I'm looking for a new animu to watch, I've listed some of the stuff I highly rated, maybe there will be something others may be interested in listed below, but I would greatly appreciate any recommendations based on what you think I might love.

Animus: Serial Experiments Lain, Akagi, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, Psychiatrist Irabu, FMA:brotherhood, neongenesisevangerion, steins gate (prob gonna watch steins gate: zero if nothing seems better), Gilgamesh, Death Note, Ping Pong the animation, Baccano! , NHK…

Those are the best I can think of at the moment.


Those are a standard set of shows from any basic recommendation list that say nothing about your what taste might be. So how about you stick to those lists (or wherever you learned about those shows you watched) for now?


One very good place to start is to check out the threads where people are talking about anime they've watched. You get to know what they thought of it, and then can use this to judge if you want to watch it yourself.


tell me what kind of show you would like to watch next, what you want in it and I will recommend something that fits


Rurouni Kenshin


Might as well piggy-back OP…

I'm sorely tempted to switch to anime from video gaymes for my monotonous life-wasting NEET routine, but I haven't watched anything made since 2008. Other than kill la kill, which I enjoyed profoundly.

Is current anime really as bad as people say? I also have panty and stocking on file and it looked funny from the tiny bit I glimpsed.

I'm open to almost any genre except shounen/shoujo and moeshit. And sports. And horror. And car stuff. I hate cars.

I also won't watch that jojo adventure thing. I tried but the first episode made me physically ill.

Panty and stockings was made by the same team of kill la kill , it's a great anime


those are all little baby twink animes

watch all these before you move on to toonami /a/ junk for crossdressers.



Mushishi, Gunslinger succubus, Kino's Journey, House of Five Leaves, Kaiba, Mononoke, Tatami Galaxy.


>Is current anime really as bad as people say?
it's pretty bad, but there are some good modern series
Space Battleship Yamato 2199 - Space Opera
Parasyte - Horror/Sci-fi (think an anime version of The Thing)
Shinsekai Yori - Fantasy/Sci-fi
Hunter X Hunter - Battle Shounen


I need some stuff to watch. I was thinking either gash bell or death note. Which one is better? Also rec me general stuff please. I'm painfully bored, only stipulation is it can't focus on succubi. They can be there, but I don't want it to be the point of it.


Death Note, Gash is better if you read the manga IIRC, but it's been a while.


Thanks. Been trying to get back into anime lately cause I've had a bit of a falling out with it.


I recommend cardcaptor sakura


I've never seen any anime other than welcome to the nhk and a few hayao miyazaki movies.

Can anywiz recommend a good, long, comfy series that I can escape into? Something non-normalfaggish. Fantasizing about romance does nothing for me. I'm talking about something in a far off land. Friendships are ok. I also strongly appreciate pessimistic themes such as antinatalism,rational suicide, and nihilism.


Mushishi, monster and death note maybe, kino no tabi.


>a good, long, comfy series
>something in a far off land
>Friendships are ok
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu
Seirei no Moribito

>pessimistic themes such as antinatalism, rational suicide, and nihilism

Ergo Proxy
Casshern Sins
Shinsekai Yori


I'm looking for a semi realistic fighting show, thats main characters or most are adults. I don't want to watch a 12 year old twink go from zero to saving the world in a couple months. Western fantasy would be my preferred genre. The shows that I've watched and you guys might recommend are claymore, legend of the lotus flower. I don't plan on watching berserk unless its ending stands alone, and you guys say I have too.


There's JJBA if you've decided throwing realism out the window is fine. If you're fine with sports stuff there's boxing anime that are praised but I can't for the life of me remember the names right now.


Try Beelzebub. Not particularly realistic but funny as heck. Characters look quite adult-ish (despite being high-schoolers).


Hajime no Ippo. The MC starts out in high school but he graduates not too far into it and everyone else in the show is an adult. It's a great show, it will pump you up and make you want to fight.


I'm not interested in watching anything colorful at the moment.


Honestly you should watch the golden age arc for Berserk (90's anime). It sounds exactly like what you're looking for. It obviously doesn't have an ending though, more like a paradigm shift that starts a whole new story that has yet to be animated well.


Oh and also Shigurui: Death Frenzy kind of fits except it's not western fantasy and it also doesn't have a good ending.


Berserk it is


Can you recommend any animes where the protagonist experiences a lot of pain? I'm watching Ajin which is a great example since the protagonist is captured and tortured as part of government experiments.

Don't really care whether is physical or emotional.

>where the protagonist experiences a lot of pain?

