Re: Anime: Why you love/hate it so much?
There's not too many anime concepts that really appeal to me. Or if they do, the writing turns me off. I find Naruto's setting to be fascinating, with its blend of modern technology and mysticism. The writing isn't my cup of tea, though. I love The Slayers; a fantasy setting that's more sword and sorcery than Tolkien, with protagonists who're opportunistic mercenaries. The humor's good, too.
Berserk is still king of the manga/anime scene; specifically the manga.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
