Knights of Sidonia
Gurren Lagann
Samurai Shamploo
FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood
Death Note
Eureka Seven
Fairy Tail (You'll have to switch to subbed after episode 48, though)

Those are the ones where I've seen the dub a good amount through and wholely recommend.

There are 6 I'll need to check the dubs of, though. I'll get back to you on those by tomorrow, since I'd need to watch the first episodes of each...

Any recommendations for Anime that is on Netflix and in English?

English as in Dubbed? I'll be right back, I just gotta look. Manga Entertainment and Funimation are the only ones putting their stuff on Netflix (well, possibly a few other smaller guys, too) last I checked, but since you have to pay to see the dubbed stuff on Funi's site now (well, actually, you can still watch a few dubbed episodes, but you'll be bumped to Hulu, so what's the point?), that actually makes recommendations easier. I'll be back in 10 minutes or so with a quick list.

The same instruments are used, but that's about all that's familiar, at least to my ears. The Pokemon song is more intense, while the One Piece one is more uplifting, giving a sense that you've just accomplished something great. I will say that both are used in adventure-oriented anime, so the music in both tend to have a sense of grandure to them.

I can’t say what the title is but it is very exciting and is for an absolute top notch publisher.

Minecraft is my guess (Yes, I know Microsoft acquired it but they said "That is why we plan to continue to make Minecraft available across platforms--including iOS, Android and PlayStation, in addition to Xbox and PC." Maybe Wii U is next.

I find it hard to believe this would be considered AAA, and why would they call it "unannounced" in 2012 when Minecraft came out in 2011?

I honestly enjoyed the series, and I think the original ending was fairly fitting. The only reason people got upset was because they missed the point of the story. It was Shinji's story, and everything was meant to play into it. Asuka was not the point. The angels were not the point. They were visual representations. The ending basically being a therapy session/case study was the ending the series deserved for the story they were going for. No one should have to suffer through End of Evangelion just to get the "full experience", because it wasn't the full experience. The full experience was the series, and all EoE did was ruin that experience and everything it stood for. Obviously the Rebuild movies are better - better written, better paced, better directed, and had an altered central theme that more people can relate to. But since the final movie isn't out yet, I do recommend giving the series a look.

Well yeah, but that could mean a couple of different things. I definitely got no satisfaction from EoE, but that's sort of the point, no? You may come out of it hating the show, yourself, sunsets, and life in general, but I think that was the creator's intention.

Which is I consider it the absolute worst movie I've ever seen, and likely will for many years to come. It's one giant trololo, a middle finger to the audience, and even his own creation. And that's not what a movie should ever be, or any piece of entertainment - they're supposed to entertain, after all.

Damn, that's a good guess, it's only an Arcade game right now. I'm hoping Bamco does that one in-house with Ninty's supervision, though.

My guess...I'm not sure. It can't be a next-gen game, because there isn't a single notable, sub-M-rated, non-Sports, AAA game on the PS4 and Not-PS4 that isn't published by Sony or Microsoft...that just leaves PC, last-gen, and maybe Arcade. If it's last-gen, I doubt it'd be their biggest game yet. If it's PC, I'm not versed enough in the platform to make any guesses. If it's somehow an arcade game, it'd have to be one attached to a big-name IP...

Okay. So this was the guy who made up roughly 70% of the humor of The Completionists. I only watched two episodes of that show, so I'm not sure how I feel about this. But I will say that he was the reason their icon on NormalBoots changes to a bear when you highlight it. That alone earns him one tear of sorrow for his departure. :'(

Somehow this doesn't sound like a good thing ??? ;___;

I think what was great about shows like Gurren Lagann for instance, is it balanced a serious story but also most of the time didn't take itself seriously.

Evangelion is not one of those shows. Outside of some lighthearted bits near the beginning, it takes itself very seriously. If you don't want super-cereal, then you probably wouldn't enjoy Evangelion. Keep in mind, though, that most of the situations do call for the serious tone. In retrospect, the lighthearted bits feel very out of place when they're used.

I honestly think the last two episodes were better than End of Evangelion. Then again, I honestly think getting my eyeballs ripped from sockets would be more pleasurable than watching End of Evangelion.