>lily cat- an older movie, basically dead space where everyone gets fucked up by an aylmao virus

>Elfen Lied- premise of the show is kind a stupid, but abuse is one of the major themes of the show (physical and mental)

>the anime shortened to SukaSuka even though somewhat of a romance between the last human on earth and a fairy warrior, basically the entire show is about people suffering

>jin roh - one of the protagonists is a heartless killer supercop who machine guns people down, retelling of little red riding hood except "the wolf only looses in the stories told by men"

>Haibane Renmei- More about psychological suffering and loss, the art was pretty

Midori, some of the imagery in the film was so extreme that it was banned in certain countries, I think even in Japan for a while. It's about an innocent orphan succubus who is forced into joining a traveling freakshow who rape her and abuse her in other ways, by far the most disturbing and depressing anime I have ever seen.
Texhnolyze is also said to be very depressing but I never saw it in its entirety so I can't say for sure.
Gunslinger succubus is about a bunch of little succubi who lost their parents or were abonded by them and are turned into cyborg soldiers by the Italian government to fight mobsters.
I also recently saw a show called Brigadoon which fits into this category. I feel like I can't really explain what makes it depressing without spoiling it but let's just say that I have never experienced such a big tone shift in any piece of media.


The CGI in that show was really shit and I couldn't make it past the 10 minute mark of the first ep.

Who the fuck keeps deciding that 10 fps in CGI is tolerable? Someone needs to sit any Japaneses animator that is even thinks about using pure CGI that using normal anime frame rates are eye cancer and to bump up the frame rate dramatically to make it look good.
I have seen it done well so there is no reason why they keep making this same mistake over and over again.


I have never seen good CG in anime, mixing 2D with 3D will always look jarring to me. I don't mind if it's done for artistic purposes (like in Hyouge Mono with the teacups) but that's normally not the case. So me personally, I'd prefer if they stopped using it altogether.


Karas is probably the only decent example I've ever seen.


When it comes to mixed when it is done well it is actually pretty hard to notice.

Then there are the times it is used where it doesn't try that hard to blend but ascetically it works, like for the spider tanks in some of the scenes in GitS:SAC. The cars looked pretty bad in that show though.

So far I have only seen one anime show that is full 3d CGI that looked really good, which was Land of the Lustrous.

Hopefully the anime industry gets better at using it because realistically CGI and 3d CGI are not going away and only going to become more and more common as time goes on.


Oh, looks like one of those early 2000s deceptively cute shows disturbing on the inside, like Narutaru and such. Will give it a go, thanks.


never hear of it, is it really that graphic, or are people making a big deal out of it?
it is pretty bad, been a while since I watched it, but IIRC the guy looses his arm violently in the first episode, and it goes downhill from there, it did seem slow paced at times, and while I appreciate the artistic effect the pace had on the climate of the show, sometimes it was too drawn out.

>Gunslinger succubus

while some of it is depressing, the theme is more about cute succubi being violent killers and coping with not being loved in one way or another, the second season was not as good, but I watched it anyway

I am also unfamiliar with the last one you posted, care to explain what it is about?


>Land of the Lustrous
What the hell is the deal with that show? I see people on youtube and other normalfag sites claim it to be one of the most beautiful shows in recent years but it looks worse than Kemono Friends to me. Maybe it's so good narrative-wise that it makes viewers not realise how ugly it is but as an unbiased person who doesn't know what's it about I can safely say that it looks worse than most full-CG anime. The only good-looking CG anime I know of is Gantz: O. Now, if all anime had CG on that level I would stop complaining about it for good but so far that's the only piece of Japanese animation that managed to make 3D look beautiful. Not passable or good enough compared to other examples (which is what most people probably mean when they say that something like Land of the Lustrous looks good) but actually beautiful and on par with 2D works.
Yep, it starts out as what seems like a cute children's show but while it already gets somewhat dark in the first half, it goes all out with it after episode 12.
>is it really that graphic
Yes, it contains some very disturbing body horror imagery and an infamous scene of a guy trampling puppies to death with his shoes.
>it is pretty bad
Well, me personally I dropped it after that first episode recently which is why I said I didn't finish it. But I'd like to give it another try because it at least tries something different from most anime and that's something I can appreciate.
>I am also unfamiliar with the last one you posted, care to explain what it is about?
It's about a succubus who finds a blue robot who protects her from alien robots. It would a bit difficult to go further into detail as A) like I already said, it would spoil the enjoyment of seeing insanity enfold before your eyes and B) because it kind of changes genre every few episodes. It goes from a monster of the week EVA ripoff to a comedy to a drama to a magical succubus's show to a Lovecraftian apocalypse in its runtime.


It is beautiful in the artistic sence of the word.
The use of color, light, shot composition, movement all create feast for the eyes in certain scenes.
What do you find objectionable about how it looks other then it not looking exactly like standard modern anime style?


