    Not really into anime, but....

    I got really into the Gundam series when I was 11 or 12, watched it only for the fact that giant robots are awesome. Started re-watching it again (i watch one or two series a year in a binge) when I was 20 or so and I've realized how truly f*cked up their storylines are. I've watched pretty much all of the UC era save for Gundam X (and XX) and F91. Also have seen all of SEED and SEED: Destiny, all of Wing, G, and AGE. AGE in particular gets a bad rap but i thought it was pretty neat. Have yet to see Turn A, though.

    Very refreshing, though, to see something cool with a very dark and realistic tone (i.e the story of a war told from both sides with an innocent person thrown into the thick of it for no good reason).

    And obviously, because giant robots are awesome. I've dabbled in other mecha anime (BigO, Neon Genesis, Macross, etc...) but never really got into it.

    I'm more into manga than anything, though I recently watched a series called Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and it was one of the greatest things I've ever seen. I'm also looking to get into another one called Little Busters.

    Did you literally watch the entirety of those series you mentioned or skipped the filler? Those shows have a lot in them (especially Naruto, Bleach, and DBZ).

    I have literally watched every single episode of all those animes except for Naruto, when I stopped watching about halfway through Shippuden.

    I don't like watching anime's in english usually, so I'm usually ahead by quite a bit by the time that they get dubbed over to english. :razz:

    I did watch deadman wonderland, and that was alright, I think they could have developed the story a lot more. the end was also kind of different. that is the first show I have watched though that had scenes in it blurred like every ten minutes, very violent.

    See that was an anime I really enjoyed! I definitely feel like they could have developed it a ton more and made it way longer though. It was surprisingly violent, but it amazed me on what they were willing to show vs what they filtered out. Strange stuff haha.

    I grew up on the anime movies.

    Akira, Ninja Scroll, Monster City, Wicked City, Cyber City, Ghost in the Shell, Platlabor, Appleseed among others

    I have got every episode of Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball GT also.

    Also, The Original Generation One Transformers The Movie.

    I don't watch too much of the new stuff.

    Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of titans.

    Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single titan and take revenge for all of mankind.
