No one's mentioned Nichijou? For shame. Barbarians. XD

Although in all fairness Nichijou is really, really Japanese. So for every joke you do get there will be 2 or 3 that completely go under the radar by a long shot.

That's because I already listed it under shows I very much do not like, and for the reasons you mentioned, btw. =P

Oh, and I started SKET Dance already. Liking it a lot, so thanks Kevadu. Now I just gotta figure out another show to go with it (I like watching lighter shows in pairs). I already had to set Slayers aside while I wait for the box set I ordered to arrive, and I gave up watching it on Hulu (I really do hate that site now. Last time I was there I had to sit through 3+ minute commercial breaks. May as well have watched on TV).

I remembered that there is a "Kakashi Gaiden story" in the manga. That was really good.

An entire story focused on Kakashi? That I gotta see!

The World Only God Knows. 

Both seasons are on Crunchyroll.  Good show.

I've heard good things about this one, and seen some fun clips. I'll be sure give it a look.

As for Fumoffu, we'll see. My friends made that show seem really stupid to me, and I was never a big fan of Full Metal Panic. But this wouldn't be the first time I've been misled about a show, nor would it be the first time I enjoyed a spin-off of something I didn't originally like, assuming that's what happens. I'll give it a try at least.

I second the recommendations of School Rumble and Azumanga Daioh.  Especially School Rumble, honestly.  That's actually one of my favorite shows and I feel it's pretty underrated.  (And it's not a romantic comedy.  Romance is more like a subject matter or setting, it's not a show that takes relationships seriously.)

If you can actually find it, Here is Greenwood is an oldie but goodie.  It's just a 6 episode OVA but it's hilarious.

Edit: Also, check out Sket Dance.  It's a currently airing show but Crunchyroll has it.

Thank you, Kevadu. I'll be sure to check those out. I was actually looking at SKET Dance the other day, wondering if I should try it out. Here is Greenwood was also recommended by a friend of mine, I just never got around to it. It sounds like something I'd enjoy. School Rumble...my gut's telling me I'd like it, but now I'm not so sure. And I may take Dice's advice and stick with the manga of Azumanga Daioh (assuming I ever get the urge to read manga again).

B Gata H Kei
Especially if you like School Rumble, since they have similar brands of humor

"Plot Summary: Yamada is a high school student, and a virgin, who aspires to have 100 casual sex partners. Despite this, she soon finds herself targeting and pursuing only one boy."

I rather watch Excel Saga.

I actually did check out B Gata a few months back, and I have to agree, I'd rather watch Excel Saga. While I find its existance hilarious, the actual comedy in the show was...just not funny to me. I dunno how else to describe it. I certainly hope School Rumble doesn't end up like that.

For complete nonsense, go with Excel Saga, Kujibiki Unbalance or Puni Puni Poemi.

Just so we're clear, I'm specifically asking people don't recommend shows like these.
1131  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Anime Comedies? on: May 03, 2012, 10:56:20 PM
So I finally started watching The Slayers and I realized I've been sorely lacking in the comedy department, especially with anime. So I may as well ask here if anyone knows of any good comedy anime that aren't Romantic Comedies like Ah My Goddess (Which I like, but don't really want right now), or Super-Ultra-Weird comedies like Bobobo, Cromartie High School, and certain parts of Nichijou and Excel Saga (which I definitely do not like).

What shows I do like are:

Sgt. Frog
Idol Project
Tenchi Muyo
The Slayers
Irresponsible Captain Taylor

Just a quick update: GaoGaiGar Final has been great outside of the pacing. I really feel like they wanted this to be another full season or whatever, but instead made it an 8 episode OVA.

Naruto is good until volume 5 in manga and everything after that is honestly a waste of time. The series could have been better though, it had potential.

Yeah, it sure did. :( I remember the reason I always hated it was because it turned into basically a DBZ clone when it could've been so much more from the way it started. :sigh: oh well, at least One Piece hasn't fallen apart yet.
1133  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: May 03, 2012, 02:41:50 PM
I don't know if Soul Eater's still kicking around but if it is then that seemed entertaining enough.

Also, lol at people finally getting wise to Bleach's shenanigans of constantly reiterating the Soul Society arc and being batshit with its powerlevels in a less tolerable than DBZ/GT way.

Yeah, I was gonna mention it, but it wasn't high on the charts I found. Still, I really liked the show (never got around to reading the Manga), so I'd still recommend it, even if its not doing so hot right now.
1134  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: May 02, 2012, 10:04:29 PM
Don't follow animu or manga news closely, but I'd like to know if there's is any new shonen series that has become the big thing lately? Just curious.

Not that I know of, but of course, I don't follow shonen very closely. I do know that One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach had been dominating the charts for the longest time until recently, when Bleach got knocked down a couple of pegs and is now confirmed to be Ending soon. I thought Fairy Tail was primed to take its spot on the charts, but I'm not sure if it did, or if some show I don't know about did.

EDIT: Oh boy, apparently Blue Excorcist took Bleach's spot on the charts way back in November. I remember one of my friends going on about that, and I finally gave it a watch - it was nothing special. I really wasn't surprised to see it only lasted 25 episodes.

Then there's Fairy Tail and some show about a cook.

I ended up finishing GaoGaiGar and Gaiking first, which I'll give my thoughts on when I'm not so freakin' sick. Now I'm slowly going through GaoGaiGar Final, and I might start Slayers soon thanks to everyone's recommendations.

How is Cowboy Bebop not in anyone's top 10? It's pretty much the pinnacle of the medium.

I can't speak for everyone, but I know for me, there's no giant robots and no one screaming out their attacks, so it's automatically disqualified from my top 10. :P

It's amazing how each forum has certain members that remind you of the same kind of person on another forum. 

I find it even worse when they remind me of people I know. I swear I know 3 people like Agent D.

I just want to point out that the appropriate way to collect blueberries is by raking them, not picking them. Thank you.

My Uncle has a blueberry farm. I coulda sworn they just picked them, though. I should ask him the next time I see him.

I dont think thats conclusive

You're right, leave it to Neogaf's titling to fool me. Heck, I've been looking for an hour now, and the press release they're talking about doesn't even seem to exist...

It appears this game is coming to the west. The amount of jokes that could be made about the game made its existance worth it, but I'm disappointed it's actually coming out here, since now I'll probably buy it.
