What's your favorite animes ?

Well I only just got interested in Anime so I don't know much about it. But I've been watching ''Bleach'' for some time now and I have to say it's pretty awesome! I love characters and humor, especially Rangiku Matsumoto. I had her picture as avatar before my current one.
Also Pokémon! :D

And I saw Anime-movie some time ago called ''Summer Wars''. It was quite good. I never thought that you could mix science-fiction, comedy, disaster, action and family drama all into one movie and make it absolutely fantastic!

Meh I used to watch Dragonball Z and Digimon when I was a kid, but I don't like them now. Pokemon I still watch though. And Bleach on the other hand I hope nobody watched as a kid, otherwise they would be messed up now lol. That anime is for teens and adults.

I'm a guy after all, there is nothing bad in some violence as long as you are not applying it in real life.... on scale of 1 to Mariah Carey's movie career how bad am I coming off here? :lol:

Pokemon is by far my favourite anime... I am not really into it anymore although I have some great memories of it growing up. My life was just literally Pokemon ( :geek: ) and I used to go to Trading Card events ( :ugeek: ) (OMG it's sooooo embarrassing!!!! :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: ) I rapidly lost interest in it though once it expanded beyond Kanto (Johto was ok but not the same and after that it is just ridiculous!! :roll: ). Also, as I got older I went off anime.

My fave Pokemon were:
#002 Ivysaur

#004 Charmander

#006 Charizard

#120 Staryu

#121 Starmie (my fave of all - if I had a Pokemon I would choose Starmie :mrgreen: )
http://pokemondb.net/images/artwork/starmie.png

My fave characters were:
Jessie

^OH MY GAWD! xheart
I'm still huge Pokemon fan, especially games (Anime got kinda lame after Johto as you say). It's so nerdish at my age, but what the heck I love it.
Jesse and James were my favorite characters and my fav Pokemon are Eevee and Zangoose.

Yeh I was never keen on Ash Ketchum!! :lol: Team Rocket are just the best though!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I played LeafGreen actually. It was quite good, but SoulSilver and HeartGold are much much better! You get both Kanto and Johto AND all Pokemon, even those from Hoenn and Sinnoh. :D

I didnt get anymore games after FireRed. I missed LeafGreen though coz you cant get Staryu or Starmie on FireRed. I know you can trade but by the time those games came out, all my friends had gone off Pokemon so I couldnt have the Water/Psychic starfish. xcry xcry xcry

I never bother myself with trading much. It's too complicated. :lol: Starmie was actually my favorite Pokemon when I was a kid and Pokemon just got out in Croatia. And people thought it was weird 'cause everybody's fav was Charizard.
New Black & White versions that are about to come out will present Generation 5 Pokemon... and OMG they are soooooo ugly except for little Chinchilla one. :D

The games look good... I just dont think I can ever get into it again with like 500 Pokemon. xcry
I dont know why they couldnt just have new adventures with the same 101 original Pokemon. xshrug

This is the classic era:

Well 'cause it would get a bit bland. But yeah I agree that there are too many right now. But in Black & White you can only get new Pokemon that go with those games. It's great because there won't be too many Pokemon, but lame because 90% of new ones suck. :lol:

And woo for that theme! Definitely best one. New ones are pathetic, no feeling at all. :(

The new Pokemon are just basically 4 times copied from the originals with slight differences. xsnooty
Oh Im getting emotional now about my childhoold happiness :lol: :lol: I remember getting up an hour early before going to school to watch it and then running home from school to catch the Afternoon show... I would do anything to go back to those days. xcry xcry xcry xcry xcry

I remember I used to imagine Pokemon was real and I would dream about my 6 Pokemon every night and I would become the ultimate trainer. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I dont think I could battle them though, I would have them as pets. :lol: :lol:

I am gonna go to bed now... I might have a look for Charmander in my cupboard and cuddle him! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Argh, I was always frightened by Jynx. :P

I've always watched anime!

When I was younger I used to love Pokemon, Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon and Trigun.

As an 'adult' (a very immature one at that!), my favourite anime have included things like Fullmetal Alchemist, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Hellsing and Paranoia Agent. Anime is so diverse that there is something for everybody, of all ages!

I've been known to cosplay at the London Expos too. :oops:

Keko
12th August 2010, 13:59
Jynx are cool. Not my favorite Pokemon, but one of funniest that's for sure. :D

I heard about Fullmetal Alchemist, but never watched it. I'll wait until ''Bleach'' ends. So many TV shows I don't have time for them all. :lol:
I'd love to try cosplay just once 'cause it seems plenty of fun. :D But there are almost no conventions at all in Croatia and besides I don't really know how to make costumes lol so... damn. :(

MyHeartIsYours
12th August 2010, 14:04

Didnt they have to change her face to purple or something though coz it was seen as being racist to have it black? :lol: :lol:

12th August 2010, 16:31
Yeah, when I was searching for a picture I stumbled upon this information and was shocked. Stupid people... How can rasicm stop if they see racism in things that aren't rasict? :lol: :?

PoppySnuggleGlass
12th August 2010, 22:43
Jynx was mistakenly believed, by Western media companies, to have been a racist depiction of black people, when in actual fact she was meant to be a parody of Japanese 'Ganguro girls.'

