episodes 1-4 (First Arc)
Second Arc - Episodes 5-8 (Mion Arc)
Third Arc - Episodes 9-13 (Satako Arc)
Fourth Arc - Episodes 14-15 (Akasaka Arc)
Fifth Arc - Episodes 16-21 (Shion Arc)
Sixth Arc - Episodes 22-26 (Rena Arc)

*From Wikipedia.*

They don't have actual names, unless you want to refer to them as "Chapters," which is what the show goes by. But for the sake of simplicity, we won't bother. We've just been calling them "Satako arc" and stuff. And don't worry about not knowing what we're talking about. You won't get anything in the show until you watch Season 2 anyways. >_>

You'll know which arc we're talking about as soon as you finish each one.

There, I named them.

Shion Arc > Rena Arc > Mion Arc > First Arc > Satako Arc > Akasaka Arc

IMO. The last 10 or 11 episodes were the best overall.


They don't have actual names

Yeah they do. >_>
I implied that they actual show gives them names. BUT AT BP WE DON'T CALL THEM BY WHAT THE SHOW CALLS THEM, SO WE SHALL NOT MAKE THINGS EVEN MORE COMPLICATED.

It's got gratuitous nudity, over the top blood and gore, and ending is rushed. But, I found the characters likable (minus Yuka and possibly the one egotistical guy who's name escapes me), it's well drawn, plot was good to me (granted it's short, so plot didn't need as much fleshing out), and even though it's over the top, it's does benefit from the blood, gore, and nudity. Also, the nudity isn't sexual, which I found a relief personally.

As long as you expect the nudity and blood/gore, you'll enjoy it.

Done with Code Geass.

Not bad, some characters were a bit facepalm worthy but otherwise good characters, story is acceptable even if it's a bit over the top, and good animation. R2 is next, even though I keep hearing it's disappointing.

Also, I decide to switch Elfen Lied and TTGL. TBH it doesn't really matter, cause I kinda like them both equally, just in different ways.

Lucy is voiced by Sanae Kobayashi; of ****ing course anyone who has a brain would watch the sub.

Also, Elfen Lied is mediocre, GFJ just didn't notice the numerous flaws.

Oh, and JYB, much like Yuri Lowenthal, never changes his voice. He's still awesome, though, especially when he has a malicious tone.

Even if I was a bit bummed about Shion turning crazy, I liked her character back when I thought she was herself the whole time. Not that I now don't, it's just more of a "Yagami Light" enjoyment now, as in delightfully twisted and demented.

So, does it explain it more in the second season? Anyway, it was good, although I still have my qualms about it. Anyway, option time:

Shion Arc > Mion Arc > Rena Arc > First Arc > Satoko Arc > that 2 episode arc
Shion > Mion > Rena > Satoko (SUCK IT UF) > Rika > Keiichi

Keiichi is the "good guy" in season 2 more so than in season 1. But that's a given, since everyone is crazy besides maybe Mion in season 1. All of them calm down in season 2 though besides maybe one person.

Watch End of Evangelion.

Death and Rebirth is a recap in movie form, End of Evangelion is what the ending would have been had the budget not been wasted, You Are Not Alone is a remake of the first fourth of the series.


Don't bother with Death and Rebirth, watch the other two.

Explain the difference between FMA and FMA:B.
FMA - Starts off very similar to the manga, but it has a plethora of differences that affect the show later on. It then finally splits completely like 25 or 30 episodes in. The last 26 episodes aren't quite as good as the first 25, but they're still pretty good. 51 episodes total. Finished.

FMA:B - Truer to the manga. First episode is different from the first chapter, but it picks up from there. The pacing is really fast, because they already went over the beginning in the first series, even thought they had their differences. But if you want my guess, then I'd say they're going to slow it down substantially as the series progresses, particularly when it reaches the point where the first anime didn't cover. 5 episodes so far. Not finished. It updates every Sunday.

FMA manga has some fantastic pacing though. Probably the best of the three. It has a few chapters left, but that's meaningless. It updates monthly. 94 chapters so far, I believe. Each chapter is like 35-40 pages.

I'd recommend watching both. Just marathon FMA until you finish it or whatever, and watch FMA:B as it updates. FMA:B is far from finished. And please make sure to watch the dub for FMA. It's fantastic and better than the sub IMO. If you want to, go ahead and read the manga. It's my favorite of the three.

Post by: Maniac234678 on 07 May, 2009, 04:21:14 pm
Most manga to anime adaptations end in the manga being more fleshed out, interesting, likable and unfortunately often longer, though. For the most notable examples, if you're going to watch things like Tenjou Tenge, the original Hellsing anime or Negima!, it's almost entirely preferable just to forget about the anime and read the manga.

The same works both ways, or multiple ways when you include media such as light novels or visual novels being the original format for the media.

As you've probably already guessed, there are seven humonculi in the series. Here's what I think of each of them (I won't spoil anything, obviously).

