Post by Dustin C. » Sun Jan 20, 2008 5:22 pm

so guys, is there anything new in the anime world that looks interesting?

the emphasis on "new", and not bleach or naruto either.

eyeshield 21 (american football anime I think)
(haven't watched it yet, but it's up there on my list)

tsubasa chronicle
(I think the OVA's are way better than the actual anime, more action in them..)

and from the creators of death note: devil may cry
(liked it, but needs more action)

currently watching naruto, bleach and one piece =)

Interesting anime I've been missing out on due to my schedule:
-- PERSONA -trinity soul-
-- Rosario+Vampire
-- Sylvarie (Took some liberties with the spelling on this one. In romaji, the title is written as "Shuvarie")
-- Eyeshield 21
-- Toward the Terra

Always watching:
-- Bleach
-- Naruto

Upcoming series:
-- Baccano (February)
-- Monochrome Factor (April)

Watching reruns of:
-- Dragonball Z
-- Keroro Gunso (Dororo is the best. ^_^ )
-- Gundam Seed
-- Hayate no Gotoku


Unfortunately, I can't really be of help in terms of manga. Sorry.

The Eyeshield anime gets more interesting as you go from what I hear, but I really haven't been able to catch more than a couple episodes here and there. Since you're reading the manga, you're likely not missing out on anything aside from any and all filler episodes they put in.

For Kaiji, I read a sum-up of what the story is like, but I don't really know if it's the kind of anime I'd get into. Just one of those see it before you judge it type of series I think. I'll probably rent it to see what it's like when I have the time. Well, that is if I don't forget about it before then. :P

Couple more titles:

--> Tenpou Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi (Strange Tale in the Tenpou Era, Ayakashi Ayashi) -- A story set in feudal times featuring swordsmen and demons. Although I've only seen the first episode, what I saw was pretty sweet. Check it out if you get the chance.

--> Kyouryou King: D-Kids Adventure (Dinosaur King: D-Kids Adventure) -- This one is kinda like a mix between Pokemon and Digimon. A bit on the kiddy side, but amusing to watch. If you really like dinosaurs, then you might enjoy this one.

just out of curiosity, does anybody here actually watch the dubs?

I prefer to watch anime in its original language...

though as a child It was helpful to have them in your native language (I'm thinking of stuff like pokemon, beyblade and other kid's animes)

yet at this point in time I've come to dislike the dubs (one piece dubs are awful...) only good one I've seen were some eps of fullmetal alchemist (Al and Ed on the island, having to kill a bunny for dinner :P)

Golden Boy had awesome dub. That's pretty much it.

I've pretty much ditched animu for now. Last thing I watched was TTGL. Mostly because it was EPIC. Now I've just been reading manga.
Why don't we share a solitude? Let's travel alone, together.

heh.... Everything I watch is in its original language. It's all I can watch. :P

If you haven't seen the episode titled "Fullmetal vs. Flame", you're missing out. That's probably the most awesome episode in the series.

"That day, all female officers will be required to wear... TINY MINI SKIRTS!"
"You're a miracle Mustang, I'll follow you for the rest of my life!"
"Yes."

Awesomest part of FullMetal vs. Flame ever! >_<

Subs only for me. The english voice actors are usually BAD. If they're bad in japanese i don't really notice it (since i don't understand japanese)

Ok i don't know if this is 2008 or 2007 or anything.

-already seen & approved

denno coil
aria the animation
mushi-shi
ergo proxy

-waiting for

macross f
trinity blood
aria the natural & ova
black jack
and a whole load of other stuff that might be worth it.

So far only denno coil really kept me hooked. Not an instant classic but it reminded me of melancholy of haruhi suzumiya and ergo proxy. When i first saw that, it was something interesting between a load of grey anime junk.
