Default The Unofficial Anime/Manga Thread of SoL!




This is the new official Anime and Manga thread of SoL! You can discuss any form of anime or manga here, just no slash, yaoi or porno as well as video games, fan art and memes related to them! You can also write anime-based essays for people to discuss, ignore, and enjoy at their leisure!

Ok I didn't want to create this thread but some people say I should post anime-related things in an anime thread, and I don't want to necro the old one, plus I want to make a thread to talk about both Anime and Manga.

So by the blessings of Great Thornby, Great Yuber THIS THREAD IS HEREBY OPEN FOR POSTING!!


ALL HAIL YUBER!! ALL HAIL LELOUCH!!! SIEG ZEON!!

And to kick things off, here's a post celebrating the stupidity of Gundam SEED!!(misspelling intentional)

================================================== ===
Cagalli; You wrong to invade Orb, you just bullies!"

Zaft: But you are hiding the Djibril, the Demons that's killing everyone for the lulz!"

Cagalli" Um, yah butz......Orb has iz rights! You all mean!"

Zaft: Damn it Orb, thanks to you the Demons got away and nukked us with Requiems!

Cagalli: So what, your boss the EBIL, with his EBIL planning and plotting!

Zaft: NO YOU ARE THE DEMONS! WE GOT THE NUKKED AND ITS YOU FAULT!

Cagalli: That's still not as EBIL as telling people what there lives should be!
================================================== =


Let the anime talk begin!

------------------------------------------------

Anyways my question is: Should I watch Code Geass R1 & R2? It's in my sights for some time now and I want to know if it's worth watching. It it something that I would enjoy? I want opinions from people other then Yuber.

Dragon Ball Z is awesome! But really, I have no idea what you just typed about below the image.

Anywho... have you tried Hellsing and/or Shaman King? Didn't like Hellsing that much but Shaman King rocks to this day in my eyes.

What I typed was a lulzy interpretation of the poorly done Gundam SEED Destiny, the worst Gundam anime ever. I did it on purpose.

And no, not at the moment.

Watch Code Geass. I don't even like mechas, but god damnit Code Geass is the best anime I've ever seen. You will love it if you liked Death Note.

Other of my favorites is FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Damn... I've even considered to show it to my ex literature teacher (yeah, it is THAT good IMO).

I just finished watching Puella magi Madoka magica, 12 episodes of fucking creepy,i suggest anyone that can to see it, the real story starts at episode 3, which the story at first looks like girl makes a contract with a angelic being to be granted a wish in trade for fighting witches, but it really is:
[SPOILERS BELOW]












A sufficient advanced alien hive mind(the angelic being) grant prepubescent teenage girls wishes(wishes are granted but distorted), and turns them into liches(magical girl) to fight Eldritch abominations(witches), which are really liches which phylactery(soul gems) have been tainted by karma of them doing good, so the alien can take the corrupted phylacterys(Grief Seed) off the eldritch abomination corpse to get more energy to starve of the Heat death of the universe.

Yes the story is that messed up even trough it has a good ending

I liked Death Note and I liked Gundam series, I heard Code Geass is sorta like both of these shows in characterization. So yeah, don't be surprised if I like it.

I am also inclined to watch Code Geass because of it's involvement for that crossover game in the PSP, and if I like it, that will be my main reason to buy a PSP.
On a similar note I am also taking a break from 4chan. Apparently people are complaining of the inability to change the fate of this character from Code Geass R1(forgot his or her name, please don't spoil it) in that game I mentioned and derailing every thread about the game because of this. So I quit, for now.

Geass is a good show, if...well, don't go into it expecting anything deep. Go in for the mecha, for Lelouch's schemes, and how FABULOUS~ it all is, and you won't be disappointed.

I will admit, the middle of R2 kinda drags on, but it picks back up. Its just a fun ride.

I've been meaning to watch Madoka, just haven't really fit it in. Will at some point. I'm also rereading Fruits Basket (yeah its a girl's manga, so sue me, its one of my favorites), especially as I've been buying what volumes I don't have since Tokyopop is closing its doors.

If anyone wants a suggestion, Darker than Black is a good one. First season anyway, haven't seen the second (I've heard...things about it, but I intend to see it anyway, if only for completion's sake). Three words: Chinese Electric Batman.

Coincidently I just started watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Just finished episode 3 and it seems to be quite a Crap Saccharine World.

Me like.

Watch "Honey and Clover." You won't regret it.

Same with "Tatami Galaxy."

Code Geass is also a good watch, with its trainwreck of a story and the JIBUN WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-riffic intro.

If you are a tech nut, there are shows like Serial Experiments: Lain, Dennou Coil and Real Drive.

If you want some relaxation, just watch Sketchbook.

One show I could never really get into was Ghostory. Yes, it was sort of decent, but I don't get why some people out there think it's a deep anime.

Had the girlfriend watch Akira over the weekend with me.

She enjoyed it, so I was happy.

She also really likes Berserk. To a disturbing degree.

I was rather skeptical for the first 2-1/2 episodes of Puella Magi, but I really liked how the show developed. And the Faust quotes scribbled on some walls were a nice touch.

I never got into Madoka. Maybe because Shaft cranked their weird bullshit to an unbearable level.
