This Thread is For Otakus (Because I don't think another one exists)

edited May 2013 in Less Rokk More Talk
So as I was going through the Less Rokk More Talk forums today I thought "Why isn't there a devoted thread to anime and manga?" And so this is why this thread exists, so we can all be nerds and otakus in a cluster so big it might as well be called Giant Naked Ball of Nerdiness. PLease try to be nice to each other though.

So what anime and manga have you read? My list is as follows:

Anime

Neon Genesis Evangelion (26 episodes)
Fullmetal Alchemist (25 episodes)
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt (13 episodes)
Deadman Wonderland (12 episodes)
Puella Magi Madoka Magica (12 episodes)
FLCL (6 episodes)
Squid Girl (~6 episodes)
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (4 episodes)
Ergo Proxy (3 episodes)
Kaiba (1 episode)

Others:
Crayon Shin-Chan
Dragon Ball (original, Z)
A bunch of 4kids dubs when I was young (Sonic X, Kirby: Right Back At Ya!, etc.)
End of Evangelion
Rebuild of Evangelion 1.11: You Are (Not) Alone
Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie
A bunch of Studio Ghibli movies (Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, Kiki's Delivery Service, Castle in the Sky, The Secret World of Arriety, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea)

Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos

Manga (I lack here)
Yotsubato! (80 chapters)
Puella Magi Kazumi Magica (19 chapters)
Squid Girl (3 or 4 chapters)

Let the nerdfest begin!

    As for anime, I've seen Death Note, first few episodes of Persona 4, first two episodes of Wolf's Rain, and the first 25 or so episodes of Bleach.

    Also there has been threads for Anime before..
    I figured, but I'm not going to necromance a 3 year old thread.

    So anyways, considering I haven't watch a whole ton of anime, can someone recommend me some to watch based on what I already have?

    I thought Gowie made a thread called Animation Domination, but eh

    http://myanimelist.net/animelist/HeyRiles

    It kind of looks like you're all over the place with your list of shows you've watched, but I guess the most common is whatever is related to Fullmetal Alchemist

    I think Ao no Exorcist is a pretty good one that is kind of comparable to FMA, which kind of follows the story of a different outcast

    Ehh, to be honest I watched the first season of the 2003 version, then got bored of it (although my brother loves it). The only reason I included it is for completeness.

    So minus FMA?

    Umm lemme think

    For Puella Madoka, the best fit I can think of at the moment is Mirai Nikki, which, I guess, is kind of a mix of Puella Madoka and Deadman Wonderland, now that I think of both. And Yuno is delightfully insane

    Panty and Stocking is pretty much sex jokes, so I dunno. Probably Seitokai Yakuindomo since that's a sketch show of sex jokes. B Gata H Kei revolves around sex as well, but that's more visual than conversational

    FLCL, there's some show Gowie really likes that I didn't like much that I think is a lot like Fooly Cooly. I don't remember the name of it though, maybe he'll mention it later

    And Squid Girl is kind of most cute shows I guess. I didn't finish it and I'm not a big fan of shows like that so you'd probably have to ask elsewhere

    Also Ao no Exorcist is about a kid who finds out he's actually the son of Satan, and when Satan kills his human father who was some high priest, he vows revenge to kill Satan by becoming an exorcist like his father was. It's a pretty cool story of trying to fit in, I guess

    My favorite anime/manga series is Magic Knight Rayearth. I usually don't like such cutesie shows, but nostalgia wins out on this one.

    I didn't see a mention of Ghost in the Shell.

    I own that, and Akira.

    Aww, I see no mention of R.O.D.: Read or Die. I enjoyed the OVA better than the series, but it was still pretty good.

    I still have a ton to go through in my Netflix queue, but the two I'm working on now are Elfen Lied and Gunslinger Girl. The previous two I finished are Angel Beats and Air.

    Off the top of my head, other stuff I've seen:
    Death Note
    Macross Plus
    Serial Experiments Lain
    .hack//Sign
    Ghost in the Shell
    Samurai X
    Grenadier
    Princess Mononoke
    Spirited Away
    Ponyo
    Castle in the Sky
    Innuyasha
    Ranma 1/2
    Akira
    Full Metal Alchemist
    High School of the Dead
    Big O (I really miss this series)
    A couple episodes of Naruto and Afro Samurai

    I know I'm missing a ton, but I'll think of them later. I'm not an anime buff at all but I do enjoy them from time to time.

    Magic Knight Rayearth is a good one. But I love Inuyasha, Naruto and Maid Sama. :)

    Kaichou wa Maid-sama is a good one. I had a lot of fun with it, Ayuzawa is a really strong character, which honestly makes it kind of a bummer that Usui didn't have much of a personality and didn't have any relatable issues

    Dragon Ball
    Dragon Ball Z
    Dragon Ball GT
    Black Butler

    Ok so I decided to watch the first episode of Code Geass so I could understand some people at school.

    Watching Little Busters! (written by KEY, who wrote Clannad and Air), OniAi (incest), Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo (this girl can't do nothin', also is my avatar), and Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shi-tai! (girl screwing up guy's new social life). At some point as they release, I'll also probably watch season 2 of Medaka Box and season 2 of Seitokai no Ichizon

    I just rewatched K-ON! and I have to say the english dub was done pretty well on the target. Still probably one of the best splice of life animie out there and if sources are any indication. Season 3 should be up to spunk.

    Dane gurl your anime list page is totes unreadable with all that background and neon text

    That said, major props on the high grade for Kimi ni Todoke. I'd give recommendations, but considering you're currently watching more shows than I've completed, I'm pretty sure you don't really need anything else on your plate

    Can I ask why it's your favorite anime? Because I just finished series one of the franchise and I can't say I'm impressed at all? The plot narrative seems sloppy, the characterization weak, and the only thing I really like about it is the animation style and watnot?

    I am such a nerd. Started watching anime since late May of 2012 and I have completed so much. It'll say how many I watched on the first link I've posted.

    My favorite anime that hadn't been mentioned by anyone else in the thread yet. That's it. I like the art style, the overall "moody, yet saccharine" atmosphere, and that Megumi Hayashibara is the principal voice actress, but otherwise it's basically a merely above-average series that holds a soft spot in my heart due to it being one of the first that I ever really got into (apart from Ranma, Love Hina, and Rurouni Kenshin).

    OK, so time for me to post in my own thread again. I've been trying to assemble a list of shows that I want to watch, and I want critique on them.

    Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de - It's the Console Wars! But it's an anime!
    Chobits - I like robot girls, seems appealing
    Death Note - Everyone seems to watch it
    Elfen Lied - Dark, apparently
    Excel Saga - Apparently funny
    Girls und Panzer - It's girls! In tanks!
    Is This A Zombie? - Seems interesting
    Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha - Seems interesting
    Narutaru - Apparently it's a really grim deconstruction?
    Simoun - Genderbending, seems interesting

    Now my question is, is there anything in that list I shouldn't even bother with watching?
