The off-topic anime discussion

As @Kardul and I were discussing in their AMA, anime is something many have strong opinions over.

This thread is intended to allow us to discuss our favourite anime!

A short selection of some of my favourites, in no order (maybe updated as I recall more):

  • The Guyver (prefer 1989 version; nostalgia)
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • Fullmetal Alchemist (both)
  • Dragonball (mostly Z, GT and Super)
  • Naruto
  • Tekkaman
  • Soul Eater
  • Legend of the 4 Dragon Kings (Sōryūden)

No, Pokémon and Digimon don’t feature here - I was always more of a fan of the games and pocket pets!

This topic isn’t meant to be too serious so please be respectful. Have fun!

Yes! Can’t wait for the next season. I keep getting manga spoilers on YouTube :joy::joy::joy:

Love these, too.

Netflix has been screaming at me to try this. I haven’t made the time yet but maybe I should.

Especially after how they ended Season 4. But just 60 more days!

Yes! It’s a really good anime. But then again, I’ve said that about every anime I’ve watched. :face_with_monocle:

Oh there are definitely some difficult ones to watch!

Some of the classics can be the worst and I won’t discuss the contents or name them as it is not appropriate for the forums.

More recently, Berserker and TerraFormars had its moments, too!

I’m not exactly sure what anime is. Was samurai jack anime? I liked that show.

That’s a really good point. Traditionally, the term was reserved for cartoon depictions of Japanese comic books called Manga. Now the term is much looser and can encompass many animated shows from Asian regions; but, usually it still needs to have been a print form first.

Is eating potatoes a form of “potato abuse”???

That’s “Potato Murder.”

Well lock me up because I’m a murderer

I won’t lock you up since I eat French fries, but just so Fiery doesn’t get mad at me for murdering potatoes, I’ll lock you up for being on Team Chunk.

I didn’t say I aye potatoes now did I?

List of anime I enjoy:
Elfen lied
Berserk ( the manga is superior in term of art and story but it’s still acceptable , the 1996 version not the 2016 abomination)
Boku no hero academia
Tokyo ghoul ( the manga is ways better)
Parasites: the maxim ( this one I kinda like both manga and anime)
Dorohedoro ( the manga is creepier vibe but not a bad CGI anime)
Kimetsu no yaiba ( the anime is definitely more beautiful than the manga in this case, i watch the mugen train 3 times already :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:)
Forgot theses:
Violet evergarden ( beautiful story)
Full metal alchemist : brotherhood
Fireflies grave ( only cry 8 times while watching)
Deathnote ( the potatoes chips scenes is the best, change my mind)
Ancient magus bride
Inuyasha ( how can I forget this beauty)
