    Attack on Titan is ok, but I think SAO is so overrated


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Agreed! Although I've heard from a friend, who wasn't a huge fan of SAO but stuck with it, that the finale for the 2nd season was pretty good. (I heard the newer season became less and less about Kirito? This can only be a good thing in my opinion).

    I liked the concept and the setting of Attack on Titan more than the story (Eren was perhaps the least interesting character).

    The only anime I'm watching at the moment is Fate Stay Night: UBW. I might pick up Parasyte the Maxim, as that has proven popular, and maybe Tokyo Ghoul.

    Just spent the whole day watching Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun and Ōkami Shōjo to Kuro Ōji. Don't ask me why, but relationship/ shoujo/ comedy animes are the new black for me.

    Anyone know of Anime titles like them?

    I've not watched either of those, but if general shoujo rom-com recommendations will do, I quite liked Lovely Complex, Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge and Kimi ni Todoke.

    Yay! More titles! Thank you!

    Btw, if you like rom-coms then kaibutsu-kun is a good one. In my opinion anyway.

    Gekkan Shoujou Nozaki-kun! is one of the best I've ever seen. Rated very highly.

    It's good if you can get past the overwhelming ecchi levels. I liked the action and the characters, but my god the anime was borderline hentai at times. It's still good though, and I enjoyed the budding romance between the two main characters. So, if you like bewbs and action, go for it :yy:

    I should get round to trying that. Word on the street seems to be that Arise is a decent episodic techno-thriller, disappointing only in that it is only decent when it has a more-than-decent pedigree.

    Ghost in the Shell as a franchise is high on my priorities list for the coming year, as all I've watched is the 1995 movie. And that was when I was only just getting into anime, about all I'd watched prior to it was Love Hina and Princess Mononoke. Too much, too soon, looking back. :o: Definitely looks like my kind of thing these days, though. :p:

    The first series is in my Top 50 anime list, I loved it. I quite enjoyed the sequel too, though it wasn't quite as good. The ending was a bit rushed, and a lot of the new characters lacked depth or development (and some older characters got sidelined). Might have been better if it'd had two seasons worth of episodes to tell its story, like the original did.

    Yeah, I loved the first series, go it on bluray in fact. Haven't yet finished the second series because there's build fighters try which is ongoing, me distracting myself with 12-episode series and also the second series seems a whole lot darker.

    Thing is, they never touched on what happened to Kogami did they?

    First season is brilliant, second season takes the crown as my biggest disappointment of the year. I hated it.

    14 volumes in and 20th Century Boys is still blowing me away. So glad I waited until I had the whole thing before I started reading as having to wait for each volume would have been torture!

    Definitely going to be looking into more Urasawa once I finish it.

    The only anime I've ever walked out on. The idea was really good, but it just began boring me way too much after episode 20. The characters weren't that good to me, and one of the only two I liked died, which was the last straw. I thought I'd end up watching some epic police anime, but it just ended up being about this one criminal.

    Psycho Pass 1 & 2 spoilers ahead:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I think it was okay. It took a while to get going - I think around episode 9 or 10, once that weird girl stopped turning people into "art" - but it was quite interesting once it did. Another way of wording that would be that it got interesting once Makishima took a frontal role, though the scene with Kogami and the cyborg-shotgun-guy-whose-name-i-forget was also great.

    The problem for me was that there was this whole Kogami vs Makishima vibe but I never felt empathetic towards Kogami as the backstory there was skimmed over. The two of them were also only loosely connected: it was Touma(?) who killed Sasayama(?). I wasn't really sure of Makishima's role in that, but I guess he compelled Touma to do it. I can appreciate that Kogami wanted to avenge his friend even still but it just wasn't personal enough for me to feel emotionally invested in it. Because of that, Makishima's death felt very empty for me. I wasn't glad Kogami did it; I felt the opposite, if anything.

    The visuals, world, characters, etc were all great, but I just think it needed a better story to link all that together.

    Psycho Pass 2 was meh. The premise of the story was okay, but with only 11 episodes to tell it in, it all felt a bit rushed. And, again, it didn't really end; you have to feel like it can't end until they get rid of Sibyl.

    You're right that they didn't touch the previous story again, but it was a different studio so maybe they wanted to go elsewhere with it. I'm not sure how or why they'd really bring Kogami back into it anyway. He did get a brief moment in there when Akane was tripping balls.

    Great, hope it lives up to expectations for you! When I first watched ghost in the shell I didn't think much of it, but the more thought I put into it and the more I watched it, I realised how good it was/is, it's without a doubt one of my favourite works of anime, might have to watch all of them again sometime alongside ARISE

    Sounds like interesting stuff but then it IS GITS
    I honestly haven't heard anything about it till now, probably because I don't have much interaction with anime fans aside from this now since I hardly ever use MAL or any other forum I was on. I'm assuming you've watched plenty GITS then? If so, is there anything out there you felt was similar or just damn good like GITS is?
