Title: Whats your favorite anime/manga
Post by: Sena on March 09, 2017, 06:20:28 pm
I was wondering what the favorite anime/manga series of people are.
I have a lot of anime/manga that i love so its a bit hard for me to choose a few but these are about the top 5.
Anime
1. Death Note
Especially the first part was amazing i really enjoyed watching it.
2. code geass
I think both seasons are amazing and am really looking forward to season 3.
3. one punch man
4. Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
5. Steins;Gate

havent read as much manga as much as i have seen anime so this is a bit easyer for me.
Manga
1. Shingeki no Kyojin
2. One Piece
3. Death Note
4. Ansatsu Kyoushitsu
5. Boku no Hero Academia

I would also like to hear what people think of the anime Hourou Musuko (wandering son) its the only series i know of that is about a trans persone.

Hmm, that's a pretty difficult question but I'll try to answer!

Anime (in no particular order):
-Another
-Clannad: After Story
-Little Busters!/Little Busters!: Refrain
-Mirai Nikki
-Neon Genesis Evangelion
-No.6
-Zankyou no Terror
-Little Witch Academia
-Cardcaptor Sakura

Manga:
-No.6
-Ore Monogatari!!
-Another

I'm more into VOCALOID than anime and manga, but it's still good. :)

Recently reread TRIGUN/TRIGUN MAXIMUM cover to cover, now to rewatch the anime and the movie, Badlands Rumble. (Vash and Meryl are so cute <3)

Cowboy Beebop.

REALLY loved 'Vision of Escaflowne' (movie and tv show) way back, even if the ending is a HUGE let down in both..

Currently *hooked* on Attack on Titan. Manga's gotten INSANE, and eagerly awaiting season 2 of the anime.
(anybody get my pun? lol)

Ghost in the Shell (all movies/series) need a proper shout out, so does Battle Angel.

Umm, that's a real hard one, espacially if you've seen a lot of different anime, so i'll start with the manga as there are only a few i've read. I'll just consider those i bought, so this is a short list:

1. Shingeki no Kyojin (Aka. Attack on Titan)
2. Gokukoku no Brynhildr (Aka. Brynhildr in the Darkness)
3. Accel World
4. Ousama Game
5. Death Note Stopped after buying the seventh chapter though, because i did not like how the story developed after one certain point. (Trying not to spoil here >.>)


Now about Anime. Anime is a lot harder, but i'll try my best. These will only be in somewhat of a specific Order as i can't really say which one is "higher up"
1. Mirai Nikki - It's a great Anime even though the protargonist can get really annoying throughout the Anime, but Yuno definitely compensates for that!
2. Another - Even though it's a more bloody Anime, it definitely has one of the best Stories and Charakters i've seen in a long time.
3. Angel Beats - I don't really know what to say about Angel Beats, besides that it left me crying for several hours after it ended >.>
4. Parasyte - This Anime. It's just.. so good. And the message.. WOW. The Soundtrack as well! Still listening to it c:
5. Zankyou no Terror - This is another one of those Anime which i could watch over and over again and still be amazed by the Story, the Charakter development and everything. This one is beautiful.

Honorable Mention: Digimon (Entire Series) -  How could i make a favorite Anime list without mentioning Digimon? Digimon was just one of these Series which just made my childhood my childhood. I used to rewatch entire Seasons (except the fourth one. Fourth one was meh), even as i got older. Just last year i watched the entire third season in one go, just because i freakin love Digimon :P

Hope noone minds me posting in this kinda dead Topic ^^ But i really did not want to open a new one if one already exists c:

I love anime, but I'm not sure I can rate my favorites. :')

here's some I like though;
Fullmetal Alchemist-best fantasy.
Log Horizon-what if sao was made by someone who really loved mmos, and knows about how societies work.
Spice and Wolf-Cute characters, plus sneaks in knowledge! yes please B)
When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace(dang light novel titles :D)-slice of life with superpowers.
Konosuba-the first season is side slayingly funny if you're into the humor
Oran highschool host club-can't go wrong with a classic.
My Hero Academia is really cool so far.
 


also others :)

Post by: Roll on September 16, 2017, 09:34:05 pm

One Piece. All One Piece, all the time.

... Well, here are some honorable mentions I guess: Fairy Tail, Hunter x Hunter, Ouran High School Host Club, Ranma 1/2, Seven Deadly Sins (one of the few recent series I've been able to get in to), FMA, Utena(even if it is repetitive and the movie is weird, still brilliant).

I feel like my list is deceptively heavy on the shounen series, but that is mostly because I like to get invested in long series I can watch over over time. 12-26 episodes is just never enough. Ie: I loved Honey and Clover, Chobits (really anything by Clamp), Midori no Hibi (never understood why it wasn't more popular), and a ton of eclectic stuff, it is just all so fleeting it falls to the wayside long term unfortunately.

Old thread, but:

In no particular order, my top 5 are:

- Brave Police J-Decker
- Shippu! Iron Leaguer
- Giant Gorg
- Idolmaster Xenoglossia
- Gurren Lagann

Yes, I'm pretty exclusively into mecha. I'm also really, really picky, so a lot of the popular offerings have never really interested me. Giant Gorg, though, is pretty much a completely forgotten masterpiece from the 80's and will have you sitting on the edge of your seat the entire time.

