    My favorite anime is Dragon Ball Z

    but I strongly disliked G.T. which in my mind just stands for Goku Time

    Does anybody like Sailor Moon Crystal?

    I think the original anime is much better. Cyristal looks like a cartoon. Usagi is skinny in Crystal but she is a little fat actually. And Mamo looks so weird. I just hated it. The opening is terrible too!

    Has anyone else seen Tokyo Ghoul?

    I'm on episode 4 and I'm really liking it so far. I recommend it to anyone as long as they are okay with lots of gore and people being ripped apart and eaten.