Envy - He's a trap and a bastard. I hate him.
Sloth - Indifferent.
Lust - Nothing special. Better than her manga counterpart though.
Wrath - I can't think of anyone who likes this son of a ****. He's 100x worse than Envy. You'll meet him soon.
Pride - Manga Pride is completely different and better. He's not bad though.
Greed - Best humonculi along with manga Pride. He's awesome.
Gluttony - Cute, olo.

Just as a warning, the show only goes downhill from where you are.

Done with FMA.

Good, very good. The main characters were both good and likable, especially Armstrong. The plot was sometimes repeated too often (yeah yeah, we've heard your equivalent exchange phrase, stop saying it so much), some spots started feeling episodic and added on as filler, and whatever the girl's name is (Winry? something weird like that), she was annoying most of the time. (hated seeing her during the 3rdish ending credits)

But damn do I hate Wrath and Envy. Also damn you episode 25. Also ending was meh. Also the "Edward is really short so he over reacts to comments" running gag in the beginning annoyed me. Also some scenes of nauseating female fanservice.

God damnit I hate these "the movie is the real ending" crap. I'd rather the actual ending be the real ending, is that really to much to ask for?

As for a new series altogether, watch another space western anime, because we all know that you don't like the genre and even the best anime in that genre was ranked low by you.

Somehow I'm going to say no.

I laugh at you comparing Trigun to Cowboy Bebop. They're completely different shows. Besides, there's like two episodes in Trigun that take place in outer space.

And I generally abhor the Western genre too. A lot, actually. But Trigun is one major exception.

When I said "Watch anime and not Trigun," I didn't mean "You have to watch this show because it's a classic and everybody loves it!" That's like me saying "Watch Lucky Star, it's a classic!" even though I've never seen that show. >_>

I meant "You have to watch this show because it's one of the best anime out there IMO!" Maybe I didn't make that clear, but whatever.

Not only was that statement completely random, the only difference in those statements in the current context is emphasis.

Regardless, I was attempting to be an asshat with my first response, and I do find the concept of advocating a critical anime "classic" pointless. Anything with that title is something that no matter what you do with anime, as long as you keep watching it, something will lead you to it, anyway.

Yeah, which goes back to my last post. I was telling him to watch Trigun because I thought it was one of the best anime out there, not because it's a classic. Telling him to watch a show because it's popular doesn't really make any sense. Obviously my post implied otherwise. >_>

I think this is the first little "argument" I've had with someone since Raizor a year ago.

I generally know when I'm not going to care for an anime, and except for NGE I've been right. Many "classics" I haven't enjoyed that much. Mostly FLCL, it's garbage and I fail to see why anybody liked it. Cowboy Bebop I can admit was good, I just didn't get into it.

Also, anybody heard of "Giniro no Olynssis"? Looks interesting but I'm not sure.

Stopped at episode 5. Not because it was bad, but because I'm in one of those moods where I don't feel like watching anime.
Once I'm back in an anime mood I'll pick it back up.

So after a multi-month long break from anime, finished Wolf's Rain. I can't really pick out many reasons, but it was very meh. Basically:

- Most characters weren't that likable for one reason or another. Toboe is annoying, Tsume looks like a gay biker, and Kiba has no personality. Even the villain Darcia gets lame when he starts having his over the top freak out moments.
- Ending was iffy. I've seen worse but it's not what I'd call good.
- The pace was so damn slow. Too much drama and not enough action. Pity too cause it was a cool concept.

So, not terrible but not worth watching imo. I guess The Big O is next.

Forgot about Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei...

- First episode was hilarious. Most I've laughed in an anime so far.
- Episodes 2-4 were almost pointless. Also I was pissed that they didn't show Rika killing her mom. I thought it was a dream at first, then I was pissed when she started talking about how she actually did it. I expected it to show up later, but no.
- Last episode was pretty funny as well, but not as much as the first.

Overall, the two episodes were surprisingly funny and enjoyable. The "main" story was subpar and pointless. Hard to rank when the episodes are so different...

Big O's OSTs is amongst my favorites. Your taste should be like mine, olo.

The mood, the music, and the fact I just plain feel like "This is good and everything, but I'm just not really enjoying it."
Cowboy Bebop was an anime I thought was "good" but I didn't really enjoy it that much. I got the EXACT SAME FEELING watching the first episode of The Big O.

Music, maybe. Mood...Well just so you know the show turns into an explosion of lolwut later on. >_> All right then. But at least watch another episode or two. I'm not saying "osdfsjfksfjkd watch more and you'll definitely like it," as there is a chance that's not the case, but some shows don't really have good first impressions. I remember G Gundam was like that for me, but instead of 1, make that 12.

If not, then watch Samurai Champloo, G Gundam (if you can get past the first 12 episodes that is >_>), or Darker than Black. Or watch Outlaw Star and tell me how that is. >_>

Oh, I'm not that into anime. I already knew that. My opinions differ from most people's, and I frequently get "bored" of anime for months at a time. That's why I don't latch onto people's suggestions that easily, they tend to expect me to love whichever anime they do.

