“As much as I’m a sucker for the massive sagas (Gintama / One Piece / Naruto), I feel like the series that can have me equally engaged in only 24 episodes have really mastered the art.”
Started Watching: Around 2007-ish
First Watched: Full Metal Alchemist (2003/2004 version)
All time Favourite: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
Honourable Mention: Spice and Wolf
“High budget and amazing animation will only get you so far, you also need either compelling characters, or a compelling story, to back it up. Without one of them, the show is empty, hollow, forgettable”
