    I said don't. I meant don't. You didn't understand what I was asking him to do.

    I think I did.  That pop anime is as repetitive and exploitive  as any other form of media is clear and I'll give you that.  Just would not wish the BNaruto fillers on my worst enemies is all.

    Have any of you watched Neon Genesis Evangelion?
    I don't think so. I've seen a couple or maybe one or two other Animes where the characters fight inside machines... but i don't recall this one. Is it good?

    My god, how can i forget Samurai Champloo... that series was the shizzel. I'm kinda like you with Death Note, but i watched it a second time and it's pretty cool. I was mad at some deaths, i won't spoil anything, but overall it was interesting.

    Alternatively, if you just want an anime that people who normally hate anime love, try Attack on Titan. It's mainstream enough.
    That's a really good anime. There are a couple other apocalyptic animes that are really good too. I forget their names. It depends on the person you are recommending too. There is literally a genre for everyone. I can't really recommend any bc i like the fantasy action genres so i would recommend something on the lines of Bleach or Blood+ ... I remember watching some others, one in particular was a ghost hunter one where the guy was super intelligent, i think Rational would like... but i forget the name. 

    In regards to comparing it to the west... really there is no comparison. It outright beats western animated series in my opinion just off the fact that no western animation is so in depth with genres and intricate plot lines that anime has... so blows them out of the water there. The only thing you can compare to is movies. But movies are their own thing and anime is its own thing. It's apples and oranges. The cool thing with anime is that if you like something like Harry Potter, or Zombie movies... there is likely more than a dozen or two animes that have such plots. Which i think is awesome. In the west you only have Harry Potter... in anime world you have like 20 or probable more Harry Potter type animes. That's what drew me in at least. I think it's brilliant what Anime has achieved.

    O-O... I hope your dog dies.

    It's pop.  I'm curious as to why large populations collect and decide somethings a fun thing to like.  Naruto is that when it comes to anime.  It's easy to hate on popular things, particularly when you get deeper into a genre, but so much easier to love them along with the masses.

    My favourite. Don't know if other people would like it.

    I don't have a dog so you lose.

    Yeah it is easy to follow the crowd then it is to find your own things you like. My problem with Naruto is Naruto. He is so unlikable. He is given so much power, very little to work for and somehow he is the greatest ninja alive. The show was never about hard-work it was about people who are gifted (inherited power from their family) which train as well. Which is why Rock Lee is not the main character or even relevant in Shippuden (watched most of it when they were kids but watch shippuden videos on YouTube). There is a video which is really good at addressing the problems of Naruto. If you don't want what you like to be tested don't watch it but it can reinforce your liking of Naruto if he is wrong or might just feel how I feel. It is 42 minutes long. Don't complain to me if it too long complain to him in the comment section.

    It was really fun to watch. I like Cowboy more but Samurai can definitely compete with Cowboy.

    The interest waves thin for me when both characters do things unimaginable and the series appears as it self realistic. If we remove the death note then that would be more realistic than a fantastical version of reality. Maybe I had the wrong mindset but it was so condescending when they were trying to give exposition or trying to explain something. Example would be when the main characters tells us how he keeps the Death Note safe. There are others but Titanium might get annoyed if I point out another example.
