My view on anime:

I love watching anime for some of the amazing stories you can get in the genre that you won't find in most live-action films. I believe that this is partly due to the fact that the anime creator has a near limitless choice of topics and artistic styles due to the lack of constraints that accompany living actors. Furthermore, i believe that "suspension of disbelief" is easier to maintain in this medium. And on a more basic level: anime is a welcomed escape from the tedium of constant med school lectures :)

Oh, and as a general rule for myself, I don't usually watch animes that have over 50ish episodes. If you can't tell a good complete story in 50 episodes, then there is probably a ton of filler for the purpose of making $$$ on a popular series. One notable exception is Monster, which I have to thank VivisQueen for recommending to me; it was so worth it!

Yep, I'm planning on checking out Monster after this healthcare management exam is over.

Gintama is for parody fun. If you like parodies, I would say it is worthwhile.

Hey Lelouch11, thanks for the encouragement on Ghost in the Shell. I'm glad they've continued with the sober feel of the movie, although there's a lot more room for humour too. The animation is very dated (horrid CGI) but the plots are proving really entertaining. Looking forward to making my way through both series.

Hi Lelouch11,

Apologies that it's taken me this long to get back to you. I'm chuffed that you finally got to see Monster in its entirety, and especially that you enjoyed it as much as I did! See you around!

Hi Lelouch11. Now that Viz have screwed up everything for Monster in the Western market by dropping it, the only way is fansubs. You may see if crunchyroll has it, actually. If not, try Anime-Kraze, Soldats, or Anime-Keep groups.
