    I loved this show with all my soul. Mikuru Asahina 4 lyfe Seriously though, I've never watched a slice of life that balanced all of the elements of a slice of life (humor, sadness, romance, intrigue, daily monotony) so well and so effectively. Kyon is absolutely my personality in a nutshell too which helped my enjoyment a lot.

    Okay, well, I'm glad you ended up enjoying it. I watched it when it aired so I just remember it being a massive buzzkill when the second arc got going, plus I hated the whole character/subplot with Lyfa. Still, I'm glad it didn't ruin your enjoyment of the show :) I've actually never made an SAO car, maybe I should do that next... As far as what to watch next... what genre are you looking for?

    hoo boy. brace yourself for that second arc. It starts at episode 14 I think and personally, I thought it took a serviceably decent show and dunked it in the toilet. Curious as to how you'll like it... :tongue:

    I really have enjoyed Gakkou Gurashi! this summer, and I think everyone's excited for One Punch Man this fall....  I'm really not sure if I want to watch that one! I like cute comedy things and hate horror. I've heard it's both and it makes me uneasy! So I've been watching stuff like... Working!!!, Himouto Umaru-Chan, GATE and so on. Oh, and Shokugeki no Soma continues to be brilliant as well ^_^ It's definitely a cross between a slice of life like K-On! and a psychological thriller/suspense along the lines of Madoka or Mirai Nikki, except with much less portrayed violence than the latter. So if you don't want to be tense, and you definitely don't want to be wondering if any of the characters will actually live through all 12 episodes, I would avoid it... But as a "cute girls doing cute things with an edge" show it's succeeding very well, I think. Himouto Umaru-Chan looks hilarious from the clips I've seen but I don't think I could watch an entire season of what I do all day :tongue:

    74 episodes is such a commitment that a show has to be genre-defining for me to watch it. I still haven't even watched FMA because of the high number of episodes, and that is genre-defining. Basically, godspeed, good sir.  Never seen it but I'm watching Gakkou Gurashi! this season and it's not your standard moe-girls-do-moe-things show. It's shocked me, I'm totally hooked.

    This was from when it was eating my posts and refusing to actually post them, so I kept editing it until it let me POST IT :lol:

    I always thought rallying would be the perfect motorsport discipline for a romantic comedy anime. I would love to see a short rally anime, similar to Initial D :smiley:  It's funny you guys mention this because I'm actually working on an anime piece right now that's a mock poster/teaser for a rally-based anime. The genre I was looking to portray in my piece was almost along the lines of slice-of-life/magical girls (except no one is magical, of course - just very good at rally). I'll post a WIP when I get a little more done...

I would love to see a short rally anime, similar to Initial D :smiley:  It's funny you guys bring this up because literally as of a week ago I just started on this giant 18" x 24" piece that is going to be a mock poster/teaser of a rally-based anime. Sort of a slice-of-life/shonen kind of show (sort of like a cross between K-On! and Initial D, if you can imagine that, but with less tea drinking than K-On! and less teenage brooding than Initial D).  I'll post a WIP when I get more done :smile:  and @789ifyz - I generally am at least a few years behind on my shows, so I'm not watching anything current right now but I do plan to binge the Disappearance of Yuki Nagato when it ends. Other than that nothing really catches my eye right now, 'cept JoJo Stardust crusaders, and I'm still only a couple episodes into the first season of that so it may take a while for me to catch up.

    New anime? Nah. But Mirai Nikki (Future Diary in English) sounds like it fits into that category. It's probably five years old by now but it's extremely good.  From what little I've seen of it, Mirai Nikki looks closer to Higruashi than Death Note and Terror in Resonance. I guess those two don't have much psychological stuff, more like thrillers with plenty of witty and clever things. Like a battle of brains rather than brawn.... still not sure how to properly categorise them. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. That anime is on my watchlist. Hopefully I'll get round to watching it soon. Well I've not seen Death Note so I'm not sure; it just got very intense and there was an emphasis on suspense throughout the show. There was some "battle of the minds" going on but in a Battle Royale fashion. I hope you get to see it soon also, I think it stands out as a superbly good show (it also has what many consider the best portrayal of a "yandere" girl in anime if you're into that as well :tongue: ). It's the only show I ever watched in entirety in one 24-hour period, and one of only four that I own the entire collection of episodes from.

    @SynGamer, @Britpoint, @scarl3td3vil - it's funny you guys mention a rally anime because I'm actually working on a piece right now for a mock poster/advertisement for a rally-based anime. I'll post a pic when I've got more done, I don't have much yet. My goal is to make it look like a cross between K-On! and Initial D, but on dirt, lol (and with less tea-drinking). With the proliferation of weird titles like Rail Wars! and Girls Und Panzer it only seemed to make sense :tongue:  And @789ifyz - I never keep up with the current seasons but I'm making an exception this year; I think I'm going to try to catch the Disappearance of Yuki Nagato because I was/am a huge Haruhi fan.
