I loved Digimon as a kid. Recently I tried watching the first two seasons again, but they were completely unwatchable: as you went on there were so many evolution sequences that they could take up half an episode, the music was horrible and they just regurgitated the same songs every episode, there were no stakes of any kind. None of these things mattered when I was younger, but I couldn't ignore them now, and I just had to stop watching. It was completely on a whim that I took up Tamers after that, but I wasn't expecting much. As you can probably tell from the read more

I really loved this anime. I loved the original version too. They're very different stories after the first few episodes so if you're planning on watching either, I'd recommend you see both.
The original Fullmetal Alchemist is much darker and quite slowly paced at times, but the characters are developed superbly, and you have sympathy for the villains which is always a good thing in my opinion :) The ending fits well with the tone of the series although a lot of people were unhappy about it, but the movie sequel helps somewhat.
Brotherhood, on the other hand, has a much more fast moving plot and read more

At first, I was a little wary of this show. I hadn't seen much by way of racing anime before, but what I had seen had pretty much been along the lines of "adrenaline adrenaline who-cares-about-plotline-anyway adrenaline". However, it just happened to be on TV one day when there was nothing else on, so why not?
Little did I know that this would be one of my all-time favourite shows.
The characters are all really well brought to life. Every racer has it's own reasons for competing, from aiding their planet's conquest, to helping their people to rebuild, to bringing a loved one back to life. This read more

This is an amazingly beautifuly written manga.

The story is very simple: a girl called Saya travells in search of her fiancee who didn't return after a war he was fighting in ended, and finds that many things about him have changed. It's a simple setting, but the plot twist at the end, although sudden, is both impossible to predict and it doesn't seem out of place with the rest of the story. I'm usually wary about one-shots, but this story was really well thought through.
The art was really beautiful. None of it seemed in any way rushed. A definate read more
