Yeah, I checked those videos Xeo, and it seemed pretty low budget (the animation and such). Maybe I'll put it on my list. Lower on my list. There's a couple others ahead, including Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. I'm gonna download it after I finish up a couple.

Regardless man ... it's one of the most powerful anime's I've seen, emotionally. A big plus over the lacking animation is the music, it's absolutely incredible.

I finished it in 3 days since I'm still in DarkSlaya mode, but yeah, Lagann is probably a bit easier to finish and get into.

My highest recommendations so far:

- Gurren Lagann
- Code Geass
- Toward The Terra

Fun stuff:
- Black Lagoon

I started FMP:The Second Raid. It seems more mature, violent, and cussing!? That's a plus.

Cussing? Didn't they cuss in the first FMP? If they ever shouted "kuso!", then they were basically cussing, and surely Mr. Villain would've been doing that. ^^;

For Bleach, the next episode is not going to be until April. I HATE long waits.

For Gundam 00, a terrible event has occurred. Lockon! Lockon!

For Clannad, it's almost over, so Lagann is ready to take it's place.

Yeah, they cussed, didn't seem like they did as often though.

Man, this series really takes it up a notch. I'm probably just going to stay up all night and finish it (on episode 10 now). It's too good!

Episode 24 was amazing. The preview left me somewhat confused.

Next week is the season finale, then Code Geass takes over the time slot (and when Code Geass is finished, Gundam 00 will take it back)

How long do anime series take to finish usually? Assuming Code Geass R2 will be ~25 episodes again.

I'm not sure if I can keep up with it one episode by one episode ... though I'm much more into anime recently than I used to be when I tried to keep up with Death Note when it was new and whatnot. I ended up just forgetting about Death Note when it was like at episode 4 and stopped watching it. I just love watching anime in bulk, but maybe I'll just watch each episode when they're new and rewatch it all when it's finished?

I think I already said that before earlier somewhere.

Also finished The Second Raid. Amazing!!! Though, I want more! It's obviously not completely finished, is the manga/novel still ongoing or something?

Darker Than Black doesn't seem to be "clicking" for me, maybe it's just not happen' yet. The quality is there though, the visuals are mindblowing.

I should probably pickup Berserk and GITS: SAC again and actually finish them.

I'm downloading Claymore, Gantz, Utawarerumon, Bastard! (lawls), and Jyu Oh Sei for now.

I watched Darker Than Black two days ago, what are you doing?
It wasn't bad, but it's not the best thing I've watched in my life.

Also, what someone suggested on a forum I go to, is to watch Claymore up to episode 21 and then go to the manga. The last few episodes kinda slaughter the series.

Yeah, well I was watching Darker Than Black between some series, Toward The Terra just got me hooked quicker and the same for FMP: TSR. Though with those done I can probably focus on DTB again.

And Claymore, that sounds like things I hear too. Apparently the ending isn't good and the manga continues the series a little more I guess? Well I'll keep that in mind if I start watching it soon.

The manga is still ongoing. Basically, they made the protagonist way too overpowered in the last few episodes in order to end it,

Gross. Another ill-fading ending to a series compared to the manga it sounds like. I guess that may really make me check out the manga, I think the torrent I have is coming with it ... so that's good.

Well I can officially point out some things about Darker Than Black that I don't like. The majority of the characters aren't interesting, the music is just "there" pretty much (disappointing when this show has such good art and visuals), and it's kind of boring how it seems episodic based and they just haven't explained much.

Episodic/short arc's can definitely work, I mean just see Cowboy Bebop and Black Lagoon. But those shows have awesome characters, I can't really say that here so far...

I'm on 11, I'll probably continue watching but I doupt my opinion on this one will change that much unless it dramatically changes.

But I've started Death Note which I already know I'll like (I remember loving the first episodes when I watched them a year ago or whatever) and it still seems awesome.

I'll probably watch Darker Than Black here and there while focusing more on other stuff. It seems okay and worth finishing, but probably a little overhyped I'd say.

Finished Darker Than Black. Decent watch but not something you'll see me talking about I'd say. It just didn't really seem that developed with the characters and there was overall a big lack of a real plot.

Finished Gurren Lagann Ep. 9.

-Episode 6, Yoko's wardrobe malfunction was a hilarious scene.
-Episode 8 was totally epic. Romance, Action, POWER, Grief. It had it all.

That's also pretty much the entire series. With lots of comedy gold thrown in. I loves it.

Haha, episode 6 was hilarious. There's supposed to be like a remix/special OVA of that episode too, haven't seen it myself though.

And yeah, 8 is pure epic. It just keeps getting epic too.

Also, the old Bubblegum Crisis OVA is pure win. It's so 80's it's amazing.

I'm watching Jyu Oh Sei right now. Only 11 episodes long so it probably won't take too long to finish, but it's really good so far.

It's futuristic in a world where people live in colonies and hitting the age of 50 is pretty high. Thor and his brother Rai hope to visist Earth someday. Turns out their parents are murdered and they casted away unto some planet with no technology of any kind (well kind of). Seems fun.

Definitely one of my favorites, very epic.

For me:

Fate/Stay Night - I don't know if I like this. Seems a bit ... childish?
Claymore - Eh, dunno if I like this either.
Utawarerumono - I like it!

I am currently watching almost every anime that has the voice actress Aya Hirano (Haruhi and Konata) in it.

I don't know why, but I wanted too.


I am also watching Ghost Hound and Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.

Funny, same thing for Utawarerumono. Haha.

Kyoku, I've been pretty hyped about Ghost Hound, I've heard people claim it does the horror genre in anime a lot of justice and after watching both Death Note and Monster, I have to say that kind of stuff is incredible. I'll probably check it out once I can find a torrent of the whole series.
