Sigh You need to watch a show to pass judgment, don't you?

Yes and no. You need to watch it to know the level of quality. But it's pretty easy to tell what will and won't interest you in the first place. I find that with Death Note, most people seem to love it right from the very premise. It's about a man given the power to kill anyone he wants by writing their name in a book, his slow decent into megalomania as he he becomes consumed with power, and the cat and mouse chase between two geniuses as they try to force eachother into the open so they can finally take the other down. If that doesn't already sound cool to you, I find it hard to believe you'd come to enjoy it if you did watch it.

I guess I'm a bit different then, cause I really had close to no idea what is was about when I started it, didn't know there was gonna be an L vs Light dynamic and all that, cause I just was trying out 1st eps of random anime, and this one caught me.

That's why I don't wanna watch it, the story doesn't interest me x3.

Anime with killing people as the main thing doesn't interest me :3.

I had started rereading Dragon Ball just because I have nothing better to read, but they have some of the chapters mixed up, so I probably won't be continuing...

It's more focused on the Cat & Mouse game, to be fair, and most of the deaths are by heart attack, but I still doubt you'd find it that interesting. It's more or less all drama with little light-heartedness to it.

^ I'd have to agree. The killing is more of a plot element. It's really just a neat twisting and turning psychological thriller/drama.

How do you all ever find the time to watch so much anime?

I find it hard to squeeze more than 2 episodes daily, although I've been doing that with FMA.

@Canis You mean the Wind song? Man, that was a great ending theme. I also liked a lot of the character leitmotifs from Naruto, especially Shikimaru's and Kakashi's.

Also while we're talking about ED's, does anyone else skip them often? I find myself watching the OP all the time, but I skip the ED unless it's really plot-important important or enjoyable.

@Rocko I started a 2-episodes-a-day rule in my final year of high school, so I wouldn't go crazy from the sleep deprivation. Some shows have really terrible pacing and will cliffhanger you for 10+ episodes in a row though D:

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)

You're right, the character themes are pretty good, especially Shikamaru's.

Kinda, especially if I'm really into a show.
