I haven't taken notice in a while. Last watched Deathnote which I really enjoyed.
Also watched Parasite Dolls. Do like the old Cyberpunk stuff. Akira is showing in the local art cinema this month as well!
So what is new in anime?
any new massive shows I should know about? preferably not along the lines of Bleach and Naruto.

The art drew me to that show, I gave it 2 or 3 episodes but didn't grab me.
Seen Record of Londes? think that was it's name. it's pretty cool.

It gets pretty engrossing about 4 or 5 episodes in. It does get off to kind of a slow start though.

Also check out History's greatest disciple Kenichi.

code geass, i htough it had some similarities to death note in the main characters what with the sort of dunno if they are good or bad, not usually into that mecha stuff but this one is pretty cool.
#10
^ yeah I hear a lot of good things about that and to be honest I did watch some and like it but i felt like it was a bit racist.
'die britainna bastard!' comes up a fair bit, makes me feel a bit bad to watch it haha.
do they ever ease up on the British bastard stuff?

I think Kenichi is along the lines of Bleach right? I mean genre-wise. I'm not into shounen stuff to be honest, my gf will laugh at me.

A little I suppose. It's less childish but defenately more comedy-oriented then say, deathnote.

How bout' Gun X Sword?

+1 for outlaw star, forgot about that one .

dude its so underrated, because it came out around the same time as cowboy bebop. I watched this show when I was 8, loved it ever since.
#17
damn anime is getting so bad!
its losing that grit that made it so different, it never use to speak down to you. now it's overly flashy with cookie cutter characters. Its all gone wrong!
One Piece
Bleach
Naruto

We need more anime like Monster!

Yeah, but to it's credit Cowboy Bebop is a pretty stellar series (no pun intended.. or WAS IT?! )

School Rumble its so funny

I loved outlaw star. It's probably the best in my opinion. The new naruto series is actually pretty good. I think it is called Naruto Shippuden. It's quite a bit more mature and less childish. Oh and he doesn't say "Believe it!" hardly ever.

Code Geass actually surprised me in how good it was.

Outlaw Star is amazing.

If you can find Blue Sub 6, it's a pretty good series, just hard to find.

Cowboy Bebop is fscking amazing. I read the Death Note manga, what I've seen of the anime is pretty impressive as far as art-work goes.

Akira, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop and Dragonball Z live-action films in production, for those of you who don't know. So yea, crappy American re-makes for the loss.

Code Geass if you like "mind****s".

Hyakko if you like comedy.

I got an Ergo Proxy DVD in the mail. I gave it a shot, but got bored after half an episode (to be fair, I wasn't really in the mood, I'll give it another chance later).

They've also released a Blade of the Immortal anime, but I would heartily recommend you to pick up the manga instead.
