Specifically at the moment I'm looking for anime dealing with world domination or military/political conquest. I've enjoyed pretty much every one I've watched with that theme eg Code Geass, TTGL, No Game No Life, LOGH, Berserk, Magi, etc. I'm open to other suggestions as well though.
I don't need it to include all of my likes or avoid all my dislikes, just not be too excessive. I'm pretty indifferent to bad CGI/animation as long as the substance is good. Thank you in advance for any suggestions you might give me.
I'm looking for a show that is about genuine platonic love. Brotherhood, etc.
The boy who saw the winds, memories, the wind named amnesia are alright views
I’m 9 episodes in on watching Violet Evergarden in Spanish.
You know I think I finally get why this show resonates with me so well: It’s the first time since I can even remember that I’ve seen an anime of that caliber and in that language chronologically. This is dating back to when I was starting Elementary school and would watch Pokemon, Dragonball Z, or even Sailor Moon for that matter.
Just thinking about how richly detailed, whether modern or classic, these anime scenes were, as well as the emotional weight of a character’s death, almost even brought me back to the blurry days of Knights of the Zodiac.
The irony is that I kind of didn’t want to finish watching this show out of lost interest (and me trying not to return to the past since it wasn’t exactly a picnic around the time I watched those shows), but since I had mad respect for Kyoto Animation’s vigor despite that horrible event earlier this year, and having made it more than halfway into the series, I kept going.
I’m glad I did since despite the added CGI textures and digital shading, that same abundance of effort put into detail once again testifies to, as Keanu Reeves’s Klaatu from The day the earth stood still, would put it:
“Nothing ever truly dies. The Universe wastes nothing, everything is simply transformed.”
goblin slayer is very overrated after episode 1 nothing happens
The second season was alright but it took almost to full first season for them to really figure out what they wanted to do with the show or how to work with their limited resources.
I don't see how it is overrated. It is a excellent fantasy show that seems to be very loosely based on old school school revival table top role playing games.
AKA everything is deadly, the PCs are all too fragile, and it takes wits, caution, and planing to make it out a dungeon alive.
I enjoyed it because it had the protagonist be clever and pragmatic to come out on top rather then the usual over powered MC magic bullshit that are all too common in action anime.
Then on top of that you have heavy psychological themes which I am a sucker for when done well.
It does have it's flaws as all things do ( flat supporting characters come to mind), it is still well above average to the level of a good show that I have no problem recommending it to people who can handle mature media.
Besides, it wasn't the violence but that one scene in the first episode that triggered the phonies and sjw.
there is an ova or something, it was cool, reminded me of some wacky stuff i see in dwarf fortress
Looking for a very comfy series. Any suggestions?
Is serial experiments lain as good as people say it is?
No, it's pretty dumb and boring. Whoever wrote it does not understand the difference between technology and magic. It's nothing like ghost in the shell which has a coherent sci-fi universe. It's a jumbled mess which puts in gratuitous shots of nothing happening to trick people into thinking its deep. It could possibly be seen as allegorical for various types of mental illnesses like dissociative disorder or schizophrenia but that doesn't make it interesting or clever imo.
It's all down to the atmosphere it evokes. If you're looking for a depressive, bluescreen glow techparanormal fix, then yeah, you're definitely going to enjoy it. It's really good at that. Lain and Kairo are probably my favorite media in that sort of downer horror sci-fi evoking early internet era or the fascination for it. It really gives you an extra if you actually used stuff like crt monitors and dial-up internet access back in the day.>>34601>Whoever wrote it does not understand the difference between technology and magic.
It's called fiction and obviously a deliberate premisse for the plot.
No they hate it because in their fragile liberal minds they perceive goblins as muslims
What shit taste. You are pretty much describing about aria the animation to a tee. >No story>Characters claiming they are working hard to get into a profession, while slacking off most of the time>Is on a teraformed planet, despite this, Akari (14 years of age) didnt even know what a meteorite was>Is braindead sol>Is a blend of fantasy/sci-fi in the worst possible way
Yes, but only if you have imagination and are willing to read extra/dig into the show. Some people like >>34601
can't understand that SEL truly doesn't want to be "scifi" or any other genre. Lain doesn't care about plot, characters, setting, or anything like that really. There are only two things SEL cares about: it's themes and the feeling it presents with it's atmosphere. If you value plot, coherent world building, and such related things above all else then you will dislike SEL. It's not that kind of show, and doesn't even attempt to be. The aspects it cares about, man does it fucking hit them with a homerun. Like perfect 11/10 tier.
The blending of internet and reality, if one is who they think they are, if who others say they are is who they are, if their actions are who they are, the social isolation that internet brings, the strange groups or cults that appear because extreme people segregate with other extreme people on the internet, and much more. Lain IS deep, regardless of whatever insincere ironic shitposters say; but only for those who put effort into finding things for themselves. "Deep" shows mean exactly what they mean, that it requires effort to uncover or dig up what it has to offer. If want to watch it once and understand everything, then don't bother with deep shows.
Being deep doesn't mean it's good, but people like deep shows because you have to put yourself into what you are consuming. It's not just "someone else's story", it's almost become something you discovered and crafted while digging into it. Your interpretations of the stories and events are now attached to the story, so you become attached to that thing you did not create. Which is why people who enjoy SEL will tell you they LOVE LAIN.

Sounds like you want Star Trek but anime….
Been looking for a high magic fantasy with good art and/or animation.
Looking for reverse harem anime with good music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc1FvrL4EqA
Does it have to be harem? Or is female-oriented romance sufficient?
Reverse harem is for faggots or succubi.
Not even for faggots, literally a genre solely for succubi.
I remember when RECORD OF LODOSS WARS & SLAYERS was the best at this.>>37340
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! - Ending
tl,dr: Female MC stuck in a game in the role of antagonist & gets a reverse harem by accident. Also all the succubi are gay for her
saiunkoku monogatari was one of the few reverse harem anime that were kind of tolerable to me, though I found the music meh.
It is 95% court intrigue though, so if you aren't into that you are in for a bad time.
Okay well, these aren't really harem but both Akatsuki no Yona and Norn9 have excellent soundtracks and female main characters with attractive male love interests.
Akatsuki no Yona in particular I would definitely recommend.
Idolish7 has a female MC surrounded by bishounen characters, but there is very little actual romance. The music is good though.
Both Harukanaru Toki no Naka de and Magic-kyun Renaissance are reverse-harem shows with good music, but tbh neither of them have broad appeal and I would hesitate to recommend them. They do satisfy your precise criteria though.
People told me Blood+ is better. Haven't looked into it yet though. Last few episodes of Blood C were nice.
the only good thing about Blood C is the opening and ending imo
I like detective work in anime but 90% of them fail because it involves supernatural. Detective Conan being the most obvious exception.
That show's writing was helariously bad and so was most of the show beyond the the gore. >>37380
Blood+ has better writing but is super melodramatic at times and the animation isn't as good as the shorter projects.
The only real reason I didn't like it all that much is because I was expecting it to be like Blood the last vampire when it came out, which it really isn't.
