I'm failing to realize how it could be thought of as anything but terrible. There is absolutely nothing in that show worth watching.Rocketshipper (post: 1496472) wrote:wha? Macross Zero!? no way. Granted, it may be my least favorite of the various macross versions (yes, even more than Macross II) but its not terrible. And its got great animation

An anime I can't personally stand but I understand its merit is Full Metal Panic. I like the action but everytime it switches to its slap stick comedy moments, its kind of jarring. The fan service also really took me out of the serious moments

It's the third season right? Do I need to watch the second season beforehand?
lolwut, say what you will about the plot, the animation is some of the best ever.the_wolfs_howl (post: 1497386) wrote: Akira is a classic and influential and all that, but to me it was just ugly. The animation/coloring, sure, but also the story and characters. I didn't enjoy a single thing about it except that I finally knew what everyone was talking about and was able to experience such an influential work.

[spoiler]That whole thing about needing pure water from some glacier in Iceland or wherever? Yeah, you can get pure water without doing all that. I used it in my chemistry classes all the time. And being able to pressurize it like that? >.>" I also completely hated the characters.[/spoiler]
Akira was a fabulous manga- I give it a 9/10 myself, but I've heard a lot of iffy things about the anime since they really cut a whole lot from the story. I loathe Steamboy, though.

But I think a lot of it is kind of stupid and/or unexplained, not to mention taking the depressing ending of the series and making it ten times more depressing. I generally try to pretend it doesn't exist.
I would like to point out that "Amestris" is not based on Germany. While the country of the first anime is definitely supposed to be alternate dimension Nazis, the country in that anime is unnamed. Amestris, the name of the country in Arakawa's manga and in Brotherhood, is based off of England, while the genocide that most people assume is a Holocaust parallel is actually based on the plight of the Ainu. Both of these are mentioned in the omakes of the manga.Vii (post: 1497462) wrote:Lol, the first time I heard that Amestris was based on Germany, I always thought it would be funny if the State Alchemists were Nazi's in real life. Guess who started laughing halfway through the movie...XD.
Side note/tangent for the interested: There is a line of thinking advocated by Helen McCarthy that the Japanese place both England and the English on something of a pedestal. Instead of going into the various reasons behind this theory, just listen to her talk about it (all-too-briefly).Mr. Hat'n'Clogs (post: 1497463) wrote:Amestris, the name of the country in Arakawa's manga and in Brotherhood, is based off of England
