Eureka 7 is brilliant, I especially liked the music. Last Exile didn’t really grab me, it seemed a bit samey to me despite the cool steam punk theme and the riflemen shooting from the ships. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is brilliant though its a pity an anime magazine I was reading give all the best plot twists away they really should put down a spoiler alert or something. Tengen Toppa would have to be the best mech anime apart from Code Geass in recent times. Recently finished Tales of Agriculture which has to be one of the best comedy animes in ages though it has only 12 episodes but every episode is pure gold. It charts the college hijinks of Tadayasu Sawaki who has the strange ability to see and communicate with bacteria and other micro-organisms, he is joined by a hot goth lab researcher, a professor with a messed up love of fermented food and two layabout science students who out do Del Boy and Rodney Trotter (Only Fools and Horses) when it comes to get rich quick schemes, look out for the twists at the end which the aforementioned Anime magazine also spoiled curse you _____ (would rather not get sued), curse you. Also following the slice of life them I would really recommend Genshiken or The Society for the Study of Contemporary Visual Culture which is chock full of otakus who spend their time watching bad anime, reading erotic manga, cosplaying, playing computer games and building Gundam models, honestly it kinda like a Japanese version of WARPS, it really takes the piss out of otaku culture which is always a good thing, the day I start acting like any of the guys in Genshiken please shoot me, oh crap it has already happened.
