Just started watching FMA: Brotherhood. So far, it's so much cooler than the original FMA (Which I loved too).

My other favorite anime series to date are:

Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X)
Gundam Wing
G Gundam [This is purely for nostalgia]
Cell games DBZ [I liked most of it, but going back, I can understand most of my love is based on nostalgia as well]
And the little bit of Death Note I've seen.

There's probably a few more I'm forgetting about.

Best episode ever. Minato = Son Goku from DBZ. He should have been the main character. It sucks that Naruto's parents died. It's nice to see the Dead Demon Consuming Seal again. It's still the best jutsu in Naruto.

Minato Namikaze was a BAMF. Naruto Shippuuden = Modern Day Dragon Ball Z.

Soul Eater.

Turned out far better than I expected in fact I really liked it.

Black Star needs to die but other than that it toed the line of some good creepy interesting things mixed with the other more comical anime stuff. Very interesting.

I never finished it. I'll get around to it one day. Think I have 10 or so episodes left.

Also, I'm fairly close to possibly going over to Japan for a year or more. Think it will be cool to see anime and such from that side of the spectrum.

I haven't really been following anything this season. I'll probably check Nisemonogatari once it finishes airing, but other then that I'm not sure.

There's a new upcoming called "kids on the slope" that's gonna be directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, might be cool.

Just finished reading Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. Amazing manga, possibly my new favorite. Now I just need to finish Aria.

I like clean art and comedic slice-of-life storyline. This one is 75% of those so it's good enough.

Yea a little bit. It's got some good names behind it though, so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it.

Yeah, the last time an anime with a similar direction is Madoka Magica (looks like a Saturday morning cartoon for little to teenage girls, it is not).

Just finished FMA Brotherhood and I am blown away by how awesome it was. Great job on it and I definitely liked it more than the original. Although I do think they could have extended it out 5-6 more episodes and fleshed it out a little more. As soon as they got to Fort Briggs things began to move faster than I expected.
