Maybe I need to watch the scenes with the family living happily together a few more times for it to sink in.

    Needless to say, the next few animes I'm watching will be cheerful ones.

    The episode where everything gets fixed pissed me off so much. I want to think it never existed. Should have ended with loli dropping to the ground. Would have been so much better than that shit they pulled with dragonballs.


    Also second Mondaiji.

    Just a heads up, I think the Anime Chat Thread is a better place for that discussion.

    He is far from Overpowered if you look at how many of the characters in that universe are stronger than him.


    Although its most definitely worth watching, favourite show of Winter 2013 for me.

    really? far from overpowered?
    he takes on gods and demons and wrecks them.

    his ability is the ability to negate any gift and destroy anything on earth under heaven

    i don't know how much more overpowered it gets than that.

    weak gods, yes.


    He's like a freshly dinged lvl 85 in greens beating up low level characters, while the strongest characters are lvl 90's in BiS gear from SoO HC.

    If there's one saving grace for that ending, it's that the undiagnosable/untreatable illness that Nigasa and Ushio get is it's own special case of bullshit. Having Ushio taken by an illness that doctors have NFI about was hard to swallow as it was.

    There are plenty of deaths caused by cases that are undiagnosable that doctors have NFI what it's about. It's also not radical to think it could be hereditary. Should have left it at that and done without the BS bring them back.

    What's up with the negate abilities recently, anyway? Ever since To Aru series started and probably even before that every second anime with supernatural powers has an protagonist/anti-hero/whatever with similar "power" and other than that they're weak as hell.

    Seems like a fancy trend.

    Steins;Gate is quite possibly my absolute favourite anime.

    It goes well with role fulfilment ideals; a lot of people (otaku more particularly) may not be able to relate with a super-powered guy who gets the girl, or is cool because of his super powers. But a normal guy, who uses his brain and drain ability to bring people down to his level, that's more fulfilling for some people. Certain demographics and abilities/stories/archetypes move in and out of popularity, so the guys funding anime series will make sure they know what's currently trending.

    Ahhhh damn think I saw this one already...This is Problem Children isn't it? Crap needed a series like this one again....Just finished Campione a second time as well....

    BTW if anyone wants OP OP then check out things like the Tenchiverse(OVAs and Dual specifically as well as Isekai aka Geminar)...

    Then there is Ichibasn Ushiro no Daimaou, Needless, Hellsing(I suggest Ultimate), Aesthetics of a Rogue Hero and MANY others...Give me time and I can likely find more from my shelves alone....

    As for why drain has become so popular it's probably because it's the new it thing...Every so often we get an "it" thing be it settings, power/character types and so on. Besides not half as common as some other things have been.

    As far as the TV series goes he is certainly OP though...Remember they often don't get into the meat till second or third seasons.

    Oh and add Legend of Legendary Heroes to that list of OP as fucking hell protagonists...Then Slayers with Lina Inverse.

    ok, guys I NEED some anime to watch after a very long time not watching one. Being unemployed grants too much free time

    I've watched (in no particular order):

    Fairy Tail, Death Note, Cardcaptor Sakura, Pokemon, Digimon, Ao-no Exorcist, Yugioh, Sword Art Online... I must have watched more, but I can't bring them up atm, it's rather late.

    I generally like:
    Anything magical/magey, card games, mages, some humour, drama, the friendship concept. I'd also be very open to horror and dark themes.

    I generally don't like:
    Futuristic stuff when the whole thing is based on such a theme, meaning that if the story itself has nothing to do with the post-modern etc theme while the setting is in it, I got no prob. Pure romance animes (I am on the edge about that one, since I haven't ever watched any because I got this negative predisposition of thinking about them being a waste of time somehow... it's automated, don't judge me).

    What I would like to watch is something magey, with romance involved (think of something like fairy tail, where the romance is constantly dropped for example). I'd like to instead watch some development on the subject and not 176 episodes of Gray not getting that he's liked by Juvia.

    Slayers and Rune Soldier Louie for classics...Also Lodoss war for playing straight.

    Then harem wise Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou(ok more sci fi fantasy hybrid but it has a drill breathing dragon and a demon lord who bears him in a brawl) and Aesthetics of a Rogue Hero.

    Also there is Campione, Soul Eater, Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles(related to CCS), Orphen, Negima, Escaflowne, Full Metal Alchemist, Log Horizon which is airing right now, provides you don't mind some Yaoi stuff there is Kyo Kara Maoh

    Oh Nabari no Ou should work as should Tales of the Abyss....

    Tower of Druaga and the Legend of Legendary Heroes as well LOL.


    Oh and in the sci fi fantasy vein look into Broken Blade...More fantasy then sci fi...

    Ronin Warriors

    Shakugan no Shana

    Sorcerer Hunters

    .Hack series

    annnd those should keep you going for awhile LOL.

    Oh almost forgot Problem Children Are coming from another world aren't tjey.

    I found the last one (Little Garden?) yesterday and started watching it. Seems generally nice! Thanks for all the recommendations. Will be sure to check them out. Could you please be so kind to provide me with a very good watch online anime site for personal use? I'm getting rather tired of the bad quality in randoms.

    Not really allowed here but if you like to stream slme can be found on crumchyroll and a few Funimation some are older and out of print/license hell so may need to say use idiotbt(well known torrent site and no not it's actual name) to find a few.

    Will also recommend:
    For most current individual episodes 480/720/1080 releases(torrents): http://www.nyaa.se/?page=search&cats...filter=0&term=
    Huge library of full seasons of anime(torrents): http://bakabt.me/browse.php
    Or if your into streaming: http://www.goodanime.net/anime-list
    First of all you should not link illegal websites, even though many most likely use it. Oh and don't use GoodAnime, use something like Crunchyroll instead. Way better quality.

    Also i noted that Baccano! and Durarara was not on your list. I can wholeheartedly recommend those two (Baccano! more so).
