    Hey guys, any good anime that you have been watching lately (aside from Gundam Build Fighters)? I have recently tried a few different shows and am glad to see there are great shows to be discovered. I apologize in advance if this post is long, lol!

    I started off by watching Sword Art Online just before I started building Gunpla and found it to be quite a good video game style anime. Great story and characters and I highly recommend it.

    After joining this site and seeing @philliptan build his MG Barnaby Brooks Jr I decided to actually check the Tiger & Bunny anime out. I was always misled by the name but it turned out to be an awesome superhero show with a great story filled out with great action and comedy. Not your typical superheroes, but a great alternative take on the superhero genre. @philliptan Watching this totally makes me want to get the Wild Tiger MG first. =P

    Just a few weeks ago I decided to watch Valvrave season 1. Wow! It is an awesome dark mecha show. It kind of reminds me of Code Geass with how different it was from many other mecha anime (at least for me). The one nitpick I have about the show is the mecha are pretty ugly to me except the Valvrave I and IV, maybe the rest will grow on me later. I will totally be keeping a watch on this anime while season 2 progresses.

    Finally the most recent anime I watched was Majestic Prince. Just like Tiger & Bunny the name is so misleading but I am glad I tried it. It sucked me right in as Valvrave had. The show is quite serious but has a fair bit of comedy, especially early on, which I found quite nice. The mecha designs are all pretty cool for all sides involved in the show. I see there are no kits yet for this show, but since it just recently ended, I really hope we will see some soon.

    That’s it guys, but boy do I feel I dragged on, lol! Please share any anime you have recently seen and if you have any questions about any I recommended let me know and I will do my best to answer. Thanks for reading! 🙂

    • im hoping for some majestic prince kits too just fin watching it 2 weeks ago, and im hoping for a season 2!!

    • Hello Bud! @superxvegito I haven’t got any new animes to recommend to you for now. I haven’t watched any animes lately. Before I was watching the Tiger N Buddy but I haven’t finished it yet. Get the Wild Tiger, Bud. It’s awesome!

      What I have finished so far is the Gundam 00 Series, Season 1, Season 2 and the OVA Awakening of the Trail Blazer. And then I also watched the Gundam Wing all over again. XD I dont know any new animes that has mecha on it besides Gundam and Tiger N Bunny. But if your up to solving mysteries, crimes, etc. I would recommend watching the Death Note. It’s an old anime though but the story is really fascinating.

      Enjoy your anime hunting Bud! I hope you find a good one. I’ll drop a post if in case I found any. 😀

    • Hey bro… thanks for the post! The longer the better haha. Sorry I’ve been pretty busy with that thing called Real Life. Lol… only started a Gunpla build last night! Thats like 3 weeks without building. I was a little bit burned out from
      all that building weeks ago.

      Anyway, interesting you should mention anime cos I was actually watching Girls und Panzer. Pretty cool with babes and tanks. Definitely a guy’s anime lol. I could recommend other animes but it depends on your taste. I watched a cutesy one called Nichijou 日常 which means Ordinary Life. I believe it’s meant for kids but the humour is funny in a weird sorta way. Just short snippets abt things that happen everyday but in an interesting way.

      Other animes worth checking out for the cute girls (some are a few yrs old….
      – Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko (The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat)
      – Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wakeganai (My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute)
      – Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (I Don’t Have Many Friends)
      – Toradora (Tiger and Dragon)

      ok so these are not mecha animes so I’m not sure if you would like them but the girls are cute lol.

      • Thanks for the suggestions @phillitan, understand that real life thing, lol! All this NFL and hockey taking up my free time!

        I do enjoy more than just mecha anime but for some reason I am in a kick on those at the moment. I have seen Oreimo and thoroughly enjoyed that one. The rest are new to me so I will totally check them out.

        Btw, what kit you thinking of building? I put away my HG Freedom until I can find the paint I want. I’m thinking of doing the HG Wing Gundam I just picked up.

    • @superxvegito I’ve started building my MG Zaku II Shin Matsunaga Custom 2 days bk. Fun build. Lotsa details to throw in my gundamarkering. Will post soon!

    • Oh and one more nice anime in the style of Fate stay/night is High School DxD. Its an anime abt fighting with sorcery and magic but with boobs. Definitely NSFW LOL. Enjoy!

      • fate stay/night is “OK” while Fate/Zero is a “BADASS” anime, but high school DxD is a bit on the down side of my list. if you want some booby action then… go for it.

        Danshi koukouse no nichijou
        Shingeki no Kyojin
        Blood Lad
        Hataraku Maou-sama
        Suisei no Gargantia
        Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!
        Macross Frontier and too many to mention bro

    • Not mecha, Kuroko no Bask. Its basket ball. I really enjoy this show because it makes you wish that back in the day school you’d could pull off them moves they have hahaha.

      Another show is worth picking up is:
      Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea, known in Japan as Nagi no Asukara
      Really diggin’ this show.

      Kill La Kill, the art is really cool and its got some comedy value. =D