I am looking for a martial arts anime that isn't shonen or rely on shonen tropes. So no power level bullshit, no magical weapons, no fire balls and magical finishing techniques, no transformations.
Just straight up martial artist on martial artist action.

It not being set anywhere near a high/middle school is a big plus but can be overlooked if the action is good.


It looks like someone made a bunch of shitty anime succubus models in blender and the animated the whole thing in SFM.


File: 1539626764252.jpg (73.62 KB, 1202x626, 601:313, Land-of-the-Lustrous-PFI.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

As >>28476 already kind of said, it just looks very unprofessionally done. I don't believe that you cannot see how ugly the CG is. No amount of lighting or shot composition can fix a show that looks like someone wanted to make an horror anime about Barbie dolls.
>standard modern anime style
Based on the character designs, it actually seems to go out of its way to look like anime except in 3D rather than the more standard 2D. It failed horribly though.


This looks great though. I really don't understand.


1. it still looks good
2. I am not sure what you are expecting, Pixar movie 3d CG level on a tv budget?


looks like some amputee fetish fuel


I totally forgot that such a fetish was even a thing.
They get put back together pretty easily most of the time so I doubt it.


I'm really glad to see someone else shilling Houseki no kuni here, it's been easily one of my favorites in the latest years next to Rakugo.
You need to be able to look past the CGI which is very competent compared to most CGI, they made it so the animated parts compliment the CGI, making them look a lot more alive and expressive, I really look forward to what else Studio Orange is making.
Houseki deals with a lot of themes from self harm, to trying to find a purpose in life and being a burden to everyone around you, it can get very grim sometimes, there's enough Manga content for more than another season, so consider reading the Manga too.


Anyone know of something with a fucked up twist ending that will make you feel bad?
I am kind of in a mood for something to fuck my shit up, but not sure how to look up something like that without end up getting it spoiled.


I guess I should just ask here.
Should I watch the normal version of Psycho-Pass session one or the re-edit?

x: the movie


You mean the movie that makes almost no sense half the time and nearly every oldtaku has seen at least a decade ago including myself.
It just doesn't tell its story well enough to have much of a emotional impact.


Berserk comes to mind.


Good but seen it, and I am not watching the CG abomanation.
Read the manga too but kind of lost intrest when they were stuck on the boat for 7 years. Will probably eventually get back to reading it but I have kind of moved on.


Fuck it, I will just watch the re-edit. According to the comments it is nearly identical anyway.


This show is weird. They are fine with detailed shots of people blown to giblets but nipples must be obscured at all cost even in the dvd version.
Whatever, it is a pretty good show so far.


I remember an 80s or 90s oav about some man fighting extra-dimensional lovecraftian monsters with power he got from learning the vedas (iirc). Violent show. The finale was honestly disturbing. You thought he saved the world but it's revealed the full invasion happens in like 15 years. End scene is him slumped down in a chair in front of TV with an empty booze bottle, unshaven and depressed that he'll be powerless to fight it, while the camera moves in and haunting music plays.

Wish I could find that anime again.


>nearly every oldtaku has seen at least a decade ago including myself
This board is full of youngfag casuals who only watch seasonal anime though.

kind of smilar theme.. the CG sucked and some of the movie was rushed, but overall it was really depressing, and the plot twist might fuck you up


I will give it a watch
Shame you can't remember the name because it sound right up my alley.


saw that, the twist sorta caught me off guard, but wasn't on "fuck my shit up" level imo
I'll find it. Even if I gotta dredge through mal all week.


Finished watching it.
It was ok. Not great but glad I watched it. For a while I thought I knew where it was going but it managed to surprise me a bit.
I do agree with the wiz above about it not being that bad, it was still very emotional.


Btw I spent like 20 hours on MAL, where I found this show originally in 2010, checking everything and can't find it again, it's like they deleted the entry. I also googled everything. If anyone remembers the show in question please say something.


Might be this one:
I don't remember its ending though.


No. I should've been more specific.

80s/early90s non-high school, non-mecha supernatural and/or horror ova with an animation style similar to Wicked City or Demon City Shinjuku. Adult male has magic martial arts learned from the rigvedas or some vedic shit. The bhagavad gita is mentioned routinely in his power-up incantations. Hideous red tentacle monsters with fangs who speak japanese in a deep monster voice appear from dimensional rips in thin air to fight him. Spooky ending.

I'm sure this is a long shot.



A simpler story would have been better, since it seemed pretty forced to me. In the end, the source of conflict boils down to a sisters' fight.


The level of complexity of the story was fine and went with the whole dream like feel they were going for but a lot of the execution and finer details of the story were not good. I really think it needed more time in preproduction or someone with more experience in the story they were trying to tell at the helm.


