But isn't it only subjective opinion? What is when someone don't like Anime?
Personally I find most of it damn kitschy, but I watched "Heidi" in my childhood and this was a brillant series. It is very different than conventional Anime movies with Magic, Monsters and Superheros etc. Heidi is more european-like Anime. But things like Dragonball, Pokemon or Final Fantasy are not for me. It doesn't look realistic. So I need to watch some of the Ghibli movies to see whether it's gold or just the same nonsense like Pokemon etc.

Ghibli is considered the Disney of japan by many.

http://www.imdb.com/list/ls005703859/

Most stuff they've made is considered masterpieces by most people whom have watched them, and keep in mind these are not standard ''anime'' films, take a look at My Neighbour Totoro for example, that film is known by pretty much everyone ever, even if you're not into anime.

So if you want to see anime, but not into the general theme of most anime, studio Ghibli is definately the way to go.

I never heard of that film before, but I will first watch my two new films from Ghibli.
When they are good, I will look for more.

Panda, Go Panda was my childhood. I would constantly watch the entire thing off of a VHS tape WITHOUT subtitles and enjoy the hell out of the whole thing despite not having any clue what alien language they were spewing.

Just keep in mind that Im 15 years old? And that you don't have to help me because of my responsibility?

Being 15 or 20 years old doesn't have to make you mature. You can be even freakin' 50 years old, but you can behave like a immature kid.

RE: The (not BL but) Anime Thread

Angel Beats Hell's Kitchen OVA is finally out! As expected it's general randomness and hilarity over just how lightly the whole cast sees death because none of them can really die. Wasn't so amazing to the point of needing this OVA but it's still stupidly funny nonetheless!

Best moment of the OVA:

I don't know is it because I haven't seen Angel Beats! for a long ass time, but this episode felt a little different in tone compared to 5 years earlier -- or it also can be that Gintama has spoiled me; the best thing this OVA did for me was to make me grin in a little. I never felt like laughing, though.
Still it had the spirit of its character - I must admit I felt nostalgic to say the least. Good ol' Angel Beats!

RE: The (not BL but) Anime Thread

I was laughing pretty hard in some areas mostly due to the dark humour of how much like psychopaths all the characters are in that they don't give a damn about death at all. It makes sense that they can't die and that getting killed is about as impactful to them as pulling a prank on them, but makes me laugh really hard just how lightly they view "dying horribly."
