    LOL, I got to episode 220 in Bleach this morning, I am gonna try to finish it off with the movies as well this weekend.
    This has been a pretty amazing experience (watching 220 episodes in a couple weeks) It has been such an excellent story to follow. But I now realize what you guys were talking about when you mentioned separate story lines and junk/filler. I was so pissed when around episode 200 they were getting ready for a big showdown than I think from 201 to 212(I think) it was just filler ad crap added. I would have been SO PISSED if I was waiting a week for each episode for the continuation....

    Well your almost up to where they are at in Japan... lol.. I'm still at around 175... I haven't felt like watching anymore.. Like Naruto.. I stopped when Naruto and Sasuke did their fight in the river... Or was it mountain/river area... I forget.. lol..

    I've loaded my portable hdd with a few anime to watch these next two weeks..

    Rewatch Trinity Blood
    Darker Then Black first season
    Try watching Gundam Seed again
    rewatch Peace Maker
    Kenshin's on there no matter what. :roll:
    Saiyuki
    Patlabor III Movie

    I believe there is a few others.. I didn't want to fill 160gb hdd with just anime. :eek: I need to buy a bigger passport!

    Yeah HKmods, everyone has this realization.

    I actually dropped both Bleach and Naruto anime and started reading the manga. That way each week I get actual storyline. Thing is, while Naruto manga is really good. The bleach manga sucks..
    Cause its all fighting it looks really bad un-animated.

    You hate that, wait until you hit ~ep230....(although this filler is pretty decent, if not a little predictable).

    ...and i've been waiting on a weekly basis since march, which was around ep 190 (bad time to run out of episodes).

    Also naruto just started a new filler arc (next episode for at least 2 episodes from what i can tell). Both bleach and naruto have tons of storyline to cover now, i wish they'd just get on with it and close some of the story arcs which have been going on for over 12 months.

    I've run out of anime atm - watched all of hellsing in 1 night so i'm bruning through all reccomendations fast. If anyone knows of anything like full metal panic (the sense of humour in that is brilliant) or something like vampire knight i would be greatful for something to keep me occupied.

    My old housemate used to read the manga and once he found out how behind the anime was he had a fun game - 1 spoiler a day for a month :(. I still enjoy watching the anime though, as i havn't read the manga it keeps me reasonably entertained (not as much as comedy/parody anime like lucky star or full metal panic though).

    Disclaimer: Don't read if you are watching naruto on a weekly basis and don't want to ruin the arc after the filler is finished.

    Well a few important characters die, one death isn't too far away in the anime with Jiraiya going out to find Pain. Also other important characters in the current arcs die too (dont know how far away their deaths are).

    humor like Full Metal Panic is almost hard to come by.. well Mech wise.. I all ways cracked a smile watching GunXSword.. Only because the guy reminded me so much of TriGun... Don't ask me why... Gravion.. I liked it a lot watching the two seasons.. plus, it has nice... lol..

    If I ever want to watch a funny anime.. Desert Punk ftw! :rockout:

    * Reason anime became huge in your life
    I been watching anime ever since I started watching TV, so its one of my first forms of entertainment.
    * Favorites (movie, series, even cartoons) and describe why you enjoy them so much.
    There's many great Animes, but my favorites tend to be from 80's and early 90's.
    For this specific question, put me down for Saint Seiya, as my favorite ;)

    Yea definitely, though as someone who's been watching it my entire life, theres plently of terrible ones as well.

    The Japanese love their stereotypes, one dimensional characters, and cliche's.

    However the truly good anime, well, its not my favorite form of entertainment for nothing heh!

    So watching anything good these days??
    I every season pick a lot of new stuff to watch, i like to watch lots of ongoing anime and rarely have time to watch a full series (there's not much left to watch either way, just sometimes picking dvd releases of good animes) ...

    Yea I bet, hence why I never argue about opinions, I simply want them substantiated, but everyone is different, which is perfect, because whenever I want to try something new, I have many options.

    An Anime that I love as well, thats fairly recent is Fate Stay Night.

    That reminds me of the classic Eva VS Gundam wars...


    For me it isnt fairly recent anymore but fairly old, id recomend you Tsukihime and more recently and kara no kyoukai, just in case you missed them...
    Their based on the same world as fate...

    That's nice, still an opinion, I am new here, so I am not sure what you guys consider "trolling" but I do this in the nicest way possible.

    ... :slap: ...


    No problem, let me know what animes you like etc, then I can get an idea of your personal preferences, and can give you some more.

    Anyone crazy into anime figures, and other memorabilia. I am hehe
