    Hey guys, I just started watching anime over the summer thanks to my wonderful girlfriend :) I've always been a fan of all things Japanese but never got into anime until now. Here are some series I'm familiar with. She has a huge list of stuff she wants to watch with me and we are always looking for other shows as well!

    Recently Finished:
    Cowboy Bebop
    Trigun
    FLCL
    Chobits
    Avatar: The Last Airbender (in all fairness I watched this on my own before I met her, but most won't consider it anime).

    Still Watching:
    Ouran Host Club
    DragonBall Z Kai

    Wow talk about a tough choice!

    I loved all of them, but I guess I would pick Cowboy Bebop and Trigun, with Avatar a close third.

    Ah, Ouran was good. If you discount Dragon Ball (and its continuations), I probably started my otakuism with Ouran.

    Wait a sec. Why was I welcomed with "No"s and "Don't Care"s and he gets added to the OP ? :cry:

    I think I'll go back to my hikikomori-ism >_>

    All right.. reasons for not adding you..

    • 2 posts in the thread since you posted the first time in January.
    • In January I worked a total of 26 days of the 31.. 14+h a day... SO, do the math.. I did it for ya.
      26x14=364 31x24h=744 364/744=.489247%... So, 48% was at work, so the other can be sleep.. Or, the 120 I had off..

    I can go into more detail about it, if you want.. But, those two can work just as well..

    Re post the 2 favorites and I'll get to ya..

    Respect for the dead those who have a life.
    :respect:

    Code Geass. and Code Geass R2. If you count them as one, you can throw in Black Lagoon with it.

    I hate math...

    I'll add the both of ya tomorrow after work since I work only 8h.


    The requirement is two, but if you got a few more there isn't a problem with adding.. We all have our top 5. I just want to know the ones that will "should" never change.

    DO NOT download the crunchysub\ horriblesub version. only the 1st 8 minutes are subbed. Bleachverse has the full episode translated.:toast:

    Anyone watched the "Masou shounen" yesterday??
    Lots of fanservice and equal amounts of blood and action...
    All in all it was a great episode...

    Did Dattebayo stopped subbing it or what ? Back when I was watching it, They were the best subbers around.

    They used to do bleach and naruto, but they ragequit, they also did 07-Ghost which was a good anime and did Hakuoki recently and finished, as for now, they seems to be slowly subbing old anime Ninkuu, which i actually watched a couple episodes but there where no subs back then and they might complete it...
    End of the story...

    I love anime, I got into as a young teen watching the Dragonball series, and have watched probably hundreds since then... My two favorite at the moment are Naruto: Shippuden and Bleach (although the fillers really piss me off, lol) :toast:

    Started Shakugan no Shana just now. Not too bad, but I have watched too many JC Staff things these few days that I can recognise their (art) style immediately. Is that healthy?

    they also bumped um the image quality of the source material, so it makes it much more watchable

    That makes you a perfectly healthy otaku...

    U mean ninkuu??
    I only remember the ugly faced protagonist and Megumi Hayashibara from that one...

    just watched Bleach 308, ichigo returns and man, does he look badass, he's more menacing than he was in full hollow mode, his new visual is great, the episode was great and bleach looked epic again...

    He looks a little too emo for my liking with the long hair (spikey orange hair ftw!). But the badassness of the rest of the new ichigo more than make up for it. Can't wait until 309...

    zombies probably the best comedy this season, although being a parody show it may put off people who havent watched much anime since they wont get the references.

    I'm finding level e to be the best of this season, although i haven't checked hourou musuko out yet.

    Also 'Dat Midriff'.

    Level E is very good, a great comedy and where they can fool the viewers easily...
    The alien assassin teacher was actually cool...