The first post ITT I rank the ones I've seen, and I honestly have liked most of them, just few that I really enjoyed. I'd say the ones I "love" are TTGL-Code Geass, "liked" are Death Note-MoHS, "acceptable" are HnNKnK-Wolf's Rain. NGE was a "liked" till near the end, turned into an "acceptable" up until the final two episodes, which was bullshit that I will never forgive. FLCL was a waste of my time.

Yes, because two people reviving old arguments over popular anime in a topic where the TC hasn't seen any anime, people having friendly conversations that's not about the anime the TC is watching, and the TC explaining his views on anime while people try to sound like they know the TC better than he does is completely because of the TC. Your logic is astounding.

Being someone who barely gives a damn about anime, you're not entirely alone. I just hang around others who do, get some names and opinions of a bunch of ****, then throw out "I'VE HEARD OF THAT AND I ALSO HAVE HEARD THAT IT SUCKS."

This is a long topic for someone who generally doesn't like anime...

Yes, because two people reviving old arguments over popular anime in a topic where the TC hasn't seen any anime, people having friendly conversations that's not about the anime the TC is watching, and the TC explaining his views on anime while people try to sound like they know the TC better than he does is completely because of the TC. Your logic is astounding.

Indeed.

Anyway, up to episode 5 of Element Hunters. Characters are starting to define themselves a bit more. Ren's the typical "willpower > common sense" lead, Chiara's the typical redhead, and damnit I swear Homi is a girl. I know it's a guy but I swear it's a girl. Anyway, Homi is the "shy bookworm". Oh, and it has a cutesy little girl character, Juno. She's alright, although close to getting "Nipa!" annoying...

Action is pretty good, main concern is the characters. Not bad, but they're all borderline annoying. Also I think this was made for younger teens and not older ones.

Updates:

Element Hunters is still in its "episodic" phase. Characters are still iffy, borderline unlikable. Also episode 13 made me RAGE at the end.

The Big O is getting good actually. At first I was worried it'd focus on the setting, kinda a "futuristic world yet just like the mid-20th century". Which I hate actually, one of the reasons I didn't like Cowboy Bebop as much as everybody else seemed to. Characters are good (although Dorthy keeps switching from a great character to DORTHY YOU MAKE NO SENSE), although each have various faults. At least they're all likable. Only seen 8 episodes so far though. Also, opening is growing on me despite it annoying me first time I saw it. Ending song is still mediocre though.

Big O just stops making sense altogether by the last two episodes. It's like NGE, except likable.

I don't hate NGE anymore. I think it's "pretty good" now, but still very overrated. I only really hated the last two episodes. And I thought Gun X Sword was boring and had boring characters, but whatever.

And even that shouldn't really matter given the fact that I think YYH, Big O, and G Gundam are three of the best shows I've ever seen. That should outweigh Lame X Sword. >_>


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Ahriman on 07 October, 2009, 08:14:17 pm
perhaps


My opinion of Gun x Sword has lowered since watching it but you still had it listed as the absolute worst you've seen under some pretty bad stuff. But your favorite stuff is the same so I guess.

And since my opinion on people is all that should matter to them Bizzle's life is now meaningless.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Youef on 07 October, 2009, 08:16:38 pm
Honestly, I only placed Gun X Sword as the absolute worst because I couldn't find another position for it. But even if I did, it would still be pretty low. The absolute worst is Vampire Knight by far. Unless we're counting unfinished shows. In that case, make that School Days.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

Finished The Big O.

I'm not sure what to say. Uh, likable characters that were three dimensional, good action, nice humor. On the other hand, episodes were ether too episodic or too jumpy (I mean, they're in the Bigs, Big Fowl gets defeated, then they're at a table eating lunch? Did I miss a scene? What about the sporadic love scene with Angel and Roger?). Ending was a mind ****, no doubt, although since it was made to be that way it wasn't that bad... certainly better than that *ahem* other ending I hate.

Overall, rather impressed. Started off a bit slow, kinda gave off the wrong feel. Started getting good with the action, then the characters started showing their dept. Then the mind fucks keep you hooked. Of course, little made sense, and I still don't like the blues music/futuristic world that looks like the mid-20th century look.

It's a bit lower on the list, but I really did enjoy this one. Glad I stuck through the first couple episodes.

Ending was a mind ****, no doubt, although since it was made to be that way it wasn't that bad... certainly better than that *ahem* other ending I hate.

I don't see how that other ending was not intentional mind****ery.

It was because of the budget cuts. It was just repeating and pointless scenes. It was a "What the ****?" not a "Holy ****!".

I'm assuming it's suppose to be in black and white? That wasn't just me imagining it? Odd choice...

Anyway... oh boy. I liked the concept, the action was surprisingly good especially since this is 20 years old, and overall it was an ok anime. But... GOD DAMN MAKE THESE GIRLS SHUT UP. HOLY HELL ALL THEY DO IS CRY, GO INTO JEALOUS RAGES, AND FLASH THEIR BOOBIES. ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH.

Diebuster done.

It was pretty damn weird. Characters weren't nearly as bad as Gunbuster, but still not great. The plot was way too weird, abstract, and weak. Action was good, but was a bit hampered down by how damn silly all the main Buster Machines looked. Also Nono being a Buster Machine that controlled the space monsters was, imo, a pretty lame plot twist. Oh, and the ending was bad too.

