    What you consider "win" or "fail"

    We all have our likes and dislikes, as well as what we want and don't want to see. This thread is meant to act as a place where you can feel free about stating, discussing, and viewing opinions.

    This thread of course follows the sites rules and terms. Do not share anything pornographic, do not be rude or untoward anyone, and as a whole remain orderly. No one likes gibberish, so remain coherent enough for people to grasp what you "like" or "Dislike" in an anime or manga.

    Some of us like mystery. You may not like mystery, so be sure to state in a respectable manner or not at all. For those groups of people that start a clique of strong-arming others into agreeing with them, please be aware the Prime Administrator is watching.

    Enjoy the thread, and all it has to offer.

    Ghost in the Shell SAC was an epic win IMHO.

    The artwork was superb, both the english and Japanese VAs did excellent jobs with their respective characters and Kenji Kamiyama did a fine job of adapting the manga to the big-screen.

    All three of the SAC works are worth buying IMO.
    I own them all and I rewatch the show on [as] whenever I get the chance.
    The all seeing eye is always watching.

    Witch Hunter Robin

    I liked this series quite a bit, but I have to pick on it for two reasons.
    One, is there a good reason why nobody can finish a damn sentence!?!?!?
    - Well, I gues we should...
    - Maybe if we try...
    - But I...
    - How will we...
    You get the picture. First it was funny, then it just got irritating.

    Second,
    How friggin' long does it take for the group to trust Robin?
    In the LAST episode, they are like, Um, I don't know if we can trust her...
    Aaarghhh!!

    Anyway, it is still an anime series that I would recommend.

    Gundam 00 is an epic WIN!

    I love Gundam UC universe the best, but 00 comes very close.

    It has it all.
    Mecha.
    Romance,
    Intrigue.
    Betrayal.
    And an alien menace that you don't see coming.

    One thing it doesn't have...MOE!
    I hate MOE. ;)

    Total win IMHO.

    It's well-liked despite it's average ratings for a Gundam show. I like it too, Kodai. Though then again I like most mecha. Long as the plot can hold water I'm fine with it.

    I hate MOE.
    I like moe long as it isn't saturated like in some anime. Too much fanservice ruins the atmosphere for me.

    Rai have you seen Hell Girl?

    If so, I'd like to know your opinion on it.

    The show sort of threw me for a curve, not sure if I like it or not.

    Hahaha, to be alittle honest this once I've been meaning to watch it but never got around to it. Currently I'm paying close attention to Pandora Hearts and Scrapped Princess.

    Unfortunately, my feelings on Pandora Hearts is mixed - the anime's build-up was actually quite great, but the ending felt rushed and dulled out. I'm currently following the manga and keeping my fingers crossed for a season two.

    Scrapped Princess I've just started - so I can't give you my opinion on it quite yet.

    Oh, and I've read up on Hell Girl. It does sound interesting, once I thin out my list I'll give it a try.

    Oh I'll bet you'd like Hellgirl.

    Pandora Hearts I've never heard of.
    I'll have to check that one out.
    My buddy has told me a lot about it.
    He says it's a great series.
    Geseric also tells me that Claymore is supposed to be really good.
    I haven't seen that one yet either.

    Oh, if you like zombie flicks, check out High School of The Dead.
    It's not really my kind of movie, but if you like horror you'll like HOTD.

    High School of The Dead.
    I can only take a certain about of sexually explicit fanservice before I feel offended about it.

    I've seen HOTD, and I really can't say I can take the storyline seriously when there are panty shots and flinging breasts every three to five seconds. I stopped after episode 7, it was just too much for me to handle in the end. I moved towards other series, the kind that didn't rely so strongly on the 'fapservice'.

    Bleach is a WIN in my book. Ichigo is one of my most favorite characters!!! The American voice acting is awesome, and in fact that whole crowd that does Bleach, Code Geass, GITS, Death Note are some of the best anime voice actors ever. I really don't have a preference for reading subtitles or hearing the dubbed version, but sometimes it does make a difference. Like in Tenchi Muyo - the voice acting is some of the WORST! I mean, it is really bad. They do improve a little, but damn. With the current crop of voice actors though, I think they do a great job.
    With that said, I do have a few beefs with Bleach, namely the "recap" and the "recap of the recap". I mean, really, do they have spend the first five minutes of the episode recapping what happened in the very last episode??!! Also, there seems to be an overuse of a few phrases (usually during a battle): "Impossible!" and "It can't be!" But the worst is the levels of power-up:
    - "You have not seen the full force of my power"
    - "Wait till you feel the power of my ultimate attack"
    - then "my true power"
    - then super ability
    - true super power
    - ultimate true super power
    - extreme ultimate true super power
    - super dooper extreme ultimate true super power
    - and finally "the Power of Anger Badass"

    By the way, my all-time favorite overused anime cliche (usually said enthusiastically by a female character) is "I'll do my best!!"
