View Full Version : Konnichiwa, I'm new...

Hello everyone. I found this place looking for suggestions for animes I should take up next instead of sifting through links and links of anime that is very good (and some not so good), but just doesn't fit my taste. I figured why not post what I've finished and enjoyed on an offical anime site and maybe others from here that had the same interests in those shows would be kind enough to offer some suggestions of which ones to try out.

*****I'm new here and have never posted or been to a forum in my life. So if there is another place on here I should post this please let me know.*****

Shows I've finished and enjoyed listed from most enjoyed to not enjoyed as much but still a good watch. All of these I watched in Japanese with english subs except when stated otherwise :

1. Death Note (BEST ANIME (or anything to watch for that matter) EVER! I fell in love with L. Not in the creepy fan-girl way but character-wise. I'll never find another to love like L.)
2. Samurai X (movie)
3. Devil May Cry (Played the games too so...)
4. Full Metal Alchemist (english)
5. Blood +
6. Naruto/Naruto Shippuuden (When they AREN'T killing us with pointless filler)
7. And some how I got sucked into Vampire Knight/VKGuilty (Which I thought ended horribly for Zero by the way. Yuuki is such a chick, falling for the flashy guy instead of the guy who really loves her...baka...)

As a note, years ago I use to watch DragonBall, DragonBall Z, Lupin the Third, Ruroni Kenshin and Inuyasha on Cartoon Network and enjoyed those too. I'll probably go back and try to watch some of those in Japanese with subs (no dubbing and cutting things out. Just anime in pure form.) to hold me off until I can get some ideas of where to go.

Maybe to get a better hold on my tastes it'd be better to list a few games I enjoy and why also. Just want to make sure I'm covering all bases here, haha.

All Tomb Raider: Lara Croft (for the adventure, slight humor, loads of action, plenty of mind boggling puzzles and fierce bosses all played by the one and only Lara Croft, Queen of Gameing in my book)

All Hitman (Seriously...should I have to explain? Killing professionally, stealthfully and with mad skills with a heartless agent is just awesome.)

1-3 Devil May Cry ( I like demons and mythologies. Plus who doesn't love a cocky jerk with an ego big enough to explode an entire circle of Hell that just so happens to be the good guy? I know I do, haha. With usually a good plot and good creatures to defeat it makes for a great hack n' slash that still has a point to it.)

I love mythologies, mysteries, murders, action, adventure, hand to hand, weapons, randomness, tactfulness, puzzles, modern, ancient, laughs but not to the point of stupidity, characters that the viewers can connect with, ones who hold onto you long after the show is over. Any show with even one of these traits I'm willing to check out. I'm just at a loss of what to watch next. Thanks so much in advance. Jaa!

Hi.. I'm a Zero fangirl too.... :laugh:

Yea.. it's quite a tough end for Zero but I think that's the best for all.. He simply can't be with a pureblood..

01-25-2009, 01:02 AM
Yeah, I understand the reasons for it all. But I'm a girl who likes to fight for the underdog, love the geek, falls in love with the creepy guy no one likes so... I just feel like Yuuki was too much of a chick and she didn't even deserve Zero anyway. I just feel like Zero didn't get the short end of the stick...he got the stick snatched away from him. He finally learns to open up to someone and she leaves him like it's no biggie. I didn't watch the show for her anyway. I watched it for Zero. I liked his character. I took this show up as a way to pass time pretty much. But I found myself coming back every week to see what was new, haha.

Hallo and welcome.
My one suggestion for you, if you haven't already seen it, is Detective Conan/Case Closed. I love the series. It's very reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes (which given it's proper title should be obvious) and is cute and fun.

I can't think of anything else (that you haven't already named) to add right now, but I'm sure someone will have some suggestions for you.

Your friendly mod,

You say I've seen a lot already. But in all honesty, according to all the titles (good or bad) I've seen, I have hardly glimpsed at the edge of this vast expance which is great anime. I know great anime that also fits my tastes are elsewhere out there than the little I've seen. I just need a little help in finding it. That's where joining this forum comes in, haha.
