Trying to keep a long post short:
Need some short anime series for a marathon, 30 episodes or less, that has some pretty good action but isn't totally retarded. I'm not picky, but my friends would hate something like Azumanga Daioh and prefer something like Naruto (which I hate) or Bleach (which I got tired of).
Already being considered:
Elfen Lied is already ruled out so it doesn't need to be suggested, but it's also an anime we like.
All of them, except Hellsing OVA instead of series.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes
You guys are just full of helpfulness.
What makes one better than the other?
your friends are gay
Yeah, I know.
Watch JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OVA. (13 eps.)
Welcome to N.H.K is a great animu
Godannar, if you like tits and robots.
Noein is 24 episodes. Very nice action, great art-style, and LOLSCIENCE to keep you entertained.
Personally, I love the style. You'll see what I mean when/if you watch the first episode.
OP IS UNDERAGE B&
Gundam Seed Destiny
Coyote Ragtime Show
D. Gray Man
>>Godannar, if you like tits and robots.
Wait there are people who DON'T?!?
FUCK YOU. WATCH LEGEND OF GALACTIC HEROES, NEWFAG.
I thought the art style was a bit dull, but i guess it's nice to watch.
I don't like mecha, what now?
You don't like tits?
There are less than 5 episodes with true action (i.e., something that last more than 30 seconds).
Oh, fuck yeah. I was actually trying to think of that earlier.
As a marathon? I'm not fucking suicidal.
Hellsing is shit, haven't seen GL, the rest is nice. Might also consider Samurai Champloo.
Since your friends are retarded (obviously), don't make them watch it. They would RAGE.
Why would they rage at a 6 episodes of lol so random XD?
They've already seen it, and it'll only take up three hours to watch.
I think they just like the sexual innuendo and robots.
only cowboy bebop
the rest re crap for starters
also sage for GL pic
Watch 28 episodes a day.
'hey Yuu, what are you doing? Ai loves Yuu.'
Then there will be no time for the other ones.
I'm seconding Noein. Awesome series.
>Elfen Lied is already ruled out so it doesn't need to be suggested, but it's also an anime we like.
>an anime we like
take Tsubasa Chronicle off the list, he might try to watch the fucking awesome OVAs
I might seriously consider your criticism of the anime on my list if you weren't implying that the only anime on Earth worth watching is Cowboy Bebop. If you had suggested a few alternative series I might have taken you seriously.
They like tits. I like understanding the allusions in Nana's Everday Life. Also cuteness.
but seriously, watch cowboy bebop.
Trigun's pretty weak, though I guess the main draw is to watch Vash be ridiculous. GL's a good super robot homage, but do you like super robot anime? FLCL is also a watch now show, but only 6 episodes, you can finish it in like an hour and a half, so watch something else too.
*sigh* Third fucking time today...
>but do you like super robot anime?
I have no idea.
FUCK YES! RYO-TIMO SKETCH FIGHT!
Just make them watch Akagi. Geez.
FUCK YEAH SKETCH FIGHT!
get new friends
Revised list of anime being considered:
Watch everything in that exact order.
A couple of my friends and I pulled an Outlaw Star all-niter a few months ago. I don't remember how many eps it was, but it was pretty fun.
If you watch Excel Saga, you can add Puni Puni Poemi to the list (sort of ep 27 and ep 28 of Excel Saga). It's only 1 hours length.
At first it looks like a mesh of Trigun, Big O and Cowboy Bebop. By episode 5, the show sets itself apart with the hero more opting to go the way of "The man with no name". The secondary characters who could have easily been cardboard cut-outs are rather fleshed out leading up to some fantastic resolutions at the end.
GunXSword is a parody.
By the way, it's from the director of PlanetES.
