  1. Welcome to the Forums as the resident Fate fan, I've got only one recommendation - it's a slice of life, it dose have cute girls doing cute things.
  2. God rewatchable shows, it's not necessarily the same as shows I think are really, really good. For example Monster and Hunter x Hunter are great, but I would be hard pressed to call them very re-watchable. So, the shows I think are rewatchable are; Fate. Any of them really. I'm a big fan of Fate. Big surprise to everyone on here, I know. Psycho Pass is also a very rewatchable show. And it makes me feel smarter each time I watch it. Madoka Magica is another show I think is again really re-watchable. It such a one-of-a-kind show, and you always can see new bits of symbolism or hidden meaning in the choices made. Finally Steins;Gate is just so much fun to watch. The pacing of the show. Then it gets a second wind at the halfway point with its tonal shift. A great series.
  3. Fate/Apocrypha. Episode 17, when it turned out Rider of Black wasn't a girl. I was bamboozled, I was shocked, I was confused. Another one would be the ending of Berserk 1997. I went in blind, and the final episode was a complete gut punch. Didn't see it coming. Finally, it would have to be Wolfs Rain. I had no idea what the anime was about, the opening led me to believe it was a werewolf anime set in New York. I was so off. However, the final OVA was another turn I wasn't expecting, then again, I do like darker anime such as Evangelion, Monster, Pyscho Pass, Ergo Proxy and Madoka Magica. So, it actually propelled Wolfs Rain into one of my favourite series. Not top ten but its up thier.
  4. The Death Note re-watch has died. I've already watched it three times, but at this point the buddy I was showing it two has managed to make it to episode 8 out of 37 in two months. We did a lot better on the Attack on Titan watch. So, I'm probably going to continue with Yu Yu Hakusho and finish off the dark tournament arc and once I get through that I might do a re-watch of Fate Unlimited Blade Works (the series) to build the hype for December 31st and the release of Strange Fake. Still have no clue which site that special is streaming on. I'm sure they'll yet us all know at some point.
  5. A collection of the greatest Fate ships of all time. Artoria x Archer Ishtar x Sengo Muramasa Enkidu x Gilgamesh Achilles x Atlanta # Kitritsugu Emyia x Irisviel von Einzbern Richard 'The Lion Heart' x Ayaka Sajyou Mash x Ritsuka Nero x Hakuno Ruler x Sieg Jason x Medea Astolfo x Charlemagne
  6. I've only really watched anime dubbed, and I bet some of my picks might get a few people a hollering, but I liked all these anime in terms of the voice acting and some have some overlapping voice actors which is cool to see (or hear). Fate (all of them especially Zero, Unlimited Blade Works and Heaven Feel) Psycho Pass Steins;Gate Ergo Proxy Wolfs Rain Monster Madoka Magica Hunter x Hunter Yu Yu Hakusho Spy x Family Code Geass Made In Abyss Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue Thesis Gurren Lagann Neon Genesis Evangelion Space Battleship Yamato 2199 Berserk Baccanno!
  7. I've never done that... I've thought stuff similar to 'what are you doing', 'thats a cool exit' or when Astolfo was going up against the hanging gardens 'pleaae don't die'. But yeah never actually said anything outload.
  8. My all-time favourite anime antagonist has to be Johan Liebert from Monster, he's perhaps one of the most intimidating, well written and complex villains in any Manga or Anime. He truly is a one of the kind villains, and he's got no superpowers, no special abilities he's just an unhinged serial killer with some deep trauma. Shogo Makishima from Psycho Pass is truly one of the best anime villains out there. Whilst he a complete monster, a brutal killer, what builds sympathy and even admiration towards him from me is his philosophy. He's a social critic, capable of pointing out the huge moral and philosophical flaws of the society he was born in. Plus, he's my PFP on here, so I gotta give him his dues. Toguro Younger, looks like nothing more than a simple brute. However, the intelligence he displays really surprised me. He's very imposing, he's stoic and honourable in his own way. He is cunning and cruel. He really is a great Villian and a perfect antagonist for Urameshi. I've not seen how his story comes to an end, but he been a joy to watch so far. Finally got to peace out on a Fate villain, and no Fate villain comes closer to perfection than Kirei Kotomine. In Fate/Zero he goes through a great character development with the prompting of a certain King of Heroes, and during the following Stay Night his character is explored from several angles. Whilst always villainous, I wouldn't necessarily say I disagree with everything Kirei says or does. Also, I look forward to when we can see his return, as phase 2 of Grand Order might make use of his pesudo-servant from Rasputin. If he does return, I like to see how they further develop the relationship between Kirei and Shiro.
