I have just realised that such a society has not been set up, despite a nice thread circulating around.
So, this is it, a society to discuss, reccommend and other activities regarding anime. I of course will be the president (otherwise known as wiwarin-sama), so whoever wants to join, just give me a buzz and we will see.
Sites you might like to visit:
- if you want to know about any anime series, go here.
- a verry good bittorrent clinet, needed to download torrent files.
Some good info about buying anime and manga online can be found here
Good anime series
- One of the most popular anime series with western watchers, about a young ninja called Naruto. It is a great anime series if you like a good mix of action, comedy and seriousness. If you are just getting into the series, you will have to plough through 115 episodes at present, so be prepared for heavy downloading.
Prince of tennis
- Don't let the fact that this is about tennis put you off, it is action all the way (all be it physics defying). The story revolves around a boy called Echizen Ryoma and his journey to become the tennis champion. If you dislike sport anime series, this might not be the anime series for you, but give the first couple of episodes a try to see. get infro here
. If you do decide that you like it, you will have 152 episodes to plow through with more on the way.
Hunter x Hunter
- Covering 62 episodes and 3 OVAs (with another series being scheduled for late next year, Hunter x Hunter is about a boy called Gon and his travels to find his father, who left him when he was very young. If you liked Naruto, you will definitely like HxH as the action and plot are similar and both lead characters are voiced by the same person (a female incidently). for more information check here
- This is a strange little series that only has the loosest of plot, but then again a comedy like this needs not a strong plot. Excel saga centres around a High school graduate that goes to work for ACROSS, an idealistic organisation that is bent upon world domination, led by the powerful Lord Ilapalazu. Since death is a daily occurance for Excel, the Will of the macrocosm (for some reason affiliated with ACROSS) frequently has to resurrect Excel and others.
If you do not like insane and nigh on incomprihensible plots or comedy anime series, excel saga is not for you, but otherwise, give it a try and see if you like it.
