    Check out the last 10 or so pages of the "what are you watching now" thread. I've been watching nothing but anime for the past 7 or 8 weeks now and writing fuckloads about them. Favorites so far:

    Elfen Lied
    Ga Rei: Zero
    Gunslinger Girl (season 1 only)
    Death Note
    Baccano!
    Ghost in the Shell (everything)
    Darker Than Black
    and of course Cowboy Bebop. But I saw that years ago. These are recent favorites.

    Many more, but everything on the above list is a must watch as far as I'm concerned. Also all of them (aside for Bebop) are on Netflix instant (in english, except for Death Note, but the English dubs are good on all of them. In fact, they are pretty damn great in some)

    Fuck. Now that someone started an anime thread I'll have to migrate my ramblings here? Whatever.

    Currently watching Durarara!!, from the makers of Baccano!. Not as good as Baccano, but pretty damn great. Had a little Baccano crossover moment, and a Darker Than Black cameo as well. Nice touches.

    No, but the promo shots for it look TERRIBLE. If you're going live action, why make it look so anime-ish? Some times the Japanese get too weird even for me, and I put up with a lot of their oddities.

    GitS is a brainfull. You gotta be in the right kinda mood. Full Metal Panic was ok. Not really my cup of tea, but done well. I'm more of a fan of the serious shit, but if you like funny stuff, check out Baccano. The story is fantastic, and it's just funny and awesome.

    If you managed to follow Death Note, you shouldn't have a problem with Baccano (which is also a bit complex) and GitS.

    I would love to see a serious American version of Death Note on HBO or Showtime. If done right, it would be all kinds of awesome.

    Anime fucking stinks. SCREAM AS RANDOM DEBRIS FLIES PAST FACE. WHOLE BODY SHAKES WHILE POURING CEREAL. FIREBALL COMES OUT OF DICK AND KILLS SMALL ANIMALS. I don't understand the appeal of this over the top superficial awkward animation.

    I liked Ghost in the Shell, Akira, and a few others. I actually liked Afro Samurai as well.
    My wife goes deep with Anime; that's all she watches on Netflix.

    That's only the kiddie shit. Anime is a medium, not a genre. Picasso and Da Vinci both used oil paint, but disliking one does not mean disliking the other. There is plenty of serious anime that I've seen recently that blows every show on American television out of the fucking water. Better written, more original, and some of them have truly breathtaking animation.

    Seriously, Shooter - go read some of my posts in the what are you watching thread. You know me. Just see how apeshit I went over some of that stuff. You wanna tell me you'll dismiss it simply because of a misconception you have about the entire medium?

    It's what I've been doing recently. I've probably watched well over half of all their anime in the last couple of months.

    Bleach is fantastic when you erase the filler, Naruto is good too (I tried to avoid the shit out of it but eventually I gave in), Trinity Blood wasn't bad either, nor was Black Blood Brothers.
    There are a fuckton more I'm forgetting.

    Ive seen the adult stuff and the animation style is the same. I just hate the way its animated. It's choppy and indeed superficial kiddie shit or not. There was one ill admit I enjoyed that was made with 3d CG models which was smooth and did not feel like an Anime. But then the missiles started flying and it was back to MISSILE HITS. FREEZE FRAME. EXPLODE, SIDEWINDER WIND CARRIES SMOKE.

    By the way, if anyone gives a shit about my opinions, you can go to this link to see all the anime I've watched and ranked (not on a 1-10 scale. 10 is just the best ones, 9 is slightly less good, etc.).

    THIS IS NOT A PLUG. I have nothing to gain, nor do I write anything about it on the site itself. It's just a good list of stuff that's mostly on Netflix in case you're looking for something good to watch, and it's easier than sifting through pages of posts looking for something.


    I swear I was going to be calm about this, but you're pissing me off with your lack of knowledge. For fuck's sake - some stuff is cheap, and some stuff is quality. None of the stuff I rank as must watch has any of the cliches or bad animation that you talk about. To borrow a phrase from politics, this sounds exactly like the anti-anime crowd talking points, none of which are actually true. Dude, I have nothing to gain by defending anime. You have everything to lose by not watching the stuff I recommended. I know your taste. You're just shooting yourself in the foot.

    Don't watch much anime, but I got into Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Just waiting for Netflix to put the last part on streaming.

    Just started watching Claymore. Only 4 chapters in, but liking it so far.

    If you like Claymore you could also read the manga. It's REALLY good.

    Claymore is great once it really gets going. You're almost there.
