What are you watching?

I'm gonna try again.

Is it just me, or is Firefly very similar to Bebop/Trigun?

As of right now I'm watching Elfen lied once again, the last time I watched it which was probably was two years ago, pretty dark but I enjoyed it.

A few people on the interwebs have a pet theory that Joss Whedon's a closet anime fan ;) Kinda like how Kayne West is a (not at all) closeted anime fan

Cowboy Bebop has way more going for it than just the space outlaw angle though, and Firefly is good in its own ways too. I feel that Firefly is more focused on its own characters, while Bebop is all about the worlds in the future and the culture of each. That's what I got from watching them anyway. I haven't seen Trigun, but I'd assume that it has a character of its own too.

what i got from Cowboy Bebop is that it wants to be the greatest anime ever by not being anime

I'd probably respect this more if wasn't for the commercial break moments having text congratulating itself for being revolutionary. No one should do that ever.

Bebop seriously boasts about itself while you're watching it?

Bwahahaha, iirc it had "The work which shall transcend genres will be called Cowboy Bebop" or something in one of the ad breaks. I didn't see it trying to be the greatest anime ever, but it did self-boast a great deal.

EDIT: Maybe the reason why I wasn't ticked off by it was because it popped up in an episode after I'd made the conclusion that it does do quite a bit of genre bending. In hindsight though, I agree with KKslider, nobody should do that ever

Geeze. You know, I'm starting the think I'm just gonna be watching Bleach and One Piece as constants, with only 1-2 other short shows being watched at the same time. FMA B is on hold because...it can wait. I'm gonna wrap up Fruits Basket and Lucky Star, finish Gargantia, and keep following Attack on Titan. Since it won't be too long before three of those shows are out of the way, I guess I'll start from there with 1-2 new one(s).

I hate attack on titan being a monthly manga. iT was awesome when I had 40 chapters to get caught up on, but now it seems like its dragging purposely.

WAT!

Also, based on a discussion on the last page, it seems like I'm still the only person here who actually likes InuYasha, lol.

Though as others have said, I do feel that Inuyasha was too repetitive. I mean, I like repetitive shows to a degree - I watch super Robot and Magical girl shows from time to time, and it's rare that it gets more repetitive than those, yet I still couldn't stick with Inuyasha. So...props to you for being able to stick with and enjoy it for what it is.

I've heard people talking about it, but it looks like it suffers from the same thing that Kids on the Slope suffered from (everyone assuming that it's a BL series) except far worse. So far everything I've seen is swarming with fangirls talking about the attractive main characters, so I'll probably hold off unless it turns out that the series has a great dramatic plot or something :p

I'm gonna be honest here: I don't like Cowboy Bebop. It's too seriously cheesy for its own good, the characters can be downright flat at times, if your main character isn't invested, neither am I (unlike FireFly and Trigun, where Mal and Vash are very dynamic and interesting), and the ending suffers from wha I've dubbed the "Evangelion Disease": when everything goes wrong and you have nothing to blame but the character'a own bottomless stupidity (seriously Eva: weapons of mass destruction, and someone decides "hey, let's give them to emotionally troubled teens!")

Eh, people can like what they want to.
Frankly, I quite like Eva and Cowboy Bebop. Whether you like it or not, the former changed the anime landscape, and Bebop is often accredited as a genre unto itself (a statement that I feel is justified). They're both must watches.

Although, I am very surprised that someone could dislike Cowboy Bebop. You've seen all of it, right? I thought Spike and the rest of the cast was quite invested in what was going on, and there was a lot to the story that made the characters much deeper, be it thier pasts or the existentialist take the makers used as the means to let the characters address their respective pasts. Then there's the little things; you know, Spike saying Faye sang off key, the eating of the cigarette, the way that the music always fits the scene, the list goes on. For a show that is very much style-over-substance, I found it to have better substance than 90% of what's out there.
Also, it is the gateway anime.
