Just reached the halfway point in Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Second season was great, but a bit of a step down from the first. I'm expecting some big stuff will happen soon though.

It is a show about a guy that is an alien hunter, and likes to visit boobies ( space version of Hooters). I have heard many people praise it, but I do not think it is that great.

Sounds like a mix of Cowboy Bebop and City Hunter.

The anime that got me really interested in the genre was Bleach. It's a great series. I recommend it to you, but only if you enjoy long shounen series.

One word of advice: skip the fillers. They're annoying and boring.

Basically anime made for young boys.

What anime have you seen that you liked? Cowboy Bebop is generally considered a good start. And Ghibli movies like Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa and Spirited Away. Those can often appeal to both anime fans and people who don't normally watch anime.

shounen is roughly equivalent to the "young adult" demographic in the west.

Do you prefer sci-fi, or medieval age?

You could start with Space Dandy. Is it a little silly, but has a great sci-fi world.

I've now finished the third season of Legend of the Galactic Heroes, 26 episodes left to go.

In order to avoid spoiling the show for anyone, I honestly can't go into any detail at all about my feelings on any specific events. But those of you that have seen it know exactly what I've just experienced. I'm incredibly interested to see where things go from here, this show has some serious balls.

Finished Legend of the Galactic Heroes last night. I wouldn't say this is my favourite anime, but I'm having a hard time thinking of a series better than this. I doubt it's going to "ruin anime forever" for me but it's definitely going to leave a lasting impression.

The show is fantastic, but it takes some commitment, and that's why I hesitate to recommend this to everyone. It's 110 episodes long, has very little humour, and most of the show consists of people sitting down and talking, standing up and talking, or drinking tea and talking. But if you have a decent attention span and are willing to get familiar with these characters and immerse yourself in the world, those scenes of two people sitting in chairs chatting it up can be some of the most riveting animated scenes you've ever seen. It's a wonderful character-driven story that will take you on a journey filled with military strategy, politics, manly space-emotions, and really leave you wanting a cup of tea. Check it out sometime.

In Attack on Titan, we finally find the identify of the female titan. This is spoiler free.

I'm really glad I gave Kill la Kill another chance. It's been a while since I got into an anime series, and although it can be silly at times, I am enjoying it so far (I'm only about a dozen episodes in).

One Piece has now added another Dragonball cast into their roster as Yamcha's VA is voicing Sabo. I know it's Toei and all and the fact that the author's a fan of Dragonball but still, lol.

I don't get the blonde chick's motivation in Attack on Titan. And I have no clue what was going on with those flashbacks.
