    Yep, great series, though a little depressing. One of my top 50 of all time. :yes:
    So glad I've finally found someone else whose seen and liked it! But you're right though, seriously depressing especially certain stories (Moji).Heard the manga was a lot more depressing/better but haven't read it yet

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for manga recommendation's. Something epic and long lasting with lots of character development would be great!

    Also, I started Rozen Maiden but found it extremely annoying after just 2 episodes. :nothing:
    Does it get better?

    Yeah, I've only watched the anime myself. The whole time I was watching Madoka Magica, all I could think was that it was pretty much Bokurano with magical girls instead of mechs. :p:

    Haha yes my thoughts exactly! Love them both so much though, although Bokurano probably got to me more with the fact that they were all so young and the events they've been through were just awful. That series just likes to crush every bit of hope!

    I'm no expert on manga, particularly long lasting series, but on the off chance I'd recommend the following:

    Gunslinger Girl

    Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle

    Rave Master

    Hope something there takes your interest.

    As for Rozen Maiden, I'd say it does get better once the antagonist is introduced (in episode 3 I believe), so maybe give it another couple of eps. Still, if you don't particularly like the main characters or setting so far, maybe it just isn't your kind of series. :dontknow:

    It's only Hina Ichigo and Jun's sister that I find unbearable. I guess I'll stick to it for a few more eps, since I've heard it starts off slow

    Shinsekai Yori is definitely my favourite airing at the moment (next to Boku wa). I love Chihayafuru 2 as well but for some reason, I'm not finding it the same in terms of enjoyment as season 1 was. Still think it's an amazing series though.

    By the way has anyone else ever seen/read Bokurano? No one seems to know about it
    I love you. <3 SSY is one of the best I've seen in a while. It's a shame not that many people watch it.

    Anyway, I just joined here and I was quite happy to see an anime section. =P And might I ask, what's up with the Tako Luka in the OP? xD

    I'm also watching Shin Sekai Yori. :yes: It took a while to build up, but right now I'd agree it's one of the best series airing.

    As for the OP... Most people are more shocked by Hard Mellow. :p:

    SSY is a solid series, I think people tend to not like it because of the intense world building it does. It's more driven by the world and plot rather than the characters imo. It's also one of those shows that could make a great book.

    You should.

    It starts as a pretty generic love triangle but quickly goes into much more personal conflicts like growing up and talent v hard work.

    Conflicting argument eh? Sounds like something i'd watch to be fair so may trial it with the first 5 episodes or so
