Repeats of One Piece is okay, but I miss new episodes.

Elfen Lied is bad shit and only gets worse from there. Throw on everyone's favourite anime Neon Genesis Evangelion instead of you haven't seen it.

friends of mine have reccomended it but that pushes me not to watch it...

> Elfen Lied

I did enjoy this anime, but i feel as though your right when you say there is much useless violence. This seems cringy in a way so as to attract younger viewers with bad-for-no-reason material.

You never know what they will do next. Just happen for new episodes after the six weeks or so of repeats.

I'm late to the party here. I only ever heard great things about Elfin so I expected real fall out from the bash on it. Glad I never got around to it no from what was said because it really wasn't my cup of tea. Even as a teen, I always though random needless nudity was just a lure for me and the rest of my demographic and really cheapen the experience for me.

A series I loved on IFC channel was Speed Grapher. Here's trailer vid below, but essentially the gist of it is a war photographer turned reported finds his way into a seedy underground sex club for the ultra- rich and elite. When there He interrupts a ritual where a "goddess" is supposed to be bestowing a man with powers and instead, the reporter gains them.The powers gained are directly tied to "what the host wants most in their heart" so plenty of diverse enemies show up through the series. Good violence, not overly sexed up (especially considering how ther series starts in an underground sex club)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFFmMojsg_s

And when in doubt, always Evangelion. Though, it gets a bit too sureal in a few fillery episodes. A series I liked recently which is a nice half way point between Evangelion and the Xenosaga games, is Knights of Sidonia. Think it's a netflix exclusive. Season 1 was better, but there are 2 seasons available.

Here's the opening for season 2, I found it more exciting than the official trailers:

Which one did you watch? Normal or Ultimate?
Because i've only watched Ultimate so i can't vouch for the normal anime although i've heard it's alright so i may give it a chance in the near future.

I thought I'd watch it from the beginning so I could know more about it.
I recommend you watch it, The first episode was awesome.

Oh bro, you can watch Ultimate without watching the normal series, the story is pretty much the same as far as i know. Only difference is there's more violence, gothic themes and each episode is around 1 or so hours long.
I'll give the regular version a shot sometime, though.

I use some app to download anime. It's called animania if you're interested.
There's also this site called Anime1 where you can watch all sorts of anime.

I will check out that website. Thanks for the information.

I guess it'd hard to follow up 2015, though.

It is still January. it will take sometime before 2016 starts to shine.

I recommend you guys watch it.

I will check it out. Writing and story are always better than just mindless action.

By the way what kind of name is Oshino meme?

I will have to find out.

I do. I try to mix it up, so I do not watch the same one over and over. That can be a bit much.

I might re-watch one or two episodes from a series that I really like, but I'll never re-watch the entire series. That would waste too much time, and I could be using that time to watch a new series.

Once all the new series have been seen, you have no choice , and must re-watch an entire series.