Ayakashi: Japanese Classic Horror


Is Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu good?


It's classy and very aesthetical, but you'll have to tolerate certain fujoshi-oriented undertones. Also it's gonna be kinda boring unless you are interested in the subject (Japanese theatrical arts and rakugo in particular).


There's also a startling amount of maturity in the story with how the characters act about their profession. MC is a felon trying to chase his dream. Very serious for an anime, but saying it's bad would be wrong. Not that fun.
I liked Kabukibu! mostly because of the enthusiasm behind it. It's fujopandering but it doesn't overdo that and focuses on making the Kabuki more understandable, and it got me interested in watching actualy Kabuki on youtube. Show flew under the radar because it's not succubi. If you did the show with the characters gender swapped(even the prince succubus character), I think everyone would have loved it.

Watch hare + guu


its nice. the first season is a bit of a mess, but the second season improves on it. my bigget complaint is how they handled the rakugo segments. the director relied on wacky crazy xD camera movements instead of focusing on character animation, so you don't actually get the feel of rakugo even though the segments take up huge portions of episodes.


What is this "animu" thing I hear everywhere? It sounds dumb as shit.


It's a cultural trend on the internet to cutesy the words 'anime' and 'manga', most notably 4chan /a/ was renamed "Animu and Mango" for a while.
That was done because it was already popular among the users. Anime is highly cute-centric, so this is similar to puppy-talk or baby-talk. The instincts of people are literally being twisted to regard anime as babies, hence the animu term.
I think there's an expectation in anime that you do only what anime is capable of like with whacky camera angles. If you watch the bakemonogatari series that's in full effect, they can't upstage Nisho's dialogue so they show a bunch of strange architecture and close-ups with slow-mos of the characters talking and call that a 'show'.
If you want to see Rakugo I'd go watch it on youtube, or Kabuki if you want to see kabuki. Watching a show like Kabubki-bu! is about as far as you can get from Kabuki. It was never about the Kabuki, it's about showing people with anime what kabuki is like, Kabuki-bu! specifically is clearly aimed at a young female audience just like Shouwa Genroku is aimed at fujo/mature audiences.

Are there any anime with an atmosphare like BLAME! ?

Dreary, desolate, dark…


Angel's Egg and to a much lesser extent Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou.


Cardcaptor Sakura: the original series, movies and clear card.

basically about how shitty humans are, story takes place in a dystopian underworld where people with prosthetic limbs are seen as bad

>serial experiments Lain

this one is a classic, dark, depressing, and all about isolation

>Ergo Porxy

the entire series is dark, and gets progressively darker

>Shinsekai yori

seemed dark and slow, I did not watch the entire series tho, so cannot say for certain

you might like heibane renmai and nieA under 7 (both are a little more colorful, but slow and have some darker themes)

Angels egg and the apocalypse potatoes were also good like >>29703 said


Now and Then, Here and There. Simple plot of idealistically facing the power develops real and grim. Personal choices turn out deadly regardless of a character's general way being obedience or reaction, withdrawal or self-sacrifice, dog eat dog or negotiation, tech or simplicity, paranoia or bliss. Look for multiple alternative downloads or buy a disk, the torrents I've found had a single source with severe video encoding issues.

Lain is surreal action, not depressive at all. Would be nice if you elaborated on the show's isolation theme.


don't know about anime but if you're interested in blame you should check out the rest of the author works like abara
Q Hayasida was an assistant of Nihei so her style was similar


Seen Ghost in the Shell movies? Seen the GitS TV?




How's My Hero Academia? Any recommendations for it?


The story is average or even bad(even for shounen standards) but the production is quite high for a shounen as it does not air through out the year but takes seasons off(this also reduces filler).


Go for it if you like shounen or just action anime in general


pretty awful but okay as an entry level shounen I guess? Once you've seen the better ones it becomes laughable


I’m looking for a SoL/comedy anime with some kind of supernatural or sci-fi twist, like Devil Part-timer. Something that isn’t too long.


Kobayashi dragon maid


Looks good! What’s the correct watch order?


start with the last episode and then work your way chronologically from the second and then watch first episode


you're wrong, optimal watch order looks more like 8->13->7->2->4->3->12->1->9->5->14->6->11->10, maybe switch 7 and 9 if you want to get the "purist" experience but can gain a bit more experiential detail with my preferred order. i would also say starting with 12 instead of 8 is a viable alternative but if you do that you may want to watch 14 before 5 and 1, due to the overall impacts on the storyline. overall it's up to you but i think you shouldn't approach this show with such a broad category of chronology, it takes an expert's eye to properly spot the chain of events that flow in a given "proper" watch order. certainly not something that can be sussed out by someone who has watched less than 1500 shows, which judging by your lazy approach, i am forced to conclude that you have only watched about 7 or 8 hundred, maximum.


