... been a few days soooo.

So I haven't watched anime for a long time, but I recently saw all episodes of Angel Beats! and loved it ;; It wasn't the greatest anime ever, the characters were fun but not the most unique, but the overall theme and atmosphere was amazing. I wish I could find another anime with the same feeling.
Beside the mentioned AnoHana (I still remember the whole name of this =DD) depending on how many Key adaptation you've seen, you should give the other Key adaptations (Clannad, Air, Little Busters,...) a chance =)
Key never disappoints =)

I've seen Air ^^ Hateloved it, I think. It had the same eerily awesome feeling though, so true.

Watch Clannad, Rika. It is great.

Which reminds me. Jo asked me for a romantic show. I think I'll just recommend clannad. She NEEDS to see this ****.

Kanon is charming but sappy, and it's another Key/Visual Art's series, just like Air, Clannad, and Angel Beats are. Might be worth a look.

Watch Haibane Renmei, is pretty much what you would get if you gave Angel Beats a competent writer and unique character design.

Is that the one boxing anime? I've never tried it. Sports anime aren't my thing, unless it's Free! :3c

As good as Takamura vs Hawk?
Best anime.


I haven't watched the new series yet, but it's better than New Challengers apparently which is good news. Classic Ippo is still the best tho and untopped.

How's the OST? I know the first episode had the classic one. Please tell me they kept that.

EDIT: @Minzy: I may be biased because I box myself but Hajime no Ippo should be watched regardless whether you even like sports or not. The atmosphere, settings and especially the fights themselves (not really realistic mind you but nearly as entertaining as an actual boxing match) really sets it apart from any other anime. And this has the best cast in any anime.

Ippo is great, Dave. Some really great fights and great characters. I marathoned it like crazy the first time I saw a few eps. It was amazeballs.

OST for the new Ippo series has been fantastic. Reusing some old ones and adding new. I got a boner when they reused the third opening song during the fight with Sawamura.

Good choice. Ippo vs Sawamura is probably my favourite fight in the entire series. Was totally ready for the anime version to be a letdown but it just wasn't.

Whoo! Glad to see some Hajime no Ippo fans out there.

I'm growing closer to catching up with the series (currently on ep 14 of season 3) and I don't want to! Cause then that means I have to play the waiting game for each new episode x.x

While we're all on the topic of sports anime... I never really liked them even though i'm a huge real sports fan and play them myself XD

but after hearing many really good things about both Kuroko's Basketball and Hajime No Ippo, I decided to try out Kuroko and i was actually suprised that I'm really enjoying the show so far XD

Can't say how much I like or dislike sports anime, since I've never really watched them. xD" Been planning to watch Prince of Tennis, but couldn't find it online anywhere. I'll keep looking, though.

Only sports anime I've seen are Free! and Kuroko no Basket. Both of which are totally wonderful for me. :D ..on that note, I need to catch up with Kuroko, haven't seen the last two (three tomorrow) eps agh.

Eyeshield 21 is another pretty good sports Anime. It's a football one, oddly enough. Didn't think Japanese even bothered with football. You can kinda tell with how they do the anime. Even though it is a fictitious realm, they really show they don't exactly know 100% how football works. It's still entertaining though. I enjoyed it as a huge football fan.

I was going to watch a cycling anime but couldn't see myself being attached to it and it seemed fairly bland like some kid that is a loud mouth and stuff helps a quiet introvert kid with his stuff and the shy kids learns about the heart of the cards and stuff...


Fairy Tail is coming back in April too btw

You are missing boner-able materials in your PC?

Again? =D This info has been mentioned more times than what the number of threads in this section is =D


Since we are on topic of sports anime... Ro Kyu Bu is a must! =D

Sports anime? I love them! Ookiku Furikabutte is one of my favourites! Its one of the few series that I marathoned through. I am still praying hard for a new season. There seems to be enough manga material.

Best sports anime for me has and will be Slam Dunk for a while. Captain Tsubasa is another fave, as well. But yeah, Slam Dunk is just amazing. It can be enjoyed even by people with no basketball knowledge. :p Kuroko is good but Slam Dunk is somewhat more grounded in reality than Kuroko. No special techniques there. But still better in my eyes.
