Anime/Manga-fans here?

What dont you guys like about bleach?
I mean, sure 50% of it is filler, but if you just watch the actual storyline
episodes I think its pretty fantastic.

Do you read the manga?

The last chapter ruined it for me (Where Aizen explains everything)! :grrr:

Here here I’m a fan too!
My all time favorites mangas are:
Soul Eater
Elfen Lied

Cowboy Bebop;
The Rose of Versailles;
One Piece;
In Prison;
Dragon Ball (but not Z, much less GT);
Anything by Hideshi Hino or Suehiro Maruo.

Ever watch Hand Maid May? It’s Chobits before Chobits was around at a bit more light-hearted (yes, it’s possible). Quite probably my favorite harem anime short of Tenchi (which should be everyone’s auto-favorite)

I thought it was decent :tongue:
Of course it was one of the first anime I watched from start to finish…however looking back, the Knightmares started to get a little ridiculous in R2.

Anyhow, if I had to pick a top few: Fullmetal Alchemist (original and Brotherhood, though I think I prefer the latter), Goldenboy and Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I’m always looking for something new to watch…this list will probably be different in six months.

I watched Bleach till episode 222 (am going to watch it further again later on)

Now I just started with Naruto :content:

I’m on episode 173 of Bleach (as of this posting). I think that it’s awesome.

just started Elfen Lied and Monster

thinking of getting into Lain but it seems like baw for the sake of baw.

edit: forgot i started Denniu Coil (whatever it’s called) recently. I watched one or two episodes and it isn’t really pulling me in. It could have really done itself good to have just the slightest bit of exposition, or made a more interesting beginning. I’ll probably keep at it eventually.

Just saw this Ranma 1/2 episode:

Liked it!

So we can’t post our MAL profiles? Well…


-Serial Experiments Lain
-Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
-Aria the Animation
-Lucky Star
-Haruhi (both seasons. I loved Endless Eight)
-School Days
-Detroit Metal City
-Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei


-Dragon Head
-Battle Royale
-Dr. Slump (a classic! XD)
-20th Century Boys
-Ichi The Killer
-Katteni Kaizo

And more. XD

I’m sorry, I get a bit too excited when talking about this stuff and make lists far too long. Sorry!

I’d like to watch Clannad. Looks very, very good…and to everyone who is intrigued by Lain but not too much, I STRONGLY recommend it. :smile:

@Bruno: I recently bought a manga by Suehiro Maruo. I’ll read that soon. Looks great.


  • Berserk
  • Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood


Is it the creepy one about spirals? :eek: I didn’t sleep for a couple of days cause of it :bored:

Hell yeah, an Anime topic! :mrgreen:
Here are my personal charts:


  • Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (the plain old FMA show wasn’t bad either, but Brotherhood just deserves the top spot because it sticks to the Manga)
  • Death Note
  • Hellsing Ultimate OVAs
  • The Melancholy of Harumi Suzumiya (I heard there’s a 2nd Season?)
  • Fairy Tail
  • Bleach


  • Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Hellsing
  • Ao no Excorcist
  • One Piece
  • Fairy Tail
  • Bleach
  • Naruto

If I had to pick an overall favourite it would probably be FMA or Death Note. FMA is definately the best Manga I’ve read that’s ongoing at the moment. Out of the weekly Shonen, I’d have to say One Piece is the best, and the prize for the most hilarous I’ve watched would go to Haruhi!^^

Things I’ve started and/ or I have to pick up (again):
Elfenlied (read some chapters), Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Bamboo Blade (read some chapters)

Childhood memories :colgate: :
Dragonball (honestly, who of my age didn’t watch it?), Detective Conan (a.k.a. Case Closed in the U.S.), Inu Yasha, Pokémon

Just started Psyren!
Reminds me a lot of lucid dreaming!
Other Psyren readers here?

After finished watching Elfen Lied and had a good Anime break (I don’t see much anime I must admit, but I really like it, if I find the storyline interesting), I started watching Death Note and so far its going awesome, I really recommend it!

Death Note as about the best I’ve seen when it comes to highly intelligent characters. I don’t know how much you’ve seen, but the psychological warfare the main characters deliver is just incredible, every time they find a more amazing way to outwit each other, only to find out their rival was already a step ahead.

Agreed! Thats what I like the most! Though I’d wish that some semi-important characters would live longer :sad: but still its a great Anime! I’m currently in Episode 9, I still got a long way to go but so far its going great :content:

I’m so happy you guys are mentioning Death Note and Neon Genesis Evangelion. AWESOME shows!! Just looking at images from Neon Genesis Evangeliion (Eva) takes me back to being in awe of that series when I was watching it.

What’s that Neon Genesis Evangelion you speak of about ? I want to have another anime ready when I finish watching Death Note :happy:
