I loved the Monster manga...definitely more than the anime.  I think it's a must-read for seinen fans.

Ending annoyed me of the manga. Never watched the anime

Viz announced that they picked up Shokugeki no Soma. It wont be part of their digital version of WSJ (apparently because of all the fan service), but it will still be released digitally in spring 2014. The print version of the first volume is expected in August '14.

 

If no one has had a chance to read it yet, I highly recommend it. Probably one of the best series to come out of WSJ in the last couple years IMO. It's of course a shonen manga, but it's about food battles. And as I mentioned earlier, there's a nice bit of fan service. I definitely plan on supporting the manga when it gets to the states.

Sounds like Iron Wok Jan,which was basically DBZ meets Iron Chef.

Speaking of mangas getting released here,Vinland Saga finally got released here which any seinen fan should check out.

You know, I didn't think Gundam Build Fighters would be any good, but it has surprised me. The cast is enjoyable, the theme song is catchy, and the Gunpla battles and fanservice are amazing. It also helps that the writers obviously know how absurd the premise is and ham it up. It somehow manages to both celebrate Gunpla love while also making fun at the obsession at the same time.

I wasn't really sold beforehand on the idea of it being based on Gunpla, but I've completely changed my tune. Gunpla is behind one of my favorite aspects of the show now. The fact that they came up with a rational premise that allows mobile suits from all the various timelines to battle with each other is a big reason why I'm loving Gundam Build Fighters.

Finished Persona 4 the Animation yesterday, not to finish off SAO. I enjoyed Persona, seems like a pretty good game too bad I can't play it!

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

So I've been on an anime binge recently. Crunchyroll is a wonderful thing. I could use more recomendations. Here's what I've seen so far:

 

Sword Art Online

Oreimo - only got a few episodes in, I might finish it up

Kill a Kill - couple episodes in

Yowapeda - love this one

Kids on the Slope - probably my favorite so far. Really good

Usagi Drop

Samurai Flamenco

Attack on Titan

The World God Only Knows - watched about 12 episodes, it okay but not 100% my thing

 

Again any recomendation would be appreciated. My favorites so far are SAO, Kids on Slope and Yowapeda. I guess I like more drama than goofy comedy.

Hmm, well considering how much I disliked SAO I'm not sure my recommendations would do anything for you, but I've been watching Gosick and really enjoying it. It started out as basically sherlock holmes as a little girl, but it quickly changed around to a much more serious and engaging show than I first expected. I'm a few episodes from the end still, but would definitely recommend it if you are looking for something new with an interesting setting and style. It's on Crunchyroll as well, so that's a plus ^_^

How bout dose recent chapters of Naruto? With the INCREDIBLY obvious dragging of the feet before finishing the manga and the increasingly terrible use of Talk no Jutsu. Mm-MMMM, delicious.

As per usual, I'll recommend two of my favorites: Neon Genesis Evangelion and Baccano!. 

 

And here are some others:

 

  • Hunter x Hunter (if you're okay with long running animes, it's very good)
  • Aku no Hana
  • Hyouka
  • Mawaru Penguindrum
  • Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

I've only watched about half your list so they might not be the best recs.

I've just started watching the Hunter x Hunter reboot anime. I was reading for a while but at some point I got really lost in the plot and then the hiatuses and I just gave up. I'm hoping this new anime is FMA: Brotherhood quality. I like it so far.

It's in my top five animes. I haven't seen FMAB yet, just FMA2003 and read the manga, but it's very good. And Killua and Gon are easily two of my favorite anime characters out there.

Anyone read The Breaker New Waves? I've never searched for a comedy manga before but this popped up as one of the top 5.

I haven't heard of it, but I will definitely be sure to check it out now since I'm always up for a good laugh!

 

Speaking of comedy, I started watching Seto no Hanayome/My Bride is a Mermaid since it was unexpectedly added to netflix recently and it's pretty much as ridiculous as it sounds. I'm really really enjoying it so far, as even though the animation could be better and they reuse some jokes a bit too much, I've been nearly in tears from laughing so much. Definitely worth checking out if you like outrageous anime comedies ^_^

15 episodes into Space Brothers right now. I'm enjoying it, so it gets a recomendation from me. Just be ready because it's 80 episodes long.

