I'm currently watching two animes
This anime has been rated as the best anime of 2007 on many websites. Another reason was that it included Robotech like machines. The story takes place in era where Britania has conquered most of the world and now controls Japan as well. The main character Lelouch is given the power of kings which allows anyone to obey his orders. Its upto him to destroy Britania through his new acquired power and his intelligent strategies in battlefield.
This story movies very fast and you'll not get bored at any time. It is also amazing to see how Lelouch plans each and everything out prefectly though he also fails some times. He must fight bravely in order to overcome an empire which is far stronger than him.
This anime is currently showing season 2. The first season include 24-25 episodes and im expecting season 2 will be about the same length.
I personally started it after providing manigamer with links to the anime. Another reason for starting this was that it was based on sports and I really enjoyed Prince of Tennis which is based on Tennis. Therefore, I thought I gave this one a try.Slam Dunk is very well written. Its funny as hell and every character in it is handled very well. The charcter build ups are excellent in this case. I would also like to mention that this anime is based on the popular manga which goes by the same name. The Manga was a big hit during its time and has also been regarded as the best Manga of all times.
Since the anime came out during the late 90s so you might feel the need for some graphical improvements. However, all that can be looked aside since the story sucks you in. I watched the whole anime (101 episodes + 4 movies) in about 1 week. Seriously, it is that good.
The story is about a a badass guy who used to fight in schools. He isnt the favourite among the ladies as well since hes been rejected 50 times already. All that changed when he met the girl of his dreams. This girl has an interest towards basketball and encourages him to play Basketball. In order to win her heart he joins the basketball club. However, another rookie has joined the club who is stealing the spotlight and is causing problems for him. He must play better than this professional rookie in order to win the heart of the girl he loves.
