Dragon Ball Z is arguably one of the worst popular animes out there.

Can't believe people watch it. It's so bad that i laugh like 90% of the time.

majority of fans were from when they were kids, I liked it when I was like 8, not watched it in like 17 years, just a generic battle anime

Kimi No na Wa

some minor plot holes aside it's a really enjoyable movie, can clearly see how he incorporated parts from all of his previous works into it, I see why it was so successful and more appealing to a broader audience than his other stuff which was more niche 9/10

Not sure if this has been shared before, but I though this was a really interesting video on the decline of Bleach:

Its really sad Jay because i was one to start reading it ever since it first came out, he has valid points on that repetition of arcs. By the time the Aizen Arc finished i felt like i was done, but kept reading anyway because of like i said, stuck with it since the beginning. It was depressing reading it after that.

Its one of the few mangas, along OP and Naruto that i really started out with (like every other kid lol). On a tangent here, but i used to read for escapism, nothing to do with preteen growing into adolescent life stuff. I really just was depressed with life, school and such, and my light was going back home to read these. It was very personal experience, now that i'm older i can't replicate that feeling, part of the reason i've declined in my manga reading. I'm sure my list shorter than most of y'alls, but still i try to read new stuff every now and then to no avail.

Anyways, mini diary over, but Bleach will always have a special place in my heart, even if it did suck later on

Bleach was one of my first anime, too. Along with Naruto, funnily enough. I didn't even consider the stuff the video bought up but around the Hueco Mundo arc my interest waned, probably because things just dragged and dragged and I barely understood what was happening. I caught the finale in Aizen and then couldn't give two shits about anything afterwards. For me, Aizen being beaten and Ichigo giving up his powers just felt like a natural conclusion to the story. I wasn't interested in anything further.

The Soul Society arc still remains one of my favourite arcs in anime, though.

how much of the series have you read/watched btw? all of it?

it's one of the very few where I would recommend to people to watch rather than read, unbelievably faithful adaption that adapted everything from the manga and the OST and voice acting only enhanced the tone of the series, the studio that adapted it were huge fans.

Boruto is Nartuo's son Laughing They did a film about him then decided to make a TV anime for it since Shippuden finally ended. No doubt Boruto will be extremely long and full of filler as well.

My first foray into anime territory. Finished watching Death Note. Smile GOAT! Absolutely epic. Which should I go for next guys? I am so into anime now. Gimme more. bounce

Dat Americanised live action version of DN is looking atrocious tho. :facepalm:
Should have gone for Ezra Miller and Jesse Eisenberg as Light and L respectively. Idiots.

As soon as I read the first sentence I was gonna suggest Death Note Laughing

My 2 first suggestions for anyone wanting to get into anime are Death Note and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Both are on Netflix (maybe it depends on where you are?).

FMA:B is absolutely epic and has big production values, top animation, HD, etc. Maybe my favorite anime series of all time.

These 2 series would set the bar really high for anything after them though.

Whatever you do, do not watch Code Geass after Death Note.

Some folks suggested Code Geass to me as a natural progression from DN. What a waste of 2 weeks that was.

You could watch Stein's Gate. It has a slower narrative at the start, but some good time-travel fun in it.

@rincon and @Pep points noted. Thanks. Thumbs up
I have One punch man with me. I prefer a different type of anime now that DN is over. A light hearted fun one would do. So, may be I will give one punch a try.
More inputs are welcome. Smile Cheers.

- One Punch Man is awesome.
- Prison school is also another light hearted anime with many LOLs... but it's a bit Ecchi

My must watch animes:
- Psycho Pass
- Samurai Champloo
- Hunter x Hunter
- Monster
- Code Geass
- One Piece ( favourite anime/manga)

watch Psycho Pass, Ping Pong (might be too early for you to jump into something as 'out there' as this) or JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (the first part, which is the first 8-9 eps IIRC aren't really what the series becomes) it's one of the GOAT anime atm

Yea give One Punch man a go. Not long either and really fun to watch. Others are quite dark and heavy so you have time for those later on.

If you want fun I would highly recommend Azumanga Daioh. Very very funny show, and I would rank its episode 13 as one of the funniest episodes from a cartoon I have ever seen.

Theres one line where they are taking an examination in school, and one of the characters ask another how they did. When they reply not good she says something to the effect of "Well, of course it couldnt be" and the line is given in the most disrespectful way ever. It really stands out because in japanese you have ways of saying things in which normal people in public talk(think 丁寧語) and ways in which you wouldnt ever speak to even your best friend in public and she pulled it out right there. Makes my eyes tear up with laughter even thinking about it now Laughing Laughing.
