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 never asked for this crown. Gold is cold and heavy on the head, but so long as I am the king, I have a duty … If I must sacrifice one child to the flames to save a million from the dark … Sacrifice … is never easy, Davos. Or it is no true sacrifice." - Stannis Baratheon
