I have seen a few anime TV shows when I was a kid. Things like Dragon Ball Z and Pokémon, but I haven't seen anything modern yet. Are Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist overrated? Does anyone have any recommendations? Should I subscribe to Crunchyroll to watch shows like this?

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is pretty good, and it's the more accurate one to the manga.

The first one was completed before the manga finished I believe so they made up a lot of the latter half of the story, which isn't terrible, I just prefer Brotherhood.

Both are worth a watch though.

 

I also enjoyed Cowboy Bebop, though I came late to the party on that one so it wasn't new when I first watched it.

It didn't quite hit the bar that I set for it given how loved it is by internet people, but it is certainly very good.

 

I've been slacking on the anime front in recent years, adult life and all that jazz, but here's what I've seen that I thought was good in one way or another:

 

Hunter X Hunter

The Seven Deadly Sins

Attack on Titan

Kill la Kill

Parasyte

One Punch Man

Devilman Crybaby

Sword Art Online (though it has some weak points I still like it)

I only watch hentai porn as far as anime goes, so I'll just opt out and agree with Affray.

I never really got into cartoon characters banging each other, but to each their own.

It's going to date me, and I know it exists, but I'd only really be interested in Jane Jetson or Velma in that regard.

Velma over Daphne? That's the first time I've heard someone say that.

Velma is where it's at.

Intelligence has always grabbed my attention over physical appearance.

I like a tall redhead with attitude as much as the next guy, but Velma hits a chord with me.

Short, smart, cute instead of sexy, thick hips wrapped in a skirt and a turtleneck that she definitely wears to conceal an obviously considerable bust.

Sign me right the fuck up.

 

After typing that I've come to the realisation that I just described my wife.

Son of a bitch, I think Scooby Doo dictated my preferences in women.
