^ Exactly why i don't like Fairy Tail.

I used to like Fairy Tail, but I got tired of it after the main characters kept getting back up from near-defeat by using friendship power-ups.

Fairy Tail is bad, and I tell others to avoid it.

Worked until 1030pm so it's a gaming night tonight. Anyone have a recommendation for something on either Netflix or Hulu? I'd like dubbed, but I can definitely live with subbed. Otherwise I'm going to be watching Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.

On Toonami I only watch Akame Ga Kill, and I watched the 2nd episode of Parasyte yesterday. It's not that bad I just need to see the rest. Sometimes I watch Dragon Ball Z Kai, but not as much since I've seen the original Dragon Ball Z.

Akame Ga Kill is probably the best show. I do not watch Parasyte. It is the only show that I have boycotted watching on Toonami. Dragon Ball Z Kai, is an okay opening show.

Have you read the manga for Akame ga Kill? The anime adaptation is alright, but I wish they had followed the manga until the end instead of making an original anime ending. This prevents the anime from getting another season.

I'd always prefer watching the show first and If possible the manga. If you ask yourself why, Well because I know the manga is legitimate and show is to, but most anime's are switched between the shows and mangas. I just have to wait and see what happens. Since the dubbed version Is every Saturday.

I've been finding Akame Ga Kill kinda meh. Parasyte seems pretty cool after watching the first episode. That's some Cronenberg, Stuart Gordon, John Carpenter shit right there.

I read the manga , but I treat the anime as a different thing. Just like when I watch a Marvel film and have read the comic.

In all honesty, I'm not really feeling too crazy for either Parasyte or Akame Ga Kill, which is kind of weird considering that a lot of my favorite anime are usually spilling with blood and violence, at least the anime versions. At least in the latter's case, they aren't afraid of killing the main cast off, so there's some incentive to which member of Night Raid gets whacked next, along with the next bad guy as well. In both cases though, you're better off reading the manga.

One thing that does annoy me about AGK is that there is often such a sudden shift in tone every few moments, it's literately bone-jarring. I understand wanting to lighten up the mood to keep it from taking itself too seriously, but there are much better ways of putting in humor in a dark series like AGK. In fairness, after watching/reading Berserk and Hellsing Ultimate {both are over the top in carnage and grimdarkness, but Berserk plays it seriously while Hellsing relishes in cartoon-y absurdity of it all} it's kind of hard to take any anime that seems to follow in its footsteps seriously ever again, and that's not including the works of Go Nagai, but maybe that's just me speaking.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

i prefer the original manga of parasyte over the anime, it has that 80's monster movie vibe that reminds me of films like basket case and xtro.

Yeah, the anime was making me think of like the Thing or From Beyond or the Society or some other trippy '80s practical effects madness.

The Parasyte anime is bad. I have not heard one viewer say anything good about it.

They probably didn't like it for the same reason why they didn't like the Tokyo Ghoul anime. It's because the censorship ruins everything. Plus, the anime tends to change things from the manga. Lots of important details are left out in the anime.

Most people watch anime for cute girls. It can be hard to like a shown in which body parts mutate into aliens.

I highly doubt that's the reason why most people watch anime. I think they watch it for the story, action, and character development. Plus, there are some anime with stuff just as grotesque as Parasyte, but people still like them.

Have you never heard of cosplayers that dress up as the cute anime girls? Have you never seen people argue over who their anime wife would be? Many anime viewers do indeed just watch it for the cute girls.

I agree.
She does look like a guy.

why am i not surprised that you two are unable to notice the subtle differences that's apparent in female facial anatomy? read an art book and get learned.
