      Hell yeah dude. I had no clue what I was watching and I was about to switch off of it because it was kinda lame. But about 5-10 minutes in the first episode there was a line that was amazing.

        Absolutely legendary show, and several of the voice actors ended up being huge.

      Great series, was actually one of the first I saw. It's just a shame that there's no legal method to stream it in the UK, and coughing up £25 for a DVD is a bit much for a casual rewatch.

        Thats the thing with anime is that its so freaking expensive. And I refuse to pay for another streaming service outside of Prime and Netflix (and occasionally HBO). I just use illegal websites. If they are on the services I subscribe to, I will use it. I know a lot of people say I shouldn't steal or wtv, but my morals don't really care.

          This describes pretty much exactly my situation, minus HBO as it's not really a thing in the UK. First resort is always to see if Crunchyroll (non-premium) have a series (which is the case for Ergo Proxy in America!), but inevitably in most cases only the most mainstream and recent stuff is legally available.

          In the past in these situations I did pirate, and I can't say I feel particularly bad about it. It's their fault they're losing potential revenue by failing to provide a legal means to view the content in my region. Although where possible I like to support the creators, so I do feel a little bad.

            Exactly. And something I think people in general should remember is we, the people, control the market. If they see that more people are moving to pirating, they will realize that their prices are too high or their accessibility sucks. People evolve, tech evolve, and so does the market. It might result in some things suddenly being less profitable buts thats just the nature of economics.

            A good example is music, before streaming listening to music on demand was expensive, but now its easy and record labels make less money. 1 good thing is that the Japanese music labels just realised this and have started putting their music on spotify.

    If you haven't yet, I'd say definitely watch Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

      Ah yes, and go from "hundreds of days" to "thousands of days". It's pretty good melodrama though. Certainly a better recommendation than most other long-running series.

    I don't see Katanagatari mentioned much outside of niche discussion, although it does appear to have slightly over 100 thousand members on MAL. Perhaps I just 'missed the boat' with regards to it's earlier popularity. Either way, if you can get past the lengthier dialogue, I'd recommend giving it a try if you've not already seen it.

    Kaiji is also in my experience a less popular anime, focusing on increasingly high-stakes and absurd gambles. Extreme, but gripping enough to keep you interested. Although the art style is certainly unique...

        You don't need the "may" in there. There's no shame.

    It's basically if Stephen King's book Salem's Lot was made into a series by someone who wanted to do it better.

    It's a good mix of drama and horror, and last time I checked $20 on Amazon.