  9. And I forgot Shinya Kogami, from Pyscho Pass. An underate protagonist in an underrated anime. Shinya Kogami is the perfect lead due to how he contrasts and interacts with Shogo Makishima (one of the best anime antagonists of all times). Kogami is not a cutty cutter good guy, he can be abrasive, harsh, aggressive and cold but his strong sense of justice and desire for revenge really draw you in to his struggle.
  10. One of my personal favourites is Doctor Tenma from Monster. His slow character growth and evolution throughout the show is something truly special. He has to juggle slowly becoming a monster as he goes after the serial killer whose murderous acts forced him on the run from law enforcement. There's also a quest for redemption as the serial killer was a boy he saved during his career as a doctor, so he feels responsible for saving the boy who would grow up to become a Monster. Simon is also a character who goes on a massive journey throughout the course of Gurren Lagann going from a literal scared boy to a strong and honourable leader. He encapsulates the shows ideals and message in his strong development. Plus, he gets some awesome fight sequences where he goes all out and takes no shit. Madoka is also a really cool character that again is central to the message and theme of the show she's the lead in. As she struggles to come to grips in the face of the reality of being a Magical Girl, but in the end still comes through and does the right thing. And finally, Shirou Emyia, lover of swords and hero of justice. I like how Shirou is explored through the three routes, especially in Unlimited Blade Works where he is directly challenged and must overcome his own ideals and beliefs. I greatly appreciate the elements of deconstruction in his character, as his a more nuanced look on the Shonen protagonist - he's broken, idealistic and processed by a dream not his own but rather borrowed from another in an attempt to make up for his survivor's guilt. I'm looking forward to his return, hopefully in the Fate/Grand Order Lostbelt Phase 2 and will defiantly roll when his banner comes up.
  11. Legend of the Galactic Heroes is another good Space Opera series, there's two versions the original and the modern adaptation which is called The New Thesis.
  12. That is some schedule, holy crap. I never plan out what I'm watching in such detail. Currently I've made it to the semi-finals of the Dark Tournament Arc of Yu Yu Hakusho, watched the first episode of Spy x Family part 2 and will at some point continue the re-watch of Death Note. I've been watching/rewatching anime with friends. The first was Attack on Titan season 1 (none of us had seen that show) suggested by a friend who first and only foray into anime was Pokémon, my brother picked Death Note as his once we finished Attack on Titan... all so I can then pick Fate/Zero after that. I want to get them all through as much Fate as possible before the December premier of Fate/Strange Fake. If I can get them through Zero and Unlimited Blade Works at this point it'll be a small miracle.
  13. Using science to justify the matters of the heart. This is why 'Rin' fans never understand the full scoop of appreciation, respect and admiration we, based Saber worshippers, display. Also, as counter evidence I offer this. None other than the King of Heroes deemed Saber to be so beautiful that she belonged with him as one of his treasures. Gilgamesh > Science Therefore, Saber is best girl.
  14. So close, but we all know Saber is best girl. For she is the King of Knights and the defender of Britian. And is also precious.
  15. I just watched Fate Stay Night - Unlimited Blade Works. The movie version. It a little rushed, and the pacing is all over the place but all I can say is. I love swords.
  16. Wolf's Rain ending, end of Madoka Magica Rebellion and the end of the Chimera Ant arc. Also Spy X Family made me cry laughing.
  17. It's Fate so from the outside looking in, it always looks confusing. Trust me it not nearly as complex as it looks written out.
  18. Shirou Day Approaches, if you don't know what the day is, it basically a celebration of Shirou Emyia from Fate. Why? Something to do with Fate VN fans on Twitter of all places. So, what are your plans coming the next annual Shirou day? Did you even know it existed until just now? For me, my original plan was to sit a couple buddies through Fate Unlimited Blade Works so they could love swords as much as Shirou. But as we've yet to even make it through Death Note, that idea has sank like Emyia dreams of becoming a hero of justice. So now my new plan is to watch Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works - the movie from 2010.
  19. The Case Study of Vanitas seasons 1 and 2 is another Vampire show, I've only seen season 1 but it was pretty enjoyable if a little slow paced.
