I thought it would be cool to start an anime thread to discuss our favorite animes

I'll start with one that ii just finished watching. Clannad and clannad after story.

I thought it was a very touching show. With a nice blend of humor and drama with after story being the more emotionally driven of the two seasons

What do you guys think or if you guys haven't seen it feel free to bring up your favorite

No.

Anime are cartoons made by Japan for Japan first and foremost. Avatar was an American series created in America, with its animation only outsourced to an Asian studio, like how Batman, The Simpsons, and the G1 cartoon were.

Then I can officially say, I have seen no animes.

Wait, unless Zoids, Medabots, or Gundam were? I'm not sure if those were American made or Japanese made.

Unicron Trilogy was Japanese made, only dubbed to English later. :smile:

Not to talk about Digimon. :)

I'll come back to this as I try to collect a list of all the anime I have seen. :)
