    Let's Talk Anime

    As you all (should) know, I'm pretty big into anime, so I thought I'd make a thread about it.

    What better way to start with my favorite? Locodol! Why do I like it? Comedy, slice of life, upbeat, and most of all --

    It's so moeeeeeeeeeeeee

    But yeah. Weeaboo discussion, starto!
    Smite is an online multiplayer game. You can't have immediate gratification simply by starting the game. The ground is even. There's another player on the other side. You are not entitled to having everything favoring you at every time. If you don't like it, by all means, go back to the 1-shot-kills-all Aliens: Colonial Marines singleplayer.

    I do old school anime myself.... DBZ, Yu Yu Hakasho, Gundam, Teen Titans, Avatar the last Airbender, Dragonball, Sailor Moon, Soul Eater...
    Idk. I'll rarely watch a new anime. A lot of them are too tacky for my tastes these days and just recycle the same concepts.

    The unfortunate thing about being a writer and a heavy self-critic is that I do my best to try and be different from other source materials, so I heavily scrutinize other people's works to see if I can find trends that I've seen before. Unfortunately, a lot of anime these days follows the same, tired, boring clichés that just don't awe me like they used to. Rare formulae like the previously listed things that I still do watch, are some of the rare acceptations that I take into account.

    I was just thinking about creating a new anime thread after I reread the old one.

    I just finished watching Magi, which was alright. And now I'm rewatching all of the Ghost in the Shell episodes.

    I used to be really into anime, but I more or less grew out of it. Nowadays I might once in a very great while rewatch Evangelion, or try to catch up with the latest dubbed episodes of Naruto (Sorry, I just can't stand the original voices), although given I'm like 30 episodes behind clearly I haven't been paying attention. Also waiting on Dragon Ball Z Kai to finish up to the Buu Saga, and for Rebuild of Evangelion to be finished.

    Hmm. I liked old Dragon Ball, DBZ was good too, and was honestly one of the reasons I started martial arts as a very small child. Although I have yet to fly, or shoot energy attacks! I am a fan of the 3 eyed Tien from that show. He just strikes me as awesome.

    Trigun, and Cowboy BB after being made to do so by someone I know, and they are good.

    I think the very first Anime I watched on my own was Full Metal Alchemist. I had been traveling, and in the room I was staying in I had flipped on the tv, and decided to watch w/e was on before I went to bed. It was a 2 part special of the 1st 2 episodes of FMA, and I was hooked.

    Avatar was good, but I heard the follow up wasn't so I steered clear of that one. Toph was my favorite in that one, and the Boulder of course.

    I really like Gravity Falls an entirely large amount. It's funny, witty, and has tons of hidden jokes, and things in the background, and in what the characters say. Grunkle Stan is incredible, and what every old person should aspire to be, and it's refreshing to see a pair of siblings who actually get along most of the time, and really care for each other.

    I watched another show, but I can never remember it's name. It reminded me of DBZ, and had a protagonist who had like a finger gun attack, or something. I remember watching a lot of it, and thinking it was amusing. It also had a blue haired angel of death on a broom I think?

    I started watching Bleach, and at first it was pretty unique, and then it got very weird, and dumb very quickly, but I have this weird sort of loyalty to things, and so I have to see how it ends, and so every few months I try to see what's going on just hoping it's over so I can be done with it.

    That's about it for me.

    I loved FMA. Brotherhood was the second series I watched, and I think that's the one that got me into it.

    I started with the older series (around 2000) and went up to more recent anime. I personally find the motifs to be quite funny and seeing something happen can remind me of a show I saw before.

    Old Stream anime were unique in its flavor back then.

    Now it's the usual Shounen flavor and Ecchi anime flooding the market for some reason. I think the authors need to rethink their game plan again I mean ROD (Read or Die) one of my favorite classics had a good bit of everything.

    I would love to see Akumetsu be made into an anime, but the fact that it uses actual politician's image and the other one where anime studios tend to butcher the original concept design might not work so well.

    Here's the first episode. This show was my shit.

    I can't say I like ecchi/harem anime. It's quite unpleasant. I like comedy the most.
