Some people have been praising it and some have been shitting on it. I dunno. I'll give it a try. I loved Baccano, so I thought I might like this.

Ga Rei Zero is definitely awesome, I would put the first episode among some of the best first episodes ever, although there is a drastic change in the pacing of the show immediately afterwards, as the whole show is actually a flashback building up to the events of the first episode.

A good choice to watch.

So I'm watching Darker than black and it's pretty good, but what the fuck is with those comic relief detectives, especially that pink haired bitch, I hope they die.

It would be cool if they did an OVA or miniseries that takes place during the war.

Ga-Rei: Zero was alright, that's about it.

I think both are decent, but nothing truly special. But for sure, Baccano! is better than Durarara. You could do much worse either way.

Started up Fairy Tail and I'm not sure if it'll be any good. But, then again, I didn't like One Piece too much at first, either. Then I watched more and it's one of my favorites. Just need to give it a benefit of a doubt, perhaps. Also watching City Hunter 2 and Lovely Complex. Good stuff, good times.

I've been meaning to check out Lupin III. So far i've watched a few eps of Nazo no Kanojo X and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia. The latter is about a guy who meets a female ghost who has lost her memory, and so doesn't know how or why she died and became a ghost, so the guy opts to help her find out. It's decent so far, pretty funny, nothing spectacular yet though.

The former i'm enjoying more, it's about a guy who tastes a new female transfer students' drool whilst she's asleep on her desk in class. He gets addicted to her saliva and she finds out, and they start going out. It is as crazy as it sounds. Really sweet art style too. Plus the main girl in it is hyper-waifu tier.

meanwhile i've also been watching The Big O and the occasional episode of Cardcaptor Sakura.

It's fun to watch when you're bored. It's very upbeat with a good OST too. It's worth a download, just don't expect a masterpiece storyline, it's episodic and mostly follows a formula. Give it a go if you want something cute and not intellectually challenging.

I've only seen bits of Bleach, and I didn't like what I saw. Death Note had an interesting concept, and was alright for a while, but went downhill after a while and never got better.

I am in the middle of InuYasha though

I despise Inuyasha.

Bleach is pretty good but not very original, and the filler is way too frequent. I really liked Death Note even at the end. I like to think of it as a Sherlock Holmes type of thing, if Sherlock went insane trying to become a god and Watson was the grim reaper (that's not even a spoiler, it happens in the first episode and according to the show within the first week of the events of the show).

btw how necessary is it to have seen anything previous to do with Lupin III before watching this new series? It looks interesting but i've not seen anything else to do with it.

not at all, but the second series (red jacket series) is the best, in my opinion. There's lots of awesome movies, too.

Absolutely zilch, but it wouldn't hurt to see a bit of something else just so you know the characters. I've only watched The Castle Of Caligostro, the ghibli lupin movie, before this

You should see some episodes of the first and second series, at least. Some of the other movies are really good, too. Secret of Mamo is one of the best.

Guise, I need halp.
I forget the name of this anime where the main characters are like a group and they have special abilities, and whenever they use their abilities they have to do something. One guy has to read a book, and another guy has to break one of his own fingers or something. Halp guise.

Darker Than Black is sick.

I watched the new Trigun movie recently. It's awesome, and the animation is much better than it is in the series.

Just finished Fafner.

It's an amazing show, and the Hiraiface isn't as distracting as it was in Gundam Seed. Great cast of characters, writing, etc, make it an engaging anime.

Definitely go watch it, bros.

Anyone here who likes a good comedy, particularly a Nichijou (every day life) anime, you guys have to watch Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou. I'm fucking tellin' you, this shit is fucking grand 10/10. I'd say it's probably the best comedy anime I've ever seen.

Also this Sora no Otoshimono shit is getting interesting lol

There were a few bits in that show where I just completely lost it. The bit where they're dubbing the middle school girls in particular

Gurren lagaan hands down. You can watch the entire series on YT. It's great because it's only 30 something episodes in length.

I just finished the first episode. I'll keep watching.

All I can say is I'm perplexed. I don't think I've seen a mech anime with this kind of set-up before; It's not like Gundam or Bubblegum Crisis where it either takes place in a futuristic city or they wear power suits.

I saw fan-service....we'll see how it goes.

Heart? Uhhhmmm.

Clannad, oodles of heart.
Usagi Drop, also oodles of heart.
Angel Beats! has heart, I guess.
Nichijou has heart, but absolutely no story.
Mayo Chikki! also has heart, and a pretty good story.
Eve no Jikan, it's a chibbi movie PUMPED with heart.
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai kinda has heart I guess.
Same with Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai.
Also, Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! is pretty heartwarming.

So, I finally finished watching Nichijou, and god damn, talk about utter lack of conclusion, even for anime.

And tell me guys, which of the following should I start watching first?
-Ano Natsu de Matteru
-Dog Days
-Higashi no Eden
-Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi
-Hotarubi no Mori e
-Hyakko
-Hotarubi no Mori e
-Natsume Yuujinchou
