    Hulu has a lot of Funimation series in their library while Crunchyroll doesn't have any I think. Hulu with their commercials are irksome, but they have shows I like (Freezing, Jormungand, Tamako Market) that CR doesn't offer, so I just suck it up and deal with the annoyance.

    Yeah but unfortunately they bleep a lot of the curse words.

    too many anime to list, sufficive to say I've watched a lot.

    Attack on Titan was probably the last really good anime I've watched. I'm skeptical of where the story goes in the long run (not going to read ahead in teh manga).

    Norogami gets an honorable mention (manga's better than the anime).

    The current spring anime shows leave more to be desired
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    That's because I am a huge Digimon fan.

    When I was a kid... my mom bought a VHS fan-rip of the Macross movie, Do You Remember Love. It was all cartoons (it is all cartoons), but we tended to be aware whether something was homegrown or foreign-born (or just had its character designs and animation done abroad).
    I grew up on Speed Racer, and 3000 Leagues in Search of Mother and later Dragon Ball (not z).

    Had no idea those were anime until years later.

    My favorites are:

    Kino's Journey (of course)
    Neon Genesis Evangelion (the first anime I ever watched in its entirety)
    Serial Experiments Lain (confusing but good!)
    Time of Eve (Indie anime done right)
    Madoka Magica (A terrific tragedy worthy of most its hype)

    And for manga, I've been reading:

    Berserk (5 volumes in)
    Twin Spica (6 volumes in)
    Wandering Son (2 volumes in)
    Neon Genesis Evangelion (reading out of order for convenience)

    I grew up on Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Digimon, but Digimon is the only one that has aged well. I also watched Fighting Foodons but we don't talk about that.

    As far as streaming services go, I'd also recommend Crunchyroll. It simulcasts most new series as they air in Japan and keeps recent ones up for a good while so they have a great selection. They also carry some other fan-favorite titles like Gurren Lagann and (until recently) most the Gundam series, which is how I was introduced to these series.

    Sci-Fi was definitely what got me hooked on anime that I clearly knew was anime. I mean I watched Robotech, G-Force, Voltron, Ronin Warriors and Teknoman/Tekkaman Blade (which had an awesome opening theme), but I never recognized them as distinct from Western productions.

    Vampire Hunter D, followed by Robot Carnival helped change that for me.

    No, UK seems to get the shaft much worse when it comes to DVD releases of anime, but you do get benefits that NA doesn't.

    The earlier years were definitely the better for the SyFy channel then. 92/98 circa.

    Can't help you there, unfortunately, but just wanted to say I had no idea there was a new 'Ghost in the Shell' OVA series. I need to get my hands on that. I loved the '90s movie, as well as GitS:SAC, I thought 2nd Gig was okay, but the GitS:SAC movie just put me to sleep. I never read the manga, but I'm always happy to see new stories involving these characters.

    I am currently watching 3 anime series (trying to watch an episode a day of each series), namely Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ (I'm on episode 9), Fruits Basket (ep. 15), and Full Metal Panic!: Fumoffu (ep. 10). I count Full Metal Panic! among the funniest TV shows that I have ever seen. Voice acting in it is great as well. I recognized Seki Tomokazu's voice right off the bat.

    I enjoyed the new OVA more than I thought I would but they're taking their sweet a** time putting them out. It's like a Brian Hitch or Joe Mad comic

    Has anyone checked out Sidonia no Kishi? I just watched the first 3 episodes and I'm kinda liking what I've seen. Another futuristic Mecha/Dystopianish series that's had some laugh out loud moments. I also think it's completely computer animated. Not like Pixar or anything but the style seems very different.

    Watched:
    • Fullmetal Alchemist (did not see Brotherhood, it's on my list of things to watch)
    • GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka
    • Eyeshield 21
    • Captain Tsubasa (all incarnations)
    • Hajime No Ippo season 1, and the following movies
    • Kicker
    • Naruto (I stopped caring during the new great ninja war arc, it got tiresome and boring, which is sad, I loved a big chunk of Naruto)
    • Bleach (I regret watching past the first 64 episodes, or whenever before the filler Bounto arc starts)
    • Fairy Tail (stopped after the competition, thought it made a perfect point to drop the series so I won't gett too attached and get severely disappointed later)
    • Sword Art Online (interesting, enjoyable, and I'm one person who enjoys the arc not being a very long one)
    • Fuumuufuu (comedy Fullmetal Panic show)
    • Hunter X Hunter (old series)
    • Death Note (I'm watching this again)

    There are more, I don't remember them now

    I recently saw Angel Beats! recently and thought it was awesome. Does anyone have any recommendations for it? I'd prefer it to be on the funnier side like the Haruhi Suzumiya series than the sad side like Clannad.

    Ah well I have read the Manga...I will say the order of episode vs manga chapters is off but that should normalize out as for where it goes... I dont think you will be disappointed.

    All Time Favorites: Death Note, Gurren Langan, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Black Lagoon, and Cowboy Bebop.

    Not really watching anything right now. I was watching Gundam Build Fighters, Kuruko no Basket and Kill La Kill.

    I really wish someone would translate the Tylor novels. Apparently they're hilarious and just as stuffed with references to older SF as the show.
