I watched the first episode of Angel Beat subbed, I'm gonna watch the rest dubbed though. I also watched the first 9 episodes of Control. It was pretty intresting, a tad confusing, but I like it. Quite the unique plot.

I haven't watched anything or been up to date with anything in a while

And it's almost time for the yearly Honey and Clover marathon! subtle plug, EVERYONE GO WATCH IT! It's an excellent character study that's easy to relate to, and yet it's not too cerebral and has a lot of great comedy too!

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)

whats the anime basically about?

It's about five students at an art college, who are really poor and don't know what to do with their lives. It's a very slice-of-life kind of thing though, and it's quite slow paced. There are also a few romance arcs, I guess.

I finished Control. I liked it, but it the ending felt incomplete and too confusing.
Edit: I just checked to see if there was something after the credits and there was. It's a bit better now, kind of sad though. A little disappointing.

Finished reading Change 123 today. It relied on the fan service a bit too much, but the martial arts action was great, the premise was unique, and it could be pretty funny at times (my favorite moment was the DBZ nod in an early chapter).

I'd say the first and final major arcs were the best (I'll call them the "Zero" & "Kyoto" arcs, respectively), while the second & third ones were the worst.

The second arc ("Gadam" arc) wasn't terrible, but the main characters kind of got sidelined for a couple of new ones (who admittedly, helped them out in key moments later on).

The third arc ("Okinawa" arc) was just terrible, though. It revolved around them getting into a fight with a bunch of Marines, because the Marines are supposedly nothing but a delinquent group of bloodthirsty thugs looking to terrorize & womanize (rolls eyes)...

Read the new Bleach chapter today!

Most time was spent getting acquainted to the various personalities of the Stern Ritter, as they were bickering, but there was a surprise or two thrown in, such as the shocking revelation of the main villain's second in command, and eventual successor.

Hey I'm looking for some recommendations for a new anime to watch, I would appreciate if you guys could help. I like shows that tend to mix action with comedy (Soul Eater and Gurren Lagaan being my 2 favorites of this category) or something with action, comedy and drama along the lines of Angel Beats. I would appreciate a recommendation or two.

is rly good

I'd recommend Rurouni Kenshin, Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, Tenchi Universe, and One Piece (I haven't seen much of this last one yet, but I know someone's going to bring it up eventually, so I figure it might as well be me).

I finshed Angel Beats. I cried at the very end, but then I felt dumb for crying. Aside from the touching moment at the end though, it really wasn't that sad of anime, it was bit sadder than usual maybe, but at the very end of everything, it wasn't too sad. Don't me wrong, I thought it was a pretty good anime. It wasn't very tragic for a tradegy though, but I'm not complaining about that.

Full Metal Panic is pretty good. It has a nice blend of action and comedy, with some drama to boot. It's about a guy who was raised in the military and has to juggle his military and high school lives. It does feel a bit generic at times, and sometimes you'll wish it would focus just on one aspect it has, rather than have a bunch at once. However, its second season (Fumofu) is strictly comedy, while its third season (Second Raid) is all action and drama. The thing is, by splitting up its aspects, it becomes a substantially better show in its second and third seasons.

My advice would be to watch Fumofu. It's one of those comedies that is a part of nearly every anime fan's favorite comedy list.

Another awesome show you could watch is Baccano!, if you can stomach its intense violence. It's a story about immortal gangsters, and is somehow able to have dozens of characters, juggle between different periods in time (meaning it's told out of order), and have multiple genres within itself, and do so incredibly well. You'll be confused at first (actually, for a while) but you'll be happy you watched it if you stick with it. Also, dub over sub for this one. The dub for Baccano! is one of the best I've ever heard.

Blue Exorcist sounds right up your alley, and, like RR529 mentioned, I wouldn't hesitate to try One Piece either.

Haven't seen it in this thread, but I would recommend Arata the Legend, it's basically a shonen Action-Adventure type anime. I noticed a lot of people complained about how wishy-washy the main character is, but I think they were being pretty unfair, it's a great show with good characters. It's almost finished now, the 12th and final episode airs early next week.

Rurouni Kenshin or Full Metal Alchemist

Thanks for all the suggestions! I think I am going to try One Piece, as friends have tried to get me to watch it in the past. Full Metal Panic will probably be watched sometime soon as well. Once again, thanks!

I cried multiple times throughout that.
