If you enjoyed DN, I'd recommend Code Geass, since it has somewhat the same feel to it.
Hellsing: Ultimate, if you want to see something bloody and awesome.

I'd definitely second Hellsing: Ultimate... even if it was never finished. Code Geass on the other hand... I swear, I'm like the only person that doesn't like it... I watched 1 episode then dropped it.

Angel Beats!
Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Steins;Gate

Those would definitely be my very top rec's as far as action/adventure goes.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Whatever you do. DO NOT watch the Evangelion movies before the actual anime

duh, obviously.
It's actually confusing as hell, you have to watch the entire series, EXCLUDING the last TWO episodes. It's mandatory that you watch End of Evangelion before the end of the series. Then watch Evangelion 1, and 2.
STILL WAITING ON THE NEW EVANGELION, KNAWMEEN?

no you gotta watch eps 25 and 26 first, so that you can decide that you fucking hate evangelion the miserable piece of shit show that it is, and then you can watch EoE so your brain can explode in a slightly better way

it just keeps tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down

So I finished Clannad and it's After Story. Oh god I cried like a bitch, but it was GOOOOOOD.
I've also started watching Fairy Tail. I usually hate shonen action anime like this (Naruto and Bleach are God Tier on my shit list), but this one's actually pretty fun, and it ACTUALLY cuts the bullshit and doesn't drag on for 15 episodes to end a fight. Awesome music as well.
I'm only at episode 20 though, so it'll probably degrade into horribleness after ~50 episodes like most others in this genre. I have some hope though.

Actually it gets a lot better as it goes on. When I first started watching it it just felt like a mediocre Naruto/One Piece wanna-be, but it kept improving on every arc and it's one of my favorite shows now. And yes the soundtrack is great, folk metal is the perfect music style to accompany magic battles. The same composer also made the soundtrack for Naruto which I also listen to on a regular basis.

It is finished. The last episode, 10, was released in December of last year.

To hell with this bullshit, watching 25 + 26 after EoE changes nothing and if anything only cheapens the impact of EoE. Just watch everything in release order, Death & Rebirth is optional.

Isn't Death just the whole series all over again?

I didn't know that they went up to that number. I hope they release the rest of it subbed and dubbed soon. I know there is a box set of 5, 6, and 7, which I intend to get at some point.

It's just a summary of the first 24 episodes occasionally from different perspectives, that's why it's optional. Absolutely god tier soundtrack though (video contains EoE spoilers).

I figured you did. If you're feeling up for some 'law breaking' you could always acquire the rest of the OVAs and watch them before FUNi releases them all.(probably be Q4 of this year or Q1 of next year)

I could list ten reasons why my dick is rock hard right now. I figured it was only time before they did a prequel to SAC and the original two movies. Man, how I love me some GitS.

So uuuuh. Samurai 7 ended. Twas cool, I liked it.
Its a good length, 27 episodes. All of them packed with a decent amount of content that felt necessary, unlike I dunno, Bleach, Dragon ball Z, you know. That.
Wonder what I should watch next....

More GITS? Awesome, I gotta prepare myself for that because it's been years sine I last read/watched it. I loved Yoko Kanno's compositions on SAC so hopefully she's on board for these OVAs.

They should do an anime of that instead. It would be an instant AOTY.

Nope. Perhaps we can marathon the same show at once and discuss it (streaming?).

Still on a little 'anime hiatus' so I haven't watched a full series in a while. I've been reading Neil Gaiman's Sandman comic, though, which is amazing and y'all should read it.

A thought came across to me earlier while reading it, though, about manga publication. I'm familar with Western publication ofc, but I'm ignorant as fuck when it comes to Japan. Is each chapter serialized in a magasine or as an individual issue? Obviously, tankobon are the tpbs/collections so they come after a set of chapters is made.
