Hey all, so i just finished watching hunter x hunter 2011, episode 135. (contents in spoiler) please do not read unless you have finished up to 135. You have been warned.


If anyone is hesitant to start HxH, i plead you to start it. This series made me question who the real villains in the series are. This is one of the only shounen shows after Gintama to flush out the backgrounds of the antagonists so well!


So what are some of your most memorable scenes in anime history?

Dont forget to tag your stuff as a spoiler and name the episode and series the spoiler is from! (So people who have not seen the series or have not reached the point you're talking about are not spoiled to it)

Thought provoking scene:

The last scene from the anime or manga MONSTER

It gave me chills and it was indeed thought provoking since everybody who watched it was shocked and/or was trying to question the real villain of the series as well.

I was like *mind f'ed* it also reminded me of the book I read in HS called "Sophie's choice" in which the mother is forced by the Nazis to pick 1 of her 2 children to be sent to the gas chambers...no matter her choice, the outcome would be devastating.

So who is the real MONSTER in the anime?



Most memorable scene:

Berserk...also the last episode...in this one I can yell MIND FUCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thought provoking?

- Every episode of Kino no Tabi
- Kafka-esque-ness of the beginning of Black Lagoon peppered with existential crises throughout the whole show
- Fate/Zero, same as Black Lagoon
- Elfen Lied (anime), what is it to be 'human'?
- Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku, same as Elfen Lied
- Shin Sekai Yori, same as above 2
- Eve no Jikan
- Kokoro Connect, human relationships vs. human nature
- Kara no Kyoukai: Paradox Spiral
- Romcom SNAFU, pretty thought provoking show underneath the layers akin to Kokoro Connect
- Shigofumi, death, regrets


I'm more than likely missing some other big names. I love thought provoking/philosophical animes.

I'm unfortunately still caught up in an argument about dubbing and Aniplex to provide proper thought to this.


But, GTO always got my thinking cap on. Its a basic message about teachers being people too, the entire show a comedy shwo as well as Japanese school culture satire. It's just a damn great show, probably why it has several movies and live action in addition to the anime and manga.

Also we have Genshiken, whole hours I've devoted it pacing around my house thinking about the perfection of a single episode. Specifically the Gunpla model building episode.
That show perfectly describes otakuism to an outsider.

Shiki gave me a lot of moments to reflect on:

Shin Sekai Yori, too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onxCXakXHOc ~~~ Rolo's death Code Geass

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Vw7cCrlSq0 ~~ Lelouch's death (sorry this one is subbed)

i really like the dubbed cast in the Code Geass anime


EDIT
======



ALSO THE FINAL 3 EPISODES OF

Rosario + Vampire season II

JUST DAMN THE LOVE TRIANGLE GOT WEIRD AT THE END WHEN EVERY ONE DECIDED TO COMMIT SUICIDE


it is really hard to type up the last few episodes here without summarizes the entire series in about 20 horribly written paragrpahs that make sense and don't


my best answer is youtube the Final 2 episodes





EDIT
=====

speaking honestly after reading the manga and Buying the Anime DVD set

OMFG i can't watch the anime right now until my mind settles down from the

2nd saddest ending in anime and manga history i ever read


if i even so much look at Moka or Tsukene pictures form the manga or anime

i will burst into tears lol
