    Started watching Neon Genesis Evangelion, it's older than me but it's decent so far:lol:
    The original anime series starts off well, but you will see a deterioration in narrative as the series progresses, mirrored by the fact that the creator was going through a mental breakdown (The End of Evangelion movie is probably as bad as it gets, good luck understanding that one).

    If you can, try the Rebuild of Evangelion series, which at the moment is a series of three films based on the plot of the manga, anime and some entirely new material (the 3rd movie deviates quite a bit).

    I have a massive soft spot for Evangelion, it was one of my first animes, and despite all the pretension, I eat it up every time.

    I'm really enjoying Psycho Pass season 2 at the moment! Akane has become a far more interesting character this season too:

    loved the latest episode when she was basically telling Sakuya 'b***h please, I know what you're doing.'


    I was in Japan a few weeks ago where it was being promoted quite heavily in Akiba, even got myself a chibi Akane figure for my desk :cool:

    Good sports anime?
    I second that motion! I'm currently watching it! I just think it's so fun! The feels, the fun times, the stupidity. Definitely check it out! High School Baseball.
    Has taught me quite a few things about the game (had no idea of anything. I thought it was a lame version of rounders lol)

    I'm not a huge fan of baseball but I'll give it a shot in the near future.

    A couple of friends are in the process of starting up a business selling anime figurines and merchandise, and are looking for feedback from anyone who's ever imported such things from Japanese sites. Or just feedback in general, really. So if anyone has a spare minute to look at this short survey, it'd be greatly appreciated.

    Finally got around to starting to read my pile of 20th Century Boys and have been absolutely blown away by it. Have read 6 volumes so far and it's one of the greatest manga series I have ever read. The plot is incredibly detailed and intricate without ever being too confusing. The fact Urasawa can jump between time periods with no warning and I am still able to perfectly follow what is going on is pretty amazing. Only 1/4 of the way through but hoping it can keep up the quality for the rest of the series.

    No :/
    I am still without my phone, and that has all my list on
    Bar two nights ago, I hadn't watched any anime for a month or so... Probably longer. Trying to finish Chuno before christmas. 1hr long eps are great but so time consuming!

    If you want to keep your memory of the show as a happy group of friends playing baseball then don't watch it

    I doubt I could stay concentrated on a show for an hour:lol:

    That'd be Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, almost certainly - Mahou Shoujo on its own just means magical girl. :p:

    Ikr... Somefolk are graduating... New characters will be introduced and it's Key... They always go to say, heart wrenching times lol

    Hour shows are cool! I watch Sherlock (BBC) and Doctor Who (BBC) so I'm used to em. But most of all, I grew up with martial art movies and westerns so I'm used to long showings lol. 10-20min eps are refreshingly short lol

    Currently enjoying Michiko and Hatchin. Very cool anime, reminds me of cowboy bepop whilst the art reminds me of samurai champloo - a good combination to have!

    Np glad you enjoyed it.

    You should watch "Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso" which is simulcasting right now if you liked it.

    That last scene, "I'll stay here so that my heart doesn't freeze.":cry:

    Ooh, I've been watching that recently! It feels very assured, very confidently-made, and it's fun to watch if not always very cheerful.

    Okay, so watched the Psycho Pass 2 finale yesterday:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    It does make me wonder if the third season, assuming there is one, will end with Akane walking the BIG Bad (in this case, 2 BIG BADS) to the Sibyl System. Only for Sibyl to be all like 'K-thanks Akane for not getting me killed, stuff's gonna change but ya know, we don't have the processing power yet... Your patience is much appreciated though!' :rolleyes:

    That said, I enjoyed the series, I just found the ending a bit anti-climatic.

    Granted it's been a bit slow, but having played the interactive novel, I have quite a bit of patience for Fate Stay Night: UBW (if you want the short version, just watch the very rushed 2010 movie by Studio Deen). Although the amount of repetition is a bit annoying, mainly Shirou feeling the need to declare 'I WANNA BE HERO OF JUSTICE' every bleedin' episode.

    The latest episode had some funny moments though, it's definitely a lot more light hearted in places than Fate Zero. Almost makes me want another series of Carnival Phantasm.

    Akame Ga Kill was on some serious drugs last week. Are they trying to piss off their fanbase?

    And episode 12 of Garo was rage inducing. The creators are probably friends with the akame ga kill staff

    WOW THAT WAS CLOSE, I nearly read your comment by accident. I am still 3 episodes off. I can't wait to see the end! I can't believe that it's this short though, I mean I really want it longer! Psycho-pass is one of my fav anime!
    I wish kagome is back!
