Did you read and comprehend my rule?

FMA is overrated. It was a fairly decent show. Actually, it was good, up until that fucking terrible ending which just made the entire 50-odd episodes before it completely pointless. It made me want to stab the creators in the crotch with a butter knife.
to those retards who think they know it all... do u think a show who can stay for over 200 eps in TV making MONEY is any bad? hell then i wonder... what's good O_o

now,to n4ruto,i've looked at that escaflower,but it looks kinda old.. but the movie,i thought... well,that looked better,but as i figuerd out buy reading the info was that it's the same story just..shorter. devadasy is going in my wish list,witchblade i watched for some time,hoped it was like the comic,but it wasn't so i stopped because it also reminded me of a bad version of...somthing bad,so devilman lady may not work... and when i read about it,it reminds me of blood +.. maybe i'll watch it if nothing els works...Elysium has that final fantasy anime kind...so gonna see that.. now,Generator Gawl has a tonn of downloads from a4e,but i can't see what the big deal is.. looks like another mecha...
about escaflowne ... the TV is heartwarming kinda shoujo like while the movie is more shounen like with blood, deaths and action. Just like the manga ( escaflowne got two diferent vers ). Generator Gawl is kinda like tekkaman blade ... this guy who got powers he didnt want and then have to use them to save the world and get a girl for himself while doing so ^^

You, sir, are an example of why the world is doomed.

Something that makes gobs of money doesn't make it good. Profit and quality do not go hand in hand. If they did, Windows would be a flawless user experience, Dan Brown would be the world's best author, and that insult to intelligence called American Idol would be producing good music.

Some mass-market things ARE good. Harry Potter, for example, is a damned good read. But if you're going to sit there and claim that a series (let's say...Naruto) that gets broadcast all over the US and gets legions of prepubscent fanboys is good quality...then I have something to say to you.

Never.

Reproduce.

so... ur point is that... because lets say 50% of the people thing it is good that's why it isnt ? O_o weird ... i though people watch stuff because they thing it is good and if more people think a thing is good than those that think otherwhise ... it was a fact it is good but hell i may be mistaken ^^ sounds like that stuff about wars... those who win are right the ones who lose are wrong O_o.

If 50.1% of the world told you that dipping your hand into sulfuric acid was a good idea, would it be? Hell, if 95% of the world said so, would it be? Clearly not, unless you enjoy being called Stumpy for the rest of your life. Another wonderful example: George Bush got elected by "majority", does that make him a good choice? Applying majority opinion to quality doesn't always work the way you want it to.

Furthermore, like most people, I tend to weigh opinions. If I have someone who is intelligent and well-spoken with evidence for his point, I'm more inclined to believe him over thirty drooling idiots. When you apply this to anime, I'm more like to believe one cynical intelligent asshole like myself over a legion of fanboys.

You're also confusing fact with opinion here. It's a fact that the earth is round (ok, oblate spheroid), it's not a fact that Naruto is the bestest anime EVAR!!!!1111, no matter how many people say so. It sounds like you have issues thinking for yourself with all this shit you spew about how if everyone likes it, it must be good - no, it means that they individually like it, and we're all individually capable of liking something that's pretty fucking dumb. I like what I like because I've found that I like it - not because people say it's good.

Albinosqrl: About FMA. I had no liking for that series before i enjoyed anime. Before I first sat and watched (enjoyed) cowboy bebop it seemed worthless to me. After enjoying anime though it got a bit of enjoyment merely due to the world the series created. The ending was rather disappointing merely due to how it left you though the movie solved this as it gives you closure. If you've failed to watch the movie, this might lower your opinion even if the movie wasn't great. The lack of closure on the story itself just kills a lot of series for myself and perhaps you. Though I still admit before great interest in all anime series to atleast try them, that series held none for me.

As for Naruto, the series is good subbed or in it's original language depending on your education. I avoid the dubbed version after seeing two randomly watched episodes in fear of hating the series as DB gives great care to those who rely on them for their animes that I can ensure I watch it as though it were to be coming out on tv at a certain time. Though that alone does not make it good nor high traffic of viewers. The world used for it is very flexible yet solid at the same time. Hense why it has +200 episodes, that world allowed for a lot of fillers but mind you a lot of them weren't great (though comedy value of having a weird creature urinate on your back has it's appeal to anyone who hasn't had something urinate on their back...). That alone wouldn't appeal to a lot of people, the morals and leasons as it were do appeal to a lot of people though. Such is something rare to obtain from anything now days, good morals and teachings for every age yet with violence and all of the things not "meant for every age". And there are a lot of other reasons just as there are bad reasons. If the fillers and +200 eps bother you then merely stop watching once fillers start and start watching again once the fillers stop. To judge the series based on it's fillers is rather rude when they produce these things for the fans to have their new naruto while they have to stop the main storyline. If anything show a bit of respect for them being so considerate, even if they'll never know. Atleast you will.

