Sword Art Action

I’m going to stop saying, “I’m starting to watch anime now” because I’m pretty sure I’ve left that station a while back.  I’m pretty full blown into it.  I’ve spent the last couple of months (maybe even years :/) catching up on what people are saying the best anime shows the networks had to offer and it has lead me to places high and low ranging from Beyond the Boundary to Kill la Kill to Code Geass.  One particular anime I had heard about over and over again was Sword Art Online (SAO).  I read a quick summary and it was said to be about a group of MMO players getting stuck in a virtual world where if they died in that world, they died in real life.  They would have to band together to take out bosses if they ever wished to leave their virtual prison.  That seemed really intriguing, so I finally took a shot at it.

So watching Attack on Titan heralded in an era of trying to catch up on some of the best anime Japan had to offer.  I tried and tried very hard in filling the void of incredible storytelling, beautiful animation, and compelling characters Attack on Titan held.  My journey has led me high and low with a lot of time invested.  I’ve recently finished three more anime, all recommended from close friends (Hybrid Zone) and some of my favorite websites like Kotaku.  Here’s more coverage on what I watched, what I liked, and what I didn’t like.   I’m also opening the floor for even more recommendations.

Recommendation reminders to keep in mind: I like to keep things short, with whole series ending after 24 or 40 episodes.  I like recent stuff, because animation has really progressed since then.  I’m looking for some good drama.  Everything I’ve watched lately has mechas and fantasy.  Maybe toning that genre back would be good.  Unless you’ve got something I REALLY need to see.
