    A 7 minute conversation on how to eat pastries.

    I could feel my brain cells vaporizing....
    I got to around 4:37 and then I had to stop. D:
    God, those voices annoy me soooooooo much!!!
    I want to rip out their vocal cords!!!!!

    Oh dear god. Does anything actually, you know, HAPPEN AT ALL in this anime? I could only stand watching the first three minutes. All those cutsey faces and mutli-coloured hair....and the dynamics of eating pastries.

    Seriously though, do people prefer these types of anime to ones that have more of a story and meaning behind them, and actually have some form of sense? I don't know how anyone could stand that for an extended period.

    Kira Vincent Davis. Luci Christian. Chris Autin. Hilirary Haag. Cynthia Martinez. Nancy Novinity.
    Monica Rial. Andrew Love. Just to name a few.
    Some English dubs are definately better than others, I agree. Probably because we can understand and relate to the changes in pitch and tone (such as sarcasm) far better than if it was in Japanese. But some should just never have been done.

    One of my favourite English dubs is in The Meloncholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, with Kyon's character (Crispin Freeman). He was so good at getting Kyon's cynicism. However, I hate Mikuru's voice, it's horribly high-pitched. You get used to it, but still. No one talks that high.

    (If you do, somehow, then I apologize).

    But they were all very good at the home-made video episode and doing the bad voice-acting on purpose to make them look like bad actors.



    This is halfway through the episode. How awesome is Kyon's commentary?

    Okay. Not anyone is crazy for english dubbed. So, here is one of my favorite scene from Haruhi
    Suzumiya. It's englished subbed.



    enjoy

    Elfen Lied is pretty much the only anime that survived my great purge of '09. Damn good show

    I'm mixing manga in with my list because I don't watch too many anime series.

    Blood+
    Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
    Lucky Star
    Shugo Chara!
    +Anima
    Battle Royale
    Yotsuba&!
    xxxHolic
    Negima!
    Love Hina

    Of course, I've watcehd what some people classified as "beginner animes"...your Inuyasha, Full Metal Alchemist, Death Note, Naruto (even though I dislike it)....But I haven't watched them in a while and don't really say they are my favorites. I just like them...except Naruto.

    ....OH, and Shin Chan. Shin Chan is hilarious.

    You only watched part of the very first episode...ROFL.
    To me, Lucky Star is pretty entertaining. Not every anime/manga sereies has to have some deep-rooted plotline, hardened characters and every other thing people think makes for the perfect formula...
    It's nice to watch something that can be fun and lighthearted for a change.

    Oh yes. Elfen Lied is the ultimate. And I love the Lilium song. It made me an anime junkie
    next to Lucky Star.

    My recent watch, the return of Ikki Tousen (2010). Clannad (So Beautiful!!) Popotan ( I adore it but it kind of sad)

    My favorite Anime is Death Note, though it only had 2 seasons, it is a amazing show in my opinion. I love the plot, and the character development.

    I'm not saying anime should have a "hardened" plot and characters, just that I couldn't stand something that just appeared unbearably cute. You are right though, I have only watched part of the first episode, so it's too early for me to shout from the rooftops. Bear in mind I was making my way through Death Note (again) during the time I watched that, so....you can see why I might have thought that.

    I completely forgot to mention OHSHC English Dub! They're absolutely my favourite voice cast (and not just because of Vic or Travis).

    Has anyone here seen Chaos Head? I love how it completely messes with your head, until the whole "conspiracy company" plot showed up in the last episodes.

    Well, then...
    xD
    I guess that's the perfect time to be interrupted with Kona-chan figuring out which end of a chocolate corner is "the head".

    Ugh, too much cuteness. I'd almost post a Gantz clip for some much needed balance

    Or, maybe the last few episodes of Berserk when the crap really hits the fan!

    I haven't been keeping up with Anime lately. DBZ is awesome. I first started watching The Guyver back in High School, series and movies. I saw Akira around that time. Robotech, all of that stuff. Ghost in the Shell was good. Cowboy Bebop, movie and series.

    I also liked Big O, some Tenshi (the copy-cat DBZ tournament stuff ), Gundam Wing, some of the other Gundam series (from the first one to ones that cane after Wing)... I've seen others I've liked, I think, but I can't remember them right now.

    Sailor Moon, Digimon, Dragon Ball Z....man, those were my childhood TV/anime memories. That and Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Cardcaptor Sakura.

    Hey, has anyone heard Kyon's version of Hare Hare Yukai before? It's quite funny really:

    I love anime, though, I'm unable to watch much of it. I don't have the money or the time to explore farther into the fandom. So I'm not a huge otaku. My favourites include: "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya", "Oran High School Host Club" and "Death Note".

    I've read the Manga "Loveless" but haven't had the pleasure of watching the anime, yet.

    I never heard that one before. But quite good. Sounds relaxed atmosphere.

    Well, alright! Another anime fan. I'm sorry, but, I find myself to love anime!!
    Did I mentioned "CLANNAD"? Oh, that is one beautiful piece of work. And I love the music in it (Dango Daikazoku).

    Finally, another Ouran fan! What's your type, Tessa?

    I completely forgot about manga - anyone read Fruits Basket or Fushigi Yugi? Those are the only two I've read, but they both were excellent. I'm reading through 07-Ghost online too, because it's not available here.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the anime that started the fad here in the US.
    Star Blazers (aka Space Battleship Yamamoto). It's a classic that just can't be topped.

    I'm also more into the older, (maybe slightly kinky) type of anime.
    Nuku Nuku - My all-time favorite (the original series, but Nuku Nuku TV is ok)
    Project A-ko - all the different variations. Things get pretty strange here.
    Dirty Pair - fun, comedy, action. Hot chicks with guns.
    Jubei chan - this is just lots of fun. Ancient swordsman takes over girl's body.
    Amazing Nurse Nanako - this one is for the boob freaks (no porn, I promise)

    A few standalone movies,
    Night on the Galactic Railroad - amazing symbolism from a critical point in Japan's history. Must see this one.
    Lily Cat
    Kotetsu

    Star Blazers. Well, it goes back to the 80's. Also Voltron. Anime in the US goes back I guess since Speed Racer (1960's)

    I seriously must have must have missed this train:
    YIPYIP

    Most people say that Avatar: TLA was not "true anime" because it doesn't originate in Japan. But the term "anime" in Japan refers to all animation...I should most likely edit my post with my favorites. Regardless, I flipped shizz when I found out about this.
