I didn't really search cause I'm too lazy to see if this type of thread exists but what the hell..

Anyways, I really love anime and manga. Right now I'm watching a few currently.. My favorite one at the moment is One Piece though. I always laid it off to the side cause it never really caught my attention, until recently. Now I know why it has been going on for so long now.

Basically I made this for people who love anime and manga to discuss and talk about everything anime.

So anyways my favorite anime of all time would probably include a few; Bleach, Death Note, FMA: Brotherhood, H.O.T.D., etc.

I would add some older ones too but meh. Btw this isn't just to talk about your favorite anime or whatever, you can discuss about them too.

'm looking for anime (or manga) that has really awesome fight scenes and the character in the beginning is kinda weak but then he becomes stronger as the show goes on.


Ao No Exorcist. Not that he is exactly bad at first but he isn't experienced it what he's supposed to do. Plus, he goes against his own kind. When you watch it you will see what I mean.

Bleach is also good. The MC is also weak at the start, I guess..

D-Gray Man. Although it's listed above I'd suggest it as well.

There are many others but I can't think of them right now.

No problem man. Recently Ao No Excorcist has become extremely popular. You might really like it. It has a great plot and MC. And they break out the plot very nicely.

So, because Sour convinced me (without talking to me once ) I watched 45 episodes of one piece in 2 weeks.

So far, the show seems a bit typical. Find bad guy, fight two of his minions first where they are only 1 VS 1 and if anyone tries to interfere they are stopped. Kill bad guy, set sail. Find something bad.

Still, it is still alright and I'm enjoying it so far. I'll make my opinion when they get to the grand line though.

Har har har. I have that power sometimes

Trust me, once you get to the grand line it's 100 times better. It around episode 60+ Don't remember though.

As I told Sour, and now he's telling you, once you get to the Grand Line the show takes off.

Ao No Excorcist


Eh, I haven't watched it yet, but from the description it doesn't sound all that great. I didn't even include it in my list I made, where I went through and read every description of every anime on the site and wrote it down in notepad if I thought it -might- be worth giving a shot, which is saying something...

I don't think it's amazing, but it's a pretty good anime. In my opinion anyways.

I've watched One Piece on and off for years. I think I stopped around episode 160 or so, towards the beginning of the Skypeia Arc. Even up to that point, I agree with Leo's analysis. Sure, the arcs get longer, but the idea is the same. There didn't seem to be a cohesive plot throughout the series. That would be fine if the series were shorter, but after 100+ episodes, I'd expect there to be a clearer direction of where the plot is heading. This is a problem with a myriad of shounen anime/manga, though I will admit that Eiichiro Oda was clever in coming up with a premise to make these tropes make sense. I've taken cursory looks at the summaries for some later arcs, and they do admittedly seem interesting, but I don't really have the time or patience to wade through another 100+ episodes to get to the really good parts.

To each his own I guess. I can easily go through 100 episodes just to get to great parts. If I have free time especially.

i prefer mangas over animes because the most animes have too many filler episodes. i know, fillers are there so the manga author has enough time to make more chapters but they could at least fit into the story of the anime!

Manga over anime* You don't add an s to them if they're plural. Just so you know in the future

And yes I like manga over anime most of the time. I agree with you completely that the fillers are sometimes annoying... BUT, there is some anime that have very good fillers.

Actually, not all that many have fillers. Naurto is especially notorious (I think at least 1/4 of all the episodes are fillers...) but most have only 1 or 2 filler episodes, if any at all.

And yes I like manga over anime most of the time.


Meh, I disagree. From my experience most anime series follow their respective manga well, so it's just like the manga with sound and color and movement instead of monochrome and single scenes.

For anime that doesn't follow the manga well, I'd agree though.

BUT, there is some anime that have very good fillers.


Rule of thumb for fillers: If you couldn't tell it was a filler, it was good (you mostly only find out if you go and read the manga and find that that never happened...).

Yup that's how I know though, because I usually read the manga before the anime.

but most have only 1 or 2 filler episodes, if any at all.


Yeah. Bleach is also notorious for the fillers.. -.- I remember going through like 13 episodes of fillers once.

For anime that doesn't follow the manga well, I'd agree though.


To be honest I find more anime that don't follow manga well more than those that do.. But meh.

They have a filler arc which is like for before a movie that has nothing to do with anything else...which isn't bad in itself, but it has no place in the storyline.

To be honest I find more anime that don't follow manga well more than those that do.. But meh.


I haven't read many manga for the more popular ones, but the ones I have seemed to follow it nearly word for word and picture for picture.

Since most of the anime I watch these days are either short (one or two seasons), completely original, or based off light/visual novels, I haven't run into the problem of fillers in a long time. But would you guys rather have fillers or nothing at all? One problem I had with filler-laden anime was the issue of continuity. Since anime producers can never predict what the mangaka is going to do next, they run the risk of adding content that ends up contradicting what happens later on in the plot.
