Probably because most anime characters are created with a certain look in mind, and most people can't pull off the look. Like cool ikemen MCs having long hair goes with their feminine features, but doesn't actually work for anyone. Sometimes when I see a guy cosplay as Minato from P3 I cringe so hard....

In other news, I kicked a step on my way up to my room and lost the big toe toenail, it didn't hurt(much) but now I have the privilege of regrowing it from scratch. A quick Google tells me it's going to take 6 months.... Oh boy!

I did that a few years ago.

 

 

.......yeah it takes a while. However the main nail that will cover most of your toe nail will come back in about 2 weeks and from then on, it's a non-issue

 

It hurt a lot for me...... -_-

It did hurt. Just not as much as I thought it would.

I'm fine with the waiting, just not with the keep it wrapped up and sanitized for 6 months part. :/

I don't like the pre-made costumes...they tend to look really fake in my opinion. Hence why I didn't get a pre-made Mayuri costume that costs ~$80 and looks like a fluorescent blue colour. The anime itself has kind of a gloomy overcast anyway, so the fluorescent blue is totally out of place.

Coloured wigs also look extremely fake. They're either extremely bright, extremely dull/pastel, or pastel and too shiny. Yuki Nagato cosplays are a good example of that and they all look meh.


^ that just ain't right


The merchandise I got. I really like the Totoro clock. :3

Yeah I guesss...but man does it sting, plus after the first day. Your toenail starts to fill with a slightly oily white fluid that you need to keep wrapped up and kinda drain.

Neon Genesis Evangelion, Sword Art Online, Accel World, Chobits, Card Captor Sakura, this sounds good to begin with.

post #111068 of 125400

FANTASTIC ! thanks a bunch for the blazing fast reply, ill definitely check all of those out!

I would not recommend NGE but each person has their own tastes. The series is quite thick and doesn't really fall under constant action. There is a lot of action, but its rather secondary to psychological themes and what not.

 

Try

 

Trigun

Sword Art Online (like he said)

Kill La Kill

Cowboy Bebop

Claymore

Code Geass

Macross Frontier

 

 

These are all industry favs

 

 

And of course. Try out an episode or two of One Piece, Gintama, Bleach, and Naruto. Not all of us like the non-uber Mainstream anime but many do like it. 

post #111070 of 125400
Gintama is my fav out of all those listed in the mainstream ones. Funny as heck, but when it comes to serious fight, boy do they deliver.
post #111071 of 125400

THANKS MAN!, im 180 episodes into bleach so i will continue to do "the grind" , then i will start looking at more shorter anime, that is the second code geass recommendation ive had so ill be definitely checking that out once i finish bleach off (or in between when i get bored) and as for NGE, i can take a bit of low action as long as its still entertaining, but it being a "thick" series would make it lower on my anime priority list  

post #111072 of 125400

ill definitely check out gintama as i love comedic anime (fairy tail is just fantastic that way) and good fight scenes are a nice bonus

...It's quite thick, but hey, don't let me discourage you. Some learn to love it etc etc

 

I personally couldn't.....like at all.

 

The movies are sooo sooo much better though. They are actually some of the best movies I've seen in anime (the third movie was quite meh, but it had to be I guess). I would recommend holding off on NGE for a bit. Wait until the 4th movie comes out so you can marathon it.

 

But yeah, Movie 1 and Movie 2 (especially movie 2) are amonst the best I've seen

 

Considering Death Note, AOT on your list. Code Geass is quite highly recommended :)

 

If you like ecchi and fan service. Drop High School of the Dead on your list as well

post #111074 of 125400

i shall!, next anime i will watch will be code geass, ive only heard good things about HSOTD so thats also high on my list
