PostSubject: Watched anime list 3   16.02.14 0:29

Once more, the list got too long to edit in new entries, so here's the continued list:






67. Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko - Truth be told, I don't remember exactly where I found this one. That being said, it kind of fits the anime honestly. Denpa Onna is about a young man named Makoto who goes to live with his aunt, Meme. Under the impression that his aunt lives alone, he is surprised to see a young girl in his aunt's house who seems to live there. Strangely enough, her aunt doesn't seem to acknowledge the girl's existence. What's even more strange, is the fact that this girl wears a futon over her body, concealing all but her legs and the very top of her head. Makoto later discovers that this girl is in fact Meme's daughter, Erio. He also discovers that Erio believes herself to be an alien, does not attend school, and apparently is a pariah of sorts in the city. In his new home, Makoto must now adjust to the city, his self-proclaimed alien cousin, and his adolescence. Makoto is seemingly obsessed with his adolescence, or more specifically, the preservation of it. He even goes as far as to keep track of "adolescence points" based on his daily activities (tallied up at the end of the credits on each episode, for fun). The anime is about Makoto and his new life in this new city, his relationship with his cousin, and so forth. Along the way, he makes friends with a friendly girl named Ryuuko, and a costume enthusiast named Maekawa. I suspected the anime was going to be good, and it actually was pretty good. I really can't find anything wrong with it except for an odd arch it takes up near the end. Otherwise, I really liked the dynamic relationship between Makoto and Erio, and Erio's overall character development. Not to reveal any spoilers, but I particularly liked the ending, it definitely wraps up the series well, and was interesting and over the top enough to be a satisfying conclusion. And like with many series, I really liked the opening animation and song, and the ending as well really. Overall, I just really liked the series, and the ending wrapped it up well. I definitely suggest giving it a watch. ...... 7/10

And we have another contender for cutest anime girl, Erio Touwa. She is by far the cutest out of all of them I have listed thus far. Sorry Sena, sorry Eru, sorry Fino, Erio is just so fucking cute she beats all of them, not only in looks, but behavior as well.

Erio cutest anime girl ever edition (actually a spoiler):
 


68. Sword Art Online - Sword Art Online was one of those animes where I've heard about it a few times, but honestly didn't know much if anything about. I ended up watching it because it aired on tv and caught my interest a few episodes in. Sword Art Online is a virtual reality game in which you play in a fantasy world not unlike any other MMORPG game. Each player has a headset that is used to neurologically enter the world of SAO and, play the game. Upon playing SAO, the players are gathered in the game and are told something unexpected; they must beat the game in its entirety, or remain trapped within. The players confirm this when they discover that their log out function has disappeared from their in-game interface. However, this is not the worst news. They are also told that if they die in the game, their Nerve Gear, the headsets they use to interface into SAO, will kill them in real life using a built-in microwave system. The story follows a player named 'Kirito', and his quest to escape SAO. Kirito meets new people along the way, and becomes as strong as he can, just to escape SAO. The story actually seemed pretty boring to me until I started watching a bit deeper into the show. Then it actually got decently interesting and held my attention for the most part. Without spoiling anything, I can say that more happens in the anime than you really think would, which I liked. Kirito was cool and such. It was good, and I suggest watching it if you like videogames or fantasy. ..... 6.5/10

Kirito:
 


69. Soul Eater - I've known about Soul Eater for some time, but didn't actually go to watch it until it aired on tv. Soul Eater follows more or less 3 pairs of students studying to become Soul Reapers... I mean Meisters. Each group consists of one Meister and one Weapon, where the Weapon is a person who can become a weapon of sorts, and the Meister wields them. They attend an academy in Death City, run by the Grim reaper himself. Among these three groups are Soul (a scythe) and Maka, Black Star and Tsubaki (a bladed weapon that can change form), and Death the Kid (son of the grim reaper, go figure) and his weapons Liz and Patty (a pair of pistols). There are many other Weapons and Meisters, but these are the main 3 groups. At this academy, the students learn how to combat evil souls that may become what is known as a Kishin, essentially a being of pure evil. In this world, souls can be physically touched, and take the form of a small ball when the body dies. Weapons eat evil souls when they defeat them, and evil beings/souls eat good souls. There's quite a bit about this series I could say, but there's honestly too much to just fit into a small space. Like Death the Kid's suicidal obsession with symmetry, or Maka's daddy issues, or Black Star's desire to surpass god, or perhaps the fact that Death likes to karate chop people in the head if they irritate him. Sticking with the important bits, there is a Kishin soul trapped below the school which the reaper keeps constant guard over so it may not be released, and there are individuals in the world who desire to release it to use its power. Likewise, without revealing any spoilers, the Kishin, Asura, probably has to be one of my favorite villains now. And being entirely focused around madness as a weapon/theme for a villain was also interesting. So yeah. But to be honest, the ending kind of felt out of place and.... dumb. But, given that the rest of the series is good, you can't really judge it too much based on a weird twist at the very end of the series in the last episode no less. I enjoyed it and suggest giving it a watch. ..... 6.5/10

