I am currently re-watching Blood C and just began watching Angel Beats.

As for manga, I began reading the new Blood C manga (just came out this month) and Rosario + Vampire. I am also re-reading the Pokemon Adventure manga because it is just so good!

@ gimmepie, I can recommend Shakugan no Shana. The story is cool enough and the battles are good but it focuses on the relationship between the protagonist and Shana and it's really cute and funny and good.

I just recently finished Fresh Precure and then Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, so now I'm making my way through Yes! Precure 5. At some point I'll finish Lyrical Nanoha A's.

Manga-wise, I read Rave Master and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure in my spare time. Been considering Toriko, but I haven't ever heard anything about it.

Let's see, yesterday I started Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199, which is a remake of an old 70's series. I'll probably watch the original as well since I'm a sucker for old anime.

Still follow Inazuma Eleven: Chrono Stone off and on. I tried giving the series a chance, but it went so far into left field that it doesn't even seem like the original series anymore. Either way, the last episode is next week then they're starting another FFI series. Hopefully it means the series is still salvageable.

My current guilty pleasure anime is Aikatsu! lol, it was the Precure series originally, but after 8 different seasons, it's kinda gotten stale for me.

I've recently bought the first Sailor Moon box set + Sailor V, so I'm currently reading Sailor Moon. I've also started watching the show, and I find it funny how Mercury and Mars appear like 8 episodes in. Jupiter and Venus even further in haha.

This may sound a bit generic, but the two anime (s?) I like are Bleach and Fullmetal Alchemist. I like the manga of both of these, along with the Pokemon Manga.

I'd recommend Death Note, Pandora Hearts, and Zetsuen no Tempest.

I've watched some of Death Note, but I've heard so many good things about the series. The main character gains the power to kill anyone by writing a name in the Death Note while the other main character is placed in charge of finding the one responsible for the murders. They're brilliant and go through much development in realizing their goals.

The latter two are personal top favorites of mine. These series both include fantasy elements (Pandora's contracts with powerful monsters, the Abyss, and Alice in Wonderland themes vs. Tempest's magic/mages and the Tree of Genesis). Both have dark stories and some comical moments (Pandora more so). Both handle interactions between their characters really well and by the series-end, I'm sure you'd fall in love with some character. Some dislike the animation or de-saturated look in Pandora Hearts, but Zetsuen has much love from the Bones animation studio.

I'm currently watching The World God Only Knows, but I'm also re-watching and re-reading the K-On! anime and manga, I just can't get enough of the characters there.

Make sense? Oh, what fun is there in making sense?

I still follow Bleach manga and can't wait for the new anime episodes, of course if only they will be aired.
Lately I've been watching some fights from One Piece.

Been watching and reading One Piece. Thats much is obvious I'm sure. My favorite anime. Not gonna change anytime soon.

Manga - Bleach, Naruto, Fairy Tail, Beelzebub*, Freezing*, Sekirei*, Liar Game**, Gamble Fish*, Berserk**

Anime - Hunter x Hunter 2011 and One Piece. considering giving shingeki no kyojin a chance. Same goes for toriko and initial d.

*on hold till a sizeable amount of chapters are out
**on hold for a few weeks

Derozio here. I'm a friendly guy, I believe. So feel free to talk to me. Hover over to see my PC Pair. I used to be an active member around the forum. Not anymore. But, y'know, Anime is mai waifu and laifu. So I can be found lurking/posting around at the anime and manga forums. My current theme is based on Kamui from Gintama. Wanna talk? VM or PM me.

Finally finished watching Magi yesterday, and it was absolutely BRILLIANT. Really enjoyed it, that said, it can't top Hunter x Hunter. That's definitely my favourite series so far, though that could change in the future.

@ Blade
I dropped Zetsuen after 3 or 4 episodes. Had high hopes for it since it was coming from Bones and generally i enjoy shonen anime. The art was superb however i found the pace to be a little slow, they kept adding random shakespeare quotes and i did not find the characters very likeable.

I have been watching Kokoro Conenct and I'm planning to go through the light novel series and I have finished Darker than Black's first season and started the second recently.

I'm also planning to give Pandora Hearts, Zetsuen no Tempest and Death Note a look in soon.

1) That was one of the best parts :/ With Kana Hanazawa being the one to quote :D
2) That's why it's called Zetsuen no Tempest as The Tempest is one of the Shakespeare's plays which doesn't necessarily ends in higeki (tragedy).

Anyways to answer. I'm now only into Devil Survivor 2 The Animation but I'm watching 20 anime of this season =D

I'm mainly watching Futari Wa Pretty Cure Splash Star at the moment. Nowhere near as good as Suite, but still quite enjoyable, and it's reached the point now where I don't feel right if I don't start my day with an episode of a magical girl anime of some kind. Ahaha.

Other than that, I'm hovering between multiple anime at the moment. I started watching Persona 4 the other day in the hopes that it'd inspire me to start playing the game on my Vita again, but it hasn't really worked. I've got a couple of episodes of Tamako Market left, and I've been watching Darker than BLACK dubbed to see if it makes any more sense in English...it doesn't, really. But it's still a pretty good show.

^Hmm what was going on in Darker than Black besides boom electricity in your face? I forgot. :P

Recently finished:
Psycho-Pass
This was a very gripping anime with some gory scenes. Not for the faint of heart; I bawled. I like the interesting themes and moral dilemmas revolving around some very advanced technology, the psycho-pass scanning guns. I finished it in a few days.

Watching:
Shingeki no Kyojin (ongoing)
Suisei no Gargantia (ongoing)
Ah My Goddess
Tamako Market
Kakumeiki Valvrave (ongoing)
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Plan to watch:
Fate/Zero
K Project (had dropped it, but will reconsider now)
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (again)

I'm a huge anime fan but haven't really had time to watch much lately.

Bleach has been the main anime I've followed for years.

Also anyone who is thinking of watching Death Note I'd definitely recommend it, one of my favourites. I found it very gripping and it's one of those I could watch over and over again.

Blue Exorcist is another I'd recommend, really hoping there will be another series.
