BurntToShreds Yu Yu Hakusho was good in that there was actual progress from episode to episode. A decent amount of fights actually finished in the episode that they were started in.

Fathom Zero I think everyone in this thread should be nuked, except for Metal Militia.

I'm willing to die for a good cause.

MetalMilitia Can't believe this has made it to three pages. Naruto is popular for one reason; because a lot of people are stupid.

eliz.lanier I've been wondering this same thing myself. Saw it on TV not long ago and all I could think was,"What? This is what so many people are going apeshit for?"

It seems like something I would've liked when I was younger, but a good amount of the people that love it so much are in their late teens, twenties, it's sort of sad.

Same thing with Inuyasha. I watched the first few episodes and I just couldn't get into it. I liked that dude Miroku because the idea of a perverted monk amuses me. But all the other characters, especially the main chick, have absolutely no personality. It's just a bunch of overused cliches thrown together.

Probably the simplest thing is just to say,"People like different things." because really I can't think of any valid reasons why people are so obsessed with some of these shows.

Because they're looking for anime to watch, and the anime would in turn lead them to the manga. Isn't that one of the main justifications for making an anime out of a manga?

Phoenix Gamma Tower of Druaga's a pleasant surprise. It's based on an old arcade game by Namco, and tucks in gamer humor here and there without being all retarded about it, save for the first episode, which is a straight out parody of all things Japan.

Aside from that, I'm not too into anime. Haruhi Suzumiya (awesome), Gurren Lagann (yay testosterone), and a movie or two. The shonens, shojos, and harems are all derivative crap recycled over and over.

There aren't that many characters to remember. And even a monkey can remember 7 things.

Blasted Child For anyone who hasn't seen Naruto, here's a break down of an ordinary episode:

1. A good and a bad character stand before eachother in an arena, ready to engage in a fight. Fifteen minutes pass while people in the audience talk about why the two fighters hate eachother, and what their special abilities are, just to remind the viewers.
2. Here follows a scene for the girls: A young female friend of the good fighter remembers their childhood together, preferably on a flowery meadow. Overly nostalgic emotions are slapped in the face of the viewers. There will be plenty of circular, plate-sized mouths, representing laughter and/or crying.
3. The two fighters remind eachother and the audience why they hate eachother, and what their special abilities are.
4. Flashback to an episode where the bad guy killed the good guy's friend. Insert sad emoticon. Even though characters die all the time, every death will be followed by endless scenes of girls crying, tears mixed with stars and more flashbacks to flowery meadows.
5. Fighter one uses his special ability. It can be something along the lines of "The ten tentacles of moon-shadow" or "The secret dragon's sand-castle-whirlwind-flute". Whatever the writers fancied in their state of puerile, stoned mindlessness.
6. The next episode is plugged, with the promise of revealing the outcome of the battle.
7. The episode ends. Listen to a japanese song full of shallow clichées like "Trust in the love of a loving bird of freedom, etc"
8. Next episode; start from 1 again.