Overall, slightly better than Gunbuster but still just ok.

There's two animes I really want to see, FMA: Brotherhood and Umineko no Naku Koro ni. Both of which are ongoing. That would make three anime's I'm watching at the same time, which is too much. I need something that's completed already, but nothing really comes to mind.

Since I need something that isn't ongoing, I'm watching Slap Up Party. For reasons that are obvious to anybody who knows what the anime is based off of. Pretty meh so far, but damn do they have an awesome ending:

Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 08 November, 2009, 11:29:35 pm
Done with Chobits...

Eh, mixed feelings. It did have some funny jokes, some parts were good. Overall though it's kinda creepy, like Ahriman said it's like someone's self indulgent fantasy (minor spoilers)They went way overboard with Chii's ****, holy **** guys it's not a shrine. Don't word things like "You are not allowed to enter!". I checked how the dubbed worded it to see if it sounded less creepy: "So don't... try to come inside!" >_>, and it does take away from the plot quite a bit... not to mention the "plot" only shows up in maybe 10 episodes. The rest is episodic, so hit or miss. Oh, and two recap episodes, which is ridiculous for a 26 episode anime (Some sites list them as side episodes, thus making it 24 episodes long, but still counts). Ending felt rushed yet still strung out, so not sure what they were doing with that. I did rate it kinda high, since I did enjoy it despite its many flaws. Eh, not something I'd recommend though.


Side note: Minoru in the dub is voiced by the same guy who did Izzy from Digimon. Even though I didn't watch the dub except to check something (the part in the spoilers) I found it eerie...


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

Try Samurai Champloo if you want. Not sure if you'll like it. Personally I thought it was a lot better than Cowboy Bebop, but whatever. If not, you can always watch Baccano. That show is so incredibly violent but manages to be so very light-hearted at the same time. >_>

Samurai Champloo
Baccano

Yes?

I don't remember recommending YYH, but go ahead and include that in my list considering how it's in my top 5. You might call it a bit generic, but it's extremely good.

Understandable. It's also very long compared to the other shows I've recommended, so I guess it'd make sense to watch the others first.

Nevertheless, I'd highly recommend it. It actually has some really good animation at points. The only con is that it doesn't really have good music save for the opening song which I like a lot for some reason. >_>

Partly, but more like take your breaks in between episodes, and don't stop watching the series until it's finished. In one day.

Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 09 November, 2009, 12:25:56 am
I'm going to hold off on Darker than BLACK, as I'll probably want to watch the second season and having THREE animes that are ongoing is already very annoying. YYH I probably won't watch next for length reasons. Which leaves Samurai Champloo, Baccano, and Bokurano (which I doubt I'll watch in a day, my anime daily tolerance isn't quite that high)...


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Youef on 09 November, 2009, 12:29:31 am
Yeah, a bunch of the shows I'm watching are on-going, hence why I'm holding off on FMA:B and Umineko until they finish. FMA seems like it'll be better if I marathon it anyways. I'm also taking a break from One Piece.

Come to think of it, I haven't watched that much anime lately besides One Piece and Baccano. Well, whatever. Out of the two you have left over from my recommendation list, I'd say go for Samurai Champloo.

I've seen plenty of people hate on FLCL before though. It'd truly be an accomplishment if you hated YYH.


Watch the dub if you watch it at all btw.

Ah right, dub vs sub...

More recommendations on the suggested anime everybody, sub vs dub (if applicable)?


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Ahriman on 09 November, 2009, 01:18:48 am
Yu Yu Hakusho-Dub
Dark Than BLACK-I don't even know if it is dubbed
Samurai Champloo-Dub
Baccano-I've seen both recommended but I haven't actually watched either
Bokurano-Manga


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Youef on 09 November, 2009, 08:27:09 am
Just watch the dubs for all of them.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen

I stayed up till 5 in the morning watching it. >_>

Yes it is. I didn't warm up to some of the style at first, and still don't like certain elements of it's style (the joke of Fuu getting fat I didn't find funny), but I did warm up to a lot of it. Action was excellent, good humor, it had good characters (although I would have loved to see more Jin, with his hair up. >_>). Ending was eh... not great but not bad. I halfway was hoping that Jin and Mugen had fatal wounds, thus when they fought in the last episode they would both stab and kill each other. It would have shown how much they grew to respect each other, that they wanted the other person to be the one to take their life.

Although, I have to ask... what's with animes like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo having all the gay jokes? >_>


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: Spring-Loaded on 13 November, 2009, 11:44:52 pm
The ending was that they found purpose beyond revenge/bloodshed. None of them had any good reason to live besides that. Jin and Mugen didn't have a good reason to go with Fuu either, but they just did it, despite their pasts. And the Christianity thing was an awesome backdrop for it all.

The only thing I was kind of disappointed in was the lack of characters, who should've come back, coming back (that gay assassin, that spy chick that would amrry mugen etc.

