    Darker Than Black is really good dubbed; I actually prefer it dubbed. I know it does limit your multitasking opportunities, but you'll appreciate the anime more if you treat it special and not like how we treat our western entertainment.

    Still though, most anime episodes are only ~25min long so it's not the hugest commitment. silly

    You mean to say, Futurama isn't special. Oh, I hope there's no anime adaption of that ever.

    No serious brotherhood is best one, i'm also a fan of the fate series :'D

    Inb4 everyone says clannad and angel beats in there list, will it happen Shrug 
    .........You have no idea what I meant do you?

    I was saying FMA:B isn't a different one, it is THE one. If you read the manga like I have, you'd know it was the proper story. The first FMA anime is just a shadow of the actual story imo.

    Reaper is doubtless gonna come online and fight the false anime's corner though silly
    Dang it I dont really read manga so I didn't know, also the last time i watched anything FMA related was like 3 years ago. Also yes the fate series are AMAZING! Im actually in the middle of rewatching Fate/zero right now. devil

    How so?  With people saying they like dubs?  Or with western properties getting anime adaptations?

    EDIT: Also, did I miss an FMA vs Brotherhood discussion?

    If Stitch isn't with Lilo, then something's wrong. Something's way wrong. But on the other hand, western shows aren't bad, they just don't have as many good animations.

    It's a different continuity and therefore can be ignored if you so choose. This isn't just an anime thing, this is a nerd thing in general silly

    But yeah, western animation doesn't have many quality shows, and the ones that exist tend to follow similar patterns. I think I talked about this earlier in the thread actually straight face

    You know how awkward it is to have that play while someone enters your room, especially when your sound is almost all the way up.

    No. Why is it awkward? Are you ashamed or something? silly

    Trying watching Electromagnetic Girlfriend by yourself and having a non-anime person come in. I'm not ashamed, but I think it's really awkward for those who...don't understand.

    I think there is a little difference between watching an anime and having a picture of a small animated girl sing some thing that sounds like "Ah ah ahh haa haa ah ahh" also I wouldn't really connect the feeling of awkwardness to being ashamed of something.

    Probably the most awkward anime thing anyone's walked in on me on was the second Berserk movie during

    Spoiler:

    Me and one of my roommates had been watching 45 minutes of an epic adventure of violence, and it would be that one scene when my third roomie decides to come home...

    Maria+Holic has some parts where it'd be bad if someone, mostly family as they aren't interested in anime, walked in. I mean just listen to the opening

    Friends, however, will totally understand and if anything they'd start watching it with me.

    One of my favorite YouTube comments ever was on one of the openings to Hello Kitty:

    "I keep porn on alt-tab in case someone walks into the room while I'm watching this".

    Hahahaha! 

    That said, if you REALLY want to annoy someone, bust out that 10 hours of yuki yuki yuki earlier in this thread...or pick something from that channel that is even worse (yes, there are a number of other things on his channel that are grating enough that I would actually pick yuki spam over it).

    I can't do it unfortunately; I use a headset (directional sound for gaming is a good thing).  I admit I would be a little embarrassed though since most people who know me in person don't know the full extent to which I follow anime and I'm almost certain they'd give me a hard time about it.  They just assume 100% of my time is spent on gaming and making youtube videos, and don't realize the extent of anime/manga.  Somewhat annoyingly, my sister and brother in law actually watch a good bit anime but they're not comfortable talking about it and generally won't watch it in front of other family members or most of their friends either (or even with me a lot).  My brother in law is the least awkward in this regard.

    My super nerd and athletic sides have always created somewhat of a dichotomy in my case; for me it's easiest to simply stay with whatever topic is at hand and do my best to read people's interests.

    You know that good-->bad-->so bad it's good-->so bad it's terrible trope?  I do a pretty good job with that on the awkward scale lol.  It's like the opposite of star trek movies in this case; stick to the odd numbers in this series ^_^.

    To be fair it would depend on the anime. If it's something thats like drama, thoughtful, suspence, thriller etc manga I wouldn't care. If I'm watching something like skip beat- then I'm gonna be embarrassed

    To be fair I don't willingly tell anyone I know that I like manga or anime, so I guess I'm a tad ashamed of it (though most don't really get anime can be aimed at people who are late teens early 20s), but if they see me watching/reading it I'm just like "yeah, so?" silly
