Watching E7 after Eva would be a nice balance, since a lot of people compare E7 to Eva. I don't want to spoil anything, but E7 is, at times, as heart wrenching as Eva, and the characters, specially a certain pink-haired war machine, are just an engaging. Renton even has a Shinji moment when, after obliterating a KLF realizes that ... well, you'll have to watch now. Episode 26 will blow you away, and Episode 48 will make you cry--unless you are completely soulless, that is.

*is completely soulless, though still found episode 48 to be the best in the series anyway*

Anemone was my favorite character in E7, I think.
He was warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, more than a man. There is no measuring Muad'Dib's motives by ordinary standards. In the moment of his triumph, he saw the death prepared for him, yet he accepted the treachery. Can you say he did this out of a sense of justice? Whose justice, then? Remember, we speak now of the Muad'Dib who ordered battle drums made from his enemies' skins, the Muad'Dib who denied the conventions of his ducal past with a wave of the hand, saying merely: "I am the Kwisatz Haderach. That is reason enough."

I've only seen a few episodes of E7, but aren't Renton and Eureka more or less like more well-adjusted/balanced versions Shinji and Rei (that fall in love this time around... ^^; ), or am I just tripping?

If you took all the most boring parts of Eva, then made the concept even more absurd (have a giant robot that surfs in the air!), and finally removed the plot and interesting bits, you would have E7.

I wont kill you. That's why I've got ferrets.

I'm guessing you haven't seen past the first 5 episodes or so?

BTW: Renton and Eureka are so not well-adjusted. It gets pretty bad actually, and Holland being so violently overprotective of her doesn't help. Seriously, though. Anemone is the reason to watch. Anyone who grins maniacally while shooting a giant flaming energy ball of doom at you from point-blank-range while yelling "Melt away, melt away. Your brain's gonna MELT AWAY!" is epic win.

In my opinion it's pretty funny how you can track Eureka's attitude and emotions through th state of her hair. I'd say this series is similar to NGE in having a bizzare ending, except this one is bizzare because it is the most ridiculously corny thing I have ever seen.

That's basically what I got out of watching the series. I may have had a little animosity towards it because I first saw it on Adult Swim, maybe the first 3 or 4 episodes, and developed a great disdain for the dub, before grabbing the 50 episodes off the internet. The ending seemed like it was something epic but by that point I wasn't interested at all and just watched it so I can get to the end. I'm also not a big fan of long series.

Speaking of what Anime to watch... I´m surprised to see a lot of Eva fans here in Mexico (vacation ftw!)

While the forums were down, Code-E and Nanatsuiro Drops got subbed, these are now in my queue.

Also, got tired of waiting for new episodes for the shows I'm watching to get subbed so i decided to look for something obscure to watch. Watched the first episode of Nanami-chan and it looks pretty good.

Re-watching Boogiepop Phantom... Really interesting one. I think the animation is rather drab, but the bizarre style, complex interlocking narrative, and just plain weirdness kinda draws me to it again.

Just finished watching the masterpiece know as Diebuster yesterday. God that ruled. Next I plan on watching Texhnolyze, because some jerk in the recommendations' thread said it was good. :wink:

Whoever could that have been? :)

It's not everyone's cup of tea: Slow with somewhat unlikable characters, but complex and utterly brilliant. I recommend you take it in slow (only a few ep. a day).

Having caught Paprika at the film festival, I'm finally getting around to watching Paranoia Agent. 4eps in and you can tell that they are the same person's work.

Paprika reminded me a LOT of Paranoia Agent, those two are a lot more similar than other Satoshi Kon works, such as Perfect Blue, especially on a thematic level.

Aaaand while the board was down, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann bagged another victim. :lol: Only up to Episode 3 thus far, though... Ah well.

I haven't really been watching anime recently, because of some bandwidth issues, but I've been watching an episode of Higurashi here and there every once and a while, that show is amazing.

Gonna have to go pick up Gurren Lagann again at some point too.
