@RR529 a standout fantasy anime in recent times is Mushi-Shi, which is set in the Japanese countryside. It's not exactly a shonen series though, and some episodes can be really slow paced or downright creepy, but if you enjoy fantasy inspired by Japanese culture then I'm sure you'll enjoy it a lot.

And the original Dragon Ball was, at least at the beginning, a loose retelling of the ancient Chinese work Journey to the West. By the time one gets to the Red Ribbon Army though, there's next to no resemblance between the two. And then Dragon Ball Z drops the premise entirely.

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)

I always found Ah My Goddess rather tame and fairly normal for an anime, which is why I liked it. And it reminds you of a '90s series because it's based on an old Manga.

@RR529

BTW, have you seen any of the Macross series? If so, I suggest seeing if you can find Macross: Do You Remember Love? - a Movie retelling of the original series. It makes a lot of changes to the story that I don't like, but the action and animation are very impressive.

I just started watching Toradora! today, i've only just finished the second episode. It's pretty interesting, but it feels like it's moving too fast.

Ya, now I've seen 3 episodes of Bleach...

Okay, so Fairy Tail does indeed get a lot better around the point I was told, but I have to wonder how long it'll hold that level of quality. Sounds like it gets boring around 130 or so, which is a good amount of time, but still only half the show. I also hear the anime is better than the manga, which means even if I made it to the end, I'd have to switch to a lesser media.

Oh my word, I stopped watching FMA Brotherhood A long time ago, and I thought I was at least at episode 20. I'm only at 15!
I need to start watching it again x3.

@Konata
It doesn't sound like you would based on your tastes, but have you ever watched Bleach?

@Rocko52 I never really wanted too, I've kinda stayed away from the really popular anime like Bleach, Naruto and One Piece.
I just never had an interest in them.

@Konata
That's fine. I mean, I really don't think I'll ever watch Naruto. Bleach and One Piece have interested me, but I've never taken the time, until a few days ago when I started Bleach.

this is likely for the best unless you hate having a life

seriously, just between Naruto, One Piece and of course Detective Conan, I've spent an embarassing amount of time.

One Piece alone took over my life for half a year, and I haven't even caught up with it yet.

That's what worries me. If I start now, will I ever stop?

I'm conflicted about the 18th episode of Magi. On one hand, it ruined what looked like an interesting season-long story arc and really screwed with characters/the tone of the series. On the other hand, this happened;