Indeed, the lack of recurring characters besides the policeman was rather disappointing. However, while I did greatly enjoy the series as a whole, the thing that bothered me most was the very obvious focus on Mugen as opposed to Jin, who I actually liked more.

Agreed. I appreciate the fleshing out of characters that would only last one episode, however some really needed to be in more than one. A few were ok in a single episode (Ukon comes to mind), but many should of had a few more episodes.

It certainly wasn't a bad ending, they did a good job of having the characters grow through out the anime. I just thought my other suggestion would have been cool as well.

Next is Yu Yu Hakusho.

Artstyle is... meh. First episode looked good though. Ties Elfen Lied for best first scene I've seen in an anime.

Episode 6: XD I don't know why, but I found "Sorry, I don't have time to be arrested" hilarious. This anime seems to have quite a few simple yet funny one liners like that.

So, at the end of episode 27 I had a feeling like I've seen something like it before. Turns out I have a Shonen Jump from a few years back and there was a couple of Yu Yu Hakusho chapters in there, about the fight between Yusuke and Toguro in the Dark Tournament.

One of those "... huh" moments.

-Episode 37 "Tell me Demon Traitor, what does the word make-up bring to mind?"
I bet Kurama has a lot on his mind about that kind of subject. >_>

-Episode 56 I'm on schedule for my 2 week goal. Right now the anime is going back and forth between a 8/10 and a 9/10. The actions great, storyline's good, and the artstyle isn't hindering it as much as I first thought. But a few characters **** me off greatly, and the enemies have been mostly lame, which a few exceptions.

I think that's the aussie guy. Kuwabara's sister is always smoking. I called her a moron cause she actually cried that the guy Toguro was working for killed himself with his bomb. This being after she heard both of his speeches about loving to torture things and wanting to unleash demons in the human world. All cause he helped her once or twice.

I'm referring to her, though. I'm pretty sure she's an alcoholic as well, though I could be thinking of Yusuke's mother who looks a lot like her if I recall correctly. >_>

Also, it's probably because based on what we see, Sakyo isn't nearly as monstrous as his background and goal would imply.

That's if they're trying to hide the fact they're there. Like, if they get caught. Which I don't actually see that often, I mostly see it in the above context.

And done with Yu Yu Hakusho.

Overall, really good. I debated a bit over whether it was an 8 or a 9, but decided on 9/10. It was really enjoyable, despite a few annoyances. As far as the arcs go, I'd rank them Dark Tournament (26-66), Spirit Detective (1-25), Three Kings (95-112), and lastly Chapter Black (67-94). Of the arcs, the first three are close but Chapter Black wasn't nearly as good as those, it's probably the sole reason I almost gave the series an 8. I wished Three Kings had lasted longer, it had a good premise but it felt rushed through, whereas Chapter Black felt like it dragged on.

Characters... I'll say Hiei > Kurama > Yusuke Urameshi > Genkai > Keiko > Ogre > Botan > Kuwabara > Koenma. All had their ups and downs (Botan seemed to fall victim to this the most, THE GOD DAMN CAT FACE WASN'T FUNNY NOR CUTE), but most were solid. Koenma was always an annoyance though. As for character deaths: They pulled death cards WAY too often in this. Yusuke's first death made sense, it set up the story. His second death was BS, him being half demon should have come into play without pretending to kill him off. Genkai's death was also BS, perhaps the biggest since they show her in spirit world, then bring her back to life for no reason. Plus there were plenty of fake deaths, Kuwabara's, countless minor enemies, etc.

The action and fights were good, although a few fights were pretty stupid because of one of the fighters ether being lame or having lame attacks. Humor was well put and rarely failed to get a small smile out of me. Story was good, although a bit out there at times and underplayed at other moments.

Genkai was alive because they wished her back to life. They won the Dark Tournament, so they got one wish.

And Chapter Black was the best in my opinion.

Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 05 December, 2009, 06:36:58 pm
It was still a cheap way out, since the committee were all killed, thus I think it was Koenma pulling a few strings to make it happen.

And boo. Sensui was a disappointment for me and the territory powers were too gimmicky and underplayed for me.

Not really ragingly annoyed because at least you liked the show, but the Chapter Black arc is not the worst arc (although it did contain the most asspulls). I personally like it second most after the Dark Tournament. The rest is preference I suppose.

That character list is whack though. What's your problem with Kuwabara?

Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 05 December, 2009, 09:26:16 pm

Show me your character list so I can compare.

Firstly, I enjoyed almost all the characters. Even the characters near the bottom I don't really dislike (except Koenma).
Secondly, the character list is flawed for the reason of character looks vs personalities. For example, Korama has the best personality, but his looks bring him below Hiei.
Thirdly, Kuwabara. These are the reason I didn't particularly like him:
1. Look. That red hair is hideous.
2. Voice. I hate the "duh huh huh" voice.
3. He's shown as a laughstock. He's always given the "at least he tried!" role in almost all his fights. Name a major fight in which he got the finishing blow.
4. He goes a tad overboard with his honor code.

Except for those 4 things he's an ok character.

And done.

