    I'm forever having that issue, mostly because I hardly post outside of this thread, so I only encounter 'other members' when there are new people around.

    It takes ages to cycle round to let you do it again, don't worry about it. In the unlikely event that I ever manage to say anything worthwhile, people's thanks are enough
    Roger that!

    Even though I'm currently in Japan, I'm ironically struggling to watch much anime because my husband and I have opted to stay in a hotel instead of with my family due to our daughter. We figured it would be easier.

    However, the internet here is terrible. It's barely good enough to load pages, let alone download anything. Anime is shown on television, but I'm seldom around when anything airs. So, I've resorted to paying visits to my brother's place where I try to download as much as I can.

    I'll admit that I'm enjoying all of these action sci-fi harem anime this season. :giggle: I guess, if I were to compare them to anything, they're like junk food. I feel guilty watching them, but it's so good (for me, anyway).

    That's a surprise, my initial thought of Japanese internet access in a hotel is that of high speed/quality, perhaps you're in the countryside? Either way, lucky you, I'd love to see Japan!

    Well I'd say I typically like psychological.. romance and action

    But I don't really know much about the studios :sad:

    No worries First thing that comes to mind in terms of romance and action might not be the most romantic but there's hints of it present in Full Metal Panic which is an action based anime involving a fair amount of mecha usage in conflict zones in a nut shell. The main character sort of leads a double life and things are hectic but really enjoyable, it's pretty good stuff although it's a little old now but there is a season one and two each about 23ish episodes and then there's a 13 or so episode series which takes place between season one and two, this one's a sort of romcom, slice of life type of series.

    For action and psychological I'd say Black Lagoon is definitely an action packed series (it has two series and an ova) and if I remember correctly the main character as well as others do question themselves, their actions and those around them - it's based in a South American type setting of crime, the criminal lifestyle take is refreshingly unique for an anime.

    Another one to mention regarding action would be Jormungand, it's also got two series and is based on criminal lifestyle but this time it's about an Arms Dealer called Koko Hekmatyr and her team - they travel the world doing business and there's plenty of action that takes place as well. The cast just like in Black Lagoon are refreshingly realistic in terms of development and story, they evolve and aren't generic - they genuinely each seem their own person.

    I've not watched much romance but if there's something I'd recommend and I'm sure many others would too, it would have to be Clannad although chances are you've seen it, if so, the other work done by Kyoto Animation like Kanon might be worth checking out?

    *Edit: Tonari no kaibutsu kun and Lovely Complex are awesome romances, once more they are very comedic and so very enjoyable but they're also quite different and touch on different things aside from just focusing on a couple and their relationship and so in that regard they're both great.

    Welcome to the society!

    Based on what you've already seen and said you liked, I'd recommend Code Geass, Claymore and/or ef - a tale of memories. Or if you're looking for something that's new this season, Death Parade is of to a great start.

    [EDIT] Or any of the above, beaten to it. :p:

    I will publish my results this week, promise!

    I've decided to finish last seasons stuff and my xmas stuff at the expense of this season (bar Aldnoah Zero 2).

    Speaking of Aldnoah Zero (s2)...

    Surprise surprise they resurrected Inaho and the princess from certain deaths as expected. I'm somewhat annoyed they took the easy route and it'll impact on my feelings for the series. At least the music is good still.

    Yeah, generally speaking, the internet access is better in Japan, certainly in households, but I guess I was just unlucky this time around. I was actually in Tokyo as well.

    I'm from Japan, so I tend to pay a trip at least once a year to see family. I'm sure you'll have your opportunity to visit. I know it's almost every anime fan's dream to walk around Akiba.

    Assuming you haven't already watched them, I'd recommend any of the following:

    Baccano!

    Basilisk

    Ga-Rei -Zero-

    Tatakau Shisho: The Book of Bantorra

    Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis

    Thanks, I've heard good things about Baccano before so I'll go with that.

    I started watching Yowamushi Pedal and just got up to date. I have no idea whether I like or hate Midousuji:lol:.

    I'm rewatching Baccano! for the second time at the moment (literally just taking a break between the 5th and 6th episode to check for new posts :p:), and it is amazing. :yes:

    Midousuji Akira was my favourite villain from of all of last year's anime series - quite an achievement, considering some of the other villains actually killed people! Their facial expressions weren't as entertaining, though. :p:

    I'm starting it now, I like the OP

    His facial expressions are so creepy. Onoda and Tadokoro singing the Love Hime song while riding through the field is probably my favourite scene:lol:.

    Ok, I'm now up to date with all of my weeklies, so I've decided to give Kuroko's Basketball another chance. I did watch the opening episode of the first season and it didn't grab me, for some reason. Given that it's now received a third season, which is rated very highly, I must be missing out. So, that can only mean one thing, time to marathon.

    Kuroko's basketball is pretty slow to start but in my opinion it just keeps getting better and better. Season 3 is going to be amazing, I hope you begin to enjoy it.

    Oh right, that's cool, your English is really good btw, aside from your username I wouldn't have known you were Japanese.

    You're right about the Akkiba visit although strangely enough my interest in japan was long before I had ever gotten into anime - during my early teens I used to honestly think it was weird to watch "Chinese cartoons" - glad I came over the hurdle I was actually more interested in stuff like high speed rail technology, the Kobe earthquake recovery, high speed network tech and of course their games, most of this existed/happened before I was even born - I guess you could say my wikipedia adventures instilled an admiration for Japan.

    Apologies for my esoteric enthusiasm on Japan, are you from Okinawa? I like their accents
