It’d be against the spirit of it, yeah. There’s no way for me to enforce that though :P I can tell you I didn’t vote for my nomination.

Yeah, I think that’s the popular belief.

Competition Update: 5 Nominations so far. That’s half way!

It’s weird. Death Note was popular, and it had a dub. Why is it that anyone I meet IRL who watches anime hasn’t finished it? Everyone says they’ve only seen a few episodes. Death Note is amazing.

It was one of my first animes ever, that being said, I liked it a lot at the time. Now after watching more than 150 other animes, I feel less about it (although I still think it was good.) I really rushed through Death Note…kind of the type of anime where you can’t just stop at one episode, you got to find out what happens next.

I didn’t really like the final few episodes though. (The last one was fitting though)

in all seriousness though, I just wanted to make this reference of one of my favourite animes
So, after watching the intro of the show, I giggled the whole way through, because I have never seen heavy metal in anime before lol

Really? Not Death Note? Gawd. I hate metal in anime…except for Watamote.

I don’t like the ending, but the OP is fucking amazing. I even have it on my phone.

The opening to me is what she pictures herself as. Someone breaking from chains and being her own person. The ending is more like the reality of her. Clumsy, antisocial, I think it fits very well for both.

It does exactly what it’s trying to.

I can’t rate it badly, because it does what it’s meant to in that it makes you cringe. But I hate it, because it makes you cringe.

Seriously. It wants you to cringe, endless cringe. I liked Watamote a lot though. (Plus the opening and ending were quite excellent for it!)

Right now we’re up to 3 nominatons by the way. 7 more nominations before voting! :D

ATTENTION!

The first anime competition extravaganza begins.

Competition: Best fight scene of any and all anime.

How it works:

Remember that one fight scene with the awesome visuals and amazing punches synced with such beautiful music? Well, say it on here to nominate it as one of the votes. A link to a video of it would of course be appreciated. There will be a maximum of 10 nominations accepted and any after…well, sorry.

Once the nominations are over the voting round will start.

Notice: This is still a work in progress so if you notice flaws or can improve anything about it, constructive criticism is welcomed.

Thanks for pointing it out guys, willing to listen to more suggestions after I finish this.

Glad you enjoy it! I will hopefully come up with another good one afterwards.

I’m fine with it, but I don’t think this thread’s active enough to have any meaningful competition. Do we even have ten active posters here?

Yeah we have 10 active posters I think. It could be posted as an individual thread or posted here.

So I got an idea :P

What if we had a competition each week for certain things? Example:

Anime with best fight scenes.

Someone would nominate their choice and vote on them. Maybe nominate x amount before voting or something.

What do you guys think? :D

Nah, still watching. I don’t really care of all of them died, never expected a full loli harem like that in the end anyway. Was just commenting on how absurd that scene was. Good thing I already watched to that part before reading his post, though.

Okay I just don’t want any spoilers, especially something like that :P

I agree, the opening alone sounds like Attack on Titan remix. I love that one OST that they play when he fights Kagetane

I think FMA:Brotherhood is a decent anime, but not the best choice for a first. It’s kind of dull (and personally I prefer the origanal, anyway). A good choice would be something really engaging||intense like Code Geass, Death Note, or even (please forgive me) Bleach.


I didn’t find FMA:B dull at all, and interesting how you like the original. You have a good point though, Death Note and Code Geass are also very good choices for starting out. As for Bleach idea…well, I’ll forgive you this once.

Also, love the Spice and Wolf avatar, I’m rewatching it right now (this makes the 3rd time watching it :P)

So guys, it’s been a while since I’ve asked for recommendations, but I’ve gone through my big list of “plan to watch”! (Though I still have around 8 more to get to) I’d like y’all to check out my anime list to see my tastes and perhaps give a recommendation on something to watch.

If there is something I’ve dropped or something I plan to watch and you think it’s important to not miss out, let me know!

Thanks,

Indy 1 to the 1 to the 1.

In all honesty, I don’t recommend School Days but I don’t think it’s bad either. There was a ton of foreshadowing leading to the ending that’s almost impossible to miss and some characters were clearly mentally unhinged at the end.

I did not like School Days at all, however, I’ve seen worse. Braves is new to anime so first impression is everything.

I think you mean every anime out there.

Do you have some good in you or are you just pure evil?

The first two links are actually the original FMA. Here’s a link to FMA:B if you want to watch it subbed.

Ah snap! I could have screwed it all up. I updated my post to contain your sub link and my dub link. Thanks.

Oh yeah. I totally forgot about the masterpiece known as School Days. This anime will DEFINITELY make you want to watch more.

Please Cow, we’re going to lose another one!

If you had to recommend to me one show to watch to decide if I would like anime or not (I know it isn’t fair), which one should I choose?

I would suggest Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood for a few reasons.

1. It is genuinely accepted as one of the higher (on MAL it is the highest) rated animes.

2. Easy to follow story.

3. Good action but not all about the action. No cliche love and there is even comedy in here.

4. Great pacing! It’s not like “I promise it’s good just get to the 10th episode it gets really good.”

5. Although I generally prefer subbed, it is dubbed, and very well dubbed at that too. So you can watch in English easily!

6. I know you would love this type.

Make sure you watch Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood and not its black sheep brother, Full Metal Alchemist. I will provide a few links to sites:

Dubbed version.

Subbed version.

Topic: Off-topic / Does 0.99... = 1? Let's debate!

So it’ll be interesting to apply my thoughts onto this.

1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3 = 1
1/3 = .3(continuing)
.3(cont) + .3(cont) + .3(cont) = .9(cont)

This may be a problem with how we use our math in English or just in general. Here’s some thought:

Assume a = b
2 * a = 2a
2 * b = 2b
But since a = b, then 2a = 2b.

2 * a = 2b by this logic.

First Tokyo Ghoul and now Akame ga Kill!

<3

Akame ga Kill is a bit weird, as it is both very dark and also seems to go for comedy…weird combo.
