    Yeah yugioh can get kinda repetitive, especially when the main character keeps using their ace monster every duel. If you do wanna start watching it again, I recommend watching 5Ds as it's slightly better than the original. Also watch it subbed as the music is way better.
    Never watched it subbed to be honest as I started watching it before I got into anime properly, may give it a spin although the english dubs were generally good. Hmm not really my show anymore but shall bear it in mind I think my fondest memory of Yu Gi Oh was the tournament on Pegasus' island albeit very dragged out.

    The lunch box scene in Hataraku Maou-Sama Ep 7 was epic!

    The thing is, you still get those unexpected twists and revelations in the manga. It's not like the medium really changes any of that, unless you have a stronger preference for anime over manga. From what I've read and heard, the anime is also behind schedule, so there's every chance that the final act will be somewhat rushed; all the more reason to read the manga, because Isayama isn't quite as rushed as the anime staff and the quality is consistent.

    Personally, I think it's better to be aware and familiar of source material, more so when it is readily available. Whether it's a manga, light novel, visual novel, etc. I enjoy it all the same. Totally agree about being less inclined to nitpick, which can detract from some enjoyment of adaptations.
    True, although I was working off the assumption that he's planning to watch the anime anyway. So far, the anime adaptation has proven to be equally as good, if not arguably better when you consider the genre. Animation, voice acting and a soundtrack has a way of enhancing the experience, especially when it's done really well, which is the case here, for the most part. Of course, this is just my opinion, and the manga is very good. As you say, it's a matter of preference. I just feel that for a series like this, it's far more effective. In any case, I digress. There's also something to be said of having to wait in anticipation each week. Reading the manga in bulk, only to watch the anime after in a similar fashion removes that. As someone who has mostly read manga and watched anime as and when it comes out, the anticipation is part of the excitement and enjoyment.

    Been trying to get back into Eureka Seven. Does anyone know when the plot gets going? 13 episodes in and I'm getting bored!

    That aside, I've been watching soukou no strain as well. Really recommend it to anyone looking for a good sci-fi anime

    E7 has already been dropping little bits of its plot in the thirteen episodes you've seen, but things don't really come to a head in terms of the overarching plot until much later, from what I remember.

    Kudos for watching Soukou, while I wouldn't call it an absolute classic I thought it did a few interesting things, and like a lot of interesting but small titles from the past it seems to be largely ignored nowadays.

    Guess I'll give it some more time then or I'd feel like I'm missing out, given all the high ratings!

    Any other really good military/mecha themed anime (with some romance as well) in recent years that I should watch? They're all I've been watching recently :bandit:

    Hmm, off the top of my head... from the last ten years or so you could try Zegapain, Macross Frontier or Heroic Age. Oh, and Gundam Unicorn has been pretty solid fun and is very well made, though it's not finished yet. Xam'd: Lost Memories was pretty neat in some respects but rather dropped the ball as it went on, if you ask me. And if you want something utterly silly either Aquarion Evol or Godannar might fit the bill though in rather different ways (Godannar is aimed at bored salarymen who remember older mecha shows, from what I could work out). This list isn't exhaustive.

    its worth it imo, 2nd series was pretty much a train wreck but it managed to pull itself together quite well in the end :yes:

    Yeah, I think Heroic Age is pretty fun. It kind of sank without trace because it aired at the same time as Gurren Lagann, IIRC.
