i'm surprised no one mentioned kenechi: the mightiest disciple (i think that's the correct spelling)
Seeker for game.
I found an anime recently called mirai nikki (future diary) it's pretty good.

I've been enthralled with Mirai Nikki since about 2 months ago.
Very engaging. Very brutal. Definitely not something that I would have expected.
It definitely gets props for originality and cleverness.
I've been watching Mahou Shojo Madoka Magica (or Puella Magi Madoka Magica) on Crunchyroll. I don't know if I can recommend it highly enough.
Watch the first 3 episodes. That should hook you. Highly HIGHLY recommended.
Animation is top-notch, music is excellent, pacing is great, writing is superb.
Must recommend the entire season of DBZ for anyone who hasn't seen it already.
I recently started watching it after only following bits and pieces when I was younger and now that I'm older, watching every episode in the series and understanding the story line... I have to admit. It's possibly one of the best shows ever.
Do you mean DBZ or DB Kai?
I watched Kai and thought it was excellent. I don't think I would be able to sit through 100% more filler for DBZ, however.
Kai is essentially Z in half the time. Z has no "filler" in the traditional anime sense. There's just a lot of wasted time in each episode.
Also I'd recommend Shiki to anyone interested, though disclaimer, it's not for the squeamish, especially later in the series.
Shiki is pretty good. A nice take on the horror genre. It actually is "realistic" about how something like that would happen.
I definitely concur that it can get very intense for the more squeamish.
I haven't seen episode 26 yet. Need to wait a week for it to release on Hulu/Funimation.
I'm most stoked about the final 2 episodes of Madoka Magica. It has already jumped into my favorite anime list, and may reach the upper levels of the list if those 2 episodes pan out the way the rest of the series has.
Full Metal Alchemist, Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Girls Bravo (never seen it but my friend said it is good), Kekaishi, Naruto, Bleach.
Teddiursa = My ultimate cutie Pokemon! SHUDDUP JIGGLYFANS!
Kekkaishi is an awful anime that cuts off about 1/3 of the way through the story. The manga actually, y'know, completes the story, and it's actually a halfway decent one.
I loved Yu-Yu-Hakusho, G Gundam, and Zoids all because of their tournament style of fights. Can anyone recommend me an anime sort of like the ones above? ( I put those shows in that order because thats the order of most liked to least) I would prefer if it was more super powery than robots though :D
There's No Shaymin Losing The Game
Naruto early (up through about episode 60) on has a pretty good tournament arc. However if you've seen YuYu Hakusho, that's pretty much the top rung of tournament shonen.
Dragon Ball Kai has a good tournament arc with the Cell Saga.
Ya, I have seen all of the Dragon Ball Z, and the very first tournament in dragonball. I own all of dragonball but stopped watching at the ice castle part. Hope to finish some time :P
There's No Shaymin Losing The Game
didn't anyone here watch the best Anime EVER, Code Geass????
other really good animes I have watched are Baccano, Death note,Angel Beats, Fate Zero, Fate Stay Night,Brotherhood,FMA original and a few others I can't reclall atm
Fates are tournaments, but most likely not what you are looking for
Code Geass was one of the first anime I found on my own and I loved it. I still do.
But there are better anime. Which I never really thought I'd say.
CG is still one of my favorites, but I think its near the bottom of my favorites now.
My girlfriend just got me to start watching Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, and I'm hooked right now. Other ones that I have found to be enjoyable are Claymore and Angel Beats which are both on Netflix.
2012-2013 Season Progress:
1st Mountain Grove BR, 2nd Springfield BR, 2nd Bentonville BR, Top 32 Houston Regionals, 2nd Bentonville CC
Championship Points: 99
Madoka is so excellent. I have gotten quite a few friends into watching it. I can't wait for the finale on Wednesday!
I did like Claymore, it was decent. Unfortunately it didn't measure up to the manga. The manga is much superior in every way. Though I've never seen Angel Beats.
