I've been watching a lot of Ghibli, anyone have a personal favorite?

Mine is probably Nausicaa, so far.

Totoro is mine. Mostly because of nostalgia, but it's still an impressive film.

Princess Mononoke, I guess. The best three, I think, are Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa, and Spirited Away. They're all good, though. Also, Porco Rosso is underrated.

I missed an episode of Samurai 7 and im reminded as to why I HATE t.v. For fucks sake why is only on at 1:00 AM?

I have been able to see other episodes because CN west is 3 hours ahead. so it comes on at 9. I had to 'push it to the limit' (80s drums) but I couldnt stay up until 1. Its fuking impossible! I fell asleep during tenchi muyo >:(

Now im behind and theres no god damn way to catch up because toonami doesnt have reruns! >:(

FUCKING FUCK. And each episode is $1

So I was talking to one of my friends (who knows a lot about anime) and I asked for some recommendations. Aside from the obvious stuff (Cowboy Bebop, Perfect Blue, Akira,....), he also recommended two animes I have NEVER heard of: Seto no Hanayome and Sora no Otoshimono.
And just before I check them out, I'd like to ask this to anyone who have watched them: are they any good?

Seto no Hanayome is a fun show to watch, full of slapstick comedy and funny references.

So I've watched those two anime I mentioned about 2 days ago (Seto no Hanayome and Sora no Otoshimono) and I'd like to share my thoughts on them. If you do not care about that, then just ignore the rest of this post.

Seto no Hanayome: First off, it was a pain to find the episodes online, especially the first one. But after finding and watching them, I wish I didn't waste so much effort. It was, well, very weak. Or rather, it was overwhelmingly and relentlessly random to create comedy, never giving the viewer a change to breathe, let alone process just what the hell happened. Also, I dunno why, but there's something about the main character that just...makes me annoyed. It was tiresome to watch, unfunny and after the third episode I just couldn't go on.

Sora no Otoshimono: This one has quite a bit of flaws: rather immature, hit-or-miss humor, some parts were predictable and/or cliché (like Nymph's character development, Tsundere at it's core), some stuff was left unexplained (i.e. the choker bomb not going off) and there are a couple plotholes (nothing REALLY big, though). Plus, I hated Sohara and the fact that the main character gets very little development. He's also chibified for most of the anime, which got annoying.
But despite all that I thoroughly enjoyed this anime. When the humor hits, it hits well, and I found myself laughing sometimes. I don't laugh often, so that's something I guess. I also liked the rest of the characters (including Nymph. I have a bit of a soft spot for that kind of characters), with Sugata and Ikaros stealing the show. The story and setting were simple yet effective, even with the flaws I mentioned, and so interesting and (somehow) appealing to me that I got really into it. I was always looking forward to what was gonna happen next, and I couldn't stop watching it after episode 8. I was really enjoying every episode and, dammit, I just ignored the flaws, despite being well aware of them. And this has a second season, I hear. Gonna watch that now.
Rest assured, this is not the first time I've ignored an anime's flaws just because I thought everything else was damn good.

....Wow. That was one long review.

I find the manga is more enjoyable -> Sora no Otoshimono

Finally, I was wondering when {or if} Funimation was going to release the rest of the HU OVA. That's one less item off my Christmas list.

I got done with FLCL. It was random as hell, still liked it. Last episode, unlike the previous 5, actually made sense. Im surprised I cared about the characters as much as I did.

Finished Sakamichi No Apollon, really enojyed it. Although it did kinda reach a climax at ep 7 (school festival).

Still, the last jam in the final episode was great.

In short, if you don't actively despire jazz, watch. Great jazz, great romance, great art, great characters, etc.

Really stupid question but it's been bothering me for minutes now. What would happen to Nappa if he went Super Saiyan? I mean in regards to his appearance. We all know that in Dragonball Z, all Saiyans have the potential to super at certain levels of strength. The most striking changes are in the suddenly green eyes and blonde hair that comes up. I don't doubt anything about the eyes, but what about his hair? Or his tail for that matter?

Realistically speaking, I guess his eyes would turn green and his eyebrows would become golden. I've never thought about what would happen with the tail, though. Now that you mention it, I guess a super saiyan who still has his tail has never been depicted, has it? unless Brolly had a tail. I never saw those movies. I know they have the super saiyan oozaru in GT, but that's not exactly the same.

However, I like to think it would be more like this.

Guys, I'm watching an anime called Haibane Renmei right now. Its alright...But I haven't been able to get into an anime lately.
I've dropped quite a few. Do you guys have any Non-action recommendations for me? I dislike action.
Let me put it this way, What is your favorite Non-action anime of all time? Please don't recommend me Naruto, Bleach, or One Piece.

You should check out Naruto, Bleach or One Piece. All underrated psychological classics.

Azumanga Daioh, Spice & Wolf, Welcome to the NHK, The Girl who leapt through time, Boku no Pico and I guess Death Note. I'm a bit puzzled as to how you can be an anime fan and not enjoy action at all.

If you like DBZ, then you'll probably like Yu Yu Hakusho. It's like DBZ, but better.

Eh, other than what Jackho said, Genshiken, Master Keaton, Cromartie High School, and maybe Gankutsuou are good picks. A few have some action, but that's not the main focus.

And don't watch Boku no Pico, just watch the review (still a tad NSFW).

I second Yu yu hakusho, its from the same person who made hunter x hunter.
One Piece if you haven't seen it yet.
Fairy tail
Hokuto no ken
SAkigake!! Otokojuku
Ginga Nagareboshi gin - this is pretty unknown outside of Japan in general but it's very popular here in the nordic countries, also one of my favorites. It's about a pack of wild dogs who set out to kill a giant bear. Also its sequel, Ginga densetsu weed.

So, I watched Bleach for the first time today. Might as well have drank a whole container of the real stuff, it'd have the same effects on my brain but would be over way more quickly.
Seriously, what the fuck? I heard it was bad but never did I expect magical hairclip fairies from a show about DEATH GODS KILLING EACH OTHER. And BOY did this show feel like it jumped the shark on the very first episode. Didn't think that was possible.

UGH.

I also decided to rewatch Seto no Hanayome, give it a second chance. Turns out I watched the OVA the first time around, which explains why it seemed so damn random. I basically skipped 26 episodes, DERP.
I'm quite liking it now though. The comedic timing is excellent.

I downloaded the first few episodes earlier, but don't have the time to watch them.

Are You Alice is a nice, original twist on Carroll's original story and definitely worth reading. Great art and dialogue make it an engaging story albeit somewhat befuddled. 89th Alice is a hot trap and I love how the Mad Hatter is characterized in it.

You will die in the Caucus race.
