Bleach was good until it got bogged down with fillers and every fight started taking 20 episodes to finish. Got kind of old.

Code Geass is incredible...I really need to finish it. Kind of stopped watching anime again. >_>

Fairy Tail? I'll stick with actual fairy tales like Snow White and Red Riding Hood. I'm too out of touch with current anime to get into some of these newer series.

I actually never got into Code Geass all that well... Anything that wants to keep the plot mysterious to keep the viewers guessing really shouldn't rely on mystical powers that the viewers cannot possibly understand to plot twist. Oh so convenient that the character's power suddenly [spoiler tag]. Of course it works as a plot twist cause how are we supposed to know that it can do that >_<; Deus-ex-machina not appreciated for a reason!

It started off pretty well explaining the powers to the viewers so that you can understand it, but near the end it just.... =(

This doesn't apply to only Code Geass, but really any forms of media that tries to use an exciting plot to keep the viewers guessing.

List of anime I have seen all episodes of: Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist (original only), FLCL, Samurai Champloo, steins;gate and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Of those, Bebop is undoubtedly the best.

And maybe this is just me coming from too much of a Western background, but anything where a fight scene takes more than an episode just seems horribly superfluous to me...

I always mix up Code Geass and Code Lyoko in my head so I always have an automatic "ew, that show?" moment when people mention it.

I really didn't understand anything about that show, not in the slightest. One episode, they were running away from some goo or something? I don't remember, I just remember turning on the PS2 and playing Burnout, lol.

I don't remember much about it either, but I remember watching it a lot and thinking it was really cool and interesting.

I also remember playing Burnout. That game was fun.

I just remember that they had massive heads and tiny necks or something. I never actually watched it, the art style was too weird for me.

I remember Code Lyoko's arrival at Cartoon Network as the beginning of the end of its glory days. It all went down hill from there.

Burnout was a beautiful game!!! Totally killed any desire for me to learn how to drive because of the amount of times I died, but still a great game!

I just remember Nica having a million Aelita themes and references 6 years ago or so.

Idk, never watched that. I spent all my interest on Codename KND and Scooby Doo.

I loved Code Lyoko from what I can remember of it from my childhood. I didn't particularly watch an entire season as the broadcasting of the show was very sporadic, but I did pop in and out of episodes when they were shown. One thing I particularly liked about the show (was is an anime or a cartoon? I don't remember enough to distinguish) was the art style. It was very unique compared to what was on television at that time.

Scooby <3
My favorite version of Scooby Doo is the version where the theme song is recorded by Simple Plan, lol. Probably because it was the version my generation grew up with, but even now, the corny plots still seem so good!

God, a few months ago I got really into the newest version of the show. It's essentially Scooby Doo with a serial plot that continues from episode to episode and it was magnificent. Sadly it never blew up like MLP did, but it had a surprisingly big fanbase.

The only part of Scooby Doo that I can remember is that Velma seemed to keep losing her glasses. Which seems kinda silly of her, considering that she needs them to see...

I love Code Lyoko! I finally managed to finish watching it about a month or so ago. I cannot wait for the new season! :D

And the fact that she'd always say "jinkies!" when she lost them. I watched the original versions when I was younger. Saturday mornings were the best.

I liked it initially, but after a while the Shaggy x Velma subplot started to bug the hell out of me. Velma will always be a lesbian in my eyes, and Shaggy will only ever love food and Scooby, that's that. Don't try to create monstrous relationships that will never work out!

My glasses! I can't see without my glasses!

Yes, yes she did. Dunno about any of the new incarnations of the show/character, but she regularly lost them in the original series.


Never saw Mystery Inc. But a serial Scooby show sounds kinda interesting

I really liked the Zombie Island direct-to-video movie as a kid. Anyone seen that?
