    Allow me to do it then.

    A dark fantasy manga.

    Actually, THE dark fantasy manga.

    Berserk tells the story of Guts, the Black Swordsman. In the first three arcs, we are introduced to Guts as this no-nonsense, badass guy with a dark past who travels around killing monsters.

    The manga then flashbacks to the Golden Age arc and begins to tell exactly how Guts became Guts. Turns out there is a lot more to him killing monsters than you'd think.

    It's pretty damn good.

    It's also incredibly dark at some points; so be prepared if you decide to go into it.

    Nice job.

    That reminds me. There's also an animated tv series that came out a few years back. It pretty much covers up to the end of the Golden Age Arc and stops there. What a great series and that ending was chilling. Beautiful soundtrack as well with great voice acting from the Japanese cast. Recently they came out with a few animated movies that re-tells that same arc done with modern anime practices and plenty of CG, which I didn't like based on previews. I've never seen these movies so I can't comment on the quality. I believe both change a few minor things from the manga to streamline it a bit.

    Akira
    Cowboy Bebop (dat soundtrack)
    Evangellion
    Ergo Proxy
    Afro Samurai
    Black Lagoon

    It seems i mostly i have a thing for Cyberpunk/sci-fi though im open to other stuff.

    Im eying Hellsing and Steins Gate. Any opinions on those?
    And im just after general recs based on what ive liked so far.

    In addition Ive never read any manga and am pretty much unaware of whats out there so if theres anything that would seem to be in my wheelhouse please shout it out.

    Thanks!
    Start with Steins Gate....& if u want a shw with very smart & tactical lead xcters get No Game- no lyf, Deathnote & Code Geass.

    Animax recently started showing Space Dandy. Looks like a fun series.

    I recently read a manga called Omaera Zenin Mendokusai! translated in Japanese as "You're all annoying!"

    It is a harem romance comedy involving a male teacher and his three female high school students.

    Mysterious Girlfriend X just ended rather abruptly.

    Whether it was by cancellation or the mangaka wanting to end it and try new things I can understand.

    It's not been as good as it used to be and wasn't really going anywhere. But it was overall still fun and its interesting take on relationships was largely enjoyable all the way through. So it's probably better that it ended on an ok note rather than over staying its welcome.

    I'm going to miss this little oddball of a romance series. If you don't mind spit being exchange via fingers rather than mouth to mouth and want something with a bit more of a soothing pace, then i recommend that you check out Mysterious Girlfriend X.

    That's too bad. I read the first few chapters and loved it, but lost track of it. I was surprised it was still ongoing when I checked a few ago. The mangaka should have probably ended it awhile back.

    Watched the first episode of Appleseed XIII on FUNimation Channel On Demand. I'm not a fan of the animation style but some of the action sequences were pretty good. Has anyone watched this series and is it worth following?

    Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works TV series Episode 0 Prologue.

    Holy shit that was awesome. Been a long time since I watched the first tv series adaptation of Fate/Stay Night, but if they keep this up, this will blow previous works out of the water. Such lively, great animation from UFO table, and Rin was HNNGGGG.

    I wish she remained the main POV character honestly.

    Nanatsu no Taizai anime episode 1:

    They did a really good job with the adaptation here.

    The voices a good, the music is great and the animation kicks ass. Which is pretty much all I really want from an anime adaptation of a manga I really like.

    I hope that they're going the same route as Magi, making one season that covers a few arcs then they take a break and pick up later with a new season.

    I recommend it to everyone who enjoys fun action shows.

    Good to hear. I'm glad more people are going to get exposed to this property. Big NnT fan!

    I hear this adaptation is 24 eps. My guess is they stop at the Capital of the Dead arc, as that's the best end-point I can think of in the early part of the story.

    Demons.

    Dashing Rogue Protagonist with Afro.

    Big Dragon.

    Awesome.

    Really enjoyed Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis. Top-notch animation. Decent voice cast and music. It really surprised how strong it was. Definitely going to be a must watch.

    This season looks like it's shaping up quite nicely so far.

    I'm thinking that it'll go to the Byzel Festical Fight arc. That just feels like a more appropriate season finisher. We'll see how they go about with things.