This is one of that anime's that get you hyped with it's premise, but leaves you feeling like it could have been far more incredible. It was still good, but it had a few problems that leaves you wanting more.

Firstly, the characters are ether incredibly unlikable or overly goody-good. I wish they would have toned down some of the annoying ones down so we could at least relate to them. Second, the giant robot battles are made to be secondary to the characters struggles, yet they did a good job on them, so you wish it had been given some more attention. Lastly, the plot can get a tad confusing at times, not often but enough to leave you guessing at a few things.

I'm assuming the manga is far more in-depth, so it's probably really good. I don't read manga though so eh.
I gave the anime an 8/10.

That had to of been the worst plot set up I've even seen in an anime.

"Hey, since we're at the Niagra Falls can we do some sightseeing?"
"**** NO ***** I'M HERE TO SEE NEOCANADA'S GUNDAM FIGHTER"
"GAWD I'M SO UNHAPPY AS YOUR PARTNER"
"WE ARE NO LONGER PARTNERS"
"OH NO I'VE BEEN CAPTURED"
"YOU AREN'T MY PARTNER"
"OH NO I MIGHT FALL OVER THE FALLS IN A GUNDAM, WHICH YOU JUST DID AND ARE FINE BUT IT WILL CLEARLY KILL ME"
"OMG I'M SO SAD PLEASE SPARE HER I'LL DO ANYTHING ;_;"

... actually, my mistake. I forgot they say all this woodenly.

Finished Umineko...

Hmm. It started off really good. Mysteries abound, characters started getting interesting, violent and gory deaths, and the OP was badass. Near the end though... it all goes apeshit. I have no clue what the hell was going on half the time, they threw in so many pointless characters I didn't like, the focus shifted to effing Maria (**** **** >_>), and the main plot took a backseat to multiple subplots going on at the same time. Cliffhanger ending as well.

7/10

On a side note, still at episode 11 of Mobile G Gundam Fighter. I have to force myself to watch this. >_>

Then it might as well be a book. Which Umineko would be more effective as because I wouldn't constantly be in shock at how somebody decided anything that looks like that should be professionally released.

And Higurashi looked even worse.

Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 01 February, 2010, 12:21:02 am
Done with Gantz.

First the positives... it was entertaining at times, some of the minor characters had badass moments, and a really awesome concept. I love life and death game set ups, main reason I watched this despite hearing bad things about it. What else... uh, it had lots of boobies? I don't particularly care about nudity in animes (that's why there's hentai >_>) but it's kinda a plus, I guess.

Negatives... it was **** stupid. The situations were poorly thought out, and everybody acted like morons. Not even basic intelligence solutions, I mean things that should be common sense. Nobody was really that likable, tons of characters you hated. The budget must have been poor too, the animation was alright at times but mostly it was sub-par, sometimes downright bad. The occasional bit of humor was usually bad, relying on grossing the viewer out. The nudity and sex were shoed in and didn't need to be in there, felt very forced.

So, in short, they took an awesome concept and somehow messed up pretty bad. The only reason it managed a 5 (very generous of me) was because it was at least entertaining at times. It had action, blood and guts, even the nudity could be entertaining for obvious reasons (although the sex scenes were just bad, always had the guy's ass in it, and you hate the guy anyway so you're booing him for getting laid).

Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 06 March, 2010, 07:31:56 pm
Alright, after many delays I finished Baccano!

Biggest problem was how much it switched. We had different locations in different timelines with two main settings but there was also the most current timeline that talked about the previous timeline and... man. In its defense I managed to keep up but at times it felt like a chore, like I had to force myself. Also way too many characters and subplots. So much happening, and of course all the subplots weave in and out of each other so you have to pay attention to all of them at once. Some characters got enough screentime to be fleshed out and enjoyable, but most had their subplots featured in maybe 2-4 episodes. So many you kinda like but they weren't on screen enough to know.

Humor worked well, gore and violence worked well. Ladd was a tad too over the top for my taste but not too bad. Isaac and Miria stole the show, they probably got the most screen time but they really were the most enjoyable characters.

Overall, a low 8/10. It was enjoyable but I found myself confused too often for my liking, I dislike switching plots and settings around as much as it did, and it tried to cram too much into 13 episodes for me.

Also, SHUT THE **** UP JACUZZI

Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 29 March, 2010, 03:05:31 am
Done.

Alright, the positives first. I really liked the concept, the whole elements being used to fight monsters in an alternate Earth, etc. Great animation, very well done and colorful. Some art choices are odd and iffy (the hell is with the girl's eyelashes/eyeshadow? And why were the vehicles they get so lame looking?) but most of the monster designs were cool. Action was decent, not really great but not bad. Music was surprising good, excellent really, except they remix the OP song for every scene that needs dramatic BGM so it starts getting old.

Negatives...

