What are you niggas watching or have watched recently or throughout the year? I'll forgo mentioning any remotely girly/overly geekish ones that i may or may not have seen. Avatar Season 1: 3.5/5(rating)- American anime...which is actually decent. It was available for netflix streaming on my 360 and it was highly rated, so i decided to give it a chance(which i'm doing a lot of lately). Main story is above average, the downside being the filler episodes...which thankfully aren't filler arcs. It's obviously targeted more for a younger audience, but it's still enjoyable enough for anyone. Black Lagoon (whole series): 4.5/5 - Pretty fucking good....Revy is one gully ass bitch. Odd group of mercs doing business in southeast asia. Good story, action and occasional humor. the second season ended in 2007 and there isn't a 3rd season out yet...i was greatly disappointed by that. Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad: 4.5/5 - It's a rock band anime...i didn't expect much from it, but it was surprisingly good. kid has a chance meeting with an older up and coming guitarist forming a band. the kid learns to play guitar, eventually joining band and becomes lead singer. Songs are pretty good, story is great...I've even bookmarked the manga to continue with. Basilisk: 4/5 - Fight to the death between two warring ninja clans...Word. Gurren Lagann: 4.5/5 - Almost done with the series and almost tempted to give it a five. 27 episodes, so the story moves real quick. After the first couple episodes, I wasn't really impressed...almost stopped watching it, but then it picks up and changes completely. several times actually. as soon as you think it's settled into the current plot, it flips again. It's set in the future, mankind has been reduced to living underground...for centuries. a pair of opposites decide to break towards the surface after finding a drilling robot, with the heavens as their goal. halfway through the first season i was left like ...and basically hooked me in for good. One Piece (season 1): 4/5 - So far so good. never gave it a shot because of the overly cartoonish animation...but the story makes up for it. A kid who after eating "devil fruit" has been turned to rubber(right, but that aside)...is on a mission to be the King of Pirates...and is out looking for a ship and is handpicking a crew that can help him achieve that by attaining the highly coveted One Piece treasure. It's definitely interesting. Shigurui Death Frenzy: 4/5 - Would be 5 out of 5 if it were actually a complete series. Don't know where to start, really...but it's based around a duel(to the death) between two rivals looking for revenge. Starts out slow, and you wonder what the fuck is going on, until it becomes obvious that the story has gone back to tell in great detail the story behind each swordsman...Then as soon as the stories are coming to an end and nearing the actual fight(from the beginning of the anime), it stops...just like that. You'd have to read on in the manga to get any closure...but the anime itself is fucking amazing up until that. Code Geass: 4/5 - No need to explain since i've seen you niggas discuss this on several occasions, without the fucking spoiler warnings. death to you faggots. I'm not actually finished with it. Not a fan of the animation...story and characters are decent, but a far cry from death note. Ergo Proxy: 4/5 - Ill. A dark post-apocalyptic future where humanity lives on in domed cities with androids and there's a mysterious and elusive demon/monster on the loose wrecking shit. Mobile Fighter G Gundam: 2.5-3/5 - Separate from the other Gundams...even though it's old, the animation is tolerable. i'm on the 3rd disc of 12...if it doesn't pick up on the next disc, i'm just going to drop it. It's decent, but not exactly what i was looking for/expecting out of a gundum series. The Gokusen - 3.5/5 - A bit odd. the new head of a Japanese Clan, The Yazuka(which acts out more like an Italian Crime family), is a young woman who accepts this role, though she has always wanted to be a school teacher...which she already is secretly. It's decent enough though...which i'm halfway through. Shura no Toki: 4/5 - Pretty dope. An undefeated Legendary clan of martial artists that kill only with their hands known as the Mutsu is at the center of the story. Morbito: 4.5/5 - just started it, but so far it's really good. It's style reminds me of Ninja Scroll. An incredibly skilled female warrior has been given the task of protecting a young prince from would-be assassins sent out by his father in order to quell the rumors that he is possessed. Samurai Deeper Kyo: 3.5/5 - A bit off Samurai series. Two rival samurais fighting during the Sekigahara battle...a comet hits near the battle ground, apparently killing one, whose spirit/soul is trapped inside the body of the one that survived. Shit's kind of weird, but not bad. The fights are pretty good. I'm only halfway through. Hellsing Ultimate: 2.5-3/5 - If you've already seen the original Hellsing, don't bother with this. Mezzo: 3/5 - I'd suggest you watch the anime movie Mezzo Forte first...which was obviously better than this series, but it's still enjoyable. The story revolves around 3 main characters that are part of a merc-like agency. impossibly strong and agile bitch(who i suspect was an android, but i don't think it was ever said that she was) who basically get's shit done or people killed. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: 2.5/5 - If you were a fan of the movie you might enjoy this. I didn't really care for the movie and the first series after it even less. It was whatever...nothing special. Every episode was a stand alone story not at all connected with any of the previous ones. didn't actually finish, didn't see a reason, given the shit 23 minute separate plots. Blood +: 3.5/5 - So far. Amnesiac girl that is somehow the only being(half-vampire, though she doesn't know it) able to destroy blood-sucking demons that are increasingly becoming a threat to society. She continually regains old memories(which put her several hundred years old) as the story progresses.
