    History's Strongest Disciple Ken'ichi
    I like how it is kind of 90s-ish. It was these kinds of animes that were my gateway to anime and it brought me back to my roots you can say. I liked how you can relate to some of the characters and it had action and comedy, the kind of stuff I mostly enjoy with my anime. I loved the martial arts aspect since I am a martial arts buff

    Ring ni Kakero Nichibei Kessen Hen
    Well, not also fully faithful to the manga, but it's great to see the continuation of the first season. But I don't like how NB Forrest is no longer a KKK grand wizard in the anime and how they changed Kazuki's and Katori's fights with Monster Jail and Mick.

    Hokuto no Ken Raoh Den and Yuria Den and Toki Den(this counts as three animes)
    As much as I don't like the new voice actors, I still loved the new art and animation. I love how they updated the fights to today's standards and technologies. But I am dissapointed they did away with Souther's background story which I thought was really awesome. But I like how the art and design is more faithful to the original manga and I like the updates to the theme songs as well.

    Deathnote
    I loved this more than the manga. I loved the acting and animation style to make it come across as more darker than the manga.

    Wangan Midnight
    Finally!!! An adaption of one of my favorite mangas!!! Though not as "technical" as Initial D sometimes, but still something different and fun.

    Only saw a handful of new series that debut this year and 2 come to mind at the moment. Those 2 are Darker than Black & Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuchō: Tō (Tokyo Majin).

    Tried watching Fate/Stay and Trinity Blood. All hype.


    Really really wanted to start Solty Rei. Anyone check that out?

    SpeedGrapher was awesome too. By passed when it originally came out. But best buy put it on sale, so I picked it up.

    Dude you totally rocked for naming this. This was also my favorite show of last year. I loved Kenichi and how he starts from nothing and slowly builds up his skill over every episode. The masters were great and his family was hilarious. I hope it does come back at some point.

    What's the English title for this one?

    For me the best new one would have to be Mushi-Shi. Also School Rumble. Great shows.

    For me:
    Trinity Blood
    Le Chevalier D'Eon
    Hellsing Ultimate I
    Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society

    I've also been going through Gundam Seed Destiny (and I quite like it; I'm up to Vol. 9), picked up Last Exile (but thats a few years old now), and have been watching Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles up to Vol. 3 (it's fine to watch at times, at others, even Master Yoda's patience would be tested it is that slow).

    All those were very good. Well Trinity Blood's OK, but it does basically rip off Hellsing and Trigun.

    Well, while you're right in terms of the concept (secret organisations, brothers who are mortal enemies, etc), the story is more of a political drama. It's all about politics and intrigue, which is what sets it apart from those two in my book.

    Oh hum, to each their own.

    Both Trigun and Trinity aren't very good series in my opinion.


    But then again, I hated Cowboy Bebop too.

    That's your opinion. :dry:

    I thought it was over rated. The only "good" thing it had going for it was the soundtrack, and even that was a stretch for me.

    I heard Kensei's brother comes back in the manga. I need to find it!!! I don't get why the anime had to end it there. Sure the anime is slow, but it ended in a Hajime no Ippo kind of way.

    There is no official English title and I doubt there ever will be one.

    I thought SEED Destiny was crap and the worst Gundam series of all time. It lacks an establishment of a consistent main character, unoriginal Gundam designs, and almost recycles the same story from the first season except it's the FEDs rather than ZAFT that does the Gundam-jacking. I never liked the CE universe too much personally.

    It means: Bet it All in the Ring: The Japan-American War Arc
