awww dude I finished the anime a while ago, but for the people who haven't, spoiler tags should really be put into use.

Btw I loved GL sooo much! One of my favorite anime! I heard Kill La Kill was similair in the over the topness because the creators of GL made KlK. Should I be watching this... Is it as good as the hype says it is?

Agree with these 5 things but it's...
1) Believing
2) Drills
3) Piercing (drills obviously, you know?)
4) Universe
5) Boota Glasses
Well, CC is nearly constantly eating pizza. And all the AMVs in the vein of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzMctd8bb20 . I'd link the original but the sound has vanished from that for some reason that does not appear to be a copyright claim.

Those were just my personal first five things that came to mind.

@Apollo - Kill la Kill is its own piece of work. Do not go into it expecting anything and or for it to "overcome" TTGL and you'll have an awesome time. It is a really, really fun ride. That's all.

Although Mankanshoku Mako is life.

Yesss, I should've put that Kamina post before in spoilers, oops. Gonna do that. Sometimes I forget that not everyone watched and finished Gurren Lagann five years ago. XD;

That's...sad. Kamina's death actually marks the point for a lot of people from where the series transitions from being a decent to a good series. :/

I have a friend who saw FMAB and loved it to death. But now refuses to watch anything else because "I've already seen the best and anything else will pale in comparison". How silly.

I saw the first episode of Kill la Kill and well... I went in thinking I would be getting some casual-ish anime but jesus it's dumb? if that's a good word, I love it because it isn't serious all the time like one third of the time things get serious. I really like it... But Gundam Build Fighters is the best anime from last year...

You should seriously persuade that friend somehow... that situation became a huge turning point for the direction of the series =)
Even though I gotta say I did not like the political arc of the second half of TTGL...

Agreed... but it's still sad that you have to make such an radical thing to catapult a series into stardom.

The series got better after that point because

Spoiler:
Simon started to man up and actually be useful. It was a plot device and a catalyst in Simon's character development, not a means to get people talking about the show.

Even if it didn't trigger Simon's development him dying would have still improved the show. Never liked him.

^ yeah, Kamina was a well liked character. Quite a lot of people like him. I was mostly indifferent, tbh. :p I used to like him a lot earlier. Now, not so much.

Either way, his departure was a good plot device.

On a side note, anyone seen any MUST watch anime from 2013? Or anime of 2014? I'm sorta looking for short ones.

I went through that after watching the end to Code Geass in 2008! Erghh, there are still a handful of anime that can certainly rip out your heart. Kill la Kill, hah, try it out yourself and see if you like it or not!

For 2014, the other series I'm following Space Dandy (Unknown episodes) and Noragami (12 episodes). For 2013, I liked Kyoukai no Kanata (12).

I only watch anime that engages me, so by default they're all pretty cool to me. Space Dandy is bizarre and funny while the other two are dark supernatural. The only one I technically finished, Kyoukai, is worth watching. I can't say if any currently airing episodes are a MUST see if I don't know how they end :P! One would very likely have to watch a full series to know if it's a splendid work of art or not.

Does that help ya, onii-chan <.>?

I second the Kyoukai recommendation :D It was a great series majority of the way through, but I felt the ending could have been better...Just my opinion though Another one from the Fall 2013 season would be Outbreak Company if you're looking for comedy with multiple anime references.

Initially, I didn't understand the ending, but I read some interpretations that just about blew my mind. So that's why I think it's stellar, anyway.

Ooh, Outbreak Company is 12 episodes. I'll check it out.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone watch Nobunaga the Fool and know where the subbed version of episode 7 is...? It should have been out earlier today, but still not seeing it D:

Crunchyroll's going to have it up soon I think.

Haven't watched that series. I'm currently watching Kill La Kill. Also watching Dirty Pair Flash.

Uchouten Kazoku
Gin no Saji
Nagi no Asukara

Senki Zesshou Symphogear - 2nd series is a massive improvement over the first which was still pretty fun

Has anyone seen Psycho Pass?

I'm a big Gen Urobuchi fan and love most the shows he's written. I was wondering if Psycho Pass was any good or not because from what i've heard it has mostly mixed reviews.

Definitely would recommend watching it. I thought it would be a series that consisted mostly of positive reviews so it's surprising to hear it's been mixed \: But if you like a good series with a solid story and plot with psychological aspects, watch it! Psycho-Pass makes you think about humanity.

Nobunaga the Fool - Nope, I haven't started this one, but I want to when time permits.

Psycho Pass - Yes! I was legitimately empty-feeling when it was all over. It had great drama and sci-fi action, but it was thought-provoking and never dull. The main girl gets some hate, but she is designed to be painfully average, in a way. She has to work with criminals to do her job. A second season is underway, so I'm game.

I need to watch Psycho Pass. Never gave it much though, what with Kuroko, Noragami, Kill la Kill, Pandora Hearts, and Kagerou Project already taking up my free time. xD; Though, even a coworker of mine asked me yesterday if I had ever heard of it. I think this might be the point where I give in and watch it.

Second the Nagi no Asukara rec but... you better wait for it to be complete... week waiting for each episode is a torture.

As for Psycho Pass. Imo after Madoka (nothing can beat this), Urobuchi's best work. Surely a must-watch.
I was following it when it was airing and those 2 weeks of break were too damn hard to survive.

I'll give Noragami and Kyoukai no Kanata a shot, I guess. Uchouten and Gin no Saji along with Kyousougiga were already on my list, though. All seem like cool shows. The latter three were recommended by my close friends. :D And yes, that did help, thanks, onee-sama! <3;

I haven't seen anything else apart from Psycho Pass, Madoka and Fate Zero from Urobuchi. Psycho Pass & Fate Zero were both better than Madoka in my eyes.
