PostSubject: Recommendations Wanted   Sun Jan 13, 2008 5:54 pm

It's been...so long, since I last posted around here.
But anyway, I'll get to the point I guess.

Recently, I've been watching/reading a lot of anime/manga. When I say a lot, I mean like...3-4 in a row, which is a lot for me. *shifts eyes*
But anyway, so I've pretty much finished as much as I want of most of them.
1) Gintama (Funny...shounen...me likes)
2) Elfen Lied (it's okay I guess)
3) Fruits Basket (got through like...20 chapters before I got bored; I dared to touch shoujo...)
4) Full Metal Panic (all 3 seasons: total awesomeness)

Needless to say, I'm still liking Full Metal Panic a lot.

But right now, I'm wanting some more variety. So I come here asking for some assistance in recommending some good anime/manga for me.

I'm picky.

I like shounen (give me any shoujo and I won't even glance at it), some mechas (depending on art prettiness and plot), comedy, well-developed characters (I'm not into ditzy cute girls, or weak little boys, or girly boys, or lolita girls), romance (cute stuff, like in Full Metal Panic), and lots and lots of action/violence (too much talking bores me sometimes). Anything with military themes are nice too.
I also prefer good male main characters. *shifts eyes*
Or basically...number of males >= number of females. *shifts eyes and sweats*

I found two I think I might consider next: Busou Renkin, and Darker Than Black.

But is there anything else out there that might fit my interests?

I figure you guys know way more stuff about them than I do, so here I am seeking help. sorry

PS:
I doubt anyone's gonna reply to this for a while, and I hope not. I mean, I need to study for finals.
I'll probably get to them after finals are all over.

Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Code Geass(has mecha), FMA, Dgrayman. you prolly already know most/all of these?

hmm i read and watched part of busou renkin. i thought the manga was better than the anime...duno why. i stopped following it though.
watched a bit of darker than black. i just remember that it was ok....can't seem to remember what it was about right now.

elfin lied still creeps me out
i watched a few episodes of gintama. it's a little funny here and there but i don't get why everyone LOVES it so much.
fruits basket- read and watched a bit. even though i'm a shoujo fan(as well as a shounen fan), this was just..eww to me. it was ok for the first few chaps but the story doesn't move much.

oh, oh! go check out DOGS and the sequel DOGS Bullets & Carnage. domo it's on onemanga and has to be one of the coolest series I've ever picked up. :D the artist definitely goes into my favorites as well. it's only up to volume two though it has a lot going on. genetic modification, dystopia, awesome gunfights. it's really obscure though, which makes me sad. ;D;

a note, I don't recommend you go for the Darker than Black manga. it's incredibly shoujo-fied. huuargh. I don't know how they did it, it's originally considered a seinen anime. but they did. :B anime's cool though. :D

Wah! Thank you so much everyone!! shock bow

I'm gonna go check out every single one you recommended (or recommended against >_>)

There are some I know or heard of like Cowbow Bebop, and D.Gray Man, but I've forgotten them, so now that I'm reminded, I might go back to them again.

Thanks again, everyone! wink bow
