I tried watching digimon universe only to realise that its appmon now and the appmon want to be yokai(mon). And the protagonist is so bad his goal is to be a protagonist (im not joking). Seriously this anime is dead.

I havent watched xcros wars yet and i dont plan to but this is the first digimon i would call bad. The others are solid entertainment especially for kids. Even if i had zombie kids i wouldnt let them watch this lifeless garbage.

Slow and steady wins the race, baby.

Well, it looks like the Kyokai no Rinne anime has ended after 3 seasons.

Kind of disappointing, but it lasted longer than I thought it would. Must have been more popular in Japan than in the west, because not only have I heard no one else talk about it, I don't think Sentai ever bothered to dub it (they gave it a sub only release).

Hopefully I'll find a way to finish the series, the manga is still ongoing (I think around 400 chapters at this point), but whoever was handling the fan translation dropped it somewhere in the 210's a long time ago...

I've just finished Cardcaptor Sakura and I quite liked that one. It was something that I really wanted to watch because I vaguely recalled enjoying Cardcaptors when I was a kid, but I couldn't remember much of it. The action scenes were my favourite part of it, but it had too much romance for me.

Finished up KuroMukuro (Netflix Original) recently. I've liked a lot of what I've watched on Netflix, but I'm pretty certain this is my favorite by far.

I loved the mix of traditional Japanese culture/aesthetics and mecha (not to mention the fact that it stayed centered in Japan), I loved the central romance storyline (reminded me a lot of InuYasha, TBH, though much faster paced), and I loved Tom (probably top 5 Americans in anime, IMO).

Pretty great overall, though I didn't care too much for most of the Efidolg geoframe designs (other than the titular KuroMukuro). Liked the human made GAUS units, though.

I'm sure plenty of people will cringe at this, but I've just started watching Sword Art Online, and for the first time in my life I've realized that anime can actually be enjoyable, lol. It's still a little cringy at times like a lot of anime is (IMO), but I'm legitimately invested in the story and characters. Maybe I was wrong about 99.9% of anime being super obnoxious and not worth my time.

The only other anime I've watched is Castlevania (Enjoyed it a ton, but I barely consider that an anime. Maybe it's just me, but pretty much everything about it seems pretty Western) and the first episode of Death Note, which was fairly interesting, but not quite enough time for me to really get interested. I've heard a lot of good things about it though, so I'll give it another shot eventually.

Also, Attack on Titan seems to pretty much be the Game of Thrones/The Walking Dead of the anime world, so I'm interested in watching that as well.

Even the ending? I mean, I liked the series well enough, but I honestly can't think of a more fitting description of its ending other than "To Be Continued Never". Made the whole experience feel like a waste, IMO.

The first episode of Little Witch Academia is in my top 10 for first episodes of an anime. **** Netflix for unintentionally burying this series' chances of reaching a large audience with its stupid assumptions about how every series should be showcased on Netflix.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

I can totally understand that. I guess it just never really bothered me, for some reason.

I'll admit it's disappointing to know we'll never get to see who the Efidolg really are though.

What? That's what you were disappointed by?

They send the main protagonist in a wormhole so he can join forces with a coalition of alien races to make a final stand with the Efi Dorg, yet do we actually get to see that? NO!!! Instead, it ends on a to be continued where they spend half a decade building a ship and just...hoping they catch up to them before it's to late. Unless they make a movie or continuation, as far as I'm concerned, this series was never finished.

Ah, Assassination Classroom. Been watching it recently. Was originally not interested at first until I heard a bunch of people recommending it.

It's unexpectedly enjoyable. I'm right now at around the half way point.

Based on one episode, Recovery of an MMO Junkie is the optimistic contrast to that one arc of Welcome to the NHK.

Anyone have any anime recommendations on Netflix Canada? I finished Sword Art Online and am partway through Sword Art Online 2, and I'm planning on watching Death Note and Attack on Titan after that, but I'm interested in watching some others as well, so if you have any recommendations, let me know.

@KirbyTheVampire Have you watched Madoka Magica? Gurren Lagann? Kill La Kill? All stellar shows on the American version of Netflix. Not sure if they're on your version, though.

@Ralizah Nah, pretty much all I've seen is SAO 1 and 2, lol. I'll look into those, though. Thanks!

@kkslider5552000 I'm really digging Recovery of an MMO Junkie. It's wonderful romantic fluff. And yes, light years more optimistic than the bleak Welcome to the NHK!

I like to think Morioka Moriko is Tomoko from WataMote after years and years of intense therapy.

@KirbyTheVampire Regarding Madoka Magica: you might see the big eyes and frilly dresses and decide to dismiss it. I really urge you to give it a chance, though. It's a modern classic and one of the most consistently shocking and captivating TV shows I've ever seen. Also, it's only 12 episodes, so not a huge time commitment.

For those who haven't already, go watch Madoka Magica. I highly recommend it.
