Anime - General

So, since most of the people coming here will probably be anime fans, I thought it would be good to let you guys know what I'm a fan of.   Here's my MAL profile.  It'll give you an idea of what I've watched, but not really of what I like since I usually don't bother to rate most of my entries. --;

My all-time favourite anime is probably Moyashimon.  It's cute, funny, and taught me everything I know about fermentation and I remember microbe names easily now.  Okay, I draw the Moyashimon version of the microbe beside its name in my notes in order to remember.

Eureka seveN and Simoun are pretty high up the list, too.  E7 was just amazing--the plot, the characters, everything worked together beautifully.  Yeah, the Anemone/Dominic thing was a bit of a cop out but it was so cute.  Also, vaguely creepy when you remember that Dom is older than he looks. Simoun had wonderful character development and beautiful art and music.  Shame people always write it off as yuri fanservice.

This season I'm watching Star Driver, Togainu no Chi, Panty & Stocking, and OreImo.  Star Driver is great, but the recycled animation is getting annoying.  Fish Girl's song, too.  It's a beautiful song, but do we really have to hear it every single time they enter Zero Time?  I'm watching Togainu no Chi because I have some of the figures and I feel like watching it will "justify" the cost.  That and TnC is one of the few yaoi series I like.  I have a love/hate relationship with PSG.  When it's good, it's great and when it's mediocre, it's horrible.  It's more often great than horrible, though, so I'm okay with that.  OreImo is...I neither like it nor dislike it.  I do like that it's less "I want my hot sister" and more "Yay, I'm being treated like a big brother again!" if that makes any sense.

  3. Nudge: So far, the car chase episode was my favourite. :)

    Radioactive: I've seen two episodes of it. I was kind of disappointed by it. Does it get better in later episodes?

  5. I thought it got better, but it remains rather ridiculous. XD That's the charm of it though.

  6. Radioactive: If it gets better, then I'll marathon the remaining episodes on my next break from school. :)

  7. I saw the first episode of panty and stocking, but that's it. The animation is nice, but I think the big hands are sort of ugly...

  10. My favorite anime will always be Elfen Lied, even if a lot of people don't seem to like it. I don't really watch anything anymore. More of a video game person.

  11. Soviet: I read the Elfen Lied manga, but I never got around to watching the anime. This season's the first time in a while that I've watched anything current.

  13. I cant get into Panty and Stocking. Its really unimpressive. Its too vulgar for it to be clever imo.

    I will continue being an old fag : 3
