    Question regarding 'To Aru Kagaku no Railgun'. Does one have to have seen 'Index' or even watch it at all in order to appreciate/enjoy 'Railgun'? If not, would people who have seen both recommend 'Index' anyway?

    I have seen both, and I preferred watching Railgun before Index. It doesn't matter which one you watch first, but Index will make more sense if you watch Railgun first, and Railgun will make more sense once you watch Index.

    Okay, cool. Thanks. =)
    Just didn't really fancy watching another anime with a loli nun (Boku wa <3), especially one that's integral to the story, and the protagonist looks kind of meh.

    I agree, I was disappointed by the episode this week. I was really hoping they'd go into the Committee of 300 a bit more. Hopefully next week.

    Also, new Shin Sekai Yori later today! Wee!

    I've only read up to volume 2 of the Index LN but I am caught up on the Railgun manga (except for the one that came out 1-2 days ago), so this is how I see it:

    You can watch it one of two ways, and both ways work fine. Either the way it was aired or chronologically.

    The way it was aired: Index 1, Railgun, Index 2.
    The way it is chronologically: Railgun, Index 1, Index 2

    The first season of Railgun comes quite before the first season of Index, but the second season of Railgun (which was announced a few weeks ago) will catch up and overlap with Index season 2 (The manga overlaps with the second LN of Index around chapter 32).

    The Index movie is an original work though written by the author of the LN for the movie. I'm venturing a guess that after the movie comes out and Railgun S2 starts Index S3 will be announced.

    UTW almost always has their release out before Saturday. I was using Commie originally, but they make a lot of mistakes on this series for some reason, plus they're slow. (Very uncharacteristic of them)

    Sure Commie releases a lot of shows, but their translations/quality isn't always the best. I love gg because they pick up the shows no one else picks up (which ends up being the best of the season anyways), and EveTaku because they put a lot of quality translations, but UTW has to be the best out there for both their quality, timely manner, and amazing typesetting.

    This looks like it'll be a worthwhile one to watch: Kazuya Murata from FMA and Gen Urobuchi from Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero are scripting what looks to be an original work airing in April.

    Commie just has such a huge staff, so it's tough to get the same consistency smaller groups get. Psycho-Pass, for example, is out very quickly and has very few mistakes. I think they're the only one doing Psycho-Pass, too.

    Also, I love how involved Gen is getting in anime as of late. If we continue getting a release that he's part of every other season, I'm going to be very happy.

    Including Season 2 and the movie?

    Liked K-On more than Spice and Wolf? Blasphemous. My only accepted answer for an anime better than Spice and Wolf is One Piece lol.

    Also, episode 1 of the Shinsekai BD is out for those interested. You'll find it on a certain cat website.

    You're mean for throwing the "all time" clause. I prefer ratings by genre personally.

    #1: Angel Beats. Content Per episode is top tier, characters have depth and are believable, outstanding music, best open ended anime ending ever.

    #2: Eureka 7 Psalm of the Planets: First Shounen coming of age series I watched, still my favorite. Sorry Evangelion fans, but Renton is a mc that doesn't make me want to cut myself

    #3: Trigun. Try to tell me you don't love Vash. I'll cut you, I swear.

    #4: Toradora!. And to think at some point I didn't care for romance/dramas.

    #5: Welcome to the NHK. If you haven't seen it, do so now.

    I don't rank series that are incomplete(Naruto, OP, Bleach, Fairy Tail get benched), and I severely downrank series that grossly overplay certain elements (fanservice, muscles, gore, idiocy). Top anime are those that can cover the whole emotional spectrum, have an engaging cast of characters, simple but effective art (music quality is a plus), and have a good Opening episode(s) and closing.

    Honorable Mention to:
    Persona 4 the Animation for having the best main character based off a silent protagonist in a video game.
    Cowboy Bebop for Best English Dubbed series I've watched.
    Dragon Ball for convincing me in my childhood that Japan was just fucking awesome
