    As a former player of Magic: The Gathering, I'd be curious about the card game... the anime didn't make it very clear what the game was like, though.
    It's pretty much like duel master (which was based on magic and played similarly, sort of) mixed with Weiss Schwarz, you have life cloth (similar to shields in duel masters), life break (similar to shield triggers in duel masters), Ener (similar to stock in Weiss Schwarz combined with mana in duel masters and MTG).
    A major difference is you don't pay a cost for calling SIGNI (creatures), only for spells and Arts (similar to spells but they're kept in the LRIG deck (max 10 cards) and most need a specific LRIG) And to Grow you're LRIG/ use LRIG Abilities

    Basically you aim to attack your opponents LRIG and reduce their life cloth until none are left and attack once more for game. You're SIGNI only hit your opponent by attacking directly if nothing is in front of them (each player has three spaces for SIGNI on their field which are lined up with one another) or overcoming and defeating the SIGNI in front of them. You're LRIG can attack the Opponent's LRIG Directly (However Colourless SIGNI called servants can nullify a LRIG attack (they have a small shield with a G in it on the card))

    More complex mechanics such as Cross/heaven and Resonas are brought in later but I don't think they're ever shown in the anime

    Didn't expect an answer one year later, but thanks! It does sound interesting, but unfortunately I'm no longer in a position where I can play any TCGs with other people offline. The joys of living in rural North Wales. :sigh:

    Fair enough I mainly play vanguard (DotX(main), Regalia, and OTT)
    But Wixoss's art is pretty and the game design really appeals to me,
    Still pouting that it doesn't have English release yet -_- because I wanna make a White Tama deck which I'd later upgrade to a Black white Mix (with lv5 tamayorihime, Sunspot Miko and Mayu, Genesis Miko)

    I try marathon anime too but I seem to struggle to find an anime to next latch onto after completing one, I end up just keeping 20 or so tabs of myanimlist pages open which are of anime I might watch but then completely forget about till I have an impulse to start watching something, often something that's not on my list of anime to watch..
    Just forget about it with some K-on!

    Hey opinions on Bakemonogatari? Don't see it mentioned much here. If you haven't watched it definitely give it a try!

    I'm currently halfway through Onimonogatari and absolutely love the humor but kinda get turned off when the show shifts towards "deep psychological characterization" or whatever (tiger arc for example) Think I'm enjoying it for the wrong reasons haha. Anyway whatcha guys think?

    I love it, can't wait for Owarimonogatari.

    I've almost finished rewatching the second season. Onimonogatari is my least favourite arc though. Koimonogatari is my favourite.

    Hello, avid anime watcher, never had the time to make a list because it would take to long, have watched almost anything, so here to talk about any of them and also get some suggestions and give suggestions . There is a lot of anime out there, unfortunately only half of it is worth 5 minutes researching to see if its good, however when anime is good it's great. so If anyone has any anime suggestions you think I may not have seen, I'd be grateful .

    Just like to throw a general statement out there, in my opinion Redline is the best anime ever created however it doesn't seem to get the credit it deserves, It has romance and action and a wacky world and of course, vivid colours. If you haven;t yet I thoroughly recommend looking it up and watching it. Its a masterpiece. however I'd also (excluding all the mainstream stuff such as FMA) like to ask what everyone else thinks the pinnacle of they're anime watching to be?

    Oh. well I like all types of anime really. anything that isn't wishy washy and repetition, or those harem or slice of Life types, I know some people like those but they're not my cup of tea XD.

    Fair enough, I just read your post above too, I've watched redline, I thought it was visually awesome and I liked the graphical work in terms of mechanics and stuff quite a bit too but can't say I rate it as highly as you but I'll still try!

    Sword of the Stranger. Film of a ronin (masterless/rogue samurai) and a younger kid who becomes this ronin's new master. It's visually cool but more importantly it is mechanically awesome - the fight scenes are super cool and the graphics team seem to have done an excellent job with the battle, horse and fight scenes - of which there are plenty.

    Nobunaga Concerto. It's based on a high schooler that goes back in time to the Era of Nobunaga - a Japanese shogun(?) who's incredibly famous. It's a funny anime, amusing throughout but really enjoyable. Again, the visuals are decent, it's a got a tidy, neat, clear kind of animation going on, similar to Sword of the Stranger, except Nobunaga Concerto is lighter in colour whereas the former has a much darker palatte.

    AppleSeed Alpha. A film which I believe is fully CG! Whether you believe it or not, for a piece of CG it's done pretty damn well, it's again an action film with plenty of weapons, tanks, explosions and even some mecha. I mostly enjoyed the visuals for this one, otherwise I felt it wasn't all that special but I do think, if I remember correctly, it is comparable to Redline!

    Hopefully some of this helps, if you've seen all of these, then let me know what else you've enjoyed, and maybe be more specific about what you don't like about those genres, and what you've liked about other anime

    Wow cool. actually I've watched sword of a stranger and enjoyed it. The fighting is similar other anime with the strong clear moves which I found quite entertaining, the plot was slightly cliche though XD.

    This second one I've never heard of and I'll be sure to give it a try, currently watching baby steps which was mention earlier in the chat which is kinda interesting, mostly because I play tennis myself so its quite cool to see how the technical stuff is portrayed, however I'll probably stop in a minute as I'm not usually into this sort of mind numbing stuff XD although the lost interest is fairly captivating.

    I heard about appleseed, its quite a famous Marmite in the anime world, mostly because of the stigma against cgi, which I kind of see. Appleseed being a mojor talking point because the CGI is quite good XD. I had a friend tell me that the story line is kind of boring and its a lot of guns in a post apocalyptic setting with some mecha. It's on my to do list but I don't really want to watch it and then get an opinion on it and get into an argument over it, because I'm usually very opinionated. Hey ho.

    Thanks again by the way, your knowledge of anime is very impressive .

    I have a Top 50 list, with Baccano! currently taking the top spot. I find it hard to imagine anything beating it for me, few other series come close to fitting such a good story and large, interesting cast of characters into such few episodes, and with no pacing issues either. :yes:

    Aha yes! I really like Sword of the Stranger, it's by far one of my favourite films. I think I've watched it twice, which for me, is pretty unheard of. Another film I think very highly of is without a doubt summer wars; perhaps check that out? It's definitely unique, and again, animated very well.

    Regarding tennis, that's pretty cool, I've never played it unfortunately but I'd like to try someday, I'd probably be awful at it though. I have to warn you, Baby steps can be quite repetitive at times and to be honest the tennis isn't all that interesting, it's more the character and his insight on tennis and his growth, for me at least - which is usually the case with sports anime!

    You're probably quite right about the marmite status of stuff like Apple Seed.
    I'd also have to agree with your friend on the boring part although I personally wouldn't say it was boring. I can see what was interesting enough to appeal to others, so I think it's really dependant on the person - Like most things in life.

    Btw, opinionated is good! As long as you're not unreasonable, forcible and narrow with it, then yeah.. No worries!

    Interesting discussion on anime is always welcome and there's quite a few regular posters in the anime society who have much more extensive knowledge than me, and have watched a lot more than me so you'll probably find plenty of posters that agree and challenge both you, I and everyone else.

    I've randomly decided to place all of the reviews I wrote ages ago onto a Wordpress blog, which you can view here:

    https://kouhyou.wordpress.com/

    It's unlikely I'll write any more, but it's nice to have them altogether in one place.

    For those unaware, these were written in the Anime Reviews thread:

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=491524

    Be assured to have a look as there's many more reviews there written by past and present members. :yes:
