    I've been on an anime rush lately. I finished Noragami a few days ago, wasn't expecting a whole lot out of it, but gosh I lovvvved it. I've been wanting to pick a new series, but I'm not sure where to go now. Suggestions of your favorites?
  2. I need some animu too. Many much animu.

    Anyways, I suggest Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
  3. Tokyo Ghoul, Zankyou no Terror, Hunter x Hunter (2011), Kuroko's Basketball, Persona, FLCL, and Haikyuu!! Those are pretty fun shows, some serious and comedy moments within them. I personally enjoy them! :D Highly recommend HxH though. It has comedy, badass fight scenes (Intelligence and strategy, rare for shonen), and a very good story.

  4. I loved zankyou no terror.
    • Love Love x 1
  5. Automatically have love for you -Falls over-
    • Love Love x 1
  6. I don't watch much anime...

    but I would recommend NaNa, if you like drama, love and music. :)
  7. Mawaru Penguindrum is a pretty fun series :D. It starts out happy but gets darker as the series progresses.

    The story revolves around the Takakura siblings and their quest to find the penguin drum. One day the Takakura bros lose their sister to an illness, but she gets revived by a strange penguin hat. It turns out the penguin hat is the only thing that's keeping her alive. It commands her brothers to find the penguindrum and if they don't listen to it, their precious little sister will die xD

    Plus, just look at these cuties.


    If you haven't seen Shingeki no Kyojin or Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood, they're pretty rad~



    If you're looking for a laugh I suggest Watamote xD

    If you're looking for something like Lucky Star then K-on is pretty neat.

    For something darker there's Hell Girl and if you're looking for feels you should definitely check out Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and Ano Hana.

    The latter is pretty awesome ^^ it's about a bunch of childhood friends who drift apart after one of them dies in an accident

    I'm sorry this is growing to be pretty long xD. If you want something with romance there's Romeo x Juliet.

    It was a pretty cool take on Romeo and Juliet ^^

    And I know you're looking for series, but if you wanna check out some good movies, then everything Studio Ghibli is golden and there's also Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Wolf Children by Madhouse.

  9. Anything by Gainax.

    Here's a list of stuff I liked.

    Neon Genesis: Evangelion, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, FLCL, Mirai Nikki, Little Busters!, and Danganronpa

    There's probably other stuff, but I can't think of it off the top of my head. Some of my friends suggest these to me:

    Toradora, and Serial Experiments Lain

    Not sure, but I'll try!

    The slightly-less-awesome-than-Fate-Zero Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (2014)

    Oh, its moments like this one that make me have hope the UBW will be more awesome than Fate Zero.
  11. Well then I suggest Noragami :p I've only watched Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, Noragmi, and some of Bleach and Deah Note, so my anime suggestions are limited. But yes, Full Metal Alchemist has been highly talked about, so I feel I NEED to watch it. I will give it a go.

    Thank you for these suggestions :) I've heard of Zankyou and HunterxHunter, but not a clue on what they are about.

    Aye, I like all three. I'll add to the list!

    I definitely love darker themes, especially ones where the mood gradually changes, like you had stated for Mawaru Penguindrum and Hell Girl.

    I've seen AoT and I looove it! However, Full Metal Alchemist is one I haven't seen, but have been told I should :p

    Ah, the feels. I'll look into Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and Ano Hana, they seem something I'd like~

    Thank you for these :)

    Seems action packed :D
  12. Packed like a porn star doing analysis

    Or something like that
  13. Fuck all these gay animes.

    If you're into something non-actiony, philosophical, and character driven, watch Monogatari


    It doesn't have a lot of action, but the writing is just so good that the dialogue keeps you hooked. And when it does have action, it's brief and pretty damn intense.

  14. Hah, I was just about to suggest Monogatari as well. While I'm at it, I'll also second the previous picks of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

    Aside from those suggestions, Monster is a great one, easily my favorite anime. None of the crazy over the top nonsense you find in a lot of anime, just a really fucking solid story with great character development.
  15. Baccano.

    Because why NOT have anime set in Chicago gangsterland?


    Even if you hate anime, you love that classy gangster look.

  16. I saw Noragami and figured I'd suggest things somewhat similar. Shonen action comedy. But I second what Jorick and Mr Allen J said; Monogatari and Monster are two good anime to check out. Especially if you want to get away from the over the top stuff.

    Hell Girl is also something I recommend. It's a Supernatural horror...mystery(?), but nothing really over the top.
  17. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is by far my favourite anime of all time.

    Being meguka is suffering... :'(
  18. My suggestions would really depend on the sort of anime you enjoy. There's a huge variety, more than I ever realised until my brother introduced me to more. If you're looking for fantastical, action-packed anime with awesome character development then FMA:B is a must. Watch it before you see anything else; it's what convinced me anime could be as deep and mature as any other form of storytelling medium/style. Somehow it actually lives up to all the hype it gets. As for others to watch, there have already been excellent suggestions from others, so I won't echo them.

    But there's a lot of anime that's not fantastical and has little or no action at all - comedies, dramas, and so on. A personal favourite of mine is Toradora!, which essentially just follows the developing relationships and friendships between a group of high school kids throughout the year. Although in typical anime style it's a bit more OTT than real life, I actually found the characters convincing in their motivations and thoughts and actions. None of them are special snowflakes; all of them are flawed in their own ways, and the show is largely about how those flaws all bounce off one another and the effects it has on the characters as they grow. It's got hilarious moments, and heartwarming ones, and ridiculous ones, just as real life rarely tends to stick to any one mood. Awesome show with great character arcs, in my opinion.

    Clannad also deserves a special mention. Oh my lord, the feels. I've only just started, but gaaahhh my eyes have gone oh-so-misty oh-so-many times.

    Daily Lives of High School Boys (Danshi Kōkōsei no Nichijō) is also hilarious. It's just little shorts/sketches following a bunch of high schoolers, but damn it made me laugh, and you actually get weirdly attached to the characters by the end.
  19. Keeping in mind all the classics that people always suggest, I recommend Space Dandy.
