Just post anything anime related.

I'll start with a fun video, it's required you know some phrases though.

I want to see like 90% of those, but I don't know the names of any of them (except for Golden Time of which I am watching)...

I noticed a severe lack of Kill La Kill. It was in there for only 2 short scenes (one of the scissor blade, the other where the kids try to attack Ryuko).
Kill La Kill makes an entire episode about their way to school, without it being boring. Admittedly, it does involve an armored car with an extendable chain gun.
So overall, it might be too intense for some people, but what do you expect when you take a large part of the group that worked on Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann? These guys know how to turn it up beyond 11.

That video seems to not be the original. The orignial (for youtube) is this
It has the names of the songs ( Xx-The Intro , then The Temper Trap-Love Lost and then The Vaccines-If you Wanna) as well as the names of each anime in the scenes they come in.
 
 On a side note, here's the 2012 one here .

EDIT: if someone could tell me the secret to formatting hyperlinks in words (for this forum), then please do so.
EDITEDIT: Ninja'd just as I corrected it :/
EDITEDITEDIT: It seems none of the links actually work. And I've no idea why ???

Objectionable content: Significant

 ??? kill la kill isn't nearly as bad as PSG on that regard...



also:
Valvrave
http://tvtropes.org explains it best but it can be summed up with *** AWSOME
(first episode is a trick, its kinda bad but second episode onwards gets progresively more valvrave)

just watched redline for the first time, its amazingly good, like a japaneese version of wacky races made for adult swim...

Did you enjoy "My little battleship: shipping is magic"?
First watch normal Ending (time 22:45) http://kissanime.com/Anime/Aoki-Hagane-no-Arpeggio-Ars-Nova/Episode-006?id=57672
Second watch TRUE Ending (time 22:45) http://kissanime.com/Anime/Aoki-Hagane-no-Arpeggio-Ars-Nova/Episode-007?id=58321

p.s. I couldn't find ED so my only option was to link some "animeonline" website.

As a matter of fact I do like to watch anime, and feel like sharing with You one, exeptional title. But first - worlds of warrnings!

First of all it is old stuff. Yes, from times when second in command on space ship is not teenage sexy girl. So if one can not live without those - it will be not Your cup of tea. Also do not expect it to be good quality from graphical standard - first epizodes were made in 1982... So yeah... No good quality video if compared to modern titles like outstanding "Titan Attack" or even better (in my opinion) "Broken Blade"/"Breake Blade".

Second, and moreover at the same time - it is very serious anime. Comic situations are rare, or occasional at best. For some people it will be advantage - for others disadvantage. Personally I think it is positive aspect of it. But if You like to watch anime which are funny and have hi comedy value, stay away from this - not Your cup of tea, unless You want to try something diffrent than comedy :)

Third thing... It is 110 episodes long. Each episode is like 24 minutes long. So in comparison to most anime - this one should be considered to be long. Of course it may not outclass in that aspect titles like "Naruto" or "Bleach" or "Bold and Beautiful"... Wait - that last is not anime ;) So if You hope to watch something good, but also short - sorry, not Your cup of tea again :)

The title of anime is "Legend of the Galactic Heroes".

I know - title is kind of lame... But anime is not - trust me on that one :) Here You can read some english review of it:
http://www.themanime.org/viewreview.php?id=494

Here You can find it:
http://kissanime.com/Anime/Legend-of-the-Galactic-Heroes
and if some episodes do not work, than try on this one:
http://animeseed.com/index.php/anime-pages/legend-of-the-galactic-heroes/
Second page have a bit worse quality of videos (I think...) and have only first 49 episodes.

I hope that You will like it, providing that anyone will decide to watch it ;)

I love old-style animes ala Blue Gender in both artstyle and the way they approach themes more directly without needing to have a weird harem-situation.. and i have had Legend of the Galactic Heroes on my list for ages. Meh, you know what, putting it to download, gonna see it this weekend. Thanks for the prod.

Oh, and to also contribute something. Ghost In The Shell, both StandAloneComplex series and the first movie (not hot on the second one, went too Ergo Proxy with it). Am waiting for them to finalise Arise and see it back to back.

Speaking of LotGH, I still have 3 episodes left to watch... Stopped there since I somehow didn't have the 3 last episodes (torrent lied to me?! had since early 2000's). I downloaded the rest ages ago and I still haven't pulled myself to watch the last ones.

Yang Wan Lee and.... Damn, I already forgotten the others names... Lohenheim? Lohengreim? What was the fortress named again... Isoldegrimm? -.-" I know it when I see the name :P Good plot and cliffhangers. Definitely top 1 even though I haven't finished it yet >_>

I don't keep a track of anime lists, don't hate me for it. I feel that Haruhi series is still among my top... 30 despite the infamous, infinite eight episodes of repeats which Yuki somehow kept her sanity. My head blew off when I saw the movie (Yuki~~<3), great soundtrack and it tied it smooth with all the episodes, mind blown!

Everyone should have seen this AMV! (spoilers!)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhJk0rVa6qo

Looking at my playlist in youtube... over 70% of AMV works has been removed... And my fav AMV maker was deleted too :( I was naive thinking that works would like stay forever in youtube, I should have downloaded the videos. Now I only get to enjoy the uber low quality in a foreign video site. Understandable if you don't want to visit unknown sites. All works by same author. Kara no Kyoukai, so probably spoilers?

Girl leapt through time, I'd totally eat that pudding all over again! (spoilers!)

Same song again, except it's the anime original ending, and it isn't all that bad either, quite moody bits :( I always get tear-eyed when the birds comes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlB_g4ltv7A

AAAnnnd... Top original OP/ED? I'd pick these 3, wait... The 3rd one never happened, never existed, erase it from your minds.

That character in the cover bears a remarkable resemblence to Kanade from Angel beats.
