I will honestly say that I simply don't watch anime, nor do I read manga.

I do watch other TV shows, though. I'm in the middle of Psych season 3. You guys should look it up, it's funny as hell. =D
As I've gotten out of high school I find I really don't have the urge to watch anime or read manga as much. Every now and then I will look up a short anime series or movie on Netflix to watch, but I don't choose anything that is gonna be a major commitment.

I'm really all about primetime TV now XD Those are my shows.

I have really lost interest in a lot of the prime time shows that air where I live now. They all end up being the same and half of them get a huge build up and then get canned in a few episodes anyway.

Well I have a few that I've been a fan of for a while that are still on: Fringe (on its 5th seasons), Doctor Who (on its 7th season since reboot), True Blood (just finished it's 5th season), Supernatural (on its 8th season), American Horror Story (on its 2nd season), Damages (just finished it's 5th season), Mad Men (just finished it's 5th season)...so many more that I could name but it would get a little annoying. XD

Anyway, my point is, I think there are tons of quality primetime shows that are still airing right now.

Gintama is the best anime ever. Period. No competition.

Care to explain further?

I really don't like when people say "this show is the best show ever". I feel like there are so many different genres of shows (I think animated/live action doesn't make a difference) that is hard to say "show A is number 1, and even though show b is a totally different type of show...show a still wins no matter what".

And most of the good ones are yet to start airing until later this month/early next month. I'm starting to have Breaking Bad withdrawal symptoms, as its last episode of the season aired last night! And it was reeeeeeeeally good, as well. :D

With stuff like that, "the best" doesn't exist, since everyone has different tastes. I could say Angel Beats is the best anime because I loved it but someone else might of hated it.

I really couldn't tell you like Angel Beats, Toujie. Please, drop some more subliminal hints that I probably won't pick up on. x3

Key animes are pretty sad... Clannad After Story is pretty awesome.

Hayate No Gotoku is also pretty good, it's like Gintama but veering more onto the moe side of things.

Here's just some random stuff from Gintama. If you can't tell, this anime is really weird. Story is non-existent, boatloads of pop-culture references and a clear focus on comedy. It doesn't take itself very seriously at all.

September is seriously my favorite time of the year because of Fall premieres. I just really hope I can keep up with my schoolwork and trying to figure out what shows I'm gonna stick with throughout the seasons. September is so crazy cause I'm watching so many new shows, plus the shows I already watch, and trying to figure out which ones I think are worth keeping on my DVR list. Ugh. I'm such a TV addict. XD I should post a picture of my TV on DVD collection...you'd probably think I have a problem though. XDD

On the anime topic, I'm gonna... try to contribute here haha. I'm no real fan of anume at all - in fact, I don't think I ever really got it, although I did ALMOST watch a series once! It was Death Note and I enjoyed it until half the alphabet (if you've seen it you'll know what I mean) got involved and I got kinda lost lol. I've heard good things about Angel Beats! though from this thread and a couple of friends so I might give it a shot at some point I guess. It's really a case of when I get round to it.

Pretty Cure (in any of its various incarnations) FTW! I still haven't seen any sort of fall preview list; I'll be looking forward to that to decide what new series to pick up.

Last anime I watched was Kids on the Slope. First anime I'd watched in a loooong time, and I finished it in basically a day. I kinda wish I could experience it for the first time, again. So many feels.

I used to be more into anime and stuff, but I just haven't been feeling it for a while. I got way into Gundam... but about the only thing I still have going from that is Gunpla. *shrug*

Omg Gunpla are so much fun. I'm not even that into Gundam and I've made 3 different models and have 2 SD models waiting in the closet for me to make time for them.

Total opposite here, in fact it felt drier than normal for us Floridians. Hopefully everyone else had a good Labor Day yesterday.

Labor days always suck when it rains for 'some reason'.

Ours blew and it sucked. that's what she said

Anyways it was windy like all day so even if you were home for the day, there wasn't much for you to do, unless you were going for that windblown look.

I've had an unbuilt kit from 00 for... over a year now. :/ Gotta pick up some paint so I don't have to use the decals, but I keep forgetting.
