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.

Uchu Kyoudai looks good from that one ANN poster. Do give me a bell if it turns out to actually be great. As for Angel Beats, yeah I've heard interesting things about it but it still never caught my attention. I literally need a massive blockbuster, age-defining show to make me get back into the swing of things. Those kinds of shows act as catalysts. I need, like, another Monster or Death Note or FMA. Or, God, another LOTGH. I'd love another Escaflowne, to be honest. All these things I'd like. I actually believe there is a curse when you reach roughly 300 anime that means you run out of things roughly corresponding to your taste that also happen to be amazing. I mean, truly grand shows become so thin on the ground, you can't help but rewatch what you already have and pray for the creators to come back to their senses.

If I may recommend you a manga, by the way, in case you ever need a break from anime, check out Pluto. I just know you will love it.

Hi Spaceface,

Oh how great that you watched Banner/Crest! They are indeed really good shows. And while I agree the franchise is no LOTGH, it's hard to think of anything that is.

Ghost in the Shell is not boring me so much as just not tapping into my mood as it should. I think I need something action-packed right now. Next month, I'll start seeing if it's worth getting the FMA: Brotherhood DVDs. They are low in price and widely available. I just need something epic, exciting, full of intrigue and instantly lovable characters. I hear Brotherhood will deliver that. It's odd, the first season of GiTS felt a lot more active than the second and I was really identifying with the individual plots. I don't know. My anime watching has slowed down considerably anyway. I tend to watch a lot more Hollywood movies now to get my thrills.

As for SkipBeat, I read the manga before the anime came out and I wasn't sure the anime could do better than the manga. It is indeed fantastic (although the manga loses some momentum by the middle and becomes a bit repetitive) and I'm hoping we get something like it or Ouran soon once again. By the way, if you happen to find any shows in the new seasons that are worth salivating for, keep me posted. Mostly, my boredom stems from the search after something unique.

Oh my God, SO HAPPY that you love Escaflowne. It is a timelessly outstanding show. The reason so many others today don't recognise that is because it is getting old, and people automatically view something older as 'bad'. In its day it was hugely, hugely popular.

It's funny you should mention that anime is getting worse. We had a podcast discussion with Helen McCarthy in which the question was 'Is anime getting worse?' Check it out, see if you think some of her thoughts are interesting: http://nakama-britannica.animeuknews.net/2011/12/07/podcast-goes-fourth-interview-special/

Seriously, doing a dance at the fact that Escaflowne just found another fan. :D

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.
