    So I've been watching a lot of anime recently because, well, TV these days sucks. Thought I'd start a thread to post favorites, things you think people should watch, and what you're watching currently. I think leaving off the staples of Bleach and Naruto is kind of a given. I've definitely watched more than this, but these are the ones worth your time.

    The one's I'm gonna list are all 1-2 season shows and mostly new stuff, but feel free to put in whatever you want.

    All of these are available on CrunchyRoll or Funimation

    Watching:
    Akame Ga Kill! (Fantasy, sword fighting)
    Sword Art Online II (3rd arc of SAO, pretty decent so far)
    Aldnoah Zero (Amazing mech anime, really like it)

    Seen:
    Chobits (Funny, slightly perverted)
    Infinite Stratos (Funny, Mech, Slightly perverted)
    Future Diary (Survival Game)

    Netflix produced one of their own, "Knights of Sidonia". Haven't watched it yet, but it looks pretty good.

    I watched knights of sidonia. I liked it. A bit short though. Hope there's a season 2. From what I hear, Netflix didn't really produce this. It was made independently in Japan, Netflix just paid for the translation. (I watch in Japanese with Subs anyway)

    My gf has been getting me to watch more lately. Some things I've watched in the last few months.

    Steins Gate
    Kill la Kill
    Samurai Champloo
    Attack on Titan
    Fairy Tail
    Sekirei
    Knights of Sidonia
    Full Metal Alchemist

    Just started Persona 4, and have a few others queued up. I think Steins Gate has been my favorite one so far. With Samurai Champloo being my 2nd fav.

    On the list to watch:
    Hunter x Hunter
    Sword Art Online
    Elfen Lied
    Blue Exorcist
    Claymore

    Elfen Lied is pretty good and Kill La Kill is definitely on my to watch list.

    Stein's Gate kept putting me to sleep, i like the premise and the characters I just wish the plot was slightly more exciting.

    I'm hardcore into time travel. And I loved the characters. But my gf couldn't get into it for the same reasons, even though she knows it's one of the best animes out there (based on reviews). It picks up about halfway through so you have to just get over the hump. Same with Samurai Champloo.

    I think that's why I like those 2 so much. The ending just wraps it all up excellently.

    Attack on Titan is pretty good. Season 1 is on Netflix. Have not found a legit source for the subsequent seasons though. Sword Art Online is good. Arc 3 was a little out there. A lot more fan service in that season for sure. I need to watch Full metal Alchemist as well. I have just recently started watching anime. Outside of initial D. I still need to finish that as well.

    Yeah, I've seen a lot of those...most of my titles were new stuffs, cause if you're into anime you've seen most of the classics...and if you haven't, you need to, cause classics are a thing for a reason.

    Although I will admit, I bought gunslinger girl for the title and the box art....story was pretty slow given what it's about.

    I thought it was pretty good, but I watched it all on a series of plane rides and loved the shock value for the passengers next to me watching me watching little kids kill people. :D

    I considered that to be one of the classics that he should have already watched... I watched it almost 20 years ago myself.

    An oldie, but goodie is the robotech and gundam wing series. I have been watching anime for over 20 years and I forget all the good titles. I wanted to subscribe for recommendations and I will add more as I remember things.

    I know almost nothing about this stuff. But our oldest has been going to a Anime Convention all weekend. My wife hand made him an outfit. Karito is the character.....I think. It's a black and gray trench coat looking thing. He grew his hair out and temporarily dyed it black. He's getting lots of positive comments so my wife did good. Not sure if it got him some tang but I guess that would be a bonus.

    There is usually some sweet "tang" at those conventions, so lucky him if he did.
