this isn't an option, it's mandatory.

Scryed is the greatest series ever made, a masterful work of art made exponentially better by a stellar dub and a Pulitzer-worthy script.

ITT let us discuss this magnificent feat of animation.

I like it better now that it's Needless.
My first novel, Kardia has been published! Click here to read!

Every time you recommend Sword Art Online, a baby seal gets clubbed.

Sorry, just had to quote that. ;-P

Shouldn't this be moved to the series discussion boards, though?

Hell naw, the Scryed board has like three posts to it. This is a thread and show that should be exposed to everyone. edit: btw you should read Planetes and then watch it. the manga is AAA+++

GOOD! THAT'S JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT!

Scryed is one of the best shows of the past 20 years. If you don't like Scryed, you are a communist.

A COMMUNIST.

edit: Heh. Moved already.

Indeed. And thus it is so.

I actually have it in my backlog, but know nothing about it... will just get around to it eventually.

I think I actually watched Episode 5 (or the one after that one--I really can't remember) with my grandmother of all people.

I really should finish this series someday...

I personally don't understand why everyone thinks this was so cool. I found the ending to be horrible, I was expecting something conclusive concerning the mainland and what I found was a completely pointless battle between two people that could have been using their powers for much more useful things. Overall the series was mildly entertaining but you would truly have to be a simpleton to think this is a super awesome series as the only things it has going for it is semi-cool characters that are really strong. I prefer more depth and intelligence to my characters rather than a philosophy of "well I don't know how to do anything else so I'll just fight everything I see and I'm sure it'll work out alright."

i don't think you can handle more "depth and intelligence" ify ou couldn't even grasp Scryed tbh

The entire series was about Kazuma and Ryuho, their characters and their polarity. There was nothing left open about the mainland conflict either. The Lost Ground gained independence and Kazuma/Ryuho kick their asses to this day, the end. Seriously, there's nothing to interpret there.

then again you have Code Geass as a 10, and every character in that show had the intelligence and consistency of Zapp Brannigan or was some sort of shallow gimmick persona. PROTIP: just because you have "morally ambiguous" characters in a series doesn't make it intelligent or deep.

i mean dear god you have Trinty Blood as a 10 too. that show being a worthless pile of shit isn't even up for debate. what is wrong with you

No, Ram, you are the stupids.

It's hilarious that you couldn't wrap your head around a simple story like Scryed and then praise terribly written garbage like Code Geass. Most of that story probably flew over your head, and so you think it's "deep". And then there's Trinity Blood with barely any semblance of a story to begin with(not to mention what little it had was petty plagiarism), and no ending to boot.

You suck.

s-CRY-ed is one of the worst anime ever made. Okay, not the worst, but now I'll consider it that since you're a fan of it. You have to be one of the most obnoxious, arrogant people on this site. But you are a dub lover, so that's only to be expected. I want to drop the show now, though I won't since I have more respect for it and anime than for people like you. I did start Heroman just so I could drop it and give it a one though, just a little token of my esteem for you and Stan Lee. You can reply but I won't come back here so it doesn't matter.

"omgrds u liek GORO TANIGUCHI'S Geass. ur Sooo stupid u can't git the stublities of the coMPLexities of the awsumness of scryed and steve bloom and omg crisper freerman111 lolololololoooo"

I'd like to know exactly why you don't like it. It's one of my favorites so I'm genuinely interested on that point.

And I'm sorry you feel that all Scryed fans are obnoxious and arrogant, but since you're the one that's coming into our forum and flaming us about our favorite anime I think it's safe to assume that you are far more obnoxious and arrogant than any of us, and if you think I'm obnoxious and arrogant for attacking you like that then just ask yourself which of us is more obnoxious, the attacker or the counter attacker? If you have any sense at all then you would understand my point.

And I don't know what you mean by dub lover, over 80 percent of my anime have been subbed and almost all the vast majority of my dubbed anime come from when I was a kid and watched anime on TV, meaning I didn't even know about the dubbed/subbed thing.

Naah... it's good they had three-of-a-kind to make a masterpiece, but when they called the cards other dude had full house.

