For a while I hadn't been watching as much anime as I would have liked as there was no sound on my laptop and the desktop computer wasn't always free but I got a new laptop for Christmas so I can watch more anime now! :D Because of that I haven't made much progress in a lot of the series I'm watching so I still haven't finished the original series of Naruto despite saying I almost had ages ago.

Anyway, I'm on the future arc of Reborn and some of the episodes I've recently seen of that arc aren't as good as good the earlier episodes of that arc because there are too many situations going on at once so you keep going back and forth between multiple scenes. This would be okay if there weren't so many of them and it leads to some of the ongoing events getting more progress than others in some episodes. The overly long recaps at the start of each episode don't help either. The last episode I saw did have a bit of Deus ex machina but it was probably just a one off. The actual content of the episodes is still awesome, I just wish there wasn't so much going on in each episode so that there is such little progress with some scenes. There was also a lovely, heartwarming Tsuna x Gokudera scene in an episode I recently saw. Those two are about as close as you can get to being a canon couple without actually being one. Besides, Tsuna's canon love interest, Kyoko is pretty shallow anyway.

I previously finished Sword Art Online. I really enjoyed it but, season two took a turn for the worse in my opinion. Still, I recommend this Anime to any of you who may have enjoyed the .hack// series or Mirai Nikki (TV).

Okay, I confess; I probably should have waited until after watching episode 25 of SAO before declaring my disappointment of the series. The first four minutes episode 25 are GLORIOUS, and I mean that with most sincerity. My overall opinion of the show hasn't changed and I disagree with the direction that the rest of the ending took, but if the adaptation team had to take the direction they chose for the Alfheim arc to drive those four minutes home I do slightly forgive them.

I think that the Internet Browser on Wii U is a far improvement of the Browser on the original Wii.

Anyway, I just got into Fairy Tail recently, i'm upto episode 11, and I gotta say, why does Lucy sometimes remind me of Usopp?

because the series is apparently a blatant One Piece ripoff? That's what everyone says anyway.

I'm pretty sure the two creators actually know each other and studied together or something like that. That's why it's so similar.

Is that actually any good? That was, like, the last Super Robot show released in the last two years.

I don't agree with the .hack association. Sword Art Online really uses its premise and has a much bigger scope, it focuses more on the players and the world and how the players survive (or don't survive). .Hack//SIGN at least doesn't really focus on those aspects, instead having a smaller scope and greater focus on characters and their personal issues. There's very little action in .Hack//SIGN, for instance. I'd also say .Hack//SIGN is a classier show, if only because it's much more focused on presenting its themes, such as depression and escapism, admittedly even at the cost of proper storytelling at times. Honestly, I don't think the two are very comparable.

I haven't seen Mirai Nikki, but from the premise, it does sound a little closer to Sword Art Online than .hack//SIGN at least. However, I will say that it sounds like a very sick and twisted show...I doubt I'll ever watch it, despite having a catchy opening song.

'Forcing' people to watch something is rarely a good idea. Just FYI. Usually backfires.

Any chance you've seen Tenchi Muyo (any series) or perhaps even Martian Successor Nadesico?
Or Bombshells From The Sky, Negima?!, Infinite Stratos, Ichigo 100% (Strawberry 100%), or Tears to Tiara?
Or He is My Master, Love Hina, or Rosaio + Vampire?

And has anyone else here seen Irresponsible Captain Tylor? It's one of the best anime comedies I've seen, with enough story to keep me going, and a lot of humor I actually found funny (though still some cringe-worthy idiocy to keep it from being perfect). 'Course, I also liked the characters, especially Tylor. I couldn't tell if that guy was a complete idiot or a total genius. Loved it.

yup i watched love hina hard to get into at first hated that one character so bad -_- but it was alright rosario vap was nice least story wise and tenchi muyo was ok didnt know there were different versions o.O the one i saw didnt seem to have a ending to it :(

That's the original Tenchi Muyo. Try Tenchi Universe, it's ever better, and has an ending. That said, Our tastes don't match at all, so take that with a grain of salt. Personally, I thought Love Hina and Rosario + Vampire were terrible. I couldn't stand more than 5 minutes of them. In fact, something tells me you'd be more likely to enjoy He Is My Master, another show I can't stand. :P

I thought all the middle shows were either okay, or bad but not terrible. Might be worth a look. Not sure if I can recommend Nadesico. It's a lot like Tenchi Muyo, the first one.

Back when I was in high school, my teacher once thought it would be a good idea to let impressionable 12 year olds watch Love Hina. I think it put some people in my class off anime for a long time :/

Love Hina was a silly show.

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

but so whats difference between the tenchi muyo animes?

Ichigo is Strawberry in Japanese so it's just the translated title.
I watched an episode of Strawberry 100%. Didn't really like it.

Don't finish it. I read the manga which was good except the ending pretty much ruined the whole thing. Left me with a bad taste in my mouth for the whole day. It sucked >:[

Perhaps. Bombshells and Tears to Tiara were the ones I thought were okay, and those were the ones from the middle list you left off. :P But oh well, you seem to know what you like at least.

As for Tenchi, most of them are very different from eachother. Universe is most similar to the original, but it's story plays out very differently, the characters act a little differently, it's longer, more happens, and it has a very different ending. I know I like Universe the most, and a lot of people seem to enjoy it the most as well. It's also the most balanced with the series' various themes, IMO.

There's also Tenchi in Tokyo, which is even more different. It's more of a slapstick comedy - there's less character development and story, and far more humor. Some say the humor is more vapid, but I liked it. Also remember loving the ending, too. More people dislike this one, but I think you might want to check it out at least. If the humor's to your taste, you'll probably enjoy it more than others.
