I watched the 1st season of Kengan Ashura. TBH it wasn't too bad (for an anime with virtually no story line other than SF V fight scenes montage).

Gentlemen, any RECOMMENDATIONS as far as Netflix' Anime Section is considered (other than 7Seeds, One-Punch Man, Neon Genisys Evangelion, Death Note or Fullmetal Alchemist) ?


Levius caught my attention. Has anyone seen it? Is it worth watching?
@Adrian
Yo! Sorry for being late amigo.

I’ve watched one called Kuromukuro. Mecha fights and romance. It’s not bad. Of course Gurren Lagann is un clásico.
I’ve also seen Aldnoah.zero (ΛLDNOΛH.ZERO). It’s alright, but the other two are better.
If one is really desperate, there is Sword Art Online.

If I was into emoticons, I'd use at least five of the ones puking.

(I actually did watch the first two seasons of that, but it is so unashamedly based on the slightly disturbing fantasies of teenage gamers that I'm sort of amazed I made it that far).

I'm watching Kidō Senshi Gandamu Tekketsu no Orufenzu at the moment. The first two episodes have been interesting.

The concept behind SAO is sort of attractive, and has been visited many a time by the well-regarded .hack franchise (haven't seen/read/played any of which myself); the problem is just that it so quickly devolves into huzubando-to-waifu territory. It's pretty much weebo-erotica molded hastily into an adventure show, much like Darling in the Franxx.

Haven't been watching much animorphs lately (or rather, it's the same old schlock), but I did just get my hands on the blu-ray of Isao Takahata's Princess Kaguya, which is sure to be a rollicking fucking masterpiece. Love my man Isao (not to be confused with his biblical counterpart), and the art is so biyūchifuru, desu ka ne?

Currently watching Kimetsu no Yaiba and Vinland Saga weekly.
I watched first episode of Vinland Saga yesterday. It left a positive impression on me (I guess I'll watch more episodes if time allows).
Thank you for mentioning it.

If it’s done right, that’ll be a hit!

Dammitall, @Laurentius, at length I have to ask. Where'd you get that avatar?

No way! That's what it reminded me of, but I thought 'nah, why would an anime do that?' That's wacky.

Issacus Divus dixit:
GT was kinda entertaining at times though.
Yeah, the big gripe about GT isn't at all valid. Dragon Ball is, and has always been, a goofy show that doesn't take itself too seriously. Just look at Goku, the centerpiece: he's a goddamn baffoon.
Pan is a cute character, and her Japanese voice is really excellent (so it overrides Goku's shitty old woman voice), and, best of all, watching GT is essentially watching Crono Trigger: the Anime (Goku = Crono, Pan = Luca, Giru = Robo).

On the anime front, I've been sticking mostly with the oldies, as usual:
There's Cat's Eye, which is a cute little play on the Japanese 喝 katsu (an exclamatory word used in martial arts) and Sino-Japanese 愛 ai for 'love'.
There's good ol' Urusei Yatsura, the 2nd movie of which I just watched with a pal on RetroCrush, which looks like a pretty good service.

Then there's the bastardly Monogatari series, which I can't recommend to anyone despite its merits 'cause it leans very heavily into the whole loli-sibling-senpai high-school-harem shitstorm that most anime endorses.

Also, there's the animesque [adult swim] show Ballmastrz: 9009, which is free on their website. Top-notch, goes without saying.

I've been watching 空挺ドラゴンズ (Kuutei Dragons). The idea is interesting, but the animation is terrible and the plot increasingly meaningless. I have watched over five members of what is nominally my species be butchered and eaten by some clueless humans without them showing so much as a shrug of remorse, and I am glad that there are only three episodes left.