Basically I think they messed up when they had a plot not so often used a good artwork, but somehow it just didn't come out as an extraordinarily good or hardly as a master piece. I found it entertaining yet, somehow tiring.

just finished scryed and I have to say
this was the perfect time to watch it
almost all the animes this season are plain moe whatever stuff so scryed was a perfect change of pace
and now I got a new favorite character
Couger
he's fast (in everything). powerful, funny and died(I guess) a noble death.
all in all it was a good ride
now I need something like this to watch
anyone got any suggestion ?

It's bad because it's simple. The reason the two characters fight is stupid. If I want to want overpowering fights, I'll watch DBZ. Now why would Code Geass suck if it's rank 11 and Scryed is rank 1155?

Try Mobile Fighter G Gundam. It has the same director as Scryed, and it kind of has the same feel. (it is kind of old though)
EDIT: Nevermind.....I see you've already seen it.

Or you could always try reading the Scryed manga. It has a different story from the anime so it won't be like rewatching the series......you might even find some new reasons to like Cougar. (one warning though, the first few chapters REALLY suck so you might want to skip them)

I agree that the story is absolutely the worst part. It's simple and it's just lacking,

I did, however, think that the characters were fantastic, the action was fantastic, and I thought their powers were really cool.

And the story wasn't really all that bad. I mean, it's not like it's on the same level as Afro Samurai.

I tried searching for it and couldn't find it (online)
I thought that I might find some hints about Kazuma vs Ryuho final fight
or anything that happens after it

Why would anyone voluntarily read the scryed manga for anything but Scheris' boobs? srsly

Now why would Code Geass suck if it's rank 11 and Scryed is rank 1155?

because anime fandom is mindbogglingly terrible
i like the huge difference between the Top Anime and Top Manga pages, where the top anime is almost all pandering garbage with no redeeming value andmost of the top manga is actually good.

wow this thread is full of cunty little trolls.

did you like the snow? you say no. ok, thanks now go away.

no one ever asked for a psychological evaluation of its fans, or the reasons why it went against all of your preferences, which some how means that it objectively sucks.

the trolls and the butthurt viewers that didnt enjoy it. amazing.

Finished s-CRY-ed/scryed/... and I have to say it was just above average, the two mains annoyed me to no end, God, those annoying screams and retarded outbursts.

At least cougar was one of the few that actually used his brain and knew what he was doing. If it wasn't for him this show would just crumble under it's own pile of shit that it is.

Btw, how in the world can the crazy white haired mofo suddenly get into that tunnel like thing in episode 21? From what I recal he can't fucking teleport. That pilar and his location where miles away yet he just got there.

Ryhou is the so called levelheaded and smart one but he did some retarded things himself. Lets not even start on Kazuma.

The way the two characters live gives a very good message: To hell with what society told you to do, live by your own rules, live by the way you want to live and you decide what is good and what is bad.

There are also some minors like:

Never give up
Be more strong. Rebel agains't your weak side
Don't depend of other people, solve your problems by yourself

Besides of his philosophy, the two characters are for me what a man has to be, a lot of battles are really good and the ost is spectacular
They say that to achieve great things one needs to spend about 10000 hours, so as long as one starts and doesn't give up, one will surely make it (Sakurasaku Syndrome - Janome, Wakatake)

A cruel boy told me to once again pick up my dreams. I had had enough of my dreams. I had given up...But you were still nurturing my withered heart (Shigatsu wa kimi no Uso - Miyazono Kaori)

Why does everyone think Cougar died? pretty sure he probably just passed out or such. How would he survive for three entire months, especially after all the hard stuff just passed, then keel over? makes no sense.

Also want to mention, that it was obviously Kazuma who won the last fight, ha


Either way, enough flaming, and enough trolls... You guys surprised im actually talking about the show.. on its own board and thread? WHAT A TWIST

I have to say that this show is one of the worst, most painful, animes I have ever watched from beginning to end.
The story was predictable and boring. The entire time I thought it was going to evolved into something super awesome, or have a great twist. Nope. Nothing but boringness.
Kazuma and Ryuuhou were both so predictable it was laughable.

"I hate you!"
"I hate you more"
"Get out of my way!"
"We have nothing in common!"
"Oh wait we do..."
"Lets be friends but act like tough guys!"
"Yeah, but I only agree because my pride tells me to do so!"
"At least we agree on something!"

In the end, Im glad its over so I can say I watched it, but I plan to NEVER watch it again.
Oh, but Straight Cougar was awesome. The only positive thing about the whole anime.