Rather than go through the (difficult) effort of trying to describe what one of these is, I'll just post a picture:
http://www.sfreeper.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/ganguro-girl-phone.jpg
I think I've found something more terrifying than Jynx! :lol:

That's not to say that Japanese anime/manga artists haven't drawn borderline racist depictions of black people before. Mr. Popo for example:
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_g42gTPfxxbA/R ... mrpopo.jpg (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_g42gTPfxxbA/Rbd2eQsRd8I/AAAAAAAAACw/QSWi2R6YSMA/s400/mrpopo.jpg)

I don't think there is any malign intent behind it, I just don't think they realise how it might be offensive to black people. :|

Oh and Freak for Life, I'm glad you have a positive attitude towards cosplay. Usually I have to keep it a secret as people are like "why on earth would you want to do that?" It is good fun. Just like fancy dress, but with game or anime characters instead.

Thankfully it's gaining a bit more respectability in Europe, esepcially with Eurocosplay (cosplay's version of ESC) coming to London in October:
[youtube:xxxadot8]e17bxv1rk3I&feature=related[/youtube:xxxadot8]

I've heard about cosplay events in Hungary, namely Sakura-Con, but I've not heard about any in Croatia either. :(

I shall have to bring you to the London Expo. :mrgreen:

I started to watch a new anime, '' Gosick '' It still ongoing, it has 24 episodes totally and 3 episodes have been released so far, next episode will be released on 28 january

http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/anime/7/22180.jpg

Synopsis

The year is 1924, the place, Sauville, a small European country neatly tucked beside the Alps...

Kazuya Kujo has been studying abroad at the prestigious Saint Marguerite Academy, where urban legends and horror stories are all the rage. Most Kazuya ignores but the story of the Queen Berry, a mysterious ghost ship, really gets to him. Of course, his brainy friend Victorique is much more intrigued by true stories, and she uses her unrivaled logic to solve mysteries even the town's famous detective can't. Ironically, it is Victorique's inquisitive nature that leads the duo to board a ship that matches the Queen Berry's description to a tee, a ship that might just hold the key to solving a sinister mystery...

I'm in love with Victorique de Blois xheart I like to watch such animes that are set in old times, especially beginning of the 20th century :)

I saw too many Anime. I don't think it's healthy.

So I'll just list them all and add a bit of my opinion.
And videos! Everybody loves videos.

WATCHED (FINISHED):

Slayers - 90's Anime parodying fantasy Anime/Video Games. Very good watch, through first 3 seasons, gets kinda lame afterward. It's mostly humorous (it's a parody so duh), but has some serious plot elements as well.
Opening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R63hK6jPb-s

Durarara - Action Anime set in modern day Japan. It's an amazing watch. Brilliant characters, great plot and really nice mix of everyday situations and fantasy.
Opening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nlDUZ5BkFk

Ouran Hight School Host Club - Now here's something really odd and interesting. Whole thing seems like it's made specifically for crazy Anime fangirls. I wasn't sure what to make of it, but I saw it through the end for the lulz. Opening will make it very clear just what it is.
Opening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr8qaKzSPS8

CURRENTLY WATCHING:

Pandora Hearts - Mystery/Fantasy Anime set in Victorian era. It's epic. That's all there is to it. Love Anime? WATCH IT!
Opening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mtl-49Bgxs

Onmyō Taisenki - *fanboy scream* If you like Pokemon and Digimon than this is something you should add to your watch list. It has interesting plot and at first it may seem like total copy of Digimon, but it gets its own elements after few episodes.
Opening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-n0hZ1G6_w

Claymore - Fantasy Anime, without any sign of humor in it. If you like serious and hard watch than I would recommend it. It has amazing animation, probably best Anime one regarding that aspect. A lot of sword fights and blood so be warned. Hawt girls too =P
Opening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYUl0SudGSw

WATCHED (STOPPED):

Nana - The only reason I started watching it is because my all time favorite song is its ending theme (Olivia - A Little Pain). It's not for everyone I guess. It's like TV drama made into Anime. Completely real-life, interesting watch none the less.
Opening:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMEbt_CQ8fA

This is what I watched during the period of last year. =)
Now I have too much to study, so I don't watch Anime much. I prefer to concentrate on my life instead.



I'm in love with Victorique de Blois xheart I like to watch such animes that are set in old times, especially beginning of the 20th century :)

I should probably check it out once I have time. If you like that kind of Anime I would recommend you ''Pandora Hearts'' since it's set in similar era. =)

23rd January 2011, 00:39
I had watched several episodes of pandora hearts, but then forgot it ^^ savage genius composed its ending theme songs 8-) it's nice that you reminded it me, I'll start to watch it again :)

I've also watched Slayers and OHSHC :D slayers is one of my fave animes from 90s ;)

I'm watching puella magi madoka magica, yumekui merry, kore wa zombi desu ka and fractale, including gosick currently.

I`m a big anime fan :)
I started with DragonBallZ and Detective Conan (in that years RTL ІІ broadcasted animes in the afternoonand I watched them in german :lol:)
The law of Ueki is awesome too :)
After that I didn`t have time to watch anime, but some years ago when my uni started and I have to move in another town I watched NaNa
and it`s the best anime for me now :)
Can`t wait to see the second season when Ai will be healthy to finish the story...yuppie!
The anime is better then the movie imo though ;)