Asura:
 


70. Mirai Nikki - Just sort of randomly stumbled upon Mirai Nikki and the plot happened to catch my attention. Mirai Nikki got really interesting really fast. And stayed that way. Mirai Nikki is about a student named Yukiteru, or Yuki for short. Yuki keeps to himself and doesn't really have any friends, writing in his cellphone diary about the random things that happen around him. Yuki has an imaginary friend, too, which he talks to when he gets home. His imaginary friend is Deus, the god of time and space. One day, Deus speaks with Yuki about a game he wants to play. In this game, Yuki's cellphone will gain the ability to predict the future, told in the same way he writes his diary. Others will be given this same gift, and whoever is the last one alive, will inherit Deus's position of god of time and space. Soon, Yuki comes to realize something. Deus isn't his imaginary friend, but the one and only god himself, a tangible being able to manipulate the universe to his liking. And now Yukiteru is in a real life and death game for his life. In this game, Yuki discovers that there may only be one person that he can call an ally, a stalker who is obsessed with him named Yuno. This anime was great, and I liked everything about it. Even the ending was great, which you don't come by too often. It's really dark and just well written. Great characters and such as well, with a nice and fresh, original plot. Also, dat plot twist. .... 7/10

Yuki:
 
Yuno:
 
Deus Ex Machina:
 


71. Clannad - (This review covers both Clannad and Clannad: Afterstory) Well, Clannad has been on my to-watch list for quite awhile now honestly. It caught my attention being regarded as one of the saddest anime in existence. However, I put it off because of a number of reasons, some of which being that there were other anime I wanted to watch, Clannad is a little long, and well, the way they draw the spacing in the girls' eyes in Clannad was just ungodly strange (but after about 5 episodes, my brain actively began ignoring that tidbit, so it wasn't an issue anymore). I finally picked it up, and began watching it. I was -quite- surprised when I began watching it and found it to be, surprise, a comedy. More specifically, it was a slice of life highschool anime. I knew it was a highschool anime, but it was quite silly and light-hearted. And actually, Clannad stays light-hearted through just about the entire series. Yes, you heard me correctly. Now then, I made two points above I'd like to touch on: 1, Clannad is long, and 2, Clannad is held to be one of the saddest anime in existence. Clannad is one of the more unique anime I've watched, in that the way it is put together, it just has this enigmatic substance that binds it together making it something of an... I don't know how to put it, but let me explain. Clannad is long, and Clannad is sad. But Clannad doesn't really get sad until the end, where everything accumulates together. It doesn't force the sadness on you, it comes naturally, because of everything that has happened up until that point. It is unique, in that it doesn't over-dramatize it, it's just sad because of what has happened, and because it's realistic. It's not over the top, and if it weren't somewhat supernatural, I'd say that Clannad has a very real plot. Toward the end, I was actually irritated and was about to go and give it a lower score for an Evangelion-like ending (the original Evangelion, not the movies), where it sort of stops the plot stuff and starts delving into theoretical nonsense. However, after watching all of it, I realized I was very wrong about my assumptions, and that -literally- every episode of the anime is important to the plot, save for the last episode in season 1 where it's a random side-arch. I almost skipped the last episode because it was a recap episode, but I watched it anyway just because I'm a completionist. That one episode was probably one of the most important, because it ties everything together, and affirms certain details that were previously left unexplained fully. The anime is very sad, but it is sad because of the entire anime as a whole. You really need to watch all of it for it to take effect, otherwise you just have pieces of it that don't amount to much. Well, I've gone on long enough about the series as a whole, here's the actual premise: Clannad follows Tomoya Okazaki and his life through highschool (and Clannad: Afterstory follows his life after highschool). Tomoya is a delinquent, and likes to skip class and pal around with his buddy Youhei Sunohara, also a delinquent. Tomoya hates his city, and his school. His mother is dead, and he hates his father, of whom which he lives with, alone. Tomoya is walking to school one day when he sees a girl wearing his school's uniform, standing in the middle of the path. She randomly says "Sweet bean bread", and she has Tomoya's attention. For some reason unknown to Tomoya, he speaks to her, letting her know that they're going to be late. They then walk to school. He learns that her name is Nagisa Furukawa, and that she has no friends. He also learns that she wants to re-start the school's drama club. Against his normal way of life, Tomoya decides to help her restart the club. Clannad continues from there with the gaining of new friends, and Tomoya's life past this point. Any additional information would be a spoiler. Clannad is just very... special. I'm not completely certain how, it's just something about it that makes it really stand out, and you don't really get this feeling until you've seen all of it. It's the only anime I've ever seen that's like that. Along the way, many new characters are introduced, all of them important and special. I really wish I could explain the anime in more detail, as there's a lot I want to talk about with it, but I'm not going to spoil anything. And yeah, it is one of the saddest anime. I can attest to this, it just takes awhile to get there. I can't say any more without spoiling, and if I continue talking about it at all, I'll ramble on forever, so I'll cut it off here. Clannad is special, and you have to take it all in for it to show it. To summarize the series, Clannad is about friends, family, gain, loss, and sacrifice. ........ 7.5/10