It was funny at first, wiz. Anyway, I’m not asking about watch order of specific episodes. I’m asking about watch order of releases for Kobayashi.


watch season 1 before you watch season 1

What order should I watch the FATE franchise?


File: 1565618543369.png (3.37 MB, 1422x2000, 711:1000, Fate Astolfo 033.png) ImgOps iqdb

Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works and then Fate Zero.

Fate/stay night isn't very good, probably the reason they remade it.

Fate Zero is a prequel but it would be better to watch the main one first.

Fate Apocrypha is stand-alone but it helps to know the lore of the world.

Fate Extra is stand alone, not very good, quite odd and while it does have some recurring characters it does not seem to actually be set in the same world.

Prisma Illya is also set in a kind of alternative world and also stand alone with some recurring characters.

In Summary after you watch Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works or Fate/stay night it no longer matters what order you watch the rest in because they are stand alone or a prequel.


Start with Fate/Zero first as it's the best one in the series. Then watch UVE. After that it's all garbage.

Wow, I loved it! Any other recommendations?? Also, any good scary series?


Well junji ito’s short stories got animated but most people didn’t like the adaptation, so it’s kind of neither here nor there.


>any good scary series
it isn't really that scary, but Shiki is pretty ok and has a horror atmosphere.
Also if you liked Kobayashi I would give it a go to Hinamatsuri, its also a SOL with supernatural twist.

Can anyone recommend some recent (say 2015 onwards) good fighting anime?


Megalo box is really good.
There is also Baki 2018
The King of Fighters: Destiny if you are not bothered by full CGI
I have heard good things about Majutsushi Orphen Hagure Tabi but haven't watched it myself yet.
And there is a new Yu Yu Hakusho Special which is also on my to watch list.

That should keep you busy for awhile.


Hinomaru Sumo


>new Yu Yu Hakusho Special
Why though?


Funny anime?


Comedy is really subjective, especially japanese comedy. What kind of stuff do you find funny? That'll help recommend you things.


Why I am interested, (still haven't gotten around to watching it yet) because I like the show and nostalgia
Why they made it, don't know for sure but ether money or there was just a good story left to be told.
Can't personally vouch for the quality though.


I'm completely brand spanking new to anime, what should I watch? What would you all recommend? I'm open to pretty much anything, even crazy or weird shit.

Go with kino's journey(2003),it has very comfy atmosphere.or go with ib instant bullet if you are up for some reading, it's a bit edgy in the start and the first chapters not as good as the rest but it's really good, it may seem like it's about the supernatural with all of the super power bs but it's very much about people, dysfunctional people trying to cope and be happy.

I hope I haven’t put people off of some good manga and anime because of my autism;I am terrible at selling people on stuff so I would recommend you just look up the names of the anime and manga online and see how other people sell you on it.


What kind of stuff do you like when it comes to shows and movies?


my favorite anime of all time is Hokuto no Ken. is there anything similar to that?
i've tried two so far….

saint seiya was like an instant gratification version of HnK. HnK develops characters for sometimes 10 whole episodes before they have an epic fight and a tragic backstory reveal. saint seiya wants the epic fight and the tragic backstory RIGHT NOW. it's unearned and artless. i hated it within 4 episodes.

i hate every single aspect of jojo's bizarre adventure. i don't want to even talk about it since it's a sensitive subject with weeaboos. looking at it makes me angry. it's like the "IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE SHIT" meme in anime form.


not anime but

Karate Apocalypse
Tiger Mask

these are similar


Md Geist
Hellsing Ultimate


Try shigurui if you want an epic grudge match with a hell of a backstory. I would also recommend Berserk, but only the original anime, everything that has come after that was CGI trash. Code Geass is another that comes to mind with an epic struggle with characters with good backstories but it is less similar overall, emphasizing feats of intelligence rather than physical strength on the part of the main character. One Piece also may not be too far off although it can be kind of childish. Just make sure to skip the filler.

Lately I've been trying to find an anime that shares similarities with Princess Tutu in terms of aesthetics, funny and likeable characters, episodic format, childish tone and the fact that it can be taken seriously.
Shows that I have already watched (and liked) that follow the criteria are: Full Moon wo Sagashite, Heartcatch Precure, Kaleido Star and Ojamajo Doremi.
Other shows that I have watched but didn't like as much are: Sailor Moon, Lyrical Nanoha, Cardcaptor Sakura, Flip Flappers and Little Witch Academia.


princess tutu is one of my favourites, i don't think you'll find much like it. but i do recommend fancy lala


Same. Since I watched it some months ago Tutu became one of my all time favourites. Thanks for the recommendation.

