    Anime I marathoned this long weekend:

    Eiyuu Gaiden Mozaicka - Good grief, this was boring. Generic plot, zero character development. At least it was short. 1.5/5

    School Rumble - Enjoyable enough, but either the manga was better, or the jokes just weren't as funny second time around. :s: 3/5

    Chobits - A good adaptation of a half-decent manga, but no amount of nostalgia could make it look like a masterpiece. 3.5/5

    Jinki: Extend - It started well, but the pacing was atrocious. Then it stopped making sense. Would not recommend. 1.5/5

    Banner of the Stars II - The highlight of the weekend, though even that wasn't as good as the two earlier series from the franchise, IMO. 4/5

    While in Reading, I bought Hidan no Aria on DVD (it was the only reasonably-priced full-length series I hadn't seen), Strait Jacket, and The Disappearance of Haruhu Suzumiya movie. I also bought the first seven volumes of the Twin Spica manga - £2 each in a charity shop, and they're as good as new! :zomg:

    ...Which means that the pile of unread manga by my bed now totals 30 volumes. Several of which are actually multi-volume omnibuses. :afraid: I'm banning myself from buying any more until I've cleared at least half that amount. :sigh:

    I was staying with my grandmother, she has no internet. Hence the huge older-anime marathon. Believe it or not, I also found time for socialising, shopping, a pub quiz, meals and sleep. :p:

    The marathon doesn't end there, either, since I've got all this weekend's new anime releases to catch up on. 14 episodes, I make it.

    For new anime, I recently started using AniChart.net, which lists all the series that are currently airing this season (Summer), and those that are due to start airing in the next few seasons (Autumn series in October, and Winter series in January).

    For popular series, there are several sites that rank anime based on average user ratings. Personally, I use Anime-Planet, though My Anime List is a popular alternative.

    Anyone got any recommendations? I've been watching Naruto for so long and the only other anime series I've watched is Deathnote (ridiculously good). I've heard about Bleach and one piece but I've gotten mixed reviews on them. Tell me your favourite!

    For me, best long anime series = Fairy Tail!
    Although, a list of anime I would recommend would be the following;

    My Bride Is A Mermaid
    Hikaru No Go (Currently watching, on episode 51 atm with another 20 eps left to go) - Based on a game called Go, you pick it up but mostly watch it for slice of life anime.
    Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
    Dog Days
    Eden Of The East

    Just a few, literally have to go now.

    Hey Otaku,

    Could anyone suggest an Anime similar to GTO, School Rumble. Basically an epic ecchi comedy ?!
    I watched School Rumble this weekend, and wouldn't call it ecchi. :p: Still, here's a few to consider.

    Same Sometimes Watamote is so cringey it's difficult to watch, but it's still too funny to drop as a series.

    Yeah, I found it a bit boring too. But it gets better after Rider gets involved in the story. The end was kind of confusing but it was much better than Zero.
    I will probably finish it later on but holding it off for now.

    No problem.

    Fate/Zero ending spoilers:

    I assumed the same as you, that it was because Archer/Kirei came 'second' in the Grail war, so after the Grail was destroyed by Kiritsugu and Saber, it resurrected them and granted their wish instead. I might be wrong, but it makes sense. Shame to let a good wish go to waste. :p:


    I don't know whether you saw the link last time I posted it, but ufotable (the animation studio that made Fate/Zero) are working on some sort of Fate/Stay Night project. No idea whether it'll be a movie, OVA or TV series, or whether it'll be a full remake, but hopefully whatever it is will be more coherent than Studio DEEN's Fate/Stay Night. There's a reason I didn't suggest you watch that first, it isn't brilliant. :no:
    Spoiler:

    Yeah, although Kirei's wish freaked me out :-P Can't believe it ended like that. The last few episodes were just really good


    That sounds really interesting! I wonder if a remake would level up to Fate Zero although so far I don't think the characters or sub-plots in Fate Night are as good as Zero's. But that sounds good :-)

    Haha I know, I just feel so bad for Tomoki I just want to give her a hug :hugs: I hope she does becomes better, but seeing as it's only a 12 episode series I don't think there's any chance of major character development. Ahh I'm still in for the laughs though!

    I swear the ad breaks/eyecatches in Mushibugyou get later every week. :hmmmm2: This time, it was 20 minutes and 40 seconds into a 23 minute episode... excluding the ED and next ep preview, the second 'half' was about 50 seconds long. :lolwut: Suppose it avoids interrupting the battle scenes.

    Guys, I am thinking of getting an anime canvas for my place when at uni. Have to admit I have always wanted one. =P

    Which anime canvas would you get if you could have one (if you want one) and which image/art would you get?
    I am thinking of choosing something from that art book from the limited edition release of Blue Exorcist. :excited:

    Where are you planning to buy your canvas from Science? I've been wanting to get some posters myself, but Amazon seems to be only filled with fabric wall scrolls and not the usual posters. I only used to get my posters from cons before.
