Yea i kinda feel the same, im at the point i rather rewatch Rurouni Kenshin than to try out a new anime..

But as you mentioned there are still a few anime series out there that are good and fit your personal taste. and with so many anime coming out you're most likely to find some series that you'll love you just gotta know where to look.

i think in a way it's like the music industry, among all the bands out there that are likely to suck there is also good ones but they are hard to find if you don't know where to look for them.

I tend to look for manga more than anime these days. I guess since it's a lot cheaper to make they generally take more risks.

I think ive been preaching to the choir here, i thought you didn't know much about anime but you even read manga which i don't do myself.

i like colour, it bothers me Manga for the most part is Black & white that turns me off for some reason, that's why i prefer comics over manga.

A lot of anime dorks like to act like comics are less mature than anime, but I scoff at them. Spandex or not, Batman and Spiderman are infinitely more mature than 99% of anime. And I can think of very little that can compete with Watchmen or Sandman.

But the black and white thing grows on you after a while and you stop noticing it.

I have a questiom for any anime buffs here, I wanted to check out FMA Brotherhood but I wasnt sure if its worth watching having already seen the original series. Is it alot different or just subtle differences? Better or worse?

Better, if not equally as good, i haven't finished Brotherhood yet i just saw a couple to see if it was good, and it was.

Fairy tale is also good if you haven't seen it.

Fairy Tail is another popular shounen series running right now. That being said, it doesn't hold a candle to FMA Brotherhood, much less something like Hunter X Hunter.

Well it certainly starts more entertaining then Hunter X Hunter, and i wouldn't call FMAB alot better than FT, they're just different.

The thing i liked about Fairy Tail (You're right its 'tail') its the pacing of that show. from the first eps they go right away into the action.
