Translations: Gintama 515 (2)
I watched episode 1 of Moretsu Pirates. Promising series, though the first episode was primarily a prologue. I will watch episode 1 of Nisemonogatari tomorrow. After that I plan on starting Another, which got very good reviews in ANN's winter anime preview.
I just watched episode 1 for Guilty Crown, and I kinda like it so far. Nice animation, and it jumped right into the action. I think I'm going to pick up Another as well, seems interesting.
I tried Another today. First time watching horror anime, oh, well... I am interested by the plot so I'll give it a try.
More like the Shu has no chance of being near a top character list anytime soon. :P There was a Guilty Crown special released last week, that's why there's still no ep12. Got to watch 10/11 today, as the preview pics[pics are obvious spoilers!] appear to be promising for once.
I'm watching Shakugan no Shana III (My most wanted), Guilty Crown, Persona 4, Another, Sket Dance
I'm waiting for Toaru Majutsu no Index III (nearly as wanted as Shana... *__*)
Maybe I watch Code Geass
I've only been watching only Gintama since Tiger & Bunny ended I would like to pick up another though.
Does anybody know if Guilty Crown is any good? And how is Nisemonogatari compared to Bakemonogatari?
Nisemonogatari: Watch it, it's easily as good as Bakemono and so far the best show if the season. Witty dialogues as it's best, mixed with Shaft's great and unique animation. If you liked the first show there's no way you won't like Nisemono.
GC is only good for the eye candy and the songs and the fact that I love watching trainwrecks.
It might have been getting better now and then, and there might still be hope left but until then my advice to you is to not pick it up unless
you want to turn your brain off watching, then it might be "good" for you.
Saying that it is enjoyable is really being kind, I'll call it something that didn't lived up to its hype.
i haven't watch any anime that has gotten my attention since eureka seven and blood + i'm waiting for eureka seven ao anthing that Bones make i watch though Dai Satō has to be the screenwriter

I'm not much of an anime guy. I mostly stick to manga. But since I don't have anything to read this weekend, I decided to check out Tiger & Bunny. It has been really awesome so far. I'm really glad I started to watch it. It kind of renewed my interest in anime in general. I will probably check out more anime from now on. If only there was more anime broadcast on tv like there was when I was a kid. I hate watching shows on the computer.
Just watched the first episode Eureka Seven AO and I am blown away.
I mean, when Bones works on something you expect it to be pretty but.....wow. Just wow. Overwhelming beautiful visuals(movie quality much of the time), dramatically intense, and fantastic audio work. Story and characters seem good too. If it can maintains this quality it's going to be something special.
There's always a slight cringe factor with me when it comes to mecha (I just don't share the fascination with giant robots) but this episode completely blew that away just like the original Eureka Seven managed to.
Good call, on Nisemonogatari. That was a wonderful anime.
Tiger and Bunny was a favorite of mine. I'm pretty stoked that their are a pair of Tiger & Bunny movies coming out. Though, naturally, I would prefer another series.

Currently watching Guilty Crown and Ef: A Tale of Memories. Enjoying both so far, nice animations. Preparing to watch Noir after them, already started a while back but never got passed the first episode for some reason.
Just finished Toradora! finally, don't know why it took that long...
And OMG, it was fantastic! I don't remember the last time I liked absolutely everything about an Anime...I don't even know where to start!
Go watch it, you know you want it
Also finished Kimi Ni Todoke, and it didn't disappoint, that's for sure!
Watched(since last time)
-Kimi Ni Todoke I & II
-Guilty Crown(Though I'm not sure if it's worth it other than the eyecandy )
-Tiger & Bunny
-Darker Than Black
-Higurashi & Umineko
Also planning to take a look at Eureka Seven, is the story the same as in the manga?
If so, I will read the manga first.
Even though Noir was running in TV some years ago and I have the series now complete, I never watched more than the first six episodes...

Lots of good stuff on that list. Especially Bakemonogatari, Nisemonogatari, Tiger & Bunny, Code Geass, and Darker Than Black(1st season only, 2nd one kinda sucked IMO).
And judging by that list you might want to take a look at Katanagatari, if your not aware of it.
As for Eureka Seven in relation to it's manga they are different, it was actually created after the anime I believe(alternete universe or some such). The movie is also quite different(also an alternate universe). I recommend the anime over both of them by a large margin; though I'm somewhat biased since it's easily in my top 3 anime of all time.
