Finished it. What the fuck. :lol

That was my exact reaction the first time I watched it.  :lol

Don't bother with Death and Rebirth. Go straight into End of Evangelion.

I mean, I understood what was going on for the most part, but still didn't expect that :P

I'll watch D&R, because I want to recap what happened before tackling EoE.

Welp, finished with it. That was quite a mindfuck, but not really impossible to understand as many have said. So yeah, loved Evangelion  :metal

OK, now you can start Rebuild :D

Regarding this season, so far I have only been watching Little Witch Academia (though I'm a few episodes behind). I may check out Chaos;child because I like Nitro+ a lot, and I may check out AoEx because I watched the first series.

I agree, this season is really weak. The only two shows that really stand out are Konosuba Season 2 and Little Witch Academia. I also like a few other currently airing anime, but I'd be hard pressed to recommend them to most people.

Though the season could be worse. It could be this coming Spring.

Crunchy pass for anyone interested, I literally never use these things and am starting to feel bad about seeing all the expired unused ones so...here's a bunch in one swoop:

YN3XRELCUGK

MRCUCCVGKCQ

9MUQF6UWLHV

I'm binging DBSuper, really awesome stuff. I didn't expect to like it this much but I'm loving it. I'm reading a bunch of manga that are very intense and heavy and have stories like labyrinths so it's nice to kick back and just watch some constipated motherfuckers blast shit at each other with a lot of humor sprinkled in between it all.

This season ended up being considerably better than expected. I didn't watch too terribly much, but everything I did finish was worthwhile.

1. Konosuba 2
2. Little Witch Academia
3. Sangatsu no Lion

It's a shame that Sangatsu's second half wasn't nearly as compelling as its first.

Literally the only Spring title I have any expectations for is Sakura Quest. I hope it and LWA can hold me over until what may be the final Monogatari season airs this Summer.

Im still pretty new to anime. Im taking a break from watching dragon ball Z for the first time. I really enjoyed Dragon ball and while there are parts of DBZ that I really like my god theres a lot of filler lol. If I ever decide to watch it again I'm going with kai.

So for right now I decided to check out Cowboy Bebob. I'm only 2 episodes in but I already love it.

Finished it some days ago, it was a fucking trip. Good stuff. Now, because I've been digging lots of pretty dark, surreal stuff both in anime and movies and games lately, began with Mushi-shi for a change of mood. And I'm digging it quite a bit.

Well, bumping this thread because I really want to get this out there.

So I've been liking two romcom slice of life-like animes that the summer season has been providing.  Gamers! and Tsurezure Children.  What can I say.  I'm a sucker for this kind of genre of anime and I enjoy the characters and the banter of the relationships so far and the fact that these people are so daff and have so much miscommunication with the person they like a lot, but it's nice to see when they can finally sort themselves and their friendships out and establish some good pairings.

I mean if I'm grinning a lot while watching this, it's a good sign for me that I like it.

Watched Madoka Magica recently and the third movie as well. Very interesting dark twist in the magic girl trope. Also started The Tatami Galaxy, the pace is fucking crazy at time but so good so far. And rewatching Death Note for old time's sake :P

Here's probably the only anime that I legit like from the Fall season, this year.  Net-juu no Susume (Recovery of a MMO Junkie).  It's about a 30-year women that quit her corporate job and became a NEET.  Decided not to deal with the real world nowadays and find solace in an MMORPG, apparently that's similar to another MMO that she played in the past until work got in the way, and found this female character and they formed this nice dynamic/friendship with each other.  Oh yeah, and the main character is playing a male character and it's alleged that the female character in the game is actually a pretty decent-looking bloke (it's actually not that uncommon for guys to play female characters in MMORPGs for whatever reasons).

As a guy that was basically a NEET, at this point last year, and a guy that does find solace playing a MMORPG (World of Warcraft, baby) and does struggle with social anxiety at times, I feel like I relate well to the main character and how she interacts in the online game and how she interacts with society outside of the game.  It's a good watch so far, three episodes.  I'll most likely stick around and follow the whole series this season.

I watched anime when I was a kid. By my late teens I dipped out, but I do still have a soft spot for the anime I grew up watching, and actually follow Dragon Ball Super. But that's about it.

However, as of last week I finally started rewatching Yu Yu Hakusho. That was one of my favorites growing up, and it's still funny and dark and fun to watch, if full of holes and a bit amateurish. I never got to finish it because Toonami stopped playing in the afternoons after school, so I got cut off in the middle of the Dark Tournament (4 PM sharp central time, I believe it was...) - but I recently found all the episodes and started from the beginning. Still so good and one of the best opening theme songs ever. So now I'm starting season 3 which I've never seen before. This takes me back. I love these characters.

Other favorites: Tenchi (mainly Muyo), DBZ, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Sailor Moon, Outlaw Star... a lot of shonen stuff from back in the day

Bump. I just want to say that I probably shouldn't have finished YYH. They completely ruined it with the last arc. Ruined... ugh. Although one thing that really surprised me was the inclusion of an openly gay character in the third arc. In a nearly 30 year old anime that was very unexpected.

Two weeks and episodes in, I still really like Recovery of a MMO Junkie.

It may be me getting old and life getting in the way, but I find the key characters to be much interesting and relatable than say a typical shonen anime (which to me has gotten pretty bland and boring and cliche to go through).  It's a nice change of pace to see romance incorporated in an anime where the characters are in their 20s, early 30s and they have their own personal social issues and they are not dense or yells a lot.

Heck, the latest episode of it got me saying, "Holy cow, this guy is a beast and I love him for it!" and he's doing nothing more but logging out of the game and running out of his house in the spur of a moment sensing an opportunity.

Finished both - damn Tatami was excellent, very unconventional yet lovely series, and the last two episodes just got to me. Gorgeous stuff. And Death Note, I had forgotten how smart it was, even if some of L's and mostly Near's deductions were a bit too accurate most of the time.

Oh, and finally finished Mushi-shi. It's the anime equivalent to ambient music, and there's some pretty dark ambient here at times. Didn't love it, but it got me intrigues enough to give the sequel a chance. At least the slow pace is relieving after such intense shows I'm watching  :lol

Funny, I just binged season 1 since I finished it years and years ago when I used to watch it stoned out of my mind. I'm happy to say I loved it just as much sober as I did when I was tasting colors and seeing sounds.

I do need to catch season 2 though.

Just finished it, holy shit  :hefdaddy . It was one hell of an emotional roller coaster and I highly recommend it, pretty creative and unconventional series. Now, gonna take a long break from anime, I feel overwhelmed but also happy to end this period on such a high note.
