some expert friend gave me the Shigurui boxset lately, havent watched yet.

Gantz was nice but it pushed the unlikeable characters factor too much.

and i miss black lagoon.
wth, I just swing by and get the "ur a h8r" comment, but nobody else does?

Anyway, I watched Pokemon and did the trading card game when it first came out (that's right, before it was cool!). And I can appreciate a good tentacle rape now and then. But otherwise, meh, and I don't care to be open minded about it.

There is some good stuff, but I can't help but look down on people who watch shit in shit formats.

And it's not my job to make anyone a better "otaku".

"Like any medium". Hah. It shouldn't be hard for people to find something to impress me, then. I've managed to find good everything else on my own. But somehow even asking anime fans what to watch I still end up watching something terrible.
i dont think of it as an artistic medium (but some are so much better drawn then then 99% of the american cartoons) but rather as a another method of entertainment medium.

not all anime is supposed to be funny, like any tv series it can tell a story, be all drama, or comedy, or some pervy thing.

who knows what you like? i dont like most metal, so what? just because you like korn that makes it the best band evar? if you liked CSI tv shows and someone recommended 'scrubs', would you condemn all tv shows? wtf.

if you asked me, i'd recommend some of the better anime movies instead of a series.
without a frame of reference, did you try:
perfect blue
spirited away
princess mononoke
grave of the fireflies?

akira was a breakthru at the time, there wasnt anything like it then. if you watched something like... idk... 'gone with the wind' now, it would be different right?

So what are you guys into? also if you know of any ultra violent anime that isnt mostly boring crap let me know!

my point is that not not all people who watch anime are otakus. i watch it as i watch anything else, selecting the stuff that interests (few) from the stuff i dont really care about. and most people do the same.

To give an example i consider ALL fantasy and science fiction, from LOTR to Star Wars, including Avatar and Harry Potter, mind numbing silliness that's childish and has no artistic merit whatsoever. but if someone has fun with it, whatever.

Well i dont count Tarkovsky as common science fiction, or Kubrick. Although im more open with sci fi. Fantasy gives me the creeps. i enjoyed the LOTR movies for the cinematic aspects but the idea of elves and warriors is retarded to me.

yet i dont look down on who likes it
