Title: General Anime Thread
Post by: Bloom on 01 September 2019, 20:28:22
Since Yui seems to be a big fan to the point of knowing the names of zanpakuto, I'm starting this thread here.
 Originally for Bleach, but now for general anime.

What's the best Bleach opening theme, anyway? Yui says it's #13 followed by #10, #5 and #3...

Double Post!
* thread takes x2 damage *

So, this is now a general anime thread.
Yu-Gi-Oh! and Pokèmon have their own threads, as does Ace Attorney (I hear that got an anime).

To watch at some point:
- Neon Genesis Evangelion
- Spider Riders

... that's it?

Currently, the anime I have on DVD are Madoka Magica, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Akira, the latter two I haven't watched yet (though I've watched Neon Genesis Evangelion twice and also End of Evangelion).
Other anime I've watched include:
Bakugan (with my brother)
Neon Genesis Evangelion
End of Evangelion
Rebuild of Evangelion 1.0 and 2.0
Madoka Magica
Perfect Blue
Persona 4: The Anime
Yu-Gi-Oh/Yu-Gi-Oh GX/Yu-Gi-Oh 5DS(with my brother)

Yeah, not very much.

"Yu-Gi-Oh!/Yu-Gi-Oh! GX/Yu-Gi-Oh!"

Whuh?

Well, their names get wackier, I'll admit.
"5Ds" (we have a 5DS now?).
"ZEXAL" (the "X" was silent in Japan?).
"Arc-V" (with its crazy Zarc plot where INTEGRATION SUMMON exists).
"VRAINS" (sounds cyberspacey).

What next?
"7Luckiest"?

And don't get me STARTED on Powerpuff Girls-- wait, that's Western Animation.

But... I wonder what Japan calls Western animation?

* asks JapanMan *

JapanMan: "Wakarimasen!"

Huh?

Huh, reminds of that time where all of Shane's forums were called Astrum/Astrum GX/Astrum 5DS. Then things went off the rails at some point.
Back to topic: if you do watch Neon Genesis Evangelion and finish the series, I recommend that you watch End of Evangelion. It's much darker than the series, but it's worth the watch.

I'm not letting this thread go to waste. Two weeks ago, I decided to rewatch Madoka Magica in order to help me through my despair. It was a great idea and I've only grown to love the anime more now. Before I took the week off, I went and watched Death Parade. For a 12 episode anime, it's neat. The show is well animated, the characters are likeable and the premise (arbitors judging dead souls by making them play games) is fun for what it is. It's also more poignant than the OP would suggest (kinda like how Madoka Magica is far darker than it's OP), and while I do think it could use a second season, it was fun for what it was though I doubt I'll rewatch it.

So far Neon Genesis Evangelion, Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Revolutionary Girl Utena are my favourite anime, and I would rewatch them again and again.
