I've finished Dragonball, DBZ, Cowboy Bebop, and most of Yu Yu Hakusho

I'm currently watching Gurren Lagann and DuRaRaRa! My friend also just showed me an episode of Black Lagoon so I'm going to start that asap.

My top two recommendations would probably be Death Note and Deadman Wonderland. I just recently watched Kuroshitsuji, which was pretty good, but I didn't enjoy it quite as much as Death Note or Deadman Wonderland. Still worth a watch, though.

I honestly have no idea what brought you to mention Black Butler with the likes of Death Note and Deadman Wonderland, but okay. :lol:

Deadman Wonderland reminded me of Ergo Proxy, for some reason.

It was just something I watched recently, and was pretty decent, so I figured I'd give it a mention. It's certainly not in the same league as Death Note or Deadman Wonderland, but if you're an anime fan looking to kill some time, it's worth a watch.

I'm not simplifying it, it was kinda like that at the end.

You don't consider describing the ending as "I see what you did th- ...oops, you got me." simplifying it? Really? That's exactly what it means to simplify something; to make less complex or complicated.

I've found it to be another one of those anime more suited for girls to enjoy, and trust me, I know quite a few who obsess over it being teh bestest ever and all that weird shit with Sebastian.

Dragon Ball Z is the only anime I've watched from start to finish.
I got bored of Yu-Gi-Oh after the Marik series.
My interest in Digimon stopped when when they reached the Digimon Tamers series.

BTW if you're a fan of DBZ, then check out TeamFourStar's DBZ Abridged on Youtube. I swear to God that's some of the funniest stuff I've seen.

Spoiler




Anyone read Beelzebub? *censored*ing hilarious. xD Feels like a good spoof of action manga like DBZ and YYH, definitely worth a read.

What are you trying to say? >___________________>

But yeah, I definitely get where you're coming from, though. Sebastian is a fangirl's wet dream.

All this talk about Death Note has made me want to rewatch it again. Having just finished the first episode, I can honestly say I'm hooked yet again. >_>

Oh, and if you haven't read Kimi ni Todoke, IMO you should definitely do so. A cute romance.

I would'nt even dream of typing up my collection, It's just too vast.
Hell even if i was to just type the series' alone i would'nt risk the typers elbow :lol:
I have several boxsets that i have bought but not even started to watch yet, Nothing from the last 2 years though, I sort of lost interest/stopped buying it because of the sheer amount of unwatched DVDs i have.

Series Recommendations:
Outlaw Star ♥
Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex (Both)♥
Cowboy BeBop
Samurai Champloo
Ninja Scroll
Thundercats
♥ (Classic)
Dragonball Z ♥ (Classic)

I also like fightingn animes like Street Fighter Tekken, Fighting Beauty Woolong and Baki The Grappler

As for movies - I'll watch anything set in fuedal Japan, I love that era.

Movies... The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya was amazing. Coming from someone who watches the anime first and reads the manga later, the second season sounds like it's going to be amazing.

Also, My Neighbor Totoro FTW! I still laugh at the South Park episodes with Cthulu and Cartmen referencing it. :lol:

^The only time I read manga is when the anime isn't caught up and I have no other choice (like Naruto: Shippuden, for example). I'm not big on manga, so I try to stick to anime as much as possible.

^I just don't get quite as into it compared to anime. I just enjoy the animation more, is all. It leaves less to the imagination, perhaps, but sometimes I prefer it that way.

Also, my sister and I often watch anime together. It's just sort of something we've always done together, since we were kids. A bonding thing, if you will. And as you can probably imagine, watching anime together is a bit more exciting than reading manga together. =P

Ah, I see. Thanks for the explanation. :3 My main issue with anime is that it tends to be filler and sometimes not exactly straight to the point. Take Naruto for example, it tends to have characters going all "err, umm, hmm, durrr" and so many fillers like Naruto getting lost on his way to the chuunin exams. Apart from that, and the time, I can easily get into anime.

My Anime List: where you guys can list all the manga and anime you've read.

Here's my list of what I'm reading, what I've read, what I hve yet to read, and what I've dropped. ;)

DBZ Abridged Is Great.
