Not really that far ahead, but it's just a completely new arc has started that(so far) resembles the Bleach of old.

[QUOTE="funsohng"][QUOTE="Young_Charter"]Death Note is very interesting... I should've watched this a long time ago out of all of my other animes.. lol Young_Charter
just watch it till the half way point. the first half is amazing, the latter half is painful.

till I get up to 15 or so ? I am already I think on 11- 12.. [spoiler] the episode when they were playing tennis [/spoiler]

I didn't watch the anime, only read the manga, but you are far way from the point I was referring to. maybe a little more than half way. You will know when you hit it though, it's when new characters come in.

Yeah, it seems Kubo might redeem himself. Let's hope so because after the boring Arrancar, Hueco Mundo, FKT and [spoiler] Deicide [/spoiler] arcs my hopes for Bleach weren't high. On supposition, a friend of mine belives that [spoiler] the ramen guy is Aizen [/spoiler]

So who do you guys think is/are the strongest anime character(s) in existence? I choose the gold knights from Saint Seiya (each gold knight is strong enough to solo the entire DBZ universe)
#461 Posted by Young_Charter (19869 posts) -
I wish they made a Scott Pilgrim Anime/Cartoon... To me that'll be hott
#462 Posted by I_Stole_the_Tv (1332 posts) -

I keep meaning to start watching anime again but I usually just can't decide on a series. Any recommendations would be cool. I have a lot that I haven't watched but hope to one day, lol.

Anyway, some of my favorites: Legend of Galactic Heroes, Paranoia Agent, Boogiepop Phantom, Monster, Gankutsuou, Mushishi, Bartender, Baccano!, GTO, Yakitate!! Japan, Hajime no Ippo, etc.

If you want another anime like that... (modern time, school)... School Rumble or Fruits Basket! School Rumble is actually really good and Harima Kenji is one of the coolest looking characters ever.

If not, Spice and Wolf.

School Rumble Forever! It still remains my favourite anime/manga. Damn it was a great ride. However I'd say SR is more Romantic comedy with a touch of drama, while Toradora is Romantic drama with a touch of comedy.

I'd say Toradora is more in the vein of shows like Clannad, Kanon, True Tears, Honey and Clover and indeed Spice and Wolf.

While School Rumble is more akin to Hayate no Gotoku and Seto no Hanayome.

All of them have romance and comedy though YC, and they're all really good in their own way, and I'd never not recommend School Rumble to anyone.

Well I found Toradora to be frickin hilarious but the Drama in in also mixed with romance made it Mazing. So School Rumble will be this way or better ?

Hmm, it was a bit different for me, sure I remember laughing at times watching Toradora, but I can't really recall those specific scenarios now, whereas I can easily recall the drama in the show. The anime I stated in the same line as Toradora, have sorta the same effect. If you reallly want/like heavy drama associated with your romantic comedy, then those are good shows. While they may have some comedy in it, it's usually the drama that drives the show. Those shows I mentioned might be your best bet if you haven't seen them, and you'd prefer something similar to Toradora.

SR is different. If your main aim is for lots of comedy/hilarity (even more than in Toradora), especially highschool/romance comedy then School Rumble should deliver. The drama side is much lighter than Toradora though. In essence, it's less serious. It still manages to move the story/plot along though even with little drama. At least one of the best things about SR is that it isn't a typical harem romance, like almost every other show I mentioned. The only downside to SR is that there isn't a proper third season of the show.

Saki was an awesomely fun watch, even if I don't understand mahjong.

The guy is a shinigami with the most powerful spiritual energy. He needs to use an eyepatch for seal a good deal of his powers. With only using a Shikai (don't believe me but I think he is the same case as Ichigo, can't seal his sword) he can make some serious damage. With a bankai that is a more powerful state of his sword... And that without including hollow powers.

I see... Wel after Death Note I'll check it out... Specially since you took the time to detail it.. I love it when people detail and explain to me why I should spend a few hours or minutes on these episodes :)

School Rumble is pretty good, but not as good as Toradora. Read the manga though, it goes a lot further.

In Bleach, higher spirit energy=more power, more speed. Endurance is a given. It's basically the same in DBZ, Hokuto No Ken, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Naruto.

His spiritual power is his endurance, speed and power. Ichigo when he first fought Kenpachi couldn't damage him, in fact, instead of cutting him he cut himself thanks to Kenpachi's energy.

Nah I wouldn't know. It's not like it inspired me to learn mahjong. It was a nice fun watch though.

Who's watching Index? Can't say I'm all that into it, enjoyed watching Railgun more. But at least Accelerator makes an appearance now and then.

So I checked him out and apparently his fighting speed is hypersonic, sorry but I don't think that's enough to defeat any of the gold knights.

I would actually recommend Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (a lot of people have being saying Gurren Lagann, but that is an english show that does disservice the integrity of the anime). I would also recommend Eureka 7 and Code Geass.

I have saw some episodes the first and I didn't understand it at all. No offense but I believe in the mechas area Code Geass is one of the best out there.

The Three animes i mentioned just so happened to contain mechas but in no way are they about them. TTGL has possibly the most epic story out there, E7 has a beautiful story, and CG is just brilliant (it is almost flawless, except the transition from R1 to R2)

Still they contain mechas and a lot of it so you better make sure you can stand it. Personally I do not like robots very much at all. I haven't watched Eureka 7 but the two others are good. Although I got a bit tired of all the combat, Tengens EXTREME DRILLAAALAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA stuff was cool the first or maybe second time but it just kept going and going and going until it became ridiculous. I remember having a hard time liking Code Geass because of the robot stuff but looking back I can say it's great.

#488 Posted by ULTIMATEZWARRIO (6026 posts) -
Yea, you should definitely watch Eureka 7 of all of the three because it is more heavily story oriented than the others, and they do a great job of character growth and development. Well now that I think about it they all have great character development but, I think E7 does it the best.

Yeah, that's a must for anyone that likes mechas or good stories with great character development. Despite being 50 or 51 episodes it is interesting till the end. The only problem I have with that anime is the story is quite slow at the beginning.

I found it slow at more than just the beginning. While I know it was a heavy plot point in the series, they got carried away with the teen angst/coming of age aspect of the story that just dragged on and on and on. It had a great few climax moments from all of that, though, I have to admit.
