I'm sorry about earlier recommending The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. For the most part it was a bad recommendation.
Right now, I am rewatching The entire Dragon Ball series. I'm starting with Dragon Ball and working myself through DBZ to get ready DBZ Super.

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

I actually quite liked Saiki K and ended up watching the entire series, I did keep to the 5 ep omnibuses however as I struggle to get into very short shows but I thought it was pretty funny with likeable characters.

Humour wise I think Gabriel Dropout and Konosuba will likely be the only currently airing shows I can get a laugh from, although I'm not a fan of the new Konosuba art direction thankfully the humour is still there though.

Hellsing ultimate is what I'm watching today.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Lol, then I take it back then.

p.s. Deathnote is awesome the live action movies were pretty good too probably one of the better movie remakes.

Finished Sword Art Online, which I mostly really enjoyed. The first parts of season 1 and 2 definitely more than the second halves. Wondering what to move on to next...

2017 GOTY nominations: SAO: Memory Defrag, Death Road to Canada, Spaceplan, Arkanoid vs Space Invaders

Funny enough I'm reading through the first four "Sword Art Online Progressive" novels, basically it's way more detailed than the show each book concentrates entirely on one or two floors and I'm finding it very good.

I've always like Sword Art Online honestly it get's an unfair amount of hate, can't wait to check out the new movie when I can as well.

Similar Anime to Sword Art online

Closest would likely be Log Horizon or Overlord, there's also a parody called "sword art online abridged" it's quite funny, you can find on Youtube there's only about 10 short eps.

Cheers for the tips. Not sure I want another anime that's in exactly the same MMO vein, though. I had no idea SAO was so divisive until recently, either. I admit, the whole Suga storyline made me uncomfortable (who looks at a siblings differently on finding out you're actually cousins?), but the rest of it seemed to involve pretty standard anime tropes, even the sexism. Looking forward to the movie too.

I'd rather find more stuff like Rurouni Kenshin or Samurai Champloo - I like those historical-set action series. That said, since I have Netflix, I might give Mushishi and Attack on Titan a go, as they're there and I don't have to do any deep-sea internet fishing to get them.

EDIT: Decided on Tokyo Ghoul, as it's also on Netflix and I'd heard good things. And yeah, it's good.

Anyone have Crunchyroll, the anime tv service? Go check out "The Ancient Magus' Bride". Two out of three prequel episodes are already out, the last will come out in September right before the anime begins in October (based on the stunningly beautiful and heartfelt 'Beauty and the Beast'-like manga). As you might guess from the reference, it's about two people who are trying to help each other find their inner strength and humanity, and the people who either help or thwart them.