Gurls und Panzer for bishoujo and tanks.


Anyone seen Beastars?
Is it just furry fetish or is it worth watching?
t. not into furries


It gets praised basically everywhere so go for it. I still haven't checked it because I have issues with furshit but supposedly it's nothing like that.


It’s weird. You might be turned off by the constant relationship stuff. It starts out pretty strong but gets just weirder and weirder and crazier as it goes on. It’s not really fetish bait, though there are some questionable parts.


It also uses 3DCG primarily.


Can anyone tell me an anime or manga similar to Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, but without the succubus? I feel like that would have potential and that it would exist. Sorry for being so specific.


Watched it last month. Not bad but not memorable. There's no real grand purpose to the show I could see, other than maybe moralizing about the "herbivores vs carnivores" social dynamic. Whatever, I thought. I lost interest and continued watching like I was just a voyeur to a weird alien planet in the middle of some weird evolutionary struggle, i.e. learning not to eat your classmates.


The manga has a lot more to it, and a lot more interesting stuff. Though it can't stay focused on more than a few things at a time, but it goes into the ethics of crossbreeding, and even a bit of existential stuff as legosi contemplates what he wants to do with his life.


yeah well, mangas usually have more than their anime adaptations, I still don't see the point

who wants to read a whole long manga series about ethics and morality in some alien anthro world that you can't even relate with


Why go into the functions and politics of any fantasy world? It's interesting.


what's so interesting about something so brutish as to eat or not to not your neighbor


*not to eat


It's interesting because it's a fantastical topic you'll never encounter and bother to think about in real life and thus stimulate thoughts and imagination you've never had before. Maybe eating each other is too gory for you. I am fine with it though.


>thus stimulate thoughts and imagination you've never had
the only thing it made me think was why don't the herbivores just carry handguns and problem solved


does anyone know the show I was talking about? I have a clear memory of watching it, even though it was over ten years ago, I found it on myanimelist while paging through the thousands of listings in "top anime,"…I just took another stab at finding it but the process takes so freaking much time

it was a really creepy show with a haunting end scene, it is not battle royal high school


can someone recommend ajin demi human? I suddenly remembered the trailer from years ago, it looked interesting, but the smallest active torrent left on nyaa is 1gb per episode and that's just dumb, I'm not busting my bandwidth cap on a show that may be a waste of time


CGed shit.


CGI doesn't bother me, I'm not one of those people

I mean from the standpoint of story etc, is ajin demi human worth watching?


He's just being a fag anyway. The GG looks fine at first glance, not some awful shit like kemono friends. I haven't seen it though so I can't say if the story is good or not.


It's a borderline case, for me, the one saving grace was a single character named Satou, seems I rated the first season 7/10 and the 2nd 6/10 but that was probably being generous. If you're after a great story this is not it.


The animation is really bad.
It isn't that it is CGI, it is that it is bad CGI with a bad frame rate and a fundamental lack of ability to do even the basics of creating a scene visually without in some major way fucking up.
It only looks fine in select still images. Anything involving movement is wrong and I hate it.

What is the Blade Runner of anime?

Probably GiTS, dumb memer boy.


so what, I saw beastars and didn't mind

ajin's cgi could not possibly be clunkier than beastars'

You might as well watch paint dry.


>You might as well watch paint dry.

Not the guy who posted but yeah he's not the sharpest.
Evangelion, Nadesico, Gundam, I think it's that Utena shit? dunno, lotgh, Lain, Rose of Versailles, Gunbuster and Kare Kano but let me save you time, just watch Lain, rest is too drawn out and shitimo.


What i ment is it's a recommendations thread so how the fuck someone supposed to search stuff based on a 3x3pic with no titles.


I agree, that's why I told you the titles. I meant the other guy is not the sharpest, posting 5 pixels of an anime and hoping people in a recommendation thread to recognize it.

Recently got done watching Black Rock shooter and I enjoyed it. If you do watch it, then you should start with OVA. The reason being, it was Based by a drawing done by Ryohei Fuke. A studio company was inspired by the illustration and created a song a based on the character it portrayed. It gained a lot of popularity by the Japanese audiences. Which went out to get a 50 minute OVA. >>27658


i keep confusing her and hatsune miku when it came out i thought black rock shooter was like her dark side or something






recommendations for super comfy series?


