Postby Zenthon » Thu May 14, 2015 4:55 am

post your fav anime and crap. yay.

Just started watching Fate Zero because I'm an anime noob who hasn't watched Fate Zero. It actually seems pretty decent. What have you guys watched lately that's been good?

The only animes I am watching currently are fate/stay night, assassination classroom and is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon. I watched 95% of hxh and then stopped and decided to rewatch it because its so good I want to watch those last 5% of eps when I want to get hyped. I am about 100 ep behind on naruto shippuden and one piece though I really want to marathon those 2 some day its kind of a catch 22 of I don't like being so far behind but I also don't like having to wait for one ep a week.

Fate zero is an amazing anime I would buy it if it wasn't owned by aniplex.

Its rather hard to say what my fav animes are lets try and do a loose top 10 that will probably really be anime in the top 25 that first come to mind in no real order:
hunter x hunter
fate zero
no game no life
REBORN
gundam series (to hard to pick just one they have ups and downs)
mushi shi
yu yu hakusho
code geass and death note ( almost the same story it feels like when you watch them side by side)
the devil is a part timer
full metal alchemist brotherhood

Code Geass was good.
Outlaw Star was better
Higurashi was best.


I can't tell what to think of Assassination Classroom - I don't "enjoy it" but I can't help but keep watching. On one hand, it's dumb as a bag of bricks, but it's got very funny moments, and it can be suspenseful at the same time.
I can't put my finger on what bugs me about it other than that it's just a bag of overused shounen tropes... and it knows it.

Dragonball Z was desc, they should've just ended after Cell Saga, that should've been it. The rest was cringeworthy, literally like going from Indiana Jones Last Crusade --> Crystal Skull cringeworthy. Buu was too ridiculous as a Villain to take seriously, and seeing Gohan go from where he left off as ssj2 to Saiyaman made me die a little inside.

I liked Bleach back in the day 'cause it moved a little faster than other shows like DBZ, Naruto and Inuyasha which tended to just draw their eps out and rehash things until I break my fast-forward button.

Oh yeah, Trigun and Cowboy Bebop were pretty good back then too. Cowboy Bebop at 26 episodes was a great series, the music and vibe between the characters really set the tone. Samurai Champloo was a pretty shitty anime, but it had pretty sick music and great fights.

To be fair, the manga was supposed to end with frieza, but Shounen jump dragged Toriyama back because it was the best selling series at the time.
... Kind of like Naruto, with all it's epilogue bullshit now-a-days, now that I think about it.

I now consider TFS DBZ Abridged to be the main cannon universe. The COE's who own the rights and what not might not agree.
But my opinion is the only important one.

Amazing.
Xan, putting DBZ on the same level with Naruto made me vomit. Pls stop.

Never said it was. Just saying it's a similar situation both content creators are facing.


It was more akin to saying "hey, both Watamote and Naruto have broodling loner archetype characters! Isn't THAT interesting." It's less a commentary on similar quality level and more just similar details to their composition.

Also:

This is why we can't have nice things.

The thing you are referring to is "deutrocanonical", rather than "canonical", - when a fan group creates something outside of the original authors intent and the fan creation is taken as equally canon as the original.
