Do you like character centered stories?

I do like character centered shows - in fact, you may notice that that's what makes up most of my top 30. However, I like lots of different types of stories, so long as it works. In Legend of the Galactic Heroes, for instance, the characters, while interesting, aren't quite the focus of the show. The cast is large, and most seem to get an equal amount of screen time, IIRC. It's more focused on its elaborite plot, how all the characters relate to eachother, and the highly tactical combat. I absolutely loved it because of those aspects, and I know many consider it a great classic that never made it to our shores.

Also, you may notice that lots of anime are character-focused. It's probably just easier to do with a purely visual medium, and I also think a lot of people prefer more character-driven stories, anyways.

Soul Eater - I still don't know if this was completely stupid, or incredibly hilarious (probably both).

Congratulations, you have now met my favoritest character of all time.

Apparently, there was a generally positive Japanese reaction to the Tiger & Bunny English Dub: http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/04/20/japanese-fan...

I'm sure they cherry-picked the comments, of course, since they were pretty much all positive, but still, it's nice to see good comments from them, especially since there are just as many haters and trolls over there as there are around here (ever been to 2Ch? It's pretty much 4Chan in Japanese...).

@CanisWolfred I can't remember if you'd said if you had seen The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya or not and that's a fantastic character driven anime. If you have, what's your opinion on it? Bakuman is a great character driven anime too.

I did not watch Haruhi. And I probably never will. It just never interested me. Maybe someday I might change my mind, it does look like a good show, at least, just not something has to appeal to my tastes yet.

Bakuman Is definitely something I'd like to give a try someday, though. The only problem is its realistic setting and story, which is something that I'm not always into. If I ever get the urge for something like that, though, I'll be sure to give it a watch.

Kyoto Animation has something new in the works, btw. I'm hoping it's more Full Metal Panic...

as long as it can continue the momentum from that last season, I completely agree.

Though Haruhi takes priority for me.

As long they don't pull another Endless Eight stunt (I do admire the ambition behind it [and as Majora's Mask and Groundhog Day can attest, I love very similar premises when executed properly] - but that was a lot of time, money and effort for something that could've been conveyed just as effectively, if not moreso, in a 2-3 episode arc), and I don't believe there's any reason to think that they would, I'll gladly consume as much Haruhi as they'll let me.

Actually, on second thought, they could even force an Endless Eight-type slog on us again, if that's the price we have to pay; I'd just watch the first and last episodes of the arc this time. Just give me more Haruhi.

Watch Brotherhood next. That's what I'm doing, and it's different enough to warrant a watch. Not to mention it's excellent.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

@rocko52 - Why don't you watch one of these:

Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex
Squid Girl
Soul Eater
Code Geass
Gurren Lagann
Mobile Suit Gundam
Sgt. Frog

They were on your watch list less than 2 weeks ago.

Decided to rewatch Full Metal Panic!, and saw the first 3 episodes in a row, when I've been having trouble watching more than one episode a day. I wasn't a big fan of this show before, and technically speaking, my opinion of it hasn't changed - The comedy isn't that funny, the drama could be better, the relationships feel incredibly forced and unnatural, and the main character is a freakin' robot, yet the rest of the cast is likeable. Yet I'm enjoying it a lot more this time around. Maybe it's because I know what I'm getting into? Either way, I'll definitely be watching more soon.

Read a few more chapters of Gunsmith Cats! Still really enjoying it.

The action is great (Rally is almost like a female Spike). The art style is clean cut and detailed, has a "fun" vibe, and avoids being gritty. The story isn't incredibly deep (although I'm still early on), but it's interesting nonetheless, and the charcters seem likeable so far.

I just tried the first episode...it was kinda meh. The two insurance girls were kinda annoying, the action weren't all that good, there really was no humor or drama, the only guy I really liked was the bounty hunter. Vash was also a disappointment, cause it looked like he was gonna be some cowboy badass, but then he turns out to be a goofy guy with a high-pitched voice and a gun for show. It really didn't leave a good impression on me.

Well I'm happy to say I enjoyed the second episode of Trigun much more.
