Jeff's Anime & Manga List
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
FMA:Brotherhood is my favorite anime to date.
"The main character is Edward Elric - also known as the Fullmetal Alchemist - who almost lost his little brother, Alphonse, in an alchemical accident trying to revive their deceased mother. Edward managed to attach his brother's soul to a large suit of armor. While he did manage to save his brother's life, he paid the terrible price of his limbs.To get back what they've lost, the brothers embark on a journey to find the Philosopher's Stone that is said to amplify the powers of an alchemist enormously."
I would have to say that Death Note is one of my all time favorite anime as well. The story is twisted, dark, and psychological.
"Yagami Light is a 17-year-old genius from Japan who is tired of his life, school, and the state of the world as he knows it. One day Light stumbles upon a dark notebook with "Death Note" written on the front. Light reads the first few sentences, only to find out that it states that anyone whose name is written inside will die. Discarding it as a joke, Light continues his daily activities. Light later realizes the power of the book. Light begins to rid the world of unnecessary people, but another genius, L, who works as a detective begins to catch on these occurences. Who will win this power of Gods between humans?
D.Gray Man is one of the best complete/incomplete anime I have watched. It is incomplete because the manga was stopped for unknown reasons. Besides that, the anime is filled with action, suspense and adventure that pulls you in.
"Towards the end of the 19th century, Allen Walker officially joins the organization of Exorcists that destroy the beings known as Akuma; mechanic weapons made by the Millennium Earl with the suffering souls of the dead. Allen has both a cursed eye and an anti-Akuma weapon as an arm, bearing the power of "Innocence", a gift given to him as an apostle of God. Allen, along with his fellow Exorcists must put a stop to the Millennium Earl's ultimate plot that could lead to the destruction of the world and all who live on it."
No Game, No Life
Currently there is only one season, but this anime captured me right from the start. The anime takes a different approach to anime itself, as it contains tons of vibrant colors.
"The story of No Game, No Life centers around Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister. These two gamers even consider the real world as just another "crappy game." One day, they are summoned by a boy named "God" to an alternate world. There, God has prohibited war and declared this to be a world where "everything is decided by games"—even national borders. Humanity has been driven back into one remaining city by the other races. Will Sora and Shiro, the good-for-nothing brother and sister, become the "Saviors of Humanity" on this alternate world?"
"The story takes place in Tokyo in 2039, after the outbreak of the "Apocalypse Virus" during what became known as the "Lost Christmas" of 2029. Since then, Japan has been under the control of the multinational organization called GHQ. Ouma Shu is a 17 year-old boy who mistakenly obtains a rare and great power. He can use this power, "The Right Hand of the King," to extract "voids," or tools/weapons that are the manifestations of peoples' hearts." His personality and life change forever when he meets a girl named Yuzuriha Inori, a member of the rebel group called "Undertakers," whose members seek the restoration of self-government in Japan via the ousting of GHQ.