72. Shinsekai Yori - First off, let me just say that this was one of the most interesting anime I've seen in awhile. A lot of anime I've seen have been good, but none so simply interesting as Shinsekai Yori. I found this one randomly on Myanimelist and I'm really glad I did. Shinsekai Yori translates to "From the New World". Psychokinetics (people with the ability to move things with their mind) suddenly began surfacing in modern society, these Psychokinetics ran rampant, destroying and killing to their heart's content, as no one was able to stop them. It is after the world ended and society has reformed that Shinsekai Yori takes place. It is 1,000 years in the future, and the only humans who remain are those with Psychokinesis, now called Cantus. Society is entirely different now, with the primary focus being on schooling, teaching students about how to use their Cantus, and how to work together as a society. There are no electronics anymore, and the only power is produced by a water wheel that gives lights in the library and other important buildings electricity. Society has essentially reverted, and focuses more on the spiritual side of things now, and not on the material. Humans are unable to use their Cantus on other humans, and are also unable to harm fellow humans. The main village the anime takes place in is surrounded by a holy barrier that keeps all kinds of supernatural things and creatures out. Nonetheless, it focuses on a character named Saki, and her life in this village. It follows Saki as her Cantus develops, and she attends school. She is placed in a group of students, of whom she befriends and becomes very close with. Among those friends, are Satoru, an energetic and mischievous boy, Maria, a popular and talented girl, Shun, the smartest of the group and most composed, and Mamoru, the least talented and very shy and timid boy. The anime essentially follows this group and their lives, centering around their experience with school and their lives as a whole. Unfortunately, I can't say much about the anime without spoiling it, other than it is a heavily supernatural mystery horror anime. And despite my references to the school aspect of it, do not be mistaken, this is not a highschool anime. It was honestly just great, and the story was excellent. I loved the mystery and horror aspects, as well as the aspects that make you question everything. And the ending was good too, which is rare in a lot of cases. I recommend this anime to anyone and everyone, as it was just simply fantastic. ........8/10

