The Anime and Manga Thread

posted by divisionten on - last edited - Viewed by 2.9K users

Since we've gotten to derailing the Post A Pic thread, best to start a new one.

Anyway, use this space to talk about your favorite anime and manga, your collections, recommendations, etc.

My top 5 Amine? (in no particular order)
Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Mushishi, Kino's Journey and Durarara.

Manga?
Detective Conan, Mushishi, Fullmetal Alchemist, xxxHolic, and +Anima (so sue me, it's my guilty pleasure)

I'm watching Mononoke and Bartender right now, I don't really have that large of a choice other than what DVDs I managed to bring with me. American streaming sites don't work here and our dorm's single tv set is currently on the fritz.

    I actually like Naruto.

    I like the manga well enough, and I've cosplayed Naruto three times as two characters, but I haven't gone anywhere near the anime. A couple years ago, I came to the conclusion that Toonami is where Shonen Jump goes to die.

    The anime, I really really tried. I finally stopped watching Shippuuden after the Pain Arc. And I even bared myself enough to watch and retain my seriousness after those horrible final fight scenes. But the fillers... They managed to kill my arrogance.

    Manga still goes kickass though, although it is a bit weird.


    I'm not a profound anime/manga follower truth to be told. I liked Death Note and I watched Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann with fair amount of amazement.

  • Hmm Fawful and I have a lot of similair favourites. The only difference is that by rule I don't watch Anime that is an adapation from a manga and DOESN'T cover all the content.

    And didn't you just major spoil Umineko by listing the villain? I haven't seen it myself but from what I understand it's partially a whodunnit.

    You always make me happy, baby, YEAH!

    @divisionten said: And didn't you just major spoil Umineko by listing the villain? I haven't seen it myself but from what I understand it's partially a whodunnit.

    No, it's not fully a whodunnit. It merely starts that way. And yeah, I guess I shouldn't say any of this as it is better to go into the series without knowing it's true plot, which I HAVEN'T spoiled here. I'm not a fan of gore, but I am a fan of horror in Victorian settings, and I like the concept of the series.
