    Default Just getting into anime, could use a recommendation

    Hi everyone. I joined this forum because I have a specific question to ask. My roommate and I have slowly been getting into anime. I have seen a dozen in the past, he hasn't seen any.

    We've tried a few and most don't appeal to us, but there are so many that we just need a suggestion from people more knowledgeable.

    We're looking for something similar to "Claymore" and "Berserk" - That means, sort of an adult-action-dark-fantasy anime. Preferably something that's available on Netflix right now.

    Just how adult are we talking here? Cause a few titles that come to mind have some serious adult content. Otherwise Darkside Blues is good. Hmm, Akira is another good one, but I've been told it's alittle advanced for people just getting into anime.

    I don't know how to articulate "adult" other than give those two examples - Berserk and Claymore. Also, I should have specified we are looking for an anime series and not a movie.

    there is a series on netflix you may enjoy titled : full metal alchemist.

    It's the only decent anime i can think of on netflix (although i do not know much baout the netflix selection)

    It's not adult but once you get into the series it gets pretty deep and very interesting. don't get throw off by how the first few episodes seem really kiddish

    Hmm, Darker than Black, Burst Angel, and Code Geass are pretty good, but probably not as dark as you might like. I'm sure I know of some other series, but would have to check my lists to be sure of titles I've seen.

    Howdy there. So I'm not really good at fitting things into genres but I can give you my favorite titles. :3 My favorite ever is Eureka 7. I would also recommend Elfen Lied, which might be a little bit more what you're looking for, if by dark you mean gore. >.> I also totally back every title that has already been named, as I have watched and loved them all. I hope this helps. ^^~

    Sadly, I think that's all the titles I can come up with since I kinda switched from the darker kind to more of an ecchi/fanservice lately.
