I’m watching Naruto and Attack on Titan.

I was going to end anime once in for all after my childhood show Naruto ended, but a friend showed me this crazy ass show attack on titan and I’ve been hooked sadly.

@grandkintaro777 Dude Im with you on Attack on Titan. I watched 6 episodes so far and I almost didnt want to stop watching, but real life got in the way lol.

A really good anime, probably my most favorite one, is Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.
Watching anime that has powerful themes and messages can certainly help ground people.

I’ve seen way too many anime series. I’ve probably completed about 50.. I don’t watch it much as of lately besides naruto.

Watching anime is not a weird thing, as long as that’s not the only thing you do in your life. We could even learn a lot of things from watching anime, it’s ridiculous to say that it’s childish or weird if you watch them.

Well I watch a lot of anime series, Attack on Titan is definitely awesome while made you think as well about humanity and stuffs while enjoying all those awesome actions!

Anyone here ever seen Kino’s Journey??? I thought it was great, very HE-like as well.

@hoodjesus, Yo anime is the shit and people who say it’s stupid or downtalk it either don’t get it, are thinking about it too much, haven’t given it a chance or something

I watch anime almost everyday, that’s what I spend most of my downtime doing besides surfing on the web

I can definitely agree with you on that one. Without anime to help relate and to share my passion with others (by meeting people and going to conventions), I think I would probably went down a path I didn’t want to. For example, FMA, that anime is amazing and it makes you think about life. Sure we can’t do what they do in the anime it’s what goes on behind of creating that anime, artists, director, singers, and so many others, give us a glimpse of their passion in making that anime for us to watch. Maybe I’m just rambling on but I can really related to some of the animes/mangas.

@hoodjesus, I am sure you can find more in books than in Anime. I like Anime but would not say anything like you have in your title. Learning from Anime is not a good idea.

Try picking up a book if you attention is not screwed up like most people today.

@Dafunks, Books are awesome but there are some animes that have some crazy themes. There is a lot one can learn from a good thoughtful anime.

DaFunks (366)M (@Dafunks) 9 years ago ago

@moonglade, I am not saying I do not see how it can teach you good things… I have just never seen it.

Anime makes me happy. I have watched it for around 30 years (My dad would watch it when I was young). It has some great stories that can give you some values I guess… but I have seen these same things in movies.

What have your learnt from Anime?

How come no one ever mentions Mushi-Shi?

That shit is underrated. Like, extremely.

If you want to be an anime hipster and be all like “you’ve probably never heard of it” when people ask your favorite anime, go watch it

That being said, FMA: Brotherhood is probably my favorite. I own all the full manga series as well.

Adam (118) (@moonglade) 9 years ago ago

@Dafunks, Well “Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann” was a classic “hero’s journey”

“Code Geass” and “Death Note” taught me about the dangers of a “God Complex”

“Trigun” taught me about the value of pacifism

Haven’t gotten to it yet but I’ve heard “Wolf’s Rain” commentates on religious themes and other heavy topics

Umm… there are more but I just can’t think of them right now, hopefully somebody can help me. Basically what I get from anime is how to cope with adversity and such. As cheesey as it is the whole “never give up” mentality of main characters are I find it quite inspirational. I’ll try to think of more.

Adam (118) (@moonglade) 9 years ago ago

@kidd, YES MUSHISHI a shitton of eastern philosophical themes.
