    Default Tricky (?) recommendation request ;)

    Hi All Could I ask you for a recommendation of an anime worth watching?

    I liked:
    Ghost in the Shell (every season/movie)
    Cowboy Beebop
    Blue Submarine No. 6
    Cybersix
    Samurai Champloo
    Afro Samurai
    Chronicles of Lodoss War

    The question is tricky, because I have tried watching some of the recommended animes as 'great shows' on many sites and it turned out I don't find them so great after all.

    I didn't like:
    Trigun (it's just... silly... a guy does amazing fighting stuff and pretends it all happens by accident... wth? it's very funny, but too silly)
    Hellsing (good guy gets beaten to pulp each episode, then regenerates and kills bad guy; each episode the level of his damage increases, so does the level of badassness of the bad guy)
    Outlaw Star
    Desert Punk
    Full Metal Alchemist

    Thank you for your help!

    Blade of the Immortal, Paranoia Agent, Ergo Proxy, Deadman Wonderland... not all that similar to the ones you listed, but you may like them....

    Yeah I wasn't a huge fan to be honest, but seems like we have different tastes so I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think!

    Okay, have watched couple of episodes, not my cup of tea.
    Too serious/sad all the time, main protagonist seems boring compared to Afro Samurai and his 'friend', Mugen/Jin, etc.
    Supporting characters are not interesting either IMNSHO.
    Samurai Champloo, Afro Samurai and Cowboy Beebop mix some depth with great humour and wonderful soundtrack. There's nothing like it in those episodes of Blade of Immortal I've watched.
    edit: Ha! Black Lagoon seems promising!!!

    Sword of the Stranger was a kick-a Sword wielding Movie.

    Michiko to Hatchin had that comic/cool vibe.

    Basilsk is a pretty killer ninja/sword series.
    Sure Wish I had a little dvd player on my forklift at work... no, wait, that would be dangerous.

    Yeah I would totally agree with that. I love Samurai Champloo

    I would try Code Geass. It has mecha, humor, and a serious storyline. It is one of my personal favorites.

    Hi, thanks for the recommendations I have a bit less free time from now on, so it's going to take while to watch all these shows.
    Moreover - D3 release is drawing near ;]

    I'm afraid I've only seen a few animes you've listed, but my best friend watches most of those animes, and they've also liked Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Rosen Maiden, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Vampire Knight, and Sailor Moon. I would honestly recommend Kore ha Zombie Desu ka because its storyline is serious, but the anime revolves around the humor you're looking for, I believe. Sorry, I hope this helps!

    You didn't like FMA? you communist.

    ummmm.... you might find Eden of The East interesting. I also recommend Durarara.

    I don't see how you couldn't like Outlaw Star but to each their own I guess. .Hack//Sign was and still is a huge favorite of mine. Plus there's Noein which is a unique Sci-Fi anime with some interesting art style. Oh and they were both on American television which a lot of the shows you like seem to have in common. So maybe they'll tickle your fancy strange-ah.