Bleach
Dragonall Z/Super
Steins Gate
Angel beats (oh gawd the feels!)
Bokurano
Ghost Hunt
Fate Stay/Night
Fate Zero
Fate Unlimited Bladeworks

Sticking to stuff I haven't seen listed...

I've been watching Bungou Stray Dogs lately, and it's definitely somewhere near the top of my list. Assassination Classroom is awesome; I also like Hellsing Ultimate and Tokyo Ghoul.

I volunteer to be the topic's obligatory JoJo's fan.  ;) JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is amazing, and it only gets better as it goes.

Recent manga favorites include Dr. Stone and Robo x Laserbeam, but iirc both are only being published in Shonen Jump right now. I think the first Dr. Stone tankoubon was supposed to come out sometime this year?

Yes, the music was phenomenal! What's really strange for me is that this anime was MY coming-of-age story. I used to identify so much with Renton. He was angsty, selfish, brash, and self-entitled. But he grew up and learned so much throughout the anime, that by the end he was loving, brave, proud, empathetic, and had a sense of community. 

I was looking for a decent youtube video of Shounen Heart and I couldn't find one! So I just ripped one myself lol

I absolutely loved Outlaw Star when I was younger! My screenname was CasterGuy50 on Netscape lol  The idea of a literal trump-card in bullet form is cool, but I just loved the character and adventures; older anime like that just always were appealing to me! Also some other really good choices!

My main computer is named Outlaw Star II with my hard drives labeled as main engine one and two, and the extra hard drive and external drive called Reserve engine one and two lol.

but Eureka 7 was a great anime, I had plans to go back and watch it but havent had time in forever it feels (mostly because now that im older I want to understand the story better and not just go through the motions)

Ah Ranma. The outlet for many a budding trans girl's fantasies. ;D (Also just plain funny. <3 Rumiko Takahashi.)

I remember when I first heard of Ranma.  A high school friend of mine had Animayhem cards, two of which were Ranma - one his male side and the other was Ranma’s female counterpart.  Immediately I was intrigued.  Though I had my transgender feelings throughout my entire life I didn’t know I was trans, but now that I do it’s so obvious why I liked Ranma from the start.

For me I found the Super Nintendo fighting game at whatever it was that predated Gamestop as a kid. Read the synopsis on the back and without any idea how good the game was I bought it without a second thought. ;D Then did the same for the anime VHSs Viz was advertising inside the game box. (Fortunately, it was a great game and a great anime. :D)

I adore just about everything Ghost in the Shell.  The films are superb and the SAC series were great too.  Arise wasn't quite as good though.
Cowboy Bebop is great as well.
Space Pirate Captain Harlock is a really solid movie.
Akira is a classic of course.

I really wanted to love Trigun and Full Metal Alchemist but they were just too campy for me.

EDIT: Appleseed is another good series of films.

Yes that is precisely the sort of thing that annoys me.  Cowboy Bebop has a bit of that but it's applied sparingly.  The rest of the story more than makes up for it.
Title: Re: Whats your favorite anime/manga
Post by: OliverR. on March 05, 2019, 04:12:36 pm
I never got into cowboy bepop, but I think it may be because i tried watching it after all the hype died down and I was kind of disappointed (I can see why people love it though) Funny, because there are a lot of anime who use that kind of humor, but for some reason with Full Metal Alchemist I noticed it more...
Title: Re: Whats your favorite anime/manga
Post by: zirconia on March 06, 2019, 07:53:17 am
The voiceovers may make a huge difference. The few glimpses I've seen of English versions have to me sounded so overblown and unnatural that I've immediately either changed the channel or turned whatever machine I used off. The French versions, however, have been so true to the originals that I've found it uncanny. (I don't understand French, but the tone and feeling were there.)

There are nuances in Japanese that are easy to lose unless both the translator and voice actors are absolutely top notch. I believe the same is true of every language...

Although I love all of the older stuff, I have noticed that the english dubs have been getting better and better lately. Are they putting more money into it than they used to? As much as I love some of the older shows, some of the anime that i used to like had god awful english voiceovers

Mine are mostly main stream, but they are still fantastic!

1.) Fairy Tail (far and away my fav)
2.) My Hero Academia
3.) Dragonball Z
4.) Naruto (original and Shippuden, Boruto is kinda meh)
5.) Sword Art Online
6.) Assassination Classroom
7.) Attack on Titan
8.) Izetta the Last Witch
9.) Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
10.) Seven Deadly Sins
11.) Black Clover (starting to like it now that I have gotten over Asta yelling all the time)
12.) Overlord
13.) Zoids (haven't seen it in forever though, might suck now  :P)

Semi-Anime Honorable Mentions (for the feels):
1) Pokemon (mostly the older series)
2) Digimon
3) Yu-Gi-Oh

Can't stress how influential Fairy Tail was in helping me through some dark times, planning on getting a tattoo for it eventually.  Plus the soundtrack is amazing.  :laugh:
