Finished up Little Busters! I see why everyone says Refrain is some of Key's best work. It's easily one of the most cohesive stories that they've written and it hits you in lots of unexpected ways. I actually prefer Clannad though, since the familial and coming of age aspects in Tomoya's story moved me a lot more. I do feel that JC Staff could have done a better job with the adaptation, but again transitioning between game and anime is hard (and there were many scenes where I thought "this would have been so awesome in Visual Novel form!").

I then started watching Kill la Kill! I didn't find it that insane, which probably says more about how deeply I fell into the anime hole than how crazy the show itself is. I kept making parallels with other shows rather than losing my mind at how crazy it was. I don't know if I'll continue though, I want to watch Beyond the Boundary too, as well as Nagi no Asukara. And Golden Time and Samurai Flamenco. There's too much stuff that I'm following D:

@Jollykarp You should continue Kill la Kill! It only gets better!

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?

Am I the only one who didn't like Cowboy Bebop THAT much? Don't get me wrong, some episodes were fantastic, but I found myself bored on a good chunk of them. Maybe episodic anime just don't it for me.

But it's still good, yes? It's like Ocarina of Time of the anime world - not everyone thinks it's the best thing ever, but everyone agrees its at least "Good" or better. I've never seen anyone actively dislike it, no matter how much some people tried. Considering anime fans are some of the most inconsistant bunch there is, that's practically a miracle in and of itself.

Oh definitely yes. I can't deny its quality. The animation and setting is brilliant. I'd even say it's one of the few objectively good anime. I just personally didn't love it THAT muxh. I'd give it a solid 7.

Bebop is considered the best gateway anime...apparently. Azumanga Daioh arguably too.

Maybe FMA or...I dunno. Tiger & Bunny might work, since it's basically just an anime version of a western superhero series.

Trigun's a good one, too. I recommend Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, though. It's very accessible for non-Japanese, but still has enough anime tropes that it'll ease you into the medium.

I second this, especially Cowboy Bebop and Tiger & Bunny.

I'll be considering watching either Black Lagoon, Psycho Pass, or Steins Gate once I finish Kenshin.
