    New Animes and Mangas

    Post by quater

    Okay, so many of you are probably wondering, "What's new in the world of Anime and Manga?"

    See, I know how you guys are. Many of you are probably tiring of the Big 3. You never gave One Piece a chance, so you don't know that it's phenomenal. (Insert cliche excuses here: It's long! It's got bad art in the beginning! I don't have time!)

    And many of us can all agree Naruto is not the Naruto we used to know and, well tolerate. Neji hasn't done anything in 50000 chapters, nor has Shino, or any other good side character. The author of Naruto has just kind of lost it.

    And Bleach isn't as fun as it used to be. We're not seeing Ichigo Versus Grimmjaw Awesome anymore. It's gone down the path of fillers and lame. This battle in Karakura town has been going on for two and a half years now. I think we're all getting a bit tired.

    So maybe you're thinking, "I don't know man, Anime isn't as great as it used to be, I can't think of any good shows and stuff."

    WRONG.

    You're just not watching the new good shows.

    But don't worry, that's why Q is here.

    So I will tell you the good new series that you need to read and watch if you want to be in the know about the best new stuff.

    We'll start off with two obvious ones: Code Geass and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.



    Code Geass: It's the new Deathnote in awesome. It's got amazing battles. It's really a perfect series. And it's the only Mecha Anime I ever tolerated. It's beautifully drawn, aciton packed, and full of extremely intense intelligent battles. And the Ost is beyond words amazing. If you aren't on this series, which is 2 years old or so, then you really need to. Also, it's supported by Pizza Hut, which is where I work. See, I work at an awesome place.







    Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood: It starts off a bit slow, but once it starts to get rolling it's genius. The Ost isn't as good as the original Ost (Though it's still great), but that is the only part that lacks. Everything else is way better than the original. The fights, the characters, the story. Everything is much better. And since the legend that is Full Metal Alchemist, one of the biggest Animes and Mangas of all time, is going to be ending, you should watch it while it's still hot. I could spend a lot of time praising it, but any of you who have seen my avatars know how great it is artwise and battlewise. One thing I will say that really sets it out is the lack of fillering. Most episodes in Anime come with a bunch of flashbacks and fillers that are mandatory, especially of a series as big and famous as Full Metal Alchemist. But not FMA Brotherhood. The series is lightning quick, and you almost have to hang on with how fast it flashes through the story.






    Now, these two are obvious and I had to get through because sadly, despite how good these two are, most of you haven't seen them. Now for some newer series that aren't about to end or already over.



    1. Durarara - Strange name, but that's the only weird part. DRRR is beastly. It has a huge cast of characters, from the amazing and angry Shizuo, the calm and loveable Simon, the conniving Izaya, and the mysterious Celty, as well as our mandatory school age protagonists, this series sucks you in fast. It starts out on a quick and eerie pace and pulls you in with an unbelievable storyline and ingenius characters that really make you wonder. The story is about gangsters, too (WOTNopolis copyrighter!) But it's really good. It's highly suggested. And the art and Ost are bar none, amazing. Even the opener and ending themes, which I usually ignore, are hard to beat. There's really nothing to complain about with this series, and I find myself excited every week for the next episode in this fantastic story. Really, the only way to show how awesome it is just to tell you to watch it. (Watch 2 episodes of this and you'll be hooked. That's all it took for me.)



    Durarara is amazing because of the way it combines life in an insane city with real modern life, including the heavy use of chatting between main characters in a fairly cool way. Watch it!



    2. Fairy Tail - This storyline is the complete opposite of DRRR. Where DRRR is serious, mysterious, and complex, Fairy Tail is simple, straightforward, and light. And that is exactly what makes Fairy Tail so great. Fairy Tail is not something that will make you challenge your thoughts on life, and it won't make you think much. The storylines are hardly deep and life altering. But the Anime (The manga less so) overflows with a heroic energy that makes you cheer for Fairy Tail till the end. The story has tons of excitement and it's almost impossible not to love all the quirky and hilarious characters. In many ways, the series is similar to One Piece. Artistically, it has many people commenting on it's One Piece similarities. It's fantastical wild setting, too. But what it has most in common with One Piece, that I like, is that even in the middle of battle you'll find yourself laughing at the characters, then cheering for them when they win. If you're looking for something to pick you up when you're down and something to give you tons of energy and excitement, Fairy Tail is what you want to watch. Note: The Anime is better than the Manga, in my opinion. Watch the first 30 episodes of the Anime that they have done, then start reading the Manga. Don't read a few chapters of the Manga then say it's no good. Also, give it a few episodes, because the first couple are funny but slow (Much like OP)



    This one isn't a teaser, just a taste of some of the music. I find it impossible not to love that music. ^_^



