No porn. LOL The Fairy Tail is a guild, and the story deals with wizards having dragon powers. It's safe for all ages.

Just watched the first episode of the X-men anime, pretty good actually. The quality of the animation makes the U.S stuff look like hobo work. They used a lot of familiar voice actors too and I believe it was written by westerners too. Also started the first episode of the Iron Man anime, good so far.

Just watched the first 3 episodes of Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin), it is really, really good. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Go watch.

Is it like the gifs? If not, then it can only be a crushing disappointment.

Its an anime that is so awesome, that if you don't immediately watch it, I will go to London and slap you silly!

It is like Spiderman meets Shadow of the Colossus.

Humanity is driven to near extinction by titans. Mindless beast that only goal is to eat people. They regenerate extremly fast, so they are almost impossible to kill. So the last remnants of humans have build a city with high walls to keep the titans out. For 100 years humans live in peace, until one day a huuuge titan appears out of nowhere (60 m tall) and breaks the wall. And smaller titans get in, and start eating people, forcing humans to evacuate to the inner walls.

Wow Attack on Titan is soooo good. I could not stop watching, so I am up to date with the anime. But I wanted more, so I started reading the manga. Could not stop and now I am up to date with the manga. Now I will have to wait. I feel so empty Sad

Funny to say as series 1 was watchable but average, Bleach season 2 and 3 so far has been very good.

Iga, I'm watching Attack on Titan (thanks to you and the gifs; thankfully the titans do live up to the hilarity of the gifs). If this shit doesn't have a proper ending I will personally blame you. I just made it through the fucking stupid filler/recap episode. Other than that it's been fun. The best mech anime gimmick in fuck knows how long, and the melodrama and inner monologues are hilarious. Good stuff.

Finished the Xmen anime, not bad like reviews suggested just not sparky or interesting enough. It's your basic resident evil plot, underground base etcl

Watched Full Metal Panic FUMOFFU the all comedy follow up to FMP, lol this is how the series should be. It's not outright joke a minute comedy but when it hits home at least once or twice an episode they are full on belly laugh funny. Absolutely hilarious stuff here which I won't spoil. You dont have to have watched FMP first just know the general setup, Sagari is an undercover military special forces guarding your regular high school girl. Only he's socially..... off and views everything with military goggles.

Consider yourself blamed, Iga.

I am now watching Yatterman (2008/9) which is so much like Pokemon, and not just beyond Team Rocket which were straight up plagiarism/homage. But also the fights, except they (mercifully) don't go on for ages and ages. And by like Pokemon, I mean Pokemon is so much like Yatterman.

The fan subs are hilarious. I think I could probably translate the show just as coherently. Also, Demi Moron as a pun doesn't really work when you don't say moron in English...that's the writer's fault, not the translators. Weird.

Edit:

LOL, I am an idiot. The pun is "bakademi"..."academy". Oops, I need to pay less attention to the fucking subtitles.

I started the Wolverine anime, it's like a bland boring yakuza story with wolverine added.

Watched the first 8 eps of Death Note. It's pretty good but I saw both live action movies beforehand so this stuff is like a repeat. It's very wordy, too wordy in fact. There is no subtley or economy of words, it's like non-stop narration. Some of it is quite clever and it's mostly decent though. I would be enjoying it much more if it weren't for the live action movies.

Saw the first ep of Gantz, wtf LOL the main character hates everything and he's constantly rambling in his mind over stuff he hates. They died and all sorts of weird shit is happening. Good if only because it catches your attention.

I also started re-watching Full metal Alchemist Brotherhood - for FUCKS SAKE why is no one watching what is probably one of the best tv series I have ever seen?! It's world is as successful and creative, cohesive, even more so than stuff like Star Wars, the Matrix or Harry Potter. It's a near perfect series that never puts a foot wrong.
