    One does not simply exclude Gintama:lol:. But yeah that's ridiculous, it's #1 after just one episode.
    :giggle: I should get around to marathoning it one day. But sequels do tend to do a lot better in such rankings (unless they're terrible compared with the original), simply because the people who didn't like the first series and left low ratings are less likely to watch them.

    How long will it take you to watch/read the whole series?

    It's not as bad (or good, depending on your love for Gintama) as MAL, Gintama takes up 5 of the top 10 spots.

    Yeah that makes sense with regards to sequels. Gintama is well worth it in my opinion. The start is a bit slow but it just gets better and funnier the more you watch. I've been watching 1 or 2 episodes per day for about 2 and a half months but I might pick up the pace soon because of the new season.

    I've decided to not watch any anime for the rest of the week though because I'm feeling burned out. Let's see how long I can last:lol:.

    If we're just talking the first 201 episode series, it'd depend on how much I get into it. I like to watch lots of different anime at the same time (usually 18 ongoing series, with two complete series to watch while waiting for new releases), on top of manga, gaming and other commitments (like sleep :p:), but if we assume I like it enough to give it priority over most other things, I could probably finish it in under a month. Could be much slower than that if I'm not impressed, though.

    As for the various sequels, again due to my love of variation, even if I loved Gintama I'd probably leave a gap and watch something different before coming back to it, so reaching the current 4th series would take a long time.

    I have this sort of morning ritual where I catch up with any latest manga chapter, than before sleeping I would watch anime.

    I've cosplayed a few times, most recently Madaraki Fran from the manga Franken Fran, which I have far more photos for than my other two.

    Photos






    The other two were Shidou Mariya from Maria+Holic...

    Photo


    ...and the Medicine Seller from Ayakashi and Mononoke (the makeup for this one was done from memory, so the face markings aren't an exact match)

    How about you?

    Thanks! I like going for costumes that stand out, though six arms is going to be a hard one to beat next year... don't know who I'll be cosplaying next, but it won't be boring. :p:

    I hope you have as much fun cosplaying as I did.

    North West Wales to be exact. :p: Though there aren't many expos or conventions around here, so I do have to travel over the border to get to my nearest. Telford MCM is the one I usually go to, but it was Minamicon in Southampton I was at most recently with the Franken Fran costume. :yes: That was a bit of a journey...

    Manchester wouldn't be TOO difficult to get to, but I've heard that most of the MCM events are pretty much the same (though the London one is obviously much bigger), and I don't know anyone else from my group of friends who's going. Still, it's one to keep in mind for future.

    There's a Tokyo Ghoul Dance video :eek:

    Very strange dance, but it was well worth 3 minutes of my day.

    The thing about Tokyo Ghoul for me is that the first season was very enjoyable with a thrilling end, I expected a lot more in season 2. I was confused and even the ending I didn't particularly enjoy. I'll probably still watch season 3 when it's out simply to see how Kaneki ends up, as well as Touka.

    Also, slightly unrelated but it was on the previous page, I recently finished watching Steins Gate again and it was even better the second time around. It was a brilliant anime, probably one of the most enjoyable ones I've seen. I can't see how people didn't enjoy it.

    Lastly, I started watching Durarara! but the start is very slow for me. I'm buffering on episode 3 at the moment, I'm hoping it will pick up when I continue watching after I've finished my assignments

    I've started Tokyo Ghoul with the manga and then moved on to the Anime, and the manga makes much more sense (I'm loving the new tokyo ghoul, but the plot seems a bit slow for now).

    Yeah Steins Gate is pretty cool when you watch it a second time. Those moment of reminiscing the anime just puts me in a state of euphoria

    The awesome thing about Drrr is the interaction between the characters, though there isn't much character development

    Had to abandon my plan to watch Busou Chuugakusei: Basket Army, as apparently the 5th and final episode isn't subbed.

    I have watched the first episode of another short, Takamiya Nasuno Desu!, however. It's a spin-off of the amazing Teekyuu, and seems as though it'll be just as fast-paced and fun. I may leave the rest of the series until it's over though, and watch them back to back, as I usually do with Teekyuu.

    I haven't, but now I'm intrigued! Hard to imagine how it could be any worse than Vampire Holmes though, :p:

    I just watched the first 2 episodes of Vampire Holmes and it is absolutely awful. Is that actually being broadcast on Japanese TV or is it just a web thing?

    I sort of liked Ninja Slayer - it is very clearly the same team as the wonderful Inferno Cop, but they've been given a slightly bigger budget so they don't have to do the voice acting themselves this time! First episode wasn't all that funny, but I'm willing to give it a few episodes to see where they are going - there is certainly a full commitment to the neon pseudo-80's cyberpunk OVA aesthetic anyway!
