    Raise your hand if you watch!
    *Raises hand*

    Alright. i surprised that a thread about anime hasn't been created yet (or alive because after 7 pages of search its not there). If i were to list the amount of anime i've watched, i would assure you, your eyes would explode and your brain would melt wondering how and why i have watched so much. If you need something about anime, i'll be sure to find it [​IMG]

    So discuss. and i don't want any of those "ZOMFG ANIME IS FROM NIPLAND, I HATE SQUEELY VOICES AND CRAPPY KIDS SHOWS. THEY LACK PLOT AND THE ART SUCKS!!~!@!~@!~!ONEONEON!~!#~!~@~@~@ICANTYPEINALLCAPS"

    One thing. Don't watch dubbed anime.
    Dubbed anime lack many things... [​IMG]


    DUB and compare to SUB/Original
    ------------------------------
    Bleach
    Rurouni Kenshin (Actually, I think RK is OK in the dubbed version.)
    Yu-Gi-Oh
    Yu-Gi-Oh GX

    Can't think of any others right now...?

    A lot of dubs are bad but it's worth giving them a chance, some of them will surprise you. And it's nice to actually watch the animation for once rather that having your eyes stuck at the bottom of the screen, if it's a detailed animation you'd be amazed how much you miss. I'm currently watching Death Note on Adult Swim's website and none of the voices have pissed me off so far [​IMG] It's not as good as the books but nothing ever is. I went off of anime because I got sick of seeing the same worn-out themes recycled over and over, so it's awesome when something a little different comes along.

    Agreed, the Fullmetal Alchemist dub really surprised me, it was much better than I had expected.

    ... Yes, the FMA dub is really good. But some others.... *points to avatar*

    I really like Fullmetal Alchemist and Death Note.

    I watch a ton of anime. I love it. I mostly watch sub,s, because I try and keep up with the current seasons (even though I haven't watched Bacanno! yet.... >_>).

    Speaking of the current anime, there doesn't seem to be anything good coming out this coming season. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei 2looks alright (if season 1 ever gets finished), and the now ARIA will probably be good, but that's it, it seems. Man these last seasons had such good shows, like GL, Dennou Coil, Moyashimon, Genshiken 2, and Kaiji.

    I don't have a wall of manga and anime for nothing. Neither do I have over 1TB of it for nothing. >_>

    I watched animu before it was popular. Then everyone started to watch animu so i stopped. End of the story. Or maybe i just watched every good series. Who knows.

    Same here. Death Note is a great series. And the dubbed FMA is pretty good too.
    Meh, I'ma watch another episode of Death Note, YGO GX, then hit the hay. It's 4:00 AM here.. and I'm really tired. [​IMG]

    I've watched pretty much all of Naruto (SUUUUBBED) (No fillers though =D) and a few of Bleach and some others.

    Yea the upcoming season is looking pretty bland. SZS2 is the only one I'm interested in, but I'm getting kind of bored with the first season already. Fall season didn't offer much for me either other than Clannad and Minami-ke. Spring and Summer was a pretty epic lineup for me since I love the mecha genre.

    The mainstream weeaboos who live off of adult swim? Yeah, not many have seen it. A sizable amount of internet anime fans have seen Monster (or at least have heard of it), though. It's an excellent series.

    I've watched so much anime and read so much manga it's not funny. Though I'll list some of my top favourite Anime. Not in any particular order (except the first one) By the way, I only watch subbed anime.

    Kero Kero Chime. Best anime ever. (Not to be confused with Keroro Gunsou)
    Hoshi no Kaabii (Kirby of the Stars) 4kids absolutely destroyed this awesome show. The original version is basically an entirely different show. Don't judge Kirby by the dubbed.

    Doraemon
    Mahoujin Guru Guru
    Ichigo Mashimaro
    Bottle fairy
    Cromartie High School
    Otogi Juushi Akazukin
    Sensei no Ojikan
    Sketchbook~ full colours
    Binchou-tan
    Bomberman Jetterz
    Animal Yokocho
    Kogepan
    Goldfish Warning

    And those are just my favourites! I've watched tons more than this.

    I agree that most dubs are absolute rubbish and subs are the way to go, but some arn't so bad, like most of the Ghibli film's dubs are ok. The only dubbed anime I've watched fully is FLCL since on some parts I could not read fast enough at all to catch what was being said..

    Favorite anime- Kanon or Air (which I consider to be a sort of lite sized Kanon, although the ending is much sadder in Air [​IMG])

    finished watching a recent anime called "Buccano" the other day - it's very good twisty cowboy bebop style but set in 1930s america. fansubs are very good quality.
