Anime/Manga

Postby kogane » Wed Feb 25, 2009 3:40 am

I'm a huge fan of Japanese anime and I was wondering if there was anyone who was also a fan. It mean it is a huge thing now, with more and more people getting into the fandom around the world. I may sound typical when I say that my favorite manga include Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn, Bleach, and D.Grayman, though they really are great Shonen Jump titles. I started liking anime when I was in elementary school with Sailor Moon, Digimon, and Pokemon. It's really influenced me to draw a lot and hopefully it really influenced others.

I have to say my favorite is Wolf's Rain, though I used to love digimon.
I am currently watching Ginga Denetsu Weed on youtube, which is VERY hard on dial-up *facepalm*.
I like anime, if you couldn't tell :loveeyes:.

Waow. We have quite a few anime fans in here.
Well here's my list of current anime if anyone is interested: Gintama, D.Grayman, Nabari no Ou, Axis Powers Hetalia, Bleach, Soul Eater, Claymore, Last Exile, Katekyoshi Hitman Reborn, Ouran High School Host Club, Lucky Star, Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Azumanga Daioh, Jigoku Shoujo, and Samurai 7.

I've seen others, but I'm a bit rusty on most of the other anime that I haven't watched.

I'm also quite fond of Card Captor Sakura, Ouran High school Host Club, Vampire Knight, Toradora, Axis Powers Hetalia, Loveless, Haibane Renmei, Code Geass and Gantz. I couldn't pick one single one as a favorite =3

Reborn isn't that good. You need to watch more anime =3

I recently watched the new Tsubasa OAV - it was great!

Spoiler:
I loved the part where Kuroname cut off his arm to stay with Fay, and how Fay criend when he thought Kaname was dead... and how Fay gave up the last of his power in exchange for Kuro's new arm. Cutest pairing ever =3 Especially seeing as how they used to hate each other.

And Vampire!Fay is smexy.

<333

I'm so glad they're making new OAV episodes =D

Ugh, I'm addicted to Reborn now. I know it's a terrible anime but I've gotten cuaght up in the fandom XD

Anyway, I was wondering how many AFCrs watched anime? I know of a fun game for the arcade, but the players would have to be anime watchers ^^

I'm sorry but one question:

WTF doe something happen in Code Geass that makes it suddenly good. Because I watched the first episode and thought "OUCH OUCH OUCH OUUUUCH- THIS IS HORRIBLE". And this was after a person i fandom stalk had ranted about loving it..so...so..so..

Why? What I saw was really really bad. Is that what is so good about it?

I don't watch anime any more, not avidly. Occasionally I'll get into one but I've got past the annoying phase of saying "LOLI'MGOINGTOLIVEINJAPAN" and saying "ISPEAKJAPANANEESEEE" I think I had that phase when I was younger, maybe, I hope not. >__>

My personal favourites are the ones I watched first. I.E- no matter how bad it is, Dragon Ball Z will always be my favourite anime. Followed by Gundam Wing. WHY? Because that's all I got to see on my OnDigital cartoon network. Then Ondigital went bust and we went back to the five channels because, no my parents were not getting Sky. Thank god for internets, who needs satellite?

So Dragon Ball Z, Gundam Wing, a creepy wee thing called Blue submarine or something. Those are my fondest anime memories- back from Toonami.

At one point I watched Gravitation, and I know now it was shite. The first few volumes of the manga are half decent though. For a yaoi.

Then I fell into the typical mould of loving Naruto. Hate me if you like, I feel no shame. Still follow the manga, and watch the important bits ofthe anime.

Then there are some that stick in my head: I never finished Inuyasha because *Groan* it was boring. I loved Wolfs Rain, but I don't think I watched the last episode after someone ruined the ending. That was wrong of them, I still hold it against them. I watched Ayashi no ceres briefly cause I heard there was a Scottish guy in it, but I lost interest before he entered.

Watched Full Metal Alchemist. Loved it. My third favourite.

Samurai Champloo was pretty brilliant, but seemed to be one of those shows that had SUCH a good start so not every episode followed through.

AND-OH- My guilty pleasure of all time that I don't feel even remotely guilty about. Trigun. I love Futuristic or Steam punk Western things. Didn't finish it though, but I will. I think I'll probably buy it actually.

I loved Death Note when I watched it. But I hate the whole "WE ARE SMART BECAUSE WE LIKE DEATH NOTE" fandom. So, yeah, I almost hate it now.

The only mangas I've bought were Saiyuki, which I love to death, and FAKE. Such an unrealistic manga but still one of my favourites. However if you are familiar with FAKE, I would recommend downloading NewYorkNewYork. It's another gay cop thing but, uh, kinda a bit more realistic. Has it's big flaws too but tis good IMO, and doesn't graphic sex scenes. That's always good, imo.

Oh well that was a long post after all.

BUt yeah, what's the deal with Code Geass.

IT'S OK

I DID NOTICE THAT WE HAVE DIFFERENT TASTES, I FOR ONE HATE DEATH NOTE. CAN'T STAND THE THING. i don't know about the rest you listed, never seen them.

BUT I FIND CODE GEASS NEAR ORGASMIC WTF. I THINK IT'S ONE OF THOSE LOVE IT OR HATE IT SHOWS.

MAYBE YOU CAN GO TO TVTROPES AND READ THEIR ARTICLES ON IT