Generally most modern mainstream anime tends to be simply shitty cash grabs. There are however good animes that you might enjoy:
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (similar ridiculous crazy fight scenes)
Re: Cutey Honey (Directed by Hideaki Anno, similar to Kill la Kill plot and action wise)


Prefer original Cutey-Honey


kare kano is pretty good tho, minus the last few eps

Edgyfag here, looking for the most fucked animes that are not Hentai, the most violent/disturbing/misanthropic/morally corrupt stuff you can offer. I love Gantz. Shigurui has some great scenes but it disappointed me in the end. I've also watched Berserk, Monster, Elfen Lied (which apart from the opening scene I didn't like), Paranoia Agent had some good stuff. Should I try Tokyo Ghoul?
Thanks in advance!


You've probably already seen it, but why not try Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi? It's infamous for having graphic torture scenes.


Tried it but it didn't really grab me at the time, maybe I should try again… Thanks!


I didn't like it but I did finish it. It wasn't terrible, but the show was clearly made just to be controversial.

Did someone say edgy?


Yeah feels like it was, edgy and mediocre is never a great combination though…

Not that into the trashy gore angle, more so the mental anguish that surrounds it.


>mental anguish
Aku no hana would be fine then, but it might be too "boring" if you want edgy violence and sex. Belldonna is a strange one but has lots of really edgy satanic rape if that fits your bill.


I thought Aku no Hana was cool, although I'm not looking in that direction currently.

I had Belladona on my to watch list but I didn't know it was edgy, just strange. I will check it out soon.


you seen Texhnolyze?


Shinsekai Yori
Blue Gender
Hunter X Hunter (it gets quite nasty for a shounen at some points)
Perfect Blue
Now and Then, Here and There
Devilman Crybaby
Battle Royale (manga)
Fist of the North Star is pretty violent, not really edgy though


Any short animes with no more than about 6 episodes? I've watched Alien 9, Les Portrait de Petite Cossette, and Denpateki no Kanojo. I don't want comedy or moe, I hate those.


Area 88
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust and Betrayal
The Heroic Legend of Arslan
Gunbuster & Diebuster
Gundam War in the Pocket
Gundam The Origin
Tokyo Marble Chocolate
Cyber City Oedo 808
Yokohama Shopping Journal: Quiet Country Cafe
Birdy the Mighty
Battle Angel Alita OVA
Nightsong of Splendor


If you haven't watched it, fullmetal alchemist is surprisingly fucked up considering how popular it is. I can't really think of many anime that fit the bill though, it's mostly a medium for kids. Ajin is kind of edgy but comes across as a little try hard to me.


I'm really scraping the bottom of the barrel for shows. I've been watching anime for something like 15 years now. Any recommendations at all? Here's a list of all the stuff I've seen


How can you say you're scraping the bottom of the barrel when you haven't even watched many of the big hits like naruto? 100-200 shows is nothing. Literally just watch shows from any basic rec list.


Naruto is the bottom of the barrel. What I'm surprised about is that he hasn't seen anything by Yoshitoshi ABe.
If you like most of the stuff in your list(like Elfen Lied) you might like Deadman Wonderland, Shiki, and to a far lesser degree Another. Shiki is the best of the three, Deadman Wonderland is okay and shares some themes with Elfen Lied, and Another is at least not terrible.


Naruto is good as long as you skip the filler. Those jutsus are just so damn cool. How can you not like that shit?

Anyway I will recommend some titles
Seirei no moribito
Code Geass
Hajime no Ippo
Shinsekai yori
Ergo Proxy
Detroit metal city
kemono no souja Erin
Ginga Eyuu Densetsu
Yakusoku no neverland
Sangatsu no Lion
Vinland Saga
Kimetsu no yaiba
Fate/zero (only one of these worth watching imo)
Ghost in the shell stand alone complex
No game no life
Golden Kamuy
Doulou Dalu
Doupo Cangqiong
Wu Dong Qian Kun
Fanren Xiu Xian Chuan Zhi Fanren Feng Qi Tian Nan
Quanzi Gaoshou
Magi the labyrinth of magic (and sequel)
History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

I'd rate all of those 7 or up.


>Accel World
lol really?

anyway you're not nearly close to the bottom of the barrel, you haven't even scratched the surface for some genres like Mecha and Sci-Fi


>Naruto is good as long as you skip the filler. Those jutsus are just so damn cool. How can you not like that shit?
Okay okay, there are lots of really good action scenes, but I admittedly don't enjoy action anything. I like tight, focused stories.


Happy sugar life perhaps?

Sleepy Princess in the Demon King's Castle.

Serious Recommendation: Saint Seiya. It's 1980s old-school but the fight scenes are brutal.


Cells At Work


Lupin III

Looking for a series about death and mortality. Any suggestions? :)


Romcoms are shit. I want pure romance anime. Real genuine romance, where the slow, heavy, introspective thoughts of the protagonists, falling in love via their interactions, is the impetus and resolution of any "conflict" in the show no matter what form that takes. Stuff like Koikimo, Adachi to Shimamura, Yagate Kimi ni Naru. Yuri not strictly necessary, but still appreciated.

