Highschool Anime

Postby Zechiel » Wed Dec 13, 2006 6:04 am

While discussing highschool anime on LS yesterday I mentioned some highschool anime's. I dont know that many because I usually dont like them that much. But this one is quite good:
    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

(Thanks to Taiyoh for showing me this fun anime!)

This show is quite good. Highschool anime meets Evangelion.
It consists of half a JP season (1 season is 26 episodes). The episodes werent aired chronologically and they shouldnt be viewed chronologically. (Think "Memento")
I've included a part of the chronological episode 1 though. (Aired as episode 2) I did that so you could get a feel for what the show is about...

Official Opening:

[a.f.k.] The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya episode 1 (part 1 of 3)

The manga/Anime i've always loved till this day is HunterXHunter

http://groups.msn.com/HxHrevamp/vol1.msnw

It's a story of a boy travelling the world in search of his father.

The reason i love it is because of the tactics behind fights and the explanations given to certain powers.

::cough:: seeing as this thread is titled "school anime" or whatever, i'll only talk about school anime lol.

Azumanga Daioh:
OMFG check it out it's so good. only 1 season i think. really worth the watch. Supremely excellent opening theme.

School Rumble:
Another fantastic school anime. Has 2 seasons, second one is called School Rumble Second Semester. Hilariously awesome. First Season has a good opening theme, second one not so much.

Both are good to watch if you have the time. School Rumble is more about relationships (not in a Love Hina kind of way) and Azumanga Daioh is more of a random Excel Saga type where you're just like "wtf?" Check them out!

School rumble was great, waiting for a third season now.

Only high school-ish anime I'm watching this season is Sumomomo-Momomo. I think it more falls into a romantic slapstick comedy, and I still can't tell if its so bad if its good or just plain good.

I had a lot of fun when I saw Love Hina (All 25 eps, and the OVA´s), but my favorite high school anime is my 2nd all time favorite: Karekano, A.K.A. "His and Hers circumstances" on US. Unfortunally the show ended with a very confusing episode due to creative departures on the production staff, but overall follows close the manga, which, btw, I highly recommend.

Sakura Diaries has/always-will-be my favorite of any of the Melrose-Placey high school drama Anime. Pretty cute storyline.
"Today is the first day, a day of change, with new lessons to be learned.
Lesson one: Humility.
All you had, you have not.
All you were, you are not.
Cast aside your fears, child, and stride tall along the path you've chosen."
