Favorite Anime in genre
« on: August 14, 2006, 06:39:03 am »
While I'm sure there have been plenty 'Your top ten anime' threads, I've decided to make this thread to place things under genre. I consider this as a recommendation where anyone who likes a certain genre can find good anime about it. Okay, so:

Sci-fi: Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Drama: AIR. Saddest anime ever.

Fantasy: X-TV.

Comedy: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Mahou Shouju: (For the three people who like this genre) Card Captor Sakura\ Cardcaptors.

Horror: Hellsing.

Adventure: Tsubasa Chronicle.

Other: Rozen Maiden.

So, what's your favorties?

Whats Mahou Shouju O.o

Maho shojo = magical girl. Something where a girl is born with or recieves some form of magical power to use (which she is usually fated to recieve anyways, or the circumstances of/before her birth make it inevitable) - in some cases to fight some enemy with (ala Sailor Moon, although actually that is a very slight variant of the maho shojo genre though I forget what it's exactly called), or in other cases to use in absolutely ordinary situations to solve little problems that pop up in her life, usually to do with romance or having her powers found out (ala Miracle Girls).  Most of the first magical girl shows had to do with young witches... so I guess you could say Sabrina the Teenage Witch could almost belong in that category...

Okay, I am rambling way too much about that. o.O;;