73. Nagi no Asukara - First off, fuck Nagi no Asukara. With that being said, Nagi no Asukara is not a bad anime. No, not at all. It's pretty good actually. Not the best, but not the worst. But before I explain 'Fuck Nagi no Asukara', allow me to explain what it's about. Humans once lived in the sea, but now are divided between living in the sea and living on the surface. Humans who live in the sea have a gift bestowed to them by the sea god called Ena, an invisible (albeit shiny and rainbow-colored when light hits it at a certain angle) layer of nearly intangible material that enshrouds their entire body, allowing them to not only breathe and speak freely underwater, but also allows them to move and run underwater, unrestricted. Humans who moved to the surface cast away their Ena, never able to return to the sea (seeing that they are no longer able to breathe). The humans who live in the sea live almost the same as those on the surface, they have houses, sidewalks, and they even have fire. The fire is, in actuality, a portion of the sea god's spirit, a blue flame that is able to not only exist underwater, but is able to generate heat and the like. It is used for cooking, lights, etc. The fire is distributed by the sea god's servant, Uroko. Uroko is a scale of the sea god, and has minor deity-like abilities, mostly limited to cursing people who perform misdeeds. Uroko is lazy and a pervert. Now, the story actually follows a boy named Hikari and his group of friends. Hikari and his friends are unable to attend school in the sea, and so must go to the surface to attend school. Being that they are still human, they are able to breathe air just fine. They do however have to get wet with salt water ever so often in order to keep from drying out too much (losing their Ena also makes it so breathing is hard as well). More serious things happen in the anime than I write here, but it's mostly about Hikari and his friends and things they face between the surface and the sea (who are technically feuding, despite their calm nature toward each other). Too much information would be spoiling, so I'll leave it at that. No, it's not exactly a school anime, but it does have a couple school episodes. Now then, allow me to explain why 'Fuck Nagi no Asukara'. Nagi no Asukara is, again, not a bad anime. Until they throw in the fact that (unnamed character) has a crush on (unnamed character). Ok, cool. I don't care, love stories are fine. Then it turns out that the character (unnamed character) has a crush on, has a crush on someone else. Ok, I don't like that kind of crap in stories, but ok, fine, let's see where it goes, anything can be good. Then another character has a crush on another character. And another. And another. And then we have X number of instances where Y characters are experiencing unrequited love, and have a crush on Z characters, and they have a crush on other characters, but they don't like them back, and etc etc. This proceeds until we have a love heptagon. That's right, you read that correctly. Not a love triangle, a love HEPTAGON. A god forsaken LOVE HEPTAGON. WHY?! I found myself verbalizing my displeasure with the heptagon on multiple occasions, literally stating things like "Fuck Nagi no Asukara" and similar things. Nonetheless. I won't go into detail, because unfortunately, unbeknownst to myself at the time, it actually becomes a major part of the story. Who'd have guessed. Overall, Nagi no Asukara is pretty decent, but the love heptagon was basically like nails on a chalkboard for basically the entire duration of the anime. Originally, I was going to rate it lower because it was kind of a punch to the dick I didn't care for, especially when you empathize with most of the characters, likewise getting punched in the dick by the love heptagon. However, the anime was pretty enough and executed well enough with a good enough overall story that I decided not to. So yeah. ....... 6.5/10

74. Ano Hi Mita no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai - Also known as Anohana. Forewarning to those reading this specific review, it will contain a spoiler in a manner of speaking. With that being said, the spoiler is the main focus of the entire series, so it's a little difficult to actually say anything about Anohana without revealing it. With that also being said, the spoiler is revealed in the first episode, and is gradually touched upon through the entire duration of the anime, to its relevance. Past this point in writing the review, the spoiler will be revealed, so if you do not want to be spoiled, stop reading here. The story follows Jinta Yadomi, a -former- highschool student who lives at home with his father. I say Jinta is a -former- highschool student, because he is at the age where he should still be attending highschool, however has decided to simply stop going. Jinta has not dropped out, he has, simply enough, stopped attending school. He lives alone with his father, a very loving and accepting individual who may be considered just a little quirky, but not too much. Jinta also has another person he lives with, Meiko Honma, one of his childhood best friends. Meiko is dead. Jinta knows that Meiko died when they were little, however she is with him nonetheless. Jinta is the only person who can see her, and is conflicted, stuck between believing she is a ghost or delusion. Jinta is unsure which it is, but his feelings are mixed, being happy that she is around, but also feeling terrible that she died, and about the possibility of her being an object of his imagination. It wasn't always this way however, Jinta and Meiko used to be a part of a much larger friend group, self proclaimed to be called the "Super Peace Busters", which consisted of 6 of them when they were little. They were all good friends and hung around all the time in a shack out in the woods that they made into their base. On the day that Meiko died, the group was never the same again, and split up. Several years later in the present, everyone is distant from one another, and Jinta, the would-be leader back when they were kids, is now a loaner who has no friends. Save for Meiko, who has now appeared before him and stays at his house. The story follows Jinta and Meiko as Meiko tries to convince Jinta to get the friend group back together as they used to be, and Jinta tries to grant what he believes to be Meiko's 'last wish' to allow her to rest in peace, believing that she has appeared to him because her spirit cannot rest, however he does not know what that wish is, and neither does she. All the while, Jinta does not know for certain if she is even there, or just a figment of his imagination. Whatever the case may be, he tries nonetheless, albeit at much struggle since the group has drifted apart and distant from one another. The anime is, generally speaking, a drama with a bit of romance. I liked it. Not really any complaints about it. I mean, I've seen better, but it wasn't like it was bad or anything. It was certainly an interesting concept, and was a bit different from what I normally see. Nonetheless. It was good. ........ 6/10

75. Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - In English, the title is roughly "Maoyu: Archenemy & Hero", for those who were curious. This was another one of those that I randomly found on Myanimelist, and it seemed interesting enough, so I figured I'd watch it, being only 12 episodes long. The story begins in a world that seems to be a healthy cross between fantasy (Almost ripped from a D&D like setting) and medieval era real life. It follows a hero and his journey to defeat the Demon King in order to stop the war between humans and demons. As the hero, it is his duty to kill the Demon King in order to bring peace. Upon reaching the Demon King's palace, he is not met by the Demon King he expected, but a beautiful woman who seems almost in love with him. She calls herself the Demon King. Confused, the hero delays his attack, and listens to what she has to say. She explains that she's been waiting for him, and acts somewhat akin to a fan in his presence. It is revealed that, contrary to worldwide belief, she doesn't want the war either, and wants the hero's help in order to stop it. She also goes on to explain that the war is being waged because of economics, and that she has plans on how to stop the war. The Demon King and Hero make a contract to work together, and the series goes from there with the two working together to fix the economy and stop the war. Can't actually say much more than that, with spoilers and such. One rather amusing detail about the series however, is that there are some characters who are named as their title, or as their position. For example, the hero's name is Hero, the Demon King's name is Demon King, and there are also a few others as well, such as Mage, Winter King, and, the name that amuses me the most, Female Knight. If they have any names other than such, then they are mentioned not once in the series. In general, the series is actually pretty good. It's mostly a political anime with a decent amount of fights and such thrown in, a couple wars, etc. I was going to give it more praise, had it not been for the final episode. To put it bluntly, the final episode created more questions/conflicts/issues than it resolved. All the characters seemed to have more personality than they were given screen time for. There was heavy implication that there was more to be seen and done than was shown. The series has no sequel, no prequel, and the manga is only 5 volumes, indicating that it likely doesn't have any more information than the series. Case in point, there is no ending. The ending drops off like any other episode, but it has an air about it that makes it feel like it was purposefully ended there, as opposed to being, idk, a budget cut or something. Don't get me wrong, the series is not bad. But it makes it feel like it's missing a lot, like for example the fact that the Hero has an entire party of fellow adventurers that are supposedly important but maybe get only about a couple minutes of collective screen time in the entire series. And I mean a lot. However, what I did watch was good, and should not be judged poorly simply because it's missing things. And to those who were confused, the Demon King is in fact female, 'Demon King' was an inherited title, as she says. ...... 6.5/10

Hero and Demon King:
 

76. Kyoukai no Kanata - This one actually caught my attention immediately when I first saw it in the newest AMV Hell. My first impression was a chick using a sword made of blood in a flashy way with some nice and smooth, modern animation. Well-detailed and such. In the world the series takes place in, there are spirit creatures called Youmu, basically like demons made from the spite and ill feelings of humans. Combating the Youmu, are humans with special powers and abilities called Spirit World Warriors. Skipping unnecessarily details, the anime is about a half-Youmu of whom which is immortal because of his mix of genes, and an outcast Spirit World Warrior who can manipulate her blood to make weapons and so forth. The anime follows them as the Spirit World Warrior transfers to the half-Youmu's school, and goes from there with their interactions and so on and so forth. Strangely enough, I find myself not liking this anime very much. It has all the things a good anime should have, IE good animation, good characters, decent story, etc, but even in the first episode there was just something that made me not like it. Thinking on it some more, I think it was perhaps a number of things. Perhaps it's the fact that the very first meeting between the two above involved the half-Youmu trying to stop her from killing herself, and her first reaction is to stab him with a sword. Or perhaps it's an unlikable bitch character who did some things that really shouldn't have been overlooked, but were regardless. Or, perhaps it's the shitty stereotypical ending that rubbed me the wrong way. Overall, it is technically a decent anime, but there are many small grievances I have with it that caused it to be less than appealing. Even so, despite these grievances, they are mostly personal opinions, so I won't let it affect the way I rate it. ...... 6/10

Just when I thought I was done being attracted to anime girls, a five second lurk on Realphobia pulls me back in.

Haven't been adding new anime to the list. I know, I've been lazy.