    3. Bakuman - This series is a manga, about Mangas. It's going to be made into an Anime, soon, though. This series isn't a fighter like the others, and is technically a love story. But you wouldn't notice it. From a guy who isn't much into Romance, I can tell you this series is great. The story illuminates tons of things you didn't know about being a Mangaka or making Animes, while being intense and fun the whole way. There's a certain lively energy in the series that is hard to define. And the author is the master of Cliff hangers, literally constantly leaving you in a state of suspense waiting for the next chapter. The author is also the same as the one who wrote Deathnote, so you know the art and style is going to be great. I started this one a while back, and have been reading it now for 40 chapters (weekly basis) and I can say I am very glad I got into it. It's a great series and lot's of fun. It's not a fighter, but the drama is very real and very intense at times. The main characters are always on the ropes, and the storyline, though it takes a while to get into, really starts to build it's own style of momentum. It's different, but it's certainly going to be a great series of it's own standing.



    4. Psyren - If Fairy Tail is known for being like One Piece, then Psyren is known for being like Bleach. It's art and stories do have many similarities, but in my humble opinion, Psyren stands a shot at beating Bleach. Where bleach gets stuck in battles that last forever and slow storylining, Psyren rips through the pages and creates fast paced awesome battles. Psyren also does something that is really unusual. Most stories start out bright and happy and start to head sad (Bleach, One Piece, Naruto, Deathnote) this one goes the opposite route. It starts out very dark and is heading towards a heroic happiness. It's very unusual and very cool. It has no plans for being an Anime, sadly, but the Manga is great on it's own. Don't just take my word for it, take it from Yoyo who pretty much read the whole series in two nights. What originally got me to read the series was that a character in it was called: Nemesis Q (interestingly there is a later character called Yoyo). The series is intense and very cool. I think it stands a shot, especially if the Anime is ever made and it's good, at being very big. The storyline is intricate and interesting, involving a bit of time travel (not confusing) and a mystery of how the world ends.

    And that's that. These are the big new series that I've seen. If you know of some other new series that are really good, post em below and I'll check em out. I always love something new that's good. ^_^

    Anyway, I put this up because I know a lot of people feel that there isn't a lot new coming out, and a lot of you are probably drifting away from Anime and Manga. Let's face it, the big 3 are ending their reign as superior (One Piece is the only one that won out) and without broadcasts like Toonami it's hard to figure out what is going to fill the gaps.

    So that is why I posted this. For you guys to know what the next big series are. And these 6 (especially the last 4, which are newer) are definitely going to be awesome and legend (wait for it, and I hope you're not lactose because it ends with) dary! [How I met your mother quote :P ]

    Also: The last two didn't get videos cause they're not Animes, yet. But Bakuman will be soon. ^_^ And I would be surprised if Psyren takes more than a year to get it's own.

    With Anime and Manga, don't ever give up on the first episode (Said that even though he's guilty of doing it). Because the first episode is never that great.

    DURARARA!! <33
    Izaya is the awesomest. Actually, the first time I saw him I thought he had homosexual tendencies because of the way he dressed. BUT HIS PHILOSOPHIES. <33

    Psyren = <3.
    Started it lastyearish? Still hooked.

    FAIRY TAIL. <333
    At first I thought it was a copy off of OnePiece, but IT IS YUMMY. <3

    Katekyo Hitman Reborn's good too. D:
    It's kind of crappy in the beginning, but it really redeems itself in the Varia arc. <33

    I love Durarara too. Izaya in Episode 2 is so fantastic that he pretty much is the reason I kept the series going. Everyone else became awesome over time. But he was instant greatness.

    Psyren: It's really cool. I didn't know you read it, Death ^_^

    Fairy Tail = A total copy off OP. But it's so blatant about it that I don't mind, and the story itself and the characters are all so fun that I've just lived with it. It's kind of cool to see that OP influences other works. ^_^ Loke for the Win!

    I tried Katekyo Hitman Reborn but after 3 episodes gave up.

    I would only add to the anime: Dragon ball Kai, its dragon ball Z redone (something the best series should get in the future sometime, when they are done, redone without any fillers)

    and for manga: Bloody Monday Series 1 +2
    Akumetsu (made by teh people who did death note)
    Ares

    Well they are still good mangas, Bloody Monday is a suspense thriller mystery type
    Akumetsu has a more action comedy murderous feel

    sort of like an evil batman killing politicians

    I don't really see myself reading those series, for some reason. Just a thought. I've considered picking up Ares but I don't think I will. ^_^

    I don't see myself watching Dragonball Kai, either, for I don't really dig the Dragon Ball Series~

    I tried to avoid Mangas, actually. I was going for anime, that's why I only put two mangas up. Psyren cause it's great, and Bakuman cause it's different and will be an Anime soon!

    That's why it was a general statement, and not specific to one person, because I know you haven't started reading them and probably won't soon
