Besides that, my post on KoTS, as suggested by popey.

Nice intro, yet like every other anime I've watched when subbed has bizarre lyrics. I'm not sure if it's a cultural thing or just bad translations.

Mukae looks transgendered. now that I see more than just her face it's not that bad. maybe it's just that all the guys have feminine features too.

main character is a pansy.

mukae gives main character (whose name I do not remember well) a compliment of "you have a pretty face." For some reason this just (to me) highlights the femininity of the main character more.

hmmm. I feel like the first episode is a bit early to be pushing a love triangle, but okay, I guess I can get behind this.

post will but updated as I watch. I tend to pause videos regularly, so this may be longer than normal for a single episode.

I know why popey likes KoTS, there's chunks about faith in it!

I'm only kinda kidding.

DAWWWWWW, sentaro found his girl! I've decided to make sentaro the main character in my head, cause I don't like the other guy.

THIS SHOW SOLD ME ON THE JAZZ AND NOW IT'S A LOVE RECTANGLE. THANKS. I like this stuff too, but... when it gets cringe worthy I have to pause for a few minutes. I don't do awkward

so, koaru is getting better.

is shitty communication a cultural thing over there?

I find it hard to tell the difference between an internal dialogue, a soliloquy, and something said aloud.

good, the love pentagon has succumbed to entropy and is breaking up into a couple and a love triangle of a lower power of order.

This is why I prefer GuP. The only love polygon is Yukari being torn between Miho, the Panzer 38, and the Panzer IV. So... that's a love pyramid.

is all of popey's anime like this?

at least there aren't filler episodes. those are difficult in something like dragonballz, let alone in a drama like this where you can't just skip shit.

I notice that sometimes these shows are prone to being unclear on how the characters are expressing themselves, you should get accustomed to it. As a rule of thumb, if no one answers back, the character is talking to him/her/itself.

Also, a pentagon? Heh, at least it's not a dodecahedron. You'd be amazed at the size of the Anime & Manga example folder's size.

EDIT: From the ones I know, Akira and Ghost in the Shell are action-oriented, but are movies not series. My Little Monster is a drama from what I've gather, and I don't know much of the rest.

I know that I'm not too well known in the Age of Kings Heaven forums, and honestly I've never posted here before, but I found out about this thread and wanted to say I love this. I recently have had a newfound love for Black Lagoon as well. Also, I have watched tons and TONS of anime in my past.

By the way, has anyone seen Type-Moon's Canaan the anime? It's not half bad.
Have you guys also seen The Big O? Trigun?

I recently watched Log Horizon and really enjoyed it. I'd say it's a more mature version of Sword Art Online.

I liked Trigun. It was a mixture of the wild west and Sci-fi genre and The Big O was something I was exposed to when I was younger (like when I was a kid) and I liked it.

No, I started you off with something slow
Ck, I like that anime because it has great pacing, likeableish characters, excellent setting, and the line "I can't stand that coon-music Jazz!".

I don't see how you can take the OP seriously when there's a video of anime gangsta rap in it.

People love to hate SAO but I actually like it. The 14-episode format was an ambitious one but given the premise I think it really worked. And that ending was really powerful, with Kirito crawling down the hospital corridor, a shadow of his virtual self.

Yay, anime is conquering this forum like a wildfire!

I'm watching Ghost in the Shell. It's a great setting and the plots are interesting too. Character development seemed weak to me at first but its just subtle. I also watched a few episodes of Black Lagoon, but it's not my cup of tea.

I may not be as prolific a watcher of anime as Popeychops, but allow me to make a recommendation: Mushishi.

No I actually really enjoyed SAO too, the story was entertaining and it made me legitimately care about a lot of the characters. It definitely has its issues (the Kirito harem being one of the worst) but I still consider it a good anime. Have you seen both seasons or just the first?

Having said that, Log Horizon appealed to me on more of an intellectual level than an emotional one, and I feel that its writing was generally more consistent than SAO.
