O-haaaai!

Supersherlockwhovian, I occasionally indulge myself the pleasantries of the animation world. Took one year off everything anime-related; now I'm trying to catch up, or at least finish some series. Tolkien-head, but not that judgemental when it comes to Jackson; I like to consider myself somewhat of an "open-mind". Potterhead to the grave and beyond. 

Greatest fear? Keanu Reeves as Spike in a Hollywood-remake of the greatest series ever made. 

My ship? Bad boy always gets the girl. High wind under under thy sail, oh ship o'mine!

I will always watch anything that Shinichiro Watanabe lays his hands on - his sole name is enough a trademark to make me give the title at least a chance. Same goes for Yoko Kanno. 

My time is my own, but my patience is very limited - I don't have it for new "trendy" series, and if I give it a chance, well, that's the best I can do. 

Anime ratings here are based solely on how much I've enjoyed one show or another, but sometimes nice visuals can add half of star or even a whole star even if the plot or characters lacked a bit in savour. 

 My favourite character is by far, Kamina from TTGL, and Heiwajima Shizuo follows him closely, as well as Holland Novak.  My favourite seiyuu is Shinichiro Miki. Other seiyuu's I worshiplike are Romi Park, Mamoru Miyano, Koichi Yamadera, Keiji Fujiwara, Katsuyuki Konishi, Daisuke Ono [he voiced Heiwajima Shizuo in a way I never thought it was humanly possible] and craploads of many others. 

Mulling time is over, my friends. Please allow me to present you my top 5.

Top 5 

1. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

2. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

3. Cowboy Bebop

4. Towa no Quon

5. Eureka SeveN

Totally obsessed with:

Music: G.i.t.S., E7, Sakamichi no Apollon, Sousei no Aquarion, Cowboy Bebop

Artwork: Masamune Shirou, Range Murata, Kaori Yuki

Composer: Yoko Kanno 

Director : Shinichiro Watanabe; Mamoru Oshii [y/y?]

Ongoing Anime : Eureka Seven AO

Last thing that made my jaw drop, roll on the floor, cry in despair and reach Nirvana, all in the same time: Towa no Quon

My advice to you, as a fellow anime fan? Never underestimate the power of older guys with glasses.

That tofugo blog rocks, thanks for sharing! Tetsuou is a favorite of mine, so I'm on a quest to see the titles on that list that I haven't... Found it interesting that of all the anime that could have made their list, Paprika... I mean, I've seen way stranger shit than Paprika, you know?! Mindgame, Cat Soup, Kuuchuu Buranko... Lots! Anyhow I digress, thanks again xD

hey thanks for the feedback, and yeah, durararara kind of fizzled out didn't it :/

 

I see you're digging steins;gate about as much as I am by your rating :D I haven't found anything else mildly interesting the past couple of seasons... have you come across anything comparable to steins;gate in quality?

 

cheers! :P

I never thought Samurai Champloo was slow paced. I liked that it was mainly episodic. I always finished watching an episode without even realzing it. Time just goes by but it never feels slow.

I'll look into Samurai 7. I hear good things about Claymore and I do like strong female leads which is the reason I wanted to try it.

I'm glad to hear the Eden movies have the same feel as the series. It would suck if it didn't.

I find Haruhi to be incredibly annoying but I love Kyon. I like reading the books so I just watch the episodes that correspond with the books.

Had Durarara!! stopped after the first arc, I would pick Durarara!! over Baccano!. However, since it didn't, I'd go with Baccano!. I really liked the cool urban theme that Durarara!! but I felt that the second arc wasn't as good as the first. I'm torn between the characters though: Izaya > Slizard but Izaya=Rail Tracer; Shizuo>Ladd but Isaac and Miria >>Walker and Erica; Firo=Kira. I just don't know which cast I like better.

I still liked the ending of Durarara!! though. I don't think it was as good as it could have been but I still liked it.