The god damn **** characters. I had a hard time tolerating these morons. Ren is the typical stupid energetic kid you want to punch in the face, Chiara needs slapped, maybe that'd knock some **** out of her, Homi needs to grow some **** balls (sometimes literally, I thought he was a girl at first >_>), Juno is drenched with "loli freaks, please adore me even though I have an annoying as hell voice and I force trying to be cute!", Rodney is a prick, Tom is an ****, and Hanna is the worst of the bunch, somehow combining preppy spoiled girl with angsty emo drama.
Also, it's clearly geared for a young audience. Stupid lines, humor you'd be embarrassed to laugh at, etc. Plot started off alright but by the end it gets to the point as if it went through Star Trek logic to try and explain things and make excuses as to why things will work certain ways. Ending was pretty stupid as well. (Let's just say they go to "the 11th dimension" >_>)

But as much as I hated the characters, it did have some enjoyable action scenes, and it starts off alright. There were even some enjoyable characters, granted they were minor and not great or anything like that. There was clearly a lot of work put into it. Kinda between 5 and 6, but I guess it barely squeaks out a 6/10.

Oh yeah, OP has great visuals but not liking the song. Meh. First episode was pretty good, action scenes were excellent but Ed still has his annoying "I hate being called short" running gag and Ed Al sounds less like a little boy and more like a little girl.

The dub isn't anywhere close to finishing, just so you know. First opener is probably the first best. That gag is not nearly as prevalent in this version. And I'm assuming you mean Al, because Vic Mignogna is a beast.

Damnit, I'm constantly getting their names mixed up. Obviously meant Al, Ed's voice is pretty damn good.
Also damnit, I was so thrown off by the fact the dub's airing before the sub's finished that I forgot it'd take longer. I'll have to switch to sub when I get to that point.

I wonder what will happen when the three friends find out that each out them are the leaders of their rival gangs.... Plus there's the cops too which is lead by that **** guy....

New OP. Not as good as the first, song's too slow paced and even the action scenes seem drawn out and "stylized" more than good old action...

I was surprised by the number of OP switches in the show. I kept hoping one would be better than the first one, but none of them were, in my opinion.

I don't remember which it was, but there's an ED much later in the show that's just kickass.

I already told everybody that and they didn't listen.... BIZZLE doesn't count because he'll watch everything anyway....

But there was the OVA not so long ago.... Okabe in America.... Funny Engrish.... Daru's future wife....

I haven't heard much about that movie but I hope it's based on the γ time line.... You should listen to the subbed drama CD of that if you haven't....

Yeah it was subbed a few days before your post.... So given the timing it wouldn't have been in any batches you could of downloaded for it....

Also the bonus material has been put on Reading Steiner's youtube account....

Berserk is a tad odd.

Casca is on her period every single episode.

Watched Welcome to the NHK. Twas quite funny although at times my patience for the characters grew thin (particularly at the end), and that pyramid scheme arc was booooooooooring.


Title: Re: Just keeping track of what anime I've seen
Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 14 April, 2012, 04:05:40 pm
Meanwhile, I saw Princess Mononoke, Nisemonogatari, and... Higurashi Kira (god damn completionist in me).

Princess Mononoke was pretty good, fantastic visuals and characters. Well, main character got a bit too goody-good for my tastes at times but besides that. Movie suffered from a common issue I have with anime movies in general, a lot happening without enough time to build things up. Leads into how I found the Miyazaki movies to have an issue of introducing fantastic characters/senerios/scenes and moving on when I wanted more of that one character/senerio/scene.
8/10

Nisemonogatari was pretty similar to the first season (Bakemonogatari), although the ecchi was far more incestuous and thus creepy... that toothbrushing scene... anyway, didn't like the newer characters as much, some scenes dragged on too long without delivering many laughs. Humor overall was solid though.
7/10 

Kira was terrible. Hilariously terrible, but not in a so bad it's good way. More like a "oh god are they really going there, who the eff greenlighted this..." way. I never want to see Rika in a too-small-for-her ecchi outfit washing windows with her buttcheeks ever again.
3/10

Miyazaki doesn't have any problems at all with his work if his main problem is that you always want more.

Also...Kira what.

Well seeing as I want Jake to read it I'll spoiler it.... After a few pages of decribing one single panty shot Ararararagi gets from Hanekawa he goes to buy **** and on the way back finds Shinobu/Kissshot limbless and dying.... He offers his life for her because Ararararararagi has no friends at this point.... She takes pity on him and makes him a vampire.... He wants to be a human again so Kissshot says if he gets her limbs back from three vampire hunters she'll turn him back.... Oshino helps him do that by setting up fair one on one fights with them.... He gets them all back and it's at this point Shuraragi relises he helped a vampire which means more people will die at her hands.... So he goes to kill her in the end but it turns out that's what she wanted.... And everything makes sense after that.... However Mururagi doesn't want to kill her after this and decides to make it so she's to weak to kill anyone while he's not quite human.... So nobody is quite happy in the end....

Post by: GameFreak_Jake on 07 May, 2012, 04:13:10 pm
Finished. Beautiful visuals, good music, good atmosphere, and good characters. Too bad every single episode is self contained and there's no main plot to keep any interest. Also after so many episodes you see trends and can usually predict how things will turn out because they recycle a few plot points. For example, if there's a young married/engaged couple, one of them is gonna die, almost guaranteed. I think there was one time it didn't happen, but she disappeared and the guy had to "marry" her when she wasn't visable and it took her forever to return to normal.

