I watched five episodes of Eden of the East back to back, after hearing about it in this thread. One of the most enjoyable animes I've seen in a while. I love all the film references that Takizawa makes!

Almost done with Noir.

Anyone watching any anime from the spring season? It seems like Eden of the East is the only one worth watching.

Hello everyone, I'm new to the site but couldn't pass up this opportunity to recommend Basquash! It is the most fun of any series that I can remember watching in recent memory.  The characters are a lot fun and the show has a great line between taking itself seriously and poking fun at the genre (shounen sports shows).  It also does really good in not trapping itself into a specific role and has a tremendous amount of room for growth.

I should probably check out Eden of the East, it seems to be getting a pretty good response.

I'm currently watching Gundam Seed and Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040, only a few episodes in on each.

 How's Gundam so far? My cousin's obsessed, but it doesn't look all that interesting to me.
 
 I've been re-watching Cowboy Bebop lately. I forgot how much I love this show. Also, seeing this uncut for the first time makes it even better.

It really depends on which Gundam you're talking about.

All I've seen was the first season of Gundum 00 and it was fairly awesome.

I still need to sit down and watch the second season.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Yes, Yes, Yes.

That and K-ON! are the greatest things this season.

Gotta watch Cowboy Bebop sometime....

Finished Noir recently. The second half made up for it's first half. I still prefer Madlax to Noir because of the stiff cast in Noir.

Finally started Gundam 00 S2 again. I was watching it as it came out, but I hate waiting a week to watch an episode. I'm glad this series starts off fast compared to season one.

Started Shikabana Hime via ANN TV. First episode had a lot of style, and I'm not expecting much substance. As long as it stays entertaining, I'll keep watching.

I'll also be starting FMA today, as I never really gave that show a chance.

Yeah, Gundam 00 is what I meant, sorry. I'll hafta check that out.
 
 The only other Gundam series I've seen is Gundam Wing, when it played on Cartoon Network's Toonami. I liked it as a kid, I dunno if it holds up.

It's been pretty good so far, holding my interest fairly well, hopefully that will continue since I'm only about 8 eps in and it's 50ish total I think.

I should watch season two but I can wait for the dub for that (especially with my current lack of time).

Unfortunately SH wont remain entertaining for long.
Code: [Select]
The otaku monk dies halfway through and with him anything redeemable about the cast/show. Also don't expect to see anything ever in that show. You're not. Its black on black coated in black about 90% of the time with the remaining 10% entirely spent looking at talking heads.

FMA rocks! That is all. (Btw which FMA are you referring to?)

First FMA. Only thing I liked when I saw it on [as] was the music. Ed and Al are still annoying to me, but I don't have much anime to watch these days.

I've been on a Mecha binge lately, all I watch is new Super Robot shows that play out like stuff from the 70's. My latest exploit has been into the world of awesomeness that is Godannar. Man I love this show, characters are overdramatic and hilarious and the mech's are so generic that they're charming. Great fun.

Wolf's Rain...sucks. I have no idea how I made it through 27 episodes, but I couldn't watch the last 2.5 episodes. I got tired of watching these fuckers walk around for 22 minutes.

Recently started rewatching Azumanga Daioh subbed. Shit is still funny though I only finished this a year ago (I rarely rewatch anime unless I haven't seen it for two years, but there are exceptions.)

Still chugging through Gundam 00 S2. I want to marathon it, but I still need to download the last six episodes.

Started Ai Yori Aoshi through Netflix. It's what I needed after watching something shitty like Wolf's Rain.

I've been watching Aeon Flux and The Maxx.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.
