now I love DBZ and hunterxhunter, and full metal alchemist, and a number of other shows out there both new and old.

but I'd like to hear what you guys like to watch out side of the sit coms and big budget movies.

as for me I like evanglion, princess monoka, appleseed (all moives.), spirt away, ghost in the shell, Dragon ball,z, gt(only when it was out), super, and zoids just to name a few.

so please share what show and movies you like both now and when you where younger.

My top 5 anime shows
  1. Black Lagoon
  2. Requiem for the Phantom
  3. Gunslinger Girl
  4. Highschool of the Dead
  5. Kill la Kill
I don't really watch shows anymore so some of these are super old in terms of anime. I kind of just binge things when I'm knocked out by sickness and can't leave the couch:whistle: Most of my knowledge of current stuff comes from memes and cosplay friends. What's good in the most recent seasons?

I’m a guy of animes that want to make your cry, sympathize with the characters and/or really make you piece all the details together.

I liked the movie Your Name and the series Erased.

I think there was a couple I enjoyed, but they dont really stand out.

Funnily enough though, my law lecturer suggested hunter x hunter and damn did i love the final arc.

the ant one is what i meant also
went on forever. think it was the last one
I personally dont think the Chimera Ant arc was bad, it was stretched over 60 eps, but the prior arcs weren’t considered appealing to most of the fanbase, thus why the original 1999 series was cancelled.

As for the majority thoughts on the arc, every forums i’ve seen talk about it was overwhelmingly positive, and the occasional few who disliked it were bombarded with fans calling them “Not true fans” etc.

I liked the character developement and the surprise of established characters being killed off.

I think the more interesting aspect was Gon slowly turning into the monsters he hates.

That’s just my two cents.

In other words, I prefer that a series takes its time to tell a story, aslong as the story is good and makes you wonder about each ep. But I believe the hate for the series was from those who waited for a new ep each week and were dissappointed in the slow developement, unlike me who could binge watch because of being introduced so late (No, i’m not including those shonen jump animes that go on for 1000 episodes)

the 1999 one basically just got through the trials and magic. i thought that it was much better in art personally. especially the battleship trial that was left out of the new one.
i was fine with people getting killed off but kite turning into a girl was disturbing.
also yes, i hate waiting through slow development where basically nothing happens. and i dont like to see main characters turn into monsters (although its fun to write things where that happens.)

You know that Rakin Bass stop-motion Rudolph was filmed in Japan? Technically animu! (in the opening credits you can see "Burl Ives" credited as "Buri Ives, a bit of Engrish silliness going on there).

KONYA WA HURRICANE!

Any Bubblegum Crisis fans?

Well technically it’s because the name Anime was made in Japan, to describe a cartoon from that region, but I understand why weebs hate it being used for anything out of japan because simply put, other regions have their own names for cartoons.

It’s a cultural thing for the Japanese aswell.

Me being from asian ethinicity, recognize that alot of my people don’t like it when another country or race impersonates something from their own country.

Example is a foreign person makes some basic rice and fish meal, but calls it Japanese cuisine despite it not actually being Japanese. It just grinds their gears.

I think it’s more of a respect issue, you just don’t apply names to something that has no relation to the country of origin.

As for weebs however, there’s some irony in being a weeb. To dishone your own culture for Japanese cultural is a taboo on its own and makes you not part of Japanese culture.

They have hogh respect for their heritage, and to throw it away for some foreign culture is greatly looked down upon.

LOL. Don't let any Weebs hear you say that.
To a Weeb if its not made in Japan then its not an Anime.
hey its my way of separating the good stuff and the bad just out right bad stuff. like family guy, bobs burgers, Simpsons, and most of what's on cartoon network is cartoons, now toonmai, chruchyroll, and anime network, and a few other sites I check up on are not hard core anime either, Lucy is a German anime/cartoon a dead pool R anime but it's still a kick ass show.

and then theirs France... lady bug & car noirr... take a year to do one episode for the show and its a cartoon a much better cartoon then some of the things I've watched

needless to say cartoon or anime the weebs don't scare me because in the end i'll just tell them that I stand with TFS who fixed dragon ball z's time line in a way funamtion couldn't.
