    I never liked the original series of evangelion, nor the old movies.
    But i loved Evangelion 2.0 (The ending is amazing)

    Ayanaaaami!!!

    Feel like I sidetracked the thread but it's a thread about side tracking so that's ok. Evangelion. I loved the animation. Great shit. But the story and characters. I hated them. Terribly. "Kids with problems" is how I put it. Then they culminated it with the 'ran out of budget' psyche episode. Ugh. Teenage angst is ok as long as it's not 75% of the show, or at least cover it up with some plot.

    A show isn't art because you set out for it to be. It just turns into one. People didn't set out for Cowboy Bebop to be a work of art, they just wrote it, and animated it and it became what it was. A classic (I was going to say Cult Classic but I know tons of people that don't even like anime that see Cowboy Bebop and think it's amazing).



    Berserk. The funny thing is. Yeah the ending of the series is legit. Intense cliffhanger but one of those where it's just "That's the end. It wasn't happy but it was still good". Then you read the manga and it goes on even longer (well over twice as long), and gets even better surprisingly. Gatts (or Guts) is the most tragic character I've ever seen. Worst life ever lol.

    I've seen all the Eva movies to date, loved them all. Not sure which one had the pan shots of the theater audience and cosplay Rei, Misato and Asuka in the street at the end, but that was really awesome!... kinda spooky

    Well Evangelion is surely full of (too much) drama, but it's because their lifes were strongly affected by Second Impact. Sadly, life is writing even more dramatic stories; I don't think many people who experienced war can live normaly.

    I've tried reading Berserk but actually got distracted, I should try again because it seems like a thing I'll enjoy.

    Berserk used to be the most tough, dark fantastic manga outhere, now is like final fantasy.
    Still it is my favourite manga of all time along with hajime no ippo!

    I read the whole thing in a span of a few days awhile back, I just couldn't stop. The guys been working on the manga for over 20 years. That's just amazing in my book.

    i also watched the 2 new Evangelion movies and thought they were awesome.

    I haven´t watched the series in ages but it was very landmark for me, that an Akira ( Which is the best thing ever) really blew my mind when i was a teen.

    I haven´t been in touch with anime , manga stuff for a long time. Last one i read was Gantz, i liked the idea a lot but i think whoever writes for it watches too much hentai or something.

    I have only read the first two volumes of Berserk, very balls to the walls, my kind of stuff. And is has some of the nicest manga art, together with Vagabond i think are my favorite in that aspect so far.

    I wonder if there´s some really good recent ovas, movies and maybe a series to watch, i have been curious for something new but i´m so out of touch with the whole thing.

    I´m currently watching Eureka Seven AO.
    I was so excited about a sequel of the original series but sadly, this new anime is a great deception.
    I was expecting something as good as the original and this new story isnt bad but...
    Its not great, not even very good, just fanservice and stereotipes everywhere.

    I tried watching Eureka Seven twice but lost interest a few episodes in at both times.. Just too much pastel colors and exaggerated drama.

    My fav animes are probably Bebop, Trigun, The Twelve Kingdoms, Ghost in the Shell, Mononoke and Mushishi. I've tried to get into a few new shows but I tend to loose interest. Last one I saw and really enjoyed was Baccano. Sort of a mix between Tarantino and Cowboy Bebop.

    Give it a try, besides pastel colors and the drama the series have a really interesting plot in the later episodes.

    Also, anyone likes Jojo´s Bizarre adventures?

    in japan there's one channel that's been Naruto, Bleach and One Piece for a while right, but isn't there some cooking show that edged out Bleach? I heard that was good but odd. anyone know more?

    You mean Toriko, which is supposedly taking Bleach's place in the Big Three.

    And in the case of channels, One Piece plays on Fuji TV, Naruto and Bleach on TV Tokyo. Bleach (the tv show) ended back in March. You actually mean the same MAGAZINE, Weekly Shonen Jump, not a TV channel. In case you didn't know, the MAJORITY of Japanese cartoons are adaptations of comic books. Some ongoing, others not.

    The Big Three are what people refer to the most popular franchises in Japan, and they all run in Weekly Shonen Jump. One Piece is number one (though that popularity hasn't spread to the states at all), Naruto is second, Bleach might have fallen off the wagon.

    Bleach's cartoon's ended, but the comic is still going on (even though the author said he's on the final story arc almost a year ago.) He's actually taking a break right now because he got too sick to work.

    On the topic of Toriko, I don't care about it at all. But like Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, it's biggest visual influence is Fist of the North Star, so the main fighters look like serious steroid abusers, but they're still very bishonen despite that.

    Random Chatter

    One little tidbit about Toriko's author: Back in 2002 he was arrested for trying to buy sex from a 16-year old girl. Yes, this really happened. He got fired after that, but it seems they let him start working again after enough years passed, and Torkio began in 2008. I make sure to point this out whenever Toriko becomes a topic of discussion.

    According to the investigation, on November 12th of [2001], Shimabukuro and a 16-year old high school girl met at a hotel in Yokohama. Shimabukuro allegedly paid 80,000 yen for the girl to perform lewd acts.
