Since I finished Angel beats, I need something else to watch. I haven't seen anything I really wanna watch... Any ideas?

I like comedy/drama/romance/science fiction stuff.

have you seen Steins;Gate. Because it has ALL of that in some way or another.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

I started to, but I guess I have no brain because I couldn't get past the first episode because of how confused I got.

Just started watching Hunter X Hunter again. Now on Episode 20. I really gotta stop forgetting this show exists, I always enjoy it, even if it's a helluva lot slower than a lot of Shounen shows. It's one of the few that can work that kind of pace right so it still remains interesting. I'll stopping at 21, though. Gotta wait until I finish that One Piece arc I've been slogging through since the beginning of December.

Well, Crunchyroll just licensed Amnesia, Senyu., and Chihayafura 2. With Amnesia, along with The Unlimited, both of the shows I was really hoping to see, plus the unexpected surprise of Cuticle Detective Ibara, and the 5 shows (Mouya, Encouragement to Climb, Senyu., Chihayafura, and Roman) I was hoping to try out if they got licensed, will all be on Crunchyroll this season. While I only have high hopes for Ibara, there's a chance this season could be pretty packed for me.

Oh yeah, here's the link, just in case anyone wanted it: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-787629/new-winter-title...

@Konata

You seen Tenchi Muyo yet? Robotics;Notes might also be worth a look. It's a bit like Stein's;Gate, though, but not a whole lot.

I had another suggestion, but now I can't quite grasp what it was...

EDIT: Was I gonna recommend Strike Witches? Not sure why I would...

I'd go for Eden of the East, Clannad and BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad! my plan to make everyone watch BECK begins hahaha

Also, I should really watch Angel Beats! soon. I saw the first episode at a friend's house while it was super recent (I think a day or two after it was available) and then I just never kept up :/

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)

Huh. That's odd since the only things confusing are the lecture near the beginning and stuff that's explained later. I'd give it another chance because it is just fantastic and is likely the closest series to something Haruhi-like i've seen.

What anime series do you think would make for a good turn based JRPG?

I'd say InuYasha. Battles tend to focus on the entire group (unlike some series, like Bleach or DBZ, which tend to focus on one on one fights), and the series features a small band of people travelling around the land (so it would fit the mold easily).

Although (I'm not too far into it yet, so I can't fully comment), it appears that teamwork is going to be a key component in Naruto as well, so it could be a nice candidate as well.

Pokem- waaaiiit...

I can't think of any series which should become a JRPG, to be honest. I think the two tend to be very separate, and most of the attempts to make crossovers and adaptations haven't ended too well. I will, however, pay good money to play an MMORPG set in the universe of Cowboy Bebop. Especially if a real player can get a bounty on their head for other players if they cause too much collateral damage, or prey on the weak.. aww I get excited just thinking of the concept haha. DragonballZ would also make an incredible MOBA; I dunno why they keep settling on more fighting games (not that I'm calling them bad)

Talking about RPG's though, I found Zoids Legacy for the GBA to be a pretty fun game, although only because I had watched a bit of the anime while I was a kid. That game was so dripping with fanservice, in a good way - you had access to over a hundred Zoids from the universe, and could customise their appearance, their equipment, and make a party of six using pilots also from the anime who were also customisable... augh

Naruto has also been adapted into billions of different games. The series the west most often gets is Ninja Clash, which is a bit of a mix between RPG and 1v1 Fighting. There have also been platformers, turn based rpg's, SRPG's, puzzle games.. the franchise is utterly massive.

Inuyasha ended up making a terrible RPG. Trust me on that...

Magic Knight Rayearth is practically JRPG: The Anime, and unsurprisingly, it's had some pretty good JRPG adaptions.

Honestly, while not necessarily a JRPG, I think at least the world of Naruto would make for a very exciting epic adventure for a video game. Like a mission heavy game or something. Honestly if Kishimoto wants to continue to do anything with the series after the manga ends, I'd love to see him write some sort of series in the same world with new characters.

Am I wrong in assuming that you never get to see much of Naruto's world (not counting the movies)?

I'm pretty sure outside of one arc, 99% of Naruto is either
1. The Leaf Village
2. another village in the same country as the Leaf Village
3. a Forest
4. Cliffs or other rocky areas
5. unnamed non-ninja town

I see. I'm a tad disappointed to hear that. I prefer action-adventures where you actually get to see lots of different places, but it seems Naruto is more straight action. That might actually be the biggest issue I had with Naruto back when I was watching, and I didn't even realize it. Oh well, it's not like I'm short on Action-Adventures, anyways.

I started watching Ouran High School Host Club, on the Funimation website.

I watched part of the first episode before I was really into anime, and I really didn't like it. But I decided to give it another shot, and it is hilarious. I really like it.

My Hanabusa Aido form Vampire Knight plush came in yesterday. He's soo adroable. It's one of the first Animes I've ever watched. Never finished it, but I'm planning too. I think I stopped because I hated Yuki.

I watched some when I wasn't into anime either. I thought it was boring and a little odd at the time. I've yet to go back to it. I have a feeling I'd appreciate it more now, though.

Yeah, I didn't like Accel World from the first episode. I know I'd probably have to see more of both shows to say this, but I'm surprised that was the novel that won the author a prize and not Sword Art Online.

I liked what I saw of Ouran but I'll probably read the manga instead since it is a far more complete series apparently (I'd say because people said the manga was better but people say that about EVERY OTHER ANIME EVER MADE).

After you get past the first episode

Spoiler
After they find out she's a girl at the end of the first episode.
End of Spoiler

It gets so hilarious and it's one of the funniest Anime I have ever seen.
The anime style kinda turned me off when I started the first time, but I think it's pretty awesome now.
(Later I'm gonna spout out more about what I love about it, to let everyone know they have to see it or I will pull their hair out.)
