Any any anime fans ?
Me but I only watch the uncommon 13 episode ones. Made an exception for Naruto
I like anime
I love anime ! Recently I have been more into the most popular ones (Boruto, Attack on Titan). But I watched many other that are more unpopular, like Shiki, Another, Clannad, Bakemonogatari, Mirai Nikki, Little Busters, etc
I loved Shiki! I know it's not that popular but there was something about it that had me obsessed with it. Also it took me a few episodes to realise that it's based on Salem's Lot by Stephen King
The entire monogatari series is pretty surreal but in a good way, I guess.
I think everyone pretty much knows Mirai Nikki but it was amazing too especially because it actually had the non-stereotypical gay character towards the end.
I think I've really got a thing for underrated anime and manga like Shin Sekai Yori, for example. You know like the ones where protagonists don't yell out attacks before actually attacking. So in a nutshell, I'm allergic to Shounen.
Okay now I know no one cares so I need to stop turning this into some otaku discussion forum
You have good taste there mate hehe x). I didn't know that by the way (the Stephen King thing). But the human morals presented here is really interesting (things that we think are right or wrong, if actions taken are human or not).
Yeah... it is one of the reasons i'm very fond of this one. Sometimes it can be confusing... but the characterizations that defines the "anormalities" that appears in the characters are pretty interesting, because of being related with their psychological state.
Yes. I agree with that. He never considered himself gay, but he had this love for Yuki either way xD.
I never heard of that one. But I will check it out one day. I'll add to the watch list .
I don't see any problem talking about animes in this thread. xD
I do love animes but I'm not into the ultra popular ones like Naruto, One Piece and those, I do like some popular ones like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and I like animes which subvert certain genre tropes or do something interesting with the genre tropes. I'm also a fan a lesser known anime movie which is the Highlander: Search for Vengeance. It is probably for me the best Highlander film ever even when compared to the original.
I am very much into Yaoi anime cause to me it's like watching a gay fantasy play out, I like Ouran High School Host Club mainly because the dad character is treated with so much respect, I also like Sailor Moon especially for the ending, and yes the second last episode actually made me cry because as more Sailor Scouts join the team, the episodes actually feel a lot better since it's not just the monster of the week trope which I do tend to dislike because it gets slow with the monster of the week. I love Free: Eternal Summer just because of the OVA episode on the DVD, I love those cute episodes.
Here! I like anime, but so far I only watched few of them. Attack on Titan is my favorite.
Anime's a fairly recent thing in the household. It came by way of my younger brother developing binge-watching habits and spreading them to me during a get-together of his friends that happened to be in the room we share. This was how Kill La Kill, Death Parade, and Psycho-Pass came to my attention.
Now me and my brother have developed VERY different tastes on anime. For instance, I--being a lover of modernist and post-modernist (aka slightly pretentious) literature--enjoyed every nook and cranny of Neon Genesis Evangelion (okay, besides the original ending). My brother DESPISES it enough to say this about the Rebuild films: "Oh, a re-imagined better take on Evangelion? It already exists. It's called Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann. It's probably better because Hadeki Anno sucks at writing characters." Ditto for Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, which he says is "Too stupid even by anime standards." Given that he claims Gurren Lagann and Kill La Kill are his two favorite animes, I think my brother's definitely a hypocrite in that regard given that those two shows have their 'stupid' moments (even though they're awesome). I almost don't want to find out what his reaction to Madoka Magica's going to be like.
The only anime I can get is on Netflix and the selection in Ireland isn't great. There are more live action Asian TV shows than anime on it. Pokemon was always my favorite ever since I was little. I still like it. Vampire Knight was okay until the last couple of episodes where it got really weird. I watched some kids anime shows like Glitter force
