      Hey all, I listen to a bunch of podcasts during my commute to/from work, and I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations for good anime podcasts?

      I've already made it through All Systems Goku, which followed two of the Giant Bomb guys on their first viewing of Dragon Ball Z Kai. It was a lot of fun! There were a lot of wrestling references, all of which I didn't get, but they had a fun time.

      After rewatching Evangelion on Netflix, I got in the mood for some classics. Some of my beloved old animes, like Kare Kano, Escaflowne and Fushigi Yuugi, are not available either on Netflix or Crunchyroll. So I'm curious to know from you guys which old animes (that premiered at least 20 years ago) are still a good watch. Thanks!

      I very much enjoy the "old anime" style and space-based stories. I can't believe that I had never seen Planetes before. Are there any other less well known shows like this that you might recommend?

      FYI: I have already seen the old standards such as Bebop, Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Mobile Suit Gundam, Ghost in Shell, Macross, and maybe a couple others. But this standalone universe of Planetes made me realize there may be a lot more out there of which I am unaware. Thanks!

      I should start by saying that I, generally, hate animes. However, for some reason, One Punch Man (OPM) is fucking awesome! I like everything about it. I find myself laughing while watching it, Saitama is hilarious.

      Can you suggest me animes similar to OPM, or animes that you think I would enjoy watching?

      For the most part, I am a late-comer to anime. I'm in my 30s, and I didn't really get into anime until my late 20s when I started working as an artist and (occasionally) animator. My early exposure to anime before I was 25 was limited to Pokemon and Spirited Away (like most non-anime watching Americans). I enjoyed both, but just never really knew where to start with anime. It seemed like there was too much of it.

      SAO was the first anime to really hook me. I binged it, and really enjoyed it. Since then, I haven't stopped. I've watched so many movies and series, and I love discovering new ones regularly.

      So what about you? When did you start watching? And which have left a lasting impression on you?

      I recently purchased Junji Ito's Shiver collection, which has nine of his self-descirbed "best" shorts inside:

      • Used Record
      • Shiver
      • Fashion Model
      • Hanging Blimp
      • Marionette Mansion
      • Painter
      • The Long Dream
      • Honored Ancestors
      • Greased

      And while overall I would say the collection was well worth the £16 it cost, I will say I was somewhat disappointed in the varying "shivers" delivered by each short.

      For example, I found the Fashion Model short to be quite frustrating: compared to the creativity and build up of horror present in some of the other shorts such as Hanging Blimp, it was essentially "creepy looking lady is serial killer". Others such as Used Record seemed as though there was a lot of wasted story.

      Meanwhile, some such as Marionette Mansion did a grand job of building a suspenseful atmosphere and The Long Dream was certainly scary to dwell on.

      I understand variable impact on the reader is to be expected for so many different works, but for what Ito described as nine of his best I was a little disappointed.

      Outside of this collection, the only work of Ito's I have seen is the one where people enter holes carved out for their bodies (which for the record I also enjoyed).

      Are others familar with Junji Ito's work? Recommendations for his or similar artists work would be very welcome.

      Edits: paragraphing.

      I'm still fairly new to anime (~2.5 years) and have been just watching either classics/high rated anime or whatever everyone else is watching that season and really want to know what are some pretty good anime/manga that are underrated and overshadowed by huge influx of anime every season?

      Mine picks would be:

      • One Outs : It's basically a Sports anime about Baseball with heavily focusing on mind games (similar to Death Note/Code Geass/etc) It is 8.4 on MAL but It's really underrated in terms of it's audience

      • Black Clover : It's really not that bad as people say it is. Yes the adaptation is bad but the story is really good, yeah it's basically generic shonen but it does the generic shonen things much better than other generic shonens. I'd still suggest the manga over the anime (with coming back to see the climax of arcs/seeing your favourite scenes being adapted)

      For Manga:

      • Gokushufudou (The Way of the House Husband) : It's basically a manga about an ex-most wanted gangster now living as a house husband. It's one of the most funniest mangas I've read.

      • Vigilante: Boku no Hero Academia Illegals : It's a spinoff of My Hero Aca which is pretty cool but not really popular. The story could be boiled down to what would've happened if Midoriya wasn't able to pass the UA exams. Oh yeah and it's all canon (the main author verified this).

      That's basically it for what I've read/watched.

      Mine was watching the final episode of Gurren Lagann when I was 10. Back then kid me was really hyped at the sheer scope of the final battle. I watched it in dub but the impact of it solidified my fanaticism in anime.

      Recently I've started getting really into manga/anime that focuses pretty heavily on brawling.

      I binged Kengan Asura, which primarily focuses on a fighter named Ohma and his coach as they fight in an underground fighting ring.

      Baki was very similar, but probably a bit more silly, and a bit more focused on the conflict with his father.

      Part of my problem is I don't really know what to look for after this. Does anyone have any suggestions for either manga or anime that is focused on fighters / fighting like Kengan or Baki?
