Good anime thread. Give your favorite 5, then some recommendations besides them.
1. Elfen Lied
2. Kill La Kill
3. Gurren Lagann
4. Samurai Champloo
5. Hellsing Ultimate
>I also liked Trigun, but it has been a long time since I watched it.
>People talk shit about Naruto, but it was pretty solid at one point.
>Ghost in the Shell was really good.
>Sword of the stranger was really good too.
> Attack on Titan's manga is not bad.
>Cowboy Bebop is great, but the episodic format lost my attention about ten episodes in.
good thing we're not on /a/ or you would get absolutely fucked on for having elfen lied on that list.
2. Eureka seven
4. Tokyo Ghoul
I also recommend chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai, the hentai prince and the stony cat, pet girl of sakurasou, and samurai champloo.
everything but Bleach, I like. Bleach lost be after about 70 episodes. Don't get me wrong, I really like the concept of it, but it feels like they try too hard.
2 Samurai Champloo
3 Kill La Kill
4 Cowboy Bebop
5 Gurren Lagaan
Honorable Mention Death Note
Been looking for new things to watch. I don't watch too much anime just a bit here and there
Lain was a masterpiece
Its a really good watch. Longer than what I normally like but it hooked me hard. Lots of intense moments. If you are watching on Netflix just know they're missing like the last 10 episodes or so for some random ass reason.
Agreed. If it ended there it would have been wayyyyy better. I would also rate Gurren Lagaan higher if episode 8 was closer towards the end. 2sad4me
Nah, I'm on http://www.soul-anime.net/watch2/fullmetal-alchemist-brotherhood-episode-9/
I have only seen the movie of it, and I really liked it. I never got into Yu Yu Hakusho
Nobody mentioms Akira? Dafuq /b/.
orIginla ninja scroll not the shitty series
ouron host club was surprisingly good.
Naruto is just a shitty version of dbz with ninjas so fuck that.
I liked Naruto up until they just randomly stopped the Chunin Exams tourney because of random fighting shit. Story never really picked up enough for me to get attatched after that.
SA: O would have been good if they left it at S1, and just tied off the loose ends.
best fucking anime opening ever https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVmXPv-gwgo (can't find a recording of the original aside from the cut anime opening)
watch the anime, then find where the manga picks up. The anime only tells half of the story. You might just want to read the manga from the start, but Lilium is fucking beautiful, and the anime uses it very appropriately
2. Neon Genesis Evangelion
3. Cowboy Bebop
4. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagaan
5. Puella Magi Madoka Magika
There are others that could be on the list but are more SOL, without any real plot
Animu I haven't watched, but have heard good things about:
Ghost in the shell
What part of Attack on Titan did you enjoy? Because I honestly tried to get into it and it had some good parts but over all it just felt very boring and underwhelming to me and I can't see what everyone likes about it.
Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood
Mahouka koukou no rettousei
Recommend all of the above, if you haven't seen one of them.Kaze no stigma is an honorable mention too.
I'm too stupid for reading. If it doesn't have moving pictures and sound I lost interest. I tried reading Pokemon Adventures and while it was super cool and interesting as all hell and me being a huge Pokemon fan, I couldn't force myself to read anymore.
The first few episodes were much better then the later ones. I liked the sense of fear the people within the walls showed when giants with creepy ass faces come rolling in. The plot gets somewhat strange about 6 episodes in. Enjoyable but less so than the first few.
Dead Leaves is another personal favorite. It's best watched extremely high on weed though. Like, more than you normally would smoke. It gets weird just as you are becoming sober enough to understand it.
I watched guin saga high as fuck a couple years ago. It was awesome but I was probably just blazed.
/a/ users are a few hundred tiers above elitist.
#1. Mobile suit Gundam 00
#2. Attack on Titan
#3. Samurai 7
and I can't think of any others...I don't watch alot of anime. I tried watching Gurren lagann but couldn't get into it...just started Steins gate...
Also what about Gurren Lagann didn't you like? I feel like Kill La Kill is Gurren Lagann done right. Also fuck Lagann, I can never remember if its 2 a's or 2 n's. fuck spelling.
>Gundam 08th MS Team
>Tales of Symphonia: The Animation
You can say what you want about that last one, but the fight scenes are the tits, also nostalgia. Hard to really recommend anything else, Log Horizon was alright, but forgettable. Honest to god you may as well read the Berserk manga, because that shit isn't ever going to be adapted completely, let alone finished.
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. Also directed by the director of Kill La Kill.
MODS ARE HERE POST BEST GIRL
2. Nagi no Asukara
3. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
4. Sword Art Online (I'm putting on my bulletproof vest right now)
Toradora! to me is the best love story ever told in anime, while Nagi no Asukara is the greatest romance story ever told in anime. Would recommend NnA to everyone who enjoys romance.
Currently following Shingeki no Bahamut Genesis. Utterly brilliant so far, and Amira is a total qt3.14. Makes for a good action show.
Slice of Life recommendation has to be Inou Battle, though I realise the fantasy parts may disqualify it from being SoL. Trigger is pretty legit, is all I'm saying.
Sci-fi recommendation is definitely Steins;Gate. I cant believe I only got into that show this year. Should have caught on so much earlier.
Love Live is a show which, although I enjoy the songs, I think the show is pretty meh. I wouldn't recommend it.
I have vague memories of the dude fighting some giant boss at the end and getting his shit kicked in for a while. And I think he had to run from a fire guy or something. Fuck I might as well rewatch it.
Champloo seemed to have an end goal: Find that flowery motherfucker. Bebop was just them trying to keep their heads above the financial water while spike wrecks shit. Similar feel, but Champloo also had a certain style to it as well that Bebop seemed to lack.
1. Samurai Champloo
2. Kill la Kill
3. Zankyou no Terror
4. Fate series (new UBW so good)
5. Cowboy Bebop
> I really enjoyed Kids on the Slope and the music was fantastic
> Free! is way better than you'd expect from a complete fanservice anime, try it with an open mind
> Trinity Blood is pretty cool
Well I only watched the first 5 episodes before I sorta just lost interest. It was a bit too quirky for me, the older guy is just too much of a spaz, I didn't really understand the whole thing about the surface dwelling monsters. I Prefer more serious story lines etc etc. Having said that, I should have put Dragon ball on that list, I loved Dragon ball.
elfen lied has nothing but violence and an overdramatic ending to press some lemons in your eyes and thats about it. Neither or less i enjoyed it but i would never consider to put it on any "top" list.
2. Kill la Kill
4. Mirai nikki
5. Sakura-sō no Pet na Kanojo
>Champloo also had a certain style to it as well that Bebop seemed to lack
Champloo is essentially "based" on fast-paced hip-hop and Bebop is based on jazz. The fusion of music in those two series doesn't end with the tracks just playing over fight scenes, it's how they are laid out individually.
That being said, are you trying to subtly tell me you didn't enjoy the Baseball episode because there was no talk of vague, sunflower plot device?
they abuse a lot of emotional topics.
bullying in school
being poor / homeless
death of a friend/relative
freedom vs imprisonment
If you can relate to the emotional stuff you will probably like it, if you can see through that stuff it can be boring.
Funny, the violence is not what drew me in. I really empathized with Lucy. I did not have many friends as a child, and life just kept kicking her in the face. The warehouse scene is the one that really got to me though.
You literally stopped right when it was about to get a bit more serious. The show is extremely goofy for the first 8 episodes then it tones back a bit. If you have nothing else to watch I would recommend finishing it.
Dude, Guin Saga was surprisingly legit. I started it one day when I was bored because I wanted to know why the fuck he had a leopard head. Turned out to be pretty interesting. The latter half of the series was very politically driven in an almost Game of Thrones-like manner that made it pretty awesome. Not one of the best things ever but worth a watch if you like anime and politically focused plot lines.
Oddly enough, the baseball episode was my favorite. The Sousa piece as the Americans pulled into the harbor was perfect. I love me some jazz. I play trumpet, and The Seatbelts have their own station in my Pandora. I am sure that I will finish Bebop some day, but it lost me halfway through. It isn't that I didn't enjoy it, but it didn't grab me the same way. Maybe it is because I watched the dub.
1. Shinsekai Yori - Really lore-rich fantasy from the post-apocalyptic earth
2. Evangelion - pretty self explanatory must-watch
3. Koi Kaze - a psychological story about brother-sister love (no hentai, probably the most deep anime on this list)
4. Fullmetal alchemist
5. School days (a crappy harem/ecchi anime, but I like the character development)
Well the Nature of champloo is a lot more episodic then Bebop you have the first episode in which fuu hires the guys and then the last 2 or 3 which actually focus around the samurai who smells like sunflowers. everything else is just episodic they just say sometimes at the end of an episode that fuu is looking for the sunflower dude just to remind you that they have a goal but honestly thats not better then ash saying he wants to be pokemon master one day.
Bebop had 3 plot-episode blocks inbetween the "episodic" ones which where each 2-4 episodes long. They didnt brag about the goal because there was none the goal happened before the characters just wanted to clean up their past. And the episodic episodes did a great job on presenting the characters and their way of acting while the plot episodes (together with one or two flashback episodes) showed their motivation. Bebop is actually less episodic, still episodic, but less. Samurai champloo just does a cheap trick to disguise it.
The "style" you were talking about is the musical theme both shows hold which just implies you prefer Hip-Hop, Rap, and Break over Jazz, Rock and Blues.
Dead man wonderland, is pretty good as is psycho pass Tokyo ghoul is good(better manga)
4. Attack on Titan
Newer series Im getting into:
-No Game No Life (quality)
-Sword Art Online (both seasons start 10/10, both end 5/10)
Anyone have an opinion?
If you're looking for something different, Knights of Sidonia is pretty much the Prometheus of anime.
Again, it isn't that I didn't like Bebop. My musical preferences greatly depend on my mood. I have listened to Eric Whitacre one hour, Deftones the next, and Louis Armstrong a few hours later. The next day, Skrillex might be on my mind. Maybe I just need to be in the mood for Cowboy Bebop. I also binged the fuck out of it, so spacing it out might help too
I've been doing this thing with Netflix lately. I give every anime on there three episodes to impress me, no matter how shitty they look.
Thats how i got into noragami, sao, madoka, etc.
Netflix... not as shitty as one might think
darker than black
serial experiments lain
the melancholy of haruhi
towards the terra
darker than black
>god tier comedys
Arakawa under the bridge
Daily Lives of High School Boys "AKA" nichibros
Can we get some mutha fuckn HIGURASHI love up in this biach?
Other's might say your paying for something that you can get for free.
Other other's might say the free version is vastly superior.
Other other other's might say just read one of these threads or look at anime listing sights for high recommends.
Other other other's might say that...but not me anon....never me.
more good tier comedys please!
It´s awesome it was the predecesor to madoka Magica only with a Mecha. Actually there is a reference sceene in Madoka when kyubei explains the rules to Madoka there are Flashes of a Room with nothing but empty chairs in it which is a direct refence you get when you know Bokurano.
I can just say if you liked Madoka Magika you will freaking love Bokurano, but if you are sensitive you will cry your fucking eyes out.
1. full metal
4. one piece
i reccomend naruto and naruto shippuuden because you have to give respect where its due
dont get me wrong, i love these threads. my anime list grows so godamn long every time
1. free netflix, friends with benefits man.
2. i have a big tv and enjoy watching my shit on there instead of my laptop screen... maybe i should just nut up and get an adapter cable...
If only there was a solution, sadly there is none, the Internet has not illegal content and if there was there is no way to access it anonymously.
And I for one think this is a good thing.
Its pretty philosophical but worth the watch if you can pay attention to the dialogue. It´s a 7 part movie series. But it can get very confusing when you just dont pay attention for a second.
that was linked to that
Anime I've seen (and enjoyed):
Rurouni Kenshin (Trust & Betrayal, Reflection)
Kill La Kill
Attack on Titan
On my "to watch" list:
Ghost in the Shell
Akame ga Kill
Hunter X Hunter
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Most of the stuff in this thread
I just kinda jumped into the anime thing. Definitely have a lot of catching up to do. I remember watching Cowboy Bebop on Adult Swim a long time ago - must have been 12-13 when it was on.
1. Knights of Sidonia
3. SAO- yes the ending was shitty, but the feels it stirred in me after having a couple long distance relationships were intense
4. Rosario Vampire- good for very different reasons, mainly cause the protagonist was an underpowered wimp, surrounded by god-tier powerhouses that wanted his dick
5. An Irregular at Magic High School- I absolutely love this anime, also that's it's fairly new, and the only reason I don't place it higher is cause I just finished watching it, and don't want to be skewed. pic related
Reccomendations: Definitely check out An Irregular at Magic High School, and Knights of Sidonia. Both attempt to follow the laws of physics fairly rigidly within their universes, which is pretty rare.
Nichijou is all else i would recommend. Even that is kinda touch and go with some of its jokes.
Though it has some of the most beautiful animation ive seen.
He-man is interesting.
It's about a white supremacist who's into bondage and most episode's attacks a facialy disfigured black man with his weapon that massively increases in size when he gets aroused.
HeMan does this for great justice and sexy fun times.
It depends. If you want action, go for the movies first. If you want political intrigue and more world building, go with Stand Alone Complex. Both are fantastic. Arise is pretty good too.
attack on titan
