WHY DO YOU PEOPLE TEMPT ME SO!?!?
Reminds me of a certain anime character...
hmmm, lets see...
my favorite is a tossup between DragonBall Z, One Piece, and Eyeshield 21. I also really enjoyed YuYu Hakusho, and Bleach before it gets all nutty. ive also started watching Gurren Lagann and am enjoying that so far. as for my favorite anime character, none of you would know him because im quite sure im the only one here that has read or watched eyeshield, but Hiruma in that is quite simply one of the best characters in any storytelling medium i have ever seen. hes hilarious, a jerk, a criminal mastermind and a hardass, but is also shown to be incredibly deep, and is given a sense of mystery about him. the closest i can come to describing him is like the joker of an anime if the joker was a good guy and even smarter, and was shown to have real and relatable emotions besides being completely insane. hes the only character ive seen in a show with a single main protagonist (like luffy in one piece or ichigo in bleach) that was able to dethrone the main protagonist in a japanese nationwide popularity contest. also if you cant tell by now, all of you should watch or read eyeshield. i dont care if you like football or not, i didnt care about football at all when i started reading this series, and it immediately became one of my all time favorites through its hilarious situations, great story, and unparalleled characterization.
Anime sucks. and now that I've stated my opinion, to the batmobile!
~ROGUE THREADBOT ATTACKS!
Threadbot would like to remind everyone that there is only one true threadbot, and these "rogue threadbot attacks" are an outright fabrication.
Fear My Strings. Fear them.

FLCL is best anime.
well i was drawing something last night and needed something to watch while doing it (inking can be BOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG but it looks nice)
so stranger linked me to the first episode of soul eater, so i watched it. then 7 more.
and it was good. not mindblowingly awesome amazing, but much better than your average anime. heres my thoughts after 8 episodes
animation wise, its the best anime i have seen. art direction and general fluidity of animation is gorgeous.
story/world wise, its what would happen if tim burton had made bleach. i mean almost exactly. in bleach a boy becomes a "soul reaper", these sort of "angels of death" that fight souls that have gone evil. also their weapons are alive. so yea, major similarities, but i do love all of soul reapers adoption of western folk horror into their universe, such as the witches and halloween stuff, dr franken-stein (i facepalmed at that the first time), and one of my nonbrony friends told me death becomes a major *** later in the series, so thatll be interesting to see. he also told me that the school is supposed to be in Arizona. ill have to ask laws when they got the moon from majoras mask there.
characterwise, its good, not great. they have a lot of good, larger-than-life personalites in there, and Kid and Dr. Stein are both hilarious (kid's severe neurotic OCD is hilarious, but i want to hit the little brat every time he tries to SHOOT HIS MOTHERBUCKING GUNS WITH HIS PINKIE'S! THE BUCK IS THAT ABOUT?!). but beyond that none of them have been built up that second level of personality yet that i enjoy seeing in characters. im probably spoiled by FiM's unmatchable characterization, but i need to see more before i can become attached to any of these characters. and when compared to other manga, id have to say this series characterization so far is above average, but isnt even in the same league as something like One Piece or Eyeshield 21. also, black star is the most god-awfully annoying little sh*t ive seen in a show in a long, LOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNGGGGGGG time. he has some redeeming qualities that show at certain points, but in general hes like Usopp with no justifying backstory or comic relief elements, or like rainbowdash X100 without the redeeming factors. AKA hes like if trixie was a male, a human, and had the most ANNOYING DUBBING VOICE EVER!!! IT SOUNDS LIKE NARUTO HAS LUNG CANCER!!!
so far, im really liking the story and the show's execution. it manages to be goofy without going over the top (for an anime). how does it compare to some of the greats so far? (one piece, DBZ, naruto, bleach?) well, so far, its actually there in the mix of things. i would put it even with YuYuHakusho in terms of quality (which, if you havent seen, is a manga i really respect for ending itself when it appeared it was about to all go to over the top hell like what happened to bleach). i think its slightly below the early episodes of bleach, which were FANTASTIC and really gave off a horror vibe, but like i said bleach goes haywire later in the series and virtually unreadable, so im hoping that doesnt happen here. id say it even holds its own against DBZ, and surpasses naruto by a little bit. it doesnt beat one piece or eyeshield (yet), but its certainly up there in terms of quality.
if i had to rank this on the GI scale, saying for example One Piece and Eyeshield are 10's, DBZ is a 9.5, bleach is an 8.5, Naruto is an 8.5, id have to give this one a 9, right there with YuYuHakusho, one of my all time favorite manga. BUT this is just my opinion after 8 episodes, its likely to drastically change once i get further in.
I'm not huge on anime. I've seen half of Lucky Star and it was surprisingly good, I was thinking about purchasing Dragon Ball Z sometime soon...
My favorite anime and manga ever is Fullmetal Alchemist. I've seen all of the original anime and read every manga.
Alphonse is best pony.
I have now finished Soul Eater.
