Cool What Anime Are You Watching?

So why not have an anime discussion thread, since we have one for everything else!?

I'm currently watching four new ones:

Guilty Crown
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon
Maken-Ki!
Persona 4 The Animation

I have become less interested in Naruto and Bleach lately because of poor plot directions and bad fillers.

None at the moment, but I just finished watching Cromartie High not long ago.

Best anime ever. No debate.
except DBZ

I watched "5 Centimeters Per Second" not long ago, and it was brilliant. To bad the story is "unfinished".

I randomly fell upon an anime with ponies called "My Little Pony" xD It's so cute. Been watching it for the past few days. Kind of fruity and tries to push too much educational crap about true friendship for my taste, but the anime it self is kind of cool. Hurts your masculinity though

Used to watch Naruto about a year ago... Kinda got bored somehow and stopped watching.

DBZ was indeed great, hehe... I should rewatch it one day.

That's not an anime.

DBZ was good until Songoku killed Freeza, but later with Cell and that pink dude it just became repetitive. Some new guy comes along and they have to kill him... The whole series was about increasing power levels, instead of learning new battle techniques.

I liked original Dragon Ball much better. More interesting story, better animation, larger variety in characters and more interesting battles(tournaments) and techniques.

I always found its purpose a bit more thematic than either of those, but maybe I looked further in to it than the creator intended.

Disagree. If you can believe it, Dragonball was even more anime-cliche than DBZ was. Everything revolved around panties and old perverts, etc. Besides, my favorite characters (save Goku) weren't even in DB. They all came in after Z picked up.

Japanese (or sometimes, Japanese-styled) animation.

Ops, you are right. It's been a while since I watched it.

Haha, I don't know what anime-cliche is. DB and DBZ are only anime series I watched completely (and I watched it on German TV , that is how I learned German language).

We have completely different opinions about the characters and panties stuff


Edit: By anime-cliche, did you mean about repetitive elements in that series, or stuff that the series took from other series ?

YouTube Video: ANIME FIGHT!


I've been watching quite a few. I used to watch 'em non-stop! XD But I pulled out my old Ranma 1/2 collection to watch whilst I study. That's one of the most nostalgia inducing animes ever. I'm also watching all the DBZ episodes, I'm almost done with Majin-buu's Saga. Then it's onto DBGT (again) which I think is ok. After all, I'm in that one.

There's also this one about a zombie who lives with his necromancer in Japan who eventually meets this (dubbed "Magical Girl") girl who fights evil monsters created on the side by EVIL. Eventually she loses her power and the good ol' zombie boy has to take her place. (And wear her skimpy outfit as he does it.) Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? is the title.

Also LD - I LOVE Maken-ki. You are awesome for watching it.

I loved DBZ. Outlaw Star is another one of my favorites. I'm not currently watching anything, though.

Pan's an awesome character. Really the one redeeming trait from GT, imo.
I also like her power gauge, too. She's tough, but not all bent-up canon-rape like Trunks and Goten in Buu Saga.

Pan is my favourite character and not just for name alone, glad you agree.

Technically all cartoons are considered animation, but people usually refer to Japanese animation when they use the term 'anime' because... they can. It's just become the social definition of the term.

Loved both. I have watched over 150 anime series and have a list of them with my personal ratings. There are a lot of good ones out there.

When I was a kid I watched few episodes of some anime series, but I don't know the name.

It was about a group of people in some big truck that somehow ended up in some other time/dimension which was a mixture of a prehistoric world (there were some dinos around) and high tech world (there were robots and stuff).

In the whole series they searched for some energy cells for the machine that should take them back home.

Does anybody know the name of this series ?

I... think I might have seen an episode of something like this at some point in my life?.... But I honestly can't make out if it's an actual memory or my mind is making it up.

Last few anime that I watched were Utawarerumono, Trigun: Badlands, Nurse Witch Komugi-chan. Samurai Champloo, Sword of the Stranger, and Canaan. Not counting the other anime in my collection that I re-watch every year like Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040, The SoulTaker, Spriggan, Princess Mononoke, and Akira.

My friends and I used to laugh about how it took Goku a week to charge his attack and every episode that week Frieza would just say over and over again "What's that idiot doing? I could kill him right now if I wanted. What's that idiot doing?" Then much later we found out how the show was just waiting for Akira Toriyama to finish writing the story. I'll probably give Dragonball Kai a shot since it's supposedly DBZ minus the filler garbage.

Kai is horrible. The new cuts are less sensible, and they removed Bruce Falconer's masterpiece soundtrack (those bastards..).
Don't bother.

I found that anime I was looking for. Sometimes I just underestimate the power of google and Youtube.

It is called "Jura Tripper" or in German Planet Der Dinosaurier.

I love Falconer's DBZ music. I don't get the purists that prefer the silly Japanese soundtrack.

I only heard in passing something about the soundtrack. If the new cuts are that bad, I guess I'll skip it.

Falconer has literally produced some of the greatest music ever composed, in my opinion. To deliberately not use it when you have the rights to it is just insane. They should be ashamed of themselves.
So many wonderful tracks... I think it was honestly one of the main contributing factors that for me made DBZ so, dare I say, immersive.