7/10 overall. By fair the most episodic anime I've ever seen.

Something with a main plot. >_>
I can handle episodic animes so long as there is a core plot, with character development and such. This was the first anime I've ever seen where you could randomly pick the order of the episodes and lose very little, if anything at all. Not my style at all, that's all.

FLCL didn't make me laugh at all and had some truly annoying characters. Generally a bad thing for a comedy, and I didn't get/relate to the "coming of age" part of it.

Oddly enough Bokurano has some really annoying characters as well but it handles it far better in my opinion. Granted half of that is because it kills off most of them early on, but also because you're suppose to get a variety of people in Bokurano, compared to FLCL's entire main cast being obnoxious.

NOT LIKING FLCL IS FINE. I CAN SEE HOW YOU COULD THINK THE CHARACTERS ARE OBNOXIOUS, OR HOW YOU COULDN'T RELATE TO THE COMING OF AGE THEME (ACTUALLY I DON'T SEE HOW ANYONE COULDN'T RELATE TO THE "I WANT TO BE SEEN AS MATURE DESPITE JUST BEING A KID" THING, BUT IF YOU'RE OLDER I GUESS IT'S JUST IRRELEVANT NOW). BUT YOU HAVE TO ADMIT THAT NAOTA, AT LEAST, IS ONE OF THE MOST MULTIFACETED AND WELL WRITTEN CHARACTERS EVER, AND THAT ALL THE CHARACTERS HAVE A PURPOSE WHEN IT COMES TO THE OVERALL THEME. AND YOU ALSO HAVE TO ADMIT THAT THE THEME WAS COMMUNICATED PERFECTLY BY THE SHOW, IN THAT EVERY FACET OF THE SHOW WAS DEDICATED TO FLESHING IT OUT. BASICALLY, IT'S FINE IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, YOU JUST HAVE TO ADMIT IT'S GOOD DESPITE THAT.

AND BASICALLY ANYONE WHO KNOWS ANYTHING WILL TELL YOU THAT THE ORIGINAL FMA TURNED TO **** ONCE IT DIVERGED FROM THE MANGA. ONLY PEOPLE WHO LIKE "OH SO DARK AND EDGY SUPER MATURE" AND PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T SEEN ANY ANIME THINK THE ORIGINAL IS BETTER THAN BROTHERHOOD. UNFORTUNATELY, IT'S BEEN TOO LONG SINCE I'VE SEEN IT TO ACTUALLY DEFEND MY SCORE WITHOUT RESORTING TO INSULTS BECAUSE I DON'T ACTUALLY REMEMBER ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

AND GIANT ROBO ISN'T AS POLARIZING AS FLCL, ANYWAY. NOT LIKING FLCL IS UNDERSTANDABLE. I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYONE SAY GIANT ROBO IS BAD.

Growing up I never had an issue with wanting people to see me as mature. I saw myself as a kid and didn't expect people to think of me as otherwise.

He was a decent character, the least annoying of the main cast. Multifaceted and well written? Eh, sure, I don't think he was that spectacular but I've got nothing to argue against it. Having the characters set to the theme and fleshing it out doesn't mean much when you're unimpressed by the theme, so no I don't have to admit it's good. I found it highly over rated and the amount of praise given to its supposed depth is silly to me.

FMA wasn't nearly as good near the end but it wasn't that bad. Who brought up Brotherhood? Brotherhood is better, yes, but that doesn't mean the original is terrible, some of the best parts of Brotherhood are in the original anyway, the only thing Brotherhood did far better than the original in my opinion was the ending and the homunculus.

WELL FROM THE PLETHORA OF "I'M ONLY 13 BUT I LISTEN TO COOL OLD PERSON STUFF LIKE METALLICA AND THE BEATLES INSTEAD OF THAT SUPER DUMB JUSTIN BEIBER CRAP" COMMENTS ON YOUTUBE, I'M GUESSING IT'S A PRETTY WIDELY RELATABLE THEME, BUT EH, IF IT DOESN'T APPLY TO YOU THEN WHATEVER.

JUST BECAUSE YOU PERSONALLY CAN'T RELATE TO A THEME DOESN'T MEAN IT'S BAD. REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOUR OPINION OF THE THEME ITSELF IS, IT'S EXCEPTIONALLY WELL EXECUTED. AND A THEME ISN'T SOMETHING THAT CAN BE INNATELY GOOD OR BAD ANYWAY. LITERALLY ANY THEME CAN BE DONE WELL, AND SHOULD BE JUDGED BASED ON ITS EXECUTION.

AND I DON'T REALLY THINK SOMETHING CAN BE CALLED OVERRATED BASED ON PERSONAL PREFERENCE. JUST IMAGINE IF SOMEONE CALLED MONSTER OVERRATED BECAUSE HE HATES DOCTORS, OR IF SOMEONE CALLED COWBOY BEBOP OVERRATED BECAUSE HE HATES JAZZ. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.
