    "Cowboy Bebop is a classic futuristic anime for me. The depth of reality was well executed. Every episode appears to be random and unpredictable, much how real life works right? I like how almost every negative side of human persons are interacting in this anime. This is a much watch classic."

    "I know there are already plenty of animes with time travel themes but what sets Steins Gate as outstanding for me is how this anime depicts the act of time travel itself. About first 8 episodes were spent on developing the characters as well as the experiementation but dude once you reach episode 9 that was where all these things started to kick in and consequences were realized! Butterfly effect indeed! Now you shouldnt wonder how this anime scrambled my mind to bits just predicting what's gonna happen next!"

    "I like the crisis that Motoko faced about her existence in the original movie. There are lots of reverse psychology which I encountered there which I must set aside first in order to appreciate the movie. But I didn't feel that much crisis when I was watching the Stand Alone complex. Looks to me like a cyber punk action show. Although compared to the movie, the anime's futuristic atmosphere was more real. Though I might not be the target audience for this show."

    "I grew up loving this anime. It's highly futuristic with that mechanical boy and flying cars in glass tunnel tubes. What's especially lovable is the protagonist himself, Astro, who's so overpowering powerful yet peace-lover. Despite the wicked people he encounters every single day, he remains to be innocent and a good robot person. Not to mention the graphics are so awesomely fluid!!! I'm rewatching this anime!"

    "I'm a gamer and I've always imagined how it's like being in a game yourself, and SAO gave off that thrilling vibe. The notion that once you die in the game would mean your death in real life was really hooking enough for me. The art is really beautiful and the action scenes are amazing."

    "I totally enjoyed this anime. Even with so much characters, every single one of them are well-developed. Remembering one of them right now would take me back to reminiscing their emotions. Despite the highly scifi world, the characters all felt so real! Their dilemmas, their past. Suzaku's ideology really is so admirable. They said real men dont cry but the ending really made me cry a river."

    "Technology helping people to judge the probability of an invdividual committing a crime is the unique feature I've seen only in this anime. The story writing is complex, intricate and clever. This sci fi is highly a social commentary on how tech is running our lives. It's so dark and hard to sink in but that adds to this beauty."
