I'm in.


Also, I caught what I assume is an Easter egg in Read or Die episode 24.

It could be a coincidence, but...

Gundam vs Hello Kitty PV

https://myanimelist.net/anime/39674/Gundam_vs_Hello_Kitty

Ok so it's not like, Hello Kitty gets in a big kitty robot, it's just literally Hello Kitty about to fistfight a gundam.

Yeah this sounds like a good thing. I'm in too.

Better than that, it's literally Hello Kitty gets transported into the Gundam 79 tv show and has to help Amuro Ray

I asked this question about this time four years ago and got some good answers. I'm looking for a decent anime of a quality on par with FMA:Brotherhood, Psychopass, or Baccano! (or decent non-anime, like Avatar: the Last Airbender). I don't care about anime qua-anime, I just like decent high concept TV series and I don't mind if they're animated. The sort of thing I'm looking for:

- Not too long (less than 80 episodes)
- An exploration of an intriguing idea or deep theme
- Multi-faceted characters
- A series-arc where things tie together (i.e. strong structure, minimal filler)
- No (or minimal) fan service

On Crunchyroll, I'm into Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba right now. Give that a go, though it may not pass your par for 'intriguing' or 'deep', those seem like debatable standards.

On Netflix, there's Devilman Crybaby. That one is... a lot more intense. It would definitely fulfill the second and third condition you laid out.

Yeah like, I don't even need subtitles. I'll just watch it like it is there, with no understanding aside from Hello Kitty is about to shrek that Char guy with her bare paws. Probably while set to Japanese disco.

Am I like the only one who actually enjoyed that Castlevania Netflix series from a while back? I feel like that's the case.

I've heard mostly good things about it. Haven't seen it personally, but that's more because I don't have Netflix.

I don't know what you're talking about. Didn't it get universally good reviews? I doubt you're the only one who enjoyed it.

Thereís some classics or top 10ís you could check out if you havenít seen them yet.

Death note
Code Geass
Haruhi Suzumiya

Also Durarara is great if you liked Baccano, Berserk is a good pick if Devilman Crybaby doesnít make you retch, and I personally have a soft spot for subversions like One Punch Man or Nozaki-kun. Overlord should fit in that category but it started getting a bit weird for me, and the fanservice is huge.

Yeah, he's a banned spammer. Normally we'd delete this thread too, but people were having too much fun with it by the time we got here.

See that's what I thought. Everyone I talk to about it though is like mehhhhhhhh I hated the character so and so or the animation was bad mehh. Probably just bad luck on my part then.

I fukkin' cried at the end of season 2 because my toddler was in the other room napping. I needed tissues.

Thanks, I really enjoyed Death Note, though the second half was less coherent and pacey after [spoiler] dies. Haruhi has been sort of on my radar. I started watching Durarara and got sidetracked. I'll have to give them both another go. One Punch I watched the first two episodes and didn't really gel with it enough to want to watch more.
