  1. Default Anime Recommendation Thread

    Hello friends. I've been meaning to make a recommendation thread for myself a while now and am tired of watching mediocre junk but I usually don’t like what people recommend. So I’m making a general recommendation thread for avid anime watchers and closet otakus where anyone can recommend anyone anything or recommend against (anime reference thread, if you will).

    I'm going to ask that if you want a title on the list, please post it in this format:

    Title | Main genre | Other relevant genres | # of episodes
    Also, make sure it's a title that I can google it by. If I can't google it, I'm not going to add it... or just end up asking you about it.

    It's hilarious and romantic in a cute way in my opinion.

  4. Default

    Adding my recommendation for Clannad, Bakemonogatari, and Ouran. I guess I'll list off some of my picks.

    Serial Experiments Lain
    Boogiepop Phantom
    Paranoia Agent


    Cowboy Bebop
    Monster (Drama, purely serious)
    Eden of the East
    Code Geass (Mech)
    Full Metal Alchemist
    Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex


    Detroit Metal City (Music)
    Seto no Hanayome (Romance)
    Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (Satire)
    Cromartie High School (Slice of life)
    Hayate no Gotoku (Romance)
    Hidamari Sketch (Slice of life)
    Excel Saga (Parody/What the fuck am I watching?)
    Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi (Parody)
    Weclome to the NHK
    Azumanga Daioh (Slice of life)

    Princess Tutu (Magical Girl)
    Spice and Wolf (Adventure/Romance/Economics?)
    5 Centimeters Per Second (Drama/Romance. This is a movie, not a series.)
    The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Sci-fi/Drama)

    All for now. I'll probably think of some more to add later. Sections like Comedy are tagged, because "Comedy" is a bit too general of a group. Though you can get the other genre from my links anyway, I felt like tagging the subgenre that stands out. A series may include "Romance" in it, but it's not a focal point of the comedy or anything.

    Edit -
    Second this.

  5. Default

    I don't really recommended Pokemon unless you're really tolerant of the stupidity it provides. Once in a while they'll throw out an amazing episode that makes it worth while though.

    Seconding this.

    Also, I didn't like Baccano! :/

    By the way, add Evangelion and Chaos;Head (even though the VN was better) to the list, you pansy.

    Ouran High School Host Club

    Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

  9. Default

    Recommending ones that are already up:
    -Rumbling Hearts (mostly drama, very little nudity, some romance)

    Recommending ones that are yet to be up:
    -Escaflowne (Every time someone forgets about how awesome of a series this was, it makes me want to punch them in the face. I remembered this one time irl, a dude asked me if I watched certain animes. I nodded, then I asked "Have you seen Escaflowne?", he paused for a 2 seconds and was like "OH F*CK YEAH!!!!". When someone IRL knows about this, makes me feel really good, bro. If they don't, I just stop talking with them.)
    -Elfen Lied
    -Gundam Wing , Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (because Seed sucks)

    I'll list some more over time. Thanks for putting my username for some anime that you knew I'd totally recommend, jack-ass.

    PS: Ken, I was pretty f*cked up last night, I just saw your PM earlier, lol.. I had like 3 full glasses of that sh`it. :| I didn't go to bed til near 2 AM? Not sure, but I don't have a migraine in the morning, so I'm lucky.

    Durarara! and So·ra·no·wo·to.

  11. Default

    Where's Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou and B gata H kei?

  12. Default

    EHHH.. I 2nd that on Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, still an ongoing series, and it's great. B Gata H Kei, I do watch pretty much every week, but there's been no real major progress, and it's just one of those anime I watch that I'm not overly into. /opinion

    Same goes for One Piece, Naruto, and most of the newer stuff that I enjoy watching, but won't recommend. So yes:

    I recommend Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou

  13. Default

    Updated up to Johnson's post (haven't included secondings yet). Thread got posted in 5 times when I was adding in Dyxanije and Spidey's list. Also, will be breaking it list into the show's "main" genre. It came out bigger than expected.

    I didn't add Trapze yet because was linking me to Kūchū Buranko. Wasn't sure if that was a hyperlinking mistake or naming mistake.

    I put I didn't like Baccano! you plantainhead :>

  15. Default

    Creator of Higurashi + Creator of Rozen Maiden. What could go wrong?!

    Wait...what do those two series have in common?

    Might try reading the VN for this sometime to see if it's just a bad adaptation. Don't have too many high hopes about it, and since it's untranslated I have less reason to try it out,

    No, it's the same thing. The series itself was released with an English title, so I used that. If a series got an English title added after its release (when it was licensed in the US or something) I usually don't use that name since I'm more used to its Japanese name.

    Should have noted that in my post.

    We should get this thread stickied by the way.

  17. Default

    Delicious lolis. That's what was lacking from Ookami.

    Separated tables by genres.

  18. Default

    Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo is The Girl Who Left Through Time.

  19. Default

    Recommending some really older stuff too:

    Ai to Yuuki no Pig Girl Tonde Buurin (other names: Tonde Buurin, and Super Pig)
    Juuni Senshi Bakuretsu Eto Rangers

  20. Default

    Code Geass++
    Gurren Lagann--
    Boogiepop Phantom--
    Elfen Lied++
    Ghost in the Shell++

    Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex should probably be separated into two series. The two "seasons" aren't really connected at all.

    Kino's Journey (Slice of Life? Other? 13 episodes)
    Planetes (Slice of Life, sci-fi, drama, 26 episodes)
    Shinesman (Comedy, parody, super sentai, 2 episodes)
    Dragon Half (Comedy, fantasy, 2 episodes)
    Gunslinger Girl (Drama, action, 13 episodes)
    Haibane Renmei (Slice of Life, 13 episodes)
