20. Haven't been to Crunchyroll in a while tbh, I mostly end up going somewhere along the lines of Animefreak to watch any shows nowadays if at all.

Well Clannad's starting to become rather interesting now lol.

LOGH is literally the only anime that anybody needs to watch and is actually good. Literally.

Everything else is objectively crap. Everything.

It's Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Kevin is playing the elitist that show fandom is plagued with. I'm into the third season of it and it's good but not great. Same with Monster and NGE, all of these critics darlings are not totally doing it for me.

Utena on the other hand.

Hnnnn? Should I call myself an "occasional anime watcher" if not a fan? I've watched some anime that aren't on my rarely updated MAL but I don't even think then it'll add up to thirty. Even then there are those I watched but only casually/never completed.

Last time I checked I was approaching 200 anime/manga days. I'm quite the cool guy.

I think it's fine enough to call yourself a fan of those individual series. It's like saying you're a fan of Sci-fi after watching only the Dr. Who reboot, or a gamer for just playing Halo. It requires a bit more immersion than just that to be a general fan. Especially with anime since Japan churns those out at a rate close to like a hundred new series of anime in a year. There's absolutely nothing wrong with liking what you like though. If you're not a fan of a general genre or medium, that just probably means that you are a really really good fan in your fandom.

Also I'm not acting I'm pretty sure that LOGH being the only good anime ever is an established fact?

Oh, I thought you were trollan. It's not, it's not realistic, the characters are hardly deep, the pacing could be a hell of a lot better and one of the main characters became a hero for using the trojan horse. The first 50 episodes consist of the two main characters rising up the ranks by beating canon fodder, stupid people and rich stupid people, I mean it's surprising they haven't blown them selves up prior to this. I could say some more stuff about one of the major events 26 episodes in but spoilers.

Tactical stuff....Light Yagami made more realistic plays than some of the stuff that's been going on. "I know....lets put all our fire on that one ship it will make them break form....what's this they wiped out our entire flank? how did that happen". Few episodes later......"let's engage the enemy RIGHT NEXT TO THIS BLACK HOLE"...he lost a lot of men that day.

Saying that it is still better than 70% of stuff I've seen.

Edit - I'm a dude.

Well. I don't remember the last time I actually said I was a fan of anime. Lately I think I say more along the lines of 'i like it but I don't watch it too often'. If I said I was a fan it was probably a long time ago before I "changed". I do see where you're coming from with that though Kevin. It makes sense and makes me glad that I don't (think I) use the word 'fan' often.

That said I don't even know what that image was/said since I'm on my phone sooo.

Yeah, wasn't calling out anybody in this thread in particular, but since people were talking about not watching anime and this is a pretty anime thread, I thought I'd say something in case others do think like that.

There is no image. That's just my laziness. :I

As long as we all agree that Guilty Crown is the greatest anime of all time.

The hat count isn't anywhere near where it should be.

Haha. Yeah. Thats probably part of the reason why I don't post here as often anymore! Another reason being the fact that I've been doing more things offline buuut that's besides the point. When the topic is anime I usually say nothing or something random no one gives two cents about half the time.

That would explain why I can see others' pictures aha.

Sorry. Detective Conan has my vote. Considering other than Symphonia's OVA it's the only anime I bother watching every now and then these days.

Because it has so many episodes I will start it one day, I like to have a show with hundreds of episodes on the go for no apparent reason.

GC has the best /a/ threads.

Three hours of typing and an incredible roleplay post down the drain.
I hate computers.
I hate my luck.
I hate life.
I'm angry.
Hear me Rawr.

A burdened heart sinks into the ground
A veil falls away without a sound
Not day nor night, wrong nor right
For truth and peace you fight
Sing with me a song of silence and blood
The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
Can no one hear my cry

Embrace the dark you call a home,
Gaze upon an empty, white throne
A legacy of lies,
A familiar disguise
Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
Lost in thoughts all alone
In the white light, a hand reaches through
A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
Waking dreams fade away,
Embrace the brand-new day
Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
The light scatters to the sky above
Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
Lost in thoughts all alone


In endless dreams, countless realms collide
Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
But all dreams come to an end,
Just whispers on the wind
Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
Endless dawn came but not without a price,
Lost in the waves there glimmers, a pale blue stone.
I think of you, all alone

Thank you for the "Hi" Lapras. Also, I like your Avatar and Sig. :D

And Nakuzami, I'm sorry to hear that. That sounds awful! I've had that happen to me before, but not on something I worked on for that long.

Never watched The Artist. Heard it was okay, but the people who decide the Best Picture probably can appreciate it more than I can. :U

Also, Pixar didn't win best animated picture. The sky is falling. Oh wait, Cars 2. Yeah, nvm.