  20. Oh boy, well Otaku Gamer you may not have realised this but... You just asked my favourite question. The way I got into Fate was through Apocrypha, however that because I barely even knew what anime much less what Fate was all about. So my path isn't the norm, however I do know the quote on quote 'correct' path into walking into Hell. So, getting into Fate is firstly not as difficult as many of the Fate fans and anime fans in general make it out to be. Firstly, you have two equally valid choices. Either start with Fate/Zero or Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works. Basically Fate/Zero is the prequel to all the Fate/Stay Night series. I choose Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works as the first in that because it the most modern and most accessible of the three Stay Night stories. That's basically the easiest way to get into Fate. Pick one of the two ufotable shows and start from there. However, if you're feeling brave open the spoiler below for the rest of the series and what way to approach them;
  21. I like Halo for the campaign and whilst I'm mud at Halo on social slayer (that negative be 22 was a real bad match) I really like it for the custom games that were made on it by the community. Plus getting grilled by a middle age ex merchant navy halo player for single handedly throwing the match is one of the funniest memories I have in gaming. Also I have to hold out hope for Shirou, Charlamgne and Arcruid. I won Arthur and Odysseus so I might get lucky on one of the three.
  22. I've got four main games I play pretty frequently. The first is Halo Master Chief Collections - I've played Halo throughout the years as my 'main FPS' but I'm casual and rusty so don't expect me to be top of the leaderboard. I have some occasional great, exceptional games and the worst I've played was a match where I was negative 22. Meaning I single handedly gave the enemy victory. Fallout 3 and New Vegas and Knights of the Old Republic I and II are also games I frequently return too. Also, for the last year I've been playing Project Zomboid. It's a survival role playing game with zombies and multiplayer. And recently just gotten into Foxhole with the Inferno release. For mobile games... Its Fate/Grand Order. I've had some pretty successful pulls over the two years I've been playing. I've got EMYIA in the first roll they give you for free, I've also gotten Artoria, Artoira Alter and her Caster varient. I've even gotten Arthur Pendragon (the male Artoria from Prototype). I've also gotten Astolfo Rider and Saber class, Odysseus, Sigurd and Osakabehime. I'm currently gearing up for Shirou, Arcruid and Charlamagne. I doubt I'll get all three, or even all of them. But I'm hoping.
  23. I never watched any in my childhood. It was in my late teens, early adulthood so around either eighteen or nineteen when I watched my first anime. My brother showed me Yamato 2199 (remake) and then we watched Goblin Slayer, Legend of the Galactic Heroes (remake). We rewatched the three shows sometime just before the release of the second seasons of Yamato and Legend of the Galactic Heroes came out. At that time, I didn't consider myself an 'anime fan' just a guy who watched an occasional anime. I think Covid ended up delaying Goblin Slayer season 2 and the movie. At some point I had watched Evangelion. I remember attempting it once when I was a lot younger, around the time I was revisiting the Halo 3 scene - so some time after the Master Chief Collection failure of a launch. However, I never finished it at that time, work or something came up. My brother sometime after we'd watched LOTGH, Goblin Slayer and Yamato decided to watch it and then I rewatched it with him. I didn't finish the show that time either, as my brother explained that the last two episodes come after End of Evangelion. So, we watched that film first, then it wasn't until a year later when I watched the final two episodes. I can't remember if we rewatched it all and then I finally saw the two ending episodes or if we legitimately just sat me through the last two episodes for completion's sake. Craziest part was all that was over the course of two years. Then I watched Fate/Apocrypha when I was around 21. During the Covid pandemic. That's when I saw the light and descended into a full on weeb. Because suddenly I was watching way more shows. I don't know if Nasu had placed some kind of hypnosis in this show, but damn it awoke something inside of me. Not only did it inspire me to watch way, way more anime than I had previously but also made me a full-on Fate fan. Which is a strange entry anime - but well it is what it is. As an added introspective this was the first anime, I choose to watch solo, no arm pulling by someone else. I didn't realize it back then but;
  24. 'The anime that dosen't exist' With a fan given moniker like that it begs to be sought out and watched.
  25. Another good one I just remembered is Paranoia Agent. The four you've not seen yet were all written by Gen Urobuchi. Of those I've not yet seen Phantom, but if it by the Butcher it must be pretty good. Another show I've heard of is RapXephon. Not watched that one yet, but it's a Mecha show which shares similarities to Evangelion from my understanding.
