Finished Linebarrels of Iron. It was an enjoyable Mecha anime. Although I feel the trend of a main character tapping into a incredible power, only to look weak in a fight unless they have an emotionally traumatic moment is getting old. It seems to be the most overused cliche in all of anime.

I rewatched Eureka 7 a few months ago and I realized I never finished it before. I regret watching those last episodes. Too many anime pull the "humanity" card. These main characters have to preserve their own moral code at all costs. Often these characters are male junior high school students in japan that have never had a girlfriend and will morally die if they ever look at pornography. The entire world usually goes into full fantasy mode and they now have to save the day for some reason because they're "special". I can understand that anime studios have a target audience of young japanese boys, but I'm really surprised theres not more mainstream anime that is targeted at the older anime audiences. Maybe there are, but I'm not noticing them. The only anime I seem to come across thats targeted for adults includes intense gore or brutal killing (looking at you Berserk and Attack on Titan). I really want another good DBZ style series or another Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop or Outlaw Star.
Dimension W us turning out to be pretty good. It has a good amount of gore. The main character is a man and the co-main character is a little girl android that has bad ass abilities. You'd think they'd realize why AoT is so popular. The main character is a kid, but there is no school in that fucked up world. They had to make a spin-off school anime about it. there are some anime are still fantastic despite the main character stereotype you listed. The Future Diary is one of those few. I could go for another Champloo, Bebop, Basilisk. As long as it doesn't go the way of The Legend of Legendary Heroes. X_x. Eureka Seven had some amazing action and music to go with it. The ending was horrible and Eureka Seven AO is crap. Don't waste your time.
