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.

I was looking more for a seinen thriller that isn't bereft of lighter moments. But still primarily focused on drama and suspense, with a bit of mystery throw in there to make me think.


Well this is going purely off of the shard of a memory that I have for one episode of this anime, but I think Darker than Black might be good for you. I can't remember, though, and my internet connection won't let me go sample one of the episodes for you right now.

I've watched Darker than Black. It's good if you can get past the biepisodic nature of its plot thread. The ending (of the second season) leaves a bit to be desired, but I loved the universe that it created.

Hmmm, how about Hyouka? it has a good and comedic approach to mystery happening in every day life, not anything serious, but more of a slice of life kind of thing.

I was watching Hyouka for a little bit. Got up to episode 10. It started off nicely, but it got a bit too slow for me. Does it pick up the pace in the latter half?

Also, has anyone watched Gosick? Thoughts?

Not so much, it doesn't have a main storyline to follow most of the time. Eh.

I have started to watch it about a year ago but got sidetracked 'cause of personal stuff. I plan on finishing it though, and from what I've watched it's pretty solid.

I'm going to start reading the Beelzebub manga. It seems interesting enough for me. But can anyone give some input into it?

I'm also watching Bleach again xD. I stopped a long time ago and now I got into it again. I'm still watching One Piece and Ao No Exorcist. Though I'm trying to read the manga for Blue Exorcist before I watch the Anime.

My favorite Animes
Sword Art Online=Great plot and nice character array.... I only watched Season 1, but I might whatch Season 2 if i get around to it.
Angel Beats= My friend showed this to me.... Only 12 episodes but it has proved to be quite a enjoyable anime too... They have a nice english dub and it can be quite funny at times!
Fate Zero.... I think?=I really don't know what this is called... it is escaping me... But i hooked up my friends I-pod to his TV and watched it on Crunchyroll.... I think there are 2 seasons to this, so 25 episodes. Another nice plot, and you really don't want any of the characters to die but they must...

I'm going to start reading the Beelzebub manga. It seems interesting enough for me. But can anyone give some input into it?

Sry... I don't read much manga, but i might get into it. If Beezlebub is good then try to message me.

So. I stumbled upon a new anime from this month. It's called, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. I do think it's from a light novel, not completely sure though.


I think the title translates to Archenemy and Hero. Anyways it's kind of about a war between Humans and Demons it seems interesting enough, and I want to get into a fresh anime :P

Anyways, I'll let you guys know how it is. I'm also going to get into D-Gray Man and I'm currently already watching Highschool DxD but I'm only on episode 4. xD So far it's good.

Yeah, Maoyu seems very quality. I think I referenced it a few pages back. I believe it will ultimately be a romance, with war and economics as just a backdrop.

That's fine, I like romance genre in anime. Kind of like SAO. I do hope it has some action in it as well as some comic relief every now and then. I like fantasy anime as well, so it fits nicely.

@sourwhatup2

Have you ever watched Clannad? The first season focuses on comedy, whilst the second more on romance and drama, while they both form a masterpiece.
I highly recommend it if you haven't watched it already.

I second that recommendation. Clannad is one of the few shows, anime or otherwise, that has made me tear up for episodes. In retrospect, the first season wasn't really THAT great (better-than-average harem, to be honest), but the second season, After Story, is indeed a masterpiece. Only problem with it was the ending, which was, in my opinion, a massive trolling on its viewers. But some people thought it was the best way to end the series. Either way, the rest of After Story is brilliant.

Nope, I'll take a look at it. Thanks.

Wow I didn't think this would die out tbh. I stopped watching anime and reading manga for a while since I've been busy but I'm gonna get back into it soon.
