    Default I'm a very picky Anime Fan -- Need Help

    Let me start off by saying something you will gather by the time you finish reading this. I am a very picky person when it comes to anime.

    I currently need help finding a good anime that is more or less based along the lines or similar to that of my top 3 favorite ones
    1) Yu Yu Hakusho
    2) Bleach
    3) Full Metal Alchemist

    (I know this is a very common top 3 list, but I haven't been too adversed with anime yet, but want to get into it more so in the manners listed below if possible)

    I love these anime because you can really get involved with the main character and even with the side characters. The story is extremely well written for each of these in my opinion. The action is great and creative, they all have special powers and fight in creative manners. I am right now on episode 278 of Bleach. I hate filler arc when I am so encased in the main story. I skipped the filler arc seasons (not including the Bount season or the Past season, I watched them) but will revisit them once I finish the main story line. I also dislike watching in japanese dub essentially because I'm too lazy to read the text quickly and it distracts me (I have terrible ADHD), so I prefer stories that are dubbed and (wishful thinking) that they are completely dubbed beginning to end, unlike Bleach. Once I watch episode 282 I will have to wait a week for each episode...

    I like sword fighting (Bleach), individually based super powers (Yu Yu), and abilities that challenge the mind and also work individually (FMA). I need to be enveloped with the characters and their mission, the story has to be riveting.

    My question to you is can you help me find a few new animes that fall within these lines or along these lines that you believe I would love. Please help, anime is amazing and I want to continue watching it. Maybe even something a little different than these but has an amazing storyline to it, to kind of spread my horizons.

    Thank you in advance ^_^ I will be checking back every so often for replies.

    Sounds like you like shounen so it seems obvious to recommend One Piece, Naruto and Fairy Tail. I would recommend One Piece first and foremost, then Naruto and then Fairy Tail.

    Death Note is not a shounen but it is story and character driven, it contains mind games because the characters are smart as heck. Samurai Champloo has swords which im sure is evident in its name lol. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. Hellsing Ultimate.

    You can read up on these shows online more if you want, honestly there's just so much to recommend its hard to say, im sure this is enough for now.

    Thank you for your replies. I will check them out, I have heard good things about One Piece and Death Note.

    The reason I have not given Naruto a try yet is because I hear it is extremely filler arc bloated. I can't stand that -.-u

    Yu Yu Hakusho is definitely my all time favorite, I suggest it to anyone who asks my opinion on anime ^_^ I wish it would have gone on more than 4 seasons.

    I have seen both FMA and FMAB. Loved them both, FMAB is definitely better I agree.

    I heard Death Note is a very short series, is that correct? What exactly is it about?

    death note is about light yagami who finds a death note a book whoever's full name you wright in it dies of a heart attack unless you specify otherwise he kills off criminals and sees himself as a god of justice and gets the nickname kira i'm not gonna spoil any of the story but i defenatley recommend and its not short but its not long its a good length that wont let it get to where it seems boring and dragged out

    Death Note is 50+ episodes, thats not short considering alot of shows are 13/24 episodes. Naruto's filler mania doesnt begin until episode 130 when the canon story takes a huge break, so that wont be a problem. If you dont like the show thats fine but dont let idiots tell you its filler bloated for a person who is just starting to watch the show, because its not.

    I' m not sure if it would suit your tastes, but I always recommend Nabari no Ou. It's only 26 episodes but it's amazing with an intriguing storyline and amazing characters that have great development and are not as black and white as they first appear. It's about ninjas in a modern age, so there's some cool fights and a lot of thought put into it. It has a lot of heart, so I recomend giving it a go.

    I also recommend No.6 much for the same reasons. It's 11 episodes and one of my first animes so it holds special place and I think would fit your criteria of character-driven stories with a lot of development and an amazing story with some interesting twists.

    Maybe check out Neon Genesis Evangelion. Its a classic Anime and is as much a psychological anime as it is an action anime. Lots of character development and every episode has some new revelation or epic battle.

    I would reccomend to you Burst Angel. It's one of my favorite series, lots of gun fights and giant robots.