I do recommend giving the series a watch, I've seen it about 4 times through and generally change my opinion on it every time, but I've yet to find a series where I wanted to watch it that many times. Of course, the Rebuild movies (1.11, 2.22, and 3.0 because 3.33 will probably release a year after Ragnarok) are far superior in every way, so you could always just watch those...

@Dipper723 only made it to 4:23 cause the guy seems to just be on a rant talking about a small vocal minority of a group. I am one of those people that thinks the PS4 is kinda getting a pass but I don't think Metacritic scores matter. So I don't think his video is really saying anything.

I made it to the end and he honestly said nothing of value, and actually contradicted what he said near the halfway point by the end...it's a fact that no one cares about the Wii U's games? How? How does he know this? We don't have detailed game sales data in the United States, a large playerbase. Hell, we barely have hardware data. Yes, you can't have more sales than a console has sold, but last I checked, having over 2 million in 6 months was pretty damn good for most games. If we go by VGChartz, the only "source" of global games sales data the larger internet has access to, then a lot of Wii U games have passed the 2 million mark, and several of them came out in or after June 2014. In fact, two of the best-selling Wii U games are around the 4 million mark. Only 4 next gen games have actually surpassed them on any one platform...at the very least people are interested in the games. Sure, most of them are from Nintendo, and there's a bigger pool to choose from on the PS4 and Xbox One. If he had simply stuck to arguing that people who own the PS4 and Xbox One saw value in their systems and enjoyed the games they had for the systems, and that the naysayers who believe those systems don't deserve sales are simply projecting their own opinions, his argument would've been solid. Evidence is abundant for those claims. Instead, he kept going, and he basically ended the video by doing exactly what he was criticizing, only aimed at the Wii U, thus heavily muddling and even completely abandoning his original point.

I don't know. I hear Sonic Satam but, i think that is overrated. I like AOSTH better.

Honestly, SatAM is the best cartoon I've never watched, if only because it's basically the best part of the Sonic comic (judging from the clips I have seen): The early parts of it, before it went way too long and got all screw-y and extremely difficult to follow.*

Adventures of Sonic, though, just felt too weird and scatteredbrained. I have watched a couple episodes of it, both when I was a kid, and when I was an adult. It was part of the Ren & Stimpy era of fast-paced slapstick that I honestly feel most cartoon makers failed at completely. I mean, it sorta makes sense that a Sonic comedy show would be fast-paced and just never stops moving, but that doesn't mean it's a good thing...

*Off-Topic, but Sonic's comic series is basically why I hate long-running comics so much. Much like the worst parts of shounen manga, they feel very convoluted and highly impenetrable after a while. You could argue that other comics have "jumping points", but if I don't have to follow a story from beginning to end, is it really a story? Or is it just a series of events? I just can't appreciate a story that has no closure - that will never make an attempt towards closure. The problem with Sonic, though, was that it genuinely had a plot and a goal - unlike, say, Superman, where you had a set up that lead to a series of tangently related events - but the story kept putting off the goal, adding stuff that could genuinely be considered filler. And that's as far as I got, honestly. I think I heard the story actually achieved the original goal - stop Robotnik and restore the denizens of Mobius, along with the land itself, to their original state - but the story kept going. Which is fine, they set up lots of stuff that had to be addressed thanks to all the filler. What isn't fine is that, thanks to a lawsuit, they essentially had to reboot the whole world and much of the cast, thus rendering any amount ground gained towards even the original goal mute.

I know this is something of an isolated incident, but to me, it's more of a reminder of how much I dislike stories that aren't built to end: if one that had been constructed with an actual longterm goal in mind got stretched out and failed to reach any sort of conclusion, what hope is there for these other series, where an ending was never even considered by the original author, who may even be dead by now? Whenever I look at a big-name comic series, I'm usually hit with multiple continuities, plot arcs that don't lead into eachother or even have anything to do with eachother, reboots, rewrites, and endings that are never really the end. To me, it's frustrating. Moreso than stories that don't finish because the budget ran out or the author died. When I was taught how to write, one of the first things my teachers stressed was to start out with a goal and work from there. Yet here, it always feels like the goal is to make money, and nothing more.
