i'm going to assume that most of the folks here know of that site. and no thanks, i'd rather watch anime for free than pay for it.

Fooly Cooly has a nice message in it's 6 episode of a series. I found the message to say "It's okay to take your time to grow up, and keep things at your pace".

I really don't see any of that when I watch FLCL, instead I saw 6 episodes of random crap that goes nowhere. The message that people claim about this show comes off as shallow {if there was any to be found}, and there is no point behind it. IMO, this is a show that is popular for all of the wrong reasons.

Overall the anime is very symbolic and watching the show one or two times did no justice. More of everything you go rewatch it, you find out a little bit more here and there.

I've made the mistake of watching this show twice, and I felt like I got dumber both times in the end. As I said before, this show is popular for the wrong reasons, and to deduce any type of serious philosophy or symbolism from FLCL is laughable. Instead, do yourself a favor Wonko, and watch the Ghost in the Shell series, in where the philosophy in the show is actually meaningful, and the message in itself is deep and somewhat relatable.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Mendou has talked to me in the past about getting involved with the community of MyAnimeList and I've thought about it. Thought about dipping my toes into BakaBTs community but I've been glancing and some members are a bit over bearing like a good lot of the members of this club were in their youth.

I've dabbled in animebyt.es' community but I find that most anime fans just seem to be a bit too full-on for me. I've never really bought into all the doujinshi, all the figurines, all the waifus and all the kawaii~~ desu stuff, I just watch the anime and leave it at that. Plus there's a lot of stuff that typical anime communities often discuss that i just haven't watched (eg: clannad). Currently trying out reddit/trueanime, which despite its pretentious name is a reasonable bunch of guys, if small and slow.

Actually got back into anime for the most part thanks to Hajime no Ippo. I watched both series, the OVA, and the movie.

Hey, are the 2nd series, ova movie etc as good as the first? I've only seen the orig 70ish eps but loved what I saw.

Lastly, I've finally caught up with the airing ep of space bros, which means I've got some time to start something else. Think I'm gonna watch some of that jazz anime with the bebop director from last winter. I watched the first couple of eps way back but then stopped watching anime for a few months and since have forgotten about it.

I'm not the one who made the post about FLCL. I didn't like it either. I haven't watched the Ghost in the Shell series, but I have watched the movies.

I'm only in it for the anime/manga as well, but strangely enough, I still haven't tired of /a/ and 4chan in general despite them doing that shit all the time. I swear I'll be on that site until it's dead or I'm dead, hopefully the former.

I guess another reason why I can stomach /a/ is because it's fast-paced discussion rather than being slow as fuck. I'm pretty patient though.

I used to hang around on /a/ quite a bit, but now that I don't really follow the airing anime any more I don't see much point. Most of the interesting discussion seemed to be centered around those threads. I mean lets take a look at the front page atm:

mirai nikki / waifu
mormons (wat) / waifu
kinda cool evangelion interactive thread run by OP, but still just trying to chat up asuka so / waifu
some anime from 90s i haven't heard of / watched (slayers next?)
manga dump
fave mecha discussion
idolmaster thread
evangelion 3.0 discussion
Shinsekai yori (From the new world)
paella magi madoka
some discussion about copyright and intellectual property after someone tried to kickstart some strike witches fan stuff.
mirai nikki
bleach
sound thread
K

okay so out of these the copyright discussion was cool, the anime i didnt know discussion looked aight, but the real problem is i don't have a waifu, i don't have an opinion over the best homura moment in puella maho magi madoka, i dont watch mirai nikki or bleach or k or shinsekai yori or the previous evangelions.

more importantly my 4chanx script or whatever has broken and doesn't expand images inline any more or embed youtube and the "what replies to this" bits aren't working quite right and aaaaaaagh

Yeah I know what you mean. Only a fourth of the threads actually interest me, but after five years of browsing the damn website, I can't stop lurking/posting on it.

I'm glad moot added the all of the features to the site itself because I lost the extension the last time I reset my laptop. Shows that he still cares for 4chan.

I've never looked at /r/trueanime, but my god is /r/anime awful.

Wonko, Stand Alone Complex is fantastic.

I used to be a database mod for MAL, but that was revoked after I became inactive.

And I agree. not much variety here anymore.

Hey again, guys.
Listen, I haven't really been watching to much animu lately, and I haven't exactly been the most contributive to the group, but uh...
Would anyone be kind enough to list me off some animu that recently finished airing? I wanna hit up AB and download some new series, but I just have no idea what to choose from.
Thanks.

This is my anime list

I've always liked anime, sailor moon and pokemon were of course my first animes.
The Inuyasha came on the air and I became addicted.
I like the genres: horror, romance, slice of life, drama, and psychological.
I absolutely am bored with action.

I am, thanks to netflix, I watched both Clannad and Clannad after story(which made my eays dry out from all the crying)...and I saw Shuffle!, Chobits, and Demon King Daemo(or something like that). I thought they had Honey and Clover on netflix..but I guess they got rid of it. Now I am forced to watch it using a slow anime website..

i'm the same way honestly. i know a few people who are close friends that have figurines and the like or are really into the Moe~ stuff but that just doesn't suit me. sure, i love Rozen Maiden, Potemayo and other animes like that but i don't have the feelings to buy the figures or whatever. i have some gundam figures and DBZ but that goes with saying what i really first saw anime wise. now that i'm older, the girly animes and buying the figures seems silly. not going to judge or i try not to but it's jsut not for me. i've heard of clannad and it just throws up red flags everywhere for me. just like K-on and Lucky Star. just... No. No.

Actually got back into anime for the most part thanks to Hajime no Ippo. I watched both series, the OVA, and the movie.
Hey, are the 2nd series, ova movie etc as good as the first? I've only seen the orig 70ish eps but loved what I saw.

the second series 'New Challenger' is really good. it's a continuation of the original series but takes place after the movie and OVA. i'd say it's at least worth a try if you enjoyed the first tv series since New Challenger is only 26 episodes. there were talks of something after it but that was in 2009.

but yeah, give it a shot. you can find the first few episodes on youtube. it's actually what made me give the entire Ippo line a shot and man, one of my new favorites in the past 8 years.

fuck yea, definitely one of my top 3 favourite anime of all time, along with K-On! and Darker than Black.

Also, made a new MAL. My Animu HDD crashed, so I can only watch what I've downloaded recently, until I buy a new HDD to back it up. So I'm currently watching Toradora! and Kore wa Zombie Desu ka. They're both... Decent, I guess. Downloaded Yosuga no Sora and Binbougami ga!... To be completely honest, they both look like shit. I can't bring myself to find ANY anime I haven't seen before that isn't shit, so I'm probably gonna re-watch something I haven't seen in a while.

Since everyone else seems to be posting their's, here's my anime/manga list. Feel free to hate.

I've noticed MAL has started relisting more shows with their romanized japanese titles, as if any one is actually going to recognize them. Wish they'd stop doing that shit.

because you're basing it on it's name, just like XIII. if you drop the prize title name then the movie and the game are decent, even good or better.

If you mean Spirits Within, maybe it's just that I seen it at a young age but I've always sort of liked it. You can't hate it for being different in a series as inconsistent as Final Fantasy.