 

I want to watch Baccano! I think it's on Hulu plus but I suspended my service a while back in favor for the zero ad Crunchyroll

Been a bit behind on airing anime, so I caught up with a Galilei Donna, Yowamushi Pedal, Kill la Kill, and I'm about to watch Golden Time and after that probably Kyoukai no Kanata. I'm thinking about dropping Coppelion.
 
Also just watched the newest Samurai Flamenco and holy shit. People were confused about and I was wondering what they were talking about and now I understand;

 

Spoiler

 

Finished Kaiba today and I'm not sure what the hype is. It was good, but nothing quite special. Thinking about catching up on Walkure Romance and Freezing Vibration. And I'll probably start Oofuri today.

 

Edit: Also finished reading Oyasumi Punpun, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I've read it. I wouldn't really call it that much of a comedy manga though. It's a manwha and it's all about martial arts. But if you're interested, I'd recommend reading the series that New Waves is a sequel to, The Breaker.

 

Blue Exorcist is being added to Toonami starting next March.

 

And then here are some images of Miura's new manga that's holding up the return Berserk.

 

Oh and Toonami has also revealed what movies they're going to show every Saturday next month. Starting 12/7 it's Akira, 12/14 Summer Wars, 12/21 Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa, and on 12/28 it's Trigun: Badland Rumble.

Recently finished Kaiba and The Tatami Galaxy and probably a couple others I'm forgetting.

 

I liked them, but I don't feel like they were that good. Those kind of animes aren't really my kinda thing I guess since everyone else who watched them said they're masterpieces. 

 

Also started One Punch Man a couple minutes ago, and I'm... so confused.

O.o Granted, I have not seen the anime version, but the OPM manga is pretty clear cut. Bad guy appears, gloats about how evil and strong he is, beats up other heroes around him, then OPM comes in and beats him...in one punch.

Now that I'm almost caught up, I understand what's going on.

 

Before I started I'd seen a lot of caps of Genos and I thought it was a relatively serious manga from the caps I'd seen but I wasn't aware it was in the comedy genre. When I started off I was caught a bit off guard because I thought Genos was the protagonist.

 

I'm enjoying it so far. It's got a few giggles out of me and I like Genos as a character and the way the pages are drawn like frames in battles sequences is pretty neat. And overall, the art is pretty good too.

 

Kinda makes me want to read Eyeshield 21.

 

 

Also finished Darker than Black Season 1 and Karneval. DTB was very good. Karneval was a bit... pointless. I liked Yogi and Gareki was okay, though. I think Miyano Momaru is my favorite seiyuu, or up there at least.

Started One Piece (manga) after a lot of friends pressuring me too. Only 10 chapters in but it doesn't seem bad.

And so now I'm reading all of the biggest three American mangas. Hopefully OP doesn't turn as bad as Naruto or Bleach.

I personally think Bleach has gotten better since the Vandenreich.

I just cannot muster any excitement for One Piece. I liked it back at the beginning, but the Alabasta arc wore on me and once SJ skipped ahead, I didn't really feel like going back to read the skipped stuff. It doesn't help that Oda's style has worn out its welcome for me.

Yeah, same for me with Bleach. But Naruto... Eh. This arc has been going on forever and I really do not like Obito as a villain.

OP is kinda okay so far. The characters are decent. The art style is decent but the storyline so far is a bit tedious.

I've tried to read it once before but I quit it after volume two. But my friends are huge OP fans and if I drop it again they probably won't let me here the end of it.

edit: so far the characters' motivation seem kinda lame. Luffy has his dream of being the greatest pirate for Shanks and his hat, Zoro has his promise to his childhood friend, and Nami has her family member who was killed by pirates. They just seem kinda cliche. Maybe I'm over thinking it.
