@caseyb1993 I know but I wasn't expecting THAT final episode in a high school anime (altho I've worked out they have middle school in Japan so they are actually 16 year olds, not quite as bad as I thought!!! Have you actually seen the show or just mentioned it because you've heard of it? If you not seen it don't read the spoiler but ...

 

Spoiler
But seriously THAT episode .... I knew something was going to happen but didn't think Sekai was going to be the one to kill Makoto but then when Kotonoha lured her up onto the roof and I'm like oh no ... Then look in the bag and I'm like OH NO ... then I don't think you're really pregnant and it's OHHHH NOOOOO!!!! and then WTFFFFF!!!! and OMGGGGGG!!!!!!! and then on the boat I'm like OH MY!!!! and just ... WOW!!!

 

No seriously when you and @Anonymous User have been going on about how anime really grabs you emotionally the ones I've seen so far haven't done that but this one! I wasn't convinced for the first few episodes but from half way on its become some kind of gripping soap opera ... I've been

  • frustrated
  • annoyed
  • laughed at how unbelievable it all is
  • shocked
  • gripped
  • enthralled

First anime that I've got to the end of and just thought wow what have I been through, I get it now! Loved it! I feel like I need time to recover before I get back on the anime bandwagon though, what a journey School Days has been! 

 

THANKS @caseyb1993 ..... Phew, I feel like I need a break to process it all before I get back on the anime bandwagon tho! 🙂

@Andy I have seen it before but a few years ago. It didnt stay with me like Death Note did but the last few episodes did freak me out like you! 😮

 

I think it caused alot of controversy when it originally aired and that is what interested me. 😮

 

BTW, remember when i told you about Elfen Lied? 

I read that your Stranger Things was inspired by that so... Smiley Tongue Smiley Tongue

@caseyb1993 Well I've started watching my 50p High School DxD bargain.... Omg I've never seen anything like it! I thought there was plenty of jiggle in HSOTD but this has taken jiggle to another level ... I had to draw the curtains in case the neighbour's saw! 😄 Have you seen it? No wonder they were selling it for 50p just to get it out of the shop! 

 

Anyway in between all the smutty Carry On film dialogue and widescreen jiggle there's quite an interesting story of demons vs angels which feels very anime! Will see how it goes!

@Andy No I haven't seen it. I've only seen one "jiggle jiggle" series called Prison School. Ughhhh.(HSOTD aswell but can't remember much lol).

 

I've been rewatching my first anime called "Fruits basket". Forgot how great it is. I found the DVD on my shelf and discovered the bluray is out this month!

@caseyb1993 Zodiac animals? Has it got unicorns in? I feel I need an anime with unicorns in to broaden my education!

 

Where is @Anonymous User btw? Not heard from him for ages!

 

Actually here's a serious question that one or both of you might be able to answer ... So I've watched the Deathnotes and the Tokyo Ghouls, I've been depressed by School Days and seen the jiggles, watching angels and Demons with DxD ... so is there any other 'anime types' I've not covered yet? Just pink unicorns or is there some other type I need to give a go?

@Andy Well you haven't given the masterpiece that is Clannad a go yet. 😉

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you will be ever so confused. Just what you need in an anime! 

 

The higurashi series as well is another masterpiece! The first two seasons anyway. It is very "IT" thinking about it as it involves an "entity",sort of, and a club! Not getting my hopes up for a DVD release here anytime soon though. 😞

 

A couple of my fave creepy clips:

No it doesn't have unicorns haha. Fruits basket is basically about a family that is "cursed" and transform into the animals of the Chinese zodiac if hugged by the opposite gender. It is an interesting watch. 🙂

Oh I'm still around @Andy! Just not as active on here as I'd like to be sadly..work is keeping me very, very busy!

 

Haven't been watching much anime either recently as well 😮 definitely do need to catch up on some more stuff. 

 

Have you watched any straight up comedy series? I'm trying to think of some right now but my mind is blank and I'm still tired..

 

Definitely give Clannad a go though like @caseyb1993 says!

Ahh, six months hard labour down in the NOW TV dungeons?

That'll teach you to watch Rick and Morty on the job! 😉

 

I will get round to Clannad eventually, I feel it's compulsory in order to stay in the club, but it's the thought of all those episodes! Oh yes a nice little comedy anime would be good for when I finish DxD, get your thinking caps on folks!

@Andy If you want a comedy that doesn't really follow one main storyline, then I recommend Ouran High School Host Club. 🙂

@Anonymous User Did you tell me once you've seen this before?

 

OuranHS2

 

tumblr_mwlazyRPfi1qj7g7io1_500

 

The show is pretty much about a girl who is mistaken for a boy and is "forced" to join a host club after she breaks a valuable vase. A host club is basically a club where guys like to make girls happy. (Don't twist those words as it isn't how it sounds! Lol)

 

Here is a small clip to introduce you to it. 🙂

@caseyb1993 There's a lot of episodes again! 😶

 

Doyou need to watch them all in order (in which case it will have to go on my sometime maybe list) or can you treat it like a sitcom and once you've watched the first episode just dip in here and there when you feel like it and it still makes sense (in which case phew I'll give it a go) 😎

@Andy In a way they do need to be watched in order but it isn't an anime to watch all in one go if that helps. 😉

 

The longer series are better as the really short ones are rushed. 😞

 

I suppose if you want a short one, then Dagashi Kashi is good. It is literally set in a sweet shop and pretty much seems like advertising. 😄

It's on FunimationNow as season 1 is blocked on Crunchyroll. 😞

@caseyb1993 Ah that's ok then I'll give it a go and just watch one now and then in between everything else (the first one not the sweet shop one! Unless it has every flavour kitkats in, in which case I'll tune in! 😄 )

 

I'll have to watch Clannad but I think I need to set aside a block of time otherwise I'll never get it cracked, so probably summer with sun shining, feet up, no work, pina colada with a little umbrella etc etc !! Then I can look up at the sun and contemplate the meaning of life afterwards like Ryan had to! 😎

@Andy I had to do that after watching Clannad as well, it truly is a masterpiece! (don't forget Clannad: After Story as well 😉 )

 

Even both seasons are less episodes than GoT!! 😄
