    I noticed the movie and tv show threads and that gave me the bright idea for a Anime/Manga top 5 thread.

    1) Dragon Ball Z

    2) Naruto

    3) Bleach

    4) One Piece

    5) Death Note

    I never finished watching Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball GT, only DB-Z i've watched from the 1st episode to the last.. but if you say Dragon Ball is better than DBZ i might give it a try, i've only seen the 1st 4 episodes or something..

    fullmetal alchemist and samurai champloo are the main ones I felt like mentioning. My overall favorite being fma, nothing will ever fuck with it in my opinion. Not even a small comparison.

    Of course dragonball z and trigun are classics..

    Elfen lied was pretty ill too, but really short. Black lagoon was another good one..

    Naruto is absolute garbage. I've tried watching it from episode 1 going on 4 times for an unbiased opinion.. never make it 20 episodes in. Such a waste of time in my eyes. Half of every episode is a flashback, fuck that.. even dragonball z's long drawn out waits for suspense can't compare.

    What i like about Fullmetal Alchemist is that there's no filler, just like Death Note, just a solid story line from beginning to end.

    But you dead wrong for calling Naruto absolute garbage though, i know its your opinion so you have every right to call it what you want, but eurghbody that knows Naruto knows that it gets better and better in due time, i do hate the fact Naruto has more filler than a freestyle battle between Syanide and illspokin though..

    I guess, but I don't have enough time on my hands to watch 10 episodes only to see roughly an hour and a half of actual story. It will NEVER happen, so naruto is doomed in my case.

    Ps: I find the turning into logs, smoke and water in order to keep anyone from dying really corny. I just hate the show in all fashions.

    I ain't watching 500 episodes just to see to be continued either.

    not really watching anime actively, there's only a few select good ones
    elfen lied, death note and code geass are all dope to me. i LOVE psychological thrillers and those all fit the perscription. code geass is pretty much everything that was sick about death note. i actually recommend it to anyone who likes death note.
    ive bene following bleach but theyve been in fillers for like the past 5 months
    one piece and naruto are fucking awful in my opinion i dont even know how someone could enjoy those shows at this point i mean you have to end a series at some point but whatever
    i got through half of samurai champloo which was really cool.
    my fiance been trying to get me to like the new full metal alchemist but i'm just not feeling it

    as for dragon ball z.. i grew up on that shit. it's amazing, obviously. i even watched the new movie that they just released like half a year ago. they're re-releasing the entire series remastered and re-recorded without the 5 minute close-up facial power up scenes and it's supposed to be like 40 episodes shorter. i think it's called 'dragon ball kai'.


    that being said, a lot of anime is garbage. it's just like american cartoons.

    and as a final note, i really think it's better to watch all the animes i listed in japanese with english subs. english dubs are usually awful and lack the passion of voice actors. dbz gets a pass because the english dub is from my childhood and goku sounds like a straight up female in the japanese version.

    I watch anything made by funimation in English, its at least of decent quality.. otherwise, Japanese. I haven't been able to watch any animes for about a year or two but I have an open mind an can appreciate art of most forms.

    Give fma a chance, I suggest. Its only 51 episodes and a movie, so it isn't much of a risk. You will like it, guaranteed.

    I echo, naruto is garbage to me. Bleach is the same, just less lame.

    Naruto is also VERY stretched out, but at the beginning of the series when all of the students fight one is epic.

    Rock Lee is THAT dude...beyond him, that show sucks

    DEAT NOTE is possibly one of the greatest series, period, ever produced.

    If we're talking series you can't really say Akira or Ninja Scroll

    FMA
    Ghost in the Shell SAC
    Fist of the North Star
    DBZ
    Paranoia Agent
