    Awesome. I just picked up Shin Godzilla and I started watching Shirokuma Cafe. So adorable. :3

    I was into Naruto for about a year. Well, I move on from series to series very quickly. The interest I had had in Dragon Ball for the last two years is beginning to die down now.

    edit: if you like Naruto, you might really like My Hero Academia too

    Currentttt series is....my brother has me watching what I guess is a sort of moe series right now. It's called New Game. It's about a group of girls who work professionally in game development though, which is unusual.

    Also watched Mob Psycho 100 recently, which was very good and is getting a season 2 this year. It has an unusual art style, and was written by the same author who wrote One Punch Man.
    Also recently watched My Hero Academia (or Boku no Hero Academia, if you're like the rest of the internet and for some reason insist on not translating the word Boku). Which is also getting another season this year. Actually, several of the series I either have loved a lot, or that I'm very interested in (Persona 5) are getting new seasons this year. It's a good year for anime.

    Oh yes. My brother also loves JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, which means I'm made to watch it too. The "bizarre" part of the title is veryyy fitting, as this series is ri-dic-u-lous. But in a way that makes it even better, because it's over the top entirely on purpose. It's like it knows it's stretching things, but it does it in a way that it's awesome.
    JoJo (the series) is very violent and gorey at times though. When the manga first began in the '80s, according to what I read on wikipedia, it originally ran in a shonen (boys) magazine, but then just got too mature and violent, so it was moved to a seinen publication. (Seinen is aimed at ages 20 and up.) Also, a lot of the protagonists in each arc are either delinquents or hot heads, lel.


    Currently for games/visual novels I am finishing up the routes in Clannad. Clannad was my 2nd anime and pretty much solidified my interest in anime (because I wanted to find other stories just as deep as that one), so when I heard the visual novel (which is the original) was coming to steam I was very excited. A friend actually bought it for me last year, and I played all the way to the true ending. There were about five or six routes I never completed, so I'm doing it now.
    If you've seen the anime and enjoyed it, you NEED to play the visual novel. The anime is good, the original is 300x times better and more satisfying. It's around $40 on steam, less if you take advantage of one of steam's numerous sales.

    Awesome. I need to catch up on Jojo, I have the first 2 arcs on DVD and need to see the rest. I love how zanny and how many hard rock and metal references they throw at the audience, I'm finally watching Berzerk because I'm an Oldtaku and after taking advantage of some sales over the holiday I'm reliving my anime child hood. Plus Hulu has Gundam Wing now so I'm going to rewatch that guilty pleasure.

    Pretty boys with problems YEAH!

    Oh yes, I found a list of all the music references and was surprised at how many I didn't even catch. XD I heard the author likes Western culture a lot, so I guess it makes sense. (Maybe that's also why the first two arcs take place in Britain, US, and Europe.)
