Have a question, I made a GOG account to get my free backup copy of Witcher 2, and they give you free games for signing up any of these worth downloading and playing.

Ultima is worth playing, Tyrian is usually considered a pretty good Shoot ’em Up.

The general rule of thumb is watch the first three episodes. Some anime set up the entire thing before starting. It varies from show to show though, so you may want to ask around, especially if it’s an anime you hear a lot of people talking about.

Soul Eater, for example, is extremely good. The first three episodes are extremely not. But once you hit the fourth episode it gets a lot better. SAO has a first episode setup. Watch the second episode and if you don’t like that, then you probably won’t like the rest of it.

Thing is, I usually dislike the things most people are talking about, since I end up being utterly disappointed (AoT; Angel Beats; among others).

And after reading many SAO spoilers, I thought “Meh, it might be overrated in my opinion”.

What sort of genre do you like, and examples of some?

Mecha, mainly.

And anything that’s not “mainstream”.

Has anyone else here heard of Heroic Age? I’ve never seen it mentioned before anywhere, but I’m liking it a lot. It’s got a pretty unique feel for it’s genre.

Unfortunately there are a lot of other animes I like but I feel they either won’t like or it is ecchi and I don’t quite want to watch that with them. I wanted to watch TTGL or a few others but unfortunately due to certain characters (Yoko) I don’t feel comfortable watching with them something like that.

Some good anime you could show them which don’t have over-sexualized characters/obnoxious ecchi moments and haven’t been mentioned:

-Cowboy Bebop
-Last Exile
-Darker Than Black
-Eureka 7
-Blue Gender

If you’re fine with sparse/light ecchi moments:

-Soul Eater (mostly the first ep that’s in question here…)
-Inuyasha (several bathing scenes and Miroku…)
-Zatch Bell (Folgore…)
-Spice and Wolf (nude scenes, but not really sexual, sort of)

Cowboy Bebop is awesome. Been thinking about watching Darker than Black after I’m done with some other shows.

In case any of you guys like mecha anime, Super Robot Wars J was translated like three years ago.
If you’ve never played a Super Robot Wars game, they’re basically SRPG mash-ups of different mecha anime series (Unless you’re playing the Original Generations games, which only contain SRW original characters and mecha.), you might want to give them a try.

Keep in mind that most games in the franchise are Japan-Only, and most of them haven’t been translated.

So last week I finished watching Attack on Titan with my mom and sister, today I plan on introducing either Death Note or Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood to them (I’ll let them pick which one) and we’ll start watching it. I gotta say, I had no idea they’d be interested in it, but it feels nice to watch with the family.

lol get them to watch deadman wonderland

It’s actually got a similar feel to AoT.

P.S. shiro is my waifu

Well, if I’m not mistaken, it was made by the same mangaka.

@Indy, will give FMA:B a try someday.

I think Death Note might not be one of the best anime series of all time, but it’s pretty interesting, and a pretty good place to start if you want to introduce someone to anime. Too sad your mother didn’t like it.

Go with FMA: B. I personally didn’t like the original (although I admit it’s pretty good), so I didn’t give Brotherhood a try.

If they end up liking mecha, you could go for Gundam X or Gundam V.

Hmmm, I’d go for Death Note, to be honest. Code Geass would be a pretty good choice in my opinion.

After that, you can move on to some light-hearted comedy series, like Azumanga Daioh.

Flame war? Not even close! I’m sorry if you took what I said as being upset, I certainly was not. I am not bobby or the others but I don’t think anyone got offended or anything.

I know, but since so many people seem to love this show, I think we should just stop talking about it.

My thoughts exactly.

Only good part was Otonashi’s backstory.

Although I didn’t cry, I did find it fairly emotional. Especially Yui’s whole story.

Yui was an okay character in my opinion. To be honest, Otonashi was the only character I cared for by the end of the show, and the only one whose name I could remember

Is it just me or Otonashi is a selfish jerk at the end of the series? Why wouldn’t he want Kanade to move on?