And one last thing, those ppl saying so many people watch it isn't going to make it good to watch, but it does prove one thing. It was good to have in existance and in the history books so to speak. Due to naruto, a lot of people in diffrent countries atleast are aware of anime. It's helping to blend the cultures on this planet much like other animes on cartoon network's adult swim have. Cowboy bebop for me. Inuyasha, FLCL, and so forth for others. Even if a lot of the ppl who watch naruto alone annoy me around here, it doesn't take away from the fact some ppl who won't annoy me will learn of it because of this nor the fact if it's so enjoyible that i could introduce it as the first anime exposure to ppl i know in hopes to raise interests much like others have done...or atleast tried. So hate or like it, atleast give a bit of respect to those making the series and what they have done. Even if the people speaking about it are "idiots" as far as you are aware. Watchin anime without having a bit of concern on karma and buddism, these things shouldn't happen.

-

And as for the win and lose idea posted a lil bit ago. For war, to say people died and things are destroyed means everyone lost. To say one side gets what they want only is wrong. Politics mean making a win or lose situation a win situation regardless of the outcome. Even those who "suffer" due to it could turn it into a good thing. Perspective is the only difference in such things. Is theirs in the future, present, or past and in which way? Such things hold true to almost everything.

Just as the views on what is good or bad, for what reasons, and so forth. Merely saying its good due to high viewing doesn't prove anything expect it has appeal to a lot of people. The histories of religions be it your own or others can explain the rest of what i just stated better than i ever could and if you haven't a clue of how to take that, it's best to learn such things. From current ones to something that's a short leason such as aztec faith.

------

As for series I've watched that are "unique", that all depends on what the people reading have seen, expect, or take out of an anime series to find something unique. A few listed are ones I've seen and haven't put the dvd archives made for them away yet... Can't promse they're truely unique to you nor enjoyment or a less likely chance of them being seen. I do not keep tabs on who watches what besides those you can't help but notice such as oh...naruto and bleach for example. Though you're welcome to skip the series below if that's not good enough though it is possible to be helpful to atleast one person so i shall post anyhow for their sake. And note these are ones I enjoyed enough to archive rather than delete to ensure I don't accidently watch it and suffer again so if anything, they're worth a try if you have nothing better to do than insult each other on the forums.



Black Cat

Gunslinger Girl (Might be decently watched accually though it's a bit along the lines of unique on the way the storyline is. Won't pleased everyone if that's what you define unique as but I felt it was worth the effort to watch even if not the greatest)

Read or Die TV (Same as above though more enjoyible I'd think for most ppl and a whole 26 eps long *swoon*)

Suzuka (Not sure why, was merely an avg love story romance kinda thing but I felt it was a rather decent story. Perhaps my idea of uniqueness comes from the captivating story. If you're not too manly to watch Love Hina or Amaenaideyo type animes and use fanservice as your reason, then perhaps this might keep ya busy for a lil while.)

Well thats all, I don't feel like moving lots of things to get into the dvds way across the room. I've had a long day and if i stand up, i'm going straight to bed so sorry. Hope this helps atleast one person find something new and hopefully more fighting rather than real conversation is taken to PMs unless ya attach it to some series. If you want to waste the time of others not being addressed in the fighting, then atleast be considerate enough to post another series or two instead of merely space out the distance between someone else's listings. Might not be the best way to do things but it atleast makes the posts somewhat constructive to the thread itself and helpful to everyone, not only yourself.

Nice post, lvl.

I said repeatedly that FMA isn't bad - aside from that horrible ending. A long series is usually great for establishing setting and character. While the setting was done well, the characters...well, thank God I don't ever have to listen to "Eddo! Al-u!" ever again if I choose not to.

Won't comment heavily on Naruto as I've never made it through a complete episode, nor do I care to. I don't give the creators a lot of credit though - it is deceptively easy to form a concept that appeals to a lot of people. They get credit for good marketing, not good quality.

As for a contribution to the unique anime: Shinigami no Ballad. Damn good show.

Hrmm, unique anime eh? I have this feeling that I've watched a couple of them but the only thing that comes to mind that I've watched recently is:

Yakitate Japan!

The anime is about the highly exciting, the highly dangerous, the highly exotic world of bread making!

The manga is great too if you want to check it out.

Im sure what is best or even what is good is for over 50% a question of
personal taste. You can easily learn this from the AniDB User Reviews. What
is pure enjoyment for one is pure boredom for another. And me thinks this
is a good thing.