I've only recently awakened to this genre. Please help me out if you know of anything.


Adachi to shimamura is very special I suggest maybe reading Yuri manga since there is not too many good Yuri anime. I have not finished bloom into you but it is praised. Have you seen Citrus? I felt it was bad no romance.


Yesterday wo Utatte (the manga, anime is a rushed adaptation)


Yeah, that shit was awful. Way more interested in melodrama and stupid bullshit instead of telling a good story of two succubi falling in healthy love. Yagate was fantastic though, you should get around to finishing it.

Got any manga suggestions? I'm more an anime guy, but I do read some manga and have been keeping up with some of the newer yuri like Whispering you a love song. Hetero is OK too if you know of any as well.

I hated that anime. It was 11 straight episodes of torture as characters stubbornly gravitated towards people clearly ill-suited for them while blatantly ignoring much healthier relationships. That it corrected itself in the last episode did little to fix my anger. How is the manga different?


I just checked out a website called yurireview and the top 10 list has me downloading a few titles so maybe you could gain from it also


Thanks for the tip off, I'll make sure to check out the site thoroughly. Just from a casual glance at the top 10 though, there seems to be a lot of shows that are subtext-only, or ones that are focused on other story aspects and the yuri is incidental. Not a good sign, but I suppose genuine pure romance is fairly rare so you take what you can get.

I own the movie on VHS and it intrigued me into being into clamp but other than that x is boring, the anime is, the mc is a cunt, and the movie indeed was a wut.filetype shitshow. I've yet to finish the anime and are over 30 now. I might read the manga some day as it takes up less space than tv shows and also is often better than tv shows. Example: Karin and or Chibi Vampire. The anime was fucking abhorrent.

>tfw trying to find a manga called a single fucking letter on x site with bad search engines of current year

My list of animu interests and or seen shows are: *checks thread*

Actually I already probably posted them, better not do it.

Does the japanese dub of Avatar: The Last Airbender count as anime?


Favourite dubbed anime? My wizbrain is too slow for subs these days, plus I like to focus on the animation.


Rurouni Kenshin.


I'm looking for shows without magic or supernatural elements


Little Witch Academia
Flying Witch
Tweeny Witches


Ok but what genera?


Can any one recommend me some anime films worth watching? I want a 90-120 minute movie with a good story and decent animation (I don't mind it being old). I have no interest in Ghibli stuff or other very slow paced or slice of life hippyness. I want something like Terminator 2 or Ghost busters, something you objectively can say are good movies worth watching.

As a Japanese example I would say the latest Pokemon movie was a good movie worth watching. It told a good story, had good characters and had solid animation. Didn't rely on being weird or edgy to get attention. A retelling of The Jungle Book in Pokemon was a good idea and well executed.


File: 1643118832098.jpg (1.62 MB, 2000x2749, 2000:2749, Alpha_029.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Wings of Honneamise


Try sword of the stranger. It's a damn good film.
Steam Boy is also excellent.
I also don't really get what you have against Ghibli stuff, as films like Princess Mononoke and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind were great.
If none of that is your "speed" then try Redline. Super stylish high octane racing anime.


I don't enjoy them. They're very Asian paced story telling and I find that pacing to be off putting even in subjects I usually like.

Redline falls into that edgy/weird over hyped category for me too. I've seen it and don't enjoy it.


Your tastes are pretty narrow and the restrictions you've placed are stuffy. Why don't you just kick back and try to enjoy something, even if it doesn't immediately appeal to you? Heck, I wonder why you're watching anime in the first place…


>Why don't you do this thing you don't like because I like it?


Try M.D Geist. You'll LOVE it.


So you telling me you dislike Sword of the Stranger, Steam Boy, Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and Redline?
But liked Pokemon?
Fine, you just have shit taste.
Find you own shit.


Have you seen Koko? It's a good movie, Pokemon or not it's a good movie. I want to watch a film and say it's a good movie, not a 'good movie for anime".
Looks interesting, I'll give it a try.
I'm not sure this is what I'm looking for. It reminds me a lot of the OAVs Viz/funimation would release in the 90s where nothing happens for almost the entire run time then there would be a few minutes of over the top action. It's the sort of pacing I was trying to avoid since I've watched far too many of those and it's not what I'm after right now.

Thanks for the suggestion.


I swear you are just trolling at this point.


Rakuen Tsuiho (Expelled From Paradise). ~90 minutes sci-fi action film. Although it is largely CGI the animation and visual direction didn't feel lazy or cheap at all.




the recommendations in this thread are awful
