Out of pure curiosity, how many of you like Anime? I don't mean Pokemon or whatever other stuff is being played on Saturdays now. I mean real Anime. Naruto, Evangelion, etc.

Anyone go to any conventions?

No, never been to a convention. Anime was kin of ruined for me caus eone of my friends copied me with it....like really. She took all of my drawings, analyzed the f*ck out of them and did her own. Now she's really good and I don't want to take that away from her, but she'd uber competitive so I don't talk about it so much to her.

But anyways I like to watch:
Naruto
Gundam SEED/Destiny (I know okay shutty)
Fullmetal Alchemist
Tales of Symphonia

SAILOR MOON!<3
[add more later]

Fullmetal Alchemist and InuYasha, though I've only seen a few episodes of each. Also Avatar: TLA.

Basically, if an anime is not full of all those people flying through poses which they recycle through every single episode, and the episodes are chronological, I tend to like it. Quality anime, that's it.

I can't stand the anime for Naruto, but the Manga is awesome!
I started out on Gundam, so don't feel bad. My first anime experience was Gundam Wing, and that is one of the best Gundam series ever!

I'm also really partial to:
Gasaraki
Love Hina
Kashimashi
The Place Promised In Our Early Days
Crest of the Stars
Banner of the Stars
Banner of the Stars II
Blue Seed

Umm, and I have something like 150 anime DVDs, some of which I haven't watched yet. I go to FanimeCon every year--for three years now. Amazing convention

Edit: Oh I like FMA!!! But only in the original Japanese. I can't stand the U.S. dub...it's something you pick up by going to conventions. U.S. dub is almost always crap...

150?! Are you...rich?

I never really got into Naruto. I think it's all the filler episodes that turned me away, though I've seen a couple of really good ones.

Ichigo, where's your avatar from? It keeps catching my eye.

Well I'm not actually sure WHO it is...I'd like to belive it's Colette from Tales of Symphonia, which is a game I have....and they're making an animation on it so I guess I can go and add that to my list now.

No, I just save up my money for FanimeCon every year and fork out about $800 on stuff. You should see my Gundam model collection. I spend $300 one year on just models. I am just a manga and anime junkie. Unfortunately I don't have anyone to watch it with and my girlfriend, if she were here in the states, isn't into anime. So I'm rather out of luck.

Andrew, are you into manga at all? If you like graphic novels, try the one for Naruto. I got into it through the manga, but I can't stand the animation because they just make Naruto so annoying. Then again, Naruto unfortunately follows the Dragonball Z path...lots and lots of filler without any resolution. It just goes faster in the manga .

You should try Gundam Wing. It's only 49 episodes, but it goes through SO MUCH in those episodes. It's amazing. Plus they made a movie for it that extended the ending even further. *swoons* I love it. I don't know if you'd like Gasaraki though. It doesn't have a lot of filler, but it's highly philosophical, which a lot of anime is, and very difficult to grasp for a lot of people...but it's awesome too.
Goodness, we should talk man, I've got so many awesome anime shows!

I never really got into manga, but if it's good, I'm willing to give it a shot. For entertainment, and for inspiration.

Awesome, Ichigo! I played that game also! The entire two-worlds plot was very cool, and the initial reason why I bought the game.

Well I guess it would be hard to give you an example of a really good manga :S. A lot of them follow the same general ideas...but if you aren't really into it you probably won't like any of it. I would be hard pressed to find something that not only I like, but would be so perfectly amazing that you would like it too.

But, you're lucky because a lot of manga is turned into anime . More so in Japan though. You'd be surprised how much stuff never makes it over here even though it should!
