Current anime of the moment?

Postby ess_jay_arr » Thu 02.22.2007 1:27 am

A few years ago when I was heavily into downloading anime, there always seemed to be one that was really popular, that everyone was watching. I first noticed it when everyone seemed to be downloading Fullmetal Alchemist. Naruto was a hot topic until they started doing the filler episodes. And I think Bleach came into popularity about the same time Naruto went downhill.

Anyway, somehow this kind of news has stopped finding its way to me, so I'm asking here, what's a popular anime at the moment? I think I heard something about one called Death Note... anyone know if that's any good? Any other suggestions? I'm pretty open as to what kind of anime it is, I mostly use them for listening practice these days anyway.

Oh I know one, its called A cyanide pill. You put it in your mouth and then one otaku magicaly leaves this world.

but i love all anime....

[spoiler]I hate all anime[/spoiler]

Hey maybe you should try that cyanide pill.

This is just an explanation for those anime freaks who were to busy daydreaming about cartoon charecters to pay attention in class.
Please note I do not endorse the injestion of cyanide pills or any other form of cyanide, you should never put cyanide on or in your body as when it comes into contact with water (so basically humans well long story short you die.

good anime has been sorta lacking the past few months.... maybe it's in-between seasons in Japan or something. six months ago i was following half a dozen really interesting anime series, but i haven't seen anything worth watching in the past few months show up on the torrent sites. i can only assume that either it's mid-season for new anime, or this season is crap.

i'm waiting patiently for the next new *good* anime to come out... something like Ouran Host Club or Mushishi or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya or Black Lagoon or Ergo Proxy or Muteki Kanban Musume or anything worth watching... but the past few months have been totally lacking in decent anime.

but i just barely enjoyed Eureka Seven at the 52 episode mark, and prefer 26 or 13 episode anime that has a story and an ending. i pretty much can't stand the 'goes on for ever and ever' filler fodder type anime... so YMMV.

That's funny. When you first joined this site, all your posts were about how Mononoke-Hime was the best thing since sliced cheese. ;)

The times.. they are a changing. ;)

What're the names of those half dozen then? :) I'm just looking for something to watch, I don't mind if it's six months old. In fact, that's even better if I don't have to wait for a new release every week.

@ Harisenbon: SShhhh don't say that outloud, nice memory.
best thing since sliced cheese
did i say sliced cheese? because nothing is as good as sliced cheese, well maybe bree on a water cracker.
And I only said it was my favorite anime, its the only one I can stand.... just saw it for the fourth time (thats what i get for letting students pick a movie to watch).

Oh and good memory, that was like two years ago.

Grow up.

you too.

see the second paragraph of my post.... those are some of the better things that i watched and i'm waiting for something as good as them to turn up on the torrent sites..

but i would add Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's and Noein and Solty Rei and Honey & Clover and Aria and a few more.... as decently watchable 13 or 26 episode stories that are all over and done, you can download the entire series or for some, buy the DVD's. they all have decent stories, and no room for endless filler episodes. (or maybe one recap/filler episode for the longer series). but you for sure won't be watching a dozen episodes waiting for something to happen.
