Just curious as if ttw has any anime fans?
Prince of Tennis is a pretty lousy anime. Basically, only 25 percent is actual tennis with the remaining 75 percent being stereotypical Dragonball Z super power fantasy bullcrap!
Slam Dunk which is a basketball anime from the 90's is VERY well done.
if you've completed the PoT series, the Live Action is even fancier... :twisted:
got back into Initial-D in recent months
Only one I've watched was Kenshin which was pretty good. Also saw the live action which was also pretty good.
Does avatar count even though it's american?
Anime i liked
Shiguri Death Frenzy
Now and Then, Here and There
didn't like prince of tennis,
also there are more but I can't remember, haven't watched much in a very long time.
One of my all-time favorite sequences in anime: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoIKJ6zE9rk
I wouldn't say I'm an anime fanatic, but I'm a big fan of One Piece.
Overall, I haven't seen many series, though.
I watch a lot of anime actually! It's something I do to pass my time!
name some good ones.
surprised no one mention any of the Gundam series.
don't watch much but my favs are
mobile suit gundam
heavy metal panic i , ii, III
ghost in the shell (didn't care about it too much, don't know why the hype?)
and my fav Ranma!
What I like? I've finished a couple of gooders over the last few years, and I'm still working on some...
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
Darker Than Black (My favourite!)
Prince of Tennis
Naruto / Naruto Shippuden
Those are some of the more popular ones I've seen, but I've liked them all for different reasons!
I'm secretly a Bleach fan.....
My secret shame is Naruto =(
i am old so I liked
gundam wing, kenshin and hack when I was a kid. (22 year old man child now.)
I just finished future diary on hulu. It was one of the best shows I have seen let alone anime.
We're in the same age group haha.
Hack is still one of my favourites of all time.
Future Diary? I cannot say I've seen that one. You have indeed piqued my interest!
for some reason the dark idea of taking out your friends to survive, just worked for future diary. I recommend it to all.
opening makes my spine shiver
That looks so exciting! It's next on my watch list once exams are done!
Have you checked out / heard of Dead Man Wonderland? It's sort of in the same vain, and I really dug it. It's a weird anime, but I highly recommend if a little bit of gore doesn't bother you!
I will have to take a look at it.
This is Mirai Nikki right?
I haven't watched it yet but i've seen various scenes on youtube. Anime is probably my 3rd biggest hobby behind tennis (duh) and Ping Pong.
Edit: NVM I looked it up.
Afro samurai I enjoyed and the video game as well
Black lagoon was good too.
Fairy Tale was great. Just ended.
Katekyo Hitman Reborn was AMAZING IMO.
Sword Art Online was AMAZING also. (SAO)
Naruto is good.
Bleach was good.
and many more to list. The Rurouni Kenshin live action was pretty dope.
The infamous tennis scene from Death Note: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pi_EsprA2iU
It's actually well-animated and engaging until they start talking about "shinigami".
There will never be another animation film as good as Spirited Away.
One's that I've watched and really liked
Hikaru no Go
Chrome Shelled Regios
Full Metal Alchemist
Thought Gunslinger Girl was ok
And probably a few more I cannot remember
No love for Hunter X Hunter?
IMO it's the federer of anime! ( goat I mean )
Also old but great stuff I used to read and watch : black cat, trigun, hellsing, shaman king, samurai deeper kyo
And of course the awesome Berserk
Did you watch ninja scroll?
Or even the incredible ova called Karas?
One thing that I hate about anime unless you read the manga, is that often times they lose funding and you only get to see one or two seasons. Kenichi, Chrome Shelled regios and a few others received rave reviews and have a good following but probably will never be continued because they aren't as commercial as Naruto and Bleach.
+1 for cowboy bebop and samurai champloo
Same author and animation studio
Great art work and superb ost
I've seen a few Studio Ghibli productions (Grave of the Fireflies, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and Ponyo), and seen a few others like Metropolis, Akira (which I was far too young for at the time :lol, some of the Animatrix shorts.
I've also seen a few TV series like Gravitation, and some children's cartoons from years back like Ox Tales and Peter Pan no Bōken when I was little.
Not many admittedly, but enough to get a taste of it.
I used to draw manga characters obsessively when I was a teen. Not very well admittedly :lol:, but I was enthusiastic at least. Manga adaptations of Legend of Zelda videogames in particular were a favourite of mine.

Anyone here remembers Ufo Robot Grendeizer?
oh my gossssssssssssssssssh. I just finished Attack on titan on hulu. It is by the same guys that did death note and is even better. 6/5 stars
Kino's Journey is worth a look.
Anyone watch FLCL? Pretty bizarre show. I stopped watching after the second episode.
haha I think I asked you this once, but never got a reply are you an education major or do you just like that quote?
I'm not an education major.
as you where then. I am and constantly reading about dewey, so was just interested.
I, on the other hand am in the faculty of education at my university. :razz:
Hmm... I see..
Well, that's good!
School is for losers.. :razz:
One of my recent favorite, Claymore:
Brings back good old memories.
I haven't watched any anime lately but some of those that I have watched are:
Gundam series (Seed, Mobile Suit Gudam Wing, G)
there is just so many, and you have to wade through all of them to find the dark good ones.
Claymore was fantastic.
same for Wolf's Rain!
I hate those anime shows that are heavily dependent on the female characters. In other words, breasts galore!
For example, Heaven's Lost Property.
Elfen lied is a great anime despite the blood and violence.
It has a great story, even though it is sad.
Another great anime is Berserk.
elfen lied was just strange in my onion, bunch of half naked super power girls going around killing for no real reason.
story lacked any real depth. attack on titian on the other hand has a crazy plot, that is worthy of the death note team.
they have set the bar even higher with this work.
