It's supposed to be good but I didn't get around to finishing it. I think I got halfway.

Oddly enough, this is the first time i've bumped into a reference to him and i kinda marked.
Watched Beck a while ago...good series.

I really like these sort of references to stuff in anime (and in movies for that matter)
I was watching Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan last month and i seriously marked when (during a latter episode) a TV in the background was playing the series with the adventures of Simon and Kamina and had as a theme what *i think* was a modified version of the "Voltes V" theme tune.

Voltes V is the first anime i remember myself watching btw. My dad got the tape - an actual VHS tape, RETRO! - from the local video club when i was a kid and i couldn't get myself to stop watching!

*runs off to YouTube to watch some Voltes V*

4/10, nothing special. Uniquish story, but that's about it. Same people created Cowboy Bebop, though; a lot of Bebopers love it.

I enjoyed Wolf's Rain. 4/10 is quite harsh tbh. It's a 7/10 imo.

You also prefer dubbed over subbed.

On the contrary. I'm 50/50 now. Most Anime shows are usually just as enjoyable in English as they are in Japanese. Some English shows are bad, rarely a Japanese voice cast is poor. Some shows are way better in English though.

I haven't gotten around to watching Black Lagoon. Last show I've watched completely was Haruhi Suzumiya. I need to download it sometime.

I didn't like Wolf's Rain. The first couple episodes come off as promising and intrigueing with the whole wolf/human thing...but the show goes nowhere fast and the finale is lame.

Quite honestly, I didn't take much interest in the series, or rather, I saw where they where headed with the series, and decided not to bother with the headache. Shame really, I tend to like wolves, and some of the character design and development was decent. I actually switched over to watching s-CRY-ed, which was another [AS] anime I quickly dismissed around that time. Back on Wolf's Rain, I think it was the main plot, that felt sporadic as fuck at times, that bugged me the most, if you didn't watch the episode from one to the end, (granted you're not a person who can catch a plot's secret intent a mile away...) you didn't know what the blazing hell was going on for good chunks of the show.


Honestly, I tend to not recommend any particular anime, because it has the accuracy of a blind and death 200+ year old man who's bones are basically the equivalent of DUST, catching a sword with his teeth. Even if the anime fan gives you the series they did like, it's a pretty hard task to give them an anime that will satisfy them. Case and point, I'm not much for love stories and over sappy drama, but I did enjoy a good chunk of His and Her Circumstances (mostly the romantic comedy aspect) and Magikano (again, romance was covered by comedy.) Not to mention I love the Tenchi Muyo series. In reality, the anime viewer can only get a list and description of a series, and go from there, it's kinda like Russian Roulette.

I think the only series I have flat out recommended as of late was Gurren Lagann, and that's really because it's my personal favorite right now. Before that it was Air Gear, until I found out the anime pussed out mid-way through the entire manga series, WHICH IS STILL RUNNING, and ended just after Ikki started to gain ground as a storm rider. The only other thing I often recommend is any of the Hayao Miyazaki films. and the only reason I recommend Miyazaki films is because IT'S HAYAO FRICKIN' MIYAZAKI!

... Got a... little over zealous there...

I like Air Gear. If I had the money I would buy the graphic novels.

I just got done watch Darker than Black. It was alright but it would've been better had they gone into the plot with more depth and explanations. I give it a 6.5/10.
