Definitely the best series of this list. Even though I've already read the manga and know what to expect, the anime does not disappoint at all. In fact, seeing it animated makes me happy, and the catchy tunes emphasize the relaxing atmosphere of this slice-of-life, farm experience story that has many simple but deep lessons imbued in every episode. Hachiken is a very likeable main character (which is increasingly rare for me these days). He's not perfect and he has a lot to learn, but the viewer can really relate to him. The humor in this is great, as well as the introspective parts that make you ponder. My rambling here really doesn't bring the series justice, it's best to check it out for yourself.
Of course, Pork Bowl is the best Those who enjoy Fullmetal Alchemist should check out this series anyway, since it's by the same mangaka
I'm probably biased but I look forward to an ep each week. Comical, crack and just facepalm-wtf, exactly the type of series I need to keep me entertained. You really feel sorry for Kuroki Tomoko, though we can probably relate to some of her social inability to an extent. After all, unsuccessful social situations must have happened at least once during some point in one's life, and I'm no exception. Seeing the issue shown in this humorous way amuses me to no end. The season finale didn't show much improvement in her character, however she still improved a tad since the beginning, due to her
Anyways, if you just want to have a good laugh or something nonsensical to take your mind off of troublesome matters, this is the series for you.
KyoAni, what can I say? The purty graphics and coloring just draw me in. The simple plotline just reminds me of K-ON!, which is nostalgic. Except, of course, this is an all-male cast (though I adore Gou... I mean, Kou to no end) so not all K-ON fans would like the series
Overall, if you want something simple but enjoyable like K-ON and don't mind the aforementioned gender ratio in the cast, check out this series!
Shingeki no Kyojin
If I write down everything on my mind pertaining to SnK, it'd take pages and I don't feel like spending so much effort about a series that both excited and disappointed me. The visuals are stunning, the animation is impeccable, and the music is all very good. The first episode got me hooked in this fictional universe and I ended up reading all of the manga chapters.
I shouldn't have done that.
In doing so, I find myself disappointed in many parts which might have been received differently by an anime-only fan. Arc 1 felt really drawn out, giving NPCs unnecessary scenes that didn't have any effect (when a few simple lines would do). There are also the fanservice bits where some members of our favorite 104 corps were given extra scenes, some I liked but mostly I didn't. Arc 2 was a huge opinion however, because Levi's character is handled better than the manga in my opinion. I was average towards him in the manga, but now he could easily be one of my favorite. One of the highlights of arc2, which is the bit with Levi's team (not gonna reveal more but fans would know which one) was done very well. It has the same intensity as the manga, which the majority of such major scenes had failed so far. The extra bit with Petra while Levi watches on (again fans would know) wasn't in the manga but it was very effective and killed a lot of the viewers.
Season finale. Now that I've calmed down I wont' rant as much. I've prepared myself to accept however way they ended considering the manga is still ongoing so they would have to make the finale as conclusive as they could. For the most part, it was alright, acceptable, since Eren raging and yelling and raging and yelling is nothing new and it's been there since day 1, so in a way I agreed this way of ending the series is fine. However, Mikasa's role was largely downplayed as well as many of the prominent scenes. Sure they added Annie's tears, which I liked, but "Fall, Annie"... this line... I don't know, the delivery didn't come out as I expected and I was sorely disappointed.
Still, this series is worth watching and definitely the manga. The mangaka put a lot of effort into subtle scenes and symbolism (it really feels like a light novel instead of manga) which some, I felt, were lost in the anime. I can't wait for season2 though, because the next arc is not only my favorite, but it also showed even more facets of that fictional universe as well as a dynamic support character cast
This series is still ongoing, thank god, or I don't know what I'd watch. I'm an avid reader of the manga series. It's about Ancient China... based on the beginning of the Qin Dynasty. Now, the first season totally failed with the bloody, brutal fight scenes, be it large-scale or one-on-one. However, thankfully, second season improved a huuuge deal regarding its animation and drawing, and so I find myself looking forward to an ep each week in spite of knowing what would happen.
Legend of Korra: Book2
There are parts I like, such as Tenzin's side of the story, but so far from ep1-4, it's been a huge letdown. I shouldn't have expected much considering how season1 ended, but really... I'm more interested in the sidestory (Tenzin's side) than Korra's, which is just sad. However, I'm still willing to give this series a chance... by keeping my standards low as I watch each ep
An upcoming series. I've read the manga and liked it. It's violent, macabre and just plain disturbing at
It's a story about a little sister who got transformed into a monster craving human flesh and the big bro wants to protect her at all cost... by letting her eat him, literally. Intrigued yet?
Kuroko no Basuke2
Ahahahaha!! I still can't believe it myself, but I actually like this series despite being so skeptical of it years ago. Slam Dunk is still the gold back ofc, but this the best we got for this day and age
I've heard many good things about it so I'm going to check out the first ep 030
Kyoukai no Kanata
KyoAni after all. Gonna check out first ep, and we'll see if I continue watching like Tamako Market and Free!, or dropped like Hyouka...
So these are the commemorating deviations from my gallery
100th (confirmed), 200th (??? not sure), 300th (confirmed), 400th (??? not sure)
Dang I sure like having group shot XD welp for sure the 500th will be singular.... or features two characters, since the poll is kinda tied atm =w=
