about me

Welcome! If you just found yourself browsing my profile it means you are probably looking for someone with an anime taste which isn't very unlike your own. I hope my list will provide you with many (or atleast some) hours of entertainment!

I'm the type of person that enjoys watching a good story. And with that any genre can really apply aslong as it's done with some style and taste.

With any given show I usually find myself annoyed by the stereotype characters that the anime industry is repeating into infamy, but I still end up enjoying some of these shows nonetheless. Also, I don't mind watching dated anime aslong as it brings something special (LOGH/Berserk/Cowboy Beepop come to mind).

----------------------------------------------------

4+ - Recommendable 

3.5 Stars - Decent

3 Stars - Not very good

2.5 Stars - Bad

I usually spend alot of time finding new anime to watch so your imput is greatly appreciated.

Yeah, I feel you on Kara no Kyoukai. It didn't grab me within the first couple of movies, hence I dropped it. You're right to deduce that Major is more like Hajime no Ippo, although I would say it's not on the same level of amazingness. By which I mean, Hajime no Ippo is the definition of excellence in the sports genre, so no other can match up. Major S1 is still one of my favourite shows to date, though. Love it. Thrilled my socks off. Goro is not a thinker - he's a doer. So if you want an antidote to One Outs, that's the way to go. I'm not arguing that it's any more plausible, considering we're talking about hyping up little league baseball. But screw it. Amazingness. And if you do end up enjoying it (or even if you don't), check out Cross Game, it's got thrilling baseball AND combines it with intelligent romantic drama (it's a work by the same guy who did Touch, and that's awesome, although Megaupload's demise means I probably won't get hold of it anywhere anymore).

Other than that, I congratulate you on your choice of Escaflowne. I always fear pushing it because it's a late-90s show, but I consider it one of the most excellently plotten anime I know. High fantasy, a combination of shoujo and shounen, beautiful designs from the mecha to the environments, and a story that's streamlined as hell while feeling really epic. Oh, and a soundtrack I adore by Yoko Kanno. Hope you enjoy it.

I can understand if you come off an action/comedy high like FMP:TSR/Fumoffu, Shiki might seem a bit slow going. I recommend you complete your session with either Major S1, Escaflowne, or Fullmetal Alchemist for addictiveness.

And its funny you should mention Shiki, because I'm watching Steins;Gate and it's pretty much a similar experience in terms of pace. I'm on episode 10 and I think I actually liked Shiki a lot more by then than I do Steins;Gate because the former had convinced me of what was going on and got me invested in the outcome. The latter is sort of hanging around not giving me much, waiting to do something big. I like the protagonist, he's funny, and I like the intensely creepy moments the script drops in once in a while, but I've been made aware that there's some kind of big twist coming and now I feel its just stalling to get there.

Hi Spaceface,

You know, it's interesting about Ergo Proxy. I love slow-paced shows (Mushishi), I find delight in pretentious shows (Gozenso-sama Banbanzai, Angel's Egg), I can love intellectual cyberpunk (Ghost in the Shell), and I do enjoy the odd gothy show (Death Note). But Ergo Proxy seemed to have all these elements in a particular combination that put me off. There was too much talking and not enough grasping of what the hell was going on. And after reading vivafruit's damning review of it, I decided dropping it now and moving onto other things immediately was better than hanging on in confusion and hoping it would improve. I am unlikely to get back to it, considering how much other stuff I need to get through.

As for TTGL, I would say 3 episodes is enough to get the gist of what the show is offering. The story develops in surprising ways but that zany, high-energy style is pretty constant. It was one of my favourite shows that year but it isn't one of those I'd say is an utter priority. I think you really should give FMP: TSR a go, and Fumoffu is actually a standalone comedy, so you can watch that straight away without finishing the first season.Oh, and I should add Bokurano to the list of potentials - if you liked Madoka Magica's twisted idea of a contract, you'll love Bokurano.

And I will take your recommendation of Steins;Gate (I've heard great things from other people too, including vivafruit) and start watching that some time this week. Thanks!

Great Anime List!

Hi Spaceface,

Ah, happy to give a fellow LOTGH/Planetes fan some recs! So I went through your list and mine and checked what you hadn't watched and came up with the following recommendations for adventure/action. And then a couple more that I think are musts whatever the situation:

TV shows: Neon Genesis Evangelion, Princess Tutu, Claymore, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Escaflowne, Major Season 1, Now and Then Here and There,  Paranoia Agent, Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann, Princess Tutu, Shiki, Fullmetal Panic: TSR & Fumoffu (although you'll need to get through the underperforming first season to get to these two excellent sequels)

Movies: Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Paprika, Ghost in the Shell, Summer Wars, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, The Wings of Honneamise

Hope this helps!

I think you would have liked, but seeing the 1st episode of the 4th season ... much spoiler in that episode
