I think Chalmey should watch something that is the very thesis on the bad of anime, but not something too obvious or a hentai series.

Any ideas?

I've already seen bits of that anyways.  Nothing that special.

I was just kidding, anyway. I'm not really sure what to recommend.

I would say Naruto, but I figured you would want to start with something smaller.

Make him watch School Days. Its only 12 episodes long but its bad enough to make him despise anime forever.

Nah. Like Avaitor said, we need to find a less obvious choice.

Hmm, and what should I review?

Want me to go deep into the Hanna-Barbera or Filmation vaults and find something awful, or is there anything in particular you want to see me take on?

What would constitute as not so obvious, then? Green Green?

I'd consider Green Green obvious ecchi with annoying pervy sidekicks. Just watch the opening credits, and it's obvious what minimum number of brain cells are required to figure out the series.

Something you might like: Soul Eater
Something that's really popular that I have no clue what it's about: Gintama
Something that's current that seems to attract otaku junkies: Ore Imouto
Something that's current that seems wrong but somehow adults might like it: Yosuga no Sora


Personally, I'd like a briefing on all those Ghost/dead people related stories: Ghost Hunt, Ghost Stories, Corpse Princess, High School of the Dead. Are any of these worth watching? Are they as thrilling as Higurashi, episodic as Hell Girl, or more like Red Garden?

Okay, so Desen is watching Ren & Stimpy, Chalmers is watching School Days, and I think Insommy is watching Fish Hooks.

What are EK, Foggle, and myself going to watch?

Cool. Would love to see Fish Hooks or Phineas and Ferb reviewed. They seem to promote the heck out of it along with whatever Suite Life and Jonas stuff they have going on.
