I didn't make an update here in a looooong time. Well, anyway, currently I'm watching AoT. Yeah I know I'm late to the party.

General Discussion » I'm looking for an anime to introduce my friend to the culture...

@ohgodwhy said:

Full Metal Panic! Trust me this is the one you want to show her. It's got it all, nice innocent relationship, comedy, lots of action, mechas. It was my first anime and it got me hooked.

I absolutely agree. This is the show that got me into anime, and to this day still stands as my favourite anime. Great mixture of action, comedy and romance.

Maybe it's this TK from Angel Beats?

Just Anime » First v.s. Last Anime you watched.

Nice thread idea! 
 
First: Persona Trinity Soul  
 
Last: Ergo Proxy 
 
 
 
I was completely uninterested in anime until I saw the Persona 4 endurance run over on Giantbomb, which made me get absolutely crazy about the game. Then I played Persona 3 and found that it has an anime made after it, so out of curiosity I watched that.  
However, that anime was kinda bad; I mean the quality was pretty good but the plot was jumbled and completely messed up. However that made me curious for other anime, and someone mentioned Full Metal Panic, and after I watched that I got completely hooked on anime (FMP remains as my favorite anime series to date).  
 
 
 
 
 
  

Ergo Proxy I watched rather recently, and it is definitely among the top 10 anime I've ever seen. The atmosphere, the characters, the art -- I loved everything. I really can't find a flaw to this anime. The slow pacing might be off-putting to some, but I liked it. I'm currently watching Katanagatari, and so far it seems very promising.

Any Miyazaki probably. Those are always crowd pleasers.
Just avoid Grave of the Fireflies, unless you want to be depressed for a month or so.

General Discussion » Light and Lelouch- Are they really that similar?

While they are the most popular anti-heroes in all of anime, and that's really why everyone compares them, they do have one big difference.  
Lelouch knew when to quit, while Light wanted to get his utopia at all costs. 
 
Oh and OP, edit your post and put a spoiler warning at the top, so I can have peace of mind (not for me since I watched both shows, but others might have not).

@sharingan_eyes: He just did it because he was bored

He was bored before he encountered the Death Note, but his ulterior motive was to create an utopia, a world free from criminals. If Light killed simply because he was bored, the audience would never sympathize with him.

General Discussion » So what happened to the Byakugan?

This should probably be in the Naruto forum since I had no idea what have you been talking about until I googled it.

Just Anime » Any sugestions

School Rumble, Love Hina, and if you want something less perverted but still funny go with Toradora (which IMO is the best of the three).  
Tsukaima no Zero is pretty funny and perverted but has magic in it so I don't know if you'll like it.
 
If you want something more serious and with more drama Kimi ni Todoke and Clannad are pretty good.

Bug Reporting » Can't see my own profile, can't post updates, etc.

The day before yesterday, all of a sudden the summary tab of my profile page looked like this
The problem persists on multiple browsers and on multiple computers. I have no idea how to fix this, so I figure it might be a problem with the site. Other people's profiles are showing up fine to me. 
Thanks for the help!

Wait, does Full Metal Panic include The Second Raid? I'm voting for it regardless though.
Same question here. I think Tom would really like TSR. Voted for Full Metal Panic! anyway because it is an awesome show.

Fate/Stay Night » Visual Novel and Anime versions

@cfatalis said:
@AgentJ: @eldiax:  Dear people who have just played the visual novel first 2 routesgo for Sakura next, Your opinion on Shirou WILL get changed, he awesomeness in its undiluted form there
If he gets even more badass than UBW, then I absolutely can't delay the next path anymore. I'm certainly looking forward to it :)

Fate/Stay Night » Visual Novel and Anime versions

@AgentJ: It's been quite some time, so I thought I'd report back.

It seems most of the problems I had with the anime are not so prevalent in the game. I feel the game does a much better job explaining Shirou's motives and reasons for his ideals. I also liked Saber a lot more in the game than in the anime. Overall, I'm definitely having fun with it, so far it isn't even close to Ever17 (which has the most amazing story I ever experienced, it's like the Inception of videogames). Although that might change for the better, since I still have one more route to do. I'd definitely recommend this visual novel to anyone. Also, the localization is really, really good. Almost no spelling/grammar errors, and everything is easy to read and comprehend.

Quests » Someone has to do it....Volunteering

DO NOT REMOVE EUREKA 7 OR I WILL UNLEASH MY WRATH UPON YOU.

Anyway, that's a great idea, it would definitely help to have more quests to do! Quest-wise, I believe Anime Vice has the smallest number of quests out of all the Whiskey sites, so definitely a good idea.

Just Anime » Persona 4 anime on the way!

So, the countdown timer on  http://www.mayonaka-tv.jp/ finished today, and revealed that the new Persona related project is in fact an anime. So, how many people here are excited for this? How many of you even know what Persona is?

I'm skeptically excited for this, if it turns out to be more interesting than the Persona 3 anime Trinity Soul (which wasn't really that good btw), I'll be all over it. From the video it seems that the characters in the anime will be from the game.

Full Metal Panic! » Worth Watching?

@Afroman269: Have you tried watching Samurai Champloo and Darker than Black? That might be something up your alley, especially Samurai Champloo, since it's by the same director as Cowboy Bebop.  
 
But yeah, you definitely won't be able to like FMP, since the goofy humor continues, especially in the second season (Fumoffu!) which doesn't have any action at all.
