    The full OP theme for Owari no Seraph is out. :coma: Definitely my favourite theme of the season, and probably the only thing this slow-paced, generic series has going for it at this point, though I have decided to keep it on - should be entertaining once the action finally starts, I hope.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback on the other Spring shows I asked for about a week ago - I did end up watching a couple more episodes of Denpa Kyoushi, but it did nothing for me. Just too similar to Ansatsu Kyoushítsu, while nowhere near as good. Yamada-kun was alright, but not much better than anything else I was already watching. And I gave Punch Line a second shot at the recommendation of a friend on Facebook... nope, still bad.

    In the end, sorry to say I ignored everyone and picked up Etotama, which is just completely my kind of series. I was much too hasty dropping it just because of its similarity to Show By Rock!!

    Cowboy Bebop and Baccano! for sure. Also, I think you'd like Code Geass since it's similar to Death Note. Oh, and the Fullmetal Alchemist series is also worth watching.

    Not specifically but yeah, I just like shows with good character development and an interesting plot- as they are the fundamental basics really.

    I really should make the movies list my next project....maybe after I get the Summer preview done.

    Gintama is awesome - so impressive how it can keep being so fun even after so many episodes. Second Season of the Monogatari series has excellent character development, but I think I still prefer Bakemonogatari over all.

    Yes I've seen NANA - stunning shoujo series. It's sitting down in the 50s-60s for me, simply because of the frustrating ending. Still highly recommended though.


    I actually put off watching Cowboy Bebop for years because I was sure it wouldn't live up to the hype (same with Samurai Champloo), but it definitely is regarded as an anime classic for very good reasons.

    I'd definitely recommend Eureka Seven - it looks beautiful and the central love story is really engaging. I'm due a rewatch of that. Escaflowne is also heavy on the romance aspect - my love for that series is heavily steeped in nostalgia (it was one of my gateway shows). I'd also heartily recommend RahXephon if you liked Evangelion.


    That's definitely School Days. A show I haven't actually watched, but still know more than I really wanted to know about.


    That's a pretty cool list - take it you're a fan of shounen action shows!

    A few shounen action series:

    Hunter x Hunter (2011)

    One Piece

    Magi

    Soul Eater

    D.Gray-man


    Shows similar to Death Note with mind games and clever characters:

    Code Geass

    Zetsuen no Tempest

    Monster

    Kaiji

    Spiral


    And finally, some shoujo:

    Lovely Complex

    The Rose of Versailles

    Skip Beat!

    Escaflowne

    Or this season's Ore Monogatari!!, if you don't mind the weekly wait for new episodes.


    I hope that something there is of interest to you!

    Difficult one, as I was discussing with another member on here a week ago. The first anime has better pacing at the start, and a completely anime original (but not bad, considering) conclusion; Brotherhood sticks to the manga and is the better of the two series in my opinion, but it has a very rushed beginning because it assumes people will have already seen the original. It slows down at the point where the first series deviated from the manga, and is great from then onwards.

    If you don't mind fast pacing and lack of detail, you could probably jump right into Brotherhood. But if you're okay adding an extra 50 episodes, watching the first anime might add to your enjoyment of Brotherhood afterwards. :dontknow:

    I would recommend watching the first series before Brotherhood, not only is it a brilliant anime in itself, but it also has better pacing at the beginning and takes more time developing the relationship between Edward and Alphonse. Brotherhood does have a superior story, but it skips over or barely covers some important parts in the original because it's assumed that you've already watched the original. I watched the original first, and I think it helped me enjoy Brotherhood a lot more.

    FMA is far from a terrible anime, if you enjoyed Brotherhood you'll enjoy it (although its scale is a lot smaller so it may feel a bit underwhelming if you watch it after Brotherhood). I'm a big fan of the series so I may be a little biased towards it, but it really isn't terrible at all. I'm interested in seeing any genuine reasons that FMA is 'terrible', since I haven't seen any yet.

    I loved FMA! Everyone's favourite characters?

    My favourite, I think, had to be Roy Mustang. He was just so weird in an amusing, random and then strangely caring way.
    I totally ship Roy and Riza! There is some gorgeous fan-art for this ship:
    Spoiler:
    Show



    (sorry for small size, there was once a larger image but I think it was taken down which is a shame because it is my favourite of them all; gorgeous detail)


    Aren't they gorgeous?

    I loved the humour in FMA, I think it was definitely needed to make the whole anime less depressing, don't you think? There were many sad events, and the Elric brothers' story was even based on a sad one really. Definitely pulled at my heartstrings in several places. I loved the appearance of the Seven Sins and something I really adored about the anime was how it portrayed women. I'm not a full-blown feminist as such, but it was just quite wonderful to see some women taking on a tougher lifestyle/appearance; there was nice variety including Riza, Winry, Lust and Izumi.

    Wondered if anyone else has seen Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa?
    I really enjoyed it and thought it was very cool.


    I really enjoy the humour in anime; currently I'm watching Death Note and the humour is also brilliant here. I was encouraged to watch it by a friend years ago but never did until recently because my favourite idol will be playing character L in the Korean musical Death Note (데스노트) throughout June and July. Is anyone else a fan of this anime?

    :ditto: About the only negative thing that springs to mind is that it isn't as epic as Brotherhood, though it handles the scenes from earlier on in the manga far better. :yes:

    Here's the small image in full size.

    My favourite character from the series has to be Armstrong, so funny, but surprisingly powerful as well! One of the best in my favourite character of all time list.

    I have seen Conqueror of Shamballa, though it was a LONG time ago, can't remember many of the details. Seems I rated it highly though! :p:

    I'm a big fan of Death Note (it's in my Top 50 anime list, along with FMA: Brotherhood), but I can't say I watched it for the humour! Though...

    Death Note episode 10 spoilers

    Mustang is one of my all time favourite characters, and I must admit I do 'ship' him and Riza Hawkeye . I love Riza as well, I love a strong female character in anime. My favourite character is Edward Elric though (heck, my username says it all). I love the original anime since it expands on the Seven Sins in a lot more detail, and as I said before focuses a lot more on Ed and Al as apposed to the larger cast in Brotherhood.

    I saw Conqueror of Shamballa a while ago (since the original FMA ending left me feeling a little miffed). I remember enjoying it, but I felt it was a little unnecessary, and I wish they had just wrapped up the show within the series. Still, it's an enjoyable movie in and of itself.

    On Friday night I attempted to watch The Sacred Star of Milos, the second FMA movie. I got about half an hour into it before giving up, it just didn't feel like FMA at all. Sure, it had the same characters, but I didn't enjoy what I saw at all. I must admit, I started it very late so I was pretty tired and therefore not in the best shape to watch it. I may come back to it in the future, though.

    Oh, and I'm a big fan of Death Note. I consider it the anime that truly sparked my interest, and since it was one of my first anime it really surprised me that an animated show could have such a good story. I need to rewatch it soon, I have very fond memories of Death Note.

    Voted for Show By Rock!!'s Plasmagica in Sanrio's annual character poll. :proud: Apparently they and the series' other band ShinganCrimsonZ are on track to win at this early stage, beating the likes of Hello Kitty and My Melody! :zomg:
