Hope you enjoy Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai. It's been a long time since I watched it, but I remember being thoroughly disturbed, in a good way.

I finally downloaded FLCL Alternative, so I'll be watching it soon. Maybe this weekend!

I watched the old version first before I watched 2011. It's easier for me to understand it.
I agree! To me, it is the best battle Shonen too! Hunter X Hunter is my top 1 favourite anime! σ(≧ε≦o)

The first time I encountered anime was when I was in High school. In our film class, we watched Spirited Away. I was amazed by the animation! It was an old school animation, but damn, I was hooked up. After watching almost all of the Studio Ghibli films, I move to anime series like Mister Ajikko, Yaki-tate!! Japan, Yume-iro Pâtissière, Moyashimon, and so on. (then I move to manga) I'm open to any anime, yet my priority was anime related to cooking. Right now, I'm not too obsessed, unlike before.

Kino's Journey and Spice & Wolf. I'll check both of this out! Thank you for sharing it with me! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*
I am into the idea of old Europe culture like Emma: A Victorian Romance, Snow White with the Red Hair, or The Heroic Legend of Arslan. I'm interested in that type of anime. I guess (to me) it's refreshing to watch. (or maybe because I'm obsessed with Art History) (≧艸≦*)

Hello! ∠( ᐛ 」∠)_
I'm doing alright! Thank you for asking~
oh nice! I don't play Final Fantasy but I enjoyed watching the walkthrough of the game on YouTube.
I've been playing The Sims 4 (I'm obsessed with the it)
I've been rewatching Hunter X Hunter and reading lots of Isekai Manga mainly related to food.
I have been enjoying reading Isekai Omotenashi Gohan, Accomplishments of the Duke's Daughter, and Regarding the Display of an Outrageous Skill Which Has Incredible Powers.
I'm a sucker for manga related to adventure, no world ending pressure, interesting powers, and cooking.

oh! I haven't heard of Kino's Journey, so I'll definitely check it out. Thank you for sharing it! (•́⌄•́๑)૭✧

Me giving Mai-HIME a one may be a bit of an overreaction. My rating was wavering between 4-6 until the final seven or so episodes. It was at that point where my rating slowly fell from four to three to two and at the very end of the last episode a very angry one.

Also, my rating system can be quite vague; basically my thoughts on anime that I rated between 2-4 can be anywhere from, "entertaining lowbrow-garbage" to "unwatchable, rage inducing garbage" to "I hate this, but I'm probably being irrational/can understand the appeal of the show" to "I can't admit to actually somewhat enjoying this, minus arbitrary shame points." Basically what I'm saying is 1. My rating system is shit, and 2. I wouldn't prioritize watching Mai-HIME, since there are a lot of similar anime out there, however, I also wouldn't say that it's not worth watching.

I often write down some of my thoughts after finishing an anime, so if you want to know more about what I thought, here are my personal notes on Mai-HIME; please keep in mind this is essentially an unfiltered me ranting to my future self.



Anime within the same realm as Mai-HIME, i.e., Magical Girls deconstructions (and I'm using the word deconstruction very lightly)/Cute Girls Do Suffering/Young Adolescents Do Suffering, that I'd suggest watching first are:

Madoka Magica - Which I see you've already watched.

Selector Infected WIXOSS (S1)/Selector Spread WIXOSS (S2) - If you do watch this, don't bother with the sequel Lostorage Incited WIXOSS/Lostorage Conflated WIXOSS; they're terrible.

Black★Rock Shooter (TV) - Don't watch the OVA, it's god awful, completely unrelated, and lacks everything that made the TV series any good. I also really, reallllly disliked the ending of the TV series ~eps6-8. Despite that, I thought the first five or six episodes had some really fascinating + believable psychological writing—well, for the most part; one of the characters was wonderfully sadistic for no clear reason, which could have easily bothered me had the rest of the writing not been so solid. Obviously this is subjective, as I've seen people criticize the show for its characters, but I thought they were believable, easy to empathize with, and both likeable & dislikable all at the same time!

Bokurano - Overwhelmingly nihilistic, so much so that the story in the anime was slightly altered by the director because he personally hated the manga, which he admitted to publicly after mentioning how he asked the mangaka if he could "maybe save a few of the children." Many people, including myself, think the manga is better, however I don't share their opinion that the anime is bad.

Alice to Zouroku - It's an unconventional magical girls show, I think? But more lighthearted than the rest of what I'm listing.

Jinrui - Deceptively nihilistic, offbeat comedy that really shines during its last few episodes, which may make you want to read the light novel.

Flip Flappers - It's my favorite twist on the "Magical Girls" genre, though come to think of it, I don't think I've ever actually watched a traditional Magical Girls show. Oh well.

Shadow Star Narutaru - A pretty divisive mess of ideas and I'm weary to recommend it. I personally thought it had a lot going for it and found it to be a worthwhile watch—as disjointed as it was. It's by the same mangaka as Bokurano, so for some people it may come off needlessly cruel and nihilistic.

I just wanted to say thank you for writing that MAL Community Survival Guide—it's all too true.

This one in particular got me good; I just couldn't contain my laughter.

20. When in doubt, bash Boku no Pico- Because while being a pedophile is perfectly acceptable, being gay isn’t. So who’d want to watch a show about a gay pedophile? That’s horrible and stupid, and those people are horrible and stupid. Laugh at them.

Finished watching alot. The recent being Your Lie In April. I updated my profile yestersday so go ahead and look at my anime history for my recent updates.... ^_^

Ahhh... Its in my Plan to Watch list.
RyuNamikaze Mar 10, 11:57 PM
Hi there... ^_^
Josh Mar 5, 6:51 PM
Thanks for the recs. I'll be trying those out. Currently making my way through Philip Pullman's La Belle Sauvage. It's alright. Have you read His Dark Materials?
Josh Feb 21, 4:37 PM
No worries. As you can probably tell, it sometimes takes me quite a while to respond!

I like those genres too, though I haven't read much horror as far as I can recall. I read and enjoyed Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer a lot, but couldn't get into the sequel. Ray Bradbury is great. H.P. Lovecraft has been on my to-read list forever and I don't have any good excuse for still not having tried his stuff! Would you recommend any H.P. Lovecraft or Edgar Allan Poe in particular? I've also never read a wuxia novel before, but Legend of the Condor Heroes sounds pretty fun. Wuxia films always are.

I've noticed that many of my favourites in recent years, including Annihilation, have had a hostile/incomprehensible nature theme or "mother nature strikes back" kind of thing going on, e.g. Ice by Anna Kavan and The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin.

hi! how are you? do you any underrated anime I should check out?
Josh Feb 12, 7:46 PM
"I'm a big dork who likes anime, games, fiction and other nerdy crap."

What kind of fiction are you into?
