    Default Can you guys recommend some anime?

    Hello all,

    I am hoping that you all may be able to recommend some new anime that I may like. I will go ahead and let you know I am pretty picky when it comes to anime. I think the easiest way to help you guys understand is to list some of my favorite and least favorite anime. I really would appreciate some good recommendations. I love anime, but I just don't have time to sift through things on my own anymore. Finally, please don't be offended and feel the need to defend animes I say I don't like. It is nothing personal, just my taste and opinion. So here we go:

    Favorite:
    1) Fullmetal Alchemist - FMA is my favorite anime of all time. To put it simply, amazing story, amazing character development, and an appropriate amount of action. I love the original series and I am currently watching Brotherhood. I am about halfway through Brotherhood and I love it, but don't have save the same fondness as I did for the original series. I feel like they did a better job with character development and making you feel connected to the characters in the original series.

    2) Samurai X and Rurouni Kenshin - My reason for loving this is much the same as FMA, amazing story, amazing character development, and an appropriate amount of action.

    3) Gantz - A wonderfully original story. It's story moves at a good pace, they develop the characters, and great action.

    4) Samurai 7 - Beautiful story, wonderful characters and development, great action, and awesome art.

    5) Samurai Champloo - A fun story and interesting characters, that can become serious when it needs to be.

    6) Basilisk - Great story, action and characters.

    7) Hellsing Ultimate - This series is awesome and everything the original series should be. The original series was far too slow. It had a habit of rambling and the ending was garbage.

    8) Berserk - This anime has a lot of characteristic that would make me dislike most anime (it is slow and tends to ramble), but I think the amazing character development and cool action scenes made up for it. It is too bad the series lost funding when it did. I have been hoping for a remake for a while.

    9) Afro Samurai - Cool original anime that puts old Japanese themes to use.

    10) Read or Die - Amazing story and very original.

    11) Code Geass - This series can be a little campy, but I really like the characters and overall story. I just finished the first season of this anime and really enjoyed it.

    12) Pokemon - Okay, hear me out on this one. I loved it as a kid, but as I grew up I still find myself loving the premise and the video games. I would love to see this developed into a darker series. The premise is why I listed it.

    13) Ninja Scroll - Need I really say more?

    Least Favorite:
    1) Trigun - I appreciate how important this anime was at the time of its release, but I feel like the story was drawn out. Every episode dedicated itself to Vash hiding his identity and the last 5 or 10 minutes were actually dedicated to story.

    2) Neon Genesis Evangelion - My reason for not liking this is much the same as Trigun. It rambles and nothing happens until the last few minutes of the episode.

    3) FLCL (Fooly Cooly) - I don't like the voice acting, the story is slow and overall just does not make any sense. I don't like things that are weird for the sake of being weird.

    4) Dragonball Z - Awesome premise, but rambles and is far too drawn out.

    5) Inu Yasha - This series was awesome until Inu Yasha developed the ability to use the Windscar. After that he raped anything. Much like many of the other animes I have listed as not liking, it is soooo drawn out.

    6) Naruto - I tried watching it and it was just a little too kiddy and goofy for me. It seems like an awesome premise, but just too kiddy. I do hear Natuto Shippuden is awesome, though. Would I understand Shippuden if I don't watch the original series?

    7) Bleach - I will admit I have never watched this anime from the beginning, but the bits and pieces I have seen seem to have the same flaws as DBZ, Inu Yasha, and Naruto. Bleach seems like it is really drawn out and kind of kiddy/goofy. Am I wrong?

    8) Blood Brothers - I watched this and it just didn't do it for me. No reason, just didn't care for it.



    Okay, I am going to wrap this up. If you have read this far, I thank you and I apologize for the length. I am sure I have left a ton of stuff out I will kick myself for not listing it later. I would like to do one more quick list of stuff I have and plan to watch. These are animes that are either considered classics that I have never seen, I have read good reviews, or heard friends talk about them. Feel free to comment on these as well.

    Plan to watch:

    1) Soul Eater

    2) Elfen Lied

    3) Howl's Moving Castle

    4) Jin Roh

    5) Kiki's Delivery Service

    6) Laputa - Castle in the Sky

    7) My Neighbour Totoro

    8) Nausicaa Valley of the Wind

    9) Shingurui - Death Frenzy

    10) Spirited Away

    11) Blood the Last Vampire

    12) Sword of the Stranger

    13)Origin: Spirits of the Past

    14) Eden of the East (IF I CAN FIND IT!!!)



    Thanks again for reading. I truly appreciate it and look forward to the recommendations.

    I have't seen it myself but you might like Cowboy Bebop. I think it's got a similar feel to Samurai Champloo.

    Not sure though. Give it a look/google anyways, worth a shot

    Darker than Black - I like the setting for this anime and Yin's development during the series is amazing.
    Baccano!! - You might be confused in the first 2 episodes but this is a really good anime. It's unbelievable how they manage to get you to know all of the characters in such a short time when there is a massive cast.
    Durarara! - Same creators as Baccano!!, I like the story and there are some nice twists to the characters.
    Kara no Kyoukai - Awesome story, battles and graphics. Probably the one I recommend the most for you to watch.

    In regards to Naruto, I believe the series does pick up the pace during Shippuden and I don't remember how it was near the middle but the current arc right now is the very definition of drawn out. If you want to just skip to Shippuden just read the manga till the Shippuden part as you can go through it much faster and will get some necessary character backstories.
    I also agree with you on Bleach, DBZ and Inu Yasha. Most of these already long shounen do eventually try to make the plot longer ($$$). The last year of Bleach was possible to have been written in 10 chapters tops instead of the ~45.

    I higly recommened Grave of the fireFlies, its about two japanse kids who are strugling to surivive in japan near the end of world war 2 after their mother died, they move in with their aunt but then leave to live in a abandoned bomb shelter after she begins to treat them badly. It in my opion it is the best moive made by Studio Ghibli.

    Death note is also really good

    Glad to see Elfen Lied's near the top of your to watch list. Amazing anime, in my top 5.

    I'd reccommend the Final Fantasy Advent Children movie if you're into action; the original was better than the "complete" version; although the fight with Sephiroth was better in complete.

    I second Black Lagoon. I think it might be right up your alley. It's dark-themed, with a solid premise, and a lot of well-choreographed action.

    You might like to check out Seirei no Moribito (Guardian of the Spirit). It's a bit slow-paced but it has a rewarding plot, the art is amazing, and there are some pretty good fight scenes here and there.

    Eden of the East is on Netflix. That's where I watched it. Also, DEFINITELY watch the Hiyao Miyazaki movies you have listed, they are AMAZING. Garve of the Fireflies is a very good, thought provoking movie too. I liked Tokyo Godfathers as well.

    There is another anime series that I currently own, and it has action, blood and did I mention action?

    anyway, the series is called "The Vision of Escaflowne" and I highly recommend this if your looking for something that deals with traveling to another world and meeting with a king from a destroyed country who found out that his brother has gone to the evil side.

    You can find Eden of the East on Netflix and Spirited away is a great movie to watch made by the same people who did Howls Moving Castle.
