Huh? No love for Hajime no Ippo or Major? Well I suppose I'll be the first.

I'm currently rewatching both of them. I'm a person who doesn't enjoy anime, but these two were definitely an exception. Though I suppose being a boxer and someone who enjoys baseball plays a factor here. :P But honestly, I've never been into an anime like this before.

Well, I did used to watch Detective Conan and finished Persona 4 The Animation recently. The former does drag on way too much so I stopped, and the latter I ended up getting the game which is a much more enjoyable experience.

reading a bunch of mangas/manwhas. Recently caught up with "Girls of the Wild", this manwha is so good and finished KHR. *_* I basically read the main mangas, Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, Medaka Box, Breaker : New Waves, and HSD.

As for anime, at the moment watching One piece, started from episode 1 like in September, slowly taking my time and watching it. Lastly, my new love, Horizon on the middle of nowhere, or Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon. Honda Futayo <3

Watched Digimon Xros Wars this summer. It was really amazing, and I am thoroughly impressed. They said that it was aimed at younger audiences, but that turned out to be a rumor, and I was shocked, and satisfied at the amount of suggestive themes in it. Every anime needs a few suggestive themes. If only the American dubs didn't ruin them.

I actually started reading Girls of the Wild about a week or two ago, I didn't really expect much from it when I started it. Has anyone read Kongou Banchou or Denpa Kyoushi ?

My most favorite anime of all time has to be Kekkaishi, so if you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it. If you have, I recommend reading the manga, since it offers a continuation to the story.

It has one of the best concepts for an anime IMO; making fun of world history using characters which represent the countries of the world.

Ouran High School Host Club! It's one that I've only finish watching recently but I really loved it, it's such a great anime. I know it's really cheesy and not the best quality dialogue, but I find it hilarious and the characters are really lovable. It's great how the show is formatted and how each episode tends to give you a little more depth about a certain character and it's just basically a great anime in general. Also Arcana Famiglia but I've watched that about 3 times now in the past few months so I'm not sure that counts any more haha.

Brave 10! Heck yeah. <3 I really like the art style and acting. The premise is unoriginal but it's a decent action anime set in the Sengoku period. And if you're a girl like me, you'll appreciate all the pretty boys.

Letting the airing series pile up a bit by watching the finished series already. : < I'm currently very much into Hakuouki. I had watched the first season and Hekketsuroku a year ago. I liked it quite a lot, but vaguely wished that I could play the game (which was back then only available in Japanese). But this summer I heard there was new material coming, and after a visit to Minitokyo, the flame was bu- blazing again.
I had started to rewatch the series with a friend and we both agreed that we needed to play the game. When we found it it was translated, we were uber happy. :'D

But it wasn't until last month when I started with Reimeiroku that I actually could play the game. And... I'm hooked. |D; It's not just because of the characters' looks, but the characters themselves as well as the story line (the Bakumatsu interests me, thanks to Kenshin :B) and the emotional value add to me being a fangirl. I don't become a fangirl very easily... Haha. 8D;

For the past 2/3 months, I've been watching both Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist : Brotherhood in both Japanese and English (mainly so my little brother will watch it with me) and I will admit, I love it.
I've also been planning to rewatch "Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike" in English. I'm also rewatching "Darker Than BLACK" in English, which is pretty good, apart from the fact Misaki's name is pronounced wrong -.-

I've recently been getting into reading "Otaku no Musume-san" and "Sukitte ii na yo" as well as getting the monthly chapters of "Kaichou wa Maid-sama!" and "Kimi ni Todoke".

Meanwhile-- why does it seem that more and more people are posting here (i.e., JE) as though they're on an imageboard?
I've seen at least four instances of this within the last fifteen minutes and I feel that I must make myself heard when I say that I do not find it amusing in the least bit.
To extrapolate, these are the bland unconstructive kind of comments which are devoid of any meaningful content whatsoever, serving only to say, in more or less words, "you guys (and your tastes/interests/opinions) are stupid, and the topic which you are discussing is stupid, too!" or, when the roles are reversed, "Here are my tastes/interests/opinions. Anything that differs from these are stupid and not worthy of consideration". While not so serious as to be taken in that context literally as spam, they (these posts) are still as tasteless as they are annoying. They are mood-killers and a nuisance. Is it pleasurable to make such comments? I cannot fathom what meagerness of character it would take to drive a person to derive joy through the act of ridicule and belittlement.
One might even say that the phase of internet-influenced psychological development which equates cynicism and social status to be a form of chuunibyou in itself.... !
But no fingers pointed at anyone, of course.

I've been trying to get into Index (novels), but the writing is horrid, both in translation and the original; which is a real pity since the plot is really swell and some of the ideas used in the stories are rather creative.

I've been wanting to watch the Chuunibyou anime, but I haven't had anytime at all. One manwha that I've come across recently that I think is pretty decent is Witch Hunter and another manga that is decent is Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru.

From my experience it's actually a nice slice of life show, I've never watched 'moe' (if this is classified as that, from what I've heard it is) but I was pretty hooked on this one. Maybe because the first few episodes were more fun orientated then the last few I'd recommend watching it if you can and finding out for yourself. I don't know the rights for people outside of Australia, but Madman has licensed it and are streaming it on their website for free here: http://www.madman.com.au/actions/video.do?method=home (apologies if I'm not allowed to link).

Has anyone started reading Assassination Classroom? I've heard it's huge in SJ at the moment and quite good for it's awkward storyline.

For manga, I've just been reading Pokemon Special lately.

For anime, I've just watched Neon Genesis Evangelion for the first time. I didn't find it that horrible, to be honest. I've been going through some depression, anxiety, and other emotional problems lately, so I guess that's why I was able to connect with some of the characters more than I should have.

Both endings to the series are confusing as hell, though.

There is only one ending, essentially Death and Rebirth is virtually that part in End of Evangelion during Instrumentality when Shinji is ruminating about everything. And then when they're on that planet at the end in D&R, that bit is when he comes to accept everything (and then simultaneously ends Instrumentality in End of Evangelion). It's a tad confusing but it's how it went (I THINK).

So I've just finished the last Yellow Chapter in Pokemon Adventures. I loved the conclusion.

Now I'm going to buy the first book of the G/S/C saga