But, to make up for it, I added 3 more:

Sword Art Online, Soul Eater, and Mirai Nikki

Half-review:

70.5 - Little Witch Academia

Little Witch Academia is a single episode ova in which it follows a young girl who aspires to be a witch, just like her favorite star, a witch who uses flashy and exciting magic to perform. She goes to a school for witches, and meets new friends and rivals along the way. But upon going to this school, she soon learns that maybe real magic isn't what she thought it was, and perhaps her idol wasn't the person she thought she was. It was decent for a one-episode ova. It was neatly wrapped up and presented well for the short time they had to present it in (as it is the length of a normal episode). ..... 6/10

I'm trying to think, what's the highest ranking you have ever given an anime?

Code Geass; 9

Code Geass is, however, my favorite anime. So it doesn't necessarily count since I am biased toward it. Otherwise, the next highest, unbiased, are:


Eureka Seven; 8.5

Neon Genesis Evangelion; 8

Usagi Drop; 8

Durarara!!; 8

Trigun; 8

Nichijou; 8

Tenchi Muyo: Ryo-Ohki; 7.75

Such high standards

Do you think there will ever be an anime that will get a perfect 10 from you?
or is that just being beyond hopeful?

Naw. Just like there will never be a 1.

Simply enough, I don't believe an anime can be perfect, and likewise don't believe it can be so bad as to receive a 1. Essentially, I don't believe perfection can exist, and I also don't believe pure shit exists. Even 2's and 9's are only given out in biased situations. I will really only comfortably rate between 3 and 8. Colin even gave my system a nickname, and I find it rather fitting.

The Purgatory rating system.

I've been considering changing the system a little though. If I put it in a 5 scale, I would start having 5's and maybe even 1's for the really shitty stuff. But idk. I just prefer the 10 scale because it's not too big and not too small. However, I've also considered doing a point system in which instead of giving it a flat rating, I give it pre-assigned points based on qualities (for example, add 10 points if it has a good ending), and these points can add up to 100. That way, you can see the reasons why I give it the rating I do, and so forth. Just an idea. May or may not do it

As a follow-up, my system is pretty arbitrary. In the sense that the ratings aren't perfect representations of quality.

Moreover, it's basically;

If it's about a 6, it's good.

If it's about a 7, I love it.

If it's about an 8, it's one of my favorites.

Anything else that's lower, I don't really care.

Update for those who read this:

I'm currently watching Naruto to completion. Currently around episode 50. I decided that I should watch one of the big/main animes that are super popular and blah blah blah. I also wanted to do a long one for once, since I typically stick to 24 or under length series.

For those curious why I chose Naruto specifically;

I took into consideration only the animes that were the most common and well known, that were lengthy. This narrowed it down to Bleach, One Piece, and Naruto. Yes, there are others, but not as well known as these three specifically. (I'm not counting Pokemon or anything similar for reasons that will go unlisted due to me wanting to keep this brief-ish)

One Piece was the first to be nixed, since, well... I like serious shows, and I like silly shows. But when a show tries to be both at the same time, and act like it still has plot... well, it just irritates me. Don't get me wrong, I watched it on tv when it aired with other anime I liked. It's not terrible to just watch, but it's not something I want to invest in.

Bleach is decent. I've actually seen quite a lot of Bleach, again due to seeing it on tv along with other shows I watched. Bleach isn't bad, I actually like the themes and such. The reason I didn't choose Bleach, is because it gets stale. They recycle plot points and just aren't that creative. The first season is its high point, past that it's just a repetitious cycle. Don't get me wrong, I like Bleach. But like One Piece, I don't have the desire to invest in it.

Naruto, upon further analysis, actually has virtually everything that makes for a good show. It has a continuous plot that doesn't recycle much if at all, it has unique and interesting characters, it has both serious and silly elements without actively combining the two, and it's dynamic. Characters change, the plot progresses, and it's interesting enough to hold my attention. The humor is good, and the serious points stay serious. It may have some over-used gimmicks, filler, etc, but it's long as fuck, what do you expect?

When I sat down to make the decision, it came surprisingly easily when weighing all factors from all three shows. Naruto just has better... everything. It may be beaten in animation by One Piece, and perhaps beaten in special effects by Bleach, but it has all of the elements necessary to make a good show, and it works.


I'll be doing other reviews as I watch Naruto, just to clarify. But Naruto is my main 'project' of sorts at the moment.

(note: I'm watching the original uncut Japanese version with English subtitles. You'd be amazed at just how different it is from the English version. And no, Naruto doesn't say 'Believe it' in the Japanese version. Not even once.)

I make a point not to spoil when I write these things.

The thing near the end when we learn the "truth"

In regards to an earlier post, I thought this was a good representation of how the universes compare:
