Right now all I have is Akira and Ghost in the Shell... I saw this one awhile back that I loved called Jin-Roh. Also love the Studio Ghibli stuff. Also loved Dragon Ball Z and Pokemon as a kid.

So where do I go from here? I like art house, surreal and/or intelligent stuff.

[edit: Oh yeah and I enjoyed Macross Plus.]

My list is a little bloody...

Paprika
Ergo Proxy
Blood Trinity
Fairy Tail
One Piece (if you don't mind the rather unique style of anime)
Hellsing (again, if you don't mind the unique style of anime)
Blood+/Blood the Last Vampire (I haven't watched the newest but the Blood+ version is the best out of the rest).
Netflix's Castlevania (short but getting 8 more episodes in 2018).
Trigun
Cowboy Bebop
Outlaw Star
Ninja Scroll
Attack on Titan
Appleseed
Blueseed
Blue Exorcist
Bubblegum Crisis 2040 (cyberpunk and remake of an earlier anime)
Gundam Wing (there are a lot of Gundam Wing series out there but the original is one of the best mech animes, it's up there with Macross... well in my opinion anyway)

Watch Full Metal Alchemist series completely and then watch FMA: Brotherhood afterwards. Both are really good, Brotherhood is the better of the two but the differences in story lines makes it worth it.

I see there's already a ton of lists on top of my reply, so I'm not going to give you more since it will take your entire life to watch all of those. I'll just select the best one out of my 100+ must watch anime list: Charlotte
this is just the best.:kaoblush:

Yeah, One Punch is pretty awesome. Everybody's list is going to be unique to their tastes. My all-time favorite has been Deathnote. Recently Netflix added Little Witch Academia: I always loved magic and that one has a lighthearted funny humour to it too. My favorite comedy anime is My Bride is a Mermaid.

I definitely have to second watching Fullmetal Alchemist, both versions are great. You've already got a lot of great suggestions, so I'll just go with some of the shows that stayed stuck in my head long after watching:
  • Death Parade
  • Serial Experiments Lain
  • Last Exile
  • Beautiful Bones: Sakurako's Investigation
  • Psycho-Pass
  • Darker than Black

That's probably because we were trying to be serious and considerate, not play anime memes on people.

I haven't really been able to get into anime much so I have little to recommend. I'm a big fan of RWBY, though ... despite the fact that season 4 was kinda awful. Here's hoping that season 5 is a return to form. It doesn't take long to watch either (about 3 hours per season).

@Mr. Detective Pls keep us innocent.....

Welp unless you're a weirdo like me, I doubt you'd watch my recommendations, but if you are, let the craziness begin! xD

  • Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt: I personally think this is a good starter because it's like American animation, but still counts as anime. Like a South Park thing. xD
  • Black Butler: A lil bit odd, but IMO it's a good anime.
  • Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon: This anime. Yes
  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Confusing as fudge, but a good story once you get it.
  • Love Live: Sunshine!: Not my favourite ever, but for moe, it's decent.
Now you know I'm a weirdo once and for all! XD

Bungou Stray Dogs.



Also, there's a new Fate for anyone who is wondering.
But who cares,
Bungou Stray Dogs.

@Arisa-Chan If you go in this style, how dare you omit Lucky star, shame on you! :kaomad3:

As for being a weirdo, I think we all already know :kaocry:
But we don't mind at all, after all it would be very sad if everyone was the same :kaoluv:

Don't watch Sao...It's little more than a power fantasy Harem anime.

The Protagonist is a near untouchable god who has every woman in the game wrapped around his finger.
And yet he still has the balls to angst whenever he finds himself alone.


His love interest aka Asuna aka the only character that has a notable amount of screen time and a personality is thrown into a rape dungeon after the first half of season 1.

The antagonists are each equipped with retarded reasons for being evil

All the female characters share one face

If anime like one punch man and attack on titan get people into anime....

Sao pulls them out of it....Sao is easily one of the most disliked anime's ever made for a reason.

This forum is a great source of procrastination for me.
Today I read "The mouth speaks what the heart is full of." Simple, and reminds me I have a ton of work to do.
Why are cats so darn cute when their tongues are sticking out? If I did that, it wouldn't have the same effect.
The joy when you see a notification, the down when it's just a unnecessary quote of one of your posts again.
